Due to her innate capacity for organisation and effective communication, the experience of marketing your property with Jess means, “everything flows with ease” and “communication is a breeze”, as some of her clients say.

Jess takes pride in supporting her clients throughout the entire process. “I’m fully engaged from preparation to going out and finding the buyer. I don’t give up if it gets tough, if there’s an offer out there, I’ll find it.”

She has a vast professional and personal network in Whangarei, with her vital connections originating from her 15 years of sales and marketing experience working in Whangarei’s small business community.

"The Home is often very close to the heart and I understand the connection my clients have with their properties. In most cases, they are parting with a home with fond memories and unforgettable experiences and generally have sacrificed long hours renovating or adding valued improvements. Being a family of four in our own home, and living locally most of my life I understand this connection."

Jess was really great with very helpful advice when I had to sell Mum's house. Eventually I went with a no reserve auction that happened when Auckland was in level 3 lockdown.
I was kept up to date before and during the auction. After sale service was excellent also

Near the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021 I had the pleasure of selling my Onerahi townhouse in Whangarei with Jess Barnes from One Agency Whangarei as my real estate agent.
Why did I choose Jess at One Agency as my real estate agent?
Jess sold my neighbour’s property and they spoke very highly of her. After meeting her, Jess had the sale in motion immediately with an appraisal of my property within days along my line of thinking.
I had great support and feedback from her as I spent three weeks getting the property ready for sale, while she organized the sale with a photoshoot, furniture staging, open days and drumming up interest for the sale.
Thanks to Jess I accepted an offer from the first open home viewing.
Unfortunately, the sale collapsed but Jess had another offer the same day which I accepted and all went well.
During the sale I had an unexpected issue with the property but Jess was there with her support and advice, explaining to the buyers. Not an easy and straight forward sale for us, but she managed remarkably.
Jess was my rock during the sale and I can not speak highly enough about her support, understanding, professionalism, friendliness and constant updates on the sale.
Also thank you to the team at One Agency for their help.
Thank you so much Jess, it was a pleasure to have you sell my property.
I wish you all the best for the future and I highly recommend you to any real estate buyer or seller
Thank you again

We were in the market to purchase a rental property and ran in to Jess at one of her open homes. After viewing a few other open homes we were shocked at the difference between her excellent service and other agents who didn't seem to care about what we were looking for. Soon after meeting Jess, she offered us a place which we ended up buying. The settlement process was smooth and hassle free which was amazing given this was happening towards the end of December. Thank you Jess and we will be back to see you when we are ready for our next property.

Jess was a real asset when we were selling. We'd needed to relocate and it was daunting knowing that we would not be present to oversee the sale, but Jess put us at ease. She communicated regularly and ensured our house was tidy and well-presented in our absence. She really went the extra mile to help our house sell. Our house sold quickly, for a good price. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jess to potential vendors.

My back to basics
Drove north to have look at what maybe forsale in northland. Had few boxes wanted tick off. Met Jess and she took me to this property for a look. TBH we hadnt even got out off the car n I knew this was it. Jess was great and had all the answers, it was so reassuring. Made an offer and we signed a contract same evening. With covid lockdown in Auckland Jess contacted the owners to see if I could go up prior to owning which was much appreciated. The settlement was smooth and now have my own little piece off paradise to enjoy
Thanks Jess for everything

Was a pleasure dealing with Jessica with the sale of our property.

We faced many challenges with stage 4 lockdown being the main one which she dealt with very professionally.

We didn't expect it to sell as quick as it did which is a credit to her.

Highly recommend her services.



I cannot talk highly enough about Jess' efforts to sell my house. She had a clear strategy from the get go, which was bang on. She has boundless energy and exceeded my expectations by a country mile. Nothing was too much trouble for her. And when it got to the negotiating stage she navigated it brilliantly. If you want to sell your house contact Jess.



First I would like to thank Jess for all of her help and expertise in selling my dads house during difficult times, Jess new right marketing approach to get the house sold in quick and timely manner with good financial result, I have no hesitation in recommending Jess Barnes for any person requiring a great Real Estate agent to market your property.

Thanks Jess, you made the whole process very easy. Even though we were in the middle of lockdown it all went smoothly.
I'm very happy to recommend you as a real estate agent.
Once again thanks so much for your professionalism.

Nothing was a problem. The day I contacted Jess about the house, that evening we were visiting it, and I was sold on it from that first visit.
Nothing was a problem and the sale process just flowed with ease.
Thanks very much for the ease of buying a house.



Jess is a very professional real estate agent, she has a lovely warm friendly manner and she was a pleasure to work with. When we wanted more information about the property we were purchasing she came back to us with the answers very quickly, nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend seeing Jess if you are looking at buying real estate. Thanks Jess

Thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Jess during the process of selling my home. I was impressed and grateful for the marketing ideas and implementation which resulted in the sale. Jess is a very enthusiastic and professional salesperson and I thank her for all her work and patience with me in selling my property.



Jess was great, very knowledgeable of the current market and great ideas on what we should do to make our house ready to sell. She had our house under contract within 2 weeks. When and if we ever want to sell our new property we will definitely be getting in contact with Jess again.



We would like to express our appreciation for all the work Jess has done in selling our home, she has been very professional and helpful in all our dealings with her, we have no hesitation in recommending listing your home with Jess.

We chose Jess after having a great experience with her helping us sign up our house as a rental. A little while later we decided to sell and have just completed the process today. We are so happy with how everything went. Jess really knows the local market and had great advice about marketing. We had interested buyers within days and got the price we wanted from the sale. Don't hesitate to get in touch with her if you are looking for someone to help with the sale or purchase of a home. You won't be disappointed. Thanks again Jess, you're amazing!



Jessica was so helpful. Giving us good ideas on what to do to our home to make it ready to sell. She gave us a good range of marketing options to choose from that would appeal to the current market. Very happy client. Thank you
