It’s not every day a Pulitzer-Prize winning, national newspaper like the Wall Street Journal turns to an established local agent for insight on the real estate scene. Being selected is often an article in itself. Jackson Hole Realtor Latham Jenkins was so honored as part of a feature article on how the affluent on both coasts are turning to resort destinations that offer unscripted adventure as retirement locations.
As Latham put it:
“Most are looking for the experiential opportunities of living among the wildlife, skiing powder before the 11:00am conference call or biking the 65 miles of paved pathways in the region.”
The article focuses on three popular areas: Riviera Nayarit, Mexico; the Cascade Mountains; and Jackson Hole. It also pointed out part of the local appeal is we have no income tax and limited private land to purchase. [Read the full article.]
For Latham, the opportunity to be part of the article was two-fold. First, he represents one of the lucky few who have lived here for more than 25 years. Secondly, as a local real estate agent, being a source for a Wall Street Journal article puts him on the map.,
“I’ve been getting calls from newspaper and travel magazine writers, as well for blogs and podcasts. Being quoted in a national newspaper temporarily gives you status as an expert and social influencer,” he said. “However if you don’t consistently offer relevant, engaging quotes, that go-to status quickly vanishes.”
Latham knows all about offering interesting insights. Besides being a local real estate broker, he also publishes the leading Visitors Guide for Jackson Hole, the Jackson Hole Traveler and Homestead Magazine, the valley’s preferred home design brand. He feels they collectively give him unique insider knowledge on all things Jackson Hole. It’s how he came to the attention of the Wall Street Journal in the first place.

Steve Ankeny’s remarkable Gros Ventre North property has been chosen as Forbes Home of the Week.
Featured in Jackson Hole HomeReview and listed with Richard Lewis of Sotheby’s, the home is one of Jackson Hole’s most unique. It took 11 years to design and build, and with cratfmanship including grain-sequenced wood, custom-designed furniture, and “zero-impact” construction, ensuring the land around the home remained pristine by protecting it to within five feet of the building site, it’s a stellar property worthy of Forbes’ Home of the Week.
Naturally, Richard Lewis is excited about the placement. “This is great news,” said Lewis. “HomeReview has provided incredible exposure for my listings, producing very qualified prospective buyers.” Exceeding expectations is the goal.
