Dana Browning -­ Executive Assistant

Dana Browning began her career in real estate in 2009 as a leasing assistant with a local real estate brokerage and property management firm. She quickly rose through the ranks, becoming the office manager, where she handled all the bookkeeping and payroll, as well as assisted the broker with building checklists and systems. After being promoted to the Director of Property Management & Maintenance, she managed a small team and was directly responsible for everything from budgetary management to owner disbursements and acquisitions.

Dana joined the JGA team in 2016 and has a deep fondness for supporting the team and setting them up for success. There are few things in life she loves more than turning clients into raving fans!

Dana is an Idaho native and loves spending time in her backyard with friends and family, sitting around the fire pit or gardening with her husband, Austin, and their "tiny human", Quinn.

Poppy a.k.a. Pop Star - Office Dog

Poppy's main job around the office is sleeping. It's a tough gig, and Poppy has risen to the occasion. Preferring to be no further than one foot from Jill at all times, Poppy usually spends the day following Jill around, and hanging out with Aaron and Kelsey when Jill leaves the office. Poppy has a couple beds in Jill's office and usually finds the most awkward position possible to relax in while Jill is calling the database to find buyers for our listings.

Poppy was adopted from the Humane Society and has developed a relationship with the team and clients. It took some of us a little longer to win her over than others. While she has a huge heart, she is sometimes a little slow to warm up to strangers so we have a bag of treats by the front door for clients to convince her they are alright after all!

When not in the office, Poppy enjoys going to the dog park with Jill, going on runs in the beautiful Boise foothills, and staying as close to Jill as possible. Did I mention she loves Jill? When you come to the office be sure and grab a treat to win Poppy over!
