Jeff Jensen

Jeff is a 3rd generation native of Tacoma/Pierce County. Growing up in the North End, Jeff attended St. Patrick’s Catholic School and Bellermine Preparatory High School. He graduated from The University of Puget Sound, a small Liberal Arts college, in the spring of 1988 with a Bachelor’s degree in English and a minor in Business. His work ethic began at age 10 as a paper boy delivering daily papers to 84 customers. Managing a customer base, going door to door collecting monthly subscription fees and dealing with angry customers was part of his early training. Until his first Post Graduate job, Jensen had jobs selling cars, driving limousines, selling Christmas trees, working maintenance at a tennis club, filing in a law office and even working in a funeral home as a night attendant!

Prior to Real Estate, Jeff worked for the Tacoma/Pierce County Chamber of Commerce in the Visitors and Convention Bureau. He traveled around the United States and promoted Tacoma/Pierce County as a destination location for Associations and Meeting planners to hold their annual conventions. His depth of knowledge for the area and love for the Northwest was profound and convincing, earning him a long list of booked business for the region. After leaving the V&CB, Jensen started selling in the office furniture industry joining a market leader for over three years doing space planning, design and sales. He was the sales manager for the Tacoma branch of a multimillion dollar office furniture dealer. He was comfortable calling on facilities managers, purchasing managers and executives of companies at all levels. His confidence and success made him consistently a stand-out within the company and industry winning trips and awards each year.

Jeff has two teenage daughters and lives in the North End of Tacoma in a fantastic mid-century modern residence. His passions include travel, boating, golfing, exercise and entertaining. Jeff is active in numerous charity and civic organizations throughout Pierce County and San Diego County, including the Chamber of Commerce. Both of Jeff’s children attend Catholic schools where he serves on various committees therein. His passion for physical fitness is exemplified by his 6 day a week workout schedule, disciplined nutrition and general overall commitment to wellness.

Tacoma Modern Homes

This port city, nicknamed the City of Destiny, is the third largest in the state, bowing only to Seattle and Spokane. It’s the seat for expansive Pierce County and was once a blue-collar timber town. Over the past decades, Tacoma has quietly morphed into one of the most livable cities in Puget Sound with up-close views of Mount Rainier, deep roots in glass art (it’s the hometown of renowned artist Dale Chihuly), and an increasingly modern-industrial downtown core. Buildings of note include LeMay America’s Car Museum, an impressive collection of automobiles housed inside a gleaming structure; the Museum of Glass, with its 90-foot-tall hot shop cone; the Tacoma Art Museum, an industrial-inspired building clad in stainless steel skin; and the unmistakable Tacoma Dome. Elsewhere, preserved theaters and historic landmarks like 1911’s Union Station honor the city’s past. The mix of new development and restored relics has led to an interesting blend in terms of residences. It’s not unusual to find mid-century modern properties close to Craftsman homes, turn-of-the-century Victorians, and contemporary buildings. Across Commencement Bay, Browns Point residents enjoy the attractions and amenities of nearby Federal Way with waterfront views and marinas. To the west, across the water from Fox Island, University Place is a suburb with beautiful scenery and one of the world’s finest golf courses, Chambers Bay, site of the 2015 U.S. Open. Farther south on the shores of Puget Sound, Steilacoom was the first incorporated town in Washington with origins dating back to the Oregon Trail frontier era. History buffs can see some of the oldest homes in the state here as well as historic landmarks and vintage storefronts.
