Testimonials

Thanks for all your help with the house buying. I know it can be difficult mixing business and friendships, but I knew you’d do an outstanding job. Since I’ve known you for so long, it really took a stress off of me because I never had to worry that you wouldn’t have our best interest in mind, and I know I can trust you 100%. So thank you!

I don’t think I’d even have a house (ever) without you. You made me feel comfortable buying a place and had my back the whole way! I am so thankful I had you for a Realtor and so very happy for your success. You deserve it.

I bought a house about a month ago with the help of Josh Center …, and really couldn’t have been much happier with the experience. … Josh was able to understand what I was looking for and pull together some good ideas after some discussion. The process from offer to close was great; I didn’t think it could be better than the first time I bought a house, but it was!

…He [Josh] went above and beyond to find us the perfect apartment. I was so incredibly impressed with his knowledge of the Austin neighborhoods, buildings and the functionality of the space that would best fit our needs. I could not believe all the research he did and all of the options he had for us to choose from that were in our price range. But the most impressive of all his attributes, he LISTENED…to everything! He was always a step ahead as my partner and I weighed the pros and cons of each space.  I have never had such a stress-free experience when looking for a place to rent until I met Josh…

An extremely happy customer,

…He [Josh] not only showed us awesome condos and apartments but also described each neighborhood’s strengths and weaknesses in length.  I’ve never worked with a finer agent.  We will be returning in September to look at properties to buy and hope to work with Josh again.

Jim,

Josh helped me Thursday find a place to live. I am in sales and understand the importance of customer service. When I called Josh was pleasant and showed genuine care in helping me find a place.

Coming from out of town (MA girl) I knew nothing about Austin. He really listened to my needs and asked appropriate questions to guide me. He spent more time on the phone with me than any other realtor.

In addition he has a vast knowledge of the area and was willing to share. Even after I had found a place.

I just wanted to let you know what a awesome job Josh  Center did helping me find my perfect home! Here is what I said about him.

Hey Josh, your awesome!! It was a pleasure hanging out with you all day, looking for the perfect place for my new home. I’m so excited about the place I choose and can’t wait to hear if the approval process went through.

Thank you so much for all your hard work today. Just the fact that you spent so much time telling me about Austin and showing me all the cool places to go shop and eat really says alot about what kind of person you are and how you enjoy finding the perfect place for your clients. YOU ROCK!!

You went totally out of your way ensuring I saw all the different options that were available downtown before you took me up beautiful HWY 360, where I finally find my new home, which I just love!! If anyone ever needs a place to live in Austin Josh’s name is the only name I will give out.

Thank you,

Genevieve Turner

Josh is that terrific and rare combination of professional and personable, and even more rare – he really listens.  He immediately put me at ease with a very laid-back energy, but he was also prepped and ready to rock with a list of neighborhoods and properties that might fit my requirements.  Nothing about the day felt unprepared, he was extremely organized and had obviously put in a lot of legwork prior to our meeting.  And then, he was also open if a spontaneous idea occurred to him during the course of our conversations.

 Another thing I really appreciated was Josh’s in depth knowledge of each neighborhood and the greater Austin community; not only the current events, but a historical snapshot as well.  Instead of just driving straight to each property to view it, he took the time to drive me around the ‘hood a bit, showing me various features of the area that were in line with what I had described to him in our initial conversations about what I wanted.  For someone totally new to the area, this was such a gift and incredibly helpful.

His earnest desire to help me find a good fit was evident in all of his attention to details, for instance: because he knew that I am a boxer, he called me after we had said goodbye to let me know about a boxing gym in a neighborhood that I had liked.  He spent his whole day viewing properties with me, which allowed me to take the time I needed to weigh the options.  I never felt that he was trying to rush me through, or influence my decision-making, which was so crucial for me, since I am person who really needs to have a living space that feels like home, and that is sometimes a difficult thing to find.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!
