Jessica and her team ROCK! Our house was on the market for 12 days and the rest is history! Pictures are key in my opinion and I have always loved seeing Jessica's listings due to the phenomenal pictures posted! You won't be disappointed, I promise!

Jessica and Carolyn were awesome to work with! Their knowledge of the local market allowed them to find us a new home that was perfect for our family. They also worked very hard to set up showings to sell our home, which resulted in an offer (full asking price) just two days after we listed our home. Beyond all of that, they were on top of every detail, and helped get contractors to the house for repairs/estimates in a very short period of time. They were very responsive to emails/phone calls and made us feel like we were a top priority. We would highly recommend Jessica Edwards and Associates to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home in Wilmington!

We contacted the Jessica Edwards agency about a house we saw and met our agent Tori Harless. Tori was professional, helpful and quick to respond to our endless questions. She helped us target in on the area we were interested in, we found the neighborhood we wanted and purchased a home. She assisted us with setting up inspections and contractors plus all the negotiations with the sellers, all was appreciated because we live six hours away.
The agency's team also worked with us to arrange financing with Alpha Mortgage; Heath Altman handled the paperwork and it was a smooth process.
We have bought many houses and this was one of the smoothest transitions. We are thankful for the Jessica Edwards team.

My husband and I were fairly negative about the real estate business because of past experiences. However we knew we needed help selling our home. Our son recommended Jessica Edwards and the Carolinas Finest team. Jessica is not only professional but an agent with integrity. She communicates with you every step of the way and continually has your back from day one until after closing. She sold our house in 14 days and that says it all. I Highly recommend her to anyone considering buying or selling.

We worked with Jessica's buyers agent, Carolyn Byrnes, and had a great experience. She respected what we were looking for and worked hard to show us every house we asked to see. She never tried to apply any high pressure tactics to pick a home before we were completely comfortable. When we ended up going with new construction, she was an invaluable resource as a go-between between us and the builder as issues came up. We would definitely use her services again!

Jessica advised me to put my house on the market at the right time and for the right price! The buyer put an offer on my home within 24 hours of it going in the MLS and offered more than I asked! The whole process took less than a month and it was incredibly smooth!! It was my first time selling a house and I can't believe how easy it was. Jessica Edwards is a wonderful person, very respectable and responsive!

From the time Jessica and her team put the sign in our yard to closing on both the old house and the new house Carolyn found us was less than 7 weeks. (YEY for a ton of showings and going under contract super fast!) In that time, it was absolute craziness and I can 100% say this team made it as easy as possible on us. Jessica has built the most helpful team and has a person designated to each step of the process who will keep you informed and on top of things. They are simply the best!

Jessica and her team were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We were buying a lot to build on and were still living in DC. Her understanding of the local market and was very useful, as we were unfamiliar with it. We also required a bit of handholding through the due diligence and closing process, but they coordinated everything with the title agency, surveyor, and attorney's office to make the transaction smooth and painless. I wouldn't hesitate to call on Jessica again in the future.

We had a great experience working with Jessica Edwards and her team. We decided to sell a very unique home in the historic district of downtown Wilmington and we quickly found that comps were difficult to come by. We priced the home at a point we thought was fair and within three weeks we had an offer. To complicate things, we were selling the home remotely and all interaction with Jessica and her team had to be done over email and phone. They managed this process gracefully while keeping us very informed of every step along the way and within 6 weeks the property was listed and closed. Anyone looking to sell property in the Wilmington area would be well served if they worked with the Jessica Edwards team.

Jessica and her team are excellent Realtors! We could not be happier in her honest approach and knowledge of not only the area but what it takes to sell your house. She was very attentive to everything going on with the house and never did I have to call her for an update. She would call me before I could call her if there were any issues. We sold our house very quickly in this market and in a tough area where homes have been for sale for many months. We would recommend her and her team our family, friends and anyone interested in buying or selling a house in the Wilmington area.

Jessica was absolutely amazing to work with! Jessica helped us sell our rental property in one week, and our primary house in 3 months. Carolyn, who is also on Jessica's team helped us find our dream house as well! Jessica and her team were always available when we called with questions, gave expert advice, Jessica even helped me move furniture around for our house pics, and gave great staging advice to sell. Jessica and her team definitely made the house selling and buying experience much easier than we imagined. Her professionalism, confidence, negotiating skills, and AWESOME social media & marketing skills make her by far the BEST realtor in Wilmington! Kudos to Jessica and the entire Carolina's Finest team! Sincerely, The Heidenreichs

Jessica visited the 40-year-old residential property we wanted to sell. She made several astute recommendations to update the kitchen and baths that provided a great look at a reasonable price. After the renovations were completed, she came back to inspect and felt the property was ready for market. Within 24 hours, photos were taken and our house was listed on 5-6 real estate websites. The next week we received an offer and, shortly thereafter, closed on the sale.
I would recommend Jessica to anyone - she really knows her business, is creative and understands how to get the desired results. A "sold" sign in the front yard!!

I have listed 2 properties and purchased 1 over the past several years using Jessica and her team as my Realtors. They are the most knowledgable and loyal agents I have worked with and are always ahead of the curve with marketing and social media expertise as well as negotiation skills and neighborhood or market knowledge. I purchased a foreclosure in one of Wilmingtons most sought after neighborhoods and without Jessica and team I would not have been able to negotiate and navigate my way through the process and would not have gotten such a great deal. Call her...you will be glad you did!
