        What Our Clients Say

        I am writing this letter to highly recommend Jay Lawyer for his efforts in helping our family prepare and sell both the personal effects and the real estate of our recently deceased brother. Jay’s tireless efforts in aiding us to sort through a massive amount of family memorabilia and personal possessions was simply invaluable. Jay’s attention to detail allowed us to retain many items (pictures, letters, etc.) that we had either forgotten about or never knew existed. Jay accomplished his mission both thoroughly and in a timely manner which meant a great deal to us as we under quite a bit of pressure to settle the estate as quickly as possible. Jay’s handling of the on-line auction -which he rightly suggested was the way to handle the possessions - exceeded our expectations and went off without a hitch. Jay’s knowledge of the local real estate market allowed us to maximize our profits from the sale of both the land and the residence, which we could never have done as we live out of state. Jay’s advice was correct in every phase as we cleaned, repaired and sold everything as quickly and efficiently as possible. Jay handled our situation in both a highly professional and extremely sensitive manner which we will always appreciate. It goes without saying we highly recommend Jay to anyone who has an estate / real estate to settle and sell.
