Maria B.

We were first time home buyers looking in the Northern VA area (Alexandria, Falls Church, Vienna, Annandale, Springfield). We immediately went with Jennifer after interviewing her and she exceeded our expectations. The home buying process for us went very quickly, but we never felt rushed or pressured by her to pull the trigger on any property. She was extremely helpful in pointing things out to us when narrowing our search. We were able to narrow our search quickly and eliminate properties we were initially very interested in before wasting precious time with a walkthrough due to dealbreakers that were obvious to her but not so obvious to us until pointed out. This was also extremely helpful in walkthroughs where she pointed out major issues that we wouldn’t have noticed, preventing us from making a choice that we would have certainly regretted. It made us ultimately super confident to …

This was also extremely helpful in walkthroughs where she pointed out major issues that we wouldn’t have noticed, preventing us from making a choice that we would have certainly regretted. It made us ultimately super confident to eagerly put down an offer when we did find the home that we did fall in love with. She was also very helpful throughout the closing process in taking care of all of the details without any burden on us. Everything went off without a hitch and immediately, well before any deadlines in our contracts. She put us in touch with a particular inspector that she recommends for 1st time home buyers. This aspect was extremely helpful! He walked us through every part of an very thorough inspection in which we learned a TON about our future house (basically a short course on home care that we desperately needed). Based on a lot of our friends who have been through the house buying process in this area and have had less than stellar experiences with their realtors, we know how important having a great realtor is to the house buying process. We couldn’t recommend Jennifer more! We look back and realize how freaking easy and stress free our house buying experience was when all we have heard from others is how awful the process is. We look forward to working with her in the future!

Jennifer is the consummate real estate agent and client advocate. In our initial conversation, she arrived thoroughly prepared and provided comp numbers and a clear set of steps to a successful sale. Her depth of knowledge of the market in Old Town Alexandria was the basis for an aggressive asking price. She laid out the path to a successful sale with a clear strategic approach, recommendations about what changes to the house would make a difference, how the house should be staged, and when to get the house on the market. During the preparation of the house, she also provided several resources for moving, painting, tiling, etc, which helped streamline the needed work. Laying this groundwork was key to signing a contract after only two days on the market and with a bid over the asking price. Selling a house can be stressful and challenging; working with Jennifer was not only easy, it was …

Jennifer is an exceptional professional and delivers both the sale and a great experience at the same time.

Days on Market : 0! Jennifer made every step in the process such a breeze. My wife and I left the initial meeting with her very impressed; Jennifer came prepared with recent comps and had quick and thorough answers to our biggest questions about starting the sale process. She got to work immediately in reaching out to her contacts - not only for staging, fix-up/painting, and photography - but also to other buyers' agents in her office. Her diligent work in that last aspect helped us to locate a buyer extremely early in the sales process, actually before we had to sink any money into staging, painting, or photos. She helped us navigate the offer process with helpful advice and guidance during both the offer and post-inspection negotiation stages. From initial meeting through the settlement, my wife and I were very pleased every step of the way with Jennifer's assistance. A real pleasure t…

Jennifer G.

We just closed on our home a few weeks ago and wanted to share our exceptional experience in working with Jennifer Halm and her team! We had a productive and informative initial meeting with Jennifer where we were trying to decide on our listing agent. We had done some research and met with another agent but couldn't agree on strategy/approach. Our home was a little unique - Jennifer knew the neighborhood/comps well so was prepared to have a thoughtful discussion. She was helpful in identifying reliable and responsive trades to help get our home ready for listing. As with any home sale - it's a busy time and Jennifer and her team did a fantastic job of keeping us moving and on track for a successful sale. We had a great experience and would recommend working with Jennifer.

Hemington C.

Jennifer is a fantastic real estate agent. We purchased a condo from her in 2010 and then chose her to represent us when we decided to sell several years later. We were especially impressed with her eye for staging. She gave us detailed instructions on exactly what needed to be done to best showcase our home. She was direct and honest and was able to tell us the good and bad about our home, from a buyers perspective, which allowed us to do all that we could to get the place looking great. In addition, Jennifer was always extremely responsive, which we really appreciated. We felt like no matter what came up, Jennifer was on top of things, looking out for our best interests. We can't recommend her highly enough.

Jennifer Halm is the consummate professional agent for buying and selling a home, both transactions of which she handled for us. Her expertise and local knowledge along with her ready responsiveness to us minimized the stress usually associated with shopping for and selling a home. She listened carefully to us in order to guide us to the best possible scenarios, often reminding us of our list of must-haves when we tended to get distracted. When we ran into a potential snag in our purchasing contract, she guided us through it expertly and confidently, even saving us money in the process. Jennifer's easy nature and ready smile made her a pleasant companion and partner in our life-changing journey.

Stephen H.

Working with Jennifer, has permanently raised the bar for all other realtors. Jennifer's extremely professional approach and support, provided us with an experience that was truly stress free. Her continuous communication, and regularly reaching out to share information, left us with the feeling that the entire process was informed and transparent. Having bought and sold a number of properties, working with Jennifer was a superior experience. It is without reservation and with sincere regards, that we highly recommend Jennifer Halm to be your next realtor. You will have no regrets.

Meki C.

I worked with Jennifer to buy and sell my condo in Alexandria. She is very knowledgeable about the area. In the 5 years that I owned the property, she was always available to provide recommendations, answer questions, and discuss options for selling or renting when I moved. I was out of state when she sold my property and she handled all of the details including repairs, paint, and staging. Jennifer has great pricing strategies and my unit sold over asking price in one day. I enjoyed my experience working with Jennifer and would highly recommend her to any buyer or seller.

LC P.

Jennifer is phenomenal! Home buying is so competitive in Northern Virginia, but Jennifer’s knowledge of the market and negotiating skills helped us find and win the perfect home. My husband and I knew buying a house would be a long process for us because we were so specific about what we wanted, but Jennifer was so patient and professional throughout our search. We are so fortunate to have had her as our realtor and would recommend her to anyone. If we are ever to sell or look to buy again we would work with her again in a heartbeat.

I highly recommend Jennifer Halm as your real estate agent. I found her to be knowledgeable, with good suggestions to help me sell the house, which was not the usual sale, including because I was 3,000 miles away during most of our interaction while it was on the market. She was very responsive to all my contacts and helped with suggestions on contractors and coordinating and letting them in the house while I was so far away. I believe you will be happy with Jennifer if you select her as your agent.
