Regarding Sale of Home, Blooming Grove, NY  December 2022:

“Selling a house is not always fun. However, working with Jacob Matthews is. He is helpful in all aspects of the process and is particularly knowledgeable with antique and unique properties such as mine. As a result of Jacob’s work and positioning with the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, we achieved a selling price that was substantially higher than area comparables.   He was helpful in supplying all the information requested in selling the house. Working with Jacob is a pleasure and a success! I thank him and hope you will too.”

Regarding Purchase of Home, Pierson Lakes (Sloatsburg, NY).  November, 2020:

“My wife and I met Jake when, after a decent stretch of living in New York City’s circle of bedroom communities, we had decided to relocate to a more woodsy, serene area. Not only were we blissfully unaware of the panoply of

available options and communities but, more importantly, “babes in the woods” in terms of process with its myriad of legal, financing, tax, commuting and assorted other “gotchas.” The more we trudged into it the more it became painfully obvious this wasn’t going to be a stroll in the park. This is how we learned to distinguish between a “real estate person” and a “REAL REAL ESTATE PERSON.” Over several months Jake had tirelessly dug through what must have been hundreds of properties to suggest the ideal one. Finally we focused on a property in the very picturesque area around Tuxedo Park and Sloatsburg, NY. This is when the fun really started. Without Jake we likely would have wound up in a care facility with soft, carpet-like lawns and folks speaking in muted tones. Item by item, detail by detail, Jake guided us towards our dream home battling with contractors, agents, inspectors, county officials, and assorted other dramatis personae, checking and rechecking everything along the way. We knew we were in good hands. After what had seemed like eternity we finally became happy owners of our dream home. Jake is still in touch making sure the transition is going smoothly and everything working as it should for which we are eternally grateful. It feels great to be in good hands. Folks, if you want to buy property give Jake a call.”
