Josh Skroch, REALTOR®

Reviews | Write Review

I serve families in the Reno-Sparks area who want a REALTOR® who’s on their side and will fight for them. I help get you exactly what you want, which is the best price for the home you’re selling or the best value for the home you want.

I have 12 years of experience analyzing market conditions and trends, researching economic and environmental factors, and exploring non-traditional aspects which affect property values. In short, I’m a real estate nerd. I love all the ins and outs of buying and selling property. For your family that means I’m able to negotiate on your behalf with knowledgeable authority. I help you turn a stressful life event into an opportunity for your family. I’ve protected clients from lost revenue and taken on stubborn banks to get my clients the best price.

When I’m not protecting clients from lost revenue or taking on stubborn banks to get my clients the best price, you can find me playing my Strat in different venues or enjoying coffee at Blue Whale Coffee Co.
