Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Rancho Mirage, CA.
Buying and selling property can be stressful and agonizing . Dealing with John Jay was a real pleasure in the purchase of our new home. John had shown numerous properties to my wife and I and we finely decided on an area we both liked. He knew the area like the back of his hand, like over priced properties, ones that needed lots of up dating, and ones with potential. John was very helpful with negotiating the final price, He knew the best loan officer and my wife and I had closed the purchase within 22 days.
If you are looking for an experienced real estate professional I highly recommend John Jay. You will know he is very patient, knows the areas well, will help you with pricing, and if needed can find you a good loan officer.
I have had many years of doing business with John Jay. His knowledge, experience, and attention to detail surpasses the competition. He is a hands on and a get the job done kind of guy. If you are in the market to sell or buy real estate, he truly is dedicated to his clients every concern down to the minute detail.

Energetic professional with great staff. No pressure sales technique. Listens to his clients and responds accordingly. Well known in our community. Has personal website with his listings. Offer written within one hour of seeing property and closed escrow within two weeks.
John Jay was very accommodating with my husbands and my schedule. We came from out of state and when I arrived John had listings available to see. John took the time to go over our house desires and areas and made wonderful suggestions. I would recommend John to everyone. He is very adaptable to your schedule, needs and a great listener. If he doesn't have the answer, he will find it. Karen and Greg from Tacoma, Washington.
We bought our first home in the desert from John. He negotiated very well for us and it all went so smoothly. When we decided to sell the first condo and buy a stand alone home we called John. The condo sold before a month had gone by and he found us a second home which we closed on in July. We can't say enough good things about our experiences in working with John. He worked really hard for us.

I can't say anything negative about John. His energetic, positive approach to life is the synergy that he applies to his profession.
He took the time to inform me on the marketing approach he was using, which was very successful, my condo sold in one day. And while he may have been away from the office in a seminar for a week keeping up on new sources and selling tools, his assistant provided full support, and John was only a phone call away. He uses of the tools of his trade brilliantly, the photos of my condo were impressive and he uses the internet with absolute proficiency. I would absolutely recommend John to everyone buying or selling real estate in Palm Springs. And, when the time comes for me to buy another place there I'll be calling Him.
I had a very good experience with John Jay. His work in advance of my first meeting with him allowed me to focus on the properties that I was interested in. He prepared a list of properties that he located based on my requirements, and we were able to narrow the list in a very short time. He has a very competent team that works with him, and the entire purchase process was smooth, and without stress. I heartily recommend John Jay to anyone who is interested in purchasing real estate in the Palm Springs area.
John paid attention to detail which was extremely beneficial in our purchase process. He is a top ranked realtor in the desert community. His strength of knowledge and our unique needs made it a perfect fit. He was able to accommodate our schedule. He is knowledgeable of the area and also anticipated any issue that occurred and/or handled with swift resolution. He was easy to do business with and at the end of our escrow, not only do we have a beautiful new home, we also have a friend we trust.
