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 went above and beyond throughout the entire process of buying our dream home!! She was easy to work with, professional, down-to-earth, understanding of our needs/wants, knowledgeable about the area and the market – her guidance was appreciated every step of the way! Without her, we wouldn’t be able to make such a significant purchase from the other side of the world! Not only did we feel like we gained a friend, but we also were very pleased with the information that she provided to us to make the right decision! 10/10 would recommend Jennifer to anyone who is looking to buy/sell! Thank you!

Kathy has helped me buy and sell several houses in the valley! She and Jennifer do an amazing job! They help with everything from advising how to get a house ready to sell to pricing it for a quick sell. They make the stress of moving so much more manageable! Thank you both!

Jennifer and The Property Shop team worked tirelessly to not only find us our dream house but complete the transaction during especially difficult times. Truly an advocate for us with a detail oriented approach. We will absolutely work with The Property Shop in the future.

I’ve bought or rented in NYC, Austin, Pittsburgh and I recently purchased my dream home in Glenwood Springs CO. Jen from The Property Shop was the best broker I’ve ever worked with. After coming highly recommended by a friend, she exceeded my expectations. The two things that made Jen incredible in my transaction was her knowledge of the market and real estate process and her genuine interest in making her clients happy. I believe she had my best interest in mind throughout the whole process. Jen helped navigate a very tricky personal situation and surrounded herself with a team of people who helped us progress a deal that had at least 10 reasons it shouldn’t have happened. But, I’m now in my dream home and grateful for Jen and her team at The Property Shop. I’d recommend Jen in a heart beat and I’d definitely work with her again!

Home buying can be stressful and full of excitement. Jennifer VanDyke took the worries and stress away from us from start to finish. She is responsive and an absolute pleasure to work with. I will recommend Jennifer to any one moving to the Roaring Fork and surrounding areas. Thank you!

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.
– Robert Hubbell (TPW Website Review – September 2020)
Jennifer followed through with everything! Great to work with! Helped us tremendously and very professional!
– Patrick Brey (TPS Website Review – September 2020)
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!
– Jill Morris (TPS Website Review – June 2020)
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!!
