Jenny Paradis Broker Associate
12 Oak Street
Nantucket, MA 02554
Jenny Paradis's connection to the island has been life-long. From infancy, she spent many summers at her family's Surfside beach cottage, and during college she conducted island tours as a summer job. After graduating from Vanderbilt University in 1982, Jenny moved back to Massachusetts and worked in Cambridge for a travel wholesaler before migrating to the island permanently, becoming sales manager of a local travel agency. After starting a family in 1990, Jenny launched a real estate career, and is now in her 20th year of providing expert service and commitment to buyers, sellers, renters and homeowners. She joined Windwalker Real Estate in 2004.
An All-American high school and collegiate swimmer, Jenny shares her passion for the sport with Nantucket's youth. She has raised more than $30,000 for Swim Across America, a non-profit that raises money and awareness for cancer research, prevention, and treatment through swim-related events. Jenny is also a member of the Nantucket Triathlon Club. She and her husband Stephen have two daughters, Justine and Liza, and are active members of St. Paul's Church and Miacomet Golf Club.
"We developed relationship with Jenny Paradis and Windwalker over the many years we rented homes on Nantucket, and we turned to Jenny when we began looking to buy a home on the island. Jenny understood our needs, and her extensive knowledge of Nantucket real estate and her wealth of experience proved a great asset in the purchase of our new home. She is friendly, responsive, and efficient. She and her colleagues at Windwalker handled our transaction with integrity and ease.
Flax Family Nantucket
"For many years I counted on Jenny Paradis to help me find just the right rental house for my family's annual summer vacation on Nantucket, and she was always successful. She was always happy to meet me at the boat on a winter day and take me to see several different possible rental properties so that she could be sure that I would be happy when we all arrived in August, and I really appreciated her willingness to spend her time doing that with me. Over those many years, she also spent countless hours showing my husband and I possible homes to buy, as we pursued our dream of someday owning a house on this beautiful island, and last year we were successful and, thanks to Jenny, no longer need to rent! Jenny did a wonderful job helping us choose and purchase just the right home for our family-- she is very knowledgeable, and willing to find the answer to any and all questions, and she is calm and confident, which are wonderful qualities in a realtor. But most importantly, Jenny has become our friend over these many years, and we look forward to having her visit us in the home that she helped us buy on Nantucket. Thanks Jenny! "
