Staci was truly amazing! Thorough and on the ball at every step! She sold my house quicker than expected (in a week!!) and also still managed to find me the perfect new home! At no point did I ever have to wonder what was happening ( unlike my previous agent). Staci made me completely comfortable with the whole process. When there were issues/negotiations, I was confident I had a true advocate (and a bull dog!). Could not have had a more pleasant experience during a very stressful time. Highly recommend Staci to anyone looking to sell or buy a home!

2017

goes the extra mile… and then another 50. As a first time home buyer, I knew nothing but had opinions about EVERYTHING. Jeff was patient and guided my family to the best neighborhood. We lived almost 3 hours away so Jeff even took to skype at our request for our home inspection walkthrough… then helped us out with a few maintenance and design tips. Call Jeff, and you have a trusted friend in bakersfield

If you are new to Bakersfield and looking for a home, please look her up

2017

Valerie was awesome to work with. She helped us find our house quickly and got us a great deal on it as well as asking for some other perks we wouldn’t have thought to ask for. She knew a lot about the areas we were looking into and explained the current market well. She was fun, hard working, honest and a total professional. I would recommend her a thousand times over and won’t use anyone else when buying or selling in Bakersfield!

Jeff Ward helped me buy and sell houses for many years now. He has always been friendly, professional, courteous, and very efficient each and every time.

I highly recommend him to anyone wishing to purchase or sell a home

2017

Staci went above and beyond what an agent should do. She was not pushy and did not try and talk us into a house we did not want. She was patient and very professional. She did a fantastic job selling our home. She gave great advice and had awesome people working with her. She gave us a price for our home that I initially thought was too high. I was wrong. We had two full price offers within our home being on the market for less than 48 hours. Even after both homes closed, she still was checking on things and helping us out. I highly recommend Staci if you are thinking about buying and/or selling a home.

2017

Jeff and Kari Jackson are very knowledgable in their field. I am very appreciative of the care and compassion they bring to the table as my Realtors. I would highly recommend them and would use them again in the future. This is the second house they have sold for me within 3 years.

2017

During both the selling and buying processes Valerie was very knowledgeable, and able to give us guidance on best practices for cost and time efficiency, as well as recommend and even line up excellent resources for other agents and actors in the process (lenders, repairmen, painters, etc.). She kept in regular contact with us throughout the process to ensure we knew what was going on, why things were happening or not happening, and answering any questions we had. This was tremendously helpful to us, since we did not know what to expect, what was normal, or what should be a concern. She put in a lot of time and effort and managed the necessary contacts to ensure we were able to close both homes within our expected window. I would highly recommend Valerie for the home selling or buying process, and will definitely use her services again if I have a need!

2017

Valerie is wonderful to work with and I am so thankful we had her as our realtor! She sold our home incredibly fast; we received multiple offers and were under contract within a week of listing. At the same time she also helped us find and purchase our dream home. She kept all of the people involved in the process informed and on track so that we were able to close escrow on both homes on the same day. We couldn’t have done that without her diligence and persistence! She promptly answered any questions we had and made the process easy. I would 100% recommend Valerie Driesen!

2017

Merv was a pleasure to work with. He was always puntual, had a good attitude and was very patient. He did a great job in learning what we were looking for in a new home. He has tremendous knowledge about the city and housing market. We would definitely recommend Merv to our family and friends.

2017

Merv went above and beyond his duties! We live out of state and Merv would go by and help maintain dad’s house for us, organizing repairs in a timely and cost effective manner. He communicated the process in terms we understood. It was as if a friend was walking with us each step of the way. We would highly recommend listing your home through Merv

2017

I had the most wonderful experience recently, and it was all because of Valerie! We were on the lookout for a nice place for my mother so that she could move to town and be closer to my family. We stumbled across Valerie’s listing and it was the best thing that could’ve happened to us! Not only was she extremely knowledgeable, but she has such a kind and amazing heart and really cares about each of her customers. Our deal was extremely fast, which caused anxiety For myself and my mom, but Valerie was with us each step of the way. She communicated to us almost daily to let us know what to expect, and when we hit a bump in the road with the home inspection she reassured us and we were able to come to a conclusion that left both parties happy. I truly believe that it was meant to be for us to find Valerie and moms new home. We cannot express enough gratitude to her nor recommend her enough – you won’t find a more knowledgeable, honest and caring agent.

2017

If you’re looking to buy or sell a home, I highly recommend Valerie Driesen as your realtor! She was incredible to work with and took care of so many details for us. She was not afraid to pester anyone necessary to make sure everything happened on time. When we needed contractors from painters, roofers, inspectors, etc she had people to recommend who got the job done for a good price. We received multiple offers on our home and were under contract within a week of listing our home for sale. It went so fast! She also found our new home (it wasn’t on my list of homes to see in person) and helped us through the purchasing process. She made what is normally a stressful time as easy as possible for us.

2017

There was never a doubt as to who we would use when we decided to sell our house. We have worked with Jeff before, and knew the level of service we would be receiving would not compare to anyone else. Jeff provided very quick feedback from each showing, and got the job done professionally, and efficiently. We would highly recommend using Jeff and Kari Jackson for all of your real estate needs

2017

We could not have made a better choice for our realtor than Jeff. He was always available when we reached out to him with questions or concerns (by phone, email, and text) and he was up front about every obstacle or cost that lay before us before we even put the house on the market. He also got us in touch with knowledgable and trustworthy contractors for necessary repairs which eased a lot of stress for me. Selling our house was probably the most stressful thing I’ve ever gone through, but I couldn’t imagine how much harder it would have been if not for Jeff. He’s the best

2017

We were referred to Jeff Jackson by a friend and we are sooo happy we went with him and his team. He helped us through every step in the process which was a bit daunting as our first time buying a resale home. He answered every question quickly, was very knowledgeable and educated on a lot of things to look for which kept us from bad buys. Once we found the home to purchase he was great with the negotiations and referrals for lender and home inspection contacts which we are extremely happy we worked with them. Taking care of paperwork and negotiations were a breeze with him. He was available whenever we needed him. We HIGHLY recommend calling Jeff Jackson when you need to buy or sell a house.

2017

Staci is an amazing realtor! It was my first time selling a house and she was patient, educational, and wise. She always had my best interest at heart. She was always professional with me and with her colleagues. Staci maintained contact and ALWAYS got back to me in a timely manner. I was never very stressed out because I knew I could rely on her to vet the offers, to deal with terrible septic companies, or to look up random information that comes up in the sale of an older house. Staci is has the finess to know when to be friendly and nice during negotiations but the tenacity to put her foot down when an offer or buyers agent is just too ridiculous for words. Staci is a very hard worker. She never made me feel stupid for not knowing something. She was always supportive of the property and whatever deal was on the table. Staci knows a good deal. She will make sure you make the ultimate decision but she makes that decision very easy by setting up a deal that makes sense and is in your best interest. Our house sold for top dollar, which I credit to Staci working in the way that she does. I cannot recommend her enough. I wish I had another property for Staci to sell just so I could continue to do business with her.

2017

Valerie went well above and beyond our expectations! She is a wonderful woman to work with, she walked us through the entire process, and was a true professional. She was always available for any questions that arose, and she is very diligent with the details. Valerie is a gem, and we would recommend her to anyone.

2017

Jeff Ward is extremely professional and very easy to work with. Although he is very quiet, he is extremely thorough. He works for you and helps you understand all the legal steps needed in selling your property. He meets you when it is convenient for you, not for him! He researches the market prices and lets you know what we could possible get for the sale. He examined our condo and saw what we needed to do in order to get the best price for our unit. He helped us find someone who would redo the carpet, and make small, but necessary repairs. He was there at every turn in the selling process. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to buy or sell their home or property. We were very happy with the sale of the property. He got the best price for our condo. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

2017

Jeff Ward was great, very professional he was super accommodating with our difficult schedule. Taking us to multiple listing on a moments notice. I have recommended him to numerous friends and family. I look forward to doing business with him in the future.

2017

Valerie gave good advice as to presenting home for sale. Quality promotion material on line. Quickly responded to questions we had. Kept us up to date on developments good and bad and explained how the process works.

2017

Staci was extremely helpful every step of the way. She always answered our many questions very promptly. Staci definitely goes the extra mile for her clients. We had a smooth buying experience having Staci as our agent.

2016

As first-time home buyers, my husband and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the guidance we received from Jeff Jackson. His help was invaluable to us as we navigated through the whole process, and his knowledge of the area made us feel confident that we chose the right real estate professional. He helped us realize our dream at the right time, the right price, and the right location! We look forward to working with Jeff and Kari Jackson in the future

2016

We were not looking to stay in the Bakersfeld area for long and didn’t know where to start. Our stay is to be temporary. Jeff found us the best deal we could ever had hoped for. A HUD home in Northwest Bakersfield that was ready to be sold. He masterfully assisted us in preparing and submitting an offer to HUD, in which our offer was accepted! Jeff and his team worked with us in all aspects of the purchase, from submitting the offer to closing the escrow and we are in the home. We have seen an immediate increase in our equity thanks to the insight Jeff had in showing us this HUD home. He is very reliable and honest, a true person of great character!

2016
Valerie was the best! As we live pretty far away from the property we were selling, Valerie did everything for us. From making sure repairs were scheduled and completed to ordering the cleaning crew. We always felt taken care of and knew exactly what was going on. She was always available, organized and willing to do that extra step. We sold our home quickly and without any regrets. We would definitely recommend Valerie to all, as she sure was great to work with.

2016
Wow. Staci is a fantastic realtor who treats every home’s sale or purchase like it is her own. It didn’t matter how big or small our need, Staci worked diligently to ensure our happiness. As we did the final walk through on the home we were purchasing, Staci saw my huge disappointment at the condition of the home. Without missing a beat, Staci got a team of people in to clean the interior and exterior of the house and then hired someone else to service the heating and air conditioning units – all at her expense. We also need send Staci to sell our house and found her just as eager to fight for every dollar ensuring us a better down payment.

If you are looking for either a listing or buying agent, call Staci. She will treat you like a member of her own family
2016
Valerie is fantastic! Timely, responsive, knowledgeable while realistic and caring. She goes out of her way to support and encourage. You can’t find anyone better!

2016
Merv made the whole process unbelievably simple and clear. He was readily available to ask questions. He offered wise advice and put my mind at ease that I made the right choice in choosing Merv Rash, Miramar Real Estate, Bakersfield.

2016
Merv is a first class agent and I would happily work with him again. He was instrumental in the home buying process when our family of four moved from the Bay Area to Bakersfield and fully exceeded our expectations in all aspects of the process. Merv is extremely responsive on text, phone, email, and always made time for us and flexed around our needs and the nap schedules of our young children. He also worked quickly and skillfully at every turn whether arranging a real estate tour, pulling together an offer over the 4th of July weekend, or negotiating the finer points of our purchase transaction. Throughout the process his experience and professionalism where incredibly valuable to us. Most importantly, I felt like Merv acted with my best interest in mind throughout the process consistently putting my interests ahead of his own. I find this to be a rare quality that sets Merv apart and is the reason I give him my heartiest recommendation.

2016
Jeff is very knowledgeable and reliable. He was very easy to contact by phone calls, text messages and emails, and always responded very promptly. It is clear that he really cares about his clients; we had a large list of requirements and he was patient with us, going above and beyond his responsibilities as a realtor to find us a house that was perfect for us. He is very knowledgeable about the climates of each neighborhood, and kept up-to-date on new homes in the market. Even after we already closed on our house, he arranged for all the necessary repairs to be done, to get our new home ready for move-in day. I would recommend him without reservation.

2016
Buying a home is a very personal, exciting, and sometimes scary experience. Jeff and Val made the whole process so smooth and even fun! They never once treated us like we were just another transaction. They’re kind and honest, they answer their phones, respond to emails and texts quickly… I always felt welcome to contact them. There were some unexpected things that came up (like in most escrows!) and Jeff did all he could– and way, way more– to make things easier for us. I could never say enough good things about Jeff and Val. They were a huge blessing to my family!

2016
Merv is a very kind and thoughtful real estate agent. He always follows through with any promises he makes. He is very knowledgeable about the business. He is very truthful when asked questions. If he doesn’t know the answer he will let you know. He certainly takes the time to explain the process with you. And he will inform you in a timely manner what to do next and what to expect. Whenever we left him a message he returned it promptly. He is very professional and yet very friendly! Not overbearing at all. Very humble man. He definitely knows how to negotiate. Definitely someone you can trust who will see it through for you!

2016
Jeff was very knowledgeable about a reasonable price for the house. He was very considerate of my mom’s feelings and questions as she was selling her house. She had lived there for 64 years so dealing with Realtors was a new experience for her. Jeff and everyone we dealt with in his group was great. Would definitely recommend Jeff to anyone needing a realtor

2016
I met Jeff through the reviews I found. I was in a tight situation and had to sell my rental fast to make back the repair costs I had to put in from past tenants. He made a few cosmetic suggestions and we did some updates to make it marketable. The house sold fast and Jeff even went out of his way to meet with the contractors doing the updates to make sure all went well. He was on top of everything for me since I was a distance away and I would definately go to him again

2016
My wife and I had a great experience working with Merv purchasing our first home. Merv exhibits professionalism, expeditious in communication and was completely helpful through the entire process; highly recommended

2016
Merv was friendly and professional. We felt secure with his expertise and comfortable with his demeanor. Any question or request me made of him was done nearly immediately. When portions of the process stalled, he worked diligently in contacting the bank or buyer’s agent to get the issue resolved quickly so that the process continued on smoothly. Working with him was hands-down the best experience we’ve ever had with a realtor. If I had a choice, I would work Merv for all my future real estate needs. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!

2016
Jeff put in the work looking at all my new construction options even before I was able to purchase, soon I was able to purchase and the heat was on we looked at all the houses all over again. Thanks Jeff.

2016
Valerie was very helpful in finding a new home for us and mom after my dad passed, she was very dependable, never made us feel like we were asking to much and we did looked at a lot of homes, always had a feeling of trust that she had our best interest in mind, always keep us informed till the end. I would recommend Valerie to anyone and I will us her for future real estate needs. Couldn’t have ask for more.

2016
Valerie was a superstar for us on both ends of our real estate needs. We were traveling while everything happened, and her communication and handling of everything by far exceeded our expectations. If we ever have any needs, she will be where we go. Everything was a success!!!

2016
Jeff was a great pleasure to work with. The process was easy and smooth, great attention to detail and follow through. I would definitely recommend Jeff and his staff if you have a real estate transaction.

2016
Jeff was able to sell our house within 24 hours of its listing. We received a good offer which exceeded our original expectation. He was extremely knowledgeable and efficient.

2016
Valerie is an outstanding professional. She is a trusted real estate agent. She will tell you the thrust of your assets and she is a lovely person and easy to work with. I love the the way that she approach the selling process and she works for an excellent company. If you are looking for a win to win business she is the one. She sold my house in less than 45 days in fact the first buyer bought my house. She is amazing and I highly recommend her.

2016
Staci was great. She was very helpful and always made herself available and got appointments right away if there was a home we wanted to see. She helped us through the home purchasing process and was always looking out for our best interests.

2016
Very pleased with the service. Professional, available, resourceful. Merv helped me from a list of properties to a recommended loaner, inspectors and even a handyman that still helps me with the remodeling. Highly recommended.

2016
I enjoyed working with Jeff very much! He got me more than other realtors felt I could get, and my home sold in 12 days. His marketing is top notch, which brought a lot of potential buyers. Jeff was always there for me whenever I had questions. When it came to negotiations, I trusted his opinion and guidance. He’s the best!

2016
Merv was extremely helpful and was always on top of things throughout the home loan process. As first time buyers, we were happy to have someone like Merv on our side to explain and walk us through the entire home buying process.

2016
Merv was very knowledgable and helpful throughout the home buying process. He was easy to reach and communicated important information in a timely manner.

2016
My family and I have used Jeff Jackson and associates for two home purchases and sold one of my homes through them. Jeff was 100% professional during the entire process and provided excellent advise throughout. Jeff was willing to bend over backwards during the selling and buying of my homes, and actually did to make the experience less stressful for us. Jeff marketed the selling of my home very well and received offers within a couple days of putting my house on the market. Jeff used a professional photographer during the selling of my home which showed heads and shoulders over competitive properties. I would strongly recommend contacting Jeff Jackson and Associates if you’re thinking about buying or selling a home.

2016
My family and I are very satisfied with Merv’s work. He made everything stress free and we couldn’t be happier in our new home. We highly recommend him to anyone searching for a home!

2016
Jeff is an amazing agent and a great person, as is Valerie his assistant! I was making a long distance move on my own and it was a bit stressful, especially not knowing anything about buying or selling a home! Jeff was always there for me to answer any questions I had at any time (and there was alot! ) And never made me feel bad about asking them! even when he was out of town with his family. When I traveled up to Bakersfield to look at homes, he was very prepared with printouts of all the homes I wanted to see. I felt like he really cared about getting me into the right house, and was quick to point out any bad or good points in each of the homes we looked at. When our house closed I received a sweet gift basket and card. Jeff and Valerie were even there for me after closing. They arranged for someone to hook up my washer, dryer, and refrigerator water line, gave me references for gardners, handy man services, ect. Long story short I HIGHLY recommend Jeff Jackson and his team, and when we buy another home in the Bakersfield area he will be the first person I call. Thank you so much Jeff! God Bless!!!

2016
Jeff is basically awesome in every way. He initially met with me when we were trying to decide between selling our house vs. renting it out, as we were having another one built. He offered his professional thoughts and did not push one way or another. I respect him so much for that. He is down to earth and easy to talk to. We had a 2nd meeting in which my wife was present, where we discussed more details, and decided to list our house with Jeff. After he left, my wife said, “He’s cool. I like him.” I responded, “I told you! He’s awesome!”I chose Jeff after reading several raving reviews on zillow. They were 100% accurate. I cant put into words how impressed I was with Jeff’s character, professionalism, and skill in getting each task accomplished. Jeff worked the deal so we could rent back our house after it sold and not have to move twice. He also dealt with the buyers in understanding the details of the solar panels on the house. Both of those could have been obstacles and Jeff took care of it without a hicccup. There were things that popped up with the buyer and their agent and usually Jeff just handled it without bothering us with it. He was the type of person that is someone you can count on, and not have to worry about anything. I have told all my friends how great Jeff and his team are and that I wish everyone did business like them. About 6 months before we met with Jeff, we were considering buying a particular house and met a guy named Merv who was showing it. I remember being very impressed with him. I later found out when Jeff was telling us about the members of his team, that Merv was on Jeffs team, and it made sense! They are both amazing.Jeff has surrounded himself with great people. I also got to meet Valerie, Jeff’s assistant, who set up the showings and communicated with us very well. I was also quite impressed with her. Jeff has a great team, and anyone should feel privileged to work with them. I now consider Jeff a friend, and recommend him to anyone.

2016
I couldn’t have asked for a better Realtor. Jeff and his office made our first experience the absolute easiest. Even after the purchase was complete, Jeff and his office have been readily available for our needs. I would definitely recommend Jeff to ALL people looking to enjoy their purchasing/selling experience. We are looking to purchase more property in the near future and Jeff will def be our first call!

2016
We would certainly recommend to family and friends Jeff and Kari Jackson and their Team (Valerie Driesen in particular). They were always available and quick to answer our questions and attend to our concerns. They were professional, put in additional efforts when needed and made us feel like friends. We will definitely rely on Jeff and his team if we need to buy or sell a home in Bakersfield.

2016
I originaly purchased my home from Jeff when we moved here 13 years ago. I contacted him when we were ready to sell because he was great to work with then. Jeff is like a fine wine that has gotten better over time. We sold and closed our home 8 months after the original listing. This was in spite of our home falling out of contract 2 times and our home was some what unique because it has 2 separate living quarters. Jeff was there through all the craziness and was very helpful walking us through the minefield. He also there during the buying process which was also difficult because we had to cancel 2 purchases when our home fell out of contract. Jeff and his team were always available when we needed them and gave us advice through the buying and selling process that was spot on. I would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling

2016
Staci helped my wife and I sell a rental property that sold in less than a week with an all cash buyer that closed in 10 days for the price we were asking! After that she found us our dream home and negotiated a price that we could have never imagine she could do. Finally, quickly and stress free she sold the house we moved out of in less than two weeks! It was the best real estate experience I have ever had and I have done many real estate transactions. Staci is very dedicated to her clients, always got right back to us and really cares about the wants and needs of the people she serves. She gives 100% and will not rest until you are satisfied. Her expertise is unmatched and was made to be in this business! Thank you Staci!

2016
Staci Wright is an absolute asset to Jeff Jackson’s crew and she was so great through the entire process of my home buying experience. Staci’s knowledge of the market and great neighborhoods in Bakersfield are a set above the rest!

2015
We used Staci when we bought our first home and had a wonderful experience so of course we called her when we were ready to sell. We had a very long escrow and Staci was there every step of the way doing what was best for us. I could always get a hold of her no matter the time of day or where she was. I can’t wait until we are ready to buy our next home so we can work with her again

2015
I express much appreciation and gratitude toward Jeff and Kari Jackson in assisting me with selling my home. Not only are the trustworthy, knowledgeable of the business, but also filled with much patience and kindness in assisting me in the ease and grace of the process. I would HIGHLY recommend them to future buyers/sellers, and I will be using them again in the very near future in the selling of another home.

2015
Jeff Jackson has represented me in several real estate transactions. His understanding of local market conditions is solid, enabling him to accurately gauge the value of properties. He is able to adapt to unusual circumstances and leverage them to advantage. Prompt at responding to all communications, Jeff provides complete and accurate explanations. I have had several coworkers retain Jeff and they have been very satisfied. I will continue to give Jeff Jackson my strongest recommendation without any reservation. He is a great real estate agent with a lot of common sense.

2015
Staci is an amazing agent! She’s very personable, goes above and beyond in her job, is reliable, knowledgable, gets back to you quickly, honest and encouraging in the buying and selling process of your home. I would recommend her, and have, to anyone if they are looking for a great realtor!!

2015
We highly recommend Merv if you are looking to buy a house. As first time house buyers, we had little to no idea how the house buying process worked. We reached out to Merv for help and he immediately responded. First he handed us a booklet that was very informative, and he was very patient with our seemingly never-ending questions – from getting pre-approved for a loan all the way through to the close of escrow, and even beyond. One month after our escrow closed, he is still helping us and kindly answering our questions. He explained everything thoroughly throughout every step, telling us both the good and the bad in order to make sure we understood everything and knew all potential situations that could occur, and he seemed very knowledgeable about the process from both a buyer’s and seller’s perspective. He was always very easy to get ahold of, in any way we preferred to contact him, and he immediately responded almost all hours of the day. It was very apparent he was more concerned with our happiness and satisfaction in our future home than he was in closing the deal as soon as possible, and he did not rush us to make any decision. We have heard, seen, and read about some bad experiences with real estate agents from friends and internet searches, but we can honestly say that we had no complaints or disappointments with Merv’s performance as our realtor. If you want an honest and friendly agent, we recommend you choose Merv.

2015
We had a terrific experience with Jeff Jackson selling our property in Bakersfield. We live in Northern California and it would have been difficult for us to travel frequently to Bakersfield. Jeff gave us excellent advice on setting the price, making the house attractive to potential buyers, and streamlining the process. We think the sale was a win-win for both ourselves and the buyers.

2015
Jeff helped us listing and selling our investment property in Bakersfield, while we lived about 5 hours of driving. He helped with getting local contractors to bid and complete upgrade projects, and in some cases used his own money to secure time and deal, and not waiting for us to figure out payments from a distance. He was very patient with us and since we were not there physically, we just follwed his process. He is prompt in returning calls and messages and has attention to detail. We trust him and would not hesitate to do business with him again. I would strongly encourage you to pick up the phone and give him a call – just to get his perspective and second opinion, if you already have an agent.

2015
Couldn’t of asked for better real estate agent. He is really friendly and always gets back to you promptly. He definitely knows this town and can find what what you’re looking for. I had a great experience and will be recommending all of my friends and family to him.

2015
Jeff’s honesty, integrity, & professionalism were first class. He stayed on top of our situation and provided frequent updates. It was very apparent that he was looking out for our best interests, and it was enjoyable working with him. I would definitely recommend him and his team.

2015
Jeff Jackson and team had my house sold in only two weeks…very knowledgeable with the market and great communication skills. I would highly recommended Jeff and his team to anyone wanting to sell their home!

2015

Jeff Jackson is extremely hard working and honest. He has helped me buy and sell two homes and I will definitely use him again in the future. I could not be happier with Jeff and all of his staff. You could not find a better agent or support staff.

My wife Katie and I recently listed our home with Merv Rash and Jeff Jackson and Associates.  Merv did an amazing job of helping us sell our home.  From the initial meeting to the closing day he was prompt and  professional in everything he did for us.  We had tried to sell our home before with other Realtors with no success.  Merv helped us settle on a fair price and then aggressively marketed our home on several platforms.  He hosted multiple open houses for us and each time fielded interest from possible buyers that resulted in possible offers on our home. There were a few bumps in the road with the escrow process that Merv helped us smooth out in short order.  There was never a time when we felt “out of the loop” in dealing with Merv.  It was a pleasure to have him represent us, and we would recommend Merv to all of our friends who need to sell their homes.  Merv helped us realize our dream of moving toward retirement.  We couldn’t be more grateful!

Choosing Staci Wright as our realtor was the best decision we made!  Staci went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us find the perfect house.  Being first time home buyers she provided us with a wealth of knowledge and coached us every step of the way.  We have already recommended Staci to some family and friends and will continue to do so!

2015

Jeff and his team were professional, responsive and kept us informed through out the sale of our home. We took his recommendations and our house sold in a week and for more than we expected. We highly recommend him for all realty needs.

2015

We would like to say a few words Valerie Driesen. Valerie was amazing through both our buying and selling process. She is sweet and friendly, but fought for our needs at the appropriate times. She was always available for questions and concerns. Valerie is extremely organized:  such an excellent quality in a realtor. She actively kept up with all the ancillary people involved in the sale and purchase of our homes. Valerie is ‘on it!’
We would highly recommend her for any buying or selling needs.

2015

Jeff and Kari are the utmost professionals. We only recommend them as our Realtors to our friends & family. They go above and beyond their duties to make everything go smoothly and stress free. We used them to sell and buy and both processes were smooth and easy. Their whole staff was friendly and helpful. We only recommend Jeff and Kari Jackson.

2015

I did a few investment properties with Jeff Jackson & Associates and was very happy with their knowledge, professionalism and availability. Always willing and able to answer my questions and were very responsive throughout the transactions. I never had to ask them for an update, I was kept in the loop the entire way. Highly recommend them for any real estate related transactions.

Jeff helped us listing and selling our investment property in Bakersfield, while we lived about 5 hours of driving. He helped with getting local contractors to bid and complete upgrade projects, and in some cases used his own money to secure time and deal, and not waiting for us to figure out payments from a distance. He was very patient with us and since we were not there physically, we just followed his process. He is prompt in returning calls and messages and has attention to detail. We trust him and would not hesitate to do business with him again. I would strongly encourage you to pick up the phone and give him a call – just to get his perspective and second opinion, if you already have an agent.

2015

Jeff was a tremendous help during our home buying experience. He was loyal, honest, and always had our best interests in mind. He was always quick to respond to any questions we had. I highly recommend Jeff Jackson.

2015

Jeff was very helpful throughout the process. He never pressured us and was available by phone/text 24/7 for any questions we had. After we decided against buying the first house that we had made an offer on, Jeff offered to pay for the inspection fee on the next house we chose. Not only did he pay that fee, he also arranged to have the house cleaned prior to us moving in. He did not have to do any of this; he simply went above and beyond. I highly recommend Jeff Jackson for any real estate needs.
2014
We have been extremely happy working with Jeff Jackson and his team, he has helped us buy and sell. He is very detail oriented, thorough and easy to work with. We appreciate his honesty and responsiveness to our needs, and highly recommend him.

Working with Jeff was an enjoyable experience. He was very thorough and to the point. One thing that sticks out is the communication skills. I got emails and text messages on a regular basis and never felt out of the loop. A+ for him and his team!
2014
Staci and the Miramar staff are absolutely wonderful. We were so pleased with our experience and will recommend the staff to others. During the experience, Staci had our best interest at heart. Selling and buying a house is a very stressful time and Staci made the experience one we will remember. We are so happy in our new house and owe it to our wonderful Realtor.
2014
I cannot say enough good things about Merv Rash as our Realtor! We were really in a lurch striving to find something in a tight time window. Merv went above and beyond to ensure that we found something suitable before our deadline. He worked us through the hurdles with the mortgage broker, which could have developed untold delays, and catered to our every need. Merv is an incredibly caring individual and given the opportunity, we will use his services again.
2014
As first time home buyers we knew absolutely nothing going into the process. Staci was as helpful as she was friendly and we could not ask for more from a real estate agent. I know a few friends who bought homes around the same time we did and Staci went above and beyond what any of the other agents did. She gave us many different options while still keeping all of our requirements in mind until we found the perfect opportunity. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Staci to anyone I know!
2014
Throughout the entire process of selling my mother’s house, Merv was very professional and helpful, and gave us good advice that made the sale go smoothly.
I would use Merv again or recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking for a Realtor. He is willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. We were very satisfied with his work.
2014
As a professional Realtor Jeff came across as someone who knows the tricks of the trade and is easy to talk to, good at listening, readily available, and at all times was quick at returning my calls.Jeff was very thorough and did more for me than I ever expected from a Realtor. He quickly learned what type of home I was looking for and did not waste time showing homes that did not meet my requirements.Jeff took the time to call and keep me in the loop and updated me on every step from start to closing.His attention to detail was invaluable from the home selection,offer,inspection and closing processes.He also went above and beyond to offer his expertise in helping me to find reputable referrals for home improvements I wanted to do to my new home. I will not hesitate to recommend Jeff to any of my family and friends who might need a Realtor.

2014
We picked Merv Rash over three other agents/brokers because he was the most responsive to our questions and follow through. He proved to be just as responsive throughout our dealings with him. He kept his cool and optimism through one of the most exasperating and delayed frought escrows I have experienced in 30 years of doing realty. I would recommend Merv to any and everyone.

2014
We were so fortunate to use Jeff Ward when purchasing our new home in Bakersfield. As our Realtor, he helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. We have a large family, so finding a home to fit our needs was our number one priority.
In short, he was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Jeff was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. We would recommend him to anyone.

2014
Staci is the kind of Realtor that will continue to receive our highest recommendation. She was very easy to work with and was always available when we had questions. She went out of her way to accommodate our home search and had the patience to help find the perfect house for our family. We couldn’t have asked for a better home buying experience and thank Staci and her team at Jeff Jackson & Associates for it.

2014
“I cannot say enough great things about our Realtor Staci Wright. She went above and beyond to find us our first home. She even spent her birthday taking us around to see different places. I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a home and we will definitely call her when we are ready for our next one”.

2014
Jeff helped my husband and I sell two homes and working with him was great! Jeff was very knowledgeable, thorough and efficient. The results he produced for us were outstanding. Our home sold very quickly and he kept us informed of the transaction each step of the way. We have recommended Jeff to friends and would recommend him to anyone looking for a Realtor.

2014
My wife and I felt truly cared for by Jeff and Annemarie from the start which eventually led to complete trust when we experienced complete follow-through from what they committed to saying they would do. Jeff and Annemarie’s performance from the start was first class which continued through our entire listing agreement with them. We had been disappointed by other real estate brokers and place high expectations on Jeff. Jeff and staff overwhelmingly exceeded our expectations by their performance. With all this highlighting of Jeff Jackson & Associates professionalism, I have to point out the bonus of working with them was it was actually fun. The entire staff is so good natured and gracious it was a pleasure to work together. Their service is truly world class.

2013
Jeff has helped us purchase 2 homes and we have recommended him to friends on multiple other occasions for his real estate expertise. In addition, Jeff has helped us get acquainted with the business of owning a rental. Jeff understands the real estate process can be confusing for most people, and does a great job of assisting his clients navigate the many steps along the way. My wife and I often had different top priorities with properties we looked at, and Jeff does an excellent job of finding the right places for us to look and highlight how each either met or didn’t meet those criteria. I would recommend Jeff to anyone needing an expert in the local real estate market and continue to use him myself for all my real estate needs.

2013
Jeff and his team helped us list and sell our previous home and find us a new home. Jeff is very knowledgeable and doesn’t pressure you into anything. He gives truthful and accurate advice and is incredibly responsive. I still feel comfortable contacting Jeff regarding any real estate questions all these years later and he continues to provide wonderful information in a timely manner. I have referred Jeff to friends and they have also been extremely pleased with the work he does. Jeff Jackson will continue to be my agent for years to come.

2013
Jeff was always available to answer any questions we had and to guide us in the process of buying our home, always letting us know what was happening next. Truly a professional and will look forward to working with him again.

2013
Jeff was referred to us about 5 years ago by someone that we trust. Since then, we have bought and sold 2 homes with Jeff. Jeff is by far the easiest going Realtor I have ever met. He never once tried to push us into making an offer that we weren’t comfortable with. He was always looking for houses that matched our criteria to come on to the market and would call us immediately. Above all, Jeff is honest, patient and knowledgeable about the ever-changing market. We will absolutely use Jeff Jackson anytime we need a realtor in the future.

2013
A great agent you can trust! I highly recommend Jeff Jackson for all your real estate needs. He responds in a timely manner and takes a personal interest in finding the property you are looking for. He has not only helped us find a good investment, but also assisted our kids when they were looking.

2013
Jeff was our agent for buying an investment property. We had daily emails on homes that were specific to our criteria. When we wanted to look at properties, he set up the appointments and was always on time. When we finally found the property we wanted, he walked us through the entire purchase. It was a very difficult short sale, and he and his staff were extremely helpful. I highly recommend Jeff Jackson.

2013
Jeff was extremely helpful and patient with us as we looked for a short sale home in a specific part of town. His knowledge of real estate made us very comfortable and confident trusting his opinion. He helped us find a home and work through the difficult short sale process. We are certain we would not have been successful in the purchase of this home without Jeff.

2013
Jeff Jackson helped us get our new home and helped us sell our old home. He is very good at his job and is very responsive and professional. He helped us find the home that best fits our family’s needs. He was very patient in showing us all the homes we wanted to see and always made time to fit our schedule. He is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in Bakersfield. He walked us through the entire process of applying and getting our loan funded. He negotiated the best deal possible on our home and we are very pleased and do not have any regrets.

2013
Jeff was recommended to us by some friends. He sold their home in a few hours before a sign could even get put up! They spoke so highly of him that we decided to give him a chance. Definitely the best decision! He sold our house in less than 5 hours and found us our new home in a couple of weeks! He is very knowledgeable about the area and really listens to you. He is available to answer questions & walk you through the process of selling and buying your house. As a result of having Jeff as our Realtor, buying and selling a home has not been stressful at all! I will definitely refer him to anyone getting ready to sell&/or buy.
