"Jesse Adams at Aerista was very patient since I began looking for a plane in a VERY different category: single-engine piston, and much older. As I learned more from him, it was evident that the safety profile of a turbine, glass panel, was worth the higher price tag. I’m flying two kids around (often through a marine layer); so, safety matters to me much more than it used to. Jesse set honest expectations about operating costs, connected me with great insurance people, and even helped me find a school and instructor. Jesse was encouraging through my turbine transition, and it all worked out. I don’t know how I could’ve found the right plane without a great broker! "

“I welcome N995S to her new home in South Texas – A Meridian Turboprop beauty with a fully integrated Garmin avionics “glass” system! And now a special 'Thank You' to: Aircraft Sales & Acquisitions and former Airline Pilot, Mr. Jesse Adams. Thank you, Jesse, for an exceptional job in leading the acquisition process and finding this fine airplane. I’m looking forward to starting where I left off in my passion for flying and look especially forward to helping those in need with my continued support for Angel Flight South Central.”

"Thank you for your help in selling my Meridian. You always responded quickly to my calls and messages, and provided with me with regular updates on inquiries about the aircraft. One of the things I found most useful was the analyses you sent on how my aircraft was positioned relative to comparable Meridians on the market. This helped me to establish asking prices that were competitive and that resulted in sale of the aircraft."

"Jesse Adams helped me with the whole process, including not only very honest guidance on the acquisition stage, but also on follow up such as tax advice, maintenance, and all kind of support that did not end after I signed the bill of sale. He advocated on my behalf during the pre-purchase and annual inspections, and even saved me some extra $$$ in that process. Jesse knows his trade... but is not the common sales person; he goes deeper understanding the client, respecting opinions and going the extra mile, not just to secure the deal for the seller, but to assure everybody is satisfied. I dealt before with other brokers, and I can attest to Jesse's effort in assuring your satisfaction at every level of the process and beyond. Do not hesitate to work with Aerista and Jesse... Thank you!"

"I would like to thank Jesse Adams with Aerista for his handling of the sale of our Cirrus. From the start with his very thorough Appraisal Report, including recommended sales price range, through the final closing and funding, Jesse was professional and handled every detail of the sale. He got the listing on line quickly with a very thorough sales presentation. He kept me informed on every response, and in less than two weeks we had a very fair offer. His team communicated with me every step of the way. Jesse handled the negotiations and final contract amount, arranged for and piloted the test flight with the new buyer and flew the plane to the pre buy inspection mechanic. He expertly handled the repair negotiations with the buyer. The rest of the Aerista team took over from there, and all the details of the closing were quickly worked out including identifying and handling a paperwork issue with the previous owner’s title. Nothing but kudos for Jesse and Aerista.”
