About Me

Jennifer Barnes has been a real estate broker in Chicago for 15 years with approximately 150 closed properties representing both buyers and sellers.


In 2015/2016, Jennifer's list price to sell price ratio was 3% higher than average, and had a market time 40 days under average market time.   What that means for her seller clients is more money in their pockets at closing, and over a month less time spent having strangers traipse through their homes.


In addition to working with sellers, Jennifer specializes in first time buyers and newcomers to Chicago and surrounding suburbs.


Jennifer strives to make every real estate transaction as stress-free as possible by arming her clients with a thorough knowledge of the buying and selling process, the market data to help them make an informed decision, and when necessary, a dose of humor.  She recieves consistent accolades from clients on her excellent communication skills.  There are few scenarios she has not seen, and few problems she has not found a way to overcome. She prides herself on being more than a transactional agent, and is available to her clients post-closing as a trusted resource.  


Jennifer harkens from Evanston, and has lived in Chicago for over 20 years, with 13 of those years being in Logan Square.   She holds a BA in Humanties from Shimer College. In her spare time, she enjoys Chicago's vibrant dining scene, yoga, travel, and a good bourbon.   She is a board member and volunteer for CANTER Chicago, a non-profit organization that helps retiring racehorses find loving homes.

Clients are saying:

"I have to admit I had a preconceived notion (mostly from hearing my friends' stories) that selling my house (that I was living in) is going to be an awful experience. It was NOT!
From the very first moment Jennifer put me at ease, explained the whole process step by step (and often repeated more than once). She was always accessible, extremely dependable and ethical (yes, ethical). I like her comprehensive approach, from her initial house decoration/decluttering/paint suggestion etc. to sensibly pricing my house to sell. My house sold in two weeks!!!
I would recommend this true professional with all my heart and enthusiasm!"
