Since entering residential real estate, I have had the great pleasure of assisting many wonderful clients with the purchase and sale of homes. It has been an exciting, fulfilling and fast-paced experience which ultimately afforded me the honor of being selected as one of Realtor Magazine’s national “30 under 30”.
As a proud of member of Realtor Magazine’s class of “30 under 30” I invite you to read a few testimonials from past clients. I feel very fortunate that many of the people I assisted are now great friends, and I am grateful for their support. I look forward to the opportunity to meet with future clients who are interested in residential real estate in the Del Mar and surrounding San Diego market.
Treat yourself to the best in the business – the Anderson Coastal Properties team! We listed our house with Anderson and were thrilled with the results: exceptional service and communication; a thorough, creative marketing strategy; superior market knowledge and experience; and best of all, a “sold” sign on our house within 4 days!

We loved working with Jennifer and the Anderson Coastal Properties Team! My husband and I moved from Texas with open minds on different areas of North County to call home. On our first visit to San Diego, we viewed properties with Jennifer from Bird Rock to Carlsbad. Jennifer was able to provide us with insight on each area as well as amazing recommendations for food and activities. This allowed us to really familiarize ourselves with each area. With Jennifer’s assistance, we narrowed our search area to Del Mar and Carmel Valley. Within a short amount of time, our beautiful home was found. Jennifer was a rock star throughout our lengthy negotiations and helped immensely with the closing of our home since we were still living in Texas. Jennifer continues to be a wonderful resource for us as we settle into our new life in San Diego. We are so grateful that we chose Jennifer and her team and would highly recommend allowing their expertise to assist you!

Working with Jennifer, Nancy and Hayden of Anderson Coastal is like spending time with friends who happen to be very experienced and skilled in helping you buy or sell a house. They are a delight to be around–smart, personable, funny, and conscientious. These qualities helped me choose them, because I knew it would be easy to communicate during a long and complex process. But my decision was also based on the realization that compared to other agents we met–and we met dozens–they put action before talk. They are informed, precise and proactive where others had been pleasant but general. Let’s face it: buying or selling a house (and we’ve done both with Jennifer and team this year) is an unpredictable experience, no matter how much you plan. But our family was able to face each step of the way calmly and with confidence because we had Anderson Coastal on our side. Their combined skills of critical analysis in this industry meant each transition was smooth and straightforward for us. We are grateful to the Anderson team for their help this year, and even more grateful for their genuine care. We recommend them wholeheartedly, and look forward to many years of continuing friendship.

As first time homebuyers and sellers, we went into this experience not knowing what to expect. Jennifer took us through the process in a very professional and informative manner. She showed patience when explaining the process, communicated clearly with us by letting us know what to expect and anticipate. But, it was Jennifer’s incredible knowledge of the real estate business, contracts, and negotiation that truly impressed us! Jennifer and her team are the best – helpful, knowledgeable, and organized. We could not think of going through this process with anyone other than Jennifer and her team! Thank you!!
Anthony and Shelby M.
The Anderson Coastal Properties team lives up to its’ lofty reputation! Not only do they operate at an exceptional level of competence, their prompt service and overall professionalism made the process of selling our home as smooth as possible. Moreover, with 2 young kids and a dog, Jennifer and her team were always happy to accommodate our busy schedules. We can’t recommend them enough!

Amidst moving to San Diego from the east coast, starting a new job, and our first baby on the way, we decided to add buying our first home to the list. Fast forward a couple months, we are living in our dream home. Jennifer and her dedicated team were the only reason that we could have accomplished this, under the time constraints that we had established and with such a wonderful outcome. And to be candid, after having worked with her, we would not have wanted to share this experience with anyone else but Jennifer. From our first conversation to our last, Jennifer provided us with continual insight and guidance on all aspects of the process (as well as occasional handholding).
Jennifer understands the market well and was helpful in ensuring we were up to speed on market trends and dynamics so we could set our expectations and adjust strategy as necessary. With respect to her knowledge of the area, she provided invaluable market intel on every property/neighborhood in which we were interested. She armed us with the necessary information to properly prepare our offer package well ahead of submitting offers. When the time came, we were more than equipped and had a solid offer right from the get-go. Her guidance on bidding strategy combined with negotiation style is what resulted is the ultimate selection of our offer (I should note that we won out on a home that had 20 competing offers!). Furthermore, she has a keen understanding of the mindset of other parties (both the seller and other potential buyers) which positioned us well in such a competitive situation.
In terms of execution and closing the deal, Jennifer continues to add value from coordinating the necessary inspections to finalizing documentation with the escrow company. Following the inspection period, she was even able to further negotiate a material price concession which is unheard of given the number of offers trailing us. There was never a moment during the transaction in which she did not do whatever it took to keep us informed and comfortable. Jennifer was always reachable and happy to answer any and all questions we had (as naïve as they might have been).
Throughout the entire process, Jennifer treated us like close friends rather than purely clients. Jennifer is truly one of a kind and if you have the opportunity to work with her, do it.
Brit and Eddie C.
We are so thankful we found Jennifer Anderson at Anderson Coastal Properties. She and her team were very professional, and absolutely wonderful to work with! First we met for an initial consultation, and she had us complete preliminary steps before we looked at homes so we would be ready to go. She and her team provided several listings that fit our needs in the area we wanted, and were available to show us places during times that fit our schedule. We found a place we liked the first day and Jennifer immediately created an offer package with a strong presenation to the seller. We were thrilled that they accepted our offer the next day, and also impressed how Jennifer was able to negotiate a deal with the seller that allowed for flooring budget and credit towards closing costs. We even closed a week early! Thank you Jennifer and Reanna for a job well done! We love our place and couldn’t be happier.
Matt and Katy C.
Jennifer and her team did a fantastic job selling our condo! I couldn’t have been happier. We got three offers on the first day it was available for sale and most were above our asking price. She was able to secure a backup offer which protected us when the appraisal came in low and we were able to negotiate with the buyer to cover the shortfall at the buyer’s expense. I highly recommend Jennifer and would hire her again in a second. In contrast, I had the same condo listed with another agent before and had a very poor experience.
Jennifer was very easy to work with, very knowledgeable, and made me feel confident throughout the process. She never tried to push me into doing anything and always offered options and suggestions instead. I always felt like she had my best interests in mind. Additionally, I thought Jennifer and her team went above and beyond. I was selling the condo from another city and we handled everything remotely which included things like advice and coordination with house cleaners and plumbers. Everything went so smoothly.
All in all, Jennifer and her team are great and I highly recommend them!

I wanted to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for your exceptionally professional, competent, and personable handling of the sale of my Mom’s condo in San Diego. You are both a real pleasure to work with and your ability to somehow make complex transactions seem easy were especially appreciated! The fact that you were able to effect a sale for more than our asking price was no less admirable! I also very much appreciate your assistance after the sale in working with me on my Mom’s relocation and moving issues.
Again, thank you for all your efforts. I can only wish that all businesses could be managed with such extraordinary care and professionalism!
I was introduced to Jennifer and her team by a friend who had also won the Realtor Magazine “30 Under 30” award. As an out of area, first time home seller I wanted to make sure the team I chose would be able to handle all the details on my behalf and keep me informed. Among the many steps in preparing for market, over phone call she took me through an offer workshop to help me understand the paperwork and how we would be negotiating. Her team helped move my tenants out and coordinated everything required to bring my home to market- which made selling my home easy on me! In addition to our going communication, we touched base weekly to cover marketing results, showing feedback and market activity in greater detail.
The building my condo was located in was under going litigation and Jennifer took the extra time to ensure the buyer we selected would be able purchase and close on time. There were points in the negotiations where the buyer and their agent took a firm stance but Jennifer was able to keep everything together and bring us to a successful close! Jennifer and her team are proactive, knowledgable, creative problem solvers – it was a pleasure to work with them!
Jennifer is an excellent agent! She is organized, responsive and enjoys being a realtor. Jennifer will take the time to understand your needs and goals and tailor her approach to meet your goals. She is also an excellent communicator. She will update you weekly or as frequently as you would like. You can trust her with your listing whether you are local or as in my case, half way across the country.
If you are searching for a Real Estate Agent, I would HIGHLY recommend Jennifer.
Julie & Todd S.
Our experience with Jennifer could not have gone better. She was everything we wanted in a real estate agent and more. We truly appreciated how prepared she was at every interaction and her communication was consistent, informative, and helpful. Being out-of-town buyers, it was so nice to be able count on Jennifer to get things done, as well as guide us through the process. She went above and beyond and we enjoyed every interaction. We recommend Jennifer wholeheartedly!
Jennifer is awesome. From the moment you begin working with her, you get the sense that you’re being taken care of. She truly cares about her client’s needs above everything else. You’ll never feel rushed, always feel informed, and always feel like she has your best interests in mind. She’s got that perfect mix of being a knowledgeable agent who really cares. If you’re looking to purchase in the Del Mar area, I wouldn’t hesitate using Jennifer. She’s a gem.
Jennifer is an exceptional individual who knows how to help her customers get what they need and want. She is very efficient and therefore very effective in accomplishing her goals. She is very thorough and streamlines her business so that nothing is left missing, setting the bar for a client-centered business. She is also one of the most dedicated and hard-working individuals I’ve ever met. I highly recommend her if you’re looking to buy or sell real estate in North County San Diego.
Jennifer is an awesome agent! She goes above and beyond, is organized, responsive and as others have mentioned – really excited about real estate! She is very thorough in understanding your specific needs and goals and knows how to break the process down into easy to understand steps. Jennifer places a high priority on communication but most importantly she makes things happen!
I would highly recommend Jennifer – she is the agent that will go out and get what you want! Plus she’s a pleasure to be around, hilarious and easy on the eyes.
Jennifer and Nancy of Anderson Coastal Properties did an amazing job selling our home in Del Mar. These ladies epitomize professionalism and extraordinary customer service. We chose Anderson Coastal because of their exceptional marketing strategies, knowledge of the market, and their ability to negotiate the best price for our home. Jennifer and Nancy were in constant communication with us before, during, and after the time our house was on the market. Selling your home is a stressful time for anyone, but Team Anderson made sure that we were always informed, aware, and comfortable with their efforts.
Diana, Arlene and Dorrie
Jennifer is one of the kindest and most professional people I have ever met. I’ve worked in the finance industry so I have a highly developed BS meter and high expectation in terms of service providers. She and her team helped my family and I sell my grandmother’s home after her death last summer. She helped us through an extremely emotional process and guided us with every step of the decision-making and pre-market preparation process. No task was too small. I will rely on Jennifer and her team for any real estate needs going forward. Selecting Jennifer and team as our realtors was one of the best decisions I ever made.
Jenny and Nate B.
Jennifer is one of the rare people you will work with where you genuinely know she cares for you as a person and not just a client. Real estate is a very personal investment and Jennifer takes the time to understand your needs and makes sure you are comfortable with the process every step of the way. She is extremely dedicated and does not take your trust for granted. I would highly recommend Jennifer to all of my friends, family, and colleagues and know without a doubt they would be in great hands!
Patrick & Mandy W.
My girlfriend and I chose Jennifer as our agent to help us find a place and she was FANTASTIC. First and foremost, she took the time to get to know what we were looking for. She is an extremely good negotiator and got us a great deal in a seller’s market. Jennifer is readily available on her cell and answered all of my questions whenever I called, and more importantly was super friendly and personable. I would highly suggest her and is a trustworthy agent.
William and Carol
We felt so at home working with Jennifer. Her professionalism was above all great! We consider Jennifer as part of the family now. Thanks for everything Jennifer.
Jennifer is a one of a kind, force of nature real estate agent! No wonder she is on the 30 under 30 list, and a prestigious one at that! I have had the pleasure of working with Jennifer as a service provider and saw how well she worked for her clients. I respect her and her work ethic!
Jennifer Anderson is great to work with. She is kind, professional, on task, and brings a real human element to real estate. In today’s complex and very fast world, it is truly a joy to work with someone who sees the big picture and understands what is really important in life!
Jennifer rented out a house for us in Aug 2013 and did a fantastic job. She managed the whole screening process and helped get a rental price higher then listed. She is wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her!
Jennifer will make a great addition to the office of Willis Allen. She is quite confident, very intelligent and has lots of enthusiasm. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate industry. She has had great success winning the 30 under 30 award! Best of luck Jennifer.
Brian & Debbie N.
We had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Anderson during the sale of our town home. She is knowledgeable, professional, and all around a great real estate agent. She advised us what to do in a multiple offer situation and it turned out great. We received an offer on our home that exceeded our expectations. We’ve had such a great experience working with Jennifer and really appreciate how she did everything she could to make sure we were getting the best deal on our home.
Jennifer succeeded in selling the property far beyond my expectations. She is professional, knowledgeable and understands the real estate market. Jennifer is not just a Realtor, she is also project manager. She provided me with legal advisers, staging advisers, and handymen to help me get my property ready when I was ready to sell. She provided good suggestions around the marketing, staging and timing of the listing of the property. Working with Jennifer was wonderful.
Bill and Allyson W.
Jennifer has a natural openness that would make it difficult to dislike her. She adapts her interactions to suit the client’s style. I quickly felt comfortable with her, sensing that she was more than competent in her field, yet honestly wanted us to get the home that was best for us. I took my husband to his first open house to show him why that particular house would not work for our needs, yet that exact house is the one we happily purchased a few days later.
In between, Jennifer and the team assisted us in looking beyond cosmetics to consider the changes that could make that house our home. Jennifer put us in touch with the architect who could create the solutions we could not imagine by ourselves. She has made the process fun. While she certainly had other clients, we felt she was always available to meet our needs.
Jennifer pays attention to detail. When we were negotiating a minor request that a group of plants be left by the sellers, Jennifer changed her afternoon plans to meet me at the house just to be certain that she was correct. And the group’s gifts to us after the sale were not only artsy flowers that were just my style, but also a tote bag Jennifer knew I would like because of an earlier casual conversation. That had nothing to do with real estate, but with a personal connection with her client.
Jennifer’s interest in the renovations we have planned is genuine, her asked for advice was excellent, and she included one epiphany free of charge. I know she is eager to see our results, and I look forward to seeing her again, as a friend now. We sincerely hope this is our last house purchase, but we would definitely use Jennifer again as our realtor, and recommend her to others. We have bought and sold several homes, but our experience this time was our best.
Awesome service! Dynamic advertisement strategy. Quick response; good suggestions in staging; great in coordinating repairs and escrow. Thank you very much Jenn!
I know Jennifer because we have served together on committees representing realtors in the Silicon Valley. Jennifer is intelligent, articulate and engaging. She has been very conscientious in performing her committee roles. Jennifer is the most tech savvy realtor that I know, and that is saying a lot in the Silicon Valley. She willingly shares her knowledge and her enthusiasm and encouragement have persuaded me, and others, to expand our tech knowledge. She is a strong team player and I am sure that she is a very effective realtor.
Jennifer and Nancy MADE my home buying experience! From our initial consultation to the day I got my keys – I knew I was in good hands and that no detail would be overlooked. It was my first time buying a house, so I was understandably overwhelmed. Jennifer and her team made sure I was well versed on all the paperwork and was pre-approved before we viewed our first property. That way when we were ready to put in an offer I was 100% comfortable with all the paperwork and didn’t feel rushed.
Every step of the way, I knew what to expect – I never felt like I was being sold or that she was downplaying my concerns in a property just to make the sale. It was clear they had my best interest in mind! Their negotiation advice & offer presentation helped me win my house in a multiple offer situation! Whether it is your first home purchase or 100th, their knowledge, love for negotiations, positive energy and level of professionalism is unparalleled! Even after I had my keys, Jennifer has been so helpful recommending contractors and handymen etc., I feel like I have such a good resource going forward and count Jennifer as a friend. I highly recommend Jennifer and Nancy Anderson of Anderson Coastal Properties, and can’t wait to use them on my next home purchase when I upgrade from my starter home!
My wife and I had the absolute pleasure of working with Jennifer and her team. This was our first home purchase and Jennifer made the experience of dealing with hundreds of documents that needed signatures and other mandatory California disclosure documents that I seriously doubt had anything to with home purchase, seem like a walk in the park. Jennifer was the bright light of our home purchase experience, and showed up in person at every single step of the purchase experience, including a middle of the day spontaneous trip to the HOA management company, to extract the requested HOA documentation, from an unresponsive manager. I highly recommend Jennifer, and will be looking forward to working with her again, once we need to move on from our starter home. Thank you Jennifer!
Last April I began the unpleasant task of finding a new home. Not being a procrastinator, and needing my new home by July 1st, I selected a realtor and started the gruesome process three months beforehand. After meeting with my realtor and giving all the specifics needed to search for my needs we were off and running…. So I thought. After four weeks and several phone calls, by me, I had looked at only a couple potential homes and was realizing my realtor wasn’t working at the pace in which I expected him to. I asked a couple of friends and was referred to another realtor. I sat with this realtor and once again gave all the criteria needed to fit my needs and desires. Having TWO realtors working for me I was feeling comfortable again that I would find my new home very soon. Another four weeks went by and the only thing that changed was that I was chasing after two realtors instead of one.
Panic mode was beginning to set in. I only had four weeks left to find my home. My frustration level was rapidly increasing. I again asked a friend and was given Jennifer’s name and number. I contacted her and explained my situation and my experiences with the other two realtors that I was using. Jennifer was calm and professional and encouraged me to be calm and let her go to work for me. Quite honestly I was reluctant and was ready to go at it alone and start doing all of the searching myself. I hung up the phone with plenty of doubt in my mind that she was going to be any different than the others.
Two days after my initial contact with Jennifer, I found my email box inundated with potential homes. I literally could not keep up with the emails as they poured in over the next week. Jennifer called ME to ensure that I was receiving her emails. I knew immediately that the other two realtors were no longer needed… I knew that she was going to take care of me.
Jennifer set up and took me on several viewings over the following week. We narrowed it down to two homes in only a two week time frame. There was much competition for these homes as San Diego is an extremely desirable place to live. Jennifer was diligent and creative in her process of guiding me through the process and working with the other agent to convince all parties that I was the best candidate.
After only two weeks we secured my home with a week to spare. Jennifer is a very intelligent, diligent, and professional woman that helped restore my faith in people in her profession. I had all but given up on agents when she came in and took care of business. I will never forget her diligence and professionalism while showing compassion and concern. I can never thank her enough.
My husband and I are proud first-time homeowners as of a two months ago – but we could not have done it without Jennifer and her remarkable colleagues at the Sereno Group (see my review for “Alex Wang – Sereno Group” for the background). We were so so so impressed by how Jennifer listened to our home-buying needs, spent time getting to know us and our preferences, taught us critical tips about house visits and offers, and generally went above and beyond any good – or great – realtor’s duties. When we closed on our home (in record time, I might add), Jennifer remained a trusted resource and advisor on our renovations and move.
Jennifer is amazing with details, and follows through on every need efficiently. She is also a phenomenal communicator – dedicated to keeping her clients informed, in control, and ultimately at ease. Most of all, Jennifer is one of the most sincere and enthusiastic people you will meet who clearly LOVES real estate. This mix of skill, warmth and passion does not come by often, particularly in such a critical and potentially life-long role as “our realtor!” In sum, we are so pleased by our experience working with Jennifer and recommend her wholeheartedly.
Jenn is an extremely personable and reliable realtor. I met her at an event with the Urban Land Institute in San Diego and already had a very good impression of her. When my relatives were looking for a beachfront property and I texted Jenn at a late evening hour, she got back to me right away with MLS listings which I totally didn’t expect because it was late. She always responded right away for our requests and has proven herself as extremely knowledgeable and competent. She knows the San Diego beach properties very well and helped us with having realistic expectations for pricing. Highly recommended!

My fiancé and I recently worked with Jennifer to find us a great place to live in San Diego. We were moving from Los Angeles, and needed someone locally in San Diego to be able to find us a property with a short turnaround time.
Jennifer is organized, friendly, very responsive, detail oriented and on top of it — she made the whole process easy for us and kept us on task at all times. I definitely recommend Jennifer’s services to anyone looking for a new home!!
It is my first time buying a home and I definitely am thankful to have Jennifer help me with me during this monumental season of life. Jennifer is a kind, upbeat, caring, knowledgeable agent that really knew the area in which I was looking for a home. She accompanied me through several house hunting trips, explaining everything I needed to know about the homes and what I needed to be aware of when buying. She anticipated my needs and did her research in providing me answers before I asked them! Jennifer is also a very perceptive agent, reading into the situation as well as what I’m thinking. Home buying became less of a burden and more fun when working with her, which is great since the area is so competitive. Jennifer will be a blessing to whomever needs her help!
Jennifer and her team were able to make my purchasing decision very easy. They had a systematic approach to educating me about the local market, available inventory, realistic expectations and how to identify/close viable targets. It was very easy to work with Jennifer.

We recently engaged Jennifer Anderson and her team at Willis Allen Real Estate to assist us with a vacation rental. We have found them friendly, knowledgeable, professional and very service oriented.
Their attention to detail and consistant follow up are both beyond our expectations. They truly are a pleasure to work with!
Jennifer is an amazing real estate agent. She has a lot of positive energy and genuinely cares about finding a great property at a good price for her clients. She was also really patient in listening to our needs and touring properties with us.
Like Alex, I think of her more as a trusted friend that a real estate agent – thank you Jennifer for your help!
Simply the best! Consummate professional, a go-getter, and extremely enthusiastic. You definitely want her on your team!
Amazing energy, knowledge, determination and enthusiasm!
I had the opportunity to work with Jennifer at the Nordstrom Flagship store in San Francisco. We were both Personal Stylists at the time. Jennifer was by far one of the top producing stylists at the store and set a great example of what it takes it be a successful stylist with repeat clientele. She was always extremely focused while at work and gave her full attention to her clients while working with them, both while in the store and outside of the store with follow ups. As I’ve witnessed her skills as a top selling personal stylist and sales associate, I have no doubt that she is now an amazing real estate agent who is knowledgeable, trustworthy and extremely efficient. I now also work in the real estate industry in Hawaii and believe she would be a great agent to work with for both your buying and selling needs.
Even when in college, working for us (at CBRE) as an intern, Jennifer demonstrated a level of maturity and sophistication well beyond her years. She is an extremely smart and driven individual who uses her many talents to get things done. It’s no surprise that Jennifer continues to excel in her residential real estate career.
