Bio

Jennifer Ley moved to the east coast from the wilds of Wisconsin and by 1994 had made her way from the Village to the Montclair area; she missed getting her hands dirty in a garden. An ad gal (clients included Chanel, Revlon and Estee Lauder), she chose to shift her business focus to real estate in 2002 and never looked back.

Today, Jennifer’s 17 years as a realtor inform her constant search for the best outcome for her clients, whether they be first-time buyers, home owners transitioning between two properties or heirs seeking to net the best result when selling a family home.  A firm believer in a business-for-good model to underpin all her actions, Jennifer’s many repeat customers speak volumes when it comes to the results she’s produced. 

An active supporter of the arts, she serves on the Event Committee and as a docent for the Montclair Art Museum, co-chairs their Rand Forum and for 7 years coordinated niche marketing for the Montclair Film Festival. Her film and photography work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.

In her spare time Jennifer manages a 120 year old restored adobe casita as an AirBNB vacation rental in Santa Fe, NM, which she owns with her husband Kit, a chef at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York. They have a cat named Taco Cat.

In her words: “Buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience. That’s why I am dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service to all my clients. I take great pride in the relationships I build and always work tirelessly on your behalf to help you achieve your real estate goals. My philosophy is simple: Clients come first. I believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, I haven’t done my job. I don’t measure success through achievements or awards but through my client’s satisfaction.”
