"I've been a tenant of Jake's for 2 years now and he is absolutely amazing!

Anytime I called with a concern he was on top of it quickly & always had a solution. Definitely would recommend him to all my friends!!"

Natasha Marsh

From start to finish, Jake was there with us every step of the way.

He truly went above and beyond to make sure we had the most stress-free process possible. He coordinated over 40 showings for our home and we were under contract with an offer over list price within 4 days of listing. My husband and I both highly recommend that you let Jake sell your home or help you find your next one. You won't be sorry!

"It was a wonderful experience dealing with Jake and his team.

We had some trying situations popup but Jake is very calming and direct in what his approach is going to be for our plan. Some information he gave me in the beginning came exactly like he said. Although I doubted him originally I will not have any doubt with Jake and his process. We're moving into a nice home starting tomorrow and I'm happy for what Jake has helped us get accomplished here. Very good job by the VPR team and Jake Blickenstaff!"

"Jake is the bomb dot com!

! He's everything you'd want in a realtor. We were first-time buyers and Jake answered every single question, offered great guidance, responded quickly, was flexible, and went above and beyond every step of the way. He's got great connections in the community and was able to setup with ease any appointments, inspections, or quotes with third parties. A fierce advocate for his clients! Additionally, he's a wonderful and incredible person. Truly enjoyed working with Jake and cannot recommend him enough!"

"My experience working with Jake Blickenstaff as my real estate agent was OUTSTANDING!

! His professionalism was demonstrated repeatedly during some extremely challenging moments during the sale of a probate home where I was the Executor. His communication was amazingly consistent and frequent, as he kept me updated with the status of repair work, negotiations with potential buyers, and closing requirements. Jake exhibited such patience and calm, as we lost one potential sale literally a few days before closing. His positive attitude and energy was infectious, and he served as a shield for me while dealing with a very difficult buyer’s real estate agent. It was a delight working with Jake and I would recommend him to any friends/family looking for a quality real estate agent. Jake … THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU … you are truly a gem!!"

"I am a licensed agent with no commercial experience so when the time came to sell a commercial property I inherited, I knew it was best to have someone else from Virtual Properties Realty handle it.

I called Jamie Mertz and she recommended I contact Jake Bickerstaff, who is very familiar with the Athens market. I want to share my experience working with him from afar and the pleasure I had meeting him at closing in Athens. I now live in Washington State but am still licensed in Georgia. Due to those limitations, I realized it was best to have a local agent handle everything. After decades of renting to many wonderful tenants, we finally made the decision to sell the property. This is where my coworker Jake came into play. Due to our history with the building, we wanted someone who recognized and appreciated how special it was to us. Jake immediately jumped right in and started fielding offers. His knowledge of the commercial business in Athens was paramount and on full display. He handled the multiple offers beautifully and I was able to focus on other commitments that were challenging in my own life. I was blessed to have Jake handle everything professionally and swiftly. His knowledge of the commercial community in Athens was invaluable. I highly recommend Jake due to his work ethic and knowledge."

Patti Fox - Commercial Property Owner

From the beginning of consulting with Jake to listing my house to showings.

..From showings to offers...Acceptance of offer to Closing Day...Jake did not miss a beat!! If he said he'd call, he called. Jake kept me well informed, educated me about the market, the process of buying & selling... When Jake needed to send information; I would get it as promised. Being a first time 'seller'; I had several questions that I thought may be silly to ask...However; Jake never, ever failed to answer them. He was on point from day one. Never disappointed me not once. He takes a straight up approach & reminded me that I was in control. Having done business for many years in various sectors; I've never met anyone like Jake. He's a man of his word. He was honest with me at all times & with the utmost respect I've ever experienced with any business relationship! That's rare these days!! I recommend anyone who's looking for a person with integrity, high morale, highly professional and will get the job done in your real estate endeavors to talk to Jake first! He will not disappoint!!! Thank you Mr. Jake Blickenstaff; Sir!! I will most definitely call upon you again... Anyone else simply cannot fill your shoes!
