Wow, what to say and how to appropriate due credit to Mr. Jon Heisel. I met Jon a short time ago while in search of the perfect boat “my first boat”. I searched the internet and came across a Sea Ray 260 Sundancer. Unfortunately, the one I had seen on the internet had already been sold. This is when I met Jon, as he was the broker that had sold the 260 that I was interested in. He mentioned that he had a 2nd 260 that I might be interested in. I checked into it and liked it. I brought my family down to see the boat and meet a Jon. He continuously included my wife and 14 year old son in conservation. Answering all of our questions and knowing that this was our first boat, offering to take us out for docking lessons and education on boating. I cannot begin to address how much I appreciated his professionalism, integrity and genuine honesty. Especially given dollar amount associated with this purchase. What I am humbled by, is that he was selling this boat on behalf of the seller yet providing me with a wealth of information and guidance that you just cannot buy. Jon has been at my side from start to finish making the whole process go as smooth as possible. To expand on his level of commitment, 1 hour after signing the closing paperwork, Jon and I we’re out practicing docking when the engine quit. Come to find out, the high pressure fuel pump stopped working causing the engine to quit. Jon made a phone call, tow boat came out and brought us back and I never saw a bill of which I know there was, but he took care of it without me ever asking! Ask yourself, how many people do you know would do that? 40 years ago, my grandfather said that throughout your life, you will be able to count all your “true” friends on one hand. I consider Mr. Jon Heisel one of those ” true” friends! I am an airline captain by trade and held to very high standards. I see this same attribute in Jon as he is a True Professional in his trade! Even after the purchase, he still checks in and I can tell you when comes time for upgrade, there is “one” and only “one” person I will call! Thank you again, Jon for all that you have done for me! A true professional at hand!
