Buyer & Seller

I'll lead off by saying that I have a background in real estate and so have often represented myself in transactions, and prior to working with Josh would have advocated that approach to anyone who felt comfortable with the process. In this instance we were looking in an area that I had very little familiarity with (Mill Valley/Southern Marin) and so decided to meet a few agents just to see if we could get a better lay of the land. We spoke to several, and while helpful we decided we would again go it alone. Then a friend introduced us to Josh and we sat down for a chat. We came away from that chat deeply impressed and I believe, based on the experience that followed, it was the most productive/important 30 minutes of our search. The very next day we reconvened and Josh took us house-to-house neighborhood-by-neighborhood through Mill Valley all the while giving us the full lay of the lan…

We spoke to several, and while helpful we decided we would again go it alone. Then a friend introduced us to Josh and we sat down for a chat. We came away from that chat deeply impressed and I believe, based on the experience that followed, it was the most productive/important 30 minutes of our search. The very next day we reconvened and Josh took us house-to-house neighborhood-by-neighborhood through Mill Valley all the while giving us the full lay of the land and the important characteristics (balanced, including positive and negative) of each submarket. We had scoured Zillow, Redfin, Trulia etc. and thought we had seen all the current listings, were we wrong. With Josh's network and knowledge we were able to gather way more information and insight into the quality of public listings we had found and saw that there was a whole set of available homes which you will not find or see without his help. It really opened our eyes and amongst that hidden set we found our gem. By gem, I mean the house we loved is a diamond in the rough, and that's where negotiation and due diligence got really interesting. Josh helped us establish the fair market range for the house and then frame negotiations/tell our story to achieve a successful deal at the lowest possible price (super important in a market as competitive as Mill Valley/Southern Marin). Once we had the deal signed up, we had to go top to bottom on the home in due diligence and Josh coordinated the entire process to run smoothly, well within the time frame allowed, and to leave no stone unturned. He also provided a valuable third perspective during the negations and due diligence, continuing to show us other opportunities and make sure that we had indeed selected the right home for us. This is a critical point because many agents, once a deal is signed up just want to get to close and payday. Josh instead, kept coming back to us to make sure we were feeling good and that this was the right home for us and our family and future. He really demonstrated his commitment to getting us settled in the right spot. All-in-all, Josh's fully tailored high-service low-pressure approach combined with his deep understanding of the market and visibility into the range of opportunities on-market, off-market and upcoming makes him the first call anyone should make when looking in Marin. It was the best call we made and it landed us our perfect spot! In the words of my two-year old "Tanks you Josh."

Josh and his team are the best real estate professional team you will find anywhere spare none! Josh is engaging, brilliant, creative, responsive, diligent, and bestows high integrity. From day 1, he walked through the home providing detailed suggestions on how to optimize the aesthetic to maximize appeal these were practical, affordable, and actionable recommendations. He helped us think through pricing by discussing comps and listening to our short and long-term goals. Without exception, Josh and his team were extremely responsive to all communications (emails, texts, and phone calls). We had originally planned to wait until the next sale cycle (spring) to sell our home, then decided to put the home on the market immediately. Josh responded to this change in plan with ease, kindness, and excellence in the quality and speed of execution. He devised and masterfully executed a marketing p…

We had originally planned to wait until the next sale cycle (spring) to sell our home, then decided to put the home on the market immediately. Josh responded to this change in plan with ease, kindness, and excellence in the quality and speed of execution. He devised and masterfully executed a marketing plan. In the end, the team's engagement resulted in over 2500 views (on Zillow alone) with over 250 people people "saving" our home in the first 7 days on the market. We had a full schedule of prospective buyers each day, multiple requests for disclosures and even requests to submit pre-emptive offers. Spectacular success thanks to Josh and team unfortunately, at that moment, we had a change in personal circumstances, and decided therefore not to sell our home even under these unusual circumstances, Josh responded with kindness and grace. He is a exceptional person and highly accomplished professional. He operates with the highest integrity and executed masterfully in our professional relationship. I recommend Josh and his team without hesitation and look forward to working with him again.

I would highly recommend Joshua without any reservation. He and his team were extremely competent, responsive, thoughtful, and a pleasure to work with. They helped us focus on the preparation details that actually mattered, and greatly simplified the complex, administrative aspects that didn’t. They have terrific, local market knowledge, understand pricing strategy and negotiation, and were 100% honest and high integrity in every aspect of the process. If anything, I initially underestimated the critical role that a real estate agent plays in the outcome of a home sale. I’ve been in business for over 30 years and noticed in particular the skillful communication Josh brought to bear in the final, delicate, stage of the process where things can either go well or go off the rails. The offer stage was pretty intense, complex, and fast moving and watching Josh in action made me truly apprecia…

He is trusted and respected by other agents and that translates into high quality interactions that in the end, made a huge difference. He is a pro’s pro and is supported by an outstanding team of specialists that bring the right skills to bear at the right time. Importantly, they were also all accessible and highly responsive throughout the process. I can honestly say they are an extraordinary team and I’m very grateful we chose to work with them.

I can't say enough great things about Josh, but here are some important observations: First, he is the broker to have if you want to live in Mill Valley. Walking down the street with Josh in downtown Mill Valley is like walking around with the mayor. He seems to know everyone, and he knows what properties are on the market, coming on the market, and even some that never hit the market. Second, he spent a ton of time with us, getting to know us on a personal level, driving us around, negotiating and closing our deal, and helping us with renovation plans and ideas. Third, when we found a house we liked, he was on it like a bulldog, in constant contact with us and the other side (even while he was on vacation), and negotiated a great deal. We only had to put in one offer to get a house we loved, which as two busy parents, we really appreciated. Fourth, Josh is also a successful developer an…

We only had to put in one offer to get a house we loved, which as two busy parents, we really appreciated. Fourth, Josh is also a successful developer and builder in Mill Valley, which is incredibly helpful both during and after the sale process. Fifth, while our house is on the lower-end of the price spectrum in Mill Valley, and Josh deals in much larger and more expensive properties, he never made us feel like we were anything but his most valuable clients. Sixth, and most important, Josh is simply a lovely and fun person to spend time with.

From the moment we met Josh to talk about our unconventional and challenging home sale situation, my husband and I felt a sense of ease and optimism. Josh's inherently positive view had rubbed off on us. As we discussed the intricacies and complications of our scenario, Josh confidently and expertly guided us toward a solution that, in the end, proved an enormous success. While I was initially surprised by the ease with which he accurately assessed the value and significance of a whole list of the characteristics pertaining to our home sale, I quickly came to trust his intuitive, expert understanding of the real estate market. In time I recognized that his market intuition included an array of characteristics not limited to home values, but also included home aesthetics, home construction, and, more importantly, a sense of what people want. Perhaps his greatest strength is in his ability…

Perhaps his greatest strength is in his ability to work with people. A diplomat at heart, Josh skillfully works through negotiations. Through the process of selling our home it became clear to us that Josh enjoys helping people achieve their goals. My husband and I have agreed, over and over again, how lucky we were to have worked with Josh. Thank you Josh!
