      Highly recommending whenever I can!

      Our home buying experience was nothing short of amazing! Jeff Geddes’ years of expertise lend to his ability to zero in on exactly what one is seeking making the process so smooth. After seeing only 4-5 homes, Jeff was standing in the driveway of our now new home when we arrived for our first look. He said, “I think this is it!” He then guided us, worked directly with our mortgage lender, and made our purchase happen in a very difficult market for buyers. A dream come true for us! He truly enjoys the moment finding the match between a home and its new owner. We highly recommend Jeff whenever we can.

      Found me my dream condo!

      I found myself relocating unexpectedly from Torrington CT to New Haven CT. Jeff was relentless with tracking down listings that checked all of my boxes. He found me my dream condo, a vintage historical unit in the heart of Westville, a vibrant New Haven neighborhood! I closed within weeks and the process was seamless. Jeff’s expertise got me the best deal possible! When I’m ready to sell again, there is no other agent I will work with!

      Highly recommend Mr. Geddes for any of your realty needs.

      Mr. Geddes was my realtor when I was looking for a new home after my divorce. He knew I needed to find something quick but affordable for me and my son. He was quick to find as many options as he could and was wonderful and honest when he took me around to see the properties. He helped me through every step of the process and even helped pony me in a great direction for my mortgage. I would highly recommend Mr. Geddes for any of your realty needs. He would be the first person I would contact if I should need to sell or buy!

      Attentive and thorough

      Jeff Geddes was the strongest possible advocate for the sale of my house. He was attentive and thorough in addressing my wishes and concerns regarding the listing and showings!! He knows how to go above and beyond in making sure everything is done appropriately, and most of all, he is a man of integrity, whom you can trust.

      Above and beyond

      Jeff goes above and beyond; I represented many clients in real estate transactions as an attorney and when it was time to sell our home in Torrington, the obvious choice to be our real estate agent was Jeff Geddes! We were extremely happy with Jeff, both as a professional and as a person.
