Get to know Jennifer Hartwick
I was born in Mesa, Arizona but have called Mid-Missouri home for the past 20 years. My husband and I have lived in Ashland, Centralia and Columbia so I'm personally familiar with our surrounding towns. I received my BS from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona.
I live outside of Columbia on 10 acres with my husband, two daughters, son and a wandering lab named Jessie. I am a member/vounteer with Two Mile Prarie Elementary School PTA, the Lange Middle School PTSA, Battle High School Band Boosters and the Shaw-Harg 4H Club.
We are also the proud owners of a Century farm located outside the Southern Illinois town of St. Francisville.
I specialize in Residential and Rural Properties in Columbia and Northern Boone County.
