A Place To Call Home
Originally from Australia, Brett moved to the US as an adult. Annette was born and raised in northern Nevada. It was their common work ethic and shared desire to make the most out of life that brought them together. Their love of travel, commitment to family and mutual appreciation for nature and outdoor activities are some of the common ties that bind them together. Like many, Annette & Brett have developed high expectations in life. Yet they also know that the only way to achieve their goals is through hard work and determination. They met in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2001. Brett was in IT at the time and Annette had started her real estate career a year prior, after getting her masters in Behavior Analysis. In 2004 Brett joined Annette in Real Estate and together they built a business committed to helping Seniors rightsize to a more manageable space. Since family is so important to the Junells, in 2015 they moved to Reno, along with their then 8-year-old son, to be near Annette’s parents.
An Energetic Lifestyle
“Energetic” is a word that typifies both Annette & Brett, whether it be their 5 am workout before starting their working day, backpacking, snowboarding, or biking with friends and past clients, everything the Junells do is with enthusiasm and passion.
“It’s a matter of making the most of every moment. When you put your heart into everything you do, you get more out of it!”
Vision To Help Others
Early in their real estate career, the Junell’s had the privilege of hearing Zig Zigglar speak. They didn’t know it at the time, but he had a profound effect on them. Zigglar was one of the greatest motivational speakers of his time. He has many quotes, and the one that resonated with the Junells is the one they live by today, “You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.”
Annette & Brett have built their career on helping Seniors. This focus to help Seniors has sharpened their skills which has been a benefit to their clients of all ages. When in the Bay Area, they were the real estate team of choice by the only Continuing Care Retirement Community in Pleasanton, CA. They also worked with several Independent Living and Assisted Living Communities. Once they moved to Reno, they immediately reached out to all the resources the area had to offer for Seniors. Within 6 months of arriving in Reno, they started the Retired Living Truth Series with the mission to provide education and resources designed to help people live empowered lives and make informed decisions.
The Junell’s also founded Junell Moves Made Easy. When helping their clients, they realized that many would delay making a move to a smaller space because they didn’t know what to do with all their “stuff.” The idea of even making a move seemed daunting. Therefore, the Junell’s opened Junell Moves Made Easy, with the sole intent to help sort through items, organize an estate sale, donate, itemize what to take to the new space, organize movers, unpack belongings in the new space and set up their client’s new home. Moving can be exhausting, the Junell’s goal is to make the process easier for all their clients.
