Jen Clover is not afraid to take on a challenge- which will serve her well as the newest addition to the CENTURY 21 Signature Real estate team.
“I love working with people. I’m a firm believer that a stranger is a person I’ve not yet met,” said Clover. “I also believe strongly that attitude is everything. Life often throws a lot at us. It’s taking those challenges and making them opportunities rather than obstacles that define who we are.”
Jen will be joining our Urbandale team and we’re excited to have her!
