For over fifteen years, Jerry’s personalized service, systematic approach and attention to detail has made Jerry a Top Producer. One of her many strengths is pricing - her listings sold far quicker (6 days on average) and for more money (99.53% of list price) than the industry average! With such an impressive start to her real estate career, Jerry has mentored numerous agents, but something you can’t always teach is passion… Jerry’s “dedicated heart” has successfully led clients to the home of their dreams.
Jerry is also very involved with the Ronald McDonald Charities since losing her six year old son to Wilm’s Tumor. Hudson, her brand new baby grandson, is the thrill of her life as are her grown children, Ashley and Garrett. She and her husband, David (a Naval Academy Graduate), feel fortunate and thrilled at all they have achieved, professionally and personally.
When Karen Trainor asked Jerry to join her as a team at McEnearney Associates, she was thrilled. This dynamic duo has a proven track record with a combined 40 years of experience. In addition, the tremendous marketing and industry knowledge that McEnearney provides completes the circle. The synergy of Jerry’s new team provides her practice and her clients the service they deserve. While she’s a busy lady, Jerry Thatcher and her team will never be too busy to help you!
