Jacque Johnston
United Country Real Estate - Staples Property Group
About Jacque

Since 2010 Real Estate has been my passion! My goal is to provide each and everyone of my customers the service and attention they deserve! My BBA in Business Management with emphasis in Marketing led me to a highly diverse career. The positions I have held required exceptional people skills providing the best customer service possible, marketing and time management. My experience working for a Real Estate attorney as a legal assistant as well as an Escrow Officer provided me great knowledge and understanding of Real Estate contracts, Title Insurance, Title Issues etc. I was able to take this knowledge with me when I became a REALTOR which has truly been a benefit to myself as well as my customers. The greatest compliment I can receive is the referral of your friends, family and business associates. Thank you for your trust! Specialties: Residential, Farm/Ranch, Land/Acreage, Commercial or Investment Property

About Dana

I am a native East Texan and a 1982 graduate of the University of Texas at Tyler with a BBA in Accounting. My husband of 43 years, Cecil, and I have three grown sons. I was led to the field of East Texas real estate while searching for my own lake property for my family to enjoy (& as enticement for our children to visit!!). In 2005, I began selling real estate in the Flint area-later opening Lake Palestine Real Estate, Incorporated in March 2007. Lake Palestine Real Estate, Inc quickly became one of the Top Ten United Country offices in the nation; recognized for this achievement in 2009 & again in consecutive years of 2013 - 2018. Having consistently been a Multi-Million Dollar Producer since 2006-matching people to a property that fits their dream is what I enjoy most. I've been honored to receive recognition as a DFW Five Star Real Estate Agent since 2011 and have previously been voted as Best Real Estate Agent-Palestine Herald Press Reader's Choice. For 14 years, I also served on the Palestine Independent School District Board of Trustees.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Palestine?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Palestine?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Palestine, TX.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Palestine?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
