Thinking of Buying Real Estate in Wisconsin?

Whether you are a first time home buyer, or you've been through this before, I'm the agent you need.

The Madison metro area is a GREAT place to buy a home. Consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the Midwest, Madison offers affordable housing, numerous amenities, and a small town feel. 

The surrounding cities of Madison are all great places to live as well.  Places like Waunakee, Deforest, Cottage Grove, Sun Prairie, Fitchburg, and Verona have seen some of the highest population growth in the last 10 years. In fact, 6 of the top 10 most moved to places in Wisconsin are cities in the Madison Metro Area.

Let me help you in purchasing your home in Wisconsin.

My Homebuying Process

Buyer Consultation

It is best for us to get together to meet and learn more about your wants and needs in your next home. This can be done either over the phone or in person. This is a great way to learn more about the market as a whole, and for us to get to know each other, and to start to build a relationship.

Obtain Preapproval/Proof of Funds

This is the most important step. If you plan on obtaining financing to purchase your home, you will need to obtain a preapproval letter from a financial institution prior to us seeing any homes in person. If you are a cash buyer, you will need to obtain a proper proof of funds letter from your bank.


We can now go and view homes you like!

Write an Offer

Once you have found a home you like, we will work together in drafting an offer that you are comfortable with. I will offer advice, but I will never force you into making an uncomfortable decision.

Work Through Contingencies

After your offer is accepted, we will work through any and all contingencies. This can include things such as your home inspection, loan commitment, and appraisal contingencies. This will last anywhere from 14-60 days depending on your offer.


Congratulations! You are officially the homeowner. Welcome to your new home!

No Obligation

This will depend on how much you are looking to spend on a home, your desired monthly payments, your desired down payment, and numerous other factors. According to the National Association of REALTORS®, the average down payment for first time home buyers was 7%, while those purchasing their second or third home was 17%. 

On top of your down payment, you will want to set aside some money for closing costs, tests/inspections, and any updates you may plan on doing as soon as you move into your new home.

What My Clients Have to Say

What my previous clients have to say about me

Josh did a FABULOUS job of making sure I was getting a great house and helping me look for things and giving me his honest opinion when looking at houses. Being a first time home buyer and doing this all on my own, he did a great job and I trusted him 100% in helping me and seeing things I didn’t even know to look for! He made me feel very comfortable and was always a text or call away. Very efficient and a genuine, kind individual. I wouldn’t have wanted my first time buying a home to be with anybody else!
by Taylor Jaeger
We absolutely loved working with Josh when it came to finding our home. He always communicated effectively with us no matter what time. We had many random questions since we were first time home buyers and he always answered them without batting an eye. He was honest with all the homes we asked to see and when we asked, gave his honest opinion. It was refreshing. Rather than trying to shove homes down our throat, he let us feel it out and didn’t make us feel bad about not wanting a particular home. He stayed very hopeful even when we had our doubts about finding a home fit for us, but low and behold, after what felt like a 1000 showings, we found our home with everything we wanted. His patience is a godsend. He even gave us a cute little gift when we signed. I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. I recommend him 10 times over any other realtor.

We moved to Madison from out of state and Josh was recommended to us. He took the time to talk with us about what we were looking for and did a lot of research before we met with him. He was prepared and helped us look at a bunch of properties, finding the right house for us on the first day. He is conscientious and continued to follow up throughout the process to make sure everything was moving forward. We really enjoyed working with Josh and highly recommend him.

We appreciate how you how you helped us clarify exactly what we wanted, and then how hard you worked to help us find the perfect place. You will be our first call the next time we have a real estate need!

I had the pleasure of working with Josh Brost to sell my dad's house. Josh was very respectful when working with my dad and me. Josh took time to review, explain, and guide us through the process from start to finish. He was always available to answer questions and concerns. He kept us informed every step of the way. His knowledge and communication skills were apparent from the first meeting. Dad's house sold quickly and closing went off without a hitch. I would definitely recommend Josh Brost. Thanks Josh!

Josh is a wonderful realtor! He was attentive, communicative, and knowledgeable. He is also just an all around great guy! We would definitely work with him again and will refer our friends and family his way. We had an A+ experience.

Josh is an amazing person and an incredibly talented realtor. From the very beginning through closing, he was a consummate professional. His efforts brought multiple offers within days of being listed. And all of the offers were over asking price. I would recommend Josh to EVERYONE looking to buy or sell a home.

Josh did an amazing job helping us buy our first home! He was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and communicative throughout the entire process. He took the time to walk us through each part of the process so we were entirely confident in our decisions. I highly recommend Josh to anyone looking to buy a home!!
by Lauren Pericak & Abby Williamson
I think my favorite quality about Josh which helped immensely in finding a place was how communicative he is. If you have questions about anything he will respond asap with either the answer or that he will find out the answer. He was always on top of new properties to show me that fit what I was looking for. Additionally, he was on time to showings, extremely knowledgeable (which was great for me as a first time home buyer), honest, and went above and beyond! He will take the time to walk you through things you don’t understand which is much appreciated. A million thank you’s!!!
