Meet Gigi, my spunky gray tabby, and Bourbon, my rough-around-the-edges 14lb scaredy-cat. Gigi and I have been sending out monthly postcards to celebrate fun and unusual holidays throughout the year since 2014, and Bourbon joined us in 2019! These tiny morsels of mail have been adding a bit of cat-spice to mailboxes around the country each month. Let me know if you’d like to start receiving them too!

Helped me buy a Single Family home in Moorlands, Kenmore, WA.

I can’t imagine having a better experience with an agent. Josie was all the things you would expect; attentive, responsive, knowledgeable-however she also provided humor, detailed process insight, and of greatest value, friendship. She took time, day and evening, to understand the needs of all members of our family, and when we house hunted with the kids, she would even hold the baby! You won’t find that everywhere. We were so lucky to have someone as caring, honest and easy to work with as Josie to guide us through this adventure. We would and will work with her again and again!

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Kenmore, WA.

Josie helped us buy our dream home and sell our condo in one massive effort and is the most delightful human I've ever gotten to work with. I wish more people I worked with were as charming and perfect at their jobs as Josie is at hers. We got the home of our dreams and in the buying process she helped us navigate kind of finicky sellers, but when she really shined was selling our condo. I was overwhelmed with my job and my life so she arranged the carpet cleaning I was supposed to do, she arranged the rest of the cleaning, the interior designer to stage the condo, and the real estate specific photographer that between all of them, we almost cancelled the listing and bought the rented furniture it looked so good AND THEN OUR CONDO SOLD IN 28 HOURS!!! The seller offered $5k over asking and removed all contingencies from their offer. Are you kidding me? AND THEN we closed a week early! Truly amazing. I cannot recommend Josie highly enough. Not picking Josie would be a mistake.

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Whittier Heights, Seattle, WA.

Josie LaRosa is a highly skilled and effective agent/broker. She represented me through the entire process from listing and selling my Seattle home through the subsequent purchase of a new home 60 miles north of Seattle, all in exactly four weeks. She provided a full service package including determining the correct sale price, lining up inspections and a staging service, holding open houses, shopping for a new property, negotiating purchase and sale agreements, and coordinating closing services for both transactions. When I was unsure or uneasy, she calmly provided complete explanations and assurance allowing me to quickly make necessary decisions. I very highly recommend Josie LaRosa.

Brooke Eder

Bought a Condo home in 2019 in Fremont, Seattle, WA.

Josie was a dream to partner with in the search for my dream condo. I told her exactly what I was looking for and she found the perfect spot in my top location that checked all of the boxes. As a first time buyer, she took the time to explain every part of the process and made me feel comfortable and relaxed throughout. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend working with Josie in your search for the perfect home.

Emily Gunn

Bought a Condo home in 2018 in Moorlands, Kenmore, WA.

Josie was a dream to work with! She was ready to meet as soon as we were available and flexible for our schedules. She helped expedite the offer process so we were able to move quickly once we decided on homes we liked, and was always paying attention to details and even caught a couple things my husband and I wouldn’t have otherwise noticed. She was easy to communicate with and I loved her so much I now keep a stack of her business cards to refer friends and acquaintances looking for new homes!

Laura Cook

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Victory Heights, Seattle, WA.

Josie was a joy to work with! She is professional, personable, and incredibly positive and encouraging – all of which was much appreciated as first time home buyers. She helped us understand the challenging Seattle market and navigate the complexities of the home buying process and was always available when we needed her. Josie pushed us outside of our comfort zone in terms of houses and areas in the city and ultimately find the perfect house. We are so thankful for all the work and time she dedicated to us and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy in the Seattle area!

Carla Wyatt-Cannaday

Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Snohomish, WA.

I would work with Josie again in a heartbeat! She is professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. She truly cares about her clients and it shows. She made the process of selling our home so much less stressful! She knows exactly what to do to get your home sold fast and to make it shine above the competition.

Kylie Lewis

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Federal Way, WA.

Josie helped us list our home and close within a month! She was also able to negotiate the winning offer for us on our dream property! We would absolutely work with her again.
