Why did you get into real estate?
After college, Jenna wanted to get away from Minnesota for some time, so she became an English teacher in Chile. There, she learned that she has a gift for teaching and loved it. It is part of the reason why she fell in love with selling residential real estate. Jenna loves to teach people. She loves teaching buyers and sellers the ins and outs of homes, about the home buying and selling process, and about the market as a whole. Buying and selling a home is a really important time in people's lives, and Jenna finds a lot of joy in guiding people in that process, and making them feel supported and excited about it. Jenna is a very business-minded person, so she has a strong passion for the business and investment side of real estate as well.
