Meet Josh

Bringing a successful record of 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 hard work and ambition never does.
 
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 Scotland and Indonesia. He has hiked to Machu Picchu and Mount Everest's Base Camp, canoed the Amazon River and swam in the Ganges, fly fished in Kiritimati , sailed in the South Pacific, trekked at 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 have 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 the Year Award for 2012. He has been one of the Top 100 Real Estate Agents in the State of Hawai'i from 2013 thru 2023 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, as well as also serving on the Board of Directors for the Hawaii Association of REALTORS® (HAR). Additionally, Josh is currently Chair of the REALTOR® Party (HAR) and serves on the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Major Investor Council. As a real estate columnist for the Maui Weekly, he encouraged readers to "Ask Josh" about a range of issues. In addition, as the founder of the Josh and Souk Jerman Foundation, he has given more than $75,000 to college-bound high school students across Maui County.
 
Josh cares for his clients and is dedicated to delivering the highest level of customer service to achieve the best results for his clients.
