She was named Best Real Estate Agent in the Chicago Reader's Best of Chicago 2012 issue.

Jen is a natural negotiator and her clients are happy to have her on their side. Her integrity and work-ethic show as her clients compliment her with referrals.
“Jen truly understood my mindset as I went through my first real estate purchase. As a novice buyer there were several elements of home buying I didn’t quite grasp. Jen’s patience, intuition, and coaching helped me hone in on a set of criteria and areas without being overbearing. She worked at my pace, which changed regularly with work, and never let me leave a place without pointing out a pro/con. This kept me from making several rookie mistakes that would have been costly in the long run, and helped me identify a place for me that double served as a quality investment. Jen’s soft approach and mentoring through the process was expertly complemented by her advocacy and tenacity during the negotiating process. Jen got what I wanted, when I wanted it, and didn’t give an inch more than necessary to close the deal. It was an enriching experience and I will certainly be referring her to all those I know looking to rent, buy, or sell.” - Ryan Sullivan (Roscoe Village)
"I began working with Jen after an unsuccessful attempt to sell my house with another realtor for 6 months. Jen came in and offered new suggestions to my listing. She gave me professional advise I was not receiving from my previous realtor, and was upfront and honest regarding the changes that she felt needed to be made. I followed her advise and let her take over. Immediately I noticed my showings picked-up and the momentum had shifted practically instantaneously. Within the first week of being listed with Jen I had a super strong offer on my unit! I could not believe how things had changed under Jen's leadership. Even after we agreed to terms with the buyer Jen worked so hard ensuring the offer kept in good standing. In today's market anything can happen at anytime, and Jen was on it to ensure we had no surprises. Through this process Jen showed poise, leadership, expertise and flexibility. Without Jen's representation I know I would still be trying to sell my home. I would recommend her to my closest friends and family and I look forward to working with her once again in the future." - Tony Pupillo (Uptown)
"We felt that Jen made sure to spend time really listening to us in order to find exactly what we were looking for in a home, and she didn't ever rush us into making our mind up too quickly. The home-buying process is stressful; we were so fortunate to have such a patient, great listener as our Realtor. We don't think we could have done it without her and we have recommended her to a few of our friends." - Michael & Kenna McDonald (Wrigleyville)
"In a tough market, Jen was instrumental in getting my condo sold in a very short time. Due to her follow-up with interested parties, I ended up receiving two offers for my unit. Thanks again, Jen! - Jim Konchel (Andersonville)
“Jen is a wonderful real estate agent to work with and I cannot say enough good things about her. She is diligent, patient, detail oriented - not a single item slipped through her fingers -not to mention responsive, and fun. I am pleased to recommend Jen as an agent!” - Susan Kirshner (East Lakeview)
“I was immediately impressed with her creativity. She was persistent and responsive to both potential buyers and us, as the sellers. No matter how difficult the market she always stepped up the game and met the challenge. She seemed confident in her suggestions and actions and she really knew exactly when to make the right moves. Jen was also up front and honest with us and never just told us what we wanted to hear. She was the best decision we ever could have made when it came to selling our home and I highly recommend her to other sellers as well as buyers.” - Tiffany Willard & Khurram Khan (East Lakeview)
"Jen was a true pleasure to work with. She is professional, responsive and knowledgeable in all matters, and really puts her client first. I would highly recommend that anyone involved in a real estate transaction should give Jen a call." - Matt Parsons (East Lakeview)
“Jen was our real estate agent for selling our condo duplex in the city and purchasing a new home in the suburbs. Since this was a tough real estate market we thought it could take months to sell our condo. She sold our place within 2 weeks of listing it! She was wonderful at pointing out every feature available in our condo and sizing up the competition to potential buyers. She then went above and beyond to set up marathon weekends looking for a new house in a short time because we sold our condo so quickly. We found the perfect home for us and could not be happier. We are so thankful to have all the support and resources Jen provided to us and would recommend her to anyone and everyone that asks!” - Diana & Jeff Fitzgerald (East Lakeview)
