Jen was incredibly helpful and proactive in our home search. As first time home buyers she always responded to our multitude of questions, giving helpful advice and checking in with us throughout the process. She made us feel at ease and as if we were her main priority. We would highly recommend her to other first time buyers!
From the beginning Jen has been a great help when we first started looking for a new place, through multiple showings and even after the contracts were signed. She also provided a lot of great information on the surrounding areas that we were looking at, which was very helpful for us to make the right decision on where we wanted to live.
Overall we are very happy and excited for our new home, and we can't thank Jen enough for going above and beyond in helping us find it.
I met Jen while she was showing my cousin and her husband houses and I ended up living with my cousin for a while and love the house they bought. Jen, gave me her card and said when it's your time, give me a call. I remembered how she was patient and honest with her opinions about the houses we visited with my cousin. So, I made sure I kept her in mind.
Last year, my sister in law bought a townhouse and Jen was the one who helped her as well. We love her townhouse too. This year was our turn and she was the first one who came to mind. We gave her a call late last year so we have been looking for a house for a while. We would email, text and call each other but Jen made herself available all the time. We gave her a list of our wants and needs and she made sure we saw houses that fit our list. When we sent her homes that we are interested in seeing, she made sure we saw it. Again, she gave her recommendations and helped us a lot during the tours pointing out what looks ok and what looks like we will have a problem in the near future. She would call the homes' agents if we have questions, no matter how trivial they are. We probably viewed more than 50 homes in a span of 6 months and Jen was there all the way. She never pressured us at any point to make an offer that we were not ready to make. We had to stop for a little bit just because we were getting frustrated but she did not stop checking up on us and was readily available when we called her again to pick up where we left off.
All in all, Jen helped us find our dream home. We are very grateful for all her help, giving her precious time when we need to see her. Even now after we have moved in more than a month, she still checks up on us and make sure everything is ok with the house. We love her and her work ethics. We will surely give her name to family and friends needing help finding their dream homes too.
Jen Coyte was very helpful meeting with us many times to review a number of properties. When we wanted to revisit a site or add new locations, she was always happy to accommodate us. Both my wife and I highly recommend her!
I can’t say enough good things about Jen Coyte at Coldwell Banker. Jen was first rate in every regard – viewing homes, bidding on a home, working with the sellers’ realtor, coordinating with lenders and escrow, and completing the transaction.
Jen and I probably viewed over 20 homes in a span of nearly 10 months. She always made time to show me homes that fit my busy schedule including; weekends, mornings, evenings… whenever a home was listed. Jen never pressured me to make a bid and always assured me we’d find the perfect home soon.
I eventually bid on a home and Jen told me everything I needed to know to be successful (pre-inspection, structuring the bid, closing etc.). Now I’m about to live in a beautiful, charming house in the neighborhood I wanted.
Jen is always positive and has a strong rolodex of other resources if needed (movers, handyman, attorneys, lenders etc. etc.).
If you’re considering buying or selling a home, I would highly recommend Jen.
My wife and I needed to find a place to live in the Chicago area within 60 days. Jen quickly pulled together dozens of listings for us to view and made herself available for multiple phone calls. Jen also made herself available to personally show us around to many properties in search for the perfect one.
Jen made the moving process extremely easy on my family and I would highly recommend her for your next purchase/sale.
Jen did a great job for us. We moved to South Carolina shortly after we listed our house. Jen became our go-to contact for everything that had to be done to satisfy the contract. She was very responsive and had the contacts to get legal and other necessary work completed on the house. She frequently checked on the house and contacted us to keep us up to date on the market and the transaction. Her superb communication and liaison support got the house sold.
Jen was my my realtor who helped my wife and I sell our townhome and then locate our new house where we live today. She knows the western suburbs very well and showed us different houses in our price point. We appreciated her sitting down to listen to what our needs were and she found us those which matched our wish list. We could count on reaching her anytime of the day which was especially useful as we reached closing on both of the houses. I'd recommend Jen, she knows the market and is very helpful each step of the way.
In from out of town for a long weekend, we needed to have a home by the time we left. In one day we must have looked at 15-20 places - and then she gave us "homework" for that night. After a second day of viewing as crazy as the first, once we chose the home we wanted, she had the inspectors and a mortgage people on it pronto.
Also used her to sell the place - and in a down market she worked her butt off! And once again, had us in contact with the all people we needed.
Her Chicago connections are UNREAL! (As is her work ethic.)
I had a different realtor prior to getting Jen Coyte. For 4 months, the first realtor (a well-known Elmhurst realtor at a well-known Elmhurst firm) put little effort into selling my home. I took my home off the market. A few months later, I decided to try again with a different realtor. Jen Coyte was the complete opposite of the first realtor. She put her all into selling my house. Before the house went on the market, she was busy making phone calls and contacting real estate colleagues. Only a few hours after the house went on the market, Jen called me to tell me that some people wanted to see the house that same day. Then, that evening, Jen called me to tell me that the people who saw the house made an offer. Yes, all on the same day!!!
Between the time that the offer was made and the closing, Jen was so helpful with everything that needed to happen. There was some weirdness with the appraisal but she got it all straightened out. When the buyers' loan approval took longer than expected, Jen was very reassuring. (She knows the processes well and assured me that everything would work out...and it did.)
I heartily recommend Jen Coyte to all who are looking to sell their homes!
