Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Charlotte, NC.
I purchased a home with J in Sept 2014. He was extremely knowledgeable and patiently walked myself and my wife through the home buying process. He quickly responds to emails/ phone calls and was able to negotiate our closing costs down to where we were comfortable making the purchase. He is pleasure to work with and highly recommended.

Thank you for your kind words! It was my pleasure to assist you both with your new home!
This realtor was extremely professional and responsive to all our needs, down to the smallest details. His knowledge of the area, market and market trends was quite impressive and extreme helpful. J Arlegui made himself available at all times and provided us with the resources and services we needed to complete out transaction. This is our 3rd home purchase transaction and to date by far the best experience thanks to J Arlegui. I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone in the market for a realtor.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Charlotte, NC.
When we decided to purchase our first home, we were referred to the help of J. Arlegui with Keller Williams Realty and Brandon Watts with Monarch Mortgage - and thankfully so, because they made this process easy and fast!
J.'s familiarity of the area we were looking to buy in, combined with his understanding of our 'wish list' and price range made our home search a breeze, while Brandon's in-depth knowledge the mortgage process made the purchase quick and painless.
Both J. and Brandon were professional, always readily available, and worked together as a great team to help us select and buy our home.
Thank you both for all you did to help make our dream of owning our first home a reality!!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Gastonia, NC.
My husband and I first met J in 2006 when he was working with our then buyers agent. We had an immediate connection with J and appreciated his openness and honesty with us during our home search. Over the years we stayed in touch with J. Fast forward seven years and we we were prepared to sell our home and finally buy the home of our dreams. We were very excited to call J and ask for his assistance! J spent lots of personal and quality time with us, helping to prepare our home to list, stage, etc. We couldn't have been more pleased with how J's photos/listing turned out. In just three short weeks, we accepted an offer on our home. J then helped us to make an offer on our dream house, and a one month later, we are writing this review from the comfort of our new home! Working with J was a WONDERFUL experience. J is extremely knowledgeable and professional. His negotiation skills are invaluable. We highly recommend J to any potential buyers and/or sellers.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Dallas, NC.
J was awesome to work with. He was our agent during selling our home and buying our new home. We really enjoyed working with him. We would most definitely recommend him and use him in the future. He made the whole buying and selling process seem so easy, we had no worries, we knew we were in good hands.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Dallas, NC.
J took over an agent we first had. He took us to much more expensive houses than the first agent did, then he said they gave a lower range first because some people wanted to buy more expensive houses than they could afford. I asked a mortgage broker who worked with J to clarify this reason because I felt awkward, but never got a clear answer. Then he asked us our preferences, but later he completely forgot about it and did the opposite. Then he texted me the interest rate which was really good. But it turned out that the real rate was 0.5 higher than what he told me. I still bought a house from him. It is a nice house with a good deal, but I feel I was rushed into decision and now I regret buying it (but this part is not his fault. I was a first time buyer and naive, too).
Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in Charlotte, NC.
J has been a great help in getting our house prepared for selling. Compared to other lake house specialists, the kind of service he offers as the seller’s agent is above and beyond the norm. Being a remote seller, we feel very comfortable that our property is in good hands. He is resourceful and responsive. Consistently, I found his suggestions prudent and sensible. I would highly recommend J for anyone who is selling a high end property, particularly one on water front.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Denver, NC.
J and his team kept me informed weekly about showings on our home. When the house went under contract I was updated daily as to the progress of the loan status, inspections and appraisals. J went above and beyond on negotiating the contract and repairs. I was very happy with the sale price of our house and the closing went very smoothly. We live out of town and we were able to sign all documents and send to the attorney's office without having to make a trip back for closing.
I highly recommend J Arlegui as a listing agent or a buyers agent!
