Family is important and Jenette is grateful for the support of her family that encouraged her to follow her passion for real estate, where she can use her business skills and expertise to assist her clients in making their dream homes a reality.

About 10 years ago Brian brought his culinary skills to Brunswick County and began working in private clubs that included: Cape Fear Country Club, Bald Head Island Club, Saint James Plantation, and Figure 8 Yacht Club.

Together, when not working, they are members of the local British Car Club. As animal lovers, they support many animal charities such as the ASPCA and HSUS, along with other smaller local organizations. Their pets are a big part of their lives and they often visit Bark Park South, a local dog park, and go walking on the beach with their rescued Shepherd mix and Australian Cattle dog. They love to travel and have both lived in several other states, so they understand the stresses of relocating long distance. As much as they love to travel and visit other parts of the world, they also know there is no place like home, and that is the feeling of joy they wish for their clients.
Jenette provided us with excellent service during our home buying process. She was very knowledgeable about the different areas we were searching for a home in and was always prompt to answer any questions we had. Since we were out of state buyers, we especially appreciated how we could rely on her to visit homes for us and thoroughly video the properties we were interested in. Even after our closing, Jenette was available to help us out with any concerns. 5 well deserved stars for Jenette!
She helped me and my husband find a house. She made appointments so we could see places of possible interest. She let us know facts about properties we may not have known from Zillow, Realtor, etc. She is friendly and kind. Thumbs up Jenette. Thank you for your help.
Honest, reliable, punctual, hard working! That’s just the start. Meeting her for the first time was a joy, she was a very warm and personable. I’ve sent her texts at 3 am like a crazed fool and she never missed a beat. Called her with a property we wanted to see and she made it happen the same day, now that is some doing, I know it can be tough to get appointments in a few days. Answered all our questions without hesitation and sought out answers from the seller and forwarded that info ASAP. We never had to wait for anything, surprising in this day and age when everyone seems to think there is plenty of time for everything. Added bonus, she loves to joke with people and make the experience as less stressful as it can be. We could have gotten any real estate agent, and it probably would have been fine, but, we got Janette, and as far as we are concerned it was a total win win. She rocks and helped us get our new home in Conway, SC!
