Jess Houser



Jess is just a small-town girl, livin’ in RVA…


Growing up in the small town of Stuarts Draft, VA, between Waynesboro and Staunton, Jess spent most of her teen years living on a farm.  Dreaming more of a penthouse view than the Green Acres life, Jess had her sights on the city at a very young age.


After graduating from high school, she moved to Bristol, TN where she earned a degree in behavioral science and elementary education. In 2001, her love affair with Richmond began with her grad school time here, and after moving back to Staunton, visiting RVA often for a decade. Jess surrendered to the siren call and resumed her Richmond life in 2016.

After teaching for over twenty years, she switched careers and jumped into real estate. She can often be found at neighborhood eateries and dives enjoying food, libations, and conversation. Traveling, reading, cooking and entertaining, and enjoying the arts are among some of her favorite things. She enjoys the time she spends with her partner Ron and her family and friends.
