Jenny was great!! She's a true professional, and through her efforts and expertise we sold our condo two weeks after putting it on the market. We had more than 15 offers and sold it for more than 30% over asking. We trusted her completely through the entire process because we already knew how good of a realtor she was.. she helped us buy it 8 years ago! Jenny truly understands what it takes to buy and sell houses.. always making sure to get her clients what they want. She'll be our realtor as long as we're in the L.A. area.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Escondido, CA.
As an out-of-towner looking for a house in central Los Angeles for my son, I knew enough to know that I didn’t know anything about neighborhoods. As a tech-challenged senior I was immediately drawn to Jenny’s website because of its organized and user-friendly format and thorough information. I found no other website that compared. On top of that Jenny turned out to be a fantastic agent--quickly educating us to what to expect in available housing, covering many places in a short amount of time, helping us distill what we were really looking for. Ahead of our timeline, we found the house that son and granddaughters have moved into and made their own. Jenny responded immediately to our questions, offering her observations based on her experience, and made the entire process as painless as possible. You won’t go wrong working with Jenny.
Sold a Multiple Occupancy home in 2013 for approximately $850K in Highland Park, Los Angeles, CA.
My husband and I worked with Jenny Durling twice, once when she sold the house to us, and then again three years later when we decided to put it back on the market. Both experiences were extremely positive. Jenny stays in touch. When we decided to sell, we would never have called anyone else. She is conscientious. enthusiastic, very knowledgeable, and determined to get the job done. House sales are complicated and Jenny never let us down. She was there every step of the way. She is also a delightful person and a joy to work with.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $875K in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA.
We enjoyed working with Jenny. My husband is knowledgeable in the real estate realm and interviewed several agents. He felt Jenny had the best approach and we decided to work with her. She knows the drill, was very helpful in suggestions to make the house more saleableand was able to direct us to some local service persons to help ready the house for the showing, since we live in Orange County. Jenny was proactive in planning a good strategy and then when the house went on the market, she took over the negotiations for us and contacted us with updates, etc. in a very timely manner. Bottom line, the house sold for a whopping $140K over the asking price. Her process was swift and thorough. Not only was she a great agent, she is a genuinely nice person!

Thanks Sheri! It was a pleasure working with you and I'm so glad we found you a home in Los Feliz for such an incredible price!
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in El Sereno, Los Angeles, CA.
We were referred to Jenny by our friends and had interviewed other "top" agents before we decided to list our home with Jenny. It turned out to be the best decision we made. She walked us through the whole process and was on top of every single detail. We had over 15 bids and her professional honest advices were so refreshing! She made us feel like we were her only clients and was even on the phone with us at 10 pm sometimes. We always get at quick response when we had small questions along the way.
We loved her so much we decided to use her again when purchasing our new home in South Pasadena. The market was so hot and it took us a year to find our new home but we couldn't be happier with the result. Even in this tough market, she was willing to work hard every weekend for us and was awesome at negotiations. She's not shy about offering her advices and strategies, this is why you hire her. She truly cares about her clients. She got us a great price on our new home and we couldn't be happier to refer our friends and family to her.
Really appreciated her honesty about the properties I was interested in and would talk me out of them if she felt they were not right for me. that is rare in an agent who usually just wants you to purchase the property for a quick sale. I think she was more patient than I was

Jenny has been a pleasure to work with over the few years that I've known her. I have put her through a lot with my desire to find the ideal home. She's helped steer me away from ones that would have become a burden and when we saw the one I currently live in, she knew it was right. She has been dedicated to me as a client and has responded, followed up with and given her expertise on countless listings. When the right home finally turned up, she was able to guide me in competing with multiple offers and negotiating the counter offer space. Once we were chosen she also helped me go back to the seller and ask for reductions based on work needed with the home. I was very happy with the final selling price and the overall experience. She is very knowledgable about all angles of the process and easy to work with. Jenny will also fight for your rights and not consent to every demand of the seller. I feel very lucky running into Jenny and if I ever sell or plan to buy another home, I will be getting in touch!
Bought a Condo home in 2013 in North Hollywood, North Hollywood, CA.
Here's some of what Jenny did for me:
-Pushed the lender to make sure I got an amazing 3.375% interest rate (!)
-Gave honest feedback on all the places we looked it. If she doesn't like something or think it is right for you, she won't hesitate to point out issues. But if you find the place for you, she will work tirelessly to seal the deal.
-Put up with my: looking at everything from illegal garage conversions in El Sereno, to cottages in Altadena, to lofts in Noho (one of which I ended up purchasing!), flaking out on a potential offer, disappearing to go to Vegas for a week during escrow (!)
-Made sure that we closed ON TIME, even though there were problems with the lender and escrow communicating
-Was there to guide me as a first-time buyer through every step of the process, from the search, to the offer, and through escrow and final closing
In short, you are in great hands with Jenny! Throughout the process, I would regularly get emails from her at 10 pm on weekend nights; I wasn't even aware she was working on several other clients' deals concurrently until after my purchase closed - she was so responsive and quick. I was truly impressed with her persistence and patience throughout my home-buying experience.
I had been previously been searching for almost a year with an agent that wasn't working out and had pretty much given up all hope, when Jenny found me through a listing she was the seller agent on. I'm glad she did, because I don't think I would have otherwise found my amazing new home!

Thanks so much for your kind words. You were wonderful to work with and I'm so glad we found you the right place to call home!

Jenny is great! She came recommended to us through a family member and she made the experience of home very comfortable. From the moment we called her she was helping us out. Being first time buyers, we didn't know what to do first and she pointed us in the right direction. We came to her with a low budget and no experience, and she made sure we were well informed on everything we needed to be and calm about it all at the same time. We really appreciate how honest and upfront she is too. We did an FHA loan and before driving all over to look at 9,000 houses, when there was something we were interested in she would research it before hand and tell us if it was even worth going and looking at. (as in if FHA would approve it). If we ever wanted to sell and buy again we would use her again in an heartbeat!
