Testimonials

Jackie Ovad is an AMAZING real estate agent!!! We are her repeat clients. Need I say more?

Four years ago, we hired her to find the right tenant for our rental property. She moved fast and quickly filled the vacancy. The tenant stayed with us for 4 years.

Then, we decided to sell our rental property a few months ago. Without a doubt, we hired Jackie on the spot. Her work ethics and tenacity to complete the job is not something common in other real estate agents. It comes from years of experience in delivering results. But you can find these kinds of reviews anywhere.

Let me tell you something beyond her obvious hard working nature. She works this hard as if this were her personal home to sell. The upgrades she recommended got us closer to our ambitious selling price. The contractor she hired (go Carlos!!!) has been working alongside her on other listings and has proven to be extremely intelligent, hard working, honest, diligent, and very affordable. Together, this is a power combo, one that everyone can benefit greatly.

We're non-Maryland residential owners, so we couldn't visit our property frequently. We simply trusted Jackie with all the upgrades to bring our home to the highest standards. She handles everything for us, making frequent trips to our home to tie any loose ends. She oversaw all upgrades and repairs, in our absence. I guarantee you will not find these qualities in other real estate agents.

Not all real estate agents care for their clients like Jackie does. Her advice is valuable, her actions are quick, and her promise is solid. She's incredibly dependable, and I say this as an understatement. I'm extremely fortunate to have worked with her twice.

If these qualities are important, then please consider Jackie when you need a friend, a coach, and an advisor for your real estate needs. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Thank you a million Jackie!!!We truly appreciate all your efforts!!!

Jackie was absolutely fabulous assisting my family sell and buy a home. Her attention to details, negotiation skills and dedication are unusual for the typical realtor. We will always recommend her to anyone we know. We love her. She went the extra mile to make sure everything was taken care of. Thank you Jackie for such great experience.

My wife and I were not looking forward to selling our house at first. We knew we were in a tough situation and were anticipating it taking months to sell as well as taking a hit financially. Jackie was the first realtor we met and we were blown away by her initial presentation. We had asked to meet just to get some information about selling and she came prepared with everything we needed to know. She had done the research and knew our situation before even meeting us for the first time. Her experience and expertise as a realtor speaks for itself. She also had a vast array of resources available to aide us in the selling process. She made the entire process so easy and stress free. From providing guidance on staging our home for showings to helping us find contractors for needed repairs, she did it all. She even had a professional photographer take and prepare the photos for our listing. We were able to list our house ahead of schedule and had multiple showings and offers on our home within the first week. In the end she sold our house in less than a month and got more than our original asking price. Jackie was professional, diligent, and available throughout the entire process.

We were so lucky to have Jackie guiding us through the buying process and can't thank her enough! She was really patient as we looked at different houses, she was available morning/noon/night 7 days a week! She was amazing!. Her professional advice was always very helpful. When we finally found our house she helped with everything making the experience really painless and smooth. She took care of pretty much everything, she was criticial mediating with the seller/lender and title company and supervised everything to make sure the closing process continued to progress. Jackie was very friendly and really professional
We recommend Jackie to everyone we know mentioning they are looking to buy/sell a house! Thanks Jackie!

- Patricia and Jose Outeda

"Amazing!! I would give her a million stars if I could. We were first time home sellers and she made the process a lot easier than expected. Jackie gave us great a great recommendation on a contractor for small fixes we needed to get the house show ready and she took care of everything after we accepted the offer and had to fix things in the home inspection. Just put it this way, the average home in our neighborhood took 4 months to sell, we accepted an offer in a week! I would recommend her to anyone!"

As a result of the unfortunate obligation I had to serve as the personal representative for our late brother’s estate, I needed to find a real estate professional to help us with the sale of a “unique” (read: “challenging”) home in the Baltimore area. Since neither my surviving brother nor I live there, it was important to find someone who was not only an experienced and ethical agent, but also someone who was willing to go the extra mile in representing us locally: engaging vendors, negotiating contracts, overseeing work, constantly checking up on the house, and countless other details…even going to buy a new refrigerator on our behalf! In addition to being a skilled and effective real estate agent, Jackie Ovad is an authentic human being, a caring person who works incredibly hard and who brings both savvy business skills and a big heart to her work. I am grateful to have had the good fortune of finding her and I am grateful to her for her incredibly hard work, her professional guidance, and her support throughout the process.

We highly recommend Jackie Ovad whether you are buying or selling a home. Jackie did a wonderful job helping us find and purchase the perfect home for our family in the ideal location at an excellent price. When it came time to sell and relocate, we were very lucky to have her as our agent again. Jackie sold our home, not once, not twice but three times because of buyer financing issues. Each time our home was under contract for more than the asking price within 4 days of being put on the market. She was in constant contact, not only with us but also with the buyer's real estate agent and mortgage agent. Jackie is very knowledgeable about the area and her negotiating skills are top notch!

- N & J Mc

Where do I start? Jackie Ovad was a gift from heaven for my wife and I. I found her thru Facebook advertising due to an unsatisfactory previous situation. We explained our situation and I sat back and listened. BOOM her knowledge, people skills, and ambition burst thru the phone and our 1st meeting. Jackie is very organized, detailed , focused and determined on meeting all of your expectations and beyond. She gave us a gameplan that fit our personal goals and went to work. Suggestions were made to help sell our home immediately. You can tell she's an expert in this industry by her contacts in mortgage industry, home improvement, inspections, home pests, plumbing, painting, photography, etc. Whatever you need she's got the hook up lol. We wanted to sell our townhome and move into a single family home ASAP. We have a 2yr old and an 10yr old so urgency was key. She communicated with us constantly and always available via calls, text, emails, etc. Our home was on the market for 5 months with a previous realtor with not much activity and with Jackie for 1month we got so much traffic and home SOLD and new HOME bought/settled in the same day. I'm telling you JACKIE OVAD is the answer!!! You won't be disappointed ever 🙂

Jackie was my agent when I sold my house in Owings Mills, MD this year. Since I live out of town I was looking for an agent who could handle all aspects of the sale process and Jackie proved to be top notch throughout the entire process. She patiently answered my questions about the sale process and was knowledgable about the process (including the out-of-state tax requirements), she helped manage the renovation process and recommended professionals who helped with various aspects of the sale, she was very responsive and called back promptly when she was occupied, she prepped the home and got it ready to be listed and shown to prospective buyers, she provided useful counsel during the negotiation process and she worked with the management company to obtain the resale package in a timely manner. We got an offer for the property within a day of it being listed on the market and the sale closed on schedule 4 weeks later! I couldn't be happier with the work that Jackie did and have no hesitation recommending her based on the stellar work that she did. Thank you Jackie!

- Dara Adekanmbi

Jackie Ovad is the epitome of class, grace and knowledge! Her enthusiasm and tenacity superseded all of the realtors that I interviewed, which is ultimately why I chose her! Jackie’s motivation and drive kept me going, even amid our many obstacles. Thank you sooo much for your dedication and hard work and most importantly getting my asking price!!!!!

- Tamika Simmons

Jackie was able to sell the house over the asking price. She is always available for her clients very dependable and caring. I recommend Jackie without any hesitations.

- Happy Client 2

"Jackie Ovad helped us on several occasions over 3 years. We met Jackie when we relocated to the area. We were looking for a single family, detached home to rent and Jackie was the listing agent. She was very professional and helpful. When we needed to move again a year later but were not ready to purchase a home, she helped us find an apartment complex that allowed a short-term lease and a dog. Once again, when we were ready to purchase a home we called Jackie. Jackie was very professional and patient. She knew the area well and helped us narrow down where we should search. Jackie listened to our wants and only sent listings that fit our needs. She found the perfect home for us and negotiated a great deal all within a couple of weeks. Whenever we had a question or issue we were always a able to contact Jackie and she was more than willing to help us."

"Mi experiencia con la senora Jackie Ovad fue excelente, ella siempre se preocupo por tenerme bien informada y despejarme las dudas que se me presentaban a tiempo, siempre estaba dispuesta y disponible para cuando la requeria. Me siento muy satisfecha de haberla tenido a Ella como mi Realtor ya que hizo posible que yo Luz Marina Farr este disfrutando de mi propiedad, ya que en el pasado siempre tuve solo negativas y la senora Jackie siempre me animo y me dio alternativas. Yo siempre le hablo a mis amistades y conocidos que si quieren tener vivienda propia tienen que comunicarse con la senora Jackie. "Senora Jackie gracias por mi casa y mi felicidad" que Dios la bendiga siempre"

"Jackie was a very good real state agent to me when I was looking for a house. She was on top of every move that the sellers required. She also was very flexible. I am very happy that I met her and in the future when I am ready to move to a bigger house I will be requesting Jackie to be my agent. Won't even think it twice."

- nanp14

"We had the great pleasure to work with Jackie Ovad to purchase our new home. We had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. When we decided to start looking for a new home we weren't sure where to look first. We had the option to look closer to my parents or closer to our jobs. Jackie was able to help me making the right decision by making me list the things that are more important to us. My fiancée and I started looking last year and we had reached out to multiple well known realtors in the area and Jackie impressed us with her promptness to set up showings. She was great explaining to us each step by step, from submitting our offer to countering offers, to home inspection, walk-through and closing. She was so patient with us and all our questions. She made us feel comfortable and guided us with knowledge and kindness. We will highly recommend Jackie to anyone thinking about buying or selling a house."

Jackie was a pleasure to work with and an immense help during my home buyer experience. She was very professional showing great expertise in the home buy process and made a point to keep me informed on what was going on during the process and always got information to me and/or responded to any question in a timely fashion. I appreciate all that Jackie did for me in helping me to purchase my new home I will definitely refer her to family and friends looking to sell or buy a home.

Jackie Ovad is a great realtor. She is patient, professional and informative. All the qualities we, my brother and I, needed to sell our late mother's home. After our mother's passing, it was a very emotional time for us. When we finally decided to sell mom's home, I decided to seek, find and research a realtor who not only knows how to sell a home, but who could understand how to sell the house to which we were emotionally tied. And because neither of us lived in the same state where the house resides, or worked the same schedule, Jackie overcame the challenges of location and time restraints to get the job done. I know that we are appreciative of her efforts and hard work both during and after the sell of the house.

Jackie is an awesome realtor she will def meet your needs and go above and beyond. My experience with Jackie was more than her being a realtor she felt more like family she pushed me even when I felt like giving up. She's an all American realtor if you DNT have Jackie as a realtor to find your dream home you probably won't find it. Once again Thank you so much for EVERYTHING!! LOVE YOU 🙂

- ClassyNik30

Jackie is the best realtor I have ever worked with. I have bought and sold 5 homes in the past and have never received as much assistance with the sale as Jackie provided. I live over 2 hrs away from the property being sold. Jackie recommended contractors for needed repairs, painting etc, and coordinated with them for access and followup. She got the price I wanted and had interested buyers before it was even listed. Highly recommended.

- George Chianese

I had the pleasure of working with Jackie with sale of my townhome that sold quickly, and the purchase of my single family home. She was very helpful and sincere in helping me and made it as smooth and stress free as possible. I really enjoyed working with her.

"We would like to express our total positive experience with our agent Jackie Ovad. Jackie is an outstanding professional real estate agent that has demonstrated old school business values. She is a powerful example of a well-trained representative with many attributes - highly motivated, customer service oriented, goal driven, and resourceful. From day one, Jackie has been respectable, accessible, courteous, punctual and most of all honest. During our recent condo-buying process, we had to go out of town. Nevertheless, Jackie assured us that we were in good hands. Not only was she good at following up and updating us on our progress, she impressed us with “Tech Savvy” skills of electronic signing. Jackie has a thorough understanding of real estate industry software, social media, and is accountable for all her actions. The number one asset that we admire the most is her ability to listen to our concerns and respond with positive feedback. What more could a home buyer or seller ask for of their agent. She is just awesome and we are giving her the greatest recommendation. We have already started referring Jackie to our family and friends. As business professionals, we recognize and appreciate quality customer service and Jackie Ovad exceeded our expectations. We are certain that any customer will be satisfied with choosing Jackie as their agent. We wish Jackie much success, health and prosperity because she deserves it. She was truly a blessing to us and we are thankful".

If you are looking to sell or buy a home, my family and I highly recommend Jackie Ovad!! Jackie provided our family with impeccable service and kept us informed throughout the entire selling and buying process. Initially, we were apprehensive about finding a good realtor but reading the reviews really helped because that’s how we found Jackie. Selling a home requires a lot of work and can be a stressful process, especially with young children because your home needs to be showcase ready at all times. But, Jackie made this process more bearable by providing us with guidance on how to make our home more appealing to buyers. During our initial meeting, she spent time with us explaining the process and what she would be doing. She addressed all of our concerns which put us at ease. Jackie was able to sell our home for more than what we were asking, which was a major PLUS!!!! Additionally, you want to coordinate your sell as much as possible with the purchase of your new home. We were out of the country while negotiating and finalizing the details on the purchase of our new home. Jackie was very dependable and responsive and kept us abreast about the status of our soon to be home. Jackie was able to negotiate the purchase of our new home significantly below the asking price. Jackie was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and now, our dream home has become a reality. She became more than a realtor to our family, she became a friend. She put the needs of our family at the forefront which really meant a lot. We truly can’t express how much we appreciate her. Thank you Jackie for everything!!!

"Jackie was wonderful to work with. This was our first time buying a house so we had a lot of questions and concerns and Jackie put our minds at ease. She was so attentive and responsive, it was a joy to work with her!"

- Hayde

"Jackie Ovad is a true Real Estate Professional. There's a reason why she has 5 stars: She gets the job done! It took Jackie less than 1 month to find the right tenants for our townhouse. She's very smart, diligent, resourceful, and responsive. From assessing our property to posting ads and filtering candidates, she was on top of everything. Her work ethics and the ability to get the job done speaks for itself. What really impressed me was her ability to communicate with all parties, at each stage of the process. She informed us of potential pitfalls and provided valuable insights to the leasing process and potential tenants. Her communication skills are great. She always answers her phone (which is a rare thing these days), finds solutions for issues that arise, and will not stop until the job gets done. Whether you're looking to find the right tenant, or buy/sell a house, you will not go wrong with Jackie. There are too many wannabes and pretenders in the real estate industry. Jackie is the real deal. We were extremely fortunate to have met her. Thank you Jackie for all you’ve done. We greatly appreciate everything."

- Chet G.

"Jackie is very dedicated to her work. She is pleasant to work with and very flexible to fit our schedule. She always keeps our best interest in mind. We are continuing to work with her to find our dream home. I definitely recommend Jackie to work with!"

- Happy Client 1

If you were to look up in the dictionary "Top-notch Real Estate Agent," Jackie's picture will be right there! She is a one-of-a-kind professional, and I am so grateful that my family found her. Jackie is the epitome of excellence. Jackie's professionalism during our time together has exceeded all of my expectations, and I am unsure if anyone will ever be able to come close to her. Jackie worked with my family for several years. We reached out to her through seeing her advertisement, and from the very beginning, she showed her resourcefulness and patience! Jackie never tried to push her own agenda. She sought to support our family and put our needs as a priority. From our initial contact, I explained that my family had the worst experience with buying our first home. That agent wasn't caring, didn't fight for our needs, and was there for a quick buck. Jackie listened to our concerns and stepped right in to make sure we truly understood the process of selling our first home. She patiently waited while we dealt with various obstacles in the process and consistently checked in on this. Our selling situation and the impromptu move were not ideal, but Jackie was there every step of the way. She made sure we stayed on task AND got the best deal for our family. Our house still needed to be fixed, and she provided resources and help along the way. We sold our home in a buyer's market, and Jackie got us two deals within a WEEK of putting our house on the market. Shocking since our home still needed some improvement. The best token of all was that we got our asking price! We were surprised, but considering the attention-to-detail Jackie gives, we knew we were in good hands. During the selling process, Jackie was full on duty by making sure our paperwork was correct, and she even found a financial error in our paperwork and advocating for us to have it fixed. The only regret I have in this process is that we moved out-of-state. Otherwise, Jackie has a customer in us FOR LIFE. Thank you, Jackie, for everything. You are a one-of-a-kind leader, advocate, and exceptional person all around. We are deeply grateful to you! The Haley Family

- Jasmin Haley

My experience working with Jackie was amazing. She is very dedicated to helping clients buy/sell their home. She is innovative in her selling methods and she is very knowledgeable and stays engaged with her clients throughout the entire process.

- Erica D G

We are a foreign family that ten years ago decided to buy our first home. After reading many realtor reviews, Jackie was the one that stood out the most. Jackie was able to help us understand every detail, from the paperwork to selecting the perfect home in a great location at an amazing price! After so many years we still chat with Jackie. She didn't forget about us and neither have we! We are very satisfied with Jackies professionalism.

- Calvillo5

My husband and I were thrilled to have Jackie Ovad as our Realtor for the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. She responded very quickly to every email, text and phone call, gave us great advice, very professional, attentive to detail and very easy to work with. She stayed the course through a very trying and frustrating selling/closing process for both homes! Jackie is extremely honest with her clients and I can highly recommend her to anyone seeking a truly professional Realtor She works VERY hard for her clients and best of all, gets results! you won't go wrong with Jackie Ovad as your Realtor for sure!
