Hey, I’m Josh... aka "Sold By Stokes"- born entrepreneur, down to earth bay boy & loving family guy! Life is busy- when I’m not at the office you’ll find me at the park, rink or in our driveway playing road hockey with my son & best buddy, Bennett. You might even catch me strumming a tune or two serenading my beautiful baby girl, Scarlett. Married to my ‘Bombshell’ wife Michelle, loving mother and a saint who keeps me on my toes- she may even do a social media post for me from time to time.
 
For a short period, before real-estate, our life brought us to Alberta. With a Petroleum Engineering background, I worked specifically as a field supervisor and quality control engineer. A team leader with a great eye for specifics and detail. After 3 years in the field, myself & my wife decided we needed a change. We needed the salt water, our family and our kids to grow up as true Newfies!
 
Shortly after moving, I completed my real-estate licence & the rest is history. I’ve earned “Top Producing Agent” on different levels - ranking in the Top 5% of all REALTORS in the province for 2018 (believe me, that didn’t come easy)! “Top” doesn’t mean you’ll find me drinking expensive champagne and driving luxury cars. I’m more of a dark beer - Rickards Red kinda guy and soon enough my wife will have me driving a minivan. “Top” comes from long hours, trial & error, brainstorming, meeting with mentors, taking every single piece of advice and knowledge anyone is willing to offer and lots of thinking outside the box!
 
I feel every deal is more then a transaction - my clients are now my "Sold By Stokes" family! From start to finish I want to make sure my clients have the best experience possible. Over the years, I’ve bought and sold numerous personal homes and I know how important a trusting client/REALTOR relationship truly is. So, whether you're selling, buying your first home, looking for resale, or to build your own home from the ground up, I’m here to work with you to find exactly what your looking for!
