As out of state home buyers, Lisa and Jay were extremely understanding and professional with us as we researched the area trying to figure out where we wanted to be. Jay worked with me patiently and when we came down in January he took all the time we needed to look at the homes available. Lisa became my eyes and soul on our journey to homeownership. Lisa and Jay were extremely professional and knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable and welcome. Lisa listened and guided me with even my smallest concerns. God Bless her crystal ball. Ha Ha. They both continue to be there for us as we get acclimated and we cant wait to come back down and enjoy their company. They really made this experience awesome!! We cant thank them enough.

Jay was amazing during the whole process. He contacted me the minute he found a condo he knew we would love. He kept us informed and helped us along the process. We really enjoyed working with him!

Purchasing that “perfect” retirement home in Florida from out-of-state, can be a daunting task. Luckily, we found the “perfect” agent to help us find our new home. Jay Laing has a history in, and knowledge of the area, that few can match. He is always professional, but easy-going and personable at the same time. He showed great patience with our concerns, and worked diligently to find us just what we were looking for. The best part about working with Jay was that he was always more focused on finding homes that met our needs, answering our questions, and giving us good advice, than he was on closing a deal. Thank you Jay, for the time and effort you spent with us, making our home buying experience as easy as it was. We happily recommend you to anyone!

Donna Belk

Jay's a great guy! Nice personality and very knowledgeable about the Daytona area. Yes, his service is great. Keeps me informed without hasseling me, as I'm very slow and picky. It's much appreciated.

Robert Kelly

I’m lucky to have been matched up with Jay. He proved to be a true, caring professional who guided me thru the process seamlessly.

Lynn and I wanted to take time to thank you both, and your teams for helping us find answers to get into our home at 32 Ponce Deleon Drive.Jay, we appreciate the time you  took withh us, your knowledge of the area and helping us find the home that suited our budget and needs. Besides a Realtor, we feel we have found a friend here in the area.Valerie, you and your team have been outstanding. The mortgage process is generally not easy, or fun, but you helped us through it with minimal issues. A very good experience from our end.Once again, thankyou very much for making our move to Florida as good as possible. We certainly will have no problems recommending Watson in the future.

Bill & Lynn N.

Jay was very helpful assisting us in navigating the home build/purchase process. As we were orchestrating this from Nebraska it was difficult at times keeping the communications clear & on track. Without Jay's help it would have been much more complicated. Jay was a valuable asset in this process.

If you are looking for someone to help you buy or sell your property, I don't believe you can do any better than Jay Laing. He recently helped me during my search for a waterfront home in the Daytona Beach area. His professionalism and hard work were exceptional. He constantly exceeded my expectations. He put in consistent effort every single day to help me locate exactly what I was looking for, and his regular communications always let me know what was going on in all aspects of my search. I have bought and sold several properties over the past ten years, and the next time I have one to buy or sell, Jay will be the person I call for help!

When I decided to relocate from rural Virginia to Ormond Beach, FL, I was faced with a daunting challenge. Not only did I not know the area well, I didn't know a soul there, and I have MS, which makes every task that much more daunting. By luck and chance, I stumbled upon Realtor Jay Laing. What an angel! Jay's extensive local knowledge, prompt follow up and personal insights enabled me to locate a town home in the Halifax Plantation Golf Club that was perfect for my needs and budget. The entire transaction was handled over the internet and Jay ably represented me at the closing.We did not meet in person until I arrived one sunny Sunday morning. Jay greeted me at my new home to turn over the keys and remotes and to show me around. When my cat and I walked in for the first time, we knew we had found our forever home- it just felt right. Thank you, Jay Laing!

Boy did we get lucky when we met Jay Laing. We had to sell my Dad's villa in Halifax Plantation so he could move down to South Florida with me. Jay worked hard to sell the villa, and while we were in a hurry, he remained steadfast in not letting us lower our price too much. Since it did not sell as fast as we had hoped, we had to move Dad before it sold. Jay went the extra 100 miles to make sure that the property was kept safe, secure and cool, with no leaks or issues while we were not there to monitor the home.Then he made the closing so easy that we never had to go back up to Ormond Beach. Jay is as honest and hard working as the day is long- and he will become someone you want to call your friend!

Bill and Bambi S.

When we were ready to sell our home it was a dilemma deciding on a good agent, as past experiences had not been positive. Working with Jay Laing and Coastal Results Realty was so refreshing!. As we had special concerns regarding our pets, Jay sat down with us and together we developed strategies. Our home was kept in the forefront and this effort was rewarded with a steady flow of potential buyers. We were always kept informed of showings and progress concerning the sale of our house. The Coastal Results Realty team were true professionals. Jay not only made sure our closing went very smoothly, but also followed through to assure our out-of-state closing was successful. We cannot say enough about Jay Laing, except that he would be a very great asset to anyone buying or selling a home.

Barbara & Karen C.

Jay is a consummate professional. He handled every aspect of this transaction with fluid persision. I can’t think of anything more that he could have done to make the sale and closing of my condo any better. He is a five star realtor.

Michael L. Christopher, S.

Jay was very friendly and very accommodating. He showed me several properties and went back with me several times to see them again.( I couldnt make up my mind)! He was very patient and kind. He feels like a friend now! We are very excited to get moved in. He gets 5 stars!
