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:
"I have worked with Jen Baron to both buy and sell property. There is no one better in the business. She has so much experience and insight to bring to the table. Anyone working with her can feel confident in her advice and trust her direction. She went way above and beyond not only for me, but also helping my entire building when I recently sold my condo (at Full price in just 6 days!). Jen is responsive, professional, and goes way out of her way to supper her clients. Working with her has helped educate me as both a buyer and seller and I wouldn't work with anyone else. I have and will continue to recommend Jen; so thankful I found her years ago! She is in a class all her own. I just cannot say enough good things about her, her work, and her results. Thank you Jen!"
"Jennifer did a phenomenal job for us! She sold our mother's house in 5 days and got us the price we wanted. She dealt with me and my siblings, all with differing views during a very emotionally difficult time, as a true professional - giving us great advice, encouragement and understanding. Thanks Jennifer!"
"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 knowlege 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."
"As a first time homeseller there was much about the process that was unfamiliar to me. Jennifer's preperation for the sale of our home enabled us to focus on what we needed to do to prepare for the sale leaving the details to our broker. Jennifer had prepared us so well for any contingencies that there was no point during the preparation or sale of the house that we felt surprised or ill informed. Our house sold quickly and at a price that was more than acceptable to us. ($5000 over asking price in 5 days!) I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone who is interested in a high degree of experience and professionalism with an extraordinary level of communication."
"Jennifer was an absolute pleasure to work with. This was my first time selling a property and Jennifer walked me through all of it step by step. Her knowledge, not only of the sales process in general, but of the Chicago market and my neighborhood specifically, was invaluable. She got me started on the right foot by coming up with a staging plan, which she also executed herself. The pictures came out beautifully and are what really enticed potential buyers to take a look at the property. Jennifer was in constant contact, providing updates and letting me know her thought process with regards to holding open houses and pricing strategies. At the end of the day, I could not have asked for a better experience. I recommend Jennifer to everyone, regardless if you are new to the process or have gone through a few sales already. Jennifer will make sure you get the best deal possible!"
