"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."


"Jennifer is passionate about her job and her clients. She puts much time into researching the market in order to set her clients up for success in selling and buying. Besides just advising clients on how to prepare for showings, she is more than willing to go above and beyond and actually help clients prepare their living space. There was one day we had a showing and I was in a rush to leave for night shift and she offered to pick up some groceries for me. She truly cares for her clients and looks out for their best interest! I'm so grateful we were able to work with her. She will do her best for you!"


"We had to sell our house fast due to an out-of-state job offer. I interviewed several real estate agents before selecting Jennifer Baron. Her marketing package, combined with a thorough appreciation for the true value of our home, meant that our home was under contract mere days after hitting the market. Even after we moved, Jen kept us apprised of the sale process every step of the way, all the way until closing. It was a smooth-moving, carefree process from start to finish!"


"Jen is a true professional. Her knowledge of the market was amazing. She worked tirelessly to sell our property and that got us results quick. Interest was amazing and we were under contract in just days at full price. She is passionate and has a true talent for this kind of work. Much appreciated!"


"Jennifer Baron is by far the best realtor I have every encountered. She recently sold my much-loved condo in Chicago for me. I am now based in Australia, so Jen did everything - found an excellent lawyer, did thorough and careful research and priced the condo appropriately, and staged the apartment beautifully. It sold quickly for a good price. Jen even found someone to rent my parking space while the condo was on the market. She kept me totally informed throughout the process, answered all my questions clearly, and prepared and timed the paperwork so that I could do it easily at my end and get it back to her with no hitches. Nothing was delayed or incomplete. She was just fantastic! I cannot recommend her highly enough."


"It was a great pleasure to work with Jennifer. Our situation was unique and complicated. She was very patient with our process, knew exactly what needed to get done and took care of everything. I look forward to an opportunity to work with her again."


"Jennifer made the house hunting/buying experience so much better than previous real estate agents I worked with! She led me expertly every step of the way and explained the details of the overwhelming process of buying a new home in a way that I could understand, making the experience much less daunting. She responded quickly and thoroughly to any questions/concerns I had—and in great detail too. Jennifer never pressured me, listening carefully to my hopes and limitations, and working deftly within my tight time frame, financial and location restrictions. Hopefully I won't be moving again soon, but when I do, I'll definitely be calling Jennifer to help me out!"


"Jen is very passionate about everything she does, great at being a broker, knows what she is doing and does it very well. She also did a great job of staging my home and getting it sold in under 70 days in a tough market at the price I was hopeful of getting. THANKS JENNIFER FOR AWESOME EFFORT. A JOB WHILE DONE."


"I had my condo up for sale for 6 months but then switched to @properties in July. It was so refreshing to work with Jen as she included me in all her communication and let me know what she was doing every step of the way. The marketing materials, open houses and brokers tour were all very well done. Being out of town, she kept me up to date with the market and any changes. She was so helpful in all the aspects of the sale. Finally, without her relationship with a mortgage broker, the sale might have fell through. She saved the sale of my condo and i will be forever grateful. If i ever move back to Chicago, i will definitely ask Jen to help me buy a new home. It was a pleasure to work with her!!"


"As the Mortgage Banker who handles the financing for most of Jen Baron’s purchase clients, I knew that she was an excellent realtor. Her list of repeat clients and past client referrals spoke to that reputation. All of our mutual clients came away impressed with her dedication and thrilled with the property that became their home.When it came time for my wife and me to purchase a new condo, I never hesitated to ask Jen to represent us as our Buyer Agent. Even though I knew what to expect from the testimonials of our shared clients, the process left me with a whole new appreciation for the skills, effort, and perspective that she brings to the table as an agent. Jen’s background as a movie location scout in Chicago gives her unparalleled knowledge of the city and its buildings and a unique view of property. Her experience as both a buyer’s and seller’s agent enables sound advice on investment and resale issues. Jen helped us navigate a uniquely difficult purchase market, one in which there were few desirable properties and lots of fools’ gold, even as our requirements for our home and the type and style of property we wanted changed and evolved. She blended perfectly our needs for the property as our home and our needs for the property as a smart investment. She managed our emotional roller coaster as we dealt with stress, frustration, excitement, and worry. Up against a tight deadline (because she sold our condo in 13 days), Jen managed to get us into every property we wanted to see and found us pretty much the only condo in Chicago that met every single one of our needs. Two months later, we continue to be thrilled and amazed at how much we love our new home. More than anything, though, we can’t believe how much fun we had working with Jen. Her personality, along with her real passion for her job, made the whole thing such a great experience.We couldn’t have done it without Jen, and I would never try."


"Jennifer works tirelessly on all aspects of deals she works on in order to provide top notch service, and she succeeds. Her knowledge and insight, marketing effort and follow through on EVERYTHING is invaluable. I couldn't imagine her working any harder than she does and I really appreciate all her effort to get us the best deal for our house and make the road to closing as smooth as possible."


"She understands the market and needs of both buyers and sellers no matter what side of the transaction you are on. Everything she predicted regarding our transaction came true. She went the extra mile to help us stage and organize our unit before we went to market and leveraged her supplier network to facilitate a quick closing based on follow-up items from the home inspection."


"I have known Jennifer Baron since my family purchased the building in 2005. I have since sold other properties with Jennifer as the broker. I have always enjoyed working with her and trust her judgment and advice. She is a true real estate professional and everyone she comes in contact with, feels the same way. I would never hesitate calling on her services again and would refer her to anyone I know without hesitation. Mike Kelly"


"Jennifer is an outstanding real-estate broker. She provided me excellent service with regard to the sale of my home. She is extremely knowledgable in all areas of home sales, rental, buying and staging. All my home sales questions were answered in a timely fashion and in a professional manner. I will recommend Jennifer to all my friends and associates when they are looking to buy or sell their home."


"Jennifer Baron is the best! She gave me very personalized service and helped me find a place I can truly call home. She listened to my needs and concerns and customized a search for me. I got all I wanted and more."


"I have known Jennifer Baron when she worked at Sussex and Reilly. So I knew what I was getting, and we seem to work well together. She always returns calls, explains concepts that are difficult such as pricing, market fluctuations, and strategies for purchasing properties. She is committed to what she does and to date she has helped me: sell my mom's condo, sell my single family dwelling, sell my condo, and now purchase a 2 flat. I appreciate her dedication and hard work, and most of all she is honest and fair, which are qualities that are hard to find."


"Jennifer Baron is simply amazing! I am practically ready to sell my house, which I love and do not even want to move out of, just to have the chance to work with her again. I will shout her praises from the highest mountaintop, and GLADLY speak to any potential client of hers to provide a personal reference. She went WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND the call of duty on this very trying property. I simply could not be happier with her efforts on my behalf."


"Jennifer Baron is a wonderful real estate agent. Not only will she go above and beyond with setting up appointments, she will also inform you if the house you are looking at is a potential investment for the future. Jennifer helped my husband and I purchase our first condo together and I plan to use her in the future whenever we need to move."


"Jennifer Baron was our real estate agent when we bought a new home in October 2013. My wife and I felt that she did an excellent job, and were pleased with the service she provided. She showed us a variety of places in the neighborhoods we were interested in, and found us several good options to choose from before we made our final decision. She was well informed about the city and the neighborhood we were moving to. Once we made a decision and made an offer on the new house, she worked hard to push through the closing in a timely manner. She was skillful when negotiating repairs and other issues with the sellers prior to closing. She found us a temporary one month rental lease, because we were on a tight deadline to move out of our old house and needed a place to stay during closing. Jennifer Baron also has a good team around her. We were impressed with the real estate attorney, home inspector, and the contractors she recommended. She offered us several experienced contractors to work on our old house. Overall we felt that Jennifer Baron was an first-rate real estate agent, and we would recommend her without hesitation to anyone either buying or selling a property."


""Jennifer Baron came highly recommended to me when I first started thinking about buying my first home and I am so glad I got the opportunity to work with her. Not only is she a walking Chicago neighborhoods encyclopedia, she goes above and beyond for her clients. It took only one meeting to realize how passionate she is about what she does and how much she has the client’s best interest at heart. Going through this for the first time by myself, Jen armed me not only with confidence, but also a fantastic team to support me every step of the way. She is connected to some of the best and most honest people in the industry throughout the city that helped get me through the process. In times like these, I cannot stress how important that was to me. 
I was impressed by how much experience Jen has accumulated; she can talk endlessly about past situations and what clients have gone through. She will be the first to tell you that she does not have a crystal ball, but she is savvy and will prepare you for all of the possibilities. When my first offer fell through I was devastated, but Jen got me back out there looking and we found a place that I absolutely adore even more than the first place. I could not be happier with my condo or with how hard Jen worked for me. It gives a first time homeowner great piece of mind knowing that even after the final document is signed, she is there for you if you ever need her. Jen is the type of person that not only wants to be your realtor now, she wants to be your realtor for life, and I am looking forward to the next time we work together.""


"Jen was a tireless advocate for us as buyers. Her demeanor is honest yet reassuring. Her experience in negotiations were a key asset in our home search. I'd recommend her services to anyone who wants to focus on the home search itself instead of the hassles of the buying process. I can't stress enough how hard Jen worked for us. Above and beyond the call of duty."


"Jennifer Baron is one of the hardest working, most thoughtful people I know, as a friend and in business. As a Real Estate Broker, she took care of every aspect of my purchase and sale and gave me excellent advice all along the way. I could not have asked for more!"


"This is our third soon to be fourth transaction with our agent and we are very satisfied and would recommend to anyone who needs an agent."


"Jennifer Baron provided exceptional service during my condominium purchase which made this experience very enjoyable for me. Jen is very knowledgeable in the Chicago land real estate market and also a great advisor in all aspects of home ownership for those potential buyers that are new to owning real estate such as I was. Jen set me up with a great team by recommending a mortgage broker, lawyer and inspector that all proved to be outstanding and she even corresponded daily with each of these individuals to make sure the whole process went very smooth which it did. Jen provided a large pool of potential condos for me to visit and was very patient in helping me pick the perfect place. She then negotiated a great price for the place I wanted and I closed less than a month later! I have and would highly recommend Jennifer Baron to anyone looking to purchase real estate in Chicago."

She has vast knowledge of the real estate business and has several contacts that are experts in general contracting, inspectors, electricians and handymen that she receives input from and can provide excellent recommendations."

""My husband and I were in the market for a single family home in 2006; we chose Jennifer because of her reputation and knowledge in the Chicago neighborhoods we wanted to live. Jennifer was extremely patient, gave us sage advice, found us the best home in our price range and negotiated a great deal. We truly enjoyed working with her.""
