Jackie was so patient with us during the home buying process, and was so knowledgeable. We really felt like she was invested in finding us the right home, and was so great about working around our crazy work schedule. By the time we found the right place, she seemed like an old friend. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.

I was so fortunate to have Jackie as my Realtor..we had a contract on my house in 24 hours for a very good price..she not only puts it on the market with a strategy to sell, she follows through all the step it takes to assure it won’t fall apart,this is just as important ….She does her homework on the appraisals which is key to secure the Loan for the buyers.I know in my heart I wouldn’t have sold my home this fast and for the money if it wasn’t for Jackie.. She makes things so much easier for such a stressful time in your life.

Jackie helped my boyfriend and I purchase our first house back in 2013 & for my grandmother in 2015

We looked at so many houses and Jackie was always available when we needed her and we never felt rushed. We didn’t have a big budget and she never tried to push us to spend more. She was really good at spotting things that my boyfriend and I wouldn’t have noticed. She also was great at getting my boyfriend involved in as much of the inspection process as he could. We loved working with her and she made sure that we were 100% satisfied at the end of the process. I then reached out to her to help my grandmother purchase a condo and she again went above and beyond. She was extremely patient and helpful in explaining the whole process to my grandma since she had no idea how any of it worked, sha had been in the same house for nearly 60 years. I would recommend Jackie to anyone, she was great to work with and I’m sure if I move again we’ll be calling her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Lake In The Hills, IL.

When my husband and I decided we needed to buy a house in the Northwest suburbs, one of the aspects of house hunting we dreaded the most was finding a good realtor. Past experience suggested many seemed so intent on the sale it was difficult to get all the information we needed to make a sound decision–much less navigate through the complexities of moving from out of state.

Jackie redefined our expectations of what a realtor could and should do. Professional and personable from day one, Jackie asked all the right questions to better understand our needs, resources and lifestyle. She did an amazing job securing the information we requested, drawing on an impressive network of professionals to assist us, from the home inspector to the attorney.

Jackie’s expertise was visible in the astute advice and guidance she provided us as we negotiated a sale of some complexity. She kept us closely in the loop during the negotiations between brokers and attorneys, always very responsive to our questions and concerns. Overall, we credit Jackie with giving us a remarkably smooth home purchasing experience and would highly recommend her to anyone. She is a knowledgeable and trustworthy escort through what most of us find an arduous process–and is truly a pleasure to work with.

Bought a home in 2014.

Jackie was always friendly and professional. It took us several years to find the right home, but she was very patient and never made us feel like we were wasting her time.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Lake In The Hills, IL.

Not only did Jackie sell my house, she also helped me buy the house of my dreams! Jackie was always available when there was a house I wanted to look at—even at last minute. All my questions were answered, and she took the time to explain all aspects of selling/buying a home. I always had more questions, and called her so often!! She was always very prompt with return calls/txt messages. She often rearranged her schedule to accommodate my schedule. If you are in need of a realtor, Jackie Reed is the best!!

Bought a home in 2014.

Jackie was extremely responsive to calls, e-mails, and texts and notified me of her availability throughout the week. Along with that, she was flexible and accommodating to our limited scheduling availability.

Jackie was very detailed and thorough and took the time to discuss the purchasing process as we were first time homebuyers, which helped during the negotiations.

We spent around four months looking for a new home and not once was Jackie impatient; she genuinely wanted us to find our ideal home. On top of that, Jackie is just a good person to work with on a personal level: she is very easy to talk to, she is receiptive to questions, and is very open.

Jackie had a strong knowledge of the market and was crucial in helping us identify the right home at the right price. From start to finish the purchase process was seemless and we have Jackie to thank. I would strongly recommend Jackie when purchasing a home.

Jackie was great! She was so accommodating to our schedule and situation. We had to take a newborn with us all the time. So between the sleeping/feeding she was so flexible! We also appreciated that she fought for us on the negotiations and was on our side! She is professional but very comfortable to work with.

Sold a home in 2013.

We found Jackie because of her wide breadth of knowledge in the area we were shopping, as well as in short sale and foreclosure dealings. She was always very responsive and helpful in guiding us through this new community. Her positive and realistic advice landed us in the perfect home. She was incredibly patient with the number of homes that we wished to see. We also used her to list our other property for sale and were impressed with the professional services used to get the best dollar for our home. Jackie is a rare gem in that she is incredibly generous. Her commitments to clients and community are well worth noting. She stands apart.

Jackie Reed was our realtor for 2 different occasions. She is by far the best We have ever had. She is always available to answer questions, and has the patience to make sure her clients are well informed throughout the process.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Wauconda, IL.

Jackie helped my husband and I find our first home. We could not be happier with the process. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market and all of the areas we were looking in. This was essential in getting us a great price for our home. Jackie never minded when we needed to widen our search or show us a house twice and never rushed us to put in an offer. Jackie was able to point out important details to homes that were positive features or concerns. She walked us through the process which we were new to and answered all of our questions. Her recommendations for the real estate attorney and mortgage lender were also excellent. It is obvious she is one of the best in her field and is well respected. We can’t thank Jackie enough for helping my husband and I find our dream home!

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Crystal Lake, IL.

Jackie has excellent knowledge of the local market; she did extensive research of the homes around our neighborhood when we first considered selling before listing our home for rent. She knows the rental market and when one should consider renting a property, in addition to the option of selling.

Jackie was extremely thorough with all of the documentation process. She walked us through the details of all the paperwork and what we would have to do to prepare our home for renting. She explained how home showings would be scheduled with other realtors when prospective renters wanted to see the property.

Jackie was very responsive. She immediately answered all phone calls and emails and addressed all the concerns we had in those communications. She is very focused on her customer base and tending to their needs.

Jackie was super excellent in her negotiation skills in understanding the market, making honest property recommendations, yet still working hard for her client in getting the most at the final signing. Overall, we truly enjoyed working with Jackie and would recommend her to anyone looking for a Real Estate Agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Hoffman Estates, IL.

Due to some personal reasons I had to sell my house ASAP. I met with a whole bunch of agents and ended up hiring Jackie. I worked with Jackie and the first day, first showing I had an offer. There were some issues that had to be taken care off before the closing and Jackie helped me tremendously throughout the process. She even helped me find a good closing attorney. She went over and beyond and helped me sell the house at a great price and in a very short time. I don’t think I would have been able to sell the house this soon and at the price I got without her help. She is an amazing agent and I would very strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent. I had an awesome experience working with her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Streamwood, IL.

My husband and I are so happy we chose Jackie Reed to help us in renting our townhouse and finding our perfect dream home. As home owners, her advice and suggestions to spruce up our townhouse in order to attract renters was invaluable. Within a month we had two applications from people who wanted to rent it! As home buyers we received regular listings emailed to us with the specifications we were looking for in a house. After a few showings we found our dream home and Jackie acted fast in negotiating and getting us the best deal. We are confident in her abilities as a realtor and we know she has nothing but the best intentions for her clients. Now we are reaching our one year anniversary in our forever home and we couldn’t be happier. We highly recommend Jackie! She works tirelessly and always gets the job done!

Sold a home in 2012.

Jackie went above and beyond helping me with the sale of my aunt’s estate property. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the local market and how many viewings and offers we had. She made the process very easy for me and handled all the “bumps”. Basically all I had to do was decide, show up and sign. Jackie is one of the sweetest and most sincere people I have encountered, and I have recommended her to my friends who are selling their rental property.


01/20/2013
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Algonquin, IL.

We worked with Jackie Reed to purchase our 2nd home. She was prompt, reliable, and most of all honest. Not only is she great to work with, but she gave recommendations for other amazing professionals, she helped us pair up with a home buying dream team. We would (and have) recommend her services!

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Huntley, IL.

If you’re looking for someone who is honest, trustworthy and works for you, then Jackie is your agent.

She helped me rent a home I inherited in Del Webb after my father passing earlier this year. Everyone thinks their home should sell/rent for what they paid for it, but in reality that just isn’t true. Like most agents they give you comparable properties to match up with your own. Since Del Webb is so specific about their clientele, Jackie was able to find a renter for us within 2 weeks of the property being listed. Her response time is incredible!!!! Customer Service impecable!!! The greatest attribute Jackie possess is her honesty. She told me like it is, even if I didn’t agree. She knows her stuff. Not many people can stay in any one industry for 18 years, but she has managed to do so.

I thank Jackie for all her help. When my kids start looking for a house, Jackie will be our first call.

Jackie is a very likeable professional. We have enjoyed working with her, and have enjoyed the results. Our home was sold in 32 days for more then we thought possible. Simply put, if you really want to sell your home, call Jackie, and follow her advice.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $475K in Elk Grove Vlg, IL.

Jackie was the second real estate agent we worked with, and we are so happy we chose the make a change. Jackie was very responsive and extremely patient in helping us find our first home. We never felt pressure from her to purchase something we were not sure about despite having looked at several homes. Her insight on homes and ideas on how to make a home fit our needs were great advice. She was always available when you needed her and you never felt like just another client. She made it a point to get to know you. She was absolutely amazing, and we will definitely recommend her to family and friends!!

Sold a home in 2011.

We love Jackie!!! She got our house sold QUICK from Listing to Sold in 3 Months!!! She was such a blessing to us. We wanted to get our house sold as quickly as possible yet for a fair price. We interviewed several Real Estate Agents, and the minute we met Jackie we knew she was the one! She is so warm, friendly and LISTENS to what you need. She was very knowledgeable about the area and put together a market analysis to help us determine a fair price to list our home. She made many recommendations for us to consider. She told us if we do these things the house would sell quickly. We listed our house at the worst time possible – in the fall right before the Holidays, plus in this bad market we knew we needed to do what she said. Her Team is incredible too! She recommended Staging the Home. Her Stager Wendy was AMAZING!!! She modernized our antique style to appeal to the masses. We had to paint several rooms too… but paint is cheap. Next was the “atmosphere” of the house when Buyers walk through it. She told us to turn on ALL the lights, open the blinds and have soft music playing. It was a lot of work to pack up things and get the house ready to be listed, but we did it. When we got calls from her Office to schedule an appointment to see the house, the Ladies in the Office were always so nice, friendly and Professional! Whenever we had questions for Jackie, she was always prompt to answer the phone, reply back by calling, text message or email. She always made us feel important like we were her only clients. We knew she had lots of other listings and clients she was showing houses too. Yet she always made time for us! I can’t stop singing her praises! Jackie is truly the Best!!! Smart, Professional, Experienced, Knowledgeable, Kind, Caring, Compassionate, Enthusiastic! Would I recommend Jackie to a friend? Absolutely!!! I already did and will continue to do so. She really is terrific!!!

Sold a home in 2011.

What a phenomenal realtor! Jackie assisted us with the sale of our townhouse and the purchase of our new home. Jackie was incredibly quick to respond to any and all questions we had along the way (and we had ALOT).

She went above and beyond in so many ways. One example….our townhouse association had let the FHA approval of the community lapse. This was very detrimental to the sale of our townhouse as it eliminated many potential buyers that would be FHA loan borrowers. To attempt to remedy the situation, my husband and I planned to attend our association’s bi-monthly meeting to petition the association to complete the paperwork and renew the FHA approval. Giving up her own free time, Jackie attended this meeting with us to explain just what having FHA approval means and how much it lowers the values of all the houses in the community by not having it. She answered all the questions the attending residents and board members had and even offered to answer any questions later that may have come up during the meeting.

What we loved best about Jackie is, while we know she had other clients, she always made us feel like we were her only clients, and she never made us feel like we were any less of a client because the house we were selling may have been less expensive than some of her other houses. We are now getting settled into our new house, and while we may not be purchasing another house anytime soon, we will be recommending Jackie to everyone we can for their real estate needs.

Sold a home in 2011.

Kudos to our Realtor Ms. Jackie Reed. Our family needed to sell our home asap and of course sell at the best price. In this market we new this would be a uphill challenge. At our initial meeting we listened to Jackie and followed thru on all her professional suggestions, such as; scheduling her awesome Room Stager, Making sure we accommodate every showing, Always show our home in model like condition and many others. We listed in June of 2011 and closed in October 2011!!! And received fair market value for our home! On to the search for our new home. We sold our home so quickly that we needed to find our new perfect home ASAP. The clock was ticking…as many families can appreciate our time was precious so we chose 19 homes to view in ONE day! Jackie not only met the challenge but organized our route, confirmed and drove us to each and every showing….We fell in love with 2 homes that day…..decided on 1 and began the price war. Jackie handled this major task professionally and diligently always having our best interests in mind. Our 3rd offer was accepted and I am writing this welcomed review from my new home office. Jackie’s knowledge of the Real Estate Market was so comforting to my husband and I. I don’t know what the outcome would have been had we not hired Jackie as our Realtor….and I don’t want to even go there. Can’t thank Jackie enough for all her hard work. Should we need a Realtor in the future or know anyone that’s looking…we will definitely call upon Jackie Reed!

Sold a home in 2011.

Jackie was wonderful. She worked with us every step of the process. She had lots of ideas to help us sell our older home that was on a busy road and built in 1952. She sold it in just 3 months from it going up on the market.

We gave her a challenge when buying a home too. When the first short sale, we had put a offer on was not moving along, she was right there whenever we wanted to see another home. The house that we ended up buying had a price decrease on Sunday. We talked to her about it and saw it on Monday and started the negotiations the same night.

Everyone that we worked with thru Jackie was great! She is so hard working and cares so much that you get the house you love. I could never say enough positive things or thank Jackie enough.!!

Helped me rent a home.

My husband/family & I met Jackie about 2 years ago when we were simply looking for a rental property. She spent every weekend with us, showing us dozens of homes, for months on end; all the while being extremely patient with us! We didn’t have an exact town/city we wanted to live in, so she traveled to many, many different locations with us, showing us properties. When we finally found the home we wanted to rent, she negotiated a price that we could afford; since the asking price for the rental was more than we wanted to pay. We are now, 2 years later, starting to house hunt for homes to purchase and we wouldn’t have even considered working with anyone but Jackie Reed! We know that she will continue our search with us and we know from experience, that she has our best interests in mind. She takes into complete consideration as to what we are looking for in a home, and we feel that she goes above & beyond to make sure we are getting exactly what we want!

I’ve used Jackie for five real estate transactions. She would get my highest recommendation. Her knowledge of the broad geographical area speaks to her product knowledge. Our process was for her to understand my specific requirements and pricing parameters and she would come back with a thoughtful listing of properties with some specific recommendations. I’ve found Jackie to be a tireless worker and an excellent negotiatator in my behalf. Bottom line is she is thoroughly knowledgable, shows endless energy and loyalty to her clients, and will always act in my best interests. She had become my trusted advisor with respect to real estate in the NW suburbs.

Jackie is very professional and courteous.

Jackie is also very aquainted with so many geographic areas and because of that she very successful with finding her clients the ideal home in an area that meets their needs. Unlike other agents I have had experience with, Jackie listens and truly cares about her clients. She goes out of her way to meet their needs.

I have recommended and continue to recommend Jackie to friends and family who are looking to buy or sell their homes.

Jackie took the time to listen to what we really wanted in a house and was very patient as we looked at about 30 houses before finding the one that was perfect for us!! The only sad thing is that she found us our forever home and we probably won’t have a chance to work with her again for several years. In Jackie, we not only found our forever real estate agent, but I also found a friend. I would highly recommend Jackie and her team to anyone and everyone trying to negotiate this tough market!!
