June 1, 2019 "I wish all real estate people were as competent and personable as Jack Lara"
Daniel Mack, Cantonment
May 21, 2019 "Jack was absolutely EXCELLENT. We had never worked with a realtor before and he was so patient & kind -
always explaining and answering our questions. He was very available and willing to work with us on nights
and weekends. Would gladly recommend Jack to any friends and family." Valerie V.
September 10, 2018 "Jack was recommended by a friend. He helped guide me through the process of selling my brothers house after he passed. I was in another state and Jack walked me through the entire process. He was a knight in shining armor when he investigated an incident for me. Oh! He also got me an offer the first day the house was on the market. We were closed in barely over a month and could not be happier. Thank you Jack!!"

Jack Lara has been my real estate agent for nearly 20 years. In that time, I have come to know him as a sincere and caring person. He is willing to go to great lengths to look out for my best interests as well as those that I have referred to him. He has helped my family, friends, old time high school friends, neighbors and sometimes even mere acquaintances achieve their goals. Jack has helped me turn a profit on my real estate investments and just as important has advised me what not to purchase. I have lost count of how many times he has helped me. If I had to guess it would be 20+ times. And the number of times I have referred him has to be at least several dozen times. Recently he helped my best friend from high school prepare her condo to sell prior to her passing. The amount of sincere compassion is a rare quality and I look forward to working with Jack again and again along with continuing to refer this good man! - Vicki Hutto
August 13, 2018 We cant thank Jack enough for getting us through the sale of this property. Always great advice, wheather or not we wanted to follow it. We did, and got a better outcome than anticipated.
Jack, is a short sale expert, we must say! - Istvan and Jennell P.

I had never been a fan of open houses, but Jack's strategy with the open house got us several offers within 24 hours of listing the property/holding the open house. Well done. Jack is an all around great guy that is easy to work with. I highly recommend him to anyone that wants a professional realtor and a smooth transaction.

Jack Lara took what seemed to be an impossible situation and made things work. Jack never once treated
me in any way other than with complete respect and professionalism. He is a realtor that will work harder
than expected on a short sale to get everything squared away. He is in constant communication with all
parties involved and doesn't miss a beat. I would highly recommend Jack Lara to anyone looking to have a
successful sale on their home.

Jack is a real "go-getter"! His tenacity is amazing and he works hard to sell the property quickly and efficiently. I'm very impressed with him and will surely use him if there's a need in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Pensacola, FL.
Jack Lara helped immensely in my husband and I buying our first house. He laid
out everything for me: processes, paperwork, timeline, closing procedures,
closing costs, everything. I asked him for advice on a few things, and he was
able to give me some where I needed it most. He pulled up some examples of
inspection forms and told me what to look for and let me decide which company
to go with by providing options totally without bias. He ordered the inspections I
decided on and let me know who to pay and when and for what. He also
negotiated with the sellers for us and presented offers which have been good
ones in past sales for all parties. He drew up an easily amendable, thorough
contract quickly and explained anything we had questions about. He also
offered to show us houses like the one we were looking at, showed us one and
let us walk through it, discussing high and low points and let us know what we
could probably expect on our property appraisal. Jack helped my parents find a
house when they moved to Pensacola, so they recommended him to me and my
husband. Jack was indispensable in our house search and home buying process.
I would recommend him to anyone, especially first-time home buyers.

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.
Jack is an outstanding realtor. He knows the market and will give you an honest
assessment of you property. Jack work very hard marketing and setting the
right price points that sell my house. Great Agent!

Jack continued to keep me up to date during my sell from beginning to finish. He made what can normally be
a stressful time go timely and without any unsolvable problems. Whenever any problem came up his
knowledge enabled him to handle it in an expedient and professional manner.

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $100,000 in Pensacola, FL.
Wonderful. Kept me informed of everything going on with sale and staging. He was my agent when I first purchased this house and again when I sold it. I look forward to working with him again in the future. I won't use anyone else.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Pensacola, FL.
Jack is a very professional individual with 17 years of Real Estate experience that showed in the way he handled the sale of my property. He stayed in constant contact with me regarding when the house would be shown and then found a possible buyer. When the buyer was approved for the sale, Jack again kept me up to date on where the bank was in their decision-making process which consisted over several months. Thank you, Jack, for a job well done!!

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.

Jack worked his tail off to get the sale closed when there were changes made in the buyers financing. There were many hoops to jump through for this sale and it was done with the help of Jack being persistent and staying on top of everything. The house sold in less than two weeks. Amazing, and he could have sold it several times over. Thank You, Jack Lara We truly appreciate all of your hard and long hours worked.

Jack Lara was amazing. He kept us in the loop and went above and beyond for my family. I cannot recommend him enough!
September 4th, 2014
Jack has represented me on the purchase of two homes. He is an expert in the areas of short sales and foreclosures. Jack routinely advises his clients on the status of their sale. I don't worry about things because I know Jack is always on top of where we are and where we need to be.
September 2nd, 2014
our review helps others decide on the right agent for them. Please tell others why you recommend this agent.
Jack has the following qualities that make him the real estate professional I would highly recommend: market knowledge, high sense of urgency and follow-up, and exemplary integrity. I will not hesitate to use his skillful services again.
May 2nd, 2014
Jack knows the market better than most Realtors. He can help you with complicated transactions that many agents would shy away from. He had to do an extensive amount of work to get my duplex to closing (beyond the call of duty). He earned every penny of his commission!
I held a real-estate license at one time so I know a little bit about how to judge the knowledge and effectiveness of a Realtor. I highly recommend Jack for ANY real-estate transaction

Jack is a terrific guy and gets the job done by listening and providing excellent service! He is also very helpful to his fellow MainStreeters!
