About Jackie Safran

Client Reviews

Read what others are saying about Jackie Safran.

"We first met Jackie in January 2017 after contacting her to see a home listed in her area. This was the first time my fiancee and I were about to buy a home so it was safe to say we were nervous about the whole ordeal. Jackie was able to answer some of the questions over the phone and invited us to her office so she could explain the entire process of buying our first home.

We felt immediately at ease. We saw how Jackie was very knowledgeable in her trade as well as the area. She was very kind and patient with us as we pestered her with multiple questions. She showed us some of the areas that would be the best for us to live in. As we went through multiple homes, she was honest in telling us if she spotted potential issues or that the house was simply not the right fit.

All this to say, Jackie's customer service is simply out of this world and would recommend anyone to contact her if they require to buy or sell a home."

Zillow Rating:  

Nick & Sophia

They say buying a home is a horrific experience, but Jackie disproved that completely. I cannot say enough about her honesty, responsiveness, patience and care. She understood our needs and helped us balance our dreams with our budget. I deeply appreciated her ability to say "this is not the home for you" and her willingness to get out with us every weekend to hunt through inventory and our own uncertainty. Once we found a home we had a drawn out negotiation with the Seller and we always felt like Jackie had our best interests at heart. Buying a home is not horrific, but it is an ordeal and I'd recommend people go through it with Jackie every time.

When it came to selling our original home, Jackie understood how much our home meant to us.  She raised the standard of what it means to be a "full service" Realtor!  We will recommend her whenever we can.  We are also very happy in the new home she helped us to find.

Jackie, we were very lucky to have found you!

Chris & Stu Mozlin

Jackie worked seamlessly with us through the entire process of selling our home. Her approach was so professional and thorough, working in partnership with us from staging to pricing our house. She was always friendly and available, no matter how many questions we had. We were able to sell our house within 5 days after 5 offers. We were also very lucky that she chose to help us find a new home, taking us on numerous rides to the area we had chosen. Even though we thought at times that we had found the right house, she usually would show us just a couple more and in the end, that made a big difference. After seeing many of our picks more than once, we did find the perfect house for us.

I have recommended Jackie’s services to many people because she is so professional and works with her clients as friends. She made the selling of our home of 45 years as easy for us as possible. We trusted her and we always felt that we were in good hands.

Jackie is a pro and we would recommend her to anyone moving into the Westfield and surrounding areas to Buy, Sell or Rent, which we have done all three with her. When we were moving to the area from Baltimore we have absolutely NO knowledge of New Jersey, except the bad jokes. Jackie showed us there is much more to New Jersey and Central Jersey than outsiders are aware of! She has a love and passion about the area herself and is very knowledgeable of all there is to offer.

Just as importantly Jackie presented us with options within our search requirements and immediately knew when to rule out a property and not waste our time. She knew which communities would serve our family and children best and ended up selling us our dream home!

Very impressive to us was that Jackie also stays very engaged with learning the new trends in real estate – how to present the information in useful ways. Particularly using technology to satisfy us as consumers who can get information on homes for sale from everywhere, anytime – online, on our smart phone or tablet.

When it came time to sell our home, she assisted us with the staging and marketing and we sold for a great price in a weakening market, receiving 2 competing offers on our home.

We both recommend and would use Jackie again without hesitation to buy or sell again in Westfield or surrounding communities.

Randal & Jeana S

I became aware of Jackie Safran through her market analyses and updates. Jackie is widely recognized as an outstanding realty professional with many years of experience. When I met her in person, I was struck by her sensitivity – and her style.

Jackie had a very keen sense of my needs – and my anxieties. She told me several times: „I want you to relax“. And indeed,  as soon as she took over, things went very smoothly. Jackie offers high-class services that no one else I know of in the field can compare with. Her stager did miracles for our home, and the photographer produced wonderful images. She herself suggested a home  price that brought us six offers in only four days.

In short: having Jackie at my side and following her advice, granted me the financial success that I was hoping for, without losing my calms. Jackie is a hard worker and always available. I was able to discuss any matter with her. She has very high standards, great class and impeccable morals. When she told me “I want only the best for you“,  she truly meant it and acted accordingly.

My husband and I had a FANTASTIC experience with Jackie and we are thrilled to recommend her to anyone who is looking for an agent.

She is very smart, sharp-witted and personable (one who makes the sometimes arduous process of looking for a home enjoyable!), sensitive to the needs and desires of her clients and she tells it like it is. She is very accessible, a creative thinker, will go to the mattresses for her clients and is the type of person that you’d want on your side when going through the ups and downs of searching for the right place to call home, one of the more significant decisions one makes in life.

I wholeheartedly recommend Jackie Safran and can’t say enough good things about her!

Give her a chance and you’ll see that my description of her is 100% accurate.

When my husband and I were searching for a house, we met Jackie and at first were looking in Edison and Metuchen.

It wasn’t long before Jackie suggested we look in Westfield, citing what a wonderful community and school system the town boasted.

With the help of Jackie, we found our dream home in Westfield. What’s better is that over 5 years has passed and we are still in contact with Jackie. She’s offered us real estate advice during the downturn as well as tips and suggestions for different resources in our town. She even recommended her cleaning lady to us!

When you use Jackie to help you find your home, you get more than a realtor, you get a fantastic community resource and friend.

Cari & David D

Jackie helped my husband and I purchase our very first home.

When a few years later we were looking to expand our family and needed more space, she was there again to help us sell that home and purchase something that was perfect for us. It was a tough market, but she worked day in and day out to help us market our property and show it as best we could. When we were looking at houses, she must have showed us every house on the market in our town! Jackie is extremely hardworking, honest, and trustworthy. You can always reach her anytime day or night, which is important – buying and selling homes is stressful enough without waiting to hear back from your realtor when you have something that needs immediate attention. I would recommend Jackie to anyone looking to buy or sell in NJ!!!

Kevin & Katie W

We first met Jackie 16 years ago when we were selling our first home and looking for a larger home.  What we most enjoyed about working with Jackie was that she actually listened to and honored our requests regarding selling our home and the purchase of a new home.

Jackie always went the extra mile to make sure our home was visible to the greatest number of people.

She is a very professional and personable individual, knows her market areas thoroughly, and  is scrupulously honest.   Jackie always looks out for her client’s best interests.  She treated our home with respect and made sure that everyone else did as well.  Her knowledge of the Real Estate business and the contacts that she has cultivated over the years make her a formidable Agent whether you are buying or selling.

It was with this in mind that there was no question who would represent us when we put that home on the market at a time when homes in our price range were not selling due to the economy.  Jackie was very candid with us regarding our prospects of selling the house and getting the price we sought.  None the less, she had wonderful pictures taken of every room including the exterior of the house and immediately put it on the web.  She was always available to answer questions and when we had 2 bidders who wanted the house she was very careful in vetting both potential buyers and making recommendations to us.

If anyone has any questions regarding our experience with Jackie Safran, we would be more than happy to speak with them.

Barbara & Jay V

After having our home on the market for months, we were very discouraged with the market and were investigating the possibility of renting which was our last option. When we first met, Jackie's optimism  was very encouraging, her marketing strategy was on the money and her vision on what work was needed to be done helped get us ready.

When we hit the market again, we received several offers in the first two weeks and the house was sold shortly thereafter.

Jackie has the pulse of today’s market and we would like to thank her.

Ellen and Bob Lee

We employed Jackie to buy our current house and sell our condo.

We were so glad we found Jackie as she was a tremendous help in both finding a house for us as well as selling our old place.

What most impressed us about Jackie was that she was so patient throughout the whole buying process.  She is very knowledgeable about her market area and was patient in showing us house after house, giving us advice on what to look for and what to avoid.  Jackie never pressured us into buying a house and eventually she helped find the perfect house for us.  What was helpful was that she was always available by phone or email if we ever had a question.

She really does go the extra mile as we’ve experienced first hand. Before closing, we found that a gas leak hadn’t been fixed, so she waited with us in the house with no heat for almost 7 hours until the gas company came and fixed the leak.

We were also impressed with her marketing plan for selling our condo. She is very tech savvy, which is important in this day and age, as more and more buyers use the internet to help them buy a house. Our brochures and website came out beautifully. Everyone who saw it was impressed. Most importantly, we were able to get under contract in less than a month in a tough market.
 
After the long house buying and selling process, it was sad to say goodbye to Jackie, who had became a part of our lives. Our kids still remember and talk fondly about Ms. Jackie to this day.

Reference for terrific New Jersey Realtor

If you decide you want to see something in Central New Jersey, I highly recommend chatting with Jackie Safran about it.   Kathryn and I were very happy with her help in finding our current home in Metuchen in 2003.

She’s realistic and sensible, not pushy at all, but very effective at what she does.

We’ve stayed connected with Jackie over the years and recently she has been very helpful giving us advice about current market conditions and how to get our home ready for re-sale.

Kathryn & Tom B

Jackie has helped us purchase two homes over the past six years and neither of those deals were for the faint of heart.

If you’re looking for an honest but tenacious advocate who will take the time to do what’s right we suggest that you immediately program Jackie into your speed dial.

Her innovative use of technology and her negotiation skills will give you a leg up whether you’re purchasing or selling.

We will continue to recommend her to all of our friends

Field Family

We have known Jackie since February 2005. She was referred to us by our friends who had very high regards for her. She successfully helped us find and close on our first home in North Edison in 2006.

Jackie has a very good understanding of the real estate market in central NJ.

When we started looking, we were looking for a home in the towns of Westfield, Scotch Plains and North Edison,. She is very well versed in these towns  – to the extent that she provides feedback about streets and neighborhoods that only locals would know. Her knowledge helped us zero in on the neighborhood of our choice.

She is very well respected by her peers and has a wide network of professionals that she works with. When it was time for closing, Jackie helped us by referring home inspectors, attorneys and mortgage specialists. She provided us with several references for each of them with the pros and cons of working with each of them. While none of these were binding, having the choices definitely helped us. In particular, the home inspector she referred was so good that he was also hired by the sellers of our home.

All through the home buying process, we found Jackie to be very objective of serving our interests.

She is patient and we never felt any pressure to buy or make a decision that we were not comfortable with. In other words, she let us find our home. At all times we found her to be prompt and courteous and willing to go the extra yard to help find us information. (when she didn’t have it).

Shobna & Kiran Banga

It’s said that selling a house ranks near the top of the list of life’s most stressful experiences. That’s true, but a knowledgeable and capable realtor can make all the difference between smooth sailing and disaster.

Jackie Safran is that Realtor.

It was Jackie’s savvy and experience that guided us successfully through the process. Her advice was right-on – every time. She knew how to price the house to get people interested in looking at it. In a tough market for sellers, we had lots of showings and multiple offers, while other houses in our area just sat without any activity. We even got more for our house than we asked for!

We hear horror stories from our new neighbors in the active-adult community we moved to and think to ourselves, “Jackie warned us about that. Jackie didn’t let that happen to us.”

We can’t say enough good things about Jackie. She knows her business, she works tirelessly on her clients’ behalf and is always there to offer reassurance and advice. I can’t imagine selling (or buying) a house without the assistance of a realtor, and I can’t imagine that realtor being anyone other than Jackie Safran.

Joe & Eileen Kosiner

We wanted to convey our deepest and most sincere gratitude for helping us find our home. You made the entire process so smooth and especially unintimidating for first-timers like us. Without you, we would probably still be house hunting! We appreciate all the time you spent with us, the countless phone calls and your patience – how could we have weathered the oil tank debacle without your calming words!

Anna-Maria & Peter K

When my partner and I first met with Jackie because we were planning to move from New Hope, Pa to the Metuchen area, we had not even sold our house at that point. Little did we know that it would take about 9 more months to sell in Pa so that we could seriously look in NJ.

Throughout that entire time, Jackie worked patiently and professionally with us, providing counseling and occasionally some much needed comic relief when we thought we would never be able to move on with our lives.

Everything worked out very well for us and we are now happily living in a great house in Metuchen, NJ. Jackie’s guidance through the process was outstanding at all times, she made us feel like we were her only clients (even though we knew full well that we were not!). She gave us very personalized attention and carefully advised us when she felt we were headed towards a bad decision.

I have and will continue to recommend Jackie whenever I can and even though I hope never to move again would unquestionably use her professional services again.

Carol Pepe

As first-time buyers buying a home can be a daunting task.

Jackie Safran was patient and pleasant as she steered us through the process helping us to figure out what it was we were looking for. The house hunting with Jackie turned out to be more enjoyable than we thought it would be, even for my husband. We eventually found a lovely little split level house that we fell in love with and bought.

Edna & Burl A

I was already thinking to call you. We often talk about you, even my kids still remember you. We are so grateful and thankful to you that you helped us to get such a good house. We are so happy here. We got everything we were looking for. Kids are very happy, very good schools and excellent neighborhood.

I know it is so late to say thank you to you but perhaps it is never too late!

Kamran & Farah N

Every time I see your mailings I smile just thinking of you.  I have to say, Rebecca and I could definitely be your advertising team! We are so happy in our home, and I am so happy that you were OUR realtor!

I always hear people complaining about house-hunting, how arduous and awful… I never thought that we would be able to own a house, and I was very scared of the process of buying one… the mortgage, lawyers, negotiating, etc… You were really knowledgeable and so KIND to us.

If we did not say thank you enough at the time, we would really like to take the opportunity to thank you again now!!  We are so in-love with our home and we are grateful to you!

Additionally, we are so pleased with all of the other professionals that you recommended to us during our process.

Sarah Tomasello

We are so happy with our house and our neighborhood in Berkeley Heights. We have a great street with lots of kids. They take the bus together and play in the yards after school. Everyone we have met here is friendly and down to earth. This move far exceeded my expectations and I can’t thank you enough for all of your help and guidance in helping us to sell our house and getting us here.

Lisa & Paul C

First of all, we’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for Jackie’s professional handling of the sale of our house. Before entering the market, we didn’t realize that there was such a difference among realtors. Our experience with Jackie has changed our view completely. Jackie showed sensitivity and confidence that far exceeded other realtors we had worked with earlier.

Jackie was very honest, sweet natured and calming.

She gave us a remarkable presentation about her plan to market, list and sell our home. She understood the ever-changing market, did a detailed market analysis and provided us a folder (with a picture of our house on the cover) containing all materials for different stages of house selling. She advised us how best to present our home to prospective buyers. Once listed on the multiple listing service, she immediately notified others realtors of the listing. She gave our listing great exposure through neighborhood mailings and an online virtual tour, which was invaluable for out-of-town lookers.

We are particularly impressed with Jackie’s negotiation skills during buyer’s offer presentation. She was patient and calm. She spoke softly, but with well-chosen words & full of details/stats. It was obvious that the buyer’s agent was impressed as well. We relocated soon after the house went under contract. Jackie ran the rest of home-selling process on our behalf: the inspection, finding handy man/overseeing repairs, pro-actively being present for appraisal, being present for buyer’s walkthrough, etc. Everyday she relayed information and feed-back to us. We felt as if we were her only clients because of the many hours and attentions to details she managed to provide. We won’t forget our phone calls and her assurance that everything would be all right.

We highly recommend Jackie. She is a very hardworking/ knowledgeable agent who goes above and beyond to help, and would certainly bring successful results to her clients.
