Committed to my Clients
If you said real estate was part of my DNA, you wouldn’t be wrong. I grew up watching my mother build a successful real estate business in North Phoenix. As a child, I visited family in Moon Valley and loved the unique homes and tight-knit community, and always envisioned myself living in the community. I obtained my real estate license while I went to ASU and graduated with a communications and psychology degree, both of which have come in handy to market, sell, and develop relationships with my clients. I have been a full-time Realtor since 2004 and a Broker since 2007. My experience as a broker included managing 3 branch offices and overseeing 500+ transactions.
Now the co-founder of Locality Homes’ Moon Valley office, I will continue to put my years of marketing and negotiation experience to work for home sellers and buyers in the Moon Valley, Central Phoenix and North Phoenix areas as a top real estate agent in Phoenix AZ. I received industry recognition including being named one of REALTOR Magazine's "30 Under 30" Realtors nationwide in 2012, as well as ranking in the Top 100 Individual Agents in RealTrend's 2017 and 2018 rankings. For the past 6 years, I received the "Pro of the Year" award as #1 top-producing agent at my office before launching Locality Homes.
Committed to my Community
While I attended ASU, I had the opportunity to volunteer at Child Crisis Arizona and I credit the experience as life changing. Child Crisis Arizona provides an emergency shelter for children in DCS custody or in a crisis situation, as well as foster licensing and community programs designed to strengthen families. Over the last 15 years, I have supported them through donations, holiday toy drives and various fundraising events.
I am now the mom of two girls and a former foster parent, and keeping kids safe continues to be a priority of mine when it comes to supporting charities. I also serve on Arizona Supreme Court’s Foster Care Review Board, reviewing foster care files and making recommendations to the Court for children in out-of-home placement through the Department of Child Safety. My daughter and I are members of National Charity League - Moon Valley Chapter, giving us the opportunity to support many local nonprofits through volunteer hours and donations.
To me, real estate and giving back to the local community go hand-in-hand as over the years I’ve donated a portion of every commission to various local charities. The urge to create a business with built-in purpose is how the idea for Locality Homes came to fruition, to combine my local community expertise with my passion for giving back: Local Real Estate. Community Driven.
In addition to Child Crisis Arizona, my other favorite charities are listed below. I am always looking for ways to support local schools by sponsoring sports, band, and the arts whenever possible. If you are interested in getting involved, please get in touch!

I received my bachelor’s degree from Northern Arizona University in May of 2006, at which time I joined the Sun State Builders team as Assistant to the Sales Manager. It wasn’t long before I transitioned to Production as a Project Coordinator for ground-up buildings and then as a Project Engineer focusing on Tenant Improvements. I earned my Real Estate License in 2011. I continued as a Commercial Property Manager until leaving the industry to be home with my daughter in 2014. As a cancer survivor, I am an active contributor to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I have represented them as an Honored Hero, through Team in Training, Light the Night, and now I serve on the LLS Advocacy Team.
My daughter and I are members of the Arizona Cactus-Pine Girl Scouts. I serve on the Board of Stepping Stones Preschool and hold the 2020-2021 position of Secretary. On Thursday and Friday nights you can find me on the soccer field coaching a 4-year-old team with a local league. In 2020 I joined the Locality team as a Transaction Coordinator and will ensure that everything moves smoothly from listing to appointment close.

Jenna Boles' Local Favorites
I came to Arizona by way of Minnesota in 2014 to be closer to family, and skip out on traditional winters. We fell in love with the Moon Valley / North Phoenix area because it’s a great place to raise a family with a strong sense of community, and unique homes! My "party of five" family can be found hiking, at Moon Valley Park, smoking various meats, cooking, and road-tripping all over the Southwest.
I have 13+ year's experience in eCommerce, Marketing, and Brand Management, but my true passion is residential real estate; buying, selling, styling, and designing. I joined Locality in 2020 to put my marketing experience to work in local real estate, and join a business that aligns with my own personal values. I love that each one of us believes we’re responsible for making our local community a better place to live!

Real Estate Agent
I moved to Arizona in 1984 from New Jersey. I have four children and seven grandchildren. My family is the most important aspect in my life. I spent many evenings coaching my children’s teams and stayed active playing softball. In 1990 I opened my own printing business, and serviced many corporate and non-profit clients over the years, including Microsoft and Best Western. I also worked with a range of local small businesses, school districts, and municipalities. In 1994 I became a licensed Realtor focusing on helping my family, friends & clients find homes in the North Valley. I love Arizona and have a wealth of experience to share with prospective clients looking for a home in the beautiful North Valley.
