"I have known Jay Epperson since November 2010, when I first started erroneously receiving his email (we have hilariously similar names and thus email addresses despite having no relation). In the 13 years that I have so far known Jay, we graduated from occasional email correspondents to Jay helping me think through a move from Austin to Colorado to Jay becoming our buyers' agent in 2019 to closing the loop as our selling agent for that property when we left the Denver market in 2022. Throughout the process, Jay has embodied all of the characteristics one should look for in an agent. His experiential skills, market knowledge, development foresight, and block-by-block familiarity of Denver neighborhoods is extremely rare, but it is his patience, interpersonal skills, relatability, and ability to build rapport with his clients that really sets him apart for us. Jay captained us through getting to know Denver (and each other) through the home shopping process, celebrated a home purchase, and toasted the eventual sale of that home and exit from the Denver community in a way that only he could. When we return to the Denver market, we will be calling on the "real" J.K. Epperson again!

"First and foremost, Jay was a fantastic advisor during the purchase and sale of our home in Denver between 2019 and 2022. His foresight on the market and strategic guidance led to a very successful exit from the Sloan’s Lake neighborhood! But beyond that, Jay is always ready and willing to put on his entrepreneurial hat to help us evaluate different residential (and even commercial!) opportunities in town. He knows who to call if you have questions on zoning, build costs, site layout, you name it. And honestly, most of the time he’s the person to call. His longstanding relationships with brokers in the community have enabled us to have transparent negotiations, and he’s always willing to make a call on our behalf when we need more information. Jay has been an absolute pleasure to work with over the years." - Jessica R

"In early 2014 my then-girlfriend (now wife) and I decided that our smartest next step in life would be to try to purchase our first home. Fortunately we were referred to Jay Epperson, who has now guided us through multiple real estate transactions. Starting with that first purchase, he helped us navigate and understand the process, showing patience and sharing wisdom along the way. One thing we appreciated the most was Jay's ability to provide input and context while stopping short of giving a personal opinion, which allowed us to ultimately make our own, informed choice. As our family grew and the time came for a larger home, Jay not only provided advice about the Denver market but also about other important considerations such as schools and future development plans for the areas we were interested in. One critical decision he helped us think through was the idea of retaining that first home as a rental property. We decided that that too would be a smart move and purchased our second home while also becoming landlords – a new role that Jay also helped us navigate. A few years later, with our family continuing to grow and jobs changing, we made the decision to relocate our family back to San Diego, CA. Once again, Jay’s knowledge and experience were invaluable, helping us exit the Denver market at exactly the right times for each property. We have Jay to thank for helping with all of that." - Josh M

"Jay helped us buy a our in Stapleton this past spring. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him and were happy with result. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of several neighborhoods in Denver and especially Stapleton, where he knows every street and several owners on each block. He has a background in architecture so he was able to walk us through houses and explain what modifications we could make and how much they would cost which was extremely helpful in assessing various options. Jay is and communicative and was always available to us, including on many nights and weekends. He showed us dozens of houses on our schedule before we found the one that was right for us. We never felt pressured in any way. We highly recommend Jay. "

"My family has had a tremendous experience working with the team. Jay Epperson is all you need in a Denver real estate professional - local expertise, responsive, incredible - and wise - negotiator. He two homes for us in very different neighborhoods in Denver and we were very satisfied by resolutions. A big value-add is Jay's network of pros to help prepare your home for listing and showing, through inspection resolution repairs in a fair, informed manner. Each of his recommended steps comes with historical perspective and potential impact, which a self-confident but somewhat hold-our-hand home seller needs! Great insight into how to integrate online tools in listing or finding a home, proving that technology is just a component of a very important transaction that requires a trusted professional advisor."

"Jay was great! He knows about construction of houses, neighborhood and process. He gave good and applicable advice and kept us focused on big picture. We were often out of town when milestones in process were happening; Jay stepped in to help out. Without this extra effort and incredible attention to detail, our house sale would not have happened. His of is heads and shoulders above all other realtors."

"With Jay, the sale of our house seemed to happen as if by magic. Due to his connections with other realtors, our house before it officially went on market. Jay efficiently organized all details necessary to move us along toward closing, even bringing dinner by night our inspection lasted longer than anticipated. When we return to Denver, we'll be contacting Jay to help us buy a new home. "

"We worked with Jay in selling our house recently, and it was a tremendous success--under contract within just a few days. His market knowledge was impressive, and he took a collaborative and consultative approach to helping us reach decision to sell vs. rent, as well as what right listing price should be. He was also diligent about keeping us on track for contracts, deadlines, closing etc. As well as continuing to be a resource to us post-closing. We'd certainly use him again in future transactions.
