J is an excellent agent! He patiently showed us many homes, gave us all kinds of good advice, and ultimately helped us to get the house we wanted in a very competitive bidding situation.

I would not hesitate to recommend J to anyone looking for an agent in NJ. Thank you J!

We had a great experience with Jay.

We are new to the area from Chicago, and although both of us had previously lived in NJ, there was a lot for us to learn about the real estate market. Jay showed us a lot of properties, and was very accessible during our experience of learning the market and eventually buying a home. If we wanted to see a home, he always made arrangements promptly and would have us scheduled to see a place as soon as the seller's schedule would allow. He also covered a pretty wide geographical area, as we looked at homes that spanned from Tewksbury to Scotch Plains. Jay always met us in person too, and never surprised us by sending someone else in place of him. Our visits were never rushed either, and Jay always took the time to make sure all of our questions were answered. His knowledge of the market, homes (especially older homes), and the process in general helped educate us and put us at ease. We are very happy with our experience and would recommend him to anyone.

John was a pleasure to work with. He helped us sell and then go onto buy our current home. John was honest in his opinions when it came to both selling and buying. He treated us as he would if he was working with family. He would show us everything we wanted to see no matter how many times we changed our minds on what we were looking for. Would highly recommend.

John is very knowledgeable of the Somerset county real estate market. He is very patient especially when we were looking to purchase our first home. Any listing we asked to see he would work with us to see at our earliest convenience. Not a pushy realtor, and would provide pros and cons on the property to allow us to come to our own decision. Very accessible and maintains open communication.

We are pleased to be moving into our new house in Virginia this week. John McNamara (Jay) with Turpin Realtors worked with us to sell our house in Mendham, New Jersey. From the time we discussed putting our house on the market through the entire sale and close of the house, Jay did an outstanding job in orchestrating the sale. My wife, Martha, and I were very impressed with the market analysis he prepared to properly price our home. Jay really does his homework! He thoroughly answered our questions and he did a great job marketing our home through networking with area realtors, advertising, direct mail, and multiple open houses which exceeded our expectations. He followed up on every showing and lead and kept us informed throughout the process on competitive houses entering the market, houses sold, and comments from potential Buyers after viewing our property. We received a contract on our house within two months of entering the market. Jay negotiated the sale and his follow up was immediate. He coordinated the many moving parts communicating with the multiple parties involved in going from a Sales Contract to Final Close. Martha and I have moved 10 times in my career. I have purchased and sold many houses. Jay was among the very best realtors we have worked with and we whole-heartedly recommend him to future Buyers or Sellers.

Jay was exactly what I wanted from a realtor: knowledgeable, realistic, persistent, kind and generous. I hd an unusual property and he was able to negotiate a sale that met my needs.

My husband and I had interviewed a number of real estate agents between 2012 and 2014 before deciding to use John. His listing presentation was in-depth and professional and the services that he and Turpin offered us made our decision easy.

John was never pushy, he listened to our requests, made suggestions, and provided us with a detailed timeline of the selling process.
His photographer's pictures were outstanding, allowing our listing to stand-out in the MLS system. Our home went under contract within a week of being on the market and the closing went through without a hitch.

We were very please with our real estate experience with John and highly recommend him.
