“My client’s needs are my top priority and I believe our relationship should continue for a lifetime. Some of my clients have bought and sold over a dozen properties with me. I get calls for service professionals, remodel and permit processing advice, and of course market opinions. If my clients are buying in another area, I love that they call me to talk about it. This is a relationship!”
Gail’s professional training, combined with her personal experiences building and remodeling her own homes, have expanded her expertise in project entitlements. It is important to know the City of Malibu agencies and have relationships with those individuals, so our clients receive clear and concise advice on Planning and Development. You cannot put a price on being able to walk in and talk to heads of departments.
Gail also believes in “giving back” and actively supports foster children in Africa, World Vision, Calvary Community Church, Operation Smile, Free Arts for Abused Children, Boy’s and Girl’s Club, local schools and community groups.
Joshua Spiegel is a 3rd generation Malibu Real Estate investor and resident. His father Paul Spiegel was a top broker in Malibu for more than 20 years and was elected President of the Malibu Association of Realtors. His mother and partner Gail Copley, has been a top agent for more than 25 years. Growing up in Malibu with both parents being elite agents, Josh developed a passion and deep understanding of the Malibu marketplace.
Upon graduating Malibu High School, Josh joined the Marine Corps and attended the University of Colorado at Boulder where he earned degrees in Economics and Finance. With the discipline instilled in him during his time in the Marines and the knowledge gained from CU, Josh was able to succeed immediately in the worst depression of the modern era.
Within a year of completing school, Josh had a job with Douglas Emmett, managing more than a million square feet of office space in Brentwood. Soon after that, Josh was offered an opportunity he couldn’t refuse, resort development in Nicaragua and Costa Rica. Immediately, Josh was on a plane to Nicaragua where he spent 6 months bouncing around Central America scouting opportunities for an eco resort.
In late 2007 when the residential housing market collapsed, the financing for hotels dried up as well. Where others experienced difficult times, Josh saw an opportunity in Commercial Real Estate. Spending the next 3 years making 300 cold calls a week, Josh had tremendous success brokering NNN building sales and leases. During that same time period (2007 – 2010), Malibu’s median home value had dropped 40% and the number of licensed realtors had been cut in half. Josh saw his chance to return to Malibu and pursue his passion of selling homes in his boyhood town.
Now partnered with his mother Gail Copley, Josh has come into his own, becoming one of Malibu’s top agents. Drawing on decades of market knowledge, experience and tutelage, Josh is a sought after market analyst and contract negotiator. Combining his vigorous discipline with technological acumen, Josh separates himself from the rest of the pack and is able to be a proactive listing agent, as well as a tenacious buyer’s agent.
In his free time, Josh is an avid surfer, fisherman, SCUBA diver and martial artist.
