Working in real estate for over a decade in northern New Jersey, Jay has earned the prestigious NJAR Circle of Excellence designation, along with a very loyal, satisfied clientele thanks to his quality service. He specializes in commercial real estate, however, has in-depth expertise in residential, commercial, investment properties, rentals, and ground-up new construction in the market as well.
Jay is constantly being praised for being great at what he does, and normally builds long-lasting relationships with his clients. “If you take the time to educate yourself and your clients, that’s the best way to service them,” he says. “I feel less like a sales agent and more like a source of knowledge for the people I represent. Most importantly, I enjoy and take great pride in putting the human element back into my transactions.”
An expert in the territory where he sells, Jay lived along New Jersey’s Gold Coast for over 30 years. He has not only appreciated watching these communities progress but is deeply grateful to have been a driving force behind it through his work in real estate brokerage.
Though born in Cartagena Colombia, Jay was raised in the USA since he was six months old and has called New Jersey home for the majority of his life. Prior to entering real estate, he honed his keen eye and attention to detail as a private investigator. Jay is also a Licensed Emergency Technician–B (EMT) who volunteered for the town of West New York, NJ. In addition to his expertise and accessibility, he brings a broad sphere of influence his clients can tap into.
Currently residing in the suburbs of Rutherford, NJ in Bergen County, Jay loves the old-world charm and is looking to restore his Colonial home, built in the 1850s. He owns a multifamily in West New York, NJ as an investment, and a vacation home in Cartagena, Colombia. Jay reads, writes and speaks Spanish fluently, takes guitar and vocal lessons, and practices Bikram yoga in his free time.
