"Four years ago my husband and I enlisted Ally Jaret as our agent to buy a home in Los Angeles while we were living in NY. Being so far away, it was critical that we had complete trust in our agent. Ally’s negotiations, day to day communications and follow up were excellent and the deal went extremely smoothly. Now four years later we were ready for another move, but unsure of what we could get in our price range. We contacted Ally and over the next few months she showed us many properties and different neighborhoods, discussed comp and financing, all before we were ready to put our home on the market. Knowing we were hesitant, Ally suggested we do an off-market listing for our property appearing only on the Compass website. She explained that would give us a sense of our optimal asking price and potential buyer’s reactions without the hassle of open houses or a formal MLS listing. It turned out to be a successful (and low stress) strategy, leading to two over-asking price offers after only 1 weekend of showing. Our townhouse went to escrow and closed in a matter of weeks, with an excellent lease-back clause to give us time to find our new home. While our main contact is with Ally, her partner Adam often meets us at properties and has some great ideas on making affordable changes to a potential new home. I would recommend Ally and Adam to anyone who is looking for a highly engaged, savvy agent who will take you through the buying / selling process seamlessly."
