Downtown Jersey City homeowners nervously welcomed the New Year cogniz
"We began our home search with Shaye Lastra in Spring 2013. After speaking with several realtors, Shaye was the person we wanted to work with because she had an exceptionally work ethic, and was very knowledgeable about the area and process.
Shaye and her team showed my husband and I several homes, and helped us put in several offers (we were out-bid). Shaye was very organized and thorough, and constantly checked in and followed up with us, which was very important as we were searching for a property in an extremely competitive market. She was very easy to reach and always available (even on nights and weekends), and was prompt with returning calls when she was not able to pick up the phone herself.
In the end, we purchased a home through a different realty company because the seller had an exclusive contract through a different broker. Shaye fully encouraged us to pursue the home, despite the fact that this would mean the loss of a sale for her and we had been working with her for months. She even put us in touch with a realtor within the other company whom she trusted.
Even though she was no longer our realtor, Shaye kept in touch with us throughout. Due to the rapport we had built, we called her several times throughout the purchasing process to ask for advice when our realtor was on vacation, and when we needed an unbiased opinion. I am sorry that we were not able to finish the process with Shaye, but we are so grateful for having begun the process with her. I highly recommend Shaye for anyone looking to purchase a home in the Jersey City/Hoboken area."
