In March 2017 I had the good fortune to work with real estate agent Juanita (Nita) McClellan to locate and purchase investment property in Jacksonville, Florida. I have known Nita for a long time (25+ years) and have firsthand knowledge of her expertise in this type of deal. Many years ago Nita was my landlord. When I lived in her property, she always treated me fairly, made sure the maintenance was up to par, etc. I had a super satisfying rental experience with her. When someone treats you that well it inspires trust and loyalty (sometimes friendship as well). Fast forward to this year, I was looking for Florida investment property and was frustrated with the search experience in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. I decided to look north to Duval County, and Nita was my immediate choice for buyer’s representation. Nita did extensive research, pulled comps, and made recommendations to meet my investment goals. She helped me narrow it down to two areas of JAX and we monitored the available inventory. When something came up and it looked like a good fit, Nita did the walk through for me, taking videos with commentary and simultaneous honest evaluation of the property in consideration of my goals. I made an offer, sight unseen, based upon the information provided by Nita. We are now several months after closing and I couldn’t be happier with the purchase or the experience. Many times people say don’t do business with a friend – yet I can tell you that NOT ONE TIME did Nita sit back or try to slide by on the basis of our friendship. She was in realtor mode during the entire process and had my back each step of the way. In addition to representing my interests, Nita was able to make some top-notch referrals – local mortgage broker, insurance agent, attorney, and even a superb handyman to repair some items for the tenants! Not many real estate professionals can provide such in-depth or complete information like Nita. She not only represents you, she educates you, in a way that never makes you feel stupid. I went into every transaction from the offer to the closing feeling prepared, empowered, and knowledgeable. BTW, this was my *very first* investment deal and no one knew it but Nita! Cannot wait to build up equity and buy my next property with her. Bottom line? Highly recommended, A+++++++++++++, a 200% grade A realtor.

I wanted to take a moment and let you know what a great experience we had with purchasing our condo through your firm with Nita McClellan as our agent. It’s hard to explain to you how patient and pleasant Nita is to work with. Due to the circumstances in the market, we had to go through around four to five iterations at finding my family a suitable home (I almost lost count). Even after we had to walk away from two separate contracts due to issues that surfaced in inspections and appraisals, and unsuccessfully bid on a couple more she never showed any less drive or diligence. She even worked through the July 4th holiday to ensure our contract was first in line to be considered, and was accepted! I also want to thank anyone else who helped support Nita through this deal as I know this was a team effort. I would highly recommend your firm and Nita due to her outstanding service and performance while working on this project.
