"Jackie may be the most knowledgeable agent you will ever come across! She knows the ins and outs of the development and building process, which was super helpful! If there is ever a question she doesn’t know, you can count on her to find out. Jackie is a hands-on agent, hiking boundaries right along side of us, even on steep slope lots. She was patient with us and regardless of how many lots we looked at, she was always willing to keep searching to show us what else may be out there. In summary, she was diligent, friendly, and honest. What more could one ask for in an agent."
Shannon and Stephan

"Jackie has been an awesome real estate agent! She checked on the property regularly and made sure it was always on the forefront for potential buyers and real estate agents to see. There is no doubt that without her hard work our house would have taken much longer to sell. Thanks Jackie!"
William Hudson

"From the start, Jackie zeroed in on our requirements, tastes, and quirks. Our daily itinerary was constructed to maximize efficiency without the usual burnout associated with house hunting. Once we zeroed in on our dream property, Jackie was an amazing resource connecting us with trades people and services to help fill in the missing pieces. When the usual fear, uncertainty, and doubt reared its ugly head, Jackie proved to be the consummate professional, providing subtle guidance without the least bit of pressure in any direction. Once we locked and loaded, Jackie was on top of the process making sure that the path remained clear to the target closing date. On a personal level, we feel that Jackie is our first friend in our chosen retirement relocation area and look forward to a lasting relationship as we settle into our new life. Anyone relocating to the greater Asheville area would be well advised to hook up with Jackie for the combination of area knowledge, professionalism and integrity that made this a special experience for us. Thank you Jackie!!"
Polly and Jim

"Jackie Tatelman is a rock star realtor. We saw her ad in the WNC Green Builders Guide and knew instantly we would call and interview her. Turns out it was the wise move. Jackie has an excellent network of fellow real estate professionals, specialty contractors and a extensive list of clients. As a home builder herself she knows a lot about construction and what a home should do and not do. She is ALL cowgirl with the hat!

When I got a job offer in the State of Washington we had to move fast. Jackie walked us through the process of selling our house with expertise and anticipated all of our questions and concerns. While I was in route to the new job Jackie allayed my concerns and reduced my anxiety of leaving it for my wife to deal with the myriad details of presenting and showing the house. She went out of her way to make sure the cats were secure, the house secure and everything was tidy while my wife was finishing her tenure at work. Jackie and her able assistant really pulled through.
Jackie' estimate of how long it might take to secure a buyer was wrong though......turns out it did not take as long. Her website had an excellent representation of  our house and what we as owners were proud of. We found the perfect buyer who would continue to steward our beautiful property!
I highly recommend Jackie to any homeowner who wants a caring professional; someone who is on your side and will watch your back. She even found us a great agent in our new state of Washington.  Sincerely, Kirby Hawn"

"Jackie was open to showing us any property we requested--house or land. Jackie pointed out strengths and weaknesses of each property when asked. She suggested what problems we could easily fix and which ones would require more work. Once we decided on a house, Jackie strongly encouraged us to order an inspection within five days in order to give the seller plenty of time to make corrections. She knew exactly whom to call at the bank to arrange a pre-approved loan letter within 30 minutes. She offered us the names of numerous people whom we can contact for painting, tiling, plumbing, and electrical work. Jackie was on time and was always available for texts and emails long after regular working hours."

"Jackie Tatelman is a very organized and strategic advocate for her clients. She stays two or three steps ahead of the process and is tenacious and reasonable in negotiation. Jackie helped us sell our house - she and her team created a very thorough website to advertise our house, which included many more details than the MLS listing for interested buyers. After we put it on the market our moving timeline changed. Through some magic, Jackie connected us with the right buyer and a shorter escrow period so that we closed on the perfect date. Jackie was tremendously helpful in offering the resources that we needed to manage the transition process in our move. We highly recommend Jackie Tatelman!"
Marion Yeager

"Jackie- you are amazing! Thank you so much for guiding us through this transition process successfully and on a schedule we couldn't have dreamed of when we began! WOW We so appreciate your organizational skills and tenacity!"

"Hi Jackie,
     Just wanted to say Thank You, for marketing and selling our land. Your Hospitality was beyond kindness. It was also a pleasure to work with someone who puts the customer's interest to heart. Also many thanks for keeping us updated on showing and peoples interest in the property. We would also like to say Thank You for that outstanding breakfast at the bakery, that was AWESOME. You are a very special person to us and again thanks for your kindness. Note to anyone else other than Jackie that may read this if you are looking for a outstanding realtor Jackie Tatelman is the person to go to.
Tom and Beverly

"In all my 40 years of buying homes, I have never had a realtor who paid so much attention to detail and made the whole process stress free. If you need someone who is very hard working, straightforward and a good listener, then call Jackie!"
Dale Smith, Charleston, SC

"So there I was, minding my own business, not thinking I was causing a problem, when all of a sudden, this serious-looking woman showed up with some kind of implement. Well, being a rattlesnake, I figured it was time to get out of there! Lucky for me, it was Jackie Tatelman. Instead of chopping off my head, she helped me find my new home, and I couldn't be happier. if she could do it for me, I'll bet she could do it for you, too! (But without the implement.)"

Jackie Tatelman - Snake Relocation Expert

"Jackie Tatelman expertly guided us through the process of selling our home, including preparing for market, staging our home, highlighting the best features of the property, and negotiating repairs. Jackie has extensive knowledge of real estate processes and also has an extensive network of local resources who can help in any phase of marketing, selling, or doing necessary repairs. Throughout, Jackie was extremely responsive to any of our questions or concerns and also worked very well with the buyers agent, which helped a lot. In all, this was the smoothest real estate transaction we have experienced."
Beth L & Marty A Black Mtn. Sellers

"We loved working with Jackie to sell our home. She was extremely helpful throughout our process of updating, staging and listing our home for sell, and our hard work paid off as we were under contract within 24 hours of listing!! We will definitely work with Jackie again in the future!"
Lisa C & Steve A Sellers Black Mountain

"Jackie is a terrific Realtor. She is on top of everything and will see personally to every detail leaving nothing to chance. She goes the extra mile to make things happen and seems to always be ahead of the game. I could not have picked a better Realtor."
Rubi R. FL seller

"We relocated from Texas to North Carolina and found that the house buying process has some differences. When we spoke to Jackie about having to sell our house in TX she found us a local realtor who suited us perfectly by staging our home and it sold in a few weeks. When we were ready to buy in NC she explained the process clearly answered our questions immediately and if she did not have a clear answer she guided us to others who had the knowledge. She gave us helpful suggestions throughout the process and her negotiation skills were spot on. We loved working with her."
Marcella T & Bill V Austin TX

"Moving is a stressful experience. A long distance move combined with downsizing is particularly stressful! Beginning a year in advance of my decision to move south Jackie offered numerous possibilities and was ready for me when I finally arrived in Asheville. Throughout the ten months from purchase to settlement for my much smaller, new construction house, Jackie was a reassuring presence. If I sent a text or email, she responded almost instantaneously with a written response or phone call. I find her to be an amazing and warm person! She handled my brother’s move south and he liked her so much he referred her to me. I am equally happy with her work on my behalf. She alleviated my concerns from start to finish. I heartily recommend her to any buyer or seller!"
Linda Engwall

"Finding a new home can be challenging on so many levels.
It can be especially difficult when life itself gets in the way
and even Mother Nature acts like it’s not a good idea.
That’s what my wife and I faced as we made our decision
to move from Maine to North Carolina. We might still be
living in Maine, probably in a motel, if it hadn’t been for
our realtor. We don’t often think in terms of realtors going
beyond the line of duty but in the case of Jackie Tatelman
of Dawn Wilson Realty, that’s exactly what she did. Not
just once, but over and over again. Faced with what seemed
like one hurdle after another… such as a tree limb falling
through the roof of the first house we put a down payment
on while our inspector was actually inspecting the home to
a deadline fast approaching on our need to vacate our home
in Maine. We were in as bad a situation as one could
possibly imagine and then some. If it hadn’t been for
Jackie, we might never have found a way out. She worked
tirelessly in spite of all our daily setbacks.
Right up to the closing, she was the only one who never
succumbed to the almost daily soap opera that was our
move from hell. As we sit in our new home, a little over a
month since we moved in, we think back on the seemingly
insurmountable problems we faced knowing that if it hadn’t
been for Jackie’s tenacity and dedication to her profession,
we would still be stuck between Maine and North Carolina
searching for an exit.
Dawn Wilson Realty is extremely lucky to have her in their
Dennis & Janice Corso

"Jackie Tatelman is an excellent real estate professional. She is responsive, knowledgeable, resourceful, and ethical. Jackie is also personable and kind. Jackie is an advocate for her clients. I trust her. Finding a property is a significant commitment for most people. You need a great real estate professional but also someone you trust and who makes the process worthwhile. Jackie Tatelman gets my strongest recommendation on all accounts."
Black Mountain Buyer

"Friend of a friend referred me to Jackie in our search for a second home in the Asheville area. Jackie responded immediately to my email, worked with us in compiling listings, met with us at convenient times, showed us a range of properties, and ultimately facilitated our purchase of a home that we are thrilled with. Much of this was accomplished while I was in Florida so working from a distance was feasible. I have recommended Jackie to others I know who are interested in finding a residence in the Asheville area. Jackie know the area very well so she can save people time in terms of identifying the ideal location."
David J. Florida Buyer

"When we started looking to buy a house in Asheville, all we knew about it was how beautiful the area was and how much people loved living there in retirement. We chose Jackie to be our realtor because of reviews we had read extolling her professionalism, easy personality, and amazing work ethic. All of these proved to be true. Jackie has an extensive knowledge of Asheville and the surrounding communities, and she worked tirelessly for us in searching for a home. She is a delight to work with; not only is she engaging, thoughtful, and funny, but she was incredibly responsive to all of our requests and questions. She also has outstanding negotiation skills. We are convinced that there is no better realtor in the Asheville area than Jackie, and we give her our highest recommendation."
Jim & Ann Schroeder, Wisconsin

"We were paired with Jackie through the Creative Retirement Exploration Weekend at UNC-Asheville in conjunction with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (plug for them, also). Being from Michigan, we really hadn’t considered Western North Carolina as a location for us but Jackie made us take a long look at the area. In the end, we decided now was not the time for us to make that move but not for her lack of trying.
Jackie is the consummate professional in how she treated us in trying to find what needs and wants worked for us. We made a few trips to look at houses and Jackie made sure our time and travel wasn’t wasted, to the point of looking for potential houses while we were heading to NC as well as while down there. Her knowledge of all things real estate wise in that area, including the market, value, location, amenities, and procedures, were geared to our particular needs and situation. In a nutshell, she got what we wanted and tailored her skills to give us a quality experience.
But better than that, we acquired a new friend. She was genuinely interested in us and how our lives had brought us to the situation we were exploring. We loved her knowledge of the area and her sharing many of the details while looking at houses. She gave us great recommendations for things to see or places to eat during our visit when we’re not looking at properties. She not only made our house hunting productive, but made our entire time spent in the area worthwhile and interesting.
We would recommend Jackie Tatelman to anyone looking to buy in the Asheville/Western NC area."
Alan and Pam Boydston, Michigan Buyers

"We have been very happy in working with Jackie Tatelman regarding our plan to relocate to the Asheville/Black Mountain area.
Jackie has listened carefully to what we are looking for, and assisted us in finding possible appropriate properties. She has never pressured us to buy something that did not feel right to us. In addition, she has provided useful information about the area, which we could not know as non-residents. She never made us feel rushed, and has been very reliable in responding to all communications, and meeting us on time for appointments.
We plan to work with her until we find what we are looking for, and have no need to search elsewhere for a realtor."
Donna and George Allison

"We would highly recommend Jackie. She is professional and very patient. She truly listens and wants to understand your needs when looking for a home. We are from out of state and not familiar with the area. Jackie is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She answers your text or email quickly with any questions or concerns you may have. On a personal note, she is a great person to get to know."
Karen & Kevin O. New Jersey

"Jackie- Thank you so much for being an amazing realtor. You helped our family with getting ready for the market and making an unbelievably fast sale and for the price target we wanted. Then to top it off you connected us to realtor who fit our needs to purchase in another state. Your knowledge of the market and area in Black Mountain was fantastic. The time and attention you gave us and our home was helpful throughout the whole process. We are so glad we went with you as a local realtor. Thank you."
The Miller Family, Black Mountain

"Jackie- We want to thank you again for all your hard work helping us find a home in Asheville that is right for us. We know we've changed directions at almost every turn, and we are so grateful for your understanding and continued efforts on our behalf. It is such a pleasure to work with you. We feel confident we will find the right home with your expert knowledge, guidance, and wonderfully positive attitude!"
Ann & Jim S., Chicago

"I am retired now, but I was a home inspector for over twenty five years, and I personally knew hundreds of realtors. In terms of honesty, quality of service, total knowledge, and availability, Dawn Wilson is way above them all. Dawn sold my house at 812 Laurel Avenue, Black Mountain, NC, in 2013. I was delightfully pleased with how she handled everything, from the very first phone call until long after the closing, with any follow-up matters that needed tending to. In 2010 (I think that is the correct year), Dawn sold my ex-wife's house at 810 Laurel avenue, Black Mountain. She handled it with the same level of personal attention and professional skill. In 2011 (I think that is the correct year), Dawn patiently went through many months of extensive searching for the right house for a dear friend of mine, finding the exact right purchase at 211 Woodland Drive, Swannanoa, NC. It was my friend's first house, and she was nervous. Dawn handled the entire procedure with genuine kindness, thoroughness, and endless patience. I, and many others I know who have bought or sold property from Dawn; we are her voluntary promoters, gladly encouraging others to partake and enjoy the experience of a real estate transaction. I shall continue to recommend her to everyone I can. She really is that good; exceptional, even! She is dedicated to her work with a professional quality and personal sincerity in such a way that it needs to be experienced to be fully appreciated."
Bill Altork

"You [Dawn] have been absolutely AMAZING through this entire process and have our heartfelt thanks!! There's a reason your office is growing!"
Pamela Courcy

"After several months of looking for a realtor, my wife and I were becoming a bit dismayed. Calls were either unanswered or there was a lack of perceived professionalism. Then serendipity struck and we were introduced to you- Jackie Tatelman We knew right away that we wanted to work with you. It was evident that your vast knowledge coupled with your low pressure approach, was exactly what we were looking form. In every house we toured, your input about the pros and cons of each property was an education that helped us narrow down our choices. Once we found our “Home”, you were with us every step of the way. From due diligence, negotiations, confirming repairs and requests, as well all legal matters, you worked behind the scenes overseeing the process. And, your communication was fantastic, keeping us in the loop every day, via email and/or phone. In a world of mediocrity & self-interest you are a cut above the rest. Thank you for helping us find our dream home."
Matthew and Dasha, NYC

"Jackie, will keep you in mind if we decide to buy more land or home. You are a great realtor."
Jamie Ashley, FL

"Dawn was first of all a fierce and knowledgeable protector of my rights and my needs and my wallet regarding the purchase of the home she showed me that I had fallen completely in love with. She was also friendly and funny (at the right times and in the right way, which eased the tension considerably when I most needed it).
She was also an invaluable and quick resource for reliable and affordable contractors of all kinds who gave me exceptionally quick and efficient and solid service -- perhaps particularly because they know the reference has come from her.
I have worked with realtors before and I have to say I have never seen anyone who was more on target in terms of making sure everything -- dozens of details -- went absolutely perfectly smoothly. Not only that, but she also cleaned up a number of messes in documents and time schedules that were created and left by other professionals in the transaction."

"Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your wonderful help, guidance, patience and laughter. You [Dawn] made this process so enjoyable and easy peasy!
Biggest hugs and love..."
C (and L!!)

"Jackie, I just want to send you a BIG thank you for your assistance and guidance in helping me find, purchase and close on my new home. Your excellent service, frequent communications and professionalism made the process so much easier!
I really appreciated your attention to detail and I certainly recommend your services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Thanks again."
Mary Rysavy

"Dawn helped us sell two homes and to buy one. We found her to be very knowledgeable, trustworthy and professional. She was recommended to us by friends and we have and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in WNC. She takes great care of her clients every step of the way. Do yourself a favor and get Dawn on your team."

"So many good things to say about Sue Francisco; professional, kind, and patient. Sincere in helping you find “the right home”. I LOVE my log cabin!"
Jerrie McCracken

"Sue made our first experience with home buying a true adventure. My husband and I had different ideas of what our dream house would be but Sue was always aware of us both. She chose houses for us that met both of our ideas, and when we decided it wasn't for us she would graciously compose a new list of possibles. Combining "newer and spacious, move in ready" with "old charm and adding my own touch" wasn't an easy task but she took a willing spirit and found us our dream house! The memories of house hunting with her still bring smiles to our faces and we will forever be fond of her for her patience and dedication to our dream."
Mrs. Ashley Styles
Kindergarten Teacher

"You [Sybil Argintar] are a great agent and I really appreciate you. You are absolutely on top of everything and very knowledgeable about all aspects related to selling and closing on properties...very rare and very appreciated. I have bought and sold a large number of properties and had learned to do my own research and not rely on an agent. You are the exception! Just wanted you to know! Thank you!"

"Jackie -- We both want to thank you for taking care of us through this process. You have been diligent, informative and have always been there when we called (even after hours) and always available, no matter what your own schedule was. It has been a pleasure having you as our agent. We hope we can conduct business with you again in the near future and I will recommend you when asked."
June & Roberto Vengoechea

"Thank you again for your friendship and love. You truly are a wonderful human being."
All set for closing tomorrow. Yeah! So happy you will finally get paid. You deserve every penny, Jackie. So great working with you. Thanks!"
Barbara A.

"Since we are from Massachusetts and mostly unfamiliar with the Asheville area, Jackie was as asset in many ways. Her efficiency and knowledge enabled us to focus and find land in an Eco development during the 5 days we were in Asheville last April. Jackie both accompanied us when we needed support and allowed us to drive-by homes on our own. Jackie is very accommodating as she responds quickly to emails, texts and phone calls throughout the day. Since we were staying in Asheville, Jackie suggested we meet over a simple but delicious Indian lunch in downtown Asheville. Shortly before we departed western North Carolina we signed an Offer to Purchase Contract over breakfast in an eatery on Black Mountain. We would highly recommend Jackie Tatelman."
Pete and Sue

"Hello, I am a local contractor in the town of Black Mountain. My family and I were selling our home we had built. I was a custom built with 3.5 acres full of organic garden and orchards. The home was located about 25 minutes outside of town. Jackie went to work for us creating the most beautiful portfolio of the home and land. All the details that we created that we love so much were highlighted. Our home was on every listing I could find. So in turn the house sold for what we needed. In the process of working with Jackie in the sell she got to know us, who we are and the things we like. So in the search of finding are new home it made is very easy. Jackie only brought us homes that she knew we would like. Saving us so much time and energy. We were under contract in 8 days of looking, and it felt so smooth and easy. I would highly recommend Jackie Tatelman."
Kevin Fowler, From The Ground Up Builders

"Hands down the best real estate agent around. Pleasant to work with, highly professional, fast to respond to your questions and needs. The entire process, from viewing to closing, was a pleasure thanks to Jackie. I highly recommend her without reservation to anyone looking to buy or sell their property."
J.K. Black Mountain

"I will always direct someone your way if they are interested in Asheville. We really love our house and are now working on the furnishings.
I just want to say again how much we appreciate the work you did for us. You immediately understood what we were looking for and expertly guided us thorough the process. We are so happy with the end result and look forward to life in Asheville.
Thanks so much."
Tom and Jane Engwall

"Jackie Tatelman - Utmost professional, honest, insightful, no-nonsense realty professional
We recently purchased a house in Hendersonville and Jackie Tatelman represented us as our realtor. We have worked with many real estate professionals in the last 20 years, and we can whole-heartedly say that Jackie is the best. From Day 1, Jackie worked to understand (and help us understand) exactly what we wanted in a new home. Jackie did not waste our time on houses she knew did not fit our profile (in fact, when we asked to see things she knew did not fit us, she gently, respectfully guided us on to better options). She is a very proactive communicator and consistently demonstrates outstanding attention to detail. Jackie always worked in our best interest and provided good advice during negotiations. She inherently knew when to offer her opinion and when to let us conclude for ourselves. Her support and professionalism were invaluable to us in finding our new vacation/retirement home.
If you are looking for a real estate agent in the WNC area, we highly recommend you speaking with Jackie. She will work tirelessly to find you the right home and, once you find it, provide excellent service in making sure you get the best deal possible. We cannot offer enough accolades regarding our experience with Jackie. From Day 1 to close (and beyond), we have been ecstatic with her customer service and ultimately our new home!"
Shelly and Steve Shadle

"I was just starting a search for property in the Asheville/Black Mountain/Old Fort areas of western North Carolina, and Jackie represented the seller on some land I wanted to look at. I was only in town for the weekend, so I reached out to her to show the property. I didn’t have an agent at that point. Jackie was out of town, but she orchestrated a showing for me and was incredibly responsive, even though she wasn’t available. I asked her to be my agent. We saw lots of properties over a couple of weekends, and Jackie consistently impressed me with her knowledge of the area and her objective opinions about the pros and cons of each property we saw. Additionally, she searched for and presented new properties. Once I decided which property I wanted to put an offer on, Jackie quickly handled the paperwork. After the owner countered, Jackie’s level headedness and professionalism helped me make what was an informed decision and the rest, as they say, is history. I’m now the proud owner of some beautiful land with a lovely, little house, and I couldn’t be happier. I HIGHLY recommend Jackie."
Claire Danielson, Buyer

"Jackie is a soup to nuts real estate agent. From our first conversations to decide whether or not to list with Jackie until closing day, Jackie was 'on it'. She built targeted marketing strategies tailored to our property, she got the word out to the market in a multitude of ways, she was responsive to questions and creative in her solutions, followed through on agreements and stayed on top of the task every step of the way. My brother (with whom I was selling the property) said of Jackie, 'Some real estate agents get the listing and don't do very much after that. I don't think we would have gotten the job done without Jackie.' I wholeheartedly agree with that assessment!"
Aline C, Seller

"Jackie was the most consummate seller’s realtor we’ve ever used. She understands the market was very inspired and creative in her handling and marketing of our property. Jackie was responsive to all our questions and needs. She communicates very well and on a regular basis. Jackie was always dependable and helpful. She goes above and beyond expectations and gets results."
Steve and Jane A, Sellers

"We cannot resist writing a testimonial to our broker, Sybil Argintar, who succeeded in selling our house when two previous brokers had failed. Our house was a special treasure, nestled high in the mountains with privacy, a gorgeous view, spacious rooms, and high end extras like a high-efficiency heating/air conditioning system and a natural-gas-fed generator. But it did lack some features that many found essential, such as a large number of bedrooms and quick access to town. Sybil succeeded where others failed by emphasizing in her promotional materials the features that made the house unique, such as the architectural beauty and the high-quality construction. She was able to attract prospective buyers who would treasure these aspects of the house. The result was an offer within 3 months. The deal closed seven weeks later. Sybil’s great skill in marketing homes reflects her background in landscape architecture and historic preservation as well as her perseverance and attention to detail. With her sunny optimistic personality, she is a delight to work with."
J & M, Sellers, 2015

"Jackie Tatelman is a go-to and no-nonsense realtor. A dream to work with, Jackie was very knowledgeable with the business of real estate and was able to sell our beautiful timber frame Black Mountain home in an incredible and unheard of 12 hour period. She was there for us throughout the process of settlement on our home and even helped us with long distance settlement on our new home in Santa Fe, NM, always available to answer any question we had. No problem was too big or too small for her to handle and she was able to get us over several hurdles along the way. We would not hesitate suggesting her as a realtor for anyone else."
Brad and Ellen Stroman

"There are some real estate agents that are really nice, but they don't really do very much in terms of getting the job done. I don't think we could have ever gotten to this point of having a contract without Jackie."
Bruce Homer-Smith

"We used Jackie to purchase a house, and I cannot recommend her more highly. She listened very well to our needs, even when they were changing as we looked at different properties. She was very patient and extremely knowledgeable. She is also a very good hearted person who wants the best for all of her clients and she has helped with some of the emotions around buying or selling a house, even after the sale was completed. She was a huge blessing to us as we worked through a major life decision. Jackie knows many people and resources in the Black Mountain area, and she should be the first agent you turn to when you have real estate or other needs in that area."
Larry Doochin

"Thanks for everything u r the diggity bomb! :) " . . . "She [Dawn] is a get 'er done kinda person!"

"Jackie is outstanding! She made the whole process of selling our property as easy and stress free as possible. She not only helped us understand how best to position our property but took time to explain her recommendations. She was very action-oriented in terms of marketing and once we had an offer, she followed through on everything very closely so we always felt we were being represented with great attention to detail. As 'out of town' sellers, this was crucial to a successful sale and a feeling of confidence that the sale was being handled correctly. Thank you Jackie! Can't wait to work with you on future opportunities."
Judith Henry

"Just wanted to give you some Kudos from my family. I am one of 6 siblings with interest in the Ottaray Court House. Every single member of my family has responded with great glee to the flyer, website and MLS listing. You have done a great job pulling it together, and all we Smith’s appreciate it! :)"

Thank you for all of your help in purchasing our first home! We are finally settling in and we love this house so much! Thank you again for all of your hard work and dedication "
Lara and Josh

"Jackie did an excellent job marketing my home. She was always quick to respond to any questions and offered assistance whenever possible to make the whole process of selling my home less stressful."
Diane Theissen

"Yes...thank you Jackie for your hard and efficient work....the surveyor called me a few minutes ago and said that it would be ready tomorrow....amazing! Thanks for calling him....You guys do Real Estate like it is supposed to be done!"
Marvin- Black Mountain June 1, 2015

"We appreciate all you do Jackie! You have been very 'on-top' of this and it is a pleasure to work with you." Judith Henry

From a local Realtor: " It was such a pleasure meeting with you too Suzanne. I enjoy working with agents who are up to speed on process and contracts. You have been a breath of fresh air to work with. I appreciate you working late Friday evening and even on a holiday."

"I had an excellent professional experience with Ms. Wilson. She is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the business of registering the property for sale through finalizing the sale. She has an excellent knowledge and use of current high-tech processes, and can find the information she needs or post the information she wants to advertise. She really knows what she is doing! In addition, the intangibles are very satisfying: she is energetic, pleasant to work with, has a good sense of humor, kept me current/up-to-date on all contacts related to my sale, was prompt in what she did. I felt that my property was in excellent hands when I gave her responsibility for the sale. It was a pleasure and joy to work with her."
David Nash

    "Jackie Tatelman burst on the scene with her enthusiasm and sparkle in her unique green eyes, ready to take on a, “hard to sale house,” or, so I was told by other big well know realty's. With strikes against me from the beginning. A Deltec (round house), in the woods-on the side of a Swannanoa Mountain, on a steep road up, and, an even steeper drive way. No problem for Jackie! With all her mastership, was able to get the job done in 49 days, with 2 offers-plus!
    The incredible photographer she uses, with slide show made me worry that it made my home look-too good! Her gentle calming voice always reeling in my hyper OCD, and even providing booties with a kind laminated note on the door, requesting people, to remove their shoes. Jackie would also-ALWAYS-without fail, return all my calls and e- mails, which made me feel as a very important client to her, no matter how busy else where she may be. Jackie never failed to give her best- over and beyond-out of her way in-everything! Even while out of state for 3 weeks, she still handled my sale as if, she were still here, and with the help of Dawn and Suzanne, (also GREAT!) filling in where needed. Dawn Wilson Realty my be small in size as a group, but bigger in heart and abilities than the rest. So much so, that I fired all the big-well known agencies-for doing nothing, in exchanged for Jackie!
    Jackie and Dawn Wilson Agency is, a full service group, committed to bringing the best quality satisfaction as humanly possible!!"
Jeannot Gamache

"Hi Dawn, we are just in awe of your wherewithal, work ethic and competency. We're so grateful to be working with you."
Glen & Deb - Sellers 2015

"Jackie was very helpful and responsive to all my inquires and questions. I had several general questions about land development costs and she went above my expectations and promptly obtained estimates from local sources. She handled all the closing arrangements and made the property buying process a snap." Cheryl Taylor.

   "Dawn Wilson is the best.  She is high energy and worked hard for and with us to get our house sold.  Dawn is a good listener and she was able to successfully guide us through the chaos of selling our house.

   Our house was a very unique property.  The house was built in 1916, and the property also included a new heated studio building.  She encouraged us to get a pre-inspection and radon test, eliminating the threat of possible problems that come with an older house and squashing the notion that there was “too much work to do”.   Potential buyers knew the true condition of the house, clearing the way for offers and an eventual sale.
   To help get the house in front of the right buyer, she targeted niche clients through advertising in non-traditional newspapers/ magazines and stressed the unique character and possibilities afforded by the studio and home combination.
   Dawn has many other wonderful qualities that we learned about through the process.  She was very helpful in helping us stage the house.  She made it a point to follow up after showings, providing valuable information about what people were saying and looking for. She gently pushed us to keep focused on our repairs and our clean-out tasks and provided encouragement throughout the process.   She was always looking for ways to help us and went far beyond our expectations.  And best of all, she was fun to work with and always maintained a positive attitude.
   Dawn Wilson is the hardest working real estate agent we have ever met and we highly recommend her."

"Due to a career as a meteorologist with NOAA, I've moved several times over the course of 33 years with that agency. I am now in my 12th home so I've had lot's of experience with realtors buying and selling homes and Jackie is the BEST! No contest. Her strengths include her outgoing positive personality, competence in her chosen field and strong work ethic. Look no further for a great agent to represent your interests." John M.

"We wouldn't think of using anyone other than Jackie for all our real estate needs. We've listed three houses with her, bought at least two. She's the best. Knows the business, inside and out. What strikes me about Jackie is her passion and her persistence. When working for you, she leaves no stone un-turned. Just what you want in a real estate agent. Can't say enough good things about her.
As her slogan goes, "Jackie Rocks." Miles Frieden

    "Thanks. You are the best!! I can't wait to start building our house; it will be at least another year but that is so much closer than it has been. You have worked so hard, and I can't tell you how much we appreciate it.
    Susan said you were good, but she did not know you are GREAT!!....We will see you then and perhaps lift a glass of "something" to celebrate."

Annette & Sandi, Swannanoa land buyers

"Jackie was so responsive to all our queries right from the very beginning. She is skilled at her work and I would recommend her without reservation." S Carlyle "Pictures and text are fantastic - way to go, little badass realtor chick!"

 "Just let Dawn do it!"

Steve, Asheville Seller

"Jackie Tatelman is the BEST Realtor IN THE WORLD. From the time we started looking for a house until the closing one month later, she remained enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable. She wanted me and my husband to be comfortable with every decision. She offered us a wealth of contacts from home inspectors to pet sitters. She made moving from Florida easy! She gave us the key to both our new house AND our new community. We LOVE Jackie. She is the REAL thing."
Sandra and Jim Schmid


"Hi Dawn,

Hope you're doing well this fine spring day.

I was doing some cleaning out of old emails this morning and ran across my email folder related to the sale of my house 12 months ago. In some ways it seems like much longer ago than that.

As I scanned thru the emails, I recalled the amazing amount of work you did last year in helping sell my home.
I'm still amazed at how much detailed stuff was required to complete the sale of the house and how you went far above and beyond what any other agents would have done to help me with the logistics of lining up repairmen, yardmen, etc........ were also the one who connected me with the current rental cottage I now enjoy.

I just wanted to once again express a huge THANK YOU for assisting with this major event in my life.

As I reflect back on the past year, and all that has occurred since I sold my home, I am ever so pleased with my decision to sell my home and move to a smaller more economically sensible housing alternative. The sale of the home was a major step in assisting me in transitioning to a more simple and practical style of life.

I am still "in love" with my rental cottage and appreciate everything about it, the size, location, costs, landlords,'s worked out almost perfectly."

Don, Black Mountain Seller
