Jennifer was very detailed about making sure we knew all the pro and con elements relating to both the house we sold and the new house we bought. She was always professional, timely and made us feel that we were her #1 clients. She reached out to her associates when answers were not readily available. Strongly recommend Jennifer.

Seller & Buyer

Jennifer went above and beyond in every facet to find a home for us. She has been so friendly, and thorough, and accommodating to our family. Being new to the area, Jennifer sent us a huge list of information and resources. She is a great communicator who doesn't miss a single detail. There's no doubt about it that I will continue to work with Jennifer for as long as I'm living in the area-- she's fantastic!

My wife and I moved to North Carolina from Chicago - first out of state move while attempting to buy a home for either one of us. We weren't quite sure where to start, but with Jennifer's help, it turned out to be a wonderful experience. From Day 1 she took a genuine interest in figuring out what our ideal home/property looks like. She demonstrated a tremendous amount of patience while we navigated the unknown. The NC buying process has its unique attributes and she made sure to educate us meticulously. She leaves nothing to chance and is very detailed in her communication. She showed up during all of our showings, walkthroughs, inspections, and at the closing. Because of all this, we accelerated our timeline and ended up moving much faster than anticipated. It's hard to find real estate agents nowadays that truly add value to the home buying process, but Jennifer proved to be a real exception. We're incredibly happy with our home purchase and we owe it all to her!

My husband and I have moved many times over the years and we dreaded going through the process of searching for property and a new home. Jennifer was very thorough taking the time to review our priorities, likes and dislikes of the past and present. She was very professional, friendly and knew the area well. In a brief time we found the perfect lot and floor plan in a new construction subdivision. The process was much less stressful than we anticipated and I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for a new home.


Jennifer treats the sale process as if she is buying her own home. She makes sure no detail is missed. She provides you with reference pricing and relevant information to make sure you are well informed while making decisions. I couldn't have been happier working with her.


Me and my wife have been looking for land for over 2 years and I've dealt with numerous Realtors. But when we found Jennifer with Coldwell Banker everything fell into place. She is a true professional with drive, dedication and motivation. She utilizes all of her resources and will always find you an answer to your questions. We wish to thank Jennifer and her staff for all that she's done for us. I can't tell you how much we appreciate all of their support.
