Jessica is a full-time professional real estate Principal Broker associated with Town & Country Realty in Albany, Oregon. She is focusing her real estate services in the Mid-Willamette Valley as she grew up and went to school in Albany and Corvallis.
After 10 years of working as a full-time agent in Marin County, California where she was a consistent multi-million dollar producer representing both buyers and sellers in Marin and Sonoma Counties, Jessica moved back to Oregon in 2005.
Since returning to Oregon and joining Town & Country Realty in 2005, Jessica has represented a wide range of clients. Familiar with the fast pace of California real estate, increasing property appreciation and multiple-offer situations along with teaching classes educating first time home buyers and first time home sellers, she has a unique background from which to work for her clients here in Oregon. Whether it’s representing the City of Albany, the Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs, Linn Benton Community College or first-time home-owners or buyers, she loves her job and couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
“I believe that the more information my clients have, the better the decision they can make,” she says about the qualities she brings to her profession. “They need to understand the process, they need to know their options, and they need to be kept updated. If they don’t know what is going on, they aren’t having fun and I haven’t done my job.”
Jessica believes it’s important to be involved in and contribute to her community. She is a member of the Greater Albany Rotary Club where she is a member of the Crab Fest Committee and Chair of the Craft Brew Smackdown which benefits Rotary and the Albany Historic Carousel & Museum. She is past-President of SafeHaven Humane Society and a member of their Finance and Capital Campaign Committees. She is a board member of the Albany Downtown Association and Chair of Mixology Madness, a local cocktail contest. Her latest project was Library Uncorked, a fundraiser for the Friends of the Albany Public Library.
Jessica is also a member of the Lebanon Area Chamber of Commerce and a volunteer with the Linn County Sheriff’s Office. Her awards since returning to Oregon include the Linn County Sheriff’s Office “Volunteer of the Year” – 2007, Oregon Emergency Management’s “Partner of the Year” – 2008, Albany Area Chamber of Commerce “Jim Linhart Citizen of the Year” – 2012, “Five Star Award for Real Estate Professionals” – 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016; and Oregon Top Agent Magazine 2015.
One of Jessica’s hobbies is gardening with a focus on native plants that provide food and shelter for wild birds. She has traveled extensively, including Europe, Mexico, China and Kathmandu. She is an exotic bird rescuer and currently lives in downtown Albany with her flock of 22.
