Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home

You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter – not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.

Sell a Home

Sell a Home

When it’s time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Home Selling Tactics

Oftentimes buyers don’t visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience – which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that’s sold fast.

What my clients have to say.

As an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here.

Jennifer provided expertise as a realtor. She has a pleasant personality and sincerity that comes across immediately. She was highly recommended by area appraisers and property inspectors for her honesty and integrity in representing clients and knowledge as well as providing excellent services. She provided key recommendations on house features to focus on for quick and optimum return on sale listings. 

Sacco, Seller, 2023

My wife and I went into the home buying process with a lot of skepticism, because of what we heard about the real estate industry. Being first-time home buyers, we were concerned with being taken advantage of or being mishandled. However, I can say without any level of doubt, Jen really cares. She went above and beyond to elaborate on what each step of the process entailed and was very quick to respond to all of our questions, no matter the day or time. She is as professional as she is down to earth, and it was a pleasure to get to know her and work with her. I cannot be more genuine about that. She has my highest recommendation for anyone looking to purchase a home.

John, Buyer, 2021

Jen was AWESOME!! We had been looking for a house in the Broadalbin area that was right for us AND one we could afford for over 2 years when we started working with Jen…She was VERY willing to meet us ANY TIME & was always Patient, Friendly & Honest! She was always willing to answer all of our questions & very knowledgeable in all areas!! No matter how many houses we drug her to she never acted like it was too much work & was always up for more!! We finally found the house we were looking for and couldn’t have done it without her!!! I HIGHLY Recommend Jennifer Olmstead for ANY of your Real Estate needs!!!

Reich, Buyer, 2021

Jen was great during the whole selling process. She helped us pick a competitive selling price and despite the common snags inherent in the selling/buying process (none of which her fault), she helped us successfully sell our home WAY above asking price.

We are very happy with her services and definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Capital Region.

Juan Luis Lopez Fons, Seller, 2022
Jen Olmstead is a diamond in the rough! She is extremely knowledgeable and responsive, fun and fair! Her personality shines and really makes the entire (overwhelming) process SO much more pleasant! I’ve bought 2 homes now through Jen and I will continue to use her for as long as I’m breathing! Thanks for all you do, Jen!
Regina TenEyck, Buyer, 2022
The best home buying experience! There were many hurtles to over come, but Jen and her team got through ALL of them with ease. ALWAYS PROFESSIONAL, polite and and a joy to work with. Jen responded to all my calls, texts within minutes or seconds at all times. I CONSTANTLY recommend her to anyone I know wanting or even just THINKING about buying a home. Jen WILL happily answer all your questions and or point you in the right direction to reach your goals of home buying. I will 100% go through Jen again if I chose to buy or sell again. I am a client for life for Jen!
Sara Silliman, Buyer, 2022
Jennifer was patient and responsive to all of our needs. She was thorough and honest regarding the sale of our 101 year old home. Jennifer worked diligently to find us a new home that checked all the boxes in regards to what we were looking for. She was transparent with all her dealings with the parties involved in each sale. She also understood the stress of selling one home while trying to find another home during this competitive market- she made the process so easy. Buying a home through Olmstead Real Estate Group was so effortless -Jennifer walked us through each step and put us in contact with people we needed to complete both sales. We were very pleased with the Olmstead Real Estate Group and highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
