Century 21 Rockgate broker, Jackie Bissonette, located in Howard City, is our guest on episode 32

Jackie  Bissonette   grew up in Bay City until her late 20’s when her family moved to Houghton Lake MI. She worked for Consumers Energy at the time in Human Resources and her husband was a chef and running the kitchen of a local restaurant. As her career took off in the HR field, she took advantage of career opportunities and spent the next 21 years in various aspects of HR including employee relations, change management, staffing and recruiting, and coaching managers. During that time Jackie worked for only 2 companies, Consumers Energy for 15 years and Universal Weather and Aviation, a Houston based company for the next 6 years. These job opportunities led to many corporate relocations and when her and her husband finally arrived back in Michigan in 2012, they bought a farm and decided to get into real estate and became a licensed agent. From all of those moves, she had a lot of experience being a buyer and seller so knew what traits to work on as a REALTOR and what traits to avoid. Her HR skills parlayed well with the consultative aspects of real estate so it was a good match for her. From there, she opened Rockgate Real Estate in 2017 and set up an office on M46 in Howard City. That was doing fine and then in November of last year CENTURY 21 contacted her and began exploring franchise opportunities.  A great move to offer her agents the training and technology tools they were seeking. About that same time, Jackie acquired a second building in downtown Howard City where the office is now.  Located at  220 E Edgerton Street in Howard City CENTURY 21 Rockgate is open 9-5 weekdays, reach out and connect at 1 231-937-1077.  You can find Jackie at https://www.facebook.com/c21rockgate and https://www.c21rockgate.com
