Jennifer Downs

Broker in Charge (BIC) NC, Commercial Realtor & Business Broker
Full Bio

Meet Jennifer Downs. She has lived in Charlotte, NC for the past 12 years and has been working closely with investors from all over the world. She assists them in acquiring distressed properties throughout the southeast. Jennifer handles the entire process of identifying the properties with potential, assessing risk and providing projections for expected profits, fixing and flipping the properties, and/or placing tenants. She provided investors with residential or commercial investments to suit their budget and ROI requirements.

She began her real estate career about 18 years ago using an SBA loan and home equity to acquire a business inside a commercial property listed by Steve Radekopf. Steve was able to help her and lend some expertise in properly structuring the deal. Later she was able to purchase real estate with 5 acres after increasing the revenue. Several years later Steve assisted her as her broker again to sell the property and business together for a substantial profit.

Since then Jennifer Downs obtained extensive experience with buying and selling foreclosure properties. She also has experience rehabbing and wholesaling hundreds of single and multi-family homes using both private or hard money. Her motivation to get involved with real estate came from reading the book Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kyosaki. When she’s not involved in a real estate deal, she is running her health club in North Charleston, SC. She also enjoys spending time with her teenage daughter. Jennifer is a Zillow Premier Agent, formerly with CJH Properties LLC and Better Real Estate Carolinas.
