Client success stories
Nothing makes me happier than seeing my clients fully realize their real estate goals.
"You will be in great hands with Jess Powers as your agent. My husband and I purchased our home during a competitive market. Not only did Jess provide us with expertise and professionalism every step of the way, she was also able to get our offer accepted in a multiple offer situation. Her personal experience with multiple home renovations/rehabs helped tremendously when looking at homes and through the final inspection. Additionally, she's continues to be a valuable resource for home owner questions and referrals. She definitely will have us as clients for life!"
"Jess has been a very important part of our family's journey. She found our first multifamily home in Providence. We dismissed the property several times, and after Jess continued suggesting we give it some consideration, we thought we'd oblige her and go for a tour. We were surprised when we immediately could see the potential and felt like it was the right home for us, and we bought it! Best life-changing decision we could have made, thanks to Jess.She provided the information and guidance we needed as first time homebuyers and helped us manage the process. Since then Jess has helped us through a few more purchases as our family has grown and we continue to invest in RI and MA properties. As a licensed mortgage loan originator now myself, I can trust that Jess will take great care in guiding my clients, same has she has done for me and my family for years."
“Thanks! Donna We first met Donna Marks 15 years ago when she worked seamlessly and professionally with our relocation agent to land us our California dream home. When it came time for us to downsize last summer, Donna was our #1 choice for managing the process. She provided honest feedback about staging and targeted home improvements, developed a great marketing plan, managed all the inspections, and was always available to answer any questions and just to talk “out loud.”Through her amazing connections and outstanding network, she was able to find the perfect family to purchase our house. Her integrity is unmatched. She is relatable, reliable and always ready to provide the best to her clients. We look forward to our next house hunting adventure with Donna leading the way.”

"Jess was absolutely incredible. When we bought our first home, we bought directly from sellers in a place we already lived, so our experience selling and buying a new home was completely new. We really couldn't have asked for a better realtor and guide through the process. Jess was so knowledgable, in ways I didn't even expect - like being familiar with furnaces and plumbing at properties we looked at.She advised us on exactly what we needed to do in order to sell our place at the price we wanted, and she did it - in less than three days, we were under contract to sell our place. She got us right into places we wanted to see, and gave us a secret tip to sway the seller to choose us for the home we bought. I recommend Jess to anyone - buying or selling!"
"Jess went above and beyond to help our family purchase our first home. Our family had a lot of needs for our dream home, and we went into the housing market with practically no idea what we were doing. Jess helped us every step of the way, and ensured we had a full understanding of the home buying process. Her resourcefulness and tenacity helped us work through a very competitive market, and her network of contractors, loan officers, and attorneys helped us ensure we had the best support possible. We highly recommend her as an incredibly reliable and professional partner for folks looking to buy a home. Thank you Jess!"
“We worked with Jess as new, first time homebuyers - we had wanted to move to Providence and buy our first home but weren't sure where to start. Jess was incredibly kind and professional from the first phone call to today, where she continues to give great recommendations and help wherever she can, even post closing on the home. I can't say enough good things about Jess or stress how lucky and grateful we are to have found her, she is the best!Especially thinking above and beyond on how to get our offers to stand out and make sure that we understood what was happening every step of the way. She was always available, even for last minute texts to see houses and was incredibly responsive at every point. Long story short, Jess is a gem of a find!”
