N: Amy Young and I became fast friends a few years back during one of her regular Savannah visits when she happened to have an extra ticket to a Savannah Music Festival show. It didn’t take long for her to tell me about her long time love for Savannah and her plans for SixTwelve back in Oklahoma City, and incorporating a community exchange with Savannah as part of her dream for that organization. It took one or two more trips before we began looking at homes, and we’d only looked at a handful when we came to the cottage on Charlton Lane. Amy knew immediately this was the one and before long Amy was an official, if only part time, Savannah resident. I’m glad to have gained a great friend, and honored to have played a small part in making the artist exchange a reality.
What made you choose Judge Realty?
Y: I chose Judge Realty because of their reputation, the incredible attention that they give to each home buyer and because of the support they provide to the arts community in Savannah. This was very important to me because the little house I purchased will be used as a residency for artists, musicians, writers, chefs, farmers, and anyone else that want to send to this beautiful city. The community education center my partner and I are starting in Oklahoma City, SixTwelve, will reciprocally host creative people from Savannah. We want to start a group of culture and community exchanges each year, so as to give people a chance to learn, to grow and to share knowledge.
Three words to describe Jason Nielubowicz as an agent…
Y: Attentive, Kind, Professional
From contract to close, how did we do?
Y: I would give Judge Realty five out of five stars! I needed help between making an offer and closing because I live in Oklahoma part-time and couldn’t be in Savannah for the inspections, appraisals, etc. Jason was always there and would respond promptly to any questions or concerns that I had. I could not have been more lucky to have found Judge Realty to help me through the process.
Advice for others selling / buying properties?
Y: Everyone I meet at Judge Realty is top notch! You can’t go wrong with choosing someone from this company to help you buy or sell. Jason was wonderful to work with because he treated me like a friend and watched out for everything I needed. In addition, Lori Judge has personally helped me to meet people throughout Savannah that could enrich the process of setting up the residency exchange. How did I get so lucky?!?
What was your overall experience working with Judge Realty?
Y: My experience working with Judge Realty was so good that I will definitely choose them the next time I purchase property in Savannah. I couldn’t be happier, plus I feel like I gained a great group of friends. I’m so grateful!
