Real Estate Agent
Jessica Averbuch is a selling Broker and CEO/Owner of Zeitlin Sotheby’s International Realty. She grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida and received her Bachelor of Arts from Washington University with a major in Anthropology and a minor in Psychology, followed by earning her master’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Texas. Her career ambition was to become a Primatologist and study primates in the wild. A myriad of factors led her to pivot towards a more conventional career, including her first home purchase experience and a strong desire to be an entrepreneur. She moved to Nashville and began her real estate career in 2001 as an Affiliate Broker with Shirley Zeitlin & Company Realtors. Jessica’s academic background lent itself to a natural transition into training and she became the Vice President of Education for the firm in 2007 and became an owner the same year. In subsequent years, she was first named Managing Broker and then CEO in 2016. Jessica was tasked with leading the company into the future in a dynamic industry in a rapidly growing region. The company’s affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty in 2018 was a strategic move to align Zeitlin’s locally respected name with a well-recognized, global brand: a move which provided to be the right decision at exactly the right time.

Throughout her 22 plus year tenure, Jessica has continued to sell real estate as a top producer and serve as an advocate for her loyal client base. She has received numerous awards including Nashville Business Journal’s Nashville Emerging Leaders Award in 2010, Woman of Influence Award in 2018 and Most Admired CEOs Award in 2022. Jessica was also recognized in 2020 as a Habitat for Humanity Groundbreaker. She is proud to be consistently ranked in the Nashville Business Journal Book of Lists as one of the top female-owned and family-owned businesses and residential real estate firms.

One of Jessica’s passions is playing an active role in her community. She leads the Zeitlin Charitable Fund initiative that raises money for several local non-profits including Second Harvest, Our Kids, Bridges of Williamson County and Shower Up. She is also involved in the following civic organizations: Nashville Downtown Rotary, Leadership Nashville, Nashville Downtown Partnership, The Table, Nashville Chamber of Commerce, and Williamson Inc. Jessica uses the experience and knowledge she has gained through her involvement and leadership to further her commitment to the Greater Nashville community.

Jessica and her husband live in the heart of Nashville and their college age children are graduates of University School of Nashville and Hume Fogg High School. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, hearing live music, reading, being outside, and participating in races of all distances. She has run 20+ marathons in addition to more half marathons and 10Ks than she can count. She ran the Boston marathon and the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim in 2022 and has many more adventures to come!
