What folks are saying about Jay


We met Jay Rockwell when we came to Victoria to find a new home. Jay impressed us with the friendly, professional way he goes about his business. He went to work immediately, making a sincere effort to understand our needs and desires for our new home. He actively sought our feedback on the properties he showed us, in order to better understand what we were looking for. The information that Jay provided about the neighbourhoods we visited included many things that only a local would know, and he gave us many insights on both the up sides and the down sides of buying in a given location. Jay was punctual, quick to respond to our texts and emails, and equally friendly and responsive with the listing realtors, bankers, people on our conveyancing team, and property managers at our new condo. Jay was sensitive to deadlines through every step of our transaction. He represented us politely, but firmly and aggressively in a competitive buying situation, and his diligence helped to ensure that we were successful. Jay made sure that our home purchase and our subsequent move took place without any complications. He has stayed in touch with us since our move. We are very happy with our new home. We would not hesitate to recommend Jay to anyone who wants to find themselves the ideal new home in Victoria.

Jay is one of the best professional realtors I have had the pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him and have already toted his praises to many people. He is patient but attentive, kind but forceful when needed, generous to a fault and always willing to talk real estate. I found him to be honest, trustworthy and fun but never pushy while doing business. He gets the job done and goes the extra mile to ensure your needs are met. Jay...you are the best. Thank you for all your help.

Jay has been my go-to agent in Victoria for a few years, and I've referred several clients to him, because he's proven to me over and over again that he always has the clients' best interests at heart. He is experienced, skilled, and takes pride in providing the highest possible level of customer service. If you're looking for an exceptional agent, you can't go wrong with Jay.

Ted Greenhough

We were very fortunate to meet and engage Jay in the very early days of his Realtor career.  Over a ten year period, Jay assisted us in selling our very first home and then locating and eventually selling two other houses.  Jay knew us.  He took the time to understand what we preferred, what was important and how the property would fit into our busy lives.  In addition, Jay has assisted our son and daughter-in-law in finding their first home, selling it, and then finding their current house. 
Jay is a gem of a person—trustworthy, fun, knowledgeable, casual but always very professional.  Jay is not just a fine realtor but also a prince of a human being.  We could not recommend him higher.  You will be in very good hands with this gentleman!

  1. I am pleased to recommend Jay to any clients in the southern Vancouver Island area. Jay helped us buy my house in 2003 in Prince George, he went the further mile to work with us due to our time constraints but I remember at the time he was under time constraints with Mrs. Rockwell on the delivery of one of their children !! Thanks Jay.

    Again in 2009, Jay sold my house when I moved to Victoria - in four days.

    Once you meet Jay you will know why you want him as your realtor and representative working on your behalf. He is a very personable, outgoing fellow.

    I urge you to give Jay the opportunity to be your agent in your area.
