The synopsis of our experience is that we, either as individuals, or as a family would recommend and/or hire Jesse Hughes a heartbeat. He’s that good, and your experience with him will be top shelf from start to finish and beyond. He’s earned a glowing review from us and here is how;
After the passing of our parents, we 5 siblings were beyond fortunate, and inherited the family farm, the “home place” if you will, equally. For years we rented it out, but when the time came to pursue other options we knew we needed help because truthfully, there was never going to be a day where all 5 of us woke up one morning and would all be on the same page in agreement as to how we should proceed. Research proves selling is a stressor – now factor in that we were ending ownership of our roots. So while there was no way to avoid the stress and emotional aspects of it, we did know that at all costs we did not want have to use the legal system and let someone we didn’t know decide what happened.
We started by sitting down with a few realtors. Never found one we all felt comfortable with. We then visited another land auction company. While we liked the idea, when we asked questions, the answers were so long and drawn out we were still confused – kind of like asking someone what time it is and they tell you how the clock was built. Not a good fit for us.
Then we met Jesse Hughes. In retrospect, we probably grilled him hard, but he shined. He didn’t promise us the moon and the stars. He didn’t pretend the process would be quick and easy. He did, however, promise he would help us stay the course and reach an outcome that was acceptable to all. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HE DID. Here’s what Jesse does: he always keeps your best interest a priority. He is honest. He listens, he answers questions as thoroughly as he can, and he doesn’t rush you to make a decision. He has the ability to tell you that an opposing point is valid, and does it in such a way that even if you don’t like hearing it, you accept it. When asked for an opinion or direction, he gives you options and ALWAYS respects that the decision(s) is yours, not his, to make. And the man has the patience of Jobe. Facilitating the sale of our home place took a few years from start to finish. If he ever became frustrated or fed up, he never once showed it. While not ever our intent to be difficult, 5 adults with 5 opinions can be kind of like navigating a land mine. Jesse guided us all though it and we came out on the other side in a better place. We are grateful beyond words to Jesse and his ability to facilitate a closure none thought was possible. Hire Jesse, and you’ll understand what we mean.
