Jennifer came to Chicago from Kansas City to attend Northwestern University. She loved the city so much she never left! Another thing Jennifer loves is to help her clients' real estate dreams come true. ""There's nothing better than helping buyers find a place they really love, and helping sellers find the buyers who truly love their property,"" she says. Jennifer works hard to make this happen. The most important thing Jennifer considers when working with clients is to have open and frequent communication. She works with her buyers to discern what they must have, what they'd like and what they can do without. She encourages her sellers to be patient until the right people come along at the right price. Jennifer strives to make sure her clients have fun during the real estate process. Since she has bought and sold her own properties Jennifer knows the intensity of the sell/buy process. It's that empathy that helps her to establish strong, mutually respectful relationships with her clients. Jennifer's repeat clients attest to her skills, diligence, perseverance, and expertise in bringing them the best results in their real estate transaction. Jennifer states she analyzes everything. She looks at locations, trends, amenities — the whole thing — to arrive at the best pricing for both buyers and sellers. Jennifer is known for taking the time needed to ensure her clients understand pricing depends on a wide variety of variables in an often changing and challenging market. Another strong asset Jennifer offers her clients is skillful negotiation. ""I learned the art of negotiation before I got into real estate. I worked as a manager where it was essential to come to a win-win conclusion,"" she says. A process she explains where everyone gained something. This background is a bonus for her clients. She brings the best sales price and terms to her sellers and ideal property location and price for her buyers. Jennifer has been in the real estate business in Chicago since 1989. She has sold every type of property from new construction projects to a hotdog stand. She is versed in the city's differing neighborhoods, having lived in Lincoln Park, East Village/Wicker Park and the Gold Coast before finding the ""place of her dreams."" She was finally able to combine her love of the city and the beach. Now Jennifer watches the sun rise over Lake Michigan and listens to the waves lap on the beach below. Jennifer graduated from Northwestern with a degree in Sociology and is still an avid Wildcats fan. She has travelled the world and loves rock concerts, working out, and reading on the beach — any beach from Chicago to Michiana to Puerto Vallarta!
