Dedicated, attention to detail, 100% reliable, very knowledgeable. These are just a few things we think of when it comes to Megan Bland. Relocating from out of state was stressful enough; add being a first time home buyer to the mix we were completely lost. Megan definitely provide a sense of relief throughout the our home buying process. Communication was never an issue, Megan was always a text, email or phone call away. Megan made sure to follow up with the builder. She was EXCELLENT with sending me reminders of appointments or paperwork that needed to be submitted. Unfortunately, due to the COVID restrictions she was not allowed to attend my design appointment, but she was very excited to hear all about it, she text me as soon as the appointment was over. She even went as far as stopping by to see pictures of the selections we made. Megan definitely goes above and beyond to ensure her clients have a positive and semi stress free home buying experience. Oh, and if you thought that she walks away after closing you are sadly mistaken! Megan has continuously followed up with me since the closing. Thank you Megan for all your help during this process. You definitely left a lasting impression on these two FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS!

I fairly enjoyed working with Rachel, her communication was great. I started my home search at the beginning of Covid and it was hard for me to find something in my range due to investors outbidding everyone but she kept looking for me and sending me houses as soon as she got the information. I ended up doing a new build and she made sure to send me status updates throughout the process. I recommend her and I’ve already passed out several business cards to my family and friends. Thank you again Rachel and I’ll continue to send clients your way!

I had a great experience working with Rachel. She was very attentive to my interest. She came through for me! I recently closed on my new home thanks to her!

When I started my home search, I quickly learned that decent homes were being sold very quickly, sometimes within a week of their listing. Potential buyers would place a bid in the latter part of a week, bids were reviewed over the weekend, and home contracts were in place the following week. I also learned that, secondhand homes were being bid on, higher than asking price, while new homes, with money down, could be bought at the asking price. Again finding a home that I desired, was very difficult. Megan had explained many things to me. She explained the market to me. She explained the bidding process, and best way to go about placing a desirable bid. Megan was a very valuable resource through this process, and explain to me the market’s pros and cons of buying a used home versus buying something new, that hadn’t been built yet. She was always there, to answer questions, and provide very useful information, so I could make quick decisions on the spot. Megan was always courteous, and had a vast amount of resources to fall back on, and share, as questions, came up. Megan made my homebuying process logical, and systematic. I don’t plan on moving again, but should I move, in an area that Megan services, I would have no problem using Megan as my realtor, or recommending her to others. Signed, Anonymous

Jaclyn Smith demonstrates a strong work ethic and is dedicated to providing positive interpersonal skills to facilitate the desires of those she works for. She has a kind heart and will go above and beyond to meet the needs of others in a timely manner. I can't say enough positive things about Jaclyn and would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying/selling a house.

- Jen Douse

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Julie Jordan. She was able to get our home sold in a weekend. The process was simple and smooth. Julie was always quick to answer our questions and offer suggestions when we needed it. We would recommend her for anyone that would want to sell their house quickly.

- Dawn Fall

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Mrs. Rachel Leeworthy. she was chosen because of her first impression to reassure us that her ultimate goal is to provide excellent service to ease our minds during the process of selling or buying a home. The best experience I love about Rachel is the sincere passion about her work and we can count on her to be available to answer any questions, therefore, Jerome and I would Highly recommend Mrs. Rachel to family, friends, strangers(LOL). Rachel can make it happen in the housing market, no doubt about it! we love you and thanks for everything!

- Stephanie and Jerome

Jaclyn Smith approaches everything she does with a positive, can do attitude. She is always willing to go out of her way and bend over backwards to make people feel comfortable and finish the task she has been given. I have no doubt that Jaclyn treats all her clients with the utmost respect and works hard to fulfill their needs.

Sarah Morris did an impeccable job from start to finish. Sarah and I met by chance a few years ago when she provided access to a new build when I was just passively looking for a new home. We hit things off right away. Sarah knows her stuff and she lined up properties that fit our needs. Some unforeseen delays pushed our schedule out but Sarah remained diligent. She fought for us during the buyers spike of 2021. Sarah got us in a new build development and we were able to secure a lot. The supply chain made a major impact on our timeline but Sarah remained in contact with the builders and kept us up to speed with everything. My husband and I couldn't have asked for anymore from our powerhouse realtor. She was creative in her approach and has a lot of contacts. We appreciate Sarah Morris so much and we will recommend her to all of our friends and family who are in the market.

Words cannot express how grateful I am working with Megan Bland. After working with different realtors, with no success Megan was God send. It took us one year but finally closed on a house. Megan was incredibly patient, courteous and very flexible. Always a phone call away which I much needed being a first home buyer. God knows I wouldn’t have gone through this process without Megan. Highly recommended.

- Faith Gichure

Mark is wonderful! His insight and knowledge of the market and real estate in our area made it a very easy decision to list with him (plus he is so very nice too). The selling of our home was a very smooth and problem free transaction. In a very crazy market, Mark was a great calm in the midst of it all. We highly recommend Mark to anyone considering selling or buying a home. Call Mark - you will be glad you did. Thank you, Mark - we love and appreciate you!!!

- Ellyn Temple

Attention to Detail immediately comes to mind in terms of what my wife and I experienced when we selected and customized our new home! Megan was there every step of the process, from helping pick paint colors, cabinets, counter tops, light fixtures to flooring. Megan took unbelievable notes/pictures and made sure everything we selected was exactly on point. Finally, we really appreciate the follow up after closing as well, Megan is a true pro when it comes to helping find, purchase and close on a new home.

- Kevin Wirhouski

I was referred to Rachel by a friend to help me with the sale of my house. I can unequivocally say that Rachel has been the best realtor that I have ever worked with in my 28 years of buying and selling property. This was the third home that I have sold since 1994 and she exceeded all previous realtors. She helped me navigate the selling process and maximize my sale price. There was never a time that she wasn't available or helpful during the process from the initial meeting to closing. I can only imagine she would be just as helpful for someone buying a house. I give Rachel my highest recommendation for anyone looking to buy or sell a house. Thanks Rachel!

Working with Jaclyn was a superb experience. She routinely went out of her way to accommodate our schedule and quickly answer our many questions. She was great in coordinating every step of the process for us. With Jaclyn's help, we were able to find and purchase our dream home - truly what we wanted in every way. Once we found that property, we had Jaclyn list our former house. With her resources we were able to go under contract within 72 hours. We couldn't have been happier with our decision to use Jaclyn Smith Properties as a buyer and a seller.

- Dr. Cole Bradburn

Megan has been there for 100% of the time when we had questions, concerns and helping to choose the right house. Very prompt in returning calls and getting answers. She is knowledgeable about the in and outs of buying a house and I am sure she is just as diligent when it comes to selling a house as well. She is very personable, friendly and wants to help you find the house that is right for you. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor. She has been awesome to work with.

- Abdoulie kalley

It was a great experience working with Jaclyn Smith properties. They are always available to answer questions and made the whole home building process a painless experience. We love the quality and care they put into each home. Very professional and friendly staff. Thanks to all the staff, we love our home.

Almost 2 years ago my husband and I decided to make the big move to NC from upstate NY. We worked with the Jaclyn Smith Team and had the most amazing experience with Julie Jordan. Being so far away we thought it would be stressful but Julie made everything so easy and stress free. We recently decided to sell our house and move again, so of course we knew Julie would be the one to help. She made everything go, once again, smooth and stress free as can be. From late night phone calls to texts she was always there & always communicating. I couldn't imagine going through 2 moves with anyone else or any other team. If anyone is looking for an amazing experience with your selling/moving journey i cannot recommend Julie Jordan enough, we will forever be grateful for all she has done for us.

- Caitlyn Masterman

Rachel was a tremendous help with setting me up to find and buy my first new home purchase. She came highly recommended through the development contacts in the area I was looking to settle into with a home buy, and she delivered across the board. She worked thoroughly with me over several months to find the right home for me inside my budget, area, and criteria for what I was hoping to find in a new home. I'd highly recommend anybody to her and thank her for all she helped do for me in finding the right place to call home!

Absolutely recommend Julie Jordan & JSP if you're a first time homebuyer like myself! Julie not only helped me learn all about the home buying process and answered all my questions along the way in a timely manner, she went above and beyond to make sure I got the home that I wanted and that everything went as smoothly as possible. She was a pleasure to work with and is incredibly knowledgeable about the market. I'll certainly be reaching out to her again in the future when it comes time to search for my next home.

- John Negoda

Megan Bland was friendly and professional from our first interaction, providing more than i had hope for in terms information, answers and guidance on the entire process. From the beginning all the way to the closing Megan exceeded my expectations for the responsibilities and services as an performing every task with integrity. I would highly recommend Megan Bland to those I know. Thanks again Megan!!!!

- Kenneth Jenkines

We couldn’t have been happier with our experience with Rachel. She stuck with us through this tough market and helped us get our dream home! We have already started recommending her to our family and friends.

- Jessica Nester

Jaclyn Smith was more than prepared when we toured several neighborhoods in and around Clayton. We bombarded her with questions which she had the answers to them all. From comps, to lot prices, to school information. I would highly recommend Jaclyn to anyone interested in Clayton and surrounding areas.

- George Fisher

Highly recommend The Jaclyn Smith Team! Buyer's Agent, Julie Jordan and Closing Coordinator, Rachel Ventura were stalwart in working through our sale process! They are a very professional and seasoned in their respective fields of expertise.

- Brian and Teresa Frazier

Rachel Leeworthy has been a blessing to us. With the COVID has been tough. Rachel has pulled us out of every problem . She will always be on our side as buyer's. I will definitely recommend everyone to her . She's a very hard worker. And makes you feel special through all of the inconveniences of buying a home in COVID times.

- Sharon Harrington

Jaclyn and her team were great!! Communicated with us every step of the way. Could not have asked for better service.

- Susan Jones

Jaclyn and Jenn did the impossible, we were so very impressed! We had a very difficult property but they staged and posted the property to its best advantage and we got numerous offers in 5 days plus a couple of backup offers as well. When we weren't sure the deal was going to be able to happen,  they found a solution! She, Jenn, and her team are fast, knowledgeable, gracious, kind, and very professional. They all did an exceptional job, and when the going got tough, they got us through it successfully! Can't imagine getting through that without them! We highly recommend them.

- Sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Clayton, NC.

Made the processes of both buying and selling SO easy as a family with two small children. They we're able to schedule showings as close together as possible and mostly when we were out of town so that we didn't have to worry about constantly cleaning the house! Absolutely would recommend them to  anyone!

- S.J. Beloso

My family and I moved to Clayton from out of state and Jaclyn Smith Properties made the process so easy and enjoyable. We are now getting ready to list our house and have full faith in Jaclyn and her team. We highly recommend!

- Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Clayton, NC.

Jaclyn made a stressful process much easier on a busy family. She was helpful and supportive, meeting our needs throughout the purchase and sale of our home.

- Bought and sold a home in 2017

She and her family are such great people. They have found their calling. If your looking for a house there is no other agent you should call

- Patrick Parks

I would like to extend a major thank you to the entire JSP team for hosting such a generous event. It was great to meet the entire JSP team. From day one, they were instrumental to making my transition to North Carolina such an enjoyable experience. JSP's team is truly a class organization and I highly recommend them going forward!

- H. Ranke

We had a great real estate experience with Jaclyn Smith Properties. They represented the builder well and kept us abreast every step of the way

- Sheryl Merritt

The staff at Jaclyn Smith Properties made purchasing my new home a seamless and enjoyable experience. They were communicative, honest, and detail-oriented. My realtor was confident in assuring me that they would be fantastic to work with from agreeing on terms for a contract, to the building of the home with One27Homes and financing through their lender, the walk throughs, any issues prior to closing, to closing and beyond. She was absolutely correct in her faith in their expertise throughout the entire process and even sent me a beautiful handmade cutting board after I closed and moved in. I highly recommend Jaclyn Smith and One27Homes to anyone interested in purchasing a home.

- Keli Adams

- Sheila ObrIen
We rented a house in a community called Riverwood in Clayton for a year with Jaclyn Smith Properties. Our home was awesome, they even installed a fence which we paid monthly for.
Blake always made sure anything that needed to be fixed was done so in a timely matter. Connor was always available and friendly. Joan came on board after we were already renting and she was so friendly and quick to return our emails. As of right now our move out hasn’t been completed but I’m 100% sure she will not nickel and dime us like other property management companies. We’ve lived in 13 rentals and Jaclyn smith properties is the only company I could honestly recommend.
- Victoria Moberg

Jaclyn Smith and her team (GL, Austin, and Megan) along with One27 Homes are great companies to work with. I've done over 10 new construction transactions with their team and had great experiences every time. They offer a great product at an affordable price and don't nickle and dime their customers as they include a lot of great features in their homes. Look forward to many more transactions and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a quality home in Clayton!

- Dwayne Dixon

Great experience with them since they took over MStreet. Joan has been phenomenal and quick with responses. We leased a housed with then which has been a great experience.

- Chris Hodge

Jaclyn Smith & GL Woodard were our listing agents when selling our house in Archer Lodge, our buyers agents on our dream home, as well as our buyers agent on multiple investment properties. They were super friendly & responsive! They guided us through the whole process. On our personal house we ended up selling it in the first week it was on the market and for more than other houses in our area!! On each of our investment properties we ended up with a great ROI! We will definitely use them again in the future!

The new Parkview residential development in Clayton is a hidden treasure. My wife and I were looking to buy and found this place. From day one we have had no problems getting a new home built. Smooth sailing every step. I am an electrical contractor so I have been in thousands of developments. This is by far like nothing I have ever seen. After we moved in Meghan and the other office people were very quick to find answers to any question we may have had. We did find very small problems after moving in but Victor, the superintendent, was actually ringing out doorbell within minutes! Show me a builder who does this?
Bottom line.....amazing people. Amazing product. Of you are looking to move you better get here quick because these homes are selling faster than they can build them. The price is more than fair as well.

From the first time we met Rachel Leeworthy we knew she was the person we wanted to work with. Rachel helped us locate the exact type of home we were looking for in a beautiful neighborhood. She was a trusted advocate as we navigated the challenging home buying process in these unprecedented times. Highly recommended!

- Nick & LeeAnn

I wanted to say “Thank You” for the very nice corkscrew/bottle opener that I received recently! It was a very nice surprise, and I appreciate Jaclyn Smith Properties recognizing and celebrating my one year gone anniversary! I love my new home!! :) Best Regards, Wendy Jeffries, 57 S Oscar Lane/Goodwin Chase

- Wendy Jeffries

I had a great experience working with Rachel Leeworthy of Jaclyn Properties. Rachel helped my sister (currently living in Michigan) and me, find a home in Smithfield. The one thing, of many that I truly appreciated was Rachel's responsiveness. My time is precious, and although I am sure Rachel was joggling many clients, she made me feel as though I was her number one priority. She was always very prepared and very efficient. "SHE" was the key that made the entire buying process a good one. I will definitely call Rachel if I am looking to sell or buy a home. THANK YOU, and kudos to Rachel and Jaclyn Properties.

- BEVERLY GARRETT

Mark helped us sell and buy our new home. He was very patient, understanding, professional, and he helped us through the stresses of building a new home. I highly recommend him! He did an amazing job, and if we ever sell and buy again we will call him. Thank you Mark!

- Holly Baker

We were very pleased and impressed with our home buying experience working with Rachel Leeworthy with Jaclyn Smith Properties. Right away we noticed Rachel’s personable people skills and her quick responsiveness. We connected with her right away and felt like she really cared and did her best to listen and understand our needs to find the right home in the right location. She was very patient and professional guiding us threw a brutal buyer’s market. It was very intimidating to us and we really appreciated Rachel’s calm demeanor, determination, and skills to work around obstacles. We felt like we had made a good friend all said and done. Bob and Sonya Flora

Rachel of Jaclyn Smith Properties assisted me in finding a home in Smithfield. She was always very willing and ready to assist with "ANY" thing that I needed. Always very punctual and always very prepared. She made the buying process of my new home very easy. KUDOS to Rachel for her professionalism and her going the extra mile on all my needs.

- Delois Wynne

I worked with Jaclyn through the sales of two different properties over several years. The first sale I had initially initiated through a different realtor and after a year on the market decided to give Jaclyn a chance. What an awesome decision!! The property was under contract in 9 days!! The second property 2 1/2 years later I listed with Jaclyn and was under contract in 8 days!!! Jaclyn is just an awesome person to work with!! She is very down to earth and very enjoyable to do business with. You meet her and feel you've known her your whole life. I can't really say enough good about her and think anyone would enjoy having her as your realtor.

- Mike Gomez

Rachel Leeworthy is an exceptional realtor and a wonderful person. I started the process of buying a home in North Carolina by randomly calling realtors that I found online. Rachel stood out from the beginning with her prompt response and willingness to go the extra mile for her clients. It was difficult finding a house in this competitive seller’s market and complicated because I lived in Pennsylvania at the time.

Rachel was patient and took the time to learn all about me and my needs. She was determined to find exactly what I wanted in a house including the right location. For example, I wanted enough land to be able to have a pool installed. Most builders would not guarantee that because of the septic systems. Rachel took the initiative to find homes that she knew I would like and toured them for me while I attended virtually. Something that I have never seen in a realtor is the compassion and understanding that Rachel possesses.

There were times when I felt extremely frustrated with the process, especially being out of state. Rachel had a calming and insightful way of assuring me that everything would be all right. I had a lot of questions throughout the process, and she always responded promptly and made sure they were answered. In the end, she found the perfect home for me, which was not easy. During the home building process, Rachel stayed in constant contact with me and communicated and advocated with the builder’s representatives on my behalf. She helped me to secure the things that were important to me in a house.

Rachel possesses all the professional and personal qualities that anyone could desire in a real estate agent. Overall, it was an incredibly positive experience and I wholeheartedly recommend her for your buying or selling needs.

- Sharon McLendon

My husband and I would like to share our home buying (note the word Home) experience. Jaclyn Smith was completely focused on finding the perfect home for us, not selling a house. Every detail on our Want To Have List was addressed with care and interest. We were out of state buyers, so attention to detail was very important. All questions or concerns were answered promptly by the Next Steps Team. We have found our Dream Home and would invite you to begin your search with Jaclyn Smith properties.

- Nancy and Bill Andrusic

I must say it was a pleasure working with Rachel for my home search. Rachel was very informative and communication was great .Truly fun and energetic. She cares about finding you the right home while being very knowledgeable and patient. There is no other Agent that gets my recommendation. Find Rachel at HTR for all your home searching needs.

- Kelvin Britton

Jaclyn made a stressful process easier for a busy family. She was supportive and helpful throughout the purchase and sale of our home. We would recommend her to any family looking to make Clayton their home!

- Maureen Finn

Don't normally post reviews, but I felt as though JSP was a significant part in selling my home. I was long distant from my home in Clayton, NC. I was able to work with Jaclyn and her team to prep the home, agree to a sells price, list, and sell the home quickly. The process was very spelled out and my expectations were exceeding as they did a great job keeping me fully informed. Highly recommend them if your thinking about selling your home!

- Jonathan Thomas

I had the pleasure of working with Megan Bland from Jaclyn Smith Properties and she made the whole experience so easy for me. This lady will get everything done right away, she knows time is money so she doesn't waste it. All the info and documents that I needed were provided in a timely manner. She’s definitely a go getter and I recommend working with her a 100%.

- Sandra Brewington

Purchasing a new home is always like a new adventure and I can only say that thanks to and for Megan Bland's assistance and persistence we were able to move into or new home. Thanks Megan, we couldn't have done it without you. Carl & Tena

- Carl Casper

Megan did a great job helping us sell our home. She was kind and flexible when needed. She helped us prepare our home for photos and showings. Megan always showed up with a positive attitude and a smile that did not go unappreciated. I would recommend her to any friends and family in the area!

- Mell Witt

My story has a great ending thanks to Megan. My daughter’s family decided to move to North Carolina to further their careers. They had FIVE WEEKS To find right area and a home basically sight unseen. They were successful so you think they would have recommended their agent to me. But They felt the agent was to say the least unhelpful. After looking on my own for two months my daughter found Megan Brand.She went way beyond my expectation. She was available and informative for all the showing I put her through. Megan help me prioritize my needs. She noted what in each place was an issue for me and that gave her insight into what I really wanted. Even though I threw her a curved and switch property during due diligence she did not even blink. Three days later had accepted bid on new property and withdrew from prior. Megan attention to details was impressive. Would recommend highly! Thanks Megan!

- Don Bender

HUGE thank you to Rachel Leeworthy for helping me purchase my first home! As a first time home buyer, I was extremely unsure on how to navigate the real estate market. My family recommended Rachel and I have no regrets. She has been amazing at every step of the process (explaining each stage and advocating for me wherever needed). Rachel has been extremely flexible in driving to Durham and helping schedule showings as soon as possible. She's easy to contact and talk to. I would 110% recommend Rachel to friends and family.

- Taylor Stevens

I’m so grateful Mark and I worked together for this move. He’s prompt, organized, clear, and always pleasant, whether it’s looking at homes or answering questions. He was made for this job. Every referral, exchange, you name it, he was a delight and worth every penny working with buyers, sellers, builders, lenders, and attorneys. Im not sure he’s human; he’s too good to be true. Mark phenomenally has the patience of a saint. Let’s face it, moving can be stressful (some might say a nightmare) and he made the transition a dream. For anyone looking to buy or sell or who’s had a rough go with realtors previously, I urge you to work with this man. No regrets.

- Kimberly Evans

I have worked with Megan on multiple occasions. Each time, she has shown sincere interest in learning about each system of the home. From the framing stage of brand new homes, to the ins and outs of existing homes, Megan is very knowledgeable! She is also a fantastic communicator and replies to requests immediately. I look forward to working with her in the future and I am positive that her clients would say the same.

- Randy Berry

Julie Jordan and JSP was amazing to work with. My husband and I came to her with a vision on what we wanted and she worked hard to find us exactly what we were looking for. We were very particular so the process was a little lengthy, but Julie always kept us grounded in finding our dream home without pressure. She was knowledgeable and super responsive when I had questions or wanted to shift the scope of our search. I was also able to use her as a thought partner when selecting aspects of our custom build! Ultimately, Julie was amazing to work with, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to find their dream home!
