Bought a home in 2013.

Jay is an amazing agent. He was representing the sellers in the sale but never once made us feel like he didn't want to help us. Jay was on top of things from start to finish. He responded to us immediately through phone or email and was there to answer any and every question we had. After the contract was signed he didn't disappear, he followed through with us during every part of the process all the way up to the day of the closing. His attention to detail is more ham we could ever ask for and we couldn't be happier to have been blessed with having Jay assist us through the purchase of our first home. Thank you to Jay and his team for making it such a comprehensible, stress-free process!  More Less

Bought a home in 2013.

I was introduced to Jay Charles Team when they were holding an open house at a building in Freeport last year. My parents had recently been displaced from their home by 'Superstorm' Sandy and were considering making a move to a co-op. From the beginning, Jay Charles Team showed concern, compassion and respect for my parents as they began seeking a new place to live. It's been quite an involved process but my parents are now in contract to buy the co-op. The Jay Charles Team have been with them every step of the way. They have gone over and above call of duty - working overtime - answering every question, phone call and e-mail with patience and care. They exhibit professionalism - with a human touch. I'm very grateful for all they've done for our family and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell their home.  More Less

Bought a home in 2013.

I had recently worked with this team and was very happy with my results. I saw how dedicated, knowledgeable & determined they were when it came to the buying a home process. They helped streamline things for me and made it as smooth as possible. For me I noticed how honest they were too which is most important when buying a home. My best interests were always first and do not think I would have gotten that anywhere else. All my calls and emails were returned right away and never felt like I was alone at any part of the process. Would highly recommend them for future dealings.  More Less
