““I feel very fortunate to have gone through 2 large real estate transactions with Jennifer and her team. As we all know selling your house can be a stressful time but working with Jennifer made it a painless experience. Not only did both my houses sell very quickly but both for well over asking. Her marketing, knowledge of the market, relationships with other realtors and excellent negotiating skills make this a win, win for everyone involved. Also if you are looking for a realtor who has real integrity then look no further. I cannot endorse JPS and team enough!”” ~
“Jennifer recently helped us find our home in Los Angeles. As first-time-buyers in the difficult housing market of 2017, we were terrified by the bidding wars, cash offers and properties selling for way above asking price. Jennifer walked us through the process from start to finish. She helped us explore our options and identify our priorities. In a competitive market like this, you have to act fast which is already daunting to say the least. Jennifer was available at all times, ready to work with us whenever we were to submit a competitive offer. Of all the homes we saw, we ended up buying the house that best suits our needs, in our favorite neighborhood, so we could not be happier. It can be a seemingly long journey though, so it was key to have a realtor on our side who we could trust. Thank you, Jennifer!” ~
“Jennifer Parker-Stanton just sold my house. All I can say is WOW! Selling your home is a stressful event no matter who you are. But If you want the process to go smoothly and with as little stress as possible, then Jennifer is the agent for you. Her guidance and experience were invaluable in getting my house sold. The marketing was brilliant. The photographer she selected took absolutely beautiful photos that really showcased the property. Not bragging here, but I had 11 offers on the house and I credit Jennifer with that outstanding response. Additionally, she didn’t just bring the offers, she closed the deal. Sweet! She is not only a great Real Estate Agent, but a great person too! You will not be disappointed.” ~ Craig A.
“Our love for Jennifer knows no bounds. Not only did she help us navigate through our first time home buying experience but she also got us successfully through a bidding war where we still walked away feeling as though we got a good deal and more importantly – we won the bidding war! We have stayed in touch and actually feel like more than just purchasing a house, we gained a friend. She has incredible taste. Is thoughtful, knowledgeable and knid. Good at keeping us calm in a high-pressure situation. All around a one-of-a-kind. Bascially a unicorn.” ~ Meg H. and Matt G.
“We had a great experience with Jennifer. She worked so hard to help us find the house we wanted. We’re now up in the Bay Area wishing we had an agent like her.” ~ Karen W.
“I worked with Jennifer selling a big house and downsizing into a new one. It was a difficult market and Jennifer was wonderful and very supportive and compassionate. She is great.” ~ P.J.E.
“I recently had the pleasure of using Jennifer as a realtor and was about to post a review when I saw another .... review. OUR experience with her was easy, congenial and professional! Our situation was all the more difficult because we had moved from the area. But this and my occasional stressful freak out never flustered Jennifer. She approached every conversation with tact and understanding. In fact I have since recommended her to several friends, one who recently closed on a property. I deal with demanding and aggressive personality types all the time in my field; it was so refreshing to work with such a delightful professional, especially when dealing with a very personal transaction like the sale of ones home. Thanks for making it all GOOD Jennifer!” ~ Julie A.
“We had the great fortune to have Jennifer as our real estate agent last year when we sold a condo and bought a house. She very quickly came to understand what we were looking for in a new home and didn’t waste our time with inappropriate properties. She has a ton of valuable information about the market, how it works, and when to move on a bid. She brought us to our current home, which we could not be happier with, and helped us make a great deal quickly and efficiently. And in addition to all of this, she’s got a great sense of humor and is a lot of fun to work with. We cannot recommend Jennifer more highly; she’s the best.” ~ Paul Z.
“Jennifer pulled out all the stops to help me sell my home in Pasadena and purchase the home of my dreams in Los Angeles. She is very knowledgeable about the market in this area and savvy about the strategies necessary to get the best possible outcome. I’ve worked with other real estate agents in the past and appreciate Jennifer’s negotiation skills, communication skills, and professional integrity. She’s also a joy to have around!--She made a potentially stressful situation much more bearable. Too bad we won’t be buying or selling property anytime soon as she’d be the first person we’d call.” ~ Darryl Y.
“We worked with Jennifer to help us find our dream home and she succeeded. She’s diligent yet doesn’t make you feel pressured and she’s totally honest in her opinions which we found very refreshing. We always felt she had a our best interests in mind and represented us as buyers with the utmost professionalism. If you are in the market for a mid-century modern (or otherwise) home, Jennifer is your gal. She has great taste and is well connected...a key factor in this market where great MCM homes seem to have a feeding frenzy around them when they hit the market. Jennifer is on top of her game and we highly recommend her both as a buyers and sellers agent.” ~ Van W.
“Jennifer is a fantastic real estate agent. She helped me through a long process of loosing out on three homes and then finding my dream home three years ago. She is smart, energetic, enthusiastic, dedicated and very detailed oriented. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent to buy or sell any property. And on top of all that she is fun!” ~ Carol L.
“Jennifer sold my house in Pasadena after I moved away to San Francisco. She handled everything for me, since I was out of town, and she was great at communicating every detail throughout the process. She is not only a consummate professional, her care for her clients’ needs and concerns sets her apart from the rest. She understands the human aspect of buying an selling a home, which can often be emotional and stressful, and she’s also just really fun to work with. HIGHLY recommended.” ~ Jennifer K.
“We needed to sell out Pasadena condo, and it needed to be done quickly. Jennifer had already sold two units in our complex, at or above list price, and in less than two months! Other units in the complex were languishing on the market for much longer than that, and going through price reductions to try to entice buyers. We had no doubt that Jennifer was the right agent for the job. We sold our unit within 6 weeks, at list price. Jennifer made the whole process straightforward and understandable, and didn’t shirk from answering our myriad questions. Definitely top notch and highly recommended!” ~ Neil & Linda P.
“Jennifer has helped me with two real estate transactions and I would highly recommend her. She is a pleasure to work with. She is very patient, reliable, friendly and knows real estate. She takes the time to explain things to you and always makes you feel important. I would not hesitate in using her again, and hope to in the near future. She is great.” ~ Erin B.
“Conscientious, thorough, likeable, and trustworthy. Did I mention she has great taste too? Real Estate Agents get a bad rap, and some deservedly so. But Jennifer Parker Stanton is a delightful real estate professional who makes shopping for a home a joy not a chore. She seemingly takes great pleasure in matching people up with their home, and didn’t mind being peppered with anxiety -aced questions by this nervous first time home-buyer. I really would recommend using her; she made a pretty stressful step not seem nearly so scary. And Deasy/Penner is so cool... love them.” ~ Leanne T.
“Jennifer showed me a vast range of homes, and really gave me an insightful and refreshingly honest assessment of each one. Highly recommended!” ~ James R.
“Jennifer went above and beyond helping get the house repaired and staged prior to going on the market.”” ~ Jeff W. and Mark P.
“I am sitting here basking in the beauty of my sun-filled home. Had my singing lesson early this morning on my new piano. Now listening to Pandora. My life has changed in a wonderful new way. And it never would have happened without the two of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.” ~ Jerry K.
“Hey Jennifer - Just working on the house having fun then went up to Highland Park and I am eating an amazing sandwich. Made me think of you and all the help you were and just had to say thanks!” ~ Julian B.
