Jacob's seemingly boundless stamina, patience, perseverance, and responsiveness were remarkable in his capacity as a buyer's agent helping my recent first-time home purchase. With great skill and expertise, he helped me make formal offers on a total of five or six different listings over an 18-month period, before success was finally achieved with the purchase of a nice condo in Carlsbad that met many challenging criteria. Due to my focus on my job and frequent out-of-town travels during the above house hunting, my dad was my stand-in to evaluate new listings as they came up. But though my dad had time on his hands, he lives some 600 miles up north and had to rely on scheduled airlines instead of driving down at will. Thus my dad's "help" surely put extra stress on Jacob in his role as buyer's agent. But far from even hinting that it was a burden, Jacob was unfailingly upbeat and responsive to all our scheduling needs. Add to that the many taxing questions that only a first-time buyer would be asking. Jacob never once showed any frustration. He was always calm and thoughtful in skillfully advising us on the many problem resolutions. He exercised commendable diplomatic skills, even in stressful late-night communications/negotiations with the selling parties. We also benefited from Jacob's hard-to-match, deep, and broad expertise pertaining to local real estate history and matters, gained first from his perspective growing up all over the area and now as a professional working the stomping grounds of his youth and school days, Kudos also for his part-time gig in high school sports coaching, adding a credential to his professional integrity cited by a reviewer and client in another online posting.
