Josh was a great help to us. Very honest and reliable. We felt very confident that he always had our best interests in mind. He always provided us with updates and was available whenever we needed. We were in a rush situation where we had to sell our condo quickly. Josh's expertise and advice helped us tremendously. We were able to sell our condo in 2 days and above the asking price. As my wife and I start our young family, building a nice home is vital towards a strong foundation. With Josh's help, we can now move to our new house in Newmarket and start this new chapter in our lives. Thanks Josh! - Jeff Chanread more
