Jessica Durham , Realtor
Jessica Durham began working at a real estate company as a receptionist when she was 18-years old and quickly moved into managing the listing and pending departments. She obtained her real estate license in 2005 and began working in new construction. Since then, Jessica has become very educated on the Treasure Valley real estate market and has personally invested in real estate.
Jessica says, “I have decided to make real estate my full-time career because it’s always been my hobby and my passion and I’m ready for it to become a way for me to help others. It’s exciting to be with my clients when they are viewing their dream home for the first time, or finding the perfect investment property for them - or even selling their first home as they’re getting ready to purchase their move-up home. It’s a privilege to be a part of their experience and getting to see the emotions that go along with it each step of the way.”
Helping her clients feel comfortable throughout every step of their real estate journey is Jessica’s number one goal in serving them. She says, “Whether it be first time home buyers or seasoned investors, I want my clients to know that I am their advocate and I will be there to educate them throughout every chapter of their real estate story.” She continues, “I love how every transaction is different and I learn something new every time. I enjoy challenging myself and real estate is the perfect way to do so.”
Jessica holds a bachelors degree in marketing from Boise State University and an MBA from Northwest Nazarene University. She is also a certified Special Education and General Education teacher in the state of Idaho. She says, “My marketing and business background has given me a great platform for understanding how to effectively market properties as well as understanding the financial aspects of real estate. Additionally, my previous work experience helps me in my negotiations with other realtors (and sellers) to ensure that my clients are getting the best possible deal.”
A Boise native since 2003, Jessica previously lived in Emmett and prior to that, she resided in her hometown of Yakima, Washington. She says her favorite aspect of our community is that she, “Loves the sense of pride that Boiseans take in their community. Everyone who lives here loves it and you can see it on their faces. I love spending my time outdoors and literally have every type of activity at my fingertips here.”
When Jessica isn’t working her real estate business, you’ll find her spending as much time as possible with her growing family in Idaho’s beautiful outdoors. She recently got married last October and welcomed a new baby girl to her family in April. She also has a 6-year-old son. They all enjoy hiking and exploring nature as a family as well as enjoying the arts in Boise. Over the years, Jessica has volunteered for Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boise Young Professionals, the Boise Hive, and Girls on the Run. She has also traveled internationally to Kenya, Nairobi to volunteer at an orphanage for an extended amount of time. Currently, her focus is on her growing family and her real estate career.
The Mike Brown Group is so excited to welcome Jessica to our team!
