Every community has a REALTOR ® like Jeff Jones. In Cookeville, it is Jeff Jones.
My involvement with the local building, construction and development industry started when I was 10 years old through my dad’s excavation and trucking business and I’ve not slowed down since. I formally entered the real estate business in 1989 and know the business inside out. I’ve built spec homes, developed subdivisions, been both buyer and seller, listed and sold property as an agent and run American Way Real Estate, one of the largest firms in the mid-state area.
I believe in taking an active part in my industry. I served for on the board of directors for the Upper Cumberland Association of REALTORS® for approximately 15 years in every position on that board from director to President and past President. I also sat on the Tennessee Association of REALTORS® board of directors for 2 two-year terms as well as 1 term as a director for the National Association of REALTORS®.
Another belief I share is you get by giving. This fuels my strong desire to work on community projects. I worked with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life for 12 years, serving as community event chair twice. I have also served on the Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce board of directors and executive committee. My family and I are members of Washington Avenue Baptist Church where I serve on the building and grounds committee as well as being an usher.
I’m married to my best friend who also works with me here at American Way. Stephanie is the former City of Cookeville Finance Director and was the VP of Ancillary Services at Cookeville Regional Medical Center before diving into the real estate world. We have 2 beautiful daughters. One’s a nurse and the other is a physical therapist. I jokingly say I have one daughter that can keep me medicated and one that can keep me limber in my old age. We also have a 2 year old grandson that is the light of our lives.
You don’t have a lot of down time when you’re in the real estate business, but when we’re not working we enjoy spending time on our farm…check out our Facebook pages to see Stephanie on a tractor raking hay! LOL
The Jones team would love to help you find your new home in the Upper Cumberland.
