Thank You For Voting JAY WHITE | Best Real Estate Agent Client Testimonial This was the best buying experience I've ever had! Jay worked a long time with me to figure out just what I wanted in a property. He has exceptional knowledge of the market and this entire area. I felt as if I were his only client. I needed advice on what exactly I should try as a bid, and he was spot on. I'd give him 6 stars if I could. You cannot possibly go wrong with him in your corner.
