He brings an analytical approach to the art of house buying. Jock never tried to push me into anything, rather he would always show me the pros and cons so I could make an informed choice. He is very knowledgeable about the macro trends of the market, the area and provided statistical information on the future appreciation of every choice that I had to make such as the location, community, landscaping, etc. He always accommodated my work schedule to bring me to showings and even went above & beyond offering opinions on selection of interiors, options, mortgages, etc. As is his natural tendency, everything was always backed up with numbers. Jock is outstanding at what he does and I would be happy to work with him again in future.
At almost that exact moment, I was contacted by Jock through LinkedIn. We worked together for 1 month before I moved back to the USA. This preparation meant that we found the house that was best fit for our family quickly and without much hassle. So, Jock's ability to read the client and anticipate their needs is a strong point. If we started the search only after we arrived, it would have been much tougher. He helped us get into our new life as smooth as possible. Much appreciated! In addition, Jock has an extensive background in technology so for technical professionals moving to the Reno area for Tesla, Panasonic, Google, Apple, Switch, etc. the conversation style and way of thinking will be what you like. I highly recommend you chose Jock to help you get into your new home without hassle.
After years of working with different agents on several real estate deals across the country, I found Jock as the most responsive, responsible and knowledgable agent. I strongly recommend Jock and his consulting service to anyone who is looking for quality and transparency.
Jock stood out to me initially due to his extensive work experience in management roles in the technology industry of Silicon Valley. I knew that he would bring both a high level of professionalism and technical understanding of the ins and outs of the real estate industry – and he fully delivered on both accounts. Jock brought extensive experience in the real estate industry to every phase of my home buying process, and would provide deep analysis and expert insights from the initial search process through negotiations and closing. He consistently went above and beyond what I imagined his responsibilities to be, providing long and detailed analysis of demographics, areas of the city, and homes that I was considering. Despite my odd working hours, Jock was happy to answer questions via text or phone at late hours, and felt it was his responsibility to answer every question I had, no matter how simple or eccentric. When it came time to buy, Jock provided expert insight into every aspect of the purchase and negotiation process – from where to bid based on the market, to how to communicate various concerns regarding required maintenance on the house. Thanks to Jock, I purchased a home I loved in Sparks, and felt fully supported throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Jock to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Sparks or Reno Area.
He provides a detailed analytical breakdown of the real estate market that no one else can match and is very knowledgeable about his real estate markets (especially if a golf course is nearby)!
I am grateful to him for his patience and attentiveness. I know I could be a bit aggressive and demanding, but he took it in stride.
I trust him as he demonstrated his honesty time and time again. Jock has great communication skills. He takes the time to listen and understand. Then, he takes the time to analyze and prepare a detailed answer. He is very competent yet, he would take the time to explain things in simple terms to me. I would definitely recommend Jock Ochiltree.
He goes that extra mile and leaves no stone unturned. Exceptional research and planning eases significantly the House Hunting process. Always on time and willing to devote whatever time and resources necessary to get the job done. I recommend him highly. Simply the best.
He has gone the extra mile time and again to move this process along and to help and advise us in a related matter.
