Welcome from Jackie Witbeck, Associate Broker
Not everyone in life gets to love what they do - I am one of the lucky ones. I have been helping Sellers and Buyers in the Capital Region for over 20 years and truly enjoy working with my clients. . . whether it be counseling the First Time Buyers excitedly looking for their first home. . . or helping the Move-Up Buyers graduate to their new home . . . or Baby Boomers preparing to scale down for retirement years in their next home. . . or Seniors who are going to Retirement Living. I would appreciate the opportunity to help you as well - just give me a call or email to get started. Jackie

My previous profession was as a paralegal for many years - another job that I loved. When the prominent attorney that I had worked for retired, it was time for me to choose a totally different career. I truly enjoy working with people, so Real Estate was the perfect choice.
As a Buyer, this is a great time to purchase: interest rates are fantastic, homes are priced reasonably and supply is plentiful to choose from. My Buyer Agency training will help you step by step.
My "SRES " designation is a National Association of Realtors course designed to prepare us to work with Seniors - I enjoyed learning the ins and outs, and am here to guide you through that path as well.
As a member of the Relocation Team, I receive special training to work with relocating clients. I know this can be an exciting, although sometimes stressful time for both the client relocating as well as his/her family. I look forward to being of service and helping you through the entire process and making it as smooth a transition as possible for you and your family.
I worked with a Builder for many years and learned much about new construction, attending every workshop and seminar available as well as many National Association of HomeBuilders Trade Shows. It is valuable information that helps me with my Buyers as they go through the process of building a new home.
Facing Foreclosure or a Short Sale in this market is not where any seller wants to be. I have experience in both, and will use my knowledge to guide you through this difficult time.

In my 'downtime' I enjoy camping, dinner parties, travel, swimming, reading, hitting a golfball around the course, cooking, kayaking, time with our 2 Golden Retrievers and playing Canasta!
I have been married for 42 years to my best friend, have 2 grown sons and now their families include my 5 grandchildren. I am lucky because they all live closeby and I can see them often.
