Jenifer is highly recommended! Throughout our lengthy negotiation process, with numerous twists and turns, she was always available to us to professionally and thoughtfully guide us in our decision making. She has been a loyal advocate, and anyone who has her in their corner will be fortunate, indeed. We were!


Jackie immediately started working on the sale. She took care of every detail while keeping me informed. She also handled the details when one buyer backed out. When the time to close was approached with no appraisal she showed the house and obtained another offer. She efficiently moved the sale forward as cash and I was able to sign all documents remotely. I highly recommend her as a buyer or seller’s agent.


Great agent! Staged our house beautifully. We had multiple offers within days. Perfect amount of communication, not too much and not to little. She went above and beyond. Highly recommend…


Jenifer was very professional and so nice to work with. She brought buyers to my home and then helped me navigate the sale. From the inspection, paperwork and closing she was kind and attentive. She gave me updates on each step of the process either by email or text. The entire process went very smoothly. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.


Jackie is an excellent agent, and quickly became a friend. She went above and beyond what is expected (she even grabbed a paint brush to finish up some trim and brought over some flowers to spruce up the yard)! She made the selling process incredibly easy bringing in a fabulous photographer and designer to showcase our home. We had multiple showings immediately and accepted a full price offer the first day. Jackie was excellent in keeping the transaction moving, handling all questions along the way and getting to closing in a timely manner. I cannot say enough about how wonderful she is. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, patient, a great communicator and she is ALWAYS available. Go with Jackie…she will exceed all expectations!!


Jenifer was patient in understanding what I was looking for in my first home. She listened to me and my family and led us all through the process. She was there every step of the way and even afterward to answer our questions. She always communicated with us quickly which was so important to us.


Jenifer was professional and knowledgeable and I will continue to use her for future deals. She showed me the types of homes I was looking for, didn’t waste any of my time.


Jenifer was awesome! She made the process smooth and offered us great information whenever we needed. She’s hands down, the absolute best realtor in this area. If you are serious about buying or selling, she’s your lady. She sold my house quickly and found me houses to purchase quickly too. Awesome, awesome, awesome person. 110% recommend.


Jackie was helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive from the start. My situation was time sensitive and she was able to assist me in achieving the necessary deadline. There were a couple situations that needed negotiation and she went to bat for me. It was greatly appreciated! She kept in contact with me and kept me updated with the home buying process. She is a true professional and I would highly recommend working with her.


Recently purchased a home with Jenifer as our realtor. She made it seamless. It was a pleasure to work with someone who understands what you want and helps you achieve it. I highly recommend her.


We have used Jenifer as our agent in several buying and selling situations, and we have been extremely happy with her advice and her handling of our affairs. She is very up to date with what’s going on in the market, and she’s very knowledgeable about property tax issues and property values. We would not hesitate to work with her on our next venture.


Friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and super helpful, Jenifer made our selling a breeze. She went above and beyond selling our property! Her response time was also great!

Jenifer handled the purchase of a lake house for us. In addition, she resolved any and all issues pertaining to the property and purchase. She has an excellent disposition and is very responsive to any requests that we had.

We loved working with Jennifer. She was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Jenifer Scanlon for any of your real estate needs. If we ever need a real estate agent again in the future we will definitely call her!


Jackie is very friendly and knowledgeable. She is dependable and very quick to respond to all of my questions! I never felt like I was bothering her, and she always kept me up to date on where we were at in the process.

Jenifer was amazing to work with. She was able to very quickly help us sell our home as well as help us purchase a new home. Jenifer is extremely hard working, knowledgeable, professional, and courteous. I highly recommend her!


Exceeded expectations in all areas. Highly recommend Jenifer if you desire a professional transaction experience. Staged condo and handled tasks outside the norm to ensure sale kept on track.

Jenifer is AMAZING. Period. She recently helped me sell my first home and buy my second. Her insights to the area allowed to find the perfect home in a wonderful neighborhood. Logistically the bidding/closing process was simple and efficient. Jenifer, and her team, were always there to answer a quick question (day or night, weekday or weekend). I’m now in a home I’ll be in for the next 10-15 years… but you can bet that next time I buy a house… I’m calling Jenifer. Thank you so much for everything!! ??


Jenifer Scanlon was very easy to work with and knows Lake Columbia and the surrounding area well. Staged the home nicely and followed up on details. Positive experience.


She does a wonderful job listing and it was sold in the second showing with a cash offer close to the listing price. She chooses the best pictures of our home to make it shine on Zillow. In the past, she has listed 2 other homes and sold them fast as well. She is dedicated to helping others make the whole process as smooth as possible. She is a wonderful lady with a big heart that is successful thru her many years of service to the Brokerage House of Jackson MI. We thank her for her services. Please allow her to help sell your home today.
