With a broad range of knowledge of the city she knows and loves, Jen Romolo enjoys working throughout the neighborhoods, rather than targeting one specific area. Because of this, she can advise clients on the best markets and attractions throughout. Serving buyers, sellers and investors around Chicagoland, Romolo, a broker with @properties and a Zillow Premier Agent (who was recently awarded “Best of Zillow”), is a longtime city resident with over 10 years of real estate experience under her belt.
After joining the real estate industry while earning her undergraduate degree, Romolo made the leap to broker with the encouragement of her aunt, who had been in the business for 20 years. Since getting her start, she has earned a reputation as a genuine, honest and easy-to-talk-to professional who always has her clients’ best interests in mind.
This year, despite the pandemic, Romolo ranked among the top 5% of Chicago brokers (according to MLS InfoSparks data) for the first time. “I have always been an intuitive person. My buyers know that I understand their needs and that we have the same goal,” she says, adding that every transaction begins with a consultation so all parties are on the same page.
In an ongoing effort to maintain a human quality to her work, Romolo hand-picks listings for her buyers instead of relying on automated searches based on loose criteria. “I love the challenge of trying to find the perfect place that caters to my clients’ needs and aesthetics,” she shares. “To the benefit of my sellers, I have always had an analytical mind and I enjoy the process of pricing, marketing and securing the best possible buyer for my clients. In addition to my own work with my clients, my company provides top-notch marketing materials and gives my sellers and I a lot of support throughout the process.”
Outside of work, Romolo enjoys reading, seeing music, riding her bike, spending as much time in the mountains as a Chicago girl can and taking care of her five pets.
