The definition of personal and complete service based on relationship and professionalism has been our experience in buying and selling a home with Jay. When issues came up you had already considered them and gave us great options for resolution. You guided us through the sale of our home with fluid communication and with the utmost attention to detail, that develops a trust that enables all parties to be at their best! We could not have asked for better service and you get our highest recommendation!
Jay helped us buy a home that we really liked and we cannot be grateful enough! He always kept us informed on available condos in the area without putting any pressure on us. He is very punctual, intelligent, kind and has a very calming demeanor that helped us greatly during the negotiation process. He was always available to answer our questions and even took time late at night and early morning to meet with us to show us condos that were not on the market yet, to ensure that we had a chance to put forward our offer ahead of other bidders. The fact that Jay is a lawyer by trade makes him invaluable, as he has extensive knowledge on real estate laws, policies and understands all the nuances of the market, especially in Boulder.
If you prefer to work with a realtor who is knowledgeable, realistic, reasonable and attentive, Jay would be the right person to have business with!

We highly recommend Jay Kalinski for any Boulder real estate needs. Jay spent our first few outings helping us get our bearings of the Boulder market by exploring neighborhoods and understanding what we wanted in a house. When the right house became available, Jay acted quickly and confidently to put our offer together on an extremely tight deadline. Despite a highly competitive situation, we won the contract with his expert guidance. The next few weeks, Jay continued to impress with his steady guidance, lightning fast response time and expertise in dealing with every little detail that was required for our closing.
Jay distinguishes himself from the standard realtor in a few critical areas. First, as a legal professional, Jay's working knowledge of contracts is exceptional. Second, his vast network of preferred vendors, including top notch mortgage lenders, inspectors, and repair companies proved invaluable.
Overall, Jay's competence, reliability and commitment to us surpassed every expectation.
We were looking to buy a condo for our daughter. Each time we would find a property, Jay would have two or three more lined up. He knew what we were looking for and went out of his way to find it. The whole process was quick and easy from start to finish because Jay treated us like we were his only client. Very pro-active, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Jay if buying or selling property.

We've sold several homes, but never with better representation. Jay's marketing plan was first-rate. The filming/photography showed our home to its best advantage. Some of the things he offered, and in fact did, were well beyond what we experienced in the past. We were particularly pleased that he always made time when we needed to talk to him. We would recommend Jay to anyone who wants very good advice and excellent representation.
I needed to sell my condo quickly to qualify for a new home builder and Jay helped me do that. He was instrumental in lining up a staging consultant and repair contractors to get my condo on the market quickly. I was out of town on business travel for much of this time so his coordination efforts were extra appreciated! Jay advised on a selling price I was comfortable with. When we listed my condo, I had five showings scheduled the very next day — and I had a signed contract for the full asking price + other perks the day after. It was 42 hours from listing to contract! During the march toward closing, Jay continued to help line up cleaning contractors and even helped me find a rental with flexible lease terms while my new home is being built. Jay was a steady professional throughout the process and I am grateful to him for seeing it through.
The housing market was extremely active when Jay was my agent and he was able to negotiate and win a home for me that had multiple offers on it in the first few days. Jay was professional throughout the entire process and always kept me informed of new information or changes. He put up with my barrage of questions and always responded in a timely manner, never once showing frustration or impatience.
Jay is a is a real estate professional who showed he truly cares and I recommend him 100% to anyone looking for a home in Colorado.
Jay initially represented the seller of a home we purchased. We didn't have a buy side broker because we already knew well both the community where we wanted to live and what we were looking for. As is common in Boulder, Jay became (with, of course, the seller's permission) a transactional broker, representing both sides transparently to facilitate a closing. We had a very positive experience with Jay, who is not a promoter but a straight-shooting, highly responsive gentleman who seemed and subsequently proved to be entirely trustworthy and competent. We had a hiccup with our lender due to an administrative challenge with the HOA paperwork, and Jay was exceptionally vigilant with both our lender and the HOA manager to make sure we still secured a loan in a timely fashion. While he was on vacation on the East Coast, Jay was still so responsive, it was as if he were on the ground nearby. At our request, Jay recommended several excellent service providers who we used in connection with some painting and other custom work we did or are now doing on our home. He knows the community and its best resources, and has deep roots in the area. I would recommend Jay on the buyside or the sell side, and will refer friends in need of an excellent broker whenever a need comes up.
I highly recommend Jay Kalinski after my experience enlisting him to sell our vacation home in Boulder. He exhibited all the characteristics I wanted to have in a Realtor, having been one myself. Initially and before we hired him, he listened carefully to our time frame and what we wanted to achieve from the sale. He was honest and trustworthy. He displayed expert knowledge of the unique Boulder market with regard to pricing and negotiation. As he is also an attorney, his attention to detail regarding documents was excellent. All of the above describe a good Realtor. However, what set him apart was how he tirelessly managed the property: scheduling and supervising painting and small repairs (even paying for a couple out of his own pocket), dealing with the alarm system, and returning our cable box. His biggest service was when Boulder was flooding and he dutifully and daily checked on the condo to make sure it was dry. We were lucky that it did not flood, but if it had he would have also overseen the restoration. In closing, he did his job above and beyond, and in doing so, afforded us the greatest service, which was peace of mind.
Jay was great to work with. He was well aware of each process and anticipated what would need to be done in advance. This was very helpful to me as I was planning a vacation and out of the country for several weeks prior to closing on the sell. He gave great advice and made the experience a positive one. I will be using him again when it is time to purchase a new home.
Jay helped make buying my condo a seamless experience. I needed to get into a place quickly and he made sure that happened. He stayed on top of all the steps necessary and kept me informed. I would not question using him again as my realtor.
Kathy & Fabio F.
Jay is an outstanding realtor. He was extremely helpful to us, as we purchased a condo in an area that was new to us. He responded quickly to all emails and answered all of our questions. He provided additional help by getting us in touch with companies that provide all types of home services. We would whole-heartedly recommend him, not only as a realtor, but as a conscientious and trustworthy person. We would be happy to work with him again.
Jay Kalinski was a great asset to have while going through this home selling process. Jay was familiar with the process and helped to anticipate all the requirements well in advance. This allowed us to be fully prepared for everything that would be required. The whole process from listing, showing and closing went smoothing and with little to no issues. I would highly recommend Jay to anyone who is also looking for a great selling experience for your home.

Jay was great. In one of the craziest housing markets I have ever experienced, Jay was able to find us a house in the area we were wanted in our price range. He also brought strategies to the table in a case involving multiple bids that left us on top and winning the house we wanted. In addition, Jay is very easy to work with, incredibly responsive, and has extensive legal knowledge of the inner workings of real estate.
I would suggest hands down that you work with Jay over any other realtor.
