Jacquelyn Swint has practiced real estate for the past 9 years and a member of GaREIA for 7 years. She attended a “free” seminar which was anything but “free.” That seminar ended up costing $12,000 in which she split with another woman who was a complete stranger. Ms. Swint was so intrigued that soon after the that she became a seminar junkie and went to every real estate seminar she could find. Can you relate? This was the start of the real estate crash at the end of 2008 and people thought that she was crazy getting into the business at that time.
Nevertheless, Jacquelyn was so excited that she learned how she could start with very little cash or credit and start out as a real estate wholesaler. Jacquelyn started out finding vacant property and absentee owners. One of the most important things that she learned was how to put a property under contract for $1 and/or $10 and then assign that contract (assignment of contract) for a fee. This process seemed very easy however; it would take Jacquelyn 14 months before she would get her first deal. Ms. Swint reminded herself of one of Winston Churchill’s quotes which was to “never, never, never give up.” Jacquelyn says that she will NEVER forget her first deal. It was tax day (April 15, 2015) and her check was for $8000. Jacquelyn was so excited and proved to herself that she could do it! Jacquelyn shared this newfound knowledge with her son and now he is into commercial real estate, multi-family, apartments,
Jacquelyn makes it her business to know the who, what , where, when, why, and how of real estate. She is very business savvy and makes it a point to stay up to date with what is going on in the local communities. After many successes and failures in wholesaling, Jacquelyn furthered her real estate education and expertise. She studied at the Georgia Institute of Real Estate, (GIRE) and is now a licensed real estate agent in the State of Georgia. Whether you are a first-time home-buyer, or a seasoned real estate investor, Ms. Swint is confident that she can help locate the property just for “YOU”. Ms. Swint is familiar with several creative financing techniques and strategies and has built a team of other real estate professionals who can help you find, fund, fix, or flip and get the deal done! Jacquelyn considers herself an “investor-friendly REALTOR®. She has assisted real estate investors, as proxy, by helping them acquire over $1.2M in foreclosed property at several courthouse steps in Georgia.
Additionally, Ms. Swint volunteers her time with the Atlanta Women’s Build (AWB) encourages the involvement of women in the construction of Habitat homes. This ALL female crew helps build a house, has fundraising projects, and raises awareness in the community. At the same time, they seek to empower women and create a non-threatening and fun environment to meet others in the community.
Jacquelyn is an alumnus of Walden University, where she received her MBA degree in Dallas, TX and a BS Degree in Healthcare Administration from St. Leo College in St. Leo Florida. Ms. Swint resides in the Metro Atlanta area.
