Testimonials

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

"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

“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

“After residing in Tellico Village for the last 13 years my wife and I decided to explore a return to our roots and our children in Ohio.  This was not an easy decision as the urge to return North was much stronger in my wife than it was in me.  We did some research on brokers in the area and on the strong recommendation of two close friends, chose Jan Tucker of Lakeside Real Estate Group.

 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

 

"We recently 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 Real Estate Group 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

"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

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

“Choosing you to sell my home in Tellico Village  was the best decision I could have made. We had lots of surprises and challenges but you handled them like the true professional that you are. Thank you for always updating me on every showing and just for being a joy to work with.”

Sue Woodrup, Tellico Village

“My name is Pam McAfee and my husband and just finished a closing using THE ONE AND ONLY REALTOR I CAN SAY I LOVE EVEN MORE AFTER THE CLOSING PROCESS THAN BEFORE! Jan Tucker is an amazing professional to the finest points of all buying and selling needs that a prospective house seeker could ask for. Her attention to detail starts with the little things such as always being on time, getting back with all her clients in such a fast and proficient manner that it shocked me, and I am a former detail person from years in the teaching profession. It is difficult to beat me in the organization department!

Before even taking your listing she researches the area to be sure the seller has their home priced appropriately, as no one wants their home to sit there forever due to an inflated asking price. She brings you examples of various homes that have sold in Tellico Village that are comparatively the same in size, close location and amenities. You do not go into this process alone. She is with you each and every step of the way. She helps you through your worries and is like a "cheerleader" to keep the team moving forward toward the goal of a sale.

She also sends out a monthly news letter that gives ideas to help present your home the best as possible, that when in the trenches as a seller, you do not think of. My husband and I have moved many times in our 42 years of marriage, but Jan's newsletters always had new tips to help in selling, packing, moving and remembering to relax and go with the flow. I read them all. Also the seller gets weekly updates on how many people have looked at your home on the Internet. Once again, can I say "attention to detail"!

With Jan's excellent experience in research, pricing and helping us to prepare our home we listed at a proper price, had wonderful pictures to show our home on the Internet and two days after the pictures were uploaded to show our home, we received an offer from someone that now loves it as much as we did during the time we owned it.

My husband and my biased opinion is that Jan Tucker with Lakeside Real Estate Group is the best way to go.”

Sincerely,
Pam McAfee

"Jan Tucker is an absolutely professional Real Estate agent, a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend her! 

Over a long period of time, Jan was unbelievably patient and understanding with an ailing family member and his out-of-state family. She inspired trust with her honesty and great communication. She went above and beyond helping to oversee the property, inspections and repairs.

Jan offered top-notch professional advice and great insight; willingly answered all questions and concerns; and respected the decisions we made. She was truly a reliable partner in the intimidating process from beginning to end. Her friendly and pleasant attitude helped to put us at ease and be more comfortable throughout each phase of the real estate transaction.

Jan is hands-down the best realtor I have ever worked with. I whole-heartedly recommend her as the #1 realtor for selling/buying in Loudon!"

MaryAnn Hanley, Maryland 

"When we decided to put our Tellico Village home on the market, a friend recommended Jan Tucker. Because the house had no bedrooms on the main, we were worried it might sit on the market for months. Jan found a buyer for us, and within the first month we had a contract on our house. Jan knows the market, and she works with a high degree of professionalism to get the job done. Thanks, Jan, for making selling our house so easy!"

Rhonda Blevins, Kentucky

"Jan, 
Many of our friends recommended you when we started looking for a realtor. Now after having your assistance in selling our home, it is easy to see why you are so highly regarded. Your professionalism, high energy, aggressiveness, and friendliness not only sold our home quickly, but also developed a new friendship for Patti and me. Your business acuity and ability to help us work our way through the details of paperwork, inspections, and liability are invaluable for anyone navigating the world of real estate sales."
 
Thank you very much,
Bob and Patti Jones
Tellico Village
 

"After working with Jan as a buyer and a seller, all I can say is WOW! I was very impressed with Jan's professionalism, integrity, and personal attention. Jan is a first class, high caliber, real estate professional. I received her personal attention almost on a daily basis. She was always available for questions, and made me feel like I was her only client.

Jan gets it. This is a career for her, not a job. She focuses on continuing education, learning current market trends, house staging, and everything else involved with real estate. Her expertise in this field is outstanding and her patience is commendable.

I highly recommend her!"

John Fiedler

A Very Satisfied Customer

 “We heartily recommend Jan Tucker from Lakeside Real Estate Group to help you find a home or to sell yours. She recently was the listing agent on a townhome we purchased and listed our home which sold in under 40 days, thanks to her professional marketing, her attention to details, her negotiating skill and her hard work. She has a delightful personality and makes the whole process less stressful. We had several complications in both of our deals that she worked tirelessly to overcome to everyone's satisfaction.”

J & C Peyton – Tellico Village 

 "After trying to sell our home unsuccessfully with another local agent we decided to do our research better and this time find the very BEST REALTOR® when we listed our home again for sale. Our efforts paid off when we found Jan! She was professional and dedicated, honest and hardworking, and she sold our home quickly when others could not. Jan worked within our schedule and she truly cared about us as her clients. She responded quickly to all communications and always went the extra mile. It was truly a pleasure working with Jan and we would HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home." – D and M Vaughan

"My home sold two weeks after listing with Jan Tucker.  She explains the contract in detail, line by line.  She is conscientious, highly professional, extremely kind and interested in her client.  I was mindful of being fortunate to have selected the best person to work with me.  I highly recommend Jan." J. Hutchinson, Tellico Village.

“Jan is, hands-down, the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. From start to finish, she is exceptional in every way. With great energy and passion, she helped us find our retirement home and continued, after the purchase, to coordinate the follow-up with us. As out-of-town clients, she was incredibly helpful and reliable throughout the entire process. Thanks Jan!” M&A Peters, Illinois/Tellico Village

“I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with Jan Tucker-Vaughn. Throughout the entire process of selling our home, Jan was conscientious, motivated, very organized and prompt. One very important note is she acted in a very professional way within the selling period by keeping all communications between us confidential. Initially, we set out to find the best Realtor® in the area. We wanted someone with a lot of experience, a good reputation, and someone very familiar with the current market for selling our home at the optimum price. After an agreed timeframe, under difficult market conditions, we sold our home at an acceptable price. If we were to do it over again, we would definitely contract with Jan to sell our home. She has a wonderful personality and has proven to us that she is a winner. B&J Foss, Tellico Village

"Thank you for making the challenge of selling our home into a smooth, well-managed experience.  We appreciated your professionalism and know-how every step of the way.  From our first meeting, we were relieve by your genuine confidence and the great plan which led so quickly to success.  Just like us, Lakeside and the Tellico community is so very luck to have you.  D&J Vernon, Tellico Village

 “The Market Analysis that Jan prepared for us prior to listing our home was spot on. Jan is very detail oriented . . . she kept us informed throughout the entire process from the listing of our home to the closing on the sale. The virtual tour that she had prepared was very professional. We were on a cruise when we received the offer for our home. Jan contacted us with the offer and, thanks to her taking the extra steps involved by doing the negotiation via email, we were able to complete the acceptance of the offer later the same evening while we were at sea. We highly recommend Jan . . . she's a true professional and will work hard for you.” T&P Wood, Tellico Village

"Jan, From our first meeting with you in May we were both impressed with your knowledge of the business and your true professionalism.  You and the other agents at Lakeside Real Estate Group continued to keep us informed and completely comfortable during the selling process.  We will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family." L & J Goelz, Tellico Village.

"Jan, Jan and I would like to thank you for being our Realtor® here in the village.  We have been married for 52 years and in that time we have dealt with many realtors in buying and selling properties in different states.  You are by far the best Realtor® we have used and your professional manner in handling our recent sale was exceptional.  Thank you", J & R Weldon, Tellico Village.

"Dear Jan, Just had to write this note to tell you how much we appreciate all your time and efforts to sell our home.  You have become like a member of our family.  You have always been available to answer our concerns and keep us calm.  We feel completely spoiled by you. We would love to put you in our suitcase and take you with us to Ohio to help us find another home because we know for certain, we will never find another realtor and friend like you.  Your advertising was top notch, your attention to detail and legalities outstanding and the showing of our house was always done in a professional manner.  Thanks again for getting us through the stresses involved with selling a home." R & C Hegyi, Tellico Village

"Dear Jan, I wanted to thank you for your help on the sale of my home.  Your attention to detail, professionalism and concern for your customers was very impressive.  You were always available promptly and I know first hand that it's not always the case with other realtors. I've bought and sold homes many times and your representation was the best I have ever experienced.  I would recommend you to anyone looking for a home or selling a home.  Please feel free to use me as a reference any time.  I felt someone was representing my interests throughout the listing and sale process and I sincerely appreciated your efforts.  You do an excellent job and have an excellent knowledge of Tellico Village properties.  My sincerest thanks for your help and support." S. Lynden, Tellico Village

“Dear Jan, Thanks for helping us find our “dream home” in Tellico Village. We feel lucky that the house we really wanted was still available when we were ready to buy and your efforts made that happen. We had spent almost three years trying to find the right area to retire. After looking in a number of areas we started to look seriously in Tellico Village and several friends recommended you. Your knowledge of the area helped convince us Tellico Village was the right place for us. It was especially helpful that you only showed us houses that met our criteria so we were not so overwhelmed. Our moving experience could not have been better and we would certainly recommend you to anyone considering buying or selling a home in this area. We also want to thank you for all your help after we actually moved. It was certainly above and beyond the call of duty. Many thanks,” M & D Montgomery from Kingsport, TN

"Hello Jan, Do you have a frequent buyer program! We're delighted with our buying and selling experiences and your help every step of the way both as a Buyer's Agent and a Seller's Agent. it has been a most satisfying experience. Our decision to sell our second home and to buy a new primary home in Tellico is a testimony to the Tellico Village lifestyle. You make the process easy. It's pretty clear that you know your market and you make every effort to understand your client's needs to provide professional service as our guide through this awesome process of buying or selling a home. Thank you so much for helping to make this possible." T & M Murphy, Florida/Tellico Village

 "Hi Jan: Just a note to thank you for all your help. Dealing with you is a pleasure. Your attention to the smallest detail is very much appreciated. I have dealt with other real estate people in the past and they are not in the same league as you are. Your professionalism is second to none and your knowledge of the real estate business is very refreshing. You go way above and beyond the call of duty on behalf of your clients, by doing extra things other real estate agents would not even think of. In closing, my wife and I just want to thank you for all your help so far, and if we have real estate needs in the future you will be the one we call. Thanks again." R&C Nicholson, Michigan/Tellico Village

"Dear Jan: This is must a note to say "thanks again" for the fine work you did in helping us find just the right house in Tellico Village. We really appreciated your enthusiasm and patience in the way you worked with us to find the neighborhood we would enjoy and the house that would really work for us. We also appreciated your diligence in following up on all of the activities that go on between finding the right house and getting to the closing. We very much enjoyed working with someone who is very professional and who really knows the territory." J&B Martin, Tellico Village

"
Dear Jan: As you know from past experience in real estate, the selling of a house can be a nightmare for the owner. There are alot of lovely homes in Tellico Village looking for new owners. The trick is to match up the buyer and seller while the owner is still a normal thinking individual. We will be forever grateful to you for your hard work, constant good humor, ability to listen, and steadfast approach to selling our home. While the house was listed, you brought a steady stream of potential buyers to the house, and you always accompanied other realtors when they were showing it. When the offer was made we were traveling south for a vacation. We actually finalized the sale by cell phone and Western Union. We cannot thank you enough for your great work on our behalf. We will be happy to recommend your service to anyone who wants to sell a home. No one could have done a better job." F.D. & D Gibson, Tellico Village
