I am a Southern California girl born and raised! My education took me east to Ohio, where I graduated with a degree in psychology from Youngstown State University. While pursuing my degree I discovered my passion for helping people. This passion has driven me throughout my careers, which started in mortgage lending. I spent 10 years in the lending industry before I decided to shift to real estate.
My journey in real estate started in January of 2017, when I started with United Real Estate East Carolina. I worked on the award winning Dan Jenkins Team, and helped grow it to the top team in sales volume in all of United Real Estate. From this experience I was given knowledge and tools necessary to start my own team. I started Carolina Proud Realty LLC, and Carolina Proud Property Management Company LLC with my husband John Hromyak.
Real Estate is a passion of mine, but my true joy is my family. I am a proud mother of a 9-year-old son. On the weekends you can find me on a beach with a book, watching John toss the football with our son. I love spending as much time outdoors as possible, which is one of the reasons I love the beautiful state of North Carolina. I have lived all over the country, but eastern North Carolina is where I call home. From the amazing beaches and mountains, to the caring neighborly people, there is no place like North Carolina. I would be honored to guide you through the process of finding your piece of this great state, and make it your home.
I have been #1 in the nation in real estate sales of all United Real Estate agents for the last 2 years. I am an expert in Residential and Commercial Sales, Foreclosures, Short Sales, and Property Management. I own United Real Estate offices in Greenville and Jacksonville, NC. I was born in Kinston, NC. I graduated from NC State University with a BS degree in mechanical engineering in 1998. After college I worked for 7 years managing test programs for new product development and for 2 years designing forklifts for Hyster-Yale while selling real estate part time. In 2007 my tremendous success and growth in real estate allowed me to go full time real estate sales. Since that time, I have been one of the top producing agents in real estate sales in my market. If you are looking to get top dollar for your listing or need help finding the perfect home at a great price I can help!
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.
