My wife Ana and I have known Jay Wells for over 6 years and have had 5 transactions with him in this time frame. We have purchased four vacation rental units and sold one unit without issues with Jay. In each case he completely understood our requirements and price constraints and worked within our guidelines never taking us outside of our comfort zone. During each transaction we grew to know Jay and to trust him implicitly and without reservation or concern for his integrity or ability to meet our requests. It is always in our schedule to have dinner with Jay during our visits to Orlando and we look upon our relationship with Jay as one built on friendship and respect versus agent and client. We can recommend Jay without hesitation to anybody who is looking for an individual of high moral fiber, exceptional market knowledge and a commitment to excellent to represent them in any transactions that they are looking to conduct.

I’m writing today to compliment our Realtor Jay Wells for a great Florida buying experience. It takes a bit of a stretch to say “great” as we did have some very exasperating times when we came down days after closing to find an iced over air conditioner, no hot water and at one point no power at all in the condo we bought but through it all Jay went above and beyond to help us through the mess. This was all after the closing and I suppose at this point most agents would walk away but Jay did not. He was a life ring when we felt surrounded by sharks and we are truly grateful for his assistance.
He has probably told you the story so I won’t repeat it here. It was a nightmare at the time.
Today I received the $500 check to apply to our travel expenses, another promise made and kept.
We chose your company having seen an ad in the back of one of those vacation property listing magazines picked up in a grocery store in February. I emailed a general inquiry and Jay called us a day later. We are very glad he did.
Through the entire buying process Jay was eager and informative, sending me listings before our trip, entirely pleasant to be with during our marathon of showings, very responsive to questions and backed up every promise with action. We can’t praise him enough. He continues to stay in touch and we hope to be able to steer him business in the future. We would not hesitate to recommend Jay Wells to anyone looking to buy in the central Florida area. When we resell the property he will certainly get the call.

Jay is an amazing, hardworking, and well-informed agent. He was always available to us via phone, email, and text and ready and willing to thoroughly answer any questions we had.
Although at times we were not always clear what we were looking for, Jay was able to decipher our intentions and was always on the look out for properties that would fit our criteria. Despite our indecision, Jay never gave up on us. And we are so grateful he did not as we are now the proud owners of a beautiful new home.
Not only did Jay find us the perfect house in a great location, but he also negotiated a phenomenal deal for us — including closing costs and many other builder concessions. We were frankly amazed at the contract he negotiated for us particularly since we had limited success on our own with the same builder in the past. We know Jay got us a better deal than we could have ever gotten on our own and we are so thankful for his exceptional service and professionalism!
If you’re looking for an agent in the Orlando/Central Florida area looking no more — we wholeheartedly recommend Jay Wells. Jay is an expert in his field and you will not be disappointed.

We would like to thank you for all your help with the purchase of our new Florida investment property.
In the early summer of 2014, we decided to evaluate purchasing an investment property in the Orlando area. As we live in Vermont, we started our search by using the Internet to locate Orlando properties and Realtors. We were not satisfied with this approach as the Realtors we contacted simply loaded us into a database and started sending emails of all new listings and did not respond to any of our questions.
Feeling frustrated, we decided we needed to schedule a trip to the Orlando area to continue our search. Prior to going to Orlando, we reached out to a co-worker who had purchased an investment property in the Orlando area for advice or tips and was given your name as a contact. We feel very fortunate to have been provided your name as you have experience and knowledge with investment properties, where the other Realtors we contacted were only familiar with selling residential properties.
We went to Orlando thinking we wanted to buy a Condo as we, a family of 3, have always rented Condos when we go on vacation. You showed us not only Condos, but also Town Homes and single family homes in resorts as well as in residential areas to help us understand what is available. You also hooked us up with a couple of property managers who helped us understand the short-term rental market in Orlando and helped us make the investment choice we feel best meets our goals.
The support you provided throughout our journey was more than we expected of a Realtor. You not only helped us find a home and get an amazing deal, you helped find a property management company, a lender, an interior decorator, as well as chased down open items required for closing. You saved us time and money by taking care of these things eliminating the need for us to make additional trips to Orlando.
We are looking forward to seeing how our investment property performs. The property management company already has bookings for our property and we only closed a week ago!
Thank you again Jay for all your help.
