Imagine if a physician could find a Real Estate Professional that specializes in working with physicians by visiting an online database of real estate professionals who regularly sell homes to doctors. MD Preferred provides a preferred database. When searching for homes for sale a doctor or other healthcare professional is often interested in upscale neighborhoods in close proximity to area hospitals. Because most physicians have on call responsibilities they will want a personal residence that has a short drive time to not only their medical practice office or clinic but also to the hospital where they admit patients.This is where Josephine will help you find everything you need, in the location you need as your #1 MD Preferred Realtor.

      Josephine Traina, a REALTOR who cares. As a first-time home buyer, I was looking in a relatively modestly priced homes, but Josephine always made me  feel that I was a priority for her.   She was extremely patient and knowledgeable, and always made sure that I  understood everything about the process. She guided me through the many details involved in the loan process, contracts and made the whole process easier. Not only is Josephine a great Realtor, but we have become friends as well. I would not hesitate to recommend Josephine to anyone looking for a home in the Charleston area. She was professional in every way and always had my best interests at the forefront of the transaction. Rose King

  • Josephine treated me like a daughter! She helped me pick a beautiful, reliable house that was in a good neighborhood. I never doubted any guidance she gave me. Even after I bought my house she came over and brought over a home cooked meal to welcome me into my new place. She worked with my crazy schedule, was always responsive, and made the whole process very smooth. Thank you Josephine!! Dr. Doris Kim, MUSC  
  • Josephine clearly knows the market and the customer (seller) and what "quality" buyers are looking for.  My home sold in less than a week and at the highest price in my subdivision.  Her approach and marketing knowledge made selling the home "effortless" on my part. J. DiCesare

    Josephine worked tirelessly to make an almost impossible deal come to pass.  We needed to close within two and half weeks.  Josephine found the sellers another condo and helped arrange the financing for them, and the deal closed on time.  We are very grateful for her services and for contributing to our favorite charity in our name.  We highly recommend her services.

    After interviewing 4 other agents we knew right away that Josephine was the one for us. She is professional, knowledgeable, easy to discuss things with and able to keep calm when we were not. She held our hands throughout the whole process and made it so easy for us. She thinks of everything that could happen before it happens so that there is very little worry. She was there from beginning to end and for that we are so very grateful. When we get ready to buy a home, she is the only one we will call. I wholeheartedly recommend her

    I give Josephine the highest possible rating! We worked with Josephine when buying a condo in Charleston for our daughter near the MUSC campus. She was a delight to work with! She's professional, knowledgeable of Charleston, helpful with local contacts and recommendations for many services. Excellent follow up and attention to detail which living 2 hours away was very much appreciated. I will recommend her to anyone looking to buy property in the Charleston area.

    “Josephine helped me find a home in Charleston. She knows the area well and guided me throughout the search and decision-making processes in a proactive manner. Her sophisticated and collaborative approach is particularly suited for professionals who are looking for a partner to guide them towards what they want rather than sell to them. She cares. We’d recommend her highly to anyone who is buying or selling real estate"
