Clients are saying:
"Jennifer is absolutely amazing! She got me a great equity position and made this process seamless. Jennifer's extended supporting team of Lawyers, Brokers and contractors also made the process extremely intuitive. I will definitely be using Jennifer when I sell years from now."
"The scope of Jennifer Long's knowledge is incredible and she clearly knows Chicago in and out (yes, the entire city, not just a few select neighborhoods!!). Apart from that, she makes herself available to you at all hours of the day and night and helps with all different kinds of issues - from negotiating your deal to helping you find a contractor. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. She always made me feel like she had MY best interests at heart, and that's truly rare."
"We've worked with Jennifer three times now (two purchases and one sale), and she does an outstanding job! She is organized, timely, knowledge, and patient (our home search was close to 10 months!). Not only does Jennifer know the real estate market very well, she keeps you informed of the steps and process of buying and selling a home. She does so much more than just showing you homes, she understands the financial side of the transaction and many of the legalities as well. I would suggest Jennifer to anyone interested in buying or selling their home!"
"Jennifer was so easy to work with. It is evident she knows this business well, and has knowledge and experience to guide even a newbie through the process. She is extremely thorough and always willing to repeat herself or go through the steps again. She made an extremely long complicated process feel short and smooth."
"Jennifer was so patient with us as we changed our minds a few times as to what we were looking for and always was supportive. She was available fast when something new hit the market and this made all the difference for us getting the house we wanted. Her advice and support was calming at a very stressful time. Jennifer came recommended to us by friends and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor!"
