Josie was a client of mine and I knew once I was ready to sell my home, I wanted to use her because I felt she was trustworthy and would take care of my family. Last year was hard for us. My husband was diagnosed with aggressive cancer and I had to leave my career to care for him full time while he went through treatments, surgeries, and hospital stays. I became a bit panicked when the medical bills started rolling in. I thought it might be a good idea to sell and possibly move closer to my family, but I didn't really have a plan. I called Josie and told her I wanted her to sell my home. Josie could have made a good sum of money off of us, our home had grown in value quite a bit and I know she had a line of people wanting a 3/2. I shared my situation with her and I was shocked when she told me she didn't think selling my home was the best idea for my family right now. and she was right. I will forever be grateful to her for putting my family's needs before her own, really considering my situation and the incredible amount of stress we were under. She recommended we instead look into lowering our interest rate and offered other home-saving advice to help with our medical bills. We are still in our home a year later. When we are ready to sell, Josie will be the one we will call.Jen
Josie is an absolute rock star. We’ve worked with other Realtors® in the past and we’ll never have to stress out through the process again. Josie went above and beyond to help us find our dream home! Despite the real estate market’s crazy ups and downs, we still found and closed on our home in a few short months. She was able to get us in to see properties asap (sometimes only hours after sending us the homes) and was able to assist us with the process every step of the way! It was also a huge plus that she was super knowledgeable about home structures, remodeling, prices of homes in that particular area, etc. So we felt safe with knowing there was no way she would let us buy a “lemon” that would never work with what we were looking for or that wouldn’t get it’s money back for that area. She was honest, beyond helpful, one of the nicest people to work with, and professional throughout everything! We would recommend Josie 1000 times over.Buyer
Josie did an excellent job asking questions, listening, and distilling my scattered ideas of what I was looking for into a list of a wide range of properties to see. Many of them were appealing, one so much that an offer was made and accepted less than 24 hours after the showing. Josie works very hard for her clients, literally around the clock, and stays on top of every detail through the closing of the sale and beyond. Josie is exceptionally professional, friendly, and courteous, and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the Sarasota area. I highly recommend Josie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Best Realtor® ever.Jay T.
Josie has assisted us with relocating our primary home and 1031 exchange rental properties to Sarasota. She has demonstrated an outstanding knowledge base in the Sarasota real estate market for both condos and homes, was amazingly responsive in collecting and showing us the relevant listings, and was a thorough researcher and knowledgeable advisor when it came to assemble and negotiate the offers. I recommend Josie without hesitation based on my experience with her as a buyer's agent.Brent K.
Josie was amazing, we were purchasing our house from upstate NY I truly believe had it not been for Josie and her help, knowledge, and hard work our deal would have fallen through. She made everything as easy as she could for us. She’s a gem! Josie went above and beyond in every aspect of the purchase of our house. Along with taking us to numerous homes before we found our dream house. Always patient and kind. She was just amazing.T. Johnston
Josie is extremely knowledgeable about the listings in her area. She listens well and is able to match her clients with appropriate listings. Josie wants to do more than make a sale she wants to make the right sale for her people. We met Josie as walk-ins to her office and we could not have been more fortunate or better cared for. This lady is the one you want to work with. There is no doubt in our minds.Mary & Bernie
Working with Josie had been an absolute pleasure. We have worked with other Realtors® in the past, including for the sale of our siesta key home, however, we wish we would have had Josie handle these sales! She is a knowledgeable, practical, Savvy, and astute Realtor®, She gave us accurate direct feedback, provided great attention to detail, and sold our condo in record time. We highly recommend her!Joanna K.

I want to thank you for referring the perfect agent for Lauren and Ben. Josie listened to their needs and wants. She thoroughly educated them about the area. Not only that; she found them a home. They did not really expect to find one on this trip but Josie did her magic. You have a real star in your office that needs special recognition! Thanks again.C. Carey
