BROKERAGE LESSONS FROM A PUNK ROCKER

By Living Room Realty, March 15, 2018

Our founder Jenelle Isaacson was profiled in Relator Magazine, discussing her punk rock roots, and how she uses her past experiences to direct her present.


Punk rock gave me the confidence to know I could rock anything in heels. A year after graduating from the University of Oregon, where I majored in art, I started a punk rock band called Spread Eagle with three girlfriends. It wasn’t that we loved punk rock—it was all we could play. I was lead singer and guitarist. I don’t have a good singing voice, but that’s the beauty of punk rock. You just need something to say and the courage to scream it. For the next several years, with Spread Eagle and other bands, I screamed and sang in clubs and dive bars around the country. As the crowds cheered us on, the louder and crazier we got. I also negotiated contracts, marketed the band, sold merchandise, and managed budgets and schedules. Those years were transformational. They taught me about being a business owner and an entrepreneur. They taught me I could create my own space.
