Martinsburg, WV 25401
My name is Jay Deeds and I reside in Spring Mills, having lived in the Eastern Panhandle of WV most of my life--more specifically a small community called Bedington, outside of Martinsburg.
I am a graduate of The George Washington University with a bachelor's degree in international business/finance and received an MBA from the University of Maryland.
After investing in real estate and managing rental properties since 2002, I became a full-time agent in 2004. I hold the following certifications: ABR, Accredited Buyer Representative; CDPE, Certified Distressed Property Expert; CRS, Certified Residential Specialist; E-PRO, Certified Internet Professional; GRI, Graduate REALTOR Institute; GREEN; MRP, Military Relocation Professional; and SFR, Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource.
In 2012, I opened Home Quest Realty, a small boutique real estate firm, as both broker and owner in West Virginia and Maryland. Actively involved in the real estate community, I was selected to be a Director, Eastern Panhandle Board of REALTORS (EPBR) and selected and graduated from the West Virginia Association of REALTORS (WVAR) 2014 Leadership Academy inaugural class. I was also named the EPBR's 2016 REALTOR® of the Year. I continue to be a Director, WVAR.
2017 has been a big year. We opened Keller Williams Realty Eastern Panhandle. My Home Quest Team is now backed by a leading international franchise; I am the operating principal/owner and broker.
With continued success, we are expanding into surrounding states—Virginia and Pennsylvania. If you need a great agent or team of agents, you’ve come to the right place! Please don’t hesitate to ask me about joining KW

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
Everything you need to know about buying or selling a home or real estate should be found here on my website! As the a real estate professional in my community--having bought and sold many properties myself--I am dedicated to providing the finest service available.
Because the real estate industry is becoming more sophisticated and challenging every day, you need a professional that understands the industry and is positioned to stay ahead of the game. That's why I constantly research the market and property values so your home is priced effectively from day one.
I also make sure the public knows your home is for sale by using innovative advertising and marketing techniques to attract potential buyers.

"Working with Jay Deeds at Home Quest Realty exceeded all of my expectations. Right away, Jay was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly , and efficient in helping my family and I sell our father's house . He came to our first meeting well prepared and answered all of our questions regarding the sales process of an estate property. He was extremely responsive to all of our questions throughout the process no matter how many questions we’ve asked! He proposed an efficient sale plan, arranged for the photographs, gave us good and thoughtful advice on getting the house ready for the market. The sale went extremely well. We got several offers within a couple of weeks and were able to sell the house in a quick, professional, and painless way .. I can’t wait to work with him again!! "
