Jennifer Lillie

    Jennifer Lillie

    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.

    Jennifer was great. Although I was new to the area, she gave me a sense that she really knew her product. It helped to make me feel comfortable with decisions that I made. Sal P., NJ | Home Buyer
    Jennifer Lillies and Tanya were the two best agents you could ask for. They genuinely care about their clients and they work their booties off to help you find the right home for you. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. There is not enough praise in the world to express how grateful I am to have had them on my team during this process. Thank you so much.
    I couldn’t be more thankful for the work and attention I received from The Home Team!!! Jen and Tanya were on top of it!!! My first home purchase was on land contract, so this was all new to me. As a first time home buyer, they were great at walking me through the steps of selling my old home and purchasing my new home. This being an estate sale, there were extra bumps in the road because of the estate attorney. Jen was able to get the attorney on track and get the process moving!!! THANKS JEN!!!! fx2nyhzjxy
    Jennifer was a great realtor timely kind actually have never experienced a realtor of her expertise. I would use them and recommend them highly Lee Collins South Bend Ind | Home Seller
    Jennifer exceeded our expectations; she is an absolute pro. Day one through closing and beyond Jennifer has been there every step of the way. We would recommend her to everyone along with the Home Team. Matthew Hasse South Bend | Home Buyer
    The Home Team was professional, honest, and so helpful to me as a first time home buyer. I felt confident in my purchase with the help of Jen. She was patient and very informative when it came to any questions I had! Both Jen and Stacey have awesome personalities and they make you feel like a friend right away. I appreciate their help and guidance throughout my experience. I completely recommend this team to help with any home buying needs. Jessica G, Mishawaka | Home Buyer
    I had a wonderful experience with Jennifer Lillie, she has gone above and beyond. I will be sending anyone looking to buy to her. Jenniferr is an amazing person. Moving across the country to an unfamiliar place, she gave me a honest opinion on the houses I was looking at and didn't push me into anything I had second guessed. The team is close so I didn't have to get everyone on the same page to get what I wanted to have. I appreciate all of them. amcjones79
    Jennifer from the Home Team gave a detailed presentation on how our home would be marketed. Shortly after listing the COVID 19 broke out and we weren't able to have showings or open houses. Barry came with his new 360 degree camera and gave us one more tool to show off our property. After the resumption of showings and open houses Jennifer never shied away from having open houses literally every weekend. The fact that our home was part of our family trust seemed to confuse Metropolitan Title Company. The closing agent did not seem to have all the correct paperwork for the forwarding of the proceeds from the sale. Dave & Judy Dobbins Augusta, GA | Home Seller
    Would Definitely Recommend Jennifer to all my friends and family. She is/was excellent with local knowledge and expertise with areas with good schools and quite and safe neighborhood and good criteria’s. She hit all the required items on our list and was very patient when it came to showing us the houses. The whole house hunting process to the closing and moving in process was so much more easier with Jennifer’s help and guidance. We loved how enthusiastic and positive she is always and it was very easy to get hold of her. We would like to thank Jennifer and the team for finding our dream home and making the whole process so easy. Thank you, Patel Family Darshana & Ritesh Patel - 1610 Elk Meadow Ct, Osceola IN 46561 | Home Buyer
    We have used the Home Team before and have always been impressed with the true sense of cooperation between the agents. The Home Team are really The Dream Team. They bring together the knowledge, ability and professionalism that we all hope for you in the sale of a home. We are so happy with our choice to sell our home. Dave McCormick, South Bend | Home Seller
    Jennifer was knowledgeable, professional, confidentially comforting and very supportive. Christine, South Bend | Home Seller
    Jennifer was very helpful with the whole process. I was out of state and she handled getting contractors to make some repairs and getting the lawn mowed for me. Leo Wetli, Bloomington | Home Seller
    We will always use Jennifer Lillie and the Home Team when we sell properties in this area! I felt completely safe following Jennifer’s recommendations and suggestions, there is no doubt that she is an expert in the field of real estate. We were supremely satisfied with the sale of our property from start to finish! Listed to Closing in 30 days! Outstanding experience! Jenn Benninghoff | Home Seller
    I used The Home team to sell my house. Communication with the team was great. Someone always got back to me quickly. They kept me updated on how many people were looking at my house and provided me with the feedback from showings. Overall a great process. Eddie Niziolek, South Bend | Home Seller
    Jennifer Lillie did an exceptional job for us! She was always available for our questions and needs. My siblings that met her during our sale also thought she was great! Judy Martz, Mishawaka, IN | Home Seller
    Our experience with Jennifer Lillie was the best experience we ever had in buying a home. Her patience during a difficult decision for us was the utmost courtesy ever extended. Jennifer went above and beyond to make the appropriate efforts that best suited our unique situation. Jennifer had patience with us, when we were undecided about selling and buying a new home. She perseved and never once avoided our calls, she never gave up. I would recommend her and her team to buy or sell any home in her area. Bottom line was without Jennifer and her attention to details and hard working ethics to get us closed and moved into our dream home, might not have happened. Sincerely Roy & Christi Bell | Home Buyer
    Our experience in selling our home was made so much easier with the help of Jennifer Lillie from the Home Team. She knew her business, was helpful, sincere, kind, friendly, patient, understanding, and a delight to know. Mary and Dick (Richard), South Bend, IN | Home Seller
    I was a special situation. I'm a first time home buyer with a lack of experience. I had to find a house quickly but I had a list of requirements that most homes in my price range would not meet. Jennifer's experience and knowledge was a game changer. I full trust in every suggestion she made and I truly feel like that if it wasn't for her, I would either still be in the market frustrated or moving into a house that I really wouldn't be happy with. I can't stress enough what a great job she did. Justin, South Bend | Home Buyer
    I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about Jennifer Lillie. I met her nearly by accident, but when she showed up on the scene, she said, "I have a plan," and that's exactly what I wanted to hear. The house was under contract two days after listing, albeit with a slightly complicated escrow arrangement. She worked with the seller's agent and outside vendors to make sure I would not have to spend any money out of pocket before closing, which, after eight months of paying two mortgages, was of paramount importance. About a week before our scheduled closing, the deal seemed to go south very quickly, with the buyer making ridiculous demands, refusing to set an appointment to close, and letting the clock run out on the contract. This happened on a Friday. By Sunday night Jennifer had resurrected the deal and secured a firm closing. She was not bound by the workweek. She worked day in and day out to get us to settlement. In short, Jennifer is intelligent, diligent, professional, communicative, creative, resourceful, and fiercely protective of her clients' interest. I don't think anyone else could have navigated the intricacies of this transaction, and I am extremely grateful to have had her in my corner. Joshua Giorgio-Rubin, South Bend | Home Seller
    We met Jennifer Lillie when we purchased our property in 2013. We are real estate professionals and fanatics, and have purchased and sold over 50 properties throughout the years in multiple jurisdictions, states, and countries. We tend to drive realtors crazy or burn them out. Not Jennifer...her enthusiasm and passion met ours. She was knowledgeable and interested in every detail of well over 30 properties we looked at or inquired about before we chose to purchase. We ask about and negotiate every detail and Jennifer was right there every step of the way. On the sale side in 2019, we thought of calling NO ONE other than Jennifer. She guided us as to price and marketing duration. Every estimate as to price, timing, property condition, and negotiation was perfectly spot on and accurate. Once the sales contract was signed, she continued to go above and beyond with exceptional service. Examples include providing all utility contact numbers for termination of service purposes, guiding communication with the seller and title company, and, even selling furniture for us and helping us move. We cannot recommend Jennifer highly enough. We WISH we had Jennifer in the other markets where we own real estate. David M., Coral Gables, FL | Home Seller
    Jennifer was highly professional, pleasant and responsive at all times. Communication and responsiveness exceeded our expectations. We were so glad that we had Jennifer to help us with our new build! Her expertise and skills helped considerably as we negotiated the new construction process, which was new to both of us. A new construction is not easy, and she represented our interests very well throughout the process and transaction. Lisa, Osceola, Indiana | Home Buyer
    Jennifer was excellent and always professional; we knew what to expect at all times. Communication and process were both excellent. The house listing/viewing process went very well and the house sold very quickly! Lisa - Mishawaka | Home Seller
    Jennifer was absolutely fantastic in helping me purchase four rental homes at once! She was honest with me about which properties would be good investments and which wouldn't. She negotiated with the sellers agents and she lined up inspections for me when I was out of town. She made the process as easy as it could be. She went above and beyond by creating a binder for each property with essential information, and she linked me up with a reputable property manager. I would highly recommend Jennifer to any real estate buyer or seller! Rachel Dendiu, Mishawaka | Home Buyer
    We loved working with Jennifer Lillie! Whenever we needed help she always returned our calls. She never made us feel rushed. We will work again with her in the future. Great Lady!!! Bruce and Marcia Scott | Home Buyer
    Jen was a great communicator and very prompt at setting up showings, made the process go quickly. Took very good care of issues with both other realtors. And we love the door greeting mat. Dave Palmer | Home Buyer
