Charles “Chuck” Bartolo, Principal Broker of Beach & Bartolo Realtors, is proud to announce that Jennifer Sesma has earned the title of Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker. Beach & Bartolo’s team includes 17 Realtors, nine of which, including Jennifer, have earned the coveted title of Associate Broker.
Jennifer was named the 2020 Rookie of the Year by the Columbia Greene Board of Realtors, and obtained her Associate Real Estate Broker license after 2.5 years as a Licensed RE Salesperson. She has earned multiple National Association of REALTORS®’ [NAR’s] Designations and Certifications, including Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), GREEN, GRI, PSA, RENE, RSPS
Before real estate, Jennifer had a successful career operating a chain of specialty boutiques across Manhattan, Westchester County, and Connecticut. After 16 years in the corporate world, she made a pivot and hasn’t looked back.
Jennifer brings a fresh perspective to her business and she understands that buying or selling a home is a deeply personal experience. With her creative background, years of visual merchandising, and customer service experience, Jennifer knows that first impressions matter with her listings, even in a sellers market. She offers staging consultations, professional photography, video, and virtual tours for all her listings to ensure each listing is represented in the best possible way. Jennifer markets her listings on social media and traditional channels to reach as broad an audience as possible, a win for her seller clients. As an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) she goes the extra mile, guiding her buyer clients through the entire process from the initial search, negotiations, securing an accepted offer, closing the deal on time, and all the other steps in-between.
Jennifer currently serves on the Board of Directors and as the Chairperson of the Education Committee for the Columbia Greene Board of Realtors. She also serves on the Planning Board in the Village of Chatham.
Jennifer is a big fan of old houses, of which there are plenty in the Hudson Valley. She’ll probably be forever working on her 1890s Victorian in the Village of Chatham. In her spare time you may find her gardening or hanging out with her dog and enjoying village life in Chatham.
Jennifer welcomes the opportunity to help you with any of your real estate needs, or simply to answer any Real Estate questions you may have. She can be reached at 518-392-2700 extension 118.
This is a question I’m often asked and there are no simple answers as there are many factors that impact all markets. Most impactful is our limited inventory of residential properties. Many would-be sellers continue to question where they would go should they decide to put their homes on the market. Home prices have risen in just about every market in the US. What we are certain of is that there doesn’t appear to be any conditions where we can expect a surge of new properties coming into the market any time soon. I do believe we will see fewer buyers enter the market as mortgage rates continue to move higher. However, for at least the near future, I see the market to remain a strong sellers market.
