I have now bought two houses with Jay as my agent and I wouldn't use anyone else. Jay is knowledgeable, honest, and professional. He definitely looks out for his clients' best interest. I highly recommend him!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.225M in Market-Downtown, Kirkland, WA.

My husband and I had a fantastic experience with Jay! He was very helpful and informative. Jay took the time to get to know us and what are needs were and made us feel like we were always a priority. He was honest and available even when we were unavailable! We were based in California and not always able to look at home and properties and Jay would tour the homes and give us his thoughts and opinions. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone and we will use him for any future real estate transactions.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $575K in Interlake, Bellevue, WA.

My siblings and I recently lost both parents within a 2 year period. After the death of our father, we were fortunate to be able to keep our Mom in the family home. Upon losing our Mom, it was decided to sell our family home. This was a devastating time in each of our lives, but having Jay as our agent truly gave us peace of mind. There are many reasons for selling a home, ours was a tragic one- and Jay understood this. He gave us the confidence to move forward with the sale of the house, giving me and my siblings all of the information we needed every step of the way. He was really helpful in his honest approach to maximizing the appeal of our home, informing us how best to prepare our home for the market; this was instrumental to us- as none of us had ever put a home on the market. As I mentioned earlier, this was a difficult time for us and Jay treated us with respect and dignity- while maintaining his other many listings. We always felt as though we came first. In these fast times, with the volume of homes on the market, his personal attention was refreshing. So many times, I have had experiences where I felt as though I had been put on the "back burner" in business dealings, so to speak. In these times, the housing market is really hot. Real estate agents have so much on their plates, they have no room to breathe. My parents home was not a mansion, it was just a modest rambler, but Jay treated it with the same importance as any of his higher priced listings- and for that we will always be grateful. If you are looking for an agent who will work tirelessly for you and truly help to maximize your investment, I would strongly encourage you to consider Jay Agoado as your Real Estate agent.

Bought a home in 2014 in Overlake, Bellevue, WA 98005.

We just moved to Greater Seattle area and knew Jay based on a referral from our listing agent. Jay helped us purchase a property on the Eastside where there were multiple offers on houses in the highly competitive market and we were very pleased with the service he provided. Jay is a proven professional who knows the neighborhoods well. Living in Seattle for his whole life, he was able to give us pros and cons of all the neighborhoods and houses in the areas. When requesting the viewings, he promptly showed us houses and provided general information as well as his analysis. He pointed out pros and cons of houses we considered buying. He would not try to convince us to purchase any house and he had our best interest in mind; his goal was to help us find the perfect home for our family. For us, schools and geographical areas were our primary focuses. He knew what we were looking for and he worked with us to find the neighborhood and house we wanted to live in within the budget. He went well above and beyond by being present for our home inspections, and doing his best to make an offer and work with the listing agent to close the deal. Jay is not only a great communicator/negotiator, but also a tech savvy who uses new technology and social media. He is obviously one of the best real estate agent in the area and we would highly recommend him to represent either buyers or sellers.

Thank you so much for the kind words. It was such a pleasure getting to know you through the process and I'm very glad that you were able to find a home that matched their school requirements.

Sold a home in 2014 in Mercer Island Town, Mercer Island, WA 98040.

It was a pleasure working with Jay Agoado in selling our home. He is knowledgable, responsive, and extremely customer service oriented. He always responded to my emails, texts and phone calls immediately, answered my many questions, and walked me through every step of the process. He provided many recommendations regarding what to do to get the house ready for sale, as well as who to call to get things done quickly and competently-always keeping in mind my needs and price range.

He is honest and personable, and he made the sales process as stress-free as possible. Every single person I worked with during the sales process said that Jay is amazing- that he is a true professional and is wonderful to work with. I highly recommend Jay Agoado and would love to work with him again in the future!

Bought a home in 2014 in Victoria Park, Renton, WA 98055.

I just bought my first home with Jay. He was very helpful during the whole process. I was so impressed by how responsive he was at any time of day - even when he was on vacation. He really went the extra mile with any concern/question I had and made the whole process of buying a home much easier than anticipated. He's very knowledgable, friendly, and a great guy to work with! A would recommend him to anyone!

Bought a home in 2014 in Finn Hill, Kirkland, WA 98034.

I recently worked with Jay to purchase my very first home and couldn't be happier with the helpfulness and knowledge Jay brought to make my first time buying a home less painful. Jay went above and beyond to help me get into the right home, being available 24/7, quick to write up paperwork, and quick and clear with his communication on any actions I needed to take. He ensured my understanding of the overall home buying process and was thoughtful in what would work for me and my needs. He helped me in understanding what types of things to look at when viewing a home and was open, honest, and even critical when necessary of places I viewed.

The first home I offered on ended up having the deal fall through very last minute due to several issues with the mortgage advisor I was working with at the time. Jay recommended another lender, Brian Calvo, who was able to help me get better loan terms and who was able to close our deal very quickly in 3 weeks with no headaches or extra effort on my part.

Overall, I can't thank Jay enough for his help in my first home purchase. Although there were issues beyond his control, he went above and beyond to help me get into a home and I felt that he was really passionate and caring of me and my situation. He treated me as I would imagine he would his own family or best friend instead of a customer. I would definitely recommend Jay to anyone I know and will look to work with Jay again when the time comes to buy or sell another home.

Jay is an expert in the area. He knows King Country very well, and in my opinion this is the most important thing you can get from having an agent. He can give you lots of detailed information about the neighborhood and the property that you are seeing.

He is also very organized, and professional. On each viewing he prepares a catalog of properties that you are visiting with very useful information.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Green Lake, Seattle, WA.

Jay was a pleasure to work with. As a first time home owner, buying a home was totally new territory for me. Jay was extremely understanding and helpful, walking me through all the details and explaining the many parts of the process that I was unfamiliar with. His expertise was invaluable throughout, and with Jay’s advice and input I felt that I was able to make intelligent, informed decisions about the various aspects of the venture.

It helped that Jay was very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods of the city. I was looking in areas of the city that were not his focus, but he still had in-depth knowledge of the neighborhoods, and his general expertise meant that he could provide useful input regardless.

Best of all, Jay was extremely responsive. He was always quick to respond to emails and texts, even when he was out of town on business or vacation. This was especially important when the time came to actually put together an offer on a house. The areas I was looking at were in high demand, with houses typically staying on the market for days at most. When I found a home that I was interested in, Jay was able to view the house with me at extremely short notice and put together an offer for it.

I would highly recommend Jay to anyone looking to buy a home!

It was great getting to know you while looking for homes! You always seemed to be in competition with others but you prevailed! Enjoy your new home and community, especially during the summer!

I am glad I was able to help you with the selling of your home. It's always difficult to sell the home that you raised your family in but you were great to work with and I'm sure you will be very happy with your new setting.
