In a unique role as agent and neighbor, Jenn French is the perfect person to guide a client through the nuances of the local market. Ranked one of the top agents with RE/MAX Executive Realty in town, French couples her experience with access to top listings, a worldwide network, exceptional in-house marketing strategies and cutting-edge technology.
“Jenn is both a top-level professional with the skill set necessary to be successful at the highest levels, and even more importantly, an amazing person who gives her time willingly and cares about everyone whom she encounters,” stated Christopher Arienti, broker/owner at RE/MAX Executive Realty.
“I’m a natural problem-solver,” French noted with a smile. “I love all the moving parts of this business and thrive on finding creative ways to help each client realize their dreams.”
Establishing close relationships with clients is a must. Face-to-face interactions are preferred, especially as the relationship begins. Clients come to easily trust French’s “fresh eyes” when looking at properties, locally or in surrounding towns, as she is a keen interpreter of their needs.
Clients also appreciate that French is a good listener. She asks questions to determine a client’s likes and dislikes, works to understand their needs, offers different perspectives about properties to consider, and builds a thoughtful, strategic approach to home buying or selling, resulting in the most positive outcome.
“I love working with people,” French added, “and I love the process of helping transform a house, getting it ready for market and helping the homeowner locate their next home.”
In terms of buyers, French recommends three considerations: Choose an experienced local agent to guide each step of the home search and buying process; speak with a lender or secure a pre-approved mortgage to better understand one’s price range; and clearly define one’s home criteria in advance so the agent can identify the ideal home when it comes to market, as timing is crucial. For sellers, French orchestrates any professional vendors needed to ready a property for sale and seeks to understand what clients expect of the selling experience.
French prides herself on being reliable, friendly and easy to work with. Eighty percent of her business is referral-based, resulting from satisfied clients wanting others to experience the same smooth transaction.
“I know this business is stressful for my clients, and I’ll do everything I can to change that,” French said. “I believe in doing what is right for each person, and going above and beyond is just how I work.”
French recalled an instance when she returned from vacation a day early in order to assist a client to stage and organize their house to go to market, presenting the property to its best advantage.
French advises clients interested in moving out of the area that she is more than willing to drive within an hour’s distance to assist. Otherwise, she can provide a referral for another talented agent through the company’s tremendous network of professional realtors.
The RE/MAX office is conveniently located at 22 South Street, and French may be reached by cell at 617-997-2207. Visit her website at JenniferFrenchHomes.com.
