It was a sunny day in central Pennsylvania, perfect weather for being outside. Elementary school had its ups and downs, but leasing out portions of the playground to fellow classmates on days like this was one of the perks. Jason knew his destiny lay in real estate.
Then came the early 80s and the pale rider known as the recession followed. Jason spent his time post-elementary school attending middle school, high school, then graduating from Ithaca College with a B.S. in film production.
Shortly after graduating, Jason moved to Los Angeles to teach the world a thing or two about being a Huddy. After spending probably a bit too much time at random karaoke bars and other places that he shouldn’t tell his parents about, he found solace in Los Angeles’ tempestuous attitude and complicated, often shrouded history.
After more than a decade editing television, Jason decided it was time for a change. He craved the interaction and advocacy that editing didn’t provide.
Los Angeles has given Jason an amazing wife, over a decade of a wide array of rescue dogs and a place to truly call his home. He felt as if it was his turn to help out Los Angeles and begin to create a narrative of the city that has beguiled so many. Since Jason had already been going to open houses in his free time, he realized that his journey actually began with real estate. He joined his successful wife in the real estate community and hasn’t looked back.

There are a myriad of stories hidden in the homes of Los Angeles. Let’s check some of them out and begin writing our own.
