Jamie Connors has been in real estate for 16 years, and her only regret is that she didn’t start sooner.
“I love my job, the whole process, I just love it,” Connors said. “No two transactions are alike. I take something different away from each one.”
Connor’s background in investment banking served her well when she switched career tracks to real estate in 2003. She brought her attention to detail and love of the game to helping people find their dream homes. Four years ago, she and her team joined the Dudum Real Estate Group in Brentwood.
“Jamie is so good,” said Julie Del Santo, broker and owner of Dudum Real Estate. “She is one hundred percent about the client, with class and positive networking with other agents. She is consistently a top agent, not just in terms of sales volume, but in terms of integrity, passion and skill. And she makes what’s an intimidating and crazy process in our roller coaster of an industry, fun.”
Connors believes that getting to know her clients helps her to serve them better. She works hard to make them feel like friends and family, not just customers.
“When you help someone find a house, you are with them for at least 45 days, so you get to know them,” explained Connors. “I don’t separate my business and my personal life; my business is my personal life. These clients become like family.”
Connors has had the honor of many repeat clients during her time as an agent. Kristle Jones is one such client. Connors helped Jones and her husband find their first home in Brentwood, and five years later, Jones called on Connors to sell their home. Connors went above and beyond, even helping the couple find and purchase a new home in Southern California.
“Jamie is pretty amazing,” Jones said. “You feel like you are the only one she is working for when you are with her. My husband and I call her the ‘dream maker,’ because whatever you want, she just makes it happen. And she doesn’t forget about you the second you have closed. She kept checking in on us and referred clients to my business, and just made us feel connected. She makes you feel like family.”
Connors is a big believer in networking and communication. She and her team work hard to provide their clients with the best real estate experience in the area. Their goal is to get their clients to “key day” with a big smile on their faces.
“I love the win of finding a house for my first-time buyers,” she said. “Key day, when we hand our clients the keys to their new home, is a happy day, even when you have transactions that don’t go the way you hoped they would. When we get to that day, it’s like none of that happened. Everyone is happy and it’s just a good day.”
When Connors isn’t handing over a set of keys, she is volunteering at her son’s school or attending community events. Connors chose Brentwood as her hometown because of its wholesome environment and busy calendar.
“I love Brentwood, it’s such a beautiful town,” she said. “I love the small-town feel and the family community.”
Connors lives in Brentwood with her husband of 25 years and their son.
