I have been lucky enough to work with Jay on a few transactions. Jay is hardworking, persistent, professional, and an expert realtor. In an industry like ours where so many things can go wrong, Jay goes the extra mile for his customers to make sure they do not by being proactive. I can recommend Jay on the highest level possible.- Sean H.
I have absolutely no complaints about jay. He worked day and night. I didn't think it was hard to be in the real estate business until I met jay! He has been our family agent for a couple years now and I would not use anyone else. I can't wait to contact jay again to make another deal. His level of knowledge, organization and expertise was beyond par. He even catered our home welcoming party with great food. Good work Jay, thanks to you I have an amazing place to live and grow.- Christopher C.
If you want to buy a home, call Jay.We were thinking of buying a home, but had a few questions about the process. We found Jay's profile on Yelp and gave him a call. Jay was very helpful in answering all of our questions about the process and how to get started. He gave us a few numbers to call and asked us to call him back if we had any questions. From there we went to a few open houses and we were constantly being asked if we had an agent. Everyone was so eager to be our agent that it felt uncomfortable. While we wanted to see what was out there on our own first, before wasting the time of an agent, it seemingly became very difficult to actually view homes without first trying to be sold on an agent.Of all the agents we'd met viewing homes on our own, we hadn't even met Jay yet, and he'd provided us the answers we needed by phone to embark on our home search... and he did so without being pushy at all. So, we decided to call Jay back for some reinforcement. We asked him to show us a few homes on our list, along with any recommendations he might have. He agreed and set up a time to meet. The night before our scheduled meet, we received an email from Jay that was basically a schedule for the next day. It included photos and specifications of 10 homes, chosen based on the criteria we'd provided him beforehand, the order in which we'd be viewing the homes, and directions from one to the next. Talk about organization....All we had to do was show up! From there we went house to house, during the weekday afternoons and on weekends, week after week, and not once did Jay ever make us feel pressured. He became our friend. When we were starting to feel bad that maybe we were wasting his time, he assured us that wasn't the case. He said that it was his job to find us our dream house. Well...OKAY THEN! Let's keep this train moving!You see...Jay is a professional. When we would enter a home, if the seller's agent was there, Jay would always introduce himself and us, and then allow us to look around at our own pace. After we finished, we always held a quick pow-wow outside of each home or on the car ride to the next, pointing out the highlights, lowlights, and must-haves. The number of homes on the market in the area that we wanted to live was scarce. So we encountered quite a few interesting seller's agents along the way. Our awesome agent, who had now become a fixture in our lives, had to deal with some not-so awesome agents in his quest to help us. But when he encountered them, Jay was always polite, turning potential negatives into positives, exceeding levels of professionalism that we'd come to know from him, each and every time. Jay was our buffer, who had the professional ability to get the answers we needed about each home, regardless of the professionalism of the agents he had to encounter in order to get that information. We kept him laughing, and in-turn, he kept us focused on our next target. And then we found it. We ended up falling in love with a short sale fixer-upper that we knew we just had to have. When he asked us if we were sure, we gave a resounding "YES", and vowed to do whatever we could do on our end to assist him in getting us into the home. And for the next four months, Jay put in even MORE work than before. While we knew the process would be long, we didn't realize how much paperwork and waiting there would be. The banks, the politics, the rules, and....well, add a language barrier with a seller's agent, and you've got lots of questions, concerns and sleepless nights. Two months into the process, we were second guessing our dream home. So by this time, guess who we had on speed dial? Yep.... Jay.We called Jay day and night with concerns and what ifs, and he always answered, or responded via email, and always assured us that this was par for the course. It took awhile but Jay succeeded at doing everything he could to get us into the home and once we had the keys in hand, he even offered to cater our house-warming party (coming soon)! If you're serious about buying a home and you're looking for an agent who will be just as invested and mentally focused as you are, give Jay a call.Something we dreamed about tackling "in a year or two", became a reality in less than six months with the help of a cool, calm, collected, professional and "ready for whatever" agent named Jay.- Courtney E.
Jay was very attentive and prompt returning phone calls and texts. Almost every time I called he answered and the few times he did not he called back within minutes. We were selling and our buyers were a bit difficult. We had to deal with some issues during the sale and Jay made sure we knew all our options so we could make an informed choice. We never were pressured just informed of our options in dealing with those issues. We would not have closed on time without Jay's extra help!- Colleen A.

I was impressed with Jay's attention to detail throughout our transaction. He was quick as a whip and answered every question to the fullest. We had interviewed multiple agents prior to listing our home and what made us pick him was the fact he spoke from knowledge and confidence. Thank you Jay!"- Nour Z.
