My Property Finder





My husband and I met Josh 2 months ago when he texted me after I showed interest in a home on Zillow that happened to be in his neighborhood. We had purchased our previous home without the help of any realtors; and I had recently sold a condo via the For Sale By Owner (FSBO) method; so I was leaning towards representing ourselves on our next home purchase and sale. But since Josh was a resident of the neighborhood we were scoping out, we gave him the opportunity. By the end of our first meeting with Josh, we knew he was going to be our realtor for both the purchase of our new home and also the sale of the house we have just now sold. The best way I can describe his handling of our interests is to recall that saying, “Jesus, take the wheel” and insert Josh’s name. He managed every detail of the process at a microscopic level and made sure we did our due diligence of carefully thinking through every decision that needed to be made. He even saved us from making bad decisions along the way, and we’ve been richly rewarded as a result. I can say with confidence that I would not be writing this review from the balcony of our dream home while fanning myself with the check from today’s closing on our previous home if I had foolishly gone the FSBO route. And my husband and I wouldn’t have such a wonderful new friend and neighbor in Josh McKay. Anyone thinking about buying or selling a house would be wise to give Josh a call. He and his lovely partner and wife, Leighton, who did an exceptional job as his backup, will make miracles happen.
