Jay Richards, Owner/Broker

I am a life-long resident of the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia, and would not want to live anywhere else. I was born and raised in the Bridgewater area and I have enjoyed growing up here for so many reasons. I love the scenery as much as I love the relationships I have developed over the years. I value staying in touch with those I’ve developed connections with and am always open to making more. I am, by my very nature, a problem solver. I love to help people realize their dreams.

After attending and graduating from local area schools, I acquired my Business Administration Diploma at NSCC Lunenburg Campus. I continued on to gain my REALTOR® Sales Person License, and then my Broker’s License.  I have completed numerous industry related courses and certificate programs. I consider myself a life-long learner and am humble enough to know I will always have something new to master.

I cut my teeth in the housing and development industry. My parents, Sandra Richards and Bob Richards, developed two of the premier land lease communities in Atlantic Canada, Eisenhauer Place and LaHave Heights, in addition to many other housing development projects. The family owned business was always the baby in the family, and got most of the thought and attention. As a young man, I enjoyed everything about it.

I have honed this passion for sales and housing since my first days in the industry; now for over a decade. When I work with my clients, I pride myself on my professionalism, my experience, knowledge and the enjoyment of helping others.  I consider it my personal mandate to insure satisfaction when I assist my clients in making a housing change, because I realize how important this process is to the quality of their lives.

Now, as owner and broker of Holm Realty, I’m able to offer flexibility in commissions and services offered.  As Manager of The Home Centre, your Kent Homes Dream Builder for the South Shore of Nova Scotia, I am also able to provide you with custom built, new manufactured home construction.

I understand and appreciate that when clients are sitting in front of me, they trust me to assist them in making informed decisions about the most important purchase they can make. I take that trust very seriously, and know it has to be earned by everything I do.

I have designed my website with your interests in mind. Drop me a line – I would love to hear your thoughts! I am dedicated to selling your home or finding you that dream home you are searching for. You are invited to browse my website and call or e-mail me with any questions you have about buying or selling a home in the area. I am so gratified to hear my clients say – “Buying, selling, any home, anywhere – “BEST WORK WITH JAY”.
