Jake Garay

  • Jake listed and sold my home

      I have worked with Jake on a number of real estate transactions. As a Home Builder & Landlord, Jake has helped me to buy land & investment properties, as well as sell new construction homes, single family homes, and fill rental vacancies. In addition to this, Jake has also helped me in my own personal real estate dealings. What impresses me most about Jake is his hard work and dedication. He is not afraid to work long hours, is available at all times of the day, and always communicates in a timely and effective manor. His knowledge & creativity of real estate & the market has helped me tremendously. He genuinely cares about his clients & always acts with their best interest in mind. If you are thinking about buying or selling, I highly recommend giving Jake a call and getting to know him.

    • Jake helped me buy a home

        Jake was a young professional who helped me, a first time home buyer, through every rigorous and tedious task of buying a home. He was responsive, and detailed in his approach and whatever questions I had were answered within 24 hours. I would strongly recommend using Jake and I will be using him again in the future.

      • Jake helped me buy a home

          Jake was very transparent with critical information i needed to know to have a successful transaction with my first home. He was very proactive to all my needs and concerns

        • Jake helped me buy a home

            Jake was great. He addressed questions in a timely manner and made the entire home buying process super easy. As a first time home buyer, Jake made entire experience clear and easy to understand.

          • Jake listed and sold my home

              We used Jake Garay to sell two of our newest houses in Poughquag. As someone who has worked with many different real estate agents over the years, picking the right one was essential to us. We have had many different experiences with agents, and our experience with Jake was by far our most successful yet. Jake assisted us throughout the process, communicated every step of the way, and went above and beyond his "normal" duties to ensure a smooth and easy transaction on both houses. When we saw our listings we were blown away. His hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - our listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition. I've recommended Jake to everyone I know. His hard work, commitment and passion for the job really show. I think you'll have difficulty finding a better Realtor.

            • Jake listed and sold my home

                Jake was an absolutely amazing real estate agent. From the moment my wife and I met him, we knew he was the agent for us. Jake walked us through the buying and selling process of our home with professionalism, honesty, and enthusiasm. He worked with us for months while we found our dream home, and sold our current home quickly and for a great price. He was always responsive and helpful even at times when I knew I was being a difficult client. I was most impressed with Jake's honesty and moral character. He always conducted himself professionally, ethically, and with the highest level of integrity. Through this process, not only do I know that I found a real estate agent for life, but our family has gained a friend. We wish continued success for Jake and will always refer our friends and family to him for their real estate needs.

              • Jake helped me buy a home

                  Jake was extremely helpful and knowledgeable during the whole process. I was a first time home buyer and Jake made me feel very relaxed and made the entire process very easy for me. His communication and professionalism are beyond the norm. He’s very aware and in touch with the market conditions and knows the right time to make certain moves. He has a great network of people working with him including lenders, that will make your home buying process a breeze. I couldn’t recommend Jake enough, and I continue to refer him to all my family and friends that are considering buying or selling a home.

                • Jake helped me buy a home

                    Choose Jake as your selling agent or buying agent if you want to work with a dedicated professional who will give you the competitive advantage in any phase of the real estate market. Going above and beyond to get any real estate transaction to closing has a life changing impact on many families. My fiancé and I saw this first hand when I bought my home with Jake representing us. While home buying is typically a stressful and emotional process, Jake is now more than just our real estate agent for life, but a friend and someone I can count on for any advice. I highly recommend Jake as you real estate agent!

                  • Jake listed and sold my home

                      200% RECOMMEND!!! Jake was the definition of a well versed professional. From the way he presents himself to his knowledge of the industry, Jake Is a a great representation of Berkshire Hathaway. He is way to work with, friendly, efficient and keeps the process very hands off. The only time he reached out to me is when he needed my input on my house sale. Otherwise, he would let me relax, without unnecessary involvement in the process. He always kept me updated every step of the sale and my house has a lot of exposure on the market. Once again, a great experience and I could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you BHHS and Jake Garay!

                    • Jake is a hard working and has great integrity! He will be up front and honest as that is what he prides himself as being. He is very knowledgable and if he does not have the answers he will get them as quickly as he can. Jake has been great for helping me in the deals he has helped me close! If you choose Jake to help or represent you I can assure he won't let you down!

                    • Jake did a great job of helping us fill an unexpected vacancy. He was responsive and effective, gave very good guidance in terms of what the market would bear, and proposed the right solutions as the situation evolved. All in all, a great experience, and the tenant is in before the end of the month -- no time wasted or revenue lost. Update: Recently three tenants gave notice at about the same time, and Jake masterfully juggled applicants, credit reports, different movein/moveout dates, and financial considerations, offering excellent advice and service throughout. He made the situation much less problematic than it might have been, and we're glad he was there to keep the ship on course. We ended up losing almost no rented days."

                    • The sale of our condo by Jake Garay proved to be a good decision to list with Houlihan Lawrence because it was swift and trouble free. We have already recommended him to all the people we know that are interested in selling or buying.
