Jason first made a name for himself in the corporate sales arena. For over 15 years, he sold everything from commodities to intellectual property to clevel executives. He has unparalleled training, experience and sharply honed sales skills which become evident when he is selling his client’s homes and properties. His business is equally divided between sales and leasing with a focus on new development sales and leasing. In his personal life he is a tennis addict that dedicates a lot of time to practicing mindfulness meditation, getting out into nature with his canine pal Milo, and avidly consuming art and literature.
