Let Jay be the right REALTOR®

"Does choosing the right real estate agent really make a difference? Absolutely! Being able to create activity on your property requires an agent with a natural ability to think and market outside-the-box".

But how do you choose? Usually a seller starts by getting referrals from friends or colleagues then sets up a few interviews. Not all REALTOR® S® are created equal. Jay approaches it as if he's applying for a job. He prepares with references, testimonials, educational history, related work experience as well as a copy of a customized marketing campaign. The whole idea is you want to find an agent whose personal style fits with yours plus also one you feel confident is a hard worker, is knowledgeable and has a successful track record. After all, your home is your single largest asset.

How He Sets Himself Apart...

Jay is a top sales performer and has been amongst the top 5% of Homelife agents in all of Canada! His name is trusted because he strongly prescribes to on-going training and personal development. It's like how other professionals endure: whether it's an athlete, accountant, mechanic, firefighter etc... you name the profession. Most agents will maintain the minimum requirements necessary to remain licensed. Jay regularly puts aside time in his busy schedule to attend as many Real Estate educational courses and marketing/customer service seminars as he possibly can.

Another important attribute to look for in choosing your next real estate agent is the quantity and quality of their relationships, both professional and personal. As a long time local resident and REALTOR® ® he has quite a large database of contacts and people who kindly endorse his services which to you means more potential Buyers for your property.

Regular involvement and networking within the business community as well as with his peers is been another means of attracting abundant leads. Jay have been involved in service clubs such as Rotary and the Executive for the local division of the Real Estate Board as well as a Director on both the Salmon Arm Chamber of Commerce and on the Salmon Arm Downtown Improvement Association (DIA). Jay's roots are deep here.



My Non-Traditional Marketing Plan...

"My services extend much further than putting a sign on the lawn and placing an ad in the paper, ++I++ can provide you with all kinds of staging and makeover strategies plus other ideas to improve curb appeal and ultimately improve the resale value of your property!"

Jay isn't your average agent and he works on breaking the mold every day. His approach is different than most. Often Sellers call even though they are not yet ready to sell their home, because they want information to help them make the right decision down the road. That's fine: Jay's goal is just to get the information out there and make the real estate process smoother for everyone by creating more educated consumers. He's pleased to be able to give you the tools you need to maximize your profit, maintain control, and reduce the stress that comes with the home-selling process. Please call Jay and ask about his 20 Point Marketing Plan Of Action!

The Most Common Questions Jay Gets Are...

  1. "What are the market conditions like right now?"
  2. "How long will it take for my home to sell?
  3. "What do I need to do to prepare my home for sale?"
  4. "Is my tax assessment an indication of fair market value?"
  5. "How much do you charge?"
  6. "What kind of advertising do you do?"
  7. "Do you show your listings or use Buyer's agent?"
  8. "Will you negotiate your commission?"

Other things that set Jay apart are things like his Personal Service Guarantee: he believes if you are not happy with the level of service provided you should be able to fire your agent! Does this sound like your average agent speaking? He doesn't believe in signing lengthy listing contracts either and also puts a limit on the amount of listings he takes so as to not spread himself to thin. This way he can show your home IN PERSON. No home is too big or too small to receive his utmost attention.

Real Estate Fees Are Completely Negotiable!

There are no set or standard fees in this business, thanks to the laws of consumer protection and the spirit of open competition. As a co-owner of a real estate company, Homelife Salmon Arm Realty, Jay has the luxury of flexibility and complete control over the commission fees charged to help you sell your home. He is more than fair with everyone which probably partly explains all the repeat business and referrals he sees coming back his way.
