A Negotiations Expert in Lakeview and Lincoln Park Real Estate, Kathy Jensen helps clients find dream homes in Chicago, IL

Originally obtaining her real estate license to facilitate the buying and selling of privately held businesses in Florida; Kathy realized her true passion was residential sales.

"My primary neighborhood focus is high-rise condo buildings within 10 minutes of downtown Chicago and The Gold Coast. North Side areas include Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Roscoe Village, North Center, Edgewater, and Andersonville. As well as, Old Town, Bucktown, Wicker Park, Logan Square, West Loop, and South Loop.  Other areas of focus include mid-rise buildings, small walk-up buildings, and multi-unit buildings."  In 2005 and 2006, Kathy was involved in several condo conversion projects in Albany Park, which allowed her to deal with the developers and clients in a win-win approach. Kathy is a former resident of Streeterville and currently lives in the Lakeview neighborhood.

Kathy attended Eckerd College and earned her BA degree in both Business Management and Marketing.   Her experience ranges from new product development to media buying and writing business plans.

A wonderful lady who is really good at her job. I would highly recommend Kathy for a home or rental property. She was timely and knowledgeable as well as fun to spend the day with. Her apartment choices were spot on. We liked them all.

 
r.

Top-notch professional. Kathy's experience shines through, she swiftly handled the process of selling my home with ease.

 
SW

Kathy was an incredible partner in my search for a new home. She was thoughtful in all her recommendations and identifying properties that fit the long list of my "wishes". I was amazed at the recommendations, there were so many where I said "I love this one!" - because she took the time to understand me and what I was looking for. She is a warm and caring person with endless ideas and patience. She never rushed me and checked in on me throughout the process.

b.

Kathy was very professional and knowledgeable. She knew the area well that we were interested in and was very patient and considerate of our busy schedule. Kathy worked with us in a short period of time to find a new place to live and her listings were up to date and concentrated on the area we desired to move in. I would gladly recommend Kathy to family and friends who are in need of an excellent professional real estate agent. Thanks so much for a job well done. We love our new home thanks to Kathy!!!

 
JB

Kathy has helped us find our last two apartment rentals. She is always a pleasure to work with.

 
JH

Kathy was so helpful to my daughter during this process. She talked to me on the phone numerous times about our property. We bought it sight unseen with the recommendation of my daughter and the assurance of Kathy that this would be a lovely residence and location. The lawyer she introduced me to was great! Buying a property out of town is daunting but this went seamlessly thanks to Kathy and the lawyer.

 
AP

Kathy was THE BEST broker we could any buyer could hope to have! She was knowledgeable of every step in the process and kept us informed in real-time. It was clear she enjoyed her work and extended every courtesy. We really appreciated her attention to detail and customer service with a personal touch and a smile. We highly recommend her!

 
KC

The most perfect agent that I have ever met!

 
DP

Kathy is great!!!! She gave me all the guidance and supports that I needed and even beyond my expectations!

 
YL

Amazing to work with, couldn't recommend more. She was so helpful as my wife and I purchased our first condo and she helped us navigate all the stress and complexities of the home buying process like a true professional. She truly is passionate about helping her clients find the best home for them.

 
a.

One of the best realtors in Lakeview neighborhoods. She knows the town very well. Very kind and knowledgeable. Accessible at any time. She found me where to live in a week.

 
p.

Kathy was a pleasure to work with and she made our first-time home buying experience as easy as it could be. She was extremely patient throughout the process and directed us to find our dream condo! She is truly amazing to work with and her passion for helping you find the right home for you is amazing!

 
AC

I have worked with Kathy to find a rental apartment in Chicago two times and she has always been such a pleasure to work with. Very responsive, friendly, professional, and accommodating to my needs.

 
EG

Kathy was awesome to work with. This is the first time I bought a home so really had no idea how the process goes. Kathy guided me the whole way. Even though she had other clients to take care of she was always available to answer my questions. My mortgage lender was slacking, and not available when I had questions. I would call Kathy and she would answer the questions. I even ended up changing lenders, going to her recommendation, and I'm glad I did. The main reason I closed on the home was that I got all my paperwork in very fast. I got it in fast because Kathy made sure I did. She knew how competitive it was out there, and gave us all the advantage. I love my home, and appreciate Kathy's work ethic very much. Highly recommended.

JL

Very friendly and attentive. She was great!

 
VP

Kathy is awesome! Very nice and professional. When my lawyer was nowhere to be found she was able to answer all my questions. I would use her again and will be recommending her to anyone who may be buying or selling.

 
JI

She is an exceptionally kind agent and has a great knowledge of the neighborhood in the Lakeview area. I would choose her again whenever I need help.

 
DP

Kathy is a trustworthy broker. As a first-time home buyer, we visited more than 50 units for over 4 months together to find the perfect home. She respected our decisions all the time and gave us critical advice when it was needed with a happy smile always!

 
JP

She is not only knowledgeable, but she is also caring. That is a rare trait coming from realtors these days. I highly recommend Kathy to anybody seeking a real estate agent.
