It is my pleasure to recommend Josh Dotoli from the Josh Dotoli Group as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for a new home or selling their existing home. Josh was proactive, attentive and made sure our recent sale went through flawlessly. I've been involved in many real estate transactions, most recently a $27 million property my wife and I sold to Ellen DeGeneres in Montecito, California. I would highly recommend him for any transaction for $1 to $50 million.
I am an Ohio resident, and I was looking to change my residency to Florida. I have a friend in the Fort Lauderdale area who recommended two excellent real estate agents to me. During the process, a source I used (Zillow) recommended Josh Dotoli with Compass Real Estate. I then found myself with three real estate agents looking for waterfront property in Fort Lauderdale.
I made the decision to conduct my search with one agent, and Josh quickly differentiated himself from the other two agents. During this time of COVID-19, we needed to remotely pursue properties, placing an extra importance in the quality of the communication process from buying agent to buyer. Josh far exceeded all my expectations and requirements during this process. Josh literally made himself available to me 24/7, answering my myriad of questions via cell phone, answering my after-hours text messages, and conducting numerous FaceTime showings.
Working with Josh Dotoli was a very productive and enjoyable experience. Josh is professional, responsive, knowledgeable about the market, and conducts his business with integrity. Most important, Josh possesses great negotiation skills. In the eleventh hour when I needed the best price possible, Josh was able to work with the selling agent and the seller on my behalf to provide me with the best price.
Post-closing, Josh has been there to help me with countless referrals for a landscaper, cleaning service, home repair, pool service, and boat references, validating the fact I made the right decision when I chose to work with Josh Dotoli.
I met Josh via a Zillow message inquiry associated with a property in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. He called me within two minutes of my inquiry. I told him my wife and I were moving from Dallas, TX to Ft. Lauderdale and needed a real estate agent to 1) find a 2-month rental while my wife and I searched for a permanent residence and 2) help us find a permanent retirement condominium. I provided Josh with our parameters (price, sq ft, location, etc.). Within one hour, he sent us a Compass database collection with properties that met our criteria. Before we arrived in Florida in early August, Josh had found us a 2-month rental in a new condominium building, 90 steps from the ocean. Over a 4-week period, Josh showed us every condo property from South beach to Central beach to North beach that matched our criteria. What we quickly discovered is that Josh is extremely knowledgeable of all the properties in Ft. Lauderdale. He was not in this for the quick sale - he dedicates himself to client satisfaction. Josh was very patient with us and pointed out the +'s and -'s of each condo unit he showed us. Josh never wavered on his commitment to find us the best place at the best price and that met our needs. During this 4-week period, Josh's wife gave birth to their first child and he balanced his commitment to us with his need to be with his wife and new baby. Josh always made us feel like we were #1 and yet we knew he had many other clients and his newborn. The bottom-line is that Josh is a true professional in this business. He always made us feel special in the retirement home hunting process. He found us the perfect condo - just steps from the Atlantic Ocean. He made it easy for my wife and I.He took care of every detail all the time. I have bought and sold many homes in my lifetime but I have never, ever been associated with such a talented and personally genuine person in the real estate business. My wife and I think of Josh as a true friend in addition to him being an outstanding realtor. His service is unmatched compared to his peers in this business. If you need a Real Estate Professional in South Florida and/or International, I highly recommend you contact Josh Dotoli for your real estate needs. He is the best in his business by far. You will quickly find that Josh is "heads and shoulders" above his competition.

I highly recommend the Josh Dotoli Group. Josh and Ben helped me during a very tough and emotional time and were the utmost professionals. They made the whole process extremely easy for me. They worked with me to get my condo to market very quickly as I was on a tight timeline. Ben was amazing, he helped me stage the condo, coordinate contractors and was on site for all showings and even went out of his way to prepare the condo when we had a hurricane threat. Their expertise got me the price I wanted with very few days on market. Josh also helped get a title glitch fixed for me by recommending an excellent title attorney David Norsoph at Attorneys Key Title. David was outstanding; he quickly fixed the issue and kept everything on schedule. I can’t say enough about the Josh Dotoli Group, you must use them if you are buying or selling a home in Fort Lauderdale!
I was referred to Josh Dotoli after having a negative experience with another company. Josh met with me personally late one Friday evening and together we discussed a plan to sell our townhouse. He provided data, proof of actual sales, a plan, and a system to gauge our progress. Within a week, our views on Zillow increased significantly (up to 100 views per day) and so did the traffic to our open house events. It was a pleasure working with Josh and his team (in a difficult seller's market), because they were knowledgeable, always polite, professional, responsive, and willing to do whatever was required to get the job done. For these reasons, I highly recommend the Josh Dotoli Group at Compass!
Josh Dotoli was exactly what we needed. We recently relocated from Southern California and needed someone who knows South Florida, has patience and commitment in helping us find our new home, Josh was all the above. Because if his thoughtfulness we found the home that was “just right” and “us”. He represented our best interest through the negotiation process and went above and beyond to make sure our experience was a memorable one. Thank you Josh and Team!
Josh is one of the finest realtors I've worked with. He is focused, hardworking, professional, and a great communicator. He took over my property from another realtor and instantly brought buyers and an approach that worked. I highly recommend him to family and friends.
10/10 experience; Ben Stafford and the Josh Dotoli Group will exceed your expectations of what a realty team is capable of. Ben’s attention to detail, thoroughness and industry knowledge distinguish him from the (many) realtors operating in South FL. He is unassuming, compassionate and sincere- with a disposition favorable to both buyer and seller. If you are fortunate enough to work with Ben, you will quickly identify that beyond real estate, helping the individual customer achieve their goals…

The Josh Dotoli Group and their entire team were an absolute pleasure to work with throughout our entire house buying process. My wife and I just purchased our first house with Juliet’s help, and she went above and beyond anything we expected. We came to her with a house in mind, and she immediately got information about the listing. She then showed us how it stacked up against nearby houses that also fit our needs, and even arranged to go out and view it in person that night so we could put a bid in immediately.From there she was always available for questions, and made it clear to us what the next steps were. She has a wide array of contacts in both the real estate and contractor world, and helped us conduct our inspections thoroughly and effectively. When it came down to the negotiations Juliet was clear with us on what he thought was a good price, and pushed hard to make sure we got fair compensation for the extra repairs the building needed.Even now that the sale has concluded, Juliet has been in close contact with us to make sure things are going well. Juliet and the Josh Dololi Group have even helped us source quotes for work we want done on the house.
We would absolutely recommend Juliet to anyone in a heartbeat; she's an amazing professional to have on your side! We're grateful for her expertise and assistance as we continue to turn our new house into a home.
Josh and his team at Compass have certainly earned their incredible reputation in South Florida as one of the top real estate teams. He has been a resource to my clients on numerous occasions and we have consistently been impressed with his results. When you recommend a professional, you always want reassurance that the recommendation will be well received. In Josh's case every client has come back to us ranting and raving about his team, communication, and ability to get deals done!
We were the typical homebuyers who wanted everything and more while searching for a home! Juliet and the Josh Dotoli Group not only delivered the perfect house, but she was absolutely amazing through the entire process. From always readily available to answer our late night stress calls, to negotiating a great price on our new home! Can't thank her and the team enough!
Josh Dotoli understands people and he understands real estate. Those are are two of his qualities that help make him such a great agent and advocate for his clients. I have closed many real estate transactions with Josh and his team. What I admire is that they remain involved from negotiations through post closing and don't drop off once the contract is executed. I hope to close many more transactions with the Josh Dotoli Group in the future.
Josh was presented with a lot of constraints about location, kind of construction, budget etc, and he was still able to line up a bunch of showings quickly. He was always on time for the showings which was much appreciated. The integration of his team with contacts at lending banks, home+flood insurance reps, and inspection folks etc is unique, and makes the process extremely efficient and painless. If you're looking for a brilliant team headed by a thorough professional, look no further!
I connected with Ben by clicking the information request on an interesting property on Trulia. He responded quickly and we set up a viewing of that property and several others that were of interest. We met and went to each of the properties. Ben knew the neighborhoods and what real estate was expected to do in each. I put in a backup offer on the townhouse I decided best fit my needs. It was not the easiest process to get from offer to closing but Ben was there at every step finding and negotiating the best for me in every instance. Even when I had issues after closing Ben was right there to help. He always responds to texts or phone calls very quickly with a truly client oriented approach. I'll recommend Ben and the Josh Dotoli Group at Compass to anybody for their real estate needs
Working with Josh was a great experience all around. We sat down up front, I told him what I was looking for, and he moved very quickly to find properties that fit my parameters. The best part of working with Josh was his promptness and diligence. Josh is very easy to communicate with and was available at all times to answer any questions or address concerns. It is very clear that Josh is passionate about real estate and helping people through what can be a stressful process.
Excellent support and services, Chiara is very professional and pro active. She understands our criteria very quickly and has helped us achieve our goal. She is a real trusted advisor and I highly recommend working with her.
My partner and I had been renting a property in Fort Lauderdale and we knew we wanted to purchase a home, but were completely new to the process. Juliet and her team at the Josh Dotoli Group made it as seamless as possible. she is very knowledgeable, organized and quick to respond, honest and gracious and she walked us through the whole process. We are so thankful to have met her, not to mention thankful to have her help and guidance to allow us to purchase our new dream home…
Ben was incredible! As a first time home buyer, I was very unsure and not educated on the matter and then I met Ben.
I reached out on Zillow and I was connected with him, he was full of knowledge and excitement. He walked me through the process step by step.If you’re looking for a realtor to find your new home, I highly recommend Ben. His attentiveness and persistence in meeting all your needs when looking for potential new homes is unparalleled
Awesome work by Josh and his team. They were able to negotiate me a great price on an amazing house. I would absolutely recommend them to anybody out shopping. White glove service at its finest.
Josh was excellent to work with. He has a great understanding of the market. He showed us many great homes based on our requirements. We eventually purchased a very nice home thanks to Josh's hard work.
Josh is incredible. A friend of mine had strongly recommended using him and we now understand why. JOSH GETS RESULTS. Due to his industry knowledge, his outstanding marketing techniques and his excellent advice as to how to best showcase our home, we had an unusually large amount of internet and foot traffic to check out our place. As a result, we were able to get very competitive offers and were able to find a qualified buyer within three days of listing it. Thank you Josh!
Josh Dotoli is the absolute best. My husband and I were relocating from Chicago to Fort Lauderdale- in and of itself a major change- and needed someone trustworthy, knowledge, and savvy to help us find our new home. Josh went above and beyond, exceeding our expectations in every regard. He made us feel like a priority at every step of the way, which knowing he has many other clients, is quite the skill. There were many “boxes” we wanted checked in this new home, and I am thrilled to say we now have a home that checks nearly every one. Josh was patient with my many questions, was honest in his advice, and helped negotiate a fantastic deal. I could go on and on! I’m happy to say we now not only have a realtor for life, but a genuine friend!
I highly recommend Josh Dotoli. Thanks to his years of experience, knowledge, and excellent negotiation skills, we found a wonderful home for a great price. He is quick, responsive, and dependable from beginning to end. Even during the final walkthrough, when some agents would just sit back and hope the buyer doesn’t complain about anything, he made sure everything was in proper working order. He had solutions for problems before I even knew there was a problem. He’s not just out here trying to get commission. Some agents will try to push a deal through even when it’s not in the client’s best interest. That’s not Josh. Josh made our well-being his priority and for that I thank him. We were in good hands and you will be too.
My wife and I had the best experience working with Ben Stafford and the Josh Dotoli Group. I first contacted Ben via Zillow to see a home my wife and I were interested in viewing. Within seconds of making the request, Ben called us! He was energetic, polite, and extremely knowledgeable about the area. We had spoken with a few agents before meeting Ben; however, we didn't make the same connection or feel the same enthusiasm that he had. As first time home buyers, we had so many questions about the process. Ben was always there at all times of the day and night to answer us. From start to finish we found a home in just a few weeks and closed shortly after. Overall it was a 5 Star experience!
Josh went above and beyond when selling our house. He took care of numerous issues with the house while we were out of town, and negotiated fairly. He really knows the Fort Lauderdale real estate market well. I've dealt with numerous realtors over the years and wouldn't say this haphazardly, but Josh has far and away been the best. Recommended 100 % for South Florida real estate.
From day 1 Josh was professional and helpful in every way. His handling of the inevitable bumps in the road made for a trusting relationship.
Josh went way above and beyond to assist both the seller and buyer to make for a smooth transition and took care of so many of the little things that popped up.
I can confidently say that Josh played such a massive part in the sale that without him it would never have happened. I cannot praise him enough and would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat!
