The Blanchard Team

Jennifer Blanchard

Hello, I am a residential listing/selling and marketing expert specializing in Basking Ridge and the surrounding towns.

My background is in corporate IT and project planning and I bring that expertise to my real estate team. My knack for knowing what makes people tick helps our clients meet their real estate goals.

As well as serving our local clients, we also work with many transferees from companies such as Sanofi-Aventis, Schering Plough, Verizon and J&J.  Our team is relocation certified and often has early knowledge of new relocation listings.  Another reason to have The Blanchard Team looking out for you!

Jennifer was very responsive to all our inquiries, and usually got back to us within the hour. She drove us around, and showed us all of the Basking Ridge and Warren neighborhoods that matched our tastes and needs. Based on the preferences we expressed, she showed us what we considered the perfect house, and helped us negotiate a price well below listing. All in all, very impressive service!

We were so fortunate to have found Carl & Jen Blanchard for our move. As our Realtors, they helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. They were more than patient as we traveled to look at homes over several months to find the right home. The best part about working with Carl & Jen was that they were always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than anything else. We would recommend Team Blanchard to anyone.
