Buying or selling a luxury home without a professional, experienced luxury home agent and a company with worldwide name recognition can cost clients significant time and money in the long run. Thankfully we sat down with, Jessica Prestwich, a luxury home specialist with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services. Jessica moved to Las Vegas 13 years ago and was here to see the market boom. Originally from the Phoenix/ Scottsdale area, Jessica grew up in the real estate business; her family had their boots on the ground, investing in residential real estate and flipping properties as Phoenix expanded. She talks about watching her family build wealth through residential real estate and eventually turning that into commercial investments. Jessica cites her career decision partially because of her family’s business, but she also talks about another reason. Her family had the same REALTOR ® for 20 years, and that incredible lifetime relationship is something she wants to carry on with her clients. Jessica’s primary goal is to solve problems and to relieve stress for her clients. In her own words, “I am really an empathetic person.”
When my clients have stress, I feel that too. I want to make sure we reach the best outcomes and achieve the desired goals. “I want to make the process as easy as possible for them and provide my advice and guidance throughout the transaction as needed.” This is a lot of what drives her work. She is focused on obtaining an optimal result for her clients. Her advice to luxury home buyers and sellers is to identify a desired timeline for your transaction. Your timeline is the starting point and a major factor that will drive many important decisions throughout the process.
A timeline for your sale is important to keep in mind, especially if a sale is required to purchase your next home; Jessica is a master at managing this. If you are thinking of selling, you will need time to prepare your home to sell at the highest value. Jessica is willing to help her clients with staging and advice on minor or major renovations and repairs that might be needed. Diving into the housing market when you aren’t ready will lead to burnout. Talk with Jessica and her preferred lender to understand your options and the realities of the current market. Before you finish this article and pursue your real estate dreams, Jessica wanted to share a quote that’s inspired her considerably throughout her career.
“The purpose of life-is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to make a difference that you have lived and lived well.” Ralph Waldo Emerson. The average person changes homes four times during their lifetime. So just like with Jessica’s family REALTOR ®, you want an agent that you can build a relationship with, one that will work with you. And this is precisely what you would have in Jessica Prestwich, professional REALTOR ®.
