Born and raised in Grand Rapids I am passionate about all our city and surrounding areas have to offer and all the growth that is happening. I’ve been in real estate full time since 2017. As the Operations Manager on the GR Home Team I ensure all details and timelines are met and the ‘behind the scenes’ runs smoothly.
In my free time I enjoy training for triathlons and half marathons partnered with Team World Vision to raise money for clean drinking water around the globe. My other hobbies included gardening and hiking.
Lisa Jekel is a transaction and marketing coordinator and has worked with GR Home Team for seven years. Lisa attended Forest Hills Central High School and Hope College.
