As an expert at selling real estate-owned properties, Alice Jennett often works with transactions that are anything but warm and fuzzy. Yet throughout her 30 years in the business, she has never failed to make a positive difference in the lives of her clients through her attention to detail, honesty and commitment to customer service.
Before making the switch to real estate, Jennett held jobs as an information specialist with both the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Lockheed Aircraft and as a third-grade teacher in the Chicago public school system. Her experience in both professions led her to gain exceptional listening and customer service skills, and she eventually decided to apply those skills to real estate. After starting her career on Chicago’s South Side, she eventually went on to earn referrals throughout the city and neighboring suburbs. Jennett spent the first half of her career with a focus on general listings before moving on to work as the listing agent for real estate-owned properties.
Jennett applies both a fun and process-driven approach to working with clients. It’s her dedication to getting the job done that has led the Chicago Association of Realtors and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago to recognize her with several honors throughout her career. Although she entered real estate on a whim, Jennett has never looked back since. “I’ve been a dedicated, full-time agent from the first summer that I was just going to try it out,” she says. “It’s been a ‘real’ job from day one.”
Jennett enjoys active participation in several professional and community organizations. She’s a former president of her local chapter of the Women’s Council of Realtors, and she has served on the board of directors of the Chicago Association of Realtors. Additionally, she once served as chair of the housing ministry at the Trinity United Church of Christ.
