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

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.

"Jay was wonderful and he got it done! We had previously listed with others without results. When we first met he told me "your house will be sold before winter"..,I was very doubtful but he was right! He was very supportive in explaining the process as it was my first experience. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional, I strongly recommend him. Just WOW!! "
-Martine Bourque, Client
"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!! "

As well, Jay's friendly personality, sense of humor, and knowledge of the industry made the entire process as painless as possible. Thank you Jay!"
"My Realtor, Jay Deeds is set apart from most other Realtors. While this was our first church purchase and with all of the requirements set-forth to sell a church, Jay encouraged me to continue on and that it would all work out. I must admit that this was a hard road for me to encounter, but Jay was there all the way guiding me every step of the way! This man had a "Plan" and the results landed our congregation on the path to owning our first church. Praise the Lord! Bishop Gilcreast"

"Jay was with us for over a year while we searched for a house. He spent time showing us dozens and dozens of houses. At times, we could be a bit difficult to please, but Jay stayed with us. After a long time searching, we found our perfect home. Jay is loyal and easy to work with. Even if he wasn't available to show, he would arrange to have it shown to us at our convenience. Thank you Jay. We love our new home! -Brett & Tara"
-Brett & Tara, Client
"Short version:Good fun honest guy. Long version:Jay helped us find a perfect very, very remote property. We did not know him or know of him at all before our initial meeting at a house he was the listing agent for. He had a very trustworthy personality so we told him that house wasn't what we wanted, explained what we were looking for (which was by no means a normal list), and he came up with a list of potential houses. He and his dog did not hesitate to take us to some of the most remote of areas in Morgan county looking for that perfect someplace, kind of like one of those buying Alaska type shows without the snow but with a lap dog and rock crawling in a Cadillac. Honestly I would not have driven an Escalade thru the stuff we had him doing and I am kind of impressed it made it. House hunting with Jay was fun and an adventure, in the end we did not buy a house at all.....he directed us to the option which fit our needs best, which was raw land to build what we really wanted how we"
-Phil & Kristy Aiello, Client

"Jay was awesome to work with!!! If it wasn't for Jays hard work we would have waited another 3-4 weeks to close on our home, or even had been bumped out of the contract itself as the house we bought was a short sale.. It was a long process, and we all was glad the day of closing!!! Jay spent hours on the phone for us to be able to get into our house in a timely manner. Thanks JAY for all your hard work for our family. We are happy and getting settled into OUR house very nicely! "
