Having lived in Los Angeles his entire life, he prides himself on knowing the city’s ins and outs and the assets of each neighborhood. From Malibu to Beverly Hills and West Hollywood to the San Fernando Valley, to the Eastside, there is not a pocket of Los Angeles Joshua isn’t embedded, giving him that rare ability to help advise clients on neighborhoods they may have never even considered.

Having lived in Los Angeles his whole life, Joshua brings with him a wealth of knowledge, from every cafe and restaurant, to the personality and history of every neighborhood in the city he loves so much. His reach and reputation has garnered great relationships with all the top agents in town. With a professional, yet friendly approach, Joshua looks at every client relationship as a lifetime partnership.

His loyalty and commitment to his clients is unparalleled and as a resource, partner and guide, honesty and integrity is integral to his business.

Prior to his career in real estate, Joshua worked in advertising at top agencies including Deutsch, TBWA/Chiat Day and Ground Zero.

Joshua graduated with a degree in Business Administration and Creative Writing from The University of Southern California. He currently resides in Lake Hollywood with his wife and two children.

What our clients are saying

We always felt like the number 1 client when working with Josh Smith to buy our first home. While the pandemic in 2020 certainly put speed bumps in the way, Josh was with us through the whole process. From the first meeting to buying the home, Josh was always available to us. He exceeded expectations when it came to putting our first offer in and worked magic to secure us a home in a competitive multiple bid situation. His knowledge of the market and his connections to the necessary collaborator...
This was my third property purchase but my first in Los Angeles. I was unfamiliar with the market and the standard procedures, tactics and activities that take place during the home purchase process here. Josh Smith went well beyond what anyone would expect from an agent and certainly went above and beyond what I have ever received in previous sales and purchase experiences. Josh spent a lot of time walking me through strategies and ideas to help me make informed decisions and avoid the typical...
Josh sold our condo for a great price, enabling us to buy the home of our dreams! He found the right comps and understood the market in Hollywood so that we listed for the perfect price. His vendors were all super professional and we were thrilled with the photography of our apartment. He also negotiated with the buyers in an honest and clear way so that both parties were satisfied with the repairs and condition of the condo.
Joshua is the BEST realtor!! We interviewed 3 realtors before deciding to go with Joshua, and he lived up to every expectation and went far beyond. We had purchased a home before, but this time we were buying and selling at the same time and I had no idea how complicated the process can get. Thankfully Joshua was with us the entire way, whether answering our dozen questions far into the evening, coordinating with our lender, or pushing the other sides agent to get us the best possible deal. We e...
Working with Joshua was an absolute dream. My fiancé and myself were incredibly intimidated of the first home purchasing process but Joshua made it feel like we had done it a thousand times. He helped us find the perfect first home and we plan on working only with Joshua for every home after
As a first time home buyer I was warey about finding and working with a new real estate agent. I am SO happy that we found Josh. He made the entire experience seem less daunting, explained everything and was very attentive. I feel I could trust his advice and he was making our needs and wants a priority. He is so knowledgeable and a real pro at his job. I would highly recommend him to everyone!!
We used Josh for our first ever home purchase and were very grateful we did. He walked us through every step of the process, starting with the very basics/brainstorming for months before we even actually started searching in earnest. When we started actually submitting offers, Josh helped us navigate the perils of multiple rounds of offers across multiple properties (including one where we went into escrow and had to withdraw--Josh had no problem helping us redirect even though significant time...
We live on the East Coast and were looking for a second home in LA near our family. With very limited time to see properties Josh ran a seamless process. He was always warm, professional and responsive. He understood our criteria and shortlisted the best matches within our desired budget. He helped us see homes and explained the pros and cons of being in different neighborhoods (since we are not local.) In the end when we found a home we liked Josh was amazing at managing the entire negotiation...
As first time buyers, Josh did a great job leading us through the process and explaining along the way. Josh’s easy going personality made it a pleasure to go to listings and he was always very knowledgeable of the neighborhoods and properties we saw. I highly recommend Josh and his team!
Joshua was a delight to work with. He was responsive and walked me through every step of the process to make sure I was comfortable with the purchase. We had some difficulties dealing with the seller and their agent, who were often not responsive, but Joshua went above and beyond to make sure everything was running on time. I felt like he really advocated for us throughout the process, which is exactly what you need in an agent. I would absolutely buy/sell our next house with him.
We found Joshua to be the perfect realtor for us. He was always available for advice or guidance, he was quick to respond, he was honest, experienced and he always had our best interests at heart. We plan to recommend him to all our friends and family. Joshua WILL help you close on your dream home!
Josh has been with me on my journey to purchase a home for many years, and through it all, he has been a total joy to work with. He has helped me make offers on multiple properties, advised me on important buyer strategies, and helped me finally secure a wonderful home in my ideal neighborhood. When looking for a home, it's invaluable to have an agent you can trust - and Josh was that person for me through and through. From sharing his vast expertise to help me navigate, to answering my myriad...
I am writing this still in disbelief that I am not only moving into my dream home, but that I was able to get a loan and afford my dream home. It may sound corny but Josh has truly made my dreams come true. His knowledge of the market and the process is impressive. He is honest and trustworthy. And the team that he surrounds himself with is top notch. He calls them "the best in the business" and they truly are. He was always available to talk and answer all of my questions in a very informative...
Josh is the most professional Realtor you can find, friendly, honest, and no nonsense. We are very specific on what we needed and he delivered!!! He made my Wife's dreams (and mine) come true!! We are grateful to have him as our Agent. Josh when you coming over for Dinner???
As a first time homebuyer, my nerves were put at ease as Joshua assisted me throughout the entire process from start to finish. He talked me through each step, answering every question I had at any point, whether it was by email or phone. Joshua was not only at each open house and walkthrough with me, but also made himself available when I signed my final loan documents for support. He is open and honest, and will offer his genuine thoughts on each property; never did I once feel as though he...
Josh has helped us buy two homes and sell one. He truly is an effective closer and a people person. Bottom line, he gets the job done, he is fast, efficient, and easy to work with! His understanding and experience with timelines, inspections, the whole escrow process is so reassuring, especially for a new home buyer (in my experience). He is fast, quick, savvy, and reliable in this hot market, and I've found he is a trustworthy negotiator also. He's a great professional to have by your side wh...
Joshua listed our Condo in Encino and did an amazing job selling it. His expertise in negotiating to get us top dollar was the iceing on the cake. After contingencies were lifted from the buyers we had two weeks to find a new home. He did some great negotiating again on an amazing Condo right where we wanted to be! We are beyond thrilled with everything he has done for us.
Josh was a wonderful agent to work with. He was highly involved throughout the entire process and he kept me well educated and informed along the way. He is very trustworthy. In fact, I had to do my closing from across the country and I had to trust Josh to do my final walk through and complete the closing on my behalf. He did an amazing job and went above and beyond to ensure I was comfortable and protected. I wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.
Josh is the most amazing person to work with. His knowledge of various neighborhoods is incredible, and he really is amazing about sharing the pros/cons of various properties. He responded so quickly to our every query, it was amazing. AND his negotiation skills are top notch; he was able to get us into our dream house at an amazing price, and negotiated so skillfully with the property's difficult agents, it's incredible. Josh truly made a frustrating process so much less stressful, and I reco...
We recently sold our home and Josh was an amazing help and fully professional. The house did not sit on the market very long due to his endless pursuit to find us a buyer. We closed within a reasonable time frame and transactions were done relatively smoothly. We're very happy with the sale of our home and will use Josh again for our next purchase.
Josh has represented me in two purchases. Josh has always exhibited diligence, responsiveness, and openness in helping us with our purchases. I would strongly suggest Josh to friends and family and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Josh is such a pleasure to work with! We bought 2 properties with Josh and hope to have the opportunity to buy more with him by our side! He is the perfect blend of assertive and persuasive. He always listened, absorbed and respected our goals and priorities and always kept those in mind throughout the whole process. His experience is invaluable and he artfully guides you through the process with ease and calm. You'll make the right choice asking Josh to be on your team :)
Working with Josh was a truly great experience, and I would highly recommend him to anyone else looking for any property related assistance (and I already have)! After interviewing other realtors who were urging us to fit their standard strategy for selling our property, we were pleased with Josh's willingness to tailor his approach to our desired strategy. He was able to guide and educate us on the process without ever being pushy - truly acting as a member of our team. Managed an above asking...
Josh is a fantastic realtor. He helped us both buy and sell our most recent homes. On the sale side, he walked us through the process, got us into a multiple offer situation and helped us select the buyer who made the most sense for our home (and someone who offered $50K more than asking!). Then, he helped us as we negotiated through a long and arduous escrow/closing process. On the buy side he was fantastic in negotiating with a not-so-with-it seller's agent and helped us get the home under l...
Joshua is pure professional. He did his research, knew the market in our area, heard our needs, and got us above asking price for our condo. Joshua was responsive and easy to work with. Definitely recommend working with him if you have the chance.
Joshua's expertise helped us through the home buying process while we were traveling out of the area. He was readily available and followed up quickly.
Extremely professional. Handled everything quickly and was able to get us more than asking! Would recommend Josh and team for anyone looking to buy/sell a home in LA
Josh was so helpful in my purchase of my dream home for my family. He negotiated a great price and was able to get me over 50k in credits which really helped. Josh always answered my calls and made this purchase super easy. I highly recommend him to anyone purchasing a home.
Josh has been my broker for about 6 years and he has never let us down. He helped me purchase two homes and sold my first home. He never disappoints! He got our home for a good amount under ask and was always on it. He knows a ton about neighborhoods all around LA and just a great guy all around! He is the best real estate agent out there - I absolutely recommend him to anyone and everyone looking to sell or buy a home.
Josh helped me buy my dream house in 2012 and was absolutely exceptional in every regard. There's no way I would have ever found the house, let alone won out to close it, had it not been for his counsel, energy and persistence. I would highly recommend him -- and indeed have done so many times -- to anyone looking to either buy or sell their property.
Joshua helped us find the perfect house in a great neighborhood and at a great value. His representation, knowledge, and advice throughout the process of finding and purchasing a home was invaluable. We can't thank him enough.
Josh did a great job selling our old house. It had been listed previously and wasn't getting any offers, so we took it off the market and rented it for a couple years. We then hired Josh, who literally had multiple offers after the first showing. We continue to recommend him to friends and family.
I have had the chance to work with Josh on multiple occasions. Josh is responsive, creative, and a trusted professional. There were numerous times where Josh's professionalism helped in closing a successful transaction.
Josh was always on the ball throughout the whole process. He was really patient, even though we were finicky and we took almost a year to find the right house for us. When we found the house, Josh negotiated a reduction in the asking price and we were thrilled.
Josh is an excellent realtor. He helped us sell our house with multiple offers above asking, in 10 days, and helped us purchase our new home within budget, and handled challenging sellers and buyers with ease! We would use him again in a heartbeat, and you should too.
I would recommend that anyone looking for a real estate professional seek Joshua Smith's services. He was incredibly knowledgeable about every neighborhood we were interested in, made the process incredibly easy to navigate, was always immediately responsive, got us a great deal and helped us make critical decisions that saved us money and got us our dream home. We looked at a handful of homes, put an offer on only two, and got the one we wanted. We are confident that would have never happened...
Nothing but amazing things to say about Josh. He is thorough, attentive, he listens and he makes finding and buying a house a really pleasurable experience! He even plans out where to have lunch during the day so there's a fun and delicious break after seeing house after house. When it comes to negotiating, Josh strikes a hard but fair bargain. He's tough, but he knows the market and when enough is enough. He is friends with all the other brokers, which gives him special treatment and puts his c...
Josh is my go-to for all my real estate needs and advice. He sold my condo and has helped me find and buy my dream home. He knows LA, is creative, personable and best of all closes deals.
Josh is awesome. He helped my wife and I find a fantastic house in Encino. He's super knowledgeable about all of Los Angeles and a pleasure to hang out with. Very responsive and with a few key suggestions he was able to make sure that our bid beat out 8 others (without overspending). Nice work Josh.
Joshua is the best at everything an agent should be. He knows the game better than anybody else and is able to put his clients needs/wants ahead of his own. He knowledgeable about everything from restaurants to which escrow company to use, and on top of all that, he's a genuinely good guy. He represented me as a buyer and guided me through the process of buying my first home seamlessly and efficiently. Joshua is my only recommendation when it comes to real estate agents, and if you're looking fo...
I couldn't recommend Josh any higher. He helped us close on the purchase of our first house, and negotiated a really great price for us. During the 9 months leading up to the sale, Josh was incredibly helpful with the searching process, and helped us put together two competitive offers which we were unsuccessful on. He was really responsive to our needs, and was well connected with a lot of the agents on the selling side, which really helps. Above all, Josh is just a really good guy, and made...
We have been working with Joshua Smith for at least 8 years now. He has done an excellent job working tediously to secure our real estate purchases. He works hard, is extremely knowledgable with regard to the real estate market and fights to secure your dream home. I highly recommend him in an industry full of part time, underwhelming agents that we previously worked with.
Josh must have taken me to one hundred houses in LA. More than just being knowledgeable and available, Josh was compassionate and thoughtful. There were times when I was on the fence about making an offer on a house, and Josh actually talked me out of it. Not many realtors would work against their own interests to make sure you're getting what you want. Even when I was losing hope during the process, Josh was optimistic and encouraging. We ended up with our dream house and Josh was able naviga...
Josh helped us get into the Arts District before it was really on the map. It was our first time buying and Josh held our hands through the whole process. He's a true professional and I would recommend him to anyone.
Josh is an amazing resource for anyone looking to buy a home in the LA area. Highly recommend! Josh helped us buy a home when we were moving from NYC to the LA area. He also helped us sell a condo apartment that our family owned. In both cases he provided a very high level of service.
We're not easy clients to please. We had lots of desires, including architecture, views, square footage, schools. But we did not have a lot of time, as we'd sold our previous home and only had a couple of month to find something new. Despite an incredibly competitive market with everything getting multiple bids and going well over asking price, Josh nailed it in helping us find and land the perfect home at the right time. He knows the city, the loopholes, how to hustle, and he's a great guy.
Josh helped me find the perfect home that fit my needs. It took almost 2 years and Josh's understanding of what I needed and patience level gave me confidence that we would find the right property. I highly recommend him and would use him again!
Josh was insightful, helpful and responsive throughout the process of looking for and buying my family's first home. I could not recommend him higher and anyone willing to work with him will be very happy they did.
