  13. 13. Why use me? About me A Northwest native, I spent my younger years in downtown Bellevue and relocated to the Lower Snoqualmie Valley at the end of grade school. At that time, Duvall was still a tiny farming town. Oh, how time just continues to tick away. Raised in a family with 8 siblings (yes, 8!), I love people and understand the importance of a home and all that it represents. I work very well under pressure and remain focused in the midst of chaos. Great skills that stemmed from my early years! Residing in the Upper Snoqualmie Valley for the past 12 years, I enjoy time with my two sons and the rest of our extended family. I love to entertain and enjoy both yoga and meditation. Camping and hiking are at the top of my list, as is finding any opportunity to connect with others. I began my Real Estate career with Windermere Real Estate and am honored to be a part of their team. Having grown up in a construction family and spending years managing a building inspection company, I see aspects of a home that many people miss. My connection to contractors, inspectors and appraisers is invaluable and my knowledge as to the needs of a particular property is highly regarded. As an active member of my community, I share deep connections with others and a love for this beautiful place in which we live. I'm not a surface agent. I build strong, lasting relationships with my clients and enjoy connecting with them on a more personal level.
  14. 14. What others say about me? Testimonials "Jennifer was everything that you could want and more in a real estate agent. She made the process of selling our home go so smoothly by coordinating bids with several contractors for us, being reliable and dependable, and communicating with us every step of the way. Jennifer is not only a great real estate she is a great person and that shows in the work she does. Our home sold within five days of being on the market and for more than the asking price. Jennifer worked hard to help it close within the 30 day deadline that we needed it to. We appreciated all of her hard work and we know you will too!“ - Christie and Ben W. “Jennifer was fantastic in creating the perfect environment for our home search! She educated, guided, kept the process moving and made us laugh along the way. We are happy to refer all of our family and friends to her!” - Jason & Emily P. “Having Jennifer as part of my selling process has been extremely helpful and calming. The decision to short sell was a difficult one and she's done an exceptional job of keeping the process forward-moving at all times. We've built a strong bond over time, which is exactly what I needed through this life change.” - Tim M. “Jennifer was an amazing Buyer's Agent! What we expected to be a really stressful chapter turned into outings that we actually looked forward to. She listened to our needs, guided us back on track when we were losing our vision and helped us be realistic about our home search. Whether we viewed a promising home or not, our time with her was never wasted. She is a wealth of information and an agent with great personality!” - Hannah & Mark S.
