Jennifer is a lifelong resident of Northern Virginia, growing up in McLean and graduating from James Madison University. She has 20 years of real estate experience, extensive experience in new construction and has worked tirelessly to serve her clients with personal and professional integrity, attention to detail and unsurpassed dedication, earning numerous awards and designations over the years. Since she obtained her license in 1999, at the suggestion of her father, C.R. “Bud” Harper—a real estate veteran in the DC Metro area for 45+ years—she has gained the trust of her clients by valuing their individual interests and keeping the lines of communication open. Jennifer has developed a deep appreciation for building true relationships, which is now evident in the daily operations of her real estate business with a superb team surrounding her.
In addition to her fine-tuned sense of the market as a whole, Jennifer has represented many builders both in land acquisition and sales. She has had personal experience with the process of new construction, as well as a keen eye for design, detail, and aesthetics, having custom-built or extensively renovated three of her own family’s homes.
Jennifer began her career with the National Student Leadership Forum, where she brought together members of both Houses of Congress, industry leaders, international government officials and professional athletes, facilitating discussions on leadership and action at state, regional and national events. She continues to volunteer with the forum and also with orphans and vulnerable children, serving on the board of organizations such as Hope for Grieving Families.
Her passion for family has led her and her husband Matt to adopt four young children, and, as a result, she is very involved in many school activities and committees that keep her abreast and knowledgeable of community developments in the local private and public school systems.
