Jennifer Almeida – Gelles
Broker / Owner
I’m a Southern California native with a passion for real estate. Having had the joy of working in this market for 16 years, I bring a local perspective—along with ongoing communication and transparency—to each of my transactions. As my client, you’ll always know what’s going on and have an advocate in answering your questions. The real estate process doesn’t need to be complicated when you have the right representation. To secure that great deal, you’ll need an experienced negotiator, and my clients can rest assured knowing that I work hard to make sure they get the most out of their time and money.
Being able to give back to the local community has brought purpose to my career and life. In the last five years I have delved into the business of helping investors flip homes. So if you’re looking to branch into real estate as an investment or buy/sell your home, I look forward to helping you meet your goals.

I started my career in the commercial real estate industry more than ten years ago. I then took some time off to become a mother of three. During this time, I became even more aware of how central and focal the home is to the family. This drove me to transition into the residential side where I can find the perfect home for other families. JAG Realty is known for providing straightforward, no nonsense, exemplary service and I am very excited to join the team. Being a mom, I know what needs to be done and will get it done as efficiently and smoothly as possible. I am always ready to serve our clients with the utmost care and service to get all their needs met!
