Jocelyn is our office Broker and a well-known real estate leader on the South Coast. She’s also a serial entrepreneur who while managing the demands of raising a large family, always managed to create her own professional opportunities and put 110% into whatever it is she’s doing. In the 1970s it was the clothing business. In the early 1980’s she was a co-owner in a successful ice cream business. In the 80’s Jocelyn was introduced to the real estate business and it has been love ever since even considering the often times 7-day work week.
Prior to establishing Demakis Family Real Estate with her son Chris, Jocelyn participated in several other real estate businesses over her 30-year career in the South Coast real estate marketplace. Most recently working at Bold Moves real estate where she was a top producer, Jocelyn was the previous President of Water Street Realtors. Prior to Water Street, for over two decades Jocelyn honed her real estate sales and marketing skills for two leading national real estate franchise systems in Mattapoisett. In both instances, she achieved national recognition as a “Top Producer”, often repeatedly leading her office in sales.
Having lived in the South Coast community her entire life, Jocelyn is well known in the real estate and local business community. Her constant networking is behind much of the success her business has enjoyed.
Jocelyn is well versed across a spectrum of real estate transactions and in particular, the marketing of high-end and waterfront properties. She is a graduate of the Waterfront Historic League’s Realtor Program that has earned her the designation of “Historic Home Specialist”. She is a member of the Realtor Association of Southeastern Massachusetts (RASEM), the Massachusetts Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. She is a former Director for the Greater New Bedford Board of Realtors (now RASEM).
