JENNIFER AMES was schooled in the art of communication. That’s one attribute that sets her apart as the successful President of Ames Group Chicago and as a License Partner with Engel & Völkers Chicago. “I am highly professional, a strong advocate for my clients, and a straight shooter,” she says. “I tell the truth, not necessarily what I think people want to hear. I am collaborative but I am also tenacious. Whatever the task at hand, I get it done.” She earned her BA from Yale University in English, she says, “which really means the art of effective communication!” But that’s only one essential ingredient to being a nationally recognized luxury real estate broker and sought-after mentor. “I always treat people the same, regardless of who they are or where they come from,” she adds. “Years ago, I met a cute couple at an open house and proceeded to help them find a home. It was only later that I realized that the husband was the captain of one of Chicago’s major sports teams, and frankly it did not matter!” What’s more, Ames epitomizes the adage, “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” Her mother, Laura Fairbank Sudler, was a top residential broker for more than 30 years. “For both of us, serving our clients and our communities is not a dalliance, it’s a way of life. Mom taught me the importance of leaving the world a better place than you found it,” says Ames.
