Founder/President of Systems Success
For almost 20 years as Co-owner/COO of Prudential California Realty and Coronado Financial Corp, Jolene was instrumental in growing her real estate firm, and its affiliated companies to over 350 agents and 50 employees in four offices with over $29 million per year in revenue. In addition, she operated 15 additional LLC’s and affiliated companies that supported real estate development, escrow, human resources, and property rehabilitation (now commonly known as “flipping”).
Since her departure in 2007 from the management of the real estate firm, Jolene has been able to focus on her strategic initiatives and put her passion for business to work as a “COO for hire”. She continues to consult with various entrepreneurs and companies, delivering the type of services and support that drove her success in her own company. She continues to be the Visionary’s Visionary, behind the scenes, providing unique understanding and listening for the Visionary at heart. Her happiest days are when she is actively supporting those leaders in delivering and implementing their unique ideas and products.
Jolene recently relocated to the Pacific Northwest city of Vancouver, Washington to enhance her role as Grammie to Avery. Her daughter, Haley, was a Finance Major at Boise State University and is currently working for a large financial institution in Salem, OR. When Jolene is not focused on work, you will find her exploring the PNW, horseback riding or creating new adventures with Avery. Jolene actively supports various charitable organizations and has completed two half marathons with Team in Training, raising several thousand dollars. Jolene participated as a board member for PAX Programs, Inc. and is currently an advisory board member of Hera Hub, an international co-working company.

George Hetzel, Associate Broker
Andrew Arroyo Real Estate, San Diego, CA
As a practicing real estate broker, I have used Jolene to help me resolve issues that I cannot work out on my own. First of all, Jolene has the ability to listen thoroughly and clarify what the real issues are. Once I can see clearly what I am dealing with, Jolene works with me to come up with the most productive solutions. Her coaching is extremely effective and takes me from anxiety to satisfaction and profitability. I highly recommend her services.

Oriana Shea, Oriana Shea & Co., Seal Beach, CA
It is a great pleasure to recommend Jolene McDonough as a top notch consultant in employment development. My business was growing rapidly growing and I had some serious staffing issues. Jolene came in, quickly assessed whether they were the right fit and personality for the positions they were in. She worked diligently to first define the roles that I needed to grow my business, and then fine tune the job descriptions.
Jolene took the burden of looking for the right talent, screening resumes and possible candidates off of me and for that I am truly grateful. Jolene was well worth the investment in my business and thanks to her I now have two very high functioning team members. I would absolutely recommend her and I would not hesitate to work with her again in the future.
