"I feel so fortunate to have had Jason as my real estate agent! He always kept me informed of any activity, not only with my house, but the market it was in. I received updates from him every week without having to ask. The updates contained only the pertinent information involved in selling my house. If I could select all top attributes, not just three, I would, as Jason excels in all aspects of being a professional agent. Highly recommended! (This recommendation is also on LinkedIn.com)"
-- Doyle & Sheila B.
"Jason was extremely helpful when my wife and I needed to move into a larger place. He was able to find exactly what we were looking for and was able to answer all of the odd questions I had. He was thoroughly knowledgeable about every step of the process and made sure nothing slipped through the cracks. He also helped us sell our house quickly and profitably. He is a pro at getting paperwork done quickly and efficiently. It was refreshing to find someone so professional and hard working. I recommend Jason to everyone I know. (This recommendation is also on LinkedIn.com)"
-- Josh & Kate F.
"I want to thank you for the superb job you did in handling the marketing and closing of my condo in Knoxville. I appreciated so much the way you supported me during the whole experience from the beginning by providing extensive research of the market in Knoxville to the end which required hand holding during all the repairs necessitated by the inspection. You were always available and responded to all my requests in a timely and tolerant manner. It seemed to me that you were on top of the whole process and willingly gave of your time and attention to the smallest of details, while keeping my best interests at the forefront. I would recommend your services to anyone who wants an understanding, smart and unruffable agent to guide them through the often frustrating real estate venture. Again, my sincere thanks to you, Jason, for a job well done."
-- Corinne B.
"Jason represents a great combination of skill, integrity and commitment that is so hard to find today. He was available by phone and e-mail at any time I needed him, willing to do whatever it took to make sure my needs were met. I highly encourage you to contact him if you have any real estate needs.

-- Chris & Dawn W.
"I couldn’t be happier with my home selling experience. The offer came within 72 hours of being on the market. My situation was unique as it was conducted with me out of state, often out of the country. Additionally, the home was involved in an estate settlement, making the paperwork more cumbersome. Jason arranged for everything including staging, inspections, and repairs. He even tracked down a loose end on the estate settlement that involved locating a missing heir. Jason worked tirelessly to make closing go smoothly. He gave a million dollar effort on an entry level price point home. I cannot recommend him enough to friends and family.

"I have recently had a very rewarding business relationship with Jason Rankin, Realtor, and was so impressed with his professionalism, sincere customer orientation, strong ethics and commitment, that I informed Jason I was going to write a recommendation on his behalf. Anyone who knows me knows that I take my reputation very seriously and do not provide personal or professional recommendations unless I would stake my reputation on that recommendation. Over the last several months, I have been house-hunting in East Tennessee. Jason Rankin was recommended by a friend as a very reliable resource to assist me in this process. Having gone through the house-hunting/relocation process several times in the past, I was not particularly looking forward to this exercise. My previous experiences with Real Estate Agents were less than favorable; in most instances, I found them trying to work both sides of the “deal” (which, by law, they are not suppose to do unless previously disclosed to you). Jason changed my perception. When you are Jason Rankin’s client, you have his full attention during the time you are with him. He did not become “distracted” by calls coming into his cell phone, and always put me, the customer, first during our time together. As we neared closing (and anyone who has gone through this process knows that nothing goes as planned), he worked diligently, on my behalf, coordinating the necessary activities with all partners to get a date and time for closing locked in, and also worked to remove the many barriers that seem to pop up at the last minute. This allowed me to stay calm and removed from most of the minutia of the situation. Bottom line, this is an individual you want on your side! It is my distinct privilege to provide this professional recommendation. I would be happy to provide further input to anyone who would like to discuss with me personally. (This recommendation is also on LinkedIn.com)"
-- Bonita G.
"Jason listed my $450,000 home for sale with a ninety day window of opportunity. He was able to get my home under contract and closed within this 90 day period which was nothing but short of amazing in this tough residential market of 2009. Jason has remarkable marketing skills which probably helped me average almost a showing ever other day. I would not hesitate to recommend Jason if I have a residential requirement. (This recommendation is also on LinkedIn.com)"
-- John S.
"My wife and I are more than happy to recommend Jason Rankin as a Realtor. His marketing skills sold our home during a tough market and made the experience as easy as possible. He made excellent suggestions how to make our house more desirable to potential buyers and was always available when we had a question. We were most impressed by his honesty, integrity and commitment to put his customers first."
-- Don & Audrey E.
"Jason was what we consider a Godsend. He is a true professional and we will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone we know that needs a Realtor. We experienced a difficult situation with our sale while out of town, and Jason went the extra mile (miles) to make sure everything went smoothly. We have moved many times, and have been exposed to many Realtors, but Jason is heads and tails the most helpful of any we have worked with. We score him a 10!"
-- Bill & Eileen P.
"I can’t say enough wonderful things about Jason Rankin! From the first time I viewed what is now my new condo, he bent over backwards to ensure that I had answers to all of my questions. Further, I loved that he wasn't pushy or high pressure. When it was discovered that the condo needed a few repairs, Jason could not have been more helpful in gathering estimates to help me make an informed decision. He was just a pleasure to work with! I truly feel that he is extremely competent, honest, knowledgeable, patient, and committed to his profession and to ensuring that both buyers and sellers are happy. I couldn't have asked for anyone better! When it comes time to move, I will definitely be giving him a call! I would highly recommend him to any family or friends needing a realtor (and already have and I just closed five days ago!). (This recommendation is also on LinkedIn.com)"
-- Jennifer H.
"We just loved Jason, not just as a professional Realtor, but a truly wonderful person! Jason sold our home and helped us to purchase a new home. Jason made several trips to our new home and helped us to make a right decision. With closing on both homes, Jason eased our minds through this stressful time. Jason went above and beyond his responsibilities as a Realtor in helping us. We recommend Jason to all our family and friends."
-- Terrie & Joe B.
"I would highly recommend Jason as a Real Estate Agent! It was a pleasure working with him during our house search. He was very patient, professional, detailed, funny, and responsive to any questions that we had. He would always try and have a flexible schedule for availability at his Client’s convenience. We’ll miss his smiling face, as we not only had an agent but a friend over the last several months. (This recommendation is also on LinkedIn.com)"
-- Heather M.
"Jason started as our Realtor, but has also become our friend. He is just an all around great guy! He was always professional but caring and good-humored. He made every step feel easy. I would certainly recommend him over anyone in real estate. You can’t get any better!"
-- Nate & Kate T.
"Jason really went above and beyond what I have experienced from past Realtors. He always did what he said he was going to do. He also kept in constant communication, and was helpful throughout the entire process from Listing to Closing. I would recommend him to anyone wanting excellent service."
-- Tom D.
"Jason really went above and beyond in my opinion. He was ready, willing and able to show me as many properties as it took to find the right one in the short time-frame I had. He knew the Indy area well and helped me find a really good deal on a wonderful home. I will recommended him to everyone I know who needs a great Realtor. (This recommendation is also on LinkedIn.com)"
-- Suzanna C.
"Jason Rankin has been the consummate real estate agent. He pays close attention to detail, photographs brilliantly, and used the King's English to describe every aspect of my home. He convinced me, and quite sincerely, that my satisfaction with his work far superseded his desire for personal gain. He was extremely generous with his time, and always made me feel that in that moment, no one was more important than me. You will like his style and love his service. I highly recommend him for your consideration. (This recommendation is also on LinkedIn.com)"
-- Susan P.
"Roy and I had a short timeframe to find a home. Jason made himself available when we needed him to and found us a home just in time. We would recommend Jason to anyone looking for a Realtor who cares about his Client’s needs. (This recommendation is also on LinkedIn.com)"
-- Cori & Roy
"Jason was receptive and genuinely interested in locating the right property for us, and was able to procure buyers in a difficult real estate market. When it appeared the buyers were being unreasonable, Jason was very supportive and receptive to our saying 'no', regardless of the time and energy he invested in the deal. Moreover, he remained confident in us as serious buyers, and as sellers; he invested a lot of time in emailing and faxing information regarding these real estate transactions. We did not feel any pressure to buy and or sell, and we were encouraged by this patience."
-- Rick S.
"I would be very honored to recommend Jason as a Realtor to any of my friends. He is very compassionate and deals with every client as though they are the most important client he has. He is very honest and down to earth. He has your best interests in mind and does not push you into buying a house that won't fit your needs."
-- Maudena A.
"Jason helped us find a nice condo in a nice area at a good price. He met us at the condo on three different occasions and even attended the inspection. He helped us with the negotiations and made the closing run smoothly. Jason is friendly and dependable. He is not pushy and he knows his stuff. We would recommend Jason to anyone who would like to buy or sell property."
-- Pam R. & Teresa L.
"I would recommend Jason to anyone who is serious about buying or selling a house. Jason loves his job and it shows. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. Despite the current market he was always on top of his game. If you want someone who will produce results, and answer all your questions with confidence, Jason is the right agent for the job. There is no doubt I will be calling on him again in the future. (This recommendation is also on LinkedIn.com)"
