My name is Jennifer Johnson and I am a Buyer’s Specialist. Arizona has always been home for me. I am a third generation Arizonan and was raised in Casa Grande, AZ when the population was less than 5,000 and you knew almost everyone in town. My father owned the local lumber and hardware store. I had uncles who were at once the fire chief, an attorney and owned the local Western Auto Store. When I graduated from high school my father handed me my diploma because he was the President of the School Board…not to mention he was the first mailman Casa Grande had. It was sort of like growing up in Mayberry. Some of my best childhood memories come from growing up with 24 cousins let alone being the youngest and only girl with three older brothers.
I graduated from high school in Casa Grande and went on the attend The University of Arizona. Moving to the “big city” from a small town was quite the adjustment. I soon found my new family when I joined the Pi Beta Phi sorority. I graduated with a business degree in Marketing and Management. I landed my first job working for what was then Valley National Bank and began a career in the financial world. I started in sales working in the credit card processing division for seven years before I found a new interest in being a mortgage originator. I gained valuable experience in the mortgage origination and management side for over 11 years. Seeing the highs and lows of the market I took my experience from working with sellers and buyers and became a Realtor® in 2007.
My experience in the mortgage industry has proven valuable for my buyer’s. From getting prequalified, becoming fully approved, funding the loan to writing the offer/contract, negotiating a fair price along with inspections and repairs for the right home. I believe building a relationship with my clients through honesty, integrity, educating and excellent communications is a win-win. I am very passionate about my job and am always striving to be a professional first class Realtor®.
I met my husband while attending the University of Arizona. We married in 1990 and just recently celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary. We have resided in Chandler for over 27 years raising three children. As we have watched and supported our children in multiple activities, traveling, a recent college graduate and two in college it’s been an exciting time. Now we have an empty nest and a whole new bucket list!
With my financial background from sales, mortgage originating and being a Realtor® who has recently earned my Master Certified Negotiation Expert designation (fewer than 1% of all agents have earned this designation), my clients will have the confidence of getting the right home at the best price. When the transaction has closed the best memories are handing over the keys to clients for their new memories and dreams to come true. If I’ve done my job they will be clients for life!
