 Jennie Wilson Executive Assistant and Realtor

Jennie Wilson
Operations Manager and Realtor

Jennie’s real estate career began like most good things in her life; completely by chance. After practicing law for a year and a half and then having her son, Jennie decided to step away from the legal field. A lover of houses and real-estate, Jennie was the perfect fit when the Skogstad-Sodemann Team needed an additional team member. As they say, the rest was history. She learned everything she knows from Ruth Skogstad and Kristen Sodemann and is quite honored to have them as her mentors. In a little over two years of being licensed, Jennie has sold nearly five million dollars in real estate!

Coupled with a great team, Jennie has the additional benefit of being an Atlanta native. She grew up in Sandy Springs and attended Holy Innocents Episcopal school for 16 years. She is familiar with numerous Atlanta neighborhoods such as Riverside, Garden Hills, North Buckhead, Brookhaven, Ashford Park, Meadowbrook, Starlight Hills, Leafmore Hills, Derby Hills, and Pine Hills only to name a few. She has also sold in the northern suburb of John’s Creek. She knows the ins and outs of Atlanta schools, public and private, as she was an attorney for the Ga Department of Education. But most important, Jennie is there for her clients. Whether it be meeting vendors or drafting offers, she is there to help in anyway possible.

Jennie has 4 year-old boy named Colin who also attends Holy Innocents Episcopal School and two mischievous dogs named Napa and Arthur. She and her husband are members of Cherokee Town and County Club and reside in Derby Hills. Jennie enjoys shopping, home decorating and enjoying time with her family and friends.
