"Josh was excellent to work with through the entire process of buying a home. He was honest in setting realistic expectations based on our needs and our budget. We were moving from several hours away but he kept us informed and was always available to answer question and was flexible in working with our schedule when we were able to do in person visits to multiple homes to view. Once we found the place we wanted he was a great help in getting the offer in and facilitating the paperwork. He went above and beyond even after the sale in helping us relocate. I would not hesitate in recommending Josh in the future to anyone looking for a honest hard working realtor."

"Josh helped me buy my townhouse in October 2016, I couldn't have been more pleased with how helpful, trustworthy and friendly he was during the entire transaction. I would honestly refer him to any of my friends and family. I will definitely have him list my home once I'm ready to upgrade."

"*** I really hope you read this review! *** Josh is a very polite, trustworthy and hard working guy. From start to finish he was always very informative and straight forward which I really appreciate. We had some issues with the buyers agent and some additional requests and he handled them personally. I was at work and wasn't able to go over to the place, he happily did it for me. I really felt as if he was there to help me any way he could. If you want your home selling or buying to be quick, easy and enjoyable, THIS YOUR GUY! "

"He is very helpful, knowledgeable, and a great person to work with. He went out his way to help out with paperwork and made sure with inspections we had the right person do it. He took time to explain what all was needed in the process of buying a new home. He responded quickly when I needed to reach out to him. Would definitely use him again to sell or buy another house!"
