Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $350K in Ojai, CA.
Our family started looking for a home in Ojai while on vacation. Trent Jones spent an afternoon introducing us to the town and how our needs might be met here. My wife and I felt he really listened to us and saw what we were looking for. In a short time, we grew to trust his integrity, judgement, and resourcefulness. This was vitally important as we were shopping at a great distance and relying on these qualities. He soon found a perfect house for us and we felt confident throughout the entire process that he was working hard for us in this important decision. As we could not move to Ojai for a year, he also quickly found ideal tenants to rent our property for that period and helped us manage the property from a distance. Trent is rock solid in a way that you no longer expect from any profession and he totally knows the market. We considered him a partner in our search. After we closed on our house ( and he managed this to the last moment) I told him his service was as if we were buying a five million dollar home (far, far from the fact) and his response was that our purchase was just as important to us as if we were and he wanted it to go just as smoothly. I can't say enough good things about our experience with Trent Jones and Ask Now Real Estate. Glenn and Nancy Perry and family

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Oak View, CA.
On my first visit to Ojai in 2007, I met Trent Jones at Ask Now Investments. He's a no nonsense Texan with a heart bigger than Alaska. It was this trip that planted the seed of potentially leaving our current home in Brooklyn, NY and moving to Ojai. The listings that Trent tirelessly sent me wouldn't be on sites like Redfin until at least a day or two later. I felt like I had real valuable, exclusive information that I wouldn't have been able to get without working with an actual realtor.

We weren't easy customers to please. We had very specific criteria for the kind of house we wanted, and of course, a very tight budget.

Five years later, Trent sends a listing for a house and says, "You should take a look at this property." It satisfied so many of our requirements, we were astonished. We decided to take the plunge.

His relationships with local lenders / escrow companies made this transaction so incredibly smooth, compared to our experience of trying to buy property in Brooklyn, NY, this felt like a cool breeze on a hot summer day.

I am glad to say that we are now first-time homeowners and if I had to do it all over again, it would most certainly be with Trent Jones at Ask Now Investments.

You can't go wrong with this father/son-in-law team of first-rate realtors. We had no introduction to them and cold-called to see several properties, and were completely happy with their service throughout our search experience. When one is busy the other steps in. Trent is amiable and great at listening to what you want - knowing where to find it. Andro excels at following through on closing every detail of the deal. Both did a stupendous job for us - and with the kindness and caring you are lucky to find in a business dealing. They thought of things we would have never even considered or thought to ask, including some issues revolving around cleaning up the property prior to the deal being done. Andro and Trent keep on giving too - we still speak often, they have offered up many names of contractors, repairmen and services we seek, and they let us know about cool events in the community. All in all the best experience we've ever had buying a home!

Sold a home in 2014.
Trent was very patient and had great expertise in the RE field. He returned calls promptly and also helped me every step of the way. He was always responsive to my needs and was able to do great negotiation on my behalf.

I highly recommend Trent and I will always use him as my RE agent.

Bought a home in 2014.
Looking for a home with Trent and Ando is like having a family member at your back. They went to the city records for me do do research, they helped me find contractors who did good jobs, they spoke with an oil company for me. (The property was a complicated one, as you might have guessed.) They advocated on my behalf at every turn.

My point though, is that at all times I felt like they were on my side, that they were willing and happy to do all kinds of work on my behalf. I never felt rushed or pressured. It was clear to me that they wanted me to be happy with my purchase and that they really meant it and that it wasn't just about the money but about integrity as well. This was a great experience.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Ojai, CA.
Recently, my wife was diagnosed with a disability that required her to live in a sunny place away from the Seattle weather. We found Trent on line and were impressed with his experience, and knowledge. Although he knew this would be a long distance purchase he did not hesitate to take us on as his clients. Trent truly went the extra mile, given our unique situation, when I could not be there he acted in my stay. He secured the home we wanted and negotiated with care and respect of all parties involved. I recommend Trent as your agent and know you simply cannot go wrong doing so! Thanks Trent….. well done.

Bought a home in 2013.
We can't say enough about how wonderful our experience with Trent Jones was! He really made our home buying experience easy, fun and comforting.

We had a challenge with another property we were selling and Trent went above and beyond the call of duty to send forms to escrow and help out so very much (this was not even a property he was involved with). He's an excellent ambassador for this lovely community of Ojai and we feel as though we have made a friend as well as a realtor.

I would recommend Trent Jones to anyone interested in buying property in the lovely Ojai Valley. Our dream has come true.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.15M in Oxnard, CA.
We went to see homes every weekend for probably 6 weeks in a row and saw many different houses. Trent was always readily available any time we wanted to see anything We often saw a house many different times and again he was always available to work with our schedule. He had to leave the country in the middle of our negotiations and he made himself available at all times through Skype or e-mail. He is a pleasure to work with

Bought a home in 2012.
When my wife and I started looking for a home in the OJai area we were fortunate enough to come across Ask Now Real Estate on line. That bit of good luck led us to Trent and Andro. After almost two years of patiently helping us look for the perfect home we finally found what we were looking for. They helped us find much more than just a home in a truly beautiful area, they helped us find a whole new life style. They really worked hard for us, never lost there patience with all of our questions, phone calls and e-mails. We always felt that open, transparent, honest feeling through all of the ups and downs of buying a home. It's been several months since we closed and Trent and Andro are still willing to help us with things concerning our new home. We truly value our new friendships with Trent and Andro and I can't say enough good about Ask Now Real Estate. Mike and Barb Rugo

Andro is the most thorough realtor I've ever met. From beginning to end, Andro was there on top of every detail. It seems he never tires of dealing with his clients from small to large concerns. Andro is honest, sincere and concerned for both sides of the deal. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
