Jennifer is a Realtor who knows how to work hard, focus on the task at hand and get the job done. She likes to "make it happen" with a smile. She combines her knowledge and passion for real estate with the sales and marketing she received from working 11 years in the music business at Virgin Records. She understands the process of buying, selling, renting and moving is both challenging and rewarding. By combining her clients' input with extensive research, Jennifer provides a 360 degree view of the real estate market as it relates to each of her clients' needs. The result is a highly focused, tailored and effective personalized plan.
Jennifer lives with her husband and two daughters in Budlong Woods. Her children attend two different Chicago Public Schools and so while Jennifer juggles homeownership, motherhoood and a career in acting, she knows about commitment and will always give the people she's with 100%. Jennifer takes pride in her work ethic and loves being surrounded by family, friends and good food. She also volunteers as a cantor at St. Hilary Parish.
She grew up in Glen Ellyn as the youngest of 5 with four older brothers and has lived in Chicago for over 20 years in many different neighborhoods including Bucktown,Ukrainian Village, Buena Park and North Park.
I had a great experience and great outcome working with Jennifer. She takes her work personally. She takes pride in your work. She pays attention to the details. In all business but especially a real estate transaction, the details matter. She communicates frequently and in the right level of detail. When things were not clear to her, she asked questions to gain clarity and avoid confusion down the road. She was tough when that was required. While advocating for me, she was fair and reasonable. She found the right way to challenge me and the buyers. She appears to enjoy her work â?? the inconveniences to her (and there were many) did not become inconveniences to me. Perhaps the best compliment is that I would not hesitate to refer Jennifer to friends and family.
Jennifer was a dream come true. She took the time to really listen and understand our needs and wants, and helped us sort through all of the possible solutions. Her warmth and tact helped us through a number of set backs and challenges in this very tough market. Her passion and vision for what homes could be is only matched by her practical wisdom and understanding of how the housing market and negotiation process works. Jennifer's friendly manner and cool under pressure attitude make her an ideal partner in the home buying process.
We could not have had a better experience with Jen. As first time home buyers we had all of the questions, all the concerns, and a huge amount of anxiety around spending so much money. Jen was a huge gift in that she answered all our questions, kept us calm, and was an absolute bulldog with the other lawyers, realtor, and anyone else who wasnâ??t getting back to us. If you donâ??t have a realtor, hire Jen. If you already have someone, fire them and hire Jen. You wonâ??t regret it.
We had a wonderful experience working with Jen, both on the sale of our condo and the purchase of our new home. She listened well to what we were looking for in a house, and then went above and beyond to help us find the right one. When it came time to sell, everything went very smoothly and we had a great offer just after one day of showings. We will definitely recommend Jen to our family and friends!
Jen is and incredibly thoughtful, intelligent and empathetic person and realtor. I was a first time home buyer, but Iâ??ve walked through the process with family and can confidently say that Jen will go above and beyond for her clients. One of her many strengths is that sheâ??s an incredible listener. During a stressful process where youâ??re likely to be making one of the more financially significant decisions of your life, she will not only listen to your concerns, but address them. She would never disregard your deal breakers or worries, regardless of how big or small. Jenâ??s level of expertise made me feel safe and calm in a situation that would have otherwise caused me a great deal of stress, and I canâ??t recommend her enough. She kept her cool during a rapid-fire close, and I couldnâ??t be more grateful. About 5 months later, and I couldnâ??t be happier with my home and with my decision to put my faith in Jen and Dream Town.
Jen was absolutely incredible to work with! She went above and beyond to not only find me my dream home, but also to quickly sell my condo! Iâ??d recommend Jen to anyone who is looking for a dedicated partner who listens, endlessly scours the markets, goes the extra mile and makes it fun along the way.
I have bought and sold at least a dozen houses over the years--in California, Arizona, Oregon, Massachusetts, and Illinois. I have never had a real estate agent as outstanding as Jennifer Cudahy. She is, quite simply, the best agent I've ever worked with--a true professional, smart, skilled, positive, energetic, helpful, generous. She's someone who really understands the Chicago real estate market from every angle. And above all, she's a wonderful and delightful person. She handled the recent sale of my condominium under less than ideal conditions. Like many real estate transactions, it was not without its unexpected difficulties (none of which originated with Ms Cudahy, I should emphasize, but were the results instead of the inexperience of a couple of prospective buyers). She handled the situations with extraordinary aplomb and professional skill, guiding the process throughout and ultimately succeeding is a very satisfactory sale. Her advice was always right on the mark. And her commitment to the project never wavered. She is a clear communicator with a good sense of humor (very important to me) who always seemed available and ready to work nearly 24/7. I can't recommend her more highly.
Jennifer was a tireless champion for us and left nothing undone. She listened to our requests and delivered well beyond our expectations. Her knowledge of the market was up to the minute and deep. She was more than generous with her time and conducted our business together with grace and professionalism.
Jennifer was pleasure to work with from start to finish of the selling process. She provided alot of insight into selling my property and support to finalising the sale. Jennifer went above and beyond whenever I needed anything. There was no job too big or too small. I would highly recommend Jennifer.
Great suggestions for selling the house. Took personal interest and even baked cookies to make the house smell like a HOME. Will highly recommend Jennifer to anybody ....
Jen was integral to help me get my dream house. Super fun to work with and very helpful with finding me an attorney, an inspector and other services. She was a great communicator and always very responsive. I'd love to work with her again in the future!
