A chat with Jenny Sweeney, Realtor

Posted on: April 24, 2017

Where are you working today / where are your appointments?

Sundays seem to be my busiest day. I am working the floor schedule at Elfant Wissahickon this morning, showing an apartment in Germantown at noon and taking a client to see a great modern ranch in Flourtown this afternoon.

Do you have a favorite new local restaurant or business that you are really excited about?

Favorite new restaurant is Jansen, The owner is a good friend and neighbor.

What do you like to do in your free time – besides sell real estate?

I was a Chef for 25 years before I became an agent, I cook a lot, do yoga and hike in the Wissahickon.

What is your favorite style of house?

My problem is I love all types houses! The shabbier the better for me.
