Jennifer Gessner has been a real estate agent since 2015 and joined Rêve Realtors in 2020. A historic home specialist, Jennifer enjoys working with both buyers and sellers in neighborhoods all across the city.
With a bachelor of fine arts in painting from UNC Chapel Hill and a master of arts from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Jennifer also studied painting at the Arts Students League NYC, as well as business and French at Parsons. She was selected as a New Orleans Art Council-Artist as Entrepreneur in 2012, and her career has been focused on art, design, and architecture for years. She has worked as a freelance artist, a financial project manager for architects, architectural lighting designers and art directors, a Royal Streets art gallery manager and was commissioned to paint the interior of a Cape Cod mansion. Several years ago, she was encouraged by a realtor friend to get her real estate license, and once she made the move, she quickly became a top producer.
Known as creative, mindful, and kind, Jennifer makes the selling and buying process seamless for her clients, always putting their needs first. And as someone one who has lived in cities across the U.S., Jennifer is particularly adept at helping clients who are in the process of relocating. She also has a great eye and a knack for art direction, understanding how to stage a home to showcase its advantages.
When not working, Jennifer is passionate about gardening, design, yoga, swimming and travel. She has lived in Boston, New York City, Durham, NC, Charleston, SC, and Cape Cod, MA, and since 2012, has been happy to call New Orleans and the Marigny home.
