Joshua Hauser
District: Cincinnati, Ohio

Josh is excited to move into his new role as the District Director for Cincinnati. He has been with Fathom Realty for over two years and loves the agent model and the local and nationwide company culture. Fathom colleague James Hood was instrumental in building the local Fathom brand and culture, and Josh wants to thank him for his guidance and wisdom. Gratefully, Jim will remain a vital part of the Cincinnati team, and Josh will continue looking to him for advice and counsel.

Before his real estate career, Josh managed his father’s HVAC company until it was sold in 2017. His goal when transitioning into a real estate career was to move into a coaching, mentoring, and support role. While Josh loves the ins and outs and sometimes roller coaster rides of home buying and selling, his greatest fulfillment comes from helping others succeed and reach their goals. Josh truly believes in Fathom’s servant leadership culture and looks forward to serving his District team.

Josh and his wife, Nicky, have been married for nearly 22 years. They met when Josh was doing mission work at Nicky’s home church in London, England, so yes, she has a British accent! They have two children, Zoe, 17, and Jude, 8. In addition, Josh has served as the Pastor of Mason Church of God for 13 years.
