Jamie Barrere was an absolute joy to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Houston market, neighborhoods and school districts which were of importance to my husband and I. Jamie and her firm made the buying process stress free and memorable which was a breath of fresh air. Thanks to Jamie my husband and I found our dream home and we are truly grateful!



Jamie is a wonderful realtor. She did an excellent job. I would recommend and use her again . Sincerely, Linda Ledbetter



Mrs Barrere is an outstanding Real Estate agent. She assisted my husband and I through two sales, that would not have happened if it had not been for her skills and abilities. We would use her again.



Jamie was absolutely wonderful to work with in every step of our home buying process. It was our first home, and we had a lot of uncertainty and questions, but Jamie was incredibly helpful and prompt in answering all of our questions and facilitating every step of the process.



Best experience I have ever had with a realtor. Jamie was extremely responsive and relentlessly pursued finding exactly what I needed and once found, worked tirelessly to finalize a deal.



To Sellers Considering Jamie Barrere, Heritage Texas Recently it became necessary to sell our family home in Houston for a new job opportunity. Part of the new job offer provided relocation assistance which included a real estate agent that specializes in relocations. After interviewing other agents suggested by the relocation company, we chose Jamie…and we are so glad we did! Prior to working with Jamie, our home had been on the market for almost 300 days. We had just about given up hope; however, with the new job offer, selling our home became a must! We needed a partner to get the word out about our wonderful home. Jamie impressed us with her knowledge of the area and her attention to detail. She spent time getting to know us and understanding what was important to us. A few of the reasons we enjoyed working with Jamie: - She proactively scheduled open houses and followed up with those that attended as well as gathered feedback to share with us - Jamie also followed up on private showings to understand the potential buyer’s likes and dislikes - Her attention to detail when prepping our house for the professional photographs was very helpful; she walked thru the house with us and made suggestions that really paid off - The professional photographs were wonderful – they really do make a difference; the combination of Jamie and the photographer focusing on details to make the pictures perfect was amazing - High-quality color brochures for potential buyers to take with them were eye-catching, informative, and made a lasting impression - Her availability throughout the process was excellent as she had to navigate both of our hectic work schedules across two different time zones - She worked well with the buyer’s agent and they both moved the process along as quickly as possible - We are sure Jamie did a ton of work behind the scenes, such as email blasts to her contacts, that certainly helped to market our home Jamie was able to accomplish a sale within 30 days of taking over the listing. After so little interest in our home for such a long time, this is such a relief! We are so happy we chose Jamie to sell our Houston home. Sincerely, Colleen and Jerry Fahling
