Hello, my name is Arlene Jackson. I am originally from Washington D.C. until I moved to Annapolis Maryland where I currently live 1997. Prior to leaving the federal government in 1986, I received my first real estate license with Century 21 Catherine Barber, on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., and later worked with Century 21 J.D. Williams, in Hyattsville, Maryland. I am elated to be a part of the team and “Revolution” created by Gregory Bennett, Broker and Owner of (formerly) “Exit Bennett Realty” – and now the new and renowned “Bennett Realty Solutions, Inc.”! Gregory has pulled together all the tools, plus all the bells and whistles available in the real estate industry to provide his associates with everything they need to take where you want to go!
Over the last 25 years, my professional journey has taken me from my last federal government position in the public relations office of the Chief of Naval Operations with the Defense Department; to operating a small family owned print shop and copy center; to a housing and employment specialist with a non-profit organization; as assistant to the vice president of a large D.C. based property management company; as a manager of housing counseling and empowerment programs; as a licensed loan officer specializing in reverse mortgages; as a housing choice voucher specialist, managing half of the Section 8 voucher holders caseload for the City of Annapolis’s Housing Authority. My roots and heart has never left housing.
My education and training covers many aspects housing counseling and certifications in several areas related to housing, as well as proficiency in several reporting systems and portals used to report housing results data.
My passion is helping people and connecting people with information and resources. I am a judge with the Board of Elections (past 25 years); am a current member of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dinner Board (past 12 years), and a member of the Continental Society, Inc. I have received several awards and citations for my volunteer work in the community, and have been dubbed the “go to person” in many areas.
My motto is “Information is Power”…. Letme Empower you!
