“We just sold our 2BR condominium at Fifth and Poplar – our beloved home for the last 19 years. Obviously we needed the “kid glove” treatment for such an emotional endeavor, and Jenny Hodges (Yancey Realty) delivered in spades.
We asked Jenny to list our place because she has been a fellow 5&P owner over many of those same years. Consequently, she has a personal and intimate understanding of the community, the property and condo association policies better than most/any other agents…better than many board members, even.
She was in it for us from the beginning, always very prompt at responding to emails, calls, or texts. We listed our house at her recommended price and had four offers OVER asking price the very first day!
Her keen sense of timing and feel for the market kept us motivated, yet never rushed…we were made to feel comfortable right through closing. Her excellent interpersonal skills repeatedly assured us- she listens intently, keeps detailed notes and remains engaged. The deal felt more like a partnership than a pure seller/agent agreement.
Jenny’s expert guidance made the process easily understood for us.
Her collegial relationships with local agents/attorneys smooths and streamlines the legal processes- most of our questions were resolved almost instantly.
She impressed with her calm professionalism as well as her negotiating skills when working with other agents. Overall, our experience working with Jenny was simply terrific. We would definitely work with her again and highly recommend her services to any prospective buyers/sellers.”

“Jenny Hodges is an amazing Realtor®! My husband and I have known for a year that we wanted to live at Fifth & Poplar condominiums, but were not having any luck in this tough buyer’s market!
Once we connected to Jenny, everything got easier. She set us up to get notifications the minute something went on the market. She also kept in touch regularly, which assured us she had not forgotten.
When we found the unit we wanted, she helped us make an immediate, attractive and successful offer. But that wasn’t even the best part! She had us set up with an inspection and a closing attorney within 24 hours, and then actually made inquiries on our behalf for some repairs that needed to be made.
Jenny is also an owner at Fifth & Poplar, and thus is totally familiar with the property and the management team – making everything easier for us as we moved in. She is amazing and we highly recommend her services!”

“We worked with Jennifer Hodges on the purchase and sale of our condo at Fifth & Poplar, and she did an amazing job! Sold our condo in 13 days on the market! She is a complete professional, and nobody know the Fifth & Poplar market better than Jennifer. Her insights are invaluable for anyone contemplating a purchase or sale of their unit. Just a wonderful overall experience, and we can’t recommend her more highly! Thank you!”

“Jenny Hodges is by far the best realtor we have ever worked with. Her professionalism and positivity are outstanding! After going through several realtors, Jenny got our condo sold at Fifth and Poplar. During the process, she kept us informed about the market at Fifth and Poplar, and helped us with recommendations. Her knowledge about the building is impressive — she knows the staff, is familiar with the cost of repairs, has handymen available if needed, and was present when necessary. Due to the fact that we were out of state, she and her team handled every aspect of the sale! Thank you Jenny! We highly recommend you!”
—- Eike von dem Bussche & Noel Smith / Unit 614
“Jenny Hodges is a true professional that walked me through every step of the closing process. I was very pleased with how she presented the property. Her organizational skills got us through a tight 20 day closing. I would highly recommend Jenny to anyone thinking of buying or selling.”

“Anne and I would like to thank you for advising us, and being our real estate agent, for the sale of our 5th and Poplar, Charlotte Uptown, condo. Your local knowledge was invaluable. You really helped us a lot when it came to staging the unit and navigating sale price negotiations. Wishing you continued success.”

“Jenny is an incredible real estate agent and was a pleasure to work with as my listing agent for my 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo in the Fifth & Popular building. I believe she is the go to agent for Fifth & Poplar as a prior resident and current unit owner who has many years of sales under her belt. Given I was selling my unit while living out of state, Jenny handled EVERYTHING for me, from staging, creating marketing materials, sourcing and dealing with contractors to give the unit a fresh coat of paint, new carpeting, as well as repairs. She handled it all and made the process a breeze from end to end. Her advice and knowledge of the building made our agreed upon pricing and listing strategy ultimately very successfully as the unit was sold at full asking price and went under contract within a month. I did not even attend the closing, Jenny was acting on my behalf every step of the way and did a wonderful job! I would recommend her to anyone considering buying or selling in the Charlotte Metro area and particularly in Fifth & Poplar”

“Jenny is an awesome realtor and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell quickly. Jenny helped me prep, list and complete the sell of my 5th and Poplar condo within 60 days! To add to that quick sell, we were also able to get “full price” of the original listing. She gives great advice, works quickly, takes care of everything, and is a joy to work with! Let her sell your home and you will see what I mean.”
