"Wonderful experience working with Jenn! Home purchase was done entirely from another city and Jenn was incredibly helpful, thorough, knowledgeable, gave very sound and reliable advice and just made for a smooth and seamless experience. She really helped easy the concern of making a purchase from afar and often went above and beyond to help get the job done - not to mention additional asks outside of the job! She is a true and trustworthy professional and exceptional to work with -- would do it again in a heartbeat."
"I highly recommend Jennifer McDonald to everyone who wants to buy a condo. It was my first time to buy a condo. She was great at explaining every step clearly, and helped me to buy a beautiful place, for much less than the top bidder. After the deal was signed, she went above and beyond to help through some very tricky situations. She is passionate about her job and also a fun person to work with."
"Jenn helped my wife and I purchase our first home, and we had an unbelievably positive experience while working with her -- we'd probably be living with my in-law's right now, if it weren't for her.
After we got 2 months notice to move out of our old rental apartment, Jenn helped us to navigate the competitive real estate market in Cambridge, MA. Her experience regularly shone through during the process, which made the whole thing much less stressful than it would've otherwise been. Not only did we end up with the condo of our dreams, but we got it done within our preferred timeline, at what feels like a very reasonable price, all things considered.
Jenn was responsive and forthright, yet very friendly. She showed us a range of places that matched our list of 'must haves', while simultaneously helping us to refine that list in a more informed manner.
We'll definitely be calling Jenn the next time we're ready to enter the market!"- Joel B.
"Jenn was great.
We were first time buyers and she made the process easy to understand. She was super responsive and from our first conversation to an accepted offer took a month (which, even in the Boston real estate market, is fast!).
In addition to her skill, she's also a delightful person, and was a complete pleasure to work with. I recommend her without reservation." - Adam G.
"Jenn is a gem. She is wonderful to work with, very timely, responsive, and well informed. She is also part of a great team of real estate agents, and they work together very well to provide a robust array of support. I would work with Jenn again in a heartbeat (although she found us our dream home, so I'm hoping not to move anytime soon!) Work with her!"
