This is kinda long winded but well worth the read if you are looking for a stellar agent. I’m only giving Jackie a 5/5 because Yelp wont let me give her a 10/5! We sold and purchased with Jackie and cant wait to recommend her to others and work with her again.
We have worked with other realtors in the past and I have a few friends who are agents but Jackie blows them all out of the water! At our initial meeting Jackie showed up with a binder full of research about our neighborhood, our market trends, all possible costs, how much she thought we would profit, potential buyer profiles, and even zoning information. We immediately knew we were working with a true pro.
Jackie let us know what was worth fixing and what the ROI would be as well as how to stage the house for maximum impact. She has a boatload of reliable, affordable vendors to get your house into perfect selling condition and she staged our home beautifully. She carefully whipped up the marketing machine, put our house on all effective media channels, and managed to sell our home above asking price in only 1 day on the market! Bam! oh yeah… and that binder she brought on day 1 …turns out she nailed the final price to the penny.
Now it was time to buy. My wife and I were somewhat unsure what we wanted so Jackie was patient and thorough. We saw quite a few houses and we never once felt any pressure to buy a house that wasn’t perfect for us. She didn’t even bat an eyelash when we had to back out of an offer after an inspection revealed some hidden concerns. She can quickly give you an estimate on moving that wall or adding a garage to help you weigh up the deal. Ultimately she landed us our dream home!
You think your agent knows the ins and outs of contracts and offers? Well Jackie is better. She’s like a ninja mixed with a bloodhound mixed with a Jedi. She sneaks up on the contract, sniffs out any problems, and then makes it dance to her whims. Jackie repeatedly catches mistakes of other more junior agents and gracefully picks up after them to keep the deal rolling. She has tons of strategies to win bid wars and objections, she’s a MAESTRO with comps and valuations, and she is constantly working at all hours of the night and day. (She even put an offer in on her birthday… which we got, and under asking price!!!)
On top of it all, Jackie is fun to work with! We truly felt like we had a friend and a teammate and not just someone to find us a house. She has a great attitude and is always pleasant to roll with!
So, you could go with your buddy who does the agent thing on the side or your Aunt Marge that wont charge you much to help out her favorite nephew and HOPE everything works out…. or you can guarantee success by working the Michael Jordan of the Denver Real Estate game. JACKIE ROCKS!!!
