We have dealt with a few agents over the years but we can honestly say that Jalaj was by far the most pleasant and professional agent we have had the pleasure of working with. He is extremely articulate when it comes to even the smallest of details making sure we were notified of absolutely everything. He has a calmness and mild manner that put us at ease right away. He certainly is very good at his “trade” and knows the profession very well.
His years of experience is very evident and while very professional and very gentleman like, he always has a warm smile on his face. We highly recommend him to anyone who is wanting an honest hard working realtor. He sold our home in 3 days and for OVER ASKING!!! Thanks Jalaj. We can’t wait to have you over for coffee!

We have known Jalaj for the last 8 years having worked with him in purchase of our starter home. It was a pleasant experience at the time for he accommodated our schedule which involved commute from out of town with public transit. His insightful opinion helped crystallize our thoughts on what made a suitable first home that fitted our budget.This year due to the growing spatial need of our family, we felt comfortable working with Jalaj again to buy another house. At the beginning of the buying process he advised that we should have a financial pre-qualification in place to ensure that the home we purchased was within our means taking into account the recent volatile housing market. He worked to meet our needs in terms of space requirement, location, yardage and character of the house. He negotiated with the seller to get us the best price for the house and to get deficiencies identified during the home inspection corrected expeditiously.
In the sale of our starter home, we received valuable advice on the qualities that attract buyers to a house. In particular cleanliness, lack of clutter, organisation, color choice, fixtures and home pricing. In following through on his advice we were able to sell within two days for full list price and no conditions attached.
Jalaj is very professional, timely, knowledgeable in his trade and personable. He walks you through the process of buying and selling articulately and maintains relationships well beyond transaction period. He has our highest recommendation.
– Juliet and Daniel
Writing this review wasn’t easy. It is next to impossible to convey Jalaj’s outstanding qualities as a Realtor, as the focus should really fall on who Jalaj is as an individual.
Jalaj is a genuine, caring and knowledgeable person, who above all, cares for the people he meets.
I have but admiration, gratitude and respect for Jalaj’s ethics and commitment, which are part of his approach, from the beginning of the home buying process and well after it.
Jalaj listens, however, he will insure that both his client’s emotional and financial needs are met. In our case, as first-time home buyers, Jalaj’s support, obligation and trustability, were the key to our home.
I will never forget Jalaj’s enthusiasm when he knew he found mine and my husband’s home. He did so with the same readiness in which he cautioned us not to purchase other properties, for reasons we may have later regretted. No Agenda.
We are forever grateful for Jalaj’s commitment. Jalaj has become first and foremost our friend, then Realtor (for life).

Our Real Estate Agent, Mr. Jalaj Arora, is a man of integrity. He is hard working, energetic and very professional.
He is detailed oriented and follows through diligently every step of the way. Mr Arora gives his clients detailed explanation in simple terms and is available when you need him.
– Naila and Saeed
Working with Jalaj was an excellent experience. As first time sellers we were skeptical in choosing our agent, however after meeting Jalaj we were very convinced to be in the right hands. We were swept away by his honesty, simplicity and spontaneous professionalism with paper work.Thank you for your constant guidance and reminders that you keep us posted with even after the sale of the house which certainly makes us feel that we are not alone.
We will certainly recommend Jalaj Arora to our friends and family because for the personal touch you give to every sale and purchase, starting from mortgage contacts, carpet cleaners, Cleaning lady, to friendly reminders.
Thanks once again for all your help, support and guidance.

We were very pleased to work with Jalaj first time 4 years ago when we purchased our first house in Burlington. Recently, when we found ourselves needing a realtor again to sell our house; our decision to ask Jalaj to act for us was an easy one.
Jalaj was very helpful in assisting us in our house search 4 years ago. He was professional, organized, and honest in pointing out both the positives and negatives of the houses he showed us. We never felt pressured in doing anything we weren’t 100% comfortable with. Being first time home buyers in Canada, we were a bit apprehensive and nervous at first, not knowing what to expect or how the entire home buying process would work, but Jalaj helped us feel at ease immediately. He walked us through every step of the way, from house shopping, to putting in an offer, to scheduling our home inspection, making the initial contact with a lawyer, and even setting us up with the banking specialist. Jalaj found us our dream home at that time which we would cherish forever.
Recently when we decided to sell our house at a short notice, Jalaj came to our rescue. Jalaj was extremely attentive, honest and professional as usual. His knowledge of Burlington and neighborhood market, as well as his online resourcefulness, made it easy for us to list the house at right time and price. His team of professional photographers, interior decorators and painters made it very easy for us to get our home in top shape and list in a timely manner. He had done due diligence on all aspects of the sale of our house; we appreciated all the work he did to ensure the house sold quickly. He always went an extra mile to stay in touch and follow-up even after the sale is complete.
Jalaj was always a phone call, email, or text message away if we had any questions, and we had tons of them. He was very accommodating with meeting times, often working around our crazy work schedule, meeting us late in the evening or on weekends. Our meetings were always fun and we always left laughing, which is great during what can be a very stressful time. Jalaj has become more of a friend to us than a realtor.
Our home buying and selling experience was a pleasurable and stress free one all because of Jalaj; we would not hesitate to call Jalaj and his team again.
Jalaj came highly recommended to us by one of our friends, and we would of course give a glowing recommendation and suggest him to everyone from other first time home buyers, to experienced home buyers and sellers alike to help them achieve their real estate goals. He is reliable, knowledgeable, friendly, honest and unbelievably competent at his job. He will put you first and get the job done!

Thank you to Jalaj Arora and his associates for selling our Milton home.
We knew that we were selling into a hot ‘sellers market’ and were not sure how to approach the sale. We have known Jalaj Arora and his family for several years and we know that he is a full-time professional realtor living in Milton who knows the local and adjacent markets.
So we chose Jalaj to sell our home. Jalaj looked through our home and advised us of minor repairs we needed to complete, and he recommended to us how to market our home. We were advised of how to present our home to potential buyers – what needed to be changed, rearranged and purged from our home – and he scheduled photographers for both interior and overhead photos. The final marketing package was first class.
Then we had to decide on selling strategy. Do we set the price for a conventional sale, or do we set the price to attract multiple offers? Jalaj reviewed with us features and prices of recent sales in our area to determine probable sale price.
We did decide to try to attract multiple offers, and set the price accordingly. So the ‘For Sale – Coming Soon’ sign was posted and potential buyers were advised when offers would be accepted. So then the viewings started. They were frequent and many over a 5-day period – not much fun but the scheduling through the ReMax office and communications from Jalaj were prompt and complete.
We did attract multiple offers and then we realised that having a professional realtor was critical. Offers came in with conditions, and from foreign buyers. So Jalaj had to work through the conditions, consider regulations for foreign buyers, and he had to be cautious about potential buyer’s ability to qualify for financing. So negotiations took about three hours and the sale was completed.
We would highly recommend Jalaj to other sellers or buyers. He knows the market, he understands house construction details, his communications are prompt and detailed, and he is a very pleasant individual to work with.

Thank you Jalaj for a job well done!
Michael and I had a wonderful experience choosing you as our real estate agent. We salute your professionalism and understanding which was par excellence.
Communication is a key for any form of success and for a real estate deal to fall in place. Jalaj, you did this exceptionally well and to our satisfaction. You were always quick to return calls and never out of reach to calm any concerns we had and made it stress free for us.
Your knowledge of the current market and your attention to every detail helped us understand what a potential buyer is looking for in a home. You believed in your clients’ expectation and worked your magic to achieve success in the sale of our home.
Please thank your office staff on our behalf for being pleasant and easy to deal with.
You went above and beyond and we would highly recommend you to our circle of family and friends. Keep up the good work and we look forward to continue this relationship in the future.
– Maria & Michael
We had the opportunity to work with Jalaj over the past year while we were searching for our first home and had a very positive experience. During this time we were able to experience first hand, the professionalism that Jalaj displays. He was extremely patient, reliable, thorough, knowledgeable, and flexible throughout our home search. We appreciated his honesty and for being up front with us. He was never pushy and we never felt pressured to make any decisions, it always felt that Jalaj had our best interests in mind. During a stressful time we felt comfortable working with someone who we could trust and who was readily available to us.
We would not hesitate to use Jalaj again and would definitely recommend Jalaj to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks Jalaj for all of your hard work!

Jalaj Arora is an outstanding real estate agent. Before choosing an agent to help us find a new home and sell our existing home, we interviewed about 6 other agents. Jalaj separated himself from the rest, he was well prepared, thoughtful, and detail-oriented, he provided us with valuable information and asked the right questions in order to identify and meet our needs. He easily gained our trust and confidence.
We found Jalaj to be very dedicated, almost as if we were his only clients, although we know that was not the case. Jalaj values integrity and honesty and demonstrated exceptional work ethics and outstanding interpersonal skills, we find him extremely professional, reliable, caring and helpful. His experience and extensive knowledge of the Milton real estate market and ability to understand our needs made the whole experience a pleasurable one. With his help, we purchased our desired home at a great price and our existing home was sold in 3 days at a fantastic price. In our personal opinion, a real estate agent like Jalaj is rare to find.
We look forward to working with Jalaj in the future and we strongly recommend him as a real estate agent.

A HUMONGOUS shout out to JALAJ ARORA of Milton Re/Max for not only selling our house FIRM on first day of offers, BUT also getting us nearly 10% higher than asking price! We will be sad to leave Milton but are not moving too far away.
If any of our friends are looking for an incredible (honest, upfront and terrific!) agent, Jalaj is definitely your man! Having used him for both buying and selling, we are confident to say he is a world class agent!
Xoxo thanks again Jalaj!
– Meredith & James
We have had a great experience with Jalaj Arora as our realtor.
We sincerely want to thank Jalaj for every minute he helped us do this. He completely out did himself and we are ecstatic that not only did we find our dream home, we also sold our existing house for more than asking price in 3 days!!!
From the moment we called Jalaj to help us look for a home and sell our current house, he was guiding us, offering his expertise, and keeping us on track. His organizational skills, prompt reply to our questions/concerns, meticulous attention to detail, concern for our well being as a family and overall knowledge of the Milton real estate area, made this whole experience easy and stress free. We greatly appreciated his resourcefulness and connection to financial institutions, painters, stager, home inspectors and lawyers. They have all been great!
We appreciate Jalaj’s professionalism and friendship. We are happy to not only call him our realtor but our family friend.
“We look forward to having you over at our new place, Jalaj!”

A big “Thank You” to the best Realtor in town…..Jalaj Arora!!
My husband and I met Jalaj 5 years ago when we were looking to buy a home in Milton. He was very personable, never pushy and very honest with us about everything. He was always available when needed and always kept on top of the new listings to ensure we were one of the first ones into the properties we wanted to view.
Now 5 years later, not only is he a good friend of ours but Jalaj has gone above and beyond in helping us buy our forever family home ….. and selling our current home in 3 days above asking price.
We highly recommend Jalaj for any of your real estate needs!!
– Sarah & Andrew
Buying a home is an exciting and new adventure. But it can also be an exhaustive, nerve-racking and frankly confusing experience if you don’t have all of the facts. If you’ve never been through this before, you definitely need a real estate professional; OR perhaps you have, but felt like the process could have been better… Then you need Jalaj Arora.
Jalaj consistently brings unbelievable guidance, a kindness we’ve never experienced with other realtors as well as an amazing intelligence of emergent trends in an ever changing marketplace. Jalaj’s organization skills, dedication to his clients and overall attention to detail is why he is our number one choice – for us, our family and also consistently recommended to our friends. Jalaj has a true understanding of the real estate business. That detailed attention was well apparent with our own sale where he ensured that not only our documentation was 100% accurate, but the corresponding real estate agents’ as well. He assured our contractual safety first and foremost. Without that attention and knowledge-base of the business, our house sale would not have been as smooth as it was. Thank you Jalaj!
If you want the best – go to Jalaj.

We would like to thank Jalaj again for his dedication and support throughout our home selling process. We have worked with Jalaj three times (two sales and one purchase) and were impressed by his dedication, commitment and knowledge throughout our selling and buying processes.
For our most recent home sale Jalaj brought a wealth of knowledge and experience and helped us to sell quickly, with multiple offers and for above asking price. Jalaj was professional from start to finish and provided valuable services including professional photos, detailed fact sheets and listing packages, staging, a broker open house and his own personal insight. Jalaj and his team provided excellent customer service! He ensured that we knew what was happening throughout the process, that all of our questions were answered and that we were well taken care of. During our photo session Jalaj went so far as to spend time with our dog while we were away to ensure that he was not scared.
Jalaj provided us with valuable advice throughout the offer process. Both my wife and I found multiple offers to be a little overwhelming, however Jalaj helped us to break things down, understand the pros and cons of each offer and to develop an appropriate strategy to maximize the value of our home.
Jalaj is more than our realtor. He is our friend and someone we respect and rely on.
It is with great pleasure that we recommend Jalaj for your realty needs. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Jalaj in the future.
– Andrew & Giselle
We wanted to thank Jalaj for all his support. Even before we listed, he was a great help, answering all our question and putting our minds at ease. Listing your home with little kids can be hectic but Jalaj was always available, making our sale a great experience. In addition to all the support, the staging, photographs and overall marketing were great which I am sure helped us sell so quickly. Sold in 48 hours and for 99.5% of asking!! We could not have asked for anything more and would recommend Jalaj to our family and friends.
Thank you for everything, Jalaj.
– Amy & Les
Jalaj Arora from ReMax Real Estate Centre in Milton listed our century home which my wife had owned for 34 years. A century home is one of those homes that only beckons to those who can appreciate the features including the woodwork in these older homes, so it takes someone who knows how special these homes are to buy one. From the start Jalaj put together all of the information we shared with him on our home in Milton. He took countless pictures of the inside and outside of the house to use for the on-line ad.
Our home took a while to sell however, Jalaj always remained upbeat and gave us options and advice on what steps we needed to take as we worked together to get the house sold. Jalaj always kept us informed of the results of any viewings and passed along the comments of not only the viewing agents but their clients as well. We can honestly say that Jalaj worked tirelessly to help us sell the house which helped reduce the stress and anxiety that goes along with moving from a house we knew as “home” for so many years.
Jalaj not only became our Realtor but also a friend who we grew to trust and admire. He is honest, trustworthy, dedicated and a great family man. We would not hesitate to recommend him to one of our close personal friends if they were in the market to sell or buy home.
– Pat & Stan
It is with great pleasure and gratitude that we share our comments on our experience with Jalaj Arora in the listing and sale of our home. While we have sold other homes in the past, we have never encountered such a high level of excellence!
The experience at each phase of the sales effort was superior. Jalaj Arora used innovative efforts in developing prospects, useful insights on pre-listing renovations and staging, and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations. All of these tasks were accomplished with a high degree of competence, professionalism, integrity, and, in our opinion, perfection! Jalaj’s skills became evident when our home sold in less than 24 hours! He was so attentive to our needs and requests that we often felt as if we were his only clients, which we knew was not the case. As if that was not enough, Jalaj also has a fantastic personality – one in which made us feel comfortable and confident. These qualities set him apart from all of the others. Thank you for everything and we wish you continued success.
– Tony & Jennifer
A few words to let you know how appreciative we are of you Jalaj.
You have the ability to understand your clients needs and make the whole real estate “thing” experience, a pleasurable one.
When we first met you, we thougt you were the one! The one that could sell our home that is….. and we were more happy with the service and guidance you’ve provided. But the greatest thing was how fast you presented and sold our house. Imagine, it sold within a matter of 30 hours and got our asking price.
You are extremely professional, reliable, patient and demonstrated exceptional skills in negotiation.
We would certainly recommend you to our friends, family and anyone interested in selling their home.

Thank you Jalaj, you have been so kind and professional in dealing throughout the process of buying our new home and selling our old home. We feel blessed having you as our Realtor. You walked us through the entire process of buying and selling our home. Thanks for being part of our home buying and selling process.
Our home buying was amazing experience and you continuously guided us to make a right choice in selecting our new home that we love.
Your have extensive knowledge of the current market, builders, models, and various locations in Milton. Hence, for selling our home, you priced our home so precisely that it led to a smooth sale.
You have been a thorough professional personality and focused on customer need.
We would recommend Jalaj and his team for any home selling or buying, and assure you that he will not let you down.
– Lalit & Bindu
We recently sold our first home and bought our second home with Jalaj. From the moment he walks into your home he makes you feel at ease with the whole process. He has all the tools and people in his team to make it a very smooth and stress free transition.
Jalaj treated us like family, as if he was buying the home for his own family. He ensured we were prepared every step of the way. He was very professional and patient with us. He helped us to understand what we needed to look for as well as what buyers look for when purchasing a home. He ensured we had the right tools to sell our home.
Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you can make in life and we put our trust and faith in Jalaj. He never let us down. We would highly recommend Jalaj as a real estate agent and we would definitely use him again.
– Nicole & Peter
Our first ever home selling experience with Jalaj was absolutely amazing. We did not know Jalaj before contacting him to sell our house. His advertising and marketing gained our attention and we are glad it did.
From the moment he walked in to our home for our first meeting Jalaj was nothing but kind, courteous, respectful, professional, and wise. He gained our trust at this first meeting. We would quickly put Jalaj to the test as we wanted to list right away and he was up to the challenge. Within 2 days a great stager was in, an amazing photographer was used and we were listed. During this stressful time in general for selling our first home, Jalaj’s professionalism was unmatched and kept our minds at ease. There was constant immediate communication and advice via emails, texts, and phone calls.
Needless to say our place sold right away thanks to Jalaj. MORE THAN ASKING!!!!! We are very thankful for all that Jalaj has done and is not only our real estate agent now and for any future home selling or purchases but he has also become our trusted friend. Thanks again Jalaj.
– Kaley & Mark
We recently listed our Milton townhouse for sale with Jalaj. The experience was by far the smoothest real estate transaction we’ve ever had. Jalaj is incredibly organized, and kept us on track while we were preparing our house for sale. He kept us up-to-date on the process at every step of the way, and provided the necessary insight/advice to help us make decisions as we went. Jalaj did a fantastic job of helping us understand industry specific terminology, giving us a sense of comfort. He provided outstanding research and insight into our local market, and recommended a listing price that resulted in multiple offers – all higher than any other similar homes on our street. Thanks to Jalaj, our home was sold over asking price in under a week! Given that we have a couple of kids, it was a great relief to have sale of the home wrapped up as quickly as we did, while still exceeding our expectations on price.
We would wholeheartedly recommend Jalaj to all of our friends and family. He is an outstanding real estate professional, and brings a friendly, classy approach to what can be a very challenging business. If you want to get incredible results on the sale of your home, he’s your agent!

Recently, we had the pleasure of having Jalaj Arora as our agent both in selling and buying residential Real Estate in Milton and let me tell you our experience with Jalaj was flawless.
Jalaj has honestly renewed our faith in Real Estate Agents. He is extremely knowledgeable, very strategic and gave us exceptional advice right from the start. He is there with you every step of the way to educate, support and guide you. A true gentleman and a rare find. He is trustworthy, dependable and went above and beyond what was expected of him.
Is he that good you’re asking? The answer simply is… YES.
Thank you Jalaj…. for everything!

We recently sold our home in Milton, Ontario and had the good fortune to acquire Jalaj Arora as our real estate agent. As with most sales, there were some obstacles incurred during the course of the sale. We had a conditional offer on another property and our prospective buyer was slow to make a decision. As the deadline grew nearer, Jalaj kept us informed every step of the way, rushing over at all times of the day and night for signatures and many times giving us very good advice on how to proceed.
We would recommend Jalaj to anyone buying or selling a home. We found him very professional and honest from start to finish always taking the time to explain legal jargon in non-industry terms that we could understand.
Thanks again, Jalaj!

When we began the process of selling our home we encountered a difficult situation where unfortunately we had to dismiss a previous agent who was not meeting our needs. This created a lot of stress for us because we had purchased a house prior to selling and we were working on a strict timeline. Then a friend recommended Jalaj to us and from the minute we met him we knew we were in good hands and that he would provide excellent service as our Listing agent. He demonstrated professionalism and expertise at all times. He was very approachable at all of our meetings or during our phone and email conversations. We really appreciated his honesty and the fact that he listens to his client’s needs and works hard to ensure their happiness. Jalaj is associated with expert stagers who came in for a visit and gave us advice on how to make our home look immaculate and ready to sell. He made sure to contact any agents who visited our home to obtain any feedback and we received the news promptly. Our listing brochures were outstanding and were designed using great detail and organization. We were very thankful that Jalaj provided us with all the active listings and sales in our neighborhood on a weekly basis which kept us up to date with what was going on in the market. This allowed us to move forward quickly when a price adjustment was needed.. We were very happy to sell our house at a decent price and most importantly within the time limit needed.
Overall working with Jalaj has been a wonderful experience and it was our pleasure to meet him and we will definitely keep in touch. He is a true asset to the Re/Max team and we would highly recommend him to our family and friends.Thank you Jalaj for all your hard work.

Me and my wife recently purchased our second house through Jalaj. We came to know Jalaj through a reference in 2011 when we started looking for a home in Milton. We were just trying to get an idea of the market and Jalaj was very helpful in providing the market data at that time. He followed up very promptly this year once we were ready. He knew our requirements very well and the listings he forwarded to us very closely matched our requirements.
We sold our house in Brantford and had only a month and half to find another house in Milton. Jalaj was very confident that he will be able to find us a house in this period. We were in fact able to find a house we liked within 10 days. Jalaj spent a lot of time with us during this time showing the houses. We are impressed by his professionalism and knowledge of the market. He worked with us explaining the pros and cons of the house and giving his valuable opinion about the neighbourhood and the future developments. Never during the negotiations we found ourselves pressured by him to finalize the deal and it was very clear that he was working for us in getting the best house at the lowest price.
To summarize we were highly impressed by his professionalism, extremely quick response and knowledge of the area. We would very highly recommend Jalaj to anyone.
– Najaf & Mehreen
My husband Roberto and I recently had the great pleasure of working with Jalaj. Our home was sold within 24 hours of being put up for sale and we received over asking price. This fact alone speaks volumes for our appreciation of Jalaj’s diligent preparation and hard work.
Surprisingly, it was not the selling of our home which impressed us the most. It was Jalaj’s extreme patience when we were looking for a new home which was above and beyond anything I have seen in any type of salesperson. He truly treats people with dignity. I never felt pressured into buying anything, all my calls were returned within minutes and he was always on time for every appointment. He made us feel as though we were his only clients. Jalaj exudes professionalism, honesty, and integrity.
In spite of Jalaj’s efforts in our house search we ended up having a house built. Jalaj did not make us feel like we wasted his time. In fact, he sent us a very heartfelt congratulatory note. The agents I have dealt with in the past had one eye on their watches and were constantly trying to rush us into making decisions. I would have been terrified to tell them we went with a builder.
Selling and buying a home is one of the most stressful times in a person’s life and an agent has to play the role of mediator, calming factor, optimist, realist, shoulder to cry on, etc…It takes a special and kind person to do this and Jalaj has established himself in all these roles. It’s not always about the dollars and cents…it is about building a reputation in your community.
We plan on using Jalaj’s services again within the next three years (I am hoping Jalaj will keep an eye out for my dream home) and we will recommend him to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable agent who goes above and beyond the call of duty.
– Rupa & Roberto
This was our first time selling and buying a home and we had no idea what to expect. We were referred to Jalaj by a family member who recently sold their home through Jalaj. We knew from the first meeting with Jalaj that he was the right agent for us to sell and purchase a home.
Jalaj walked us through the whole process as he was very patient and understanding of our lack of knowledge and he walked us through every line of the buying and selling contracts and explained/outlined every detail. His selling and buying negotiating skills were very impressive.
Jalaj sold our home in 4 days and through the whole process, Jalaj was pleasant and very professional and his dedication to us was incredible as he made the experience fun for us and our family. He was always in constant contact with us, not just when he needed to.
When buying our home, Jalaj acted like he is buying his own home as he never left us alone and advised us of everything in every home we looked at. He worked with us every step of the way and if he felt a home was not right for us, even if we thought it was, he would offer his views and opinions. Jalaj always said “I would not try to sell you a house that I would not buy for my family”.
We highly recommend Jalaj to anyone who is buying and/or selling their home and we would not think twice about using him again in the future.
Jalaj is not only a “great” agent but he has become a good friend.
– Aprile & Richard
It is now four years ago that my wife Rosemary first met Jalaj Arora at an open house, and in the ensuing period Jalaj has become not only a family friend but he has found our daughter her first house and has more recently both sold our home in Mississauga and found us a new residence in Milton.
We are, therefore, grateful for his insight, patience and understanding demonstrated throughout the sale and purchase process. During the past twelve months we have never felt pressured and have constantly been impressed by his professionalism, attention to detail and understanding of our needs. He has been both a knowledgeable advisor and a very capable expediter. In addition, other agents clearly find it a pleasure to work with him and that proved to be a real advantage for us as clients. We have personally learned a lot through the journey we have taken together and want Jalaj to know our door will always be open to him when he is in our neighborhood.
“You truly made a real difference in our search for a new home and so we know you can do the same for others. Thank you so much, we are very grateful for all you have done and are most appreciative of your professionalism in all aspects of the sale and purchase process. With thanks and best wishes for a prosperous future.”

We first met Jalaj when we contacted him to show us one of his listings in the Milton area. We immediately connected with Jalaj. Jalaj took the time to ask questions in terms of our wants & needs, made suggestions about next steps, which included accessing a pre-approval and ensuring that our credit records were cleared. We are definitely not new to the home buying/selling process, however Jalaj still ensured that we understood the process & were grounded & educated about the community of interest, which included searching for and locating school districts in our selected community. His professionalism, knowledge of real estate trends & his expertise are remarkable. In our 15 years of real estate investing, including the purchases of my own home, we have not come across this level of professionalism & integrity. We are grateful to his aggressive, but gentle approach to negotiating, his enthusiasm, energy & dedication to his work.
Following the completion of our sale agreement, we immediately listed our current home with Jalaj & it SOLD in two days. This was primarily due to his marketing skills, market evaluation of our home & complementary staging advice that he provided. Jalaj is definitely a keeper & we hope to continue to build not just a professional, but a lasting friendship.
– Claudia & Bernie
We want to express our deepest thanks to Jalaj, for his amazing support as our realtor in helping us sell our first home.
Jalaj started out as our real estate agent, but quickly became our trusted friend. He was always accessible and provided knowledge and experience that greatly assisted in our decision making process. He was always professional, honest and on time!
We have already begun recommending Jalaj to our friends and family, and look forward to our continuing partnership.
– Raymond & Christy
We met Jalaj at an open house in Milton back in March 2012. Right away we got a sense of Jalaj’s knowledge and professionalism. Approximately one week after we were at the open house Jalaj had sent us a personalized card thanking us for the visit and letting us know he was available for questions. We were not ready to buy at that point but let him know we would be more prepared in a few months. Jalaj was not pushy and assured us he would be there when we were ready to start the process.
Sure enough a few months went by and we reached out to Jalaj. Jalaj quickly set up appointments for us to find our dream house. On the house viewings Jalaj was extremely informative showing us things to look for as well as different things to consider when buying. When we were ready to put an offer on a house, Jalaj was extremely thorough explaining the process and answering any questions we had along the way. We’d like to also mention that along the way Jalaj was very prompt when replying to email messages and phone calls, he also came through on recommendations for a lawyer and home inspector.
Buying your first house can seem like a daunting task, we were extremely happy to have Jalaj as our real estate agent to help us through the journey. We would HIGHLY recommend Jalaj to anyone one thinking of buying a home.

Jalaj was excellent from the very beginning. When we first met with him he was fully prepared with a presentation detailing thorough information about the housing market in our area, explaining everything to us in full detail. We were especially impressed by Jalaj’s professional, friendly and honest approach to conducting business. He continuously gave us good and honest advices, providing us with all the information and options we needed to make decisions. Jalaj was always reachable and flexible, working around and accommodating to our schedules. His attention to details was impeccable as he oversaw every aspect of the legal documents and paperwork. We are very thankful to have chosen Jalaj to work with; with his help we were able to sell our home quickly and for the right price.
We definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a professional realtor. We wish him all the best for the future.

My husband and I are new to the selling and buying house market, and we were really unsure as to how to actually begin searching for a home and sell ours at the same time. I contacted Jalaj, and right away he put my mind at ease with clear information and a game plan. He was really flexible in terms of arranging a time to meet with myself and my husband, and when he arrived for our first appointment, he was phenomenally prepared – he had every question answered in no time. Right away, my husband and I felt we were in good hands.
Jalaj consistently kept in touch with both my husband and I – he sent us e-mails of listings we could mark as “favourites” (which I loved), and was able to answer any question I had at any time. Jalaj also provided a staging appointment for us, which really helped us get out home ready for sale. When it came time to show our home, he was fantastic! I felt very comfortable leaving our home in his capable hands. Seeing as we sold our home in two days, I’d say he did a perfect job!
As for helping us to look for our new home, Jalaj hit a home run with the second house he showed us! He had obviously paid special attention to our needs as a large family on a strict budget, and he found us a home that far exceeded our expectations. Jalaj proceeded to help us negotiate a fair price for the new home, and was incredibly professional. I cannot believe we were able to purchase our dream home for less than list, but Jalaj made this happen! My husband and I could not be more happy! Come the end of June, our family will undoubtedly transition smoothly from our home in Milton to our new home in Burlington – all thanks to Jalaj!
Maria and I have been thinking of moving for some time now. We have outgrown our current house with the addition of Olivia. We have been looking to move to Milton and have been attending open houses and researching properties on MLS. Meeting you at the open house was a great experience. We valued your honesty and straightforwardness. We would like to thank you for making this a positive experience and for not only having our best interests at heart but for educating us and helping us find the perfect house. You were available at all times and you made us feel like we were your only clients. We started with a business relationship which has now grown to much more. Maria and I both agree that we would highly recommend you to family and friends. We will certainly keep in touch.

We would like to thank you for your assistance in the purchase of our new house.
You went out of way to assist in our needs, even during the time we were still in South Africa. This is highly commendable and we must thank you for this. You assisted in helping with other information and details such as places to buy household goods, shopping centres, and general knowledge information we did not have at that time, much appreciated.
Even at the last minute when things went a little off-course with the move into the house, you came to our rescue, this is going out of your way and making sure the whole transaction, from inception to final closure and moving into the house was complete.
We will certainly put your name forward to anyone in need of property buying or selling, as we think you are one of the most helpful and sincere person to do business with. You were very professional in your handling of the transaction and we were very pleased with your kindness and help. You even assisted with post collection and bringing it to our house, thank you for this as well. There are many other things which you assisted us with, which I am sure is not part of normal agency policy, and we thank you for this as well.
Many thanks for all your assistance as we have now settled-in and still moving around, although within the house itself?

My wife and I recently purchased our first home through Jalaj.
Jalaj was very helpful. He patiently walked us through every step of purchasing a home and was thorough in his explanations. We found him very knowledgeable and keen to help us with our questions; Jalaj’s responses were always immediate.
Jalaj always acted with our best interests in mind and paid close attention to what we were saying in order to set up the most desirable viewings. After our first day of viewings, Jalaj had a very good understanding of the type of home we were looking for. We felt like we could speak openly and honestly about our preferences and never felt pressured. Jalaj was always on our side about things and even said on more than one occasion that his job was to find the best home for us.
We felt that Jalaj was working very hard for us and appreciated that he was able to set up 3+ hour evening viewings for us since we were coming from out of town. His flexibility made it very easy for us.
Overall our experience was nothing but positive with Jalaj and we would have no hesitation about recommending him to our friends and family.

We were looking in the Milton area for a home, and met Jalaj through one of his open houses and he seemed very genuine and enthusiastic….and although we currently had a real estate agent that we had worked with in the past, we decided to try working with Jalaj, and we were not disappointed.
Over three months Jalaj took us to many, many showings as we were not 100% clear on what we were looking for. But he showed an enormous amount of patience, as we worked through what we wanted, finally settling on a newer home in Milton. The home is beautiful and Jalaj was very professional as he conducted the negotiations.
We also used Jalaj on the sale of our home and ended getting above asking price and sold within one week…..what more can anyone ask for!!
It is not an easy task to sell and purchase a new home, but Jalaj made the experience very enjoyable and relaxing.
Hopefully we do not need his services in the near future (strange thing to say, but I think you know what I mean), but if we do, we would not hesitate to use Jalaj again.

Before choosing an agent to represent us in the sale of our home my husband and I interviewed seven different candidates. Not knowing exactly what we were looking for in an agent we knew we found the right agent after we spoke with Jalaj Arora. We were impressed with his professionalism and polite manner in which he presented us with a well researched and fair market analysis of our home. He discussed with us the current market trends addressing some of the many difficulties sellers are placing themselves in during this recession by not pricing their house correctly. In addition to his knowledge base of the real estate market, Jalaj impressed us with his friendly, relaxed and sincere nature. He believed in the value of our home and put us at ease while we were facing the sale of our home during a buyer’s market.
Throughout the process, Jalaj promptly provided feedback after showings and continually informed us listings within the area, both of which bolstered our confidence that our house was priced accurately for the market. Jalaj demonstrated great enthusiasm for us when an offer was placed after our third showing. During negations he was very calm, polite and provided support for our list price in a tactful manner. We are very pleased, that with Jalaj as our agent, our house sold less than two weeks from the list date and for over 97% of the asking price. Jalaj continued to provide after sale service by helping us to follow up after an unexpected result from the home inspection. He also continued to provide information about listings in the area which further justified for us that we received top dollar for our home. This was our first home and therefore our first house sale, because of Jalaj, we will always remember this as a great experience. My husband and I would highly recommend his services as a real estate agent.

We would like to express our great appreciation for the service that Jalaj gave us. We met Jalaj for the first time about two weeks ago when my husband Jack called him and requested an agent. We met the following day and Jalaj came prepared with all the information we needed to put our house on the market. We signed with Jalaj on Saturday and by Tuesday our house was SOLD. Also Jalaj kept us updated about new listings in our area. To us it felt like we where dealing with a friend and not an agent.
We are very very happy with REMAX and Jalaj. The way Jalaj dealt with the other agent was exceptional. He was calm and relaxed. We got what we wanted: A house SOLD in very little time with a price we are happy with. In these times where the real estate market isn’t very good to the seller we got the best price.
We would recommend Jalaj to anybody selling in Milton & Oakville and we already did. We hope to work with Jalaj in the future too.

My wife and I recently purchased our first home after moving from Vancouver last year. We came in contact with Jalaj Arora after meeting him while he was conducting an Open House in Milton in the summer of 2008. At that time, we were new to Ontario and unfamiliar with the Real Estate market and Ontario in general. When we met Jalaj, we also were not in a position to purchase a home, being newly married, with my wife having to find work as I was transferred through my company. He expressed an interest and a desire to help us with our transition from one province to another, we immediately were impressed with his consideration and attentiveness to our specific needs. As I mentioned, we were not, at that time, ready to commit financially in purchasing a home and he was extremely patient and understanding of our situation. During the next several months we remained in contact via email and phone conversations, while he informed us on areas and municipalities which we should take our time and drive through to educate ourselves. This was extremely valuable to us because it took out so much leg work and guessing out of our search, without the pressure of urgency.
When we finally were in a position to purchase a home, Jalaj showed us homes that were suited to our needs and further refined our search criteria as we may have seemed slightly particular. This only strengthened his resolve in making our experience fruitful. Within a few short weeks of serious searching Jalaj helped us find our home. Once, we had the home selected he walked us through, step by step, the financial and legal procedures required in making the home ours, being our first home, his help and advice was invaluable.
Jalaj far exceeded our expectations of what a Realtor should do, his drive and passion in his profession was evident from our first meeting. He has become our friend and we are grateful he has made our experience so pleasurable. He is truly an asset to the profession and to RE/MAX.

I am writing on behalf of my husband Vincent and I. We were recently introduced to Jalaj Arora by a friend as we were looking for a home in the Milton area. Our experience working with him was amazing; he was professional, very pleasant, thorough, well informed and consistent. He made us feel comfortable working with him and we appreciated all his assistance.
We will definitely recommend our friends to him.

I recently purchased a home in Milton with the help of Jalaj. I had a tight schedule in which to find the perfect home and within a week, Jalaj came through for me! He is extremely pleasant and helpful and always professional. He quickly assessed my needs and only showed me homes that would be appropriate for my needs./
I would recommend Jalaj to anyone looking for a home.
My husband, Wanderley, and I had the great pleasure of having Jalaj help us look for our new home. We had met Jalaj at an open house in January and his professionalism was impressive. We decided, then, that Jalaj would be the agent we would like to work with, proving to be a fantastic decision. Jalaj always offered the best advice and information that were crucial to making the best decision for our family. There were things we had not considered, and plenty of things we were not aware of, and he was always helpful. Jalaj knew the features we thought would be ideal and found us the perfect home. It was so great to know that he was determined to find a house that would ultimately become our home.
Having worked with agents in the past, Jalaj possesses a characteristic that many do not have….benevolence, allowing us to feel at ease with the investment we were looking to make. Working with Jalaj took the fear out of house hunting. Although Jalaj helped us find the perfect home, I will never forget one gesture he did that proved to us he is great man. There was a family emergency and we had to call Jalaj to reschedule a meeting. Jalaj immediately showed concern and let us know he was there. Within a couple days, a beautiful card arrived from Jalaj. Albeit this has nothing to do with real estate, it has everything to do with building a relationship with clients and showing that he is considerate. We now consider Jalaj to be a great friend and would gladly refer family and friends. Overall, our experience with your office was positive. Thank you for your time.
