Jennifer Giattino's entry to real estate came almost by accident. After ending her career as a trader at Goldman Sachs to begin her family, she decided to take the real estate licensing course when a friend told her she didn't want to take the course alone. A few weeks into the course, Jennifer discovered that she had found a profession that she could love. “My friend said, 'You're really good at this,' and I was! It felt like the perfect next step for me.” Soon, Jennifer was a licensed agent and set out to find an office to join. “I contacted absolutely every office in town,” she said, “and while many seemed to want me to join, none of them really interviewed me. Hudson Place Realty was different. The broker wanted to know who I was, what I could bring to the firm, and what my motivations were. That impressed me a lot.” Before long, Jennifer joined the firm and embarked her new career.


Beyond her interest in the textbook aspects of the profession, Jennifer realized that working in real estate was a way to extend her community service experience. “When my children were born, I started meeting so many parents who loved Hoboken and wanted to find ways to make it better,” she recalls. After being involved in the “parent team” at her children's' school, and progressing from committee member to committee chair, Jennifer was compelled to find new ways to serve the community. She founded a program for youngsters called Art in the Parks, which brought her into contact with a wider circle of parents and was “every day listening to my neighbors talk about local issues and what their families needed. This gave me a real sense of community and ideas about what I might be able to do to foster a stronger community.”


Working with families to find great homes helps her do that. “I absolutely love where I live,” she says, “and I want to help other families find their place here.” That sense of place, she believes, includes not just a place to live, but also a voice in the discussion of what is happening and should be happening. One day, someone suggested that Jennifer consider running for an open seat on the city council, but she did not give it much thought. “A few days later, someone else made the same suggestion, and then another, and before much longer, I came to see it as the next logical step in my service to the community.”


Today, Jennifer is a busy woman, with three young sons and a seat on the city council, but she still finds time to work with clients. She believes her varied experiences in community service and her broad knowledge of everything Hoboken has to offer families are valuable to her clients. “My strongest asset is my own experience in service to my neighbors,” she said. “My customers really appreciate my involvement in the community, and it helps me to be a better agent for them.”
