Jarrett Svendsen

managing Broker

Real estate advisor. Easily excited. Bear hug enthusiast.

“Do what’s right. The right way. At the right time. Success will be the journey.”

Growing up, Jarrett had no clue what he wanted to do with his life. He was only sure of his curiosity and that he loved people. This resulted in 3 different degrees and a lot of world travel. When the path became clear he realized it was the life experiences that formed his skill sets. They are now the key to his success.

After being a science educator for many years he fell in love with real estate and pursued them simultaneously for a time. Teaching Earth science (he’s a big nerd) heightened his awareness of our relationship with the planet and responsibility for preservation. When he discovered that a dedicated sustainable development company was blowing up, he knew he wanted to be a part of its growth. BrightLeaf invited Jarrett to unite his passions and lead their new real estate brokerage.

Jarrett’s strategy when working with people is simple. He knows the value of honesty and education and keeps his clients informed so that they make decisions with confidence. With a low-pressure, highly responsive approach he balances the demands of the heart with the head. He helps his clients pursue a home as well as an investment, and he will not take that for granted. Jarrett will guide you from the first handshake to the closing; and beyond as a lifelong resource if you’ll allow him.

When Jarrett is not in the office or running around with clients he is smothering his sons and embarrassing his incredible wife in public. When he used to be cool he would spend as much time as possible with friends, living new experiences and enjoying time in nature.

Surviving the recent Chicago record-breaking cold temperatures, snow, and ice made us realize just how happy we are with our BrightLeaf home. While friends, neighbors, and family worried about frozen pipes and exorbitant utility bills, we were warm and snug in our BrightLeaf home.
