WHAT DO CLIENTS SAY ABOUT THE WILSON POWERS REAL ESTATE TEAM IN MEDINA?

KIND WORDS FROM OUR CLIENTS

Working with Jamie was like working with family. She is professional, responsive and anticipated our needs. Jamie and her entire team’s experience made our relocation better than we could have ever expected. She has continued to be a resource for us in the area for referrals that relate to our new home.

– John S

We selected Jamie Powers and Howard Hanna Realtors because of Jamie’s reputation in our community. Her “sold” signs are literally everywhere. From the very first call throughout the process and up to the point where we’re preparing to close Jamie has revealed a great depth of market knowledge, responsiveness, solid advice, and has been generous with her time. Moreover, Jamie is a genuinely pleasant and highly professional person who it’s been a pleasure working with. The sale of our home couldn’t have happened more smoothly.

– Jeffrey M

Jamie’s knowledge of the real estate industry is incredibly valuable and she has developed an extensive realtor network providing maximum exposure for properties I’ve listed with her. I always feel that my properties are getting maximum exposure and attention!

– Jeremy K

Jamie is a true professional. Her knowledge of the industry is unmatched. She communicated with me every step of the way and I felt very reassured that I was making the best decisions I could make. I would highly recommend Jamie and her team of professionals.

– Sean W

Jamie was a great communicator. She provided feedback from potential buyers very promptly. Jamie had a very good feel for the market and helped us price the house correctly. I enjoyed working with Jamie and would recommend her to potential sellers (already have).

– Mark L.

Gina and Jamie provided exceptional customer service during the entire home purchase and sale. I was very impressed with their diligence and thoroughness. I would recommend them and their services to everyone I know. My fiancé and I were able to relax and enjoy both the sales of our existing homes and the purchase of our new home. Thank you, Gina and Jamie, for a very positive experience!

– John S

My realtor Lindsey Rose was absolutely excellent. She picked me up as a client during a holiday ( July 4th) and was able to get me in to see the home I purchased the next day. She had a purchase offer ready by noon that day. She was great at explaining the buying process and what each step entailed. She was always reachable for any questions, even when she was on vacation. Couldn’t have been happier with her service. Would easily recommend her and her team to anyone I know looking to buy a home.

– Christopher A.

MacKensey and the Jamie Powers Team are awesome! After having our house on the market for over 7 months with another realtor, we signed on with the Jamie Powers Team and had multiple offers within 3 weeks.

– Chris M

Well after trying two other realtor’s and not getting anywhere, a friend referred me to Howard Hanna / The Powers team ( MacKensey). Everything was just as I expected. From signing the contract to the photos !! All went very quickly! Good luck to this beautiful family and thank you so very much to MacKensey and the entire Power’s team !!! You are all very educated and very professional !! Keep up the great work! I would definitely refer you to anyone I know, And maybe someday I will need your services again.

– John L

Thanks (MacKensey) for all the help so far on the sale of my house and us finding our dream home too!

– Dennis J

Lindsey is by far the best realtor friend you can find. She will get to know you and your interest and find the house that will best equip your needs and wants! She won’t pressure you into buying an expensive house. She fights for what you want even if there are problems she won’t back out of the offer she will move forth and find a better route to get the house of your dreams for you at any cost. She becomes a friend before and after the house closes. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

– Bobby H

Lindsey is a top-shelf professional; knows her stuff; and, goes above and beyond the norm of “just buying” a condo! Pleasant, personable, reliable, honest are just some of the accolades that best describe Lindsey. After coming off a more than 2-month cash purchase of another condo with another realtor; Lindsey made this condo purchase exceptionally smooth that resulted in closing and title in 12-days! Awesome! Interested in home or condo buying – Lindsey should be your choice of realtor agent! You will not be disappointed; as Lindsey will meet, but, mostly exceed your expectations. Period!

– Tom M

My husband and I met Lindsey as a seller at an open house. We were impressed by her professionalism, knowledge and great personality. She asked many pertinent questions on the type of house we were looking to purchase. That one was not the right one, but over the next several months she sent us listings she came across that she thought would be of interest. Since we were downsizing, we had much work to do prior to selling our old home. She was a computer whiz, and even listed many of our items for sale on social media! No realtor that we’ve had in the past would go above and beyond like that. Lindsey sold that home, and then found us our “perfect smaller home.” We love that she was prompt at returning texts and emails, offered helpful opinions and made the home buying and selling process as easy as it could be. There are so many realtors in the area, but Lindsey Rose should be your top choice!

– Todd and Sharon L

We met Lindsey at an open house in Medina back in the winter. I knew from the moment I met her, I wanted her to be our Realtor! She really made us feel as though we were her only clients. She was very prompt, professional and helpful during each step of selling our old house and buying a new one. She even strategically planned an entire day of looking at homes with me….16 total! Although it was a long and tedious process, Lindsey was by our side until the day we got our keys! She goes above and beyond and truly loves what she does. I love that we gained a new friend throughout this process! Thanks for everything Lindsey!

– Megan and Andrew Acord
