Josh Muncey's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Josh Muncey

  • Josh listed and sold my home

      Josh, and his team at The Muncey Group, successfully helped me navigate buying my first house in a competitive multiple offer environment and then helped me again, just five years later, sell that same home in an even more competitive market? His claims of a full-service approach were realized when his teammate, Beth, managed tenant move-out and oversaw contractors for a large renovation project prior to listing the house after I had already relocated several states away. Thanks to Josh's expert advice about “worth-it” renovations, staging and most importantly pricing, he sold my home in less than a week for a record breaking, multiple bid, $104k over-asking, all cash purchase price following a jam-packed open house. WOW!

    • Josh helped me buy a home

        Josh Muncey and his entire team are without question the best realty group Tom and I have ever worked with when buying/selling our homes in 5 cities over 40+ years. As newcomers to Boston, Josh's breadth and depth of knowledge of the market (especially Jamaica Plain/surrounding areas) was invaluable. He actively targeted our specific priorities and, as important, kept us focused and realistic in the city's competitive environment. When Tom and I decided it best to adjust our search from larger to smaller properties, Josh readily shifted his search without missing a beat. Josh's seamless collaboration with sales partner Ashlee Reed was extremely helpful. Their "on point" and fluid communication with one another and with us was timely, responsive and solution-oriented. It was filled with valuable follow-through and exceptional resources and referrals. Ashlee became another set of eyes and ears during inspection and meetings with contractors. Her astute insights, knowledge and generosity were immeasurable. In sum, Tom and I felt we were partners with Josh's entire cohesive Muncey Group team. We felt it through general communications with staff, Stanley Abraham's facilitation of our closing and more specifically with Josh and Ashlee. Their kindness and transparency, on top of their expertise and unwavering attention to both tangibles and intangibles, give us every reason to recommend The Muncey Group without an ounce of hesitation.

      • Josh listed and sold my home

          The team went above and beyond to sell our house! My husband and I moved to Brooklyn, New York and after renting our property in Jamaica Plain for two years, we decided to sell. We both work and have a new baby and it was scary to think of managing the process of selling our house while living in another state. We could not be happier with how The Muncey Group handled the sale of our home. They took care of everything from coordinating with our renters to making sure the property was in good condition to show and getting us the right price! We will most definitely be repeat customers after having such a great experience.

          - Amazing Teamwork
        • In the market to purchase in the JP/Roslindale area, I found Josh through yelp and was convinced to try his services after reading the reviews on his website--they glowed about his patience, his knowledge of the area, and his skill in navigating the labyrinth of the buying process. Well, I can confirm the reviews are all true. I walked into my first viewing with him to 'scout' & not really in a position to make an offer at that moment--to my dismay, it was the perfect place ("oh great, now this one will get snapped up and I'll be trying to find something like it forever"). Well, long story short, Josh talked to the seller's broker (whom he'd worked with before and had a good relationship with...the benefits of experience) and was able to script a deal that worked for me--I'm writing this review from this condo and couldn't be happier with it. Josh is accessible, outstanding at what he does, and just a good guy. He deserves all the positive feedback he receives.

          - Patience and Knowledge
        • As first time homebuyers my husband and I were very nervous about choosing the right home at the right time. Josh Muncey walked us through the process and explained each step of the way. He always respected the pace of our search and encouraged us when we found our dream home! With a competing offer on the table we scrambled to make our offer competitive and Josh was there for every step of the way. It was a pleasure to work with Josh and both my husband and I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. As a bonus, Josh is a super nice guy, funny and easy to get along with.

          - First-time homebuyer
        • SUMMARY:Josh made the sale of our condo - while living on the other side of the country - painless. How is that even possible? Josh is amazing at his job, that's how.DETAILS:When we moved away from Boston, the market was such that we decided to rent out our condo rather than sell at a loss. Fast forward 4 years, we are living in Honolulu, and our life circumstances made it the right time to sell. We knew we weren't going to make a huge profit - we just wanted to take the long-distance landlord burden off our shoulders and not lose our shirts. Good old Yelp led us to contact Josh.From initial contact, Josh was knowledgeable, helpful and patient. He made genuine (for your benefit, not his) recommendations on timing, staging, fix-ups, pricing etc but was never pushy. He expertly maneuvered our condo onto the market so that we had multiple offers after the first open house. He then skillfully got the offers up to our asking price. When it was paperwork time, he didn't just forward and expect us to wade through it, he summarized it and when applicable, made a recommendation on what action to take and explained why. Being busy professionals who are not necessarily fluent in legal-ese, we appreciated this greatly. Bottom line: we sold for what we were hoping, which was more than we were expecting - which is pretty awesome in this market.More than doing his job beautifully, Josh truly went above and beyond his scope of responsibilities. He coordinated with our tenants to get keys when they moved out. He forwarded mail to us. He coordinated a contractor to do some cosmetic work. Everything we could not do because we were physically not there, he kindly did for us. Never once did he make us feel like he was doing a big favor for us...even though he was. And most of all, he seems like a genuinely nice guy and was a pleasure to work with. We'd recommend him wholeheartedly to any of our Boston friends.

          - Out of State Sale
        • Josh helped me sell my JP condo while I was living in NYC. If I could add extra stars I would. My experience with Josh was absolutely top notch.I feel so lucky to have found him! Josh went above and beyond in every way. He organized everything that needed to be done for the sale-- from painting to handyman to staging. He not only found people to do the needed work but also coordinated the logistics of letting them in to do it. I was probably not the easiest client to deal with being out of town and very busy, but he was unwavering in his professionalism and patience. While his practical help in getting my condo ready for the sale was invaluable, it was Josh's knowledge of the local real estate market that really makes him stand out. He skillfully managed pricing strategy, timing of listing, and, once bids came in, strategies for negotiating with potential buyers. My condo sold almost immediately for above asking price. I have no doubt that it was Josh's skill as a real estate broker that made this happen.Also of note, I did not have any personal connection to Josh prior to working with him. He reached out to a Zillow listing I posted when I first decided to sell. It was pure laziness on my part that led me to him.

          - professionalism
        • I have lived in Boston for almost 15 years now (wow, that's scary) and moved approximately once per year in that time. And Josh is the single best realtor that I have dealt with.About a year ago, I was considering purchasing a condo in Cambridge. Josh kept in regular contact with me and constantly updated me with new places on the market that fit my criteria. He never sent me an annoying email like: "Hey, I know you want to live near Central Square and need parking and want a two bedroom, but here's a one bedroom in Somerville without parking that I thought might interest you."A few times, he even picked me up, drove me to see places, and then dropped me right back at my apartment. He clearly knows a lot of about the real estate industry, because he was able to ask the seller's agent questions that I would never have thought of. Questions that really informed my decision on whether to make an offer.But most importantly, unlike other realtors, he never once tried to push a condo on me so he could get his commission. He was always honest about places we saw, often saying that he didn't think a condo was "right for me" before even hearing what I thought about the place. This is in complete contrast to the realtor I worked with before Josh who, no matter how awful a place was, would instantly say as we walked out the door: "You should definitely put an offer in, because a place like this won't last on the market." I wouldn't put an offer in, and months later, the price would have dropped significantly and the condo would still be sitting on the market. Imagine losing tens of thousands of dollars because your realtor convinced you to put an offer in on a substandard place?Ultimately, I didn't end up purchasing a condo, but I keep in fairly regular contact with Josh these days. And he still updates me on what's out there. I'm glad to see he's doing so well.

          - Friendly
        • We chose to work with Josh, in large part, based on Yelp feedback - so we thought it would only be right to pay it forward.To wrap it up simply - WORK WITH JOSH. You won't regret it. We relocated from the Midwest, and had a rough idea of the areas that we liked. With the chaos of the current housing market - multiple bids, aggressive agents, properties getting snapped up in less than a day - we needed an amazing agent. Why choose Josh:- He's very knowledgable, and has the benefit of attending weekly broker tours to preview properties ahead of many other agents.- He's cool, calm and collected...but he also has a great sense of humor. Trust us, that's helpful when you're stressed out of your mind about an impending transaction.- He's not pushy, and he will always give an honest opinion on price, negotiations, and whether or not a property is truly a good fit for your family and lifestyle.- He will continue to check in on you well after the deal is done. He genuinely cares and builds great relationships.So there you have it - best of luck!

          - Knowledgable
        • I could not imagine working with anyone other than Josh when buying a home. He is the antithesis of ever negative stereotype about real estate agents.My wife and I were first-time home buyers looking to move back to Roslindale from the other side of the river, but we never thought we would be able to afford a place in Roslindale. We heard so many rumors about places going to tens of thousands over asking after protracted bidding wars. Josh talked us through the myths and realities of the Roslindale housing market. His knowledge of the market and reputation in the community gave us the confidence to pursue home ownership in Roslindale.Josh will work with you on every phase of your home buying journey from answering your most basic questions about the process in general, to pointing out things that could help or hurt the eventual resale of a property, to making recommendations about all the other people/services you need to buy a home. Never once did I second guess or find the need to question Josh's advice (and I am someone who routinely argues with the healthcare decision made by doctors with decades of experience) during any phase of the process.If you want to make the home buying process as pleasant and stress-free as it could possibly be, hire Josh!

          - Pleasant
        • Josh Muncey was an amazing agent. He helped me sell my JP condo while I was living out of state and it could not have been easier. He went above and beyond what your average agent would do, including making suggestions on how to stage the house, meeting contractors and painters during prepping the house for listing, and even running to the hardware store with the handyman to fix a cabinet. He put forth a truly amazing effort and I am convinced that my condo would not have sold as quickly or for as good of a price without Josh.Like others have written, Josh has a great demeanor and was willing to work within our budget and schedule constraints to have the best showing for the condo. He was realistic and we really appreciated he constructive suggestions as well as his honesty. Josh and his team provided me with the best realtor experience I have ever had.

          - Helpful and Prepared
        • Rave reviews for Josh Muncey. We recently worked with Josh on the puchase of our first home and are thrilled to give him our highest endorsement. Josh is different from other agents because he's:HONEST. When we wanted to put an offer on a place that missed some of our "must haves," Josh talked us out of it. He put our needs as home buyers ahead of a sale. (And we ultimately purchased a property that was significantly nicer and included the "must haves.")PATIENT: Josh patiently and thoughtfully answers questions. He takes the time to eliminate uncertainty and thinks before he speaks. In addition, he is very thorough and always makes sure his buyers are well informed and have access to reliable lenders, attorneys and home inspectors.SMART: Josh has a unique perspective on the market and understands how individual properties fit into the broader market context. He has a knack for asking sellers the right questions which adds value to the home buying process.Great experience working with Josh Muncey!

          - SMART, PATIENT, HONEST
