Jamie is smart, street-wise and straight-forward in her communications. She won't hesitate to tell you what she sees in each house you walk thru.....the good and the bad. She also intuitively understands when to be quiet and just listen, which is a rare combination of gifts. We also found her warm, friendly personality comforting in the midst of stressful negotiations. All this wrapped up in what seems to be boundless energy; I honestly don't know how she does it with also being a Mom. I kinda feel sorry for those realtors who negotiate against her...they just don't stand a chance. We observed this when the Selling Party tried some under-handed maneuvering, in our opinion, and Jamie opted to not react but play the waiting game...which was driving us nuts...but her instincts proved correct, their bluff was called and they gave in and we got a better deal. Nobody stands a chance against Ms. Jamie Bates. We highly recommend her.
