Joy Baresel Jarred Kopepasah As to what she finds most satisfying about her work, Stetson said it’s the satisfaction of providing expert service to her clients. “I think I gravitated towards Engel & Volkers because of the high level of service,” she said. “I see clients maybe not getting the area of specialized expertise (from other companies) that we offer. A couple of years ago, in wanting to go into my own business or wanting ownership in something, I wanted to make the client number one — and that’s something we do here.” In addition to Stetson, other licensed partners are Joy Baresel and Jarred Kopepasah, who is a high-touch real estate professional known for his extensive market knowledge and devotion to his clients. Stetson said there’s something available in the Edmond market for clients of all family sizes and lifestyles. “For as much as the stereotype is about younger people preferring to rent an apartment over investing in property, we find that’s not the case, especially here in Oklahoma, where the cost of living is so reasonable, we have such affordable housing, and there’s plenty for them to do,” she said. “According to research from the National Association of Realtors, we’re in one of the most popular areas for the millennials.” Stetson is a Certified Relocation Specialist, a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), and she holds a CLHMS Million Dollar Guild Designation. Additionally, she is a member of the National Association of Realtors and Edmond Board of Realtors. In 2019, she was honored as one of the 10 Best Real Estate Agents in Oklahoma through the American Institute of Real Estate Agents. Further, she volunteers for community partners that speak to her heart, including the MAPS 3 Health & Wellness Center and Healthy Living Inc., for which, she serves as a board chair for the personnel committee. Engel & Volkers’ managing broker is Derek Davis and the Edmond branch broker is Jennifer Duncan. “I think we’re really going to be changing the landscape in the Sherry Stetson area, not only for buyers, but also for advisers, bringing them to a different level than what we sometimes see,” she said. The Edmond branch is located at 102 S. Broadway. For more information, contact Engel & Volkers at 405-888-8701. March 2020 | The Business Times 15
