“Jon is an excellent agent. Answered all my texts and emails in a timely manner nearly 24 hours a day. Always willing to help with any questions I had and never tried to push towards a sale. He took the time to make sure I was completely comfortable each step of the way. I will use him again and will send more business his way.” – Mike

“Jon Mand did an excellent job in helping us find our dream home! He was always accessible and available. The personalized research he did on our behalf was impressive. He was there at every step from home search to closing. He played an integral part in making the home inspection thorough. He even helped us find a bank that worked with us to make our dream home purchase a reality. We couldn’t have asked for a better real estate professional. I will be recommending him to friends and family for years to come!” – Ganesh

“We retained Jon to help us find a new home for us and our growing kids – and then sell our existing home. He did a fantastic job on both counts. Jon knows the market and the agents, is experienced and knowledgeable with the laws and customs governing the process, and made sure everything (including home repairs) happened in a smooth and timely manner. We are very satisfied with our new home, and had a contract on our existing home within a week, thanks in no small part to Jon’s and Lenihan Sotheby’s staging and marketing resources. I would highly recommend his services to friends, family, and colleagues.” – Jeff

“Jake is an agent that makes you feel like you are his only client. He goes out of the way to make sure he can provide access to your house if it is for sale and to be available to you if there is a new property on the market that he wants you to be the first to see. His professionalism is outstanding. This isn’t just a hobby for Jake, this is his career and he takes pride in being very knowledgeable about not only the latest properties available, but the changes in the administrative side of real estate purchasing and selling. I will definitely call Jake again for future real estate transactions and I highly recommend him to others.” – Michele

“We moved to the area not knowing anything about the local market, and Jon was highly knowledgeable about all neighborhoods. He found us a great house at a great price. There were a lot of unforeseen problems with the closing on the seller’s side and Jon and his team couldn’t have handled it better. Highest Recommendation.” – Robert

“I am a 25 year old first time home buyer who, a year ago, had no idea what I was doing in terms of home ownership. I wasn’t sure if I even wanted a house, but I knew the market was competitive and I wanted to keep my eyes open so I wouldn’t miss the perfect house. Jake was willing to work with me over the course of many months to help me get pre-approved, find the right home, put together an offer, get an inspection, and ultimately close. His knowledge of the area was great, and it felt like he always provided honest advice. A big asset to me was his knowledge of home renovation. Having a rough idea of maintenance costs allowed me to feel much more comfortable putting in an offer. He also never once pushed me towards a house I didn’t want. I would absolutely recommend Jake to anyone looking.” – kakolpek

“We hit a HUGE snag during the selling of our home. In hindsight, we are SO GLAD Jon was on our side. His understanding of the intricacies of Real Estate law put us at ease. It is quite obvious Jon is successful in real estate because he is an expert.

“Jake was great to work with while purchasing my first home. I knew he was looking out for my best interests while finding me the best deal. Being a first time home-buyer can be very nerve-wracking, and Jake was very attentive and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire buying process. His passion for real estate and providing the best service for his clients is evident in everything he does. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home in Louisville!” – Claire

“Jon helped my family find a beautiful after relocating from another state. Could not have been happier with the experience. The actual purchase of the house ended up being more work than we expected, but Jon was able to guide us through the process. Would absolutely work with this realtor again.” – Jennifer

“I met Jake at an open house. My house had already been on the market for 6 months with no reasonable offers. Jake showed me several properties, so I let me list my home when the other contract expired. Without a reduction in price, he sold my house in 24 hours! He went above and beyond, listening to my specific home requirements, keeping me apprised of new listings, and calling often. He arranged multiple showings at anytime, day or evening. He was patient and trustworthy. He even called to check on us after we moved in just to make sure we were settled in.” – Abby

“We found Jon Mand online and he was also recommended to us by a friend and we are SO lucky that we did! He was so diligent and went above and beyond to help us get the house that we loved (if it weren’t for his savvy negotiation with the other realtor and owner, we wouldn’t have been able to afford our house). He knows Louisville very well and was able to pick up on what we were looking for from the start, and showed us great homes that were exactly what we were looking for. He’s punctual and always available. He picked up on a detail on the electrical box that was replaced that no one else did, and made sure that we were getting the proper permit. He’s an expert on all aspects of homes and home buying and facilitated the entire process for us since we lived out of town. He’s also very pleasant and friendly to work with. We would highly recommend Jon and if we ever move, we would go with him again!” – Virginia

“Jake made us feel like we were the only people he was working with. Sending us potential places and if there was something we were interested in, 9 times out of 10 he was able to get us in exactly when we were first available. And the 1 of 10 was because it was a multi-family home that required 48 hours before showing. He goes above and beyond to find you what you need and quickly, which can make a huge difference on getting your bid in ahead of the game. I would and have recommended him to people – he even helped our good friends get an awesome deal on an incredible home this year as well.” – Rachel
