President | Jennifer Ames Chicago
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
A fifth-generation Chicagoan with 18 years experience in residential sales, Jennifer Ames is Chicago’s No. 1 residential real estate agent (as of June 2012) based on closed sales. The secret to her success is no secret: she is highly detail-oriented, offers her sellers frank advice about what they need to do to get their home ready for sale, sets a new standard with the quality of her marketing, knows the city like the back of her hand and is a skilled negotiator. Oh, and she also rarely sleeps!
Jenny is supported by an energetic team of sales and client care professionals who share her vision. “One of the things that sets us apart is that our team operates like a luxury boutique, offering highly personalized service coupled with the benefits of Coldwell Banker, the world’s leading real estate company,” Jenny says. The results of this strategy speak for themselves: Jenny and her team have sold more than $90 million in the first half of 2012.
In addition to taking care of her clients, Jenny makes time to speak to Realtor audiences across the nation and to serve on several charitable and civic boards in the city. Although work-life balance is always a challenge, Jenny makes a point to recharge her batteries with travel, fly-fishing, gardening, and most importantly, spending time with her husband and three boys.
