Jenifer graduated from Nashville, IL High School & attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale where she studied Metalsmithing (hmmm...) & met her husband, Ivan. Always being the entrepreneurial type, she began her first business venture, Rainbow Revival, at the age of fourteen through which she sold her handcrafted jewelry at local festivals. And although she no longer makes jewelry, she really enjoys buying it.
Buying & selling real estate since 1999, she has sold over $60 million since. She is broker/owner of Garcia Properties & member of the Missouri Association of Realtors, St. Louis Association of Realtors & St Louis Urban Affairs Committee. She is also an active investor, having owned & managed hundreds of rental units. Jenifer was recognized nationally in 2007, receiving Realtor Magazine's "30 Under 30" award...just before she turned 30. Whew.
Other non-real estate related hobbies include yoga (she's founder of Southtown Yoga), camping, canoeing, wearing flip flops, traveling with hubby Ivan & going on excursions with their little daughters, Dale & Herbi.
