We moved from out of state and worked with Jackie to pick areas of interest in the Triangle and at developments that met our criteria.

We have two young kids, so there were a number of criteria that we had related to schools, parks, activities, etc. Jackie was tremendous to work with. She is both very personable and very knowledgeable! We would highly recommend Jackie to anyone searching for a home in the area!

Jen and Matt Mercer

Where to start.

First off Jackie is amazing. This is my 9th cross country move in 30 years. This was a corporate relocation to NC from CA. From our first conversation on the phone Jackie has a style and charm that put me at easy that I was getting a true professional and was going to make the house hunt in a new state a joy verse a chore. Jackie understood what we were looking for and what type of living / lifestyle we were looking to embrace here in NC. Jackie was very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and what would work will for our work styles / commute desires along with avoiding the cookie cutter homes / communities which would not have meet our needs. You cannot go wrong with Jackie. She is upbeat, knowledgeable and stays on top of your questions a concerns through the whole process. P.S. The project manager in me loved the detailed map tours we had when visiting homes, allowing us time to GPS driving distances and commutes from the various homes, along with her due diligence she performed when we had questions about the home or the neighborhood. If I ever require home buying services again her in NC i know exactly who i am going too.

Dwane Porter & Kip Wanamaker

Jackie was very attentive to calls, emails, and texts.

She always sent me listings that fit my idea of my ideal home; Jackie was in tune to what properties met my lifestyle.

Christy Wyatt

After searching unsuccessfully for well over a year with another agency, we switched to Jackie and found an exciting house within just a few short months.

Jackie came to us highly recommended and we found her to be professional, attentive, and exactly what we needed to break through Wake County's ultra-competitive market. I would recommend her to anyone!

Benjamin Moody

Jackie is amazing.

She helped me find the home of my dreams, and I have been happily living there for almost ten years now. Jackie is a great listener, and she honed my real estate search to find the exact requirements I was looking for. Jackie has a wealth of experience and is an extremely knowledgable agent, but if she doesn't know the answer to a question, she will research it and provide you with the answer in less than 24 hours. Jackie knows the best people in every step of the real estate process and finds a way to work within your personal budget. Jackie is fantastic. I give her my strongest recommendation.

Dan Wales

Jackie helped us to both buy and sell our home in Cary.

She did an amazing job both times. Not only did she so a great job marketing the home and navigating the negotiations, but she was fun to work with. I highly recommend working with Jackie.

Will Cross

Jackie is just super - very knowledgeable about the market, processes to buy and sell, and finding great folks for inspections and closing.

My wife and I have used her help with three different houses in buying, selling, and buying again. Lots of fun to talk to is the icing on the cake!


Jackie sold us a house and when we downsized she helped us sell it fast.

Although we only owned it for 3 years she helped us maximize our price with great tips for getting it ready for showing. Very knowledgeable and easy to work with.

Dave Johnson

Jackie did a great job as both selling and buying agent for us.

She took so much of the stress out of the process. She was there for us every step of the way. I highly recommend her to anyone looking of a real estate agent.

It is also nice that she sends cards and calendars -- We appreciate Jackie; she is a caring realtor.

Jackie was patient in finding my first home - a fixer upper.

She listened to my needs and was able to quickly negotiate with the seller. I appreciate all she did constantly sending me documents and the latest info as she found out new developments with the property.

David Bohle

Jackie is extremely professional and knows everything there is about buying and selling a home.

She is on top of other vendors in the process and does a great job of making it easy thought out the whole process, which can be very stressful. She makes it easy from start to finish .

Bruce Jones

My husband and I used Jackie three times to buy and sell houses.

Each time she was 100% involved and available. She always stayed in contact, was easy to get ahold of, explained every step and every paper we needed to get or sign, was ahead of the game many times in anticipating what course of action needed to be taken, was easy to talk to, helpful, organised, punctual, and very efficient and professional. I can't recommend her highly enough to anyone needing a competent and reliable real estate agent.

Amanda Swart

Jackie is extremely knowledgeable within all aspects of the busines.

She is not only friendly and easy to work with, but she genuinely cares about your wants, desires and concerns. She is willing to go to extreme lengths for customer satisfaction. She is a winner at helping families find the home of their dreams!

Stephanie Beason

We had Jackie working with us finding our first rental home in the area and she did a great job.

When we were finally ready to buy our first house, we had no doubt she was the right person. Always on top of everything, she showed us many many houses and never pushed us, very fast to get us to view any house on the market, always with a smile and her energy. She really drove us through the process in the best way I can possibly have wished for. She helped us get the house we wanted in a very competitive market and we couldn't be happier. She was a real asset also recomending mortgage assistance, inspections etc. And when we decided to leave the area she put us through a rental company we are very happy with. One day we might sell our house. We don't need to look any further because we know she's the best: professional, experienced, knowledgeable and enjoyable.

Marina Martini

This is my second home sale with Jackie and I would not work with anyone else!

She makes it all a pleasure.

Nancy Godbold

I bought my town home when the eight thousand tax credit was available.

However, when trying to purchase a home in time for that offer, I had one seller receive a tax lean and another seller run out of the country as the house went into foreclosure. Jackie stayed with me through the bad luck and helped me find a place in a better neighborhood in an area that I was not looking at originally. She helped me secure the place for the best price and I can't recommend her enough.

Mark Heady

Jackie was referred to my husband and I when we were relocating to North Carolina.

Jackie knew that time was of the essence to find a house that we loved as we only had a week before returning up north to pack up our sold house and make the final move down south. The first two days we were in town Jackie showed us over 20 houses that all fit our requirements, needs and wants. She answered any questions we had no matter the time of day or night. She also put us in touch with friends who were living in our dream neighborhood so we could learn more about the community. We unfortunately had some minor roadblocks along the way (due to the sellers) but Jackie came through with showing us our dream house in the neighboorhood that we absolutely love. I highly recommend Jackie if you are a serious buyer or seller because she WILL get the job done!

Kellee Criscoe

Jackie is awesome!

She listened, she was funny, knowledgeable, and even introduced us to new friends in the neighborhood. Very happy with her service.


Excellent service, very knowledgeable about housing market!

We bought and sold our house through Jackie!


Because we are out-of-state sellers, we had to conduct our search for a realtor from lour rental company's recommendation.

Jackie was one of four realtors we interviewed. We sent out a list of questions for possible realtors to answer then conducted phone interviews. Jackie was the only one who was meticulous and forth-coming with her answers. Not only did she provide us with detailed answers to our questions, but she willingly gave us more to consider for our decision. We needed someone who would communicate with us and would offer solid advice. When I spoke to Jackie for the first time on the phone, I was immediately impressed by how she understood our need to see the numbers and to be kept informed. I am beyond certain that working with Jackie is why this whole process has been as smooth as it has been. Despite the little hiccups - from coordinating repairs to confusion with closing dates to dealing with the time difference between East and West Coast - she has been concise, blunt, and communicative. She understood that we were looking for someone who would advocate for us, who would educate us on the market and the process, and who would also make the experience a pleasant one for the buyers. I wish Jackie was local because I wouldn't mind having her be our go-to realtor. She is personable, dependable, and most importantly, trustworthy. I would recommend her to any of our friends and colleagues still in the area.

Monika Dechene

Jackie is awesome!

Her passion for serving her clients and her energy and enthusiasm is contagious. Jackie is all in when it comes to the BHHS YSU vision: We Make Great Neighbors. She is fully committed to exceeding expectations for exemplary services in everything she does and building lasting relationships on trust and care.

Tommy Camp

Jackie is the ultimate professional and is a tremendous asset to our company.

She is extremely passionate about how she does business and her reputation for providing an exceptional real estate experience with all her clients is very important to her. She is truly a joy to have on our team and I am happy to call Jackie one of ours! She's awesome.

Dan Washington

Jackie is by far one of the best agents AND people I've had the luck to work with in this business!

She truly cares about her clients, and her experience and knowledge are a true asset when it comes to helping them make the best decisions possible. Jackie has always put other's needs before her own, and provides value in every situation. She is kind, smart, and responsive, and you would be lucky to work with her if you have the opportunity!

Player Murray

I've known Jackie for over 10 years and I do not hesitate to send her referrals.

She has a great energy and her client's know that she likes what she does. Jackie also has a great depth of understanding of the market and a real skill with knowing just the right house to fit her clients. She also knows how to sell homes and excels at taking homes from the mundane to the spectacular.

Chris Nichols

Jackie helped us purchase a home and did an excellent job.

We never had any worries, and if issues arose, we could count on Jackie to take care of things. She also gave us some excellent advise when we were getting our other house ready to sell. My husband and I would recommend Jackie if you are looking for a great realtor to help you buy or sell a home.

Ellen Cook

Jackie is a true professional.

Great attention to detail. It has been a pleasure to work with her for many years now.

Michael Drolet

Thanks a lot, Jackie!

It was easy and pleasant to work with you at this difficult time for buyers.


Best real estate agent ever!

She has helped us sell 2 houses and buy 1 house in the last 8 months. I highly recommend Jackie because when you are giving an offer, she does not just try to have you go high and when you are receiving offers she tells you to turn many away if she thinks you can get even just a little more. She definitely has her clients’ best interests in mind.


Jackie was wonderful to work with throughout the whole process of shopping for a new home, negotiating the new home, and then the selling of our previous home.

Helping us get the best deal possible on the new and maximizing what we got out of the old, the value she brought to the table was apparent.

Rodney Boles

Jackie is so much fun to work with!

She helped us sell our house first and then later buy a new house, and she was tireless and accessible on both accounts. We were juggling a lot of things in addition to the house buying process, and Jackie's organizational skills and gentle reminders kept us on track and allowed us to close on schedule. Thank you for your hard work, Jackie!

Courtney Hill

Jackie is the best!

! Her enthusiasm and passion for what she does truly shows in all that she does. She was always available and always kept us up to date on everything! She more than exceeded my expectations and was absolutely pleased with the outcome of selling our house. I highly recommend her services!

Kimberly Jodie

As a Mortgage Loan Originator, I've helped scores of Jackie's clients with the loan side of the transaction for well over a decade.

This has given me a great behind the scenes view of her work ethic, industry knowledge, and methodologies. Without a doubt, Jackie seriously knows Real Estate and is a highly efficient and skilled agent who I've seen repeatedly go beyond the call of duty for her clients. On top of all that, Jackie is flat out FUN! She's optimistic, spirited, and projects a cool we've got this vibe that creates a fantastic experience for everyone in the transaction. Jackie rocks!

Todd Barbour

Jackie's knowledge, professionalism and friendliness created a great environment for building trust and a long term relationship.

She was there for us every step of the way including after our purchase when we had questions regarding the builders warranty. Inn addition to that, she has an excellent network of resources to assist when needed. I would highly recommend Jackie for both buying and selling a home.

John Defeo

This was an amazing experience.

My aging parents are transitioning into managed care and their house had fallen into a state of disrepair. I live in Canada and was nervous about getting all the necessary tasks accomplished. I needn't have worried. Jackie handled all the contractor work and spent my parents' dollars as carefully as if they were her own. She priced the house correctly and we got multiple offers above asking price. Throughout it all, Jackie was a excellent communicator. She was instantly responsive to texts. She was kind and canny. Her wonderful demeanor extended to all parties involved on both sides of the transaction. The good will Jackie engendered was so pervasive, everyone felt comfortable enough to pull the official closing date a week ahead of schedule. I wish I had more property in the Raleigh area just so I could have the pleasure of engaging Jackie to sell it for me!


Jackie did an awesome job helping with our home purchase.

. It was not a routine transaction since we were out of state and never saw the home in person.. She went above and beyond to see the homes and gave us detailed descriptions of each home she looked at for us.. she was always a phone call or email away if we had questions.. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home and will definitely be using her again in the future..

Trevor and Michelle

Jackie is a phenomenon realtor!

Such a bubbly personality and a go-getter attitude! I knew I was in good hands from start!

Crystal Carr

From the moment we met Jackie, we knew everything would be done to find us the perfect house.

Jackie is confident, friendly and a great listener. Her instincts are keen at reading between the lines of what a client or client-couple might be trying to convey. Most folks buy a new house once a decade or so, but Jackie's experience and ability to subtly share ideas is a big help in this daunting task. Jackie showed us homes on either end of our price range early on and carefully remembered features and drawbacks of every home we visited in the past. This made it easy for us to narrow in on the features and locations that mattered most to us. We highly recommend her services and encourage everyone to enjoy Jackie's professionalism, easy-going humor, sharp mind and how she always seems to go the extra mile in finding just the right properties and other resources that make a new house into a comfortable home.

Dwane Porter and Kip Wanamaker

Jackie is the best!

Coming from Europe, we needed a lot of guidance to understand how things work in the US when buying a house. Jackie guided us through out the whole process, not only with the financial and practical aspects of it, but also with the emotional side of buying your first home. We have recommended her to many of our friends, and we are sure who to call when the time to sell or buy a new property comes.

Tomas Alvarez Rodriguez

Jackie has been assisting our clients for over 11 years.

She is professional, genuine and thoughtful in her approach with our clients. She builds a relationship and helps find the property that is right for you. Most importantly, she has great character and integrity and makes the home purchase experience like shopping with a friend. Jackie’s knowledge, service and value make her an outstanding trusted advisor in real estate.

Rob Jamison

Jackie is a high-energy, detail oriented, client-focused Realtor.

As a closing attorney, I enjoy working with Jackie and her clients, because I know her clients are in great hands. The buying and selling process is complex, and Jackie is an asset for clients in navigating the ups and downs involved in today’s real estate transactions. Her knowledge of the real estate market is unequivocal, and she possesses extraordinary talent in advising, supporting, and advocating for her clients.

Paula Murray

Jackie was super helpful in finding us the perfect house.

She was easy to work with and very responsive. During the entire process, she made us feel at all times that she was our agent and provded excellent guidance.

Nitin Das

Jackie is amazing and we were fortunate that we selected her as my daughters agent.

My daughter was a first time home buyer and Jackie was patient with her, listened to her wants and needs, found her the perfect place and all the while took as much of the anxiety out of a home purchase as you possibly can. Any issues that arouse Jackie always had a solution. She was truly above and beyond expectations and in today's day and time that is almost impossible to say. We would absolutely recommend her services to anyone.

Bogdan T Ewendt

I'm delighted to recommend Jackie McKenzie!

She's a dynamo and a caring and professional advocate and adviser to her clients. You're in very good hands if you are represented by Jackie!

Jenny McLeod

Jackie was our neighbor when she got started in real estate.

After some time went by (cpl years mayabe) my wife and I decided to move to a home with a little more land and more space. We decided to go with Jackie and we could not have made a better decision. She took us to a few houses before we found the one we wanted. This particular home was a challenge due to the fact it was currently under renovation. We went back and forth, with the seller, for what seemed like forever but Jackie was able to get the right deal for us and we've been here for 8yrs now. Jackie also sold the home we were living in twice! That's a long story ;) I could not recommend Jackie enough.

Dale Wright

Jackie is one of the hardest workers I know.

She's extremely focused on the needs of her clients while bringing constant positive energy to every interaction she has. We're lucky to have Jackie on our team and anyone who has the opportunity to work with her will benefit greatly!

Kyle Rank

Jackie was our agent and she did an amazing job finding our home.

She was extremely patient as we made our selection and took great care of us through our our buying process. She is a delight to work with and extremely knowledgeable in her field.

Colleen Marable

Jackie is a warm, high energy, upbeat person and a consumate professional.

She worked tirelessly with us to find our home, despite our long (possibly unrealistic) wish list and how long it took for us to find just the right one. She is highly committed to her clients and will treat you like she would one of her good friends. Jackie will return your calls, answer your questions, and fight for what's in your best interest. I have previously, and will continute to, strongly recommend Jackie to everyone I know. You won't be disappointed!


I first worked with Jackie in 2011 when she tirelessly helped me find a rental property as I was relocating to Raleigh from Iowa.

I was only in town 3 days and we looked at countless properties and I was so happy with what we found before I left. Her knowledge of the area was so helpful as I knew nothing! I was forever grateful for that! Just a year later, she helped me with a new build. The builder made some quoting mistakes and she went to bat for me. She was always available through the whole process. Since then I have moved to the beach after I retired, but I've recommended her to friends and would never hesitate to do that in the future. It's not by accident that Jackie is one of the top realtors year over year. She's honest, ethical, straight-forward and extremely knowledgeable. You will never have regrets if you work with her on future home sales or buys!

Nancy Bower

Jackie did a great job in finding the right home when we relocated to NC .

She never gave up on some hard requirements and we were very happy with her service. When we subsequently left NC , Jackie was our first call to list our home. I highly recommend working with her.

David MacCutcheon

Jackie served as a buyer agent for my current home in Morrisville, North Carolina in 2015.

She is very knowledgeable and patient with her customers. She always gives good advice and let customers make decision. I strongly recommend Jackie for anyone who wants to buy a new home or sell your current home. A happy customer of Jackie. Yonghe Bai

Yonghe Bai

It is our pleasure to recommend Jackie McKenzie as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home.

Jackie stands out amongst other realtors because she is attentive and helped us through every step of the process as if we were her only clients, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. She is highly personable with an engaging personality. Jackie helped us purchase a new home in Clayton, NC. She went to check up on the house often to update us on the progress as we were halfway across the country. A master with the contract negotiations, Jackie came up with a deal that was good for us and the builder's agent. She will be our first choice in real estate agents, when we are in the market again!

Coty Otten

I'd be shocked if there's anyone who could compete with Jackie for the title of hands down best real estate broker.

I couldn't more strongly endorse someone to thoughtfully and expertly navigate the real estate market than Jackie. From the moment we met, she projected professionalism and a strong degree of compassion. I was selling my first home during a busy season when I was relocating for a new job. Jackie walked into my world with full understanding of the potentially stressful other dynamics I was managing and she proactively made the selling of my home as easy and painless as possible. In particular, I enjoyed her style of proactive but not excessive communications. Knowing that my preferred method of communication was text message, she leveraged that channel to coordinate most everything and she was lighting fast and helpful in response to my first time home seller type questions. I think Jackie is the type of person who would be amazing at anything she set her mind to, because she has a go-getter attitude and can-do spirit. I'd cherish the opportunity to work with Jackie again - she went above and beyond for me.

"Jackie was tremendous for me in selling my house. She was quick to get people into the house and answered any questions I had quickly. I was already in another state and she took care of everything that was needed as we navigated a window issue that a previous contractor had messed up. Highly recommend!"

"I would highly recommend picking Jackie as your real estate agent. She was extremely responsive and had to deal with quite a few issues we had with the buyer's agent who was very poor. She always kept me updated through phone calls and texts and even helped us sell our house for more money then what we initially thought we would get!! Go with Jackie, I can promise you that you will not be disappointed!!"

"Jackie helped my husband and I sell our home while we transitioned out of state. She was wonderful. She suggested the repairs we should do to make our home more attractive to the market and she was correct. After the first day on the market we had about 8 scheduled showings and some offers. She was very professional, and knowledgeable about the market. We definitely made the right choice of realtor. I would recommend her to anyone. She made our transition a smooth one."

"Jackie was great to work with. She helped us buy this home, and then 4 years later helped us to sell it. The market changed quite a bit in that time, and she helped us to navigate it all in expert fashion. Plus, she is fun to talk to and work with. Highly recommended!"

"I would definitely recommend Jackie as a real estate agent for both selling and buying a home. Jackie helped us find a great house when we moved to NC two years ago and then sold our house for us this year when we were relocated again. Jackie is extremely knowledgable and listens to what you want. She knows all that is required for relocations and really takes off some of the pressure associated with moving. I loved the house we found and would have loved to take it with me. On the selling end, Jackie marketed our house and we accepted an offer within two weeks. Jackie is always very responsive and I found her easy to work with. She is both pleasant and polite. I always felt I could call her with any of my questions or concerns and she would be there to answer or guide me in the right direction. For these reasons and more, I would definitely recommend hiring Jackie as your agent."
