Even though The Philly Home Girls have grown to become a household name in Philadelphia's Real Estate Industry, the teams' co-founder, Jeanne Whipple, remains a small town girl. Originally from South Carolina, she appreciates etiquette and hospitality. Working as a real estate agent affords Jeanne the opportunity to treat clients, cooperating professionals and her business with a certain home grown savoir faire.
After attending the University of the Arts and eventually receiving her fine arts degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Jeanne enjoyed short careers as an illustrator and then as a programmer for the Chicago International Film Festival. The price of real estate in Chicago eventually drove her back to Philadelphia in 2002 when she bought her first home in Fishtown, the same neighborhood where she currently resides. During those first couple of years back she transitioned a newly formed business of marketing for architects and real estate agents into full time real estate sales.
Building an impressive resume of top rankings and awards in service and sales volume on local and state levels from Realogy, NRT, Coldwell Banker Preferred, USAA and Cendant Mobility, and achieving a position as Chair of the Ethics and Grievance Committee at the Greater Philadelphia Association of Realtors are important accomplishments. Still, Jeanne ‘s primary focus is on earning five star reviews from her clients and remaining a highly reviewed Philadelphia Real Estate agent on major real estate websites including Zillow, Trulia and Yelp. The quality of work she does for her clients is more important that the quantity.
Helping people own the home they live in and love is Jeanne Whipple's passion turned occupation. When she's not working she can be found playing tennis, hiking with her dachshund off leash in the area's parks and reserves, reading Architectural Digest, appreciating a local cultural event or experiencing Philadelphia's renowned culinary scene. As a creative outlet, she is applying her experience and knowledge of the local market to building her own new construction homes for resale and delighting in the occasional flip.
Jeanne understands there are plenty of real estate agents in Philadelphia to choose from. She encourages you to do three things. Read the online reviews that her past clients have written about her. Visit her website http://www.PhillyHomeGirls.com where you will find an online portfolio of her listings, a description of her team, and an overview of her client focused business model. Then hire her to apply her expertise to the purchase or sale of your home.
