I have been working with Jen for about three years now. I am very pleased with her level of knowledge in the field. She is very thorough. Clear communication and expectations. She is on top of the game. I highly recommend her
Jen is the best! She is as dedicated as they come. We had a pretty unique situation and there was nothing she wasn't able to learn in order to help us. At times I forgot she had other clients because of the top notch care and attentiveness. We have recommended Jen multiple times over and will continue to do so. Thank you Jen!
My wife and I are buying rental properties in our Self Directed IRAs for an income stream in retirement. Jen has assisted us in purchasing 3 houses so far and the 4th is in the pipeline. I have done research on successful people. The one thing that got my attention is they surround themselves with people that know what they are doing. Jen is the type of person that we need to be surrounded by.
Jen has given us great advice on neighborhoods to get into as well as stay out of. One time in particular we pulled up in front of a house and she gave me the look like "really?" because the location was not good.
She has been very patient with us. Since we are constantly looking for properties she is very consistent on providing us with a list of properties that meet our criteria.
Jen amazes me with her ability to fill out all the various paperwork involved with the different transactions. We are purchasing foreclosures so we deal with banks, HUD and auction sites.
Jen possesses the qualities of a professional. The first property we ever looked at was the kind of place I associate with a Slum Lord. We have no intention of ever owning anything like that so we ran away from it. Jen told me later in conversation that she was glad to see us reject it. She did not want to be associated with clients like that.
We are extremely happy with Jen and all that she has done to help us be successful in our Real Estate investments. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with her.
If you have a home to sell/ need to find a new home, Jen is the person who can get the job done! I have known Jen for over 15 years. She is an incredible person and always puts the best interests of her clients first. I know this first hand through not just my real estate transactions but also my parents. Not only did my parents have a unique home to sell, the process was extremely emotional for them as they had raised their family in the home for 30+ years. I trusted Jen to take care of my parents and she did. I trust Jen completely and use every chance I can to refer her services.
Wow..I really don't know where to start. Jen is TRULY AMAZING. She stuck with me for 3+ years until I found MY HOUSE! She's honest and always available. Her knowledge about the industry is out of this world. I was a first time home buyer and I have to say there was never any pressure or uncomfortable feeling. I absolutely love Jen! Make her your agent, I promise you won't be disappointed!
After having several different realtors try to sell our small farm, and leaving such a bad taste in our mouth because of the way they were handling the advertising and showings, it seems like we were constantly being misled.
Our daughter had used Jen in the selling of her house and the buying of another and was very pleased. We had just bought another house and really needed to sell our farm, we called her and she went right to work. We listed with her in September and had a buyer that January. She is very professional as well as compassionate and as aggressive as she needs to be to sell, but not jeopardizing honesty and integrity, which makes her stand out. We highly recommend her, because we know she worked hard for us just like she would work hard for you.
I had a particularly tricky closing process in terms of details and timing and Jen was absolutely the best. Trustworthy, knowledgeable, always on task, always knew what to do or who to contact... I would not have closed on such a great house without her help. She's the best!
Not only was Jen personable, she was professional. She guided me through the process of selling my home in a way that decreased my stress tremendously and ended in a smooth sale. I couldn't have asked for a better Realtor at my side!
As a first time home buyer- you are already overwhelmed w/the details of taking care of the house- the how , what, when - who etc. How do I start?
Well my co-worker recommended Jen to me and boy I am ever grateful that they did!!!. Jen walked me thru the whole process from beginning to end, also directing you to the appropriate resources. She has you to do this exercise as to why you want to buy a house/become a home buyer which is critical as it is a huge responsibility and that is crucial when you are making this type of decision. For someone like me- I need to have each process explained which Jen did at each step. In addition- she was a wealth of resources as to service people & what your options were, etc. I would highly recommend her.
Jen is a highly qualified professional. She is knowledgeable about selling real estate and sold our home in 9 days for more than we had it listed. She continually asked what she could do to help us all the way through closing. She is quick to follow through with any request and did more for us than any realtor I have used in the past. She quickly returned calls and messages. She is the best!
Jen recently assisted our family through the sale of our home. The home went from listing to contract in one week! She is AMAZING! She is forthright and knowledgeable. She understands every step of the process and made sure that we did also. She is able to explain the most intricate details in ways that even I can understand. ;) She also supported us through the process of finding and buying our forever home.
She is exactly the kind of realtor you want to work with when making hugely important decisions about your home: experienced, patient, thoughtful and protective. I can't say thank you enough, but I'll try: THANK YOU, JEN!
Jen Mendenhall is fantastic agent! She is exceptional and goes way beyond what I would expect an agent would normally do to make sure you get the home you want. I always knew Jen had my best interests in hand and was thinking about my needs first. I wanted a house in a very specific neighborhood and Jen made it happen. She had to deal with a very difficult seller and still got me my dream house for less! I can't thank Jen enough for all the work she did for me and my family and would recommend her without question.
I was referred to Jen through some friends, and it's clear why they love her so much. As a first time home buyer I was a bit nervous but Jen was so great! We met up for coffee and she walked me through a number of different steps to buying a house, which definitely helped me understand the process more thoroughly and feel less intimidated by it all. Afterward we talked a bit about the type of house I was looking for and we started the house search from there.
What I really appreciated was how honest and no nonsense her assessments were of each house we visited. She pointed out all the issues/concerns she had for every house we walked into and the questions we would have to ask the seller if I were to consider purchasing the home. She was also really good at reading my face and asking questions about what I thought about the house. It was definitely helpful in allowing me to process through what I actually wanted/needed.
About 4 months later we finally landed on a house, and that was probably what impressed me the most. I truly felt like Jen was my advocate. I had a specific price in mind for the house and Jen was able to negotiate down to that amount. She was also great at negotiating all the major repairs I wanted done on the house and even met with the contractor and pointed out all the repairs I wanted (so that he fully understood all the requests we made on paper) and even got him to make some repairs that weren't listed. I really feel like Jen went above and beyond what I could have imagined. Even now, we are still in touch and she is continually supportive and helping to answer whatever questions or concerns I have about the house and connecting me with helpful people and resources.
Whenever I was talking to friends about the home buying process I would say "we" even though it really was just me. Because of Jen's unending support I really felt like I wasn't alone in this process, and I realize when I said we I was referring to her. I have been raving to my friends about how awesome she is and letting people know that if they need a realtor, I know a great one. Jen truly cares for all of her clients (she even recently hosted a client appreciation party - seriously, who else does that?). I'm so glad I get to be part of this community that calls her their realtor.
Jen Mendenhall is the best real estate agent I have heard of or worked with. We will recommend her to any friend or family member looking to sell or buy a home. She helped us with both. She helped us get our home ready for sale, and we found our buyers in TWO DAYS after the house was on the market. We needed to fix quite a few things in the house, and Jen always had a great recommendation for contractors and set up the appointments for us. She was always a text or phone call away during the entire process from listing our house to buying our new house. Jen is an expert negotiator, and handled everything with grace and assertiveness. Furthermore, she went beyond what we expected of a real estate agent by being there for every little detail.
Where do I even begin - we had such an amazing experience buying our first house with Jen! Even from our first meeting I know it was going to be a pleasant smooth experience! Jen walked us though everything step of the process as she wanted us to be educated buyers. She made herself very readily available and was constantly answering our questions. She was amazing in regards to giving recommendations for home inspections and has been equally amazing giving us names of contractors. I would choose Jen a million times! We were buying a house in MD while still living in NJ and it honestly would not have been possible without Jen's constant support!
We absolutely loved working with Jen. As first-time homebuyers, she helped guide us through the process and get the information we needed to make decisions. We never felt rushed or pressured and she had the answers to questions we didn't even know we had. She was extremely knowledgeable about all kinds of issues in older houses and was able to offer advice and recommendations for electrical, plumbing, and renovations. We were lucky enough to meet her at an open house and are so glad we decided to give her a call and work with her! She went above and beyond to help us get ready for our new home and we could not be happier with how things went.
I absolutely would (and already have!) recommend Jen to friends and family for their real estate needs. Jen helped us sell our first home (sold in 3 days) and buy our second within months. But most importantly, she was a trusted guide, knowledgable professional, and friendly voice along the way. She invested as much time as needed in every conversation, check in, meet up, etc., never rushing the process and always keeping in our best interests in mind. Jen is fun to work with and super nice, but when it comes time to negotiate with the other party, she is feirce (while fair), and an excellent, smart communicator and advocate for her clients. She helped us stage our home for a fast sale, and she is very knowledgeable when it comes to home systems, inspection results and follow up, and other pesky details that can make the process of buying a home overwhelming. It comes down to the fact that we trusted Jen from the first time we met her, and she rose to meet and exceed our expectations as we worked through the process. She never failed to follow up on a detail or question and was extremely proactive with seeking external inputs, getting things taken care of to avoid potential issues that could delay closing, etc. Thanks again, Jen!
Jen has been a gem to work with. She always met us with a smile. And to work with us she definately had to be very patient. And always professional. Jen is an agent that always had our best interests in mind. I can't imagine us ever needing another real estate agent as long as we live in Maryland.
Jen has helped us sell two properties in the area. Each time we have appreciated her knowledge, experience, resourcefulness, and dedication. I highly recommend her.
Jen is a great communicator. She makes sure that I understood the relevance and the necessity of what it takes to successfully sell a house. Jen would answer all questions or find out the answer, she would pick up the phone so that I was speaking with a person most of the time! - very important to me, Jen also has a wealth of knowledge of the community, offers qualified locale service persons and offered more that one recommendation when needed. Jen is personable and professional. She definitely has my recommendation!
