Testimonials for Jack Lara
Jack did a great job in finding me a home in the Pensacola area. He quickly learned the type of home I was
looking for and was very patient as he helped me find my new home. He worked hard and answered any and
all questions I had. I would work with Jack again and would recommend him to others.
Our house was a tough sale. We considered 4 other realtors before selecting Jack. This was a high stress situation for us as we do not live in Pensacola and needed to sell this house. Jack made this easy for us and went up and beyond our expectations. He is low keyed but definitely an experienced and extremely helpful realtor. Would hire him again without any hesitations.

Jack is the best real estate agent I have ever had the pleasure to work with. He took on a very difficult short sale that most other agents would not even consider and then was diligent and professional. Most importantly, he was successful. When challenges popped up, he overcame them. If I ever do another real estate deal in Pensacola, Jack will certainly be the first person I call. I have worked with many so-called real estate professionals that are more of a liability in getting a transaction complete than an asset. They have to be babysat throughout the deal. I would trust Jack to handle every aspect from start to finish and to have my best interests covered every step of the way. This is your guy.

From the first time that Jack walked into our home, he did everything right on. Our home sold the first day to the first person that viewed our home. There were a few hiccups but Jack met them head on and resolved everyone of them, 98% without needing anything from us...His kindness, his genuine concern, his personable manner distributed every asset to ease the process for us. Once the house went on the market, there were as many as 4 -5 families a day that came through to see the house, until the buyer actually presented his contract. Jack kept us informed of every perspective buyer who was coming to view the property. His humor carried us through as well. WE have nothing but praise for Jack and his ability to close a sell quickly and successfully. We highly recommend Jack as you will not be disappointed.
Jack helped me sell my home and purchase a new home. I would highly recommend him. He is very knowledgeable of the real estate market. He was very supportive through the process of the sell and purchase of my homes.
Great realtor! He keeps you informed throughout entire by letting you know where things are with lenders and 3rd parties. I've worked with Jack on a sale and purchase and I will continue to work with him in the future. Great Guy! #TeamJack :)

Jack did a wonderful job assisting our family with the purchase of several homes over the past few years. This purchase in particular went very smooth and Jack did his utmost to make sure our interests were protected throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Jack.
I am a real estate investor and I constantly work with Mr. Lara buying and selling properties. Mr. Lara is very knowledgeable and experienced working with short sales, foreclosure and in determining value of properties. He is very thorough in determining the value of a property and whether or not there are other factors that affect the property.
Mr. Lara also helped my daughter buy her first home and was extremely thorough in explaining the process and making sure she understood everything.
