Business Philosophy

    Since the beginning of Jay Jobst's real estate career in 1985, he has always been committed to his clients by putting their needs first. For buyers, Jay guides his clients through the complete process, from the first meeting to the closing. For sellers, Jay's top priority is to get his clients the best price possible by using his proven negotiating skills. Having been with Coldwell Banker since 1985, this longevity has helped Jay establish a positive working relationship with many area brokers. This has proven to be helpful when putting deals together for his clients. A large portion of Jay's business comes directly from past clients, which is a true reflection of Jay's ability to meet and exceed the expectations of his buyers and sellers.

    "We can't say enough in praising Jay in the way he handled the entire transaction. He is a true professional! We live in Arizona which meant we were not able to be on the scene on a regular basis. Jay 'took the bull by the horns' and performed services that we never experienced or expected from a Realtor in the past. When we hired Jay, he stated he was a full-service broker and he did exactly what he said he would do. Not only that, he sold the house at a fair price in a very short time. If you are looking to sell or buy a home, we highly recommend Jay Jobst!" - Dave & Joy G.

    "My family & I have used Jay as a Realtor with much success over the last 15 years. Most recently, he sold my home in Mt. Prospect. The home sold only about a month after listing it and for only a little less than asking price. I currently will be in the market to sell my house in the Northwest Suburbs in the next 18 months or so - Jay will be my Realtor of choice for selling and for purchasing a new residence!" - Nancy C.

    "My experience as a first-time homebuyer was pleasant because of Jay. He explained everything to me slowly, yet thoroughly. He was knowledgeable & patient. As soon as I asked for information, he was quick to get me a response. I would definitely use Jay again!" - Kim B.

    "I would like to offer a word of thanks to Jay for the job he performed for my family. I, and much of my family live out of state. My mother is currently in a care facility and after standing empty for well over a year, we decided it was in mom's best interest to sell. Jay and our closing attorney did a great job of not only finding & qualifying a buyer, but making sure all the details of the sale of the house went well. Being out of state and somewhat of a hot head myself, without cooler heads of a committed team of Jay & our attorney, this deal would not have happened. My thanks are both real & deserved." - John R.
