As a first time home-buyer relocating to a new state, I was fortunate to have Jeffrey Whitman as my agent. He took his time and truly worked with me to find the perfect place. He has a wealth of information about what can and cannot be accomplished in a home and how difficult the task might be to bring a home up to an acceptable living condition. He is courteous and never impatient while dealing with clients during the process of settling on the right home. He has an absolutely wonderful personality coupled with a vast knowledge of home building and renovation which helps the buyer know whether or not to tackle a modification themselves, or whether an outside contractor would be wiser. He could answer any question with enthusiasm and was always willing to give a realistic picture about a house, both its positive and negative aspects. Jeff was with me through every step of the process: from knowing the local market, viewing the properties, advising on what an offer should be to have a successful outcome, negotiating, and all the way through closing (and beyond). Honestly, he made it a great experience. I cannot recommend Jeff highly enough. In my view, he has become the standard-bearer against which all other real estate agents are measured against. In fact, if I could give him 10 stars, that would be on the conservative side!
