Meet Jarl

Jarl & Mary Kubat

My name is Jarl Kubat of West USA Realty & Arizona Retirement Communities | The beautiful woman sitting next to me is my high school sweet heart♥ and has been married to me for the past 27 years(no, I did not rob the cradle, she is one year and one day younger than I) . She is also the mother of our 3 great kids ( a son (25) & identical twin girls (22)). Mary & I were both born and raised in Southern Minnesota. We owned and operated Kubat’s Tree Service from 1987 – 2004.

My family and I decided to make Arizona our home in 2004 after I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in the fall of 2003. The warm dry climate of Arizona has been good for my arthritic bones and has helped me to stay physically active.

Real Estate | Buyers Agent

My specialty, is selling homes in Active Adult Communities (55+) throughout Arizona. I consider myself a Buyers Agent, representing YOU the buyer. Working as a buyers agent, my job includes the following:

  • Finding you a home that fits your budget, in a community that enhances your life style.
  • Help you determine current market value for the home you choose.
  • Negotiate the best possible (lowest) price, terms and, conditions.

The Arizona real estate market is ever changing. When choosing a real estate agent, it is important to find one that works for and represents you the buyer. During the course of your purchase prior to close of escrow, I will facilitate, schedule, and review: home & termite inspection reports, seller property disclosures, home owner association (H.O.A.) documents / CC&R’s,  and title company reports etc…

My Fee / Commission

My fee (commission) is paid from the sellers proceeds at successful close of escrow. Using I Jarl Kubat as your agent, costs you know additional monies.

Listing Agent Duties

The listing agents job, is to negotiate for the seller, the highest price, with the best possible terms and conditions. The best thing that happens when you purchase your home from the listing agent is: listing agent gets a double commission!

Considering a For Sale By Owner

Homes for Sale by owner…what can I Say? I could try and scare you out of looking at them, by telling you some horror stories. I am not going to do that. What I am going to do… is, offer you my services. If you have found a home that is perfect for you (a FSBO), give me a call.

For a fee of: $1,995.00 (payable to West USA Realty, by you, at successful close of escrow… You owe me nothing, if the home does not close).  This fee will cover the following services:

  • Determine fair market value
  • Present your offer to seller
  • Facilitate, schedule and/or review the following
    • Open escrow
    • Inspections (home & termite)
    • Mortgage & Appraisal (if needed and/or desired)
    • Seller disclosures
    • Title search
    • H.O.A documents and CC&R’s
    • Repair and/or remodelling estimates
    • Final walk-through ( prior to close of escrow)
    • Advice for keeping closing costs down

Before you visit your next for sale by owner, call me so we can establish a working relationship. I will do all that I can, to keep you from becoming the next horror story.

Visiting Open Houses

Real estate agents can be very possessive of possible future clients they meet while holding an open house. Typically, the agent hosting an open house is either the listing agent, or a member of the listing agents team. Either way, they represent the seller (not you)! So before you visit your next open house, contact me. We will establish a working relationship so, when you are asked “are you working with anyone?” you can say…. “We are working with Jarl!”

Closing Remarks

I hope the above, has provided you with some useful information. In the mean time, I look forward to meeting you in person and would sincerely appreciate your business!

Kindest Regards,

Jarl Kubat
