NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ – August 2, 2017 – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New Jersey Properties wishes to extend a warm welcome to Jennifer Sarkissian, the newest member of the team of sales professionals at the company’s New Providence office.

“One of the most exciting aspects of the real estate business is that so many of our agents transition to us from other careers across a variety of industries,” said Mike Del Duca, sales manager at the New Providence Office. “That diversity of experience can create a uniquely qualified and dynamic sales professional with insights, skills and business acumen unlike most. Jennifer is a shining example of that caliber of professional. Previously with Keller Williams, she joins us with a resume that includes international business, corporate communications and even a stint in the broadcasting industry. Jennifer personifies the integrity of our global Berkshire Hathaway brand and I am thrilled to have this opportunity to work with her and support her efforts as she expands her business.”  

Early on and well before real estate was her destination, Jennifer discovered that location is everything. She interned in New York where she was selected to be an intern at NBC, and that took her to Seoul, South Korea for the 1988 Olympics. After serving as an Examinations Officer at Harvard University, she spent several years in Geneva working in corporate communications, human resources and as a research analyst.  In 2004, she returned to the states, eventually settling in Summit. Jennifer speaks fluent French and when she isn't spending time with her family or traveling, she enjoys volunteering at Our Lady of Peace Church in New Providence and donating her time at the Little Flower Homeless Shelter.
