Team reviews

The Jacobus real estate team was with me every step of the way through the selling process. John gave me good advice on what improvements to make before putting the home on the market. The marketing coordinator and office manager scheduled the digital pictures for the internet, kept me up to date on when the home was to be placed on the market and who would receive postcards and other advertisements. The selling agent obtained an offer for an amount above the asking price within 4 business days of the home going on the market. Once the home was in contract, the closing coordinator contacted me almost daily to keep me informed of what I needed to provide, who would be coming to the home (i.e. appraisers, inspectors, etc..), and what the buyers were working on. During the entire process, John answered my questions and provided the expertise of his negotiating skills. John also has a good understanding of the local market in Delaware county and what selling price was possible. At one point, I needed a minor roofing repair completed in a very short time period. I was unable to find a roofing company that was available to do the work because of recent heavy rains. John used in contacts and found a local roofer who came out and completed the repair prior to the appraisal. It was a pleasure to work with the Jacobus Real Estate team. I would recommend them to anyone selling a home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Westerville, OH.

John and his team got the impossible done for us! We weren't even looking for a new house, let alone, ready to sell ours. However, a friend sent us a link of a house and we fell in love with it. I immediately called John and he had us in the house the next day with Sue. Of course, we loved it. But we had a bigger problem. Our house wasn't even on the market yet. John was very honest and told us not to expect the sellers to accept our offer with a contingency for us to sell our house. They didn't. But John was able to negotiate 2 weeks for him to sell our house. We were naturally scared and didn't think we would end up getting it. How in the world can John sell out house in two weeks!?!?! He walked through our house and told us what we needed to do. We got it all done and John listed our house on a Thursday. By Monday, we had 4 offers and they were in a bidding war. We couldn't believe it. John and his team got it done and got it done wel! The entire experience was better than what we could have hoped for. An absolutely excellent team with the knowledge and skills needed to get it done!!! We can't thank you enough!!!  More Less

Bought a home in 2015 in Bristol, New Lexington, OH 43764.

We bought in an area that was out side his area but he had contacts and worked on this land deal very professionally. He was kind and informative when my son and spouse met with him. If we buy or sell again I would stay with John Jacobus and would refer family and friends to him also. Thank you
