Having traded in Northern Ireland for the Southern US seven years ago, Jessica Houghton knows what it’s like to make a big move. Her exceptional ability to relate to her clients is just one of the many reasons she’s one of the most distinguished agents in Atlanta.
While earning a B.S. from Queens University Belfast, Jessica began working for a property developer in Northern Ireland. Here, she was introduced to real estate through the lens of residential constructions and developed an interest in the home buying process. After making the move to Atlanta, she decided to become a real estate agent and immediately fell in love with serving her clients—something she’s been doing for the past seven years.
Driven and competitive, Jessica’s attitude allows her to thrive in the up-and-coming Atlanta market. A fierce advocate for her clients, she is determined to get them the best deals using her comprehensive knowledge of the area and sharp negotiation skills.
At the same time, Jessica exudes warmth. Endlessly caring, responsive, and approachable, clients are attracted to her compassion and integrity.
Organized and detail-oriented, she is a reliable resource who is always willing to walk her clients through any processes and assuage any concerns that may arise.
With this winning combination, it’s no surprise that Jessica has been recognized by several prestigious organizations and publications. In addition to being named to Realtor Magazine’s class of 30 Under 30 in 2018, she also fell within the top 5% of Atlanta Realtors the same year.
Though she loves the real estate in the area, her passion for Atlanta spans far beyond its gorgeous homes. Jessica loves introducing people to the thriving music and art scenes as well as hot new restaurants. However, despite jumping feet first into Atlanta’s culture, she hasn’t forgotten her Irish roots—she is a founding member (and the acting president) of the nonprofit Irish Network Atlanta, an organization that allows Irish-born and Irish Americans to connect and network.
In her free time, you can find Jessica spending time with her husband Kedron, son Rowan, and two rescue dogs, Fiddy &Winnie. She also enjoys staying active, taking spin classes at Vibe Ride and exercising on the Beltline.
Jessica Peltier is a southerner through-and-through. Though she grew up in North Carolina, after graduating magna cum laude from NC State University, she made the move to Atlanta, where she has been living ever since.
After college, Jessica began working in medical consulting, which required extensive traveling. In 2014, she decided she wanted to settle down and got into real estate. Her consulting experience, as well as her various leadership positions in college, made her a natural. Her combination of sales and marketing prowess earned her the prestigious Rookie of the Year title after less than 12 months in the business and has made her one of Atlanta’s fastest-rising stars.
Though she has an impressive amount of experience under her belt, it’s Jessica’s attitude that truly sets her above the rest. Ambitious and dedicated, Jessica eagerly embraces each challenge that comes her way and thrives in Atlanta’s competitive, high-pressure environment. This mindset has won her numerous accolades, including being
recognized as a Top Producer with the Atlanta Realtors Association and ranking within the top 10% of Atlanta realtors in 2018.
What she loves even more, though, is the people she gets to meet and help. Building each relationship on a foundation of trust and positivity, Jessica makes sure that each client feels confident in their decisions and set up for success throughout the process. This approach makes her a wonderful advocate for first-time homebuyers and seasoned buyers and sellers alike.
Jessica is also a great asset for those relocating to Atlanta. Passionate about the area, she is always willing to share her recommendations regarding its excellent restaurant scene and outdoor activities. Jessica has an impact on everyone she works with, evident by her long list of repeat clients.
Jessica’s hobbies include playing tennis (even acting as the captain of her women’s ALTA team), taking spin classes, and spending time on Lake Lanier and the Beltline with her husband Andrew and Goldendoodle Milli.
