Joshua Karchem

LIC RE Salesperson

I specialize in Brooklyn and I also work extensively in Upper Manhattan. I handle listings and I often work with investors and repeat buyers, but the most rewarding part of my job is helping people secure their first home. Buyers need all the support they can get in this market. I assist my clients through every stage of the purchasing process. Everyone deserves to feel genuinely excited about taking the next big step in their lives and I get immense satisfaction from helping people find that for themselves!

We all know that real estate agents sometimes get a bad rap. So when I finally encountered one who was unreservedly honest and straightforward that positive shock inspired me to enter the field.

Bought a Cooperative home in 2016 in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY.

Joshua came highly recommended by a friend and I knew why immediately. He was very responsive to my questions and requests and good at weeding out unrealistic options, which saved me a lot of time. I was a first-time buyer, had lots of questions, and warned him I would likely micromanage the entire process. He wasn''t at all put off or concerned about dealing with an admittedly high-strung buyer. He was always, calm, friendly and professional and was very willing to educate me throughout my search and purchase. He is a pro at putting together co-op applications and will be by you every step of the process. Whether you''re brand new to this process or an experienced buyer, I think you''ll appreciate the positivity and steadying presence Joshua brings to the table.

Bought a Cooperative home in 2017 in Kensington, Brooklyn, NY.

My wife and I came across Joshua completely by chance when we started looking for apartments in Brooklyn. When we first met, we found his demeanor fantastic without even he faintest hint of the pushiness I have heard stories about from other real estate agents. He was patient and willing to take the time to look for the best apartment for us. We could not have been happier with our time working with him.

He was knowledgeable and supremely responsive to our questions and occasional panicked weekend phone calls. We had a kind of hellish experience with our bank, but we pretty much made it through without totally freaking out because of Josh. We cannot recommend him more strongly!

Joshua Karchem worked with us to find and purchase a coop in Brooklyn. He answered our many questions honestly, accurately and quickly. We told him what we were looking for; he only showed us properties that met our criteria. Once we found a coop, he helped us in a competative bidding process, never pushing, just giving us info about his experience. When our bid was accepted, Joshua worked, step by step, with us to get all paperwork collected. He made sure all the details were included. On closing day, he was at the walk through and closing. He worked hard throughout the process. We were very satisfied with his professionalism. Joshua was present and active every step of the way. We highly recommend him.

Josh helped my girlfriend and I buy our first place. He''s a super friendly guy and we immediately felt comfortable with him. On several occasions he met us in various neighborhoods around Brooklyn to attend open houses, gave us advice along the way, and then when we finally found a place he assisted with the entire process – from making the offer through closing. He took care of so much of the paperwork and communication between lawyers and the coop board, I can''t imagine having done it all without him.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2017 in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn, NY.

Josh was masterful in his determination of a proper offering price, and thanks to him we ended up acquiring our home at far less than asking. Josh had deep local knowledge of the neighborhood, and quickly understood what it was we were looking for and what we weren't interested in. His low-key demeanor is a pleasant change from many other real estate professionals we have encountered.

Bought a home in 2017 in Borough Park, Brooklyn, New York, NY 11218.

After looking around at a number of different areas in Brooklyn and having a few less than stellar interactions with real estate agents and lenders, we got in contact with Josh through Zillow. He really helped make what could be a daunting process as smooth and efficient as it could be. He guided us through the entire process, from getting us referrals for lenders to finding great representation for our purchase of a COOP in Brooklyn. He really knows the area, process, and how to help to get your deal done! Can''t recommend him enough!!

Josh was amazingly easy to work with. He answered his phone whenever we called and was able to put my mind at ease during the home buying process. We bought a one bedroom that Josh found for us in Kensington, Brooklyn and are loving it. Would highly recommend him for anyone, especially in the Brooklyn area!
