Jennifer Kirby


Premier Real Estate of the Sandhills

Jennifer Kirby is a native of Pinehurst who, along with her husband, Matt, returned to the Sandhills area a few years after college. She got her real estate license in 2005, because Matt and his brothers had just started Kirby Construction Group in Southern Pines, and they quickly realized it would make sense to list their spec homes themselves. Although she'd never intended to pursue a career in real estate (she was a journalism major!), it turned out to be a lot of fun and a great fit.

Jenn and Matt bought their first investment property, a single-family rental, in 2006 and have been expanding and diversifying their real estate portfolio ever since, with experience in long-term and vacation rentals, spec and custom home construction and sales, and fixer-uppers. Jenn loves helping other investors – newbies as well as those more seasoned – understand the local market, evaluate opportunities, and move forward on properties that align with their goals.

In addition to real estate, Jenn’s favorite obsessions include reading, running, thrifting, traveling, and her people, especially her three young children. She volunteers with the kids’ school and the family’s church as much as possible. 

She also owns a couple of other businesses: one through which she’s actively engaged in recruiting, training, and leading an international team of independent consultants representing a premium skincare brand; and another, an online shop for typography prints and vintage goods, which taught her everything she knows about establishing systems and processes and which now mostly runs itself. 

She's a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill.
