Jessica Elliott was standing at a professional crossroads when she came across a quote from Steve Jobs that gave her the clarity she needed to make a critical decision.
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”
Simple and profound, it was exactly the nudge she needed to get back to residential real estate.
At the start of her career, Jessica had been involved in new home sales in Dallas and around the metroplex after graduating from UT Dallas with a BA in Marketing/Business. She loved the relationships she had the chance to form with new clients and helping make the process less stressful for them. Through that job, she gained solid experience working with construction, mortgage, title and insurance companies.
But as life often does, it next took her in a new direction – one that was equally exciting, intriguing and would open a lot of doors. Jessica had the chance to pursue the open frontier of digital marketing. She spent seven years learning extensively about search engine optimization and online advertising. When it had run its course, she found herself pondering the possibilities -- and the aforementioned quote. That’s when she realized she was extremely well-positioned to return to her first love.
Jessica now sells real estate in and around the same East Dallas community where she lives. She continues to learn about all this big city has to offer – it stands in stark contrast to her East Texas hometown of less than 3,000 people! Jessica also enjoys being outside with her husband, Matt, and their two labs, Hattie and Riley.
