Jennifer is awesome! She is very knowledgeable and was extremely helpful. She helped us purchase our first home and we can't thank her enough for her time and patience with us. It would be very hard to find someone who knows the Willamette Valley housing market better than Jennifer. One example, of many, of her knowledge......she predicted our home's appraisal to the cent!! Thanks Jennifer!! -Nick & JoAnna

In short, if you are looking for a real estate broker who you can be sure will have your best interests as her highest priority, talk to Jennifer. In our opinion, you will be highly unlikely to be disappointed in her service. We had a particularly difficult set of requirements to fill in selecting a new home and feel we really lucked out when we found Jennifer. We are a family of 3, with the 3rd member of the family being a 28 year old quarter horse with many special requirements. We worked remotely (from Alameda, CA) with Jennifer for almost a year, with several visits to the Corvallis, Albany, Monmouth, and Dallas areas to view properties with her. Although, it would have been easy for her to act primarily in her own best interest and sell us on something that left us to deal with the problems, we found that she did just the opposite. We quickly realized Jennifer was truly focused on our best interests, from pointing out issues with houses and properties that would have completely escaped us, to dealing with issues we encountered with some of the sellers and/or their agents. After finding the property we wanted, in the community we wanted to live in, it turned out to be a very difficult deal to put together (due to some permit issues that were not discovered until we were in the process of making an offer). Her local knowledge and negotiation skills saved our bacon numerous times during the roughly 5 month closing process (which included the sellers acquiring permits for some major additions that had been done without permits). Thanks to Jennifer's diligence to her clients and her process expertise, we are now happily living in our new home near Corvallis. Through all of the ups and downs over nearly a year, she always kept a positive outlook, she never lost confidence that she would help us find and secure the right property for us, she stood by us when it would have been much easier to walk away and her spirit in that regard infused us with that same positive outlook. She is a truly professional real estate broker. Less ... More

We loved working with Jennifer. We were relocating from out of state, and the differences in our realtors couldn't be greater. Jennifer wins hands down. She made the process so easy, and she always responded very quickly. She helped navigate and direct us towards the neighborhoods that we were looking for being as we knew nothing about the state coming into it. She found us an amazing home, in a wonderfully welcoming neighborhood, and for an incredible price, too! While we know we weren't Jennifer's only clients, she always made us feel as though we were!

She was an incredibly patient and knowledgeable professional. It was our first time going through the home sale process and Jennifer was extremely gracious in taking the time to answer all of our questions no matter what it entailed. It was never to early or to late to contact her, she always took the time for our needs, no matter how big or small they were. She was an amazing sounding board, support, professional and friend! I would recommend her to ANYONE looking to buy or sell a house. We couldn't be happier with her services! Less ... More

Jennifer helped my wife and I find and purchase our first home. As first-time home buyers, we had loads of questions for her at all times. She was always quick to respond with useful information, and she never seemed to get annoyed with us despite the constant pestering. Jennifer also showed us many, many houses. We were constantly researching and adding our own houses to the houses she had picked for us. Again, no problems, no annoyance- she would graciously get all the information lined up and schedule viewings for us. She was also excellent in indicating when she thought a house had a problem, and did so in a way that did not reflect badly on the sellers or on my wife and I's thoughts or hopes about a particular house. Jennifer was also incredibly helpful when we placed an offer on the house, providing recommendations for lenders, insurance, escrow, and so on. In fact, she was helpful past us purchasing the house; she was able to steer me towards utility companies, vendors, and even provided tips about where to eat and shop in our new town. Jennifer Anderson is an excellent agent, whom I would recommend without question. She is professional, personable, and very effective and knowledgeable. She made things as easy as possible for us first-time buyers, and if we need a real estate agent again for any reason, we will be using her. Less ... More

Jennifer helped us through a long, painful short sale process. If not for her expertise and persistence in working with the bank, we'd probably still be going through the process! Our situation was made more difficult as we are living abroad, but Jennifer navigated the 16 hour time difference masterfully and conducted the majority of the sale via e-mail and electronic documents. She provided regular updates of where we were in the process, even when the bank wasn't doing anything! Her knowledge of the local market really helped us get the best possible price for our home in a tough market. We appreciated all her help, her calm demeanor and her fun attitude. I highly recommend Jennifer for your Mid-Valley home purchase or sale. Less ... More

When we toured a number of homes in two different cities, Jennifer was extremely patient with us and provided insight into how different homes were built. We bought an older home and she insured we had a great, thorough inspection with any issues being addressed by the seller before we took possession. Jennifer was very quick to answer all of our questions, and is very knowledgable about the entire process. We would highly recommend her.

Jennifer never used any pressure tactics to get the listing and she remained customer-focused during the evaluation process. What is normally a difficult task of choosing an agent/broker quickly became self-evident. Jennifer handled the sale of our family home after our Father moved to an independent living facility. She handled the normal real estate processes and paperwork excellently, as one would expect of any experienced professional. What places her above the standard, competent real estate professional was her ability to masterfully deal with all the unusual twists and turns in this transaction. Both siblings were living outside of the listing town, one in Oregon and the other in Southern California. So, communication was vital and complex. Jennifer was always available and she found ways to communicate clearly and timely to all parties. She showed sensitivity and understanding to our Father who, in his 90s, was needed to help with the transaction. She respected and supported his ability to be an important part of the process. Jennifer provided the guidance and resources for all of the ancillary issues inherent in this type of sale. From the disposition of the household goods and arranging painting and repairs, to addressing the attempted theft of utilities by outside parties, she rose to each situation with solutions and results. We have been involved in real estate transactions from selling a commercial property (resort) and summer cabin in California, to buying various residences in both Oregon and California. No one lived up to the term ?full-service? like Jennifer. She personified the term, then exceeded what one would reasonably expect. She has a passion for her work and it showed throughout the entire process. Thank you, Jennifer for making a difficult life-task almost enjoyable. Less ... More

We were moving from Virginia to the Corvallis/Albany area for my husbands job. After our first visit with a recommended realtor did not go as well as we had hoped ewe were left with no home. We were giving up on the idea of buying a house. We would have to make a visit across the country in order to see more houses and this was just not an option financially. We decided to get a new realtor and hoped we would have better luck house hunting, I found Jennifer, with glowing reviews from both buyers and sellers. From the first contact Jennifer was great to work with. Very optimistic about helping us find what we were looking for. She listened to what we wanted, she broke down the different criteria and sent the houses according to those lists. When pictures were needed she got them to us promptly and answered any questions we had. If there was a question she could not answer she did some research and got the answer. I don't think we could have asked for a better person to help us find the right home. She did her job and did it very well. We had never seen the home we purchased in person, but she made the transition seamless. And when we walked into the home for the first time she had even taken the time to put together a card and nice welcome basket full of goodies! It was great to work with someone that doesn't make you feel like you are just part of the income, but an actual person/family. Less ... More

Jennifer was the best realtor for my husband and I. I have needs that required extra help for me to look at homes. She arranged the viewing of homes for sale and took care of all my needs during each excursion. She was very helpful in finalizing all the paperwork and knew what needed to be done. We had to go back and forth on the offers and she made it seamless. I would recommend her to anyone that wants a good deal and a realtor that will take care of your needs. Thank you Jennifer!

When we needed to sell a house in Albany, I asked our daughter Diane to help us choose a Realtor. Diane is a top producing agent in Portland area. She did her research, interviewed a few agents and Jennifer Anderson was at the top of her list. Diane felt she and Jennifer were alike in style. Jennifer gave us great tips about preparing the house for sale and gave no pressure to list before we were ready. She kept us updated on market conditions and the best time to sell. When we were ready, she made a visit to take pictures and put up the sign. In the back yard were a few tall weeds that were missed by the workers and a pile of cement blocks that were not attractive. When I saw Jennifer out in the back yard in her dress clothes and high heels pulling weeds and moving cement blocks in the mud, I knew that we had found a winner. She is not afraid to pitch in and help if necessary. Jennifer sold the property for a good price, more than we initially hoped for. I would recommend her wholeheartedly. She is honest, ethical and reliable. She does what she says she will do and she is available when you need her. If she is busy with a customer, she still responds and gets back to you when available. You can't go wrong with Jennifer Anderson. Less ... More

We were very happy to work with Jennifer Anderson. She was always willing to take the time and show us houses whenever was convenient for us (and we looked at a lot of them!). She was also understanding and cooperative of the unique set of search criteria that we had when looking for our home. We ended up eventually finding a place that met all of our criteria, and more. Once we found it and our offer was accepted, it was a short sale that took 7 more months to complete. Being a short sale didn't slow Jennifer down one bit. She was very comfortable and knowledgeable with the process, and she was very patient with us as buyers not familiar with short sales. Jennifer is very easy to get along with and she did a great job putting up with me (who am not always easy to get along with). Our family is now settling in and happily enjoying our new home. If someone is in need of a good agent, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jennifer. Less ... More

We moved from 3 hours away, not knowing anyone and very little about the area. Jennifer was informative, knowledgeable, personable and very professional. She was great to work with, and work she does! She LISTENS to what you want and shows you relevant properties. She is generous with her time and expertise and if she doesn't know the answers, she goes and gets them. Even after the closing we had an issue and Jennifer was there for us. Having worked with agents in the past, I can tell you she is a cut above. I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again. Less ... More

My husband chose Jennifer as our Buyers Agent based on her reviews. As for myself, I am not a trusting person especially where money is involved. I can honestly say that Jennifer exceeded any and all expectations either of us had. Jennifer sent us listings of available properties in the locations we requested and based on what we told her we were looking for, on a weekly basis. She was available at short notice to show all properties we were interested in and returned our emails or phone calls immediately. At showings, Jennifer pointed out any issues that may arise during the inspection process or appraisal to give us a heads up in what we may be dealing with. She provided maps and history of the properties. The sellers were unable to find a contractor to complete repairs for a reasonable fee and in a timely manner. Jennifer had a contractor at the property the next day and the work completed within a week. He did a wonderful, professional job. Jennifer also scheduled the inspections. Her contacts are with professionals who charge reasonable rates. Midway through the purchase process it was discovered that certain restrictions were placed on the property by the original owners. (Not the sellers). Jennifer was able to get those restrictions legally removed at no cost to us. The terms the seller wanted were cash or conventional and Jennifer negotiated on our behalf so we could finance via FHA which gave us a lower interest rate. Jennifer was present during inspection and signing. Jennifer is very personable and truly goes the extra mile to help the client find the home they are looking for and within buyers budget. We highly recommend Jennifer. Less ... More

Jennifer was the buyer's agent through the process of my husband and I buying our first home. She was wonderful about finding the easiest ways for us to communicate and answered all of our questions involving the process and explained things to us clearly all along the way. We had looked at a number of homes online, and she found us the one we fell in love with, as well as made arrangements to show us all of our 'pre-shopped' houses that we wanted to see based on our searches. She knows a lot about the area, and addressed our concerns about neighborhoods and home values to a t. I very much appreciated her no-pressure approach to showing homes, letting us find our home without feeling like we were being 'sold' a home. Less ... More

Jennifer makes a great buyer's agent as she responds quickly, finds the answers to every question you ask, and gives an honest opinion about the value of the property based on other similar properties for sale in the area. She has a great personality but doesn't overpower you with her attempts to sell you on something that is not right for you. I would totally recommend her to anyone looking for a good buyer's agent.

I was house hunting for a long time and with multiple Realtors. Many Realtors seem to want to just make a sale but I never got that impression from Jennifer. She was wonderful, supportive, and encouraging. I work full time and have three very young children and she was very understanding of my crazy schedule and availability. I would recommend Jennifer to everyone. This wasn't my first home purchase but by far the best experience.

I live an hour from Lebanon and needed to sell a residence for a relative that had recently passed away. I traveled to Lebanon on a Sunday and found Jennifer's name on a flyer for a residence that was for sale relatively close to the home I needed to sell. I blindly called her that Sunday afternoon and she dropped everything to come meet with me and my husband. I was so grateful. She was knowledgeable, courteous, and most helpful.

We were recommended to Jennifer through a friend. She was able to accomodate any means of communication we threw her way. She made sure to jump on the house we wanted and was set to be notified if anyone else took interest. We were successfully guided through the buying process. She kept her composure when dealing with the selling agent that was nowhere near as competent as her. I'd recommend anyone to Jennifer and hope to do future real estate business with her on my team.

Jennifer was honest, professional, a good listener, and extremely responsive to all communication. She facilitated many negotiation processes that ultimately ended with the right home for us for exactly the right price. It wasn't one we were even interested in at first, but her expertise showed us that it was overpriced for its comparisons, that the pictures really didn't do it justice, and it had the exact location we wanted. Jennifer helped us find our gem in the rough, helped us negotiate and finalize our purchase, and helped us with morale through the unexpectedly long loan process. She was a great listener and we always felt supported in finding our exact fit on whatever timeline it took. We couldn't be more happy with our home or our experience with Jennifer. Less ... More
