I worked with both Amy and Jason Brown over the last 6 months to purchase a home. They were extraordinary. I received almost daily communication from them with possible homes, information about neighborhoods, ect. I couldn?t be happier with my experience with Jason and Amy! They were wonderful!

"5 Stars! Excellent real estate agents and family duo! I am a Navy officer moving to Newport from across country and needed eyes on properties when I couldn't be there myself. Jason and Amy helped me search, provided videos, photos, and Amy located the exact house I was looking for! I flew up to see it the next day and they helped me work through the whole offer and negotiating process in a way I was very comfortable with. They are exceptionally patient, very communicative, and dealt with all my crazy questions and concerns during the entire purchase process. I always had full trust with both of them. I couldn't have asked for a better team and look forward to getting know them better when I'm local! Go with Kavanaugh, you won't regret it."

"5 Stars! We have very recently closed on two extraordinay investment properties in Newport. Jason and his team are the reason we were able to find such great assets and move the entire process smoothly to a closing. The entire transaction was professionally managed. Additionally, I was very impressed with Jason's knowledge of this market. We closed on both properties last week and Jason along with business partner Stephen have continued to assist us with managing the transition. This is above and beyond what is expected. Yet it seems to be standard operating proceedure for Jason. We plan to acquire more assets in this market. A large factor contributing to this decision, is our new relationship with Jason. Professional approach, outstanding market knowledge, and commitment AFTER the deal is closed, is why we plan to continue our search for exquisite properties in the Newport market with Jason and his team. I HIGHLY recommend Jason. We are very pleased with our recent acquisitions on Goodwin Street and Touro Street."

"5 Stars! Jason spent over a year helping us find the perfect home. He was patient, caring and knowledgeable. The day we found our condo we put an offer on it! Jason negotiated a great price and was a trusted advisor through the buying, closing and moving process. Best yet, through our deal he and his wife have become good friends."
Debbie Lampert (Newport)
"5 Stars! We are a military family and moved to Rhode Island on orders. Jason Brown and team went the extra mile to help us find the right home for us. During the selection process, Jason helped coordinate a 1.5 day tour (I had limited time as I flew in from the west coast) of every house in the area that I may want to consider. From there, we picked a house and closed prior to moving to the area. Jason made sure that the house was taken care of while we were in transit and responded promptly to any situations that came up. When we finally arrived at our new home, Jason surprised us with a wonderful closing present. I would highly recommend Jason and team to anyone looking to buy a home in the area."
James Chan (Portsmouth)
"5 Stars! Jason started out as the Property Manager for our single family home in Middletown. As a PM, he was constantly looking out for my best interests and the best interests of the property. He found quality tenants and kept me well informed of their needs while taking care of any issues that came up and putting my mind at ease that the property was taken care of. He was available 24/7 and was never too busy to take a call to answer a simple question. Once we decided to sell, he walked me through every step of the process and was clearly watching out for my best interests. He kept me informed and made excellent recommendations, but made it clear that all decisions were ultimately mine to make. I placed my trust in him and in the end, he was able to sell the house faster than expected and we were 100% satisfied with the sale. I highly recommend Jason and his team to anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent a home in the area. You won't be disappointed."
Steven Welch (Middletown)
"5 Stars! It was a great experience working with Jason. He did a fantastic job managing our rental property, going above and beyond often. Then when we decided to sell, Jason managed the entire process always having our interest in mind. He, and Steven, did everything to make sure we had a successful sale. He was in constant communication with us, letting us make decisions, but informing us in all areas. We would highly recommend Jason as a realtor!"
Gail & Steve (Newport)
Once we decided to sell our home, Jason and his team began working immediately on preparing to list and market it. They created a very nice market analysis packet geared towards helping educate us on the proper listing price. Once we had our value in mind, it was listed and we received the offer we wanted quickly and sold the home.
"5 Stars! After speaking with numerous real estate professionals in order to begin the search for a home for my family, I knew Jason would be our best guide after our initial telephone correspondence. Aside from his impressive knowledge of the market and family-oriented business perspective, he gives off a positive vibe and an air of confidence that shadows other professionals in the field. From that first phone call until the day we closed on our new home, Jason was virtually always available to address all of our concerns and go above and beyond to ensure our needs were met. I highly recommend Jason to any prospective homebuyer. His advice is sound, he has a genuine concern for his clients, and will not rest until he finds you the perfect home."
Joshua Weisz-Smith (Bristol)
"5 Stars!My wife and I moved from DC up to RI this summer. We were operating within a short timeline, looking for a house in the Tiverton/Portsmouth area even as our house in DC was on the market. Jason was recommended to us by a friend-and boy did he impress us. We rapidly located the house of our dreams, and Jason immediately swung into action, fighting tooth and nail for us to secure the house even though we were making an offer much lower than the listing price. I've never met a real estate agent as energetic, dedicated and skillful in the art of negotiation. We are truly grateful to have hired him. My wife and I have no doubt that if it had been anyone else, we would not have succeeded in locking down the house. This is definitely someone you want on your side. Can't recommend him enough."
Isk & Jenny (Tiverton)
"5 Stars! I have never met someone with the selling and negotiating skills of Jason Brown. He is professional, smart, savvy, educated, kind, and I could continue to go on and on. If you need to purchase property in the Newport area, there is nobody better qualified for the job. Jason will walk you through the selling, buying, and rental market better than anyone. I had no experience with Newport and Jason took the time to walk me through the whole process, and to patiently show me properties that made sense for me. You are in great hands with Jason. he will treat you like family!"
Stan Vieira (Newport)
"5 Stars!Jason works hard for you and puts your best interest first. He is like a whirling dervish, endless energy. He helped us find and buy the beautiful condo we are now enjoying and he helped us find the right buyer for our house. If you are looking to buy or sell, look no more you hVe found him. Highly recommend Jason Brown"
Joe & Sharon Reynolds (Portsmouth)
"5 Stars! Some months ago I logged onto Zillow to view houses in Newport RI. Within minutes Jason contacted me. This has been a great relationship. We are many states away so Jason is doing an extraordinary job of reviewing houses for us. He has even walked through properties, filming and emailing the videos for our review. Although we have not yet settled on a property I have total confidence that we will find exactly what we want and it will be due to Jason's diligence. I highly recommend this man. He has quickly responded to calls and emails on holidays, Sundays, even his birthday. He is tireless! Contact him. You will not be disappointed!!"
Jann Medeiros (Newport)
"5 Stars!I had the extreme pleasure of working with and ultimately finding a property in Newport, with Jason Brown. Jason is tireless, enthusiastic and, very knowledgable. Jason knows Newport and the surrounding area very well. He is extremely professional, returning calls and emails promptly and following up on questions about properties. If he didn't know the answer, he'd find out. I have worked with many realtors in the past, none compare to Jason. I highly recommend him for a very easy and smooth experience. I have recommended him to many of my friends."
Maureen O'Donoghue (Newport)
"5 Stars! Steven Toole and Jason Brown took on my condo on April 21, 2015-and we closed on August 21, 2015. Both worked very hard on papers, figures, and back and forth negotiations. Long hours on their part. They went above and beyond duty getting the carpet cleaned and Jason helped me move heavy loads of books. Couldn't ask for a more concerned and engaged duo to get this job done. Call them-they will do the same great job for you!"
Eileen Daffron (Newport)
"5 Stars!It's rare to have a great experience when buying, or managing a property, but Jason is the exception. He's helping me buy a property now, and has been fantastic through every aspect of the process ensuring that I got the best deal, and making sure it happened. He's also fantastic managing an existing property. His extensive knowledge of the market is incredibly helpful - he keeps the place rented at optimal rates, and takes care of all/any issues seamlessly. And he is always accessible, and always responsive. Really enjoy working with him - he's made it a great experience."
Bruce Caplain (Newport)
"5 Stars!We couldn?t have been more grateful to have Jason Brown as our realtor to guide us through the process of purchasing our first home. He was patient, professional and knowledgeable every step of the way. As first time homebuyers, he was readily available by phone or email, patiently answering our (many!) questions, giving thorough explanations, offering helpful and objective advice, and giving creative solutions. In searching for the perfect home, he left no stone unturned, and there was never a time we didn?t feel he sincerely had our best interests at heart. Since closing on our house two years ago, we have made countless wonderful memories in our home. We have Jason Brown to thank for making the transition from renters to homeowners joyful and stress-free. If you want a realtor that will make your needs their priority, work with Jason Brown and his colleagues at Kavanaugh Grant!"
Jess DeMartino (Exeter)
"5 Stars!Jason and Amy are not only exceptional realtors but also incredible people! We have had a five year journey with them as our property manager and realtor for our Newport home. We are a military family and left the keys in their hands while we moved to the other side of the country. Even though we were thousands of miles away, Jason was always available to us and took excellent care of the house and tenants. When it came time to sell our home, Jason proved he was the expert, level headed professional we needed. Again living in another state we needed his help with everything- repairs, preparing the house for viewings, working with the tenants, and on and on. As first time home sellers, he educated us on the market and what to expect which helped tremendously when an offer fell apart. He managed an unexpected 20K repair a few weeks before closing and never once wavered from his calm and professional demeanor. We were informed every step of the way and his leadership carried the deal across the finish line. Honestly we could not have asked for a better experience. Do not hesitate to entrust Jason and Amy with your home, they truly are exceptional and you will not regret it. Thank you Amy and Jason, we couldn?t have done it without you!
