Buyer • Chico
‟Aaron successfully handled guiding us through the process of finding and buying a new home. We moved from out of state and his use of technology and excellent communication skills kept us in the loop at every twist and turn. There was an unusual issue related to the title on the home we purchased which caused a delay in closing. This was no fault of Aarons and he negotiated a satisfactory resolution with our best interests in mind. ” Read More ▾

Buyer • The Avenues in Chico
‟We relocated to Chico from another area and were referred to City of Trees Realty by our realtor, whom we’ve known for almost ten years. City of Trees Realty turned out to be a top-notch agency! We started out working with Laura Burghardt, who was wonderful and gave us a warm welcome to Chico. Moving to a new area was stressful at times, but Laura quickly eased our nerves. She is genuine, conscientious and goes above and beyond to ensure her clients’ needs are addressed. We also worked extensively with Aaron Jay, who was super responsive and very accommodating with us having to come from out of town to look at homes. Aaron made us feel comfortable right away and is a bright and personable individual. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and made us feel at home before we even found a place. He is also incredibly patient! After visiting many different properties, when we finally decided on a home and made an offer, Aaron worked very hard for us throughout the process. His responses to us were immediate and he was available at all hours of the day. Everything went very smoothly with no hiccups and we ended up getting exactly what we wanted for the right price. Thank you very much Aaron, Laura, and the rest of the City of Trees team!” Read More ▾

I also wanted to work with someone personable, flexible, and patient as I found the right home. Aaron Jay was all of these things.

J. Thorkelson

Buyer
‟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. As an out-of-town buyer, it was essential to have a Realtor who provided me with updated listings, answered phone calls and e-mails promptly, and worked with the listing agent and title company to complete the transaction in a timely manner. 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 ▾
