"Jerry is awesome. Simply put. We sold our home in Venice August 2013 after finding Jerry through a friend. We are so glad we did because not only is he a very talented agent, he's one of the most personable, down to earth, and easy going guys we've met ... let alone in the real estate world. And still to this day, nine months later, I can call him for advice and he's just as wonderful as he always is. Our first impression when we had him over to interview...Jerry was so calm, respectful, and passionate about our potential sale of the house . He walked around and instantly saw the points we needed to focus on. Whether it was minor tweaks to pop curb appeal, quick decorating choices, or even thoughts about ways to stage and prep the for public walk-thrus, we followed nearly all his advice and are so glad we did. And, for the tips we didn't follow, big deal. Jerry understood our reasoning and rolled with it. So that's my point. I've worked with many agents who seem amazing and all that, but usually it's a facade. We never felt that way with Jerry and he fit perfectly into our family, which by the way meant he had to also deal with our crazy crying toddler and infant, and barky bark dog. Poor guy. A few more high points. We needed a bit more landscaping in our front . Jerry had a guy come overnight and do the plantings. Bam! Instant curb appeal. We needed a few more accents inside our and BAM, Jerry rolls in one night around 10pm (called first, of course) with large sacks full of couch pillows, decorations, coffee table books, etc. And best of all, on the first day of open houses , the next-door neighbor blows up a bounce house and starts bumping the bass for some family get together they also had planned. We literally thought the day was over...and then it started to rain. We were confident it was a disaster now. I remember calling Jerry the morning of in such a panic and full of despair and what did he say? "It's fine, we'll roll with it. Your house is beautiful and people we see right past the party and weather. I'll be there in full force. Just relax and enjoy your day." We did. Within just a few days, we had 7 offers, with 6 AT or ABOVE asking. We were in escrow a few days later. Jerry was great and anyone looking for an agent who knows the Westside give this guy a call. And if he just isn't the right fit, no big deal. He'll still be excited he met you. Good luck!"" -- Joseph Smith

"Jerry helped us sell our first home in Mar Vista. We were originally planning on using the most well known agent in the area, but when we met Jerry we were completely impressed by his knowledge of the market, and his very communicative approach to our situation. He analyzed our situation and recommended a thorough list of options for us to improve the presentation of our house. Then he guided us through the upgrades and helped us make cost effective improvements before we put it on the market. His marketing was awesome: over 100 people in at our first open house, we had 7 offers in 2 days and were under contract within a week. At a price higher than we had imagined! I always recommend Jerry to any friends buying or selling homes. Currently Jerry is representing us as we shop for income property in Los Angeles. His knowledge and counsel have been invaluable, and we trust him to guide us to a solid investment. " -- Dino Parks & Julie Anderson


"Jerry was brilliant during every phase of our purchase in Santa Monica. We had been with another agent, getting nowhere for almost a year when a friend told me to switch asap to Jerry. Sure enough, within a couple of months thanks to him we were able to close on a property which is a perfect fit for our family - and far exceeded what we thought we could afford. He took the time to really listen to us and truly considered what our needs were. He's so savvy and insightful about neighborhoods, and people. He's a creative thinker, amazing at strategizing and negotiating (so much so that we were able to close at a rate far less than asking price). He also has a great reputation with other agents - which we've come to realize makes a huge difference. He provided invaluable guidance on everything from lenders and escrow to inspection vendors and improvements. Everything he predicted was spot on. He's able to do it all and we felt totally taken care of from the smallest to the biggest issues - instead of falling between the cracks of a large team which seems to be the trend these days. If and when we ever sell we will hope to have him do it as I could tell from his marketing savvy and his great eye that he'd get us the best possible price and buyer. Having him be such a pro and so hands on, and also such a nice and interesting guy, made the whole experience such a pleasure. I could go on and on but really, if you're lucky enough to find him available, work with him - you'll know immediately what I'm talking about."  - - Erica Klein


"Jerry was our agent in selling our townhome. He was knowledgeable about literally everything. He helped us to assess selling, managed our updating with contractors, staging, marketing and buyer negotiations. We were out of town and he made every effort to be there for us and handle anything and everything. We could not be happier with the results of the updates and efficient sale. He knows the market on the west side extremely well and his experience shows. He cared about everything and went above and beyond. We would not have been able to do all the updates and sell for the price we were able to without him- he is the best!" -- Christine Kelly

"Jerry is an amazing realtor. He is really knowledgeable about neighborhoods and takes care to make the right fit for you. Jerry helped me with my first purchase, which was a foreclosure, and helped me successfully on the in time. Years later, when it was time to sell, he did it within the first two weeks. Jerry made sure I knew what to do to maximize the 'home's presence in the current market. I had three offers by the evening of the first open house ! Recently, Jerry helped me find and purchase my new home, which I love! It was a complicated probate sale, and without him, it just wouldn't have happened. After the purchase, Jerry helped me find great contractors for my renovation.  And throughout the renovation, he checked in with me to ensure that everything was going well.  I highly recommend Jerry Jaffe. He is knowledgeable, insightful, and hard-working. Having him on your side is the best option you can have when buying or selling. " -- Elsa Cernudo

"Jerry Jaffe handled the purchase of our dream home ! Jerry identified the property , helped us through a competitive bidding process, then helped us negotiate down the price, and did it all with ease. We felt we were in the surest of hands. In this extremely competitive market, the seller selected our bid over others in large part because of Jerry's excellent reputation. He receives our highest recommendation" -- Stephen G.

"Jerry sold our Venice home for us last month, and we just could not be happier with his work. He began working with us in the fall last year, and advised us on every step, but always in an informative and reasonable way. We felt he was a true collaborator, using his own vast experience and expertise, but also listening to our own design and neighborhood knowledge. He was very involved in the design of the improvements and the staging, and we really respected his informed advice. And when we moved into the negotiation phase, he was absolutely stellar. Our friends asked us what was the best decision we made in selling, and we are very clear that it was engaging Jerry!" -- Polly and Doug
