Testimonials

"Jennifer Zales is truly AMAZING! If you are looking for an exceptionally talented and qualified high end realtor, look no further. We have used many realtors over the years and truly believe that Jennifer is, by far, the best realtor we've ever known. She is fantastic at valuations and pricing advice- when our home was priced correctly- it sold quickly. Also, we were shocked that so many deals fell through during COVID, but Jennifer went above and beyond to get our deal closed. We had issues that cropped up, but she was able to navigate them all and bring both sides to the table. Brilliant! She has contacts everywhere and thinks way outside the box! She is very professional, exceptionally organized, and extremely trustworthy. We HIGHLY recommend Jennifer Zales! She was worth every penny... probably more!"

AG

"Jennifer was wonderful in every aspect of our home search. She traveled all around the Tampa area with us and was very helpful with research. Once we found a home- she was invaluable in the ‘acquistion process’ and all the follow up details. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home!"

Buyer

Seller

"Luxury homeowners expect and demand performance. When you engage Jennifer Zales to sell your luxury home, you get high integrity and exceptional performance. She manages the entire process from sale strategy to execution details in a very hands-on and caring way. She is both professional and personal, an excellent talent and a fun person to work with. Jennifer would get 10 stars if they had that many!"

Seller

"I used Jennifer when we relocated from New Jersey to Florida last May. She truly listened when I explained what we were looking for and understood what I was saying when I explained the lifestyle we lived vs. the lifestyle we wanted to have after relocation. She had several homes lined up for me to see but the first one knocked it out of the park. I highly recommend using her for either a rental or a home purchase."

Tenant

"Jennifer Zales looks at the big picture as well as the smallest details. She marketed my home aggressively and in the most sought out publications. What really set head and shoulders above the many realtors I've worked with in the past, is her negotiating skills. She skillfully communicated with the buyers via the selling broker a fantastic deal that custom fit our needs. She made sure that the inspection and closing went as smooth as possible. Jennifer's skills are very impressive."

Seller

"Jennifer Zales is a "best in show" professional. She assisted my husband and I, in purchasing the vacation home of our dreams. We are located in the northeast, but working with Jennifer, it was as if we were just down the street. We have purchased a few residential and commercial properties in the past, but have never received the support and attention that Jennifer provided. She made herself available for us 24/7. Simply put, she is just fantastic! I highly recommend working with her."

Buyer

"I have known Jennifer Zales for over five years. She has been my Realtor through a few transactions both buying and selling my homes. She has a phenomenal work ethic and is always prompt to respond to all of my questions and concerns. She knows the market and knows how to get the job done. The best thing any buyer or seller can do is TRUST her instincts and advice!! She is absolutely the best I have ever worked with..and I have bought and sold nearly twenty homes over the years. Outstanding lady!"

Buyer & Seller

"If you are looking for a Real Estate Professional – look no further! Jennifer is the best. I felt like she was available 24 hours a day. She is tireless – prompt – and above all ethical. She works for you and what is best for you – not for her. If you have worked with as many realtors as I have you know how unusual that is. We have finished a 4.6 million dollar transaction with her as the realtor and to show you how good she is – this is the first review I have ever given anybody – I hate doing this type of thing and refuse to do it – but you deserve to know about Jennifer."

KM

"Jennifer was fantastic. We have sold over 10 homes over the years. She was absolutely the best we have ever had. Advertising was professional and consistent. Possible buyers were screened very carefully. She was always there early and the last to leave after turning off all the lights. This was a very large house with lots of detail and special features. Jennifer learned everything she could so that she could not only sale the house to the buyer but answer all their questions. The closing went like clock work. We got a contract and closed in 2 1/2 weeks. She stayed calm even when we were a little stressed getting our things moved out. Would 100% use her again. She is now a dear friend."

JKS

"Jennifer Zales was outstanding in every aspect of our home sale transaction. She met every challenge with creative solutions to close the sale. Jennifer used her vast experience to navigate through financing issues using her network of resources to find the appropriate lender for the buyer and was always ready to assist both parties as necessary. Most of all Jennifer communicated every step of the way and was always available when called upon. She was prompt in responding to questions and communicated the status of the transaction often. Her attention to detail was impressive and always accurate. We can’t say enough good things about the professional and skilled services offered by Jennifer Zales."

Seller

"With my wife and I being from Connecticut and looking for a 2nd home Jennifer was incredibly knowledgable of the greater Tampa market. She was very patient, did the research to help us with the areas we were interested in and spent an incredible amount of time showing us different properties. Additionally she knows “everyone” in the real estate business and this helped us to get into some last minute appointments. We ultimately settled on Redington Beach. A new property was listed on Wednesday morning, she was there Thursday morning, “facetimed” us on a virtual walk through, we put an offer in that afternoon and had a signed deal on Sunday. “JZ” gets it done and you will enjoy working with her more."

Buyer

"Jenn helped us tremendously in our search for a new home. Ultimately, she sold us on building a new custom home when we could not find an existing one that fit all our needs and wants. Her understanding of the custom home and lot market is exceptional! She is true professional. She goes the extra mile providing in depth research on trends, coupled with sound judgment and analysis of that research. Her follow though is thorough and prompt. She understands the needs of, and how to please the affluent purchaser and seller. In my law practice, I interact with those when range from CEO's to professional athletes. I would not hesitate to recommend Jenn to any of them. In fact, I have recommended her and have received excellent feedback."

Buyer

"Having worked with Jennifer a number of years, I can truly recommend her to anyone looking for a top-notch, hard-working real estate professional. Specifically, Jennifer has done numerous marketing campaigns for our homes. She has beautiful photography done on our homes and personally manages the print design and advertising strategy. She has advertised for us through direct mailings, internet, email, etc. Jennifer doesn’t just sit back and hope things happen, she simply makes things happen. She is a motivated go-getter that earns her commission and as well as her solid reputation. Feel free to call me directly with any questions – I would be happy to further discuss my recommendation of Jennifer to anyone looking for the best in the business."

PW

"As my listing broker, Jennifer was extremely professional, responsive, skillful and strategic. Jennifer was able to sell my home much more quickly than I had even hoped for, and I am confident this was in part due to her strategic advice and recommendations, which all proved to be spot on. I was dubious at first when Jennifer recommended I remove all of my existing furniture and replace it with staged furnishings from a company she has used on prior occasions to assist in the sale of homes. But after Jennifer showed me results from prior properties she had staged and sold, I relented. Thankfully this decision page huge dividends for me, as almost every prospective buyer who toured my home commented on how beautifully furnished the home was. I would highly recommend Jennifer!"

AC

"Jennifer has been working with us for several years now, and as a luxury home builder, I can honestly say it is a pleasure to work with an agent who truly understands the custom home building process as Jennifer does. Her vast personal experience in home building and land development have put her in a position to handle everything that comes her way, and we are always confident in her ability to work for us or with our customers. Jennifer is very much in tune with the needs of luxury home buyers, and more importantly, she puts those needs first. She always goes well beyond the call of duty, and nothing is ever too much for her. If you're looking for a luxury home and you want an agent who will go out of her way to make sure you get what you want, I'd highly recommend giving Jennifer a call. "

GM, Boss & Mennie, Inc.

"Our home was listed and recently sold. The home had been on the market for a couple of years with minimum exposure to potential buyers. In August 2014, we decided to list with Jennifer Zales, who has had sold many high end homes in our area. Jennifer was very professional and knowledgable. Her marketing is top notch. The pictures taken of the house were first rate. More potential buyers than ever visited our home and Jennifer was there for each showing, except for one when she was flooded out in South Tampa! After each showing we heard from Jennifer. The house went under contract in August 2015 and Jennifer kept us informed every step of the way. Our contract period and closing went smoothly. My husband and I would gladly recommend Jennifer Zales. By the way, I am a licensed realtor, not active. And I would use Mrs. Zales again!"

"Jennifer was absolutely amazing, we were looking in the Apollo beach area, went to see one of her listings, we decided the home was not for us, after talking to us and listening to what we were looking for, she showed us one of her other listings in the same neighborhood, bingo it was perfect, We did not have the easiest of closing, where others failed Jennifer came through, she always had a resources for us from mortgage brokers, home warranty, our closing was really late in the evening, she checked in with us to make sure all was well and we had the keys to our new home sweet home. We have bought and sold many property’s since moving to Florida in ’93, we have met one or two good agents, never have we had the quality, professionalism, expertise, knowledge that Jennifer provided to us, she is now our real estate professional for life."

"Jennifer, listed and closed on my home in 6 weeks. She prepared an exceptionally thorough comparable analysis and sales price proposal. She recommended preparations for showing the house to the greatest advantage and supplied an independent organizer who did an outstanding job helping me prepare the house for the market. Jennifer was always present at every showing and follow up showings. She knew the special house features and ensured that potential buyers were well informed. She was fully prepared to discuss any perceived drawbacks and counter with the benefits. Jennifer worked very well w co realtors and their potential buyers. She has an excellent grasp of the negotiations process and a win-win perspective to bring negotiations to positive conclusion. She has a wealth of resources ( organizer, vendors, etc) to fully support the successful market entry and sale of a home."

GM

"Consider yourself lucky if you are reading this review for you have found the finest real estate agent in the Tampa Bay area. As a matter of background I had $1,000,000 plus property on Tampa Bay which I attempted to sell for over 2 years. I then decided to change Realtors and was fortunate enough to choose Jennifer Zales. After our initial consultation Jennifer produced an array of outstanding marketing materials complete with a drone video and a superb selling strategy that resulted in my property being sold on the very first day! I believe Jennifer’s professionalism and extensive knowledge of real estate in the Tampa Bay area to be unmatched. She is a skilled negotiator, very detail oriented and possesses a powerful determination to attain the absolute superior result for her clients. Whether you are a buyer or a seller you will have achieved your very best outcome when you choose Jennifer Zales as your realtor!"

Seller

"We have bought/sold about seven houses in the $1m range in other areas of the country and struggled to find a broker here in South Tampa that really understood the market and was truly at the top of the profession. Out of desperation I hired a stager before we committed to a broker, trying to get the house ready to sell and hoping to mitigate risk of sub-optimal showings. We interviewed about half a dozen brokers, until we found Jennifer. Several brokers we interviewed didn't understand the power of staging at this price point (no kidding) - Jennifer did! Jennifer stepped in and supervised the staging, created and executed on the marketing plan, brought her excellent staff (including someone who could arrange and supervise the tasks we didn't have time for). It made the whole process smooth and efficient - the house sold quickly and everything under Jennifer's control was spot on. No question we will use Jennifer the next time we have to move!"

Seller

"We couldn’t be more pleased with our entire experience with Jennifer Zales. From our first meeting with her, which couldn’t have felt more comfortable, to our closing only a few short weeks later… Jennifer conducted herself with utmost professionalism. She held our hand through the readying process, was ever available to answer our questions or concerns, was always reachable by phone and more often than not she even answered on the first ring! Jennifer was always prompt with showings and treated our home with the care and concern we expected. We trusted Jennifer and were not disappointed in the least. We are very pleased to highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking to find a high-end realtor who will fit like a glove. Jennifer sells herself almost effortlessly because she is genuine. She doesn’t promise what she can’t deliver, knows her business and works very hard delivering results. We knew Jennifer was right for us when we first met her. She made this whole process as easy as it can be and for that we are truly grateful. Thank you so much for everything."
