Get to Know Emma Jordison:
Where are you from and what’s your family like?
I was born and raised in Des Moines and currently live in Ankeny.
My husband and I met after high school and we both graduated from Iowa State University in 2016. We have a two-year-old son named Graham and an Aussie pup named Chef. Our house is always busy with lots of climbing, laughing, and running around these days!
What are your hobbies and interests outside of real estate?
I love spending time with my family, exercising and going to parks around Ankeny with our son.
What is your background?
Before becoming a REALTOR®, I was an elementary school teacher. My husband and I also owned investment properties which furthered my passion for real estate. As a child, I would beg my parents to go to open houses on Sundays for the fun of it!
Since becoming a REALTOR®, I feel like I’ve won the lottery being able to spend time at home with my son while also working with clients to find their perfect homes. Eight-year-old me would be thrilled to know!
I’m excited to have the opportunity to walk through one of the biggest investments in a person’s life and build relationships with my clients that transcend the transaction.
What is your favorite neighborhood in the Des Moines area?
I love everything from a cozy bungalow in Beaverdale to a modern mid-century split-level in Prairie Trail. But my favorite neighborhood is Uptown Ankeny. I love the shops on Main and the history of that part of Ankeny.
Why did you choose real estate?
Being in the education world beforehand, I am passionate about educating future homeowners about the process of buying and selling. It is an honor to be involved in one of the most important investments in my clients’ lives and while the process of buying and selling can be overwhelming, I strive to make the experience positive and enjoyable every time.
I am passionate about being a REALTOR® because a house is so much more than a home. Looking back at my husband and I’s current and previous living arrangements, every space holds sweet memories that tell a lot about us and our family. I am dedicated to helping my clients find not just their “dream house” but a special home to make their own memories in.
