"We have interacted with many real estate professionals in both our personal and business lives and Jennifer Titus is by far the best. We could not recommend her more highly. She truly puts herself in the clients’ position, advocates for their best interest and keeps all aspects of a transaction on track with well organized followup. We met Jennifer in 2006 when we were looking for a second home in Boston while living in Ohio. From the start, her professionalism, value orientation and willingness to embrace our goals stood out. She was patient with our search providing the appropriate amount of follow-up through a two year process. This culminated in the purchase of the right property at a great value in the South End. In addition to guiding us through the purchase process, she also found tenants for the unit and provided advice on service providers and how best to address on-going issues. While on sabbatical, Jennifer provided advice on real estate transactions outside her market area with great consideration and insight. When it came time to sell our South End condo this past year, we placed our trust in Jennifer’s judgement and are literally richer for it. The unit needed some investment to get it market ready. She provided advice on which improvements to make and, more importantly, which ones not to make in order to maximize the net value to us. As this was another remote transaction, it was invaluable to us to have Jennifer provide us with local referrals and help with logistics, such as on-site evaluations with contractors. She recommended that we “stage” the unit which we initially resisted but turned out to be another great choice. Between the physical improvements and the staging, the unit was transformed. We received multiple offers at or above our ask in less than a week and settled on a price that was $150,000 above our asking price. This all occurred at the onset of the pandemic which caused the usual blips in the negotiation process to become potential deal killers. Jennifer handled the negotiations deftly managing between a nervous buyer and an emotional seller in the midst of a statewide lockdown. That we were able to close at all, at an excellent price, at the height of the crisis is largely due to Jennifer’s thoughtful recommendations, tenacious follow-up, and clear negotiation skills. Put your real estate transactions in the hands of Jennifer Titus. You will be glad you did. "

"We first met Jennifer Titus at an open house for a that she was retained to sell. We were immediately impressed by her professional manner, and the way that she dealt with every visitor to the open house. We also were impressed with the quality of her marketing materials. After a quick private conversation, we decided to ask her if she was interested meeting to discuss listing our for sale. We had the classic case of wanting to sell the most expensive house in the neighborhood and a lack of comparable properties for sale, and many brokers were unwilling to face the challenge of actually preparing and executing a sales effort. To get to the most important points, Jennifer promptly responded to our offer, and was able to create a great deal of interest leading to multiple showings of our house. She was also able to deal with the stringent demands placed upon her by our requirements for privacy and discretion, and the demands of a market that had not yet begun to show signs of strength. We not only sold the house, but such was the experience that Jennifer represented us in our search for a suitable replacement, found such a , and successfully dealt with all the complications created by the need for simultaneous closings and critical scheduling. To sum up our sale and purchase experience, it would be characterized as effective, pleasant, and as stress free as any major transaction could be. Therefore, we would unhesitatingly suggest that someone considering a real estate transaction, whether sale or purchase, consider Jennifer Titus as a prime candidate to represent their interests, both personal and financial."

"As a private equity real estate investor and former commercial broker, I can confidently say that Jennifer is one of the best brokers that I’ve worked with or encountered in any of the real estate sectors I’ve dealt in (residential, office, and industrial) across the country. She has a great grasp of her market, always puts her client’s needs first, and is exceptionally responsive and organized. Over the past five years, she has helped my wife and me sell two homes (one on Beacon Hill and one in the South End), and buy two in the South End, as our family has grown. In each transaction, she has gone the extra mile to help us better understand Boston’s dynamic and evolving residential real estate market, so that in each case we could confidently complete the transaction at hand. Beyond her high-touch, client focused work Jennifer is also a joy to work with and has a quick wit. We’ve enjoyed becoming friends with her as we’ve worked together over the past few years. "

"Thank you so much for all the help you provided to Penny and me in our recent relocation to the Boston area. Moving is always a stressful activity and you made it much easier than it could have otherwise been. I say with no reservations that you’re the best realtor I’ve ever worked with. That’s saying a lot because I’ve done a lot of real estate transactions. You are pleasant, knowledgeable, hard working, committed and tenacious when it counts most. Many of the realtors I’ve had through the years were far more interested in a commission and were not that motivated to work hard. You’re a refreshing departure from that. We’re very happy in our new home and we owe much of that happiness to you. Thanks again and please let me know if there is ever anyway we can be of help to you. "

"Jennifer Titus helped us find a new home for our expanding family while facilitating the prompt and successful sale of our previous . When we hired Jennifer to represent us, she very quickly got a sense of our very unique needs and preferences. She was always courteous, punctual, unobtrusive, professional and helpful: she was also very patient! When two years into this search she found the perfect place for us, she assisted us every step of the way and provided professional, thoughtful and personable advice. She was a master in getting our home sold in a timely fashion, for exactly the amount we had envisioned; and her team and connections made the whole daunting process of selling, buying and moving in a tight housing market seem easy and seamless from beginning to end. Our daughter Carolina came to view her as one more of our friends, and talked about her when we went away on vacation. All in all, Jennifer was a delight to work with: her professionalism, personality, experience and background make her the perfect real estate agent. We were very fortunate to encounter her at that stage in our lives. "

"I came to the realization that I was tired of paying rent and after two years of doing so in the Back Bay I decided that I wanted to buy a condo. I went to a few places to meet with people and I wasn’t taken seriously due to the fact that I was a 25-year old first time buyer. It wasn’t until I met with Jennifer in her office that I was treated like a perspective buyer and an adult. Jennifer took the time to go over the home buying process very thoroughly with me so that I understood what to expect at each stage. Her professionalism and charming personality made me feel at ease with what I thought was going to be a daunting task. She helped me find properties in my price range and I couldn’t be happier with my ultimate purchase. Her attention to detail is remarkable. She stayed in tune to every small task that needed to be completed in order for the process to go smoothly. I truly felt that she gave me her undivided attention while we were working together and that was important to me, as I felt that I was being rushed through paperwork before I met Jennifer. I am very appreciative for all the work she put into my first time home buying experience. I can’t wait to do business with her in the future and look forward to the chance to work together again. "

"Jennifer Titus is an exceptional realtor. Diligent, well-informed, and experienced, she provided unwavering support and guidance to us throughout the selling process. Jennifer developed an excellent and effective marketing strategy for our home and kept us up to date as to how our compared with similar listings. She provided helpful advice regarding how to stage our home and gave us regular feedback after showings. Perhaps most important, Jennifer provided sage and well-reasoned counsel during a challenging negotiation process. Without a doubt, if selling or buying a home in the future, we would call again on Jennifer to assist us. "

"It was certainly nice to work with you. And, thank you so much for getting my sold in such short time! The market is tough, but you delivered! I also appreciate your dedication to staying on top of things and making the sale process seamless. I would certainly recommend you to my friends. "

"I was thrilled by Jennifer’s performance and have already raved to everyone I know about her. I researched homes for over a year and in that time met a number of agents and brokers. Her first impression alone seemed to differentiate her from the rest. She was very clear and confident in promoting her skills and strengths, but never gave me any reason to doubt her sincerity or professionalism. She established high expectations, and then proceeded to deliver beyond them. I appreciated her honesty and directness in answering any question I might have had about the home buying process, the real estate market, or the nuances and ethics of the agent/client relationship. Her degree of organization and attention to detail indicated to me from the very beginning that I was in great hands. I feel very fortunate to have found Jennifer. In addition to her professional skills, she is also very sweet and caring. I'm certain that all who know her are equally charmed. It has been a pleasure working with her on my first home purchase and I look forward to working with her again one day. "

"We were so happy with Jennifer's help with our first home purchase that we didn't think twice about working with her again! From start to finish, Jennifer's thoughtful and careful attention to detail impressed us tremendously. She always worked hard as our advocate and was patient and thorough in her explanations during every step of the purchases and sale. Jennifer was always professional, yet accessible at the same time. She always kept our needs and preferences in mind to create truly personalized experiences. We highly recommend her services and certainly plan to work with her in the future.

"In late 2009, I was re-located to California and needed a real estate broker to sell my Beacon Hill condominium. Jennifer went beyond representing me as a broker given that I was across the country, she managed the entire process including having my condominium staged. Ultimately, Jennifer successfully sold my condominium in a challenging market at a great price. I have recommended Jennifer to several friends who have all experienced the same successful outcome during recent challenging markets. Jennifer is a consummate professional with an unparalleled knowledge of the Boston market. " - John S., Beacon Hill
