Agent Spotlight: Jennifer Hunter, Prudential Gary Greene, Realtors
- Written by
How long have you been a Realtor? I became a Realtor four years ago and loved it immediately. My passion for my clients and my love of real estate resulted in winning “Rookie of the Year” at Prudential Gary Greene in 2006-2007. In 2009, I was awarded Honor Society through Prudential Nationwide (top 11 percent). In 2010, I completed Prudential Gary Greene’s Leadership Development Academy. Also, in 2010, I obtained my ABR Designation (Accredited Buyer Representative) and New-Home Sale Specialist certification. I am also a Certified Relocation Specialist, through Prudential, and love it! What made you become a Realtor? I was a social worker for more than 10 years after college and always enjoyed helping people. When my son, Aidan, was born, I took a few years off to be at home with him. I enjoyed watching TV shows like “House Hunters” and “Flip This House” and even purchased some rental properties with my husband. I also always enjoyed browsing listings on the Internet and viewing homes. So, the opportunity to help people and my love of real estate naturally drove me to become a Realtor when my son started school. What is the most expensive home you’ve ever sold? I’ve sold two houses in the $700,000 range. They were beautiful homes, but we have a lot of beautiful homes in the area at a wide variety of price ranges. It is an honor to show and sell all homes in the area. What brought you to the Humble/Kingwood/Atascocita area? We were living in Pearland and my husband had a sales territory that included Kingwood/Humble/Atascocita. He told me how beautiful it was here and how friendly all the people are. The first time he brought me here, I loved it and knew I wanted to live here. Moving to Kingwood was the best thing that could have happened to us. My son was diagnosed with Autism soon after the move and Atascocita has a great nonprofit school for kids with autism called “Including Kids” (www.includingkids.org) that he now attends. We’ve received so much support from the community and have the best friends and neighbors anyone could ask for. What do you think about the market at this time and what advice do you have for someone considering buying or selling a home? Overall, Texas real estate has been fairly resilient, especially when you look at states that had wild appreciation and subsequent depreciation like California and New York. Don’t let the market keep you from buying or selling your home. People are always buying and people are always selling. If you are thinking about selling your home, make sure it is move-in ready, priced right and be patient. If you are thinking about buying, the combination of low interest rates and available inventory makes for a great opportunity to be in the market for a home.
