“Our Clients Say It Best”
Selling a home from afar was a little intimidating at first, but Jodi made it easy for us. The team took care of all the details, got it ready for the market and listed it. They gave us honest advice about the improvements that will increase the value of the house and took care of implementing it. We were also impressed with the marketing strategy, especially the personal website they created for our home. After listing the home, they kept us informed about the feedback they were getting from agents and potential buyers. Lastly, once the offer came, they represented our interests well, and took care of all the details. Thank you!

Unlike most individuals who only sell a home a few times in their lives, I, as a developer/builder can compare my many experiences with a large number of Realtors and know that Jodi and her team belong to the elite league of professionals who master their trade. Team Jodi utilizes all of the traditional, proven marketing tools but they are equally familiar with the new web-based marketing instruments. They gave me the guidance regarding proper pricing of my most recently sold house – obviously I was reaching for the stars and they brought me back down to earth and suggested the house be staged by a decorator. When I finally agreed to the price cut and the expense of staging the house we had more showings, i.e., more exposure and the eagerly anticipated sale. Thank you Team Jodi; my next house for you to list is a few weeks away from completion.

Just a quick note to thank you and “Team Jodi” for your help in selling our home in less than two weeks!! We started the process “FSBO” and were overwhelmed. When we listed with Team Jodi, we were impressed with the number of showings to qualified buyers. The services provided by Team Jodi – from the in-home brochure, the calls from Centralized Showings to the web based client feed back site were all valuable to us as we moved through the process of closing on our property.
Many thanks also to you and Jeff Holland for the many hours that you spent with us in searching for our new home. The daily emails that present homes that met our criteria which were very specific, were very helpful as we narrowed locations for our new home.
We would not hesitate to use Team Jodi in the future and will definitely pass along your referral information to our friends.

On behalf of my family I want to thank you and the entire “Team Jodi” organization for your superior service, patience and kindness in our home search. You are much more than “just” a real estate agent. Coming from out of state and not knowing the area, we were overwhelmed to say the least. You not only helped us to find our dream home in Chapel Hill, but also assisted us in checking out schools, scouting recreation sports opportunities for our daughters, finding restaurants, clubs, shopping, cultural hot spots, etc. Your advice on what and how to make an offer on the house, recommendations on closing agents, home inspection companies and even mortgage brokers has been outstanding. We could not have done it without you. I should also mention that your follow up after the close of sale has been most welcomed—– it’s not easy finding a good plumber, electrician or handy man in a new town…..you knew just who to call. We are deeply grateful for your expertise and very pleased to now call you a friend. Thanks for everything, Jodi.

Our experience with Jodi Bakst and Team Jodi was exceptional. She and
her team redefine prompt, courteous, efficient, and effective service,
with a respect for the customer and a work ethic that serve as models to
anyone in any profession. When we were interested in putting our house
on the market, we went to her website, which was very informative, and
provided our contact information. She called us back the next day. We
discussed our situation and informed her of our needs. Within two days
of our first contacting her, she met with us and walked through our home
with us to suggest things we might want to do to maximize its
marketability. These thoughts were all very helpful and constructive.
Just a few days later, we met again and reviewed her pricing/market
analysis, which was exceptionally informative. She must have an amazing
network and set of connections, because nearly immediately we were able
to identify a buyer within two days and agreed to sale terms that fit
our needs perfectly. We were able to get within 1/2% of our asking price
within a few days of first contacting her — we didn’t even feel as
though we had put the house on the market before it was sold.
Her diligence and hard work also paid off for us as she helped us buy
our next home, across town — an “upgrade” to help us support our
growing family. Just as promptly as she was able to identify prospective
buyers for our home, she was able to provide for us a veritable menu of
homes for sale in the area. We had very particular needs and interests
for the next home, and were amazed at how fast she could give us options
and help us start viewing them. Throughout the process, she immediately
identified with our needs, and was amazingly accommodating with our busy
work schedules. We identified a home and had a contract signed much
sooner than we ever could have anticipated. She continued to work with
us, staying in touch consistently until the closing dates for both
homes, and even afterwards. Jodi’s dedication and compassion made these
potentially very stressful life events very manageable. We have
recommended her to everybody we know who is interested in buying or
selling a home. We remain in touch with her on a regular basis, and know
that she will be the first person we call when we are ready for our next

What an effort on your part to get us out of the state! We made a huge decision to change our lives and it meant selling our unique home and property. We interviewed five agents before choosing you. We thought you might want to know what put you on top.
First and foremost was your presentation. Holy cow, were we ever impressed. We weren’t getting an agent…we were getting a team. Then you kept your promise with regular updates. Then, not one, but two open houses. Furthermore, we always had enough notice to prep before showings of which there were thirteen – in only two months. The first potential buyers who walked through the door – the same day the house went on the market – ended up buying the place, but not to worry, we even had a backup offer waiting. This can happen when all your information is presented on the market at once. We had gorgeous color brochures with professional photographs and room by room descriptions, a really thorough web representation, lock box, signs, and even an 800 information line you could call for the juicy details (which then sent a page to your team so that you could follow up on every lead). Oh, and lets not forget the interior design specialist you brought to our home to make suggestions on how to make rooms look roomier and more inviting.
We actually got more than we intially thought the house would even list for (after all, your suggested sell price was $100,000 more than any other agent interviewed!). Team Jodi, that only happens when you have someone who can take a unique piece of property and do their homework to come up with a sell price that won’t place you out of the buyer’s market while truely giving you what the place is worth. Three months after meeting you we were in Missouri, and our home was due to close a week later. It happened. Beyond all expectations. Difficult Buyers were only the start of the hurdles you helped us over.
So, thanks. For everything. And we do mean everything. Your teamwork put you over the top. Your professionalism and knowledge of the business and the industry as a whole is unmatched in our eyes. We sincerely hope you will come for a visit soon at our resort in Missouri. God knows you deserve a vacation. Thank you Thank you Thank you! You will succeed in all your endeavors, you care so much about every detail. How could you possibly fail?!
