Bringing a successful record of nearly 20 years of real estate sales on Maui, Josh Jerman has distinguished himself as both a rising star and industry leader in Hawaii real estate. This should come as no surprise, as he has proven time and time again that the market may change, but ambition never does.
Josh's team includes two salespartners, Tim Stice, R(B) and Rich Wu, R(S), as well as Executive Assistant, Tammie Matsuura. His team runs like a well-oiled machine and ranked as Hawaii's #1 small team by sales volume in 2020 with sales of
$75,628,500 (Real Trends) and surpassed $150,000,000 in sales in 2021. Josh has adapted to the changes in both the real estate market as well as the industry, by incorporating systems and team members to represent luxury real estate, new project sales, as well as short sales and bank-owned inventory (REOs).
Raised in Upcountry Maui, Josh attended Baldwin High School before heading to Seattle to attend the University of Washington. There, he graduated cum laude with two bachelor's degrees, one in International Relations of the Asia-Pacific Region and the other in Comparative Religion. He has traveled the world (23 countries and counting), and has lived in Indonesia, Nepal and Scotland. He has hiked to Machu Picchu and to Mount Everest's Base Camp, canoed the Amazon River and swam in the Ganges, sailed in the South Pacific, trekked in the North Pole and touched the Great Wall of China. Throughout his adventures, Josh developed an appreciation, awareness and respect for all people, an experience that inspired him to give back to his community.
Josh returned to Maui to start his career, and over the years, he has earned a solid reputation for professionalism and personal integrity. His hard work and success has not gone unnoticed. Josh has been recognized by Pacific Business News as one of the 'Top 40 Under Forty' professionals in the State of Hawai'i. He was also named one of the Maui Weekly's Unsung Heroes of 2010 for his philanthropic endeavors. Josh was also honored as the recipient of Maui County's Young Business Person of Year Award for 2012. He was recognized as one of the Top 100 Realtors in the State of Hawai'i by Hawai'i Business for seven years-in-a-row from 2013 thru 2019 and was named Realtor Broker of the Year by the Realtors Association of Maui in 2019.
Josh’s expertise as a broker extends far beyond the four walls of his office in the The Shops at Wailea. He has held numerous positions with the Realtors Association of Maui (RAM) since 2005, including Director-at-Large (6 years) and he currently serves as co-chair of Professional Standards. He served on the Board of Directors for the Hawaii Association of Realtors (HAR) for four years and is currently Chair of the Realtor Party (HAR), and has served on the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Major Investor Council for the past three years. As a real estate columnist for the Maui Weekly, he encouraged readers to "Ask Josh" about a range of issues.

Josh is dedicated to delivering the highest level of customer service in order to achieve the best results for his clients.
Josh is the best!! We've worked with him on 3 condo purchases and he truly made the long distance purchasing process a breeze. His knowledge of the Maui real estate market was invaluable for a non-local. He must not sleep because we never had any issues with contacting him with our questions and concerns. Josh put Aloha in our Maui property experience!!
Josh has been extremely helpful to me on multiple transactions. His market knowledge is strong and is a trusted source of mine for interpretation of value on Hawaii property. He has handled complicated sales for me and balanced needs on the sellers and buyers side perfectly. Josh does a great job of staying current with new sales, and listings and I trust his market knowledge. I have experience with him on both sides of transactions and recommend him highly for anyone looking for a real estate professional in Hawaii.
