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 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 support you, represent you, and guide you through your journey. Your home and real estate ventures are your investment and should be treated as such. For me, Integrity and Loyalty to my clients are of the upmost importance and are without a doubt, something that each and every client deserves.
When my wife asked me to start looking at new houses, I was annoyed. I absolutely despise dealing with real estate and the headaches that typically come from it. I decided that I needed a Realtor that would have our best interest in mind regardless of what the result was for them personally. With that in mind, we decided to contact a Realtor and see what happened. Jess immediately got rid of any inclination that there would be a headache. She proactively worked to find us a place to call our home and raise our kids. Naturally, there were bumps in the road because real estate is well, real estate. However, Jessica tackled every possible obstacle and did so with integrity and passion for her clients. If you are in the market to buy, build, or sell, I would highly recommend contacting Jess! She is a realtor that has her clients' well-being in the forefront of her mind, and as a result, we are closing on our house early 2019!
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!
Jessica helped us sell our house in record time (2 months)! It had previously been listed with another realtor for more than 2 years and we never even got an offer and communications were nonexistent. With Jessica, she kept us informed at all times, we never had to wonder what was happening. She even came over and took care of our pup when an unexpected showing popped up. I honestly can't say enough GOOD things about Jess and how she treated us as her clients.
If you are looking for a Realtor in the Eastern Tennessee area, I highly recommend Jessica Self. We recently relocated from Florida and she helped us find our new home in Seymour, TN. She was extremely knowledgeable and answered all questions, was extremely flexible with her schedule during our visits to TN, ensured we received a very thorough home inspection from a reputable professional, was very responsive to calls, emails and texts, and most importantly; was very friendly and respectful...

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 an ever-changing cycle. And, it might 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.
