"For a long time we have wanted a place in the mountains but could not make it work until we meet Jon. Jon made us very comfortable and went way beyond the call of duty to make our dream come true. He is the best at what he does and most of all he is a good man who is a great example of what honesty and integrity is all about. If you want a place in the mountains please call Jon it will be one of the best decisions you have ever made."
"Jon was awesome. Listed our house with great marketing and we had it under contract in 10 days. The selling process was a breeze, as Jon took care of all of the details. All we had to do was move out and sign the paperwork. During that process, he also showed us any homes we were interested in buying, as well as providing additional information on homes he thought we might like. We eventually settled on home and he got the contract set up for us and negotiated every request we had. Made the process of moving my family of 6 as painless as possible and helped find our next home to grow into. He goes above and beyond, and I recommend him to anyone that mentions buying or selling R/E."
"Jon is an excellent Real Estate Agent and extremely responsive. I was purchasing a manufactured home that in and of itself has road blocks not to mention the seller was a challenge. Jon returned emails at 8pm or 9am it did not matter. I always felt that he was on top the situation and tried to expedite the resolution of all issues. He went the extra mile and loaded his truck with junk from the prior owner and hauled it to the dump for me. Jon was always willing to help. Thank you Jon!"
"I can't imagine having a better realtor than Jon. Our closing was complicated by the fact that we never saw the seller's agent at any point in the process (I assume she came by later to pick up her commission). Jon was in the unenviable position of doing the leg work for both buyer and seller and he did both with no hesitation. He was very responsive to our various (and multiple) requests, and was uniquely knowledgable about the local market."
"Jon was great to work with! I recommend Jon to anyone buying or selling a house. He works very hard at his job and you can tell he loves what he does."
"I cannot imagine that there is a better realtor to have on your side than Jon Spiva. From the initial conversations of what our family was looking for to the final signatures at the closing table, there is no doubt in my mind that Jon went above and beyond in every step of the process. It's great to know there is a go to agent in Blairsville that we can send our friends to for their real estate needs."
"Jon was a pleasure to work with! He is very knowledgeable of the Blairsville area and was able to answer any questions my husband and I had about the property we purchased. Jon was always very responsive to calls and emails. The transaction went smoothly from contract to closing. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling a home or property!"
"I have utilized Jon's services on two occasions. Once as the seller's realtor (2013). The other as my realtor to sell that same home (2016). Jon has the highest integrity, a great work ethic, always available and easy to talk with. He knows his job and the area very well."
"Great experience. Jon was easy to work with, very personable, and quick to respond. We were living in another state so it was helpful to have an attentive agent handling everything for us. Highly Recommend!"
"Jon is a very knowledgable realtor. He took his time with us on two seperate occasions to help us find a home in Blairsville. He helped us with the companies for the different inspections we needed and with the closing. Jon is very personable and I would highly reccommend him."
"Jon Spiva was helpful and patient with us from day 1. Always making his self available to us when needed, answering every question to his knowledge or guiding us in direction to get the answers we needed. I would recommend him to anyone out there. He helped my family make our dreams come true."
"Jon Spiva was a complete pleasure to work with in finding our dream home. His dedication and devotion to helping us was second to none. His warm personality made us feel Like family. I commend him on his vast knowledge and determination."
"I was recommended to ask for Jon from the "locals" in the town I purchased my home. I was looking for a real estate investment/second home so my children could attend Union County Schools. He was not only a thorough professional at providing suggestions based on the budget and the requirements, he is also extremely personable. Throughout my interactions with him I never felt pressured to reach a decision, instead Jon took the time and effort to research and substantiate his recommendations with facts and shared his opinions. His knowledge from working from the mortgage/banking aspect was also helpful. When to bid , how much to bid for, and other aspects were offered and suggested. He answered our many questions and also brought us back to the home many times at my request and without hesitation. He offered and had set up/suggested vendors for inspections, survey, and the final agreement signing. I would recommend Jon Spiva without any second thought to prospective buyers, and from the perspective of the locals I have met since the closing he is a well-liked and highly regarded professional."
"Jon Spiva is a real estate professional who is extremely knowledgable, honest, patient and very trustworthy. It has been a real pleasure to do business with Jon. He always goes above and beyond to ensure his customers receive the highest level of customer service. Unfortunately we have not yet found our dream vacation home but we know eventually Jon will find us that perfect place. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy and or sell property."
"Within 2 weeks of meeting John , he found the home we will raise our children in. I know John had multiple clients but he made it seem like we were his only ones."
"Jon was fantastic to work with, and we will work with him again. Jon brought us more interest to our home than we ever thought possible. The only reason we didn't sell it was the timing of us having twins, and deciding to unlist it for a couple of years. Jon was great about giving us the time we needed to prepare the house for showings as well as always giving us any feedback received. Once our kids get a little older, we will definitely list our home with Jon again."
"I approached Jon in January 2013 about contacting some possible buyers for a Subdivision. He was very anxious about the adventure. Within minutes of contacting some possible companies, his phone started ringing and in 3 days buyers were looking at the property! Jon went above and beyond everything to make sure this deal was completed. I am very happy to say this deal was finalized in June 2013!!! He did an amazing professional job!"
"Jon showed us many houses over an 8 month period. We finally placed an offer on a foreclosure. We lived 250 miles away and relied on Jon to coordinate, negotiate and handle everything. The bank that owned the house was extremely difficult to work with and my lender was almost as bad. Jon had local contacts to perform various repairs and inspections and we were very pleased with that work. Jon handled many problems between my lender and the property owner. Jon went above and beyond what I had expected from an agent and I highly recommend him."
"We Had dealt with several realtors before Jon and were not really happy with them. We were part time visitors in the area so we were always limited on the time we could spend searching for our home. Jon understood this and always made time for us and we know this was sometimes inconvenient for him. He was always courteous, respectful, easy to talk to and knows the area well. We highly recommend Jon Spiva to anyone looking for a realator."
"Jon was great in helping me find a good home at a great value. He gave me all the information needed to make a buying decision and guided me through the entire process. I would recommend Jon and Blairsville Realty for anyone buying or selling property in the area."
"Little did we know that when we signed a contract to buy some land, it would be 15 months before we were able to close on the property, completely due to circumstances out of Jon's and our control. Throughout this time, Jon kept us informed as to what was going on, and was very diligent about getting extensions on the contract signed in a timely manner. (All via email which was very convenient.) He was knowledgeable, patient and quickly responsive to any questions. I could not recommend a realtor any more highly than I do Jon."
"I wouldn't reccommend anyone else to help find you the right home! Jon was extremely helpful, patient, and knowledgable from the start. We probably looked at over 25 houses and He was always honest, patient, never rushed us, wanted to genuinely help us find the perfect home for us. If we ever need a realtor again, he'll be the one we go with!"
"Jon was very helpful and treated us like family in our search for our home. He was always ready to show us any house we asked to look at. During the negotiating process he was very knowledgable with the mortgage side from his previous skills. He was by far the best realtor that we could have had."
"My wife and I called Jon from Oklahoma when we found out we were moving. Gave him an idea of what we wanted, and he sent us a list of houses to weed through. When we got into town, we were making an offer by the end of the week. Jon took care of everything!!! "Highly Recommended" is an understatement."
"Great realtor who really helped us with our first home purchase last fall. Very knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions; readily available and responds quickly to messages. I would recommend without hesitation."
"Working with the public, I'm always talking with locals and newcomers to Blairsville who are looking to buy or sell their home. When they ask me who I reccommend as a real estate agent the first person that comes to my mind is Jon Spiva. Jon has always helped my husband and I when we are wanting to buy and sell. He has found us great properties and even our first home, while always keeping in mind our price points and what we are looking for in a home/property. I recommend Jon Spiva to anyone wanting to buy or sell real estate in the North Georgia Mountains."
"Jon is a "local" to the Union County area and knows the area well. His parents are builders, developers, realtors and Jon has grown up in the real estate business. Jon knows many of the properties well and has a substantial listing base of his own. Jon was consistently helpful and available to show properties. We worked well together to get properties to look at and have a good route to access 10-14 homes in a day and had fun doing it.
"From the moment I shook Jon's hand, I knew he was the right match as my realtor to handle my demanding expectations of my Blairsville future home purchase. I tend to be too thorough in my work and expect folks that work for me to expect many emails and phone calls with questions and comments. Jon did an outstanding job of returning all my calls and many emails in a very short period of time. His attitude was always positive and he always went beyond what I would request since he knew I expected right information. I have and will continue to recommend Jon as an excellent realtor choice and know that when you sign the dotted line of real estate contract, that you have been educated and informed of the purchase. Well done Mr. Spiva......Well done."
"We first met Jon when he was in banking and approved our construction loan to build our home. Several years later we had to sell our home in order to take care of a family member. We discovered that Jon was now in Real Estate, and sought him out. Jon is very knowledgeable in both real estate and the GA Mountain area. He listed our home and we had a contract on it the same day! Jon has been very professional and has been responsive to all of our questions and concerns. He prides himself on staying on top of all aspects of the home sale. Jon is the true definition of a real estate professional, but beyond that, he is truly a very nice guy! If we every have the opportunity to move back to the area, he will be our first call."
"If you are looking to move to the Blairsville Ga area, than Jon is the realtor for all your needs. During our moving here we encountered a lot of problems such as our buyer leaving us high and dry by backing out of the deal on our house in Fla. Jon persevered and stood by us throughout the process. Most other realtors would have abandoned ship. He is a genuine sincere person and totally trustworthy. I found his honesty in todays world very refreshing. His realtor skill and knowledge were that of a much more seasoned realtor."
"Jon Spiva is a knowledgable realtor that really listens to his client. During the process of purchasing a home he made sure we understood what was going on and were comfortable with the decisions being made. He went above and beyond to help us in any way he could, and his local knowledge has been a blessing to us. Jon made us feel like we were his only client and always responding quickly to our questions. We were extremely satisfied with our experience with Jon."
"Jon Spiva is a great realtor! He is very informative and is go getter!! He worked with my husband and I for a few months and found exactly the home we were looking for!! We would definitely recommend him to anyone!"
"We had a GREAT experience with Jon Spiva as our agent. He was on top of everything!He always was there to answer any questions and if he missed our call, he called us back VERY quickly.He gave us great advise and helped us save TONS of money. He helped us find and buy our DREAM house :) I would recommend him to anybody!"
"Jon helped us buy a house near Blairsville, Georgia. His knowledge of the area is outstanding. His contacts with local professionals made the entire process easy including inspections, appraisal, survey, financing, and insurance. I highly recommend Jon Spiva."
"There is no way possible for us to ever put into words how happy, thankful, satisfied and completely impressed we are with Jon Spiva. Jon took us to see every listing we were even remotely interested in without hesitation. With our house sold and closed, we were in a tight spot to find another home. Our first deal fell through due to legal issues on the part of the seller. Jon did everything humanly possible to help us get into the right house for our family. His professionalism, patience, work ethic, integrity, and negotiating skills are second to none in this area. He took the time to interact with our children (not every agent cares about your family), he answered every question we had completely, he always touched base with us to let us know how things were going, and he did not let us down in any area. We would trust him with the future sale of our home, with buying another home, or for any general advice about real estate. He is very well versed in the area geographically;he is very good at interacting with lawyers, mortgage specialists, inspectors etc. If we could give a thousand stars, we would. Jon Spiva will not only satisfy all of your real estate needs, he will become a friend in the process. This is the kind of man you want to work with. Guaranteed."
"Jon is exceptional! Jon worked with us for over a year searching for the perfect property for our family. He was patient, professional and knowledgeable throughout the process. After selecting our dream home, he guided us through our purchase and helped overcome numerous obstacles with a challenging seller. If you need a realtor in North Georgia, look no further, Jon Spiva is the only choice!!"
"Jon has truly been the dream realtor since we began searching for our future home a few months prior. We worked with him from another state, and he was able to fulfill all of our wants and needs throughout this process. He is a true professional and he ensured that all of our questions and concerns were answered, and he helped us find our dream home here in Georgia. He went above and beyond what we had expected, going as far as helping us establish our utilities in our new home after closing. In a competitive market of realtors, Jon Spiva is a true professional and we will recommend him to everyone. Although he began as just our realtor, he surely ended as our friend."
"Jon was extremely knowledgeable of the Blue Ridge and Blairsville areas. He went above and beyond in helping us find a wonderful mountain cabin. I would recommend using him to anyone."
"Conscientious and very observant to the specifics needed to help his customers. Responsive, energetic and willing to devote the time and effort to make a positive difference. A true professional!"
"Jon sold us our dream home. He is very knowledgeable about the North Georgia area. He could answer every question we asked of him. He was very patient with us, showed over 30 homes in 3 days. We could not imagine using another realtor while we are in the North Georgia area. Jon Spiva is a true professional."
