Where to start.

First off Jackie is amazing. This is my 9th cross country move in 30 years. This was a corporate relocation to NC from CA.

From our first conversation on the phone Jackie has a style and charm that put me at easy that I was getting a true professional and was going to make the house hunt in a new state a joy verse a chore.

Jackie understood what we were looking for and what type of living / lifestyle we were looking to embrace here in NC.

Jackie was very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and what would work will for our work styles / commute desires along with avoiding the cookie cutter homes / communities which would not have meet our needs.

You cannot go wrong with Jackie. She is upbeat, knowledgeable and stays on top of your questions a concerns through the whole process.

P.S. The project manager in me loved the detailed map tours we had when visiting homes, allowing us time to GPS driving distances and commutes from the various homes, along with her due diligence she performed when we had questions about the home or the neighborhood.

If I ever require home buying services again her in NC i know exactly who i am going too.

Director of Client Services
From the moment we met Jackie, we knew everything would be done to find us the perfect house. Jackie is confident, friendly and a great listener. Her instincts are keen at reading between the lines of what a client or client-couple might be trying to convey. Most folks buy a new house once a decade or so, but Jackie's experience and ability to subtly share ideas is a big help in this daunting task.

Jackie showed us homes on either end of our price range early on and carefully remembered features and drawbacks of every home we visited in the past. This made it easy for us to narrow in on the features and locations that mattered most to us. We highly recommend her services and encourage everyone to enjoy Jackie's professionalism, easy-going humor, sharp mind and how she always seems to go the extra mile in finding just the right properties and other resources that make a new house into a comfortable home.

I had a great experience buying my house with Jackie a couple of years ago. When I choose to make a move again she will be the first one I call.

In addition to being great at her own job, she had a network of professionals that made all the other tasks like financing and repairs so much easier.

I highly recommend Jackie for your next real estate sale or purchase.

Simply can't say enough great things about Jackie! My wife and I have worked with her on both sides of the relocation process, first selling a house, and then 4 years later moving back to the area to buy a house. She was always looking out for our best interests, and available to help us anytime we needed her. She never makes you feel like you're bothering her in any way with any question or issue that comes up. She makes you feel like you're her only client and gives you her full attention.

With her help, we've now found our "forever" home and we are extremely happy. Very easy to talk to, and fun to work with. Great experiences both times. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Jackie was wonderful to work with throughout the whole process of shopping for a new home, negotiating the new home, and then the selling of our previous home. Helping us get the best deal possible on the new and maximizing what we got out of the old, the value she brought to the table was apparent.

Jackie did a great job as both selling and buying agent for us. She took so much of the stress out of the process. She was there for us every step of the way. I highly recommend her to anyone looking of a real estate agent.

Jackie did a fantastic job. We were selling our house on short notice for a cross country move and she handled everything incredibly quickly. She always had tons of insight on the best way to handle the situations we found ourselves in. I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else.

Because we are out-of-state sellers, we had to conduct our search for a realtor from lour rental company's recommendation. Jackie was one of four realtors we interviewed. We sent out a list of questions for possible realtors to answer then conducted phone interviews. Jackie was the only one who was meticulous and forth-coming with her answers. Not only did she provide us with detailed answers to our questions, but she willingly gave us more to consider for our decision. We needed someone who would communicate with us and would offer solid advice.

When I spoke to Jackie for the first time on the phone, I was immediately impressed by how she understood our need to see the numbers and to be kept informed.

I am beyond certain that working with Jackie is why this whole process has been as smooth as it has been. Despite the little hiccups - from coordinating repairs to confusion with closing dates to dealing with the time difference between East and West Coast - she has been concise, blunt, and communicative. She understood that we were looking for someone who would advocate for us, who would educate us on the market and the process, and who would also make the experience a pleasant one for the buyers. I wish Jackie was local because I wouldn't mind having her be our go-to realtor. She is personable, dependable, and most importantly, trustworthy.

I would recommend her to any of our friends and colleagues still in the area.

Jackie was our neighbor when she got started in real estate. After some time went by (cpl years mayabe) my wife and I decided to move to a home with a little more land and more space. We decided to go with Jackie and we could not have made a better decision. She took us to a few houses before we found the one we wanted. This particular home was a challenge due to the fact it was currently under renovation. We went back and forth, with the seller, for what seemed like forever but Jackie was able to get the right deal for us and we've been here for 8yrs now. Jackie also sold the home we were living in twice! That's a long story ;) I could not recommend Jackie enough.

Jackie is a high-energy, detail oriented, client-focused Realtor. As a closing attorney, I enjoy working with Jackie and her clients, because I know her clients are in great hands.

Her knowledge of the real estate market is unequivocal, and she possesses extraordinary talent in advising, supporting, and advocating for her clients.

We had Jackie working with us finding our first rental home in the area and she did a great job. When we were finally ready to buy our first house, we had no doubt she was the right person.
Always on top of everything, she showed us many many houses and never pushed us, very fast to get us to view any house on the market, always with a smile and her energy.
She really drove us through the process in the best way I can possibly have wished for.
She helped us get the house we wanted in a very competitive market and we couldn't be happier.
She was a real asset also recomending mortgage assistance, inspections etc.
And when we decided to leave the area she put us through a rental company we are very happy with.
One day we might sell our house. We don't need to look any further because we know she's the best: professional, experienced, knowledgeable and enjoyable.
Oct 16, 2017
Jackie is a warm, high energy, upbeat person and a consumate professional. She worked tirelessly with us to find our home, despite our long (possibly unrealistic) wish list and how long it took for us to find just the right one. She is highly committed to her clients and will treat you like she would one of her good friends. Jackie will return your calls, answer your questions, and fight for what's in your best interest. I have previously, and will continute to, strongly recommend Jackie to everyone I know. You won't be disappointed!

We moved across the country and were very nervous about finding a new realtor, as we absolutely loved our old one. However Jackie was absolutely amazing!she worked so hard for us and scheaduled the time to meet us when we were going to be in town and on our scheadule. We decided to build rather then buy existing and Jackie has been there every step of the way. She has not missed a meeting and has asked questions we hadn’t thought about. When we need a realtor in the future she will be the first and only call we will make.
