Tell Us Your Story

I interviewed multiple Realtors and after serious deliberation and research I chose Jackie Collins.

So glad I did! First, her sense of pricing was spot on. Second, she was very careful and deliberate on the MLS listing details. I proofed that and all the right boxes were checked, descriptions accurate and the narrative just right. Photography was excellent. We hit the market with a bang because we had five showings and two offers on the first weekend! Seriously, the ultimate buyer raised their offer to above the listing price. We got a great contract in five days. Then came the inevitable avalanche of inspections, and Jackie was right there to monitor, report and assist with getting repairs made.. We had one relatively major issue that required more work and Jackie carried me through a couple crises there. She was extremely attentive and diligent every step of the way! The results tell the story: we closed for 1% above list price 30 days after the listing went live. Incredible job Jackie!!

She has closed four properties for my family over the last two years. She is thorough and responsive. She is also very knowledgeable of today’s real estate market. Both of our homes sold within days of going on the market both over asking price. She is a consummate professional and I would recommend Jaclyn Collins with NextHome on the Lake Realty over any Realtor!

During my lifetime I have owned 10 homes.

The property listed and sold by Jo Jones is the most unique home I've owned. It was an older home built it 1876 located in the small town of White Plains Georgia on 59 acres. Due to it's rural location I anticipates one-two years on the market to sell the property. NextHome Real estate, Headed by Jo Jones was excellent in their listing and promotion of the property. As a result the property sold in 13 months. The sale was due to the real estate company's excellence.

I had the pleasure of working with Jaclyn , on selling my home in Eatonton GA across the road from Lake Oconee.

She was amazing to work with , I was working with her remote as I live 5 hours away. We never meet , but I felt I knew her just after our first conversation. She is very responsive, transparent, and has wonderful depth of the market and area. She guided me though the process and keep me updated at all times. Her listing and placement as well as current market had interest and showings almost at once the same day! She guided me on looking at the multiple offers and explained in clear details pro and cons for me to consider. I live by customer service and communication due to my employer so my bar is high when dealing with a sales person and Jaclyn, meet and exceed my expectations. I highly recommend her services and would suggest her to all my friends, clients and would work with her again in a heart beat. Karla Yeck Clark 7/26/2021 c;losed June 28th 2021

Sherry Kones

Jo Jones is a great Real Estate Agent and Broker.

We listed our lake house with hher after various other agents had the opportunity of listing the house. Ultimately, she rented the house, received multiple offers, handled the inspections with the renter and ultimately closed the sale. She is by-far the most most experienced agent I have ever met and had the pleasure of her representing us.
