For the past twenty years, Jen Atkinson built her career as an educator and received two master’s degrees. On her days off, she would work with friends, family, neighbors and clients on staging their homes for sale and designing cozy living spaces for them to enjoy. Through this, she realized her true love for all things houses.

Jen and her husband, John, have purchased, renovated and sold many homes in Glen Ellyn. Through these experieneces, Jen developed a keen eye for design and sees the potential in homes that some may not see right away. She understands that by carefully designing and staging a home, it makes a big difference in being able to sell a home quickly. She does this by pointing out the most practical changes and updates to a home while taking into account total budget and resale value. Jen is excited to bring her expertise to her clients and create the best outcomes for them as they sell their current home or purchase a new one.

Having bought and sold so many properties, Jen understands the ins and outs of real estate transactions. She knows how stressful and emotional the process can be for a homebuyer or seller, and her priority is to provide the care and consideration her clients need to make their experience seamless.

Jen is a dedicated professional, reliable and responsible. She thrives on building positive and productive relationships and loves working with new clients.

In her spare time, Jen enjoys working on her own home, which she is currently transforming a little at a time. She spends time with her husband and their five daughters, walking or riding bikes around Glen Ellyn or the neighboring towns.
