My Real Estate Beginnings:
My first experience with real estate was during the real estate crash in 2010 when my husband and I were looking to buy a home. It was a turbulent time in real estate and quite an experience as a consumer. With that experience and knowledge on my belt, I met my mentor in 2014 who introduced me to the other side of real estate, and I have never looked back. I took my experiences as a consumer and the experiences I face daily through transactions and use them to help educate and guide my clients through their hurdles. One thing I have learned through my time as a Realtor is that every transaction is different, and presents its own opportunities and hurdles. The best way to combat these hurdles is to have an agent on your side who knows how to solve problems. I can promise you, that is what I am best at!
I am a Realtor® who values and prioritizes each client to ensure their real estate goals are met and expectations exceeded in the process. Born and raised in the East Bay, I spent most of my free time in Santa Cruz lured by the outdoor lifestyle, beauty of the coastline, serenity of the mountains and wonderful community. I moved to Santa Cruz in 1981 and earned a degree in Economics and Business from the University of California, Santa Cruz. I have accumulated diverse experience in sales, management, production and manufacturing, account management, client services and operations, as well as marketing. Additionally, I am proud to have co-owned a local business here in Santa Cruz for over 20 years. As a top sales producer I am a skilled negotiator, a strategic thinker, adept in closing contracts, and am passionate and devoted to my clients. I am deeply committed to the process of connecting and unveiling client needs efficiently through attuned listening and thoughtful questions. I am a tenacious, dedicated, proactive professional who promises to leave no stone unturned, a resourceful problem solver who will meet any challenge with drive and determination. Whether you are selling, buying, or looking for an investment property, I utilize a technology-based, turnkey solution to provide you a seamless navigation for all your real estate goals. I am also a certified Yoga (E-YRT 200, soon to be certified 500 YRT) and Pilates Instructor and enjoy providing my community with an opportunity to manifest a healthier approach to living by being rooted in positive thought, accountability, and action. I enjoy running on the beach, hiking, sailing, snowboarding, cooking, wine tasting, travelling, being a mom to my twins, spending time with friends and family, lending ideas to interior design, and design/build concepts and hanging out with my Yorkshire Terrier.
I am Jen, and will be helping you every step of the way in your home sale. Rest assured that as a team we are always here to ensure your needs are being met, expectations exceeded and our plan is clear. When I am not assisting Kaelin, I am out looking for new adventures with my partner, Joseph. I am a free-spirited person who enjoys working in real estate yet crazy about pursuing my dreams of traveling the world and continuing my passion for documenting these experiences. I have high hopes as well on being a licensed Realtor® someday, and grateful to learn from the best. I am enjoying being a part of our every client's success in selling or finding their new home.
