Our listing agreement was signed on August 24, 2016, and our ranch was listed on MLS on August 29, 2016.
Tom Callan and Jenna Hawkins were quick to use a drone, with earlier aircraft aerials, to produce a complete picture of our ranch. As well, they insisted on riding our fence lines, pasture roads and trails to locate our tanks and pretty spots, so they knew our ranch as well as we did after owning it for 35 years.
On the houses, barn and other facilities, an expert photographer took very thorough pictures. The pictures and property information were professionally presented on a website created specifically for our property, providing extensive detail for prospective buyers.
After the fifth showing of our property on October 13, 2016, negotiations began which were finalized with a sales contract on October 21 and a closing on November 30.
Both Tom Callan and Jenna Hawkins are involved in agriculture and have been for years, and they know the issues of recreational properties as well. They are professional, personable, likeable and a pleasure to do business with.
As well as selling our ranch, Jenna and her daughter and associate, Haley Lopez, also assisted us with finding and purchasing our new home in Graham, Texas. Fine people, excellent performance all around. They are highly recommended.

“Hi Jenna, Just wanted to thank you for all your help in finding us our land. We have been looking for about a year or two and the other realtors that we talked with never followed up with us. Then I found your website and was very pleased. You understood what we were looking for and kept in contact with us on properties when other realtors did not. You gave me other tools to look for property that also helped us make our decision. You found us a beautiful piece of property, and I will recommend you to anyone I know that is looking for property in your area.”
—Debbie and Buck
“My wife and I are excited to share our experience with our real estate agent, Tom Callan. We had been searching for our ‘dream property’ in the northwest Texas region, having looked at many places with several agents, but nothing really clicked. We met Tom as a result of our internet search after we had been looking for a while. Though the initial property he showed us didn’t match our criteria, at that meeting he spent a great deal of time with us, listening patiently to our vision. As a result, thanks to Tom, we were able to find exactly what we were looking for in an area we wouldn’t have considered. He asked the right questions, listened intently and put in the time to make us completely satisfied ranch owners. We couldn’t be more thankful and proud of our association and friendship with Tom Callan!”
—Greg & Anneta Buenger
“Jenna Hawkins and RE/MAX were highly recommended by several close friends that had previously used their services in Graham and Possum Kingdom. Based on those referrals, we selected Jenna to represent us in the sale of our home and the purchase of a new one. We couldn’t be happier with the results.
Jenna’s experience in real estate was evident from our first meeting. She took time to review comparable properties to determine the right asking price, provided tips to ensure our home ‘showed well’ for potential buyers, explained her plans for marketing our property and quickly had it listed on the MLS. To our surprise, we had two full asking price offers within days, one of whom was a cash buyer!
The purchase of our new home was a bit more challenging. Jenna helped us find an ideal property, but it was part of an estate and the asking price was higher than we anticipated. With her help, we negotiated agreeable terms with the seller and purchased our dream home. Jenna was with us every step of the way, even working nights and weekends to help close the deal. We couldn’t have done it without her.
We will continue to call Jenna for all of our future real estate needs, and we strongly encourage our friends and family in the area to do the same.

—Bonnie Gilliam, Graham TX
“Jenna has represented our family w/ 2 major real estate transactions w/in the past 9 months, both as seller & buyer. In each instance Jenna gave us totally professional care from initial contact through closing. Her knowledge of real estate dealings kept us aware of our position at all intervals during the process. For us, Jenna is the consummate real estate agent.”

"Jenna, I just wanted to say thank you again for your help in locating and assisting in the purchase of our property recently. I especially want to thank you for your patience, perseverance and honest opinions over the last three years. I know you went out of your way to show us some of the properties we looked at. I also want to thank you for your offer to help us locate people in the area that can assist us in doing some of the things we want to do with the property.
Feel assured that I will not hesitate in recommending you to anyone that might ask about realtor services for that area nor will I hesitate to contact you should I need your assistance in acquiring additional property or selling any property."
—Doug Shelton, Midland TX
"Jenna, Diana and I want to take a moment to say thanks for all you have done for us. We absolutely love our new place. With your help, the purchase process went without a hitch and was a truly enjoyable experience. And we are also very grateful to you for handling the sale of our former property. From listing to close, that was the quickest we have ever made a sale! We believe the listing you created was instrumental in attracting the surprisingly high level of activity the property received in a relatively flooded market. Your skills and talents certainly paid off for us. I will recommend you and your agency to anyone looking to buy or sell a country property. Again, thank you so much.

Land on Finis Rd, Graham TX
"I would highly recommend Jenna Hawkins if you are looking to buy or sell in the Graham area. My husband and I started our search over a year ago, not knowing exactly what we wanted or where we wanted to be. Jenna patiently worked with us, showing us numerous properties. Jenna had always done her homework on each property and was quick to make a phone call to the land owner to get our questions answered immediately. She is educated on oil and gas/leasing/drilling/right-of-way etc. We also appreciated that she was comfortable cold calling on properties that were not even on the market. We are very thankful for Jenna's help in finding our dream property!"

"Dear Jenna, Kirk & I just wanted to thank you for all your work in helping us achieve the dream of becoming landowners. As you know, we've pondered over different properties for years, but nothing seemed to fit. Thank goodness you didn't let this one get away from us! We were fortunate you took charge. Thank you for your thoughtfulness throughout the process. it was a real pleasure."
—Brenda Gaton, Graham TX
"When my wife and I decided to sell our home we thought we would try and sell it our self. We decided to have an open house and to promote our home my wife took flyers to all the local real estate agents offices. The only realtor that attended our open house was Jenna Hawkins. We met Jenna and decided to list our home with her. It was the best decision we could have made. Jenna wasted no time finding us a buyer. I was amazed at Jennaâ€™s dedication toward us and the sale of our home. Jenna was very professional and handled the obstacles we encountered with efficiency and a determined attitude. I appreciate Jenna so much. You will not find a harder working agent in the area."

"I am writing to give Jenna Hawkins my highest recommendation. Jenna helped us in purchasing our home in Graham over the summer. We were in the process of relocating from Alabama, and conducting business long distance could have been scary and laborious. Not with Jenna representing us. She made herself available to help us throughout the entire process. I can't begin to list everything that she did along the way. From scheduling a viewing with 30 minutes notice, to lining up some workers to help us put up a fence for our horses, Jenna was always able to make things happen. Her knowledge of horses and horse properties was particularly useful in our situation. Jenna worked seamlessly with the corporate relocation company that was orchestrating all aspects of our move. She assisted us in maneuvering the extra requirements of a VA loan. She even helped us find medical care for my father, who became ill while helping us move.
Throughout this process, we dealt with professionals from the global relocation company, the national moving company, and a national mortgage lender. I can say, without hesitation that no one else, throughout the entire process, was more dependable and efficient than Jenna. If you want to work with a realtor who makes things happen, you can't go wrong with Jenna."

"I would recommend Jenna Hawkins as my realtor of choice to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. She is very professional, and has a great instinct and aggressiveness that is hard to find in any REALTOR®.
I have worked with many REALTORS®, and feel that she is as good as they get. She sold my ranch in a very short amount of time, and has made me a very happy person!
Please keep Jenna on your team, she is a real asset!"

"Dear Keith and Vee, As you know, we met Jenna Hawkins and have been working with her for the past month or so in purchasing one of her listings near Graham.
It has been a pleasure getting to know Jenna and dealing with her. From the first showing, she has been understanding of our needs and goals on both a personal and professional level. While she always kept her sellers' interest first, she has been accommodating and responsive to the many, many questions we've asked. Jenna has been very helpful in orchestrating a variety of logistics, including the inspection, the survey, title work and referrals to local legal and lending contacts. In addition, she has managed the process of correcting and recording the access easement to help out her sellers and her buyers but also the adjacent property owners affected also.
Because of her competence, we are confident that all the final details will be completed successfully so that we can close on schedule. If the opportunity came up in the future, we would be delighted to have the opportunity to work with Jenna again.
Please feel free to contact us if we can provide any more information."
—Tish and Ron Witten, Dallas TX
"Through the years, my husband and I have made a fair number of real estate transactions, with Wayne being the one handling most, if not all of the details on these.
In the spring of this year, I decided to sell a piece of property in Graham. With the property housing a personal hobby of mine, I was to handle most of the sale details and decisions.
We have a number of friends who are seasoned real estate brokers in Graham. Personally , I do not believe simply because someone is a friend means they will represent you well as a real estate broker.
For several reasons, I desired and did list my property with my friend, Jenna Hawkins. I have no regrets with that decision. Jenna is a very honest and morally sound person. The pride she takes in her work is evident with the care she takes in property research, client communication, and administrative organization.
In my opinion, the combination of her personal integrity plus business sense of her chosen field makes her a very valuable asset to her clients and those she is employed by."

Young County Acreage
"We had been unsuccessfully looking for acreage close to the Metroplex for several years when I came across a property listed by Jenna Hawkins. I called Jenna, told her what I was looking for, and she quickly had a couple places to show. Obviously she understood what we wanted, as we bought the first one she showed us. Not only did Jenna find us the
right property, her advice after the sale was invaluable! I can still call Jenna today for any real estate related questions, and would certainly go to her if we were in the market for another purchase."

House in Graham
"In June of this year I thought I was never going to find a home in the time I had to locate one. I had sold my property in another county and had 45 days to find another residence and move.
Jenna Hawkins came to my rescue, helping me find a new home, and even helping me find short term financing so I could close more quickly. Without Jenna's knowledge of real estate available in the area, her ability to organize every phase of this process, and her tireless energy, I would have been in big trouble.
I can never thank her enough for her hard work, her kindness and her ability to handle anything that came up.
Thanks Jenna for turning a near disaster into a positive experience."
—Tommy Dye, Graham TX

"Hi Jenna, Thanks for finding us the perfect property. We liked learning about the great little town of Graham. We enjoyed working with you and all the nice folks that we met while there. Thanks too for the referals, we have been pleased with the service companys and individuals that you recommended. We want you to know that we also appreciate the professionalism that made our closing go so smoothly. Thanks again."

Property on Brazos River
"I have played in the Graham area for the last 30 years. Really loving this area, I had looked for property in the North Texas area for quite some time hoping to find acreage on the Brazos River or comparable hunting/ranching land close to Graham but was unsuccessful until recently. Back in late January I contacted Jenna Hawkins who was referred to me by a local resort 'The Wildcatter.' I met with Jenna and ask her to find this type of place for me within 15 or 20 miles from Graham. She put a package of properties together for me and after two visits with her in Graham, I will close on what I think is the best deal for me March 13th. Jenna knows this business. She's organized, diligent (not pushy) and pleasure to work with. Prior to Jenna, I had tried another agent but with no results. You know when you have the right person and when I met her I knew. I will continue to use her in the future as the need arises and would not hesitate to refer Jenna to anyone looking for their dream."
—Mark Thomas, Midland TX
"Jenna recently sold a rather large parcel of land for me and as a result I highly recommend her services as a realtor. I had this land with another realtor for over one year with only one bid. Jenna was able to sell this land for me at a good price within two months. As a result of my experience with Jenna, I will only use her for future purchases or sales. I highly recommend her."
—Carey Petus, Graham TX
House in Graham
"When we were looking to move from Oklahoma to Graham in 2007, I called to inquire about a house with a "for sale" sign in the yard. Jenna, the listing agent, returned our call in minutes. While we had never met her before, Jenna's friendly nature made me feel as if I were talking to a long lost friend.
She patiently answered my many questions about the house and about Graham. I was impressed by her warm tone and professional assertiveness when she very directly asked, without pressuring, for the chance to serve us . We said "yes" and our house search kicked into full gear.
Finding a neighborhood that felt comfortable was high on our list of priorities, and Jenna's knowledge of the area was phenomenal. During a time when very few houses were on the market, I'm pleased to say Jenna helped us quickly find a house that fit our needs perfectly.
Her patience, listening skills and knowledge of the area some of her best assets!"
—Michele Newhouse, Graham TX
