I had Jeff pressured to sell my 44 Sea Ray in 30 days since I had a new yacht arriving. No matter what time or day, he worked diligently with pin-point focus to find a buyer at market price. I would definitely use Jeff again and recommend him to anyone needing a yacht broker.- F. Siman
I have worked with Jeff on a number of vessel transactions. He is always punctual, detail-oriented, and good with follow-ups. He knows the vessels that are involved in the transaction and honestly communicates and discloses any possible defects or issues with each boat. Moreover, he is able to help his clients navigate through the myriad of complex issues involved in complicated vessel transactions.- D. Neblett
Just a note to let you know how much we appreciate your maintaining a high-level of professional focus on our Hatteras transaction. Though there were several complicating factors and this went over many months of effort, Jeff hung in there and pulled it off for us. We had engaged with two other brokers previous to Jeff and my management and my decision to stay with him on this endeavor was rewarded with a successful close.- S. Weiss
Please allow this letter to serve as my wholehearted attempt to recommend that you employ Jeff Beird as your yacht broker. I listed my 77' Hatteras with him and the yacht was sold in 5 months and my experience was as good as it gets with a yacht broker. Jeff was always professional, always listened carefully to me regarding my thoughts and desires, and never undermine my best interests in any way whatsoever. If there was anything that he didn't know about my Hatteras, he took the time to research and learn about it. When the buyer came along, he handled the procurement of the contract, and the subsequent survey and sea-trial with great delicacy and professionalism.- B. Fink
Thank you for your dedicated effort to sell "MONSTER MASH". My partners and I appreciate all of the work and the effective advertising to achieve the best price. We look forward to working with you again!- J. Mashburn
I was referred to Jeff from my lawyer who also used Jeff to buy his yacht. He is one of the nicest, most professional brokers we have ever dealt with. His service during the sale and the help he has provided us after the sale is amazing. If you are looking for the best broker for you to buy or sell, I highly recommend him.- L. Hogan
Jeff was the broker on the seller side. However, I found Jeff knowledgeable and very straight forward and honest. After the sale, Jeff provided us with outstanding service and contacts which we found to be invaluable. I will use Jeff again and do not hesitate recommending Jeff to others.- R. Rafool
