Info

My name is Jessica Hickok and there are several things that have made me tick since 1978. The most important is my immediate family, the hubs since 1998 and my two boys since 2000 and 2003 respectively. You do the math on all that. I love to talk about everything from my family, my job to shoe shopping. If you click the "Ancient History" category, you might discover more.

What I Do

Prior to taking the job as the CEO of the Oklahoma Association of REALTORS® in December 2016, I was the Association Executive for the local Greater Springfield Board of REALTORS® and and General Manager for the Southern Missouri Regional MLS based in Springfield for four years. I don’t do what I do, because I am a recovering REALTOR® broker, after 14 years.  It’s because I actually like what I do and I have a quirky passion for the organization.

What I Call “Accomplishments”
  • A long time ago, I was a REALTOR® and property manager.  Yeah, I have some good stories loaded with sarcasm. That slumlord taught me everything I know about real estate and I am more than thankful for the experience. I call him slumlord jokingly, of course.
  • I was one of Springfield Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” recipients in 2011.
  • I spoke about residential property management at the Annual Conference for the National Association of REALTORS® each year from 2009 through 2012.
  • In 2008, I started the local chapter of JDRF Ozarks.  (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).  I am a Type 1 diabetic (juvenile, brittle, attach-whatever-obsolete-term-you-want-here) on an insulin pump and JDRF has my heart.  Now under the Springfield chapter is under the direction of amazing staff, the local non-profit raises almost a half million dollars each year for Type 1 diabetes research.  One day a cure will come.
  • I once had a vision to design my own shoe line.  I actually have five prototypes already designed and ready to be manufactured.  Maybe one day.
  • I am a girl geek who likes to design websites, develop apps and talk tech.  But I am self taught and only know enough to be dangerous.
  • At the end of the 2016, my family and I moved to Oklahoma City, because I accepted the position of Chief Executive Officer for the Oklahoma Association of REALTORS®, a 10,000+ member association that focuses on cool projects like advocacy, government affairs, professional development, and education… just to name a few things.
