Jason Patton and the team at Bay River Realty were a pleasure to work with while selling our home from out of state. As experienced home owners we knew that it would be a challenge to market and sell our home in a down market from 700 miles away, we relied heavily on the expertise and strategies that Jason brought to the table. Never once did we feel he sugar coated anything, he was up front and honest from the start. We had watched other homes in our price point sit vacant and on the market for years, and worried that we may be in the same boat. Jason was able to keep our listing fresh in the minds of other local agents, and had a buyer for us in under a year (which was our target time frame). As with most real estate transactions, there were a few hiccups just before closing; Jason was very prompt and proactive in ironing out the small glitches that occurred. We feel very confident that Jason Patton will provide you with the honest, dependable, and friendly service you will want and need while selling your home.

I would like to highly recommend Dan Eskridge as a Realtor. Dan worked with us for a couple of years as we sought out property in Northern Neck. He is a very patient man, highly knowledgeable, and quick to respond. He is willing to go above and beyond for his clients, offering excellent service. We recently bought a piece of property and we literally could not have done it without Dan. We live in Northern Virginia and needed someone in the Northern Neck to check on different items for us. Dan has great contacts and can make recommendations/connections for his clients that make all the difference!!! We are so happy with our purchase and feel very fortunate that Dan was our Realtor. We appreciate his expertise, work ethic, and sense of humor!!!

I listed my house with Jason Patton because he works very hard at advertising and showing his properties. He’s thorough, professional, and friendly. I like the fact that he lives in the area, I know his family, and I can trust him. He kept me informed throughout the listing period and made the whole process go very smoothly. I would definitely use him again.

I have worked with Bay River Realty to sell two properties in the last three years. Each time, these properties sold faster than I expected. It is evident that Jason Patton works hard to stay on the cutting edge in regards to buying and selling real estate. Bay River Realty makes you feel you are at the top of their priority list regardless of how big or small your property may be.

?Jason Patton is the best real estate agent we have used, having bought and sold over 20 homes in 30 years of military service. We met Jason when we found a home in the Northern Neck that we wanted. We decided to sell our home in Colonial Beach as a “by owner” event and then buy thru Jason the home we found in the Northern Neck. We found a buyer for our “then” current home. Jason helped with many details without charge. Once we had sold the Colonial Beach home he made the buying of the Northern Neck home easy. There was no decision who to use when we decided to sell this northern neck home 5 years later. Jason worked hard to get us an offer quickly, then moved the process of ownership transfer seamlessly. If we were ever to buy or sell again we would use Jason.

Dear Jason:

I want to thank you again for recently selling our house on Cat Point Creek. You were extremely knowledgeable and helpful in all aspects of the process from helping us set a realistic price that would sell the property to getting everything completed expediently for the closing. You gave us excellent advice about staying out of the buyer’s way when they looked at the house, so they could linger and ask their questions. Your online marketing strategy was so successful, our house had a great number of “hits” which we were able to track through your weekly data reports sent to our email address which graphically showed which online sites were being viewed. Your ability to negotiate the price with the buyer gave us the best profit we could get on the house, and we are so appreciative of that.

Amazingly, in the current market, we had a contract on the house in only one month with the closing following one month later. We couldn’t believe how fast and easy the process was. With you walking us through each step and acting in our best interest, we were able to separate from a home which we had loved without any added anxiety from the process of selling. We were completely confident and trusting of your professionalism.

Thank you.

Please feel free to use this letter as a letter of reference. We will highly recommend you and your company.

Jason Patton was an absolute delight and found a buyer for my vacation home in a depressed market. I found him knowledgeable of the area, easy to talk with, and offered ongoing communication throughout the transaction. He provided a wonderful on-line virtual tour that presented the beautiful outdoor setting and interior of home.

A local surveyor actually referred me to him. In fact, a “competitor” told me that Jason “would do a very good job for me!” I was impressed that he was so well respected by the local real estate world and actually felt that I had made a new friend. I could not have been more pleased and highly recommend Jason.

I look forward to working with you again in the future. I will gladly recommend you to my friends and business contacts.

Thanks again,
