Jennifer Johnson, Realtor®, CNE
Arizona has always been home. Jennifer is a third generation Arizonan. She was raised in Casa Grande, AZ when the population was less than 5,000 and you knew almost everyone. Her father owned the local lumber/hardware store, her uncles were the fire chief, attorney and owned the Western Auto. When Jennifer graduated from high school her father handed her the diploma because he was the President of the school board… not to mention the first mailmen Casa Grande ever had with his badge in the historical society. It was sort of like growing up in Mayberry. She has the best childhood memories in coming from a large family and growing up with 24 cousins let alone being the youngest and only girl with three older brothers.
Jennifer graduated from high school in Casa Grande and went on to The University of Arizona. Moving to the "big city" from a small town was quite the adjustment. She soon found her new family when she joined the Pi Beta Phi sorority. Pursing a business degree in Marketing and Management she graduated in 1985. Upon her graduation she landed her first job working for Valley National Bank and embarking her career in the financial world. She started in sales working in their credit processing division for 7 years before she found a new interest in being a mortgage originator. She worked in Mortgage originating and management for 11 years. Seeing the highs and lows of the market and looking for a change she became a Realtor® in 2007.
Jennifer has valuable experience for her buyers due to her experience from working on both sides of the purchase transaction. From getting prequalified, becoming fully approved, funding the loan to writing the offer/contract, negotiating the fair price along with the inspections, repairs for the right home. All along the way while building a relationship with her clients thru honesty, integrity, educating and excellent communication. These are Jennifer's five key pillars she prides on to having successful transactions. She is passionate about her job and is fierce about her reputation as being a first class Realtor®.
Jennifer met her husband J.C. while attending the University of Arizona. They married in 1990 and just recently celebrated their 26th anniversary. Jennifer and her husband have three children, Shannon (attending the University of Arizona) and twins, Clark and Nicole (attending Hamilton High School). It's almost like raising two families with Shannon five years older than Clark and Nicole. Jennifer and her husband have watched and supported their children in their multiple sports activities and have travelled to 30 states. They soon will be entering the empty nester stage with a whole new bucket list.
With Jennifer's financial background from sales, mortgage originating and being a Realtor who has earned her Certified Negotiation Expert designation (fewer than 1% of all agents have earned this designation), her clients will have the confidence of getting the right home at the best price. When the transaction has closed the best memories are handing over the keys to clients for new memories and dreams to come true.
