John and Rick had worked hard for years to be in a position to buy a home. But not just any home. They wanted a first-floor condo in a specific building of a specific development on the NW side. Family lived nearby, and so location was priority. So they waited…until they reconnected with Jennifer on Facebook. John told her his goals, but there were no active listings that fit the bill. Jennifer had a mission, and she does love a good challenge. She looked long and hard until she found a tenant-occupied property with an out-of-state owner who was tired of being a landlord, and she presented an offer for John and Rick on the unit in January, which was ultimately accepted after a couple counters. And then they waited, while the tenants lived out their lease. In July, the tenants moved out and John and Rick moved-in, and now they’re joyfully painting and updating their first home on the first floor of the very building in the very complex they had desired. Missionimpossible? Not for Jennifer.

Mandatory relocations are tough on homeowners. “To keep your job, you’ll need to move” is never an easy ultimatum to swallow. That is the situation Mike found himself in, which meant 10911 Secretariat had to be sold, but the neighborhood was really going through a distressed phase when Mike called Jennifer, and his value was greatly less than he owed. There wasn’t any other option. Jennifer got on the phone with his lender, fought it out and negotiated a short sale that would allow him to sell the home and move on to keep his job without a large deficiency settlement. This was one of those sales that was not glamorous, but was necessary; and Jennifer takes a lot of pride in being able to help her clients when they are in need.
Room to roam, but close to everything. 5 rolling, wooded acres and a classic estate home make this property a rare find in Marion County. Gracious design and setting reminds of architecture in the deep south. Great location for horses with fenced pasture and barn. Finished walk-out basement is perfect for teenagers or a live-in family member. Updates too numerous to list from the kitchen counter tops to all the trim work and fixtures in the house.
If unique is what you’re after, this is a good fit. Contemporary house, circa 1926, on a quiet lot with mature trees and professional landscape; includes many updates: exterior & interior paint, flooring and windows. Master on the main is a nice surprise, kitchen is open and cheery with a custom tile inlay in the breakfast room. Home has a nautical feel with exposed beams, stone fireplace and rope work at the loft and staircase. This one would be SO FUN to decorate! Just blocks from the high school, in a quiet neighborhood, with a HUGE detached garage with 2 bays and a workshop area. A MUST SEE if you’re looking for something more than run-of-the-mill.
It’s always a little nerve-wracking when Jennifer represents retired real estate agents in the sale of their homes! Shadow Wood was one of these opportunities. It was a unique home, very much geared toward empty-nesters, and located in a popular subdivision in Pike Township. When Jennifer first saw it, she new immediately that the wallpaper must be removed, the light fixtures updated, and the extensively wooded lot cleaned up. She had the people to do it all, so that the seller didn’t need to worry about a thing from her new home inSeattle. Within a matter of weeks, that house was ready to wow prospective buyers. A good one came along about 60 days into the marketing which resulted in a clean, easy, fast, cash sale; and the former owner is now happily enjoying her retirement in Seattle, hopefully with a warm cup of coffee in hand.
