JASON LANYARD | Lic. R.E. Salesperson
Jason’s track record is not just a tagline but a resume of his achievements. Over the course of his nearly 15 years in the industry, Jason redefined brokerage to reflect one prime directive: profits. He revolutionizes the transactional nature of real estate by viewing all property not as a realtor but more of a wealth manager: real estate after all is the most significant (and personal) asset class in one’s financial portfolio. Be it a Condo, coop or townhouse, primary residence, pied-a-terre, vacation home or investment property, each is not only a representation of present value but of future resale profit. Most brokers askew making projections of the future, but for Jason and his carefully trained team, it is a business model.
Jason graduated from Princeton and then had a brief career as an actor after training at the Royal Academy of Mu- sic in London. Clients appreciate his unique style which blends his academic background with the contemporane- ous ease of a performer. Buyers and sellers alike benefit from his encyclopedic knowledge or property amassed over the years. Sellers especially appreciate his creative approach to sales and marketing which allows him to marry the aesthetic elements of a well-presented property with the strategy of a diabolical advertising campaign.
For Jason, luxury is not just a lifestyle but a statement of wealth and prosperity. Put Jason to work for you and let him grow your wealth with your real estate.
