We had a great experience working with Joshua for the sale of our first home and purchase of our second. He was not only extremely knowledgable, but very approachable and trustworthy. He made great recommendations in preparing our home for listing which led to selling over asking, and helped us get into our new house with confidence and expertise. We have recommended him to many friends already. Thank you Josh! - Glenn & Amber Brownread more
My wife and I have been close friends with Josh for years. Although many would suggest that working with friends is not wise. It was different with Josh. We knew that we would be working with someone that treated us the same as anyone else, friends or not. He listened, he empathized and understood our needs. He was able to bring calm to an otherwise stressful situation. We would recommend him to anyone we know. - Brandon & Jodi Chapmanread more
We had our house listed over a year and decided to take it off because it was late fall. We gave 2 realtors a chance with only 1 low-ball offer. Our banker recommended Joshua so we decided to try again even though it was heading into winter. When we met, he was so professional, and personable and left us with the feeling that he knew what he was talking about. Were we right about him!!! He paid for a stager (not all do) and went the extra with a coloured booklet with pictures. He was even doing his homework and marketing BEFORE it hit realtor.ca. We went on vacation to Florida on the Thursday following the listing Monday. Monday until the Thursday we had 2 showings a day, and not even a week listed, while in Florida, we had 2 offers!!! And this was all while he was on a cruise. He even texted 2 days after the deal was done while he was on the cruise. Unbelievable!!! Choosing Joshua will be a decision that you will not regret!!! We can not thank you enough!! Nick & Connie - Nick & Connie Pozzebonread more
The whole experience of working with Joshua was terrific! There’s nothing like working with someone that listens to your needs and will find a way to accommodate them. Thanks to Joshua, we are now able to build our dream home on beautiful waterfront lot. I can’t thank him enough for all the hard and honest work he did for us. Call him, he’s great! - Richard Jochread more
We met Josh through a mutual acquaintance, and that was our lucky day! Although we lived in Georgetown, after our first meeting with him we decided he was the agent who would sell our property and find us a new one that suited the life transition that we were making. He gave us very solid advice in terms of getting the house ready to sell, and on setting the selling price, and it sold in record time and at a record price. He showed us one perfect home in the area that we were looking in, and we are now happily settled in our new home thanks to Josh. Josh is a very dedicated and professional real estate agent, and we would highly recommend him to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a property. - Jayne Brownread more
I've had the pleasure of knowing Josh for many years. He is always one of my "go to" realtors for Kelowna clients needing real estate services in the Newmarket/Aurora areas. - Jaime Briggsread more
