Saturday, April 05, 2008 - Jackye McCarley
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Jackye McCarley is one of the first people a family will meet when getting off a plane or driving into town to relocate for a job. "You pick them up at the airport, you eat with them, you work with them, you deal with their money and their emotions," said McCarley, who sells for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. "They know nothing about you, but they need to be convinced sometimes they are doing the right thing." McCarley, who primarily finds homes for clients who are relocating into North Atlanta, Alpharetta and North Fulton, has been in the real estate business since 1986.
This year, the Atlanta Board of Realtors is awarding McCarley in the new homes category.

Jackye McCarley
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Although Jackye McCarley's husband, Hugh, retired recently, she has no plans to join him anytime soon. "I love this job," McCarley said. "I enjoy dealing with people, and I've always had an interest in real estate." It shows. Working with 50-50 partner Kathy Blau, McCarley racked up $12 million in sales in 2002 ($24 million combined) as on-site agent at St. Marlo the upscale South Forsyth golf course community for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. A member of the Million-Dollar Club for 15 years, McCarley deals in property ranging in price from $500,000 to over $3.0 million. "The market under $650,000 has been very good," she said. "Higher-end properties are selling a little more slowly, though." A native of Alabama, McCarley has lived in Atlanta since 1984. Long hours leave little time for hobbies, although McCarley does play some golf. The job requires wearing many hats, from psychologist to banker to canine baby sitter. "Relocating to another city is a very emotional experience," she said. "People cry because they don't want to be in a new city, and we console them. We'll even baby-sit their dogs overnight when the hotel won't take them."
