Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
"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."

"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."

"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."
"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."
"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.

"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
"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."

"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."

"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
"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."
