As a born entrepreneur Jess is savvy and driven. From a young age Jess has worked hard to exceed expectations; whether it be as School Captain and Valedictorian of her high school, receiving the Academic Gold Medal for finishing at the top of her class in university or leading her varsity rugby team to their first ever National Championship title. The discipline learned from the structured worlds of sport and academia translated into the skills and temperament needed to succeed in the business of homes and the built environment.
Having always had a keen eye for aesthetics and an appreciation for the built world, Jess decided to begin pursuing her Red Seal carpentry certification. During this time she was pursued by, and began working for, a large commercial construction company to manage, hire and train tradespeople for projects across the Maritimes. On evenings and weekends she devoted her spare time to renovating her duplex in Halifax’s North End. Having always had a passion for design and homes, Jess started a furniture company called Trunk Studio which garnered international recognition and accolades (Globe & Mail, Qatar Airlines’ Oryx Magazine, The Toronto Star, Azure Magazine, NOW Magazine).
Real Estate has proven to be the ultimate combination for Jess. She gets to deal with people, negotiate contracts, speak to the pros and cons of homes and drive herself to pursue the very best business & marketing practices. Known for her hardworking, yet laid back and approachable style, she forms client relationships where her engagement and love of homes translates into transactions that are right for you. Jess has been practicing in real estate since 2013 and can thank her referral network of happy clients for the healthy year-over-year growth of her business. In 2020, Jess oversaw 35 successful transactions. Buying or selling a home is often the largest monetary and lifestyle investment her clients will ever make and Jess is adamant that the process deserves the utmost respect.
In her spare time Jess can be found walking her dogs Red, Bear & Aggie, spending time with friends, snowboarding or planning her next travel adventure.
