"I started looking in the East Bay for a house a couple years ago and was lucky to find Jason. We are located in another state but our kids live in the East Bay. As it turned out it took a couple years for us to be ready to purchase a property. During that time Jason was very generous with his time in showing us any property we wanted to see, even though he knew we likely were not ready to buy. When we were in a position to buy, Jason supported us in any way possible, always being available, day or night, to take calls to discuss our situation and provide us advice. Through Jason we located exactly what we were looking for and were successful in purchasing the property in the face of numerous competing offers.
We subsequently attempted to purchase a second property as a rental in Oakland. Although the property was advertised as a "compete remodel" and everything appeared to be new, Jason urged us to make our offer contingent on an inspection, negotiated an acceptance of our offer, and then found us a top inspector on short notice to examine the property. It turned out that the sellers had made cosmetic improvements to the property which covered up numerous defects in the property which were discovered through our inspection. Once this was discovered, Jason handled everything involved with cancelling the Purchase and Sale Agreement and obtaining return of our deposit.
In both transactions Jason was with us every step of the way, protecting our interests, generous with his time, and willing to anything necessary to help us find and purchase a property. We could not have been happier with the service he provided to us. We now consider him a friend and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a real estate agent in the East Bay, anywhere in the Bay Area."
"Jason Ellis is an outstanding real estate agent in the greater Bay Area. He recently helped me buy my first house and as a first time home buyer he always kept me involved and prepared throughout the entire process. I greatly recommend Jason. He was a true pleasure to work with. Thank you!!"
"Jason was our agent helping us buy a home in the east bay. He is very personable and I found it a pleasure to work with him. We were first time home buyers and had a lot of questions, but Jason walked us through it. He was available and responded immediately to all my communications, day or night. When our bank's appraisal fell short of the offered price, he was able to negotiate a new price with the sellers that met our needs. I would recommend his help to anyone looking for easy guidance with the buying process."
