Meet Jackie Adkins....
I was born and raised in beautiful Victoria BC, only moving away for a few years to go to University in Vancouver and Ottawa. Being away made me really appreciate what a wonderful city Victoria is. After getting married, I moved back to Victoria to raise my own family here. My husband and I have two adult sons. We live in a home not far from the neighbourhood I grew up in.
Although always passionate about Real Estate, I followed my desire to be of service and help others, pursuing a career in Social Services and Human Resources before starting my career in Real Estate. I am fortunate now to be a top producing REALTOR® for Royal Lepage, achieving the Royal Lepage Red Diamond Award for ranking in the top 2% of Royal Lepage agents Canada wide in 2021 and the MLS Gold Award for ranking in the top 10% of all Realtors in Victoria, consistently year over year. I was selected for the Victoria Real Estate Board’s Professional Standards Committee in 2012, where I served for 5 years before being elected to a Director position in 2017-2019. This was both an honour for me, and a statement of my commitment to professionalism of our industry.
My prior work history has helped me develop strong communication skills that allow me to help clients through the process of buying and selling their homes. I am one of few agents in Victoria that has the Certified Negotiation Expert designation which enables me to advocate and negotiate strongly on your behalf to help you meet your real estate goals. I am always learning and growing and strive to educate my clients along the way so that the best decsions are made. The best reward is a happy client!
My goal is to be of service to my clients, making this process as stress free as possible. My passion for residential real estate, my in-depth knowledge of Victoria and surrounding areas, coupled with a background in counseling and negotiations add up to a REALTOR® who consistently provides knowledgeable and thoughtful service. I look forward to working with you!
