Coming from a real estate family, Jen is a third generation realtor. Her grandparents owned a real estate brokerage in Colleyville and trained real estate agents including her mom and aunt. But Jen has not always wanted to be in real estate. Growing up her desire was to be in the medical field so she could help people. After graduating from Grapevine High School, Jen’s love for sports allowed her to play collegiate volleyball and get a bachelors in science. While on the pre med track, Jen decided to change directions and jumped at an opportunity to help people by working in the ministry non profit world.
Jen moved overseas and ran a non profit organization in Thailand for several years, helping with community development alongside a local Thai church. Serving the Thai people through various projects such as clean water, providing jobs for underprivileged and disadvantaged through jewelry making, and starting a small orphanage home, were some of the most life changing events that have shaped Jen’s love for people of all kinds.
Upon returning home, Jen ran her mother’s real estate team and enjoyed working with every client. Jen can tell you- all her life experiences have led up to her life purpose of serving people through real estate. At a real estate conference, a light bulb came on from listening to a speaker on how she could serve people and invest in their lives, while giving back to her own local community by helping people with their real estate needs.
Jen has worked with various coaches and mentors to help her become one of the local market experts so she can serve her clients with the knowledge, expertise and passion they deserve. Her passion is people and making a difference in their lives.
I am so grateful and appreciative of Jen Blackwood and her team in helping me to sell my condo and can’t recommend her enough in getting your place sold too!! The personal attention to detail in getting listed to walking through the multiple contracts with me to select the best one was such a blessing! Jen was very knowledgable about the current market which led to such a quick sell! Thanks, Jen! It was such a pleasant experience to sell my home with you!
