Sold a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $275K in Auburn, WA.
I live and own a law firm in Auburn, WA. I have known, worked with and recommended Jacob for many years now. Specifically, we have worked together on remodel issues, short sale analysis, mortgage and negotiable instrument review, appraisals, and deed and deeds of trust. It is invaluable for your realtor to have this collateral knowledge. He works hard at understanding his clients needs first and then works tirelessly to meet his clients expectations. Having worked in real estate for over a decade myself I have met hundreds of real estate professionals. Jacob is a "keeper" in this industry.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Maple Valley, WA.
Jacob Amy is a spectacular broker. He pointed us towards the best areas in our price range, and kept us away from those with bad schools, low chance for resale, etc. He stayed involved with us the entire time until he was able to negotiate our purchase of our dream home. I would highly recommend him as an excellent broker, professional negotiator, and just overall great person.
I had a great experience working with Jacob Amy. I would highly recommend him to anyone because he has the patience and determination to find you the right home. We were impressed by his professionalism as well as how personable he was. He had tons of valuable information and advice to pass along to us as first time home buyers. Jacob treated us like a friend and definitely had our best interests in mind. He helped us find our dream home which was just out of our price range, but talked the seller into lowering the price a bit to fit our budget! Call on Jacob if you want someone who will work hard and have your back!
I would highly recommend Jacob Amy to handle your home purchase or sale. Jacob is a straight shooter whose background as an Appraiser was very helpful in understanding the correct price at which to market our house. Jacob worked very hard to make sure that our house was properly marketed and was there every step of the way through a complicated closing process.
We interviewed several agents before signing with Jacob and we couldn't have made a better choice.
Jacob was a pleasure to work with. As a first time buyer, I went in to the process not knowing a single thing. Jacob was extremely informative and incredibly patient, taking the time to explain all the details and provide his expertise opinion. Whenever I had a question or request, he was quick to respond and always working hard around the clock. I also really appreciated his background and experience; not only is he a great agent, he is also an appraiser- which was incredibly helpful when looking at properties throughout different neighborhoods in the Seattle area. Overall, my experience in working with Jacob was absolutely amazing. I felt that he really went above and beyond to make sure my first purchase was as stress-free as possible and really was on top of all the different components from looking at listings to the handing over the keys. I would most definitely recommend him for anyone looking for a really smart and honest agent.
Working with Jacob Amy was the best decison we ever made. He is extremly knowlegeable as well as understanding. It was a blessing having him find our first home. We couldn't have asked for a better agent!
Jacob is both a real estate appraiser and an agent, so while shopping for investment properties he was able to provide me with detailed info including rental income ranges and potential long and short-term equity prospects for each home. It was clear he was well-educated on these markets, and wasn't just telling me info to make a sale. I have heard horror stories about pushy agents, but Jacob is clearly the exception as he only showed me properties that suited my specific needs, and never tried to influence my feelings, he only provided facts relating to his personal expertise.
I also have little free time so Jacob's efficiency and accuracy in locating just the right place was greatly appreciated. Excellent agent, I highly recommend him.
I really enjoyed working with Jacob. I am very picky and he was really patient and helped me find the "perfect" place! He really understood my style and what I was looking for. It was a great experience!
