Jessica was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and moved with her family to the Santa Clara Valley, California in the early 1960's when the valley was a beautifully landscaped tapestry of apricot, cherry and walnut orchards. It was here she was raised and later met and married her best friend, Ralph and created their family. As the valley made the transition from agriculture to high tech, Jessica went to work and built an 11.5 year career that included Procurement, Sales and Operations commencing in Silicon Valley's early days. It was through her experience in this arena that Jessica learned and became the tough negotiator that she continues to be today.
In 1992 the family relocated to Austin, TX with a move with Apple Computer for Ralph. Following the move, Jessica went back to school and 1997 received a (BSN) Bachelor Science in Nursing from The University of Texas-Austin. Years following she worked as a Labor and Delivery nurse at a local hospital.
Having always been interested in real estate, Jessica became a REALTOR in May 2002 and began her real estate career with Coldwell Banker United Realtors. Ralph joined Jessica and her team in 2005. Following six successful years of practice at CBUR and yet still wanting more for their clients, Jessica and Ralph moved their business to Keller Williams Realty-MC#1 in May of 2008 in the effort to broaden and customize their business model to further meet their clients needs in today's ever dynamic and changing real estate landscape.
The blending of Jessica's past business and nursing experiences have been the cornerstone of her successful approach to real estate. Her goal is to meet each of her clients where ever they are in life and then provide information about the market, education about the sales process coupled with advice and opinion obtained from years of experience, thereby allowing them to make informed decisions for themselves and their families. The same level of commitment and resource availability continues for each and every client in the hopes of establishing life long relationships.
Jessica's passion has always been working with first time home buyers and their families. Jessica holds a GRI and ABR designation and was listed as one of the top 100 agents nation wide with Quality Service Certification, and independent third party surveying company and holds a platinum status with them.
In 2009, Jessica returned to the Santa Clara Valley to open an additional real estate operation that implements the same, highly acclaimed "Value Added" approach to Real Estate that they offer in Texas. Jessica works out of the Keller Williams/Silicon Valley office on South Bascom Avenue in Campbell and regularly commutes between Austin and San Jose. Ralph continues to manage the Texas team in the Keller Williams first and largest market center located on South Mopac Expressway in Southwest Austin.
