My real estate philosophy is pretty straight forward. I enjoy helping people. Buying or selling a home is typically the biggest financial decision a person makes, and with big decisions, there is often a fair amount of stress involved. I like to think of myself as a shield for my clients against that stress. With the strength of a massive support team behind me here at Porch light, I am able to dedicate my full attention towards guiding my clients through the exciting peaks and valleys which occur during the process of buying or selling their home.
My approach to real estate is centered around teaching my clients about how the market works and helping them make wise real estate decisions. Prior to becoming an agent, I was an appraiser for 11 years and learned an awful lot about the difference between value and price during that time. I have found as an agent that the unique analytical skill set I developed as an appraiser has enabled me to help my clients get more for their homes than they expected to when selling, and helped some buyers get their offers accepted by sellers, even when theirs wasn't the highest bid. Also, on more than one occasion I have helped buyers purchase their homes below list price, which in Denver's ultra competitive market is in and of itself quite a challenge. I really enjoy being able to share the knowledge I gained in my last career to help people achieve their real estate goals.
"The decision to sell my condo was a monumental decision in my life. Not only was my condo the first
home I had ever owned, I was deciding to sell and move across the country to start a new chapter in my life.
I was thrilled when my fiance John referred me to you with complete confidence. Please know that you made the home-selling process far less traumatic for me (buying my condo was very difficult) and even enjoyable! I was pleased to learn of your many years as an Appraiser. Your
expertise in this area created a deeper sense of trust (and relief) in knowing you would accurately and
competitively price my property. It was a true pleasure working with you Jay. I will recommend you to my friends and family with complete
"We cannot say enough positive things about Jay Rossi and PorchLight Group. Jay was recommended to us by a friend and we are so glad we took her advice. Jay is professional, knowledgeable (don't even get him started on statistics), and an all around great guy. First, Jay sold our townhouse, which was only on the market for three days. Because of Jay's understanding of the market, we listed our townhouse at the right price and we ended up receiving three offers all above list. Next, Jay worked tirelessly to help us find a new home for our family. Jay is dedicated to his clients and he went above and beyond our expectations. We were also impressed with the pre-market and after-market services offered by PorchLight. Selling and buying a home can be one of the most stressful events in a person's life and Jay made it seamless, stress-free and actually fun. Oh, and he makes a mean apple pie."
"I recently sold my first home and couldn’t have been happier with the professionalism, advise, and personal support I received from Jay! I was very nervous going into the process, had tons of questions, and wanted to know I was making the right decisions. Jay did a great job of walking me through every step, keeping me informed, and reassured me that the decisions we were making were solid, and coincided with the market. I truly believe Jay’s market knowledge, negotiation skills, and expertise in home values was instrumental in me getting the most from my home sale! We are considering the sale of another home, and will undoubtedly be seeking Jay’s guidance again!"
"My fiancé and I used Jason Rossi for the purchase of our home. This home was very special to us, as we intended to make it the home in which we would raise our family and grow old together. Jay clearly understood our intentions and had the patience of a Saint - he took us to more than 50 homes and never showed the slightest hint of tiring. In fact, he made the process tremendous fun and we all had a lot of laughs together. Jay had the same determination as we did to find the perfect home for us, and he shined during the negotiation process. His education, extensive background in appraising, and skills in real estate contract preparation were integral in us ultimately purchasing a wonderful home….and more importantly, feeling we got a great deal and made the best decision."
