    Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Dimondale, MI.

    This is my second transaction with Jeff. He represented me in a residential property sale earlier this year when I rehabbed a home to resell. He then handled the recent purchase of our new home. Jeff is very experienced and knows the Greater Lansing area market very well. Every seller agent we spoke to knew Jeff and respect him. That is a plus for either a buyer or seller. We will use Jeff again in the future as we handle real estate through our auction business.

    Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Williamston, MI.

    Jeff was always available when I needed information. He knew what was available, how to present an offer, how to close. He was up to date on all aspects of the real estate deal.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Perry, MI.

    Jeff came to us through a referral and we are ever so thankful that we connected with him. He sat down with us, went over our needs and went to work. He was receptive to all our feedback, and used that to narrow in on the most appropriate home for us. He didn't waste our time during this process. He would go out of his way to show us homes, even last minute and on short notice. Very helpful, good communication, responsive and delightful.

    I would recommend Jeff to all friends and family without any hesitation.

    Thank you Jeff for all your hard work!

He new what to look for in the homes we looked at to see if there may be future problems the we might run into. He asnwered all questions asked. If he did not know the answer he got it for us in a very timely manner. I would defenitely recommend him to anyone buting a home.

    Sold a home in 2011 in Williamston, MI 48895.

    Jeff did an outstanding job. When the buyers loaning agency backed out the day before closing Jeff set the buyer up with a local mortgage broker. The buyer was able to get finanacing and the sale was completed.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Williamston, MI.

    My husband and I had the pleasure to work with Jeff Thornton. He was professional is way. He was thorough, thoughtful, fast, and accurate. He has a friendly personality and I would recommend him to anyone. I can honestly say he is the best realtor I have ever worked with. My husband works for a large bank in the real estate division and agrees that Jeff is one of the best.

    Thank you again Jeff for everything you have done regarding the property in Williamston.

    Bought a home in 2011 in Williamston, MI 48895.

    This man is amazing not to mention the most calm and understanding person I have met. I have asked more than my share of questions and I was at all times treated with respect and had a response almost at once, no matter what I had in mind. He made the loan process easy by working side by side with the bank and myself. I believe he had gone way beyond his required service when it came to getting our new home ready to be moved into.

    Sold a home in 2011 in Williamston, MI 48895.

    We contacted Jeff to sell our families home and land because if anyone could sell it, Jeff would. The property and home was listed in June and sold by mid November, same year!! Who says that nothing is selling? That is what the rest of our family thought.... Jeff earned his commission and was on top of it all the time. Details were worked out and closing went smoothly!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Williamston, MI.

    Jeff was responsive to our needs and wishes, easy to contact, and kept us informed. He is very personable, is a good listener, and high energy.

    Downside: I am not sure his "bag of tricks" is extensive, to wit: each house/property is different/unique and requires a marketing plan. I believe one of the major shortcomings in the industry is there is one plan for all. Get the listing and dump it into the system. What I am saying is Jeff is equal to all the above average agents but I don't believe he stands out.

    My disappointment-no one called to say thank you!!

    Ron & Leila thank you for rating me on Zillow. I really enjoyed working with you even though it was for such a short period of time. Selling your home in 5 days didn't give us much of a chance to work together. I apologize for not thanking but I thought I had when I spoke with Leila after the closing. I will call you next week to do just that. I hope you enjoy your new home in your retirement.
