“Jessica’s experience and willingness to understand what I was looking for plus her enthusiasm was the exact qualities I was looking in a Realtor in the Wilmington, NC area. Starting a career in a new town can be a daunting task. Jessica Riffle Edwards understood my wants and needs in a home and valued the fact that I didn’t have much free time to put into the home buying process. Her professionalism coupled with her time management skills made our transaction seamless. Without her help I wouldn’t have been able to own my own home so quickly and easily. Thanks!”

“Jessica worked diligently during a tough housing market to get my house sold. She was detail oriented, internet savvy and professional throughout the process.

“Just wanted to let you know I've had a great experience and have only positive things to say about Jessica's availability, effort, knowledge of the market and things to consider when buying. I had tried agents from other companies before her, so be assured I'm pretty demanding when it comes to people providing me a service. I'd also like to include her close coordinator Robin in this praise, although I of course had less contact with her. But again, very responsive and easy/fast to deal with.  I'll make sure to recommend Jessica going forward.”
