— Pat Colliton, buyer
I began my search for a home a couple of years ago combing through the online inventory whenever I had a spare minute. After countless hours of browsing, I came to the conclusion that I had no idea what I wanted except for the fact that I needed to be close to the city. That’s when I reached out to Jay & Marybeth. I’ve known Jay and Marybeth my whole life from growing up with their children. Jay taught me how to play baseball and Marybeth was always there to keep me in line. When I needed help making the biggest purchase of my life, there was no one in the world that I trusted more.
Jay and I spent the spring/summer months of 2017 touring houses and apartments within the 95 belt. Every open house I attended Jay was right there next to me educating and providing advice through his 30+ years of industry experience. In the busy summer months of the real estate market, Jay gave me his undivided attention and truly made me feel like I was his only client.
When it came time to make an offer on a property, I learned I was not only working with Jay but with his better half as well, his wife Marybeth. MB was cc’d on every email and knew every detail about my journey of finding a home. In the competitive city market, offers needed to be submitted ASAP, and together they worked as a team to get this done.
After watching one bedroom apartments go for $80k over list and single family homes being absorbed by cash buyers, Jay never gave up on my goal of finding my first home, and in early July, we had an offer accepted on the best property we toured to date. Being a first time home buyer, I had no idea about what steps were needed to finalize a deal. Jay & MB provided a full service and walked me through each and every detail. They were clear in relaying what would happen next and what I needed to do on my end before closing.
I’m confident I would still be searching for a home if I did not have Jay & MB on my side. They made me feel more like a part of their family rather than just a client. I’m truly grateful for everything they have done for me and would recommend their services to anyone who is looking for not just a place to live, but a home.
