WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Jason is an Instagram pro, our home was showcased to the right demographics. We could not believe the data and interest. He even got it sold sight unseen. What an eye for detail. Your help with the interior design worked wonders, and maybe even saved our marriage. Could not find a realtor that makes themselves more available than Jason, we were very taken care of and he made us feel important. Jason went way above and beyond for us. He certainly has a lot of valuable connections. Thank you for all your help. Jason, thanks so much for all your work on this. Your attention to detail and fun personality has made this experience way less stressful. I've never had a realtor come in and in less than a day re-stage my home in preparation for photos and sell it after three other realtors failed attempts. You are one of the most efficient Realtors I've worked with, normally I'm tracking down documents, thank you. Jason thanks so much for all your knowledgeable help through this complicated purchase. It was nice to have someone looking after every detail. Jason’s amazing advertising and communication skills make him the perfect agent. We are grateful for his guidance and patience as we were making such a personal decision. He was always reachable and quick to act. When Jason said the photoshoot he just had on our home was not up to his standards and was reinvesting in an entirely new photo shoot we knew we were in the right hands. Jason has guided and advised us in three transactions allowing us to do what he calls repositioning our wealth. We are now in our dream home with the cash to make more money moves. Jason's photography and write-up of our home made us fall in love with it over again, we set a record sale price for our neighborhood with a lot contributed from his marketing.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Question: Will you return my calls, texts, or emails? Answer: Absolutely, in fact, it bothers me when you do not message me when something is on your mind. I have a two-hour call back policy on myself. Only when in appointments do I not answer or respond immediately with a text. Question: Why do you focus so much on Instagram? Answer: Instagram allows me to build my brand and connect with followers in a personal way. With over one billion active users on the platform, it's a relevant and very important channel for homes on the market to get current exposure. Question: Why work with you and not a large team? Answer: With me you get me, and you still do get a team of professionals behind each buys or sell of real estate, I employ the best, photographers, sign installers, conveyance, and assistants to name a few, however when you call or an inquiry comes in on your home, I handle it personally. It ensures accuracy and microfocus just on your property. Typically resulting in fewer days on the market and better than industry average list-to-sales ratio. You hired me, why not get whom you hired? Question: After we list our home do you stay in touch? Answer: It’s my job to stay in touch with you. Working closely with you, and giving you up-to-date information while selling is key to the best overall communication. Within 24 hours of any show, you will get feedback, and once a week you will get a marketing report on your home. You will be encouraged to contact me with any sort of questions, asks, or concerns. Question : What extras are in your concierge service? Answer: One of the super appreciated service with JZOKGN concierge is we send professional cleaners to your home after you move out. Allowing you to have one less major thing to worry about. Question: Do you work with everyone that contacts you to market and sell their home? Answer: Simply put no I do not. I feel personalities and a type of property to the mutual value expectation needs to work really well, or the experience and outcome will not be as desired. My business model is about the relationship not transactional. Question: How long should I expect my home to be on the market? Answer: It comes down to two major things, one is priced accurately, and that does not mean lower than the comps. The second is a microfocus and type of marketing of your home. I market a few homes at a time, so you can assure me your home will be the star and get the attention it deserves. Typically these two reasons result in fewer days on the market and well under 60 days. *statement based on home values over $1.2M.
