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.
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 Self is, hands down, the best REALTOR® anyone could ask for. She is trustworthy, full of integrity, reliable, hardworking, sincere, and professional. She went over and beyond to help us find our dream home. She would drop what she was doing to help us, show us homes, or answer any questions we may have. She was not only our REALTOR® but became a sweet friend to my family. Putting her clients first is an understatement. My husband and I felt in good hands throughout the entire home buying process - she made it as smooth and painless as possible for us. I will forever refer my friends and family to Jessica. The best decision you could make is to make her your REALTOR® - you will not be disappointed. We love Jessica!
Rather buying or selling I cannot recommend Jess highly enough! We've bought and sold a few homes and Jess was far above and beyond even other excellent realtors we've done business with. She really knows her stuff and is a great negotiator. She really helped us find what we wanted and looked out for us every step of the way. She also helped us sell our house for even more than we expected and was available at any time to help us. I will be recommending her to everyone I know and if we ever need a real estate agent again she'll be my top pick!
Jess handled our sale and purchase. She did an amazing job keeping ahead of all of the details. Jess gave us all our options, aggressively negotiated when necessary and always kept us in the loop. She is fair, honest and works ridiculous hours to make sure her clients are taken care of. So grateful we reached out to her.
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.
