  • Rebecca Straley

    After decades of experience in real estate, development, appraisals, and auctioneers... I am not easily impressed. However, Josh Harley got my attention before I even knew he was a competitor and a leader and now a partner! His cartoons caught my attention, then his technology, then his vision for our industry hooked me - as the truth! Once I realized he understood the future of our industry I could not walk away. I am an experienced broker unusually embracing our changing industry. Josh and all the Fathom Realty team have the desire to lead our industry because it is a labor of love. When you understand your business is your mission - when you understand you serve a higher power for a greater good - when you see with your own eyes that leadership is focused on the need of the public - then it is easy to join - easy to be accepted and provides the appreciation we seek as professionals!

  • James Hurt

    Josh Harley is most inspirational person I have ever worked for. He never managed me, instead he helped me discover the correct path. He was always ready with positive reinforcement and support. Josh made sure that I accomplished my personal goals and gave me a nudge when I needed it. In addition Josh is an excellent teacher, he never made me feel inferior. His knowledge of marketing and technology is second to none. However the most important compliment I can pay Josh is he has the highest integrity of anyone I have ever known.
