Hmmmm…..what can we say about Jeanne…..only that she did the impossible for us in the shortest period of time for the most amount of money in the most painless way!! This house had been a burden on our shoulders for many years, and it SO needed to go! From the start Jeanne advised us and was there when we needed some help and encouragement. We did all of the work, 21 days of it, on the house ourselves to get it ready to sell and in the end we were pleased with the outcome. Jeanne assured us she priced it to sell which is what we wanted. The first person who looked at it 12 hours after it was listed put a contract on it and ended up buying it exactly 60 days later. Even though we did not want to pay a realtors commission to sell it in the beginning, we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we would still be trying to sell it for a long time to come had we not contacted Jeanne, and she certainly earned her money and our trust. We will be using her again in the future without hesitation! Mallory and Karen Granitz
Having bought/sold dozens of properties throughout the world, Jeanne is the best realtor in the world! Joe C
Jeanne worked very hard to get a closing on my house despite numerous obstacles that arose on the buyers end. She knows her market and priced my home appropriately to finally sell. I had been trying for 6 years and numerous agents, including FSBO, and with my unique property, Jeanne was finally able to match up the perfect buyer. Terry
Boy, am I glad I found Jeanne! My lake house had been on the market for over two years and I had it listed by two different agents, each for one year. The last agent is the “top” agent in lake Oconee. Neither agent showed any interest in marketing the home and there was never direct communication on showing or an attempt on following up with interested parties. Jeanne had my house for 1 month before we had an offer. She changed the photographs to accentuate the home’s assets. She actively gave me feedback after each showing and when we actually got a contract, she was a great negotiator and got our house sold. I has been a pleasure working with her. She is TOPS!!! Cristian Thomae
We could not have asked for better representation — Jeanne was a perfect fit. We knew the market in the area was moving — but slower than other areas due to the remote location. Jeanne was focused on how it was marketed and combined with her knowledge of the area, there was good traffic from the time it was listed up to the sale. Our home is proof of the many great homes available “off the lake” but with easy lake access without the expense associated with direct on-the-lake lots. Debbie Southworth
Jeanne was superior throughout the marketing and selling of my historic home. She remained positive and upbeat through the entire process and negotiate a fair deal that closed quickly. Definitely the best Realtor I’ve had the chance to work with over the years. Chris Lutz

I can not say enough wonderful things about Jeanne! She was professional and had done so much leg work before our first meeting; she knew things about my house that I didn’t even know! We had tried for almost two years to sell by owner and within 1 week of putting our house on the market we had two offers! My only regret is not having called her sooner! Mitzi Everett
Jeanne is super knowledgeable with regards to homes, farms and land. Whether you are buying or selling you will get an excellent level of service and attention from Jeanne. Russ Green
We bought this property as an investment and when we decided to put it on the market, we had listing contracts with two other realtors over the last three years. When we decided to list the property with Jeanne, she came with two offers within two months and we sold the property for more than our asking price. Jeanne is friendly, professional and will work hard for you while constantly communicating with you. She is a real professional and we are so lucky to have had her assist us with the sale of this property! Tom and Lucy Kaiser
Jeanne really helped bring in the right clientele to sell our property. She is a great communicator and a pleasure to work with. She did a great job with the home photography and description of the property and marketing it on social media. Ann Welch
We can say that without a doubt, we have never been as impressed with a Real Estate agent as we have been with you. We appreciate your knowledge of the area and the sharing of information and we thank you for that. Lyle and Susan C
I want to thank you for all you did to assist Deloris and the Foundation Fighting Blindness complete this incredible gift. I have worked with countless realtors over the years in the thousands of real estate transactions I have handled and, clearly, you are one of the very best of that group. John Corneille, Attorney
We recently spent a long weekend looking for houses with Jeanne Dufort in Madison and Greensboro. We were thoroughly impressed with her professionalism, knowledge of the area and attention to detail. She spent all day with us and was very patient, yet kept us on schedule as we had several houses to view. She appreciated the fact that we were completely unfamiliar with the area and was most informative on many levels, including things related to what it would take to restore an old historic home. We are continuing to work with her to find the perfect home for us. We have bought and sold many houses over the years but we think Jeanne is a cut above all the other agents we have worked with, in the past. We would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an honest and dedicated professional who clearly loves her work and the places she represents. Cheryl and Jerry from Colorado
Just wanted to say thank you again for sticking with us during our search for property in Madison. We could not have fallen into greater hands and it’s without saying that you are the best agent we’ve ever had. We are very thankful that you held our hands during this journey. Jacqueline and Brian, Decatur
We do so appreciate the new information, your preparation time before our meeting and the time you gave to us on Wednesday. You should train realtors on how to act: professional yet empowering potential buyers to make wise choices. Again, we thank you for answering our 1000’s of questions and showing us what we wanted to see. You were truly professional in every respect; we are grateful for your assistance.
Patsy and Ben Grimes, South Carolina
Working with Jeanne Dufort was an extremely enjoyable process. Being in the real estate industry ourselves, we found Jeanne to be extremely knowledgeable about her market, available listings and market value. With Jeanne’s patience and guidance we were able to find the a lake front home that was the perfect fit for our family. We would highly recommend Jeanne to anyone looking for a first class real estate agent and would be more than happy to discuss our experience with her.
Mark and Trish Evans
When you ask a question of Jeanne she will either know the precise answer at the moment, and, if not, will get back soon with an accurate answer. Bottom line: Jeanne is a joy to work with, sees her clients as personal friends, is gracious, tenacious, and produces desired results… no matter how long it takes.
Joe Corey, Rutledge, Georgia – Jan 2011
In retrospect, after the conclusion of the sale of our Morgan County property in a tough real estate market, possibly Jeanne’s most important attribute was calmness in the midst of a chaotic market. Selling a property is a process, she says, and she remained unruffled during difficult negotiations and was able to keep buyer and seller focused on the goal of making it to closing. In short, we’d hire her again.
Brad and Jan Bailey – Jan 2011
We had decided on the Madison vicinity and had scouted several months for horse farm property throughout the Morgan County area and knew about all the ones for sale…or so we thought. We had even put an offer on one (that was turned down). We met Jeanne when we were looking at another property for sale. Jeanne wasn’t pushy about anything. She was sincerely interested in finding out about the type of property we were looking for so she could match us to the right one. And find it she did! The parcel wasn’t even on the market but she knew through her extensive contacts in the area that the owner was thinking about selling it. She walked us through a no hassles offer and counteroffer process resulting in a fair contract and speedy closing for both the owner and us. We were tremendously happy when looking for our retirement property once we found Jeanne. If you have horses…or want horses…you can’t do better than Jeanne to find a place to put them!

Jeanne Dufort was pivotal in helping me locate and procure my dream farm. She patiently showed many properties that fit my parameters, and then showed some of them to me repeatedly until my mind was firm on one choice. Jeanne was not only patient, she was well-informed about each property, and showed them to me in an orderly and timely manner. The process of actually buying she also facilitated. Her advise each time was the best–arranging inspectors, lawyers, bank, whatever was appropriate. I am not from this area, so her help really made me feel welcome. If you are considering a farm in this part of Georgia, having Jeanne Dufort help you would be the best of ideas.
Sharon Wilson – Jan 2011
Jeanne is an expert at listening to her client; she has the ability to weed out the unimportant information and expand on a person’s needs and dreams. Her ability to make a connection with people is amazing. Jeanne has worn many hats in her professional life and has been successful in any and all endeavors. But more importantly, she is totally committed to giving her all in anything she undertakes.
Cindy Horvath, Madison resident
Jeanne was a great help in our search for a home on Lake Oconee. Her energy was endless. She was so patient getting to know just what we wanted in a home. It took us many months and five or six trips down to get it done but she really came through for us. She is not only a great real estate broker but our first good friend in the area.
Bill and Jan Farrington, Harbor Club, Lake Oconee
The experience we had working with you to find this property was excellent. You were patient and paid attention to what we wanted. I think you knew we weren’t looking for a featureless piece of land in a neighborhood and even though it took a while (three years?) we got it dialed in. Especially important to me was your advice during the purchase process and the way you worked with us in those last days of closing when the bank didn’t deliver the last bit of funds on time. When our relatives decide to follow us I will certainly recommend you.
Thank you so much,
Johnny, Vada, and Matt
Thanks so much for helping us find our dream property. You were really tuned into what we wanted. We have looked at so many properties over the years and as soon as we were on that tract I knew that was it! We still can’t believe the great deal we got. Everyone we come across who might be interested in property, we’re steering them to you!
Pam and Rob Shaw
You have been a blessing to us as a real estate agent. Thank you for your dedication to helping us find the perfect house in Madison, Georgia due to our job relocations. You were available to show us homes based on our schedule (sometimes showing a home 3 different times within one day) plus never showing homes outside our price range. You understood our time restraints in purchasing a home between May and August for our middle school children to enter the award winning Morgan County School System. It is refreshing to meet someone who loves what they do for a living and invested in her community.
David and Marguerite Spates, Madison
Jeanne Dufort was there for us every step of the way in purchasing of our new home. She knows her business and the area. She is always giving in her knowledge and time.
