One word: the best. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! She had a plan to list the house when otherwise most people wouldn’t – as she knew this market. We got 11 bids – and exceeded all of our expectations. –T. Struby

Out of a very large pool of real estate agents in Westchester, Jen Gilchrist stands out among the very best. She was the last of three agents we interviewed to sell our home in Pelham and I’m very happy we waited to meet her. Based on her extensive knowledge of the market and success in selling similar homes, she convinced us to aggressively price our house above what the other agents suggested. She also came prepared with a plan to get it to market ASAP – measured in days, not weeks – and personally lead the marketing and sales process throughout. She was incredibly responsive and professional throughout the showing and, eventually, the negotiation phase. Because of Jen, we sold our house in 2.5 weeks at a price we were pleased to receive. She’s a rock star.

We can’t say enough good things about the Queen of Pelham! As native southerners looking to buy a home, Jen’s local knowledge and expertise was invaluable to us. The first time we met Jen, she hopped in the driver seat of our car and showed us around town- we immediately felt like she was an old friend. You’ll quickly learn that if she doesn’t know someone, she has a 1-degree of separation from them. She is well connected and respected, which made the buying process much smoother for us. She was instrumental in helping us find the neighborhood and home that was best for us. Thank you Jen, we’re happy to call you our first official Westchester friend! –Amanda Berce

“Within 10 minutes, of clicking the “Get more info” button on a listing (that we eventually didn’t buy), my wife and I knew Jen would be the agent to help us find our family’s new home. Not only did she call us right away, but she already had the framework of a plan, detailed info on the house, and ideas about which similar houses in town we should see. She was great at communicating throughout the process, including while on her family vacation, and always with purpose. In the end, it was Jen’s personal relationships with another agent, an RE lawyer, and an inspector that got us into our new house just in time for the start of the school year. She’s a fantastic local RE resource who I’d wholeheartedly recommend.” -L. Khan

Working with Jen Gilchrist to sell our home and buy a new one was the best decision we could have made. We knew we were getting a great person on our side, but she exceeded even our highest expectations. Before we ever discussed a plan for selling our house, Jen met with us to understand our reasons for selling and our objectives for moving to our next home. Jen took those discussions into account when giving us her recommendation for the listing price and marketing plan, as well as a list of items to focus on in preparation for showing our home. Jen’s knowledge of the Pelham market and her connections were invaluable. She knew how to market our home. The pictures on our listing were professionally done, attracting buyers right from the start. Her analysis of a suggested listing price was a precise exercise in which her knowledge of the neighborhood and the buyer demographics and resulted in a final sale price close to our asking price and well within our original expectations. Jen was with us every step of the way, including working with us on the purchase of our new home, at all times ensuring that our objectives were being met. She provided outstanding service but most importantly she always put our wants and needs above all else. We put our trust in Jen and it paid off. We recommend Jen highly. –M. Tuttle

We used Jen to sell our home of almost 20 years and also to buy one in a neighboring community. She handled both transactions in a professional and efficient manner. She was always available to answer questions, negotiate details, and calm any concerns we had. Her attention to detail, keen negotiating skills and knowledge of the local communities made the process stress free for our family. I highly recommend Jennifer Gilchrist.
–E. Tuttle

Using Jennifer Gilchrist as our broker was an awesome experience. She diligently worked the process of selling our home in a remarkable short period of time. She truly understands the real estate market, competitive pricing and the art of closing the sale. She was able to make the process of selling a home look simple. If you are looking for a realtor, I would highly recommend to use Jennifer Gilchrist. –C. Teller

Jen Gilchrist is an incredibly knowledgeable agent who is the ultimate professional. If any issues came up with the sale of our home, they were handled immediately. Selling/buying a home can be such a stressful experience but with Jen in our corner the process was seamless. It was an absolute pleasure working with her and I will be using Jen for all future real estate transactions!
-K. Teller

Working with Jen was a pleasure. She made selling our house stress free. She is hard working, focused and understood our needs. I would not hesitate to recommend Jen to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. –David Amorelli

We had a wonderful experience using Jennifer Gilchrist as our broker. I truly believe the only reason we sold our house is because of Jennifer. Her professionalism, negotiating skills and knowledge of all aspects of the real estate business is unparalleled. She was able to make what is usually a stressful process, very manageable. If you are looking for a realtor, you need to use Jennifer Gilchrist. –Denise Amorelli

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Jennifer. She was extremely helpful, knowledge and flexible with her time. This was very important to us since we were coming from out of state and didn’t know the new area very well. I would highly recommend Jen and her team to anyone in the buying or selling of a home! –K. Pursel

As first time home buyers, we admittedly did not know much about how the process worked. One thing we did learn very quickly after working with Jen is that having someone like her on our side made all the difference in the world. She has in depth knowledge of Pelham and knew exactly what we should and, more importantly, should not be looking at. Jen was finding homes we did not even realize were on the market. It was a pleasure to work with someone who really wanted to find us a home…the right home. –J. Webb

Jen helped us with both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our existing home. She guided us through the process from beginning to end and was knowledgeable and very honest. We ended up with the results we wanted on both ends.
-M. Mulholland

My wife and I had a terrific experience selling our home with Jen. From start to finish, she acted with courtesy and professionalism. When we encountered the inevitable stress points that accompany any transaction, Jen’s experience gave us confidence in our decisions and guided us to a positive outcome. I would strongly recommend working with Jen for buying or selling a home. –T. Creutz

My husband and I both bought and sold houses with Jen as our agent and she was extremely knowledgeable and thorough and always available to speak to us. Her knowledge of Pelham and the surrounding towns make her a great choice for anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area. Highly recommend!
-K. Soderberg

My wife and I both are not from the states so buying a house for the first time was a little tricky knowing how the process worked. Jen was amazing on every level, she took so much time to walk us through the process, would answer our hundreds of calls and texts at any hour of the day of night and was great at giving us honest and great advice on the area and houses. When we found our dream house Jen handled everything and got us a great deal! She was so much fun to work with, professional on every level and we truly would not be in our new home without her! –J. Ambler

Jen is an amazing realtor and we so valued her expertise. We were first time home buyers and her guidance about what to think about in a property, valuations and even re-sale was invaluable. Her local insight was so helpful, and I really appreciated her honesty and counsel. She helped walk us through the process and what to expect, was a great resource for local contacts through out the buying process and was always responsive even late in the evenings and weekends as we went into closing. Her experience also helped us secure the property in a competitive bidding situation, we really relied on her experience and would have been lost without her. She stood alongside us through out the entire process. We would definitely use Jen again, and would highly recommend her. –Kate Allyn

Jen’s ability to marry what I wanted to available inventory made her my perfect match. She was very responsive and always available to me when I needed help. Jen’s motivation is genuine and her attention to detail made me feel confident that I was considering everything I should. She was so easy to work with and I had complete trust in her abilities. -I. Franchini

Jen is a good listener and takes the time to learn your priorities and needs. She’s also a good sounding board for helping clients discover their needs when they’re not sure about just what they are. She was great at providing some very useful information about properties that were coming to market. And when it came time to negotiate, she helped us get the house in a very competitive market. Personable, patient, and very easy to work with! –C. Acampora

Jen was a huge asset in helping us find our new home. She knows the Pelham market inside and out and was always responsive to our questions and schedule. She provided great guidance and advice –ours was not an easy process–and that skill is hard to find in a real estate professional. Jen also helped us sell our existing home –and again was invaluable. She worked tirelessly to bring us likely buyers and in the end we were very pleased with the result. All in all anyone would be lucky to have Jen on their side. –K. Howell

Jen represented us as a selling broker and was top notch from start to finish. Professional, knowledgeable and gave very good advice. She knows the Pelham and surrounding Markets and all the key people involved. We would highly recommend her to anyone. Two thumbs up. –J. Yalmokas

Jen was a tremendous help in searching for our new home. She understood the local market, alerted us to appropriate listings, and helped us think through options. Jen was highly professional as well as personable and easy to work with. I would strongly recommend her to others looking in Pelham.
-M. Middleton

We had a great experience with Jen. Not only was she patient and calm with us when needed, but her customer service skills did not end there. Jen provided excellent counseling every step of the way and she negotiated on our behalf with confidence.
-A. Dunn

Jen is just terrific! She has such a command of the Pelham real estate market and always made us feel like she was truly our advocate – a rare quality to find in business these days. Throughout the process, Jen took great care to make herself available to us and was incredibly responsive and timely with any information we requested. We enjoyed each and every interaction and would not hesitate to work with her again should the opportunity arise. -G. Sansone

Jen is a 10! And we mean that on every level. She took her time in getting to know us and our wants/needs for a home in Pelham. Jen has a commanding knowledge of market changes and listings in Pelham and a great understanding of Westchester County in general. We are so happy in our home and truly owe that to Jen and her incredible ability to negotiate on our behalf.
