"Joshua was a breath of fresh air to work with and helped me find my dream home in the Santa Barbara area. He was attentive, professional, incredibly knowledgeable and NOT pushy. I was working with him long distance and he set up virtual showings as needed. In a competitive market and on a home with multiple offers, he helped me to get my offer accepted without having to overbid and break my budget. Highly recommend working with Joshua Ramirez."
