“You don't have to shovel sunshine," that's always my answer to why I moved to Arizona. I spent most of my life in the Midwest, originally from Des Moines, Iowa. I graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in Fine Arts, with painting and photography as my focus and continued my education in Chicago at Harrington Institute of Interior Design. I love to participate in anything outdoors and my move to Arizona suited me well for this passion. I love feeling the sun on my face and would rather be hiking, camping, working in the yard, running or previewing homes, than sitting behind a desk. I love traveling to new places, exploring, being on the beach, swimming, and fishing. I am an amateur photographer and do my best to capture my travels on film. Food is also at the top of my passion list, I love being in the kitchen creating dishes and sharing them with my family.
I believe each of us have a passion we need to discover in the homes that we live in. I am committed to finding my clients a place they envision in their dreams and a home they can live in happily. I have a vast array of professional experiences that aide me in being unique in the real estate profession. I am a certified NCIDQ and licensed ASID interior designer and have worked in the valley for over 11 years designing and constructing many multi-million dollar homes and remodels. I was also the Creative Director for a visionary commercial development project, Waveyard (www.waveyard.com). I am an accomplished marketing professional, graphic designer and an artist and photographer at heart.
I started in the real estate profession for one reason: I love homes. I love all homes. I love the big, beautifully designed and architected properties and I love the little, humble, messy disasters that need a hand to show it's true potential. My “Design Eye for Real Estate" is an unrivaled talent that sets me apart from other real estate agents. My professional and educational background give me the expertise you need to prep and stage your home for sale, successfully market your property, search and discover your dream home and aid you in any renovations you may need. With my help, my clients can see the diamond in the rough. You will have a professional opinion on space and function of the property for your possessions and furniture and get a quick synapsis of costs for remodels if necessary. Also, I can provide a full construction team you may need to finish any part of your new home large or small. Call me to start your search for your new home or fix and flip.
Jennifer has been helping us find a second home in Scottsdale. We haven't found the perfect home yet but she is very diligent at sending me listings. She is very knowledgable in the area and has great ability to suggest remodeling ideas.

I have known Jennifer for about 8 years and have nothing but praise for her. She brings a lot to the table, not only as an agent but she has vast design and building experience. My wife and I have worked with on many levels, she was instrumental in the design and construction of a custom home we built some years ago. She has also represented us as a Real Estate agent and was extremely professional and went above and beyond in all her duties. She was very knowledgeable about the market and kept us in constant contact.

My wife and I had the pleasure of Jennifer helping us find and secure our new home in North Scottsdale. She showed us several unique listings that were perfect for our growing family. One of the main reasons we chose Jennifer is her previous experience in interior design. She helped us see some untapped opportunity in our new home, which ultimately came to fruition with a remodel in the kitchen and living room. It was great to have an agent who could take you into a home and help you envision the little things to take your new place to the next level.
I had a wonderful experience working with Jennifer to both sell my house and buy another one. She helped me determine the items I needed to do to sell my townhouse and when I had completed those jobs the pictures she took really showed my house well. When preparing to list she really did her homework on the listing price and we sold the townhouse in just one weekend. Jennifer had to handle multiple offers and did a great job negotiating to get me the best deal. When it came to buying she spent many weekends house hunting with me. The best thing about Jennifer is her background in interior design. She can really help you see the potential a home has to offer!
Jennifer made some home interior suggestions to make our home more marketable. We valued and respected her advice and made the changes. We our in the process of working with Jennifer to market our home.
