John R. sold a home in Gurnee

Jay was a pleasure to work with. We've done so now on two purchases and one sale. Jay was absolutely crucial for us through the process of listing and negotiating the sale of our home. He knew exactly where to price it to gain interest and keep it. He knew exactly the right way to respond to multiple offers that came in and helped choose the right one. Everything went smoothly. We loved the professional photography he provided including drone video which really helped sell our home. We would absolutely recommend Jay to anyone. Thank you!

Donn G. in Mundelein

Jay accomplished the following which I strongly believe contributed successfully to the sale of my home: - Accurately assessed the market and priced the home realistically. - Recommended a certified appraisal to help reinforce the value of the property and facilitate the sale at the price range desired. - Requested that I itemize all recent improvements made to the property which were extensive and significant to the long term value of the home. - Created a strong digital merchandising program that included compelling text, videography and drone imaging. - Provided a pro and con perspective during negotiations without driving a meretricious, self-serving agenda. - Effectively handled administrative tasks through the sales and post-sales process. Altogether, very pleased with the outcome and experience.

Rebecca D. sold a home in Carol Stream

Highly recommend! Jay is extremely patient and understanding. My husband and I never sold a house before and Jay was so helpful during the entire process. He even gave us tips on things to fix and how to do them. He gave us his honest feedback on houses we were looking at. We knew he was truly trying to help us make the right decision and not just trying to make a sale. The house we ended up buying wasnt even a house we originally wanted to see! But because Jay knew what we wanted he found the perfect house for us! Hes extremely knowledgeable about the area and not afraid to ask questions to the towns he wasnt as familiar in. He even called the town we are currently living in to make sure they treat the water behind our house as we had mentioned it was a concern of ours. 5 stars!!!

Linda B. sold a home in Park Ridge

Jay has made the home sale process a breeze. He is a true market strategist and really personable to boot! The direct result of pricing our home right, was that Jay got us multiple offers quiclky. That was exactly what we were hoping for. Our house sold in record time at a fair price. Please don't hesitate for one minute - Jay is the true professional you need. I'm so pleased to have met him and will continue to use and refer his services from now on

John R. bought a home in Round Lake

Jay has made our home buying experience very smooth. He is very knowledgeable and has made it easy for us to choose not only the home we wanted but the right home for me and my wife. Very patient when it comes to us asking all kinds of questions and is also very honest and straight forward with his answers. He even worked with us with the new IHDA program. If you want the RIGHT home for your family, and a smooth process on your home search, then I definitely recommend jay as your realtor. He's been doing it for a long time and has all the knowledge in the books to help you find the home you want and need! :)
