Career Development Officer
In 2002, Jennifer Tossavainen and her family decided to trade in the bitter Northeast winters for the Sunshine State's year-long warmth.
Drawn to the First Coast, Tossavainen spent her first 10 years as an Eagle Harbor resident, and now calls Orange Park Country Club home. Although she is not a native, her 16 years in Clay County have made her an expert in Northeast Florida’s lifestyle, neighborhoods, schools, communities and residents.
As a Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty Career Development Officer (CDO), Tossavainen utilizes her extensive background in finance and management to educate, empower, coach and advise passionate real estate professionals. The majority of her career has been spent in and around real estate with a strong focus on training, recruiting and business management. Tossavainen taps into this background, assisting agents with career development, business planning and company program engagement.
Not only has training and career development been a focal point of Tossavainen’s career, but it's also a subject she's personally passionate about. She believes by being a strong leader and advocating for business planning, sales training and coaching, agents are equipped to focus on high return on investment activities – thus, growing their business and exceeding their income goals.
Outside of business, Tossavainen is mom to two adult sons and two adult step-sons and is proud to have children serving in the Air Force, Navy and the Army. She is an avid tennis fan, a Broadway Theatre buff and enjoys spending free time on the dance floor and volunteering for the American Cancer Society.
