Jennifer Baron

Broker-IL and Salesperson-MI



Trust is everything. Especially when choosing a realtor to support you in the sale or purchase of a home. Jennifer Baron is a seasoned professional with over 20 years of experience who genuinely cares about her clients and understands the importance of trust. She's worked hard to earn her reputation as a trusted partner by dedicating herself to providing impeccable service, always. 

She attributes her success to following a simple playbook: she listens carefully, communicates regularly, and tenaciously negotiates on behalf of her clients, always with their best interests at heart. She is an experienced and savvy Realtor who knows how to navigate fluctuating markets and complex transactions. Jennifer brings the full force of her business acumen to achieve the best possible value in every transaction, to ensure her client's success, and to exceed their expectations.

Her ultimate goal is to make the home buying and selling process as stress free, informed, and enjoyable as possible. To achieve this goal, she relies on proven processes:

  • For buyers, Jennifer guides her clients with patience and precision, and arms them with the information they need to feel confident in choosing the right property and the best investment, in any market condition. 
  • For Sellers, she has perfected a formula that combines her expertise on pricing, her own hands-on, professional staging, and the best marketing available in the industry. She makes sure her clients get top dollar in the fastest time possible, saving them valuable time and maximizing their profit. For more than a decade, her listings have consistently sold at or above the asking price within a matter of days. 

The key to Jennifer's success in sales is her understanding that great photos are essential. Great photos drive traffic to your listing. And outstanding photos always start with stand-out home staging. So consistently has this fact been proven in her sales, that she has operated her own staging and design company since 2007. ‘Home Love' was created specifically to cater to her clients' real estate needs and to help them sell faster and for more money. These professional services are available as part of her sales and marketing package, and buyers receive a complimentary design consult as a closing gift.

Prior to becoming a Realtor, and after graduating from Columbia College with a BFA in Film and Video production, Jennifer worked as a location scout and location manager in the motion picture and television industry. She's worked on classic movies like "High Fidelity", "Ali", "Mad Dog & Glory","Curley Sue" and "Only the Lonely". This unique background has given her a masterful ability to coordinate all the moving parts in a real estate transaction for optimal client experience, much like a film production. It is from this 15-year career where she gained an unparalleled work ethic, learned the power of the image, and where she mastered the art of creating the "movie magic" that she brings to her home staging.  

Always seeking to hone and sharpen her skill set in order to provide exemplary service, Jennifer has heavily invested in her education and attained numerous professional designations and certifications. Currently she holds the following:

  • Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR)
  • Seller Representative Specialist (SRS)
  • Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE)
  • Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA)
  • Accredited Staging Representative (ASP)
  • NAR's Green designation (energy efficiency and sustainability)
  • At Home With Diversity certification (AHWD)

Additionally, Jennifer is a member of NAR (National Association of Realtors), two local Realtor associations, and proudly serves on the government affairs, public relations, and fair housing committees in SW Michigan.

Jennifer offers bi-coastal real estate services in both Chicago and SW Michigan. Fortunate to be one of @properties | Christie's International Real Estate's original agents and celebrating her 2nd decade with the brokerage, she now works between the New Buffalo, MI office and the North Center office in Chicago. Having grown up in a real estate family in NW Indiana, she spent time regularly in Michigan and fell in love with Harbor Country at a young age. She even scouted and brought film productions to Michigan back in her film industry days. SW Michigan has always been her destination of choice when taking time off from her busy career. It was always her goal to be licensed in Michigan and to share her love of the state with her fellow Chicagoans. So when it's time to find that second home, short term rental investment, or to relocate full time, know that you have a partner you can trust to make your sunset dreams come true.

If leaving the Midwest is your dream, Jennifer can also help you move anywhere in the world. With her background in relocation services and her amazing network provided through the premier brokerage of @properties| Christie's International, she has helped many clients relocate and buy and sell homes throughout the United states.

When Jennifer isn't being the ‘hardest working agent in real estate,' she is committed to doing all she can to support a sustainable environment and to leave a beautiful planet for future generations. She is a passionate organic gardener and is currently creating a pollinator haven, focusing on native nectar and host plants for the Eastern Black Swallowtail butterflies she raises. She adores bees, feeds the birds, rescues the spiders, and lets the rabbits eat from her garden… (when one of her 3 cats doesn't chase them). She and her partner love going on photo safaris to capture Michigan's beauty, and of course, they also try to never miss a sunset.

Trust really is everything. When you need an experienced, knowledgeable, dedicated and passionate Realtor, you can trust that you are in the best of hands with Jennifer. She'd love to be part of your journey and guide you on your next great adventure.
