Jen began her real estate career in commercial real estate working with top Fortune 500 companies, which brought her to an impasse where she was lacking the bond with clients that has always been so important to her. In 2014, she made the leap to residential real estate and she hasn't looked back since. She handed in her business suit for a softer, more personal approach and her priorities were, and still are, very simple –- her clients’ well-being and creating long lasting genuine relationships.
Jen's commitment is to serve her clients in a real and authentic way and she strives to always have a strict pulse on the market, to be responsive, reliable, blunt and in their corner every step of the way. Honesty is not something she lacks, as her clients’ well-being and their goals are why she gets up every morning to do what she does. With honesty also comes both empathy and patience, as this market is not one to navigate alone.
She has lived and loved Toronto, this city that we call home, for the last 10 years. She is lucky enough to be an investor, landlord, owner and agent, allowing her to work with all people, neighbourhoods and properties and to see things from a unique and multifaceted perspective. Her focus is on helping others through the purchase and sale of condominiums, townhouses and executive/corporate relocations in the 416 and the 905.
With a recent move out to tranquil Long Branch, her roots are set and her goals are clear. Jen works tirelessly for her clients, seven days a week, endless hours a day, to help them achieve their biggest dreams and she does it incredibly well, with a smile on her face and a tea in her hand.
“My partner and I worked with Jen twice over the past year and a half. Jen's experience, collaborative approach with her colleagues "across the table," and her friendly, patient, and helpful approach with us, we called on Jen recently to help find a condo to purchase in downtown Toronto. Jen leveraged her collaborative approach with people in establishing a good working relationship with the seller's agent and ultimately our offer was accepted in a multiple-bid situation based, we believe in part, on the strength of the approach Jen brought to the table with the seller and the seller's agent. ”- Eric Sjoding
“As first-time homebuyers, we appreciated having Jen’s expertise to help us navigate through the complex process. We were particularly impressed with the insight Jen has into the buildings we explored: from developer repuations to condo board track records and everything in between. In the end, Jen found us a rarely seen condo unit, in an area of Toronto that we love, that checked all the boxes we were looking for. She gave us sound advice through a multiple-bidding process and kept us on track to ensure a smooth closing. We would highly recommend Jen to our friends and family. ”- Anthony Boland
“My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Jen Heakes at Core Assets. She was attentive of our needs and wants for a house in Toronto and walked us through every single options available. Though this process went for almost 18 months, Jen was extremely thorough and calm throughout the entire process and ended up finding the best house for us at a great price (in a crazy Toronto house market)! We also had Jen sell our condo, where she handled everything and we didn't have to worry at all. We would highly recommend Jen to anyone either buying or selling a house/condo.”- Ed Park
