Turning dreams into reality.
With Jennifer Baron, there’s always a happy ending. For 15 years as a location manager for film and TV, Jen introduced directors to the best Chicago has to offer and now shares that same passion and expertise with her real estate clients, helping them find the location of their dreams.
But Jen doesn’t just turn scripts into reality, she’s mastered the real estate market too. Since 2002, she’s been helping buyers and sellers navigate the Chicago and suburban markets. She’s weathered dramatic market cycles, mastered every transaction scenario and is always focused on finding the perfect solution for each client’s needs.
Not only does 80 percent of her business come from repeat clients and referrals, Jen’s performance spotlights her experience.
- In the top 5 percent of Chicago realtors, Jen averages 98 percent list to sold.
- An accredited staging professional since 2007, Jennifer knows which improvements and proven staging strategies work to add value and appeal to her client’s properties. Ultimately, her staging finesse helps her listings sell faster and at a higher value than the average comparable property.
- She is an accredited buyers representative, certified negotiation expert and has her National Association of REALTORS® Green designation, aligning her passion for environmental issues with real estate.
Becoming a REALTOR® wasn’t just a natural transition from scouting – she inherited this passion from her parents. With her father as both a REALTOR® and developer and mother an interior designer who specialized in staging properties, Jen grew up seeing firsthand what it takes to successfully build, stage and sell property.
Jen holds a BA in film and TV production from Columbia College Chicago, and put herself through school by managing a highly successful mobile DJ company. She also became a national certified massage therapist and Reiki Master and practiced for 20 plus years. She is an environmental enthusiast who is passionate about organic container gardening and animal rights. She is also a longstanding volunteer mentor with the Friends First program of Mercy Home for Boys and Girls.
Nobody knows the city better than Jen Baron.
Clients are saying:
"Jennifer was very thorough in her research on local comps and in analyzing the market. Great staging, marketing and showings. We were under contract in 4 days after listing, and we sold at 5% over list price!
"This is my second real estate purchase with Jennifer. She also sold my house in 8 days! Jennifer is professional, organized and VERY knowledgable about her field! I trust her advice completely.
I highly recommend her!"
"True- Jen Baron has changed my opinion of any realtor. I own 4 houses, and have had as many realtors. Never again will I trust or work with any other realtor. Her thorough and sage knowledge are bourne instincts. Whatever she suggested to fix raised the value of our house in great numbers. Small details to larger replacements- all the right call and we sold 10K over asking. Hello? She made the best of relations with my renters in our building, made it easy for us to handle all details and minor costs. I have already recommended her to my best friends. You could get no better friend in a realtor. She is the most professional courteous, and instinctive person I have worked with in many years. And I come from Exeuctive Sales Managment in a Fortune 500 company. I wish I had another house to sell! But when I do- she will be there! Jen Baron is a sure thing, I won't be doing any real estate with out her input/advice or just plan guidance. She is simply the best. Anyone would be lucky- and smart to have her helm your search/sale."
"I highly recommend Jennifer for both your buying and selling needs. She helped me find a beautiful condo 5 years ago, and recently helped me to sell it for a considerable profit. I received 2 offers within days of putting it on the market. Jennifer gave great advice regarding staging and color choices, and provided a lot of useful insight based on her many successful years as a Chicago stager and real estate agent. She knows the city and takes the time to know her clients, and their individual needs. Jennifer also has enlisted top professionals to assist with whatever contingencies arise, whether it be a window guy to complete inspection repairs, or attorneys that can assure a smooth, stress-free closing. Also, the photographs of my condo that were included in the property brochure that @properties compiled for the sale, were absolutely gorgeous. I can't thank Jennifer enough!"
"Jennifer was instrumental in helping me sell my condo. With her years of experience she provided great advice regarding how to stage my apartment for maximum market exposure. I sold within a week, above the asking price. The brochure she produced was excellent and brought in lots of traffic. I would highly recommend Jennifer as a real estate broker."
