Josh West

Josh began his career in real estate in 2007. Having started as an individual agent, he quickly learned all the aspects of the job and as his career took off he knew he had to start to assemble an incredible team to support his growing business. 

One of Josh’s greatest strengths is his ability to problem solve. When purchasing or selling a home, no two transactions are ever the same and there can be many factors that can interrupt a deal. Over the years, Josh has consistently been the trusted and allied resource that his clients have counted on. It’s no coincidence that any time Vanilla Ice’s ‘Ice Ice Baby’ starts to play you will absolutely find Josh throwing down the lyrics “If there was a problem Yo, I’ll solve it” and it never fails, he always finds a way. 

Josh believes in the importance of knowing the market and studies it daily to provide his clients with clear, logical advice to best assist them. He is consistently praised for his honesty, integrity, and efficiency which has led him to a business that is rich with referrals and repeat business. Josh has been a top-producing agent since 2008, yielding him many awards in his office and nationwide.
