JODY ZINK, CRS
Certified Residential Specialist,
Realtor® in Ohio & Michigan
Jody's a born Hoosier, living in Ohio and working as a full-time Realtor®.
She's worked in real estate since 2003 after leaving TV news. She holds a bachelor's degree from Indiana University, serves on the YMCA/JCC board of directors and was elected in 2016 by her peers to serve a 3-year term for the Toledo Regional Association of Realtors. She takes great pride in working very hard and loves helping give her clients the information they need to make the best possible real estate decisions.
Jody is also a voice actor. You may have heard her voice on an elevator, TV, radio, or while waiting on the phone. If you’re really interested, click here for a listen.
When trying to relax, Jody loves doing yard work and having a color book and crayons nearby!
Jody lives in one of Toledo's great neighborhoods, Old Orchard. She likes cats, enjoys watching Seinfeld reruns, and secretly wants to buy a kayak.
DENAY KNOPE, Esq.
Licensed Attorney in Ohio,
Realtor® in Ohio
Denay joined the Jody Zink team in 2015. A former professional editor and current non-practicing attorney, Denay is a Toledo Law and University of Michigan Alum (and a Wolverine through and through!). She still likes Buckeye fans, though!
In the office, Denay works very closely with Jody behind the scenes to get clients to the finish line as seamlessly as possible. In 2016 Denay became a licensed Realtor© in Ohio in order to help the team provide 5-star service to clients.
The art of real estate has become Denay’s passion. She found such joy as a licensed agent, that in 2017 she pursued teaching new agents at a local business college. She now teaches three different real estate classes and thoroughly enjoys engaging with each anxious new crop of students!
Originally from Newfoundland, Canada, “a Newfie, eh”! (by way of Novi, Michigan), Denay is a Toledo transplant, and has lived in the area for 15 years. She has two fantastic & active kids whom she is learning to raise with her amazing husband, Brandon, and is also a foster dog-mom (with four keepers!).
When not serving as a mom-taxi for her Irish dancer & soccer player, or helping clients with real estate needs, Denay enjoys downhill skiing as much as possible every winter at Boyne Highlands and Nub’s Nob. She also looks forward to long summer days at her cottage on Paradise Lake in Northern Michigan and is teaching herself to knit.
