Dear Prospective Home Owner
Dear Prospective Homeowners:
It is our pleasure to recommend Joe Newton as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home with a unique situation. We had visited relatives in the Jacksonville, FL area but were not totally aware of all the nuances to securing a modest house in a hurricane prone Atlantic Ocean beach environment. Mr. Newton was probably the best choice we could have made as a buyer’s real estate agent. We had initially thought that we wanted a location near my granddaughter’s elementary school, as a close proximity to this school would have been convenient for us to provide services to her parents as needed. As this proved to be a very congested area, it was soon evident that we needed to broaden the search area. Mr. Newton was very patient and provided all of the pertinent facts, including flood prone and hurricane evacuation areas, that we needed to find a secure second home for not only my husband and myself who are both retired, but also for my granddaughter and son’s visits. Providing small children with a safe outdoor space was paramount.
We had only designated one week away from our primary home in Virginia to find a house that would fit our requirements. My husband and I picked out homes of interest on the online real estate sites, we would then text Mr. Newton our selections. He worked diligently to provide us with access to evaluate these houses first hand. We probably looked at 20-25 homes during the week. Mr. Newton had warned us that prime real estate in the areas of interest to us were short-lived on the market. We initially thought this was a realtor’s way to get us to act quickly, but soon found out that he was spot-on with this advise. His immense knowledge for housing construction in the Jacksonville area, the real estate market in general, and the desire to provide us with an expedient service were the key issues that provided excellent results. A master with the contract negotiations, Mr. Newton came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well. At the end of the week he had negotiated our offer for a very nice house in an residential area adjacent to one of the top rated elementary schools in Jacksonville.
We found Mr. Newton to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned
all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality. We are pleased to recommend Joe Newton to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Jacksonville. He is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again he will be our first choice in real estate agents.
