Funny story:
One of my most memorable moments in real estate is when I was in a vacant house with my (very tall) client and he asked me if it was normal for there to be a voice recorder on top of the refrigerator recording or conversation, I guess the sellers really wanted to know what we thought of the house!

Funny story:
I was showing houses on a beautiful summer day. As I was turning the key to let the buyers into the house, I glanced to my right and saw the biggest, ugliest snake curled up in the landscaping. Snakes of any kind are my number one fear, so I couldn’t stifle my blood curdling scream, which probably seemed a little out of character to my clients. We made it inside, but there was no way I was going to be able to leave, if it meant passing by that snake. After some coaxing from the buyers, we decided that I would sneak out the back door and make a run for it! They went out the front door and locked up for me. As it turns out, they bought the house and years later we still laugh about the incident.

Josh is married with two kids – Caleb (3) and Camryn (1), and a labradoodle named Gucci. For the past 9 years, he has lived in Aurora Shores. Josh played college baseball at North Carolina Greensboro, Lakeland, and Mercyhurst. He graduated from Mercyhurst University.

Funny story:
I was showing about 12 homes one day for an out of town buyer. I walked up to the condo door and heard a funny noise as I was unlocking it. It was the dead of winter with feet of snow on the ground. As I walked in I got misted with water from bursting pipes. It was a monsoon of water in the kitchen, and bathrooms. Keep your heat on people especially if you don't live there.

Funny story:
I was entering a bank-owned home with my clients and copper thieves were running out the back door. They had knocked off the water meter & the basement was rapidly filling up with water! My clients passed on that home.
