“Jessica and her team are amazing and go above and beyond!” “Jessica is professional, very prompt, and thorough!”
These are just a few of the many positive client comments about Jessica Ferris and her real estate team, Jessica Ferris Property Advisors at Keller Williams Realty Elite, located in Winston-Salem. Jessica Ferris has eleven years of experience as a REALTOR. She left a long and intense career in marketing to become a REALTOR after moving to Winston-Salem eleven years ago. This change in career choice is a decision with which she has been very happy. Real estate gives her the opportunity to help people, something she loves doing. She began her real estate career in 2008 and moved to full-time at the beginning of the 2009 recession. Some might think that a crazy decision, but Jessica saw it as a challenge and learned to be both creative and patient with the process.
After ten years as an independent REALTOR, Jessica decided to create a team of professionals with whom to work, giving her more time to enjoy and fulfill her love of raising her family. Working within a knowledgeable, experienced team, Jessica is assured that her clients are truly getting full service while making one of life’s most important decisions, that of buying or selling a home. Her team consists of a buyer’s agent, Jamie Gentry (from Elkin) who is also an attorney, and an executive assistant, Jodie Johnson (from CA), formerly a legal assistant. Combined with Jessica’s background in real estate and marketing, this team offers a depth of knowledge and experience.
Jessica values and invests in her clients and appreciates the ultimate act of confidence they show in her and her team. This is evidenced by clients returning to them for additional real estate needs, and by referring their friends and family as well. She understands that buying a home, for most people, is the number one most important investment they will ever make, financially, mentally, and emotionally. This often involves setting realistic expectations for their clients, as well as addressing unusual, complicated, or legal issues that may arise. Jessica and her team apply their vast knowledge to solve any unforeseen issues.
Jessica’s favorite aspect of real estate is getting to know and appreciate her clients. “I enjoy listing properties to utilize my marketing & advertising skills. I also find a great deal of satisfaction helping people find that special property to call home,” states Jessica. Jessica’s team works with sellers and buyers in Forsyth, Davie, Davidson, Stokes, Iredell & Mecklenburg counties, and assists relocation clients, including medical residents, professors, and doctors new to the area.
Jessica knows that the real estate market in the area is changing quickly and is prepared to help clients, no matter the market condition. She has helped clients in both economic recessions and a booming economy. She feels motivated and challenged to develop creative ideas to prepare her team for any circumstance. “Making a successful start in real estate during a recession, I have learned to accept challenge and meet it head on,” says Jessica. Her education from Denver University’s Marketing & Publishing Institute and background in the ad agency world, assists her in creatively selling homes quickly and for the maximum amount possible.
Jessica’s life is full, with a successful real estate team and a growing family. She is wisely balancing work and family while raising her three children within a loving community. Jessica describes her neighborhood as, “lots of families interacting with, and supporting, each other. We love our community and are happy to work, live, and raise our children here.”
For those looking to sell or purchase a home in the Triad and surrounding areas, Jessica and her team are ready to make the process fun and stress-free.
