Gary and Lynelle Johnson

My wife and I had a difficult transition with my 95 year old cousin who asked me to handle her matters and to find a senior living resident for her to transition as she was no longer able to manage her home and other financial complexities. She owned a four bedroom home she purchased in 1980. She never married, traveled the world, and acquired expensive personal items over the decades. Unfortunately, she became a hoarder and the home was rat infested, so we acted quickly to move her to a safe place. She was reluctant to sell her house and as such she was depleting her cash assets rapidly. She had an inflated idea of the value of the house based on an adjacent property which sold for more than 1 million dollars. We had met Joshua through our daughter, and she suggested that we contact him for advice. We arranged a meeting and felt very comfortable moving forward on this matter. He was thorough and sensitive to the specific issues we were facing. Joshua handled the complexities quickly and with compassion. What was remarkable throughout our business relationship he completely arranged the specific needs of the residence due to the damage caused by neglect and the rats.. This was a major issue involving emptying the house, hauling damaged items away, and actual structural issues. His response to our needs was extremely important as we live four hours away from my cousin’s house. He had associates to address every issue. It’s obvious that he is a full service leader. He suggested options regarding the sale of the house and was very diligent in keeping us advised of the needs to get the maximum value for my cousin. He was so prepared when he met my cousin her questions regarding the house’s value were clearly addressed. He presented the house to the potential buyers and received 3 immediate offers, all above the asking price. His professional and personal acumen carried over to her immediate acceptance of the best offer. Without any reservation, we would recommend Joshua to anyone who needs advice on this important decision, whether buying or selling property. What a great experience!!!
