"We were so pleased Beginning to End with our experience with Realtor Josh Baellow!
He assessed our real estate needs, introduced us to suitable areas during a delightful day's outing, offered potential residences through Internet listings, and was instantly available when we were ready to make an offer. Josh guided us through every step of process, and successfully negotiated on our behalf which culminated in closing 6 weeks later. He expertly conducted every aspect of the business transaction as we were unable to travel to the closing!
Josh's professionalism was exhibited in multiple ways: attention to detail; reassurance in calm, positive ways; and always resourceful and knowledgeable!
He is an asset to your agency!"
"My wife and I were lucky to find Josh Baellow. Coming off of the recent short sale of our house, we knew it would be a challenge to obtain financing for our next home. Josh to the rescue! He coordinated financing and provided top-notch service throughout the entire home buying process.
Josh goes beyond the typical services provided by a Realtor, furnishing soup-to-nuts assistance, from assisting in obtaining financing for those in challenging situations (common these days), to post-closing support. He’s a one-stop agent. Josh coolly handled any issue that inevitably came up during a real estate transaction.
He’s an excellent negotiator and has a deep network of contacts for providers of many real estate services, invaluable assets to potential buyers and sellers. He’s a big-picture Realtor who is adept at developing relationships, not your common buy/sell and “see ya” agent. Josh “get’s it”. My wife and I couldn’t be happier with our experience with Josh, and he comes with our highest recommendation."
"We had a very unique property with some major surprises. We initially went with the top lake front property listing agency, but found that we were not receiving the expected and promised service and attention. We turned to Josh and found a very pleasant, knowledgeable and responsive individual. When we say we had some major surprises, that may have been an understatement. In spite of the situations that arose, and there turned out to be many, Josh dove in headfirst and went well beyond what could reasonably be expected from an agent. Not only did Josh tackle the numerous problems, he actually solved them while providing options and analyses. In short, Josh made the deal happen!"
"If you are looking for a realtor who KNOWS Austin and the outer limits, then you want Josh's help in finding you the perfect home. We are in our dream home thanks to him.
Because he spent years as a mortgage broker prior to transitioning to a realtor, he knows how every aspect of home buying works: the buying, the selling and the purchasing. This makes him one of the most unique realtors in Austin with the ability to negotiate amazingly. He knows the headache and stress every part of home buying and selling process works, and uses that to deliver outstanding customer service to all his clients. He is a doll to work with and has a great personality too. You'll love him as much as we do."
"Josh has helped us with many real estate transactions over the years. This past fall, he helped us purchase the lot next to our lakehouse (which he also helped us purchase some years before.) We use him over and over because he always exceeds our expectations. He's 110% competent, knowledgeable, dependable and so easy to work with. He's even more detail oriented than I am, and that's saying a lot.
All I have to do is say, "Josh, I want to buy this." and he makes it happen. Can't imagine using anyone else."
"Josh is a true expert in the field. If you are looking for an agent in the Austin area, Josh is your guy. He is professional and even helps seller agents to ensure the buying customer is getting what they need on time. A rarity to see nowadays with a committment to the end customer."
"I have worked with Josh Baellow on real estate transactions for almost twenty years. His knowledge and skills are complimented by his energy and mediation expertise. His understanding of the process beyond the realtor requirements has allowed me to complete deals where additional innovation was needed. Josh is a top shelf asset for anyone looking to buy or sell property."
"When my husband & I had decided to put our house on the market we went through 2 realtors in less than 1 year. We were very frustrated at how things were going & never being informed. We were referred to Josh Bellow by a friend. As soon as we met with Josh we were immediately happy & comfortable with him. He told us exactly what to expect & exactly what we needed to do on our end. He kept in contact constantly & would give us updates as soon as he got them. He was always positive & had great attitude. He made the process go smoothly. We have referred our friends & family to Josh & they have had the same experience."
"We purchased a Short sale and with the Help of Josh, he negotiated a great deal with good guidance for novices in this field."
"We anticipate using him again for another investment property."
"We are extremely satisified."
"I have worked with Josh on multiple real estate purchases and sales. He is amazingly connected within and knowledgable of the Austin markets. He is both an expert negotiator, and salesman, while making the whole process of real estate transactions transparent and easy to understand. And, he's just a really nice guy. I wouldn't recommend him if he hadn't impressed me, and I'm not easily impressed."
"I worked with Josh on two complicated deals. The sale of my then existing house and the purchase of my new house. Within one month's time, Josh was able to creatively master a full price purchase offer on the house that I was selling, and within a very short period of time, find me a great deal on a new house. In addition to the much greater than expected outcome on the sale and purchase, it was also a pleasure working with Josh. He was thoroughly prepared when showing my home, holding open houses, and showing me new properties. Josh is very personable, so it was a great time working with Josh, he made the experience much more fun, and hands free for me than I had excepted. Josh went above and beyond what is expected of a real estate agent. Josh recommended an excellent stager for the house that I was selling, a designer for the house that I was purchasing, a handyman, and even helped with an introduction to my new community, and a connection to local community information and resources. In having been through many, many real estate transactions, Josh is the only real estate agent that has exceeded my expectations at every level, and therefore, the only agent that I would highly recommend."
"Josh helped both my wife and me with our home purchase over the summer and he really took us from start to finish in a highly professional manner. More than that, he helped my wife get through the 'nervous' times, as it was her first house..
Thanks to Josh, we found a house that we're highly pleased with and based off his most recent market research, it's already increased in value!!"
"It was divine intervention when I met Josh not once but twice one afternoon. I had placed myself in a precarious situation with my mortgage at Bank of America after dealing with them for 24 months and was on the verge of foreclosure in February 2012. So Josh stated with the Short Sell process he would take me from Point A to Point B in about six months to sell my property and so he did so. I closed on my property July 16, 2012 and soon after my mortgage account was removed from my credit reports with zero balances and amazingly I have excellent credit - so far. This is after the second occurrence of divine intervention when the buyer decided to paid cash due to the delay in Bank of America's mortgage process. And on top of it all, I have learned about the Short Sell List for future properties. This is truly a fresh start for me! Thank You Josh!"
"Josh has helped us through two transactions, including a very complicated short sale purchase. He knows everything there is to know about short sales! He really held our hands through the process; and his knowledge and skill in dealing with the banks made it an easy process (for us, anyway. LOL!). He answered every question, and explained everything each step of the way. Buying our new house was more exciting and less stressful because of Josh's help."
