You loathe typical real estate agent bios. Don’t worry, I do too. They’re like cardboard — stiff, bland, and identical to every other bio out there. Instead of boasting ad nauseum about awards and accomplishments you’re not interested in, I’m taking the novel approach of actually giving you what you want — real answers to questions you’re probably wondering right now.

Will you return my calls and emails?

Yes. Without question.
I realize this is one of the major frustrations the general public has with dealing with agents. I get dozens of calls and emails daily, and I work hard to reply as quickly as possible. My goal is typically within one business day.

I’ve met many Realtors who are jerks. Are you?

Depends on who you ask. If you ask certain agents who have stood between my clients and
their real estate goals, they’ll probably say “yes”. A handful of people think I leave golden
footprints in the sand. Those are the two extremes, and most people’s opinion falls somewhere
in the middle. Here’s what I can tell you: I’m honest and candid. I take pride in being approachable and
friendly. And if you need a quick real estate brain, or a strong dose of honesty, you’re in the right
place. Loyalty to family, clients, and friends is one of my core values. Want to really find out if
I’m a jerk? Mess with one of those people.

Do You have experience doing exactly what I need?

Until you tell me what you need, there is no way of knowing.
These are “strong suits” of mine:

  • Working with new buyers
  • First time sellers
  • USDA / FHA
  • Investment and Rental properties
  • Property Management / Tenant Menagement

If your goal or situation isn’t represented on that list, don’t worry. Contact me anyway. If I can’t help, I can get you referred to an another agent who can.

What kind of work are you really good at?

On a personal level, I’m pretty good at making wine. My pomegranate Zinfandel is amazing I’m told. I’m also pretty good at kayaking, hiking, and in general being outdoors. I’m also really good at giving back to my community because community and culture is important to me and our long term well being as a race.

On a professional level, here are the skill-sets that I’ve developed over the years:

  • Listening. Unfortunately, it’s a lost art these days.
  • Detail oriented. I know everyone says this but I’m pretty obsessive and a bit of a perfectionist.
  • Organized. This is so important in real estate. Even a little disorganization can ruin a deal.

What do clients think of you?

My clients are better suited to answer this for you. Here’s what some of them have said
Jay was always prompt…
Jay was always prompt and courteous in communications. He spoke with clear intentions. I am grateful for his professional knowledge and expertise that helped make an already stressful situation enjoyable. Thank you
Jay will ask you…
Jay will ask you to do two things, Provide him with your pre-approval letter and tell him what you want most in a home. After that, you really don't have to do anything. I know that last statement is not entirely true, but it feels that way. He covers everything! He answers all of your questions. He takes fear and uncertainty out of the process. This allows you to relax and enjoy the entire experience. He gave me a book at the first showing, "The Ultimate Home Buyer's Guide", by Jay Mattlin. This became a valued reference guide. Bravo!! Take the time to read it, often. Jay is with you every step of the way. From the first showing to the last. Putting in an offer. Explaining every detail of the contract. Attending the home inspection. Negotiating a price reduction as a result of the home inspection. Providing a timeline for your reference during the process. When you are on this journey to purchase a home. You soon realize, you have a team, mortgage broker, insurance agent and your realtor. Jay is the team captain. Yesterday, this single woman became a homeowner. I could not have done that without Jay Mattlin.
Jay is an accomplished…
