Jennifer Allan, Real Estate Agent
I have been selling real estate in Denver since 1996. I was runner-up for Rookie of the Year my first year and the top producing agent in my office several years in a row. Because I'm such a Super Salesperson? No, not really. I've succeeded because I take great care of my clients, as my first priority, not as an afterthought when my prospecting is done.
The clients I have today are much more important to me than the clients I hope to have tomorrow. I am enjoying a referral-based business and intend to keep it that way!
My Areas of Expertise
Charming Old Denver
I KNOW central Denver neighborhoods. I have lived in and/or owned investment properties throughout the central Denver area, including Sloan's Lake, Highlands, Sunnyside, Hilltop, Lowry, Glendale and Old Englewood. During my career, I have sold homes in nearly every "charming old Denver neighborhood" and am especially familiar with Park Hill, Northwest Denver, City Park, Uptown, Capitol Hill, Congress Park, Mayfair, Stapleton, Montclair, Clayton, Washington Park and Platte Park. When you hire me, you hire local expertise. I won't be driving from Westminster to Castle Rock servicing my listings; I will be here for you.
I have purchased many new construction homes myself and have assisted many of my clients in buying their new home, both as primary residences and investments.
Investment (rental) Property
I own several rental properties myself and have worked with many investor clients looking for long term rentals.
Investment (fix-n-flip) Property
For now, the boom seems to be over for the fix-n-flip business in Denver, but there are still opportunities out there. While I do not pursue foreclosures or look for fix-up projects full time, I do run into good opportunities on a regular basis. I need a handful of strong investors to call when this happens and am competent to evaluate the profit potential with you. I am familiar with the costs associated with renovating older homes and can help you determine the most marketable improvements to make.
Condominiums & Townhouses
About 40% of the homes I sell are condominiums or townhomes. I understand the special issues surrounding condominium sales and how to avoid the pitfalls that inevitably arise during the marketing and sale of properties with Homeowner Associations.
My Real Estate Philosophy
I believe that a successful real estate transaction is one where everyone is smiling around the closing table. Where both buyer and seller feel they were treated fairly and respectfully and are happy with the outcome. Unless there is good reason, I will not beat anyone up, simply because we're on opposite sides of a negotiation.
I see myself as a trusted advisor, not a smiley-faced salesperson. I won't tell you what you want to hear simply to get your business. However, even though I'm not shy about offering my opinion and advice (that's what you pay me for!), I truly respect that you are the boss! The final decision is always yours and I will never push my agenda on you.
