Jennifer Barona, Real Estate Agent

Born and raised in South Florida Jennifer made the decision to move to South Carolina strait out of high school. In which time she realized that she was a Florida girl at heart and needed to go back. So, in 2010 she moved to Gainesville, Home of the Florida Gators, for school at Santa Fe College for business management. Her love of spending time outdoors riding bikes, attending University of Florida sporting events and especially visiting the fresh water springs and the beautiful Florida beaches with her family are some of the many reasons she loves Gainesville. However after a long day she needs snuggle time with her 4 legged family members. Ever since she took her first job back in high school, she knew working in real estate and one day becoming a real estate investor was her ultimate goal. With each and every job she took she learned many valuable lessons as well as figuring out early in life that coffee really was her best friend. She always sees the positive in people as well as keeping a smile on her face and making sure everyone around her is also smiling. Jennifer made the decision to Join Watson Realty because of the extensive training and knowledge you can't find anywhere else. "I am so happy to start my career with Watson, they have the most training available and I know that if something comes up I will always have the knowledge of the other agents as well as a great Broker." Jennifer looks forward to helping ?you with your real estate needs.
