    Becoming a first-time home buyer or landlord is scary, time-consuming, and at times – overwhelming. Joshua Poitras understands all of this. Through trial and error, from a bachelor's degree to military experience, to the genuine trait of wanting to help people – Joshua is ready to help you get off on the right track and set your mind at ease. 
    Born and raised in Lowell, Massachusetts, having lived in both Malden and Boston, and frequently doing business in Somerville and Cambridge, Josh is the perfect fit for these areas. He looks forward to helping these areas grow and develop into the future, especially that of East Boston.  
    Josh put himself through the University of  Massachusetts Lowell Criminal Justice Bachelor's Program by joining the Massachusetts's National Guard. After ten years of service, including two one-year long deployments, Josh returned home and earned his second degree in Fire Science at Bunker Hill Community College. 
    After experiencing some of the toughest military schools and serving as Middlesex Deputy Sheriff for two years, Josh has realized that nothing brings him quite as much joy as real estate. His love for real estate started after his first deployment, when he bought his first home at the top of the real estate boom in 2006-2007. Much to his dismay, his first buy resulted in a forced short sale due to unforeseen circumstances. Thus, he was forced to recoup his losses.  Josh then decided to go for his second deployment; Where he recovered from financial turmoil and returned to the States to purchase his first multi-family home. He now lives without financial burdens, which he owes to the lessons he has learned from his real estate background. 
    With education, first-hand knowledge, and dedication, Joshua is determined to help first-time buyers and first-time landlords ease into their first property purchases and start them off on the right foot.

Bought a home in 2014.

After searching for a house for a number of weeks, with no luck, I found Josh on Zillow. I contacted a number of realtors, and right from the start he stood out. He was very knowledgeable and approachable. He answered any questions I had, and they were a lot. He knew so much about the different markets in Boston that his expertise made the home buying process seem much more manageable.

Mostly, I appreciate that he made me feel like he was on my side and was actually working to help me find a home that was right for me, not just one that would make him the most money. From the initial showings right up to when I finally found the perfect house, he was right there helping me along the way.

I definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or rent within the Greater Boston area!

Showed home in 2013 in Dorchester, Boston, MA.

A few months ago I started a crazy search to buy a condo. I didn't have any specific area of Boston picked out and I had a lot of needs and wants that were nearly impossible to find in my price range. I found Mr. Poitras on Zillow,I was apprehensive using a realtor whom I wasn't referred to but to my surprise he was very informative with my search helping me narrow down a location and even helping me with financing and opening my eyes to things in a home that buyers need to be cautious of such as " hot water tank" ext. As first time buyer this was very important to me, knowing that I could trust my realtor to help me with the buying process and its entirety . I was very pleased with all of his help he went above and beyond!!! On top of his expertise on the whole city of Boston properties he was professional,timely, flexible, and HONEST. I would reccomend Mr. Poitras to anyone with any needs a realtor he knows this business inside and out!  More Less

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Malden, MA.

Josh was very helpful in getting the right condo for us in Malden, Massachusetts. We bought the condo in June of 2014. We had very specific requirements which made the search quite time consuming, but Josh worked with us all the way, putting in a lot of effort and patience. He efficiently guided us through the whole process and it was a very pleasing experience and culminated with Josh actually moving our furniture with his pickup truck from our old apartment to our lovely new home. We would highly recommend him.  More Less
