What the Locals Love About Long Beach
“What a refreshing experience it was to work with JP. Right from her first email contact with me, JP demonstrated level of professionalism and enthusiasm I haven’t encountered in a long time. It was such a pleasure to work with someone who not only walks the talk, but does so with such energy and affability. Just one example: The home I purchased was listed on a Saturday. On Monday there were 5 offers. My offer was taken because JP was the only realtor to present the offer to the owners in person. This is not hyperbole; this is exactly what the prior owners told me at closing. If you are looking for someone who is committed to excellence and will follow through (remarkably quickly) on every issue/concern (big or small), you need not look any further than JP.”
-Dan D., Carlisle
“JP was great to work with as a first time home buyer. While it took me a while to find the right match, JP helped show me a great amount of different properties in the Central PA area and didn’t get frustrated or push me along during the process. Now that I am all settled in my new house, I am very grateful for JP helping me find my new house.”
-Joel W., New Cumberland
“JP Shaw helped us to sell our home and buy a new one. She did a fantastic job guiding us through each step in the process. She was readily available to address any of our concerns. Her list of home maintenance providers proved to be very helpful. She did an awesome job staging and marketing the house. We highly recommend her to anyone searching for a real estate professional.”
-Gary and Cora B., Camp Hill
“While living in Florida, I needed good realtor. I asked a friend who is fellow realtor to help me find one in the Enola area. I am so thankful for him contacting JP. She was very professional, understanding and wonderful to work with her. If you need to sell or buy a home, I highly recommend you call JP.”
“JP makes every other bumbling real estate agent in South Central Pennsylvania look like they’ve failed their local community college’s Real Estate 101 class. She was knowledgeable, timely, professional, and courteous. She understands the entire process, the market, the different parties involved, and how to deliver results under pressure. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.”
-Keaton M., Mechanicsburg
“Five years ago, JP helped my husband and me buy our dream home and then, when our family grew and our “dream” changed, she helped us sell the same house at a $25,000 profit! She is a truly gifted negotiator who knows how to make sure both the home’s seller and the buyer feel they have a win-win deal. She is also an optimistic realist who tells it like it is, but she offers terrific advice on how to improve a home and set expectations accordingly. And I would be remiss if I didn’t add that she’s a hilarious gal about town, who knows a lot about the neighborhoods in Camp Hill and Mechanicsburg, in particular, and she is always willing to dish.”
-Mattie R., Camp Hill
“Wow, where to start? I discovered JP by doing some research and reading reviews and boy, we were not disappointed. She helped us find and purchase our very first home and did the impossible: it was a stress-free experience! Not only did she have a fun and energetic presence, but she also worked diligently (even through her vacation!). She was very personal with us and we were able to text her any time of day and she maintained her professionalism and got the hard work done. If anyone is a first-time home buyer like us, or just looking for a new place to stay around Central PA, I can’t recommend JP enough. As soon as you reach out to her, all your hard work is done because JP will take care of you until you’re moving things into your new home. Thank you, JP for everything!”
-Thomas Y., Mechanicsburg
“In addition to her knowledge and experience, JP provides exceptional customer service. She was truly a partner and advisor to us as we navigated the ups and downs of the home buying and selling process.”
-Duane and Megan M., Camp Hill
“JP was great. Kept me informed throughout the entire process–I trusted her knowledge. She was quick to respond to every email text and call. Each time I asked to see a house…she got me in that day. She even came out to my workplace on a Sunday to meet with me about my offer on a house. Very pleased with my new home and I got a very fair deal.”
– Marcus B., Enola
“My husband and I were definitely stressing over getting our condo sold. It needed to happen fast. Within just a few weeks, we signed JP on as our agent, got our home up on the market, had multiple showings, and received an offer!”
-Billy and Dana M., Mechanicsburg
“JP took the time to get to know me on a personal level, which really gave her a better understanding of what i was looking for in a new home. Very knowledgeable when looking at homes and finding resources if the new house needed any particular work done.”
-Chris W., Harrisburg
“Not being from the area and not knowing anyone either, having to obtain services for anything is hair raising. After seeing the reviews about JP, they are spot on! She helped us find the “unicorn” of houses. Once negotiations started, again JP delivered and moved the process along quickly. JP’s knowledge of other services in the industry is an invaluable asset for our situation. At the end of the day I am happy with decision to pick JP to find our house!! Thank you JP!”
-Todd H., Boiling Springs
“JP was not only polite and professional during our home selling and buying process, but she also was on call 24/7 aiding us during a major crisis. She was always there for us, and we truly believe she had our family’s best interests at heart. Without her, we would’ve been like sheep that strayed from the flock. We owe her almost everything for saving our home and preserving the integrity of sale with our buyer. JP is the closest thing to a saint/angel the world has seen.”
-Justin and Jenn A., Mechanicsburg
“JP is amazing, we where really nervous being it was our first time buying a home. She walked us through every detail, she would explain things in different ways to make sure we understood what was going on. If we asked her advise she would help the best she could. JP is very knowledgeable and informative, if you don’t understand something ask and she will educate you. That was really helpful when it came to deciding on homes. She was very responsive and answered emails even at 11pm! I will be going through UP as long as she’s a realtor. Thank you so much JP we love our home!”
-Jon and Sami, Mechanicsburg
“I was buying a condominium for my Mother in Mechanicsburg which was a challenge for me as I am 1,500 miles away. JP was extremely helpful in identifying listings that were a good fit based on my requirements and took it upon herself to ‘preview’ a number of units for me that I was interested in. She took many pictures and gave me her honest opinion on each which I found very valuable and helpful in making my final choice. When it came time to do the house-hunt in person she was extremely efficient in scheduling back to back showings at over a dozen properties in one afternoon which is no easy task to coordinate. We identified a home and had our offer accepted in less than 24 hours thanks to her shrewd negotiations. I chose to use JP Shaw because of her high rating and praise on YELP and I am not at all disappointed. I gave her a 5 star review myself which is well deserved. She made the process a breeze and I am very pleased with the new home which I purchased. Thank you JP.”
-Wayne C., Houston, TX
“JP was awesome! She was always accessible, upbeat, quick to respond and I felt I was in very good hands! I drug her around to look at sooo many houses and she never questioned. She was never late meeting me (usually was early) and at times would scope out the area letting me know if it was even worth coming out, which actually only happened once. I had never bought house before and she walked me through the process with confidence and knowledge. I knew I was in good hands! Thank you for helping me find a lovely house JP :)”
“I worked with a different agent briefly. She did not seem to comprehend that I was on a strict time line or that I have a really good memory and wouldn’t be overwhelmed by seeing too many places in a day. She didn’t seem to have the time to adequately help me. A relative referred me to JP who immediately understood my situation and arranged to do a tour the next day! I cannot tell you enough how wonderful JP was throughout the whole process. She truly made it as pain-free as possible. In total, she showed us 70 houses and helped us place four different offers! In the end, she actually got information from the sellers’ agent that helped us negotiate the best price possible. By the time of closing, I felt like JP was an old friend. She was available to me at all hours, setting up house tours on a moment’s notice and quickly answering all my questions. I would recommend JP to my friends, family, or a stranger on the streets – whoever is need of realty services would be well served by JP. I cannot say enough good stuff about her! I only hope she is still in the business by the time I want to move again!”
-Nicole S., Harrisburg
JP was always prompt with her follow up and communication, which is one of the most important facets when purchasing a house. She is truly an experienced professional agent and made our home buying experience easy. She always made us feel like we were her most important client. I would recommend JP to my friends and family for all of those reasons plus she has great shoes.
-Eric and Jodi S., Camp Hill
“JP was amazing and as first time home buyers me and my wife really lucked out with her. We will be using her for future purchases and only her.”
-Patrick R., Mechanicsburg
“JP Shaw was very organized, responsive, knowledgeable, careful in price selection, good listener and apprehensive in selecting properties to show.”
-Lesya R., Hershey
“JP was diligent, persistent and thorough in guiding us through the buy side process. She provided excellent advice to us regarding a variety of transaction issues. She was always a consummate professional in dealing with us, the sell side broker and sellers. She was responsive and made herself available to accommodate our schedule and concerns through the process to closing.”
-Jim and Diane B., Harrisburg
“My husband I had been dealing with a different realty agency before we found JP. We were not satisfied with the way things were going and we actually missed out on seeing a couple of properties due to the fact that our agent wouldn’t get back to us until several days later. I had told my husband, I wish I could find someone who returned emails/calls more often than once a week, and someone who was attentive to our needs/wants when purchasing a home. I saw an ad that JP Shaw had posted on Facebook that someone else had commented on and I contacted her. She was more than willing to meet with us and was open to our schedules. She was more than helpful when it came to the knowledge she had and we absolutely LOVED that she went above and beyond her duties. She helped my anxiety with explaining every step along the way and she was there immediately when we had concerns! I was extremely impressed and super happy we decided to call her!! We now own our home and feel pride of ownership because we didn’t settle!! I most definitely will recommend her any time I can find the opportunity! JP Shaw is amazing!”
-Kasi & Luis M., Enola
“The purchase of our home could not have gone smoother. Hearing stories from friends about how excruciating the home buying process can be made us quite nervous, but our experience was nothing but positive. Both my fiance and I were first time buyers and didn’t know very much about the process. JP took the time to walk us through the details and promptly address all of our questions and concerns. Her negotiating skills helped us to purchase our dream home within our budget. We are extremely happy and excited to start our lives in our new home. Not only was JP very professional throughout the home buying process, but she possesses a great personality that made working with her so much easier. We felt very comfortable in approaching her with all of our questions and concerns. She understood that the process can be stressful, and was always available to ease our anxiety and make us feel better about purchasing our first home. She even stopped by at our new home after closing to see how we were doing. JP performed above and beyond our expectations of a realtor.
-Kristen L. and Randy W., Harrisburg
“I had two other agents before JP, neither of which were honest or available, we actually lost out on a few houses because of that. As soon as I started working with JP we actually got somewhere in the process. I was probably pretty difficult about certain things and she was wonderful about everything. She was very helpful through the whole process, and was great at keeping me calm (relatively) throughout the experience, which is a huge accomplishment because I freak out about everything!! She was absolutely wonderful and I would certainly work with her again!”
-Crystal H., Enola
“JP Shaw was an irreplaceable asset in the purchase of my new home. She was patient, kind and knowledgeable in every one of our interactions. We all know that purchasing a home can be a downright harrowing experience, but even at its most stressful, JP made herself available to provide context and support and she was always able to talk me off of the ledge. Every interaction with JP was a positive one, and ultimately, we’d made a purchase we are proud of with a realtor to whom I would send any one of my friends or family members in need of a property.”
-Tony C., Camp Hill
“JP was truly amazing. I felt like she was always looking out for MY best interest. This is my first home and it has been a really wonderful experience for me. I will absolutely look forward to working with JP again in the future.”
-Ryan C., Harrisburg
“JP is a great real estate agent! Being a first time home buyer, I was a little overwhelmed with the whole process, but she was there every step of the way making sure that I was part of the process and ensuring that I fully understood everything. I’m now getting settled in my new home and I couldn’t be happier. I think she actually knew what I was looking for more than I did at times. I look forward to staying here for a while, but I will definitely call JP when/if I decide to sell in the future. Highly recommend!”
-Chip F., Harrisburg
“My wife & I, two daughters, and my father-in-law, gave JP a herculean task of finding THE perfect house, with in-law quarters, that we could close on, AND move into, in just a 2-3 week time frame. She emailed some potential homes within minutes of our asking her to work with us. Within a few days, AND quite a few house visits, she told us of THE PERFECT HOUSE that she found through her own networking. We closed without much drama at all, due to her footwork. We then hit a major roadblock with movers, and JP again shined brightly, providing some fantastic movers that were ‘simply the best’! We now are happily in our new home, with only cardboard boxes to remind us of this huge , but professionally handled process. Thanks, thanks, thanks!”
– Dave & Jeannie H. & Richard G., New Cumberland
“JP was very professional and upbeat! Would recommend her 100%.”
-Tanja T., Mechanicsburg
“As first-time home buyers, my wife and I were understandably nervous about the whole process. JP Shaw did a fantastic job of walking us thorught the steps of looking for and purchasing a property. Any time a problem or question aros, Mrs. Shaw got back to us immediately and resolved it. We were very satisfied with Mrs. Shaw’s negotiating skills and felt that she tried her hardest to get us the best deal possible on our house. We have already recommended Mrs. Shaw to a friend and have no hesitation about doing so again in the future.”
– Daniel & Jutta T., Camp Hill
“My husband and I were struck by JP’s knowledge of the Camp Hill and West Shore real estate communities. We were also impressed with JP’s time and attention to making sure the house we liked was a good fit for us. After the home inspection was done, she guided us through all the things we could fairly ask to have fixed, so our new home was as comfortable and cost-worthy as possible. She has been a great advocate for us, and we are sure she would be a very good resource for many others looking for a new home.”
– Mattie & Jason R., Camp Hill
“JP helped me purchase a house in my area of interest. She was highly motivated, enthusiastic, and committed to helping me find the house that would match my needs. She was also responsive to me when I contacted her at odd hours and JP was on-time or early to show a house to me. You will not be disappointed with her. I give her a “highly recommended” rating. I have bought and sold many houses in the past and she has been memorable in this transaction. I hope to work with her in the future.”
– Scott P. (proud new homeowner), Dover
