It’s no coincidence that RNR also stands for “Rock ‘N Roll” … because we think all of our agents are rock stars! Each month we will feature one of our team members to find out more about them and why they joined the biz. First up is Jen Kilzer, a rookie agent who is more than ready to help you achieve your home buying and selling dreams!
Q: How long have you been in the business?
A: I am new to the business; I entered into the real estate world in 2016.
Q: What’s your specialization?
A: I work with residential home buyers, especially people trying to establish themselves a bit later in life or re-establish themselves after life changing events, such as divorce.
Q: Where is your hometown?
A: I grew up in Richfield and returned there as an adult for 10 years. I currently reside in South Minneapolis.
Q: Why did you decide to become a real estate agent?
A: I have always had a passion for real estate and I’ve spent many years stalking homes on the internet, so I thought it was a good idea to take my passion for helping people and combine that with my love of housing and turn it into my second career.
Q: What is your dream home or favorite house style?
A: I really like townhouse living – I enjoy having more free-time by not having to do yard work and snow removal. As far as my dream home, I would choose a home with a view, preferably of a body of water. I like wide-open concepts and great views.
Q: What is your number one real estate tip?
A: I think the advice I give most frequently is that you don’t have to keep up with the Joneses – the Joneses may not be that happy. We need to find a home that best fits your family and your lifestyle. We want it to be nice but we also want it to fit your budget, so that you can be happy every day that you are in this home.
Q: What is your favorite thing about living in the Twin Cities?
A: There are so many things I love about the Twin Cities. Our schools are great. It’s a wonderful place to raise a family, and there are also great neighborhoods for young adults with no children. We have a lot of variety here, from things to do to the drastic season changes. I love it all!
Q: What would you say is the Twin Cities’ best kept secret?
A: I think the best kept secret would be the local theater/art talent that we have here. We also have a ton of amazing neighborhood restaurants that you might not expect to find in their locations, and then to top it off the food is fabulous.
Q: What is your favorite travel destination?
A: Playa Del Carmen, Mexico
Q: What is your favorite sports team?
A: My favorite sport is basketball and our MN Lynx are pretty amazing!
Q: What is your favorite quote?
A: “A house is made of bricks and beams; a home is made of hope and dreams.”
