Jacqueline Acevedo became a real estate agent in 2020 during the COVID pandemic. Prior to that, Jacqueline worked as an investigator for the State of New Jersey. She has always worked in roles where helping people was a priority.

Jacqueline has overcome many challenges in her life. Growing up with divorced parents was not easy for her mother to raise three children on her own. As a young woman, Jacqueline was faced with many obstacles: from living in a bad environment to being surrounded by unsupportive individuals that made her believe that her dreams were just that. The urge and desire to move ahead, help her family, and one day provide a good future for her own family was her motivation each day.

As much as she tried to avoid failure, it was inevitable. It is part of life, and it molded her into who she is today. Jacqueline’s positive attitude, determination, children, friends, and most importantly, her faith is what keeps her going. One thing she has never done is give up. If it doesn't work one way, she tries a different way until she accomplishes and reaches her goals. Jacqueline's favorite part of real estate is meeting people. Every day is a new adventure and knowing that she took part in her client’s journey, and one of their biggest decisions they will ever make in their lifetime, is an honor.

Jacqueline is different from other agents because she is herself. She doesn't try to be anyone else, and she works hard to ensure that her clients are satisfied with her services. Jacqueline wants her children to know and be confident that anything is possible. No matter their background, social class, culture, age, or failures, she hopes they carry the good family values and morals she is teaching them to make a difference as they get older and become adults, all while remaining humble and kind. In the future, Jacqueline hopes to continue growing as a real estate agent by expanding her business to other states, investing in properties of her own, and eventually starting her own team to help and guide anyone aspiring to become an entrepreneur in the real estate industry.
