Devin and I chose Jean and the Provident Living team AGAIN for our 7th real estate transaction, and we were able to take advantage of the Homes for Heroes program through Provident Living. From our sale and our purchase, Jean saved us roughly $4,000 through H4H. We have referred ALL our friends to her and most have used her with the same excellent service she has always delivered to us.
Devin & Teresa Thackston Hogan - Harrisburg NC (buyers)
Jean is fantastic. She showed us relevant properties, listened to our "must have" list and kept us within our budget. She handled all the details for us keeping us on track to close on time. Easiest house buying experience EVER!
Eddie & Amy Portis - Charlotte NC (buyers)
She is genuine. Jean went well out of her way to help and guide/direct me in the selling of my house, then later my land. When I didn't know, she put me at ease with her knowledge and big heart. I feel she does everyone like this and is a true blessing to the real estate world.
Mary H. Reid - Charlotte NC (seller)
Jean, you and your organization Provident Living Inc helped me buy the house at 2247 Barrowcliffe Dr in 2011 and sell it in 2016. In both occasions we enjoyed the prompt and professional services, advice and consultation you provided. I will have no hesitation in recommending you and your organization.
Srinivasan & Sharmila Prabhushankar - Concord NC (buyers and sellers)
Third time is the charm! Jean was very patient with me in my decision to sell the home my late husband and I built. I found her to be competent, proficient, and caring. Thank you Jean!!
Cynthia Carter - Rockwell NC (seller)
Extraordinary barely touches the surface of who Jean Griswold-Lynn is. I was selling my home of 70 years in NH and Jean was my broker for the purchase of my NC house. Even at this great distance, she was right by my side, day or night. With every delay on my NH closing, Jean was seconds away, helping me breathe and taking care of every detail involved with the NC sellers. Her support, her responsiveness, and her impeccable character were exemplary (superior, even to my choice of brokers in NH). I cannot imagine going through this difficult process with anyone other than Jean Griswold-Lynn and her equally supportive staff.
Maria Seavey - Concord (buyer)
Jean was the best realtor I ever worked with in my life. You can't go wrong having her as your realtor. She gave my wife and I 5-star service when we were looking for house to purchase and house to sell.
TK Yahagi - Charlotte, NC (buyers and sellers)
Provident Living has now completed 5 Real Estate transactions for our family. We wouldn't trust our properties to anyone else.
Teresa Hogan - Concord, NC (seller)
Did a great job on showing me market info on homes in the area before I put an offer on the house we were interested in. This is my 6th move and no other agent had done that in the past.
Kevin Gehl - Concord, NC (buyer)
Jean made this by far the easiest selling experience we have ever had. She helped us price the home correctly and led us with great advice throughout the whole process. Fabulous from beginning to end. Will definitely refer others!
Eddie & Amy Portis - Concord, NC (sellers)
Christy was so helpful and knowledgeable in all aspects of our home buying process. She was always prompt in returning calls. She was very professional, and we will gladly recommend her to others.
David & Tabatha Dennis - Salisbury, NC (buyers)
Christy is very knowledgeable, very professional, and a joy to work with. You learned right away that if she said "Don't worry, I'll handle it", that she would. We could depend on her to help with whatever issues came up during the process.
Marsha Henderson & George Brooks - North Myrtle Beach
Very professional and courteous, very thorough and knowledgeable. Don't change a thing. Nice job! Look forward to more great work from you and your staff. Thank you.
Anson Medlin - Mount Pleasant, NC (seller)
She is wonderful. I was going through a big trial in my life the first day I met her. She walked in gave me a big heart to heart hug and told me everything would be ok, and it was ok.
Mary Reid - Charlotte, NC (seller)
I had a bad experience with a prior realtor. Your professionalism was greatly appreciated. (Christy)
Michael Johnson - Concord, NC (buyer)
Outstanding service during our selling process. Jean handled the selling for us totally as we were not in N.C. Highly recommend Jean to anyone looking for real estate sales!!
Harold Seagraves - Concord, NC (seller)
All was handled without problems. The house was sold within 4 days with 4 offers. Couldn't ask for anything better.
James and Judith Fox - Concord NC (sellers)
Provident Living was a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process of buying our home. We are 1st time home buyers and Jean made the process simple/understandable and was always prompt with answers to any questions we had. This is a wonderful company and we would definitely recommend them to others buying/selling a house.
anonymous - Huntersville NC (buyers)
Jean is very confident, professional, and great at her job. We were absolutely confident in her ability to sell our house.
Chris & Sam Volesky, Concord NC (sellers)
Jean was great! She made the whole process the least stressful it could be. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about everything. She was always there when I needed questions answered. Highly recommend her!
anonymous - Charlotte NC (seller)
Jean and her team have provided invaluable support over four and a half years as we rented and eventually sold our home. They provided critical assistance and references, enabling us to manage our property while stationed overseas. When tenant or property management issues arose, they were quick to respond on our behalf, and treated the issues as if they were their own. Thank you Jean, for making us a part of your "family"!
Scott & Tracy Sherman - Harrisburg NC (sellers)
I have worked with Jean Griswold for several years both professionally and personally. Being a loan officer I have the opportunity to work with many different Realtors and Jean by far excels in every area. I have never had a client be dissatisfied when working with Jean. Her many years of experience as well as her no-nonsense approach to real estate is a huge asset to her clients on both the listing and buying side of the transaction. Jean's personal qualities will also stand out as you know she is trustworthy and honest and will always go the extra mile to ensure things are handled "right". I also used Jean's and Provident Living’s services on a personal note for a home I wanted to rent. She came and viewed the home, made some recommendations on little things to be "done" to prepare the home to be listed for rent, had the professional photographs done and got our property listed on her websites and advertising channels - within the first 24 hours, we had numerous individuals viewing the home; we actually got to pick from an array of qualified folks; the home was rented and deal 'done' within days! Absolutely impressive! Jean knows her business and it will reflect in the quality of work you will find in her - whether you are buying, selling or need a property manager! Jean gets the job done and done "right"!
Theresa Crowell Green, Senior Loan Officer, Movement Mortgage
Very Simple: If you want the best call Jean at Provident Living. Totally honest, involved, doing the best they can, this is what they are all about.
Donna & Chuck Gerlach, Concord NC (sellers)
Jean's service is professional and delightful in every detail.
Bryan & Sharon Aalborg, Indian Trail NC (buyers)
Jean was great to work with and very accommodating to our schedules. She worked hard to find us the right homes to look at and gave us great advice for our choices. Overall she was awesome and we would strongly recommend her to anyone in need of a great realtor.
Craig & Sonda Gentry, Mooresville NC (buyers)
Jean and her team were a pleasure to work with. She was very knowledgeable about the entire home buying process. She listened to everything that we wanted. She had such a positive outlook and attitude. We were first time home buyers, and she helped us buy our dream home! She is the best!!
Joel & Theresa Henderson, Charlotte NC (buyers)
My husband and I just bought our first house and we were a little leery about going through the process alone. We were referred to Jean through my lender. She was absolutely brilliant! It was wonderful having her on my side through all the negotiating and the setting up of meetings and such. She is a fantastic person who will do whatever is in her power to make sure you are treated right and really taken care of. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone... friend or not. She made the whole process painless and actually enjoyable. She will be on your side, looking out for you and your well being from day one. Jean IS the best.
Matt & Lauren Hutchins, Midland NC (buyers)
I had a tenant move out of my home suddenly and needed to re-lease the property very quickly. I am extremely busy with work and required an expert real estate professional who could just take over and get the job done. I found that person in Jean Griswold. Jean had the experience and determination to quickly assess what the home needed in order to maximize rent and find a tenant quickly. I did exactly what Jean instructed and within forty-eight (48) hours of Jean marketing the property (using multiple mediums including social media) I had six (6) qualified renters offering full asking price and we signed a lease less than twenty-four (24) hours later. If you want fast positive results and at the same time enjoy the experience look no further than Jean Griswold with Provident Living – SHE IS THE BEST!!!
Scott Green, Charlotte NC (landlord)
Jean, congratulations on your great new websites! As a Realtor who has worked with you as a colleague at ReMax Leading Edge in Concord and who has also engaged you to represent me and my family members, I confidently recommend you and refer my interested contacts to you. I know first hand your high ethical standards and diligent work. When you take on a job, I know it will get your committed engagement and the best informed professional service. I am delighted to see the growth and success of your Company. Best wishes always!
Eve Roberts, Concord NC (seller)
Jean assisted us with the purchase of our new home. From being involved in the real estate industry for decades, we have worked with numerous real estate agents at differing capacities. Without a doubt, Jean stands out as the absolute best agent we have ever dealt with. Her professionalism, thoroughness, and attention to detail are outstanding. Our transaction contained additional complexity due to the fact that we currently live in Florida and we had North Carolina co-signers on the loan. Jean was able to communicate seamlessly with all parties and went the extra mile in assisting the co-signers with their obligations. As far as we are concerned, Jean is the gold standard by which all realtors should be measured. We have thanked Jean in person on numerous occasions for her unparalleled level of service that she provided us. Without any doubt, when we learn that someone is looking for a realtor, we will refer them to Jean.
Kim & Marissa Medlin, Mt Pleasant NC (buyers)
Jean is awesome! She knows the laws and your rights. She is willing to fight for you! Thanks again; you are THE BEST!
Arlene Blocker, Charlotte NC (buyer)
Jean was an awesome realtor ... looking out for MY best interest! Also was the one to lead me to the best lender :-). She was great!
Anonymous, Midland NC (buyer)
I did not think Jean would be able to sell my house under the circumstances...but she did! She was wonderful!
William & Lisa List, Indian Trail NC (sellers)
Jean took a tough real estate situation and helped us get to the finish line. She is an expert in her industry and has an attitude of "we can do it"! She is constantly communicating with you on all the steps that are taking place throughout each transaction. She and her staff were always professional. Jean is one of the best realtors that I have worked with ... I wish her territory included Atlanta for any potential home buying for me in the future. Thanks for making it happen for our family.
Bonnie Kincaid, Salisbury NC (seller)
I would like to express what a professional way you handled this whole transaction, but there are no appropriate English words. D'accord, je vais utiliser les bons mots Francais …"extrordinair, mervielous, je ne sais qua autre dir, except, "merci beaucoup"!!!!!
Frederick L Miller - Charlotte NC and Carolina Beach NC (2x seller)
Jean, I must say that you are as thorough a real estate professional as I have met. Your knowledge, follow-up, and professionalism are evident and I want you to know that I recognize and appreciate what you do. I don't always see that in realtors these days.
Mark Lewis, Senior Vice President, Regional Executive, Bank of North Carolina
Jean promised that she would see us from beginning to end of our sale...and she did just that!
Anonymous, Midland NC (sellers)
Personal attention, thorough explanations, quick responses and a long lasting friendship is what you can expect from Jean! She is wonderful.
Melissa Bernard, Indian Trail NC (seller)
This was our first house we have ever sold and it was a great experience! Not only was it fast but we got what we wanted out of the townhouse. Very pleased!
Kevin & Lauren Morris, Charlotte NC (sellers)
Jean went way beyond her duties as a real estate broker. We had problems that had to be dealt with (like repairs) and she found contacts for us. We were out-of-town sellers so she kept us updated on everything and stayed in touch with us continually. She is very professional but has a sweet personality!
Tina Pickard, Salisbury NC (seller)
Outstanding, personable service. Very patient!
Anonymous, Concord NC (buyer)
Jean is a true real estate professional!
Donna McLendon, Charlotte NC (seller)
Jean was attentive to all our needs, handled every part of the sale smoothly, provided updates immediately, and conducted herself with exceptional integrity. Highly Recommended!
Robert Bernard, Indian Trail NC (seller)
Excellent Realtor. Takes a personal interest in your needs and wants. Jean felt like a friend instead of a business person. Best team in North Carolina! I nominate her for 'Realtor of the Year'.
Gerald & Kathie Ingram, Statesville NC (buyers)
Jean and her team were excellent! We truly felt that we were taken care of every step of the way. Real estate transactions can be stressful, we are glad we had a Professional and personable real estate team on our side.
David & Teresa Sanchez, Charlotte NC (sellers)
Jean was a pleasure to work with from initial meeting right through close. She showed us various new builds that helped confirm our desire to be in Huntersville. Ultimate professional – on top of everything and everyone, constantly following up and making certain things stayed on schedule.
Norman & Marcia Goldberg, Huntersville NC (sellers)
Thank you for everything. You've made this whole process much easier on us. We really appreciate your hard work and honesty throughout the process. If we move back your way you'll be the first we call when we're ready to buy again!
Jelani & Erin Greene, Concord NC (sellers)
Jean, we truly appreciate all that you have done for us. I am your “cheerleader” and will always promote you and your team before others.
anonymous, Norwood NC (buyers)
Jean and Team, thank you for taking on this stress; you're the best. Jean's Team is a dedicated group capable of selling any home and helping relocate a family… Jean is always available, has answers that are correct and has the best contacts for all. We have recommended her and the team to several people and will continue to do so. Thanks to all of you! God Bless, The Albers
Duane & Vicky Albers, Harrisburg NC (buyers/sellers)
Jean and her team stand out from any other realty company I've ever dealt with. Jean took so much stress off us, especially after we moved to Georgia. Her knowledge of the area and marketing strategy was on point the entire time our property was on the market. Jean is truly admired and respected by us.
Jackie & Darrel Cantrell, Locust NC (sellers)
Jean was wonderful! Very motivated, enthusiastic, and assertive. We appreciate all she did for us. Our house sold after only a few months on the market, thanks to Jean's confident and outspoken personality!
Mike & Lea Curlee, Stanfield NC (sellers)
Jean was very helpful in explaining the home buying process and helping us find our first home! We appreciate everything she has done for us. She told us the truth no matter what! Jean did an amazing job! We enjoyed working with her!
David & Ashley Shackelford, Concord NC (buyers)
You did an excellent job for me and I feel as if I have found a friend for life!
anonymous, Concord NC (buyers/sellers)
I am 100% silicified and a supporter of Team Griswold. Selling a house in today's market is very stressful especially if you don't have the time to have it sit on the market with over a year of inventory available. If you want to sell your house or buy someone else's home, protect your interests and hire people that are there for you and always watching your back. Not all realtors “work for the client” and to them it's more about sales and money. Jean and her team will guide you on what works best for you, even if it means they make less. Not everyone can say that, and I know it to be true.
Brian Doolittle - 100% Satisfied Client, Charlotte NC (seller)
We could not have asked for better service in selling our home. In a difficult time for selling, Jean managed to sell our home in a very reasonable time frame and at a reasonable selling price. She has a unique blend of professionalism and concern for her client. We were well informed on every step of the process up to and through closing. Couldn't ask for a better realtor in a stressful time. Better than excellent; very professional.
Barry & Pat Dillard, Charlotte NC (sellers)
Jean was a great realtor; she had a way of explaining every process to where anyone could understand. She is down to earth, patient and a great person. Thank you, Jean!
Anonymous, Concord NC (buyers)
Thanks again for everything; you actually feel more like family than our agent (and that's after only weeks of knowing you). You did a fantastic job and were very professional. If we ever have the opportunity to recommend an agent, you'll be it, hands down!
David & Lori Biggers - Concord NC (buyers)
Jean Griswold is a very nice person and cares for her clients. She gives you excellent service whether you are a buyer or seller. I would gladly recommend her to any of my family or friends.
anonymous, Concord NC (buyers/sellers)
I never thought I could find a property with more than an acre and a great house within 10 minutes of downtown Charlotte, and you made the entire process so easy for me. I can't thank you enough!
Robert Walters - Charlotte NC (buyer)
We're planning our move south in the near future. During our drive through your area recently, we contacted you just to see what might be available. You found a terrific place for us (unfortunately, it went under contract the day before), but we know that you will find another. The fact that you are willing to preview properties physically for us and send us pictures and plat information is a tremendous help. We won't do business with anyone else!
Joe & Teresa Lagosz, moving south from Connecticut (buyers)
Thanks for helping our daughter and grandchildren through a difficult situation; your patience and understanding made such a difference to all of us! She and the kids love the house and the neighborhood, and you figured out a way to get her financing when we had been told the situation was impossible. We couldn't have done it without you!"
Ed and Edith Nash - Charlotte NC (buyers)
I was a first time home buyer and knew nothing about the process. Jean went out of her way to help me understand everything that was going on. I had pretty high standards on what I needed in a place, and she took what I needed and fit me right into the perfect house and land. Now my family is happily living in our new house with the chickens soon to be joining us! If I ever had to do this again, I would want Jean right by my side!
Dori Pherigo-Davis - Mt Pleasant NC (buyer)
I'm a widow and wanted to move back home to NC to be close to my children. You spent months taking my daughters around to look at houses, but they never could find what I thought I wanted. When I came down in March, you and I spent just a couple of days together – you really listened to what I said - and you found exactly what I wanted! I love my house out in the country, and you need to come out and pick all the figs and blackberries you and your granddaughters want!
Hilda Rountree - Locust NC (buyer)
Thanks for helping me understand the school system here and for making sure that the houses I looked at were in neighborhoods that provided exactly what I needed. You're great!
Becky Lawing - Concord, NC (buyer)
Jean's team was there for us at EVERY turn, making a long distance house sale much easier!
