Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Geneva, IL.
Cory was a great help during the first-time home purchase. He patiently showed us many models that were in our primary location of interest. He was honest when evaluating positive and negative aspects of a home. No pressure was ever applied to make an offer. When we did locate one that appeared to fit, we had the relationship foundation that he could say this was the right choice and price point for value. I would highly recommend Cory to anyone purchasing in the Fox Valley.

Bought a home in 2012.
Cory was great to work with, he showed us about 10 houses in a matter of 2 weeks and really honed in on exactly the type of home we were looking for. The house was a short sale, so we knew things could get a bit dicey (and they did) but Cory helped us navigate through the whole process. At the end of the day everything worked out - we closed on the house in about 3 months - it took awhile, but that's what we bargained for with a short sale. Cory did a great job working with all the banks, lenders, inspectors, realtors, & lawyers to get the deal closed.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Wheaton, IL.
It was a pleasure working with Cory during the process of buying our first home. He was very honest with us about the pros and cons about every property we saw together. Anytime we were interested in placing a bid, he gave a very straight-forward view of what he thought the property was truly worth, and where we should start the bid at. This was especially helpful for property virgins like ourselves. Having this knowlege gave us confidence to stay away from any bidding wars that started to creep above our desired price. He was always flexible on times to look at prospective houses, and wouldn't hesistate to tell us any downfalls about the house, neighborhood, or any renovation work he thought would get us in over our heads. From our experience, we would recommend Cory Jones as a Buyer's Agent to anyone. His professional expertise made buying our first home an easy and rewarding process for us.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Geneva, IL.
Cory is a true real-estate professional. From the first contact with my fiancee, to spending hours touring homes with her, to helping with the final negotiations with the buyers, he went above and beyond.

In the early stages of our home search, he helped us dial-in to find the best location for us. He knew the area that we were purchasing in well, and was willing to take us to as many homes as we wanted. We never felt rushed, and he knew when to be quiet, and when to point out something that we missed about a particular home. He also gave us his full attention while we were looking at homes. We started to feel bad about making him go through all of these houses with us, but he never complained or made us feel like we were doing it wrong.

When we finally did pick a house, things moved quickly. He was there to answer questions and never failed to answer a text, email, or return a phone call within a short amount of time. We always felt like he had our best interests in mind with the entire process.

As closing approached he helped us get some results on some last minute repairs and even assisted us in contacting the sellers for some property that they inadvertently took with them. The home buying process was great from beginning to end, and I'm confident that a lot of that was because we had Cory at our side. ----- After purchasing our home, we also had Cory list and sell our previous home. In this market, it is not easy to get a house sold, but Cory was always there for us moving things forward. We relied on his expertise for pricing, marketing, negotiating and getting feedback from Realtors that showed the house.

We did have a contract pretty early in our process, but financing was a problem for the buyer and Cory was always on top of things, contacting the lender and the buyer's agent to keep things moving along. I'm sure I called to complain to him many times that the buyers were dragging their feet and that the banks weren't moving fast enough, and he always took the time to listen to me, even when things were out of his control. That contract fell through but after re-listing we finally got the home sold.

Again, Cory's expertise and communication skills are what sets him apart from the rest of the Realtors in the area. He's not only a great Realtor, but a great person. Thanks Cory!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Saint Charles, IL.
A friend from college highly recommended Cory when my family and I made the decision to move to the Chicago suburbs. I am a skeptic when it comes to hiring anyone for their services, but Cory quickly proved that he was knowledgeable not only about the far western suburbs, but also the towns, cities and villages that closely surround Chicago.

Up front, we told him exactly how much we could afford and he never emailed or showed us a house that was more than that. We told him we wanted to move to Downers Grove, Naperville or Glen Ellyn and that we wanted an older, remodeled home near a downtown. He made it clear on day one that we wouldn't get the house we wanted for the price we were able to pay. Despite that, he happily and patiently showed us an endless list of homes that were in our price range in those three cities and encouraged us to keep looking in those locations. But none of the homes were close to what we had envisioned buying.

Considering our budget, Cory convinced us to try the Tri-City area (St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia), where we found a beautifully restored 1880s Victorian near the Fox River that was below our budgeted price. We never thought we would live in such a historic home. It’s close to the Fox River, restaurants, shops, downtown St. Charles and only two blocks from my son’s school. It’s perfect.

Cory also utilized his network of inspectors, mortgage brokers and other real estate professionals to help us along to closing day. If you are looking to move to the western suburbs, you won’t find anyone who knows more about the current real estate market, and who has the network of real estate professionals that Cory has. If we decide to sell our house when we retire, Cory will definitely get a call back from us.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Saint Charles, IL.
We were referred to Cory via our mortgage broker and couldn't have been happier with our experience with Cory! He listened to everything we were looking for and made looking for homes easy and stress free. His knowledge of the area we were looking in was extensive and really helped us in the desision making processes. From negotiating to walking us thru the steps of closing and being on our side every step of the way we wouldn't have wanted to work with anyone else, Cory made buying our first home a great experience!!!

Bought a home in 2013.
Cory Jones is a laid back type of guy who is friendly and knows the every aspect of the process. When we went through Cory he makes the process as comfortable as possible, he will refer you to someone to help with your needs on a property. He tries his best to get things done. Truly, a good experience for me and my wife.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in St Charles, IL.
Cory took us to over 35 homes and never pressured us or made us feel as if we were wasting his time. When we finally found the right place, he did an amazing job with negotiations! I am so excited about our new home and know it wouldn't be a reality without the experience and skills of Cory! If you're looking to move to the St. Charles (or surrounding) area, Cory is the guy you want to work with!
