With over 30 years of experience, Josephine has dedicated herself to her clients and their needs, focusing on value and results. From one end of the real estate spectrum to the other; knowing the ins and outs of the local residential real estate marketplace, new construction from start to finish, she guides you through the maze of real estate transactions effortlessly.

She began her career as a a mortgage loan processor, then became a loan officer, and real estate agent, which helped her gain a thorough understanding of every step of the home buying process.
