"Jessica was everything you could hope for in an agent and more! We live on the other side of the country and were going through a bunch of very difficult life transitions. Jessica made the process of selling a house totally stress free from start to finish. She helped communicate with the tenants we had living in our condo throughout the process and was able to negotiate a deal that was significantly better than the identical (and maybe even more polished) condo right next door. She even made it so that the gap between closing and our tenants leaving was non-existent which meant no lost income! She also went above and beyond by personally (with help from her husband) removing furniture and other stuff the previous tenants had left behind. She is amazing." - Alex
"Jessica Coulson was referred to us by a friend as someone who would be able to walk us through the home buying process as first time buyers, and we are beyond thrilled to have now completed the entire process with her guiding us. She was available at all time throughout the day and night, weekdays and weekends, and was extremely accommodating to our busy schedules. Her down to earth personality and personal touch on everything she does is beyond what we could have hoped. We will without a doubt recommend her to anyone who is asking for help, and will again come to her for help with out next move/sale/purchase when the time comes." - Tom
"Jessica seamlessly walked us through the home buying process. She was helpful and responsive the entire time. She created spreadsheets to help us estimate our costs and even helped us rent our apartment. We couldn’t have asked for a better partner in the process." - Grace
"Jessica was the prefect agent and made our home buying process completely seamless. The whole time, Jessica made it feel like we were her only priority and that she was completely on our team. She listened to our needs, provided helpful guidance throughout the process, and kept us informed throughout the entire process. Jessica created useful tools for us to track and compare the homes we saw. She was an incredible partner and I'd rely on her for any real estate transaction in the future." - Ryan
"I wanted to sell my condo in Chicago and I live on the west coast. I’ve tried to sell it before and had to delist due to lack of interest. Jessica went over and above what most agents do. She got my place fixed up and ready to show, meticulously determining what needed to be done, getting multiple quotes and managing the entire process. I could not have done this being remote. Then, she hosted many open houses and generated quite a lot of traffic. She landed an offer in less than 2 months with a close a month later. She also completely managed the close. I’ve worked with multiple agents before and Jessica is by far the best. I highly recommend Jessica to everyone in Chicago. I don’t think you can find a better agent." - Samir
Jessica is thrilled to be pursuing her passion for helping others with their important real estate decisions. Everything she has done up to this point has led to it. After earning a bachelor’s degree from the Cornell School of Hotel Administration and a master’s degree in Real Estate Development and Entrepreneurship from Cornell University, she enjoyed a 10-year career across management consulting and real estate private equity.
While she thrived in the consulting environment, her passion for working with people and her desire to be the master of her destiny prevailed, and in 2018, she made a seamless transition into residential real estate. Having moved ten times in a decade, she empathizes with clients who are looking to sell their homes or make the most important purchase of their life. Her firsthand experience and passion for helping others are what inspired her to go into residential sales from commercial real estate. Jessica thrives on building trust-based relationships and working with clients to support them as they make important financial and lifestyle decisions.
To hit the ground running, Jessica started her career in residential sales with one of the top-selling residential teams in the country. As a team member, she participated in both listing and buyer sales, serving the needs of her diverse clientele at a wide range of price points. She especially enjoys helping home sellers understand how to maximize the price they can get for their home through staging and utilizing an analytical process to estimate the market value of their property accurately. With buyers, her goal is to be a good listener, efficient with their time while ensuring that they make smart long-term decisions with each purchase. Jessica feels very blessed to have worked with a fantastic team of experienced and caring colleagues who support her clients throughout their entire real estate journey.
As she takes her career to the next level, Compass is an ideal fit. The superior quality marketing, technology and tools help her to better serve her clients in today’s highly competitive global market.
Jessica grew up in Glenview, Illinois, but has lived in New York, Los Angeles, and the city of Chicago her entire adult life. She and her husband live in the vibrant West Loop with their daughter, Mia, and dog, and they love all that city living has to offer, especially trying out new restaurants and taking their dog to the park. She maintains balance by playing competitive soccer, and when she can sneak away, exploring the world.
