Solas Associate Jenna Lewis


Hi Jenna! Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from, and how did you find yourself in the real estate industry?

I moved to Oklahoma in January of 2013! Wow, almost 8 years ago. So yes, I consider myself an Okie. I was always told this city has a way of grabbing you... and not letting go. Turns out, it's a little true!

When I first got into real estate, I was 20 years old. I was working as a barista at the infamous Starbucks. Loving every second of the fast-paced atmosphere, not to mention the FREE coffee! Within a couple weeks of starting at the company, I got thrown into the morning shift - "peak," as some would call it. New partners don't typically work "peak" shift. Why, you ask? Well, because it's straight chaos. In the best way of course! Taking orders and meeting SO many new people, and their orders. Remember, it's also about the coffee! Little did I know, the impact I left on a particular customer had them asking me to come in for an interview to work with their teamand sell real estate! Opportunity was knocking, and the next thing you know, I'm a licensed realtor in the state of Oklahoma! This little duckling all the way from Eugene, Oregon. I am so grateful for them. They became family, and I owe them the world in return. I can't imagine doing anything else in this life!

That’s awesome! Ok, speaking of moving to faraway places… Let’s pretend you’re going to be stranded on a desert island, and you can bring three things. What do you pick?

I’d have to say my dog, Wally Gator, dog food and water. No, but seriously, Wally Gator, Braum's frozen yogurt twists, and my mother would kill me if I didn't bring a life straw!

The life straw is very sensible! And we’re definitely on board with the Braum’s twists. On the topic of Wally Gator, one thing we definitely know about you is how much you love him! Can you tell us a little bit about your furry friend and share one of your favorite pictures?

Where do I begin?! Wally Gator is a Standard Poodle, and he’s named after my grandfather! He is the most energetic, fun loving, intelligent, ornery, cuddly little guy... Okay, he's 60 lbs of lean muscle, but he thinks he's little! You simply can't resist his animated eyes... that's an actual fact. He's truly the best friend anyone could ask for. See below for one of my favorite photos of him!

That photo is too cute! Ok, let’s finish up with a fun fact about you. What’s something most people don’t know about Jenna Lewis?

I've been skydiving three times! Once back in Oregon, and two times here in Oklahoma. If anyone is interested in going, I'm right behind you!
