About Josh & Dani
Josh and Dani have played, worked and enjoyed each other's company (sometimes not so much - lol) for many years, having met in 1979 and married in 1982. The dynamics of this partnership brings very different skill sets to the table; the ability to have one common goal (to ensure the Client is happy) and approach this goal from very different perspectives - is the key to their success. Josh's background as a tradesman (Red Seal Journeyman Millwright) and Dani's years of sales experience and education allow this team to cover and address many areas of the real estate transaction - a unique quality.
Further, both Josh and Dani have been farming for a few years now, having moved to an acreage just northeast of Airdrie and west of Irricana in 2004. Josh had grown up on a farm in Langley, B.C. (mink ranching) until he met Dani at age 17 (the city girl who wanted to marry a farmer) at which time, the first thing Josh did was leave the farm. It took almost 25 years to get back to the farm where both of them feel very much (and finally) at home.
For over 30+ years the Thomas' have been buying and selling real estate making the 'farm move of 2004' the 'last move' after 23 homes. The Thomas' daughters who are now grown and live in their own places are glad that their parents have concluded to stay put for a long time. For many years the Thomas daughters, Torill and Taymar were always up for the new adventure of moving (yet again) but are glad not to have to listen to their Dad trying to convince them that "moving box hunting is a competitive sport!" and "I've lost track of who gets to pick their room first this time" (the kids never forgot who's turn it was). The Thomas' are also grandparents of 5 beautiful grandchildren; time flies!
With moving so much, the Thomas' had acquired a very good idea of how the real estate market worked as well as many of the ins and outs of financing and planning a successful move. In 2001, Josh decided that the millwright trade would survive without him and he attended Mount Royal College to successfully become licensed as a Realtor. Dani was licensed the following year.
Since being licensed, Josh has worked very hard to achieve many awards since his early days. He became a Million Dollar Club Member with the Calgary Real Estate Board several times over the years - an honour only given to producers that sell in the top 5% of the Calgary Real Estate Board. Josh is a member of CIR Realty's Director's Platinum Club which also places him in the top 5% for sales overall at CIR Realty.
Dani is University educated as well as has her diploma as a legal assistant. She also has over 35 years of sales and service experience. Dani is also a horse nut, Josh likes horses too and goes riding with Dani (only to make her happy) but he prefers his horses under the hood of ANYTHING powered by gas and not oats...but as long as Dani is happy…
The Thomas' continue to grow their business by working both Residential and Rural properties in the Calgary, Airdrie, Cochrane, Irricana, Beiseker, Acme, Linden and areas north and west of Airdrie. Dani opened the CIR Realty satellite office in Irricana in 2005. Experienced, hardworking and most of all trustworthy are words that truly define this couple.
