About Jackie

My service is based on quality and not volume! I tailor my approach to my client’s needs, working within parameters I know will deliver a successful outcome. Being available, staying current on market trends, maintaining a stellar reputation and excellent relationships within the real estate community are key to your success. My team help provide crucial behind the scenes support, but I personally am your primary contact and believe that clear and consistent communication is critical to client satisfaction and nothing falling between the cracks! I bring to the table excellent project management and negotiation skills, up to date knowledge of the inventory and market dynamics, A+ service providers and technology plus a valuable attention to detail. Real estate transactions are complex; full of emotional rollercoasters and potential pitfalls. My role is to advise you throughout the process, help you avoid making inappropriate or risky decisions and guide you in either purchasing or selling with the best possible terms! I aim to do this while making the process as straightforward, enjoyable and stress free as possible. Client trust and true job satisfaction are the most important piece of my business. I continue to be a resource and offer service well after a transaction is completed, and clients who refer their friends and colleagues make my day!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Piedmont?
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.

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.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Piedmont?
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.
