After my dad died in early December, I was faced with the daunting task of dealing with his estate and, especially, selling his home in Ivy Hill. Fortunately, I was referred by several people to Jane and her daughter, Kate, and I am lucky that I was. Jane and Kate made the process simple and effective. By early Feb, my dad's home was sold and the transaction completed under terms and conditions more than fair for everyone involved. She and Kate provided expert advice, got the home ready to go on the market (which I could not do since I live across the country) and completed the sale flawlessly. Most impressive is their expert understanding and deep knowledge of the Lynchburg market. I would not hesitate to recommend Jane and Kate for any type of real estate transaction. They are the best!
We purchased our new-construction home in Lynchburg through Jane in 2009. We were transferring into the area and could only look for homes on weekends. Jane spent a long holiday weekend with us, 12 hours each day, showing us a large selection of properties. Once we decided on the new construction, Jane represented us with the builder, ensuring everything was perfect before the closing. After 12 years, when it was time to sell, we immediately sought Jane's assistance, and once again she came through for us. Showings began immediately, we received multiple offers within days and Jane negotiated a fair agreement for both sides that went to closing quickly. I recommend Jane and her team unconditionally. Exceptional professionalism and experience!
We have worked with Jane on numerous transactions relating to both selling and purchasing homes. She and her staff are true professionals, advocates, and friends. We offer the strongest recommendation possible for Jane and her team; they are top notch.
Jane's enthusiasm and can-do style is infectious! Just when you think something is not going to work-out, just sit back and watch Jane make it happen! She has an uncanny ability to solve problems to everyone's satisfaction and does it with a smile on her and everyone's faces! I'd put Jane up against any Realtor/Broker on the planet.
The market was tricky for sellers. Jane made it work. I was well aware that a-next-weeks-sale was exceedingly unlikely, and everyone selling on a slow market wishes for a fast sell, but the house sold faster than I had myself prepared for.
Most of all, and the credits here belong to Jane! Once we had an offer on the house, she did all in her power to not let it go by the few little bumps in the road such as my unavailability caused by a business trip. Even after the sale, she provided a much appreciated barrier, and protected the sale.
I appreciated her candid and open ways. While not overbearing, Jane kept staying on top of the whole process throughout. She and her office staff handled all in a professional and yet very personable manner.
I would recommend her highly to everyone wanting to sell a house, and would use her again if my ways take me back in this direction.
Jane was very professional and knowledgeable about the area. She listened to our requests for a home and got us in the perfect home. I highly recommend Jane.
The staff at Blickenstaff & Co.are second to none in regard to understanding your needs, attention to details, marketing, and just being there to make sure the little things get done during the process of buying or selling a home. We had them represent us on both ends of the process; when we bought our home 8 years ago, and again when we sold it last month. Perhaps most impressive is their work ethic and how the staff work so well as a team, with different staff able to contribute to satisfying your concerns and questions as they arise. Whenever an issue arises they don't hesitate to communicate with you to insure clarity for everyone involved. They are undoubtedly the standard by which any real estate agency should be measured.
We listed our home with Jane Blickenstaff at Blickenstaff and Company in late October 2012. We discussed price and she recommended a price within the range that a professional appraiser stated where it should sell. Jane stated it would probably sell in February or March. Well, she did too good of a job since we had several offers for the house in late November. Jane and her staff took us through the appraisal and inspection process as painlessly as possible. The closing for us was a nonevent (we signed two pieces of paper prior to the closing date and we had our check the same day of the closing. Would I use Jane and Blickenstaff and Company again to buy or sell my house in the Lynchburg area? You bet we would.
Jane is the best!!!!!! She was very helpful every step of the way. She is professional and worked hard for us! We had a difficult property to sell, and after three years on the market with other realtors, Jane brought us a cash offer within several months of listing with her. It was an offer we couldn't refuse! We were so impressed with her, we used her to purchase our new house as well. I would not hesitate to use her again!!! She made what could've been a stressful and difficult time, very, very easy!!!! She did all the work and we focused on settling into our new house!!
I was amazed at the knowledge that Jane has of the Lynchburg area. Once we gave her our requirements and amount that we were willing to pay for a home, she went to work finding us the perfect place. We are extremely happy and our children love the neighborhood. Job well done Jane!!
