Tell Us Your Story

LaFronda helped to ease my anxiety in this process.

She explained matters thoroughly and sold my home in a very short time. I highly recommend Team Ford. They are knowledgeable and have great expertise.

Sherry L

Was very patient with me.

This was my first house and I was ignorant of the entire process as well as most of the jargon associated with buying a house. He sat down with me to explain everything in detailed to make sure I was educated dusting the entire process. Made the process as easy as it could be and seamless. Definitely recommending using Josiah you will not be disappointed.

Markgeisha M.

This couple made our experience so awesome.

If we could, we would buy and sell a house with them once a month.

Rasheed R.

LaFronda was such a blessing during a very difficult move!

Her knowledge of the market and process of leasing was invaluable. She was truly a source of encouragement during this time, and I highly recommend her services. She is a very positive and knowledgeable realtor and very enjoyable to work with!

Peters Family

Excellent service.

Would definitely work with them again.

John M.

Working with Josiah Ford and JFI Real Estate was the best decision I could have made.

A little back story about my experience with him, I'm disabled and had a serious health scare during the selling process. Mr. Ford was more than accommodating and went well above and beyond his job description to make sure everything stayed on course. When I couldn't get to the property to meet with contractors for repairs he stepped up without hesitation to handle all of the dealings with them, and there were at least four contractor visits. He made sure that everything was priced correctly and that I wasn't paying more than I should. He was always a phone call, text or email away when I had questions which was often. He's very knowledgeable about the market and uses his experience to his client's benefit. He made what was a stressful time for me and my family less stressful because he's an amazing realtor. I plan to use him again in the future, and you really shouldn't look any further than Josiah Ford and the team at JFI for your home buying or selling needs. Thanks for everything Josiah.

Darius Gibson

Josiah was very accommodating and willing to work with our schedules to show us various properties.

He always kept us informed and ultimately helped us get into the rental property that we desired. He was always professional and upfront and honest with us about properties and details.

Summer S.

I would like to recognize Pete Mata for the professional, patience and guidance through the sale of our current home to acquiring the new purchase as well in 30 days.

Pete always answered, responded and updated us when needed. There wasn't a question asked that he didn't answer or provide an update on. We can say he knew, suggested and recommended everything accurately that we needed to do in a timely manner. He's was so friendly to the point where times we felt as if he was a friend because of the talks and conversation during the entire process. If you looking for a caring, respectful and honest Real Estate Agent he's your go to Man, you won't regret it. Thank You Mr. Mata for everything, the expertise and support we couldn't have found a better person to assist us in this process

Christina Babayeju

My fiance and I were in a 2 month crunch to find a house before we got married and Team Ford made it their top priority!

Anytime day or night we were able to contact them by phone, text, and email and we got immediate responses.We looked house we wanted to within an hour or less of contacting Team Ford or a time was scheduled as soon as possible. Many times we were the first to see a house as soon as it was put on market. I would even get text on homes that they knew I would want to see before I ever got to my email to see newly listed houses. They are very proactive! Homes were going so quickly that Team Ford had a contract ready to go when we found a house we loved and we put the contract in before ever leaving the house! Team Ford really took interest in finding us a home and not a house. They pointed out any potential problems, were great negotiators, and explained every step of buying a home to us. It is obvious they care about their customers and their concerns when buying a house. Team Ford does not try to sell houses they specialize in finding a place to call home :) In the end, my fiance and I decided we wanted to rent for a the first year because we were about to have our wedding and start back to work. Team Ford didn't skip a beat and still made us a priority. They showed us every rent house we wanted to see and in less than a week of looking and negotiate prices down, we have keys to our very first HOME!! My fiance and I can't wait to begin our future together and can't explain how happy we are with our final choice :) Team Ford is still helping us in our journey to purchase a home by sending us information on programs that will help us with down payments and closing costs. We are so blessed to have met them and we know that we will find the house of our dreams to purchase in the near future! For now, thank you Team Ford for helping us learn so much about buying a home, putting us first, and giving us everything we asked for! If you want a realtor you can trust to have you best interest at heart, give Team Ford a call :) They also helped me with information on wedding stuff since I was not from the area which helped me not lose my mind as a bride who had about 2 months to get everything planned :) Great people!

We randomly found Josiah on an internet search while looking for our forever home in Mc Kinney.

He listened to what we wanted and found us the perfect home for our cross country move to Texas. I would highly recommend Josiah for your real estate needs. We went back to California to sell our home and he was very involved in communication all throughout the sale of our home there and our purchase here.

Mary Waterman

It has been a long time since we have looked for a new house so we didn't know what to expect but Josiah made the whole process easy.

He was really great to work with!

Kendra Gravley

This was my second time using Josiah's services in the selling of my townhome and he Delivered again!

In this tricky market, he was still able to position our home so that we maximized our value in no time at all.

Kay Bee

Josiah was an Amazing realtor who LITERALLY went to bat for us.

This market is brutal but he guided my husband and I thought the process of finding our home in a way that blew our minds and made an impression in our lives. We look forward to doing more business with him again! 😊

Arlette Kitenge

He's not just an amazing realtor, he's an amazing person.

Did all the heavy lifting to make the home buying process smooth. Definitely would work with again.

Tremayne M.

Josiah had great communication throughout the home buying process.

He provided insights on what to look for and the condition of properties. His expertise helped me to find a great home and I would highly recommend him.

Jon Altria


Team Ford is a direct reflection of their name...TEAM! Our home buying journey was nothing shy of "unique" or in other words an uninvited "headache". We were sure no other buyer was dealing with what we did with financing. Team Ford walked with us, "carried us", and taught us throughout the entire process. I know very little about today's Real Estate. Team Ford made sure we did, in "common folk lingo". They were patient and encouraged us not to make rushed decisions while searching for our home.Guided with their expertise while catering to our needs, we found our desired home! My hubby got what he wanted, the children are pleased and so am I! They truly have servant hearts and take pride in their work. What we found to be awesome was that they were there by our side at the closing table...Simply amazing! With Team Ford, it's much more than buying and/or selling property, it's an impressionable experience!

Veronica S.

Josiah is young energetic responsive in one word awesome agent to work with.

He has good knowledge on market and great negotiation skill. He follows with both parties and response on time. I wish him all the very best!

Anowarul Azim

Josiah has been awesome!

He's helped my family and I transition to Texas with finding our first lease and also with our first build out. Probably wouldn't have been as easy without him! Highly professional, patient, and tenacious. He will be my realtor for life!

Chaz O.

Josiah Ford is a very nice and patient person first and foremost which is sometimes hard to find.

He is very professional and keeps his word. He worked very hard for us and we will use him again and refer him to friends and family. We love our new home.

Neva J.

Josiah and LaFronda do the upfront research and forward planning needed that the average buyer or seller would not consider.

Their consistent follow-up and customer service is unparalleled!

Murphy C.

I highly recommend Mr Ford.

He was very patient, knowledgeable, and knows how to negotiate a great deal. He made my first time home buying process very stress free!!

Jocelyn H.

Ford team was very professional and passionate about helping a home buyer get the best for their clients and family, I would most definitely recommend them

Karen Odom

Working with Josiah Ford was fantastic.

He called me, when I asked for information on a house.. The one I asked about was no longer available, so we discussed what I was looking for, and within a few hours, we were looking at homes. It took only a few days to find the one I wanted, and one week to put in our application, and get our approval... I would recommend anyone, looking for a home, to use Josiah.

Karla D.

Fantastic experience working with Josiah.

He helped us purchase a home, and navigate through the process remotely. We were in town for a short period and were able to narrow down what we wanted to see.. Josiah came back and helped us broaden our search, and help us realize the potential of different areas. He knows the real estate landscape well, and does his research, it shows!!! Highly recommend him, and the team supporting him. lose the sports coat :)

Jignesh Patel

Josiah is a great professional: thorough, patient, and knowledgeable to say the least.

I look forward to a continuing relationship for all my future home buying and selling needs.

Garland Joseph

I was very pleased with Josiah in helping me find my home.

He asked questions in which I did not think to do so. He followed up with me during the process of my home being built. I appreciate the great customer service and professionalism of Josiah. I would definitely use him again.

LeRon T.


From the beginning I felt like I could trust Josiah and my confidence never wavered. He never gave me a reason to doubt him. He is professional and anticipated our needs. We had a contract to buy a house he showed us; however, the property did not appraise. We were protected by the appraisal clause that he insisted we include in our contract. His extensive industry and market knowledge guided us and helped us avoid pitfalls in this competitive market. Even when our plans changed he was responsive and adapted quickly. We decided to rent after our contract fell through and within a week he helped us find a great house in the area we wanted to live in with a great elementary school. When we are in the market to buy again we will definitely use him. I recommend him without reservation.

Albert B.

I was introduced to Josiah due to issue with a previous real estate agent, and from the very first time I called him I was surprised at all the information that he provided in just 1 phone call as opposed to other agent.

Through out the entire process he was very diligent, not just pushing me towards the properties but providing pros and cons regarding the house, the neighborhood, possible future value based on history, his opinion if asked, etc. I was very comfortable with coming to him for questions no matter how silly to appeared to me, and he always had an answer or got back to me with one. All in all, I had a great experience, he provided value not seen anymore today.

Bisi Osho

Team Ford are the type of people that make you want to buy and sell your house once a week!

As crazy as that sounds, it is the truth! They are more than realtors, they are great people who care more about your piece of mind!

Rasheed R.

Very helpful, answered all our questions and some I wouldn't have thought to ask.

Normand O.

Awesome Realtor!

My wife and I were first time homebuyers and we had a wonderful experience working with Josiah. He is very patient (because my wife and I was very particular on the home we wanted) and knowledgeable of the current market. Josiah was able to accommodate my work schedule and went above and beyond to provide us with great service. I highly recommend JFI

Reggie Sylve

There are so many great things I can say about Team Ford but I will try to keep it brief.

In sum this team did an outstanding job from start to finish. They not only sold our home in less than twelve hours but they also located the "perfect" new home for us. In the beginning Lafronda listened to every detail on our wish list and was able to accomodate all of our wants within our budget. Both she and Josiah were very strategic in the negoiating phase as well. They work very hard for their clients to ensure they have provided the best service. Without hesitation we would hands down recommend Team Ford to others for any real estate needs.

Laticia M.

JFI are the best in Real Estate!

Wenselar Booker

Before we got in contact with Josiah, finding a home was not happening.

We got little responses and contacts on our own. It was a stressful process and nothing to show for it. Once we contacted Josiah he made a commitment to help our family find a home. He communicated, contacted and had everything set up for us. Josiah delivered and kept his word! It made our move for our family a blessing. We are so happy with our home.

Karla F.

This is my second time doing business with JFI.

They are very professional and attentive to their clients needs. I would suggest anyone looking for a realtor to check them out!

Antario Trotter

After searching for houses on my own for about two months I ran into MANY scams.

I finally got in touch with a lady who worked for Keller Williams and she recommended Josiah. From the first phone call, to the signing of our lease, he was always quick to respond, never put any pressure on us and came prepared for each showing. I would recommend Josiah to any of friends or family, and will continue to use him in the future. Thank you Josiah!

Kim L.

Excellent service.

Josiah was amazing to work with. He was very patient, very attentive to our needs, honest, and very trustworthy. My husband and I are very lucky to have found and worked with him. I highly recommend him to anyone that's looking to purchase a home

Senait M.

I really enjoyed working with Josiah.

It is hard to find good, honest, and reliable agents these days. He used all of his resources, and provided me and my family with all the tools that we needed in order to negotiate and get things done. He not only worked during business hours but he worked after hours and holidays. Not being from the DeSoto area, he made it his business to get familiar with the area, and locate several houses to view. Once I am ready to actually purchase a home....he will be my first call. Josiah thank you for all of your hard work during and after the process of getting into our home! We will be in contact soon!

Franisha F

Josiah was very helpful and patient during the process of helping me find the perfect house to make my home.

He is very knowledgeable and detail oriented.

Kendra Beck

I’ve used Josiah ever since relocating to Dallas area with the purchasing our home and now selling the same place he helped purchasing.

Josiah helped tremendously educating us the Dallas market 4 years ago with patience and his eagerness to meet us at any place we want to view a house. That was Great when your realtor levels with your drive/energy!!! Now, we are absolutely happy with the sale of our home getting us the highest price possible (beyond the expected price) by marketing it with in a best possible accommodations with current safety requirements. WE are very much excited working with Josiah to find the next dream!! I recommend Josiah and his team for anyone who need a realtor who listens and who has the drive to get it done for you! No Brainer!!! Adding to above comment, once again, Josiah and his team came through for us in purchasing and closing our new home 2 days ago. I’m ECSTATIC!! For me, the strategy was to wait a year after Selling our home b/c of current crazy market where houses are scarce AND the ones for sale are gone at a ridiculous price, and I know it!! But Josiah was adamant and advised from different angles and perspective both family and finance the focus target it made sense to stay in the market and hunt the home we require. We have a very specific need and that was Great neighborhood and Great place Schools for our boys, so with the help of Josiah and his negotiating ability/agility we found our next home not long after Selling our home. This was Amazing to me, but I shouldn’t have been too surprised with Josiah’s abilities, assessing our situations, his flexibility, his negotiation and power moves when needed is his craft to get me to the next house. Dealing directly with Broker/Realtor like Josiah has been working out for me like a dream. We are Exactly where I wanted our Family is right now b/c with the HUGE help for Josiah and his Team. Thank You, Josiah!!! This is going to be more…. and my Broker/Realtor is going to be Josiah. Let’s Go!
