— Fred Vetterlein, Jamaica Plain, Buyer, seller
BJ Ray has been my Realtor for several years in both sales and purchases.
Perhaps the best testament is his sincerity. When the recession began, I was saddled with several renovated condos that would only sell at a loss. To cut my losses, I tried to sell on my own by setting up a website, advertising, and paying to list in MLS. During that time, I met BJ and he advised me on the intricacies of marketing and didn’t ask me for a fee. He gave me advice on mailing newsletters to Realtors, generating buzz for open houses, and offered many computer savvy details that would help the listing succeed.
I learned about his large database, his attention to every item, his know-how in marketing. I ultimately signed with him as my realtor. The problem condos sold within weeks and I have used him on every real estate transaction (buying and selling) since.
I referred a friend to BJ and she hired him as her buyer agent. Though I watch the daily updates on real estate every day, he spotted the perfect condo for her, a first time home buyer. He helped her through the entire sale and kept up her spirit through the difficult decisions she had to make, from the offer and home inspection, through negotiations, P&S, and final sale.
BJ is the most computer competent realtor I know. He answers calls, texts and emails immediately. He is always informed and other parties recognize the skill he brings to negotiations. I feel completely supported when working with him and would recommend him to buyer or seller.
