About Jennifer

I am a Michiana native. I love my family, the beach, and corny jokes. My husband and I have been together 18 yrs and counting. We have two sons and two fun-loving chocolate lab mixes. Our oldest son is in college and the youngest is in high school. Real Estate is my passion, and I am blessed to do what I love every day. I have nine years in residential real estate, 5 years previously in commercial real estate. Helping families navigate the complex process of buying or selling, and sometimes both at the same time, is what I do best. I am a jack of all trades, thanks to my parents who taught me to be self-sufficient and never to stop learning. I like to think I have a master’s degree in common sense. I have a design background from seven years at Sherwood Williams and am proud graduate of Bethel College. There is not much I can’t do. I love learning anything new. I have renovated a commercial building built in 1890’s, renovated two homes and survived the building process with new construction. I have real-life experience that brings expertise to every transaction. A few fun bits about me: I am a Gemini (a girl never reveals her age). I am a huge animal lover (especially dogs). Water is my favorite drink. I love working out with my husband. It’s our favorite date night. Avid audible reader. I don’t like to admit it but a chocoholic.

Emeric Szalay
COLLINS and CO. REALTORS - LAKEVILLE
About Emeric

I believe that I have a true passion for professionalism. I LOVE what I do, and that is to help my clients work through the process of either selling or buying of real estate. I make myself available to my client virtually all the time. I "hate" voice mail, so for the most part I will take your call unless I am at a closing or with another client, and yes then it will go to voice mail. So lets begin to put this puzzle together, allow me to show you how dedicated I am to "YOU"....

During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in South Bend is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
