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

Many years ago Barbara Wilson, Howard Hanna helped me when purchasing a home for my daughter. I knew then if I ever needed a real estate agent in the future I would definitely call on her...and 20 plus years later I did. My experience recently with Barbara Wilson, Howard Hanna was superior. Barb kept me informed every step of the way. I sold and purchase a home with Barbara's guidance and am extremely grateful for her support in making this a smooth process. I would definitely recommend Howard Hanna to family and friends.

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.

Well after trying two other realtor’s and not getting anywhere, a friend referred me to Howard Hanna / The Wilson 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.

Barbara Wilson did a fantastic job. We bought a house in Ohio while still living in NJ and everything was done over the phone or by Face Time. Barbara was very helpful and patient with all that was happening. When we finally did get to see our new home, we loved it more than we thought we would. It was a wonderful experience and we are very grateful to Barbara for all her help.

– Jack S.

Barbara Wilson is prompt, friendly, helpful, diplomatic, and professional. No wonder she is highly successful! She aggressively marketed and sold my unique property, and I recommend Barbara and her team highly.

We wanted to thank Barbara for helping us find our new home. Moving back to Ohio was a big decision and it was so helpful to have an agent who is so knowledgeable about the area. Barb was recommended to us by a friend and we plan to pass it along anytime we hear someone needs a great real estate agent.

- Robert & Sheila in Medina, OH

When we decided to sell our house, we knew Barbara Wilson and her staff were the team for the job. They were always so prepared, professional and accessible when helping us buy the house that we knew we wanted the same quality of help in selling it. We can't thank Barbara enough for all she's done for us over the years!

Thank you for the time you put into selling our home. You, and your whole team, are like "super-heros" that got us out of a jam so we may have a little tranquility. Thank you for being a pleasure to work with.
