"*** 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! "

"Josh is a great realtor to work with. He asked what I was looking for and price range and we started getting to work as soon as we could. He knew the importance of time for my situation. He is friendly and patient. I asked a bunch of questions, multiple times and he answered each one in ways that I could understand them. I have already recommended him to all my friends and family. If I am to buy a new house again I will make sure to look him up and use him again. I wouldn't go anywhere else."

"I emailed a random realtor about a property and by happenstance it was Josh who received my email. This turned out to be the best situation for my husband and myself. I was immediately impressed by Josh's responsiveness and resourcefulness. You can truly tell that Josh is passionate about his job and his clients. He digs in and finds you the information you need and is truly has your best interests in mind. As we were going through the process of looking at homes, Josh was very observant of what things we liked, didn't like and asked us questions about homes we hadn't even thought about. He found us our dream home! Also, he was up beat, friendly and funny the entire time we meet with him. It really made the whole process very enjoyable! I would absolutely recommend him (and have!) to anyone moving to the DSM and surrounding areas for a realtor."
