Real Estate Clients share their thoughts.
"After interviewing many candidates, I chose Jay Stokley to rent my property. Jay very quickly brought me a great tenant. After the tenant gave notice, I asked Jay to try selling. I had tried to sell 3 times over the last 5 years without any success. Again, his vision and strong marketing skills became obvious. This time I was getting lots of notice and many showings I'd not had in the past. Within 30 days we had a ratified contract and the house sold at my asking price without issue. I recommend Jay without hesitation to anyone who wants to sell his/her property without hassle. Leave it in Jay's capable hands and he will do the rest. He is responsive, professional, approachable, friendly, hardworking and he listens. He has great vision on how to promote your property and he will aggressively market it for you. After 3 failed attempts, I did not think my property would sell anytime soon but Jay managed to bring me two offers in a short time and ultimately a great sale! I will without hesitation work with Jay again and would recommend him strongly as one of the best in the business. You will not be disappointed. He is a miracle worker."
“Dear Jay, Thank you so much for all your efforts in selling the houses in my brother’s estate. I can’t adequately express our sincere appreciation. During all the difficulties encountered, from having to repair the houses before putting them on the market, working with third and fourth and fifth parties on all decisions and paperwork, resolving repair issues after inspections, maintaining the yards, working with out-of-state clients, and having to wait for decisions to get made, you always maintained your positive and patient attitude and continued to make the process proceed successfully. During all these months you have always answered your phone or returned my calls and emails within minutes. You were always cheerful, professional, and ready to go forward immediately. It quickly became very easy to trust you, as your knowledge, professionalism, and integrity become apparent shortly after meeting you, and that trust makes life so much easier for a client. Our two transactions could have been long-lasting nightmares (and they probably were for you!), but you made them simple and easy for us. Thank you so much! You have our best wishes for lots of continued success and happiness for you and your family."
"My Fiancé and I were first time home buyers and Paige was such a great person to work with. She understood that this was new to us and helped walk us through the process. We bought a short sale home and we heard what a nightmare it was going to be but Paige really stayed on top of things and communicated with us every day about what was going on. We were able to buy our home in record time with a short sale. We are grateful to have had Paige there for us through this process and we could not be happier in our home."
“Dear Jay, We've purchased three homes, but never had a better experience than the one we had with you. You took our many calls, requests and looked with us all over town. We took six months to find the perfect home and school district and you never gave up on us! We love our new home, but if we ever decide to leave it we will call you first! Thank you again for your patience and professionalism.”
