Couldn’t be Happier
Josh was able to get us the absolute best house that we saw! We had been with different agents but once with him everything fell into place. His guidance on financing and how to structure our offer in Seattle's crazy market was priceless. He knows all of Seattle, has great style, knows when to give a firm opinion and when to back off and help guide; and he always is able to keep a calm demeanor even under stressful circumstances. We couldn't be happier in our new home and with the help that Josh Paulus gave us to make it happen!

He was the right guy
After first interviewing Josh, I knew he was the right guy to list our Seattle home. He was proactive, responsive, communicative, and the hardest working real estate agent I could ever hope to work with. Josh is bright and organized and pays great attention to details. He is there every step of the way and explains everything clearly. We will definitely use him on an upcoming transaction.

My wife and I recently relocated from Colorado to Washington State for work. We didn’t know the area having never visited this part of the country before. Feeling apprehensive about where we would like to settle down, we put out some feelers early in the process and were lucky enough to get a bite from Josh Prior to our move, Josh first met with us via a Zoom call, and we spent a good while discussing our desired locations and must haves. He then took all those notes and compiled an accurate list of properties that best matched our criteria. Even though there was no pressure from Josh to put in an offer and he’d made it clear that this first time out would just be to get a better idea of what we could get for our money in the different cities around Seattle, we really liked the condo and decided to put in an offer. Josh immediately got to work on pulling comps and speaking with the listing agent. He gave us timely updates and made sure we were never out of the loop throughout the process. He checked in regularly asking if we had any concerns along the way. We ended up getting a great deal on the place and even got quite a bit of seller concessions which I’m told in this market is not all that common. Josh was a consummate professional throughout the entire process, and it was an absolute joy to work with the guy! He always went above and beyond and made sure we were comfortable and well informed every step of the way! Josh has helped to make our first major purchase in Washington a pleasant one and we will be hitting him up again when we are ready to move into a bigger space and rent out the current one, we are in now. All the best!!!

As a first-time home buyer in a hot market I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. Josh set us up with a great lender and was patient and willing to explain things every step of the way. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy!

Incredibly Helpful, Flexible and Kind
Josh was incredibly helpful, flexible, and kind. He was willing to completely conform to our schedule including spending the entire weekend looking at places because it was the only weekend we could fly out to Seattle. He was involved in every aspect of the process including getting repairs done on our condo before we even moved in. His knowledge of Seattle was also very helpful, and he is available for questions even after the buying process was complete.
Josh was THE BEST! He handled everything from helping me find my dream home, to recommending an amazing lender, to putting together such a strong offer that I was able to get under contract on the very first house I put an offer on! For all of you who have been looking for months and months and losing out over and over, I can't recommend Josh enough! He was a dream to work with - organized, empathetic, and intelligent - and really made me feel listened to and supported throughout the whole process. I've been giving his name to all of my friends and will definitely use him again in the future!

My husband and I would give Josh SIX stars as a real estate agent. He is simply outstanding - standing out head and shoulders above most realtors we have met in terms of his integrity, thoroughness, responsiveness, availability, and genuine desire to help his clients find their perfect home. Josh will spend his time on your behalf making inquiries and doing research, he will show up for you again and again, he will treat your search for THE house as his personal mandate and will treat you like you are his only client. Josh takes the time getting to know you and what you are looking for! He truly invests in his relationships with his clients, and it shows in the quality of the services he provides. This is someone who deeply cares about his clients. We have met our fair share of flakey, unresponsive, dramatic, wishy-washy realtors, and it is incredibly refreshing to meet someone as professional and deeply committed to his work as Josh. He is truly one of a kind, not only as a real estate agent, but as a human being. We consider ourselves lucky to be his clients! If are looking for an honest, thorough, knowledgeable, caring, simply wonderful realtor and full-service real estate broker, do yourself a big favor - go with Josh.

Josh is an amazing real estate agent. He was all we could have hoped for and more. Knowledgeable, responsive, insightful, helpful, and more. The hardest working real estate agent I have ever worked with. We warned Josh that we were likely to be very difficult and demanding clients in the search for our new home, and he didn't flinch. He took us on and performed beyond our expectations. I have no hesitation in recommending Josh to anyone in need of a top-tier real estate agent. You simply cannot do better.

Incredibly attentive and communicative
My wife and I relocated to Washington in the fall of 2021, looking to rent and hopefully buy in the near future. In looking for a rental I met Josh through contacting a large amount of realtors. Pretty much everyone turned me away, didn't actually listen etc., Rental/Housing market is tough... Josh kept reaching out looking for any way to help. We found a short-term rental, and moved, hoping to reconnect at the beginning of 2022 and get serious about buying. Once we actually entered the market, Josh had built a relationship with us. Every step and movement felt thought out. He knew what we were looking for, our tastes/dislikes. He understood our budget. It was difficult not to fall in love with a property every week. When it came to actually submitting an offer and negotiating, Josh's knowledge of the real estate market was on point. Josh was incredibly attentive and communicative throughout the process, even when the listing agent wasn't so much. Every bit of guidance made sense. Long story long, Josh helped us find and buy our first house in a crazy market. We could not have found a better realtor in the Sea-Tac area. Josh is attentive and knowledgeable. He listens and does his research. His advice is thought out and honest.

Absolute Gem! A++
My partner and I just closed last month on our forever home thanks to invaluable help from Josh Paulus in the house buying process. I had a pretty unique list of wants and needs and he was able to find properties that met if not exceeded all of my expectations, while expertly guiding us through the insane market. After settling in for the past month I adore where we live now and almost couldn't imagine wanting to live anywhere else. It's just that perfect all thanks to Josh and his hard work. Josh wasn't the first agent that we had tried in the house buying process, but he was the last which speaks volumes to his knowledge and expertise in this field. I have zero doubts that he was the reason we were able to finally close on a house. It's evident that he truly cares about his clients, and I seriously can't recommend his real estate services enough. I hope this review helps in getting the word out there about Josh Paulus because he is an absolute gem of an agent! A++

Expertise in negotiation shone through
Josh assisted us greatly in purchasing a home as out of state buyers. First, Josh ensured that we had a great overview of the various Seattle neighborhoods and helped narrow down based on our non-negotiables. Josh was able to visit multiple homes for us and view the homes through our lens to ensure that it would ultimately be a good fit for us. This involved providing a video tour, reading through provided seller documents, and chatting with neighbors. Josh's expertise in negotiation shone when it came to structuring our offer. Each of his recommendations ultimately ended up helping make our offer the winning one.

Couldn’t recommend more highly
This was my first house purchase, and I really didn't have any idea what would be involved in the process. I had a rough idea of what I was looking for and a price range but nothing more than some intuition. Josh spent weeks just showing me houses without any bit of pressure so he could build up a model of what my perfect house would look like. Any question, at any time, was quickly answered. When Josh found the house I eventually closed on I loved it immediately. Josh diligently and quickly handled every part of the process, and still somehow managed to explain everything thoroughly. He helped put together a strong offer and we were able to beat out six others. I couldn't be happier with my choice, and I couldn't recommend him more.
Incredibly Tactical and Responsive
When we were looking to move to Washington, we found Josh via a recommendation to his office. We had a rough timeline for our move halfway across the country and planned a trip to Seattle. Josh was more than happy to take a day around the holidays to show us some homes so we could get a feel for some areas and what we would be able to get in our budget. Josh is incredibly tactical and responsive. He was very honest with us when writing offers, and he stayed on top of the selling agents while staying in close contact with us. We ended up in a home that was outside our initial area and Josh was incredibly flexible and willing to go the literal extra few miles to make sure everything was solid. On top of being very knowledgeable, Josh is friendly and fun to work with. Our experience was all positive and I would highly recommend Josh.
