Jeannette Spencer consistently won Top Producer awards her real estate work as a multi-million dollar producer.  And also in her previous occupation in the computer industry.  Why is this important to you?  The consistant awards and in both industries; a multi-million dollar producer demonstrates consistent work achievements and inner drive.

Having grown up in a military family, as a child, we moved 29 times in 25 years.  As an adult, my corporate consulting / sales job had me living out of a suitcase for about 10 years.  So I know what it is like both as a child and as an adult to move!

Jeannette sells investment properties from commercial to residential.  She has been featured in UNIQUE HOMES magazine which is a national magazine specialzing in the World of Luxury Real Estate.  Jeannette Spencer has been featured in Better Homes for “Best of the Coast!” She enjoys working with first time home buyers  in finding their new Pensacola or Gulf Breeze home.

Jeannette provides knowledge, honesty & experience to her clients.  There is more involved in just finding property or selling property.  There is the knowledge of putting all the right team players together to make a transaction run smoothly for either buyer or seller.  Having the wrong team players could create havoc or could cause a transaction to fall through at the last minute.

With numerous project management experience, Jeannette uses this same approach with every transaction – to make sure everything is done on a timely manner with every company involved having their tasks complete & to the closing agency!  Everything should seem seamless to you.

Due to her Business Administration Degree with a minor in computer science from William & Mary, Jeannette understands business investments and work well in finding commercial properties for her clients.  Jeannette has provided transaction services on 1031 tax exchange and have many repeat clients.  

Jeannette practices everyday & believes in ethics.  She treats her clients as she would like to be treated.  Her approach is to look at everything from both sides!

Other realtors may “pay” someone else to develop their website, but that does not give them the full understanding of search engines and how to best utilize that tool, as well as, technology for this business! Jeannette has control of her website and continually works on her search engines to give her properties exposure!  The past 90 days, my website had 99,745 hits.  Not all those hits are looking for homes, but it demonstrates that it gets thousands of visits!

And if for any reason your needs requires more attention; I work with Cindy Spence as my partner with buyers looking to relocate.


y Use a REALTOR?All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS are properly called REALTORS. They proudly display the REALTOR “” logo on the business card or other marketing and sales literature. REALTORS are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reports that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR again.

Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $100,000. If you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be foolish to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of a REALTOR.  Don’t pick a realtor because you like their hair color.  Pick someone with a professional business background who understands that this is a business deal and the biggest investment of your family.

But if you’re still not convinced of the value of a REALTOR, here are a dozen more reasons to use one:

1. As your REALTOR I can help you determine your buying power — that is, your financial reserves plus your borrowing capacity. If you give a REALTOR some basic information about your available savings, income and current debt, he or she can refer you to lenders best qualified to help you. Most lenders — banks and mortgage companies — offer limited choices.

2. As your REALTOR I have many resources to assist you in your home search. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised in the market, and it will take some investigation by your agent to find all available properties.

3. As your REALTOR I can assist you in the selection process by providing objective information about each property. Agents who are REALTORS have access to a variety of informational resources. REALTORS can provide local community information on utilities, zoning. schools, etc. There are two things you’ll want to know. First, will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have resale value when I am ready to sell?

4. As your REALTOR I can help you negotiate. There are myriad negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing, terms, date of possession and often the inclusion or exclusion of repairs and furnishings or equipment. The purchase agreement should provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. Your agent can advise you as to which investigations and inspections are recommended or required.

5. As your REALTOR I can provide due diligence during the evaluation of the property. Depending on the area and property, this could include inspections for termites, dry rot, asbestos, faulty structure, roof condition, septic tank and well tests, just to name a few. Your REALTOR can assist you in finding qualified responsible professionals to do most of these investigations and provide you with written reports. You will also want to see a preliminary report on the title of the property. Title indicates ownership of property and can be mired in confusing status of past owners or rights of access. The title to most properties will have some limitations; for example, easements (access rights) for utilities. Your REALTOR, title company or attorney can help you resolve issues that might cause problems at a later date.

6. As your REALTOR I can help you in understanding different financing options and in identifying qualified lenders.

7. As your REALTOR I can guide you through the closing process and make sure everything flows together smoothly.

8. When selling your home, as your REALTOR I can give you up-to-date information on what is happening in the marketplace and the price, financing, terms and condition of competing properties. These are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly and with minimum hassle.

9. As your REALTOR markets your property to other real estate agents and the public. Often, your REALTOR can recommend repairs or cosmetic work that will significantly enhance the salability of your property. Your REALTOR markets your property to other real estate agents and the public. In many markets across the country, over 50% of real estate sales are cooperative sales; that is, a real estate agent other than yours brings in the buyer. Your REALTOR acts as the marketing coordinator, disbursing information about your property to other real estate agents through a Multiple Listing Service or other cooperative marketing networks, open houses for agents, etc. The REALTOR Code of Ethics requires REALTORS to utilize these cooperative relationships when they benefit their clients.

10. As your REALTOR will know when, where and how to advertise your property. There is a misconception that advertising sells real estate. The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS studies show that 82% of real estate sales are the result of agent contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, family and personal contacts. When a property is marketed with the help of your REALTOR, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Your REALTOR will generally prescreen and accompany qualified prospects through your property.

11. As your REALTOR can help you objectively evaluate every buyer’s proposal without compromising your marketing position. This initial agreement is only the beginning of a process of appraisals, inspections and financing — a lot of possible pitfalls. Your REALTOR can help you write a legally binding, win-win agreement that will be more likely to make it through the process.

12. As your REALTOR can help close the sale of your home. Between the initial sales agreement and closing (or settlement), questions may arise. For example, unexpected repairs are required to obtain financing or a cloud in the title is discovered. The required paperwork alone is overwhelming for most sellers. Your REALTOR is the best person to objectively help you resolve these issues and move the transaction to closing (or settlement)

Telecommunications Mgr for a Health System ( I won’t mention who to not make any derogatory comments which is not nice.:   (I did this as a “retirement” job when I got married so I would not have to travel.  The system installed was not a mirrored system which meant that anytime software was installed, the system had to go down.  This is horrible in a hospital environement where you have Code 3’s.  If they had bought the right system, this would not be an issue.  This was one of many technical issues, but the main issue was that the politics were unbearable.  For me personally, it was many factors of this nature.  I did not care for how I was to treat my employees; the pay was the lowest I had & for the stress??.  And for the first time in many years, I had a boss would put his name on my work; so yes, I walked out after 5-6 years.)
