We recently sold our home in MD with Edward from Just Be. Edward consistently went above and beyond to make the process smooth and painless for us - not an easy task, considering we have two babies under 2 at home! He provided feedback on how to stage our house, guided us on list price and offers, and even offered to help us find a new home for our beloved cat! Not only did he outperform all expectations, he did it all with a smile on his face and an easy-going, charismatic personality. Edward was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to anyone!
Jay and his team made the home buying experience, dare I say, FUN! He was so patient, persistent, and a wonderful ally. He found us the most amazing condo! He has great referrals for many of the items that come up in the home buying process too. Every vendor he referred us to was very professional and easy to work with.
I reached out to Jay Bauer and Just BE after having an unsuccessful time with my agent at the time who was unable to sell my unit over 90 days and lowering the price twice.
JUST BE was able to get my condo under contract within a week of listing and for more money than my initial agent had listed it for. JUST BE made the selling process super simple and turnkey. They have top-notch partners from the staging vendor to the title company who also made the experience even better. I would use JUST BE again if I am ever selling again.
I literally wake up most mornings since we moved into our new condo and still don’t actually believe we live here. After months of arduously looking, falling in love, putting in offers, losing to all cash offers, followed by more searching, and finally the discovery of the apartment of our DREAMS. Not only was Just BE with us every step along the wayy, Jay himself (and even his wife when he was unavailable) never lost faith (even when we had). Not enough can be said about him or his team when it comes to bringing the deal home for an apartment we never knew could ever be ours in a building I would walk past all the time. There is no doubt that we would have been lost without Just Be - and we owe our warm and happy home to Jay and his team. We cannot recommend them enough to find you the home of your dreams. We drank the Jay Bauer punch- and you should too!
Jay just sold my condo in downtown DC and the experience was totally painless. I already relocated out of the city, so Jay and his team handled everything on my behalf. I trusted his process, and my unit sold quickly for the asking price while other identical units (priced significantly lower) did not move. He has great referrals for anything you could need (ex. movers) and even helped me sell some furniture. He's got a custom web portal that tracks every step of the process, so I was able to stay informed without spending a lot of time on the sale. Five stars.
Edward on the Just BE team was my agent and helped us find the home of our dreams. His support when we were looking and ultimately ready to buy was indispensable, and that spirit and attitude were a reflection of the whole Just BE team's readiness to go the extra mile for us. Edward was willing from moment one to work through the fine details with us on finding our dream spot and walking us through some sage wisdom for our first home purchase. I can't state enough how pleased we were with Edward's proactive nature, especially when the process threw us some curve balls. We want to wish him great success in 2023!
Jay knows what buyers want to see and how to get the best price for your property. Jay helped me sell two properties and they were both off the market in less than two days with contracts at or over full price. Whether you’re buying or selling Jay makes the process so easy. He literally takes care of everything except the decision-making. He’s a pleasure to work with and I’ll definitely work with him again.
Working with Zack and Jay to purchase our new home and sell our old one was amazing. Their knowledge and guidance made the whole process go smoothly and without stress! That is saying quite a bit when leaving a home after thirty years! They understood our goals, and listened to us carefully as to what we wanted and how we wanted to achieve them. They helped us make this enormous life change happen. Thanks to Just Be! They are the best!
I met Jay through a referral back in 2014 as I was looking to sell my home in the DC area as I was relocating to the West Coast. Jay did an awesome job and helped me to get my home sold in about 1 week! From then, I knew that I would be a customer for life! In late fall 2018, I decided that it was time to move back to the DC area and Jay was my first call. Again, from the first text message, Jay was all over it. The place that I had located was a bit outside of the city and Jay made trips back and forth as often as needed, as he was my eyes and ears here in the area while I was still located on the West Coast. Jay did FaceTime walkthroughs with me, and sent me video footage of the property. Ultimately, it was his seal of approval on the neighborhood and area that made me go forward with a contract on the home prior to ever seeing it in person. That alone should speak volumes to the level of trust I have in Jay and his team. Jay made this entire thing super easy, yet again. I would recommend Just BE to anyone looking for a realtor in the DC area. Jay is not only my number 1 realtor in the area but he's a friend for life!
Jay never ceases to amaze me with his personal care and attention with his clients. I am a Designer and Work with some of Jay's clients helping them either remodel their places to get ready for sale or after they move into their new home and want to make it their own. I work with several realtors in Dc and Jay is by far the most involved and cares about his clients needs making sure they are taken care of and getting the best deals on quality products. I love how he wants to make it perfect more than anyone involved. I always tell him, "If your clients only knew how much of your time and care you put in on this end which is NOT normal".... in response he said his clients don't need to see everything he does behind the scenes to make it as smooth and enjoyable of an experience when it's usually a stressful time. I think that says a lot- someone who doesn't seek a pat on the back- just wants to take care of his clients the old fashioned way. So- I had to say something because this way of doing business is rare and I feel should be applauded. Jay- you go above & beyond and on behalf of your clients and myself- thank YOU!
