Connected.  Jessica's vast experience allows her to build a strong network of professionals including appraisers, attorneys, contractors, builders, designers, inspectors, mortgage companies, private lenders, stagers, structural engineers, trades people, & more… all professionals she knows & trusts.  These relationships allow Jessica to get questions answered and issues resolved quickly which is vital to keeping any real estate transaction moving forward successfully.


Communication.  Rare ability to listen before speaking and sincerely relate to many different personalities & situations.  Jessica formulates a plan WITH her clients rather than talking AT them.  She offers well-outlined options so she & the client may choose the best strategy together allowing the client to remain an engaged decision-maker throughout the process.  


Market Knowledge.  A Louisville native w/a vast personal sales history & even more renovation and investment know-how.  Neighborhood to Neighborhood. Street to Street. Jessica can offer accurate, solid advice that only nitty gritty experience can produce.  


Unmatched Loyalty.  This girl will promote your best interest with complete devotion.  Without fail, she is honest, thoughtful, knowledgeable, constructively supportive, never rash, a perfect devil's advocate, totally candid, extremely well-connected, & 100% down-to-earth.  She never thinks about the money or bases any advice on what she has to gain or lose from a deal.  


Problem-Solving.  Before you've finished asking your question about that crack in the foundation, she's already snapped a pic & sent it to her inspector for advice.  A successful real estate transaction is nothing but problem solving.  And you must do it quickly.  Confident, but thoughtful decision-making balanced with a deep understanding of the 'flow' of real estate make Jessica an irreplaceable asset. 


Negotiation.  Having negotiated through 100s of contracts, Jessica understands buyers' motivations, sellers' motivations, how scenarios 'tend' to go, all sides to a multiple offer situation, negotiating with bank owned vs short sales, and can articulate all of the above quickly and decisively to get you to your goal.  Even knowing who the agent is on the other side, their personality, their negotiating style, how many deals they typically close a year, and knowing how to effectively apply that information can be a deal-maker or breaker! 


Marketing.  Just like you hiring Jessica, she hires professionals as part of your listing team.  A photographer to take her photos, a stager to prepare your home, an appraiser to verify square footage... She manages contractors, & negotiates estimates when needed.. and it's all complimentary because that's what it takes to sell a house in today's market for the most amount of money in the least amount of time.  


Legal. When  in doubt, ask a real estate attorney!  Jessica's connections with top real estate litigators, title attorneys, & mediators including those real estate attorneys who write all the Realtor approved contract forms allow her to get quick answers, contracts reviewed, and problems solved and without high attorney's fees! It's all complimentary when hiring Jessica.


Renovation & Design.  Jessica loves to buy, renovate, & sell properties and she loves helping clients do the same.  She will guide you every step of the way with what property to buy, how much to spend, what renovations to complete, her contractor connections, what to sell it for, & then make it all happen. This skill comes in handy during any of her real estate transactions. Since this knowledge is at her fingertips, it allows buyers and sellers to get specific answers to questions that help make their decision.

  • Amy P

    Jessica is the absolute BEST! She worked very hard to find me homes within my budget. We looked at so many homes and she was always very willing to show me any house whenever I had time to go. Once she helped me find my dream home, being a first time home buyer, I had a TON of questions. Jessica never got frustrated with me or my questions and answered them thoroughly and made sure I understood everything which was very comforting. When it came to choosing a mortgage broker, she recommended Century Mortgage and went with me each time I had to meet with them and was always there to hold my hand through it all. I highly recommend Jessica to first time home buyers or even if it isn't your first house - she knows what she is doing, knows the market and knows how to treat people. Best experience ever and if I ever sell my little dream home, I will absolutely use her again.
