Josh Gillum

License #:
#: B59106000

I grew up in the small farming community of Indianola Iowa where I learned what it meant to work hard and always give 110%!  I graduated from Indianola High School in 1998 and during my time in school, I determined the importance of taking responsibility and being a team player.  After high school I went on to Simpson College while also working full-time and in 2002 I started working at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage where I fell in love with the real estate industry! 

At Wells Fargo, I enjoyed building business relationships with people from all over America and I was consistently a top producer in my area but I was still missing something, I wanted more!  I decided that I wanted to make more of a difference in peoples lives and that’s when I decided to become self employed and got my license to sell real estate in Iowa.  Being a realtor was the perfect fit for me because real estate is about building strong relationships and going above and beyond for clients, which has always come naturally to me. 

I started Gillum Group Real Estate with the emphasis of providing the best possible customer service with the least amount of hassle.  I’m a no pressure kind of guy and I always give an unbiased honest opinion.  I have a vast knowledge of not only the buying/selling side of real estate but also the background procedures like financing, loan processing/underwriting, and title/abstracting.  Along with having construction and building knowledge, I am able to help educate my clients by utilizing my different experiences in the real estate industry.

I currently work and live in Ankeny with my wife and our 2 daughters.  I enjoy spending time with my family and striving to be the best husband and dad I can be.  I also enjoy Iowa Hawkeye Football, cooking, hunting, cars, and trying new things. 

If you think that I am the kind of person that you would like to work with, feel free to contact me and I promise that I won’t let you down! I am eager to serve you.

"“Josh helped us obtain our dream home and I couldn't be happier with the many hours and hard work that he dedicated as our real-estate agent.""

  -Becky Reed, Client

""Josh was so easy to work with! We were very picky and couldn't find our "perfect" home. He stuck with us and took us to MANY different houses until finding the ONE! He was easy to talk to, always available to answer questions, and always willing to take time out of his schedule to show us MANY houses. I will recommend him to anyone looking for a great buying experience! Thanks, Josh!""

  -Trevor & Macey Holland, Client

""Josh is a fantastic realtor! We were first-time buyers that had been looking in the market quite a while. Even though we wanted to stay within a modest price range and we looked at countless homes, Josh was always there and never gave up on us! My parents also sold and bought a different house with him and had an excellent experience as well. We HIGHLY recommend Josh to everyone we know looking to buy or sell!""
