Jacqueline LotzofBroker – Team Lead
Jacquline knows what it takes to buy and sell your property. Growing up in a real estate family, and playing key roles in over $200 million in real estate transactions for a wide range of commercial and residential properties nationwide, she quickly learned the importance of achieving the security of a sound investment and solid return for the client.

Her approachable yet professional demeanor, refined organizational skills, and dedication to her clients keep her keenly focused and able to deliver results.

“I learned the secrets behind my father’s success in real estate and put that same dedication, intuition, and construction know-how to work for my clients. I value the importance of cultivating and maintaining relationships, something I focus on daily in every aspect of my personal and professional life.”

With Jacqueline’s prior years of experience running her construction company, she brings knowledgeable insights to understand a home’s true potential. She is an invaluable resource to her clients, whether buying or selling she can source everything that her clients will need during the process.
