Jill Giese -­ Team Leader, Pricing & Negotiations Specialist

Jill trains and leads the JGA team and is focused on getting sellers' homes sold!

In her life before real estate, she worked in marketing and communications, and as a remodeling contractor.

Jill has lived in the North End for most of the last twenty years. Other than a stint traveling in Europe and working for a dot-com in New York, she's been living and working in Boise. Her parents and siblings are all in the area and she currently lives with her cat, Riley.

She loves biking, skiing, running, camping, films, reading, gardening, and many more of the great things Boise has to offer!

Lauren Krajewski - Buyers Agent

After living in Atlanta, Seattle, Pullman, and Moscow, I chose Boise to be my home. I have fallen in love with our lifestyle, community, and the natural beauty of Idaho. I am convinced there is no better place to live! Buying a house in the Boise area was one of the most exciting and important events of my life… So much so that I am determined to help others find their home-sweet-home like I did. Give me a call or send me a text and/or email and let me help you find your Treasure Valley home!

Mackenzie VanPatten - Showing Agent

Mackenzie began working with JGA in 2016 where she held an administrative assistant position. She then graduated from Compass Honors High School in May of 2018, and soon after became licensed. She is our showing agent when she is home on school breaks from Jacksonville State University, where she is studying Business Management with a Marketing minor. Mackenzie enjoys hiking, fishing, shooting, camping, and four wheeling. She has lived in Idaho all her life so she knows what Boise has to offer!

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 Lauren and Sarah 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!
