Josh joins Highland Partners in 2020 with 10 years of experience as a full-time Real Estate Professional, He brings with him a personal history of building, renovations, and property management lending a ground-up, inside-out understanding to the value of real estate as structure, business, and home.
In 2008 Josh and his wife Anne got their start by purchasing a major fixer in Oakland and completing the entire remodel on their own. Their enthusiasm for property development and real estate lead them to join Lawton Associates in Rockridge and more recently San Francisco’s Sothebys’s International Realty.
Josh has since completed dozens of real estate renovations for their clients. Experience and attention to detail give Josh and Anne an advantage in a fiercely competitive environment for Buyers, and especially for Sellers interested in a top dollar return. Their focus is to bring maximum value to a process requiring responsiveness, vision, creativity, safety, management, and humor.
A 7th generation Oregonian, Josh was raised on design and architecture in the Pacific Northwest and has made the Bay Area his home for the last 35 years.

When they’re not exploring the wonders of the Bay Area through the eyes of their young daughter, Josh and Anne cycle the hills of the Bay from the Marin headlands to Diablo Mountain.
