Jessica PorterLicensed R.E. Salesperson
Jessica’s top priority is creating a positive, personalized experience for her clients in what can be an overwhelming process of trying to find the right apartment in NYC.
Jessica grew up going to job sites for her father’s Northern Virginia construction company, watching homes being built from the ground up. She started her real estate career in the DC Metro area, where she fell in love with the process of assisting her clients to buy, sell and rent homes. After honing her skills in the DC Metro area, Jessica decided to tackle a new market. She has always been drawn to the fast-paced nature of New York City, and relishes the chance to connect with a diverse array of people.
Jessica is part of a top producing rental team in Upper Manhattan, who closed over 400 rental deals last year. She specializes in the Upper West Side, West Harlem, Washington Heights and Inwood markets.
Jessica attended the University of Maryland Baltimore County where she studied Media Communications . Prior to working in real estate, Jessica spent several years in retail store management, where she strengthened her ability to work with a variety of personalities and handle high stress situations with grace. Originally from a small town in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay, Jessica now resides in Harlem. When she's back in Maryland she still enjoys crabbing & making her own crab cake recipe she's perfected over the years. Jessica is very passionate about health and the environment. She has volunteered at local sustainable farms and herb gardens. Outside of the office she can usually be found at the gym lifting weights, in the kitchen cooking something organic or curled up reading with her cat, Isabel Fluffingtons.
