Jackie is a detail oriented real estate agent with emphasis on support and concern in a difficult real estate deal. I hired Jackie in May 2009 to help sell my home in a difficult year. She was there with me through the entire difficult and trying process. When I felt all was lost in the deal, she stood firm and managed to get the deal complete. She was great to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

I was hoping for an aggressive, intelligent agent, and I immediately knew I had found one with Jackie. Absolutely no time was wasted on setting up a time to look at homes. Upon my first phone call to her, Jackie, on that same day, set up two internet sites that were personalized to my specs for my home search. I never felt neglected or overlooked by Jackie, even though my price range was somewhat modest. She always made me feel like I was the most important client she had. Whenever I had a question about a home I was interested in or about escrow procedures, she was always quick to find an answer. Her service-oriented demeanor made her so easy to work with. I really feel that because of her tenacity, we were able to find exactly what we wanted in a very short period of time. I would definitely recommend Jackie to anyone who was actively searching for a new home and would obviously use her services again. Her professional and friendly manner was refreshing and appreciated, and made this my best home-buying experience ever.

Jackie handled both the sale of our existing home and the purchase of our new one. I do not think one could find a Realtor with a better disposition, or more caring about her clients. Jackie went out day after day looking at houses with us, and she really understood what we were looking for. We did a lot of online looking, but Jackie drove us up to our new home; we never saw it online. All I can say about the sale of our existing home was that Jackie was a tiger. It sold fast, at our price, and Jackie covered all the bases. Jackie was a joy to work with.


I met Jackie about a year ago at one of her listings in Lake Forest. I have been active in Real Estate for nearly 40 years, encountering many individuals licensed in Real Estate. Jackie is one TRUE PROFESSIONAL! I can appreciate how Jackie brilliantly implements her diverse professional traits as a civil engineer, artist, and Real Estate Professional. Her KNOWLEDGE of the industry is phenomenal! We have persevered a plethora of debacles characteristic of the current market because of Jackie’s innate ability to NEGOTIATE on multiple levels. She is amazing! Her TEAMWORK approach to problem solution has championed several difficult purchases for us during the last year. Jackie is consistently CURRENT with the industry and EDUCATES her clients with detailed written explanations in response to any question that arises. She also NETWORKS exceptionally well with other professionals. I recommend Jackie Gibbins to anyone interested Real Estate!!

I am writing this letter of recommendation for Jackie Gibbins because of the OUTSTANDING service we have received from her during the process of selling my parents’ home. The very difficult decision was reached to sell my parents’ home in January 2014. They have owned their home for more than 55 years, are the original owners and raised their 3 children and had countless family celebrations there. It was always my parents’ dream to pass their house on to family members, however it was not something that was not financially feasible. It was a devastating decision that would rock my parent’s world. Jackie was contacted by my dad, because she had sold two homes on their street. It was a call to someone we knew absolutely nothing about, but in the first meeting with Jackie, we knew we had made the right decision. She was compassionate about their situation and was extremely sensitive to the emotions that they would be going through during this process. She took her time with the staging of their home, knowing how difficult it would be to make changes to a home that someone had lived in for more than 55 years. She laid out a generous timeline that would work to meet our time frame that we needed to work within. She kept my parents informed and more importantly, she kept me informed (which was a necessity due to my parents’ inexperience in the real estate market.) Her professionalism was above and beyond any expectations. She scheduled showings and made it a point to be there, so that the buyer could ask any questions. There aren’t enough positive adjectives in the English language to describe Jackie’s service to our family. Our entire family is grateful for her and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone considering selling or purchasing a home. I invite anyone to contact me directly if they need any additional information.

We are finally able to take a moment to put into words how happy and grateful we are that you were able to find our dream home. We had been dreaming of something like this for a long time, and you were able to help realize our dream. Your professionalism and patience allowed us to feel comfortable with our search. Your enduring energy and spunk we felt were very unique. You made this a great learning experience. We will recommend you to everyone!

I contacted Jackie when I knew I was interested and serious about purchasing a new home. She was very professional throughout the entire experience. I never felt once that she had forgotten about me or was not putting my needs first. This was my fifth home purchase. And she made me feel so much more at ease than any other agent ever has. When you work with Jackie, you know you are working with someone who truly has knowledge of the big picture and is honestly wanting to make a great home for her client. She is a treat to work with overall. She will always have tremendous follow-up. You will not be disappointed with your results if you contact her!

We just wanted to thank you one more time for everything you did to make things happen for us….and most of all your great attitude!

Thank you for everything. You are an awesome realtor. Thank you for investing so much of your time helping us buy the home of our dreams. Thank you for all the emails updating us, the time invested with the rental, and on and on. It is apparent you put your heart into your job!

It was such a blessing to find you! I couldn’t have had a better real estate experience! Thank you for your time, expertise and patience. You were a pleasure to work with throughout the sale. You really made my life so much easier. Who said moving is stressful?
