Meet Our Team

Josh Monteith

Principal, Managing Broker
Mantra to live by: “Life is a series of choices. You get to choose the type of life you build.”
Josh has long been adventurous when it comes to business. He bought and flipped his first investment property at 21 and became a realtor full time during the 2008 recession; it doesn’t get more adventurous than that. His entrepreneurial spirit helped him take the leap. Although real estate was uncharted territory, using his sales skills (which date back to selling candy and fixing bikes as a kid) and the desire to learn the real estate industry, it was a jump that Josh landed with ease.

More than 13 years later, Josh works diligently with clients to guide them through the—at times—tumultuous real estate landscape. He denounces the ideals of transactional brokers, focusing on building lasting relationships through honesty, integrity, strong ethics, and loyalty. He ensures to educate and inform his clients throughout the entire process and his love of all things business helps him create strategies, plans, and operations.

When he’s not in the office or the field, Josh is likely in Brown County riding ATVs with this family, relaxing in their cabin, or exploring new restaurants in downtown Indianapolis. He’s a city boy, born and raised, and believes the sense of community you find in Indy, along with its affordability, makes it a unique market.

Josh’s personal style can go the French chateau route or completely opposite with a modern, contemporary home. He appreciates the specific architectural details in both.
