"We had a fantastic experience working with James & Associates! Gerry helped us figure out the right building, the right part of town and helped us understand what was important when buying a condo. So happy!" ~ Mo & Kitty Thomasos | 1010 Midtown, Buyer

"Jamie was fantastic. In 2010 she helped me purchase my first condo for an amazing price in the exact location I was looking to live. The process was simple and easy and her breadth of knowledge of the real estate market really made it effortless. Jamie went on to help me sell that home and buy a new one 3 years later. Every interaction I have had with Jamie has been great." ~ Nick A. | Viewpoint, Buyer & Seller

"I used Jamie when I purchased my first home (midtown condo) in Atlanta and sold my first home to move a few years later. I noticed initially with the purchase there is no one that will go to bat for you the way Jamie does--starting right with the initial funding. The condo building had reneged on how the funds could be held (at meeting stating only a cashier's check at that time would be taken) and she argued with them stating they initially said a personal check was acceptable (what we had come with). Needless to say, they took my personal check. When I went to sell my condo she had it dressed and photographed beautifully, I believe it sold within 2 weeks. The process was easier than I ever thought. I wished I had a real estate agent like her when I moved to Portland. While she is strong in getting your individual needs met, she is never pushy and always has your best interests in mind. Would highly recommend!" ~ Amber M. | Viewpoint, Buyer & Seller

"Jamie has helped me buy two homes and sell one. She's very knowledgeable about Atlanta real estate, especially when it comes to high-rises. I definitely plan to work with her again in the future."  ~Hunter P. | Viewpoint, Buyer & Seller

"Jamie knows her market and helped me get a great price on an incomparable unit in Midtown Atlanta. As a seller's agent, Jamie was responsive and incredibly helpful in getting more than I wanted when selling my unit. If I ever decide to move again, I will definitely use Jamie to help me find a new  place and to sell my current unit." ~ John C. | Peachtree Lofts, Buyer & Seller

"Jamie is a fabulous agent. Her knowledge of Atlanta condos in tremendous - she knows all of the buildings in Midtown and is familiar with not only the amenities and the style of the units but also whether or not they are FHA eligible. Jamie is so on top of what is available on the market that she took my husband and I to see units only hours after they hit the MLS. She Is always available when you need her - whether by text, phone or email. This was our first home purchase and Jamie was very thorough in answering all of our new homeowner questions and patiently walk us through the process. I would recommend her to anyone who is buying the first home or their fifth." ~ Melissa M. | Peachtree Lofts, Buyer

"Jamie helped us to find the condo we wanted. It wanted. She showed us pretty much all the units which fitted our budget and requirements. She was great. I referred a friend to her after we bought our unit." ~ Megan M. | Midtown, Buyer & Seller

"Jamie was a professional in every aspect. We would refer to anyone who wants to buy or sell a condo in Midtown Atlanta. She is extremely knowledgeable of the area and the different buildings. Thanks to her we were able to sell our unit within 90 days."
 ~ Eric L. | The Reynolds, Seller

"Jamie has helped me with two Real Estate transaction and save me both time and thousands of dollars. Nobody knows the market in Midtown better than Jamie. First, Jamie found me an amazing deal in a building that I never thought I could afford to live in. Then she helped me negotiate that the leftover funds after the seller paid for my financing were applied to the condo dues so I have no dues at all for the first year! I would have just lost that money if she had not helped me. Jamie also helped me short sell a second Condo I was renting. The building had deteriorated and it was difficult for me to rent the unit any longer, but I was upside down on my Mortgage. She made sure I worked with her Associates that Specialize in Short Sales were involved and the transaction went through very smoothly."  ~ David M. | Windsor over Peachtree, Seller

Buckhead

"Gerry is the most knowledgeable, efficient, helpful realtor I have ever met, and I have closed on 7 previous homes. He exceeded my “realtor” expectations but in addition he stands out as a kind and considerate person. From the beginning to the end, he took the initiative and made the process flow smoothly, without ever appearing to be pushy or self-serving. Even my mortgage broker gave him compliments because whatever he needed, Gerry followed up and got it to him a quickly. There was less on my plate because Gerry was on top of everything. After a very short time, I felt confident that nothing was going to fall through the cracks or be delayed and I was correct; there were no surprises. Even after the closing, Gerry checked back to make sure that everything was OK; he is the best!" ~Lennett R. | Buckhead Grand Buyer

"Great experience with Gerry! He is patient, never pushy, and always looks out for the best interest of his client - even if it will mean that he doesn't profit the most. There were several challenging obstacles to closing the transaction and Gerry helped navigate each one. He was able to adjust his schedule on several occasions to meet mine, and he repeatedly demonstrated his expertise related to real estate regulations and purchase inspection requirements." ~ Jeremy M. | Grandview Buyer & Seller

"My purchase was pretty straight forward. No negotiation. I knew what I wanted, and Jamie made it happen. It was also a short sale, so having Jamie's expertise and knowledge on the subject made it extremely easy for me. She put things into layman's terms and just pointed me in the direction I needed to go. I got lucky that there were no problems encountered or hassles with the sellers, banks, inspections etc. While it was unique purchase, it could have been a lot more stressful if I didn't have Jamie to guide the way." ~ Scott P. | Realm, Buyer

“Jamie is well connected in the real estate industry and always had the most recent updates on any buildings or units she showed us as buyers. She knew what we wanted and when she saw a good match, she would contact us immediately which is the reason why we were able to land our dream condo unit.  Her prompt response to upcoming listings and her expertise gave us an edge over other buyers looking at the same unit. She also connected us with a great attorney firm and mortgage consultant who made the deal solid. You can’t go wrong with Jamie on the deal.” ~ Tonya W. | Realm, Buyer & Seller

"In selecting your next Realtor, I would highly recommend Jamie. As a first time home buyer and new to the area, Jamie spent time educating me on the Atlanta real estate market and truly listed to what I was looking for. From start to finish she made the entire home buying process an ease. In addition, Jamie is very resourceful and well connected in the Atlanta community. Post close, she has connected me with the best contractors in town and continues to make herself available. Simply put, she is an excellent Realtor."  ~Al K. | Realm, Buyer

"Jamie will not take shortcuts and will manage every step for her clients. She goes above and beyond any agent I've ever worked with. Not only did she represent me when we sold the condo but she found the property and represented us with the purchase. In four years we doubled our money. Trust her." ~ Mike D. | Buckhead Grand, Buyer & Seller

"Jamie was a pleasure to deal with. She was very professional and was extremely helpful in managing through the sales process that became quite complex. Her knowledge of the local market was superior to any other realtor that I engaged." ~ Bradley H. | Brookwood Place, Buyer

"Jamie really knew the high rise market. As a couple that had no experience with this kind of downsizing, she was very valuable. She guided us through the process of buying including HOA and building amenities." ~ Jackie H. | 2828 Peachtree, Buyer

"Jamie took the bull by the horns and led the entire process from beginning to end (even after closing). She surpassed my expectation level and her availability and service was far above and beyond any experience I've had with a realtor. I told her to get ready to buy my next home in a few years and I look forward to working with her again very soon!" 
~ Jon S. | Terminus, Buyer

"Our experience selling our condo through Jamie & Associates was stellar. She responded immediately to any questions that we had and went above and beyond to help us work through a potentially difficult deal. Her recommendations for staging were spot on, and her photographer and marketing campaign reached the right people. We would highly recommend Jamie for anyone wanting to sell condo real estate in Atlanta!" ~ Jamie F. | The Brookwood, Seller

"In the spring of 2015, I worked with Gerry Barger and he helped me buy a condo. This was my first experience with buying and Gerry was beyond helpful. It was very obvious how experienced he was and he brought so many thoughts and ideas to my attention that I would have never thought about myself. I would 100% recommend him to anyone and everyone. Gerry was very attentive throughout the entire process and even months after I was living in my condo he emailed me to check in and make sure things were going well."
 ~ Elizabeth P. | Buckhead Village Lofts, Buyer

Atlantic Station

"Amazing!!! Top Notch. Used them for both of my home purchases and sale. Very personalized Service and they pretty much become part of your extended family. Very much looking for more closings together." ~ Dan P. | The Atlantic, Buyer and Seller

"Jamie & Associates provides incredible service and expertise. With an excellent knowledge of the midtown area Jamie supported me in every step of the buying process for a condo from negotiating on price to picking out the color of the carpet. Additionally, she was involved in helping me finding and evaluating the lender I used and was able to point out when they were offering terms that were not favorable to me." ~ Chris C. | The Atlantic, Buyer

"I have bought two places and sold one with Jamie. She has given great advice on a consistent basis whether it is pricing my unit to sell or purchasing a new home. She is easy to reach and is willing to help at a moment's notice. I trust Jamie and appreciate all of her help over the years!" ~ David D. | Art Foundry, Buyer & Seller

"When I began to consider putting my unit on the market last year, I researched several agents and made my calls to get an assessment of the market. You were the first to return my call. When we met at the condo I was caught off guard by your unassuming, factual manner. You listened, gave suggestions, and gave me a price range to sell, advised when to sell and how long it would take. So much more help than I anticipated. Not the 'sales spill' I expected. My situation was demanding. I had no idea what an asset you would become. All your advice worked. I balked at some, interfered when I shouldn't have, but followed your guide...THANK GOD. You are a brilliant agent, strong and determined, standing up for your client and standing your ground. Your home marketing was excellent and resulted in multiple offers. Total time from meeting you to closing was less than 2 months. That's amazing!" ~Linda H. | Art Foundry, Seller

"Jamie is terrific! She delivers on everything she promises and more. She took our listing on short notice, pulled everything together and had it posted in no time. Within days she had showings and the property sold very quickly at near the asking price. I would highly recommend her." 
~ Jerry M. | Twelve Atlantic Station, Seller

“I met Jamie via Highrises.com, where her contact info was posted. After a short conversation about a potential property in which I was interested, she made a conscious effort to show me the property in a timely manner. Thereafter, I decided to buy and she worked with the seller in closing the deal.  I've heard many stories of how the home buying experience may be stressful, but this was the complete opposite. It was a smooth process by far and I recommend Jamie to anyone interested in buying property in the metro Atlanta area. I greatly appreciated her diligence and hard work." ~ Charles K. | Twelve Atlantic Station, Buyer

"Jamie knows the finer points of ensuring a smooth experience whether a buyer or seller. I would know as I've both bought and sold with Jamie and plan to do so in the future once again (I tend to move a lot in the local area). She made it a focus to understand my goals and offers insight on what advice and properties to give/show. I'm much more confident when handling real estate now. At first I could love a niche property but now I can see important factors like ability to resell overcome the emotional feeling you get with a property. Housing is not an area to commit to unless all the factors are right. Jamie has helped me with this."  ~Travis H. | Twelve Atlantic Station, Buyer & Seller

"Jamie has completed four transactions with me over the past couple of years. Her hard work, persistence, and integrity stands out as an industry professional. Jamie’s understanding of the Atlanta condo market far exceeds any other agent I’ve worked with and have referred her to several friends and colleagues. When you sell your property with Jamie & Associates, you can expect national exposure and excellent marketing." 
~ Pat G. | Twelve Atlantic Station, Seller & Investor

"Jamie and her team has done a tremendous job in helping me locate what I believe is the best 1 bed condo in the city at the right price. I couldn't have been more fortunate than to have her as an agent. She delivers a dream home for me and finance and the process was honestly quick and easy.~Stefano S. | Twelve Atlantic Station, Buyer

Virginia Highlands

"Moving to Atlanta we had friends that recommended two sales agents, and neither worked out. We found Gerry Barger by accident and we were blown away at his local knowledge of the area and every building we viewed or inquired about. His communication was outstanding and he was extremely organized, which really impressed both of us and made the entire searching and buying process easier & enjoyable. Gerry will be our first call when we decide to purchase another property in Midtown." ~ Steve H. |Greenwood Lofts, Buyer

Old Fourth Ward

“I worked with Jamie to buy my condo - she listened to what I told her I was looking for and quickly sent me a lot of options. When we went together to look at the places I had selected, she encouraged me to add one more spot that she had a good feeling about. After checking out numerous condos and thinking I had settled on "the one", I agreed to visit the unit she had recommended. As soon as I walked in, I knew that this was actually the condo that fit my description of what I was looking for in a home. Jamie knows what she is doing!”

Decatur

"We could not have a better realtor. Gerry Barger showed us high professional standards while assisting us in our new home search in Atlanta. He is knowledgeable and skilled. I highly recommend his services." 
~ Bruno & Ana S. | Linden Place Townhomes, Buyer

Candler Park

“It was fine; it was a tough process in general selling a property in a state with which you no longer live. All communication seemed very urgent (lots of emails and calls) and unfortunately being in a different time zone and working a full time job at times it was a nuisance. There were a lot of showings scheduled to show my property and at the end of the day we were able to get it sold quickly and at the best price possible! I appreciate all the effort put into selling the unit and am happy with the end result.”~ Whitney F. | La France Lofts Seller

Vinings

"Our agent, Gerry Barger, was lovely to work with. It took a while for us to find a home due to the hot market but Gerry patiently worked with us while we tried. He answered many questions I had swiftly and with no problem. He was very observant about what we wanted and needed and made great suggestions about what steps we should take. Ultimately, he wound up waiting and watching for one specific building and moved the moment he saw there was an opening. As a result, we got our dream home!" ~ Jeffrey G. | Vinings Main Buyer

Investors


“Jamie knows the condo market better than any other agent I know. She was on top of my deal from day one and helped to make it an easy transaction. I will definitely recommend her to others.”~ Bill H. | Seller & Multi-property Investor

"Jamie and her team have helped me sell several properties in the Atlanta area. She is responsive and diligent which is are some qualities a lot of agents seem to lack. She knows every building in the city like the back of her hand, and her detailed knowledge of the different neighborhoods in the city has proven to be a valuable asset in helping me sell some of my homes. The first time I met her was at a condo in downtown ATL. She had multiple offers for me within a couple of hours of me leaving the building. If you’re looking to buy and sell in the Atlanta area, Jamie should be the first and last broker you call. I highly recommend her to anyone I know looking to buy or sell and will continue to do so in the future."  ~Allan S. |Seller & Multi-property Investor
