Milton's Monday Moment: Meet the Team!
Happy Monday Red Door family! If you have not heard of Red Door yet – you soon will! We are a group of experienced Realtors, local to the Livingston County area. Milton’s Monday Moment will be a weekly posting (on Mondays, if you hadn’t guessed) that will cover a range of real estate topics - from market trends, tips on staging your home to sell, and a “behind the scenes” here with the Red Door Realty Group. As our first post, I would like to introduce our awesome team members and help you get to know everyone a little better!
My name is Jennifer Zarenski, and I am the new Client Care Coordinator with Red Door Realty Group. I joined the team about a month ago, and love it. I recently graduated from Wayne State University with a business degree and I am a diehard Red Wings fan. I currently reside in Ann Arbor with my boyfriend.
Next is our wonderful Team Lead, Jen Petersen. Jen has been in real estate for nearly 10 years and truly works hard. She is a Michigan native and lives in Hartland with her two daughters and husband. In February of 2020, Jen created Red Door and made the move to Keller Williams Living. The Red Door Realty Group resides in Livingston County, but services all neighboring areas as well. Jen had the vision for Red Door after seeing such a door on the label of a bottle of wine, and the rest is history!
Next up is agent Angela Templeton. She recently celebrated her one-year anniversary with KW Living and has been with Red Door since the beginning. She primarily focuses on assisting buyers but has seen great success in all areas of real estate sales. Angela has the most adorable dog, and it is like another child to her. Her daughter, Lexi, is also in real estate and they enjoy working in the industry together.
Lisa Armor has over 20 years of experience in new construction and sales, and her passion is helping people buy and sell homes, new or old. She spends time as a sales agent for the Hunter's Ridge condominium development in Howell/Hartland, where Red Door Realty Group is the exclusive real estate team for the builder. Lisa performed her college internship at Disney World and it is her favorite place! Lisa loves spending time with family and friends and enjoys time spent watching her children play sports.
Dean Tengel is lovingly known as the "Mayor of Brighton", having been a resident since 1971. He is a graduate of Brighton High School and has an intimate knowledge of the local real estate market. He has served on the city’s Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals and loves giving back to the community. He has three children that were all raised in the Brighton/Howell local area and has a love for all things power sports. He is your #PowerSportsPropertyGuy!
Garrett McCraight is the newest addition to the team but is a force to be reckoned with. Garrett decided to get into real estate nearly four years ago, to "help happy and honest people buy and sell homes". We cannot say enough about how happy we are to have him on our team! He loves motorcycles (riding and working on) and his “big why” is his young daughter and family.
Finally, our Director of Operations, Penney Aiken. A graduate of Michigan State University, Penney started her real estate journey about six and a half years ago in commercial real estate and became licensed in residential real estate in 2016. She has primarily worked in the Greater Lansing area, and has been involved with over 350 real estate transactions! She and her family have relocated to Livingston County, and she found her home with Red Door Realty Group. She has two wonderful children, a supportive husband and three adorable fur babies. She is fun loving and high energy and makes sure that our team stays on our toes!
