""Jen regularly goes above and beyond for her clients. It's at the point now where she has transcended the business relationship and our family is truly friends with her. She brings polish and professionalism to every interaction and was instrumentally helpful in our relocation back to the Chicagoland area from across the country. Jen also works with us well beyond the transaction and helps introduce industry colleagues and support people across various business and legal functions. Thank you Jen for all of your help and support." Peter (Winnetka)"


""Jen is the best! She sold 2 of my condos and found me a house that I absolutely love. Would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a new home in the Chicago area." Caitlin (Streeterville & Lincoln Park)"


""Our experience with @properties and specifically with Broker Jennifer (Jen) Lapins was priceless! Jen's expertise, professionalism, and warm personality made our search for a new home the best experience my husband and I have ever had and that's saying a whole lot since we're 62 and 70 years of age! Jen listened closely to our wants and needs. She delivered to us a list of places meeting everything we had on our wish list. She set up the viewings, taking us to see them while making efficient use of our time. Her ability to understand what we were looking for allowed us to decide quickly which home was best for us. Jen also did an excellent job walking us through the final process. We can't say enough for how appreciative we are that we had Jen working with us. Thank you Jen for being so committed to your job and to us personally. You're awesome!!!" Rose (West Lakeview)"


"" We found Jen Lapins through a referral from our friends when we were selling our Chicago home. From the beginning we felt that Jen was up front and straight forward about our selling process. She was very knowledgeable about the market, timing and our specific location/unit. Jen was very familiar with the area and the market and was able to bring in several buyers with her numerous contacts. We felt that Jen was invested in selling our home and we felt she was responsive to our concerns and needs. We felt confident that she was looking out for our best interest. In the end, our home sold quickly and we felt that we got what we wanted based on her guidance and help with negotiations. We would highly recommend Jen as your agent." Lynn (West Lakeview)"


""A neighbor referred us to Jennifer Lapins and I am so grateful. Working with Jennifer was a pleasure from start to finish. She helped us set the right price and gave valuable advice regarding what we should do to the property to help it show to the best advantage. Her experience with the market was invaluable to us. After we got a full-price offer, Jennifer was on top of every detail and guided us through the home inspections, legal work, title work, etc., all the way through the closing. She is extremely knowledgeable, confident, and personable. I would highly recommend Jennifer Lapins and @properties. " Marcelle (East Lakeview)"

Abbie (West Lakeview)"


""Jen is such a pleasure to work with. She is incredibly detail oriented and focused on what is best for her clients. We have done a few transactions with Jen and I cannot thank her enough for her commitment and loyalty. My wife and I would highly recommend Jen as she went above and beyond our expectations on the most recent transaction from start to finish. We could not have completed this sale without her and look forward to working with her in the future. " Peter (Lakeview)"


""Jen was fantastic. She listened to what I needed then was able to narrow things down relatively quickly and then negotiated the price to where I thought it was fair. Have used many realtors over the years - she was the best. Already have referred her to two other people." Pat (Lincoln Park)"


""5 weeks from list to close need we say more? :) Jen was patient in our listing process since construction on our new home was very delayed. She met with us early for in the process to discuss our plan and suggested moving out first and then staging the property which was clearly the correct choice, and so much less stressful than living in the unit while listed. She kept an eye out on all the various comps and confirmed our initial pricing strategy as we approached our move date. Once we were ready, she was speedy and professional and the result was a very fast sale and close. Couldn't be more pleased!" Julie (Lincoln Park)"


""Jen always puts her clients first and is a consummate professional. Pleasure to work with. " Peter (Lincoln Park)"


""Working with Jen was amazing! She was very responsive during the entire process, quickly found us the perfect loft, and truly made our first home buying process extremely seamless. As a first time home buyer, we had many questions and Jen did a great job of "holding our hand" through it all. She had great recommendations on which lender, attorney, and home improvement specialist to work with. I will certainly recommend her to all my friends and family and will work with her on any future home purchases/selling. " Nora (West Loop)"


""Just completed my fourth transaction with Jennifer Lapins. She helped me buy 2 homes and sell 2 homes. She is absolutely the best. So professional and provides excellent feedback and advice. She makes the process as easy as possible." Jaycey (Ukrainian Village)"


""Jen is the best Real Estate Broker my wife and I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Relocating from CA, my wife and I knew very little about Chicago real estate. Jen answered all our questions and went out of her way to ensure we were well informed about the different options available to us. My wife and I couldnt be happier with the level of service she provided. " Spencer (Oak Park)"


""Jen was absolutely too good to be true. She would not give up until I found the perfect home and when we found it, she negotiated things into the deal I would never even have thought of. I was 45 minutes away and she even met floor refinishers at my place so I didn't have to make the drive into the city, who does this??? Sale went on without a hitch, she took the time to come to the closing just in case there were any questions, again how many realtors do this??. She went above and beyond to make the whole process go as smoothly as it possibly could. So many extra touches couldn't even begin to list them. And she made sure my purchase was worth the price I was paying. I could not be happier and would never think of using anyone else." Carolyn (Lincoln Park)"


""Jen has incredible knowledge of the area and of the market. She is able to clearly explain the pros and cons to any decision. She is very easy to reach and is constantly in touch throughout the process. She works very hard to achieve a successful result. I have and will continue to refer her to friends and family in the area, and will not hesitate to contact her the next time I need assistance! Thank you, Jen!" Jessica (East Lakeview)"


""Jen was very knowledgeable about the market and client preferences in properties. We received an offer (final buyer) after our first showing! Could not ask for anything more as we listed and closed in less than 60 days. Very easy to work with and great communicator. " Mark (Avondale)"

""Jen Lapins is the consummate professional. She listens like no one else in the business, bringing to bear an encyclopedic knowledge of the market and a keen business sense. No detail escapes her attention, and she is always ready to help--and always available--through every step of the process. Without Jen's counsel, we would've never found the house we purchased, and we would've never struck the comprehensive deal that Jen negotiated. If you're looking for a broker, look no further. Jen Lapins is indispensable, and we recommend her with every confidence." Joseph (Roscoe Village)"

"Jennifer Lapins is a fantastic professional and was always on top of things. She helped us in getting a very good price for the condo, helped us along every aspect of the sale and got us the best possible team of attorneys, home inspectors, interior decorators, and loan officials. She made the whole process so pleasant and methodical that we just can\'t say enough about it."


"Jen was a great person to have on my side throughout my entire home buying process, from starting to figure out what I wanted to prioritize in my search to answering all my questions through the closing. She has a deep knowledge of the market and different areas of Chicago and saved me time by advising me which buildings to avoid due to ongoing issues. I really appreciate her honesty and direct approach to getting things done. Jen also helped me get to a great spot with my initial offer and through the negotiations by doing research to really understand what was realistic. I feel like I found the perfect place for me and got it at a great price!"

"Jennifer is quite simply the best there is. She acted as so much more than a broker throughout the process. She helped provide design input (she has great taste!), couriered packages and checks around town when I was traveling, and kept me focused and on-task throughout. She was a great advocate when it came to working with the developer on the build-out, as well. She will be my go-to person for any real estate needs in the future!"


"Jennifer is one of the best agent I worked with, I wish there was one Jennifer in every city I'm going to move/buy a property in. She's very professional and I would recommend her to all the people I know in Chicago"


"Jen is an excellent communicator and in-touch with the buyer and the seller. This really helped when we had a potential tenant, but there were some red flags indicating that he might not have worked well with the condo. She helped us get the right tenant. Thanks Jen!"


"Jen loves residential real estate and it shows through her enthusiasm as well as her commitment to her clients."

"Jen did an amazing job walking me through the process as I am a first time buyer! She got to know my needs and wants, explained the process thoroughly and always had great suggestions! She knows Chicago so well and her expertise and knowledge were invaluable!"


"Without a doubt, I would highly recommend Jen to help you find your new home in Chicago. Having lived in the South Suburbs, I wasnt familiar with the Chicago neighborhoods, but after doing some researching on my own, I found a couple of areas that I focused on. Jen was very knowledgeable about the market and properties in general. She helped my daughter find the perfect condo a couple of years ago and I was hoping to have the same experience. I was not disappointed. In addition, Jen negotiated a great deal for me. She is a top-notch professional, experienced in the field, and was a pleasure to work with. I love my new home.Thanks to Jen !"


"A fabulous experience from start to finish, Jennifer negotiated a tremendous deal in the perfect location. I will absolutely refer her time and again"


"Having worked with Jennifer Lapins for several years now, I can draw the conclusion that she is very knowledgeable of the areas she represents in all possible aspects. I consider myself a picky client, as many would, in that you want the best property in terms of price, stability, and location and Jen is very helpful and patient throughout the process to help you find it. I have found two such perfect properties with her that I also worked on renting out with her, and each time she went above and beyond her call of duty. I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for that perfect home or investment in a sometimes crazy marketplace."


"Jen helped us purchase our first condo in 2006, sell the condo, and purchase our home this summer. Through the peaks and valleys of the market, Jens professionalism and patience (both with us and the market) remained primary. We appreciate her negotiation skills both as sellers and buyers, and she was readily available to answer our questions throughout both processes. We are very happy in our home, and her expertise was invaluable."


"Jennifer did an amazing job helping me look for a new place. I was in a tough position with having some time constraints regarding the selling of my old property and urgency in finding somewhere new to live and I couldn't have asked for more. When we had to go hard and look quickly at multiple properties on some days, she was available whenever my schedule was free. Extremely courteous and proffesional. No matter what price range you are looking at there is no doubt in my mind that she would be able to find something that is perfectly tailored to your style. I am not a very experienced buyer only 2 properties under my belt, and she was very helpful in making sure I understood everything that was going on during the whole process and also that I didn't overlook any small details that I might've blown off if they weren't brought to my attention. Overall 5-5 I will recommend! her to all my friends and family in the city looking for new homes."


""My husband and I recently worked with Jen to buy our first home together and we were nothing but thrilled with our results. When looking for a realtor our requirements were, a realtor who was professional, competent, and educated, someone who knew the Northside neighborhoods inside and out, and someone who was in tune with the current Chicago real estate market. Jen met all of these requirements plus some! From day one Jen was dedicated not only to finding us the perfect home, but also helped us find tenants and rent my husband's condo. So, if you're looking for an amazing multi-talented realtor Jen is your girl!""


"Jennifer Lapins was my best resource in my search for a new home. As a first time home buyer I was intimidated by the experience of purchasing a home, but Jennifer was able to put me at ease with her expertise. She was really receptive to my preferences and was able to show me impressive properties. When I told her I was a professional chef she started listing off properties whose kitchens stood out in her mind. I couldn't be happier with my final choice and the great price I bought it for!"


""Jen is fantastic. When I moved to Chicago, I was anxious about purchasing a home because I didn't know much about the town. She helped me find the right place to live. Now that I know, I feel lucky she was my broker.""


""Jen Lapins has represented us in the purchase and sale of several properties, and has exceeded our expectations at every opportunity. Jen is a tremendous asset at the bargaining table; her experience allows her to anticipate issues before the arise, and her negotiation skills result in timely and reasonable resolution of contractual demands. Most importantly, Jen has the knowledge to set appropriate pricing, and to market the property in an effective manner. Most recently, Jen represented us in the sale of our South Loop condominium in very difficult market conditions. A similar unit across directly across the hallway had been on the market for 6 months, and had lowered the price several times. We left town for the weekend before our unit was listed, and Jen called us to ask permission to show the unit to some interested parties before the listing date, which we of course agreed to. By the time we returned on Monday, Jen had already scheduled a second showing with the interested party, and our unit was under contract by the middle of the week - only 3 days after the unit was official listed! Jen had started searching for potential buyers before our unit had been listed (she overheard the buyer at another open house say that he was looking for "more space"), found the buyer, brought him in, and sold our unit for more than we had expected, and in only a few days. We could not be happier with the representation that we have received from Jen. She is not passive in her approach to marketing, she actively pursues leads and will contact them to describe the property. Jen is diligent, creative, and exceedingly competent; in my opinion, there is no better real estate representation available.""


""We cant tell you enough how much we appreciated your initiative, your diligence, your responsiveness and your good counsel throughout the sale process. We could not have imagined better service from anyone else. We absolutely would retain you again.""


"Jennifer Lapins is a fantastic professional and was always on top of things. She helped us in getting a very good price for the condo, helped us along every aspect of the sale and got us the best possible team of attorneys, home inspectors, interior decorators, and loan officials. She made the whole process so pleasant and methodical that we just can't say enough about it."


""I had a great experience searching for a home in Chicago with Jennifer. She listened to what my top priorities were and found me a place that exceeded my expectations. She handled the negotiations professionally and very successfully. Jennifer was extremely knowledgeable, and very thorough and attentive to detail. I feel very lucky to have had Jennifer on my side and am happy I found someone I can rely on in the real estate business.""
