Real Estate Consultant
Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty
Here is Josh Lipton’s recipe for success: Take a financial analyst, give him underwriting experience with a commercial real estate private equity fund, add a law degree and mix in real estate capital markets experience. What do you get? A Top 15 agent within Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty. “Real estate allows me to leverage my professional experience with my innate skills and passion by thinking outside the box to uncover value for buyers and deliver top dollar for sellers,” he says.
For Lipton, it’s all about differentiating himself while providing a comprehensive, white glove level of service. “Any Realtor can simply open a door for a buyer, or list a home and wait for the phone to ring. It’s all about taking the initiative to go above and beyond the normal call of duty expected, by doing the little things not ordinarily expected from your agent. Those are the things that stand out and leave a lasting impression with clients.” The numbers prove his point. Lipton has managed to consistently grow his business year-over-year by more than 200 percent, entirely by way of referrals and repeat clients. This made him a Top Producer in 2015 and 2016, as recognized by the Chicago Association of Realtors.
“My clients appreciate my candor, authenticity, efficiency and attention to detail,” he says. Lipton takes the time to conscientiously listen, understand buyers and sellers needs, objectives and lifestyle, and offer a “concierge level of service” from the moment they meet until closing, and well beyond.
“To some, buying or selling a home can be an overwhelming and stressful process,” Lipton says, “but most — if not all — of my clients will attest that I make it an enjoyable and memorable experience.” Lipton’s clients include first-time and repeat buyers and sellers, investors, developers, relocations and professional athletes that rely on his insight and expertise to navigate the many evolving and diverse neighborhoods Chicago has to offer.
Of all the deals Lipton has closed, he says there is one that stands out above all others that has made 2017 his best year yet: it closed on March 11, 2017, when he married his best friend, Jordyn.
