Jennifer lives in South Williamsport with her husband Dave and their dog, Frankie. Some of her favorite things about Williamsport include the lack of traffic, farmers market, and the Susquehanna River Walk. Jennifer started her career in property management in Harrisburg, PA leasing and managing various large rental communities in 2004. After taking some time to complete a full time MBA program at Penn State, she moved to Williamsport and created One Focus Property Management. She now leads this business in managing the largest residential real estate portfolio in the area. Her passion is finding ways to maximize the value of her clients’ investments by providing comfortable homes for people, reducing risk in operations, and by controlling costs. Jennifer frequently gives rental property advice on news programs and podcasts. She also teaches a Landlord 101 course at the Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Workforce Development Center. When she isn’t working, she is playing with her dog in the river. Some of her favorite things include biking on local rail trails, reading and wine tasting in the Finger Lakes.
