Republic of Texas Realty seeks to serve and support home buyers, sellers, and investors in their real estate transactions. We love Texas and Texans and deal exclusively in Texas real estate. While we have close contacts who we refer clients to and receive client referrals from in other states, we have chosen to focus on Texas. Currently we primarily serve Dallas Ft. Worth (DFW), Austin, East Texas (Tyler, Lindale, etc.) and the areas in between. We primarily work with clients who have been referred to us, but are open to working with other clients. We believe that working with clients we like and trust and who like and trust us makes buying and selling real estate a pleasant, and even fun experience. Everyone should find an agent they click with and who they feel understands and cares about their needs, which is one reason there is such a variety of agents in the real estate business. If you are looking for an agent, we’d be happy to visit and see if we would be a good fit for your needs. Republic of Texas Real Estate was founded, and is owned, by Joshua White. Josh studied real estate law, and law of contracts, as part of earning his BBA. After graduating in the top 5% of business majors from a Texas University, he started his career by working for The Boy Scouts of America as a District Executive. As part of his job with the Scouts he was responsible for recruiting and training 400 volunteers and over 4000 youth. While in college he served as a youth pastor for 3 years. After working for The Boy Scouts he returned to pastoring for 5 years, the last 3 of which were at the largest church in Round Rock, TX. After deciding it was time to pursue a different vocation, Josh earned his real estate license in 2004. He worked first with the number one RE/MAX broker in Austin, and then the number one RE/MAX team in Austin before going out on his own. After 4 years in real estate he was recruited to run all the marketing for an online investment company, growing it from under $20 million in sales to over $250 million in sales in 3 years. After leaving that company he returned to real estate and enjoys working with friends, and making new friends, with every successful transaction. People and relationships are far more valuable than real estate, but serving people with excellence in buying or selling their home builds new relationships in the process. Josh has been married to his awesome wife Shelley for more than 20 years, and they have 3 beautiful daughters, which is why he may never stop working :). Besides just being with family, he enjoys trail running, biking, triathlons (finished a full Iroman 140.6 before kids), hunting, fishing, and backpacking. He loves Texas and was born in Dallas, raised in Kingwood/Tomball/Woodlands, spent 15 years in Austin, 2 years in Colleyville, and 3 years in East Texas. He knows Texas well, and is ready to serve your real estate needs with excellence.
