“Coming from the UK, everything about the house buying process was new to us...even the terminology used! Both my husband and I were delighted to have Jenny guide us through this process. Finding your broker to join you on this emotional journey is a big deal and Jenny took us through each step with honesty, integrity, time, clear communication and a good sense of humor! It doesn’t end with the sale either, Jenny provided us with a list of local contacts from handymen, plumbers, chimney sweeps, gardeners and stayed in touch during the move. This is the third house we’ve bought in our lifetime and for us Jenny wins hands down as the broker i’d recommend to others!“ - Sarah A.
“I'm glad to give Jenny the highest possible rating based on our experience with her when purchasing our first home in 2017. Jenny is professional, great to work with, knowledgeable and was a valuable partner through the ups and downs of the process. Should we find ourselves in the market again, we'll be working with Jenny.“ - Aaron F.
“Jenny is easy to work with and has a very positive upbeat personality. She is well informed and takes her job very seriously. She sold our house! We would definitely recommend Jenny!“ - Mara T.
“Jenny worked with my family and me to find our home in Scarsdale. As we were first time home buyers and have been living in Manhattan for years, we knew very little about the process and what to expect. In short, Jenny was amazing. She was knowledgeable about the market and made herself informed through research where she was not totally knowledgeable. She made herself available to my wife and me on weekdays and weekends for questions and follow up. Further, she has a whole network of lawyers, mortgage brokers and more that she brings to bear for her clients when they need them. Perhaps most importantly, she is a good and honest person.“ - Brian B.
“My wife and I were looking for a "needle in a haystack" property that could accommodate a single level (ranch) house within walking distance to the Town of Larchmont and the Larchmont train station. Jenny found the needle. We bought a knockdown 100 year old house on a beautiful 1/2 acre+ lot, knocked it down and built out dream home. Thank you Jenny for understanding our needs and working hard to satisfy them.“ - Howie K.
Before switching to the real estate profession, she was a Social Worker in the New York City public schools for many years. Working with children and their families, teachers and administrators has sharpened Jenny’s natural skills of being able to discern any situation and tailor her strategy based on a client’s personality and needs. She’s incredibly sensitive to the stressful process of buying and selling and is a very useful and empathetic support for her clients to count on.
Jenny oversees every aspect of home selling and buying from assisting in the professional photos, to staging, to attending inspections and much more. And the relationship doesn’t end there. Ask any of her clients, Jenny is constantly connecting her new home owners with others in their neighborhood, helping them find the right nursery school or gardener or just giving them recommendations for favorite restaurants. She loves what she does, brings passion to every deal and is a pleasure to work with.
10 Tips for Downsizing Your Home
"Moving is a physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausting event for many people, whether you're young or you're old," Snyder says. It's not often something you want to do by yourself. If you can't lean on your community for assistance, professionals such as Snyder can manage the process. You can also ask your real estate agent. "I've found movers, an online auction company to help sell furniture," says Jenny Jaffe, a real estate agent based in New York's Westchester County. "Leaning on your agent is really helpful." Coming full circle: Keep your spirits up with a good attitude. There's so much to look forward to about a downsize. With less space, you will have much less maintaining to do. In exchange for having less to clean and less to fix, you'll have more time and more money to spend on other parts of your life. Not a bad deal! Overwhelmingly, the experts interviewed for this article agree that those who downsize find themselves on an exciting and happy adventure, unburdened by physical possessions and home maintenance obligations. It's your chance to start fresh. "I would keep reminding yourself when you're feeling stressed to think of it as, this is my next phase," Jaffe says. "This is an opportunity to have a new change in life."
