We started our property search over a year ago with a long list of requirements for our first house purchase. Jacob Smith and his team were so patient and helpful during the long search, and when we finally found a home that checked off all the boxes, Jacob stepped up to bat for us every step of the way. He helped us put together offers on holiday weekends, formulate desperate response letters at 10 PM, met us for house showings early on weekends, and helped us through [...]
Jacob worked with our daughter and son-in-law and found them their perfect home in Winooski and when it was our turn to find our forever home, we chose Jacob to be our buyer agent. From the time we started seriously working with Jacob, it took us only a month to sign a contract on our perfect home. Jacob was both personable and professional whenever we met with him or spoke with him over the telephone. He always got back [...]
Jacob is a joy to work with. He quickly got an eye for what was important to us. And made some excellent recommendations in the process. He was never pushy to close, he was genuinely concerned for our satisfaction with the home buying process. I don't plan to move again, but if I do, I will definitely call Jacob again.
Jacob was very friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible. We looked for places in several different towns around the Burlington area and Jacob was able to work with our tight schedule and still show us many great options. We would highly recommend him!
Jacob was wonderful to work with and handled a fairly difficult transaction with the utmost professionalism. I will most definitely reach out to him again when I buy another investment property.
Jacob was a great support for us in the purchase of our new home. We needed to maneuver quickly as we incorporated studio space and our residence into a new build home, doing so all within the same day. He was responsive and helped us get all the stars to align. We love our new home and totally recommend working with Jacob.
Jacob and his team were a pleasure to work with from my initial inquiry phone call to his office throughout closing. I live across the country from the property I sold through Jacob and communication was prompt the entire time. He is knowledgeable about the area and his team employed an aggressive and effective marketing campaign to sell my unique property for a competitive price in a reasonable amount of time. I would use Jacob's [...]
Jacob was fantastic during the long process of finding and eventually closing on a property. There were many complications in the process and Jacob handled it all in stride. He is very knowledgeable and was integral to keeping my sanity. We saw multiple properties over the previous year before closing on the right property. His patience was greatly appreciated!
We love working with Jacob! He helped us find our starter home and then recently found our second forever home. Jacob is very easy to talk to, responsive, and knowledgeable. He helped us navigate a particularly tricky selling and buying situation with lots of moving pieces and it all went incredibly smoothly. I highly recommend him!
Jacob Smith was beyond helpful when it came to buying my first home here in beautiful Vermont. He dealt with my many questions and always answered my phone calls. His insight to home ownership and his suggestions were very valuable. I would 100% recommend this team. Thank you guys!
