She immediately immersed herself in knowing us so that we genuinely felt cared for as people beyond clients ... Many agents are taught how to relate as a good sales strategy ... Jen built our relationships on the basis of sincere interest in us, to the point that we are now good friends ... Simultaneously, she carried herself as a supreme professional, at all times, listening, sharing, educating, deferring, and, of course, leading us with her well honed expertise at appropriate moments ... her excellent timing a direct result of getting inside our thoughts and feelings, our belief systems, our excitement and fears ...
