‟I would like to thank Realtor Aaron Jay for his excellent service and for "shepherding" me through the process of buying a condo in Chico.

Aaron excelled in all of these and I would definitely recommend him to others and to retain his services for future real estate transactions. Thank you Aaron” Read More ▾
