Lessons from Local Leaders:

Jennifer Surlas

Shifting gears from the basketball court to the competitive landscape of real estate, Jennifer (Jen) Surlas brings the same tenacity to guiding clients through the maze of property buying and selling as she once did dodging defenders. This week, we sit down with the former collegiate and professional athlete turned real estate dynamo, who shares the secrets of her seamless transition into Angle Volkers Real Estate and Neighborhood Settlements. Surlas’s stories are a slam dunk, revealing how the principles of teamwork and a spirited entrepreneurial approach shape her success in the housing market.

Within the heart of every home transaction are the relationships formed along the way, and that’s where Jen’s expertise really shines. Our conversation takes a turn into the intimate corridors of client connections, as she stresses the importance of authenticity and compatibility in these professional partnerships. We also pull back the curtain on her off-court strategy for juggling the demands of a high-flying career with the grounding force of family and self-care, including the role of fitness in maintaining her enviable drive and focus.

As we wrap up, Jen doesn’t shy away from the tough topics that are reshaping the real estate playbook—think interest rate roller coasters and the scarcity of homes for sale, especially in affluent pockets. She kicks down the door on the realities facing buyers and sellers, and why, amid our infatuation with sleek new tech, personal touch still reigns supreme in the property game. Self-awareness in business isn’t just a buzzword; for Surlas, it’s the very foundation that elevates every interaction, every negotiation, every success. Join us for this compelling session that’s less about listings and more about life lessons from the field to the firm.
