BlueJays` Testimonials



I Bought a home in Tahquitz River Estates, Palm Springs, CA.  Jay searched for a property for me in Palm Springs for a very long time, the market there was like a roller coaster ride, we were out bid, sellers pulled listings, I had to sell a property in order to buy one there and that had not yet happened, but Jay kept searching for me until it finally all came together. He found me a great triplex in south Palm Springs, we thought the price was a bit high, then the seller dropped the price and Jay was right on top of it.  There were 5 offers on the property within a few hours, but Jay skillfully wrote our offer and secured the property for me. I have known Jay for over 35 years, you would look far and long to find another realtor that will work as hard or as long as it takes to take care of your reality needs, and the bonus is ending up with a great friend also. I highly recommend Jay Saufl to help you find your next property!

I just wanted to take a moment and personally thank James Ronald Whitney for finding me an impressive 40-acre parcel of land, and an incredible 4-bedroom home, both of which I purchased from him.  I worked exclusively with James, and would not have had it any other way, as he promptly answered my multitude of questions—even when research was necessary as the information available was frequently confusing and conflicting.


In addition to being acutely adept at understanding the national, state and local real estate market and climate, James’ Wall Street background allowed me to feel that at all times, he was looking at the properties I was considering as an important investment that was being added to my already diverse portfolio, and doing his best to protect me from any unnecessary risk or potential downside. 


 James was the consummate professional, and after listening to the many variables I asked him to consider, he successfully and expeditiously found those needles in the haystacks—neither of which were even formally on the market when I first saw them.  From day one through the closings, I knew I was in great hands, and I recommend to anyone looking for real estate to put all of your eggs in the very talented James Ronald Whitney basket—a decision you will most certainly never regret!

I purchased and sold a condo in Sonora Sunrise, Palm Springs, CA.  Over the years I have sold and bought several properties with Jay and during the entire process he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is always accessible, very knowledgeable about the market, very passionate about the industry and has been our one true confidant throughout the sale, the search and the closing process. We would strongly recommend Jay to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. He is approachable, honest and reliable and definitely someone you want on your side to help guide you safely. He also goes above and beyond customer service and has provided us with several references to electricians, plumbers, AC companies etc. Truly a gem of an agent.
