Ericka Jennings, CEO
Upon moving to San Francisco when she was nine years old, Ericka truly left her heart there. Now living in Oakland with her husband Eric and daughters Amelia and Tilda, Ericka revels in the Bay Area experience and all that it has to offer – like the vibrant city and neighborhood life, the world-class parks, and the beautiful Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. She believes that through personal effort and conscious decisions, we can truly impact our environment in positive ways.
With her love of people and attention to detail, Ericka makes every effort to make the home buying and selling process a smooth and graceful experience. She believes that every client deserves special treatment and strives to educate and empower. Whether it is in San Francisco or the East Bay, Ericka extends her knowledge of the market and her enthusiastic spirit toward assisting her clients in fulfilling their needs and desires, while helping them save time and money.
Ericka received the Realtor of the Year Award in 2004 from the San Francisco of the Women’s Council of Realtors. She was featured on Home & Garden Television’s “House Hunters.”
Ericka received a bachelor’s degree in Theatre Arts and Developmental Psychology from Hampshire College in Amherst, MA. She obtained a Masters in Business degree with a focus in Entrepreneurship & Social Responsibility from San Diego State University. There, she wrote a thesis entitled Seed to Blossom: Planning for a Socially Responsible Business, in which she interviewed owners and managers about best practices. All of these educational opportunities, as well as her life experience has made her well-fit for the role of Green Key Real Estate’s Chief Executive Officer.

Areas of Professional Interest
I am passionate about green real estate because…
Ericka is incredible. She can both help you buy or sell your home. She hung with us for over a year, was amazingly knowledgeable, and exactly the kind of person to have in your corner during negotiations. Ericka is seriously one of the most intelligent, competent people I have ever met, and she has a Rolodex that goes for days. Her business is all focused on utilizing green practices, so the contractors she recommends are definitely “our people”. A huge, heartfelt, deeply grateful, slightly in awe recommendation.
Ericka is a rare find as a real estate agent. She has solid real estate knowledge, market experience, and a driven work ethic to exceed a client’s expectations. Ericka also is there for her clients on a human level — giving understanding counsel when the heart and emotions come into play during the big purchase of a new home. If you’re looking for the best all-round real estate agent, STOP. You just found her!
