Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $900K in Bainbridge Island, WA.
We recently completed a home purchase on Bainbridge Island with Jen Pells acting as our realtor. Our interaction with her began a year and a half prior when we reached out to her via her fantastic website. We travelled to Bainbridge in December of 2012 to tour the island and look at homes with Jen. From that time forward she continued to keep us abreast of homes that she thought might be of interest to us. Even though we didn’t have a definitive timeline, as our out of state home was on the market, Jen never faltered or gave up on us. She took our prospect of relocating seriously and stayed in contact with us.

When our home finally went pending and we were able to really start the search Jen worked intently to help us prepare the list of homes we wanted to tour and then spent one long weekend touring homes. She knew everything there was to know about every property we asked about; having done her homework thoroughly. She continued to work with endless devotion through the offer/counter offer phase and right up through the close. She was always there to make sure all of the smallest of details were attended to. The purchase of our home was most definitely easy due to Jen’s ever contentious effort.

Jen is an absolute professional realtor dedicated to the business of real estate and it shows in everything she does. Thanks to Jen’s help, our dreams are a reality! We cannot recommend her highly enough.

Bought a home in 2014.
I would describe Jen’s service and expertise as EXECEPTIONAL! Her knowledge of Bainbridge Island and the real estate process in Washington State was invaluable. We made a very quick decision to move to Bainbridge Island and buy our townhouse. Her knowledge of the various condo associations, her excellent responsiveness, her integrity and skill as a negotiator made this a smooth, quick and enjoyable process. She is straightforward and honest when responding to questions even if the answers have an effect on the sale. She has been a tremendous resource for whatever it is that you need and continues to be in touch well after the sale. We are thrilled with our new home and Bainbridge Island! As a former realtor in downtown Chicago, I understand the complexities of transactions and recognize a great agent. We highly recommend Jen Pells as a Realtor!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Bainbridge Island, WA.
I honestly considered these ratings, I didn't want to just 5 star all the way down- but in each case it felt unfair to grade lower. Jen gave us honest feedback on what would be needed to sell our house and helped push/pull us in the right direction. When it was something outside of our own capabilities, she provided options that we could use. She was consistently easy to get a hold of, and regularly engaged me to give me updates.

In the end, we had to leave town before the home was listed and Jen had to take care of the entire process, and she did so masterfully. As we began to receive offers, which I would indicate as her ability to market successfully, she guided us through the process and honestly shared with us the pros and cons of each step.

What I can say to anyone considering sell their home on Bainbridge is that they will get a true partner.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Kingston, WA.
It's hard to say enough good things about Jen Pells. She exceeded our every expectation and managed all the difficult challenges of our long distance search and purchase of a new home with knowledge, integrity, and empathy. Even today, her expertise and generosity continues to benefit us as we transition to our new environment. We feel very fortunate to have met her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Bainbridge Island, WA.
We have bought and sold 7 homes, always using a real estate agent. Jen Pells is the best agent we have ever used. Jen knows Bainbridge Island and the inventory for sale. She listened to us, did her homework and showed us homes that met our needs and desires. She gave us time in the homes without a sales pitch. When we asked her questions she gave us answers that were objective. She also knows what a home is worth. Even after we purchased our home, Jen was there for us to recommend tradesmen, vendors, etc. In the whole process, Jen was knowledgeable and thorough. I wouldn't use anyone else to buy or sell a home on Bainbridge Island.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Bainbridge Island, WA.
I was looking for a home in the Seattle for our family to move from another west coast state. I knew very little about the Seattle market and neighborhoods. Her blog and the recommendation of friend and family prompted me to check out Bainbridge Island as a possibility. One visit and I knew the island was the place for us... but where could we find a place that met most of our requirements that we could still afford? After talking with me, Jen was able to narrow the field to a very short list. She even saved me time by steering me away from properties that were interesting but really would not be good for me and my family for various reasons. She even researched a property that I really liked to determine in the end that it may have a difficult septic issue in the future that I really would not want to deal with. I am very happy with the property that we ended up purchasing. Every property has some shortcomings but we landed on the one that was best for us. My wife and family could not be happier with the place we bought. Thank you Jen Pells!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Bainbridge Island, WA.
My husband and I found Jen Pells to be attentive, intelligent and helpful throughout our buying experience. Even though she had mutiple clients, plus the tricky timing of shopping for a house over Thanksgiving and Christmas, we never felt neglected. I would gladly recommend and use Jen in the future.

Jen Pells doesn't just help you find a house, but she'll find the right house for you & your family. She takes the time to get to know you & then shows you only the best selections. She's extremely knowledgeable on the area & the value of the homes. She's very accessible & always follows up on any inquiries or concerns. Her referrals for services that I've needed has been invaluable.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Bainbridge Island, WA.
I called Jen before we moved to Bainbridge Island from Denver on the recommendation of a friend. I had a lot of questions about living in such a unique place, about the local housing market, what options we could expect to find, the selling season, etc. From that first phone call I knew Jen had the knowledge and expertise to help us find the right home. On our first drive around the area a month later Jen asked lots of questions about what we were looking for and listened carefully. She kept us up to date on new listings, showed us several homes, and gave us a really informed, local perspective on each property. When we found a home to make an offer on she handled every detail smoothly, promptly, and gracefully. She is wonderful; I cannot recommend Jen more highly.

Thank you for the very nice review. So happy you are settled in your charming home. Can't wait to see the fresh changes you've made and I really can't wait to see the property come alive in the spring.

We found Jen when researching Bainbridge Island "with kids" and landed on her excellent blog. We engaged her right away and she immediately started the search. We had one weekend to visit and see as many homes as possible and Jen made that happen - she was flawlessly organized and a wealth of local knowledge. When we didn't find anything right away, she found us an incredible rental home that helped us get off to a great start. Almost as soon as we arrived from San Diego, Jen found us a great house and we began the buying process. Jen was responsive, professional, and knowledgeable - everything we could have asked for in an agent. Even when the process got somewhat messy with our financing causing delays, she hung in there and made sure everything went well. We love our house and we were extremely pleased with Jen. We would recommend Jen to anyone moving to or buying a house on the Island. And we still consult her blog regularly.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad we found a great home for your family and that you were comfortable all along the way, even in a rental. Can't wait to see how you've made the house your home.
