Before we started working with Jon, I saw that he had a ton of excellent reviews.- almost suspiciously so in their quantity and level of praise. I was skeptical that anyone could live up to that degree of acclaim but he was recommended to us by a friend so we gave it a go. Jon’s knowledge of the market, proficiency with sales strategies, and confidence along the way was invaluable. Our buying experience with the sellers was incredibly difficult. The sellers were unprepared at every step, their agent inept and overwhelmed, and every day that passed presented more unexpected challenges and deceptive communications from the sellers’ side.  Augmenting this situation was the fact that this was occurring in March, right as COVID was beginning to wreak havoc with everyone’s plans, but Jon, Madeline, and the rest of the CRES team were incredibly dedicated to getting our sale finalized. I honestly don’t know what we would have done if we’d been working with other realtors, but I’m certain it would not have concluded as well as it did. Jon was also amazing with the sale of our old house. Given the COVID environment, Jon was prepared with a virtual home tour plan to overcome the obvious challenge of showing houses during global pandemics. Being able to adapt quickly and anticipate market needs meant that Jon was able to list our house at the worst possible time and still receive an over-list offer in hand 36 hours later.  So yeah, here’s another 5 star review and glowing endorsement. CRES deserves it and I couldn’t be happier to recommend him. As cheesy as it sounds, we really felt like Jon was more of a friend who was helping us sell our house, rather than an agent working for his clients. My wife and I were a little bummed when things were finalized because it meant an end to our regular chats with Jon!
