Jessica was fantastic to work with throughout the entire process of selling our home. She was readily available to answer our many questions, spending hours of her time making sure we understood each step along the way. She was proactive in her communication with us, as well as with the buyers' agent and the escrow officer. Real estate transactions can be highly stressful, but our minds were far more at ease knowing that we had Jessica in our corner.

With both of us working from home due to the COVID pandemic, there were some challenges around making time for the buyers to be in our home without us there. Jessica handled this with grace and patience, making sure we had advance notice and even helping us find a place to work while the buyers were in the home. Simply, she went above and beyond in every aspect to make sure we were confident in what we were doing, and achieved a successful outcome.

We would highly recommend Jessica without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Bay Area.

Jessica was absolutely incredible - the BEST! 12/10. Cannot recommend her highly enough, and have already told friends about her. Why?

1. She is the consummate professional. She explains clearly and thoroughly on emails, and walks you through everything so you're not making decisions you don't understand. She wants you to be happy and find a good fit, and remains cautiously optimistic without ever trying to convince you. She also helped us navigate the other parties when they made mistakes (like our title company), which made such a huge difference to have her in our corner - peace of mind in the process because she had earned our trust. She also got us $5000 back as a seller credit based on good advice!

2. She works extremely hard, and is very available. She showed me houses at all hours, and was also flexible when I needed to take a few months off my search. She also recommended a lender to me who also answers emails and calls in evenings and that was helpful too! She was patient when I equivocated on houses or needed to take time to calculate my bids (we bid on 4 houses).

3. She is a wonderful human being, and so thoughtful! She gave me gifts from her clients who run small businesses, like desserts and coffee, and gave me a bottle of wine at closing. It was also great getting to know her personally, and meet her family and cute kiddos. She was in the air-force before, and loves what she does now and it shows.

4. She sticks with you after the process, and goes above and beyond. She has recommended a slew of handymen, electricians, flooring folks, sidewalk repair, roofing repair, landscaping, security, etc. She even helped us get some free furniture! All of this makes a huge difference as a first time homeowner who is a bit overwhelmed at all the moving parts. Can't thank her enough.

You'd be super lucky to have her as your realtor -- it was without a doubt the #1 most important part of the process for us.

Jessica represented my son, Zachary, in the difficult process of purchasing his first house with the financial assistance of the Landed Foundation (to help teachers by homes). Jessica was exemplary in all aspects of this process -- identifying appropriate properties, providing expert guidance, walking us through the various procedures and paperwork, and more paperwork, and more paperwork. California is a much more challenging real estate market and regulatory environment than anything I had previously experienced. Jessica is a "get it done" person who paid attention to our requests and to the demands of the process by listening well and following through on all details.

Dealing with owners, realtors, banks, the title company, inspectors, contractors and a non-profit foundation required unusual attention to detail and a calm and positive attitude. She had all the skills, knowledge and the right personal qualities to be superb at her job.

It is especially valuable that after the closing she continues to offer assistance with contractors and other details. I regard myself and my son as very fortunate to have had her as our realtor.

Jessica has been a very helpful , knowledgeable and very professional agent.
She is very patient with costumers in answering questions that we couldn't understand also very easy to reach no matter what time of the day.
Surely we will recommend her to our friends.

Jessica was recommended to us by a friend and we are so thankful and happy to have worked with Jessica. Jessica represented us on the buy side and was professional, courteous and personable. She was extremely diligent, thorough, ready with the checklists to keep us on track of deadlines and responsive to all our questions. She loves what she does and but also takes great pride in meeting our goals. During the process, she checked in constantly, listened to our needs and has met and exceeded every expectation. She has been with us from beginning to end but even post sales, have checked in and have been a great friend to us.

As first-time homebuyers, we were a bit intimidated by the hot, unique market that is the Bay Area. Jessica provided a constant, professional, steady presence from our initial conversation all the way through the offer process, escrow, and closing. Jessica is knowledgeable about Bay Area real estate and creative in her approach to writing a really great offer. When she says she works hard for clients, she means it. Furthermore, she is just plain fun to work with and genuinely cares for her clients and their housing needs. We give Jessica our highest recommendation and look forward to any future work together!

Jess is fantastic. A kind, highly competent always-accessible realtor who was a pleasure to work with and made buying a house a joy for our family.

She came highly recommended by a friend and we’re thrilled to recommend her highly to anyone buying a home in the Bay Area.

She met with us first at a bar near our former apartment, pointed us to neighborhoods we hadn’t considered, joined us later to look at many houses, and answered our numerous questions about those houses by text or email -- almost always within moments of our having asked them.

We have a toddler and crowded schedules. But Jess made our time constraints easy -- chatting with us after our kid’s bedtime or during his nap time even during the busy weeks of our closing, which, to our understanding, was more complicated than most.

And Jess has continued after our closing to help us find experienced and affordable contractors to put in new floors, replace broken roof shingles, repair an outdated electrical panel, and clean up dry rot.

We could go on - Jess is enormously generous with her time and energy. She’s extraordinarily bright and levelheaded. But we just want to end with this: hire her. We did and we are so happy for it.

Jessica was recommended to us by a client of mine. Upon our initial exploratory meeting, she carefully listened to our needs and understood our situation.

Very organized from selling our condo to moving us to a single-family home.

She is the ideal real estate agent. Being empathetic, knowledgeable and ethical are given. What makes her distinct goes down to three things : (1) having great control on the process, (2) proactive communicator and (3) service above and beyond.

All positive experience, you will love working with her. We also want to recognize the team that supported her from loan officer to handyman, etc.

It was a pleasure working with Jessica, we are glad to have her in our lives.

We recently sold our house through Jess Pavoni at Dudum Real Estate Group. We can highly recommend her. She was efficient, professional and excellent at communicating with us on every aspect of the process. Jess is a hustler and was always willing to go the extra mile to make the process easier for us. If you want to sell your house contact Jess!

Jessica was so wonderful to work with! She was always available and I really admire her work ethic. She was patient with me and showed me lots of options. She was there to answer all my questions. I loved working with her! I would recommend her 10/10!

Jessica is hands down the most professional and responsive agent I have ever dealt with. Not only did she go above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable, but she took on concerns and stress and made us excited about the process of buying a home.
Nov 20, 2019
I cannot imagine a better realtor; we were in the best of hands 100% of the time. She went above and beyond consistently. She handles transactions with grace and competence, and the heavy emotional aspects with wisdom and compassion. She thinks outside the box--a born problem solver. She is down-to-earth and amiable. Look no further. You just found the best.

English Teacher/New Homeowner
We are so lucky to have found Jessica! At the start of the homebuying process, we were confused about a lot of things, but especially wondering, what's the point of a realtor? As first-time homebuyers, there was so much we could not have known! We met Jessica just after we found our dream home, so I wasn't sure exactly how much we would need her help. Boy was I wrong! We quickly discovered how important a knowledgeable, responsive, and professional realtor is. Jessica is, simply put, incredible at her job. She is calm, welcoming, and clear about the homebuying process. As first-time homebuyer, I appreciate her ability to explain things to us thoughtfully and put us at ease. As a parent, I appreciate her patience with our children, as they ran circles around us during meetings. As an English teacher, I appreciate her ability to communicate clearly in person and in writing. Her attention to detail and clear understanding of the process made it clear to us that we were in good hands throughout this entire journey. I could not recommend her more highly. Thank you, Jessica!

Jessica is amazing. She helped us to buy our first home. Jessica was very helpful during this process and she is very patient. She does her best in her abilities to make you feel comfortable during the process, no pressure and she is honest.
Highly recommended and will work with her again hopefully soon.

I had the pleasure of serving with Jessica in the Air Force. Her fantastic and friendly attitude, her commitment to excellence, and her diligence made her a person that everyone wanted to be around. My wife and I tried for two years to sell our house with two other agents and had no luck. I called Jessica, and even though she'd moved away, she helped find and vet an agent who was able to quickly sell our house for full price. Jessica continued to check in with us and make sure that we were having a good experience even though it wasn't her deal. I will absolutely call her first next time I need to buy or sell!

Absolutely excellent in every aspect of a well orchestrated sale. Jessica newly defines the term “above and beyond”. Her authentic and empathetic personality coupled with her professionalism and incredible expertise provided the best possible representation for me as a seller. I have been buying and selling real estate for many years, and Jess is the best agent I have ever worked with! Where another agent claimed I would never sell my home for a high value amount due to a narrow driveway and some other issues, Jessica easily staged the home and expertly marketed the property for an immediate sale with multiple bids far over the price I had hoped. She is like a super agent. As a mom she understands the needs of children and family and deeply respects your time and priorities. If you need a real estate advocate not just an agent, Jessica is the perfect choice.

My husband and I met Jessica at a home buying workshop last year. We kept her contact info until we got serious about buying a home. This was our first home purchase and Jessica was always available to answer any question we had, and we had A LOT of basic questions! She is incredibly patient and is an excellent communicator. We never were unsure about next steps or what our responsibility was. She checked in frequently to make sure we were feeling comfortable. She set very clear timelines and always made sure we completely understood the process before we took the next step. We were able to close in 16 days and it was only possible because she and her team are incredibly organized and work together like a well oiled machine. She makes good use of technology and communication through email and text was easy while I had business travel throughout the process. She even had our home inspector record a voice memo that was sent to my husband who wasn't able to be there. Another thing that was important to me is that her written communication to the listing agent was always so clear and crisp --proper use of grammar, spelling and formatting. I know it seems like little things, but it's these details that stood out to me, especially when I noticed errors in the listing agent email. I thought that she represented us very well. Looking back at it I'm amazed at all of the things we accomplished in that short time. I'm so grateful that we chose to work with Jessica. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

Jessica was fantastic throughout our home buying experience. She was very attentive and action orientated which is very important for the very competitive Bay Area market.

She always gave us her professional opinions when it came to offering on homes, and she never pushed us to offer more than what we were comfortable with. We ended up missing on our first two offers, but it ended up working out for the best because we are absolutely in love with our home.

Escrow went seamlessly as she lined up all the necessary inspections and appointments within a really small 5-day window. I’d absolutely recommend anyone working with Jessica and team, she made our first time home buying experience much less stressful.

When we started working with Jessica, I was really particular about what I was looking for - so much so, I wasn't sure that there would be a house that met my needs available in the market. Jessica helped us look, and we found a neighborhood with promise. Then when a house came on the market and we decided we wanted to move, she helped us put in a compelling offer, getting a great house at a great price. We had some minor adventures in the final stages of the negotiations, and Jessica was a great partner throughout the entire process. I have immense confidence in her abilities and I believe she'd be an excellent agent and partner for a broad range of potential buyers, including both first-time buyers and non-first-time buyers (like my family).

Jessica was fantastic throughout the entire process. She spent several hours with us before we even began looking at houses to ensure we fully understood all the intricacies of purchasing a home along with all the risks etc. Once we began looking she was incredibly responsive regardless of the time of day, including the weekends.

When we decided on our perfect home she worked diligently to craft an offer that was both enticing enough to win against numerous buyers while also staying within our comfort zone. We expected a stressful and confusing experience as it was our first time, but she made it effortless.

I would have no problem recommending her to any of our friends and family and we will definitely use her again! She was wonderful.

Jessica is the best!!! She was referred to us by a friend because of the wonderful work she did for his family and we are so happy we met her. She helped my husband and I with our first home purchase. She was there with us every step of the way - going to all the open houses with us, scheduling viewings according to our schedule, answering allll our questions, and was in constant contact. She returned every phone call, email, and text ASAP! Jessica is super reliable, trustworthy, and knows her stuff. We are so glad to have worked with her and would recommend her to everyone.

Jessica is a wonderful and honest realtor. She truly is a gem. She took the time to educate me the basics and provide me with details information to get the process started. Throughout the entire process from looking at homes to closing, the process was effortless and exciting. I’m a first time buyer and would definitely recommend Jessica and will work again with her!
