Jonika Houk is the new owner and broker in charge of Country Places Realty. She purchased the business from long time (25+ years) local realtor, Kathy Hendricks. Kathy retired in October 2021 but still does referrals!
Jonika grew up in the foothills of East Tennessee on a small farm. Her father was a registered land surveyor and she worked with him for many years. Jonika often spent days in the mountains surveying large tracts of land. Later in life, her skills of reading topo and plat maps came in handy when she worked as a backpacking and nature guide in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Jonika has also worked seasonally as a horseback trail guide in Colorado and New Zealand. She loves to travel but always come back to her favorite place- beautiful Western NC! She has called Madison County her home since 2011.
Jonika was fantastic to work with. Professional and hard-working, we couldn't ask for a better person to help us sell our unique log home and land in rural Madison County.
Thank you, Jonika for all you did!
