Sponsored: Iron Horse Real Estate: Connecting families to the community

Jennifer Van Wegen’s passion for her hometown of Pleasanton is evident the moment she starts talking.

History buff Jennifer Van Wegen’s new office reflects that fascination — it was built in the late 1880s and remodeled around 1937. 

It’s no wonder she’s thrilled to open the new Iron Horse Real Estate office on the city’s iconic main street.

Located in the historic building at 550 Main St., Iron Horse Real Estate is a boutique brokerage where the emphasis is community.

“We’re not only selling homes and properties, we are selling our wonderful communities and the lifestyle,” Van Wegen says. “This is the area in which we are fortunate to live and raise our families in, and there are so many great things to say about it.”

Van Wegen chose the name Iron Horse Real Estate because it represents the East Bay and symbolizes strength.

The Southern Pacific Railroad used to travel up and down what we now refer to as the Interstate 680 corridor from Pleasanton through Dublin, San Ramon, Danville, Alamo, and Walnut Creek to Concord. The rails have since been replaced with the popular Iron Horse Trail that continues to connect these vibrant communities.

The Pleasanton native believes she is “selling our wonderful communities and the lifestyle.” 

“Much like the Iron Horse Trail, we connect families and businesses to communities, which includes one of our local favorite restaurants, Salt Craft,” Van Wegen says.

“I think Pleasanton is one of the most special places to live,” despite the number of residents opting to leave the Bay Area and the state during this time, Van Wegen says.

“This community is hard to beat. Pleasanton is so unique, and I feel that its character and charm will always attract buyers to the area.”

A huge fan of architecture, interior design and modern art, Van Wegen designed her new Main Street location to reflect her desire to literally and figuratively leave her door open to the community. Van Wegen is convinced that post-pandemic, “people are going to crave that sense of community.” Supporting her community and giving back will always be the forefront of her business model and personally meaningful. She will continue to be an integral part of the vibrant downtown district as a member of the Chamber of Commerce and the Pleasanton Downtown Association. Her fundraising efforts always support her local businesses and restaurants. She has been a proud Gold Sponsor of the PPIE Run for Education, Big Bay Ray Horse Rescue and many other local community fundraisers. She will also be featuring art from local artists and retail items for sale in her office and continue to support locals. She looks forward to Iron Horse Real Estate being a stop in the Pleasanton Downtown Association events once they commence again.

Iron Horse Real Estate currently offers three agents and staff members to serve their clients. 

Meanwhile, her new office space is welcoming for people to gather and discuss available homes in the Tri-Valley’s many desirable neighborhoods, and how Iron Horse Real Estate can creatively partner with fellow local small businesses to give …read more
