The Studio

Leadership

Jan Loomis
Vice President
As vice president of creative marketing, she oversees graphic design, copywriting, advertising, video production and project management, helping address the challenges and providing the encouragement that result in killer work.
Jennifer Hargaden
Director, Media and Billing
In addition to being a super-mom, Jennifer is a super ad manager, fearlessly handling the advertising spends for Coldwell Banker Realty.
Jennifer McGuire
Director, Creative Content
As director of creative content, Jennifer leads the way in video production, copywriting and social media for The Studio.
Jenny Panitch
Director, Creative Operations
Though her bubbly personality might not make it immediately clear, our Jenny is an old soul. Like, “celebrity crush on Dick Van Dyke” old. Maybe that’s why she has the drive, dedication and incredible attention to detail that enable her to pull off seemingly impossible feats like flawlessly implementing Workfront, our project management system, nationwide. Today, she heads up The Studio’s project management and traffic team, putting her military high school education and MBA to good use as she keeps everything moving through on time, on budget and on plan. Her love of bad jokes keeps her laughing even when we have 563 jobs in the system at once, but if you REALLY want to see her smile, ask her about her dog, Pippa.
Matt Elliott
Manager, Project Management
If there was such a thing as a human Swiss army knife, that would be Matt. A self-described jack-of-all-trades, he masterfully tackles many jobs for agents as a marketing specialist. He believes being flexible and able to jump in at any given moment is the key to his success. He is an agent’s most agile ally and assists with marketing, training and everything in between. Matt is a champion for the company’s charitable foundation and is the liaison for the Coldwell Banker diversity program in Atlanta. Originally from England, Matt now resides in Atlanta with his wife and daughter. We’re so glad to have him on this side of the pond!
Melissa Huntsman
Creative Services Manager, Design Concierge
Her duties include helping The Creative (remove) Studio to design marketing plans and strategies that boost agent earning potential.
Julie Roller
Media Manager
Will work for chocolate! Julie is easygoing, dedicated, hard-working and genuinely cares about the work she does supporting the client’s marketing needs and affiliated agents. While we hear she is out looking for a new hobby, we do know that Julie holds a bachelor’s degree in criminology from Ohio State University – can we get an O-H, I-O!? – and has held her Florida real estate license since 2004.
Sam Rosenfeld
Creative Operations Manager
Attention to detail is what Sam is all about. She serves as the all-important liaison between the agents and the communications team. Sam is an indispensable resource for clients and team members alike. At her core, Sam is a problem solver, finding solutions to keep everything running smoothly is her forte. And don’t underestimate Sam’s adventurous side. She backpacked across Europe for six months by herself! Perhaps we could coax some European vacation stories out of Sam with her favorite Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup candy – we’re all ears, Sam.
Cara Klein
Global Luxury and Media Concierge Manager
When offices and agents have questions about their luxury marketing program, they call Cara. She makes sure everything runs smoothly, supports the overall program and publishes five Homes & Estates magazines annually.
Katrinka Sloan

She’s an avid kayaker with a passion for supporting youth development, serving as Committee Chairman for her sons’ boy scout troop and Merit Badge Counselor for the Boy Scouts’ Southwest Florida Council. On and off hours, she’s her favorite quote made manifest, “go the extra mile. It’s never crowded”.
Dana Jennings
Video Production Manager
Give Dana a task, whether it’s storyboarding a new video or training for a marathon, and he’ll get it done with skill, efficiency and creativity. As leader of The Studio’s talented team of motion graphics designers, Dana’s the mastermind behind the look and feel of a wide range of videos, including product launches, social media stories, tutorials and branding videos. He’s the go-to for posting videos on YouTube, organizing multiple channels and animating anything and everything. When he’s not producing amazing videos, you can find Dana kickin’ it on the soccer field or searching for a good cup of coffee.
William Sloan
Creative Director
Our national creative director needs no introduction. His artwork has been on display at museums and galleries around the world, he’s published four books, he pens colorful musings on his namesake blog and his illustrations are visual masterpieces. Bill oversees the creative direction at The Studio, guiding the team in concept development, presentation and brand application. For someone who loves the creative world just as much as he loves people, Bill’s role in The Studio is a natural fit. He’s a sought-after teacher and mentor who leads with confidence, curiosity and humor.
Vanessa Houston
