Biography

Operating Philosophy

There’s equity in every relationship and in every real estate transaction. I am passionate about providing a truly positive, customer friendly experience whether you are a buyer or seller. I am an excellent communicator and even if I do not have the answers, you will always hear from me in a timely fashion and get a promised call. As a detailed oriented professional, I will keep you informed and apprised of each situational change; you’ll always know how the buying or selling process is evolving. It’s been a lifelong mark of my service to treat every relationship with respect, integrity and energy. I will do for you, what I would expect for myself in any equitable relationship.

Ingenuity & Skype for the Win!  It is heartwarming to help a family find their "forever" home and sometimes you've got to think outside the box to make it happen! Sheila, Al & children, a military family living down south, were looking to purchase their first home here in New Hampshire. With a little ingenuity using Skype and help from family members, Sheila and Al "visited" numerous properties and were able to complete their home search & purchase transaction remotely! Don't you love technology? I am honored to have their trust and it was my pleasure to guide them through the home buying process.

Understanding is Key!

Recently, my wife and I downsized from our Manchester Victorian to a newer much smaller Colonial on the eastern fringes of the city near Lake Massabesic. We truly understand the emotional and financial processes of downsizing. This recent experience allows me to help you understand the many tradeoffs and advantages that come with this weaning down process.

With a college kid in the house, we fondly understand the needs of twenty somethings as renters or potential first-time homebuyers. A good part of my business now is introducing first or second time home buying Millennials to downsizing Boomers. Whatever your situation, when we get a chance to meet, you’ll find I have my pulse on the greater Manchester area and life’s changes. As a full-time agent, practicing residential Real Estate in southern NH & northern MA, I’ll take the time to thoroughly work with you and build a strategy that will garner the home you wish at a fair price. When you have a choice, work with a professional.

Let Me Be Your Trusted Source

My business practice is characterized by a wide range of real estate services. Above all else, my realtor services are about consistent day-to-day effort on my client’s behalf, transparency in all dealings and building a trusted relationship with all clients. My client’s interests are my paramount focus, backed up by hard work, energy and shared insight.

Working with a client to fully understand their buying or selling needs and aspirations is key. My client’s success is paramount! My business is based on referrals and I spend 75% of my time serving current customers, not prospecting all day. Providing guidance and direction through the complexities associated with modern Real Estate searches and transactions are exactly where I can be of the most service to my clients.  Since this real estate marketplace is complicated, competitive and intense, it needs my full-time attention on your behalf.  You can count on my real estate experience, insight and service to turn the purchase of a house into home.

As a seasoned online search marketer, we’ll capably use the latest research and analytic tools that are available through my affiliation with Berkshire Hathaway HomeService (BHHS), Verani Realty Company. Furthermore, my clients can and do lean on me to make the process as simple and straightforward as is humanly possible. Together, we’ll leverage the 100+ years of Berkshire Hathaway corporate prowess and the 50+ years of local Verani Realty experience in the New Hampshire real estate market.

Testimonials

Jeff did a good job on buy and sell side.

- Kevin Paradis

If you are looking to buy a home Jeff Rapson is your guy! I am a first-time, Veteran, homebuyer and the process seemed extremely daunting, but Jeff was there every single step of the way. He made himself available at all times, including late nights and weekends, for all of my questions, and I had many. He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to VA home loans, NH policies and procedures, as well as the timelines associated with the process. He knew exactly what I was looking for in a home, and since I was out of state, he would go to the properties for me and FaceTime me. I always felt that I was in a good hands. He always kept in constant contact with me and it made me feel very at ease. I would recommend Jeff to any friend or family member.

I was looking for a house in Concord for my children and I and I was under a very tight budget and time schedule. I had found one near me and I needed to find a realtor to get the process started. Jeffs name was given to me by a friend. I called him and I was impressed that he called back within an hour. Within two hours of the first phone call, I was on my way to concord to see my first house. I was impressed by Jeffs knowledge about the real estate industry, his familiarity with the concord area, his initiative, and his patience. I looked at a number of houses with Jeff. After each viewing, Jeff would ask me what I liked, what I didn't like, and what I would change about the house. As a result, each subsequent house that I looked at was closer and closer to what I had envisioned. When I finally found the house I wanted, Jeff was extremely patient with me, and helpful in helping me maintain a positive perspective while navigating the finances and the negotiations. Once I closed on the house, Jeff maintained contact to make sure I was all set and to offer help in finding furniture. I am extremely pleased with the service, help, and advice that Jeff provided and I would highly recommend him to my family and friends. He is exceedingly knowledgeable, hardworking, and easy to work with.

We sold my home today!! And if I had to do it all again, I would not change a single thing. I say we; my team was just my realtor Jeff Rapson and myself. I entered the selling process alone, and as soon as Jeff represented my home my stress and worries immediately dissipated. He sold my house at asking price, and my buyer and I could not be happier. I felt completely in control, while being guided by a pro through every tedious step. (And there were way more steps than expected). If you are lucky enough to have Jeff involved, representing either buyer or seller, rest assured nothing will be overlooked. Thank you Jeff! I look forward to you representing me as a buyer, when Im ready for my next home!

With last Friday's closing now behind us a quick note of thanks for the above and beyond effort you and May put in to get my house marketed and sold. With me in NC it was critical that you guys quarterbacked the logistics from power washing to landscaping to painting to a million other details. Your advice on pricing proved spot on. You even cut the lawn before the open house when we landed our buyer. Much appreciated and glad we got it into the end zone.

I started working with Jeff to buy my first home for my fiancE© and myself. We had a few false starts on a few properties. Until finally we found our home. Then it was a process of getting all the paperwork and inspections. With a few setbacks and a little stress. Jeff kept us on point and heading towards the goal. It took a few months. But, with Jeffs dedication and professionalism. We closed on August 31st. None of this would have happened without Jeff.

As first time home buyers the current state of the housing market can make it very intimidating and nerve wracking to want to jump right in. To us it was important to establish a good relationship with our Realtor to make sure they understood our wants, concerns, and time line. After our first meeting with Jeff and Justin we knew they would be on our side in making sure we find the house that would fit us. As overwhelming buying a house can be this team provided us with much information as possible as to what to expect during the buying process. They also made house searching easy with email updates, websites, and their own app that can be easily managed by your cell phone. Jeff or Justin were always available to answer any questions or concerns that we may have had. Our overall experience with Jeff and Justin was excellent. They treated us like we were their only client and made sure we were comfortable from start to finish. We may have had gone through some highs and lows throughout our buying experience however we wouldnt have been able to do without Jeff and Justin.

Jeff, Thank you for all your hard work as the broker for Irvs office building. Your enthusiasm for the property, attention to detail and knowledge of the community were wonderful. I truly feel that you left no stone unturned in marketing the property and that was largely responsible for the success in moving the building in what is still a buyers market. Dealing with an estate is difficult enough, your help was invaluable. Thank you again.
