Born and raised in the suburbs of St. Louis, Josh has called St. Charles home for most of his life. Greatly impacted by having to evacuate their home during the St. Louis floods of 1993, his memories of the aftermath are still quite vivid. When Josh and his family later found a permanent residence, he realized - even at a young age - how important it was to have a safe and stable home.
With a background in business and biology, he decided to pursue a career as a personal trainer. With a strong work ethic instilled in him by his step-father, Josh evolved into one of the top ten trainers, winning a mentoring award in 2015 and eventually becoming the Fitness Director of a very successful gym.
“I learned that if you want to get somewhere, you have to put in the time.” said Josh. “I tend to be an overachiever, doing several projects at one time.”
With years of success as a trainer, Josh decided it was time to venture into a new world. Little did he know that his experience as a child would foreshadow his desire to help other families find a place to call home. Real estate was always something that interested him and with the encouragement of his godfather, a very successful advisor in Atlanta, he connected with Roy Doskal of GHREA.
As Josh and Roy got to know each other, they realized that they were the perfect complement to one another - each bringing their own set of skills to the table. Between Roy’s Corporate America background and real estate experience and Josh’s sales and people skills, this was a team that was set for success.
Joining a company such as GHREA was also exciting for Josh. As he put it, “I like Grant Hickman’s commitment to the city and community and I wanted to be a part of it.” Working closely with Roy Doskal, Josh looks forward to being part of a great team that can both serve their community and help families to find their dream homes.
