About Janeen

How can I put you at ease during a complex process? By listening to you and learning about your lifestyle and needs. Tell me about your children, your pets, and the things which are most important to you. The relationship that I build with my clients is based on honesty and trust which fosters a smoother home buying or selling process.

I grew up in the Midwest and officially made Chicago my home in 2004. My interest in real estate started with my appreciation of art, architecture, and interior design. After purchasing a loft in University Commons near UIC/Little Italy and a townhouse in Dearborn Park in the South Loop, I knew I wanted to be involved in the Chicago real estate community.

As a former educator, I have the ability to patiently advise and coach my clients about the home buying process and I have extensive experience with first time purchasers. I am attentive to seller’s expectations and can put an effective plan into action by paying attention to details and answering your questions in a timely manner.

If you are buying, selling, or leasing, my goal is to make you smile!

When I am not working with clients or keeping abreast of the Chicago real estate market, I can be found walking Buddha (our dog), biking, or exploring a new restaurant with my husband and son.

I would love to meet you and let’s work together! Call me, text me, or email me anytime!

“When we buy again Janeen Hayes will be the only person we call.”

“We moved to Chicago during the summer of 2021. For several months we had a challenging time as we attempted to get settled. During the Fall of 2021 we realized we needed to secure a stable living space but we didn’t really know anyone in the area to help us. Enter Janeen Hayes! When we connected with Janeen (who connected with us after hearing about some of our troubles through mutual contacts) she was the perfect fit. She is professional and authentic. She is knowledgeable but not pushy. She was patient with us as this would be our first purchase in Illinois. There was never a time where I felt she was not available to our family. You can really tell she is working with/for us rather than pushing her own agenda. When we buy again Janeen Hayes will be the only person we call.”

“I very much appreciate Janeen for helping me purchase my first condo!”

“I was really anxious as a first-time buyer and she helped guide me through the entire process. She is super attentive and responded quickly to my questions and concerns. She provided great recommendations for other parts of the process as well – legal, mortgage, home inspections. You should definitely work with Janeen to buy or sell your property! She has a bright and welcoming personality that helps lessen the stress of everything.”

“Working with Janeen is amazing!”

We called her to manage our condo in the South Loop when we were moving out of state and she was able to get us a super reliable tenant. When that person moved out, she was able to take care of everything for us to get the tenants switched out while we were still out of state. When we decided to move back to Chicago, we decided to call Janeen again as she had been so good the last three years! Janeen met with our parents every weekend and took us on Facetime tours of all the houses until she found us the perfect one in a location we had never thought about. The location and house was everything we could have asked for. We were able to do the closing the week we moved back to Chicago. Everything in the whole process was super smooth and Janeen and her team really make the process of buying a home easy.  Janeen really listens to what you want and she knows what you need! We is super responsive, sometimes calling at the strangest hours because that was the only time we were available. Janeen treats you like family and she puts you as her number one priority. We will always call on Janeen for all our rental and realty needs moving forward. We wish we had found her earlier!”

“It feels so good when someone gets you.”

“We met Janeen almost a year before we were ready to buy. She helped us casually look to get a good feel of the south loop neighborhood. Once we were ready to buy she taught us about so much more than just properties and became a negotiating queen on our behalf. She carefully monitored the market to ensure we weren’t overpaying for anything. We were so up and down and back and forward that we started to feel bad at how long we were taking but Janeen stayed patient and always kept the same level of attentiveness to us. She stayed in contact with the agent of the first property we fell in love with and 3 other offers later she was able to get us the property that stayed in our hearts. It’s always wonderful to work with someone who just gets you.”

“Janeen helped us buy our first home in Chicago in 2017…”

“…and sell that home in 2019 when a career change took my family out of the city. While we looked for a house, she listened to our priorities, combed the neighborhood we were interested in for listed properties, and worked with our schedule for showings. When we were negotiating the price, she did a great job of giving us realistic comps, which was tricky due to the location of the condo. As a seller’s agent, she did a wonderful job of explaining the process to us and highlighting the strengths of our property in the listing. She attended every showing (or asked a colleague to) and was very mindful of our schedules for showings and open houses. She has always been very responsive by text or email, and follows up on concerns with the other party’s agent right away. I highly recommend Janeen!”

“Janeen was absolutely great in helping me buy my first condo!”

“With me only being 26 years old, I lacked much knowledge of what it takes to actually own a property. Janeen was extremely helpful with the adequate amount of resources she put in place to help me make the best choice financially along with tailoring my condo options to my needs. She was always quick to respond and went above and beyond to make sure I was getting great service. I will definitely recommend Janeen to anyone currently buying/selling and who wants someone that has their BEST interest, she will surely make the best out of any situation. Janeen is trustworthy, works above all expectations, professional, and an overall great person!”
