Sold a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $500K in Scituate, MA.
Jonathan did a great job. My husband did not have an accurate price value of our home. My husband based his price value on the real estate tax evaluation we received from the Town. The Town based the valuations on the prices of the houses that had sold the prior year, not taking into consideration important factors, size of home, lot size, ammeneties (ie, central air), age of home, etc. As a result of this number crunching method (In the 29 years we lived in the home, an assessor had never personally come into the home to properly assess its actual value.), our tax base value was about $100,000 over the actual sales price value. Jonathan very diplomaticaly brought my husband's expectations down to earth. Our house sold almost exactly for the figure Jonathan quoted. He was very helpful in helping us dispose of the furniture in the house. Since we were moving to Florida and were moving into a completely furnished condo, we had no need for most of the household items in the Massachusetts home.
Jonathan Ashbridge went beyond in keeping me updated, explaining things to me, accomodating my schedule and in helping with all the final details. There was even an instance in which he went well beyond what was required of him. He also knew my needs and requirements and always keep them in mind. He was very upfront and honest and did not spring and suprises on me. He made the experience and process much easier than I thought it would be and did a lot to keep to me from getting too stress out.
He took in account exactly what we were looking for. Never showed us a property that didn't meet our criteria. Didn't push us to purchase something we weren't 100% on. Walk us through and did good job of explaining the process.
The guy is a home buying genius. Amazing. Incredibly knowledgeable and responsive. Jonathan is truly able to anticipate your needs. He knows what you want before you do. He's your #1 supporter and advocate. He's in your corner and will fight tooth and nail for you. He's a realtor, inspector, and appraiser all rolled into one. His knowledge seems never-ending. I couldn't imagine going through this process with anyone else. He doesn't leave any stone unturned. I highly, highly recommend Jonathan.
Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $250K in Central Weymouth, Weymouth, MA.
We hired Jon to sell our property after our first broker failed to properly market our property. Upon signing a listing agreement with Jon, he took pictures, updated our listing, and held an open house the first weekend possible. He was very proactive and helpful throughout the entire process. From keeping us updated about prospective buyers and their potential concerns regarding our property. This enabled us to take small steps to make our property more marketable. Once done with negotiations, he handled the rest of the paperwork (including obtaining a certificate for fire safety) and scheduling to pass papers. He's been in touch since the sale of the house simply to see how we are doing, or if we need any real estate advice/help. I would recommend him to help sell your property on the South Shore, as he is a very active agent who fully participates in the sale of your property.
