Chuck and Nannette Carroll
Joshua Simkin England was our agent when we sold our house. Things went so well, we don’t know where to start. We had never met Joshua before he gave us his initial presentation on being our agent. The presentation was so much better than the others we had seen. He was the easy choice. Like all sellers, we wanted the best price. From the first moment Joshua talked us through very specific steps in the process. Since we had lived in our home so long, we needed to come to grips with decluttering, what to fix up and what NOT to waste time on. This last issue saved us much money. Joshua educated us on the current market, how buyers would see our property compared to the competition and how to determine a listing price. He was patient with our ignorance and always ready to supply the right person to help with the many steps in preparation for the sale. Underpinning this whole process, he believed in our home. This may sound silly, but other agents we interviewed did not. Our first open house was on a beautiful spring day with surrounding grasslands at their greenest. 90 folks stopped by. It was a success. From the first published listing to close of escrow was an astonishing fast 33 days! We could not have asked for more. Neither can you. Go with Joshua.
He’s responsive, listens to needs & adds valuable local knowledge”We’ve worked with Joshua to buy and sell our home. He’s responsive, listens to needs & adds valuable local knowledge to pricing, comps & trends. We weren’t in the area while listing our home & he sourced/managed painters, handymen, gardeners, etc, which was a huge relief.
We loved working with Joshua and his team on our hunt to find a home.
We loved working with Joshua and his team on our hunt to find a home. Joshua is kind, straight-forward, organized, attentive and most importantly – knowledgeable about the East Bay market. He worked with us for several months, patiently checking in with us until we found the perfect home. One thing I really appreciated about...
