Testimonials

 

When my family and I met Jere, we were considering a move but not quite on the same page. She took the time to meet with us, discuss the market with us, openly and honestly. In guiding us, she was very consultative, patient and respectful. It was clear her agenda was to make sure we were making the right decision to move or not, rather to get a deal. When it was time to pull the trigger, she was ready. She both sold our existing house and helped us find our next home in Historic Brookhaven. She leveraged her connections and in depth knowledge for both transactions. Our house sold to a buyer she found through her connections. The property we bought and many she pursued for us, were not necessarily in FMLS, but properties she pursued to suit our wants and needs. The marketing for our house she sold included professional videography and photography and aerial shots that she leveraged through her powerful far reaching marketing program. Her network is vast from her local relationships down to the neighbors, to international connections she has not just through Sotheby’s but directly to the top national and international agents and buyers.

“We first met Jere over a year ago when we consulted with her and two other agents about the sale of our home. We wanted to see what strategies were available for marketing and selling our home. Jere stood out because she actually had a plan, a strategy to maximize showings and maximize pricing for our home. From the beginning, it was clear that Jere understood our goals and she set about to reaching them. It goes without saying that at her level most agents should know and understand the neighborhoods they market. What set Jere apart, and which ultimately led us to getting our house under contract within 3 weeks of listing at 96% of the listing price, was that she really knew how to work the market. Jere watched the market, the sales and the availability of homes which would compete with ours and when the time was right, we listed as she advised. Most homeowners feel that real estate agents infrequently deliver value. This is not the case with Jere. She gets it right and she gets it right the first time. We recommend her wholeheartedly. Jere, you are awesome.”

“The real estate industry is inundated with realtors yet Jere manages to differentiate herself so that clients, referrals and business come to her and come to her first rather than the other way around.”

Susan McMullen, Business Coach and Speaker


“Jere Metcalf was one of 3 realtors that my husband and I considered and interviewed for the sale and purchase of our homes. When we began the process, we knew we needed someone not only with experience and expertise, we needed a real estate agent who would remain professional, calm and had the market knowledge in our specific area. Insight and insiders knowledge with the ability to negotiate the best deal for us and make the transition as smooth as possible. In every aspect of the transactions on both buying our new home and selling our house, Jere went above and beyond. She has the team, resources, knowledge, and expertise. We sold our house at asking price in a week and bought the home of our dreams for an amazing price in the current “Seller’s” market. She has a support team and systems in place for her clients to hold your hand through the process, down to a tasty family meal delivered the day we moved!”

Victoria Rosetti, CEO/Owner at Pure Inspired Jewels With A Purpose


“When we met Jere we had been trying to sell our house for several months. Jere differentiated herself immediately in the interview process. Then Jere came to us with a strategy and a plan, implemented it and got our house sold. We had a gorgeous unique home selling for over one million dollars and in a time when appraisals were a challenge to overcome, especially in this price point. Jere knew how to communicate with our appraiser to address any potential problems. Her negotiation skills like her marketing were top notch. She was hands on throughout the process making a smooth and quick closing. We have moved ten plus times–We have worked with many agents; Jere stands out. She is truly involved, cares about her client as well as understands the market and how to represent her client for the best deal possible. It was an honor to have her represent us.”

Michael Korizno, Vice President Worldwide Strategic Account Management, New Business Development and Sales Operatons at Eastman Kodak


“Before I met Jere, I had a home to sell at the bottom of the market and not much time to get it done. She came highly recommended by a close friend. I still interviewed several agents to be sure, in the interview with Jere and in the final result, the recommendation was dead on. Jere understood how to price, negotiate and handle the contract to bring the property to close smoothly despite the slow market, difficult transaction. Not only could I not have obtained a contract for the price I did with Jere’s help, Jere understood how to communicate with the appraiser to make sure he understood the value in a time when appraisers were tough and how to negotiate the deal in my best interest on every level, from the smallest terms to the biggest, price. Thank you, Jere.”

Karen Burger


“Jere is an exceptional realtor. When selling our home in Brookhaven, we had previously had our home on the market when we hired Jere. The difference in marketing, service, knowledge, negotiating skills, well everything, was such a breath of fresh air. She used her connections and creativity to promote the house through gorgeous marketing and events in a way that quickly brought 2 offers. Once we had 2 offers, she gave us the insight, information and direction we needed to make the right decisions to get the best possible contract for our property. Jere is exceptional at what she does, an outstanding real estate agent and a true professional.”

Stacy Rodenhiser, Executive Director at Drew Eckl & Farnham


“Jere has an exception knowledge of the market and way of working with her clients. As a realtor and my neighbor in Brookhaven Heights, she has sold house after house that other agents couldn’t sell and quickly. She has a keen level of communication, expertise and creativity and uses her resources and connections to get the job done. Although I am no longer in the Real Estate industry, I consistently recommend Jere to my past clients, friends and family with confidence that they will be cared for with professionalism and outstanding results!”

Conni Todd, Senior Partner & Executive Coach at Clearwater Consulting Group


“I’ve worked with many realtors. Working with Jere was different from any other. At the bottom of the market, when land was considered more a liability than an asset and the prices were at an all time low, Jere took the time and had the brains to put together a creative outside the box deal that created value for my lot and sold it for more than our asking price. She knows her stuff and understands the real estate market. She used her knowledge and connections to make a deal happen for me that everyone said was impossible.

I highly recommend speaking to Jere if you are considering selling or buying any land or a house. She is exceptional.”

Todd Bone, Founder & President of XS International, Inc. | Expertly Simplified IT Maintenance


“Jere was introduced to us as a problem solver during the peak of the recession in 2008. We had a $1,000,000 home that needed to be sold and despite working with a number of realtors no actual buyers. Jere analyzed the property in great detail, gave us the facts, good and bad, and devised a strategy to get the property sold. We hired her, she did what she said she would do and despite the depressed market conditions sold the house while minimizing our losses. As a result we have continued to work with her additional residential real estate deals all of which have been profitable. She brings valuable knowledge and insight to every deal and is great to work with.

In summary, Jere works with integrity, knowledge, insight, tenacity and brilliant strategy; I highly recommend her.”

Ian Silverstone, CEO at Waters-Edge Group, Inc.


“Jere is my good friend and neighbor in Brookhaven Heights. She has indepth knowledge of the market combined with an amazing ability to work with and understand others, a great combination in a realtor. Every month, she sends me a detailed market update of our neighborhood as well as of metro Atlanta. She has the most exquisite marketing, both gorgeous, unforgettable and cutting edge. I recommend Jere to my friends, and highly recommend her to you if you are considering moving. She is a fabulous resource that is priceless to anyone moving, selling or buying a home.”

M.C. Casterline, Corporate Account Executive at Hewlett-Packard


“Jere was great to work with on our home purchase. We were fairly set on our budget and the style of home we wanted, but weren’t ‘sold’ on any particular part of town. Jere was available to show us properties that met our criteria in a wide geographic area. When we decided to make an offer on a bank-owned property, I assumed the process would be very drawn out. However, Jere was able to obtain timely information and responses from the REO agent. She provided great service and the process was smooth from start to finish.”

Alison Alesi, JD, CIP, Director of Regulatory Compliance at Sterling Institutional Review Board


“I met Jere when she sold my client’s estate home. Upon meeting her I immediately recognized she is the cream of the crop in her industry. Not only did she sell my client’s home within two weeks of it being listed for sale, her enthusiasm and competence in working with her were top notch. She was a part of the process every step of the way providing my client insightful, educated and sound advice. She knew exactly what needed to be done to to prepare the home, had gorgeous elegant marketing, and calmed my client with sound advice durring the negotiating process, and she didn’t miss a beat on dates and deadlines to bring us to closing.”

Karen Fox, CPA, President at Karen C Fox CPA PC

Jere is a listing specialist, whether you are looking to sell a home intown, or an estate in the metro-Atlanta area, Jere’s marketing and negotiation skills to represent you in the best way possible. Top all this off with a non-nonsense, honest and hardworking ethics, Jere Metcalf is definitely the best of the best.”

Alene Brodsky


“Jere sold two of my residential properties in Atlanta. My townhome as well as my intown house. In selling my townhome, she listed it and found the buyer who paid full price and closed quickly. In negotiating the contract, she took the time to ensure that we were well represented and her negotiated techniques were excellent as she was able to get full price for us in a market that was declining. When it was time to sell my house, I knew hands down, Jere would be our agent. She knew exactly what to do to the house to get it sold and helped us get it done. When she sold the house, the sold price exceeded our asking price. Her integrity, work ethic and attention to detail make her an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you for everything, Jere.”

Michelle Cox, MSRE, CCIM, Director of Acquistions at Cypress Ridge Capital


“I have known Jere since she and I were 14 years old. In all the years I have known her, her work ethic, integrity and enthusiasm have never wained. She has always been the best at anything she does, works with utmost honesty and I’ve never seen her not excited and ready to help others especially when it comes to real estate. Ten years ago when Jere told me she was going to become a Realtor, there was no doubt in my mind she would be the great success she is today.”

Kari Downing, Real Estate Manager at Realty Trust Group LLC – Healthcare Real Estate


“I’ve known Jere since late 2007, after I met her at a ProWIN meeting, and I’ve had a number of opportunities to get to know her better through ProWIN, some mutual friends, and some other groups. She’s smart, dynamic, and one of the hardest-working people I know. I’ve referred her to some of my own clients for Realtor services in the past and plan to continue to refer to her in the future. She really knows her stuff, she’s got the integrity and professionalism I like to see, and she’s just a great person to deal with as well.”

Loraine M. DiSalvo, Attorney


“Jere is my neighbor, friend and dedicated book club member. In our neighborhood I’ve seen Jere beautifully market and sell homes. She is a real connector that works with enthusiasm, integrity and competence. In getting to know Jere, it has quickly become obvious why she and her team are so successful in selling real estate.”

Becky Dannenfelser, Principal, Clearwater Consulting Group, Leadership and Team Development


“Jere, my friend and neighbor in Brookhaven, is an excellent Realtor. Her marketing is superb, her enthusiasm contagious and her work ethic and competence insurmountable. Each time she markets a home in our neighborhood, she does an exceptional job, marketing the home beautifully and aggressively and the homes sell quickly for a great price.”

Allison Entrekin, Executive Editor at Atlanta Magazine Custom Media & Southeastern correspondent for Travel + Leisure


“Whether Jere is helping me secure a steal of a condo or helping a colleague select the right family home, her knowledge, willingness and ability to assist are insurmountable. Jere takes time to service clients in a way that fulfills their needs. Best of all, Jere will always tell me what I need to hear to advise me to make the right decision on a real estate purchase – whether it’s negotiation strategy, prioritizing properties, considering all options or keeping my stress under control in that decision making.”

Richard Cates, Owner, Cates Architects


“Working with Jere and her team was a dream. When we bought a home she helped us find exactly what we were looking for. We bought a home that was in foreclosure. Jere had the expertise to negoatiate the deal and the customer service to make the process smooth, even with the additional intricacies of the house being bank owned.”

James C. (Jim) Alesi, MBA, Industrial Tenant and Buyer’s Representative


“Jere and her real estate team are the cream of the crop. From step one, their advice, competence and customer service exceeded my expectations. Jere’s understanding of the residential real estate market, how to prepare, market and price a house were incomparable to other agents I have interviewed. She told me what I needed to do and I followed her advice. As a result, of property marketing and preparation, when the house went on the market it received multiple offers and was under contract in 4 days and closed in 2 weeks.
I couldn’t have done this without Jere’s expertise and knowledge.”

Judie Raiford, Owner, Raiford Gallery


“I turned to Jere to sell our Atlanta townhouse after our original realtor turned out to be a complete joke. I had to interview and hire Jere remotely from NYC and in working with her, she took the time and knew exactly what needed to be done to get it sold. Her recommendations and candor were very helpful and we managed to sell before the downturn took effect. I wish we had hired Jere from the start.”

Matt Baumgarth, EVP Capital Markets at BOC Aviation


“Jere did a great job in selling our townhouse and working with us to find and close on a beautiful new home quickly. She recommended excellent home inspection and survey firms. In having a survey we picked up a lot of yard that looked like our neighbors. Jere is very professional, kind and patient which we needed with the tight timeline and our hectic work schedules. Her team is just as great which helped us when we wanted to see a home ASAP. We cannot say enough nice things and we are both incredibly detail oriented and expected a lot from here. A five star rating just isn’t high enough praise.”

Felicia Gentry


“Absolute best agent ever! She will showcase your house like no one else can. She has the best house stagers in the business, she cares about how your house shows and she knows that top dollar is the objective.”
