Jalen joined SVN | Wood Properties as intern in September 2022. Originally from Atlanta, Jalen is a student at UT majoring in sports management and therapeutic recreation. Jalen’s interest in real estate spurs from his Jamaican heritage. When he visits his family that still lives there, he is troubled by the poverty and how that plays itself out in the country’s real estate. He wants to be a developer there and be a force for good. This strongly aligns with our company’s “why”: We believe real estate can be used to create value in and for people and communities. His passion for helping others will surely contribute to our company’s success.
