by dear friends from their home in Sun Valley, Idaho. After just a 30 Day Trial Membership at

the club as full members, making Ironwood their new desert home.

Barb decided to earn her California Broker’s License and continue her career in the
community of Ironwood she loves , and where she works as an Associate Broker in the Onsite

way of life. She has visited every state in the union, lived in several (attending three high
schools in three different parts of the country) and spent eight years living in Europe. She
taught social studies in Germany at both the Department of Defense schools and GED classes
to American soldiers.
Barbara earned a Masters in Education and Counseling, graduating magna cum laude from
Boston University, and has followed through with her education in real estate to become a

buyers and sellers. She has continued her tradition of personal service to her clients working
in Palm Desert and the Ironwood Country Club community where she lives full time for over ten

Living in the desert since childhood, Jen has a love for the desert and has unique perspective of what makes the Coachella Valley so special. Previously, a Corporate Trainer with Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse for 21 years, she wrote the book on service and hospitality. She exemplifies excellent and honest service.

If you about to list your home or interviewing realtors, Jen Iglehart should be on the top of your list. If you have any hesitation, call or email us. Hire her and you will be glad you did. High energy, integrity, creative, communicator, optimist, thorough, and smart are just a few words that come to mind. Jen spent over two weeks helping us stage our home before it went on the MLS. She was not afraid to tell us what it would take to get top dollar for our home and she helped us every step of the way. She sold our home for more than we thought we could get for it and in only 35 days! Jen employs a transaction coordinator and has a great group of support professionals (painter, electrician, handman, etc.) to help with the details of preparing and getting your home through the escrow process. Our escrow closed on time and without any issues - one of the easiest transactions we have ever experienced. We can't say enough. Thank you Jen! We highly recommend you!

Gene & Marcia Doerr - Comanche - Indian Wells Country Club - mdoe1553@aol.com

We recently sold our winter home on Sunrose Lane in the Ironwood Country Club. Over the years as a corporate president, I have had considerable experience in acquiring and selling real estate, both residential and industrial. My experience with realtors has run the gamut from poor to average to outstanding. In selecting Jen Iglehart as our realtor, I had the positive recommendation from people who's opinion I value. From day one thru the sale and even after the close of escrow, I found Jen to be highly professional, committed to our best interests, and above all, honoring her commitments. She does what she says she will do always with a positive attitude and a smile on her face. I rate her as OUTSTANDING.

Jim & Ginger Walsh - Sunrose Ln - Ironwood Country Club

"We weren’t interested in “canned” presentations or “generic” marketing materials. We wanted “thinking out of the box” and a unique and highly customized marketing approach that would showcase our unique property to a like-minded buyer. Jen formulated and implemented a collaborative and multi-facetted plan calculated to maximize results. Within an extraordinarily short amount of time, a pre-emptive and well-crafted offer was delivered. A short, focused and creative negotiation ensued leading to an accepted offer meeting the needs of both buyer and seller. Jen managed every aspect of the transaction up to and beyond closing…always there…always assisting…always resolving…Jen gives a new definition to the term “full service”. She cares deeply about the quality of her work and her actions reflect that concern each day".

Chris and Tom Becket - Canyon View Estates - Ironwood Country Club

"I needed a realtor to help me find a suitable buyer for my home on Crosby Lane in Ironwood. I was hesitant to list the property as I didn't reside full time in the desert and felt it may be difficult to conduct business via emails and telephone calls. Jen kept me posted every step of the way and made everything a smooth transition. She even went as far as assisting me in cleaning out my kitchen cupboards when I wasn't able to get there soon enough. I would highly recommend Jen to anyone who needs a competent, professional realtor".

Robert (Bob) Baker - Bob Baker Auto - Crosby Lane - Ironwood CC

"Jen is a real Gem. Realize that I spent over a few months searching for a qualified agent to sell a vacation villa turned seasonal rental quickly. It had been offered by another very active broker/property manager that is extremely familiar with the area of Palm Desert/Ironwood and with pictures, a website, realtor magazines and open houses, and little to no interest was expressed. We got feedback of criticism of limited market for contemporary homes, interior wall colors, only a two master suite unit, etc., etc. The question arose of how and when are we ever going to sell this place and the cost of carrying the property was a challenge for an absentee owner. Consequently, a lot of time was spent interviewing and searching for an ambitious, enthusiastic, aggressive and very charismatic agent that has (and had) a lot of deals on the table, indicating great results. It was only through a very high recommendation by a very credible source that Jen was introduced to us. After initially, and thereafter, only having dealt with Jen by phone, it was one of the easier, smoother and fair real estate transactions I have ever experienced. I am a veteran (40 years) builder/developer and licensed real estate broker having negotiated and closed hundreds of deals including projects I built and Jen stands out as one of the most stellar real estate professionals I have ever dealt with. First, she expressed a passion for the property after a visit to the site. She saw positives in the negatives expressed by other agents. She was enthusiastic and very convincing that she would have no trouble moving this property quickly. As part of her service she was going to stage the house more attractively and focus on the positive features including arriving before each showing to open blinds, have the villa fresh and clean like a real model and personally be there to explain all the outstanding features. Needless to say, Jen delivered everything she had promised and we had a solid contract within the first week of being offered. The final price came in with a very close price to not only the offering price but what most other agents felt would be a fair and equitable asking price. The Homeowner’s inspection, lenders appraisal and all repairs could not have gone better, especially under Jen’s dedicated attention and supervision. Jen or her support staff was constantly involved with the escrow company and other parties to keep everyone fully informed on a daily basis or as necessary until the last minute of closing. I cannot recommend a more talented and gifted real estate professional to handle all of your real estate needs whether as a buyer or seller". PS - I found it difficult to put into words the level of appreciation and satisfaction we all experienced though your representation. I am sure you will continue to write many and all deals presented to you once you have made contact with a buyer or seller. For that, all I can do is wish you good luck and good fortune.

John J. Angelini - Trustee - Laguna Hills/Palm Desert - Boxthorn Lane - Ironwood CC

"We have purchased and sold many properties, and found Jen to be one of the most professional and knowledgeable agents we’ve worked with in our 40+ year experience. She responded to phone messages and e-mails almost immediately, regardless of the time of day, or day of the week. Her local knowledge of the Palm Desert area was invaluable in finding our new property, and we will be pleased to recommend Jen and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell in the desert". She provided prompt input to our requests, and using our indicated prerequisites, she and her team quickly found several potential properties. She handled all issues including home inspection, necessary improvements, removal of unwanted furnishings, and the escrow details. This was, without doubt, the smoothest real estate transaction we have done"

James and Marie Mohr - The Lakes Country Club

"We had been thinking about purchasing a home in Palm Desert for a couple of years. On our last trip out to Palm Desert, we contacted Jen and she immediately arranged multiple viewings based on our requirements. She found us the perfect home!! We were able to work with Jen remotely from our home in Florida through the entire process following her recommendations and contacts for all the associated activities. We have enjoyed working with Jen based on her timeliness, professionalism and follow-up!"

Wayne & Kathy Miller - South Palm Desert

"I have worked with many real estate agents, and I found, without question Jen Iglehart to be the most outstanding ever. She was excellent in showing me and deciding on the right, marketable price to list my home. In addition, Jen was helpful in suggesting selected and engaging professional services. She was always available for contact, and was considerate making appointments to show potential buyers, and holding weekend open houses. I appreciate how much she cares about her clients and feel I have found a special friend".

Susanne (Susie) Tatum, Palm Desert

"While searching for an experienced and competent realtor to sell our home located in Palm Desert, Jen Iglehart was recommended by someone who described her as a passionate, aggressive (in a good way) professional with an engaging personality and we found that she was exactly that. Jen is simply a gem! We have purchased and sold several properties and worked with many real estate agents and this last transaction was by far the easiest, enjoyable experience. The house closing process was smooth and successful. Jen went the extra mile, which we are extremely grateful for. She understands how crucial the marketing is to sell a home and uses all kind of ways to get the word out such as social media and not just the Multiple Listing Service. She hires the best professional photographer, which is extremely important in selling a home. She is an excellent communicator who was constantly in contact with us via email, text, or phone. She listened to our needs and we highly recommend her to anyone who needs a top notch realtor.”

Reiner and Mina Groubel - Mariposa Lane - Ironwood CC

I recently had the pleasure of using Jen Iglehart as my Real Estate Agent to sell two pieces of property in Palm Desert. I can give her 5 stars in every way. She was pleasant to work with, punctual regarding all details of the transaction, and professional in every way. Jen also went above and beyond the call of duty, moving some vagrants off the property, and she did this without hesitation and no complaints. She researched any questions I had and got back to me promptly. If you are searching for a capable and enthusiastic agent, look no further.
