Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Brookfield, WI.
This was a second time Jay provided real estate services to our family. He helped my sister sell her condo. Our experience has been excellent from start to finish. Considering the cash transaction, Jay showed personal responsibility to make sure we close with confidence: Jay made sure we understand everything; he personally engaged lawyer to review the property title for us.
His negotiations skills were outstanding and were supported by detailed market analysis and comparison.

Having dealt with Jay in the past when he helped us buy our first home a few years ago, I can say he is the best! I wouldn't work with any other realtor and I would highly recommend him to family and friends. He helped my brother and me sell our mother's house. He knows the business very well, and he responded to our every question and concern immediately and honestly. He was on time for every "appointment" with us and treated us with respect and kindness. When the basement needed repair, he referred us to a reputable contractor who did a great job and whose costs were competitive. Jay is simply...a good person. He loves what he does and goes above and beyond for his clients.
Jay was a great realtor to work with! He was very responsive and he negotiated details in the offer that I wouldn't have thought of. I knew he had my best interest in mind at all times. When I had to schedule appointments he made it known that I scheduled them when it was best for me and he would be there. I would highly recommend him!

We were first time home buyers and The Baumgartner group made it a lot less intimidating than we initially thought. They were willing and able to accommodate our changing schedules and number of viewings.
When we were finally ready to buy "the one" Jay himself came out to the home and gave us his professional and personal opinion about the home we wanted.
Because of Jay's help we were able to go into the inspections and negotiations knowing the right questions to ask and were able to purchase our new house for the price we wanted!

Jay was great! He helped us find a lot and negotiate an offer. We had some contingencies on our offer which he also helped us with. He was very responsive to all of our questions and concerns in a very timely manner.

Jay and his team exceeded expectations in every way. The most responsive person I've ever worked with and very flexible at working with our busy schedule. Jay was very knowledgeable, but what is truly impressive is that he knew when to tap into his network of experts. It was our first time buying a house and he was very patient with us, guided us through the process, and made buying a house fun and easy. He also had great negotiation skills that extended beyond just price; managing the negotiation through closing.
