What does being the lead singer and guitar player in a female punk band have in common with starting a real estate company in the middle of a recession? Not many people can answer that question. But when you ask Jenelle Isaacson, founder, and CEO of Living Room Realty, there’s no hesitation; where most would see a chasm, she sees a bridge.

Founded in 2009, Living Room Realty offers residential, commercial and property management services. Living Room ranks in the top 15 real estate companies in Oregon, with more than 90 affiliated broker-agents. For Jenelle, it’s all been about finding a voice—the singular and irrepressible expression of self. Whether it’s business or music, “It’s important to know what your voice is. If it’s true, it will resonate.”
