Testimonials
  
From the time I first met Lisa Jackson until the day we closed on our house she impressed me with her professionalism, passion, self motivation, focus and dedication to accomplishing the goal we hired her for- selling our home. Lisa is honest, generous and does not let her pride get in the way of her job. If this is the first time you're buying or selling a property you will realize these qualities in a real estate broker are very hard to find.
I've met and worked with many brokers and Lisa is far and away the most trustworthy and hard working I've come across. She truly went above and beyond the call of duty for us- which was necessary since we were living across the country and we really needed someone we could rely on- Lisa came through for us from beginning to end. In my opinion, Lisa is hands down the best broker in Rockaway- not just because of her work ethic, organization and fresh energy but because she doesn't play games and doesn't fall into the many ego traps so many brokers I've met fall into.
I don't give out praise very often- but Lisa has proven herself worthy.

If there were more stars available, I'd give them all to Lisa Jackson. Not only did she help us sell my mom's house more quickly and for more money than we expected, but she also went way out of her way to help us get the house ready for sale and to find furniture buyers. With my sister and I living hours away from Rockaway, having someone we could trust completely and communicate with frequently was very important to us. Unlike other Rockaway brokers we considered, Lisa Jackson seems to be the only one who is completely comfortable in the online world of MLS, email, and texting. If you have a house to sell in Rockaway, you cannot be in better hands than Lisa Jackson's!

I was trying to sell my house in the Rockaways. The previous real estate agents were trying to sell my house below market value. Lisa knew the true value of my house and the current interest in the Rockaways and secured a buyer who was serious, pre-approved and willing to pay more than my original asking price.
Lisa is a competent professional and during the entire process of selling my house - made me feel confident.
Lisa specializes in the Rockaways. If you are buying or selling your property in the Rockaways, Lisa is your girl.

Thank you.

To sum it all up......... In all my years in the commercial real estate business as a Developer/Landlord......Lisa Jackson ranks in the very top 2 Brokers I have ever dealt with (the other being my own Son).. WHEN IT CAME TO SELLING MY OWN HOME I CHOSE LISA JACKSON. The best way to describe her is 'FLAWLESS'.

Lisa and Barbara were exceedingly helpful in us purchasing a house in Neponsit. They helped us both before and after the Hurricane, and responded quickly and compassionately to our concerns and challenges. I highly recommend Rockaway Properties. They are fair and honest and good brokers.

Lisa worked tirelessly for us when my wife and I decided to sell our home in Neponsit. She was professional and understanding of our needs at all times. When the storm hit and it looked like all of our plans were dashed, Lisa continued to work tirelessly on our behalf, despite the fact that she and her family also suffered damage and dislocation. I wholeheartedly recommend her.

Lisa was a dream come true! Not only did she sell our home, she vigorously negotiated to get us the best price. Her patience, perseverance, and professionalism was a breath of fresh air. She made me feel as though I was her only client, and stood by my side until the last signature was made at…

My experience with Lisa Jackson was terrific! Being first time home buyers we were nervous, but Lisa kept us calm and walked us through the process step by step. Lisa was extremely quick to respond to all of my inquires and If she was not available she had one of her agents get back to me. I highly recommend Lisa Jackson and her team.

Lisa helped me rent a home. She was very responsive to my needs and considering my immediate situation. Lisa had apartments and homes lined up extremely quickly. Lisa knew what I wanted and didn't waste my time with "maybes"..... As a busy person with limited time to look at homes for rent, I really appreciated that. There was no sales pitch, just all business and professionalism. I would recommend Lisa and the staff at Rockaway Properties to anyone. Thanks Lisa

Since I had not been living in my home, Lisa was kind enough and wise enough to offer to help stage my home so that prospective buyers could get a sense of how the space could be utilized. I was very appreciative that she put in the time and effort to do this and it did result in a relatively quick sale. To sell a home in Rockaway, I feel that Lisa Jackson is really the go to broker.

As a Rockaway resident herself, Lisa's knowledge of the area is superior. I highly recommend Lisa Jackson and Rockaway Properties if you are considering purchasing or selling a Rockaway home.

Lisa has been the ideal broker when it came to finding our dream home in Neponsit. It took my husband and I well over a year to find our home and Lisa has remained with us throughout the entire search process, patient, readily available, knowledgeable, and with our best interests in mind. I would recommend her without hesitation.
  Yana Salerno

Lisa Jackson was extremely professional from the first day we met her when she brought information about comparable properties and a marketing plan for the property. As our house was unusual, she presented it very effectively. She is always responsive to texts or phone calls and went to extra lengths to help us as absentee owners, even shoveling snow on the day of the walk through

My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting our broker, Melissa Carrington, at an open house and decided to work with her based upon her extensive knowledge of the area. We had very specific goals and budgets in our home search, and Melissa worked diligently to make sure that we were able to stay within those parameters. We are first time home buyers, so naturally we had many questions for Melissa and she made sure to find all answers for us. She went above and beyond for us and helped us immensely throughout the process. I cannot say enough great things about how positive our dealings were with Melissa and Rockaway Properties, I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking to buy or sell!
  Kevin Neafsey
There is no other broker in the Rockaway area who has the professionalism of Lisa Jackson. Her passion and knowledge about local real estate is beyond compare. She will go above and beyond to help you sell your home. Trust your home sale to Lisa. You won't be disappointed!

When dealing with clients from out of State like we were, it can sometimes be very hard for the sellers and realtor to be on the same page. That wasn't the case with Lisa and her staff. All our needs were met in a timely and reasonable fashion. Her staging and open houses amounted in a quick sale. We couldn't have asked for more. Thanks again. Wishing you much success in the up coming year.

Working with Lisa was a true pleasure. Lisa helped us immensely in our search for a home and her knowledge of the real estate market of Belle Harbor/Neponsit/Rockaway Park is exceptional. She was extremely fair in all of her dealings with both us, the buyers, and the sellers. I would not hesitate to work with Lisa again whether buying or selling.

When it came time to sell our home we interviewed multiple realtors who told us what we wanted to hear but not the truth. Lisa came in and was honest with us about the value of our home. She brought only serious purchasers to view the property and we had an accepted offer after only 11 days on the market. Throughout the entire process Lisa always made herself available to us and responded quickly to our questions. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable and professional. We would highly recommend Lisa and her team to buy or sell a home for you.
  Natalie O'Connell

We appreciated working with Nia Casilla. She was kind, patient and always answered our questions quickly. She helped make our home buying a pleasant experience when we were dealing with a hot headed lawyer. I would absolutely recommend Nia and Rockaway Properties for anyone buying a home in Rockaway.

Take care,
Joyce

Lisa Jackson was very professional and honest. She helped us find a home that we could afford and love. Lisa immediately notified us when any new houses were put on the market. I would highly recommend Lisa.
  July Stack
We worked with Lisa to identify a house in the area which would accomadate our specific needs. Lisa was very helpful in the process, which took awhile due to our specific needs,. She made herself available at all times, was active in identifying potential houses, and was very helpful during the contract to closing period. We strongly recommend Lisa be used by both sellers and buyers in her coverage area.

Within the first week of putting my house on the market, there were several great offers due to Nia's expertise, negotiating skills and access to solid potential buyers. She was indefatigable throughout the entire process which was not without challenges due to Hurricane Sandy. She kept in constant contact with all parties involved and was appropriately assertive or patient as the circumstance dictated. Nia always listened (even when I wouldn't stop the monologue) and was proactive. She returned emails, texts and phone calls immediately.
> In short, Nia worked her a## off to get qualified buyers, the best deal, and a closing in a reasonable time frame. She loves what she does as evidenced by her knowledge, willingness and tireless commitment.
I recommend her without question and am using her to buy my next house.

I met Lisa when my daughter was looking for a home in Neponsit and was immediately impressed by her honesty and straight forward professionalism. When I decided to look for a home for myself, Lisa was the only one I called. She listened to my list of wants and needs and found the perfect fit for me! Lisa is always available, and follows through from the beginning of the purchase process to the end. She feels like a friend who has your best interests at heart!! She is smart, honest, and knows her market inside and out. Buying or selling, you can't do better than Lisa Jackson and Rockaway Properties!
  Linda Bertolini
Thank you Lisa for being honest, reliable and dedicated. We were selling our beloved home and buying another. Lisa carefully guided us through both processes with candor and confidence. I was thoroughly disappointed at the unprofessionalism of other agents in the area. Lisa was a breath of fresh air. She helped make the transaction as easy as possible with the support and guidance you need and expect. Lisa exceeded my expectations. I will undoubtably recommend her!!
  Jodi Emmolo

We chose Lisa from recommendations from friends. She was fantastic helping us find our first home. We were first time buyers and had no clue what we were doing. She was very patient and answered our MANY questions, concerns and probably many repeated questions. We told her exactly what we were looking for and she was able to show us many homes that fit what we were looking for. Long story short, we found our dream home within one week. She was great helping us get through the closing and working with the seller. We highly recommend her!

I found Lisa Jackson to be completely professional and very nice,more importantly,successful. She was able to sell a piece of property that we had on the market for five years, in six months? She was able to work with varied personalities, so that everybody was happy and the deal went through. She is very persistent and I don't believe the deal would have happened without her.

I had a wonderful experience working with Lisa. She conducts her business with the utmost professionalism. Beyond that, she knows the area inside and out and also understood my preferences immediately. Given this, she was able to point me toward houses that were perfect for me. She was a great ally to have in this process.

My experience with Lisa was great. She is professional, knowledgeable about the area and has a good network. Lisa was able to find a buyer for a difficult property in short time frame and deftly handled the negotiations.

I recently sold my home with Lisa Jackson and found her to be helpful, friendly, knowledgable and and very much an asset to finding a good buyer and seeing the process through to completion.. I would recommend Lisa to anyone looking for a high quality, highly competent agent. She came with great recommendations and lived up to all our expectations

Lisa Jackson was recommended to our family through a friend that had used her in the past. It was so meant to be because we had horrible experiences trying to sell our home with other agents in the area. When we first met Lisa we knew right then and there that she was the one that was going to sell our home. What makes Lisa so special is that she is extremely professional as a real estate agent.
She came to our home with facts and data and really opened our eyes on how the market works, especially in the current economy.
She is loyal to her customers and truly cares in getting the job done. Lisa was always available and always honest with us. She is dedicated to her work and truly cares about making all parties involved 100% satisified. Lisa always prepared us in advance when she wanted to show our home and always brought potentinal buyers to our home that were "serious buyers."
If you are trying or interested in selling your home in the rockaway, belle harbor or neponsit area, Lisa is the one who will get the job done.
Thank you so much Lisa!

Dear Lisa: I wanted to let you know how happy I was working with you and Nia. I found both of you to be most professional in your efforts. I was thrilled when only 2 weeks after signing you presented me with an excellent offer for my home. Soon after we closed all within my time framework.

After a number of bad experiences with other real estate brokers, it was such a thrill to find a firm like yours with such wonderful professionals as you and Nia. You sold my house in record time for an amount higher than I expected. You are truly to be congratulated and I would recommend both of you to anyone seeking a real estate broker to represent them as either a seller or buyer.

Please call on me anytime you would like me to recount my wonderful experiences with your firm. I am here to give you a reference anytime and any place you like. Again, my hat's off to you! Congratulations on a job more than well done!

warmest regards

My house was on the market for over a year before I hired Lisa to sell my home. First of all, she was brutally honest in telling me what every seller doesn't want to hear, that my listing price was too high. Obviously so, since I had a beautiful home and a lot of interested buyers but no offers. And I have to say, she didn't rely on just a sign in the yard or the ad in the paper to draw people in, she called many buyers from outside our area and held two open houses. We lowered the price, had 4 offers within a week and and got just shy of asking price. We closed about 3 months later. Thanks Lisa! Would I recommend her? Damn straight I would!
  Lana Meli
Lisa was the listing broker for a home I recently purchased in Arverne. She did an amazing job of working with both parties to find solutions and close the transaction. Since this was a first home purchase, I was not convinced at first that this was the home that I wanted, but she had great patience with my questions and followed up quickly on any concerns.
  Nathan Wolaver

Lisa sold our home in Belle Harbor, NY. She was eager to meet our needs regarding our listing, price, open house schedule, and client showings. She offered advice based on her experience, and empowered us to make decisions based on our comfort level. She was aggressive, but not pushy. She was determined to sell our home and remained focused and attentive until the closing.

Lisa gave a completely realistic (and as it turned out, accurate) assessment of what we could expect to get. She really knows the market and fights hard to get you a good deal. She responded quickly to all requests, and was professional and respectful.
