We were nervous about selecting a real estate agent for our first home search after hearing some horror stories from our friends. After we met with Jon the first time, we knew we had found someone who would be great to work with! Jon took the time walk through the entire process with us in our first consultation which was very important to us as first-time home buyers. He also was very candid and forthright with us right from the start, which was was wonderful – I like being able to have a genuine conversation with someone, and not feel the need to tiptoe around sensitive issues. Buying a house is a huge commitment financially and it also involves a great deal of your time and can be stressful – but Jon was great at assuaging our fears and giving us the encouragement and support we needed to make such a big purchase. We got to take care of the “fun” part of the process (i.e. finding a home) and Jon handled the things we were clueless about (the paperwork, the inspection, the negotiations, etc etc.). Jon also is quite knowledgeable about the Philadelphia area and it’s real estate market. Highly recommended!
