About Josh

Whether I’m working with current owners needing to sell (and sometimes sell and buy) or future homeowners, my passion for getting results for my clients is what drives me.

I “cut” my real estate teeth  in Boston Proper, one of the most demanding seller’s markets in the country. As Buyer Specialist and Listing Coordinator for a Top 5 real estate team in Massachusetts, I produced over $19 Million in sales in just over two years while managing 58 listing transactions from contract to close (from coordinating media to organizing the hundreds of tasks associated with closing a listing). My career highlight was as a sales team member of The Lancaster – a 55-unit condo development that sold out in less than 15 days (with record sales prices). I was also honored to appear as a guest on CBS Boston’s Real Estate Radio show.

I grew up in working class family and community in Fostoria, Ohio, where I learned the importance of hard work and gratitude, and I never take it for granted! In 2016, I was honored to go home and serve as commencement speaker for the Fostoria High School Class of 2016.

I currently reside in Clintonville with my wife Lindsay (an Upper Arlington native whose family has been intimately involved with Columbus real estate since the 1920’s) and our daughters. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Ohio Wesleyan University, where I was a two-time football lettermen (GO BISHOPS), served as President of Sigma Chi’s Gamma Chapter, worked in the Ohio Senate, and spent a semester studying abroad at the University of Paris IV, “La Sorbonne.”

I am a member of the National, Ohio and Columbus REALTOR® boards, and hold the Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®), Seller Representative Specialist, and Certified Renovation Expert designations. I’m also a member of the Northwest Area Realty Association (Upper Arlington, Grandview Heights) and the Midtown Real Estate Association (downtown Columbus).

When I’m not working on my business or with clients, I love spending time with my family and our dog, Brutus. I’m an avid fisherman and sports enthusiast (especially football, baseball and boxing) and am grateful to be able to live such a rich and fulfilling life in the greatest country on earth.

I’d love the opportunity to work with you, so let’s chat!
