Meet Eric Jensen
Hi, My name is Eric L Jensen. I am a third generation REALTOR® in the Treasure Valley. That’s right; I was born and raised in the community in which I serve. I spent most of my childhood in West Boise and Meridian; I remember when you could walk across a two lane Eagle Road. I attended Frontier Elementary, Lowell Scott Middle School, Centennial High School, Boise State University, and Pioneer Real Estate School.
I suffer from “middle child syndrome” being the fourth of seven. I am always looking for ways to stand out in a crowd, I like to prove myself to others, and I am a natural born peacemaker. I currently reside in Meridian with my wife, Mary, my daughter, Loren, and my sons, Logan and Kellen. We love everything about the Treasure Valley, especially the many family- friendly outdoor activities it has to offer.
I have literally been in the real estate business my entire life. From helping my Grandmother rehab properties as a teenager to previewing homes with my dad on a regular basis – it was all just part of my childhood. I became a licensed real estate agent and joined the National Association of REALTORS® in 1998 at the age of 21. I have received my Accredited Buyers Representative designation (ABR), The National Association of REALTORS® e-PRO designation, am a Graduate of the REALTORS® Institute (GRI), and received my brokers license in 2009. In the current state of the market I have also continued to educate myself and recently received the Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource designation (SFR) from the National Association of REALTORS®.
In 2003 I was chosen as one of 10 up and coming REALTORS® in the state of Idaho to attend the Idaho REALTORS® Leadership Academy. The information and contacts that I made there aided me in becoming more involved with the Ada County Association of REALTORS®. I serve on the Intermountain Multiple Listing Service Board as the Vice President and on the New Technology Committee. I mention this because I believe that it is crucial to have a solid reputation among colleagues and each of these associations have enabled me to work closely with my peers.
In my spare time I love to hike, bike, spend time in the outdoors, and with my family.
