Meet your local Tri-Cities Real Estate expert: Jessica Chen-Sargent

Jessica Chen-Sargent brings an impressive skill set to go with her drive to help you with the real estate deal you want to make. She attended one of the most prestigious high schools in Shenzhen, China, and moved to Canada on her own at the age of 17 in order to earn an engineering degree from the University of Toronto. Jessica aced her real estate licensing exam at UBC and has also been working since then in marketing and pre-sales development projects across Metro Vancouver. Having grown up in China, watching her mother manage the renovation and construction of apartment buildings, Jessica brings a unique understanding of Chinese values to her work, along with her fluency in Mandarin and Cantonese. One of her proudest achievements has been the development and delivery of the first Chinese version of the “Buyer Beware” real estate seminar.

Jessica Chen-Sargent joined with noted (now-retired) Tri-Cities realtor John Grasty in 2014 to combine their two diverse backgrounds and skill sets into a powerful combination to represent the evolution of real estate focusing on the Tri-Cities. Jessica worked closely side-by-side with John for seven years to glean from him the knowledge he gained through his real estate adventures over two decades. Jessica learned about homeowner advocacy in the Lower Mainland, particularly given John's history as the co-founder of the Coalition of Leaky Condominiums Owners (COLCO), a member of the National Advisory Council for Canadians for Properly Built Homes, and winner of the 2010 REALTORS Care® Award. As John neared closer to retirement in the last few years, he remained a close mentor to Jessica as she took the reigns in the office, before he left the real estate industry at the end of July 2021.

With this powerful combination of skills and experience, Jessica brings you real estate evolved, taking you and your real estate goals to a new level with the right tools, ethical representation, unwavering support, and her specialized knowledge and experience as a local expert in Port Moody and Coquitlam.
