The Jennifer Ciulla Group
RE/MAX Fine Properties
Helping clients find homes they love is Jennifer Ciulla’s favorite part of the job. Ciulla, team leader of The Jennifer Ciulla Group at RE/MAX Fine Properties, has been in real estate for 23 years. She started out as a receptionist for a national multifamily property management firm and worked her way up to property manager. At the time, she was the youngest person in that role.
Becoming licensed to sell residential real estate seemed like the natural next step in her career. Based on Ciulla’s track record, it was clearly the right move.
Assisting everyone from leasees to luxury buyers and sellers, Ciulla and her team experienced 100 percent year-over-year growth in 2019, closing a little more than $30 million in volume and helping 105 families purchase and sell their homes. Moreover, she did it while transitioning from an individual producer with an assistant to forming a team with two buyer specialists. “I have always been an individual producer,” she says. “I am learning what works and what doesn’t. I want to continue to find ways to bring value to all of us as a group.” This year, the team earned chairman level at RE/MAX and Ciulla made the company’s Hall of Fame.
A luxury marketing specialist, Ciulla’s creativity in marketing, ability to stage homes (which sells them faster) and ease at guiding clients throughout the process while making it fun, have contributed to her success. What’s more, Ciulla discovered that having a team helps her balance work and family. “It has been nice to have help so that I can go on vacation with my family, along with simply spending time with them,” she says. “My assistant, Leslie, and I spent a lot of time working long hours, seven days a week, to keep up with our growth. So, I consider this a huge accomplishment.”
A member of the Houston Association of Realtors, Texas Real Estate Commission and Texas Association of Realtors, Ciulla supports Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and many other charitable organizations. Outside of work, she enjoys travel, music and fine wine.
