Jen has successfully merged over 46 years of varied work and life experience into a real estate career that focuses on the goals and dreams of her clients. Her expertise in the areas of networking, negotiating, marketing, decorating, staging, and relocation are vital tools that help her assist clients in streamlining their process, whether purchasing or selling property.
In 2011, Jen and her husband, Pat, moved to Hawaii from the pristine resort community of Big Bear, California. Their unique experience of living in a 450 not-so-square-foot vintage yurt on the Hamakua Coast led her to write My Year In A Yurt, a unique faith-based book on off-grid, tiny house living. They later purchased a one-of-a-kind, off-grid home a quarter mile—as the wild turkey flies— from the yurt, and continue to enjoy life in the Ohia forest...complete with an ocean view!
As a life-long equestrian, Jen flew her 29-year old Palomino and their Nubian goat to the Big Island when they settled in the quaint town of Paauilo. Her love of nature and appreciation of a well-tended garden, as well as her interest and support of the ever-growing tiny house movement, adds to her real estate expertise.
Whether you are looking to acquire or sell a home in Waimea, a cottage in Honokaa, a ranch in Laupahoehoe, or another option from the multitude of others available on the Big Island, Jen will assist you by working in tandem with you and the entire Clark Realty, along with their partnership with the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® network, focusing on your specific needs from your property search to closing of escrow!
"Looking back at the details of my property being sold, I realized things went a lot smoother than I expected. Your expertise and professionalism was top notch! I got a great price on my condo. And, thank you for the delicious gift basket. I have been through many real estate transactions but this is the first where I got a gift. Much Mahalo!"

"Jen is a seller’s advocate, using her expertise, positive attitude, and communication skills on your behalf when you list with her. Her good judgement, market sense, and specialized knowledge make her an ideal choice. She made sure we were updated every step of the way as she kept the momentum up to get our property on the market. Her marketing skills add great value to working with her, and I can’t imagine a better choice for a realtor.

"What a great and pleasant experience we had working with Jen in getting our home off the market, after two short months, and into escrow! Living over 2,000 miles away, we needed someone whom we could fully depend on to put their best foot forward in helping us sell our property. And this she did! She kept us in the loop on every house showing and worked diligently on our behalf, with each potential customer. She listened to our wishes and was very patient with our questions. We highly recommend Jen if you're ever in the market to put your house on the market."

"We initially met and hired Jen when she owned her cleaning and decorating business. Then, when she received her real estate license, we mentioned that we owned a lot in Honokaa that we had listed for sale the previous year. She exhibited great interest in assisting us in not only listing the lot again, but actively marketing it for sale. After a number of conversations, we decided to move forward, feeling that she was truly interested in helping us. We have been very happy with the professional way in which she listed the property, assisted us in having a full survey completed, and has marketed it to potential buyers. And we feel confident that when the buyer arrives, she will handle that portion of the transaction in the same profession manner. Plus, we like her!
