    NOBODY BUT NOBODY KNOWS GAINESVILLE BETTER THAN JEAN CHALMERS

    As its former Mayor, I have lived in Gainesville for decades as a student, a university researcher, a social service administrator, a hospital trustee and a city commissioner and, for the past 28 years in the best job I have ever had, a Realtor.

    In helping Buyers, I have a deep understanding of the lay of the land, the credentials of builders, and property values and I am tireless in helping my customers find the home that will truly make them happy. What makes me most effective is the high-energy I am able to put into this enjoyable life of service and the thrill I get out of helping people. I help you evaluate mortgage proposals, qualifications of home inspectors, appraiser and surveyors. My social work background has taught me how to truly listen to my customers and understand what they really want.

    In working with Sellers I bring years of experience and a deep knowledge of the market to help determine the best price for a home in these challenging times. I give sensible advice and provide good service people to help prepare homes for the market. I professionally stage homes for maximum impact and use a professional photographer to prepare effective visuals for print, Internet and TV. I represent many University departments and industry in helping to recruit professional employees, which means I usually have a ready supply of buyers.

    My husband is a retired Distinguished Service Professor of History and we have two children, an attorney and a violinist who has just become a Realtor to join my practice.

    Aside from work and family, my interests are world travel, music and government. But most of all my interests are taking really, really good care of my customers. My aim is to be YOUR REALTOR FOR LIFE.
