Kelly was a very professional and knowledgeable real estate agent (which is the most important) and a wonderful person! A real pleasure to communicate with. We will be recommending her to our friends.

Leslie was very timely in responding, contacting seller's agent, lawyers, etc. She was readily available for showings, inspection, etc. Overall, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING LESLIE.

Debra Bain Review

During the entire process of selling our home our expectations were exceeded. Jolene could not have done a better job.

Sandy MacMaster Review

I would highly recommend working with Jolene on either buying or selling a home. Jolene worked very closely with me and always communicated quickly.

Michael Murnane Review

Jolene stuck with our listing and got it sold in a very hard market. There was constant communication. We didn't live in the area while trying to sell the home and she provided the information needed to make us feel good about having a vacant house for sale. We appreciate her persistence and would recommend her...

Kathy Camilli Review

The home we were selling was in an estate. Jolene helped with suggestions on what we needed to do to get the most amount of money out of the property. We were out of town when the property closed but felt very confident that Jolene would and did handle all the required transactions. We would recommend Jolene to all our friends and family.

Todd & Stacey Carver Review

Jolene was our Realtor when we purchased our property. We found her knowledgeable and honest. The experience was so nice that we asked her to represent us when we sold the property. We were very happy working with Jolene on both transactions.

Daniel Selva Review

We recently bought a house with Jolene. It was our first experience buying a house, as foreign nationals, and in a city that we didn't know at all. Those are three factors that made everything more challenging for us. However, Jolene made the entire process of buying a house as easy as it could be for us. She helped us understand what the market is like, and was always flexible to work with our schedules. She was also honest to tell us when some things were really not necessary. Highly recommended. Review

Jolene is unfailing in her; Total professionalism, Punctuality and courtesy and patience. Willingness to listen and understand our wishes and concerns and to address both. All of the houses Jolene showed us were at or very close to our price-point. We particularly appreciated this – it demonstrates her attention to client service. As does her "light touch" with advice- she was able to articulate pros and cons without being overly assertive or diminishing our absolute control of the decision. We never felt pressured or hurried. Review

We've used a few realtors in our home buying and selling years, and Jolene is, by far, the best we've had. We worked with her for over 7 months to find our home and she never showed any signs of frustration or annoyance with us. She was available after hours, weekends, workday name it. She was determined to help us find what we wanted and got a really good feel for what we were looking for in a home. Her knowledge of the area was invaluable to us as we were relocating from another state. Honestly, we can't say enough great things about her and would recommend her to anyone looking to find a home in the Ithaca area.

Sandy MacMaster Review

The sale of this property would never had happened without Jolene. Her hard work and dedication were really appreciated.

Scott Jones Review

Jolene helped us work through the difficult process of purchasing our new home. She has great experience and knowledge to share. I would recommend Jolene to friends and family. Review

Jolene was a very excellent negotiator rescoring this competitively priced piece of land for us with the buyer/ buyer's agent. She was also very knowledgeable referring us to resource people for tests and assessments done prior to closing. We would definitely recommend Jolene to our friends and in fact, already have! Review

I have known Jolene for over 5 years. She helped us find our first house with great success. We have been looking for a larger piece of property off and on for the last 4 years and she has been more than willing to show us properties that we have been interested in. And we think we have finally found what we are looking for with Jolene's help. I would recommend Jolene to help you find what you’re looking for. Review

We have been working with Jolene for over 4 years, she sold 4 of our company's high-end houses, it’s a pleasure to work with her.

Mike Review

Jolene sold our lake home in under 2 weeks. She gets the job done. Review

We were so fortunate to have contacted Jolene when we were searching for a house in upstate NY. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, very experienced in all facets of the Real Estate process, and always answered our calls no matter what time it was. She is an asset to anyone who is looking to purchase a home. Jolene is a major reason why we are now living in the home of our dreams. Review

Jolene was very responsive by email and phone. She did not push us out of our price range. I was most impressed by the fact that she contacted agents of homes we were interested in but which had already gone under contract to ask that they let her know if their sales fell through - one did, and this was how we ended up with our new home!

Jolene is Social!
