Jenny McGlothin




Keller Williams Signature

For Jenny McGlothin, a career in real estate came a bit unexpectedly. Prior to obtaining her real estate license five years ago, she worked at the Knoxville News Sentinel in marketing and advertising. During her last year or so at the News Sentinel, her focus was on real estate advertising.

“I loved working with realtors on the advertising side, and I learned how each one ran their business which intrigued me,” she explained. “The thought of maintaining a strong client focused career but set to a less structured schedule really appealed to me. I did my research and decided to make a career change.

My first buyer and listing client were actually both former colleagues of mine. I was so thankful for their confidence in me early on, and I knew I would always appreciate the trust and faith clients put in me when it comes to helping them buy and sell homes.”

When it comes to the things she likes about working in real estate, McGlothin says the list is long.

“There are so many things I love about working in real estate, but if I had to choose the main one, I would say it is the relationships I’ve made that strengthen my business and level of service to my clients,” she said. “Not just client relationships, but those with other realtors, inspectors, appraisers, handymen, landscapers and more.

“I believe maintaining strong relationships with good people is a most prized asset,” she continued. “Having those relationships really helps since so much of the profession is understanding how to keep clients feeling excited and happy when things are thrown their way that cause frustration and anxiety. I really try to help my clients focus on the end goal, whatever that may be for them, and stay positive and professional.”
