There’s a reason Jennifer Halm has been named in Washingtonian as one of the region’s top Realtors for four years running: After 25 years in the business, she continues to embrace change as the industry has moved from newspaper listings to social-media marketing. Halm’s colleagues praise her tech-savvy, as she’s become one of Compass’ most adept at using targeted Facebook and Instagram ads among her many tools to promote clients’ properties—everything from condos to multi-million-dollar estates.
Jennifer’s real estate career began after she moved to Northern Virginia 25 years ago, first in the mortgage lending industry, and then in sales for a prominent luxury homebuilder before moving out on her own. As a result, she’s seen all sides of a transaction, from positioning a home for the market to finalizing the sale. She and her team cover the entire DC region, with licenses in Virginia, DC, and Maryland.
One might say that Jennifer was forced to negotiate from an early age—as the youngest of 11 siblings, the Dallas native had no other choice if she wanted to hold her own in a large household. Indeed, clients still hear the occasional “y’all” while she’s showing a house, but make no mistake: Underneath that polite Southern veneer is a hard-as-nails advocate for her buyers and sellers. Her dedication has earned her honors as a Lifetime NVAR Top Producer, and she has nothing but 5-star ratings in dozens of reviews on Zillow.
Jennifer lives in Great Falls with her husband and has 3 sons who have recently flown the nest. The eldest is a recent graduate of Columbia University and lives in NYC and the second and third attend Boston College and Indiana University Kelley School of Business. When she’s not at work you are likely to find Jennifer volunteering in the community, attending college football games, or spoiling her two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels Bo and June.
Together with her team at Compass, Jennifer is eager to find an equally ideal neighborhood and community for your family.
