Not at APG.

Our Team

Jennifer Whaley
Jennifer WhaleyBroker

Jennifer is a proud fourth-generation Atlantan. Her family has owned rentals in Atlanta for as far as she can trace, but she was the first to become licensed and turn her passion into a career. Jenn began selling for Keller Williams in 2007 before switching to a property management role at North Atlanta Realty. In 2011 she received her broker’s license and founded Rent Appeal, a full-service property management company. After several years of referring sales to other brokerages, Jennifer decided to open Appeal Property Group to encompass a full-service brokerage that can handle everything from the portfolio planning and acquisition to the exchange or sale of the property. The rental goes to Rent Appeal for management and APG for sales. All under one roof. Jennifer bought her first home when she was 18 and has continued to build her portfolio since then. Real estate isn’t just a career for her, it’s her passion!
