Jenna Cotton - Realtor ®®
My family has lived here in Fredericksburg for the past four and a half years. My husband and I are both prior Army Veterans and have really taken to the plentiful history and the friendly people! We couldn't have asked for a better place to call home! I have been in real estate since 2009 and am proud to say that I have worked with hundreds of clients and helped them to reach their real estate goals.
Why did I get into real estate?
Well, do you know the show fixer-upper? I grew up in a fixer-upper! This experience, made me appreciate what it means to own your own home and it is what propelled me to purchase my first home shortly after joining the Army. I purchased my first home when I turned 18 and have bought, sold and invested in many more since then! For the past 9 years, it is what has inspired me to advise and help others to obtain, sell or lease out their own real estate investments. Of course, I didn’t realize it at the time, I was a mere 7 years old when my parents purchased a rough looking late 1800s farmhouse. I remember things like, taking a ladder to my bedroom because the stairs were removed, and plastic sheets taping off areas of the home being worked on. I remember my Uncle Joe staying with us for weeks to build a barn and helping my Dad pick veggies in the garden. Mostly I remember, the hardwork and sweat equity they put into that house. They even made my dream bedroom come true. It had grassy green carpet and sunny yellow walls and I had a big yellow floral comforter.... crazy, I know but it was an 8 year olds dream in the 90’s. I realize now I never would’ve had this experience if my parents continued renting in the city and never purchased that old farmhouse where so many memories were made. ❤️
Fast forward 30 years later and I absolutely love helping my clients reach their own goals and finding that ideal house that they will make a home. The stories are endless and I am so honored to play a small part!
To me, being a real estate agent is about nurturing relationships with integrity and helping people, not about the commission or the sale. I put my clients needs first. It’s as simple as that.
