was of the Essence
"When we decided to sell our
home, we knew we wanted to work with Jeff because he was so
effective when we had purchased. He helped us map out what
we needed to do to prepare our house for sale. The
preparation paid off because we received an offer the same
day that the house went on the market. Jeff had personally
established contact with the buying agent whose clients were
very much interested in not only our neighborhood, but in
our exact floor plan.
Jeff's knowledge of the market
ensured that we obtained a price that exceeded our
expectations. We also learned that when selling a home, we
were dependent on the process to go smoothly. Jeff's
expertise and experience kept things on track and proved
essential to escrow closing on time.

Research Pays Off
for your time and expertise. It was refreshing to work with
a Realtor who is knowledgeable, professional and listens to
his clients. We especially appreciated your prompt response
to our inquiry, and all of the on-line resources you made
available to us. The resulting process was easy and
self-directed so that we were well prepared for our personal
visit to the area.
Knowledge & Persistence
I contacted Jeff by phone when I
was looking to rent a home last year. Although he could not
help me in that endeavor, he was friendly and knowledgeable
about Monterey County real estate such that when I was ready
to buy a home, he was the Realtor for my family.
Jeff asked the right questions
to find out what I wanted and didn't want. He put me in
touch with folks who moved my real estate search along in
the time frame that worked for me. We were successful in
locating and acquiring a home in my price range -- and the
timing was perfect. Without Jeff being actively interested,
knowledgeable, and as persistent as I am, our new home
probably wouldn't have happened.
Right on Schedule
Thanks for all your diligent and
thorough efforts in getting our transaction completed in
such a thoughtful manner. I know we made a wise choice in
selecting you as our real estate agent. I'll bet there are
not many in your field who would have spent the amount of
time and research that you did, and made sure every detail
was taken care of when it needed to be. You were always
there to go the extra mile, and you are number 1 in our
book! We will be sure to recommend you to others we come
across who are in need of real estate services. Hope to stay
in touch throughout our time living here in Salinas. Feel
free to use this as a testimonial on your home page. It was
a pleasure working with you.

Real Estate is extremely competent in providing service to
its clients. When my mother passed away, I
gave Jeff the responsibility for selling her duplex in South
Salinas. I live out-of-state, which could have caused
communication problems. But through e-mail, FedEx and
telephone, I was constantly apprised of the progress of
events. He provided me information on comparable properties,
solicited my opinions, recommended a marketing approach, and
did such a great job of marketing that proceeds from the
property exceeded both his and my expectations. Jeff even
volunteered to help me in managing matters unrelated to the
real estate transaction, realizing the difficulties I would
have due to my living so far away. This guy is a real

Jeff, There aren't
enough words or ways to express our gratitude for all that
you've done for us. Just know that we are thrilled with our
first home and the entire process it took to get it. Your
dedication and professionalism really made the difference.
Again -- many, many thanks!!

Jeff Segal is a world-class Realtor. Jeff obviously loves what he does and he's expert in his field-at ease with the big picture as well as the picky details. Furthermore, he's an excellent communicator. My wife and I were amazed time and again by his responsiveness and follow-up, which are beyond compare in any field. Because of Jeff, we were able to locate and take possession of a house in Salinas within a 29-day period--start to finish--with a minimum of hassle.
Let me back up a minute and start at the beginning. My wife and I started looking for a home in Salinas because of a new job I accepted. We live in the Bay Area and didn't know the Monterey Peninsula very well, except for Monterey itself. I travel a great deal and did not have time for frequent trips into Salinas. This in itself would have made the home-buying task formidable for anyone else. Jeff was highly recommended via a mortgage broker we had known for 2 weeks. My wife spent some time on the phone with Jeff on a Thursday giving him details on our requirements while he looked up MLS listings electronically. On Friday they had a list of 3 or 4 homes. We met Jeff on a Saturday morning, saw 3 homes together with him, and immediately loved the last one. We made an offer an hour later and learned the offer was accepted during dinner that night. The next morning he arranged for all the inspections, spoke to our mortgage broker and revisited the house. We signed loan papers 3 weeks later and took possession the following Monday.
I reiterate: the process was so easy. The lion's share of the work was done via email, phone, and faxes with Jeff orchestrating everything from inspections to escrow questions. He made the entire house-buying process seamless, even fun.
We have come to trust Jeff Segal implicitly. His knowledge of the market and mastery of the whole process made it easy for us to turnover many details to him. Moreover his caring was evident everywhere in the journey. Yes, we would use Jeff in real estate transactions again. And yes, we wish everyone's process could be as easy.

Personal Touch -- Another Satisfied Seller
for all your help in selling our father's house after he
passed away. Your knowledge of the market in Salinas and
your willingness to walk us through the sale process step by
step gave us one less thing to worry about during a very
difficult time. With your exhaustive market research and
thorough comparison of our property to similar properties on
the market we were able to achieve a quick sale at the best
possible selling price. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to
refer anyone in Salinas to you for their real estate needs.
Again, thanks for all your help.
