My Clients Are My Best Emissaries


"For the trustees of the Schumann Center for Media and Democracy -- and for myself as the Center's president -- I want to express our appreciation and admiration for the way you handled the sale of our building at 33 Park Street. Your hands-on management of the process was -- well, awesome. Until you took us on as a client, and then took charge down to the last detail, we were stalled and I was beginning to think we should remove the property from the market until the economy turned solidly upward, I was beginning to think we had erred in wanting to sell at this time. But after you personally visited the facility and figured out how to reveal its inherent but somewhat hidden virtues, my confidence quickly returned. Your daily attention, your swift response to our calls and needs, your honest advice, and your negotiating skills produced the offers we had hoped for and consummated the transaction much sooner than I had thought possible."

"Jennifer is a terrific Real Estate Agent who knows her stuff and knows how to get results. She is straightforward and honest about what to expect, doesn't 'sugar coat' a property to make a sale that is not right for the client, doesn't pressure her clients to bid on a property that doesn't suit their needs, etc. She sold my house in less than one day the first time I worked with her, and she nabbed my new condo for me this year, despite the odds of really serious competition from 3 other very motivated bidders who, frankly, outbid me. But we got it, due to her expert ability as a negotiator combined with an astute ability to sense the Seller's feelings.  Jenn's integrity shines through, when working with her on either side of a sale she can be trusted. I would give Jennifer my highest recommendation as the best in the business."
-- Joyce


"If you are looking for a realtor in the Montclair/Maplewood/South Orange/Bloomfield/Glen Ridge area I highly recommend Jennifer. We worked with her last year when we were moving from Brooklyn to this area. We did not know which town we wanted to live in or what type of house we wanted. Jennifer's knowledge of the area and homes was invaluable to us during the entire house hunting process. She was patient and truly cared about us and what is best for us, not her, which is tough to find in a realtor! We always felt comfortable with Jennifer during every step of the process, both in her knowledge and knowing she had our best interest at heart."
-- Melissa

"Jennifer Ley is an asset to your organization. She was a perfect fit for us and our home buying needs. She made our first home buying experience a very pleasant and smooth one. We valued her advice and input."

-- Jeff and Gen 

"Jennifer was outstanding. Selling an older house can be difficult, but she had the knowledge and negotiation skills to get us past every hurdle."

-- Alison 


"Jennifer is a topnotch Real Estate Agent who knows her business inside and out. She was there for me and my wife every step of the way during our home purchase. She is amazing to work with, and is a true professional. Jennifer deserves the highest of recommendations, and is a true leader in her field."
-- Evan

"We really liked Jennifer Ley as our agent. She did an awesome job! She is truly a great professional. Thank you!"

-- Heather and Lucio 


"She gave us 110%, even when our current deal got complicated; she kept us calm and provided us with excellent guidance. We will definitely be referring our friends to her."

-- Keith and Jennifer


"Jen was an excellent partner in the house hunting process. Her knowledge, patience, caring and enthusiasm made my entire experience very enjoyable. I was lucky to find her; if I had to do it all over again there is no question, Jen will be my agent!" (First purchase)

"I commend Jennifer for the thoroughness, practice, professionalism and good nature in conducting her business." (Sale of first home, purchase of new home 5 years later)

-- Sandra


"Jenn is the quintessential agent. She exemplifies all the right qualities in a trusted partnership....honesty and the ability to challenge her clients are what make her unique. She is as good as they get! My wife and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Montclair area." (Two purchases over 9 years, first condo now held as rental property)

- Greg

"Jennifer was our real estate agent for finding our house. She was extremely helpful through the whole process. She listened to our needs and wants for a new home and focused our search to not waste time or energy. I would HIGHLY recomend Jennifer in the future."
-- Stephen

"We learned so much from you. Your professionalism sets you apart from your peers."
-- Alfredo and Licet


"Jennifer truly went above and beyond to ensure our first home purchase went smoothly. She was always available when we had a question or needed advice, and explained each step of the process in great detail and ensured we stayed on track towards our closing. Most importantly, she acts with integrity and is extremely trustworthy, providing honest and open feedback. I knew I could always count on Jennifer to make things happen and will definitely call on her when we're ready to sell!"

Two years later: "I only made one phone call. After just one weekend on the market, we had multiple offers, all above asking the middle of a snow storm, no less. Jennifer truly is the best -- you just have to do what she says to get results!"

-- Brandt


"My wife and I hired Jennifer in the fall of 2009 to help us find and buy a home in Northern, NJ and I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking to do the same. We had an aggressive timeline and equally complicated work schedule that included overseas travel. Jennifer made herself available to us both in person and via conference calls to get the job done. She was always fully prepared with search materials and contracts. The counter party had hired a part-time agent and it really showed. Jennifer shepherded the entire process to successful closure."

-- James


"These days it is hard to find a person who takes as much pride, effort and attention to detail in their work.  Jennifer has a great deal of knowledge and experience that many other realtors do not have.  We knew she was the type of realtor and person we could trust."

 -- Steven and Maricel


"Jennifer was our agent for both buying our new house and selling our old house. Her enthusiasm, drive, knowledge and attention to detail resulted in a successful bid on our new home and an above the asking price sale of our old house within a few days after it went on the market the week
before a major national holiday. I am grateful for her moral support at numerous difficult points in each process. Jennifer also provided practical advice on what needed to be fixed in our old house to achieve the maximum return and referred quality professionals to address these issues. She even coordinated the house repairs while we were at work and made certain that everything was done correctly.

I highly recommend Jennifer Ley to anyone interested in buying or selling a home in the vicinity of Montclair." 

-- Cynthia and Mark


"Jennifer is a excellent Real Estate Agent. She worked well with the sellers agent to make our dream of owning a home come through. She is knowledgeable about the municipalities/towns she serves and the information and insights in navigating the “home buying process” is trustworthy."
-- Christopher

"You went over and beyond what was required. You made it possible for us to now own our little part of the American Dream."

-- Chris & Alicea


"We always felt confident that you were looking out for us."

-- Carrie and Jonathan

"Jennifer was at the time the only realtor in the Montclair area who had a proper online profile and webpage to look at. She is very experienced, highly professional and able to tune in completely to her clients' needs and preferences. With her help we found a house within 2 weeks / among 6 houses we looked at and closed at a very good price due to her advice for the negotiations. We will hire her again when the time comes for another move."

And they did.
-- Claudia

"I wanted to thank you for facilitating not only the personal sale of my home in Little Falls, bu professionally – the sale of our office building on Park Street in Montclair. You were highly recommended by a family friend and you proved to be everything and more.

Your market analysis on our home was so precise. Our home sold to the first couple who walked through and we closed within 30 days. Your commitment to our interests were foremost throughout the details of negotiations. 

Professionally you had a monumental task ahead of you. You accepted the office site in Montclair which had unsuccessfully been on the market for 6 months. Our Board of Trustees were very discouraged and not optimistic. But you accomplished in 5 weeks what we had not been able to do in 6 months. You negotiated a very tedious contract with a buyer and their attorney. Your ability to master personalities and leadership in the transaction resulted in a reasonable end and was truly remarkable. 

I am so grateful to have worked with you personally and professionally and admire your skills to assess a situation and your resolve to find a solution for it."
