On my time off, I love to garden, kayak, go to the beach to relax and pick spots across Long Island to photograph. My son is starting his 2nd year in college and he is simply the best! I'm also an animal lover, especially dogs. I have Kyra who is a 60 pound Akita/Chow mix. Noah is my 20 pound mini Pinscher who is always testing my patience with his mischievousness. Both of my fur babies are rescues.

Jackie Connelly-Fornuff Expertise

Did you know that you, a buyer, are entitled to representation? Without it you have no one to negotiate your offer on your behalf because by New York State law, a seller's agent has to have their best interest at heart, not yours. As your Buyer's Agent, I will be able to pull up comparables so you can have a better idea of what to offer, I can give you a lot more information being your Buyer's Agent than if I wasn't. By not being your agent, I still have to, by New York State Law, have all seller's best interests at heart.

I will never try to get you to put an offer on a home in the hopes of a quick commission. You will let me know when you are ready to make an offer on a home I've showed you. I don't care if I have to show you hundreds of homes until you find "the one". It won't take hundreds, but you get the idea :) When you find that special home, you will know it. And, here are some tips for when you find your new home:

Mortgage Payment Comparison:

Let's say the Feds decides to raise the interest rate. Let me illustrate the potential shift in the housing and mortgage markets. The cause and effect is very clear:

Today you buy a $1 million dollar home:

Sales Price                                                                             $1,000,000.00

Down Payment                                                                     $   270,250.00

Loan Amount                                                                         $   729,750.00

Monthly Payment on a 30 year fixed at 5.125%              $       3,973.00

Now let us say if prices drop 10% in home values and today's $1 million dollar home sells for $900,000.00, this seems very reasonable.  The buyer would think well of course I should wait. Now let me add in to this scenario that the interest rate increased only by a modest 1%. Let's look at the numbers.

 Sales Price                                                                            $900,000.00

Down Payment                                                                    $200,000.00

Loan Amount                                                                        $700,000.00

Monthly Payment on a 30 year fixed at 6.125%             $    4,253.00

This increase in monthly payment will have a huge effect of the overall purchase power of the buyers and ultimately it will decrease the number of sales transactions. Hence the question should you wait or buy now, the answer is very clear to me.

Jackie Connelly-Fornuff Testimonials

  • Nora M.

    Jackie was awesome from start to finish. I am a first-time buyer and she held my hand through the entire process. She was in constant contact with me and always returned my calls and e-mails in a very timely fashion. Jackie was extremely professional and very accomodating. More importantly, I can tell that she is a genuine person who truly cares about her clients. I will definitely be recommending Jackie in the future to anyone I know who is buying or selling. My experience working with Jackie was nothing but positive! Thank you Jackie!!

  • Clare M.

    Jackie was just terrific in terms of knowing my needs and objectives, aggressively promoting the property and knowing how to engage the right buyer. She worked extremely hard in managing to close on my critical schedule with a difficult and slow mortgage process. She gave of herself personally as well as professionally in helping me through the process and helping me manage the stress I was under. I couldn't have done it without her and I'm very grateful that I was fortunate enough to have Jackie handle my sale.

  • Mark P.

    Jackie was easy to work with. She was on top of a slow and plodding buyer. She everything I had hope for in agent

  • Jamie & Brad S.

    Jackie was very helpful throughout the process and was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her to anyone I know. She was always willing tohelp and full of great information.

  • Robert & Jennifer Y.

    Jackie was very professional. She was quick to respond to all issues and very thorough.

  • Barbara and Patrick O.

    Jackie was just unbelievable. She went above and beyond what I thought a realtor was expected to do. She was there at the house when contractors came (before the purchase), and even waited at the house when I needed to take care of something after the purchase. She was there, and still is, whenever we needed her.

  • Mike & Alicia S.

    Jackie was great. I would highly recommend her to people I know. She is very trusting, and had our best interest in mind during the the process.

  • Richard D.

    Jackie is well versed in real estate and did a lot of research on my behalf. I used Jackie as my agent to sell my current home and for the purchase of my new home. As my home sold quickly, Jackie extended her time and effort to finding me the home I wanted. A very thorough professional and managed to close on my old home and my new home same day. A lot of stress was avoided. She was great!

    Jackie was very helpful in keeping me well informed with information related on the sale of my co-op as well as up to date on the purchase of my new home. She was very patient in explaining each step which ensured a smooth process on both the buy and sell. Jackie was a pleasure to work with, and I have already recommended Century 21AA to a co-worker.

  • Alex G.

    Just wanted to express my happiness with a service that I was provided by Century 21 AA Real estate and your BEST realtor on Staff Jackie Connelly-Fornuff.
    Jackie is very knowledgeable, "stubborn" and reliable employee. I have never felt more comfortable with any realtor that I have ever dealt with in a past. Her skills are really superb and she is just not giving up. When I was told by many other Realtors, my deal would never happen, Jackie told me the opposite!
    When I met her for the first time, one of the first things she told me: " I will break my back selling this house"
    I thought to myself, I heard that so many times and it was only selling words, just to get my listing.
    Little did I know that it would be true. Everyone gave up on my house. Nobody gave a chance for any deal. I was ready to be foreclosed on. One one person that I know thought it was possible and it was Jackie. Open houses, advertisement all over internet, anything to sell this house she would do and it all paid off.
    I have been updated on weekly basis with a progress. Even when there would be no progress, I would still get an update.
    Her communication skills with a client, will make her very successful in this industry going forward. Emails, texts, blogs, posts, you name it, Jackie is all over it.
    After exhausting 9 months of work, papers, papers and more papers, she got it done! She saved me from foreclosure, she changed my life where I can have a fresh financial start and continue investing.
    I would recommend her services to anyone who is on a Market looking for real estate and Century 21 AA Realty is truly blessed to her her on board
    Thanks for reading, but wanted to get it out to you.!
    I will miss communicating with her, but on the other hand, I am glad its all over and I am foreclosure free!
    Regards,
    Very happy former owner of Lindenhurst Alex G

  • Bobby C.

    Jackie Connelly Fornuff was extremely helpful, knowledgable and personable. She communicated with myself and my parents and worked her hardest to make the property transaction move along smoothly. If there was something she didn't know about, she quickly got answers. Not only would I recommend her, but we have already given her name to someone who is interested in doing business with a trustworthy and knowledgable real estate agent. JACKIE!
