Josh Frappier Owner | REALTOR
In 2014 Josh returned to his New England roots after serving as a U.S. Marine in Afghanistan and living on the West Coast. Having grown up in the Newburyport area, Josh was excited to return and pave a path for himself that was different from the struggles his family faced growing up. During his childhood Josh moved around a lot, often following evictions, and never experienced "home" let alone home ownership. This gave him a deep interest in real estate as a path to financial freedom, and a strong desire to help others achieve their real estate and financial goals. Josh's time in the Marines instilled a fierce level of discipline and tenacity that enabled Josh to create a thriving real estate business from the ground up. Josh prides himself on his innovative thinking, creativity, and passion for helping others achieve their goals. Josh loves his community and can often be found adventuring with his son, Holden, and rescue pup, Ollie.
