Climbing Higher

Have you ever wondered how people can scale up a vertical wall of rock? It’s an amazing feat, to watch a skilled rock climber scale up a wall while grabbing hold of seemingly invisible hand and foot holds. Years of training and continual learning are what allow a great rock climber to eventually rise to the top of a mountain. Similarly, Josh Lavik has been climbing the ranks of real estate agents in the Madison area since 2005.

Continual Learning

When you come across someone who is an expert in anything, many people have a feeling of awe because they seem to accomplish their tasks in an “effortless” sort of way. Similarly, Josh Lavik has been constantly learning and growing for many years. His liberal arts education from Lawrence University has provided tools to communicate effectively, think critically, and relate to many types of people. In real estate he has continued on the path of constant and never ending improvement by obtaining his broker’s license, numerous designations (CRS, GRI, ABR, ePRO, SRS), and most recently completing his MBA (Master’s in Business Administration) at the University of Wisconsin.

A Team Based Focus

While constant learning has been beneficial for Josh Lavik and his real estate business, his further focus on building a successful team is really what sets him apart from the average agent. He has a belief that a team of skilled specialists will almost always outperform an individual agent. His team puts the client front and center of every decision made. His team also cares strongly about the community and has been involved in various groups, including: Madison Magnet, Downtown Madison Inc, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, the Special Olympics, and the Monona East Side Business Alliance (MESBA).

Ultimately, Josh Lavik cares about people and is on a mission to create A Better Real Estate Experience. Before, during, or after the sale, Josh Lavik and his team want to help with your real estate needs.
