I hired Mr. Jacobus to sell my home due to my family living out of state. When we spoke and met initially he seemed like a great fit. After a few months on the market, I received an auto feedback response that potential clients did not want to go in because the home looked so bad. Upon contacting Mr. Jacobus, he went to the residence to check it out. The landscaping was not being done as promised. Mr. Jacobus never set eyes on the property like was in the contract, he continually stated that we needed to make more and more updates, despite knowing we were financially unable to do so. He offer to have his friends come take care of certain issues for an absurd prices ( such as taking care of the lawn - about 300 dollars to cut and weed flower beds). He did not meet any expectations that he set forth. He was very poor at negotiating when potential offers were on the table. I would not recommend Mr. Jacobus to anyone who is not living within traveling distance of checking on their property.
I am surprised to read this review. Mr. Stewart expressed his appreciation many times for all the trips I made to the property ,consulting with him on improvements needed, checking on the property & meeting contractors there for him 7 times. The most significant defect was a block basement garage wall which was bowed in 4 inches. I advised that the wall would need fixed as neither a buyer nor an inspector would accept it. Not fixing it did cost us a buyer. I advised several times he was priced higher than similar homes, if he couldn’t reduce the price he should rent it. I offered to cancel the listing agreement to allow him to rent it. I referred J&J Basements for the wall repair & Reichle Brothers Landscaping for lawn care. Two of the best (and competitively priced) in their respective businesses. Again, I am surprised at Mr. Stewart’s review, he was always congenial and never expressed dissatisfaction with the market updates, my advice on repairs or that we had 34 showings.
