“Jon’s positive attitude and upbeat nature made all the difference in our home buying experience. Not only was he responsive and thorough, he was extremely knowledgeable about neighborhoods in Atlanta. Jon was really patient with my husband and I as we tried to identify the right house and worked with us to narrow down a neighborhood that met all our needs. When we found the house for us, Jon was great about explaining the offer process and continued to guide us every step of the way. My husband and I highly recommend Jon to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home.”
“I would highly recommend Jon to anybody buying or selling a house. As a first time home buyer, I found that I could rely on Jon at every phase of the process. He has great knowledge of the intown neighborhoods where I was looking. He was patient with all my questions and I never felt like I was wondering when he would respond – he was always quick to get back to me. From the time when I put in an offer through moving into the house and beyond, Jon has been there helping me every step along the way. He knows the right people to make the process move smoothly. Most of all, I feel like I can trust Jon. And that’s the most important thing when making the largest purchase I’ve ever made.”
“Jon Effron is an exemplary real estate agent. More than merely showing us properties, Jon listened intently to us, asked us pointed questions, and extracted from us with great care and wisdom what it was that we truly needed and wanted. Such tailored service demonstrates his exquisite professionalism at all hours of the day. Always ready with sage advice, obscure and deep knowledge of neighborhoods, and with a savvy eye toward the future, Jon made our lengthy search enjoyable and educational. And as we neared closing, he ushered us through thorny legal and financial patches with equanimity and managed our expectations appropriately. I could not imagine a better agent.”
“My husband and I have purchased property in New York City, upstate NY, Los Angeles, coastal Maine…and In-Town Atlanta with Jon Effron in 2011. He is hands down our favorite and most impressive real estate agent to date. It was a nail-biter of a deal, and honestly we didn’t think it would go through. If it weren’t for Jon it might not have. He stayed invested and informed during every stage of the process, was uniformly liked and listened to by all parties involved…and despite the fact that it was a shaky deal from start to finish he maintained a positive attitude that made things go smoothly and in our favor. We give him the highest recommendation possible.”
