REALTOR® Josh Hummel is a natural-born problem solver, and he loves navigating transactions for his clients! Having been in real estate for over 5 years and also having experience in property management, Josh has found that his ability to provide quality service stems from getting to know people on a deeper level. He loves building relationships with his clients that go beyond the bounds of a real estate transaction, and Josh’s clients especially appreciate his sense of integrity—he believes that no one holds him to a higher standard than himself.
Josh has been around different areas of real estate for most of his life. When he lived in Connecticut toward the end of high school and during college, Josh renovated homes. After moving to Washington he began working as a property manager for a property management company that oversaw more than 500 rental properties. When the property management firm added a real estate branch, Josh became a transaction manager and spent 5 years learning the ins and outs of real estate transactions. In 2014, he obtained his broker’s license and balanced being both a REALTOR® and transaction coordinator. Josh loves that no two real estate transactions are alike, and each experience presents its own path to navigate and the opportunity to grow and meet new people.
Josh lives in Auburn, and being outdoors makes him happy whether he’s hiking, golfing (he’s an avid golfer!), exploring cities, or traveling to new countries and diving into local cultures. He also loves cooking, eating at new restaurants, and trying new foods. Supporting Ronald McDonald House's Family Meal Program is one of Josh’s passions as well—he loves organizing groups to prepare meals and being able to support incredible families. Josh is also a huge advocate for solving the homeless crisis.
Q: What can clients expect when working with you? How do you typically communicate with them?
A: I love guiding clients through the process of real estate transactions by making sure they're well prepared for every aspect and never surprised by anything. Each of my clients receives a flowchart mapping out the steps of the transaction so they always know what's to come.
