I am Joshua T. Barrett, Investor, Entrepreneur, Dreamer, and Leader in real estate sales in Central Ky. 

I use advanced marketing techniques to help sellers sell homes faster and buyers find the property of their dreams. Remember, when they told you in school that business was all about networking? Well, they weren’t lying, and I take full advantage of that statement. I work the networks we have to find active buyers and active sellers, no sticking signs in your yard and praying someone else brings a buyer, I seek out the buyer. Often times turning transactions in a number of weeks, a majority of my listings are on the market for under 30 days! How is that for quick turn around time?

I understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience, its more than a house, its a HOME to grow, learn, rest, and enjoy. The MOST important investment in ones life. That’s why my team is dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service for all of our clients, we have the effective tools necessary to move you through the process of buying or selling with ease. I focus on the PLAN not the PROBLEM. 

Without a doubt I can tell you that I represent the best, the brightest, the hardest working, and I strive to lead the field in research, innovation, and consumer education. Today’s buyers and sellers need a trusted resource that can guide them through the complex world of real estate. My extensive knowledge and commitment to providing only the best and most timely information to my clients, I am your go-to source for real estate industry insight and advice.

Since 2012 we have continually set goals and doubled in business each year, in 2016 we closed over 45 homes and closed over 6 million in sales, in 2017 we again have set our goal to double that number and are on track to do so; in 2017 I was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year for the state of Kentucky, and ranked as #1 agent in the #1 office in Central KY. (Rankings as of June 2017 per MLS data) 

I would be honored to add you to our family of raving fans the next time you consider buying or selling real estate! I pledge to be in constant communication with you, my clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. Please, don’t judge by our winners, judge by our losers, because we have so few. I believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, I haven’t done my job.

I was born in Lexington, Kentucky and moved to California at a young age, growing up in the beautiful resort community of Indian Wells, famous for its fantastic weather, golf courses and tennis facilities. After graduating from high school, I returned to my roots and graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a BA in Public Relations. There, I met and married my husband, Brian, who is a native of Richmond, and we have been blessed with three lovely daughters. Besides dedication to family life, the last 15 years have also been spent working hand in hand with my husband- buying, selling and renovating residential and investment properties.

Real estate runs in the family, and I was fascinated by the profession at an early age. It’s a natural fit for me as I can apply my creativity, along with my organizational and tech-savvy skills, while helping my clients meet their goals. Client satisfaction is very important to me, as I work ethically, professionally and tirelessly toward a positive experience and outcome for both Buyers and Sellers.

For further information to assist you in the Sale or Purchase of your home, please call me. I look forward to working with you!

I was born and raised in a small town along the Eastern Kentucky corridor with dreams and ambitions that far extended the heights of those beautiful mountains. I am blessed as a family man with a lovely wife of 13 years and 3 children. I enjoy utilizing the gift of knowledge having received a B.S. in Physics, B.S. in Civil Engineering, M.S. in Civil Engineering, and currently pursuing an accounting certificate. I am licensed as a Professional Engineer in several states specializing in what is never seen as the end product but by far the most critical; foundation systems. I have owned and operated several companies in the past 20 years. Some of those companies consist of Roofing Construction, Residential Contracting, and more. I currently own several engineering firms that span from St. Louis, Missouri to Charleston, West Virginia with the common mission and vision statement of “Relationships Matter”. That mission and vision statement have allowed a 6 year old company to grow over 300% each year for the past 4 years in team members and revenue. One of the greatest enjoyments I have found is investment real estate with a current portfolio of over 20 units with a goal of 100+ in the next 5 years.

Whether you are a buyer, seller, an investor, or even a realtor, my experience, knowledge, and passion can provide a significant financial impact. A story was once told that Nikola Tesla visited Henry Ford at his factory, which was having some kind of difficulty. Ford asked Tesla if he could help identify the problem area. Tesla walked up to a wall of boilerplate and made a small X in chalk on one of the plates. Ford was thrilled, and told him to send an invoice. The bill arrived, for $10,000. Ford asked for a breakdown. Tesla sent another invoice, indicating a $1 charge for marking the wall with an X, and $9,999 for knowing where to put it.

Did you know that most homes built in central Kentucky in the 1970’s had a common theme of constructing basement walls that were unreinforced which has created a huge amount of revenue source to repair these walls now 30 to 40 years later? Did you know there are several repairs readily available at a financial cost that is considered reasonable? Did you know that the top three critical financial components that you could be faced with as a real estate owner are the roof, HVAC system and foundation system?

As your realtor or representative, I can utilize my extensive knowledge and expertise to go beyond your real estate needs and provide a professional structural/geotechnical engineering opinion/assessment, aid in providing qualified contractors for simple or complex issues, and most importantly, provide your real estate needs by utilizing “Relationships Matter”.
