RESIDENTIAL/LUXURY HOMES/LAND ASSEMBLIES
Ironically enough Josy D’Amico never sought out a career in real estate but after 11 years as a respected sales representative serving Hamilton and its surrounding areas; it is obvious that the right job found her! After being a business owner for over 10 years (operating the children’s clothing store Rodeo Kids) Josy had honed her business and people skills developing many relationships in the community.
“It was my brother (Domenic Albanese) who first saw that I had a talent for negotiation and this translated into a potential to do well in real estate. The rest as they say, is history!”
Josy understands the power of creative, well-organized, and highly effective marketing and offers customized marketing strategies that will maximize a property’s exposure to the most qualified buyer. With a fair yet aggressive negotiating style, Josy is known for “…trying absolutely anything and everything for the best price!”
“My fair yet aggressive negotiating style and protectiveness of my client’s best interest and ultimately, their assets, has gained me respect with colleagues and clients alike. I think it is my attention to detail, broad knowledge of the real estate industry as a whole and my pure determination to indulge my clients with ‘first class’ service that sets me apart.”
Josy and REALTORS® Of Where You Live!
After ten years as a full time, award winning Re/Max Del Mar Realtor, Josy decided to join forces and form The REALTORS® Of Where You Live. As a life-long resident of Hamilton, a mother of three and active in community, church and school-related activities, Josy knew she had the practical knowledge to do more than “just” help her clients find a house.
“For a while there I think people thought that REALTORS® were becoming an obsolete profession and I can understand why it would be easy to think that. When you have so many online resources like MLS available, you start questioning why you even need a REALTOR®. But while it’s easy to access information and listings, what is missing is the knowledge and experience to really evaluate the merits of a property in its entirety. These days, people want more than the perfect house, they also want the perfect neighbourhood and to know more about their community. I know about each area in and around Hamilton; what schools are like; what kind of commutes to expect and what amenities are available. This is really the kind of ‘insider information’ that I think helps clients make the most informed decision…a service that you can’t get from MLS alone.”
Looking to the Future
Josy is known for being very down to earth and has a reputation for being frank with her clients.
“Service is our number one priority. We really think it is important for our clients to feel like they can have an open relationship with us. They need to trust us and believe that based on our years of experience, our reputation for negotiation and finance and our abilities to market and close a deal, we can facilitate the best possible outcome.”
With their marketing savvy and business know-how, Josy and the REALTORS® Of Team really do have an invaluable combination of skills that make them stand apart from competitors. Josy’s focus and passion for marketing in particular has been an obvious advantage to clients.
“ Buyers and sellers want to get the most value for their dollar. You can’t just have an open house and think that’s all it takes to sell your house. It’s a competitive market and if you want to play the game and win, you need to know about staging, advertising and realistic market pricing. You would not believe how many thousands of dollars have been lost because the home owners didn’t understand their selection of paint colour was turning off buyers. That’s what I am here for. I will tell them point blank that the dark purple walls have got to go!”
“ At the end of the day, I really love what I do. I am passionate about being an advocate for my clients. I like meeting new people and think that it’s important to build relationships based on trust and respect. I can’t think of a better way than this to make a living…I get to help the people in my community find not just a house, but a home.”
