    • Jennifer was very professional and responsive throughout our entire process. Have already recommended her to others!! Jennifer went out of her way to accommodate our schedule and she helped me with final preparations, like walk through, as I was in town alone.

      - Kendra Groff
    • We listed our house with Jennifer and had an over-list offer within 24 hours. She is honest, up-front with expectations, and knows chapel hill. We had many choices when choosing a realtor to sell our home, and could not be more pleased with choosing Jennifer Patterson!

      - Margaret Fetters
    • Jennifer was knowledgable and easy to work with, despite a difficult negotiation process with demanding buyers. She navigated the process smoothly and advocated for us! I have high recommendations for her.

      - Grace Austin
    • My experience with Jennifer Patterson was outstanding! She helped me find a new home and connected me with a top knotch mortgage loan officer. The whole process was timely and without any issues. Jennifer was also the listing agent for the sale of my previous home. The house was listed on a Thursday afternoon with an open house on the following Sunday. By the end of the open house there were five offers on the table over asking. The sale of my home went as smoothly as the purchase of my new home. Jennifer is extremely knowledgeable concerning the market in our area and will be your best advocate in the buying or selling process. I could not have been more pleased with my experience with Jennifer as my agent. I would recommend her to anyone considering selling or buying.

      - Anna Russell
    • Jennifer was a great realtor that was very professional, knowledgeable and responsive. She staged our home under a tight timeline and had an open house the following morning, where we received multiple offers. She was always available for questions and guidance during the entire process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in NC.

      - Michael Hecimovich
    • Jennifer was great both personally and professionally. She very informative and patient as we navigated an international move to the Chapel Hill area. We highly recommend working with her!

      - Meghan Lubrano
    • As prospective buyers from out-of-state, primary concerns of ours were lack of local knowledge and missing key parts of the buying process (inspection, etc.). Jennifer went out of her way to discuss different neighborhoods and how they matched our family's needs. She was responsive to every part of the buying process (especially early on with building a competitive offer) and her presence at the inspection helped ease our concerns with buying from out-of-state. Her suggested contacts for the inspection, repairs, and survey all delivered quality work. We would highly recommend working with Jennifer.

      - Patrick Rice
    • Great experience! Jennifer took care of everything. She managed the contractors to get the house ready for the listing--essentially all we had to do was accept the offer and show up at closing.

      - Ryan Thomsen
    • Jennifer has patiently worked with me for 2 years to find the right property to meet my needs. We finally found it and it's now mine. We must have discussed 50 different properties, put earnest money and due diligence on 2 of them that didn't work out. But we finally found a great property that will allow me to live the lifestyle to which I wish to become accustomed. When I'm ready to move into the new property, I will work with Jennifer to sell my current in-town home.

      - Eric Dashman
    • Jennifer has worked with me on several transactions and has provided invaluable guidance throughout every one. It's never high pressure and I always feel like she values the relationships over the transaction. I have referred her several times and they are always impressed.

      - Michele Castle
    • Our house relocation project required significant knowledge for the housing market in Chapel Hill along with high-efficiency to minimize wasteful effort during the house search process because we live 500 miles away. Jennifer Patterson was able to meet our expectations and provided services to greatly reduce the effort to find the appropriate home. In addition, we had some unique financial conditions associated with the purchase. Jennifer has both qualities for real estate and financial knowledge. During the purchasing process, Jennifer demonstrated her ability efficiently and we are completely satisfied with her services. In the end, we purchased a great home that met all of our requirements. We would highly recommend Jennifer Patterson to others looking to relocate to the Chapel Hill area.

      - Susan Roosa
    • Jennifer was great! We had already moved to another state when selling this house and Jennifer handled everything for us so we didn't have to return even once! It was such a stress reducer to have her there to take care of all the odds and ends that go along with this hectic and complex process!

      - Julianna Mendelsohn
    • Within the last year, Jennifer has both helped me buy and sell a home. The last year has been quite difficult for me personally and Jennifer was very supportive and patient while maintaining her professionalism. I was always confident that she had my best interest at heart. She literally went above and beyond. I was new to the area and she was able to connect me with some services that I was in need of. She spent a lot of time, I swear the woman is working 24 hours per day. Although I know I tried her patience, it never showed. She found me my dream home and unfortunately due to continuing health problems was able to sell that dream home for me within a few weeks. She made herself available to providers since I was from out of state and acted as my proxy. Jennifer is also involved in and very knowledgeable about the community, she is family and other oriented. I honestly do not know where she gets her drive. When she sold my home, she donated part of her commission to a charitable cause in my name. Jennifer is not only an excellent realtor, she is truly a good, good person and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I would be more than glad to speak with anyone or email with anyone who would like more information about jennifer as there is no way that I can detail everything she has done for me or express how much i respect her.

      - Maria Tershak
    • We could not have asked for better representation. Jennifer was incredible knowledgeable of the local market, and in fact made us aware of constraints and challenges in selling our property. At the same time she marketed our investment as though it was her own and figured out a way to bring us great value and a fast buyer.

      - Rich Creeghan
    • Jennifer was a pleasure to work with. She was prepared, timely, and professional. Jennifer made space for me on her schedule even when my requests to see properties were last minute. I would recommend Jennifer to others who are buying or selling a property.

      - Beth Duffy
    • Jennifer was great! She was very knowledgable of the local market, was a great negotiator, and strived to make sure she was meeting our needs. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtors.

      - Chris Clarke
    • Jennifer is a true professional and a joy to work with. Her passion for her work and her commitment to her clients is obvious in everything she does. She worked hard, aggressively, quickly to meet our needs. She was very straightforward in the process as well - she told us where she believed our home's strengths to be, but also what she suggested we change and do to improve our outlook. We were delighted with the high quality of the staging she implemented, as well as the excellent quality photos and brochures that were produced. As a result of her hard work - our house was sold at asking price in just two weeks. We would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone who is looking for a realtor!!!

      - Meg Gustainus
    • Jennifer is very personable and responsive. She is a pleasure to work with and will make it a priority to gain your trust and offer honest advice and guidance in preparing your house for sale.

      - Cindy Underwood
    • Jennifer was great to work with. What surprised me most is how she pulled in and managed various resources to have repairs done on our new home and renovation and staging done on our existing home. She made the overall process do-able for us with very few glitches along the way.Jennifer was a wonderful partner throughout the process. I have already recommended her to several friends who have had similarly great experiences. She attended the home inspection when I could not be present and managed all the followup. She also was spot on in positioning my bid.

      - Terry Bradley
    • Jennifer Patterson was referred to us by a close friend. Immediately we were impressed with Jennifer's willingness to support a slow pace for us to part with our house of 40 years. Jennifer came prepared with comparable price information to help us position our house correctly in our market area. Although Jennifer told us that there might be hiccups along the way to a successful closing. We did not for see a property encroachment dispute with our neighbor over a 20 year old fence they had accidently placed slightly on our property. Jennifer aggressively reached out to the surveyor to come to the property and talk with the neighbor. This action resulted in getting an encroachment document signed that satisfied all parties and facilitated a timely closing. We highly recommend Jennifer Patterson.

      - Diane Lafferty
    • Jennifer explained to us with great detail the entire process which was great since we were first time home owners... She patiently took us to several houses before we finally found the right one. Thanks for everything!

      - Luis Negroni
    • I would definitely recommend Jennifer to friends and family looking to buy or sell in the area. Not only is she knowledgeable about the area in terms of neighborhoods, schools, parks, and other community amenities, she was extremely responsive with email or phone calls and easy to reach whenever we had questions. She walked us through the process from house-hunting to closing on our first home, and we had a lot of fun in the process. You spent hours riding around town with a realtor and Jennifer made the experience really enjoyable. We are happy in our new home and don't plan to move any time soon but whenever we do we will be giving her a call!

      - Patrick Dillon
    • Jennifer was recommended to us by a friend, and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her to find a house. She was knowledgeable, flexible, and made time to get us to the houses we wanted to see. She never made us feel rushed and explained the home buying process very well (this was our first home-buying experience). She also made good recommendations for inspectors, attorneys, etc. when it came time for that. She's the type of person you want to stay in touch with after the whole process is done, very friendly and personable!

      - Louise Giffin
    • I have yet to meet Jennifer in person, but I did speak with her on the phone. She's very friendly, and set me up with a site to review properties in my parameters and sent me some mortgage broker information her area (where we are looking to relocate). She's giving me information as requested without being pushy, etc

      - Lisa Argue
    • Jennifer is very knowledgeable, professional and there to help in what can be a tense process. I was hired into a new position at a local unviersity and was moving from the other side of the country. I had limited time to find suitable housing and need considerations as my home that I was leaving needed to be sold prior to moving to a more permanent living situation here. I would highly recommend her.

      - Randi Wasik
    • Jennifer was a pleasure. I felt she always had our best interest in mind and not just about making a sale. She was responsive to our requests in a timely manner. I was impressed by her and highly recommend her.

      - Anonymous
    • ennifer was a pleasure to work with. She was both very professional and personable. She was very responsive to our inquiry and happy to show us lots of houses (some of them twice). She was also really good when negotiating with the seller and about conveying our concerns over some of the inspection issues in a professional way. Jennifer was recommended to us by some friends, and we will definitely be recommending her to some of our friends.

      - Nik Staustalli
    • Jennifer is truly outstanding, and I highly recommend her. As a first-time homebuyer, I was very worried about making every mistake in the book. I had several non-negotiable specs for house choices that made the search a challenge, but Jennifer found over 20 houses for me to review online, several of which were great fits. The total time for the search was half of what I expected because the options I was given were already in the ballpark after her careful screening. She taught me everything I needed to know and worked at all hours, including showing me houses on Good Friday and completing all the forms for my offer after 9 PM that night. Another bid came in during the process, and I would have lost the chance to buy the house if Jennifer had not worked so late. Because of her efficiency and incredible work ethic, we secured my first-choice house, and I closed on it a few weeks ago. Her communication skills are superb. She made sure that the interaction with the realtor and seller were cordial and productive. She has a very strong network of colleagues who do inspections, contracting, surveys, painting and other indispensible services for homebuyers. Her recommendations have made the post-buying period just as high-quality and efficient as the buying process. You will be VERY glad you chose her as a realtor during and after your purchase!

      - Margaret Gourlay
    • Jennifer instills confidence and responds to all concerns quickly. She negotiated with a challenging seller and seller's agent in a very professional manner. I am glad I chose her to represent me. When things got complicated I was able to rely on her experience and expertise.

      - Sally Mehalek
    • Jennifer went the extra mile for us in all aspects as we were looking for a place for our daughter. First contact was a query via a post on Zillow and her response was immediate. She provided multiple listings similar to what we were looking for and made suggestions regarding price, HOA, taxes and proximity to bus routes. Jennifer took time away from her family vacation to communicate with us and methodically showed us multiple properties (about 8 listings) over a couple of weekends. Once we settled on a property, she was extremely efficient with the offers, negotiations, contract and so on. She provided answers to all our questions and responded with details in writing via email even at midnight. Jennifer stayed in close touch till closing. Jennifer treated us like family and we believe we have made a friend. Thank you Jennifer.

      - Bill Rizk
    • Jennifer went the extra mile for my husband and I in finding a place for our daughter to live. Not only was Jennifer accessible, responsive and available at all times, she was also very patient with my husband who had a lot of questions and is particular when it comes to any purchase. Jennifer demonstrated her attention to detail through out the whole process. Jennifer provided a home inspector, a termite person and even an A/C and heat recommendation. We also used a closing lawyer suggested by Jennifer. In short, she did all the work for us. Thanks for everything.

      - Maria Rizk
    • Jennifer was an excellent realtor! We really enjoyed working with her, and she was always very very responsive to all of our questions. She also got back to us quickly and was quite helpful with the whole buying process.

      - Sheena Dasani
    • After couple of attempts with other unprofessional agents, we finally decided to go with Fonville Morisey Realty. Being a first time home buyer, it was very confusing and difficult to make decisions, but luckily Jennifer Patterson came to our rescue. Jennifer was very professional, knowledgeable, and committed to finding our first home. When we were in dilemma about the area, and the price she explained how to judge the price based on the area . She made the process stress-free and we closed the deal in less than 2 weeks. Jennifer is honest, professional, and dedicated, any questions regarding the deal she will be there to answer and we highly recommend her service.

      - Kathy Vreeland
    • Jennifer has done a phenomenal job from start to finish. My wife and I were first-time home-buyers, and when we decided to start looking into buying we started by sending emails to multiple realtors around Chapel Hill. We received the typical boilerplate responses from a few others, but were blown away when Jennifer called us within minutes of sending our inquiry, spending 45 minutes demystifying the process. That set the tone for what would be a great experience with Jennifer, who goes above and beyond to help you make the right choices, from the inspector to the contractors to the mortgage specialists. Jennifer is super personable but also persistent, working hard for a great deal and always willing to go the extra mile, out of her way, to show you something new. Here we are, a couple of weeks after closing, and she's still actively a great resource, recommending contractors for our various kitchen renovation tasks. One last quality not to neglect - Jennifer made my wife and I feel comfortable throughout the whole process, providing clarity for overwhelming scenarios and showing genuine interest in how things are going. A few days ago she sent a personal email, excited to see how our kitchen renovation was going. She was a friend to us throughout the whole process, thanks Jennifer!

      - Andrew Reinhardt
    • Jennifer was competent, professional, friendly, knowledgeable and very responsive when we had questions or concerns about a property. Her integrity was beyond question. She provided excellent advice as we negotiated for the property that we eventually purchased for 13% below asking price and for 30% below original asking price. I highly recommend her

      - Ben Causey
    • "Buying a house is the most important financial transaction most people will make in a lifetime," that is what I was told everytime. Jennifer has been honest with her opinions on houses that we have seen and if we asked her thoughts about the property. And we all know that transactions are complicated sometimes with all the jargons and terminology involved she listens to our needs and takes the time to explain things that we don't understand and most of all she helps us get other services needed to take care of before that final transaction of getting a home. I highly recommend Jennifer!

      - Aimee Dumbumaya
    • First class handling of our sale. Since we are from out of state she took initiative in managing @ $18,000 in repairs needed to get property ready for sale. Contacted the right contractors for expeditious handling of the repairs. Very knowledgable of the local market, including legal resources. We would not hesitate to use her again and highly recommend her.

      - Richard Daffner
    • Jennifer helped us move long distance to South Durham, NC. We are very appreciative for all the extra support she provided us as first time home buyers on a limited schedule. She went above and beyond to show us homes, explain our options and help us choose the best place for us! Most importantly she was extremely quick to respond to our emails, calls and many questions.Jennifer navigated us through the process and tactfully dealt with a couple minor obstacles that arose. We cannot thank her enough! Jennifer is highly recommended!

      - David Kell
    • I really appreciated how patient and thorough Jennifer was while working with me. She did a great job of helping me know how to navigate the safer areas in town, and I am really satisfied with my purchase.

      - Rachelle Leckie
