Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in North Tonawanda, NY.
Very professional, organized, accommodating, knowledgeable, friendly, and always available to answer any questions. This is the second time using Jessica's services, and she met my needs fully each time. I highly recommend using her services to either buy or sell a home, since she successfully assisted me in doing both.
Jess is a great real estate agent. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive. Helped us find the perfect house and negotiate a fair price as well as to sell our old house putting together a great web listing.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Amherst, NY.
Jess was extremely helpful starting from our first meeting through closing on our new home. She has excellent knowledge of the entire home buying process. She helped us identify they type of home that we were most interested in and found dozens of candidate houses. She arranged showings of all homes we were interested in and was very flexible in meeting our availability for showings. A great professional to guide you through purchasing a home.
We used another real estate agent from Hunt in 2003 to purchase our first home, and the contrast between that individual/large firm and Jessica from Superlative Real Estate is substantial. Here's a quick compare and contrast based on my experience with typical RE agents over the years and Jess:
The typical RE agent will be your best friend! She will *love* whatever you say, laugh at your jokes, stroke your ego. She's probably a retired history teacher or bored housewife, has as much knowledge about real estate law as you might expect someone would after a few hours of a RE course. Her negotiation skills aren't great, but good news, they don't have to be! Because the typical RE agent doesn't really give a crap about getting you a good deal, she gives a crap about _closing_ the deal so she gets her gigantic commission check. The moment she gets that, *poof* she's gone. Careful with typical RE agent's recommendation of a home inspector; he knows as well as she does that if he finds anything that would jeopardize getting her commission or even making her do more work than usual, she'll find someone else to "inspect" houses for her clients, maybe someone that gloss over a potentially major issue.
Then there's Jess. She may not laugh at every one of your jokes; just the funny ones. Show her a picture of your kids and she probably won't get all Disney on you like other agents. She's your RE agent - her job is to find you a house in your price range that you will love, tell you as much as she can about it and then do everything in her power to get it for you for as little as the seller is willing to grudgingly give it up for. Want to feel like you have some power on your side? She's a frickin' lawyer. All the agents at Superlative are frickin' lawyers. When it's time to negotiate, I'll take the person professionally trained for years to argue in a court of law, thankyouverymuch. Her inspector found every minor thing that could be construed as an issue with the house which let me make the most informed decision I could. Every step of the way, I felt like her goal was to get us the right deal on the right house, regardless of how long it takes.
Oh, and she'll pay you. Unlike the unqualified twit whose face you'll see plastered all over signs advertising the typical large RE company, Superlative RE rebates a chunk of the commission back to you. Have some fun and ask any other typical RE agent if they would rebate some of that commission back to you.
I highly recommend Jessica and Superlative Real Estate.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Blasdell, NY.
As a very picky person Jessica helped in our search by being Honest, and looking out for what was best for our family, we looked at about 20 different houses, some good but were a little out of our price range, which she reminded us of. We also looked at a few that weren't so nice, but when we did find the one that fit us best, even she knew it, which was nice too. Very helpful in every way, I do Highly Recommend her and her company.
Jessica Hapeman was invaluable in selling my home. She was totally competent, trustworthy and responsive to my needs, especially in negotiating the sale. She did all the necessary marketing including posting beautifully taken photographs of my home on various websites, advertising, holding open houses, signage, and handling all the phone calls from interested parties. My home was sold rather quickly after considering several offers. During this time, she also helped me find the perfect new home and negotiated a fair price for the purchase. For both selling and buying real estate, I recommend using Jessica without any hesitation. She did a great job for me, and I was totally satisfied with the results I got.
Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Lockport, NY.
Jessica is without doubt the most knowledgeable, helpful and skilled agent I have ever worked with. If she doesn't know the answer (which is rare), she will find the answer! It has been and is a pleasure to work with her. I highly recommend her to anyone needing real estate services in Western New York.
