Bought a home in 2014.

For someone who was a first time buyer, and had no knowledge about real estate, Jessie was a godsend. Her knowledge and understanding of the overall business, of the local Hyde Park market, of the process of buying and selling a home, and of the way buyers and sellers think, feel, and make decisions is masterful. She is also very hardworking and caring. Right from the beginning, it was obvious to us that we were getting exceptional service from an expert agent. But what was perhaps most striking is that Jessie is genuinely passionate about real estate.  More Less

Bought a home in 2013.

Working with Jessie was a wonderful experience. She showed me a few rental properties but I ended up purchasing a property that she was involved in selling. The entire process was transparent. I felt completely informed about the whole situation. I naturally trusted her advice and experience. She was always available and answered all of my questions in detail in a way that I could understand, being a first time home buyer. She supported us for the entire process. She has been available to us even after the purchase of the home, as a few things have surfaced. This is no way required but she is just that kind of person. She made sure that everything has been taken care or promptly and with good quality. I would highly recommend working with her if given the opportunity.  More Less

Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Kenwood, Chicago, IL.

We met Jessie when she took us to look at condos when we were deciding whether or not we should move to Chicago for a job. She was patient with us as we looked for the right house for us for over two years! She knowledgeably let us through the process of buying our first house. When we made an offer on a short-sale that was too low, she told us what she expected the selling price to be. We decided not to up our offer, but she was exactly right - she knows the market!

Jessie is knowledgeable and professional. We never felt pressured, but she also told us her opinions frankly and openly.
