He is very patient (because my wife and I was very particular on the home we wanted) and knowledgeable of the current market. Josiah was able to accommodate my work schedule and went above and beyond to provide us with great service. I highly recommend JFI

                      • As a first time home buyer, I was completely clueless about the process. Josiah was so patient and informative. He walked with me through the whole process. He is the absolute best when it comes to advocating for his clients. He has also helped several of my friends purchase homes. I will mostly definitely use his service again when I decide to make my next purchase.

                        - Jon H. McKinney, TX
                      • Working with Josiah Ford was fantastic. He called me, when I asked for information on a house.. The one I asked about was no longer available, so we discussed what I was looking for, and within a few hours, we were looking at homes. It took only a few days to find the one I wanted, and one week to put in our application, and get our approval... I would recommend anyone, looking for a home, to use Josiah.

                        - Mr. Gooden, Aubrey, TX
                      • Josiah was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process of finding a home. He knew what to look for when showing the home and even offered numerous tips in order to retain the security deposit. His understanding of the real estate market was invaluable with regards to setting realistic expectations and finding the best deal. I highly recommend Josiah and I will be seeking his services for future home purchases.

                        - Kristina S., Grapevine, TX
                      • Wow!Team Ford is a direct reflection of their name...TEAM!Our home buying journey was nothing shy of "unique" or in other words an uninvited "headache". We were sure no other buyer was dealing with what we did with financing. Team Ford walked with us, "carried us", and taught us throughout the entire process. I know very little about today's Real Estate. Team Ford made sure we did, in "common folk lingo". They were patient and encouraged us not to make rushed decisions while searching for our home.Guided with their expertise while catering to our needs, we found our desired home! My hubby got what he wanted, the children are pleased and so am I!They truly have servant hearts and take pride in their work.What we found to be awesome was that they were there by our side at the closing table...Simply amazing!With Team Ford, it's much more than buying and/or selling property, it's an impressionable experience!

                        - Veronica S., Frisco, TX
                      • My fiance and I were in a 2 month crunch to find a house before we got married and Team Ford made it their top priority! Anytime day or night we were able to contact them by phone, text, and email and we got immediate responses.We looked house we wanted to within an hour or less of contacting Team Ford or a time was scheduled as soon as possible. Many times we were the first to see a house as soon as it was put on market. I would even get text on homes that they knew I would want to see before I ever got to my email to see newly listed houses. They are very proactive! Homes were going so quickly that Team Ford had a contract ready to go when we found a house we loved and we put the contract in before ever leaving the house! Team Ford really took interest in finding us a home and not a house. They pointed out any potential problems, were great negotiators, and explained every step of buying a home to us. It is obvious they care about their customers and their concerns when buying a house. Team Ford does not try to sell houses they specialize in finding a place to call home :) In the end, my fiance and I decided we wanted to rent for a the first year because we were about to have our wedding and start back to work. Team Ford didn't skip a beat and still made us a priority. They showed us every rent house we wanted to see and in less than a week of looking and negotiate prices down, we have keys to our very first HOME!! My fiance and I can't wait to begin our future together and can't explain how happy we are with our final choice :) Team Ford is still helping us in our journey to purchase a home by sending us information on programs that will help us with down payments and closing costs. We are so blessed to have met them and we know that we will find the house of our dreams to purchase in the near future! For now, thank you Team Ford for helping us learn so much about buying a home, putting us first, and giving us everything we asked for! If you want a realtor you can trust to have you best interest at heart, give Team Ford a call :)<br/><br/>They also helped me with information on wedding stuff since I was not from the area which helped me not lose my mind as a bride who had about 2 months to get everything planned :) Great people!

                        - Chani W. , The Colony, TX
                      • LaFronda was such a blessing during a very difficult move! Her knowledge of the market and process of leasing was invaluable. She was truly a source of encouragement during this time, and I highly recommend her services. She is a very positive and knowledgeable realtor and very enjoyable to work with!

                        - Mr. Peters, Fort Worth, TX
                      • Josiah Ford is a very nice and patient person first and foremost which is sometimes hard to find. He is very professional and keeps his word. He worked very hard for us and we will use him again and refer him to friends and family. We love our new home.

                        - Neva J., Arlington, TX
                      • There are so many great things I can say about Team Ford but I will try to keep it brief. In sum this team did an outstanding job from start to finish. They not only sold our home in less than twelve hours but they also located the "perfect" new home for us. In the beginning Lafronda listened to every detail on our wish list and was able to accomodate all of our wants within our budget. Both she and Josiah were very strategic in the negoiating phase as well. They work very hard for their clients to ensure they have provided the best service. Without hesitation we would hands down recommend Team Ford to others for any real estate needs.

                        - L. Mcmurray, Denton, TX
                      • I really enjoyed working with Josiah. It is hard to find good, honest, and reliable agents these days. He used all of his resources, and provided me and my family with all the tools that we needed in order to negotiate and get things done. He not only worked during business hours but he worked after hours and holidays. Not being from the DeSoto area, he made it his business to get familiar with the area, and locate several houses to view. Once I am ready to actually purchase a home....he will be my first call. Josiah thank you for all of your hard work during and after the process of getting into our home! We will be in contact soon!

                        - Franisha, Desoto, TX
                      • Rain , shine or snow, team ford was on search with us. We were able to find the right place for us in just three weeks after we meet Josiah . I will surely recommend team ford to all my friends.

                        - Merva L, Plano, TX
                      • Team Ford has been wonderful to our family. Ms. LaFronda, our agent has been so kind and patient!! Our family recommend her and Mr. Ford totally for their efficiency, willingness to get things done beyond expectations!!! We really want to thank team Ford for making our dream come true!!! God bless you always and keep the good work!!! The Ordonez Family

                        - Norman O, Plano, TX
                      • Excellent! From the beginning I felt like I could trust Josiah and my confidence never wavered. He never gave me a reason to doubt him. He is professional and anticipated our needs. We had a contract to buy a house he showed us; however, the property did not appraise. We were protected by the appraisal clause that he insisted we include in our contract. His extensive industry and market knowledge guided us and helped us avoid pitfalls in this competitive market. Even when our plans changed he was responsive and adapted quickly. We decided to rent after our contract fell through and within a week he helped us find a great house in the area we wanted to live in with a great elementary school. When we are in the market to buy again we will definitely use him. I recommend him without reservation.

                        - Albert B., Plano, TX
                      • Team Ford are the type of people that make you want to buy and sell your house once a week! As crazy as that sounds, it is the truth! They are more than realtors, they are great people who care more about your piece of mind!

                        - Rasheed R. Carrollton, TX
                      • Josiah is an extremely professional, knowledgeable and caring realtor. He worked tenaciously to help us find the right home for our family. He gave us excellent guidance and helped us to negotiate to purchase our home in a very competitive market. He's very honest and provides perspective to consider when making a big decision. I highly recommend working with Josiah and his team!

                      • LaFronda is awesome. She completely looks out for what's best for her clients and I really appreciate her honesty during the buying process!Josiah is the epiphany of professionalism. He's hard working and is amazingly talented. He will do what it takes to get your property sold and find you a new place to live.

                        - Christina L. Frisco, TX
                      • Josiah was great to work with. He was attentive to all my requests/needs and always available to answer any questions I had. He is very knowledgeable of not only the areas but also the market which helped us find a property in a few days and close in a little over a month. Thank you Josiah! Look forward to working with you more.

                      • I highly recommend Josiah, he is very honest, kind, hard working, he listens to his clients needs and make a point to make sure he delivers exactly what you are looking for. He is one of a kind and we are truly blessed and happy to have work with him. We look forward to working with him more and refer him to more clients.

                        - Merry M, Irving, TX
                      • Josiah was so great to work with. He helped us look through many homes and gave meaningful and important insights to look for in a home and kept us all up-to-date on the application status, documents, etc. I enjoyed working with him and will consider him the next time I'm in the market for a new home in DFW.

                        - Merry, Plano, TX
                      • Josiah really appreciate your patience. So glad I had the opportunity of working with you on this exciting journey. I now have a home. Thank you again. And blessing to you and your family.

                      • Our dreams came true with Team Ford! They treat you like family and give exceptional customer service. Best buying experience ever with them. Thank You Team Ford

                        - Cristi Jones, Red Oak, TX
                      • Josiah was true to his word of helping us find a home. He was thorough, interested in what made sense for our family, professional, responsible, reliable, and knowledgeable. During the house hunting process, we ran into a few roadblocks but with Josiah's help, those roadblocks turned into windows of opportunity for a better home (location and price) for our family. Since we are newcomers to the area, Josiah shared his expertise with services that we needed outside of buying a home. We cannot thank Josiah and Team Ford Realtors enough for their service and care!

                        - Anthony Calhoun, Frisco, TX
                      • Josiah was a dream. He was so knowledgeable of the market and always had amazing advice when needing to make decisions. I was a first time home buyer and he couldnt have made it an easier or seamless process of which normally can be very daunting and stressful. His wife Lafronda even stepped in and showed me a home in the pouring rain when Josiah had a prior commitment because we knew we had a deadline. They are truly the dream team and I couldnt be happier with my purchase or the process. I would recommend them to everyone for many of their real estate needs.
