Luxury Lake Oconee Welcomes New Member of Real Estate Team

Jennifer Vaughan

Luxury Lake Oconee is excited to announce the addition of our newest team member, Jennifer Vaughan. Jennifer and husband, Larry, have been residents of Reynolds Lake Oconee since 2010 with their three boys, Matthew (11), Jordan (9) and Brandon (6). Jennifer is a graduate of the University of Michigan with a degree in Language Arts. Vaughan began her successful sales career in the information technology industry with software company Novell, and progressed to Motorola and Symbol Technologies. In 2006, Jennifer married Larry, and they began construction of their home at Lake Oconee.

Jennifer is actively involved in the community. The Vaughan family is a proud member of Lake Oconee Church. Larry and Jennifer are strong supporters of St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital and Lake Oconee Academy. Jennifer serves as a Board Member of the Lake Oconee Academy Foundation. Jennifer has been involved in numerous fundraiser activities for the school including the Denim& Diamonds Committee, the LOA Capital Campaign Committee and Chairperson for the Tees for Titans Golf Tournament, a role she has held since 2015.

“Riezl and I have been friends with Jennifer and Larry for over ten years. After working with Jennifer on community projects over the years, I can tell you that Jennifer is a consummate professional. She has a strong work ethic and understands the value of hard work.” stated Ted Baker, managing broker of Luxury Lake Oconee. “The advantage I had while in sales was that I spent lots of time with the engineers learning everything I could about the products prior to taking them to market,” Jennifer explains. She looks forward to applying the same principles in her role as a Realtor by learning the inventory, understanding the goals of her clients and delivering superb service.

In recent years, we have welcomed a new generation of families who gave up the urban hustle for a better quality of life. Jennifer is well poised to welcome these families to Lake Oconee. Jennifer enjoys exercise, boating and golfing at Reynolds Lake Oconee or Cuscowilla, where she and her family are members. “We are fortunate to live on the lake, a stone’s throw away from the Ritz and major amenities. I pinch myself sometimes and remind my boys to be grateful. I am looking forward to introducing the community and our wonderful lifestyle to others,” said Jennifer. Luxury Lake Oconee Real Estate is a full-service brokerage with over 40 years of combined experience serving buyers and sellers in Lake Oconee real estate.

Easter is one my favorite holidays for many reasons. It signals the beginning of Spring and brings the hope of a bright and warmer weather. Flowers bloom and colors cover the horizon. Easter also signals a time of reconnecting with family and friends through traditions. As a child, I remember getting up early for sunrise mass, and in my Sunday best, anticipating what seemed like the biggest egg hunt ever. These days,I still look forward to the beautiful celebration of the Lord’s resurrection and the day’s festivities shared with our family and friends, with the setting of the sun as the day’s colorful grand finale. Several of my favorite friends share their Easter traditions:

 

“Unlike days past when mom fit all the girls in white patent shoes, Easter bonnets, and the boys in clean clothes with socks and shoes, Dave and I play golf on Easter Sunday. We have non-golfing friends who come for dinner or we go to one of the clubs.  Of course on a sunny Easter day, the boat beckons us to the lake.” – Elaine Thillen,

 

 

 

“Our three boys, Matthew (11), Jordan (9) and Brandon (6) love the Easter Egg hunt at the Reynolds Commons. It is packed with kids from the community, as well as visiting grandchildren and families, and they have so much fun making new friends. We go to church on Easter morning, followed by brunch at one of the clubs. The Lake Club Easter brunch is fantastic and has become our favorite!” – Jennifer Vaughan

 

 

 

“We built our home in Reynolds while living in England and moved to the community full time in 2009. We are very active parishioners of the Catholic church and attend the early Easter service, followed by golf with the boys. The day ends with a delicious Prime Rib dinner that I prepare for the boys.”

-Patty Dailey

 

 

“Denny and I first moved to Lake Oconee in 2015 with our three kids Taylor (17), Ty (15), and Trace (13). Easter has always been a special time for us to gather together with our church and family to celebrate Him. We moved from Northridge Christian Church in Milledgevile to Lakepoint Christian Church in Eatonton where it has become an Easter tradition to attend Easter service at the Rainey family’s farm, the Briarpatch.

After the service, we go to a large family gathering for an Easter egg hunt with four generations, play baseball, ride  four wheelers, play with the farm chickens. As long as the weather allows, we end the night with a relaxing boat ride on Lake Oconee with our Fur-babies feeling grateful for all He has provided. “
