I spent the majority of my childhood growing up here in Sandpoint after relocating from California. I stayed busy playing competitive soccer, snowboarding, playing on the lake and enjoying the vast amount of recreation this area has to offer.
After graduating high school I moved to Newport Beach, California. I soon realized a newfound appreciation for the lifestyle I so often took for granted throughout the years.
I moved home and found myself working as a Realtor assistant which opened the door for me to pursue a career in Real Estate. I worked as the marketing director of Century 21, licensed assistant to multiple agents, office manager at a property management company and most recently as an independent agent. I have put my great wealth of experience in customer service, marketing, and property management to the test and continue to utilize those tools to aid in the development of relationships in the real estate community.
Being a professional in the real estate industry is a full-time, life-long career and requires dedication and hard work. I strive to provide my clients with proper service by promptly returning phone calls and emails, routinely touching base with clients and prospects, following up on leads and showings and remaining up to speed with current technology, education, and market trends.
I love helping people achieve their real estate goals and look forward to making long lasting relationships along the way. I couldn’t think of a better place in the world for my husband and I to raise our two children and take advantage of all life has to offer….this truly is a little piece of paradise and I hope you can come experience it for yourself!
Words are insufficient to describe how pleased my wife and I are with Jolena having sold our house. After 13 months of unemployment and in an admittedly difficult economy we placed our home on the market of June 2010. By the end of July the original realtor felt that she wouldn't be able to sell the house recommended that we work with Jolena who had experience in dealing with short-sales and foreclosure sales. Jolena jumped in and quickly worked with us and our bank to get the house sold. She worked tirelessly to to show the house and promote the property. She was very sensitive to our needs and concerns yet moved aggressively to get the house sold. As we neared the final date for auction she successfully found the perfect buyer and quickly negotiated the sale of the house. My wife and I can still hardly believe that Jolena was able to sell the house, but she truly seemed to work miracles.
I recommend Jolena without any hesitation, and am confident that she will do everything she can to help any seller in this distressed market!

Jolena initially responded to an e-mail question regarding a float home in Bayview I sent through your web site in May. Her timely Reponses, knowledge, and sensitivity to our needs, eventually resulted in our purchase of that home by mid June.
Being out-of-country buyers presented some special circumstances which Jolena just took into her own hands and took care of. For example, she fronted $50.00, on our behalf, to the home inspector in order for him to make a second visit to the home.
Jolena is a pleasant, professional, delightful young woman, and I would recommend her to any future clients.

"Jolena was our agent when we bought our first home. She made the experience easy and enjoyable. She was knowledgeable, and she found us exactly what we wanted! She was flexible and always adjusted her schedule to fit the needs or our busy life.
She earned our trust and we could not be happier. We will absolutely use her in the future!"
