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, 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 and after working for The Boy Scouts he returned to pastoring for 5 years, the last 3 of which were 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.
