Born in Buies Creek, NC, I moved to Greenville to attend East Carolina University. During college I worked for one of NC’s top real estate teams as a Team Marketing Assistant and Listing Coordinator. After graduating with a degree in English and a minor in Communications in 2003, I decided to take my passion for Real Estate one step further and chose to start my own real estate company, Jennifer Jenkins Realty. Dan joined the company in 2006 and after 10 years of successfully owning and operating our own firm, we joined the United Real Estate franchise and opened URE East Carolina in 2014. Dan and I have been married since 2004, we have a daughter Scarlett, and a son Joshua. We are active members of the Oakmont Baptist Church and enjoy supporting local sports teams. I am confident that my experience in real estate and marketing will help me to best serve you! I am here only to educate you on the process, YOU make all the decisions and decide what is most important.
A daughter of Colombia, South America, I found beauty, creativity and imagination during my early days helping my father around his construction sites. After graduating as a Business Administrator, I worked as an insurance broker for DeLima March; the largest insurance broker in South America. There, I developed a comprehensive approach to customer service by honing my ability to “hear” my customer’s needs; not just their words. During the 3.5 years that followed, I worked as the International Sales Representative for a Colombian/US tool manufacturing company, traveling to Central and South America as well as the reaches of the Caribbean, and coming in contact with people from many diverse cultures and all walks of life. This intensified my passion for languages which I retain to this day (English, Spanish and some Italian) and a greater appreciation for the importance of that place called “HOME”.
In 2003, I moved to Raleigh, NC to work in sales for one of the premier Spanish speaking television stations in the country (Univision). While I was very successful in that industry, it came second best to finding Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and meeting my best friend and beloved husband, a U.S. Marine. Today, I am a proud US Citizen, a resident of New Bern, North Carolina, a very proud military spouse and mother of three amazing children. Although my travels in marriage and industry have taken me to several countries in the world, (Colombia, Venezuela, Panama, Costa Rica, Dominicana, Mexico, Puerto Rico, California, South Carolina, Japan, Virginia and others) my heart never ventured far from my home of North Carolina. Have my travels given me experience and knowledge on relocating and starting over? You bet! All of these are at the disposal of my clients as their Real Estate Agent. I can and will help you find or sell your home in Eastern North Carolina. If you are moving here, my hope is that you will find yourself falling in love with the beauty of this place as your new home; just as we have.
I believe that your home is your sanctuary and should be treated as such. Whether you're buying your first home or seeking that dream retirement residence, the experience should be seamless. I am no stranger to moving, I am the wife of a Navy veteran and we have moved quite a bit with the kids. Every place we have lived we made memories so I understand that a home is more than a place to live.
As a proud member of the United Real Estate - Coastal Rivers family, I carry the value of hard work, integrity and outstanding client service into everything I do.
I was born and raised in France. I moved to the United States in December 2002 with my family. I learned to speak the language with the help of my children. In the following 9 years, I moved 3 times to 3 different states. I have learned how difficult it could be to change city or state with a family. Every time I had to overcome the stress of the move and help my children get settled in their new home. Finding a new home was also a big challenge but very exciting at the same time.
I have worked as a massage therapist and it helps me to really listen to my client’s needs. Finding out the source of their trouble and making a plan to resolve it was very rewarding.
