Jennifer Wilks

Hi, I'm Jen, your local peninsula enthusiast! I was born and raised in Yorktown, Virginia and I love the area. We are so lucky to have the ocean, rivers, the world's most beautiful theme park, a rich history of America's origin, and so much more, right at our fingertips.  

Growing up near the water gave me a passion for swimming. Before I could work, I was a volunteer for my local swim team (Go Running Manta Rays!). As a teen and during my college years, I worked as a lifeguard, swim instructor, and assistant swim coach. After graduating Thomas Nelson Community College, I married my friend of 8 years and the love of my life, Mike. 

While I was in college, I thought I wanted to be a teacher, but decided that wasn’t what I was meant to do. I worked as a fragrance rep in the local PXs, then switched to working in our family’s wine shop, until my second daughter was born. At that time, I decided it was time to make my family my career, and put everything else on hold.  

Once my kids were approaching school age, I knew it was time to pursue my career. I went back to my roots of sales and customer service and decided that finding people a home to love, was the career I had always dreamed of. I realized that helping a family find a place that they love, helping them invest in their future, and helping them navigate the most important purchase of their lives, would be worth going to work every day. 

When I am not working, I love to go to Busch Gardens, the Virginia Living Museum, Yorktown Beach, and dancing at the Port Warwick Summer Concert series. I also love to shop for home décor at one of my favorite small businesses, the Lazy Daisy. After a long day, I like to snuggle on the couch with my kids, my rescue dog, or my bunny, and shed the stress I have been carrying. I can’t wait to help each and every one one of my clients find a home that they truly love, and to share all of the things I love about the peninsula, with them.
