Get to Know Me

Jennifer Burden grew up watching her parents build a thriving real estate business in San Francisco, and some of her earliest memories are of helping them host open houses. A California native and graduate of both Mission High School and San Francisco State University, the City has always been home to Jennifer. Although she moved to New York to get a degree in law and worked as a public defender in Miami, what she calls “the greatest city in the world” called her back in 2000.
 
It’s been Jennifer’s mission to help others succeed in the San Francisco market since 2004. She considers owning real estate to be a worthwhile financial and personal endeavor, and because she’s witnessed the life-changing power of real estate since she was a child, she works with unwavering dedication to create positive experiences for her clients.
 
Strong sales skills and marketing expertise help her sellers get better offers while her background in law helps her buyers successfully navigate the uneven, complex terrain of the San Francisco market. Jennifer’s finely-tuned negotiation and communication skills create ease in every transaction, and when combined with an impeccable work ethic, a service-oriented approach, and an impressive referral network, Jennifer’s clients regularly have results that are above and beyond their expectations. In addition to being a top producing agent, she is also an active member of the Top Agent Network (TAN).
 
When not working, Jennifer enjoys spending time in her beloved neighborhood, Bayview, and volunteers for CASA and her neighborhood’s parks and gardens. Her hobbies include traveling, curling up with a good book, and being with her friends. She is a member of the San Francisco Association of Realtors®, the California Association of Realtors®, and the National Association of Realtors®.

— Patricia & Terry | Bernal Heights Home Sellers

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

They are a fantastic team. I Could not have gone through the sale process without them. They helped with all the work that had to be done prior to listing which was a life saver as I live so far away from the home I was selling. I highly recommend them! They know what they are doing. True pros.

— Sandra G. | Seller

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

My sisters and I inherited a SF duplex with tenants; when it was time to sell, we were fortunate to find Jennifer & Carren of Legacy through our property management company. One apartment was in poor condition, to simplify we expected to sell the duplex “as is”. Legacy encouraged us to update before listing, offering a free loan to complete the work if needed. They were absolutely right, the update cos...

— Cheryl G. | Seller

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Honestly, I can’t say enough good things about Carren and Jennifer. I was very nervous about selling my Ocean Beach condo last October 2022. Both of them worked hard to prep the condo and make it as beautiful (and irresistible) as it was when I bought it. They are professional and easy to work with. Realtors extraordinaire!

— Tamara C. | Seller

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

We recently purchased our first home with the help of Jennifer and Carren. Right from the get go, they were the best combination of indulgence and advocacy. They were patient, thorough, reachable, responsive, and explained things multiple times. Straight shooters as they are, they are extremely nice too. We relied on them for contacts for most everything and all the people / institutions they recommende...

— Manoj R. | Buyer

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

OMG, These professional women are the best! We'd been in contact with them for the right time to sell an investment property with "protected tenants" and held by 4 different family members. It also needed lots of work. They gave us their opinion being respectful that it was our decision to make with regards to selling and doing repairs/updates. We finally decided to list the property and they not only f...

— Diane E. | Seller

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

We can’t say enough good things about these two. First time selling a house for us, and we were shocked at how little we had to do. They made the process fast and virtually effortless on our end. They provided great communication, instincts and experience, and got an awesome price in the end. Cannot recommend highly enough!

— Eric T. | Seller

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Jennifer and Carren are the best team! I was highly impressed at every step of the home selling process which can be quite stressful. We interviewed several agents and what Jennifer and Carren brought to the table as to presentation, research, thought and time put into the comparables (They listed 17 comparables and took the time to go through each one with us as to the details of sale, why it sold for t...

— Norm C. | Seller

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Our friends recommended Carren and Jennifer and what a great recommendation! We were ready to upgrade to a bigger home, but we have two small children and had very little time to look for houses. They were so accommodating and patient, working around our busy schedules. Since they work as a team, one of them was always available to us which was a huge plus. Once they got a feel for what we were looking f...

— Jeremy B | Buyer

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

I highly recommend Judy as a realtor to help with looking for a new home. Judy was very professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. Judy is very reliable and honest, and made sure the house was fit for our needs. I can't say enough good things about Judy, you won't regret choosing her as your realtor.

— Patty T.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Judy Lin from Legacy SF was simply incredible and wonderful to work with! We bought our first home in San Francisco last month, and it was made possible thanks to Judy. We were first time home buyers, and she made every step of the process as easy and smooth as possible. I highly recommend Judy Lin to anyone looking for a home in San Francisco. Judy has insightful knowledge of the market and different S...

— Natalie Y.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

5 stars – If there was a sixth star, I’d use it! I’ve worked with Jennifer, Carren, and Earl to buy two homes in San Francisco. They bring awesome experience and an awesome approach to the entire end-to-end process of getting you into home (and making sure you’re really happy with it). Everything from getting to know neighborhoods, understanding the market, advice on working with banks, making offers, pr...

— Pete N.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Live in Seattle, WA looked at sites for about a month to sell a home that was in the family for over 60 years. Sent email to Jennifer and was back to me in no time, we talked on the phone about the home and area. Had her put the house on the market and closed it under 90 days. She is the best real estate agent that I have worked with in the last 30 years and the Shagley Team too.

— Pete W.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

I highly recommend the Shagley Team! My wife and I had met with a dozen real-estate agents over the past year and did not meet an agent that even tried to understood our needs, until the Shagley Team. Since this was the first time we purchased a home and did not know anything about the process. We needed lots of guidance. And we were scared and skeptical that we could actually purchase a home. Carren Sha...

— Fausto & Jessamay

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

I had a friend that used the Shagley Team to sell his unit. I knew that he would be very in tune with all the aspects for buying or selling a house, so when he recommended the Shagley’s, I knew that they had to be good. They more then met my expectations. Jennifer, Carren and Earl know the area, they know the other Realtors®, and they know the market. They know what to do, to best show a property and the...

— Sally & Byron | Seller

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Jennifer Burden is a top-notch real estate professional. I have worked with Jennifer and her team for many years and she has helped me buy and sell 7 homes. She knows the San Francisco real estate market like no one else – which is critical when you are trying to buy or sell in San Francisco.

— Liza G. | Seller

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Best Realtors® Ever! I really didn’t think we could buy a broom closet in the Bay Area, but with help from Jennifer and Carren, we found the perfect cottage that suits us exactly. They were honest, patient, and listened to our needs. They are kind, humorous, professional, and know the S.F. Realty business inside and out. I can’t recommend them enough.

— Ellen & Albert | Buyer

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

The Shagley team did a wonderful job helping us sell our home. I can’t imagine the selling process going any more smoothly. The Shagley’s have a great team working for them who whipped our house into shape for selling in just a couple short weeks. Every part of the process was completed right on schedule–from listing, to staging, to the close of escrow. Plus, they were extremely fast in responding to all...

— Cary & Norma | Seller

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Jennifer and Carren are the absolute best. Over the course of six months they spent time with my wife and me to find our home in San Francisco. When we found a property and the negotiations got tough Jennifer and Carren fought hard for us and got us the best deal possible in San Francisco. (They got us a deal below asking price). I consider myself lucky to have these two amazing women in my corner.

— Roberto & Zara | Sellers

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

My husband and I recently purchased our first home in Bayview/Silver Terrace, and Jennifer was a joy to work with. She knew a lot about the neighborhood, so she was able to share tips about local spots and recent news in the neighborhood. She’s a former lawyer, so she explained the contact and negotiation process very well. She never rushed us and we never felt pressured. She showed us a ton of propertie...

— Celia & Peter

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Caren and Jennifer are fantastic Realtors®. They were patient with us as we looked for our perfect home in this crazy SF market. Eventually, we found exactly what we were looking for thanks to their expertise. They were professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. They helped us stay calm through a rather tricky closing with a nervous seller and in the end, helped us get a home we love! I would absolu...

— Megan & Ross

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Jennifer and Carren of LegacySFHomes are amazing–and prove that TWO Realtors® are better than ONE! They’re an incredible team that works with absolute coordination to address every home-buying concern. They listen carefully to buyer requirements and clearly do their level best to find the best possible match. While they’re all business when they need to be, they also make the process as pleasant and f...

— Doug T.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

I met Jennifer and Carren through a friend almost 20 years ago on my first San Francisco real estate transaction. I subsequently worked with them on multiple transactions (as buyer and seller) ranging from multiple unit buildings to TIC and condominium units. They were fantastic then, and have only gotten better with age! After decades in San Francisco real estate, they always have their thumb on the pul...

— Jason S.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Jennifer and Carren are an amazing team! Selling a home during the pandemic seemed almost impossible, but they helped us navigate through the sale process successfully! They are very responsive to all our questions, giving thoughtful insight where appropriate, and respected our desires with how we wanted to have the home staged. They made sure that both they and those who viewed our home took the appropr...

— Louise N.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Jennifer and Carren helped us buy our first home and we couldn’t have been happier working with them. Buying a home in a competitive market like the Bay Area can be a stressful process, but Jennifer and Carren made it enjoyable.Not only were they an invaluable resource in assessing the value of every home we toured, teaching us about home features, foundations, permits, and upgrades, they were also a joy...

— Cori W | Buyer

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Judy is a gem of a Realtor®. She helped us to purchase our first home in San Francisco. She is caring, empathetic, attentive, and even more, makes home hunting fun. She goes above and beyond and really goes out to bat for you. I wouldn’t want anyone else helping me to find my new home. We will be using her to find our next home too! By the end of looking for a home, she feels like one of your besties. If...

— Laura K.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Jennifer and Carren were our Realtors® from the beginning of the process in preparing our house for staging, showing it, and walking us through the offer process all the way through helping us make bids to get our new home. We could not be more thrilled and happy with the experience that we had with them. They are amazing, thoughtful, caring, and understanding. I highly recommend this team; whether you’r...

— John S.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Let me start by saying Judy Lin is the best Realtor® in San Francisco. Buying a home or condo can be tricky in San Francisco, but Judy was able to guide me through the up and downs of buying my new condo. Judy listens to your needs and acts accordingly, she’s smart, patient and she knows the business. Working with her was truly delightful and I appreciate how hard she worked for me. If you're looking to ...

— Hugo P.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Experienced, patient, cheerful, and considerate are words that come to mind when thinking of Jennifer and Carren whom we worked with to buy our first home in Bernal Heights this year. They made our search in competitive neighborhoods and during Covid as stress free as possible! Their knowledge of every street corner, technical detail in the disclosures, and years of experience in the area helped find the...

— Greg W.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Judy is a cut above all other Realtors®. She helped us purchase our first home in San Francisco, and we could not have done it without her caring and fun attitude, and exemplary work ethic. If there is ever a need for us to work with a Realtor® in the future, I will be calling Judy, immediately. I can say, for certain, that we have made a new lifelong friend in Judy.

— Tyler S.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Jennifer and Carren helped us through the entire process of buying our first house. They couldn’t have been more patient and helpful as they walked us through each step. We are so grateful for all they taught us and the support they provided. I can’t recommend working with them enough!

— Christina

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

I met Carren and Jennifer in 2007, after interviewing three other agents. I had owned my large Victorian home on Alamo Square for thirty-three years, had restored it lovingly, and was anxious to see it properly marketed. Carren and Jennifer lavished attention on the project and steered me through a 1031 tax exchange. In that process, they facilitated the purchase of another property on the Embarcadero an...

— Justin

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Jennifer and Carren are indeed a phenomenal dynamic duo! They took the time to get to know us and what we wanted as clients aiming to sell our home. They were extremely knowledgeable of the market and advised us on a highly successful strategy to get much more than we expected for our home. They knew how best to make improvements and prepare our house, they managed the process thoroughly, and were deft i...

— Brian

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

My brother and I were looking for a realtor to help us sell our mother's house which she owned since 1958. It was the house I grew up in so it was very important, sentimental, and emotional that we find someone that would represent us and the house professionally with care. If I could give Judy and Jennifer and Carren 10 stars I would. Both my brother nor I reside in San Francisco and we were able to tr...

— Pat S.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

This is the A Team - look no further. We interviewed several agents for the sale of our Noe Valley home, and we couldn't have picked a better team. They made recommendations on how to market the property, suggested contractors and vendors to spruce up the place, helped us set up the appointments, met the vendors at the property, made suggestions on pricing, and all of it was spot on. The place sold befor...

We met Scott half way through our home search. We took 6 months from start to finish, worked with Scott for about 3 months.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Jen is an amazing buyer's agent! My partner and I randomly bumped into Jen at an open house in Bernal. We are first time home buyers (we had previously tried to buy in 2021 and it was too insane back then) and we told her that we were willing to time the market a bit given the market slowdown trends. She was very respectful and was never pushy. We toured around 4-5 houses with her on a weekend and learne...

— Carrina D. | Buyer

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

Jen and Jess are amazing. A few years ago they helped my partner and I buy our first home and we called them back up when we decided it was time to sell. My partner and I were first time sellers and had no idea what to expect. Jen and Jess talked us through everything and had detailed docs to keep us on track. They let us know when things needed to happen and took care of all the hard parts of selling a ...
