Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty
Working alongside builders for more than 16 years has afforded Jessica Huffman a unique perspective on the homebuying and selling experience – a perspective that many seek for guidance.
“Because of my experience with multiple facets of the industry, I have a lot of other agents coming to me for advice,” says Huffman.
With a deep, abiding appreciation for learning, Huffman has remained adamant about continuing her real estate education through the years, making sure to attend classes and trainings as often as possible.
“I enjoy challenging myself and staying involved,” she says, explaining her interest in both industry trends and technology.
Her efforts were validated when she was able to keep steady business during the market crash. Huffman also acts as a coach and mentor to many agents, and teaches “tech tips” during Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty sales meetings.
A past member of the Atlanta Board of Realtors Professional Standards Committee and past vice president for the Board of Realtors, Huffman is an active participant in the industry, striving to make a positive impact. However, despite her many hats, it’s the relationships with clients and the thrill of successfully negotiating a deal that keeps her going.
“Atlanta has this undeniable southern charm that is just friendly,” she says. “I’m naturally personable, so it’s easy for me to connect with others here.”
And it shows. Huffman now generates the entirety of her business from referrals. She says that it’s about being honest with your clients, building trust and imparting on them the importance with which you take your position and their future.
