As a child living in an inner-city of New Jersey, I used to sit outside of our row home, surrounded by concrete, and pray that one day I would have a house with a tree and a yard. Years ago, Tennessee became HOME and I am in awe every day. I have been blessed with a home that is in a yard on it's own, and it has more than the one tree I prayed for. So many people have the same prayers and dreams, and my passion is to help them find their place here too.

Whether you are buying or selling, I am here to represent you well and guide you through your journey. Your home and real estate decisions are an investment and we need to approach each decision based on how we can make your investment work for you; whether that is by ending the renting cycle, building your investment portfolio, or freeing yourself up financially to explore other adventures. Integrity and loyalty to my clients are of the upmost importance and are without a doubt, something that each and every client deserves and will receive.
Jess was so patient with me and my family during this crazy housing market. we were so pessimistic and she told us to remain optimistic that the one will come to us oh, she was right. she worked day and night to make sure that we got the viewings. she worked day and night to make sure paperwork got to us so that we weren't last on the list of offers. she worked with the Sellers realtor closely to make sure that everything that we needed to move in was perfect. I 11 out of 10 recommend her every time to find your dream home and get in it.
As a mortgage lender, having a great real estate partner is crucial to the process. Without Jessica's hard work and determination I don't think my clients would have gotten such a great house at such a great price. She is truly first class and the top option for an agent in East Tennessee!
We had the pleasure of working with Jessica on a recent “weekend land hunt” in the Knoxville area. I don’t know where to begin... Without knowing us from Adam, Jessica set aside her weekend to show us several properties in the area. Let me tell you something, she drove with us from 10:30am thru 3:00pm, devoting her entire Saturday to a couple that had no idea what they were doing. After a frustrating day of seeing properties completely different than described, Jess suggested we drive around the area more. Said we should try to get a feel for the towns, eat meals at local restaurants (not chains) and ask what they love about their town, and what they’re not so fond of.
Thanks to Jessica, we did just that, and found our target area in Tennessee. She never pushed us to make an offer on a property. She didn’t try to sway us in any direction. Only helped us to understand what each property would need in order to make it our dream home. We’re still property hunting and Jessica is still available to answer our questions HONESTLY. After spending a weekend in a sea of real estate untruths, Jessica is a beacon. I can’t sing her praises enough.
In a sea of realtors, it can feel difficult to find the right fit. In my experience Jessica was HIGHLY Professional, Legal, Ethical and Knowledgeable.
Through my buying process when I called with a question I was responded to immediately, and if not, I was always given an expectation for a returned call, right away.
Being of high integrity, her recommendations for a mortgage lender and title company also fell suit.
I never felt pressured and I was always given clear pros and cons to each potential properly and had her full support regardless of price.
She is a master negotiator and I felt like I truly had an advocate, and better, a friend in my corner.
Thank you, Jess. My family sincerely values your hard work for us.
Jess is the one and only realtor I would honestly send anyone to! She took notes, answered all questions and didn't make us waste our time. She made sure everything that happened was in our best interest. She is a God-send!!!
We recently sold our home of 22 years. That’s a long time between real estate transactions. We were nervous, we were apprehensive, and we were concerned that our transaction be above board and without question looking back. I can say with confidence that Jess Self educated us, calmed our worries and kept her integrity above all throughout this process. The transaction was almost effortless on our side and we certainly sold at a higher price than we had expected. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, reliable, competent and moral person to guide you through one of the largest financial decisions of your life - then Jess Self is your lady!
Jessica is very personable, knowledgeable, and has the utmost integrity! She made the process as easy as possible!
Jess helped my nephew and his wife buy their first home!! She walked with them and helped them every step of the way! Jess is so thoughtful and caring and I am so glad she was there with them through this process! I would 100% recommend her for your home buying and/or selling needs!
Went above and beyond as our realtor! She works hard and with integrity!!!
Know that when it comes to pricing, things like memories can never be reflected in the price, but will always be cherished. When you call me to meet about listing your home, we will look at several factors about your home and will also look at comparable properties. Our goal is to have your home priced well for you and to also draw interest from potential buyers.
The housing market is very fluid. And, it may be a seller's market at one price point and an equal or buyer's market in another price point, all within the same zip code. There are many factors that play a part in what determines the current trend. To find out what's happening today in your area, contact me for the latest information. Knowledge is power.
The steps along the way are very different for buyers than they are for sellers and vice versa. However, both begin with sitting down and discovering what your needs and wants are, and then lay out the plan on how we are going to move forward. My ultimate goal is to make your Real Estate experience, a great one.
