Jack is the man! He saved us $75000 by negotiation with the sellers on a $540k house. Plus with the NJ rebate we were able to pay for a 1/2 point thus saving us money over the next 30 years. Jack is very knoledgable and very helpful.

Jack is very professional in his area of services. He helped me putting my listing for sale using their flat fee MLS, which not only had my listing showed on all major search website but also saved me thousands of dollars commission normally charged by broker. Jack is always willing to help and answer my questions quickly.

Jack was very honest with what he promised and also let us know the potential things which could result in less than 2% rebate in the beginning. He is very aware of the local realty sales trend and showed his professionalism and skill in dealing the seller's agent and price negotiation. I am very satisfied with and highly recommend him.

Jack is very helpful and professional guy with excellent negotiation skills. Before I met him, I saw over 10 realtors. None of them really cared about the real benefit for me. Thanks for internet, I know Jack from zillow and had a very smooth experience to get my dream house in Berkeley Heights. He was very patient and helped me saved $25000 on negotiation part plus 1.5% rebate even when this house got multiple offers. If you can do a little bit of your own research with the target areas, you should definitely consider his business model to save a lot of money. Thanks Jack! Less ... More

I was very attractive by his business model, and used the services for both my selling and buying out house. Though the selling is not went through, but he and his team are very effective and responsive in our communications, and the best part is the 2% rebate we got on closing for buying. Very pleasant experiences, and definitely I 'll work with him again in the future. Thank you Jack!

Helped me buy and sell homes
I used Jack's company for both my selling and buying out house. For selling, the listing was rushed out on late Thursday evening to catch the weekend. His team helped us a lot and work late to get it out. Just that weekend, without even open house, we got 5 offers with full price. We closed the deal in about 45 days with no issues. We saved huge commission by using his unique service. For buying, Jack helped us from the beginning of negotiating price, closing and even house design suggestion. We got our rebate with no issue which essentially lower our price even further. Very pleasant experiences. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
While visiting an open house I came to know about Realmart Realty and I used their service when I bought my Condo. Jack and Yris assisted me greatly in the buying process and they provided me with the rebate as promised during the closing settlement. Jack also helped me to get my mortgage loan with a local lender. Whenever I reached out to him through phone/email, I got the response immediately whether its day or night and he is extremely flexible. I had recommended his agency to my friends and also will use his service again in future if necessary. Less ... More

I just bought a house with Carmen part of Jack Yao's team, and it was wonderful experience. I just cannot ask more than this, they were extremely professional and helpful, provided answer to all my questions in timely manner. Carmen helped me with every step during the purchase process, and it helped make the transaction complete extremely smoothly. I bought home with 2% rebate program that Jack runs and oh boy, it paid for my closing cost, I couldn't ask for anymore. I recommend everyone reading this to contact Realmart realty for their home sale, purchase needs. It comes with best service and low cost. When I heard about it, I thought this program may not work, but then thought let me give a try and the rest is a history. Prices of homes are still high in NJ and this is the way to reduce your overall cost, so get in touch with Realmart team if you are buying or selling as well. Less ... More

RealMart Realty worked great for us! They not only listed our home for a flat fee, but when we had questions or concerns, they were very responsive and knowledgeable. We saved over $30,000 by listing with RealMart Realty! Thank you to everyone that we dealt with there. -The Donahues

Listed home, but didn't sell
I was very impressed with the Realmart Realty team. Nancy and Carmen in particular were extremely responsive to our needs and made the process of selling our home less stressful. We saved a bundle on commissions too by originally signing on with owners.com who ultimately referred us to Realmart Realty. Thank you for all that you did to assist in the sale.

Helped me buy home
Jack helped us to buy a home in Millburn, NJ. The overall experience with Jack was very smooth. He is very nice to talk to and have a great understanding of how we need as a home buyer. He and his assistant are very effective and fairly responsive in communications. His business model of running realtor service is very attractive and totally worked for us. We know exactly what we like or dislike and what to look when doing the house picking and Jack helped us all the way thru the closing. The best part is the 2% rebate we got on closing. We did get all the services we needed and saved a lot of money. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
Before I bought my home, I've spent a lot of time and effort researching the real estate market. I used Zillow, Trulia plus realtors' website to find the properties in towns I like. I went to see open house. When I was ready to make an offer, I saw the advertisement and contacted Jack. He analysed market situation, devised the strategy, and presented the offer to seller's agent. The price negotiation is long and arduous. But Jack was able to defend our interest all the way. He finally got the price dropped by $50,000. We think we got the good deal. If you're a well informed home buyer like me, Jack is your first choice of buyer's agent. He's familiar with local real estate market. He's an expert on home buying/selling process. He has the first-hand knowledge of current market trend. All these are valuable. Even more valuable, THE REBATE. In a typical real estated transaction, 6% of the buyer's payment goes to realtors involved in the transaction as commission. Seller's agent and buyer's split it. If you hire a full service agent to buy a house, you'll pay your agent 3%, and seller's agent 3%. For a $500k home, that's $15,000 and $15,000. But if you do your homework well and find a dream home yourself, and all you need is hire an agent to complete the process, it makes no sense to pay the full 3%. As buyer's agent, Jack promises to give 2% back to buyer. In my case, I got $10k back. Instead of going into the pocket of agent, this money was spent on renovating the home and make it a better place for me. The 6% commision has been a dirty secret that big realtor firms try to keep. In New Jersey, they even persuaded corrupt politians to pass laws that make it illeagal to offer rebate on real estate commission. It bereaves comsumers of choices, and is totally anti-competitive. The law was repealed couple years ago. Now discount brokers, like Jack, can offer rebate to home buyers. You want to pay fair amount for the work your agent does for you. But you don't want to overpay, if you have done most of the work yourself. You want to spend your hard-earned money wisely. You want to reward your family and yourself, not an agent who overcharge you 3% commission even she does not much work for you. Make sense? Less ... More

Jack is very nice and responsive with excellent negotiation skills. Bought a home through him in 2011, saved 2% rebate. If you're sure what you what to buy and familiar with the target areas, you should definitely consider his business model than traditional agent way to save money. Thanks Jack!

The Buyer's Rebate Program was very helpful in helping us with the closing's cost of our new home.We save a lot of money in the sell and purchase of our old home and new home.

Jack is a great real estate agent. He is great to work with. He is very friendly, honest, hard-working and always represent the best of my interest. I could go to him with questions and he would always come back with a helpful answer. He also gave me useful recommendations and pointed out the specifics about houses that I would never have noticed.

Liked working with Jack. Bought a home through his agency in 2011, saved a lot of money. You should definitely consider his business model before signing with a traditional agent. It's not for everybody, but it worked for us.

My experience with Jack was phenomenal in every aspect of our selling transaction. Of course, Jack provided the expertise needed to list and sell a home; beyond this, however, he was available to guide us through all the unexpected hurdles that arise in today's real estate market. From stellar advice on contract negotiations, to in depth insights on the importance of the appraisal (and how to optimize the seller input), to the finishing issues that arise at closing, Jack proved to be an agent and an advocate with professionalism, expertise, and priceless tactical and strategic thinking. On top of this top-notch service, I saved tens of thousands on commission through listing with Realmart Realty. In the end, there really is no other choice for New Jersey real estate transactions. My sincere gratitude and respect to you Jack! Less ... More

Jack has created a whole new model for selling and buying homes. He provides several options to his clients and they can choose depending on the amount of personal time committment they are willing to make in order to save money. We saved a lot by working with Jack rather than a traditional realtor. Jack is very straightforward and open about this new model. I highly recommend speaking directly with Jack before choosing a realtor.

Jack is a honest, reliable and professional real estate broker. He is always quick on phone or email. He has rich experience with market and good estimation. As he is unique in his business style, he generally knows more than other agents. I would suggest Jack to my friends.
