WE ASKED JAMI A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT FINDING HER WAY TO TEAM ENDICOTT AND THE INDIANAPOLIS REAL ESTATE MARKET
Q: What made you want to join Team Endicott?
A: Tom Endicott…mic drop!
In all seriousness, I prefer working in a team environment, as there are many advantages. We all work together; leveraging our strengths and experience which translates into better client care. I think there is a tremendous opportunity for growth both, within my team and the Indianapolis market. I looked at the opportunity to join Team Endicott as a long term career move; knowing where I am now and where I will be in 5 years time. I could not have found a better mentor than what I have found in Tom Endicott. Tom Fisher has also been an invaluable resource; he always has answers to my various questions. Last but certainly not least, there is Pam Duffey. She is the glue that holds everything together. Her wealth of knowledge and ability to troubleshoot is unsurpassed. Pam has me spoiled! I was so used to doing everything by myself. Pam is a huge timesaver!
Q: What knowledge and skills do you think you bring to your clients?
A: I am local. I know the Indianapolis area and north suburbs well. I was born and raised in the Indianapolis area. My family moved frequently when I was younger from downtown Indianapolis to different suburbs. I currently live in Noblesville, which is where I graduated from high school. My family is spread out throughout the Fishers, Carmel, Noblesville, and Markleville areas.
In terms of formal education, I graduated from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business in Bloomington with degrees in Business Management and Marketing, with an emphasis in Distribution. I also have a Bachelor of Fine Art in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Atlanta and am registered with the NCIDQ, having taken parts of the exam. I am a member of ASID and IIDA.
Q: How did you get into real estate?
A: I started my interior design career working for a large hospitality firm in Atlanta, Georgia. That led to work in a high end residential design firm in Naples, Florida. I then moved into a design consultant role for a home furnishings showroom. I did a lot of room make overs, using existing pieces and incorporating new furnishings, materials, and accessories. My forte is space planning and staging. From there, I went into new home sales, working for Fischer Homes. This transition, was how I got into real estate, working for a builder and helping clients put together the home of their dreams. There are a lot of details to work out, when you start from dirt. I am very well acquainted with new home construction. Real Estate has been a natural progression for me. There is a tremendous sense of satisfaction helping clients find, build, and/or design “home”.
