Jessica Averbuch of Zeitlin Sotheby’s International Realty has been ranked by her peers as a top business leader.

Nashville, TN, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2022 – Jessica Averbuch of Zeitlin Sotheby’s International Realty has been announced as a 2022 Most Admired CEO recipient by the Nashville Business Journal, honoring her work ethic, leadership, industry knowledge, and the profound impact she has on her colleagues and the community she serves.

After achieving her master’s degree from the University of Texas, Jessica moved to Nashville and began her real estate career in 2001 as an Affiliate Broker with Shirley Zeitlin & Company Realtors. Jessica’s academic background in anthropology and psychology soon lent itself to a natural transition into the role of Vice President of Education in 2007—the same year she became a partner in the firm.  In subsequent years, she was 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, and in 2018, she led the strategic movement to affiliate with the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, partnering local expertise with global reach and recognition.

Throughout her 20 plus year tenure, Jessica has continued to sell real estate and serve as an advocate for her loyal client base. She is proud to be consistently ranked in the Nashville Business Journal Book of Lists as one of the top female-owned businesses, family-owned businesses, and residential real estate firms. She is also passionate about her community, leading the Zeitlin Charitable Fund initiatives that raise money for several local non-profits including Second Harvest, Our Kids, Bridges of Williamson County, and Shower Up, in addition to participating in several civic organizations throughout the middle Tennessee region.

The recognition of 2022 Most Admired CEO is noted as a particularly special honor for Jessica, as it is a title also held by former CEO and founder, Shirley Zeitlin.  “It is a true delight to follow in Shirley’s footsteps. I am so honored to receive this recognition by my peers who are accomplished and respected leaders that I hold in the highest esteem.”

To assemble their list of honorees, the Nashville Business Journal accepted nominations from the public. Nominees were grouped into categories based on their company size and type, and then were asked to vote on one another. Those with the highest scores after voting are this year’s Most Admired CEOs Awards honorees.
