Even though Jason Schenk did not immediately get into real estate after studying Political Science and Business at The Ohio State University, he says he always knew it was something he wanted to pursue.
“I’ve always been fascinated with the real estate market, and as the owner of Spectrum Property Services for 17 years, I had considerable exposure to the commercial real estate market,” Jason says.
Jason, who is also currently a licensed contractor, formerly worked as a retail and commercial banker, where he managed retail branches as an NASD licensed banker, eventually moving on to the commercial side of the bank to respectfully resign as Vice President of Commercial Banking for a successful Scottsdale bank. Jason resigned to pursue his goals of starting his own business and never looked back.
“Also, my wife’s father is a custom home builder in Chandler and Gilbert, and I always saw myself representing buyers and sellers in the luxury market,” he says, adding that prior to coming to Local Listing Pros, he worked for about two years as an agent with another successful Brokerage in Chandler.
All of these experiences have combined to give Jason a solid understanding of the real estate market. “All of my previous experience gained through baking, commercial finance and contracting have taught me that relationships mean everything and if you are going to be successful, others needs must come first” he says.
“Real estate is always something I’ve wanted to do” he says.
As the newest member of Local Listing Pro, Jason says he is looking forward to professionally working with clients and helping them find the homes of their dreams.
“For me, the biggest things that I enjoy about real estate may seem like the smallest things,” Jason says, adding that he has fond memories of his first client, and the pride that came with really helping someone achieve a goal.
“He was a young man who works at Intel who I met at a local dog park, and it was so wonderful to help him find a home, and then to negotiate a great deal and have it go smoothly was the most rewarding part of all. For me, it’s really about being able to help people with one of the most important financial transactions of their life- purchasing a new home.”
Jason was born in Kenitra, Morocco when his family was stationed there with the United States Navy before relocating to Ohio. He moved to the Valley 24 years ago and his wife is an Arizona native and former Phoenix Suns Dancer.
When he’s not working with his residential clients, Jason can be found coaching his daughter’s club softball team and, as he puts it, enjoying “trying” to surf with her at the beach.
“I’m really a pretty simple guy. I love to cook and I love having quality time with my family,” he says.
