Anyone who knows Josephine Claiborn will tell you she is the personification of high energy, unwavering dedication and uncommon instincts. Josephine’s drive, determination and genuine interest in her relationships with people, whether they be family, friends, or clients, have always been motivating factors in her life. That unbridled enthusiasm encapsulates her approach to everything.
Josephine knew as a teenager, working alongside her mother, a successful Broker in El Paso, that she was born to be a Realtor. After attending St. Edwards University in Austin and the University of Houston, she earned her agent’s license in 1981, and became a full-time practicing Realtor in 1986. By 1988, she received her Broker license and she has never looked back!
When, in 1980, she moved inside Loop 610, all of her real estate instincts kicked in – she knew she’d found “Home.” Ever since, she’s been gaining, growing and honing those instincts, providing service superior and neighborhood insights that she shares with her inner city clients.
Identifying herself as an Inner Loop “Lifestyle” expert, her appreciation for the area is unmistakable and heartfelt. “The Inner Loop represents so much of what I believe in. It’s not just an area, it’s a lifestyle,” says Josephine. “As residents, my two sons and I have been able to enjoy all of the benefits it has to offer, and, as a real estate professional, I love to share it with my clients.”
She serves clients buying or selling in River Oaks, West University, Southampton, Southside Place, Museum District, Rice University/Medical Center, Southgate, Bellaire, Braes Heights, Royden Oaks, Avalon, Afton Oaks, Meyerland and Tanglewood areas. She also has experience in master planned communities such as Pearland’s Shadow Creek Ranch and Katy’s Cinco Ranch.
Once featured in “The New York Times Computer Review” for her technical skills, Josephine is keen on the latest real estate technology and was among 10 Houston-area Realtors previously chosen to beta test software prior to distribution. Josephine stays two steps ahead of the latest technology trends to keep her clients informed and updated, and will happily set them up with their own interactive website for home searches.
In her personal time, Josephine is a talented gourmet cook, a skill she treats much like she does her career – there’s no scrimping on quality and her preparation is meticulous.
