Josie is fantastic. She helped me with buying a house when I moved to Iowa City and has just helped sell it now that we are moving away. She went above and beyond, taking care of a number of things that we were unable to do with the house after moving away. She was the even keel in negotiating our closing. Thanks times a million, Josie!
Josie is the most genuine realtor I’ve worked with! She goes the extra mile to negotiate the best for her clients! She is extremely responsive, professional, and KNOWLEDGABLE! She gave me contact information for the local electric, water and gas companies, as well as her top recommendations for various repair specialties. I am a first time home buyer and Josie was so patient with me and walked me through each step of the way! I am so happy to have connected with her! I highly recommend!!!
Josie was excellent through the entire process of selling our home. We had several setback (none of them her fault) and she was there for us at each stage helping us sort through options and work towards the best possible outcome. She worked really hard to sell out home and we're so glad we had her experience and insights from beginning to end.
Josie is AMAZING! This was my fiance and I first time buying and I am very thankful to have had Josie as our realtor on this journey. She was honest and understanding. I could rely on her to show us exactly what we were looking for and to get feedback in a day or less! When there were things I did not understand at all, she explained it in simple terms and that made me more comfort buying with her. She went above and beyond on how I expected this journey to be. Josie has done an outstanding job and I am blessed to have bought the perfect house with her. Thank you Josie! From the future Mrs. Stewart.
Josie did exactly what she said she was going to do!! She was confident in the list price and reassured us along the way. We are very impressed and will certainly recommend her to all of our family and friends! Great job Josie!
Josie is great! Not only is she down to earth and easy to talk to. She does everything in her power to get you what you want.
If you are looking to buy or sell you need to get a hold of Josie.
We loved working with Josie. She was very helpful and hardworking. She was helpful with moving out of state and working around a time difference to get our house sold!
Josie is extremely patient, knowledgeable, prompt and hard working. I simply can’t say enough good things. She helped me thru a difficult process and made everything so much easier, especially since I’m already living in another state, and wasn’t able to be physically present. Choose Josie as your realtor- she is a joy to work with!
My wife and I worked with Josie Ashmore on buying our 1st home in 2013 and then selling it for us in 2019. On both occasions she provided us with EXCELLENT service. When it came time to sell we were on a tight schedule due to relocating for work. She met that deadline and made it happen for us! I would highly recommend using Josie for any of your real estate needs!
Absolutely the best. Josie is so knowledgeable and only has the best intentions for her clients. We had some bumps, and we are so thankful we had Josie, she was quick ,assertive, and was able to get the closing done efficiently. She has so many great contacts in her pocket and followers. Absolutely the best choice for a realtor.
Josie is the best to work with if you are looking for the best agent to sell your home trust me there is no one better than Josie. In my case of selling my home there was a lot of curve balls at the last min. Any other realtor would of folded and threw there hands up not Josie she got in there and got everything done and went way above the call of duty to help us sell our home. When we are looking to buy our next home we will be going with Josie she has our business for life
THE Nicest person you will ever meet. Go getter. Dedicated. Always has your best interest in mind. She is the best person for the job! If you have not already worked with her, start now!
Josie is by far the a tier 1 top notch realtor . She goes above and beyond to match her clients to there perfect home . She never pressures someone to take a house cause it's just a good deal. She strives to find the perfect match and then gets it locked down for them . The whole experience was handled smoothly thanks to her.
Josie helped us find and purchase our first house, and those words really don't do it justice. When we first were asking to view houses, she took careful note of the sorts of things we were looking for in a house and researched more locations that we might have liked - places we hadn't noticed or had mistakenly overlooked.
With Josie, we basically found our dream house! When we thought someone else was going to beat us to it, she rustled up another house that was also a great deal (especially since we were picky buyers). When negotiations had to be made, she was swift and effective in convincing the sellers of what problems they needed to address about the house before we would purchase it.
Always a phone call away, Josie helped us find a home that I doubt we'll ever be leaving - but if we do, I'll be giving her a call!
Josie was very helpful during my first home buying experience. She was very knowledgeable about the homes we walked through and was always completely honest about each home, such as if there was something wrong with it, etc. I loved that she never tried to be "pushy" like most real estate agents are. I would 100% recommend having Josie help you with any of your real estate needs.
We were first time home buyers, and Josie made everything straightforward and easy to understand. She was available to show houses even with our odd schedules, and we could always text her if we had questions! We ended up in a tricky situation with the home we ended up buying, which resulted in back and forth with the seller that lasted neerly a whole day, and Josie was there to fight for us every step of the wag! It's nice to see someone who genuinely cares about and enjoys what they do. If the time ever comes where we end up selling out house, I know who we will call! Thanks for helping us get our dream home!
I was looking to purchase my first home and was referred to Josie Ashmore, she understood I didn’t know much about the process so she always explained in detail what step was next and was able to answer all questions I had, it was a pleasure working with Josie and would 100% recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home
Josie is an excellent realtor. She is knowledgable, personable, responsive in all communications and a consummate
The market analysis was spot on. She sold my house in one day at above listing price. I was highly pleased with every aspect of the experience.
She helped us sell our home acting as the buyer's agent. Very easy to work with and very helpful. She was in constant contact and kept everyone posted on the happenings and also suggested escrow companies she knows and has worked with.
The selling experience Josie provided me was exactly the standard that every real estate personnel should strive for. The amount of information provided was both extremely helpful and easy to understand and any selling anxiety I may have had was immediately calmed by Josie’s professionalism, helpfulness, and overall caring demeanor. If you're not using Josie Ashmore for your realtor needs; you're not using the right realtor.
I've always been told not to do business with family, however, with Josie as your realtor it's impossible to not do business with family because she makes you feel like family. No, we're not related, but Josie made us feel like one of her own relatives. Buying a house can be life changing. Life changing decisions can be scary. No matter what time of day or not it was, if I had questions - she had answers. A quick email and she was there for us. Josie helped us navigate, what could have been a stressful process, with ease and confidence. She made recommendations during the negotiating process but left every decision up to us ultimately. I liked knowing that she had guidance for us but never told us what we could and couldn't do. She flexed her schedule to meet ours and through it all, kept us sane. I would highly recommend Josie to anyone who is buying or selling. She has years of experience but also has a personal touch that money can't buy.
Josie is amazing! We cannot say enough postitive things about her and how much she helped us find our perfect first home. She is incredibly knowledgeable, hard-working and always willing to help. She always answered our questions promptly and never hesitated to offer her assistance. We thought this process would be very stressful and confusing, and she helped make it an enjoyable, fun and memorable experience. We are so grateful for her help and whenever we are ready to buy or sell again, we will choose her, hands-down!
Josie was an absolutely wonderful realtor to work with. We did our entire home hunting from Tennessee with her expertise and perseverance we were able to purchase the perfect fit all via email, internet and Josie's willingness to show us homes via duo. She handled all the inspections we requested and jumped over hurdles to get them all accomplished in the timeframe required. She is a great communicator and always kept us in the loop and answered our questions. We met her in person at our walk through prior to closing. We are so grateful for all her work.
Josie was incredible to work with throughout the process of purchase of our new home! She was very helpful in explaining the entire process being my fiancé and I have never bought a home before. She was also very patient and very willing to take us to view several homes and very open to working with our schedules. At no point was she ever pushy or pressuring us to make a purchase or anything and she is very personable and friendly. We were very fortunate to work with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Josie has helped us sell large collections of recreational land, more than once, as well as investment properties. She easily handles everything from very large transactions to the smallest with the same care. We are very pleased with her honesty and professional representation. Great job!
Josie made the process of selling our home so easy and was always there to answer any questions. She had the knowledge to price it right so it sold fast and we got a great price!
Have used josie to buy 2 houses and sell one. Wonderfull to work with and went well out out of her way to make sure we were getting into something we would love.
Would recomend highly and if ever the need arises will use her and her knowledge again
The housing market in our price range and age, was not wonderful when we had our house on the market. When we were not having any luck with a previous agent so a friend and co-worker recommended Josie. It was the best decision we ever made! She stepped in, changed things up, and got action on our house. We were presented with a non-conventional option of "renting" to the prospective buyer until he was in a position to buy the home. It took over 18 months to close and during that entire time she was always looking out for our best interest and stayed very engaged and involved. We are so very grateful to Josie for her expertise, knowledge, patience and understanding during this entire, lengthy process! We cannot speak highly enough about Josie Ashmore!
My house sold and I gained a friend! Win win for me! She helped by making the stressful times tolerable. She stays calm and is a great problem solver. She went to bat for me to get the best price possible for my home. She always stayed positive!
Josie has been amazing through this whole process, willing to step up and help us figure out a solution whenever our buyer threw something new our way. I always felt confident Josie would be able to handle anything. She never treated us like ‘small peanuts’ even though our house wasn’t super pricey. I used her both to buy and sell my house, and she was fantastic both times. I would recommend her to anyone.
Josie was the best choice from the first meeting through to closing--an excellent communicator, smart and savvy--Josie went above & beyond to help us prepare the property for sale and get the word out! Great followup and responsiveness and, when the right folks came along, we were well-covered through negotiations and sale of the property . Josie truly is a top-notch person and a great realtor!!!
Josie was very helpful. She was the selling agent when I purchased the house and was very helpful so I called upon her again when I went to sell my house. She was able to get it sold fairly quickly. She was always willing able to answer when I had questions. Would highly recommend her.
Very helpful, worked with us to get a good price and kept us informed alone the way also was always there to answer all questions. Highly recommend her.
Josie a realtor with many years of experience which was obvious when working with her. She had great knowledge of the local market and knew the home buying process very well. She was friendly and easy to communicate with. She made herself available and really made an effort to make the process as smooth and fun as possible.
Josie is the queen of all realtors. I was quite sure of this when we used her this past spring, but having just watched a friend in another city sell their home by a less-than-perfect realtor, I have come to realize just how much Josie is above and beyond. She was completely accessible. She was utterly knowledgeable about everything. She took our worries and concerns and gave us the data we needed to make actually informed choices.
When selling our home, we took her advice (she told us to list at a higher price than literally anyone else we asked - of course we took her advice!!) and we had showing after showing. She kept saying things like "i'll work a little harder, I don't think we're getting enough showings!" and I'm still not exactly sure what the wizardry implied there is, but I can tell you we had a showing nearly every day - and two on some days! - until we sold it. We ended up selling at a higher price than other realtors had suggested we list.
Buying our new home, again she was great. My husband and I wanted to sell first, then buy - and we were okay if we had to live in alternative housing to make that happen. But Josie absolutely went to bat for us, and we closed on both our sale and our buy within hours of each other - and she magically negotiated for us to move in before we'd even bought the new house.
There honestly isn't praise strong enough for the wonderful experience we had.
Josie was more than amazing! She was professional and prepared. She came to our first meeting with a page full of ideas/things she would do to help us sell our home. She was TERRIFIC! She gave honest feedback and helpful suggestions without applying any pressure. She was very knowledgeable about the market and sold our home quickly. She was always available and always made us feel as though we were her top priority. She earned our complete trust through her hard work. She didn't leave any lose ends and was always looking out for us - keeping our best interests in mind. I would completely recommend Josie when buying or selling a home.
Can't say enough about how great Josie was. This was our first time buying a home and it wasn't exactly smooth, but she was great and really went to bat for us throughout the whole thing.
My only regret is that we won't get to tour any more houses with her now!
Josie was very patient with all of my questions and did everything she said she would. She is great, and so are her assistants. She sold my home in less than two weeks and was supportive during the listing process, the selling process and the closing process. Everything felt at ease.
Josie was very helpful in helping me buy my home. I'm a first time homeowner so she walked me through the process and helped me with everything so I could understand it. She was always available and answered all my emails almost immediately.
Josie is very driven. She was able to get our house sold in under two months. She handled everything, all we had to do was keep the house ready for showing. Our buyers had requested a radon mitigation system before closing. Josie used her network of contacts to get the best priced bid, I was not able to be around when the contractor came to install, she handled everything like it was her own home. I would highly recommend Josie to anyone else looking to sell their home. She made a situation that could have been really stressful on my wife and me, into something that was worry free.
Josie always had our best interests at heart. She was responsive to any of our questions and was masterful at helping us sell in a difficult market. She is very honest and straight-forward. The amount of work she did to help us sell our home was unlike any we had seen from any other realtor.
Josie did an outstanding job of helping us find our forever home. She did a great job of being available for showings when we were available. Once we found the home we wanted to make an offer on, she was very quick with getting the paperwork to us as well as any revisions that were needed. Josie was a a tough negotiator and worked very hard to get us the best deal as well as looking after our best interest in the deal. We highly recommend Josie Ashmore if you are looking for a realtor!
We initially met Josie when we purchased our current home. We were so impressed with her honesty and prompt responses to all our questions that we decided to use her to sell the home we moved from. Although the sale required more time than we initially thought, Josie was relentless in finding the right Buyer and kept the process moving to a timely closing. She gave us nearly daily updates from listing to closing. I will definately use Josie in the future and would highly recommend her services to friends & family.
As a real estate investor, I have dealt with dozens and dozens of realtors. I have NEVER found a realtor that I could trust, count on or show me they had the knowledge to help me get the best deal possible, until I me Josie.
While I had plenty of real estate experience, I was short on time and my wife of only 8 months wanted a realtors assistance to help speed up the home buying process so we could buy our home and move in before our first baby arrived.
Josie listened to what we wanted, understood our budget and within 2 weeks we had an accepted offer! The negotiations went smoothly and our closing date was scheduled.
For most realtors, that's where their job ends. They just sit back, make sure the paperwork get signed and collect their check. Not Josie! She helped us through the process by recommending various options that I didn't even know about. She even provided some helpful hints on selling our condo that we had been trying to sell on our own for months. Not once was she pushy and try to get us to sign our condo up with her.
Closing day is where Josie truly shined! The night before closing, after we completed our final walk through of the home with Josie, my wife's water broke and we headed to the hospital. Josie took the reins! She contacted the banker, the other realtor, and even the hospital. Josie planned it all out so we could quickly close on our home as scheduled. We actually have pictures of my wife signing our closing papers from the hospital bed!
It doesn't even end there. Josie didn't want us to bring our baby boy home to a dirty house, so she hired a cleaning crew (at her own expense) to come in and clean the HUGE mess the previous owners left behind. She even helped us connect with the right people to fix the damage the previous home owner caused when they moved out.
To say Josie and her team go above and beyond, is an understatement! We had a baby, closed on a house and moved into our new home all in one weekend. While it was the most expensive day of my life, I'm truly grateful we had Josie on our side. I don't think we could have done it with out her. The wonderful Scentsy Josie gave us, we smell every day. Along with the cute stuffed elephant she bought for baby Gavin remind me that we will certainly be listing our home with Josie when we are ready to sell.
Josie was so amazing. We were first time home buyers and knew very little about the process. Josie Ashmore walked us through step by step. I was talking to a woman I work with and I was telling her all the little things Josie did to help us. She was amazed! She has bought two homes and some of the things Josie did for us she had never even heard of.
Very informative of the local market. Very responsive to inquiries and questions from buyers. Respectful and honest regarding homes as related to buyer expectations, property history, and future potential (i.e. trustworthy). Also skilled and tactful in the negotiation process. Highly recommend.
Josie and her team did a great job successfully selling my mother's house when no one else could.
It is a difficult time to move a parent out of the home. Yet Jessie handled the complete transaction, during January weather, in a great fashion.
From the moment she took over the listing, at a higher price, she staged the home and made sure all details were covered, which was especially comforting since I was in another city for the transaction.
She is very prompt and is very resourceful with city regulations when it comes to investment properties. She has a professional team that can provide you with answers and setup appointments
Josie is a very friendly, honest, and hard working realtor who's goal is to make every client happy with each situation when it comes to buying or selling a home. I highly recommend her for a successful real estate transaction.
I had a wonderful experience searching for my home with Josie. She did a great job of listening to what I was looking for and finding properties that closely matched my wish list. I never felt pressured to make a purchase, and yet Josie was always willing to provide advice or help when needed. Throughout the buying process, she worked to get me the best value possible, as well as find a great home. She's so easy to get ahold of and prompt to respond - e-mail, phone, text... you name it! I am so glad that I found her, and recommend her to anyone in the Cedar Rapids area looking to buy or sell their home.
