About Jennifer Chapman

Jennifer Chapman and her husband Michael are long-term Tallahassee residents who are well known throughout the community. Jennifer ran a health care contract business for 12 yrs and Michael has been the jeweler at The Gem Collection since 1998. Jennifer's business involved extensive travel throughout Tallahassee and the surrounding counties over the years. She worked in homes, daycares, hospitals, schools and nursing homes. Not surprisingly, she came to know virtually every nook and cranny that surrounds us, inside and out. Jennifer also founded and serves as Chief Executive Officer for Boxer Aid & Rescue Coalition, Inc., a non-profit 501©3, all volunteer charitable organization that rescues and rehabilitates dogs from shelters. Founded in 2004, the organization has rescued thousands of dogs. As CEO, Jennifer has been involved in all aspects of running the organization, which, like most small non-profits, relies heavily on donations obtained through effective marketing.

The Chapmans moved from Kansas City to Tallahassee in 1998 to attend graduate school at Florida State University. They were captivated by the live oaks, gulf beaches and winters without snow and ice and never left. While still in their early 20's, the Chapmans bought their first house. As inexperienced home buyers with no one to represent them, the experience was poor. As the years passed, Jennifer's friends, family and acquaintances related similar negative things about their buying and selling experiences. It was this that made Jennifer pursue a career in real estate. She never desired to be a salesperson, but rather to protect buyers and sellers and to help them reach their real estate goals. Any of Jennifer's clients will tell you she has done exactly that. Jennifer maintains an open door policy for anyone who is interested in buying or selling or just has questions about the process or how to get started. She has cultivated relationships with the best home inspectors, contractors, roofers, flooring professionals, painters, etc. so that she has a whole team of people willing to assist you. The Chapmans themselves have done extensive, top-to-bottom renovations on all their homes and Jennifer has served as a judge for the Tallahassee Parade of Homes.

Jennifer Chapman holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and a Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Florida State University. She is a member of the Tallahassee Board of Realtors, the Florida Realtors Association and the National Association of Realtors. Jennifer and Michael are avid Seminoles football fans, kayakers, beach goers, hikers and accomplished amateur nature photographers. They especially enjoy hanging out at home in their PJ's with their two rescued boxer dogs, MayMae and Violet, their little mutt Mr. Bill, and their horses, Nehi and Gia.
