This testimonial is happily and
wholeheartedly written to endorse Jay Wilson and his professional real estate
services. When faced with the prospect of selling our home, and not having been
through the process in more than 20 years, we started taking note of property
listings and agents and spoke with others who recently bought or sold a house
in the area using the services of a real estate agent. Among other things, we
noted the volume of listings by an agent, how quickly properties were sold
after being listed, pricing and whether properties were advertised over time by
more than one agency. Jay was one of many agents who we considered.
Jay was recommended by a former neighbor
who moved locally and successfully used Jay, after she had listed her home with
two other brokers without success. We researched Jay, spoke with others who
used his services, interviewed, and then engaged Jay, and are so happy that we
Jay provided invaluable insight and
guidance on what to do to the house before listing it, the timing of the
listing, pricing, and evaluations of offers from prospective buyers. It is
perhaps not surprising that Jay appraised properties prior to becoming a real
estate agent which gives Jay an excellent eye toward value. In our case, a
number of upgrades were needed to our house. Jay was able to identify which
upgrades were meaningful and which were not, and what was important to, and in
the best interest of the prospective
buyers, allowing us to focus our time and resources on those items that were
most meaningful and important.
Jay is also well connected and enjoys a
great reputation with third parties that can be critical in readying a house for sale, including cleaning
services, electricians, painters, contractors and lawyers. All of the service providers
that Jay recommended were quick, efficient, reasonably priced and professional.
Jay also is well acquainted with the sale process and was able to arrange for
and quickly obtain the necessary approvals from the lenders working with
prospective buyers, as well as the local officials.
We noted that many homes in the area went
on the market before we engaged Jay’s services and some of those homes remained
on the market long after our closing.
We believe that the success we had in
selling our home so quickly was due in large part to the advice and recommendations from Jay and
his approach to the market. For that reason, we enthusiastically endorse Jay
Wilson as your real estate agent.
