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.
There are many different reasons to embark on a new real estate adventure. Whether you have experienced a significant life change, want to build your portfolio, get back to a simpler life, need more space, are ready to build your dream home, or have heard the Great Smoky Mountains calling to you... No matter your "why," I am honored to be a part of finding HOME for you.
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.
In a market such as this, 20/21 changed the industry. One thing you can't expedite is experience. If you don't care about buying your dream home, or a home with a dream. Or selling your home that you raised your kiddos in, a house that has memories, then go with someone who doesn't care about you. But if you're looking for a realtor that has passion not only about the housing market, but passion about YOU, your family, your dreams, then Jessica Self will meet you there.
Jessica Self is my real estate HERO. She is full integrity, honesty, and loyalty. She always fights for her clients and truly listens to their wants and needs. She is fair and trustworthy and that is something we really valued. Jess has the perfect balance of being a friend and being a professional. Her knowledge of the area is vast and she always made the safety of our family (with 2 small kids) a top priority. We have used her more than once for buying and selling a home and we will never use someone else!
If I could give this review for Jess more than 5 stars, she deserves 1000. She is kind, patient, full of integrity, trust worthy, puts her clients first and loves the Lord. She’s one of the best people I know and is so knowledgeable about the business - whether you’re buying or selling. I completely believe it was the best decision that could’ve been made to work with Jess and I would do it over again a million times. You are the absolute best Jess, and if you’re looking for a great realtor to support and guide you through the process look no further!
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 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.
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 a true professional in every sense of the word. Quick to respond, working diligently to move the transaction to closing. I would love to work with Jessica again.
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!
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.
