Esther’s passion is finding her clients/customers the perfect fit in a home, whether it is a forever house or a starter home with room to grow. Establishing the right dialogue and knowing the needs of each individual are of utmost importance to her. No property is too big or too small. Please do not hesitate to contact Esther with any questions. She can list your current house, or together you can find a new one.
I co-founded the Home & Haven Team with the mission to personalize the real estate experience - to help clients feel comfortable, informed and excited about the process of buying and selling. With a background in new construction sales and selections, I bring a keen eye for detail and design and am passionate about helping everyone find their place in the world. As a Fishtown resident and native of Havertown, I pride myself on helping clients from city to burbs and beyond. Aside from my love for real estate, I love to spend my time exploring new restaurants and bars, enjoying quality time with friends, family and my rescue pup Leo and escaping to the shore for a good sunset!

Born and raised in northeast Germany, she moved to Philadelphia in 2006 where she served as the executive assistant to the President of the German-American Chamber of Commerce. As a bilingual speaker, she was also able to assist the Honorary Consul of Germany in Philadelphia, helping people with their passports and translation-related inquiries.
When she and her husband decided to start a family, they ventured out into the suburbs and fell in love with Ardmore, where they are raising their twin daughters. Outside of the Compass realm, Jana loves to travel, going to the movies with her husband and taking long walks with her rescue dog Ham while listening to her favorite podcast.
"Esther and Jessa were unbelievably helpful, knowledgeable, reassuring, and communicative. I’ve already started recommending them to people."
"Love Esther! She listened to what we wanted and what was important to us as a family. She was incredibly responsive to my questions at all times of the day. Showed us homes on our schedule! Although we've been through this process before, she held our hands every step of the way!! Highly, highly recommend her!"
"From the beginning of our time together I have been tremendously impressed with the depth of knowledge, extreme competence, rapid responses, generous willingness to handhold and go above and beyond to help, and the delightful personalities I've had the privilege to experience by working with Esther and Jessa. I am so so grateful to have been able to work with the best!"
"Esther and Jessa are the best! They were so helpful with my home buying process. They were both so considerate, patient and hands on. I am so lucky to have had them as my agents. They are truly the best!"
"There's no better feeling when your real estate agent feels like a friend. She is so personable and friendly that it made the scary process of being a first time home buyer that much easier. We were extremely comfortable with every move we made and Esther was an amazing help through it all. She made sure that every detail was thoroughly explained so that we understood every step and circumstance that we faced. After this experience I can only give her a glowing review and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of real estate assistance."
"My recent experience with first time home buying has been awesome! Particularly with real estate agent Esther Cohen Eskin she moved mountains to meet all deadlines during this Covid-19 Pandemic. I picked out a place and she made it happen! She got the job done. As a first time “insecure” home buyer, I believe I was blessed to have Esther Cohen Eskin as my agent. She answered all of my questions, returned my calls, and seemed very sincere. I am still stunned at how she got me into my new home by May 1st, especially, during this time of no personal contact. Wow!"
"Jessa and Esther were amazingly helpful. They assisted us with all there is to know with first home buying. Whenever there was a question they were super quick with the replies. They even helped us find out information about the county. Both went above and beyond to make sure the property met our expectations and that the process was smooth. To top it off they even continued to check up on us after closing! Does it get any better than that? Best realtors you will find!"
"Esther is remarkable in her ability to calm the choppy waters with a smile, plus her experience and expertise. She listened, a rare gift in today's world, and made our purchase of our dream house a reality. Her suggestions were spot on, and we realized we could completely trust in her guidance. I cannot more highly recommend her."
"Esther and Jessa were great through the whole process. They were very responsive and very understanding about what we wanted. They showed us like 20 houses and found the perfect one for me and my daughter."
"When we approached Esther about selling our home, we were unsure about whether we were ready and what we wanted to do next. With Esther's impeccable reading and sense of timing of the market, she readied, marketed and sold our home within days at a price point that surpassed our expectations. Furthermore, she worked tirelessly to assist us in finding our next home and ensured both our sale and purchase were accomplished safely and speedily during the Corona outbreak. We highly recommend working with Esther."
"Esther is the best! You would be lucky to have her as your agent. She knows a ton about Philly area homes, is super friendly, goes above and beyond in showing homes, negotiating, explaining, guiding, and follow through. Very supportive and a pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend her highly enough - and now I’m in an awesome home!"
"Esther was phenomenal throughout our entire home buying experience. Purchasing a home in the middle of the COVID pandemic provided obstacles that Esther easily navigated, keeping us informed throughout. We felt as if we were her only clients throughout the process, her attention to detail and understanding of us as a family was that apparent. Esther has our highest recommendation for anyone looking for a real estate agent in the greater Philadelphia area!"
