My Client Testimonials

    Christina M. We would highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking for a realtor. We were in a total time crunch and needed to find a place to rent and Jeff worked tirelessly and got our situation handled with time to spare. He communicated with us constantly and kept us informed at all times. He really made us feel like our situation was as important to him as it was to us. We will definitely be working with him for our next home purchase as well as ANY real estate needs in the future!
    Misty P. It was great working with Jeff during our home purchase process. He always responds to questions and requests immediately and he is honest - something I find to be lacking with most of today's realtors. I highly recommend him!
    Angela N. Jeff was an amazing help to us definitely feel like he like we were his main priority. he was a blessing to work with.
    Quinton G. Jeff Bauman well understands our local real estate market and is dedicated to each and every client.
    Brian H. Jeff was fantastic to work with. After a horrible experience with another broker from another agency, we had very specific requirements about marketing, and Jeff delivered on everything. I have recommended him to our neighbors and friends and would definitely call on him in the future if we needed a realtor
    William D. Jeff is a very unique individual that is passionate and caring and has a great team he has for the whole process. I was able to obtain my lawyer, lending from his recommendation and he actually gave me choices which shows me he is confident. I enjoyed our experience and he was able to get me home in less than a month total process which was an amazing job by the whole team. Thank you, Jeff

    Rickey B. Jeff Bauman is awesome found and got is into a Beautiful Home...Always answers his calls and does what he says he's gonna do.. Very easy to work with explains and answers questions in detail...FIVE STARS...Thank you
    Jane H. Jeff Bauman from Star Home is a really great realtor to use! I think he is not only very knowledgeable but has a real people personality too. I am an older lady and not as up-to-date on how things are done, nor even how some things work in the newer homes. Jeff was great at showing me how things operate and even how to control and use some appliances etc. He is a great communicator and does not rush you to see things and lets you take your time and ask questions even! He is easygoing and fun to communicate with. I have already recommended him to some older friends of mine who will be looking to retire and sell their current home and move closer to their daughter several towns away. Jeff even made an extra trip back to the place I was thinking of buying to get pictures of the installed sprinkler systems as the insurance company wanted to know if they were also in the walk-in closets! He did all this to ease my anxiety without me asking him, which also satisfied my insurance company! I can't speak higher of Jeff Bauman, and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a realtor who will give you 145%! You will be glad you did!!!
