Gigi & Bourbon Postcards

Meet Gigi, my spunky gray tabby, and Bourbon, my rough-around-the-edges 15lb 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!

Josie is everything you want when looking for a real estate agent.

She is knowledgeable, kind, resourceful and goes the extra mile for her clients. Josie has helped us both buy and sell properties and each time our experience has been beyond excellent.

Helped me sell a Single-Family home in Everett, WA & helped me buy a Single-Family home in Lake Stevens, WA

Josie is amazing! She helps every step of the way and genuinely cares. She helped us sell and buy our house. She helped with everything even pending us her lawn care equipment to help get the house ready for the market. She made us feel comfortable with every step of the process.

I’ll never use another realtor again.

Helped me buy a Single-Family home in Shoreline, WA

Josie was great to work with! She helped us find a new house very quickly. She came up with creative solutions in negotiating that helped us save money while still being competitive.

I highly recommend Josie.

Helped me sell a Cabin in Granite Falls, WA

This is our fourth time buying or selling with Josie. She is the very best agent anyone could ask for.

Since we now live on the east coast, she is one of the people we are going to miss the most! She will be impossible to replace. Work with Josie, and experience for yourself what is hard to put into words...she is a wonderful human and you couldn't be in better hands.

Beth & Steve Frank

Helped us buy a Condo in Seattle, WA

We were so fortunate to meet Josie at an open house. She became our realtor right away. She really went the extra mile for us, even knowing we wouldn’t be buying for another 6 months. We were new to Seattle, and she showed us property all over the city - never hesitating about the location. She is fun, organized, knowledgeable, and experienced. We are so appreciative of her. She found us our ideal property, before it went on the market, due to her perseverance and ability to connect with people.

We highly recommend Josie! She will find the right home for you.

Josie is a wonderful realtor. She helped us to accomplish our goal.

I would recommend her to my friends and relatives.

Kamelia Vineva

Helped me buy a Condo/ Townhouse in Shoreline, WA

Josie is great! I would point out two things that I believe make her better than other agents: 1) She will listen very carefully and if you don't really know what you are looking for, she will be able to figure out. For me this was very helpful, since I knew nothing. 2) She understands that we have seller's market now. She would write offers in the evening after long day touring houses, so we don't miss our chances. She will tour on the weekends without rushing. She will make it work. We had great experience and I am forever grateful for the excellent job done.

Ranate Loomis

Helped me buy a Single-Family home in Tukwila, WA

Where to begin! Josie was an incredible agent throughout our whole experience. Not only did she help get a perfectly tailored list of houses to help our dream house shine through, but she also met us bright and early the very next morning when we found said home. We were able to get a counter offer that we felt great about accepting as Josie even worked through her vacation! She also met us for our inspection in a snowstorm, truly going above and beyond throughout the whole experience. There were also two unprecedented lender hiccups that were outside of our control and Josie helped guide us through the whole thing to make sure we had a smooth closing date.

Thank you, Josie!

I can’t imagine a better broker than Josie. Working with her was a breeze. She kept me in the loop about everything, had proficient and reasonable contractors lined up, was very responsive, and above all I felt she genuinely had my interests at heart and wanted the process to be an awesome experience from end to end. I can’t say enough good things about her!

Max Lo Presti

Helped me buy a Single Family home in Seattle, WA

If I could give a 6 star reviews I would.
Josie goes above and beyond to make sure her clients have what they need and want. I had heard so many horror stories about home hunting in Seattle...and Josie made it into a fairy tale. I found my dream home in a couple weeks and she made the offer process as simple and straightforward as it gets. Josie is not only the most supportive and kind agent I know, she is also wildly competent and knows how to get the best deals for her clients. Could not recommend her enough.
