A little about Jenny
I was born in September of 1955, in Indiana. I am the youngest of 3 children.
It's been said, we should be in "Ripley's Believe It or Not" because we were all born on September 5th with 3 years between each of us. First my sister, then 3 years later my brother and then 3 years later me.
Upon graduation from high school, I went on to further my education by attending Porter Business College in Indianapolis, where I received a paralegal degree. I worked as a paralegal for 8 years.
In 1976 I took a job as a receptionist at a local radio station in Indiana, which is where I met my husband, Terry. We were married in 1977.
My husband worked in radio for several years, while I worked as a paralegal. We decided we'd like to venture out and start our own business while we were in our mid 20's, and very ambitious. We borrowed enough money to open our own sports store, Athletic Annex. That was in 1980....when interest rates were 18%! If you thought interest rates were high at 8 or 9%, they were great compared to the early 1980's. Can you imagine paying a mortgage with an interest rate of 18%?
My husband and I worked together at the Athletic Annex from 1980 until 2000. At which time I decided to combine my legal experience with my customer care skills and got my license to sell real estate.
I consider myself blessed in life and in the real estate business. Throughout my years as a Realtor, I have worked hard to build a professional image. Trying to treat my clients as I would want to be treated. I have received numerous awards from RE/MAX and have had the pleasure of meeting a number of wonderful people.
I pride myself in being very ethical, understanding and patient, with my family, friends and clients. I will do whatever I can to help (within reason).
If you're considering buying or selling a home in our "gorgeous" Shenandoah Valley, I hope you will call me.
After watching my father die of cancer, I have learned life is just too short not to enjoy every moment. I am taking time to make memories, and to appreciate even the smallest things in life.
Presently I work as a full-time "plus" Real Estate Agent, AND I am the Manager of RE/MAX Advantage, Staunton, Virginia.
Now to tell you a little about my family:
In 1986 my husband and I had our only child, Trent. What a wonderful blessing he is to have in our lives. He graduated from Bridgewater College, with a degree in business administration. He is now working for Wells Fargo in Richmond, Virginia. And, this summer he married Anna Carew.
Needless to say...my life isn't the same now that I have 2 dogs to walk in the mornings. However, it certainly brings a lot of joy to have them greet me at the door when I arrive home each day.
