Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Arlington Heights, IL.
Working with Jen was great! She was recommended to us by a friend who recently bought a home. She was very knowledgeable about the area and what to look for in a home. Her feedback and input on properties was honest and insightful. We definitely felt that she had our best interest in mind when looking for a home. We never felt pressured to buy a home. She has a great balance of professionalism and personality. As a first time home buyer, we felt comfortable asking Jen tons of random questions regarding the home buying process. She took time to explain everything and walk us through some of the more complicated pieces. I would absolutely recommend Jen to anyone looking to buy a home and we would without doubt use her again!

Jen was an absolute pleasure to work with. I found out about her through the recommendation of a friend. She was a great balance of professional yet laid back so we always felt very comfortable speaking and dealing with her. One of the things I loved about Jen is that she wasn't afraid to get her hands dirty. She was the first person to start lifting up carpet to see if there was hardwood underneath and inspecting the filthiest of crevices to check for mold, mildew, cracks, etc. She was extremely knowledgeable about how much additional work that would be needed to get a house in the condition that we wanted. She never made us feel rushed when we looked at homes, even on the trips when we looked at 15+ houses in a day. I would definitely recommend Jen to anyone looking to buy a new home.

Jen was so helpful throughout our search and buying process. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and knows so much about the real estate market. She was able to be reached day or night and was ready and excited to answer any questions we had. I just can't say enough about how helpful she was, and I would definitely recommend her to anybody. Extremely professional and helpful!
Jen is the most amazing agent! She was so dedicated in finding us our perfect home! She was consistently updating us with properties that she thought we would like! She would show us properties at all hours of the day, was extremely available to show houses, and even went and looked at properties for us while we were out of town. She was so friendly and extremely helpful to us! Being a first time home buyer we were very nervous and she was always willing to help us with all of our questions! She is truly amazing!

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $300K in Mount Prospect, IL.
Jen helped my husband and me find our first home. She was extremely patient with us as we worked through the process. She educated us thoroughly on the entire purchase process before we started looking at homes. After the first few times out with Jen looking at homes, she got to know what we liked and was then able to "rule out" some homes without us having to go through them.
During the entire process, Jen was very responsive and informative. If we were waiting to hear back on an offer, she made sure to keep in touch with us to give us updates. She never pressured us to make a decision. Once we finally find our home, she was there through every step of the offer/purchase process from inspections to closing.
I have recommended Jen to friends and will be sure to use her the next time I am in the market to buy/sell a house!

Thank you! I am so happy you had such a great experience and thank you for the referrals. I really appreciate you passing along my information!
I would use Jen Ortman in a heartbeat to either sell my home or help me find a home. She clearly understood the type of property I was looking for and what my criteria was and she made sure to show me only properties that fit that description in the areas I was interested in living. She is pleasant, knowledgable and truly know real estate and the industry. I highly recommend her to anyone who is either considering to sell or interested in purchasing a home.

Thanks Anna! It was great working with you too. I am so glad we found the home we did. After months of searching I knew it was the one for you the first time we came in the door. Hope you are enjoying it!
