Joining The Property Shop team of successful & well-respected Realtors in January 2018, gave Jennifer both challenges & opportunities. Challenged because The Property Shop supports, molds & encourages all their agents to be the best in the business. And the opportunity to work closer to home. After 7 years with well-known Broker, Mark Wyman in commercial real estate in Aspen & the Roaring Fork Valley – then joining an office as an assistant in 2014, Jennifer’s real estate experience is varied & extensive. Most recently as overseer for 17 properties, Jen has enjoyed a spectrum of responsibilities & daily tasks needed to have the houses ready for guests at a moment’s notice. Now settled into the new area of selling residential real estate, Jen’s endless energy and enthusiasm, her careful research and personal service has put her on the radar of many in her sphere as well as in the area communities.
Raised in Meeker, Colorado, Jen’s love for everything outdoors is deeply engrained. She hikes, bikes, runs, skis, camps, & loves to swim at the Glenwood Hot Springs. Along with her husband, Steve, daughters Thea & Sophie, Jen takes full advantage of our beautiful surroundings.
Jen’s husband, Steve is the Director of Golf at the River Valley Ranch in Carbondale. Dad, Jim Cook and cousin, Jess Westley are also PGA professionals. It’s safe to say she’s at home on the golf course, or hiking to the Cross, floating the Roaring Fork, or on the slopes.
Jennifer’s love for the area has led her to be involved with many worthwhile & volunteer activities. Heading up Hospice of the Valley’s major fund-raising event, chairing her daughters’ school fund raising River Valley Ranch golf Tournament, & partnering with her husband Steve’s passion of getting young people involved in golf with “Golf In The Park Presented By Youth Golf Colorado” keeps her on the run.
Jennifer’s real estate experience, her insider knowledge of area countryside, culture, & events give her clients an edge in finding & acquiring their special home. After getting daughters Thea, 9 and Sophie 8, off to school, Jen is back to full time and available to help you with all your real estate needs at The Property Shop. You can expect over the top service as well as intense listening skills, thus earning your trust helping you make one of the largest purchases in your life. Call Jennifer when you need to buy or sell – “let’ s go ‘take a hike’ or play 9 “on the Hill” or hit the slopes or grab a coffee and talk real estate”.
Jennifer was great! She did everything so I didn’t have to. All I had to do was show up at the closing to sign the documents. Thank you Jennifer for making what is normally a stressful situation, stress-less.

We started our home buying journey during the onset of COVID; living in the Front Range was challenging enough for traditional home tours, then compound that with the lockdowns. Jen went above and beyond during this time to video homes we were interested in. Jen’s professionalism exceeded any prior experiences we had in home buying. She’s thorough, detail oriented, knowledgeable, kind and a great advocate for the buyer! The whole team at The Property Shop are truly experts in their field; we highly recommend them for your real estate needs.

Jennifer took amazing photos of our home. I am sure those photos helped a lot. They advertised really well. Our home sold in an amazingly short time. Very nice to work with Jennifer and Kathy.

Jennifer was amazing from start to finish! She was on top of everything and incredibly responsive throughout our home buying process. She listened to all of our needs and was very accommodating. Would highly recommend Jen and The Property Shop to anyone!

My experience was so incredible! Jennifer and her team were so great and helped get things done so quickly!!! I will never forget the experience!

Jennifer VanDyke worked very hard with us for several years so that we could find the perfect house for our family. While doing this, she was able to sell the home we were in and coordinate the many details needed to have this happen simultaneously. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and kind. We recommend Jennifer to everyone that says they need a real estate professional. She brings calmness to stressful situations which is so important. We can’t thank Jennifer and her office enough!

I was a complete pain and we had a three home domino/contingency/tangled web that worked out like a ballet, thanks to Kathy, Wendy and Jennifer. In the end, the carpet in my new home was finished 15 minutes before the movers showed up! I was able to turn over my old home the next morning, as agreed. A special thanks to Kathy Westley for her patience. Throughout the months, Kathy, Jennifer and I shared many laughs. Thanks for the ride, ladies. xoxoxo

Kathy and Jen were on top of it from the moment we started working with them. They continually came up with a refined list of properties to look at and made it fun to go see properties as well. They were responsive to all of our phone calls and we’re always patient when answering them. They also accommodated our crazy closing schedule which was complicated by the birth of an out-of-state grandchild. They are warm and friendly and caring. We loved working with them.
– Jerry Rubin (TPS Website Review – April 2019)
Jennifer VanDyke and the entire Property Shop staff were incredible during my first time home buying experience. They were patient with all of my questions, explained the process thoroughly so I would never be rudely surprised, and treated me more as a friend than a client. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!
– Jessica Perry (, Facebook Review – March 2019)
Kathy and Jennifer are a true joy to work with. Within a very short amount of time it felt like we were working with friends, not simply an agent. They truly wanted to get to know us and understand our life and needs in a home.

I couldn’t have been more pleased with the process of buying and selling a home through Jennifer VanDyke. She was always one step ahead all along the way. More than rewarding working with her. Highly recommend!
– Morgan Marie (Facebook Review – December 2018)
Jennifer VanDyke was absolutely wonderful to work with. We considered selling our home by owner, but so thankful we chose Jennifer to list our property instead. From the beginning stages she was patient in explaining every detail, knowledgeable of the current real estate market and very professional. Throughout the entire process Jennifer kept us informed, was detail oriented and found a qualified buyer, all in a timely manner. We cannot thank Jennifer enough for an exceptionally seamless, speedy and enjoyable experience!!
