Testimonials for Joby Slay
I would highly recommend using Joby Slay for any real estate transaction. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to work with. I recently purchased a home in Jupiter through Joby. It was listed as a short sale and required a tremendous amount of follow-up throughout the process. Since I was living in New Jersey, Joby and his team, Sally & Kimora, handled all aspects of the transaction for me. With their patience and hard work the deal closed and I got a great property at a great price. I will continue to recommend Joby to all my friends and family.
Joby helped us sell our home in a timely manner, he marketed our home wonderfully and always came by whenever there was a showing. He is extremely helpful and knowledgeable and we would recommend him to our friends and family!

"My experience with Joby as a realtor was fantastic. And for most people who go through the process of selling a home, working with a realtor can be equated to making frequent trips to the dentist! From our first meeting, throughout the entire sale process and closing, Joby went over and above the job description. He knows the local market extremely well and came to every meeting well prepared. Ultimately, Joby helped me sell my home on average by $20,000 more than any other realtor thought could be done at the time. Joby's communication was always clear with me as he continuously took the time to explain things which made the process much easier than it otherwise might have been. I also learned that Joby is an expert in the latest and most effective modern ways of marketing a home and to trust his marketing plan. I highly recommend Joby Slay for anyone buying, selling, or renting a home in south Florida."
Joby was instrumental throughout our home buying process!!! We greatly appreciated the guidance, patience, and in-depth knowledge that he exhibited. Joby was always responsive to all of our inquiries whether via telephone or email. Our situation was a unique one, being that we were living in the Bahamas during our home-buying process, which attests to Joby's excellent customer service skills because he was extremely flexible in working with our travel schedule. He is a dedicated professional that I would highly recommend to anyone!!! Because of Joby's expertise the Taylor Family now has a place to call "home!!"

When Joby asked us to write a short testimonial, I first thought, how am I ever going to make it short! Joby is a honest, hardworking, professional with one goal in mind; make his client happy while having the upmost integrity for all other parties involved. We discovered Joby via his website a year and half before we bought our home. It was a Friday night when I first submitted a request and about 15 minutes later got a personalized phone call. My husband and I have been extremely impressed very since!
Joby worked with us daily for 6 months over the internet and another 8 months in person. Every single day he dedicated his time, respected our budget, and was very determined to find all of our 'must haves' in a home. The best part, he never made me feel guilty if it was our 10th house in 3 days and I still hadn't found 'the one!' Come crunch time he was up to bat for us again, working with our mortgage broker and using his business skills to negotiate rates and all those last minute details.
After our closing, the very last thing I said to Joby was, 'Thank you SO much and that's coming from someone who doesn't even like realtors!' We've worked with many realtors, none of which we were dying to work with again. We have been lied to, misinformed, avoided for days, and left wondering who's side our realtor was actually on. Hire Joby Slay and you'll be making one of the best decisions you've ever made. We certainly did!!
