I began my business career in management with a nationally recognized company, which allowed me to gain experience in personnel management, budgeting, and establishing goals, I had a strong interest in sales and marketing, which lead me to begin the second phase of my career in advertising. I worked in radio, print, and billboard sales as an account manager for a variety of clients, both local and national. In 2000 I decided to take all of my past experiences in sales and marketing, along with my dedication to working with clients, into a career as licensed NC REALTOR. I have been successful in satisfying buyers with the purchase of primary and secondary homes, as well as satisfying sellers in selling residential, commercial, and vacant land properties.
My family and I moved from outside of Fayetteville, NC to Topsail Island fifteen years ago, where we reside on the island. We are boaters and continue to enjoy the Topsail Sound and Intracoastal Waterway, as it is convenient to the island for fishing, skiing, and relaxing sunset cruises. An added pleasure we have found by living on the island, is the dog friendly, wide open beach. Most importantly, Topsail Island is a magical place to raise a family. My son, Jared, had the privilege of learning to surf, paddle board, and kayak mostly all year round.
When it comes to our businesses, it is truly a family affair. I own Coastal Carolina Real Estate, to take care of buying and selling properties, and my husband, Jeff, owns Carolina Coast Contracting which specializes in building custom homes and remodeling existing homes on and around Topsail Island.
My office is located just off of the island, where it is easy to serve most any location on Topsail Island (Topsail Beach, Surf City, North Topsail Beach). In addition to serving all of Topsail Island, I am also adept at providing exceptional services to clients with needs in surrounding areas, such as Holly Ridge, Hampstead, and Sneads Ferry. My hours are very flexible in order to accommodate the needs of my diverse clientele.
I hope you enjoy Topsail Island as much as I do!
-- Jackie James is one of the best realtors hands down. Jackie is caring, hardworking, honest & always looks out for what best for her clients. You can't go wrong with having Jackie as your agent. Overall amazing lady!
-- Jackie was a wonderful realtor! We were first time homebuyers and she helped us through every step of the process. She even went above and beyond and helped pick siding colors, granite, etc for our new build home. Also, we are military so she advised us on buying a home that would be good for resale or rental property in the future which is important for our needs. She has extensive knowledge of the area and every aspect of home buying. We couldn't have done it without her!
-- Jackie James was all you could want in a real estate agent. She handled the sale of our condo from listing to handling offers to closing--very informative, thorough,persistent and timely. And a very pleasant person to deal with. Thanks a lot Jackie!!!!
-- Jackie James did a wonderful job selling my house. First with her ideas, photos, and enthusiasm, then during showings and the quickly offered contract, she was reassuring and efficient. Throughout the due diligence period and closing, she continued to be wise and helpful, consistently professional. I recommend Jackie James without reservation.
-- Jackie spent 3 long years trying to help me find the best home for my situation. Jackie never gave up on me, although I encountered numerous obstacles and many times it appeared I would never qualify to purchase a home. Jackie helped me with more than finding a home, she helped me in many areas that overlap the home purchase. She was creative and experienced in trying many different avenues to assist me. It was evident from the first meeting that Jackie was not just a realtor. Although extremely professional/knowledgeable/experienced, Jackie is truly in this business to help people, she is not a typical realtor/salesman. You will not find a better realtor.
-- Jackie was all in from the moment we met her. Her extensive knowledge of the area is truly amazing. We were buyers from out of town, and she guided us over each and every step, from looking at properties that matched our budget to securing the loan. She was with us every step of the way. We she called me from the deck of the home we now own, we were in Ohio, and she said "This is the real deal"...I could hear it in her voice and knew I could trust her. Jackie James is the "real deal".
-- It was truly a pleasure working with Jackie. She found the perfect home for us. I would defiantly recommend her to help with buying or selling a home.
-- Jackie is the dream real estate agent. She allowed my husband and myself plenty of time to view houses and we never felt hurried. She was responsive to our questions, and promptly researched the answers to questions that she couldn't answer. She returned phone calls in a timely manner and never seemed impatient with calls...sometimes I called her a couple times a day. She also helped locate trades people to help with renovations, and was a very effective manager of that process. I highly recommend her as an agent. She also is cheerful, positive and very pleasant to be around. Thank you, Jackie.
-- Jackie James is extremely professional! Although she works with multiple clients simultaneously, she makes you feel like you are her only priority. She was prompt and was always looking out for our best interest. Nothing but good hints to say about Jackie. We will be using her when the time comes to sell our home. I'd recommend everyone to use her and her new company for all your real estate needs!
