— Ashley S.
This spring, my girlfriend and I decided it was a good time to casually start looking for our first condo. We went to a few open houses and realized we should find a local buyer agent. Our first meeting with Jeff put us at ease right away. He was respectful (we had our concerns as young, first-time buyers) and was willing to explain everything to us. We felt very comfortable with Jeff and appreciated that he had a sense of humor. This home-buying thing might actually be fun!
After that first meeting he took us on several showings, during which he learned more specifics from us on what we were looking for in a home, and we learned from him what kinds of questions we should ask seller agents and things we should be looking for at showings/open houses. Jeff was always willing to listen to our feedback and thoughts on condos we visited.
Although we ended up finding our future home at an open house without Jeff’s presence, we were able to confidently make the decision to start the offer process because of the knowledge that Jeff had given us. He kept us patient during the price negotiations with the sellers, which meant we were able to get the closing price down about 4.8% from the listing price.
Throughout the offer, acceptance, home inspection, and closing, Jeff was consistently available to answer questions (even late at night!), calm our nerves, and be our general go-to guy. He was even willing to go the extra step when needed–like speaking to our parents when they had questions.
We think very fondly of Jeff and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy in the Long Island area.
