    We have bought many houses and so many properties over the years. This is our first investment property and we work with Jared for probably four years to find the right property. I have to say this was the finest real estate experience we have ever . We had some negative experiences with a couple of other agents, Jared went above and beyond the call of duty, And we will certainly use him for all of our real estate agent future.”
