Hi! I'm Jordan.
I also go by Jordy, J, and for those closest to me, Jorgie...
Call me what you will.
I've had an interest in photography AND real estate since I was probably 10 years old. But it wasn't until 2021 that I decided to combine the two and make a career out of it. Oh no no, there was no skipping past all of the "trial and error" of your early twenties here.
I worked at a daycare, a landscaping company, was a farmhand for a year -- and that was all throughout college. When I graduated with my associate's degree in marketing, I was working at a radio station as a sales and promotions assistant. Keep scrolling to see just how dedicated I was to that job.
Once I'd had my fun at the radio station, I decided to do something that was a bit more lucrative. I was hired on as the marketing coordinator for a franchisee of Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers.
I was heavily involved in the community, working with schools and nonprofits to share the company's philanthropic efforts across Nebraska. I also had the opportunity to design the local graphics included in a few of our restaurants!
After almost 3 years, I decided it was time to make the move from Lincoln to Omaha, which was a pretty big deal for someone who grew up in a town of 600 people.
Yep. That's me in the middle.
At this point, I was looking to do the sort of work I was good at and also piqued my interest - enter, the real estate world. I was really good at helping others do their jobs well, which made me a prime candidate for an administrative assistant position with the top real estate team in the state.
Maybe you've heard of them?
My role with the Briley Team opened my eyes to the need for real estate photography
(cue the 'aha' moment). It gave me insider knowledge to see firsthand what was important to super successful agents with listings to sell. That's right, I was the one to order and upload the photos used to market all of the team's listings. I saw the opportunities that it presented and decided to take matters into my own hands. It was, after all, the prime excuse to take my photography skills and make them profitable.
So here we are, Humble Bee Media. Thanks for stopping by.
