We recently closed on our first ever home (condo) purchase, and Josh Ortiz from Vivre played a pivotal role in that. Josh came with a strong recommendation from a friend, and we understand why! In our initial conversations, Josh gave us helpful advice on how to approach the house search, timelines, and setting ambitious yet realistic expectations. He was quick to grasp our needs and what we were looking for, and made sure we were aware of listings that fit those criteria. He is also extremely organized and responsive – whenever we found a listing we liked, we could count on Josh to quickly follow-up with the listing team and get us more information.
We wanted to work with a real estate agent who had deep familiarity with the local SF market, and Josh delivered. It is clear that he has built strong relationships within the local real estate community, and that selling agents have had positive experiences working with him as well. He was often recognized by name and praised by selling agents when we went to open houses and shared that we were working with him.
After looking at a bunch of places in SF, we found a place we wanted to make an offer on. This part is where Josh truly stood out for us. He helped us put together a competitive offer and was diligent about checking in with the listing agent to get us prompt updates. When our offer was accepted and we entered the escrow process, Josh checked in with us regularly and helped get us answers to questions from the selling team. We couldn’t be happier with our experience working with Josh, and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home in SF!
