Howard Hanna Review

“Jolene is a gem. From start to finish she helped us navigate both selling our home and purchasing a new one. We had some very set parameters and she worked hard to find us homes to look at within these parameters. She gave us good advice and honest answers when we had questions or concerns about the houses at which we looked. We always felt that Jolene had our best interests at heart. She gave us honest and incredibly helpful advice when preparing our house for sale. The house sold in a day! We would highly recommend Jolene when buying and/or selling your home.

“We worked with Kelly Skeval to sell our home. She was very professional and service oriented. Kelly made the process very smooth and was never pushy. She always had our best interest in mind. She sold our home within a matter of days! I don’t think we would’ve had the same result with anyone else. Kelly is an amazing realtor who will make selling or buying easy.”

“When we started to look at houses, I filled out a "request for information" on several houses I saw online. Leslie was the first and only realtor to reach back out to me. We worked with Leslie to find a house within a relatively short window of time this winter when the inventory was low. Leslie alerted us to a home that fit our needs as soon as it came on the market and we finalized the offer 10 days after it was listed. Leslie helped us through the process from start to finish. Leslie listened to what we were looking for and was very attentive to our needs. We were new to the area, so it was great to work with someone who knows the area well. We would highly recommend Leslie!">

“We listed out home with Jolene after neighbors recommended her. We were not disappointed. She is professional and keeps you informed about your progress. One thing I really appreciated, she never called at the last minute to show our home. We always had at least 24 hour notice to get the house ready to show. The house sold with just seven showings. I highly recommend Jolene to anyone listing their home or looking for a new home. She is the ultimate professional realtor!!!”

"We worked with Kelly Skeval and we are thankful for her assistance in making an otherwise stressful and overwhelming process easier. She would answer any and all questions quickly and efficiently. She would quick to respond. She helped me set up my house and ensure good and multiple showings. We sold our house is 10 days!!! She helped us on the buying end of things also, knowing our 'check list' and what houses would check off those boxes. We are excited to be moving into our next family home soon.">

"I cannot say enough about how Leslie helped me with the purchase of my first home. She guided me away from a home that was not suited for me as much as I wanted it. Leslie found the home that was right for me with all the amenities in the right area at the right price. I cannot say enough about her diligence and dedication in finding the right place for me. I would and will recommend her if you want to sell or purchase a home. I couldn't be happier with the service and attention to detail which she provided to me during and long after the closing. If you are looking to buy or sell a property I would recommend Leslie above anyone else.">

"From our first meeting Justin was upbeat and confident he could sell our house, which he did! He was most helpful with ideas and suggestions to help, and arranged a good arrangement between the buyers and ourselves. As we built the house and it meant a great deal to us, we were very happy to meet the new owners who we feel will love and appreciate the house as much as we did. Thanks Justin for all you help, it was a pleasure working with you. Perhaps we will again in the future, would not hesitate to call you."

"Alisa helped us buy our first home and we could not have picked a better agent. She was responsive, flexible and went out of her way to provide the best quality service. Alisa demonstrated patience and respect. When we had questions she did not hesitate to do the research and get answers. She gave us all the informative and details we needed to make this important decision. Alisa Mengel took care of everything and made the process incredibly smooth and clear for us. We could not be happier! We moved in almost immediately. Alisa sweetly followed up on us. We appreciate her professionalism and thoughtfulness."

"I worked with Kelly Skeval and was very happy I did. I trusted her during the process. I always felt like her intention was to get me into a house that was best suited for me. She never pushed me on anything or tried to convince me of anything. She had strong relevant knowledge of the market and was willing to research extra info as needed. For the property I ended up buying - Kelly met me there during a snowstorm and we put an offer in that was accepted within an hour. I would and I do recommend Kelly to my friends."

Howard Hanna Review

"My Partner and I worked with Jolene for nearly two years waiting for me to sell my house in SC, looking at properties to buy in case we wanted to build and looking at currently built houses. It was in one of her news letters that I noticed a house and upon further investigation wanted to get an appointment to view. She was about to go on vacation but took the time to set an appointment, viewed the house, decided to put in an offer and she took the time to see it through with an acceptance in 48 hours. All before going on her vacation. It wasn't easy for her or I but we stuck through it until we had a successful purchase f a home that suits our needs perfectly.":>

"Leslie's thorough market research and budget-friendly recommendations helped us get the most out of the sale of our home. The custom marketing promotion was great, but we didn't get to see the full benefits, as we had an offer the same week - though we're not complaining!"

"We were blessed with Kelly Skevel, who dropped what she was doing to show us our dream home on Memorial Day weekend.(and several other times!) She was very fast to get answers from seller and always had a huge smile on her face. As a first time buyer we had no clue the steps and she made the whole process a breeze!"

“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!”

“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.”
