We can’t speak highly enough of our experience working with Jason Lewis as our agent! As co-trustees for our father’s estate, we needed to sell our father’s home located in the Mont Marin area of San Rafael. We needed an agent with extensive experience with the Marin real estate market and who could deal with the intricacies of selling a property for a trust. We also needed someone who could manage all aspects of the “rehabilitation” of the property in preparation for its sale, and who could bring the home quickly to market. From our initial meeting with Jason, and then throughout the entire sales process, it was obvious that he was the right man for the job.
Our father’s property had a significant amount of deferred maintenance that needed to be taken care of. Preparing the house for sale required the coordination of multiple inspectors, contractors and craftspeople, all of which needed to interweave their efforts seamlessly to avoid delays. As absentee sellers, we didn’t have the time or the bandwidth in our lives to manage this ourselves. Jason handled all of this on our behalf. He drew upon his extensive network of talented individuals to get the repair work done efficiently and with excellent quality, all at very reasonable costs. Throughout the process Jason kept us informed on the progress and consulted with us when decisions needed our input. If there were any complications during the process, Jason took care of them, and everything stayed perfectly on schedule. The end result was amazing! The house was transformed from what began as a fixer- upper to a property that was move-in ready, and all in a matter of just a few weeks!
Regarding the listing and marketing of the property, Jason’s expertise was invaluable. He put together a comprehensive marketing plan that presented the home in the most desirable way, and he brought the home to the market at the perfect time. We ended up with multiple offers (all above asking) as soon as the property was listed, and were in contract shortly thereafter. During escrow, the Covid 19 pandemic hit. Jason skillfully guided us through this difficult new reality for the real estate market and kept the sale of our property moving forward. The sale closed successfully and on time, even as other home sales throughout the Bay Area began to collapse.
We are truly grateful for having had the opportunity to work with Jason. His calm demeanor, extensive knowledge and experience guided us through what could have been a very difficult process for us. Most importantly, he managed the entire process with the highest of ethical standards, with true honesty and integrity, allowing us to meet our fiduciary responsibilities to the trust without any worries. We know our father would be proud of how his home found its new family!
We highly recommend Jason Lewis to anyone who is considering buying or selling a home in Marin. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to know more about our experience working with him.
If you’re looking for a Realtor to list your home, don’t look any further than Jason Lewis! Jason is a knowledgeable, hard-working, and practical Realtor who adeptly managed every step of our house sale.
As new estate trustees, we had not expected to find ourselves selling a house at all, much less one that needed some work. Jason made this difficult undertaking smooth, using his long-term relationships with skilled tradesmen in every field to prepare the house quickly and to a high standard. His tireless, conscientious and ethical approach to selling was reassuring and helped us find the right buyer at the right price, leaving all involved feeling good about the deal. Jason went the extra mile to get every detail right, even successfully dealing with difficult neighbors and HOA. We can’t recommend Jason enough!
Last year we worked with Jason Lewis on both the sale of our family home in Kentfield and the purchase of a new condo at Smith Ranch Homes. And it is my great pleasure to recommend Jason to future clients.After much debate, my father (along with my brother and me) decided to sell the home that he and my mom had built 45 years ago. My dad was facing some health issues and realized that moving to a senior community or to a small condo would be a smart move. Jason did an exceptional job for us across the board. My dad had not bought or sold a property in over 40 years, but still had some strong personal opinions about how he wanted the sale to go. Jason was able to quickly and clearly inform my father about current best practices. He gave him an accurate summary of the market and spot on advice on how to price the house. But he also listened carefully to my dad’s wishes and was an excellent advocate for him during the sale. Jason was able to help close the deal at an amazing price point during a challenging time of year (late fall, early December), something that I thought would be impossible. And throughout it all, he made my dad feel comfortable and confident and that he had someone working for him.Simultaneously, Jason pushed hard to find a condo that would work for my father. He had info about potential listings before they even hit the market. And used his deep connections with the real estate community to help find the PERFECT place for my dad. That close also went smoothly and the stress that I anticipated was mitigated by knowing that “Jason had the wheel” throughout it all.I am forever grateful to Jason for taking such good care of our family during this very big change. I would use him again in a heartbeat.Mollie Allen Kiehfuss
My wife and I were very lucky to have Jason as our Realtor when buying a condo in Corte Madera. We found him through a friend that lives in the same town and had bought properties with him two times before. As we didn’t know much about the area and the market, and since this was our first time buying a property, we decided to follow through with her recommendation.
Jason took all the time needed to explain all the concepts related to buying a property and guided us in every step of the process. When we decided to move forward with the property we liked the most he helped us with all the due diligence and research and we ended up buying that property.
If we ever decide to buy another property in Marin County we hope we can work again with Jason and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy properties in the area.
If you’re looking for an agent that will go to bat for you in Marin’s highly competitive housing market, we highly recommend Jason Lewis! After happening upon our first two realtors, we decided to interview our third go round. Jason was the best fit for us. He was professional, personable, and above all he was refreshingly HONEST. Every step of the way Jason talked us through our various options weighing the pros and cons. He always made time for us and managed to work around our kid schedule.As a contingent offer in Novato, we were told the odds were against us, but with Jason as our Realtor we beat the odds on our first try! The winning combination was strategic planning with Jason and good fortune. In Jason, we had a Realtor with the highest integrity and a great reputation among other Realtors, and that was significant to our success.The entire transaction of selling and buying a home went surprisingly smooth thanks to an amazing job by Jason Lewis…We could not be more enthusiastic about the level of competency and character of this professional. Thank you!
Jason is simply the best broker we ever used.He worked with us tirelessly for several months to understand our needs and aspirations. He visited countless houses on our behalf, each time trying to get a better idea of what we liked and disliked. This was especially difficult as we were based in NYC.Once he found our dream house, he had to solve seemingly unsurmountable issues, including multiple bidders with higher offers, legal roadblocks and time constraints. He worked day and night until all issues were resolved, finding creative solutions to satisfy all parties. His knowledge of the local market and the intricacies of the procedures involved were second to none. Looking back, I am convinced we would have never bought this house without all his help.In addition to his incredible dedication, I was impressed by his tact, sense of diplomacy, transparent communication and above all, his honesty. Jason never settled for a sub-optimal situation and was happy to work for our interests as long as necessary. This made him a very unique and trustworthy partner, one we can wholeheartedly recommend to anyone needing a real estate broker today.Sincerely,Ariane Mahler and Gian Solomon
