Clients are saying:
"Jen and Jen were extremely helpful in listing and selling my mom's house after she passed away. They met with us and conducted a thorough assessment of the house in order to determine a reasonable asking price based on the value and our goals for selling the house. Once they placed the house on the market they were extremely efficient in marketing and showing the house and we were able to sell it within five days after putting it on the market. Jen and Jen kept us updated on a daily basis and even helped us evaluate multiple offers in order to make the best decision. They let us know how the process was going to work and gave us guidance in what to do. After the sale, they also helped us find a resource for managing the estate sale. During this somewhat difficult and emotional situation Jen and Jen were very attentive and made us their top priority. They always made us feel that they had our best interest at heart."
"Jen Hubl was my main agent and I also received support from Jen McGinn. They were a fantastic team! We were relocating to Chicagoland from NYC and we were completely unfamiliar with local areas. We narrowed our search based on schools, etc and Jen was AMAZING in pounding the pavement with us in a few towns to help us see what we could get where, and in understanding the local vibe of each town we considered (she prepared info folders with local info, brochures, maps, etc for each area we explored). She was also our arms, legs and EYES for when we couldn't be in Chicago in person to see a new listing. Based on getting to know us, she was able to cut to chase and tell us if she thought a place would work for us or not (and she didn't try to push "kinda good" places on us). We also had a bad experience with our first contract sellers ignoring a serious foundation issue - Jen stepped up to make anything and everything happen that she could, and in the end, helped me re-focus while I was in town on a single-day visit...and we ended up finding our new home. We are in a wonderful home that "ticked all of our boxes", at a price we felt good about, and she was the one who made it happen. I would recommend "The Jens" for anyone!"
"The Jens did not mess around!! They found me the perfect condo, sold my home quickly and helped me every step of the way. They are a dynamic duo with expertise, compassion and they are fun to work with!"
"From the moment the Jen & Jen came over to the moment we closed, our experience was outstanding. Having bought another home before we sold our old home, we were really stressed to get the old house sold. The Jens understood our dilemma and went right to work. With painstaking detail, they got the house ready and listed almost immediately. Their photographer took awesome photos in the dead of winter which showed the house in a brilliant winter and sunny glow. Jen & Jen even attended neighborhood meetings to learn about construction projects in the neighborhood. They contacted us after each showing and provided detailed analysis of any broker's comments. Jen & Jen learned from each showing and were able to objectively tell us if an offer was too low. In fact, if not for them, we would have sold our home significantly below market value. Thank God we listened to them. We feared and were prepared for a long drawn out process. But Jen & Jen got us through from list to close in 60 days! Thanks for the smooth and easy process ladies!!"
"It was a sincere pleasure to work with Jenn McGinn and Jenn Hubl. Having been out of the housing market for the past two years - they made the whole process of getting back in and looking for a house very easy. They have a tremendous amount of knowledge about the neighborhoods we were interested in. In addition to knowing the area extremely well, they also know the history - which was invaluable to us when we were looking at older homes. The combination of knowing the area and its history is so important - especially when you actually enter into negotiations to buy or sell a house. Given how many emotions play into a buying decision - Jenn and Jenn brought a level of honesty and professionalism that helped us make clear decisions. The clarity they bring to the whole process was an enormous help to us. I highly recommend working with Jenn McGinn and Jenn Huble - the "two Jenns" make a great team."
