When Jen and her Husband, Josh, purchased their home from Tammy it sparked a conversation about becoming involved in real estate. She is currently a licensed Buyer’s Agent on our team.

As a lifelong resident of Stark County, Wendy’s love of real estate started at a very young age. While still in grade school, she would help her father at his Uniontown real estate brokerage by cleaning, filing, writing new listings and sales on the board, going to open houses and auctions, and often riding along to the board of realtors to pick up the new MLS catalog every two weeks and then excitedly study each page and listing carefully on the drive home. Wendy is a third generation realtor following in her grandfather, father’s, uncles’ and cousins’ footsteps.
Mom to two boys, Chayce and Tre’, she hopes to one day to see one or both of her boys carry on the family tradition. Until then, she loves to watch them enjoy their many activities at school (Wendy’s alma mater), as well as soccer, Taekwondo (Chayce is a black belt), chess club, art classes (Tre’s favorite), piano lessons, indoor fort building, hiking and playing with the family dog, Violet, two cats, Thomasina and Jinx, and two fish, Thomas and James (yes, there is Thomas the Train theme thanks to Tre’). When not helping clients before, during and after the home buying experience, or taking her boys to their many activities, Wendy enjoys time with family and friends (most of which share friendships of 40+ years), hiking, playing cards, taking trips to museums, zoos and parks with her boys, attending concerts and plays, gardening, home improvement projects and travel.
Wendy has a dual degree in Business Management and Sales Marketing with 30+ years in retail management and private business ownership and has been a licensed real estate agent with Cutler Real Estate since 2013. During her first year selling real estate, Wendy had the distinction of being awarded the Ohio Association of Realtors Presidents Club, an honor held by less than 3% of Ohio realtors. Wendy’s lifelong experience, knowledge of the surrounding counties and desire to help each client find the home that best suits their individual needs makes her uniquely qualified to help you find your next home!
