Team reviews

We spoke to several realtors in the early stages of our relocation to Philadelphia, but we chose Jeanne for her warmth, knowledge of the city, humor, and sincere interest in helping us find the right home. She worked hard to help us identify a great neighborhood and a wonderful house, and represented us with expertise in tricky negotiations. We had the opportunity to work with several members of Jeanne's team, and they are all wonderful. Jeanne is truly a great person and a consummate professional -- i recommend her without reservation.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Kensington, Philadelphia, PA.

As a first time home buyer, I wanted to find a great realtor to help me through the whole process. Jeanne and her team of Philly Home Girls did just that. Luckily we found a house we love on our first trip out to look at houses. Jeanne kept in contact with us through all of the steps and was always available to answer our questions. I would recommend Jeanne to anyone looking for a realtor and I hope to see her in the neighborhood when it gets warmer! :)

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Fishtown, Philadelphia, PA.

Alright, so this is a little delayed (almost a year), but I have put it off long enough. First off if you need a realtor, Jeanne is fantastic! We had a great experience and we truly love our house and neighborhood. Jeanne definitely made the process easy.

So here are the details: My husband and I had been through two realtors already who really just didn't work out. We went on Zillow and contacted the top two realtors at the time (most amount of stars and most amount of reviewers) and as luck would have it Jeanne was one of them and she got back to us immediately! The first time we met it had snowed a foot the night before, but Jeanne was still up for meeting up with us and trudging through the snow to look at houses. We were a little pressed for time as my husband was commuting a long ways to work each day where we currently lived, so finding a house quickly was a priority... But we are a little picky too, so not too quickly :).

Anyways, we were coming from about an hour away, so Jeanne had arranged to show us 10 houses around the Graduate Hospital area (which is where we thought we thought we wanted to live). One of the houses piqued our interest, but we had never made an offer before, so we were a little hesitant. Jeanne worked with us to put in an offer within a couple of days (we debated a bit whether we should make an offer), however at the same time that we put in an offer another couple had too. We could have pursued bidding on the house, but we really didn't feel too strongly about it, so we decided to not put in any counter offer. Working with the paperwork and such with Jeanne really made us realize what we had to do when we found "the one". So on another trek to the city (I think it snowed again, or at least there was snow everywhere still) we had mentioned a house in the fishtown neighborhood, which we really hadn't considered before, that house turned out not to be what we were looking for, but Jeanne showed us a couple more houses in the neighborhood and we were hooked. Jeanne sent us a guide she created with her team for the area and it was a great way to get introduced to the area. One of the houses in fishtown really piqued our interest and after a second look on the same day, we knew it was the one. We discussed with Jeanne a competitive bid to get the house (Jeanne was great with this letting us know what the comparables were for the area in the last few months) and they accepted.

From there it was pretty smooth sailing. Jeanne and her staff (Big thanks to Zoe!) ensured we got all of the inspections, paperwork and payments to the right places on time. Jeanne was also great with working out our schedule, we had to move up our closing date to fit with my husbands Navy Reserve Annual Training and everyone was able to make that work. Closing was pretty easy, lots of signatures and a walk through of the house to ensure everything was being taken care of that was part of our negotiations.

At the end we had our keys and although we weren't commissioning a ship and the house wasn't brand new we cracked a bottle of champagne against the house to christen our first house! Yeah! Thanks to Jeanne and her team for making it so easy!

Cheers, Irene and Matt

Bought a home in 2014 in Center City East, Philadelphia, PA 19106.

We decided to meet Jeanne after reading all her glowing reviews online. We weren't disappointed! We found her to be very prepared, kind, and helpful. She showed us a house we had been interested in the day we met, and we almost immediately made an offer on it. She gave us a great deal of help figuring out what to offer. Without her, I'm confident we wouldn't have reached such a favorable price. She had great contacts for home inspections, homeowner insurance, lenders, and more. She also helped us achieve a good outcome in the post-inspection negotiations. From the day we met her, our process was surprisingly smooth and painless. A shout-out here for Zoe in her office, who helped keep things on track. Zoe was very efficient and often left us thinking, "wow, they've got everything covered… is there really nothing we have to do?" Work with these ladies and you'll be in good hands.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Kensington, Philadelphia, PA.

Jeanne was great to work with for first time home buyers. She always gave us great advice and we learned to really value her opinion and insight. Throughout the buying process she was very patient and flexible with her appointment times. I would highly recommend Jeanne for anyone looking for a Realtor she was honest, trustworthy and a wonderful advocate of our needs.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Roxborough, Philadelphia, PA.

Jeanne was great for my entire home search process. As a first-time homebuyer, Jeanne was very helpful in teaching me everything I needed to know for shopping in the Northern Liberties, Fishtown, Fairmount, and Manayunk areas. Being a traveler for work, Jeanne was also extremely understanding in dealing with my crazy schedule while helping me find the house I was desperately looking for.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Fishtown, Philadelphia, PA.

We cannot overstate how great Jeanne has been throughout the entire process of buying our new home. She is extremely well informed about the Philadelphia housing market, and from our first meeting was an ideal resource for us, particularly given that we were first time buyers. We had very specific ideas of what we wanted (400-480K, 3+br, parking, new/recent build, high quality finishes). Right from the start, she perfectly understood what we were looking for and showed us homes that were impressive to us. Jeanne is professional, diligent, and honest - it was such a relief to have a realtor who was a trusted partner and advisor during the buying process! Thank you so much, Jeanne!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 in South Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA.

As a former life-long resident of Philadelphia (who finally decided to relocate to Virginia), I contacted Coldwell Banker to assist me in the sale of my residential address located in south Philadelphia. The real estate firm assigned Jeanne Whipple to represent me in this endeavor. It is a distinct pleasure to state that Jeanne Whipple is the ultimate professional in the real estate industry! Miss Whipple devoted the necessary time and efforts to ensure that the sale of my property achieved a "happy ending". Without reservation, I would clearly advise folks to contact Coldwell Banker to represent their real estate transaction and request that Jeanne Whipple be assigned as their agent. As a retired Commissioned Officer of the Armed Forces, I take pride in saluting this lady for her professionalism throughout the various steps of my real estate experience!

Bought a home in 2013 in Fishtown, Philadelphia, PA 19125.

I feel so lucky that we connected with Jeanne and her team, The Philly Home Girls. Jeanne is professional and very well prepared. I especially appreciate that she does not try to sell you a house - she listens to your needs and desires, then takes the time to find you the perfect home. Thanks to the Philly Home Girls, we found and closed on the home of our dreams in Fishtown. As if buying a home isn't stressful enough, the timing from offer to settlement all occurred during the busy holiday season. Not once did we feel like we weren't being taken care of by Jeanne's team. The Philly Home Girls shepherd us in to our new home just in time to celebrate the new year!

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Fishtown, Philadelphia, PA.

I can't reccomend Jeanne and her team highly enough. Jeanne is incredibly knowledgable and went above and beyond for me as a (probably pretty high maintenance) first time buyer. Through the hundreds of questions I had for her, she never made me feel like any question was too small or too silly. This woman seriously has an abundance of patience. I ended up with what I call my Barbie Dreamhouse in Fishtown and I feel like I really lucked out.

She was communicative and accessible throughout the whole process and she genuinely cares about giving her clients top notch customer service. She always has so many clients, but her care and attention to you always make you feel like you're a priority to her.

She's also just a delightful person in general. You couldn't pay me to use another realtor in the future!
