We worked with Jen back in 2007 and in hindsight we should have moved on. She did no research, all homes we viewed were found by me... she provided no other options. In addition, we feel she was more interested in her commission & not our best interest. We had asked her to negotiate and she was more concerned about insulting the home owner. Being a first time buyer, she should have guided us in the right questions to ask. We moved into a condominium complex that was broke, no reserve and lots of repairs needed where large assessments were put in place. Jen also recommended a home inspector and boy that was a huge waste of money. After moving in there was expensive problem after expensive problem... My advice/suggestion would be don't sign with the first agent you meet... do your research, it could save you a lot of money in the long run!

I of coarse feel terrible when someone is not 100% happy with their real estate purchase. I can assure you though, if you feel it is not the right time for you to buy, I will work with you as long as it takes.....EVEN YEARS. There are unfortunately some things that are out of my control such as a buyers budget, the real estate market, and a home inspectors performance, and how much one side is willing to negotiate. I can assure you that YOU always will come first. I am committed to you and this process, and will guide you as much as you would like or need. It is unfortunate when things happen after the fact, but there are things again that are out of my control. I will work hard to educate you of TODAYS market so that you can make the choices that are best for you and your family. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you!

We worked with Jen a while back with our new construction. She was very responsive and professional. She was/is diligent about getting back to you, projecting what would happen with aspects of our building process, and worked very closely with us to make sure we felt as little stress as possible. It was, at times, stressful with the builders at times and she helped us through with knowledge. She is very nice, she knowledgeable, and devoted to her work. We enjoyed working with her. I would recommend her to anyone; in fact we have.
Sold a Single Family home in 2009 in Manchester, NH.
My husband and I have been working with Jen for 5 years. We have sold a home, purchased a home and have referred her to our family members and friends who have done the same. She is now even helping us with a business purchase. Jen has gret ideas, is compassionate and caring, hears what you want and finds it for you, is always willing to help and is sure to answer all your questions. When we leave her a message she is quick to respond, she makes time for you, and she makes you feel at ease in a very stressful time of life. I highly recommend Jen without any reservation!
Jen was great to work with. My fiance and I were looking for homes for over 6 months. Jen was very patient with us and allowed us to casually look, which is exactly what we wanted in a realtor. She didn't pressure us and showed us multiple properties. She understood our needs and had our best interest in mind. I would definitely recommend Jen and use her in the future!

I would highly recommend Jen OHanley and if possible would of scored her even higher given her personality along with her skills. When we were looking for a house we had no idea what we were looking for or what was even out there. I had contacted several agents in the past but because we were just looking they wouldn't take the time to help us because we weren't serious enough yet. A friend recommended her and she jumped at the chance to help us. We looked in several towns until we figured out what area was best and with the assistance of Jen every second of the way. Jen was so patient and knowlegdable and made a somewhat stresssful time so easy and actually fun. Not for a moment did we have buyers remorse and everyday appreciate the home we found. Jen is not your typical "sales" person. She cares about her clients and isn't pushy to get a sale. She treats you like you are family and loves her job.
Bought a Single Family home in 1995 in Newton, NH.
We had Jen for a realtor approximately 7 years ago, She was extremely helpful in every aspect of purchasing our home. She knew this area and did a wonderful job finding a home that best suit our needs. We were relocating from a different state and she made herself available to assist us whenever we needed her. She made our homebuying experience less stressful by taking care of every last detail herself. We have referred Jen to many family members in which she also did a stellar job finding or selling their home. I would highly recommend Jen as a reator, you will not be disappointed!!!
