It is often the little things that make such a huge difference in your financial picture. Make 2014 the year to implement this simple strategy to pay off your 30 year mortgage in almost half the time! Homeowners can actually pay off their 30 year mortgage in approximately 17 years by simply making one additional payment per year. It is important to clearly notify the lender that the additional payment is to be applied to the principal balance as opposed to simply sending in an extra payment without clear instructions. This strategy allows homeowners to accomplish nearly the same result as refinancing to a 15 year mortgage. Don’t wait! Make 2014 the year to integrate this small change into your financial plan.

September 2014 I have used Pam Jacobs in several Real Estate transactions and have achieved successful results from her and her Team. I would highly recommend Pam to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate.

The Jacobs Group has exceeded every expectation we had at the time we engaged them to sell our home. A seasoned, experienced and professional team working on your behalf is a must during all phases of home selling and buying. There are far more details and nuances involved than anyone might imagine. To have Pam Jacobs and her team represent us made our experience not only manageable but profitable as well. Pam Jacobs and The Jacobs Group:

May 2014 My husband and I first met Pam in 2008 regarding the sale of our home, which had been on the market for over a year. We signed on with Pam and followed her advice about staging the home. Not only were we pleased that the house sold in a few days, we were very impressed by Pam’s knowledge of the market and prospective buyers. When it came time to look for a realtor to help my parents relocate closer to my siblings and me, I immediately thought of Pam. Pam understood the dynamics …

Where do I start?!Well my lifelong dream of having the horses in my backyard is finally a reality because of Pam’s hardworking, dedicated, caring, knowledgeable, talented personality. She truly is the best, and she never gave up on me, my kids and my dream! Not only did she sell my home, she took me to see EVERY piece of horse property in Barrington until I found the perfect farm, my Forever Farm! Pam and Chuck are a great team and are perfectionists! When I started the journey…

October 2014 Pam is an excellent realtor. She is extremely knowledgeable on the various Chicago suburbs and the school districts within them. She took the time to learn our home necessities and then ruled out those that did not meet our expectations. When we found a home we wanted to see, Pam scheduled a showing that same day. Although Pam helped us find our home, she will be our realtor for our next home!

September 2014 The Jacobs team is exceptionally professional and well informed on the market dynamics of the Barrington area. They helped us get an offer, negotiated to an agreeable price, and then saw the whole thing through to closing. In our case it happened very quickly.

April, 2014 The entire team works flawlessly to achieve success for you while you’re trying to sell a house. Communication is the name of the game with them. Negotiations are professional and honest. Marketing is creative and makes you want to buy your own house. I don’t think my appraisal would have come in at plan without Pam’s detailed documentation. Tracy sits in the background coordinating all the activities. I would highly recommend them to everyone if you want to be successful …

January, 2014 Pam and her group are amazing! She walked us through each step of the home buying process, was extremely attentive to our needs, and helped us a find a great home in a short period of time. Her network and references have all been wonderful to work with and responsive as well. I can’t recommend her highly enough and feel very fortunate to have had her as our realtor.

September, 2013 Pam and Chuck Jacobs are truly a great real estate team. Chuck is the” behind the scenes” technical half making one’s property look amazing and ensuring that the Jacob’s Group is on top of the latest in technology, marketing and all things dealing with the computer aspects of real estate. Pam is the vivacious “ball of fire” who is constantly networking with her clients and in the community to help families sell their homes and or find new homes that fit their specific needs.…
Nancy Marks, Barrington
October 2014 Pam Jacobs is absolutely the best realtor anyone could ask for. The same applies to her team. Because of Pam’s expertise and professionalism, our house sold quickly and at a price with which we were very satisfied. The entire process…from start to finish…was such a positive experience. Too, Pam’s personal character added so much to our enjoyment of her being our realtor. She is an exceptional person and professional.
