"We met Jenna on Narcissus Ave in CDM in July 2017. We were always walking through houses to see what was possible for us, and had an agent looking for us within our price range. When we met Jenna, my wife and instantly connected with her. She was friendly, bright, and knowledgeable and told us we could get something done in our price range. This was a challenge, as we wanted to do the one-time property basis tax transfer from Laguna Hills to CDM, which meant we couldn’t buy a house in CDM for more than what we our home for in Laguna Hills. Not easy! The first step was Jenna helped convince us to list our in Laguna Hills, which included her coming to our to see what we were selling and to understand realistic sales price expectations. Tireless, energetic, helpful, and super responsive are words to describe Jenna. She has been so helpful with the sales process every step of the way. She has advised us countless times on sale in Laguna Hills to all steps on our Iris purchase in CDM. I couldn’t ask for more honest insight, assessment and recommendations going forward. We haven’t bought or a in 27 years and there were many times of stress and wondering if some type of deal would ever happen. Jenna was truly a resource for us as a Buyer in CDM, and a Seller in Laguna Hills; she has carried her load and more. She has learned enough about us, what we like, what we don’t like, and after a while this became easy and second nature between Jenna, me and my wife. I consider Jenna a true professional, a friend, and someone at Surterre you should be very proud to have on your team." - Tony and Sharon Domenico

"Jenna recently helped me sell my Newport Heights home. I met her at one of her houses and was immediately impressed with her positive energy, professionalism, market knowledge, and non-pressure approach. After interviewing a large number of agents I chose Jenna to market and sell my home, which she did so in a very short amount of time for top dollar. Throughout the entire process, including multiple bid negotiations and a lengthy escrow, Jenna always maintained her composure and displayed an extremely high level of professionalism, morals and kindness. I strongly recommend Jenna and would definitely use her services again. " - Roger Feldman

"We were lucky enough to be connected on a call with Jenna back in May. We were a bit familiar with the general area we wanted to purchase. Jenna was very knowledgeable of our desired area and provided us with great information, necessary facts and impressive research that helped us make an informed choice. She was never pushy or high pressure, just always happy to hear from us and show us new options. After months of enjoying her personality and professionalism she wound up negotiating our new little paradise! Jenna is top notch, I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone!" - Melissa Cavaliern

"Jenna helped us find our dream home!!! We were home shopping from afar, and Jenna went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home. She took us on virtual home tours & was available to check out new homes for us whenever we asked. She would clear her schedule whenever we came in town and walk us through lots of homes.

I highly recommend her to any home buyers in OC!" - Stephanie Adams

★★★★★
"We recently purchased a home in Costa Mesa and Jenna was hands-down, the most professional, knowledgeable, and caring agent we have ever worked with. During phase one (the home searching process), she emailed us daily with the available listings in the cities we were interested in. When it came to phase two (touring the homes), Jenna scheduled multiple viewings in order for us to maximize the day and really see what was out there. During the tours, she listened to our feedback and became familiar with the type of home and feeling we were searching for. This helped narrow the field even more. Finally, when we found our dream home (phase three: the home buying process), Jenna was incredibly awesome. She asked all the right questions and gave us the answers we needed. If there was anything she was unsure about, she would research it and get back to us in a timely fashion. Throughout escrow and closing, she was tenacious, organized, and meticulous, qualities we admire and respect. We cannot say enough great things about her and look forward to working with her again in the future. If you are beginning your search or looking for a new agent in the Orange County, California area, trust me, you will not be disappointed. Thank you for everything Jenna!" - Erica Ramadan

We closed early on our new home and the process was seamless. Jenna went above and beyond what was required and made our experience a positive one." - Jasmine Espina
