As a buyer from Europe, I needed a trustworthy agent with great communication. Garrett was also a strong negotiator who profited me during the sale. With his architectural background, he oversees the development while I'm overseas. I found his willingness to go beyond the standard realtor role extremely helpful as my knowledge of the transaction process in California was limited.
Jesse was my agent when we were buying a home last year (2019). As a first time buyer, there were lots of anxiety due to the lack of experience, but Jesse was extremely helpful and patient while we were looking for the best house we wanted to live in. Also once we were in the offering or negotiating stage (we had quite complicated situation than usual I would say, like identifying delayed permit and multiple offer or counter offer steps), Jesse was very responsive and guided us through his well-principled negotiation skills, while he always let us make the final decision based on all the input he provided to us. Overall, I strongly recommend Jesse to anyone who are interested in buying a new house in the area. Although I haven't sold with Jesse, based on my experience with buying, I believe Jesse will provide the best service in any type of real estate transactions.
Garrett pays attention to detail, is attentive, and patient (which is key). I appreciated his calm demeanor, during what can be a quite stressful process. It was easy to trust the process under your guidance. I liked that we never felt pressured into a decision.
Jesse represented me for a home I purchased. I am very happy I found him to represent me. He always has a relaxed and positive manner, which is a relief to me as a buyer in what can be a stressful process. Jesse was very responsive, and always promptly did what he promised to do. He followed my lead on the offer, and didn't try to push me into something I wasn't comfortable with, but also struck quickly and negotiated deftly in order to get a great price once it was time to move on the offer. He helped a lot investigating any issues that came up, getting answers to every single question I had, making arrangements for various steps of the inspection, helping with final walk-through, etc. He clearly has a lot of experience, has a very customer focused mindset, and loves what he does - all of which ultimately benefited me greatly as the buyer. Thanks, Jesse!
I have a handful of clients that sell real estate but we chose Garrett to represent our sale for the simple fact that he is a solid guy. Always the optimist and not one of those agents that simply wants to just get a sale at any cost.
Jesse Morton handled the sale of my property at 1100 Ocean Park Blvd 90405 and subsequent purchase of my home at 12816 Indianapolis St 90066. Jesse marketed my home with precision and expertise, held open houses and negotiated an all cash offer within the first two weeks! Jesse then not only negotiated the price of my purchase, Jesse has been there through countless inspections and subsequent follow up work long after the purchase of my home. I've referred Jesse to everyone and anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. Jesse conducts himself professionally but is a tough negotiator and is the agent you want representing you on every transaction. I'll continue to only use Jesse for any future purchases and sales because I know the true value of having a negotiator like Jesse working on my behalf.
Amy and I worked with Jesse to buy our first house. I had worked with a few other realtors before, but never really connected. Jesse helped us review our needs and guided us through saved searches and house tours until I thought I had seen every house that came on the market. About when I was sure we should just give up, we found the right house and Jesse pulled us through the deal. The transaction involved a seller and realtor that were less than optimum, but Jesse ironed out the problems (more like plowed through the roadblocks) and we made it happen. He also connected us with a great mortgage team who financed and funded us smoothly and professionally. Amy and I love the house couldn't be happier we had Jesse to guide us through a difficult purchase.
Our experience with Jesse as our listing agent was amazing. 6 days from first open house to a signed agreement for over asking price, and the transaction closed escrow very smoothly.
Jesse exceeded any expectations we had and has been super in all areas along the way. We found a gem in View Park and put on offer on Christmas Eve - no problem for Jesse Jesse sold our loft in Santa Monica very quickly and at a record high We would highly recommend to anyone (not just on Westside).
Jesse helped me in 2016 with the buy of a fixer upper, then in 2019, the subsequent sale of the same home. With both transactions, the time in between, he was a pro, wealth of knowledge, a true friend, gentlemen. Nothing was too big or too small. I would highly recommend Jesse for all your real estate needs.
My family and I have worked on two transactions with Jesse and both experiences were amazing. Buying a home can be stressful but Jesse was able to keep both parties at ease while keeping our best interests in mind the whole time. He went above and beyond the call of duty as an agent and we will forever be grateful for his hard work and diligence. We look forward to working with him again!
This is the 4th purchase and 3rd sale I have done with Jesse Morton. He is a excellent partner on all of my real estate needs. He is thoughtful in his approach and only shares with me homes he believes will be a fit for what I am looking for. He is a great negotiator and always extremely level headed. He stands firm on the asks but always respectful and collaborative. He is a great communicator and extremely responsive. I would recommend him to anyone.
I’ve known Jesse for almost 20 years now and although we are good friends I’m sure he provides all his clients with the same professionalism, grace, honesty, knowledge, and detailed contractual skills that he did with my wife and I while purchasing our first home. He was even able to get us some money back for damaged flooring because he made sure the contract noted that the floor was in good condition underneath an addition that we removed. I was very pleased and he has also been very helpful with resources for our remodel. I will undoubtedly use him again for all my personal real estate needs and wholeheartedly recommend him to any and all.
Jesse has worked with me and my family on several real estates transactions. Jesse is a seasoned negotiator and is skilled in vetting buyers to ensure that as sellers, we strike a deal with the strongest buyer. His experience and market knowledge were instrumental in getting us record breaking sale prices for 2 of our homes. When representing us on the buying side, Jesse was able to effectively connect with all parties and create a strategy that helped us to win in multiple offers scenario. In each deal, Jesse's calm and confident demeanor helped us through the stress of closing escrow.
As first time home buyers my wife and I could not have wished for a better guide through our journey. Despite numerous challenges, setbacks, and lengthy delays Jesse was calm and steady; a trusted advisor and a reassuring presence. He not only helped us find the best possible home but helped us with the inspection and evaluation process to best ensure that home was as worry free as possible. Three years later we are still thrilled with our home and confidant it was a good purchase. When the time comes for something new Jesse will be our first call!
Jesse is thoughtful and thorough. I consider myself a pretty organized and efficient individual and Jesse was able to keep up with me, and even better, be a few steps ahead of me. He gently guided me and went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable every step of the way. I have used Jesse twice now and will continue to use him in the future. I honestly feel like he has my best interest in mind at all times and is not driven by closing a deal.
It is crucial to maintain a balance between the sellers’ and buyers’ goals. As a seasoned negotiator, I enjoy the challenge of striking this balance while protecting my clients’ interests and facilitating a successful closing.
