Associate Broker, Justin Simnitt brings great experience to the team. Justin grew up in the Portland area but has made his home in Salem for the last ten years. He graduated from Corban University, majoring in Business Administration and Accounting, and began his career. Prior to working in finance, Justin’s first professional endeavor began in high school when he started a business helping families in the community do landscaping and home improvement projects. As he planned to attend college, Justin knew he wanted to be in a field that allowed him to connect with people and put to use strong business sense and practice. During his time in college, Justin was active in school and coaching high school basketball. You will still often find him on the court playing basketball with friends or on the golf course trying not to throw his clubs in the lake.Despite Justin’s love for athletics and competition, his greatest win was scoring his beautiful wife, Megan in 2012. Together they enjoy serving in their church, sharing Christ’s love in the community, hosting friends and family for dinner, working in their yard, and trying out new coffee shops and restaurants in town.While Justin worked as an accountant and Megan as a pre-school teacher, they began to search for their own first home. Being first-time home buyers was both exciting and nerve-wracking, but when they found the house they were overcome with joy envisioning the ways they could make it a home. This process sparked a desire in Justin to bring the excitement and peace of mind that clients need as they look to purchase or sell their home. His hard work, financial background, and attention to detail make Justin a reliable and helpful resource, but it is his genuine care for those he works with, that sets him apart. Justin’s greatest desire is to make sure his clients are listened to and taken care of with the ease of a little laughter along the way as they too find their house to make a home. Justin can be reached at 503-260-1077 and Justin@thebraunworthgroup.com.
