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.

Clients are saying:
"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. Jennifers 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. 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!"
"We had a negative experience with another brokerage, and turned to Jennifer Baron on recommendation of our attorney. Jennifer staged the unit in a very attractive manner, showing how the space might look with just the right furniture. She set a price based on not only a comparative market analysis, but on our instruction to move the property. We actually ended up with $20,000 more than the listing price! We are very well satisfied with Jennifer Baron's service to us. She sold the property in 6 days when the other firm didn't bring in a single offer in 6 months."
"Have to give a well deserved five star rating to our experience with our broker, Jennifer Baron and @Properties. First class organization! Started out with a well laid out packet of information when we signed the listing agreement. Then it just got better from then on. Jennifer staged our property and it looked just wonderful!. Then the professional photographer came out and took the BEST pics of any that I saw on Zillow. I can never understand how realtors can post pics of property they want to sell when the beds are unmade or the pics are fuzzy or there is junk laying all over. NONE of that happened here - the pics were just stunning! Once the listing posted, we got really good traction with the listing from the get go and ended up selling in less than 70 days for almost the listing price. Our home was located in an area where there were a lot of homes being flipped so we thought we might have to suffer price wise because of this. Jennifer was right on the money with the listing price and comps so the house sold quickly. The only down side is that we had to let go of our family home...but now we are off on our next journey."
