Great friends, even better team!
Jen and Natalie have been friends for a long time and worked out at CrossFit together. When it was time for Natalie to sell her house in City of Decatur, she brought Jen in to get it done. Jen then helped Natalie find her dream home in Avondale Estates. When it was time for Natalie‘s parents to move locally, Natalie asked Jen to help find their little nest in Avondale Estates.
One day, the two dear friends were talking about the future. Jen had always respected Natalie‘s business acumen, levelheadedness, and gentle heart. She asked Natalie to get her license and come work with her. And the story is written in the stars from there…
Jen has been a sort of “jack of all trades” throughout her professional career. She’s done a little bit of everything and mixed them together to be the full-service real estate agent that she is today.
From her early career working as a project manager for the 1996 Olympic games, then having a floral design business and owning a retail folk art store Square Roots in Decatur, to creating a children’s clothing line (Lilliwear/Lillibands, named after her daughter, Lilly!) and now, as a realtor with KW, life has not been boring. The one consistent piece in all of her experience has been her love of sales and people. Combine years of experience doing this & that, and you've got Jen Newman "realtor extraordinaire"!
Truly, Jen‘s favorite place in the world is her own home. Jen talks about "that feeling" that you get when you know you are home. She wants everyone to feel the same kind of happiness that she feels when she walks through her door. The job she’s MOST PROUD of is that of mom of Jake (20) and Lily (15). She’s also happily surrounded by her many pets including dogs cats and horses!
Jen's always embarrassed (& humbled) to admit to her various awards for sales over the years. In 2021, she was recognized as one of the Top Agents with the Dekalb Board of Realtors (out of over 2000 agents!). She came in at #6 in Sales out of over 2000 agents. What does this mean? Not much, really. Except that she will work her butt off for you and has proven that she can & will.
Natalie comes from a strong corporate and entrepreneurial professional background, which prepared her for the jump into real estate!
From her early years as a recruiter and her career in pharmaceutical sales, she learned the importance of knowledge, trust & loyalty, and OVER communication. She believes that a positive attitude is paramount to success in working with clients.
Natalie's next move was an entrepreneurial role when she founded Coobella as a full-time mom, a novelty baby gift company inspired and named after her two beautiful children Isabel (14) and Cooper (12). This adventure affirmed her love of building unique relationships with each of her customers and having a positive impact on their lives.
Natalie considers herself a "homebody." Whether it is being home relaxing with her family & rescue pup Winston, or entertaining & cooking for friends, her home is truly where her heart is! She understands a home is special to everyone in their own way. This, and her passion for people and their happiness, is truly what landed her in real estate and makes her the perfect person to be on this journey with!
