Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Mount Washington, Pittsburgh, PA.
What can we say about Jenny Barnick? We had a wonderful experience with her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to enter the real estate market, either as a buyer or as a seller. Jenny came to us as a recommendation from a few mutual friends, and we are ecstatic that we found her! Probably the most impressive thing that we found when working with Jenny was her level of responsiveness, and the proactive manner with which she responded to our concerns. She seemingly was available whenever we needed her, and often exceeded our own expectations in terms of how quickly she addressed our needs. From the start, she was patient and very understanding of our needs when helping us price our home for re-sale, while also helping us to have a realistic perspective on the market. She was dilligent in marketing our home from the moment it went up for sale, to the point that we received and accepted an offer, and subsequently through the closing process. Likewise, she was patient, understanding and empathetic through our own purchasing process. We could go on and on, but the bottom line is that we were extremely satisfied with Jenny as our agent, and would highly recommend her to any prospective buyer or seller!

Well the feeling is mutual! Such a terrific family to work with and I am so glad I got an opportunity to know you...Thank you for your kind words.
Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Strip District, Pittsburgh, PA.
Having found Jenny and her boutique real estate agency through a magazine (Table), I was expecting to be shown around a couple of urban areas to educate myself, so that when the time came to start looking seriously for real estate, my husband and I would have a better sense of where we wanted to live.
Jenny was able to educate me regarding the ins and outs of each of the urban areas we were considering, allowing me to form my own opinions about them.
When we came across the right place, far sooner than expected, she was enormously helpful in our being successful in having our offer accepted, again helping with strategy while leaving the decisions to us. Throughout the process, Jenny was extremely responsive, something we had found lacking in other real estate professionals. She was lovely to work with, so knowledgeable and made the process far more enjoyable than we had ever previously experienced.

Thank you so much. It was fun working with you and I am so happy it all worked out for you! Enjoy the next chapter of your life in the Burgh!!
Showed home in 2014 in Mount Washington, Pittsburgh, PA 15211.
Words can not explain how phenomenal Jenny is. Being a first time home owner she was very patient, knowledgeable and quick to show me any property! Any buyer, high roller or low, should work with Jenny. Her negotiation skill are unbeatable! She will not give up on you at any time and will strive to help you find EXACTLY what you are looking for. She stand her ground to represent you and has your needs and wants in her interest at ALL times. She will take the time do make sure you get what you deserve, need and want.
I am a first time homeowner and was looking for a lower priced property that was in a prime location for future revenue. The past year we went in and out of places making offers as we stood solid in what I wanted. The result ... a property in Mt Washington with a view! It is livable, but I am going to renovate it. I purchased this home for 71k, 6% sellers assist, 3.75% interest rate (RIGHT!), they purchased me a brand new furnace and rewired the entire house to code (that's over 10k right there). Is this steal or what?
This did not happen over night.. her patients and quick availability over a years span made this happen. No I was a hard customer as many may not be, but not matter what she is your girl! This Relator knows the Pittsburgh area and I wouldn't recommend anyone else if you want the best of the best.

Thank you Joanna! I am so happy you found just what you were looking for! Can't wait to see the remodel!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $75K in Brookline, Pittsburgh, PA.
Jenny is extremely outgoing, and very easy to work with. She is quite knowledgable about the surrounding areas and was able to find exactly what I was looking for. She was also very responsive and attentive to my needs, and made sure to keep me updated every step of the way - I would definitely recommend her!

Thanks so much! I really enjoyed working with you and am so happy you love your first home!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Carrick, Pittsburgh, PA.
Jenny helped me buy my first home, I had a great experience. She was great at finding properties that fit the profile for what I was looking for! She was very responsive and very quick at answering me back when I had questions, the process was seamless...I had been concerned b/c everyone told me that this would be such a stressful process, but it went great!
My husband and I recently bought our first home with Liz Merrell and Jenny Barnick from One80 Real Estate as our buyers agents. Liz and Jenny were absolutely fantastic to work with. Neither my husband nor I had any previous experience with real estate and Liz and Jenny were extremely helpful, patient, honest, and professional. Any time we asked to see a listing (almost exclusively nights and weekends) one or both of them were able to meet with us to show us the house. They gave us their honest opinions on the homes we saw and were able to get us our dream home for an affordable price under the max budget that my husband and I discussed with Liz and Jenny. We put an offer on the house one week before we left for a two week vacation. We couldn't have done it without Liz and Jenny. Their knowledge of the process and their contacts were able to help us get an inspection, an appraisal, and all of our mortgage paperwork before we left on our trip. We had limited access to phone or internet on our trip but Liz and Jenny took care of everything! When we got back home all we had to do was our final walk through and to wait for the closing date. Liz and Jenny were a pleasure to work with. My husband and I couldn't be happier in our new home and would recommend both Liz and Jenny in a heart beat!

It was such a pleasure helping you find your dream home! Working with clients like you is the reason we do what we do. Thanks for choosing us as your agents!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Bethel Park, PA.
Jenny has been a pleasure to work with throughout the entire home buying experience. We're first time home buyer and she made everything easy which really minimized the stress. We interviewed four other agents before finding Jenny. My only regret is that we didn't call her first!
Response from Jenny on 09/18/2013
It was absolutely wonderful working with you guys! I am thrilled that you found such a great first home. Thanks so much for the kind words!
Jenny was amazing. This was our first home buying experience and it was perfect and fast! We were completely finished in 30 days and got the home we really wanted. Jenny was professional and personable, prompt in responding to questions or problems and took complete charge when we were out of town. The whole way through, we knew she was on our side and on top of executing our transaction. Our friends are amazed at how smoothly and quickly we managed to get things done. Truly, it is only thanks to Jenny and our amazing mortgage counselor, whom she recommended!

Thank you so much. It was so nice working with you and I am glad you are enjoying your new home!
Jenny is an extremely knowledgable and professional real estate agent. She has assisted me in multiple real estate deals, including the purchase of my home. The most recent transaction was the purchase of a multifamily apartment building. During the acquisition process, Jenny was extremeIy helpful and responsive. She sent me numerous listings that all matched my search criteria. After I looked at the listings, Jenny and I would discuss the pros and cons of each property. Once I selected properties to pursue, Jenny was again extremely responsive and scheduled showings immediately. Jenny provides a level of service that I feel is rare in the estate industry. In addition to her impressive of level of knowledge and responsiveness, Jenny is also a joy to work with on a personal level. I've spent many hours with Jenny searching for real estate, and the fact that she is so personable makes the experience that much better. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
