Bayshore Realty of South Bend has recently acquired a new real estate agent; Jeanne Albanese has come back to work for Bayshore Realty. Albanese moved to the area about ten years ago to be with her grandchildren. Since then she has worked at Bayshore Realty before, but only for a short while. Before she worked in real estate, she was an insurance agent, "I figured it would be a good segway into real estate, they're similar businesses," said Albanese. Albanese has recently picked up gardening in her spare time, a hobby she has developed in the interest of personal health. Albanese has been collecting beads as well, that she says she's collected ever since her trip to Moraco. Albanese also enjoys taking trips around the country in her RV. Albanese has also gotten into making jewelry, but also collecting jewelry for a store next door to Bayshore Realty, called Something to Crow At. Albanese has taken to collecting old and interesting items for the new store as well. Albanese cites working with people as the reason she thought real estate would be good for her, and the fact that her friends have recommended it, "I enjoy hearing what people are looking for in the town as well as taking them on tours through the area," said Albanese. Albanese says that she has always been a systematic person, and doesn't mind doing paperwork and things of that nature.
