When Jennie joined the real estate business with her husband, Bill, in 2007, the market was flooded with short sales. With their business savvy and ability to adapt quickly to current conditions, Blackburn Coastal Realty was able to help more than 35 families through those difficult times. In 2010 the market shifted to non-distressed listings. Jennie shifted with the times and soon caught on to why homes listed by other Realtors weren’t selling and began coming up with innovative ideas to connect sellers with buyers. Using home staging, photography and other creative devices, she was able to help her clients sell their homes for more - faster and without a lot of hassle.
As a Realtor, Jennie believes in selling homes, not just listing them. It takes an agent with finesse and tenacity nowadays to get the maximum sales price quickly for homeowners. That's where Jennie comes in. She goes into your property with “buyer’s eyes” looking for what needs to be done to make it irresistible to buyers. In fact, one property Jennie took over as Realtor for was a condo in Pelican Cove. She staged this home so well that it was featured on HGTV’s Beachfront Bargain Hunt. The condo sold before the show even had a chance to air!
Most Realtors will do a comparable market analysis, forecasting a market price for your home based strictly on recent sales. Jennie takes it further by considering current market conditions and evaluating current comparable properties for sale nearby. She stages your home to look as attractive as possible next to others currently on the market. She then hires a professional photographer to take mouth-watering pictures which she uploads to 100s of real estate portals complete with captions that draw in more potential buyers.
With 15 years in the realty business and even more experience in sales and marketing, Jennie knows what it takes to get your property sold quickly and at the highest price possible. Jennie and her husband William work and live at the beach. The couple loves the beach so much that it’s no surprise that Blackburn Coastal Realty specializes in beach properties. Jennie’s favorite thing about representing beach clients is how different each community is. Even neighborhoods that are minutes from each other have distinct cultures and personalities all their own. Jennie can bring the personality of your home to life and find the perfect buyer for it!
