Agent Profile

Joshua is a dedicated Broker and Realtor with a background in real estate finance and a reputation for exceptional customer service. His passion for enriching his clients’ lives through real estate motivates his dedication to his profession. He has built his career on the motto “Respect. Integrity. Good Faith.”

Joshua specializes in educating his buyers and sellers on the challenges and opportunities present at any given time. Drawing on his considerable experience, he knows how to position his clients in the current competitive market boom in San Francisco, and he remembers lessons from the recession driven market bust. No matter what the external market conditions, Josh works diligently to position his clients for the best possible results. He utilizes a broad skill set to thoroughly assess the circumstances and relative affordability of each transaction. His dedicated preparation, presentation, and negotiation skills ensure his clients accomplish their goals under the most favorable conditions.

He services buyers and sellers through a thorough assessment of their circumstances, affordability, and goals; exhaustive research on the available alternatives for a clients’ needs; diligent process monitoring and persistent follow-up among all parties to the transaction to ensure timely closings, satisfied customers, and referrals. By focusing on the details of a transaction and guiding the process, he allows his clients to manage the adjustments to their lives without the added stress of the transaction.

In 2005, Joshua founded an independent brokerage in Southern California which represented buyers and sellers in a wildly fluctuating market. Prior to that, he worked in mortgage lending, wine sales and distribution, and sports marketing for ESPN, T-Mobile, and the NBA. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a minor in Philosophy from California State University, Fullerton. He has traveled throughout Europe and the Americas and loves live music, snowboarding, and his two dogs. He lives in Potrero Hill with his wife, Ariel, and their sweet baby James.

The fluidity of every transaction, as no two deals are the same. With different markets, property types, and clients, I learn something new every day.
