My wife and I consider ourselves very fortunate to have met Jamie Blakely. Buying and selling a house can be a daunting task, and to mention, extremely stressful. You need more than an agent, you need to be represented by a team that understands your needs, listens to you and finds out what you are looking for. The dedication, hard work, amazing negotiation skills and non-stop pursuit is second to none. They never stop working for you. In addition to the professional expertise, the personal attention that we got was unsurpassed, the "can do" attitude and genuine kindness has truly made Jamie Blakely and the team "The Best in the Business". Today we purchased our dream home in Shady canyon, thanks to Jamie. We highly recommend Jamie Blakely to anyone that is looking to find their dream home or sell in today's tough real-estate market.

Ms. Jamie Blakely has been instrumental in providing the expertise, service, knowledge and follow-up I needed to feel comfortable with the preparation and sale of my home. I typically work a 60 hour to 80 hour week, so I didn't have spare time in my schedule for inefficiencies. Jamie did a tremendous job helping me de-clutter my home; in addition, she worked with the photographer to get stunning photos of the house and its view, and created an excellent live video of the home. Furthermore, she and her team were excellent in getting the word out to other brokers and potential buyers through premium postcards, brochures, flyers, email campaigns, signage, magazine listings, twitter feeds, facebook mentions, and online postings - they truly understand the old and new worlds of media. Jamie has kept me in the loop as much as I wanted regarding showings, interested parties and negotiations. I have worked with several agents in the past and am sold on Jamie; I highly recommend her and her sincere, knowledgeable and attentive service.

Jamie is an excellent Realtor and a very easy going person to work with.
Jamie looks for unusual and "out of the box" ways of reaching prospective buyers - talking and marketing to people about my property at the Monarch Bay Club,the St. Regis Resort and networking with potential buyers, etc.
She always did what she thought was right for me. Her recommendations were always to make sure my needs and objectives always came first.
I had very difficult tenants in 2 houses I was selling. Jamie was so professional, when handling the open houses, even when a tenant, who was standing in front of the open house, was telling people the house was horrible and the price was too high. Of course, this was the tenant who wanted to purchase the property and discourage buyers!
The Monday before Thanksgiving, when my mover bailed out on me at the last minute, Jamie acted quickly and without a hint of despair. Since I was unavailable to take care of the move, Jamie organized and took care of the move herself. This is just one of the many efforts Jamie put forth throughout the listing period.

My husband and I thought our questions and suggestions were always taken seriously, and we appreciated this collaborative approach. At a stage when we felt a price improvement was necessary, Jamie came to our home for a brief and to-the-point meeting of the minds, and we were all pleased with the decision, which yielded almost immediate desired results..The marketing and photos were sensational.
