Blending in-depth knowledge of the New York real estate market with a refined international background, Jessica is uniquely equipped to guide buyers and sellers through the entire transaction process. An expert in the Brooklyn market who is also adept at forming close connections with her clients, Jessica thrives by helping each person she represents find a property where they feel comfortable, happy, and fulfilled.
“We were buying and selling at the same time so coordinating two closings was a real challenge,” says one client. “I can honestly say we couldn’t have made it happen without Jessica. She was always available and responsive throughout the entire process. We ended up winning the bid over six others, while Jessica helped us get a good price for our apartment and found a buyer willing to work within our timeframe.”
Prior to joining the world of real estate, Jessica’s expansive worldview was influenced by her professional experience with the acclaimed Hirsch Vineyards and the award-winning fashion house, Santa Cruz Imports. Raised in the boardrooms, vineyards, and designer showrooms of her entrepreneurial parents, Jessica was a worldwide traveler throughout her childhood. This exposure to the food and wine industry, luxury fashion, lifestyle, and global culture has provided Jessica with an innate and honed sense of style—as well as a wide network of global contacts. In addition, her mother, a top-producing real estate broker in Hawaii, gave Jessica invaluable firsthand knowledge of international real estate.
Raised in the Bay Area, Jessica has spent time in New York since she was very young, and attended the exclusive Mt. Tamalpais School, Marin Academy and Boston University. She spent several years studying sustainability and economics in India, Mexico, New Zealand, and the Philippines—along with a year abroad in France—further cementing Jessica’s love of travel, fashion, and international lifestyles. Her ability to blend modern sensibilities with custom-tailored service has proven to be the perfect match for representing all her clients’ needs. Her enthusiasm and vision give her a unique ability to seamlessly meld aesthetics, economics, and style—and loans her real estate practice a personal and disciplined edge.
A proud Brooklyn resident who loves raising her family here, Jessica understands the importance of home and hearth and relishes the chance to use her considerable skills to help others find their own dream habitats here. When she’s not scouring brownstone Brooklyn for perfect homes, she enjoys yoga, vintage and modern furniture shopping, cooking, and perusing the Brooklyn Flea for treasures with her husband and two children.
“Jessica was fantastic to work with. We were very skeptical to work with a broker given our past experience with some, and are happy to report that she was unlike any other! Jessica is honest, ethical, and a hard worker, who's willing to put in the time to find a good fit for you. We had tons of questions about our prospective apartment, and she was extremely responsive and sought out the answers from the sellers immediately. In the end, we got the first apartment we bid on, thanks to Jessica, and we can't wait to move in shortly!”
