“For most people. a Real Estate purchase can be an arduous, emotional, and occasionally even traumatic experience. Committing to a long-term mortgage, a new neighborhood, and unfamiliar schools for your children all add up to a 10 on the stress meter, not to mention to act of moving itself.
I have gone through the home purchasing process six times in Southern California over the last 20 years with varying degrees of success, ranging from abysmal to fantastic, the latter being with Josiah Hamilton as my agent. Seldom do you meet someone who has a passion for what they do and a perfect environment in which to express it. Josiah’s vast knowledge of the real estate business, architecture, and the housing market , coupled with his enthusiasm, resulted in him finding me the perfect house. Josiah was recommended to me by several friends who had recently purchased homes.
We sat down and discussed my sense of style and the type of neighborhood I preferred he showed me all of the options available in my price range. He also took me on a tour of the different areas and explained the pluses and minuses of each and which locations had the most potential in terms of growth and value. After that initial meeting he continued to scour the listings and e-mailed me information on homes that were suited to my design aesthetic and my budget. Shortly thereafter, he found the ideal property and helped me negotiate a great deal. After the deal closed, Josiah stayed in touch, offering recommendations on contractors for home repair, landscapers, pool technicians, and even the best stores for furniture. After buying the first home, I fell in love with the area, and when I wanted to upgrade a year later, Josiah found another amazing property using his same diligent approach that perfectly suited my needs. He was able to sell my first house in a short period of time at an above market price and negotiate my second purchase to close simultaneously. In short, Josiah Hamilton is a pleasure to work with. He listens and he cares, and will be tireless in his pursuit of finding your dream home.”
