Josie Ashmore, Realtor
Real Estate for Real People
I have lived in the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City areas for the past 27 years and have over 17 years of Real Estate experience, professionally representing both buyers and sellers in
residential, investment, commercial, land, farm and new construction transactions. I am completely "hands on" in my approach, handling every aspect of each transaction personally. Whether you are new
to the market or an experienced investor, I have the expertise, proven track record, and resources to help you achieve your real estate goals.
I understand how exciting and emotional buying and selling a home can be. You will have questions and decisions to make along the way. That's why it is crucial that you are completely comfortable with your real estate agent as a confidant and professional. I will do my best to put you at ease and always give you the time and personalized attention you deserve.
If you're interested in selling, you can rest assured that I have embraced the most up-to-date marketing methods, systems, and technology to ensure you get the maximum exposure needed to get your property sold. If buying is in your near future, I will be your step-by-step guide throughout the search, negotiation, and purchase process.

“Josie was the listing agent for my son’s residence when he relocated to the West Coast. Since he had already moved, an agent needed to be selected without anyone in our family actually being in Cedar Rapids. I am an out-of-state attorney with extensive experience in real estate transactions, so I had high expectations. Josie exceeded my expectations. She is smart and can be counted on to be on top of what is happening. Josie offered suggestions, answered questions, and gave us the comfort level that we were in good hands. Particularly gratifying to me was her outstanding communication.”
-Ed, lawyer in Illinois
"Josie is the kind of Realtor that anyone trying to buy or sell a house should want. She is a great communicator and pleaser. She truly works as hard as she can for the transaction to be as successful and seamless as possible. I first worked with her in 2004 and most recently in 2010. I highly recommend her to anyone looking at buying or selling in the real estate market. You will not be disappointed!"
- Matthew Mullins, Cedar Rapids, IA
"Josie was amazing! I could get a hold of her whenever I needed to. And when I called her multiple times throughout the day, she returned my calls promptly and was always helpful, answering all my questions with a smile. She made the entire home buying process, even the last minute problems with the mortgage, a good experience for me. I don't think I would be in my own home right now if it wasn’t for the hard work that Josie put in. I would never want to use anyone else for buying or selling a home."
- Nathan Parker, North Liberty, IA
"I've worked with Josie as both a first-time buyer and a first-time seller. Josie has been very informative and helpful throughout both processes in explaining how things work and the best way to
do things. She is always cheerful, positive, and honest. Through both experiences I've grown to trust Josie whole-heartedly and consider her a friend. I plan to buy again in the near future and
unquestionably Josie will be my realtor. I will continue to strongly recommend Josie to anyone looking to buy or sell."
- Terry Pump, Cedar Rapids, IA
"Josie took care of all the headaches that can occur when listing and selling a home. She made my experience and transaction enjoyable and smooth, and left me with nothing to do outside of signing the papers! Given some of my other experiences, I was pleasantly surprised, and will call Josie the next time I am ready to buy or sell!"
- Michelle, Marion, IA
"Josie was friendly, no pressure, always available, honest, good communication skills, knowledgeable, helpful and sympathetic with our relocating emotions. I would stand on the streets handing out
her cards. She was beyond wonderful."
- Betty J., Walford, IA
"I've worked with Josie as a home inspector and as a home buyer. In both cases, she has demonstrated a strong understanding of the real estate market, as well as being very honest, straight-forward, and easy to work with."
- Lucas Pump, Cedar Rapids, IA
"I have worked with a local BIG company before on previous homes and thought the transactions were satisfactory until I worked with Josie on my last purchase. Instead, of the usual business type atmosphere, Josie took it to a level unheard of. Instead of feeling like "Just another Customer", I feel like I have gained a friend and a realtor. In the past dealings it could be days before my agent would return my calls. With Josie, it was immediate. Never did I have an unanswered question. Would I refer my friends to her… You bet and I’ve already done so. I know my referral will be treated with the same respect as I was. When I get ready to sell my house, I know who will be listing my home. Thanks, Josie, you're the best!"
- Tom, Cedar Rapids, IA
"Thoughtful, thorough, sensitive, and always available to assist! We are very pleased with her professionalism and hard work selling our previous home and finding our new home! 5 stars!"
- Hank and Jan, Cedar Rapids, IA
"UNBELIEVEABLE EXPERIENCE! I'm not even sure how to go about explaining how pleasant our experience with Josie started. We were 1st time homebuyers, new to the area, and we needed a little help going about our purchase. Luck was in the air the morning Josie returned my phone call to Re/Max. Josie was so pleasant on the phone and one thing I clearly remember her stating to me was that she prided herself on not being pushy! Then and there I knew we had our realtor! From then on she completely blew us away with her ability to be so knowledgeable, thorough, and prompt with all of our questions. She worked long hours assisting us in every way possible with a smile on her face. She wasn’t just in it to make a quick sale, she's the type of person who sincerely felt happy for us once the deal was done! Josie is without a doubt a wonderful person who really truly cares about her clients. Which in turn, makes Josie an incredible realtor! We will always remember and tell about our amazing experience with Josie!"
- Rachael Ryan and Patrick Murray, Cedar Rapids, IA
"Josie is unfailingly professional: competent, knowledgeable, and energetic. She is ethical and works hard for her client. She does what she says she will do, always returns calls and is a wizard with email. (I mostly purchased my home by email – easily!) I should also point out that Josie is a very nice person. I have been involved in numerous real estate transactions and this one was almost fun. Thanks, Josie!"
- James F., Cedar Rapids, IA
"Josie did a fantastic job for us in what was sometimes a challenging process. She was exceptionally accessible and responsive and stayed on top of all aspects of the transaction."
- Donna Smith, Cedar Rapids, IA
"Josie Ashmore is professional, knowledgeable and above all honest. She has genuine concern for the happiness of her clients. We intend to use her services for all our future needs, both selling and buying. It is without hesitation that we recommend her to everyone we know."
- Pati Ramos
“Josie is very easy to work with, had an open house every other weekend for us, and always has a positive attitude. She's never too busy for any questions or concerns. We would recommend her to all of our friends buying or selling.”
- Connie W., Anamosa, IA
“Josie makes the house buying process a breeze. She is there to answer all questions and make everything easy to understand. Josie shows a lot of patience and I did not feel any pressure to make a decision on a house. She has a very flexible schedule and is able to make time to show houses to accommodate anyone's work schedule-day or night.”
- Amanda M., Cedar Rapids, IA
“Josie was amazing! My boyfriend and I were first time home buyers & Josie was so patient with us, she made us feel like we were her only clients! She had an assistant who was also available if she would be delayed in responding. We had some bad experience with our mortgage lady; however she was our saving grace through it all! I would & do strongly recommend Josie for anyone who is a first time home buyer, or an old pro.”
- Shannon H. & Robert L. Cedar Rapids, IA
“Josie is very professional, full of energy, attentive to your needs and RELIABLE. An out of state agent screened her for me out of six other Realtors, and boy did he make the right choice for us! When it was time to fight for us she certainly did so. Highly recommended - Thanks Josie.”
- Cedar Rapids, IA, Buyer
“Josie did a great job for us! We were purchasing a foreclosure in a small town and the foreclosure process is flawed at best. Josie was very knowledgeable, patient, reassuring, persistent and professional throughout the entire process. I don't think we would have gotten through it if not for her. I would recommend her to anyone!”
- Stacy & Anthony M., Springville, IA
“Josie is a very friendly, honest, and hardworking realtor whose goal is to make every client happy with each situation when it comes to buying or selling a home. I highly recommend her for a successful real estate transaction.”
- Mike O’Brien at O’Brien Home Inspections, Anamosa, IA
“Josie was a blessing from the start. She was always researching the answers to my questions before I even knew what the questions were, as well as encouraging me to ask still more questions. I have never seen anyone work so hard and be so cheerful and encouraging at the same time. Even after we have purchased our home, she continues to be there for us with answers to even the tiniest question, providing courteous professionalism more thoroughly than I had thought possible.”
- Magda A. Cedar Rapids, IA
“Josie was wonderful in so many ways. I told her in the very beginning that I wanted someone who wasn't pushy because I knew my purchase could take a while. She was everything and more in what I was hoping for in a realtor. I would recommend her without any reservations. She is more than just a realtor to me. I consider her a friend!”
- C Klimes, Marion, IA
“I have worked with Josie on several occasions and it has ALWAYS been a pleasant experience. She has the best attitude and really helps to keep us all remaining positive through the entire process. You couldn't ask for a better agent! Definitely not one of those agents that just sticks the sign in the yard and walks away, she is pounding the pavement looking that perfect buyer or new home!”
- Marie, Cedar Rapids, IA
“Josie is an amazing person!! In my opinion, her main interest is always making the buyer/seller happy. Her communication skills are absolutely amazing! She is very responsible, organized, reliable, caring and overall a WONDERFUL Realtor!! I would HIGHLY recommend her services! I will definitely ask Josie to help me in selling and buying my next home!”
- Cedar Rapids, IA, Buyer
“I had a wonderful experience searching for my home with Josie. She did a great job of listening to what I was looking for and finding properties that closely matched my wish list. I never felt pressured to make a purchase, and yet Josie was always willing to provide advice or help when needed. Throughout the buying process, she worked to get me the best value possible, as well as find a great home. She's so easy to get a hold of and prompt to respond - e-mail, phone, text... you name it! I am so glad that I found her, and recommend her to anyone in the Cedar Rapids area looking to buy or sell their home.”
- Cedar Rapids, IA, Buyer
“Josie is very hardworking and will go above and beyond for her clients. I would and have recommended her to my friends and co-workers.”
- Tina K., Shellsburg, IA
“Josie is an honest trustworthy realtor who is always willing to go above and beyond for each and every client. Her knowledge and understanding of the current market, her attentiveness to detail and her professionalism makes her stand out above the rest. Highly recommend her!”
- J.L. Cedar Rapids, IA
