About Jay Richards

Jay Richards


My name is Jay Richards, and I am proud to say that I have been a resident of the South Shore of Nova Scotia my entire life. After completing my elementary and secondary education, I attended the NSCC Lunenburg Campus, where I received my Business Administration diploma. I went on to gain my REALTOR® Sales Person License and my Broker’s License. Since then, I have continued to upgrade my certification by completing many other courses and certificate programs related to the realty industry over the past decade in order to stay competitive with this evolving industry.

Growing up, I saw firsthand the time, dedication, and commitment that is required to work in this market. As the son of Sandra and Bob Richards, the developers of two of the premier land lease communities in Atlantic Canada (LaHave Heights and Eisenhaur Place), the love for this work was instilled in me at a very young age and I couldn’t imagine dedicating my time to any other venture.

One of the things that sets me apart in this industry is my cutting-edge use of technology to aid others in buying and selling homes. Through the use of high quality photography, drone footage, and video tours, I pride myself on having a keen-eye and am able to highlight all of the selling-features of your property. When purchasing a home, my collaboration center allows you to interact on-the-go with listings and be up-to-date on what’s new on the market in real-time. I offer a competitive 1% CASH BACK* on real estate purchases and 4% LISTING COMMISSION.  And no admin fees, ever!

As owner and broker of Holm Realty Ltd., I am able to offer superior service with unparalleled value. I am also the proud owner of The Home Centre, your Kent Homes Dream Builder for South Shore Nova Scotia, which enables me to provide my clients with quality custom-built, new, manufactured home construction.

By nature, I am friendly, professional, dependable, and love to connect with others. I value people’s time and take interest in truly understanding what my clients are asking for when they are selling a home, and what they are looking for in buying their new or next home. I am hard-working, driven and consider myself to be a problem-solver.  I am passionate about the culture, the traditions, the landscape, and most importantly, about supporting the people that live here on the South Shore.

But, what I love most about this career path is helping people make their dreams in realty, a reality!
