Jessica moved to San Francisco in 1994 from Chicago, where she was born and raised. She was attracted to the City’s natural beauty and free thinking. She worked in CD-ROM publishing and quickly moved to the web – CNET hired her in 1997 as an editor. In her mid 20’s she got wind that the 2-unit building she lived in the Inner Mission was going to go on the market – she told her landlords she wanted to buy it. She and her boyfriend (now husband) each came up with $10K, and they purchased the duplex in 1997 for $246K. They then purchased their home in Bernal Heights, keeping the Mission building and continuing to be landlords. In 2005, Jessica was the youngest female VP at CNET managing a multi-million dollar P&L and dozens of people and projects to success. She was ready for a change, and turned to her passion: real estate. They sold the Mission duplex for a 300% profit, and traveled for 5 months across Europe and Russia. When she returned, Jessica got her real estate license and began selling. In her first year practicing real estate Jessica was named Rookie of the Year – selling more residential real estate than 100’s of other new agents. Now, years later, she is at the top of her field. Jessica is well-versed in tenant/landlord issues, the best ideas for renovations, TICs, multi-unit investment properties, condos, and single family homes. Jessica lives in Bernal Heights and owns a multi-unit building in Noe Valley.
