The wife & I were just looking at a house and had a few questions that we called in. Jacob returned our call in a very timely matter and we decided we were not interested in the home. Jacob asked a few questions of what we were looking for and a few days later informed us of a home that was coming on the market soon and he had spoken with the agent that was going to list the property and got permission for us to view the home. Jacob found the perfect home for us and we made an offer right away. Thanks Jacob for a job well done! Less ... More

Jacob helped us through every step of the way on buying our first home. He showed us more houses than I'm sure is usual, but was always happy and eager to help. We are so pleased with him, and we'll be using his services again when we are ready to buy our next home.

It was a pleasure working with Cheyenne to find our new home. Throughout every phase of our home search, she was available to address any concerns and/or questions we may have had. She always made us feel like her #1 priority even when she was very busy. We were impressed (but not at all surprised!) by how professional she remained when faced with a listing agent who was lacking in professionalism. We will definitely come to her for any of our future real estate needs and will be recommending her to all of our friends and family. Cheyenne, thanks for making our home buying experience a great one! Less ... More

Jake is awesome!! We are first time home buyers and we couldn't have asked for a better person to handle our situation. We live out of state and it was very challenging to look for a home from so far away. From the very beginning jake was always willing to go out to listings that we saw online and be our eyes. If we had a list of questions a mile long he would take the time to find out the answer. If I called or emailed he got back to me immediately. That is such a great thing when you are dealing with such a huge decision like buying a home. When I began looking for a realtor I was afraid of dealing with a salesperson who didn't have my best interest in mind and was just trying to close a deal. Jake was a breath of fresh air. He was so honest and always said what he thought about a listing based on what we were looking for. It is a rare thing to find someone like that. We bought a home with a big piece of land and some challenges that come with it. He was always talking each thing through with us and making us think really hard about our choices before we moved forward. I genuinely appreciated that. I felt like I made the right choice based on all the facts jake helped get for us. We will never use another realtor. Less ... More

Jacob Ghena provided me with top of the line agent services and continued to follow up/ assist with any questions I had. Not only was he a pleasant to work with, he was also very knowledgeable for a first time home buyer. I had the pleasure to work with him for about two months looking at dozens of homes until I was shown my current home. Jake was the best and would recommend him to any one looking to have a hassle free house purchasing experience .

Jacob Ghena IS the total package!!! He ran a market analysis of my home to determine the proper sell price. He walked us through the listing process and gave us a few tips to do around the house maximize our profit. Jacob was also EXTREMLY helpful in the negotiation process when we received 2 offers the first week the house was vacant. We received MORE then our asking price and made a healthy profit. I would trust Jacob with any real estate transaction I have.

Jacob Ghena is an excellent real estate agent. As first time home buyers it was great to have someone walk us through each step of the buying process. He was patient, knowledgeable and made sure to draw our attention to all the small details that could be easily overlooked. He helped us find the perfect starter home. We are very grateful for his help and we will definitely be looking for his assistance again when the time comes to upgrade.

Jacob Ghena was really great to work with. He was very patient with me, and all of my last minute phone calls, asking to schedule a viewing. He was great about getting us in to see all of the houses we were interested in and he gave us great advice about the pros and cons of each house. We ended up finding a great little starter house, thanks to Jake. We will definitely ask him for help when we decide to upgrade.

Helped me buy and sell homes
We interviewed 4 realtors before we chose Cheyenne to both sell our home and help us purchase another, and man did we make the right choice! She was extremely understanding of all our worries about trying to purchase a new home contingent on the sale of ours, along with both of us working full time and raising a family. She gave us the encouragement we needed to take the first step without being too pushy and had all the knowledge needed to guide us along the way. It had been several years since we purchased a home (and we'd never sold one) and Cheyenne was so patient and took all the time we needed to really explain the ins and outs of our various offers/counter offers/negotiations - sometimes over and over - until we really understood. I always felt she had our beat interests at heart through the whole process. We truly appreciate how she always made herself available with our busy schedules and if we needed something in a time crunch when she just couldn't do it, she'd offer to find a colleague who could. She made an extremely intimidating process manageable, and now we're settling into our new home and loving it! Less ... More

Cheyenne with the Alba Group was our 4th realtor we have worked with and by far the best, she answered all our questions and always kept us informed every step of the way. Our past realtors were always busy busy busy and we felt like we were burdening them with questions, I am sure Cheyenne was equally busy but we never felt rushed or like we were burdening her with questions. We highly recommend working with the Alba group we wouldn't have requested or wished anything was done differently.

Being a second time home buyer I had a certain standard I expected Vic to live up to in accordance to professionalism, and the interest he would have in my transaction. Vic exceeded every expectation I could have of him. He had a keen eye to every detail in my contract, and went to bat for the things I wished to be credited for after home inspection. Vic was always available for me to contact for every question and concern whether it be a serious issue, or a silly inquisition, and generously gave his time without ever making me seem like a burden. He is a man you can tell truly takes pride in his profession, and I look forward to working with him again in the future. Thank you for all your hard work Vic, it was a pleasure doing business with you! Less ... More

We can't say enough good about Vic! He professionally navigated us through the process of selling our home in a challenging market. We've had a variety of experiences with different agents over the years but working with Vic was markedly different. He was personable, knew his stuff, and really bent over backwards to make everything as easy for us as possible. We have recommended him to all our friends who are looking for an agent.

I cannot recommend Vic highly enough, he walked me through purchasing my first home and went above and beyond what I was expecting. As this was my first home purchase I had lots of questions, Vic was always there to answer whatever questions I had and always give the information that was needed to make a good decision. I don't think I would have gotten nearly as good of a price or had such a smooth experience if it was not for Vic. From start to finish I don't think I could have had a better first time buyer's experience without all the input and insights from Vic. Less ... More

Vic did an excellent job of selling our home. He knew what our home was worth, how we should perpare it for marketing. We avoided wasting money and time making changes that were not needed. He knew how to talk with lenders and negotiate with other real estate agents. He made us feel comfortable, he made us laugh and he listened to what we wanted, and gave us confidence when we needed it. He had a simple way of explaining the complicated paperwork that made us feel that we knew what we were doing each step of the way. You really can't ask for more then that! Less ... More

When I was looking for a Real Estate Agent I needed someone who understood investment properties and return on investment. Vic really helped me find the right investment property and his level of professionalism and expertise far surpassed my greatest expectations. Even after we negotiated a great price he was able to make the deal even better by his expertise in the market. By far the easiest Real Estate transaction I ever had (and I've had many). I would never even consider working with another Real Estate agent. Less ... More

We worked with Vic Nicolescu very intensely over the course of almost 5 years to purchase what ended up being two homes, one in Eagle Point and one in Medford. Not only was Vic very responsive and knowledgeable, he was very patient in terms of taking the time to educate us on real estate investment. He helped us analyze properties that we were interested in through the use of investment return models. He was very generous with his time and knowledge. We look forward to the time when we will be able to move from Alaska to Medford and cultivate our friendship with Vic! Less ... More

Searching more than 5 years for a new "retirement" home we worked with real estate agents in several states, so when we say that Vic Nicolescu is the absolute BEST, we are not only sincere, but experienced "evaluators". In all honesty, if you are looking for real estate in Jackson County OREGON (a GREAT spot), Vic is the agent you want to enlist. We can't say enough nice things about him: upbeat, friendly, knowlegeable, no "hard sale" pressure, and unlike previous agents, when we really truly needed to "close the deal" on the home of our dreams, he delivered, quickly, smoothly & with great skill. Not only do we value his professional skills, but we value an "enduring" friendship with him. THANK YOU VIC, ever so much!! Less ... More
