“When I first started renovating historic homes in 2006, I became aware of the care and pride that the original builders had taken in their work. Quality construction materials, architectural details and thoughtful design are all part of those wonderful old Richmond homes I grew up around and then helped bring back to life. Today, as a builder, my vision is to create new homes with the same level of craftsmanship as their vintage counterparts.” -- Jay McGee, founder of JLM Custom Homes

I have been active in the real estate business for over thirty years. In 1996 I was the recipient of the Adrien Bendheim award for the Richmond Association of Realtors, which acknowledges the Outstanding Realtor of the Year. For the last twenty-five or more years my production levels have qualified me for the RAR's Distinguished Achiever levels, and one year made the top-ten list of REALTORS in the RAR in production. Having been active in the residential real estate business since 1979, I enjoy excellent working relationships within the real estate community.
I have been a student at Virginia Commonwealth University, the local university, for over twenty years taking one course each semester. The courses in Architectural History are of particular interest to me. I have completed all of the graduate courses in Architectural History and Urban Design and Planning to fulfill the requirements for the Certificate in Preservation that is offered by VCU. In June of 2011 I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Art History from VCU and my original undergraduate degree is a B. S. in Business Administration from Bryant University in Rhode Island.
My husband is a retired professor of American Literature at the university and we have four grown children and nine grandchildren. Having grown up on the east end of Long Island, going to college in Providence, Rhode Island, and living in Chicago and upstate New York before coming to Virginia, I developed a great appreciation for architecture and urban living.
I moved to Richmond in 1966 and have read many books on Richmond history and culture. Studying Richmond’s rich architecture is an avocation of mine. I particularly enjoy showing Richmond to newcomers and sharing my knowledge of local history and lore. I enjoy my work and career immensely, and continue to grow and change with the industry. Long and Foster provides a great network of colleagues, technology, and marketing opportunities and I have enjoyed working with Long and Foster for the last sixteen years.

Jolanda planted her roots in Richmond in 1999 and is always excited to share her enthusiasm for the city that she now calls home. Having graduated from the University of Montenegro in Europe with a degree in graphic arts, Jolanda has always held a strong appreciation for design and architecture. That appreciation along with Jolanda’s long standing passion for helping people has led her to a very successful career in real estate. As an agent with Long & Foster, Jolanda consistently performs at a recognition club level. Prior to joining Long & Foster, Jolanda worked several years as a graphic designer followed by a career as an advertising project manager. It was largely through that experience that she learned her softhearted consultative approach and her strong negotiating skills would translate well to other areas of interest. As a real estate agent Jolanda’s unique background has proven to be extremely valuable for her clients and even her co-workers as they often rely on her artistic nature and spatial understanding to visualize the best potential of each home. Jolanda works out of Long & Foster’s Strawberry Street office in Richmond’s trendy Fan District. She specifically chose this location because it had a small boutique feel and gave her a more personalized sense of client service. When asked if that atmosphere has helped to add to her success Jolanda answered with the following….. “Real estate isn’t just about homes it’s about people. I’ve been successful because I treat people the same way I’d want to be treated. It’s important to me that I take the time to really get to know each of my clients in order to truly understand what’s going to fill their specific needs. This is especially critical when you’re working with people who are relocating from other cities and don’t have a lot of time to spend researching every neighborhood to find the perfect home. By taking a little time up front we always have a better chance of finding the best fit in the shortest amount of time.” Jolanda and her husband, Mark, currently live in a beautifully refurbished home in Richmond’s charming Byrd Park neighborhood. As an active member of her community, Jolanda volunteers her time with the Byrd Park Civic League where she is currently the Vice President.
