Broker Spotlight Introduces Jen Pedersen with Mesa West Real Estate

May 9, 2015
Meet Jen Pedersen with Mesa West Real Estate.

A native of Southern Minnesota (go ahead, ask me to say "Boat" or "You Bet!") I attended South Dakota State University where I obtained my BS in Sociology with a minor in Economics and I continued on at SDSU while working fulltime to obtain my MS in Industrial Management.  I met my husband, Jim, after college when we both happened to be on campus one day.  We moved to Grand Junction to pursue careers in 2001 and are ever-so-grateful for our move!


We waited a bit to start our family, focusing on careers - for Jim, in Banking, and for me, in the Title Industry, the construction industry, then real estate.  One of those little-known-facts . . . we owned a few Subway Restaurants located outside of GJ Quick read more or view full article in the early 00s as well.  Yes, I am a corporate-trained "Sandwich Artist" and am certified to make TCBY ice cream cakes!

We were so excited to welcome our first two daughters in 2008 - twins (not identical) born on Leap Year!  #3 Daughter followed in 2010 and #4 in 2013 on April Fools Day.  We love having a group of little individuals running about!  While our days and nights are often very crazy with the schedules of little people, we wouldn't have it any other way.

I am a huge advocate for early detection and research about breast cancer - with no familial history of breast cancer, in December 2013 at the age of 38 I was diagnosed with stage 1A breast cancer - last year was spent adjusting to life following a double mastectomy, chemo and radiation - my ever-supportive husband, my family and friends, and my work in real estate helped us stay focused on the future (I never stopped working throughout my diagnosis, treatment and recovery).  I'm proud to now be half-way through reconstruction.  While my hair isn't quite what it used to be . . . hey, I have hair!

The entire 10 years I've been a realtor has been spent associated with this Metro Brokers Grand Junction group.  Such an approachable and willing group I have never found in any business or career.  I appreciate those with whom I am affiliated at Metro Brokers, and am proud to be a Realtor in the Grand Valley.
