Jewel Pugh

Broker Associate, REALTOR®

I was born in North Georgia but spent most of life in Southern California, where I graduated high school and college. My degree in communications/advertising and journalism was earned as a young mother with two small children.

I have had the opportunity to work with many talented people throughout my career in the corporate world. I spent over 10 years in educational publishing in sales, management, training and author management, which has given me a keen understanding of what motivates people. Using creative methods to understand client needs has always been a key component of delivering top notch service. Most recently, I have worked extensively in the hospitality industry creating corporate programs and events that make lasting memories for the participants, which is very similar to searching for the perfect family home. Seeing others fulfill their dreams remains a motivating factor in my career. I have had a real estate license for over 15 years. In 2004 my husband and I were victims of Hurricane Ivan while living on the coast of the Panhandle of Florida, and as a result we relocated to Brandon and built a home on Ross Barnett Reservoir in the beautiful development of Palisades. In 2016 I acquired my Real Estate Broker’s license and continued my designation as a Realtor.

I have worked with many companies and individuals helping them transition into new communities and environments. Since I have lived in over 10 states, including Hawaii and Sydney, Australia, I have a broad understanding of how exciting, daunting and disruptive moving is to a family. Every time I meet with clients contemplating a move, I use my deep understanding of these experiences to consult with them. My specialty is working with individuals who need help searching for and purchasing “just the right home”, whether that is a first home or a retirement dream home. Rankin, Hinds and Madison counties are my specialty. My love for the industry has led me to some wonderful places and allowed me to meet even more wonderful people. I look forward to assisting new clients with this important and life changing experience.
