Testimonials

Hello, everyone! I wanted to share with you some of the wonderful things my clients have expressed in regards to my services!

 "A big Thank You to you for handling the sale of our home in Tellico Village.  The way you took our listing made it an easy way to go, since we were living in Florida.  Jan, you made great suggestions and listened to all of our questions and wishes.  Keeping us informed, every step of the way, with phone calls and e-mails.

You even made is possible for us to not be there for the closing, how painless for us.  Yes. You were always spot-on in handling everything.

If anyone is looking for a Realtor who can do it all with a smile, enthusiasm, patience, creative, and understanding they need to look no further than Jan Tucker, the ultimate professional.  Thank you for your outstanding service!" Cynthia & Bob Pollock - Tellico Village & Florida

"To anyone looking for a Realtor we recommend Jan Tucker.  We suddenly decided to sell our house and move to an apartment and were totally unprepared to put the house on the market.  Two weeks after we contacted Jan the house was ready to put on the market and two weeks after that it sold.  Jan guided us through the process with excellent advice about preparing the house for showing and always responded immediately to our questions and needs.  She was always thoroughly prepared for each step of the selling process.  Her pleasant personality and efficient communication skills make her a pleasure to work with."  Betty & Ron Moore, Tellico Village

"After interviewing several candidates, I selected Jan Tucker to represent out family in the sale of or parents' Townhome in Chota Shares.  With my having to oversee the sale from the Boston area, Jan provided the professional assistance in making sure that all aspects of the sale were presented and communicated clearly and expeditiously.  Because of my absence, Jan went out of her way to facilitate all required showing, as well as, when necessary, to coordinate required access to the Townhome for necessary minor repairs and inspections.  Jan made the process as effortless as possible, in a professional and pleasant manner.  We couldn't have been happier with or selection of Jan and with the ease of the process in light of our absence.  Thank you for your hard but thoughtful work."  Daniel Case, Massachusetts, son of Tellico Village residents for 35 years

 "Jan Tucker is an exceptional real estate agent.  From the very beginning, Jan explained the process of selling ones home and made it easy to understand.

She explained every step from the pricing of the home to highlighting the amenities of the property and preparing the property for the sale.  Jan made you feel like her only client was you.  If you had a question you could text or call her and she responded quickly.  From the beginning of listing the house, she took care to schedule the viewings with potential buyers at the convenience of the seller.  Whenever there was an offer, she immediately brought it to you to discuss the pros and cons of the offer.  During the house inspection phase, Jan made sure that everything that was required by the seller to be fixed was done in a timely manner. Jan provided a professional photographer to get pictures of the outside and inside of the house.  In addition, she wrote about the special features for each of the rooms, which she included in the house listing. One of the issues Jan helped on was the timing of the closings and the move from our house to our new home.  She made sure we did not have to move twice.  I highly recommend Jan Tucker be your real estate agent." Al & Maria Weiss - Tellico Village

“Anyone who has sold or purchased a home realizes that it can be an emotional time with frustrations & rewards for both the seller and the buyer.  It’s important that you select the right person to shepherd you through that experience.


Warren and I first met Jan Tucker, Principal Broker, Lakeside Real Estate Group, at the end of March 2019 when we interviewed her as a potential realtor for the sale of our home.  She presented her qualifications and experience in a friendly yet very professional manner.  Jan provided us with a detailed market analysis that included appropriate pricing and marketing strategies and how our home would best be presented to potential buyers.  We accepted her recommendations and are very pleased that our home sold the first day on the market with multiple offers.

If you’re looking for the consummate professional to market your home, we are pleased to highly recommend that you contact Jan Tucker.” Gretchen & Warren Allen, Tellico Village

“Jan

I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for all of the help in getting my house in Tellico Village sold not only quickly but with minimal effort on my part.   I was very impressed with your responsiveness and how quickly you not only showed the listing but the fact that you were observant and thoughtful of my needs throughout the process.  Only 8 days on the market before going under contract is phenomenal.  You made this process the easiest I have ever experienced, and I appreciate your professionalism and experience.  You are a wonderful Realtor® and person.” Dora Taggart, Tellico Village

“Jan:

We want to make sure you know how much we enjoyed working with you.  You are a true professional who knows her business, communicates quickly and effectively and just does a great job.  It was a pleasure working with you.  Thanks for all your hard work.”  Louann & Bob Cherry, Tellico Village

“Jan:

We really appreciate the work you did for us, attention to details, your preparation and communications, we are glad we chose you as our agent. Thank you.” Jerry & Helen Willis, Tellico Village

“Jan:

I wanted to thank you for making the sale of my home such an easy process.  Your very clear and patient explanation of all the details were such a help in getting me through the whole thing.  If I could remain in Tellico, I would surely recommend you to any potential seller – or buyer – to make the whole procedure as painless as you made it for me.  Thank you for getting me to where I am now and I wish you all the best in your own life and career.”  Jan Schneck, Tellico Village

“Jan has helped us with 5 real estate transactions on 3 pieces of property in Tellico Village. In all cases she has shown herself to be extremely knowledgeable about the local real estate market and very efficient in her work. Moreover, she is very personable and helpful with all aspects of each transaction, and prompt to respond to questions of all kinds. We recommend her very highly for all of your real estate needs.” Ray & Carole Green-Weishaupt,  Tellico Village

"Jan knew from the start that I was not totally committed to a move, but she did not in any way try to influence our decision either way.  As a matter of fact, right up to signing the contract, she told us that if the time was not right, or if we changed our minds, that was fine, we could all walk away. She answered every question we had regarding the market, the timing, the pluses and minuses of our home, competitive properties and anything else that we could think of.

Selling a house and moving is a stressful event, especially when topped off with a long distance relocation.  Jan truly realized that we experienced some angst and she worked hard to minimize it and relieve it as quickly and painlessly as possible.  She was the calm in our sea of anxiety.  She showcased our property and kept it front and center to the relevant buyers until the sale was made. She was always available to answer questions and she was always straight with us, even when it sometimes hurt.

When you sign with Jan, you are getting a real, sincere person with years of experience, a great knowledge of the market and the players and her commitment to do her absolute best for you.  I honestly don’t think she knows any other way.”  Jim & Mary Ann Valvoda, Tellico Village

“Dear Jan,

It is with absolute pleasure that I share my comments and experience in working with you.

With the sale of my property recently, I wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for the outstanding job you did in representing my interests throughout the sale of my home. You handled the process wonderfully. Your professionalism, thoroughness, knowledge, and dependability made the sale process so much easier from the beginning to the end. You have been a joy to work with, always going above and beyond. I would certainly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a great, hard-working, intelligent and effective realtor. You are very customer oriented and can always be relied upon to do what you say you will do.

From my personal experience in working with you and for your lifetime professional achievements in the real estate business, you set an example for all other realtors!

Thank you again for the excellent service you provided and I look forward to possible future endeavors.”

Very best to you,"  Kelle Kennedy, Tellico Village

“We went through the trauma of moving “up North” to be near our kids in our old age.  While moving is never pleasant at this stage of life it’s really tough, particularly the part about selling the old house.

 We had the good fortune to ask Jan Tucker of Lakeside Realty to sell our home.  Selling a house is always somewhat stressful but Jan did her absolute best to make things go smoothly.  From our first meeting she inspired our trust and confidence.  We were never disappointed in her service to us.  Always on time, always quick to return calls and always professional.” Mike & Mary Ellen Lynch, Tellico Village

“Jan Tucker did an exceptional job representing me in the sale of my home!  It only took 10 days to complete the acceptance of an offer and I was able to do this while I was traveling out of country.

After acceptance of the offer escrow closed in less than 30 days!  I was just amazed!  Throughout the whole process Jan could not have been more professional and responsive to any and all questions I had.

I truly believe that I could not have selected a better agent and person to represent me in this transaction!”

Thanks again! Steve Waggener, Tellico Village
