Jess has always loved Richmond. She remembers traveling through as a little girl on family trips and begging her parents, “Please stop for just a little while,” because she was sure with all those big buildings and bright lights, there must be something really special there. Visits throughout her young adulthood and her move to RVA to pursue a master’s degree at Union-PSCE, confirmed and exceeded her childhood hopes of what Richmond offers.
Jess delights in houses. Her love for houses, especially the unique and charming ones, spurs her imagination of what life is like on the inside and what stories they would tell if they could. She loves to help her selling clients to share the story of their home, and equally so, help her purchasing clients to see the potential stories they could find!
Jess is passionate about people. She is energized through building rapport and cultivating relationships, new and old. Her passion for others is often expressed in social outings she arranges or dinner parties she hosts in her home. Relationships are a cornerstone of her being.
Jess comes to One South Realty after working in education for over two decades. In her teaching career, she has worked with students ranging from kindergarteners to college freshmen, parents, grandparents, administrators, and various community stakeholders.
Jess’ enthusiasm for Richmond, houses, people, and her experience as a teacher, serve her well as she works with clients to give them their best experience buying, selling, or investing in property. She is committed to providing her clients top notch customer service with integrity, educating and guiding them through the process, listening to and meeting their needs, answering their questions, and making the process as stress-free as possible. She aims not only to have a business relationship with her clients, but also to be their trusted friend.
In her free time, Jess explores various neighborhood eateries and dives and lives life as a local whether at home in Richmond or in her travels. She especially enjoys the times when she is exploring with her partner, Ron, with friends, and with family. When she’s not exploring, you can find Jess reading, cooking, enjoying the arts, and chatting with the folks life brings across her path.
