It was a pleasure to work with Jay. He is knowledgeable, thorough, patient and personable. Jay worked within our budget to help us find a place that ticked off many boxes for us. We're very grateful for his time and expertise. - Kelly Harrison
Reply: The Gazeley Real Estate Group strives to provide our clients with the highest level of service. In our business, we are fortunate to enjoy the opportunity to work with many diverse people and groups. We appreciate and relish each relationship. This specific relationship happened and transpired starting from a 20-minute introduction at an open house to a fantastic journey of cottage searches and friendship. Together with my business partner and brother Sean, we look forward to continuing our friendship and we are very grateful and honoured to be working for both you and Ian. With thanks, Jay & Sean
Jay Gazeley (and his brother and business partner Sean) were recommended to us by a friend who is also in Real Estate in Ottawa. Right from the beginning they came across as professional, likeable, experienced and genuine. We truly appreciate the thorough explanations, the market data research they and their team conducted, as well as the advice and expertise they shared with us. Our home showed very nicely. Their team and other professional contacts (photography/videography) did an excellent job marketing our home. Jay and Sean ensured there was plenty of foot traffic in the few short days our home was on the market. It resulted it multiple offers and very happy clients. Thanks Jay and Sean for all of your hard work!! We wouldn't change a thing :) - John Godbout
Reply: Thanks, John for the very kind words. It was our pleasure working with you and Agathe. Our clients mean the world to us and we were pleased that our defined selling system and our great team once again delivered great results! All the best in Ottawa! Jay & Sean
We had a great experience with Jay Gazeley during the process of finding a new home. We are newcomers and Jay took all the time necessary to explain the process step by step, and also was very dedicated to find the house that fitted our needs as a family. Jay was much more than just a real state agent, we were able (and still do) ask any question we had related to the house, schools, or any other related topic. He was always honest and supportive all the way through. I would definitely recommend them if you need a real state agent. - Macarena Fernandez
Reply: Congratulations Maca and Raul on your home purchase! It was my pleasure to work with each of you to find the right home for your family! We were able to tick all the search boxes and find your family a beautiful home situated in a great neighborhood, close to schools and parks! I'm very happy for both of you - congrats!
Jay has been an absolute godsend for us in our home search. As first time home buyers, and being new to Canada, Jay was dedicated, gave us fantastic advice, was always available, a font for resources and most importantly exceedingly friendly and knowledgeable. Through multiple sessions he got to know us, understand what we were looking for, and was able to narrow down and advise us on what the best decision for us could be. Extremely happy with where we landed, and would recommend Jay to absolutely anyone looking to buy a home. - Asmer Saifi
Reply: Thank you Asmer for your kind words. I have enjoyed every part of the journey with your family. In the beginning, we worked together so that you and your family found a nice home to rent. With this security of a home in place, at the right time, we then began the process of finding the right home. There was no rush. We worked through a systemized approach. We found the right home, in the right neighbourhood and at the right price. I'm thrilled for you and your family and appreciate your kind words.
We have had the pleasure of Jay Gazeley assisting us in the purchase of our new home. We feel he has gone over the top to make our purchase from afar seamless. Jay seems like a person you can trust and will go out of his way to make his clients feel comfortable, especially during these Covid times. Covid has put such pressure on people working in the private sector and we all know that is is hard to meet and greet. Jay found ways to make the process comfortable and to achieve the end goal. He always made himself available for questions and concerns, following up expeditiously, providing feedback and updates. We highly recommend Jay to friends and family because we are comfortable that he would provide the same service as he provided us. Even after the sale, he has been in contact to provide additional information and referrals/contacts for services we required. Highly recommended! - Rosmarie Seguin and Darcy Wolframe
Reply: Thank you, Rose and Darcy, for putting your trust in me throughout your real estate purchase. It was a pleasure working with both of you! Please be assured that I'm still here to answer any questions that you may have, offer support, or lend a hand. Congratulations!
Dear Jay, Thank you so much for all of your work and help with buying and selling houses. It was a bit of a process within a challenging market, and I greatly appreciate your expertise and patience through it all. Your communication was top-notch, as you were always available to make inquiries, answer questions and give sound advice to guide me toward a well thought-out decision. I feel you went the extra mile to make sure we achieved the most successful result possible. It was a pleasure working with you and I would highly recommend your services to my friends and family. Thank you! - Heather Nicholson
Reply: Heather, thank you for your kind words. It was my pleasure to work with you selling your home and then buying your new family home. Selling a home and then buying a home requires trust in the process. We worked together with a defined plan for selling your existing home and buying a home. Nothing was left to chance. The selling process has many defined steps. Our steps for your home included a staging consultation. The staging insight gave us many recommendations. We then tailored the recommendations to meet your needs. We executed the improvements and then put our marketing plan into action. We had tremendous results and a smooth offer process. Buying a home also requires a defined plan. The plan included a specific set of criteria for the search. We worked with the criteria. We made adjustments when needed. The end result was a successful buy that was on budget and fit your closing needs. I wish you and your family many years of happiness in your new home. Enjoy the pool!
When the time came to look for a house for our parents, Jay took on the challenge and the responsibility. They were making the move to Kingston as they needed to be closer to us for support due to growing health concerns. This was not an easy decision for them, so we wanted their place in Kingston to be as perfect as possible. Jay knew we needed a bungalow, relatively close to our place and the rest of my long list of must haves. From the outset, Jay was focused on finding the right house for our parents, not just closing a deal and selling us a house. He truly listened to what we liked and disliked from the various homes we toured. He offered options of new builds versus existing homes. He never pressured us to move beyond our budget. At the time we were looking, the market definitely favoured sellers and not buyers so he promptly suggested homes he thought would be suitable as soon as they came onto the market. Although the time from viewing the home to presenting an offer was a matter of hours, he made sure we were comfortable with our decision. There was no pressure or sales tactics. Before closing, he arranged for trips back to the home for contractors to tour through for renovations we had planned. After closing, he didn’t drop off the face of the earth. When our contractor bailed at the last minute, Jay came through again by using his contacts to find another contractor who has been amazing! It is apparent that this profession is relationship based to him, not transactional. Our previous real estate experience in Kingston with a different realtor many years ago was much different. We always felt there was an angle, and we were just a potential sale and money to be made. We were not at the centre of the process, it was the realtors working together to make a sale and if we were not represented properly in the process, so be it. We never felt like this with Jay. Throughout the process, ethics and honesty were always at the forefront of everything he did. But that is who Jay is; an honest, ethical person who listens and cares. He is also well versed on the ins and outs of the real estate profession he consciously chose to be a part of. Without hesitation, we recommend future homebuyers reach out to Jay Gazeley for their real estate needs! - Sabena Islam
