I love my job and it shows! Originally hailing from snowy, Buffalo, NY, I worked in advertising and marketing for six years before discovering that real estate was my calling. As a licensed Realtor since 2010, I have never lost sight of what is central to this business. YOU, my clients, and what makes the most sense for your lives.
Selling or buying real estate is a process. An exciting, enjoyable and rewarding process, but an important, infrequent process with many steps and questions along the way. I'm here to help you navigate through the challenges and negotiations to guide us to a smooth closing. Let me use my years of expertise to help you sell your property in a competitive market. Let me help you find the new home that not only suits your specific needs but will prove to be a wise investment. Customer service and integrity are the foundation of my work, but your happiness is the driving force. Your satisfaction truly is my reward.
When I'm not hard at work, I'm spending time with my husband, Joe, at our home in South Portland and taking full advantage of everything that our beautiful state has to offer. We moved here in 2013 for nothing more than the natural beauty, and we've been delighting in it ever since. I love showing friends, family, clients and colleagues why we're all truly lucky to live here. In addition to real estate I love nature, the sea, swimming, boating, hiking, reading, film, art, theater and dining out at any number of the incredible eateries at our disposal.
My wife and I decided to take the leap to buy our first home in summer/fall 2020. We reached out to Jennifer after discovering the Town and Shore website, reading her bio and reviews, and seeing she was a local expert in Maine real estate. Jennifer was responsive to our emails (when many realtors were not!), and from our first conversation with her, we felt grateful to have her support on our first home-buying journey! She listened and asked great questions when we explained our situation, took the time to get to know us, has a great sense of humor, and was genuinely invested in finding a home that would fit our needs and dreams. We felt very seen and heard as Jennifer recommended areas that would be a good fit for us. When we ended up falling in love with a house in an area outside of Jennifer's range, she didn't hesitate to put us in touch with folks that could help us — a generous gesture that perfectly encapsulates how much Jennifer goes above and beyond to support people in their home buying process. We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Jennifer, and cannot recommend a more professional, thorough, and wonderful person to work with on one of the most important decisions you'll make in your life! Thank you, Jennifer!

I've been involved in real estate buying, selling and development for forty years. Jennifer Sweeney is the best I have seen and everyone who encounters her said the same thing. She has taken professionalism to the next level.

Jennifer is absolutely the best Realtor I have ever had the privilege to work with. She made my home selling process incredibly easy and was on top of everything. She went far above and beyond what I would expect. I had a lot going on this summer and I thought I was going to be overwhelmed but Jennifer kept me grounded and just made everything so easy. She is not just a great realtor but a great person. I expected to be a client and very quickly I felt like a friend. She genuinely cares about her clients and their families. I will recommend her to everyone I know and if you need a realtor I strongly suggest you call her, she is the best!!!

I LOVED working with Jen to find my next home. Of all the buyer agents I've worked with in the past, none were even remotely as awesome as Jen. Jen won't try to sell you a house, she'll help you find a HOME. And that's a meaningful difference. I knew Jen had my back and I could totally trust her. Plus, while I was primarily looking within 20 miles of her office, I also wanted to see a couple of homes 50-60 miles away and Jen was always gracious and quick to act upon my request. She knows her stuff and she's easy to work with. Thanks Jen, I LOVELOVELOVE my new home!

Jen is amazing to work with. She is honest and down-to-earth and will do whatever it takes to help you find and buy your home. She is super responsive and has a great sense of humor, which comes in handy when dealing with the stress of a real estate transaction. She handled our inspection and closing without us on site, allowing us to save a trip up from NJ, and we trusted her completely with everything. Highly recommended!!!!

Best realtor we have worked with. She did everything in her power to make sure that the sale of our house went smoothly. She monitored the house in our absence, responded to our request in an emergency and saved the house from freezing, Just before the closing when multiple snow storms caused a lot of difficulty clearing the house she was there to help. We recommend her with no reservations.
