What Clients Are Saying About Us
Read what Josh's clients have to say about him:
Josh at Sloan Realty Group is the only way to go when buying or selling. I purchased my first home with Josh in 2010. In June 2013 I went back to Josh to sell. With his knowledge, and excellent negotiating skills Josh sold my home for 30k over the asking price! His efficiency got the deal done quickly, and he was there anytime I had a question or concern. He stayed in constant communication and explained every step of the process so I could have a better understanding of everything going on. He made my home selling process stressless, quick, and very profitable.
His knowledge, professionalism, and expertise are second to none, and I recommend Josh to everyone I come across having any kind of real estate needs.

This is the best realty group in town. I first used their services 6 years ago. When we decided it was time to sell our condo and to find a larger home, there was no question as to who we would call. Our house was prepared so well that it only took 2 days to find the next family to call it home. Josh and his team worked around the clock to find us a home to satisfy our new requirements. I would recommend this realty group to anyone who is thinking of selling or buying a home.

When I decided to sell my condo and move closer to family, my search for the "perfect" Realtor began. Not willing to pick someone off a list or use the friend of a friend's friend, I decided to visit a variety of open houses in my immediate area to observe firsthand how that particular listing Realtor interacted with prospective buyers and represented the interests of the seller.
Of all the realtors I observed, Josh Sloan was the only one that seemed to posses the high level of professionalism, depth of life and real estate experience, a willingness to listen, and communicate in ways that checked off all the "Yes" boxes on my list of "must have's." At our first one-on-one meeting Josh further confirmed my belief that he was not just any Realtor, but rather a truly gifted professional that loves working with his clients as if they were a beloved member of his own family.
Shortly after putting the house on the market we discovered our timeline for getting the house ready to show went from several months down to four weeks. Josh reassured me that with his help we'd meet our move-out deadline. Contractors were contacted and told Josh Sloan, my Realtor, would be scheduling and overseeing their projects. Josh took it from there! We moved out on time. The next day Josh had crews on the job. Within days all projects were completed. The condo sparkled inside and out.
From day one Josh was also working behind the scenes, alerting folks that the property would soon be available for showing. Within a few days of the open house we had multiple offers. The house sold above list price with a 21-day escrow. Since I was now living several hundred miles away, all the legal paperwork needed to be handled via secure measures. Josh and his Team (Vicki, Samantha, & Veronica) worked as one to make sure everything was accurate and done in a timely manner. The whole process went off without any problems.
If you want a Realtor who is an expert at what he does, listens to you, speaks the truth, guides you through the whole real estate process, is willing to go the extra mile when necessary, and keeps you informed in a timely manner then I highly recommend Josh Sloan and his team.
~ Mary B
Josh has the experience and marketing skills that sold our home in 2 days! He earned our trust the first day we met him with his patience and his ability to answer all our questions as first time home sellers. When we moved out of state prior to closing, Josh made sure to check on our property and coordinate all the aspects involved during escrow. He kept in excellent communication with us through the entire process. If you're looking for a realtor Phone Sloan.

I had the privilege of first meeting Josh over 11 years ago, when I was in the market to buy a home. It was such a wonderful experience that I told him at the time that if I ever sold my home, he would be the one I called on. Well, 11 years later, I contacted Josh as I was now in the market to sell this home. He made the process simple and we were able to sell my home for 98.3% of the asking price! Josh kept in constant contact with me, letting me know what was happening every step of the way. He made this experience easy, painless and completely enjoyable. I can't thank him enough for his help and expertise in real estate. His group is the one to go with when it comes to buying or selling a home.
~ Dhani S.
Josh got me multiple offers and top dollar for my house in just 48 hours! This is the 4th time I used Josh and his team to either buy or sell a property in San Diego. He is an honest professional who is very communicative, knows the market and his marketing skills are first class. I highly recommend Sloan Realty Group to anyone that is considering buying or selling a home.
~ Carmen B.
Josh did a great job selling my home. He walked me through every step in the process. Josh was able to get my 100% of the asking price in just 4 days of being in the market. I would highly recommend Josh and Sloan Realty to anyone.
~ Brian & Kayla G.
Made purchasing my first home easy and stress free. Pushed to save me thousands in a sellers market. Would highly recommend Sloan Realty Group.
~ Erik S.
Josh sold my house for over 100% of the list price in less than 24 hours! His marketing plan was spot on, he always communicated with me about everything that was happening, took the time to answer my questions and was available anytime I needed him or his team. I would recommend Sloan Realty Group to anyone thinking about buying or selling a home. His communication was super effective and to me he is the King of Real Estate!!!!
~ Michael E.
We found Joshua by searching the internet. We were impressed with his website and decided to call him for his services. Joshua helped us sell our home in College Grove and later purchase a home in Bay Park. We delayed our purchase by 6 months and Joshua was very patient with us. We valued his expertise in the San Diego Market and the Process of the purchase. Each time we met with Josh, he was always professional and willing to go the extra mile. His charming personality also helped make the purchase go smoothly. We are very happy in our home in Bay Park and thank Josh still to this day. My husband and I will continue to refer Joshua to our friends, family and coworkers.
~ Richard & Lorrie G.
When I first interviewed Josh Sloan to sell my home, he impressed me as a capable, experienced professional. Soon thereafter I was even more impressed. He expertly analyzed the market data; then created an innovative marketing strategy that resulted in a fast, efficient sales process - with a sales price over list. Besides the financial benefit, what made this such a pleasant experience was Josh's enthusiastic, friendly attitude. Not only did he ALWAYS initiate and return calls in a timely fashion, he "listened actively." Understanding what I had to say was important to him. I have bought and sold many pieces of property over my lifetime. Josh stands out as one of the best realtors I've ever engaged. He and his team well deserve the 5-Star rating. I recommend him unreservedly.
~ Tina O.
Best Realtor in San Diego!! Josh is so easy to work with - he got us in to see all of the properties we wanted to see and ended up purchasing a great home in Encinitas!
~ Mark & Diane H.
We can not say enough wonderful things about Josh and his team. Not only is he very knowledgeable but he truly cares about your needs and goes to great lengths to make sure you are completely happy with the outcome. We contacted Josh back in March of last year. After our first meeting with him it was clear that he was the best man for the job. He had a great amount of insight on the areas we were interested in and put together a very concise plan to get our house sold as quick as possible. What stood out to me through the entire process was Josh's dedication. Whatever we needed, he was there to offer assistance and was always very enthusiastic and positive. As luck would have it we were scheduled to close during the week Josh had planned a trip to Europe months before. Aubree did a wonderful job of making sure everything was taken care of and although we told him it wasn't necessary, Josh worked endlessly on his trip. Even though everything was smooth sailing back here, Josh was up until the early morning hours texting with us to make sure we were all set. He truly cares about his clients and is there 110% from beginning to end. We have already gone ahead and recommended him to my parents who are looking to relocate to San Diego. He is absolutely the best at what he does and would recommend him to anyone buying or selling in San Diego!!!

I've read multiple reviews on Josh Sloan, and I can tell you from experience they are on point! Josh will go the extra mile to help you out, respond to your every concern and get the deal done. His knowledge of the market, along with customer service is second to none. I've been in the military for 23 years and I could only wish all the people I worked with had Josh's ability to work hard, answer honest and truthfully, and make things happen with the attitude he has. He scrambled and worked tirelessly back in 2009 when the market was horrible to ensure I received the best deal possible, with little to no monetary gain for himself. Every year since then, he has called to make sure things were still going right, and even sent me a Christmas Card once a year to let me know he appreciated my business. There was no other logical choice when it came time for me to sell that same condo four years later. He is always on time, always available and works like no other realator I've ever seen. My condo sold in one week above asking price! You can say some of that had to do with the market in San Diego, but I can assure you that he made the sell extremely easier than it would have been with some of the realators I've spoken with lately. I was offered a chance to work with a new realtor to purchase another home and get some cash back at the final table, but after meeting with them and seeing how lazy and selfish both seller and buyers realators have become with their poor attitudes and worse customer service skills, I am gladly passing up on that opprotunity to deal with a true professional. I highly recommend giving Josh the opprotunity (or anyone in his company) to work with you if you are even considering entering into the housing market. You won't be dissappointed.
~ Mark T.
Josh & team are AWESOME to work with. Josh sold my home within two weeks of listing it and got a lot above the listing price. I HIGHLY recommend Josh & his team for all your real estate needs.
~ Dreama M.
Josh was instrumental in helping us search for our new home. He was very patient as we looked through many options, and very helpful when we discussed each property. He was extremely knowledgeable about every phase of the sale and I would recommend him and his team to any one looking to buy or sell their home, even if they are just thinking about it for now!
~ Ben & Jordan L.
Josh and Aubree were simply great. They were professional, walked us through the process and continually demonstrated that they were focused on our best interest. Highly recommend them to anyone and will be using them when we buy our next house.
~ Chris & Michelle H.
My experience for the Sloan Realty Group was nothing short of perfect. My boyfriend and I are relocating to San Diego from Hawaii in October 2013, and the concern we had was that at that time I would be 7 months pregnant. We wanted to establish a home prior to our move so that we would have everything set up and ready before our baby was here.
We decided that in June we would take a week to fly out to San Diego and be as aggressive as possible to ensure we had a house before our return back to Hawaii. I spoke with several real estate agents via phone interviews and found that I was most comfortable with both Joshua and Chris of Sloan Realty Group. This was one of the best decisions I could've made! They were confident, real-estate savvy, honest, and completely understanding of our situation and did everything they could to find us a home in such a short period of time!
In one week, Chris spent hours upon hours looking at properties that were available on the market, contacting listed agents, and showing us homes that met our wants and needs. Chris was so great to work with and made sure that communication was always key; whether it was prior to our San Diego visit, while in San Diego, and after our return to Hawaii. We were able to reach Chris via text messages, phone calls, and emails with a quick turn around response! We were so comfortable with Chris and his team and because of that, our process in buying our first family home in San Diego was such a breeze.
My real estate agent in Hawaii while purchasing my home there were great, but Chris' professionalism, expertise, and profound care for us makes him the absolute best! The Sloan Realty Group has my highest recommendation for all those looking to buy in the San Diego area!! I can't thank enough for all you have done for us. We are so excited to move into our dream home come October!

Joshua Sloan is fantastic to work with. I recently worked with him on the sale of a piece of undeveloped land in Escondido. This was a slightly special situation as my family lives in Chicago and we were trying to do this sale remotely. Knowing the market for vacant land in California is a bit difficult Josh was great about managing expectations and showing us relevant comps for similar listings in the area. The thing I most appreciated was the constant and consistent dialogue as well as the fast turnaround whenever we had a question or concern. We greatly valued Josh's transparency and communication. So many Realtors these days simply want to get your listing and then let it sit or never followup. Josh knows the market and knows what it will take to get a deal done. After meeting in person and readjusting our price target, the property quickly and easily sold. Josh did a fantastic job working with multiple parties in multiple time zones and I would highly recommend him for future real estate transactions.
~ Nick G.
Josh and his team were amazing!!! They helped us sell our home and find a new home to fit our family needs. When we started the whole process I was feeling overwhelmed but they helped make everything go as smoothly as humanly possible! I can't see using anyone but Josh and his team.
~ Christen M.
Josh goes above and beyond!!!! Sold our house fast and above list/ Outstanding communication, will use again!!!
~ Mike M.
Josh Sloan should be considered the best in the business. Their way of listening to my needs and making me feel comfortable not only made buying my first home an easy process but later selling that home an even easier process. I not only trusted them with buying and selling that house, I also used their service to purchase my second home. I can confidently say that I would use their services for all of my future business. They offer more than business transactions, they offer lasting relationships.

We are so happy we choose Josh Sloan Realty Group! We have nothing but wonderful things to say about Josh and his team. From the first time we met him, Josh made us feel comfortable and supported as we searched for our perfect home. Josh truly listened to us, and helped us find a home that fit all of our needs, wants, and budget. What was perhaps the most impressive to me was the fact that Josh was never pushy and never made us feel like he wanted us to buy any particular house. We were able to choose our home with Josh's guidance and impressive knowledge, but without any pressure. Once we put an offer in, Josh and his team kicked it into overdrive to be there for us every day, and to move the process along smoothly, quickly, and painlessly. Josh and his team deliver exemplary customer service from beginning to end. I would recommend Sloan Realty Group to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
~ John & Sia W.
Josh Sloan and his team walked us through every step of our home buying process! This IS the team to use if ever selling or buying a home. I had my condo sold in a week and found a house real quick. No matter what time of the day I had any questions they were there to answer (including weekends). I would never entertain any other realty group. One word to describe their services - EXCELLENT! Thanks again for everything Josh!
~ Mark T.
So I wanted to take a moment and talk about my experience with Josh Sloan Realty Group. So I am active duty navy and it was time for me to PCS out of San Diego. This became time for me to start interviewing realtors and getting my townhouse on the market. I ended up interviewing 3 separate realtors and Josh was the only one who made the most impactful impression on me. I asked him point blank during the interview.... what makes you better than your competitors? He said that his 15 years of experience as a realtor is something that doesn't just happen over night. After doing some research it turns out that he was spot on. The average realtor only lasts about 18 months. So for someone to be in the business and still make a living, they def know what they're doing. So I hired Josh and his team to list my property.
His marketing plan was spot on. Based off of his recommendation, we would list the property on the MLS on the 1st of February and not let anyone come and see the property until the 4th (Saturday). This was perfect because I was going to be out of town during this time. About a week after meeting with Josh, his business associate/wife Aubree showed up with a professional photographer to take the listing photos and make some minor tweaks and adjustments for a better shown house. Her keen attention to detail in preparing the house to be shown was integral to getting the property sold and to be honest, is an extremely vital step. Having someone like that on Josh's team is critical in running a profitable business. So Saturday came and while I was out of town one of my neighbors called me and said the amount of foot traffic at the property was insane. My neighbor stated that they had between 150-200 people come thru the property during the open house!! That's insane! Obviously hearing news like that would make any seller excited! Then the offers started to roll in. We had two offers that day one for full list price and the. One 5k over list price. Unfortunately, those two offers ended up getting cold feet and walking away from the deal (nothing Josh did wrong by any means) just the nature of the beast. Some people just get too excited and realize they didn't want the responsibility of home ownership. Then the last offer that came in came in at 10k over list price and we closed in less than the typical 30 day escrow period that usually takes place. Needless to say I was overjoyed to be getting 10k over list price!
One thing that I cannot stress enough is the level of customer service that Josh provided! I mean he was keeping me in the loop from phone calls to texts to emails 3 times a day during the whole process! Additionally, I was out of town again and the buyers wanted some repairs to be done by me and one of the repairs was filling in some holes in a piece of drywall. Before I could say anything about hiring a contractor, Josh said he'd take care of it himself. Grabbed a ladder, some drywall mud, a putty knife and made the repairs for me so I didn't have to pay a few hundred bucks to a contractor! Again, the level of customer service is out of this world! It really takes a LOT to impress me but Josh and his team did exactly that over and over again. Ya know, josh has a phrase, "who you hire truly does matter." I couldn't agree more with him! If you're looking to sell a property or purchase a property in the San Diego area, seriously... stop looking right now and give Josh a call. You'll be glad that you did and after meeting him you'll understand why he is the best in the business! Thanks again Josh! Seriously, couldn't be more happier!!!

Our experience with finding our first home with Josh was incredible. My dad had spoken to a few people about our search (my parents live in Indiana) and by some chance, he found out that Josh (who he had met before, in Indiana) was a realtor out here in California. We decided to go with him and it was an excellent decision!
Finding a new house can definitely have its ups and downs. We saw a house that we absolutely loved, and unfortunately our offer was not the highest. We were so disappointed, but Josh never stopped looking for houses for us, and we looked at houses on houses on houses! He was extremely determined to get us in a new place, and one that we liked. He was not pushy at all. If we didn't like a house, no problem--on to the next one!
Another thing I appreciated about Josh was his honesty. If we were looking at a house and he knew the neighborhood was not that safe, he would tell you. This was of utmost importance to me as I am a runner, and need my neighborhood to be safe enough for me to exercise. Also, if there was something he noticed about the house (it needing major work or something) he would tell us as well. This was extremely valuable to us as first time homeowners without parents in town to help us look.
Josh communicates extremely well, and really touched base with us every step of the way. He always kept us up to date with what was going on with which offer. We found our dream house, and even after purchasing it, he has checked in and made sure the move-in went smoothly.
If you are in the market for a new home, you should definitely look into Josh Sloan Realty!
~ Kate & Aries D.
Josh and his team are amazing, they helped us trough the process of buying our first house fast and stress free. We found him just when we were about to give up after a year of had been working with a different realtor and no results at all. He helped us to get the keys of our house in a month, explained us everything in great detail and answered every single question we could ask. He went above and beyond our expectations as a person and as a professional, he made everything happen so easy, he and his team were always available to ease our mind and answer even the smallest question we had. All in all, he made us believe when we had lost our hopes and thanks to that, we have a place to call home of our own now.
~ Hugo & Liliana Q
Josh was always available via cell email or in person. That was great.
