Meet Realtor Mandy McMurtrie

Her many connections to the community are impressive. She has gained the trust of many parents as a elementary teacher at Queen’s. She wants to take that dedication to Jackson families to the next level and help others with the sale and purchase of their largest asset, their home. Mandy has been a great addition to our team already, and we are excited to see her make the commitment to a full time career in real estate.

“I am a full time Realtor for Production Realty in Jackson, MI.  The support from the staff and training opportunities give me the ability and knowledge to assist Buyers and Sellers with their needs.  My communication, organization and dedication help me be the best Realtor I can be.

Growing up in Spring Arbor, graduating from Spring Arbor University and raising my family in Parma give me strong roots in the Jackson and surrounding areas.

I enjoyed many years teaching second grade and kindergarten at Fatima and Queen’s in the Jackson, MI area.  During that time, my husband and I were blessed with 4 beautiful children. As much as I loved teaching, I felt like it was time for a change. The excitement and freedom that I saw in a Realtor friend of mine drew me to the career of Real Estate.

I started off as a Buyers Agent and now I am a full time Realtor for Production Realty. “
