Jessica Yates, Century 21 United Realty

PETERBOROUGH, ON
Age: 29

Prior to becoming a licensed agent in 2015, Jessica Yates had no illusions about what a life in real estate would entail. “I certainly knew this was not an easy venture,” she says, “but in this business you get out what you are willing to put in, and because of that I knew that I would succeed.”

Despite her early success – Yates was a Centurion Award winner in her first full year as a Realtor – Yates is now having to navigate a Peterborough market that is experiencing the same sudden slowdown that has gripped the GTA.

“It isn’t for everyone,” she says of the market’s mercurial nature, “but I certainly am good with adapting to the ups and downs. A crystal ball sure would be helpful though!”
