MitchFR Single Family Mid City

I have bought and sold several properties (condominium, several homes) using Josie's expertise in the 18 years that I've known her. I also have extensive experience using other realtors prior to meeting Josie and in other cities so I'm in a good position to compare. Josie is passionate about her work and her wealth of experience will benefit any buyer or seller from first-timers to seasoned real estate traders. She has worked in many aspects of the business including managing one of the busiest broker offices in Los Angeles.

Most importantly, Josie is down-to-earth and very honest. For buyers, she gets to know what her clients value and works hard to make sure they find a property that they will be happy with. If she feels there are reasons a property may not be right for you, she will tell you. Once you've chosen a property, she expertly guides you through the negotiating process to obtain the best possible price. Finally, unlike many realtors I've known, she handles the escrow period with finesse and integrity. For many realtors, their only interest at that point is to smooth over any issues and close the sale. Josie truly works for her clients, will strongly advocate for you and, if necessary, guide you in deciding to walk away from a transaction.

For sellers, her years of experience and connections in the Los Angeles Real Estate community help you to properly price your property, market it widely and get you a buyer. Once again, in the escrow process, you realize that you truly have an advocate when her actions are on your behalf and not just in the interest of closing the sale quickly in order to collect her commission.

In summary, I've recommended Josie to many friends and colleagues over the years and they have all been impressed by her skills, knowledge and passion for real estate. I would certainly utilize Josie for any future real estate transactions in the Los Angeles area.

mmenery- Highly Recommend

Josie is a wonderful person and great real estate agent. After having our first child, my wife and I needed to find a bigger place than our two bedroom apartment. We found Josie via a recommendation from a friend. She took the time to get to know us and our preferences/needs and helped suggest areas to explore that would fit our criteria and offer a reasonable commute. She was patient and always offered points of consideration with each property we viewed, careful to allow us to develop our own opinion. Josie is very knowledgeable about the local marketplace and the schools and her insight was invaluable during the process. I always felt that Josie had our best interest in mind and she was the consummate professional and wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend Josie

Sold home

We found Josie to be excellent working while simultaneously "educating " our family. The vast age differences and levels of technological skills, as well as personalities had the potential of creating great stress and frustrations. Josie's sense of humor, her ability to clearly explain the real estate legalities (jargon) and terminology...plus her organizational skills ended-up having the sale of my Mother's home (which began just a few days after her death) a positive and meaningful experience.

We feel her middle name should be "patience.'

A number of the potential buyers seemed to fail to read (and/or understand) what was written in the contractual papers. Josie's diplomacy and guidance helped to minimize long-term interactions, that could have lead, nowhere. And there were three of those situations before the 4th and final escrow.

She kept her composure, especially with some of the manipulative perspective buyers.......always maintaining a professional attitude/manner.

Josie ALWAYS kept her word, was punctual and spent time explaining relevant concerns. We all liked and trusted her. She clearly knew the real estate business and impressed us all.

We would recommend her with a sense of giving someone the "gift" of a successful joint /co-operative venture.

Josie Benjamin is everything you would ever want in a real estate agent. She has been in the industry a long time and knows how everything works from top to bottom. We were first-time buyers who were very uncertain about what we wanted and what was a good investment, and we didn't understand anything about the process -- Josie helped us every step of the way. She was incredibly patient with our countless questions, phone calls, and emails. Josie is extremely responsive and willing to rearrange her schedule to make a last-minute meeting. She truly went above and beyond, helping us with questions that go beyond what a real estate agent typically handles. Above all, Josie does not beat around the bush -- she tells it like it is and never pressured us once. She was quick to tell us when she didn't think something was good for us, rather than trying to push a sale. We worked with her for over a year, and would happily recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

JB Team Bought SIngle Famiyl Home

When my husband and I moved to LA, we decided we were ready to buy a house. We weren't as familiar with a lot of the areas here, so we were looking for a realtor who really knew the city. Our friends had just bought a beautiful house in Studio City for a steal, and highly recommended we use Josie. She was AMAZING! First of all, she knew exactly what areas we should look at, taking into consideration where my husband works, what we were looking for, and the fact that we wanted to start a family. She drove us around to a few of the neighborhoods, just to get a sense for what we liked, and then she started sending us listings. It was so much easier having her narrow the choices down for us. We had seen so many fixers and tiny houses in our price range, I was starting to get discouraged. She was really positive though, assuring us that we would find the best house. She was also really honest about what we could afford and which houses just weren't worth the money. There was one house we'd seen online that I was sort of unsure about, but she kept telling us to check it out. Well, she was so right about this house. It had been well-maintained by a loving family for 30 years so it was charming and warm and felt like the perfect home to start a family. And the price was right, which seemed like a miracle at the time! So we put in an offer and although we probably weren't the ideal buyers, Josie got us our dream house! She had a good relationship with the realtor selling the house and a great reputation among other realtors, and she convinced them we would be the perfect people to buy their home. We've been in our house for about five years, and now have two kids and a dog. We're in a great school district and the value of our house has increased by about 30%. She really knows what she's talking about. More important, it really felt like she cared about us and wanted to give us a great start. I highly recommend her, with five stars and straight A's and glowing reviews. You couldn't find a more knowledgeable, more caring realtor.
