My Bio

Joby is a hard-working, innovative real estate professional with over 13 years experience in the real estate industry. He earned an MBA in Real Estate graduating in the top of his class with Sigma Beta Delta Honors and a 3.90 GPA. He is a Florida Licensed Real Estate Salesperson and a Member of the National Association of Realtors, Florida Association of Realtors, and Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches.

Joby began his career as a property manager on exclusive Palm Beach Island managing a multi-million dollar property portfolio. He then joined in the formation of a mortgage company and a real estate investment partnership. Today as a Realtor, Joby uses the experience he gained personally buying, selling, and managing millions of dollars of residential and commercial real estate to provide his clients with a level of service and knowledge that far exceeds that of the average real estate agent.
A native of South Florida, Joby has called Palm Beach County home for the last 14 years and resides there with his wife and two children. Joby is able to share this knowledge of the Palm Beaches in assisting his clients with their home search, listing, and relocation needs. Joby is especially proficient with the negotiation and navigation of short sale transactions. While all the fad now, Joby began successfully negotiating short sales in 2004 when most other agents had never even heard of a short sale. Boasting a 98% success rate in receiving bank approval of his short sale listings is why more and more clients choose to list their short sale properties with Joby and his team. For a buyer client, Joby recently was able to negotiate a $104,000 price reduction off a short sale lender's asking price. He also helped a buyer close on their dream home, another short sale transaction after their prior agent could not close the transaction for them, and three other buyers before them could not close the deal. Whether a home seller, first time home buyer, out-of-state client, or real estate investor, Joby always provides his clients with top-notch service and expertise.

Client Testimonials

When Joby asked us to write a short testimonial, I first thought, how am I ever going to make it short!  Joby is a honest, hardworking, professional with one goal in mind; make his client happy while having the upmost integrity for all other parties involved.  We discovered Joby via his website a year and half before we bought our home.  It was a Friday night when I first submitted a request and about 15 minutes later got a personalized phone call.  My husband and I have been extremely impressed very since!
Joby worked with us daily for 6 months over the internet and another 8 months in person.  Every single day he dedicated his time, respected our budget, and was very determined to find all of our 'must haves' in a home.  The best part, he never made me feel guilty if it was our 10th house in 3 days and I still hadn't found 'the one!'  Come crunch time he was up to bat for us again, working with our mortgage broker and using his business skills to negotiate rates and all those last minute details.  

After our closing, the very last thing I said to Joby was, 'Thank you SO much and that's coming from someone who doesn't even like realtors!'  We've worked with many realtors, none of which we were dying to work with again.  We have been lied to, misinformed, avoided for days, and left wondering who's side our realtor was actually on.  Hire Joby Slay and you'll be making one of the best decisions you've ever made.  We certainly did!!

"Joby was instrumental throughout our home buying process!!! We greatly appreciated the guidance, patience, and in-depth knowledge that he exhibited. "Joby was instrumental throughout our home buying process!!! We greatly appreciated the guidance, patience, and in-depth knowledge that he exhibited. Joby was always responsive to all of our inquiries whether via telephone or email. Our situation was a unique one, being that we were living in the Bahamas during our home-buying process, which attests to Joby's excellent customer service skills because he was extremely flexible in working with our travel schedule. He is a dedicated professional that I would highly recommend to anyone!!! Because of Joby's expertise the Taylor Family now has a place to call "home!!""   (Sincere Gratitude from the Taylor Family (Jermane Sr., Ebonie, Jermane Jr. & Jalil) 

My experience with Joby as a realtor was fantastic. And for most people who go through the process of selling a home, working with a realtor can be equated to making frequent trips to the dentist!

From our first meeting, throughout the entire sale process and closing, Joby went over and above the job description. He knows the local market extremely well and came to every meeting well prepared. Ultimately, Joby helped me sell my home on average by $20,000 more than any other realtor thought could be done at the time.    Joby’s communication was always clear with me as he continuously took the time to explain things which made the process much easier than it otherwise might have been. I also learned that Joby is an expert in the latest and most effective modern ways of marketing a home and to trust his marketing plan.
I highly recommend Joby Slay for anyone buying, selling, or renting a home in south Florida.  - Paul Gozzo
"Joby, Thank you so much for helping me sell my home. You have done a fantastic job. From day one you have generated nothing but interest in my house with over 40 people coming to see my home in the past few months. You were even able to put my house under Contract within the first 2 weeks. And although the Buyers had to pullout for undisclosed reasons you obtained a second Contract within 30 days. I would be happy to refer you to my friends and family and please feel free to use me as a reference. " The Mortons, Jupiter, FL Wed Aug 12, 2009

""Joby is an honest and driven individual. He does what he says he will do and works hard to provide the best possible solutions to any obstacle. I would definitely do business with Joby again in a heartbeat."" Steve Krystyniak, Palm Beach Gardens, FL Tue Mar 11, 2008

Joby has been a long time friend and my wife and I wanted to work with someone that we could trust. We were about to endure the gruesome process of a short sale. We met with Joby and he laid out the major steps in the process that we should expect. Expectations were high and we were optimistic heading into the process. My wife and I successfully short sold our house thanks to Joby and his team. We have no regrets. Joby is aggressive, very knowledgeable, and extremely communicative throughout the sales process. I encourage others to meet with Joby about their options.
