Get To Know Jared

REALTOR® | Principal

My name is Jared, and I would love to let you know a little about myself and begin a new working relationship, or even better... a friendship together!

I am originally from California but have been living in South Florida since high school, where I attended Spanish River High in Boca Raton. There, I made lifelong friends, which is something that has always been very important to me!

In high school, I worked at our family business as a plumber and water heater specialist. I held the record for the fastest water heater installer, which was under fifteen minutes! I was fortunate enough to buy my first home in East Boca Raton, at the age of 18. When I was 22, my parents decided to relocate to Washington, and I took over the business, becoming the owner of Water Heaters Only, where I employed eight people. I successfully ran the company for many years until I got a job offer from FEMA, where I started my then-new career.

During my time at Water Heaters Only, I took a vacation to Jamaica, where I met my wife, Kristy. Kristy is also from Boca, and attended my rivalry school, Boca High! She also attended FAU. We have two amazing children together and one cool dog!

While working for FEMA, I found it very rewarding, as I worked in natural disasters and felt honored to help during difficult times. But working away from home for so many years made me miss my family, so I decided to use what I had learned along the way and start my own inspection company. Beginning in this line of work was a bit tricky, as I quickly learned that many REALTORS® and inspectors work hand and hand, but not always in their client’s best interests.

After running the inspection company for so many years, I often heard REALTORS® tell my clients things that were not true or things about the property that were flat out wrong, just to get the sale or simply because they didn’t have the knowledge. Therefore, I ended up being both the inspector and REALTOR®, spending hours answering questions that the REALTOR® wouldn’t or couldn’t answer. One day my wife told me I should be a REALTOR® since I was doing all the work…and that’s when things just clicked. I know about all of these homes inside and out. I have helped homeowners save thousands of dollars with my knowledge of insurance laws. So, why not become a REALTOR® too! I wanted to be able to share what I know and help buyers and sellers feel confident about these major decisions in their lives. And, it just feels good to do the right thing.

After I took the real estate course, I had two neighbors ready to buy and sell, so I had to pick a broker, and fast. These were great first experiences, and I have continued to grow more and more ever since then.

I am a lover of technology and am continuously learning more about it, educating myself about laws, insurance, and anything that has to do with your home.

Along with my real estate license and prior plumbing experience, my credentials and certifications are as follows: Board Certified Master Inspector, which is the highest honor a home inspector can receive in the industry; Licensed drone pilot (I have owned and operated drones for many years); Roof Inspector Internachi certified; Wind Mitigation Inspector Internachi certified; Deck Inspector Internachi certified, Exterior Inspector Chimney Inspector Internachi certified; Crawlspace Inspector Internachi certified; Four Point Inspector Internachi certified; Annual Home Maintenance Inspector Internachi certified; Roof Data Technician Inspector Internachi certified; HVAC Inspector Internachi certified; Plumbing Inspector Internachi certified; Pool Spa Inspector Internachi certified; HAAG Certified Inspector; Internachi Infrared Certification; and International Association of Certified Home Inspectors.

Finally, I would like to mention that I pride myself on my quick response time. If you have ever done any business with me in the past, you are aware that I always respond to emails, texts, and/or calls. It drives me crazy when I can’t get a hold of someone or they don’t get back to me! I have always and will always take any time out of my day to answer any questions or concerns you have. I have the expertise and knowledge, and I would make an exceptional REALTOR® for you! I also will keep up to date on my education and continue my understanding of real estate, so I can always do what is in YOUR best interest. I promise to work hard to ensure you get the best experience and would love to be your real estate agent.

Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about me and my real estate journey, and I look forward to working with you!
