Jennie Marcotte


Jennie began her real estate career in 1982 as an associate broker for a medium sized firm in the highly competitive Denver Area market. Prospering in that trial by fire environment, she was able to take a five year partial break in 1990 to devote herself to nurturing her son. In 1995 she resumed her full time professional career as associate broker with a large firm operating in the burgeoning Roaring Fork River Valley and adjacent Colorado River Valley market. In 2003 Jennie founded Free Byrd.
