Here’s what a client who was going through a Divorce had to say about working with Jackie in a difficult time:
“My situation certainly wasn’t unique in terms of needing to sell a home, but due to the nature of the situation, it required sensitivity, discretion, professionalism and an ability to effectively balance working and communicating separately with two parties trying to sell one home. From the start, Jackie went out of her way to put my mind at ease. She traveled an hour and half to meet with me in person, talk through details, and assure me that she would do the best job possible to not only present and market the house in the best way possible, but that she would use her skills and expertise to ensure the process was as smooth and seamless as possible.
When the decision was made to put the house on the market earlier than planned, Jackie wasted no time and quickly adjusted her timeline and everything that needed to be done to make it happen. The house was staged, pictures taken and on the market within a week. The first weekend, Jackie had an open house, resulting in good traffic. She noted that this house was going to require a certain type of buyer and could quickly discern serious buyers, which was helpful in realizing that I needed to exercise patience and let Jackie do her thing.
It took a little time and some price adjusting, due to the size of the home and market, to find the right buyer. Along the way, Jackie provided thoughtful guidance, patience, and support. Sure enough, everything paid off and the perfect buyer came along. Once the house went under contract, it was an easy and clean process, with Jackie continuously keeping me informed and respecting the circumstances of working with two sellers separately.
Jackie really did an outstanding job — from start to finish — selling the home. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of selling a home! Athough I’ve not experienced buying a home with her, I know she would do an amazing job finding the right place for anyone. With plans to move out of state, she offered and found Realtors in each location I was interested in. She didn’t have to do that, but I appreciated her willingness to do so.
Overall, working with Jackie was a positive experience and I can’t thank her enough for the way she handled a difficult situation. She was a great partner and a true professional, and I’m confident she can work with anyone — buyer or seller — and provide excellent service and a great experience!”
