I thoroughly enjoy real estate. This is my life and my passion. Throughout the years I have purchased several homes for my family in several different states. During the process of fixing them up and reselling them for a profit, I've realized how important it is to have a Realtor you can trust and who keeps you informed. I decided to become a real estate agent originally for my own personal investment reasons but fell in love with helping others. With the lessons that I have learned, I realize that honesty and communication are extremely important. I understand how complicated buying and selling a home can be. Passion and tenacity go hand in hand. Listing the house is the easy part, it takes skill to sell it. Aggressively listing it online and pricing correctly are key points right now in this market. Using online advertising to sell your home has never been more crucial than it is today. With cell phones and tablets in most consumers' hands all the time, advertising has shifted it's focus. Last but not least, I WORK FOR YOU. Honesty and Integrity are something I hold in high regard. Enjoy your home buying/selling experience. This can be fun!!

Josh helped us with a recent home purchase. I just cannot recommend him highly enough. Josh is a rare find in a person, no less a realtor. He is honest, he goes above and beyond, he always has a great attitude and is always available and responsive. He gave us some critical, priceless advice and I really felt that Josh always had our best interest at heart. Zillow - 09/25/2014 - cbrideson Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Pensacola, FL.
Josh was the greatest! We were buying a foreclosure and without his knowledge in all aspects of the purchase, it would not have happened. The bank owned property required lots of extra work and Josh, along with his wonderful assistant, made sure everything was taken care of until the end. I am confident that if we had any other agent, the deal would have fallen through at several points in the process. I would absolutely recommend Josh to anyone in any real estate venture! Zillow - 10/21/2015 - user4024563 Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $100K in Gulf Breeze, FL.
Josh Shimp is without a doubt the best realtor I have ever had. I have purchased numerous houses in my sixty years of living and by far his knowledge of locality, background in house construction, and personal availability whenever I needed him, places him at the top of his profession. I truthfully couldn't have found a better man of integrity than Josh Shimp. 08/11/2014 - Zillow: user3680700 Bought a home in 2014 in Gonzalez, Cantonment, FL 32533.
Very professional and very helpful. Would/will use him in the future. He knew what to look for in the homes we visited, arrived on time, and was very patient with us. We are first time homeowners and he was very helpful and answered every question we had. Zillow - 06/09/2015 - user602805190 Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Pensacola, FL.
very fine job overall. unimpressed w/local finance agent. but the problem was resolved. will recommend josh and use in the future. quick to find the home that fit our needs set up all inspections and did a fine job in the follow up. quick to return calls in that this was a long distant transaction. on a scale of 1-10 josh gets a 9. I never give 10 in that we all have room for improvement. a big thanks josh. still looking for saint tickets. Zillow - 07/20/2015 - dlm31858 Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Pensacola, FL.
Closed on a Pensacola Beach condo from out of town (DC), Josh was on top of everything, very helpful in closing the loop on things we were unable to do due to distance. Josh worked with us and kept us apprised of developments when our lender fell behind on timeline for closing, ultimately took care of the Pensacola end when we had to return to DC, enabling a long-distance closing with no hitches. Five-star recommendation! Zillow - 09/02/2015 - gulfghost Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $500K in Pensacola Beach, FL.
Joshua and the ERA team were a great help to us as we were not familiar with the area and we gave them what we believed to be our needs,preference and desires. They went to work and found for us a house that met our criteria Joshua is excellent at what he does, quick to respond flexible in schedule for the showing. I would highly recommend Joshua! Zillow - 10/26/2015 - olivier broc Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Pensacola, FL.
Josh Shimp was recommended to me by someone who was knowledgeable of his real estate background, along with his good character. Josh was made aware of the type of house we wanted and he didn't waste our time showing us homes that were not what we wanted and out of our price range. Josh is very honest and will point out potential problems with a home in order to assist the client in making a good decision. He was the most deligent real estate agent I have ever used. There was never a problem that he didn't solve or find the resources to solve it. I would, without reservation, recommend Josh to anyone, and I plan to use Josh for every real estate purchase in the future Zillow - 09/10/2014 - jamiejrussell Bought a home in 2014 in Goulding, Pensacola, FL 32501.
Josh just helped us purchase a new home in Pensacola. We couldn't be more pleased! He readily responded to our texts and calls and was always available to visit multiple homes. Josh has a background in contracting and was able to give us valuable insight regarding repairs and remodeling. He took the time to listen, answer our questions, and walk us through the home buying process. He is polite, considerate, and eager to help his clients in any way he can. Zillow - 09/14/2014 - allisonbroc Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Pensacola, FL.
If you are looking for great personal attention from an agent that will treat you as a friend not another sale..Josh is the one for you! He worked tirelessly for us. He actually listened to what we said, heard us then found what we wanted! I couldn't have asked for a better agent. Thanks Josh Shimp for taking such great care of us despite our being so picky and demanding. Great job! Zillow - 01/16/2015 - gburtonlee Showed home in 2015 in Cantonment, FL.
first time buying a house...surfing on Zillow and Josh's name pop up. before working with Josh I had worked with several agents, Josh is the best among them. Very professional and efficient. ultra fast response and always stand with the buyer's side. you will feel comfortable and confident about the house deal once Josh pull out his knowledge on real estate. Josh is always straight-forward and honest about the progress all the time. even after closing he still spend time to look after us!! Highly recommended! Zillow - 09/10/2015 - jeffwubze2001 Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Pensacola, FL.
We were looking for our first house to buy and call our own, we were using someone else before Josh. The people were rude and had no knowledge about houses or prices in the area, it was taking to long and we had a short window before our lease was up and I thank god I clicked on Josh's link. It took us one day to find and sign our papers for our house. Josh and his wife kept us informed about everything that was going on with the process, from inspections down to the owners signing over the papers. We moved into our new home with in two weeks after seeing it. If fast, friendly service is what you are looking for my husband and myself highly recommend Josh Shimp. Zillow - 11/01/2015 - alishagrubbs Bought a Miscellaneous home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Pensacola, FL.
My name is John Goundas and Josh is an amazing realtor and an all around stand up guy. He has been honest and very dependable during my purchasing experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone purchasing a home. Zillow - 06/04/2015 - zuser20140416160906844 Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Pensacola, FL.
Josh and his team were excellent. They went above and beyond what was needed. He always responded quickly to my questions and I did not ever have to wonder if things were taken care of... Because I knew they were!!! I highly recommend Josh Shimp!! Zillow - 07/15/2015 - user6227070 Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $75K in Pensacola, FL.
Josh is amazing, will use him going forward for all my real estate needs! He brought his A game, I sold a home in a different state, my buying experience was much better. Zillow - 08/09/2015 - caymanbc Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $100K in Pensacola, FL.
Josh is an awesome realtor. He is very knowledgeable on what to look for on a home you are buying and truly cares about his clients. I was a first time home buyer and he was very patients when answering any questions or concerns I had. One of the first questions he will ask you is "What do you see your dream home having?'' You tell him the specifics you want and the price you would like to say in and thats what he does. He is always very quick to respond to you and keeps you updated on the progress with your home. The one thing that was awesome for me, (because I was a 1st time home buyer and had no idea what I needed to do) he was able to give you a person to call on everything needed for the home. Loan Officer, inspectors, and even insurance agent! If you are looking for a realtor that will take care of you and make sure you are getting the best house for you, call Josh! You won't be disappointed! Zillow - 10/21/2015 - patrioticpixie Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $100K in Pensacola, FL.
My Wife and I looked for a new home for a very long time and may be remembered as a challenging client to Josh. We ended up choosing a home to purchase that was a nightmarish experience for my Wife, I, and Josh. Our seller was nearly impossible to buy from, literally. Josh consistently displayed knowledge, professionalism, and kept everything as smooth as anyone could. He was patient, persistent, understanding, and extremely helpful in the process. His advise has saved us considerably and eventually was instrumental in my Wife and I getting a house that we love. Without Josh's guidance it could have been so much worse and or resulted in us not being able to buy our home. Zillow - 11/04/2015 - stambaughr Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Pensacola, FL.
Recently Josh helped me buy a little fixer-upper to use as a winter home. Unlike several other realtors, Josh didn't turn up his nose at the transaction just because it was small. He gave it his best, including holding my hand through the ups and downs of helping a buyer (me) who was out of state for much of the process. There are many excellent professionals who are competent, knowledgeable, respectful, etc. Josh has all of that, plus one outstanding characteristic you don't find every day in ANY walk of life: he pays close attention to what the other person is saying. He LISTENS. He doesn't waste your time pushing something you don't want. He wants his clients to be really satisfied with their purchase. I am delighted with my little house, and very glad I had Josh to help me get it. If I ever buy another, he will be my realtor, there's no question. I recommend him with no reservations. If there were more than 5 stars, I'd give them to him. Zillow - 11/14/2014 - MarjorieB Photos Bought a home in 2014 in Brent, Pensacola, FL 32505.
Excellent customer service and professionalism in all aspects of the transactions involved in the sale of our house. He got a contract on our house in the first month he put it on the market. Others excuse their lack of sales due to the current market status. Josh proved them wrong! Cuddos for Josh! Zillow - 12/26/2014 - mealonso Sold a home in 2014 in Ensley, Pensacola, FL 32534.
