MY Testimonials

Tessa and I briefly met Jackie when we lived in the Eclipse Condominium some years ago. When we decided to sell the condo, we first thought of Jackie based on her good reputation and her local knowledge and experience. What we didn’t realize at the time was how Jackie’s experience would be needed and much appreciated during the preparations, listing and selling of our condo. The condo needed some refurbishing and maintenance. Jackie identified exactly what needed to be done to make the condo marketable. Jackie paid great attention to detail and made recommendations based on prior experiences. We live in DFW and relied on Jackie to make local recommendations for services and maintenance, which were very reasonable and dependable. Due to Jackie’s suggestions and guidance, the condo sold very quickly. Jackie is a great realtor and a joy to work with.

Tessa and Derek Buchanan

Jackie Schillig is not only a phenomenal Real Estate Agent but a wonderful human being. From the moment I contacted her (months before we knew we'd know we were for sure moving to the area), she was patient to listen to what my husband and I were looking for in a new home, and was well versed in the areas in which we were looking. A few months after our initial contact, she communicated frequently and clearly with us (not an easy feat since we were home shopping from California) and was incredibly responsive to our needs and wants in a home. Late on a Sunday, the day my husband landed at DCA, Jackie picked him up and drove him to a home we were very interested in. Less than 24 hours later we put an offer on that home and she walked us through our first home purchase one step at a time, always ensuring paperwork was properly completed and giving us guidance where we needed it. My husband and I are a unique team, and upon our first interaction, Jackie clearly understood the and conveyed a confidence in all business, financial and emotional elements of purchasing a home with us. As we continued through the process our trust in Jackie grew more and more with each decision we had to make. I can't tell you how lucky we were to find Jackie as our Real Estate Agent!

Hello homeowners selling your current abode! If you have hired Jackie Schilling, you have made a wise choice! Now the market is a fickle place, and finding that buyer who will see the value of your home and make a serious offer can be a trying experience. However, if you have Jackie on your side, have patience as she will work like no other to get that right offer. I speak from experience!

Nancy Spaulding

I would like to take this as an opportunity to sincerely thank you for your time, effort, and hard work in selling my condo. Especially the market information that you shared helped me make a right decision on my transaction. I would love to work with you again in the near future for other possible transactions, Jackie. Thank you again for your hard work and additional trouble that you went through for me, as I was abroad most of the time.

Jackie Schillig is the consummate real estate professional. My husband and I had bought and sold several properties prior to working with Jackie, so we believed we were pretty knowledgeable about the process. However, Jackie explained some nuances of real estate of which we were unaware. As a result, we were better informed sellers. We followed Jackie's advice about how to stage and price our unit. The sale of our condo was almost seamless; in pretty short order, we got a contract of over 98% of list price with very favorable terms. Without a doubt, she is the best realtor we have ever worked with!

Nina Richman-Loo and Brad Loo

Jackie is hands down one of the best real estate professionals in the National Capital area. Her knowledge of the area is unparalleled, and her understanding of all of the factors that affect a transaction is truly impressive. Jackie never stops working for her clients, devoting her evenings, weekends and holidays to ensuring that no stone is left unturned. She is attentive to every need; patient through every ebb and flow and loyal even in most difficult situations. Her diplomacy in dealing with various personalities is certainly an asset that cannot be overlooked. We have been so honored and grateful to work with her and could not recommend her more to other buyers and sellers. She truly is a gem.

Marina and David Kozmycz

Jackie was a pleasure to work with. She is very professional and knowledgeable. She was very patient during our year long search for our first single family home. We can't thank Jackie enough for all that she did. Of course we could write a page or two :).

Jennifer and Bobby Moore

An amazing, reliable, personable, and professional realtor who made the seemingly daunting task of home buying incredibly simple. Always available to explain every step and answer any question. Even recommended other excellent people for the other components involved in the home buying process. I knew pretty much nothing about the home buying process and within 3 to 4 months Jackie helped me find a perfect place within my price range that exceeded all my expectations.

Chantel Joyner

Jackie was my life saver! I almost went with Kerri Schull, but after speaking with Jackie who lives at the Eclipse where my condo was selling, she convinced me that her services were far more valuable. I was initially swayed with Schull’s claims of staging the home for free and selling a recent condo in our building in one day. However, there is much to be said for having the realtor reside in the building as Jackie has for 10 years. She knows the “neighborhood” location, floor plans, property values and people first hand.

As it happened, Jackie was in the process of staging my condo when a realtor came by with her client. Jackie was so knowledgeable about the building, comparables, HOA fees, average utilities, amenities, etc. that the prospect put in an offer within 24 hours prior to the first scheduled open house. After very little back and forth, a price was agreed upon and the only remaining obstacle was getting an accurate appraisal. Jackie went to bat and with her connections and reputation in the industry, was able to get me a fair appraisal and the sale went through.

Let me add that this sale was completely administered long distance. I was living in Texas and renting out the unit prior to putting it on the market. Jackie was equipped with excellent cleaning personnel and superb handy man help. This was important in order to pass home inspection successfully. Her level of service from maintenance recommendations to quality photography, brochures and marketing are unsurpassed.

Even prior to placing my property on market for sale, Jackie was invaluable in helping me get work professionals in to fix things that went awry just prior to my renter moving out. She was able to supply me with an air conditioning specialist and a plumber that were extremely reasonable in cost and effective in solving the problems.

Jackie’s communication skills are exceptional. She is always just a text or a phone call away. She is very good at keeping you posted on all progress as it pertains to your listing. When you are entrusting someone with something as huge as selling your largest personal investment from afar, you have to feel confident they can do the job and do it well. Jackie is that person.

Rita Ludwiczak 

We just wanted to thank you for all your hard work in selling our condo. ... We especially like how you practically took over for a very ineffective buyers' agent, earning the trust of the buyers and taking what could have been a catastrophe and turning it into a smooth closing.

From our first meeting, it was clear that you know the local market exceptionally well. Whenever we were unsure of something, you were able to provide the relevant data to back up your decisions, something that we really appreciated.

We're very grateful for everything you did for us, and if we ever need a realtor in the area again, we'll be sure to look you up.

Thanks again for everything!

Diana and Matt Carew

With gusto I highly recommend, Ms. Jackie Schillig, as a licensed realtor. She is organized, enthusiastic, and terrific at walking one through the buying process. Despite the high demand for her expertise, she patiently and easily accommodated my requests. Because of her vast experience, she anticipated the next step, such as, scheduling a home inspection as soon as the offering was accepted. Once I located "my dream home" with Jackie, the whole process was completed in a month and a half. Her cheerful personality combined with her duly noted conscientious professionalism is a rarity. She made the whole real estate ordeal actually fun!!!

A very grateful buyer and home owner,

Katherine Flaherty

When we were getting ready to sell our Arlington condo, Jackie blew us away with her professionalism, dedication and expertise in both the local real estate market and the selling process. Thanks to her guidance and patience, selling our home was a pleasure, not a chore. It sold in 7 days! We're so lucky to have found Jackie.

Sarah and Joe Maiellano

I highly recommend Jackie Schillig if you are considering selling your condo at The Eclipse on Center Park Condominium. My personal experience was that Jackie met with me and my wife and fully explained what she would do if we selected her to be our sales representative. We selected her and she did all she said, and more. She arranged for a professional photographer to take pictures for a professionally prepared brochure about the property, insuring pictures were taken during optimum natural lighting in the unit. We put the unit on the market in early March, but pictures had been taken with snow on the ground. Jackie prepared an excellent poster board for display in the unit exclaiming that Spring was coming, showing photos of various views from the condominium balconies with flowers blooming and that indeed, Spring would arrive!! Jackie arranged three open houses, and during the first one, she had teenagers from the Washington DC Ballet out on the street encouraging potential buyers to look at the condo. She displayed a fresh floral arrangement in the unit for each open house, and posted displays on the walls of each room pointing out special features of the room. We had 16 groups of people for the first open house, and all together, because of her marketing efforts, more than 50 potential buyers toured the unit. Once there was a serious potential buyer, Jackie took care of every detail, even arranging for minor repair items identified during the home inspection to be accomplished by a local handy man, and obtaining approval from the buyer for a handy man to do the repairs, versus a certified repair specialist. Jackie employed an electronic "DocuSign" capability enabling both parties to electronically sign various documents versus personal signatures and mailing documents. She expertly cleared each contingency clause of the sales contract, ensuring that there would be no problems at closing the deal. Jackie was on top of every detail throughout the process. Closing went perfectly, and funds arrived at our financial institution the day after closing.

Again, I highly recommend Jackie Schillig if you are considering selling your condo at The Eclipse on Center Park Condominium. Thank you very much for all you did to enable the sale of my condo.

Russ & Elaine Marshall

Jackie: I wanted to drop you a note to thank you, once again, for representing me in the sale of my condo at the Eclipse at Center Park. Your attention to detail, professionalism, and extensive work ethic brought us a contract within two weeks of listing. You were available at nearly every hour of the day and always returned texts, emails and phone calls. You worked diligently with the buyer's agent to ensure all documents were executed. You were a great partner and friend in bringing the sale to closing.

I could not have asked for anything more. I sincerely appreciate your work and will work exclusively with you if I move back to the area. Feel free to pass along my contact information if anyone is looking for a reference.

Your friend,

Alan Jackson

Working with Jackie during the process of selling our condo was a phenomenal experience. We were amazed at how quickly the sale happened. The attention to detail and added touches she suggested added to the successful sale. We look forward to working with Jackie for the purchase of our next property.

Robert and Jennifer Moore

My wife and I recently used Jackie Schillig as the real estate professional to sell our property at the Eclipse in Crystal City. We found Jackie Schillig to be the most reliable, professional, and helpful agent ever. We have bought and sold half a dozen homes in the last quarter century and Jackie is hands down, the single best agent we have worked with.

For starters, her familiarity with the details of residential properties in the Northern Virginia area is encyclopedic. Jackie’s specialized knowledge of Crystal City, especially the Eclipse real estate transactions, allowed her to get us the best possible price – a good $15,000 over the most recent sale of a unit configured similarly to ours. Wow! In addition, because Jackie works with Weichert, a firm that applies considerable resources to publishing listings, she is able to bring more potential buyers to the unit than just about anybody else. Jackie’s style ensures that the seller understands what to expect along the way BEFORE accepting a listing. She patiently meets with each prospective client and walks through all the steps of listing and selling. Once on board, she follows up on every detail to ensure smooth sailing. We closed on time without a single glitch and received the proceeds of the sale within one business day of the settlement. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Jackie Schillig is an extremely professional, knowledgable real estate agent who provides exemplary service.

Mary Norris

Last month you did the impossible for us - our Arlington condo sold in record time, thanks to your dedication and hard work! Well, we just can't thank you enough...

You helped us find the right condo some 5 years ago when our daughter attended nursing school there in Arlington. With so many choices, you expertly assessed our priorities and led us in the right direction. I so appreciated your ability to know the DC market and guide us to a wonderful, well-situated home for our daughter.

So when it came time to sell the property, we knew we had to contact you. Throughout the entire process, you were ahead of the game at every turn: great Open Houses (bringing your own lighting to best show the place), chatting up the property to ensure a good turnout, and­ most importantly- bringing your trademark warm, professional and high-energy self to bear fruit for us in the end. We got a full-price, high-end, offer in less than a month!

So, Jackie, thank you from the bottom of my heart for handling every aspect of our sale with such warmth and professionalism. It could not have been any easier or more profitable with any other realtor- we're die-hard fans!

So promise that you'll look me up if you come to Asheville, and please know that Emilie and I wish you the very best!

Monica Tilhou

When I made the decision to sell my home, I made the right decision in terms of realtors. Jackie Schillig made me feel comfortable right from the beginning. Her personality, professionalism and real estate experience gave me the utmost confidence in her ability to market my property as if it were her own. She undeniably had my best interests at heart, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Jackie’s work ethics went above and beyond all my expectations. Her hard work, dedication and guidance proved successful as I was able to sell and close in a very short time!! Jackie ensured that every avenue was considered in how to present my property, including the finer details of the photos used in the marketing materials. Everything was completed in a timely fashion. She was completely honest and thorough in all the details throughout the process and is very solution oriented. A great quality for me to be able to rely on her good judgment to guide me every step of the way. Anyone who has the pleasure to work with Jackie will find her flexible and dependable.

Jackie spent a great deal of her time answering any questions I had, provided me with objective data regarding homes sales, listings and time on the market, comps, etc. so that I was fully prepared to understand sales in my area. Her knowledge paid off. From listing to closing in less than a month!! It couldn’t have been a more pleasant experience.

I would recommend Jackie Schillig to everyone I know. She is a true professional and I think anyone would be hard pressed to find a better realtor.

Deb Hernandez

We have utilized Jackie Schillig’s services for multiple purchases and sales throughout the last decade and every time she has been a true professional.

Jackie has always been straightforward, hard-working, and extremely knowledgeable in both buyers’ and sellers’ markets. She has also provided the best guidance in setting the best listing price to bring as many buyers as possible to get the best price as possible while providing the right target price for purchasers.

She has always been very dependable and someone we should highly recommend for both as a seller or buyer.

Year first hired: 1994 (hired more than once)

The Yi Family

I would like it to be known that Jackie Schillig, of Weichert Realtors, showed to me and my family exceptional diligence and the utmost in professional courtesy and concern when I asked her, in August of 2013, if she would help locate a place for my daughter.

My daughter recently returned to the U.S. from an overseas assignment and was diagnosed with serious cancer, which caused her to be unable to return to her overseas assignment, creating an immediate need for housing for her family, including a newborn only a few weeks old. In this crisis situation, although Ms. Schillig was on vacation out of town, she promptly responded and immediately on her return made a search of available options to suit the needs of my daughter and her family. Throughout, Ms. Schillig showed the most sincere personal concern and compassion to us.

I shall never forget her voice in this dark hour of our family life, as she reassured me that she was on this task with all she could give to it: "Jim, real estate isn't real estate, it is people."

Jackie Schillig is a realtor of extraordinary competence and integrity. Anyone who is so fortunate as to have her on their side will find that she is both good at her work, and a True Friend.

James P. Downey

Just wanted to take a minute to thank you so much for all that you did to sell my home. You were there for me every step of the way and because of your expertise I was able to avoid the pitfalls that often happen to sellers in this market. I know that I was able to sell at such a good price because you knew the market and the latest trends. Your advice was so helpful and anyone considering selling would be fortunate to have you represent them.

The best to you, and I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for an agent.

Mary Ann Aker

Jackie is a wonderful realtor who we would use again in the future and recommend to our family and friends. She conducts herself professionally, but with a personal touch. She took the time to fully understand our needs and limitations, working diligently to find us options that met our criteria. Along the way, she helped us evaluate options by offering honest assessments that were in our best interest, not simply to close on a property so she could move on. Once we located a home, Jackie used her wealth of knowledge to aid us in submitting a competitive bid, under asking price, in a heated market that was accepted right away without any counter-offer. With us every step of the way, Jackie was proactive throughout the closing process and was a valuable resource when technical matters arose. Even under intense time pressure, Jackie is someone that can be relied upon to go the extra-mile for her clients.

Aaron Benesh and Kay Soe

Jackie is incredibly professional, accessible, and effective. I couldn’t be happier with her work and results. My advice to those selling their home, take Jackie and don’t look back. She is exceptional. I was 100% satisfied with Jackie’s work and would hire her again in a heartbeat. I was amazed at how quickly Jackie was able to put our home on the market and sell it. Jackie was on top of everything and always available to answer our questions. In addition to handling a lot of the complex tasks of a home sale, Jackie did our worrying for us. She went to bat for us.

Badar Tareen

Jackie Schillig has to be one of the best and hardest-working realtors in the business! She got a contract on my home in almost record time, she provided me with information through every step of the home-selling process, and she always maintained a positive and reassuring attitude.

Jackie went above and beyond what I had expected from a realtor, and I will not hesitate to use her in future real estate transactions.

Ahmad Yusuf

As I finally settle into my new home, I fully realize that the constant advice and assistance received from Jackie Schillig has been a most essential part of this long process, from starting with finding the right house and location in March through all changes and negotiations right up to the final settlement two weeks ago and then for the move. Can't begin to think of how many times I would have probably fallen on my face without her.

Donal Elliott

Jackie took care of the entire process and was such a pleasure to work with

Nicholas Somers

Becky and I are sitting on our back deck listening to the birds, enjoying the warm spring afternoon and having a glass of wine to celebrate the sale of our home. We can’t thank you enough for your professional counsel and especially for your personal investment of time and energy to help us sell. We truly appreciate how well you looked after the property while we were away. Your attention to every detail of the listing and sale meant that we never had to worry about how things were going back in Arlington.

We have bought and sold a number of homes over the years and have dealt with many real estate people in the process, but I can honestly say that we have never been in better hands or felt more comfortable with the level of professionalism and commitment that we received from you. Thanks for everything.

Wayne and Becky Dohlman

Jackie is fantastic! She worked tirelessly to find me a new tenant in less than 30 days after my previous tenant moved out unexpectedly. Her professionalism and attention to detail to ensure I had an excellent new tenant was exemplary! I couldn't have had a better Realtor working this issue for me!!!

Nancy Spaulding

We wanted to write to thank you for all your diligent help and assistance in selling our home in December. We wanted to let you know that we very much appreciated how professional and friendly all of our dealings with you were. You took a very difficult situation in a very unfriendly banking environment with the first buyer and turned it around into a positive and rewarding experience (a consummated sale).

Your knowledge of the market and lending circles certainly aided us in getting the transaction to a quick and easy settlement. We avoided all the unpopular tasks associated with any real estate deal because you handled all of them for us. Overall, we were very pleased with our association with you and your brokerage and would certainly call on you again if and when the need arises.

Dan Smith

Jackie was a friend first then our Realtor. We knew that she would be a great agent, but didn't know just how great she really would be! In this extremely difficult market, she sold our home sooner than we expected. She worked hard to represent our interests during a difficult negotiation with the buyer. She was always there to answer our questions or concerns. She went above and beyond what other agents would do. We couldn't have been happier with Jackie as our agent! We would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!

Cassandra Choe-Juliak and Peter Juliak

My wife and I wanted a realtor who knows Arlington, who’s professional, knowledgeable as well as honest. We felt confident that Jackie Schillig possessed all those qualities and more from our first meeting. Jackie was very understanding of our family needs and she was able to sell our condo quickly and at a fair price. Whether it was answering questions during selling or purchasing or suggesting a contractor or a moving company, her knowledge, professionalism and her family-like treatment were invaluable to us. We highly recommend Jackie and the entire Weichert Realtors staff for anyone looking to sell or buy in the DC area.

Rami and Sara Aboushakra

Terrific agent! Jackie Schillig will sell your home. She goes above and beyond what great agents will do. She sold our house in 3 weeks when others couldn't in 5 months. She doesn't just talk about selling your home. Her actions speak louder than anything out there.

Bjong Wolf Yeigh

As first-time homebuyers, the only reason we were able to survive today's crazy real estate market was because we had Jackie for our Realtor. Jackie listened to all of our concerns, answered all of our questions, went to bat for us, and made us feel not only like we were in the best hands possible, but like we were her only clients.

Jackie won us (and everyone else) over with her amazing personality, and our success in finding our first dream home is owed to her.

Toure & Charisse Sam

Jackie made a complicated transaction look easy. She was able to successfully find a way to help me close a transaction that had elements that "had never been done before". Thanks to Jackie, now it HAS been done. Her experience and willingness to find a way to "do the impossible" add up to the kind of agent that any buyer or seller needs.

Phil Cogan

Jackie was honest, knowledgeable, diligent, and thorough, but most importantly, a pleasure to work with during the sale of my home.

John Kent

Jackie was great to work with on the sale of my home. She was always prompt responding to my questions, phone calls and emails. She represented both me and the buyer and worked well with each of us to make sure the sale addressed both of our needs. She was a joy to work with, and I highly recommend her in assisting others with the sale of their home.

June Marie

I would like to convey my tremendous satisfaction with Jackie Schillig and the work she did as my Realtor in my recent home purchase. From the moment we met, Jackie was wonderfully warm and kind as she helped me through the process of purchasing my first home. I had very little knowledge of what to expect, but Jackie explained everything clearly and thoroughly from the very beginning to closing. She was constantly on the lookout for my interests, and ensured that they were protected. We went to look at quite a number of homes and through it all Jackie was cheerful, patient and most importantly, Jackie made sure that I was on a route to finding the home that was perfect for me. She took time to find out just what I wanted in a home. When we were looking together she would ask whether or not a particular property would meet the needs and wants I had laid out, making sure that what I chose to purchase really did “fit me”. Once a property was decided on, Jackie became even more assertive in protecting my interests as well as guiding me every step of the way through submitting the contract to the day of closing. As a result, I now own a home that I love that was purchased at a wonderful price. Jackie is the consummate professional, extraordinarily versed in the ins and outs of real estate, all the while being charming and pleasant. She also was quite good at calming any concerns I had with the valid information and advice that proved invaluable in making the transaction as smooth as possible.

Jackie Schillig provided the best service I have ever received on any business transaction bar none. I would recommend Jackie to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent. She is quite simply the best. And I am someone difficult to impress.
