As a born entrepreneur Jess is savvy and driven. From a young age Jess has worked hard to exceed expectations; whether it be as School Captain and Valedictorian of her high school, receiving the Academic Gold Medal for finishing at the top of her class in university or leading her varsity rugby team to their first ever National Championship title. The discipline learned from the structured worlds of sport and academia translated into the skills and temperament needed to succeed in the business of homes and the built environment.

Having always had a keen eye for aesthetics and an appreciation for the built world, Jess decided to begin pursuing her Red Seal carpentry certification. During this time she was pursued by, and began working for, a large commercial construction company to manage, hire and train tradespeople for large scale projects. On evenings and weekends she devoted her spare time to renovating her first income property. Having always had a passion for design and homes, Jess started a furniture company called Trunk Studio which garnered international recognition and accolades (Globe & Mail, Qatar Airlines’ Oryx Magazine, The Toronto Star, Azure Magazine, Design Lines).

Real Estate has proven to be the ultimate combination for Jess. She gets to deal with people, negotiate contracts, speak to the pros and cons of homes and drive herself to pursue the very best business & marketing practices. Known for her hardworking, yet laid back and approachable style, she forms client relationships where her engagement and love of homes translates into transactions that are right for her clients. Buying or selling a home is often the largest monetary and lifestyle investment her clients will ever make and Jess is adamant that the process deserves the utmost respect.

Jess has been practicing in real estate since 2013 and can thank her referral network of happy clients for the healthy year-over-year growth of her business. Jess is a repeat Engel & Volkers Diamond award winner. An award designation typically presented to less than 250 advisors in the Engel & Volkers North American network. She helped clients with thirty-five transactions in 2020 and forty-four in 2021. She is also a certified member of the internationally recognized Institute for Luxury Home Marketing Specialists. This designation assures buyers and sellers in high end marketplaces that the agents who have earned it have the knowledge, experience, competence, and confidence they require. She is proud to be part of the friendly and competent group at Engel & Volkers Vancouver.

In her spare time Jess can be found walking her dogs, spending time with friends, snowboarding, mountain biking or planning her next travel adventure.

Working with Jess was a great experience for me! She came highly recommended by a friend, and she didn't disappoint. This was my second time purchasing a condo in Vancouver, and she really helped me with all of the considerations that go into moving into a different neighbourhood. Jess really made the whole process really smooth, and gave great advice on how to structure the offer in a multi-bid situation. Can't go wrong working with Jess, thanks again!

This is what home buying should be: exciting, fun, ethical and secure. When I decided to purchase a second property in Vancouver, I was intimidated by the competitive market, the unstable economy and unsure of what area would best suit me. Enter Jess, who helped me target my search to architecture styles and neighbourhoods that best fit my lifestyle, budget and investment needs. She was extremely patient and took the time to get to know me as both a person and a client. This gave me confidence in my decision making and earned my trust. When it came time to make offers, she negotiated strongly on my behalf and was communicative with agents and myself. She’s well connected within Vancouver, and had a lawyer and mortgage broker at the ready to help me see the transaction through to fruition. Jess supported me more than any Realtor ever has. She saved me hundreds of dollars by reviewing condo docs on my behalf and summarizing any risks, calling strata management companies and even knocking on neighbours’ doors (who knew there were so many ways to install an in-suite laundry unit!). In short, she was extremely principled and prioritized my well-being over a quick sale.

I'm a 1st time buyer and an architect with 4 bikes, 7 pairs of skis, and a room full of climbing gear. Finding a nice place in a vibrant hip neighborhood for a cost I could afford was no easy task. Jess was super patient, and listened to my very unique needs, and guided me through the process of buying in the very difficult Vancouver market. She's responsive, organized, effective and has a network of professionals you need to purchase a home including, Home Inspectors, Mortgage Agents, Lawyers, Movers and everything you need. When you work with Jess you get the total package.

Jess helped me buy my first home! It was a long journey as we had been searching for about 8 months until we found the perfect place. We navigated a tough market with very little inventory during the pandemic. Jess was very attentive and professional through it all. I had to travel out of country 2 days after our offer was accepted and Jess made sure everything went smoothly while I was away. She always made me feel cared for and really goes above and beyond for her clients. I can't recommend Jess highly enough!

Jess was incredible on my journey to buy a condo. From the start I told her I had no one to join me in the search and she was 100% there with me, along on open houses, incredibly responsive to questions, helping point me to resources and making the process easy and digestible for a first time home buyer. She went above and beyond to get me in to the showroom for a pre build, and thanks to her timing and effort, I was able to snag a dream condo. She listened to every need and spec I had for my search, and made it so obvious why working with a realtor, especially one as awesome as Jess, is the only way to go!

I would definitely recommend working with Jess as an agent! I am a first time buyer and I am really happy with the outcome. She made the process a lot easier and less stressful. She gave great advice and was quick to answer all of my questions/concerns. She is able to get things done very quickly which is needed in the competitive Vancouver market.

My husband and I just bought a house and I wanted to gush about our realtor Jess Tasker She's very down to earth and honest. She gave solid advice on bidding, and called out potential issues with houses during viewings. She also referred us to a mortgage broker, lawyer, and inspectors. They were all great to deal with. It's an insane time to buy a home, but she made it way less stressful.

Jess is a fantastic realtor and I can't recommend her enough as a first-time home buyer. I thought the process would be overwhelming and confusing- but Jess took care of everything. My partner and I often looked at each other, wondering 'is it always this fun and easy?' We really appreciated her background knowledge of construction and home builds, and always knew she'd raise any red flags on properties we looked at. Also, Jess is extremely responsive and a really cool human. She certainly takes good care of her clients. Jess helped us find our home after just a couple weeks of looking, but I wish the process was longer so we could have explored more with her!

My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Jess for several years and can’t think of a more kind and capable person to entrust such important life decisions as the purchase and sale of real estate. Jess guided us with calmness through the stress of our first home purchase in 2016, even helping us close the deal while we were 8000km away on our honeymoon! She then helped us sell the same home five years later at almost double the original price with multiple offers. In between, she has guided us through the purchase of two more rental properties, always organized, attentive and up for a laugh along the way. We have referred her to numerous friends and family members because Jess really is the best of the best!

Great working with Jess. My husband and I met her through our financial advisor at TD bank once we informed him of our interest to purchase our first home/investment property. Jess worked with throughout the entire process and ensured that we got just what we needed. Her professionalism and negotiation skills are next to none. We appreciate her honesty and patience as this process was a very long process. We would not hesitate to recommend Jess as she gets the work done.

We recently worked with Jess, on the recommendation of a friend, to sell our house just outside Halifax and felt a comfort level with her from the start. Jess is very knowledgeable about the market and has a very down-to-earth style. She provided guidance on repairs and painting that would show our house at its best. She went above and beyond to help us stage our house and remove items to our storage pod on the day we were booked for photos. I would highly recommend Jess to anyone considering selling their home.

My partner and I were referred to Jess through a friend who had purchased with her previously and it was the best move we could have made in our Halifax home search. We were first time homebuyers, nervous and full of misinformation. Jess guided us through the process gently and answered close to 1000 questions before we closed. Jess was never too busy to schedule a viewing or answer a text (or 50), and was flexible with us as when what we wanted changed. She kept us on track with our budget and was so knowledgeable about the houses and housing market. Once we were looking at the one it felt right, we knew we were looking at every angle and we had an expert negotiator on our side . We're so grateful for Jess, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone in the market

My wife and I worked with Jess when buying our house, and couldn't recommend her more highly. When we first met Jess to kick things off, she ensured that we fully understood the full house buying process so that there were no surprises down the line. She negotiated effectively on our behalf. We were set a short timescale to meet conditions in a busy market. Jess ensured that the process went smoothly by quickly arranging an inspection and then subsequent, more in depth, investigations by trades. Overall Jess made what is typically a stressful experience plain sailing. Work with Jess if you want an experienced realtor, who is a great listener, and doesn't put any pressure on you, but does give you her recommendations based on her understanding of your needs and wants.

We used Jess as our realtor for our first home purchase and she was great. There are so many things that we never would have thought about when looking at houses but she was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the home and potential issues that could arise. She's very honest and wants to find the right house for you, it was a pleasure dealing with her and would definitely recommended her!

Buying my first Canadian house couldn't be so much enjoyable without Jess. She is well-organized and professional realtor. She knows her job, gets client's expectations and plans further actions. It didn't take me too long to find my desired house because she knew what I was looking for. Since it was my first purchase I didn't know a lot how real estate works here in Canada. She was generous enough to share all the needful information and relevant contacts to handle my home inspection and legal support. It was great working with her. I am looking forward to our collaboration in the near future, this time for both selling and buying. I do recommend Jess to everyone I know.

After my husband passed away Jess was recommended to me by my son to help me sell my house. She gave me sound advice and walked me through every step of the process. I followed everything the told me to do and ended up selling my house for $50000 over asking price. She even help calm me down when my nerves got the better of me. She was professional, kind and understanding of my situation and what I could do and couldn’t. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
