Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Savannah, GA.
Jessica was recommended by a mutual friend. My wife and I were relocating to Savannah from out of state. Although we had lived there previously, we relied on Jessica's familiarity with various neighborhoods and proximity to schools and work to validate our decisions on where exactly to settle. After some discussion about budget and type of home, Jessica put together a portfolio of about a dozen or so homes she thought would be a good fit for us. We started the process with her in person, but ended up putting our offers in and completing the home purchase long-distance. Jessica was extremely responsive and helped us overcome so many of the hurdles we faced, from recommending a good local home inspector, closing lawyer, and independent lending agent, to advising on negotiation and things to be aware of with historic homes in general. We ended up getting our home below asking price. Overall, it is not particularly easy to undertake a home purchase from long-distance, but Jessica proved invaluable in every step of the process. I highly recommend her.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Savannah, GA.
Jessica has been a good friend to me through the years (2008 – 2014) in all of our real estate activities. She has assisted me with more than one difficult real estate transaction or transactions. She has always responded to me when I have had questions. Jessica put in a lot of work for me and made helpful recommendations, which were purely for my planning purposes and never netted her a dime. She always has a positive attitude and in a truly genuine way. She is smart, energetic, knowledgeable, organized, efficient, trustworthy and personable. She is also persistent and can be counted on to look out for your best interests. So, yes, I would very highly recommend Jessica for assistance with any real estate needs someone might have.
We have purchased both residential and commercial real estate in many locations in the United States. Jessica is the only realtor we have chosen to continue to use exclusively!. She is dynamic, personable and, most importantly, savvy in all aspects of buying and selling real estate. You will find no one more in tune with the community and who will insure your best interests are served.
Having worked with many R.E. agents, we were immediately impressed with Jessica's honesty and grasp of facts and figures about the dwellings we viewed with her. Her demeanor was always pleasant and we consider her our new friend. I recommend her to any of our friends property hunting in Savannah.
Sold a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in Savannah, GA.
Jessica Kelly is the best Realtor I have had the experience to deal with in the 30+ years as a real estate investor. She is communicative, reliable, goes to bat for her listings, and is a true professional. She deserves mention in my book "So You Want To Be A Landlord: Tales From The Crypt"....
We found Jessica Kelly to be a true professional in every sense of the word. She was responsive to our questions and followed through on all of our requests. We have no hesitation recommending Jessica to anyone looking for a top-notch realtor.
Jessica Kelly is an excellent realtor. She was thorough, very knowledgeable and made our job easy throughout the entire process of selling our condo. She went above and beyond to help us keep our property in good condition and find the right buyer. She was easy to communicate with from a distance and always available to answer our questions. I would recommend Jessica to anyone in need of a smart and savvy realtor in the Savannah area.
Sold a Vacant Land home in 2013 for approximately $75K in Savannah, GA.
Jessica Kelly has sold two large properties for me in the last year, one property a 4 bedroom brick historic home and the other a jewel of a commercial property on Broughton st. She was so easy to deal with, great communicator, calm and knowledgable. I would highly recommend her and will be doing all of my real estate needs through her.
We connected with Jessica to explore purchasing property in Savannah. We discussed our requirements of finding property in the historic district. Jessica showed us several home and we discussed the plus and minus as she attempted to understand what we were looking for.
Jessica took up the negotiation of our offer. After using Zillow for our offer, she was able to hold that price with a difficult seller. She did all the negotiation.
Our offer was 8% less than the asking price and 4% lower than the Zillow recommendation in a market that was heating up.
She suggested that we do a mold inspection that also produced remediation by the seller. Doing an offer from a far she had documents on the web and made the process simple.
What is most impressive is her understanding of me and my wife, who we were and where we could fit, which is important when purchasing a condominium.
Jessica is in the business for the long term. She went beyond our expectation with helping asking sure we had information that helped our decision.

if you are buying or selling, Jessica will take great care of you. from our first meeting, it was apparent she was the consummate professional. knowledgable, skillful and an impreccable guide through the whole process. she followed up on everything and left no detail to chance. along with all of that, what a great personality:) not only did I have the best real estate agent, but felt like I gained a friend! due to her keen knowledge about the real estate market, she priced my house exactly where it should be. as they say the proof is in the pudding...house went on the market on a Monday and we had a contract that Friday and closed a month later!! that is hard to argue with :)
