A Message From Jennifer Thomas

The real estate world is full of agents, that’s for sure.  So, how does the consumer (you!), decide who to choose to provide the professional and trustworthy guidance necessary for managing your moves?

What I realized shortly upon entering the world of real estate is that there is a world of difference (perhaps an era!) among us agents.  Real estate has changed dramatically in the last 20 years, even in the last year, and it will continue to change, this is a given.  Nowadays, 97% of real estate transactions begin with online searches; technologies have changed the business all the way from an initial home search to home close, all the way from contemplating selling to a successful close on a home.  Importantly, as the technological tools become ever sharper, we agents must as well!

I am an agent who embraces these centerpiece technologies, but I also bring the necessary linchpin, the human side, the side that works to understand clients’ goals, to communicate with transparency, and to work towards achieving and exceeding client goals every day.

Prior to entering real estate, I worked as a successful professional in sales management and business development for over 20 years.  I am adept at analyzing a marketplace and understanding consumer action.  I have also spent several years as a tennis coach.  I currently coach at Oak Park River Forest High School. As someone who once participated competitively and someone who coaches others in a sport, I realize that the skills I have learned from sports and coaching translates well to working with my clients in real estate—strategic pursuit combined with hard work helps to achieve dreams and goals.

As a longtime resident of Oak Park and River Forest, I believe my familiarity and love for these communities energizes my work within and around them.  Despite our “imperfect “weather, I love living here and I love sharing my passion for Oak Park, River Forest with clients. These are unique communities that abound with natural beauty, architectural beauty, notable diversity, and an incredible, smart, compassionate, friendly vibe.  Having raised my 3, now grown, children in River Forest and now residing in Oak Park, I am familiar with the schools, parks, programs, culture, community activities and traditions, service providers,  the list goes on and on.

Whatever area you may be interested in and whatever the price point, I will bring my lifelong skills of doing the work, careful listening, dedication to excellence, and relentless enthusiasm to work for you. Whether you are buying your first home, downsizing from your last one, investing, renting or anything in between, I would love to be your trusted agent.  Let’s get together; I would love to learn about you and how I may help you achieve your real estate goals!

Jennifer Thomas Client Testimonials

Jennifer is amazing! For the better part of 2 months we saw dozens of properties and she was there for me every step of the way through closing. She has great knowledge and provides excellent insight throughout the home buying process. Jennifer is not a pushy salesperson or agent and only wants to help you find something that works for you rather than nudging you in the direction of a quick sale. You will not be disappointed with Jennifer as your agent!
