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.

Josephine was great! I've already recommended her to several friends. She found me an apartment within my requested time frame and made everything as simple and convenient as possible.

We had a wonderful experience with Josephine. She was really patient with us, and as first-time home buyers we had LOTS of questions. I would highly recommend Josephine to friends and family.

Josephine was a wonderful realtor. She went above and beyond for us. She was always available at the drop of a hat. We'd call about a new house on the market and we'd see it within a couple hours. On our first offer, she went out of her way to make sure the house would qualify under our loan. Unfortunately we didn't get the first house did to competing offers but we received a call from the selling Realtor and was told how wonderful a job she did and how lucky we are to have her. Luckily we were able to find another house and Josephine was always very helpful. She was constantly in contact with our lender as well and helped speed up the process. We were able to close in 30 days. Even after we closed, Josephine helped us with our home warranty and getting in contact with their local representative because we were having issues with the toll free line. I really do appreciate everything she's done for us and will use her again in the future.

I live in Hawaii. After just 1 visit to Houston Jo took care of everything, including spending hours doing things we could not from 5000 miles away. She continues to help AFTER the sale, a real plus.

Josephine really worked hard on our behalf. Most importantly to us is how fast the whole buying process went. She always seemed 100% focused on our deal and met us anywhere anytime without any delays whatsoever. We did not know any realtors in Houston. We feel we got very lucky that she took such a strong interest in our relocation from Chicago. I can't imagine any other Agents would have given us that much undivided attention.

Josephine did a great job for us (first-time home buyers). As we wanted to buy a house in a relatively short time (a bit over a month), I asked her when I first time met her that I wanted her to be really professional. She showed us 5 houses in a day (visit minutes well coordinated), and another 5 houses on another weekend day. We found a couple of interesting houses, made an offer for one which didn't work our after 2-3 counter-offers, and then we made a deal for the the other one after again 2-3 counter-offers. She did not push us to higher-end houses, but gave me her thoughts for each house and how it would fit or not fit for us. Pretty much all the documents were electronically signed and processed, which I liked. Correspondence was done mostly via emails and often via phone and texts when needed. We are happy about her service and would recommend Josephine to anyone who looks for an awesome realtor to buy a house in the Greater Houston area.

We totally found all of the houses we looked at online, and might have enjoyed a suggestion or two of houses we hadn't seen on line. She was very knowledgeable of the real estate market and knew what was needed when making an offer on the house, filling out the paperwork, and finalizing the purchase. We felt confident that we made the best offer we could, and that all the paperwork was done properly as well as those chosen for inspections, etc. We would recommend Josephine to others.

Ms. Claiborn handled everything in a very professional manner. She knew the market and presented me with a market analysis to assist me in pricing my home. I was updated after every showing. Because of Ms. Claiborn's experience, knowledge and advice, my home sold quickly and I was very pleased with the selling price. Her services were far above my expectations.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Josephine through this process. She is the only realtor who stuck with us during all the months we were looking at homes. When it came to selling our townhouse in a timely manner, she was very competant and dependable. As a person, Josephine is warm, generous, gracious and accessible. We highly recommend Josephine's services.
