Tell Us Your Story

We needed to sell my Mom's home in Norwalk that she lived in since about 1963.

And we needed to sell quickly to help pay for Mom's Long Term Care. Not knowing what realtor or company to choose, I went on the internet and selected Josie Andrade with Berkshire Home in Norwalk. It must have been my lucky day. Upon meeting Josie, I found her to be very knowledgeable, very gracious, easy to talk to; and above all she was very patient with the many questions I asked. I couldn't have found a better person to assist in selling my Mom's home. The first Open House landed us with the Buyer for Mom's home. I really appreciated the way Josie kept me up to date throughout the process. If anyone is looking to sell or buy a home, I would highly recommend Josie. She made the experience for us easy and pleasant with her expert guidance. Her staff in the office Sandra and Melody also were great, and very helpful.

If there were 10 stars I'd give them all to Josie, Rene and the entire team!

! If you've tirelessly looked for a true, talented team of realtors and have been turned away with no hopes or a crushed dream- look no further because this team was genuinely a stellar above and beyond team who really do make dreams come true. My mother spent 10 years dreaming of being a home owner, recycled through 8 realtors, went through numerous applications, loans and documents only to be rejected or ghosted. With the help of Josie, Rene and their service- they were able to seamlessly provide an opportunity and we became successful first time home owners. I cannot recommend them enough- they connect with their clients, they follow up, give clear direction to what is needed, provide support every step of the way and encourage you to positively look forward to a home you've always dreamed of! This is the dream team, no matter how small, how big your goals are- they make it possible. We are at tears in our new home and will forever undoubtedly remember Josie, Rene, Dora, Sandra and the entire staff. It has been truly a wonderful Christmas miracle!

I first heard about First Team Real Estate from my sister who bought a home in Signal Hill, Ca.

She mentioned she worked with a Realtor from First Team and had a good experience. So I was referred to Priscilla Marquez. I must say, my experience with a First Team Realtor was incredible. She had the answers to all my questions and made things easy and clear for me to understand since I was/am a First Time buyer. When I met Priscilla, she referred to her self as the 3 "R's"... Reliable, Responsible and Respectful. And the great thing about that is, she is true to her reference. Thank you for making my buying experience a smooth one. Hope to do business again soon!

David Lizarde

We have used Josie many times and it is always a great experience.

Gregory P McDaniel

Josie and her team get the job done!

Josie is very professional and straightforward. I appreciated that I could always get a response to my questions and concerns in a timely manner. I needed assistance getting dependable contacts to prepare my home for open houses and showings. It was great to get word of a promising offer less than two weeks after it went on the market! The inspection and escrow process went smoothly as well. If you're looking to sell and/or buy a home, I recommend contacting Josie Andrade and Associates!

Tracey Daggy

Just want to say thank you to you both for putting so much attention to our home and making sure this process is as transparent as possible.

You're both absolutely wonderful to work with and on that note, have a great weekend and looking forward to next week. Thank you to the both of you, dearly. This process has been such a joy. Fun, exciting and a slight hint of stressful. You both are clearly Titans of your industry and it shows. Glad to be a part of your team.

Alex Macy

What an amazing team!

Referred by a friend, we couldn’t have had a more positive experience. We met with Fred and Beth who suggested a few small improvements to help our condo show better. We took their advice and received several strong offers right after listing; our condo was one of the highest selling units in our complex. We can’t say enough positive about this team! Not the usual nightmare drama .... just an easy escrow. ***** 5 stars for Fred and Beth! Thank you both, we will use you again!

Joye Meleski

Thank you to Beth Hale and Fred Smith!

They are an amazing professional duo and were willing to go above and beyond in our recent challenging sale. So appreciated Beth's availability for questions and keeping us well informed. And, her negotiation skills are epic! They never failed to have a recommendation that worked for the many little details that came up. We highly recommend them for your Real Estate needs.

Barbara D

Josie provided a high level of assistance to me and my brother in selling our childhood home.

She was able to guide us in getting the home ready and managed the contractors in doing the work to prepare the home for sale to obtain the best selling price. She was always supportive and with her high level of working knowledge of real estate she was an asset in navigating the process during some very demanding changes in the market, i.e. Corona virus. I would highly recommend her to support sellers and buyers.

Lloyd Clark

We have never had a better experience in selling a home than we did with Josie.

She is very professional, yet makes us feel like friends. She was on top of everything - from staging our home to all of the paperwork and necessary phone calls. Our open house was wonderful, and from the time we engaged Josie to the final sale and move-out, she was always available and always did exactly what she promised. Josie made our move easier than any we have ever done. Josie is the best - thank you for all you do!

Kitty T.

I came to Priscilla after going to 3 different realtors.

All of them were referred to me as “the best”. All 3 gave me similar numbers and my hopes of becoming a 1st time home owner were almost non-existent. She asked me what I expected out of her and she delivered and then some. She got our first offer accepted against other very tough offers! Then, she got our escrow closed in 26 days! She got us in our dream home for the price/payment we wanted. No surprises, no tricks, just looking out for us every way she could. If you’re serious about buying a home, do yourself a favor and talk with Priscilla. You will be shocked at how easy she makes it look. Thank you again, Priscilla! You made our dream a reality.

Antonio Ozuna

Beth was amazing!

I am so thankful we had her! She was extremely knowledgeable about buying process! She was a huge help, and answered all our questions. She has such a positive energy about her, I really enjoyed it! I would 100% recommend her! If we ever decide to move again, I know who we will use! Thank you so much Beth!

Célia da Cunha

Beth went far beyond the scope of the average agent, to get my house sold.

I would recommend her to anyone who wants an agent to go the extra mile, know the real estate market, is completely honest ( a must for me), and to secure a solid buyer. She knows her business and shares her knowledge with her clients to get the best job done in the least amount of time. Absolutely recommend her!

Susan Tenerelli

My family and I have known Josie for about 13 years now.

Josie helped me and my family purchase our first home in October of 2009. Josie and her team were very patient and helpful during the whole process. We have referred Josie to multiple friends and family members. She has found the perfect home for the people we have referred to her. She is currently helping my girlfriend and I find a home of our own. Josie and her team are very attentive and will answer any questions you may have. Buying a home is a big step and that's why you should trust Josie Andrade.

Erick C.

Beth Hale has been a friend of mine for over 20 years.

She is one of the most responsible and professional people I have ever known. Beth works with her clients in an honest and clear way, which helps them navigate through all the paperwork required to buy or sell a house. Besides, Beth has always focused on helping others, which she does with both friends and clients. I highly recommend Beth Hale as your realtor.

Dalva Dwyer

This review is for Josie Andrade & Associates.

A great team of professional individuals who helped us with the sale of our 1st property and simultaneously buy our 2nd home. Wife and I know how stressful buying a house can be but this time around the process was way easier. We listed our home and within a week he had 8 offers, the process of choosing the best offer and having a strategy on the purchase of our new home was a great team effort from Josie & Associates. They were very thorough in their research of the area and communicative with the various strategies that we could employ in order to sell and buy our new home. The constant follow ups on each step of process just kept our family at ease. I think it us critical to find a team that is professional and have an effective game-plan as buying and or selling is a big deal in everyone's life. You can not go wrong with this team. Josie & Team are great to work with, they come with my highest recommendation and we will not hesitate to referral them and use them in the future.. Thanks Josie Andrade & Team for the great work !!!

Oscar Salgado

Beth is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and professional.

She puts in the time to set up the property for viewing, holds open houses, and carefully evaluates the incoming offers, Whenever I buy or sell a property, I definitely want Beth there working on my behalf.

Donna M Smart

Joise sold 3 of our homes!

2014 ,2016 and 2019. Josie changes the standard definition of Relator. She spent hours listening, educating and giving us recommendations for our fix it list months before she knew we would be ready to list our first home. She had a list of tradesmen at fair prices that I have used for all 3 homes we have lived in. She even sent us records we would need before tax season in case we misplaced the originals. Josie and her team are professional, responsive, honest, and highly motivated. Everyone says my standards are too high. Josie standard are even higher. If you want an excellent Relator working for you, choose Josie and her team.

Diana M.

Beth and Fred were so helpful during this whole stressful process.

They always understood what our priorities and needs were!!! I would highly recommend!!!

Davina Perez

My husband and I just bought our first home and we owe it all to Josie and her amazing team.

As first-time home buyers, we didn't know what to expect. We had always heard how stressful it is to purchase a home, especially in LA. From beginning to end, it was a smooth process. Emilio did an excellent job scheduling home tours in a timely manner. He was very knowledgeable and honest. After every tour, we'd always connect with Josie to let her know our thoughts. Josie taught me so much about the real estate industry and helped us make the best decision for our family. We feel so blessed and grateful to have had Josie as our agent. She is professional, passionate, hardworking and an expert in her field. She is well-known and has a great reputation. She went above and beyond for us and got our offer accepted on our dream home. With it being a such a competitive market right now, I know this was not an easy task but she made it happen. The lender she works with, Rene, is also great. He was always available to take my call and answered any questions I had. We closed escrow pretty quickly. You are in excellent hands with Josie. She will take good care of you. Thank you Josie for making us homeowners! :)

Jennifer Dominguez

I cannot say enough great things about Josie and her team!

Josie helped my husband and I buy our first home, she not only made the process feel easy but educated us along the way. She truly wants to see your family prosper! I have already recommended her to my brother who is starting the process of buying his first home with Josie. Take a chance with Josie, you will not regret it!!!

Corina P.

Josie Andrade and her team are wonderful and very helpful during the entire process of purchasing a home!

Josie first helped my parents buy a home years ago and she was great then hence why my sister and I knew we could trust her and had to have her as our agent to purchase a home. Throughout this whole process she explained every little detail and answered any questions we had along the way, she didn’t pressure us about any of the properties or decisions if we didn’t seem convinced with them and that really shows she has your best interest. Josie and her team were great at communicating with us especially with a pandemic happening, they reassured us that we were making the right decision and answered our questions quickly. They were a pleasure to work with and we would definitely use Josie and her team again and recommend them to anyone trying to buy a home!

Anahy Fuentes

She got an idea of how we imagined our future house and found it for us.

We closed the deal and are very happy with the results. Excellent guidance throughout the process.

Bernhard Tagwerker

“I have worked with Beth in the past and can assure first hand that her level of professionalism is incredible!

She is knowledgeable and loves to help her clients make good decisions. Her team follows the same standards and I wouldn’t work with anyone else for my Real Estate needs!”

Marcos Strafacce

Owning a home had been my dream for so many years, and Josie made that dream come true.

Josie, Emilio and their entire team are simply amazing! Josie is very professional, knowledgeable and great negotiator. The house I bought received 5 offers and honestly I was worried that my offer was going to be rejected. However, Josie personally contacted the seller's agent, prepared a better offer, built a strong relationship with them and negotiated a great deal for me. Thanks to Josie's work, I was able to make the purchase. Thank you Josie and team for your incredible work. I'm thankful to my friend Mayra who recommend me your services. Now I can certainly recommend you with my family and friends.

Vero G.

“My few experiences with Beth and Fred have always been exceptional.

They are professional and I could always trust their advise. They have always put my interests above theirs. A must for me!”

Maria Isabel Reis

Haven't worked with too many realtors.

Josie and her professional staff makes me want to look no further. If you want your dream home, call Josie.

Hector G.

Wow 20 years ago Josie, sold us our first home.

We were so happy to be in the city and the area we wanted to be. Now my parents have gotten a little older and we all decided to get closer to my work and family. (Sister) Josie, helped us put our house on the market. We got a few offers the very first weekend it listed. A few challenges thru the process of getting qualified to buy our next house but Josie and her team guided us to repairing our credit. (Credit Repair) After accepting the best buyer for our house we right away starter looking for our new house. We found the house we wanted and Josie suggested we close our escrow so we may have a better chance to get our offer accepted. We were very worried but doing that but Josie, had a plan and she assured we will not be left out in the street or worst with two mortgage payment. Again, we were scared but Josie, continued to assure us that everything will work out just as planned. Emilio, worked with us to go out and look at houses he helped us in making the best decision on the right house for us. Both my parents and I saw that he was most honest and we can tell that they wanted what was best for us and didn't just sell us any house..Yesterday, we closed escrow for the new home. Josie's plan worked and we got the house Mom really wanted. My dad got to pay off Debt and still we have more money coming. I am very happy with our experience and most of all my Mom and Dad are also very happy.

Daniel Ross

I have developed a great relationship with Beth Hale and Fred Smith over the years.

Their dedication to me as one of the affiliates and also to their clients is evident in all they do. They want only the best for their clients. They are trustworthy team players who work hard and I am thankful to work with them on their team.

Pam Summerfelt

Beth and Fred were great and got our home sold quickly and for a great price!

They were easy to work with and made the process a lot less stressful! 5 Stars!

Karina Genaro

Priscilla was the greatest help at a time where we did not know where to start looking for a new home.

For the longest time we lived in a 1 bedroom apartment with a family of 5. Priscilla helped us start looking for what we wanted and what we would like to have in a new home. After many months of searching we found the house we all wanted that met our needs and She helped us with the process all the way through! She was very attentive and above all she cared about the right house for our family. Thank you so much!

Jason Pinzon

If you need to buy or sell your house, I highly recommend Beth and Fred.

They have been our families go to realtors to buy and sell homes. They helped us buy our first condo in 2008 and when the time came to sell the condo it was an easy choice to call Beth and Fred to assist with the sell. When my parents needed help selling their home that needed some renovations, I recommend Beth and Fred and they met their expectations. So when the time came to buy our house in Seal Beach in 2018, the only people I could think of was Beth and Fred to represent us. They make the whole buying and selling process a breeze. Even as a repeat customer they take the time to explain all the paperwork thoroughly. They have a great team and truly represent you and meet your needs.

William Yang

Beth and Fred were good helpers selling our house and helping us finding a new home.

They did a really good job and they had a hard work because the contingency on selling and buying is not easy. Also I am a demanding person and Beth was really patient with me.

Sonia R. Barqueiro-Nunes

Beth is a great realtor.

Professional, personable, up to date on the market issues. Best of all, totally honest, trustworthy. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone.

Sue Tenerelli

Purchasing a home can and will be the most exciting, but yet most stressful moment in your life.

However, the process can be easier when you have the right team. Josie and Associates went above and beyond to assist me and my fiancé purchase our first home. We recently closed escrow (April of 2020) and Josie was extremely helpful, professional, and she literally went 100 miles an hour to make us home owners. Josie has a wonderful team which includes a loan officer, Jorge Gonzalez who made the process easy and smooth. Definitely recommend that you give them a call if you are in the market to buy a home. Josie will definitely fight for your offer to get accepted in a market that is becoming really competitive.

Christopher C.

My husband and I first met Beth at an open house that we happened to walk into.

What stood out to us about our first interaction with Beth was that she was really kind and willing to answer our questions while still giving us the space to look around the home (not to mention the Brazilian treats she had prepared!). A few months later, we met with Beth to discuss the process of buying our first home. Beth was very knowledgeable and patiently walked us through the entire home buying process and answered all of the questions we had come up with. Although my husband and I had tried to prepare ourselves by researching all the information we could find, we would not have been able to get through the process as smoothly as we did without Beth and Fred. Both Beth and Fred are honest, hard-working people and it was apparent to us from the very beginning that they love the work they do. Beth and Fred are a dynamic team, giving their very best work to their clients. Our journey of buying our first home could not have worked out better and my husband and I have Beth and Fred to thank for that!


“I’ve know Beth for over 30 years and can speak highly of her honesty, professionalism and dedication to anything she does.

Whether you are buying or selling a house, she is your girl!”

Rokana, Ana Jamile

I’ve known Beth Hale for 25 plus years.

She is the most trusted person in the Real estate Business. Talented, resourceful, trustworthy. She goes beyond her duties to help her clientes to get what is needed to buy or sell a home. She even help her clients to get what is needed to sell/buy a property. She helps the buyer/seller solve problems related to maintain their properties. We trust her with her help with our business and personal quests. Trusted, loyal friend.

Evie Blount

I don't normally write reviews but this was a must.

Josie was recommended to me by a friend. My experience with Josie from the first time I spoke to her on the phone was amazing. She is very knowledgeable, honest, professional, ethical, and treats you like family. I love how honest she was so we wouldn't waste our time with a property that wasn't worth it. She really looks for your best interest and her attention to detail is immaculate. I also loved how she kept us informed every step of the way so we weren't left wondering "what now?". She is definitely a hustler, quick to respond, and she has some magic going on. We're were top 5 on so many offers. I recommended her to my cousin because I know she'll take care of them. We felt at ease having her on our side. This is a realtor you want in your corner.

Lesley M.

Beth and Fred did a fantastic job of helping us through a challenging probate sale.

They were quickly responsive from our first contact to close of escrow. They took care of so many of our needs, including preparation and staging of our property, virtual tour and in-person showings, negotiation with buyers, extra help with probate legal requirements. We feel they went above and beyond to provide excellent personal service. We highly recommend them to anyone in the market to sell their home. Thank you Beth and Fred!

Patti T

5 stars —- excellent.

Beth went above and beyond to obtain a fair price for my condo.


I have worked with Fred and Beth for many years photographing their properties.

Beth always make sure everything looks perfect. They are both very professional, they go beyond to assist their clients and get the job done.

Liz Celis

Hi Josie, I'll call you tomorrow to give you a formal thank you.

All is set and we got the key today! Couldn't have done it without you. Thank you.

Sindy & Gil Mora

As sellers KNOW, emotions run high at EVERY corner.

Thank you Josie 4 keeping my feet on the ground your tactful way...I recall the first offer but I insisted in counter offer for ALOT MORE!

Josie...YOU ARE MY REALTOR Thank you for showing me, YOU WORK FOR ME, even negotiated an Xtra day for me to pack up when I was running behind!!! Thank you for selling my house!

Martha Ramirez

My husband and I couldn't be in better hands when it came to purchasing our first home together.

From the beginning to end, Josie went above and beyond. She gave us updates on every step of the way. When you are a first time buyer, you need that assurance and information and Josie was always there for us. We were blessed to have Josie and her perfect team guide us through this process. Josie was always accessible to my TONS of questions; mostly 24/7; Her dedication and commitment when it came to finding the perfect home for us; and even during stressful times, just offering to hear me out. She is truly the best and what she does!

Amanda Avalos

Josie Andrade was referred to me by my niece and I’m glad I listened to her.

As a new home buyer I was intimidated by the process and knew I would feel clueless of a lot of things that would come up in buying home. From day 1 when I spoke to Josie Andrade she put me at ease and explained in detail of the process. Josie & her team were by far phenomenal throughout the whole process and stayed a step ahead of everything. Josie and her team kept the ball rolling at all times and kept me well informed from start to finish. Very professional, very knowledgeable. Josie & her team will go above and beyond to get things done. I never ever heard anyone in her team say “NO” we cannot do that for you or it can’t be done. That was never in their vocabulary. I would highly recommend Josie Andrade & her team 120% . Don’t think twice about her team Please do me a favor and call her you won’t regret it. Josie Andrade my respects for you . Your AMAZING! Thank you & your team for making our dream come true.

Jackie Juarez

I'm not good with words but I can truly say Priscilla really was and is a blessing She was very patient drove me everywhere to look for a home answered all my questions and if she didn't have the answer she would find it, she was there every step of the way with the loan and escrow since this was my first home I had no clue but learned so much Now I own a beautiful 4 bedroom 2 bath big lot , lots a playing area for my grandson.

Thank you Priscilla and your team . Sincerely Olga Avila

Olga avila

Josie is so amazing!

We landed upon a brand new home that fell out of escrow. We had already been working with Josie in our home search so when this dropped in our laps she swiftly changed gears and stuck right there with us for every step. It was not standard in any way due to the lender and how they conducted business, however, Josie stuck right by our side and helped as much as she could in every way possible. So if you are looking for a really good real estate agent that will do whatever it takes and will always fight for your best interest look no further; Josie Andrade is the way to go!

Yvette Garcia

Josie Andrade has been my Real Estate Agent for many years and has always exceeded my expectations!

She listens and understands your unique situation, whether it's your first home, an upgrade or the purchase of a rental property. I would never make a move without calling Josie first. She will walk the neighborhood and talk to the neighbors in addition to checking all the comps to get the best deal for her clients... Additionally, her team is fantastic. She holds them to the same high standards she holds for herself and they deliver!!

Denise B.

We have been knowing Josie Andrade for about 3 years now was referred by my cousins friend her family had bought a home and she was her realtor so she came highly recommend.

So we decided to work with her 3 yrs back we were looking and we where so excited to get process going her staff is very knowledgeable got the pre approval from her lender but unfortunately my husband got hurt so we had to place everything on hold. Fast forward 3 yrs later Since we were renting the landlord decided she wanted to sell the house so we had 60 days to vacate all of a sudden so this time we were limited on time and since things were moving so fast the landlord told us about her realtor so we started the process with her it was our biggest mistake this realtor which will remain nameless was so slow to put in a bid will take her five days to do so we lost two homes since I know we are in a very competitive market. So I was fed up. I decided to to call Josie Andrade told her my situation what was going on and the sweet person she is she was on it got the ball rolling her team was on it needless to say we got in our first purchased home thanks to Josie and her team in 32 days the process was done so easy made everything so effortlessly. I would highly recommend Josie Andrade and associates 100% I would definitely work with her again and refer any friends and family to her she knows her stuff and she’s always on it. We are so grateful and blessed that we continued with Josie and Associates.

Beatriz Salazar

I’ve known Beth for over ten years.

I was recommended to her by a common friend of ours. She helped me list my house during the recession and walked me through the entire process, always looking to my best interest. A few years later, I had the opportunity to work with her as her assistant, and I witnessed how dedicated she is with all of her clients. Beth is always just a phone call away.

Denise R

Real estate professionalism at its best!

Josie and staff managed the sale of my parents home with grace. It was a very delicate situation for my elderly parents due to limited physical abilities, but Josie sold their house with finesse. Unequivocal loyalty and end result of our business experience is a friendship.

Joe V.

Priscilla Marquez, helped me sell my condo "As-is" when the other agent couldn't sell it.

Priscilla, sold it in 10 days and received multiple offers and got me over asking price. I'm very happy with the outcome and highly recommend Mrs. Priscilla Marquez. She's very honest and patient and hard working too.

Janet Yandell (83 old Seller)

Now that I have digested the entire process and all that comes along with all the purchase of a new home.

I can truly say that I’m soo happy that I went with Josie Andrade & Associates. They truly took care of me and in more ways that I knew at the time. I honestly believe, if I had not gone with Josie Andrade and her team, I would not have completed our dream of home ownership. Her experience and combined with agile and modern solutions to market conditions is superb. Also, her proven track record I’m sure had a big part in obtaining and securing an accepted offer. As many of you know that 2020 was a competitive year as rates were at all-time lows. I feel that Josie and Team have a great grasp on the market and can help buyers like myself position them properly in making the right offer. Thank you Josie and Emilio and everyone on the F1rstTeam, from my family to yours. I hope if I ever have to go through the home purchase or selling process again it can be with you and your awesome team again. Best Regards.

He was always available to take my call and answered any questions I had. We closed escrow pretty quickly. You are in excellent hands with Josie. She will take good care of you. Thank you Josie for making us homeowners! :)

Jennifer Dominguez

Before I leave my review on Josie Andrade and Associates let me just say that I hardly ever leave reviews.

I have found that the service must have been exceptional and have completely gone out of there way in providing a service for me to leave a review. So with that said, my experience with Josie Andrade and Associates was beyond exceptional. My husband and I had a smooth process with our first home buying. Buying a home is a big step and I had a million questions. Josie had answers for all my million questions, she is very knowledgeable, and very experienced. She always took the time to explain every move. She is honest, a good listener, and treats you like more than a client. We where very comfortable and where at ease with this big step in home buying. Her staff always kept us updated and where always available to speak with if need be. Her entire team was a pleasure to work with and will recommend to anyone. I know who I will be calling on my next real estate need.

Amber R.

Josie and her team went above and beyond!

I was happy that she was one call away at all times and was very thorough in explaining to me where we were in the process. She's extremely knowledgeable and is passionate in what she does. I've heard of stories where purchasing a home can be stressful BUT because I had her as my realtor, I could not relate. If it wasn't for her, I would not be a proud first time home owner. I am forever grateful to her. THANK YOU!! :)

Working with Realtor Priscilla Marquez was GREAT!

She helped our family find the PERFECT home! We are so grateful for her experience, commitment and passion to get us into our dream home. Priscilla helped us to find it in the location of our choice, and also at the best price. Her integrity and flexibility helped us feel confident and also she knew exactly what we were looking for. I am definitely recommending her to my friends and family who also want to purchase their own home.

Josie Andrade has been my Real Estate Agent for many years and has always exceeded my expectations!

She listens and understands your unique situation, whether it’s your first home, an upgrade or the purchase of a rental property. I would never make a move without calling Josie first. She will walk the neighborhood and talk to the neighbors in addition to checking all the comps to get the best deal for her clients... Additionally, her team is fantastic. She holds them to the same high standards she holds for herself and they deliver!!

Deborah Denise Benavidez

Josie and her associates are great, they helped us get exactly the investment property we were looking for, she helped us make informative decisions, it’s was a long rough process, after like 10 or more offers, she stuck with us and we closed escrow, remodeled and put the place up for rent .

We couldn’t be happier

100% professional!

Josie definitely knows what it takes to sell a house! As good as she is, what I really appreciate is her willingness to help answer any questions about anything relating to real estate even if it does not directly involve her selling or buying a home in her area (we moved out of state)! It has been over a year since she sold our house and to this day she is still helpful! Thank you Josie!

David G.

Josie Andrade & Associates are absolutely amazing!

As a second generation client I knew I was in good hands because Josie did an amazing job helping my parents find the home I grew up in. Josie is an expert in her field! Josie always made sure my husband and I understood every step of the way. With the market being extremely competitive as first time home buyers we were scared we would not get our dream home, but Josie always reassured us that we would get the home that was right for us. We are forever grateful to have had Josie guide us through the whole process and find our dream home. Thank you Josie Andrade & Associates!

Diana Ochoa

I am forever thankful for Josie and her team, they definitely went above and beyond to make the process of purchasing a house fast and easy.

I would 100% recommend to my family and friends.

Beth Hale and Fred Smith are our go-to realtors for buying and selling.

No high-pressure sales tactics here, in fact, they'll go out of their way to make sure their clients are protected and feel good about the transactions regardless of how many questions they might have. In a super hot market, buying and selling is stressful, but they came armed with a wealth of knowledge to ensure that we were putting our best foot forward, even when things were super competitive. Though it took some time, they made sure to show us a ton of houses, and went above and beyond to make sure properties were on our radar. From showings to closings, we knew we were in good hands. We highly recommend!

Ryan Cox

Dear Beth, thanks for giving my clients and me the oppotunity to work with yo a beautiful in and out Broker like you, it was an honor you are beyond ethical, fair, and most of all caring with a heat of gold.

May more blessings come your way.


We've had an excellent experience with Fred and Beth as a team.

It was so different from previous times when we sold a house. They are so professional, dedicated, knowledgeable, and honest. We trusted their advises, guidance and intentions. No question was a stupid question. They were there ready to answer and clarify all our concerns. Always available and ready to assist. We loved working with them!

Liz and Peter C.

Josie helped us with the purchase of our first home last year Aug 2016.

She is the BEST realtor in the business!! If you want to buy or sell a home you will totally benefit from her knowledge and expertise. She is very professional but also gives you the sense that you are working with a family member or friend. She would always call me back and answer all my questions (even the ones I would send her at 6am). Unfortunately we didn't begin our search with her. We wasted our time with a different agent for about 6 months and were honestly beginning to think that being a homeowner was not in the cards for me and my husband. Just as we were about to throw in the towel a family friend referred me to Josie. Turns out Josie had help her entire family with the purchases of their homes!! I new from the first meeting with Josie that we were in good hands. She has an amazing team behind her and within 2 months we were purchasing our first home!! I absolutely recommend Josie to anyone that is thinking of purchasing or selling a home. Buying a home is probably the biggest purchase you will ever make and having an honest hardworking realtor by your side that you can trust is so important for your success! Give her a call, you will see the results!

Claudia H.

Josie is the only person I would use to buy or sell a home.

She's very professional with her and her team, they explain everything and break it all down for us to explain.

Taylor Williams

Where do I begin about Beth… Not only is she knowledgeable and a very professional Realtor, but she is also extremely honest and caring.

Always putting our needs above hers. Beth made the scary process of buying a home for the first time, something enjoyable and we still love the results: our dream home and a new friend!

K. Borelli

Literally couldn't of done it without you.

Thanks for your patience and answering all my questions. I know I'm not the easiest client, but you did a great job helping me understand everything.

Alexander Macy

It was an absolute pleasure having Priscilla Marquez as our realtor.

From the beginning, you can feel the ambition and drive she has to represent you. Using a VA loan and being a first time home buyer, Priscilla explained the process in full detail. During the uprise of the market, Priscilla would communicate with us on a weekly basis so we can remain up to date and answer any question we may have. After a short time we found a home in the perfect neighborhood. Thank you Priscilla for all your hard work and dedication to us!

Alejandro Lopez

Josie is by far one of the greatest existing Real Estate professionals.

Working with her and her team is always a pleasure. I can confirm and vouch how important Josie's clients are to her. She is very genuine, goes above and beyond to provide her clients with exceptional service. Lisa Hurtado

Lisa Hurtado

It's always such a pleasure working with Fred & Beth.

They are very professional, very knowledgeable and very dedicated to their work. They go above and beyong for their clients. Just an awesome team to work with. I would definetely recommend Fred and Beth if you are looking to sell or buy a home.

Mirtys Rodriguez

Ms Marquez was always on top of things.

Answer alls of our question. She explained steps by steps on buying a home as a first time buyer. Never complain on the many times I call her about a question. I am very happy and grateful for having Ms Marquez as my Real Estate Agent and First Team. I will recommend my Friens and Family with Ms Marquez

Mr/Ms Carlos Zalvala

Josie Andrade and Associates – Where do I begin?

My family was in a place where we had to move and we went with Josie and her team to assist us. She had worked with other family members with whom she had a 20+ year history, helping them to buy two homes over that period. So her reputation was already established personally. I know other brokers that I could have worked with, but my wife and I decided to go with her. When we started, we weren’t even sure if we could get a home, but she made it happen. She proved herself to be a tireless, driven, intelligent expert in the business who will work hard for you until the job is done. She is realistic about what can be done, but will also make sure you get the most for your money. She works with lenders that also deliver at the highest standard and will do everything they can to make sure you are pre-qualified and know exactly want you can afford. She will teach you not only about the home-buying process, but the local real estate market so be ready to learn :-). Emilio also worked with us and stepped in seamlessly to assist us when necessary. If there are any special programs you can take advantage of, she will let you know. They are connected with professionals if you require physical work, who are ready with the same professional and affordable standards. 5 stars, gold star, platinum, whatever the top mark is, she gets mine. You will only go right with Josie Andrade and Associates.

Ryan Whetstone

I strongly recommend Priscilla Marquez as your next agent.

She has the best qualities that home buyers need in a real estate agent in today's market. Within only 6 months and continuous effort she was able to make the purchase of our first home happen! Priscilla has drive, she is quick, has great communication, as she goes out of her way to make sure you receive important information needed. I admire her terrific aggressiveness and tenaciousness as an agent. Thank you so much, Priscilla! We love our beautiful home!

Jeaneth Lopez

I just purchased my first home with the help of Josie and her team.

From our first conversation I knew she was the right person to help me with this journey. She asked all the right questions and really took time to understand what I was looking for. I never felt pressured and appreciated her professional insight on things I would not have looked at when looking at properties. She always responded to my questions in a timely manner and kept me in the loop during the entire process. Even after escrow closed she still followed up with me to see if I needed anything. I would definitely recommend working with her.

Erika A.

Good morning Josie, just wanted to say you didn’t have too.

This is a lot of money. After we left your office my mom wanted to go see the house and I totally forgot about the gift you gave me. With that said I want to thank you for this gift, its been rough these past months but thanks to you we were able to get a highlight out of this year. Thank you so much for everything. My parents and family are truly grateful for all the help and patience you had with us.

Maria G and Jose R

We met Beth in an open house a couple of years ago and she stayed in touch with us.

We were impressed with her professionalism and how knowledgeable she was, so when the right time came, we didn’t hesitate to call her and her team to sell our home. High level service! She is the best!

Fernando Wilhelms

Fred and Beth have the experience, as well as the technical and people skillsets necessary to help any buyer or seller with their real estate needs.

As a loan officer, I've had the pleasure of working with them multiple times and have seen how their systems empower them to perform at a high level for their customers. You will be in good hands with Beth and Fred !!

Beth and Fred are two individuals that you need by you side during the complicated process of home buying.

They are professional, reliant and dedicated to ensuring the best outcome for you. Im more than happy to speak with any future buyers who are considering Fred and Beth, to describe why they deserve 10 stars, not just 5.

Shaun Stewart-Cruz

Beth was a great Realtor to work with.

She assisted me every step of the way, from an initial consultation explaining all details of the process, to negotiating and keeping me informed of what was going on. Couldn’t ask for more. Will certainly use her again in the future.

I had the pleasure of working with Josie and she and her team are one of the most professional and very knowledgeable teams out there.

Josie gets the job done! I love working with agents like this. Thanks Josie! Hope to work with you again!

Anna Valladares

Josie isn't a real estate agent nor is she just a realtor - she is a trusted advisor.

She's a true professional at what she does and loves it! We connected in 2016 after she helped relatives purchase homes and even though we didn't purchase until 2019, she remained available - willing to advise. She delivers a sales experience - understanding your needs and delivering the solution - like no other and we're glad we chose her. Also, her team and partners are easy and great to work with and not to mention our loan officer is a former Cavalier (HAIL TO THE RED AND BLUE)!! If you need a team that's going to go all in, we recommend Josie Andrade & Associates!!

Deon M.

Josie was transparent, honest, and the reason why we are home owners today.

She worked extremely hard and went above and beyond on making sure we bought the right home for us. As first time buyers, we had many questions and hesitations about the process. She couldn't be any more patient, and resourceful. Glad she was on our side during the whole process.

Martin M.

Beth Hale is the most dedicated Real Estate professional I've ever met.

She always goes beyond my expectations; she assisted my family when I was uncertain about the best decision of selling or keeping my house in Torrance. She heard my concerns and guided me towards the best choice for my family at the time. In addition, she takes the time to understand your ideas and expectations, which I find so important whether you are looking to buy or sell. If you are looking for serious professionals definitely reach out to Beth and her team. Recently, I asked her to search some cheap land in Southern California as I was planning to potentially purchase an RV and park on this lot. Sure thing, few minutes later she had a whole tailored inventory available for me. Lastly, Beth has always looked after me by offering her most honest opinion. I will always admire her willingness to help others and trustworthiness. Oh, she is an excellent cook, definitely ask for one of her amazing recipes!!! -Irene W.

Irene Wheeler

Priscilla means business!

! She was such a joy to work with and is constantly looking to save her clients money. She was always available to answer questions and ensure to communicate at every step of the way. I truly appreciate her honesty, integrity, and perseverance. We were a young couple with average credit, little savings, and a VA loan and she made it happen! She helped us make our dream of becoming homeowners a reality and in our top location! We can't thank her enough!

Ashley Dawson

Josie and her team are absolutely amazing!

! They are responsive, attentive and make the buying/selling process, which can be a very stressful time, as easy as possible. Josie takes the time to answer any questions you have, no matter how simple or complex it may be. She really makes you feel as if you are her only family. She has been our family realtor for 4 home purchases/sales, and I would recommend Josie and her team to absolutely anyone!!
