Jacqueline & Paul Morris Opening
Doors In Wellington Since 1998
Realtors Jacqueline and Paul Morris are the owners/brokers of Gracious Homes Realty, a company they founded in 2009 to serve the residential needs of Wellington area real-estate buyers and sellers. With seven agents, this boutique company’s particular focus is on gated communities including Olympia, Versailles, Village Walk, Wellington’s Edge and more.
They offer “distinctive marketing of fine homes” — which serves as both a motto and a philosophy. Jacqueline and Paul work hand-in-hand with each homeowner, devoting additional time and energy to the marketing effort.
“We hire professional photographers for photo shoots and video tours,” Paul explained. “We invest in the process.”
“It’s a team effort with the homeowner,” Jacqueline added. “It’s more than money. We get our sellers involved with things like staging. This approach has been successful.
” Post-boom and through the recent real-estate doldrums, Paul and Jacqueline have delivered the highest sales records in a number of local neighborhoods. “We brought in the highest sale price in all of Olympia in the past 16 months,” Paul noted.
“And that includes builders’ sales,” added Jacqueline, who got her realestate license in 1996, began selling in 1998 and was immediately so busy that she asked Paul to leave his job in computers and join her. Since October 1998, the couple has sold more than 500 homes.
“We do not specialize in distressed property sales,” Jacqueline said. “We’re doing conventional real estate for people who are downsizing, upsizing, relocating or are first-time home buyers — the normal stuff. A lot of our sellers and buyers appreciate that.”
They are responsible for the four highest recorded sales in Madison Green since August 2010. “Three were our listings; one was our buyer,” Paul explained.“We love Wellington,” said Jacqueline. Paul & Jacqueline moved to Wellington in 1996 and moved the family to Olympia in 2003, the first day the community opened. “We have four children so we appreciate that the schools are A-rated.”
We like that our children are able to get involved and give back. My daughter and son just participated with the Wellington Garden Club, planting flowers in front of some of the homes. I was happy that our children knew the importance of curb appeal!”
The goal is to provide clients with the highest level of customer service and professional standards.
“If you are someone who is looking to sell your home, we want to make sure that your home is given all of the attention it needs to be promoted for the highest value possible,” Jacqueline and Paul said. “We have developed an advanced marketing plan with proven results that will put your home above the competition.”
The goal is similar for home buyers. “Simply put, we put our clients’ best interest above our own and strive to create lasting relationships,” Jacqueline and Paul concluded.
