To say that Jeanne Queen is a busy woman would be a gross understatement. She is a mother, cook, and gathering extraordinaire with a background in biomedical photography. She is also one of the co-founders of Monarch Realty Co., the current Design Director, and recently earned her broker license enabling her to take an even bigger role in the company. Without Jeanne it is likely that Monarch Property Co. would still be a dream on a page. Without further adieu, we introduce you to our matriarch Jeanne!
Jeanne has an eye for detail, and skill for bringing an idea into a beautiful reality. This artistry carries over into her work. When asked about her current position in the company Jeanne said, “I love designing spaces that feel classic and timeless. Real wood, tile and stone are always essential elements in all of our houses. I love to use whites, greys and tones of blue and sea-green. I run from beige walls!” Take a look at any of Monarch’s renovations, and you will see Jeanne’s vision. Her philosophy is, “If you are going to do something, do it right the first time.”
When asked what is special about Downtown Raleigh, Jeanne replied, “Diversity, walk ability and a small town city feel.” She went on to add,” Unfortunately, many of our great historical landmarks have been destroyed. It is extremely important to me that we maintain the historical character that remains.” We believe that this statement gives great insight into her passion for preservation, and have zero doubt that she will persevere in the betterment of our city.
If you see Jeanne around town we encourage you to say hi! You might find her zooming across downtown in the mornings walking her son to preschool, at Joule for a cup of coffee, at Videri for a meeting, sneaking a quick lunch with her husband at CC16 or late night after the show at Mecca. Feel free to ask her advice on your renovation!
