As an account executive with First American Title, Jason Geary makes it his business to understand and meet the individual needs of his clientele. Working closely with real estate professionals and mortgage specialists, he offers a well-rounded perspective on the roadblocks and opportunities encountered throughout the course of a real estate transaction as well as in building personal businesses. Proactive, highly communicative and outgoing, Jason paves the way for a smooth experience for every client with whom he works.
Though Jason launched his career in the title industry he has readily shifted gears, taking measures become well-versed in industry-related fields. For four years he worked at the offices of the Assessor and Recorder in the County of San Bernardino, an experience that allowed him to build an incomparable knowledge of the intricacies involved in real estate transactions. He transitioned into a position as a licensed real estate agent, a move that not only provided him with insight into the demands facing today’s real estate professionals, but one that also reinforced his decision to return to a career in title.
“I’ve discovered that my greatest skills are in building relationships where I can be of ongoing and regular service to my clients,” he explains. “In title I have the ability to maintain consistent levels of customer service, and to help agents and mortgage professionals build their own successful businesses.”
Early in his title career Jason took advantage of the opportunity to gain experience in multiple departments including title services, customer service and the FARM division. His position with the latter had him collaborating with real estate agents, identifying their business and marketing needs and creating solutions that fit their individual styles and approaches. Today Jason enjoys commiserating with his business network, revving their professional engines by strategizing ways to best meet the expectations of a diverse consumer base while adhering to industry rules and regulations. He’s also an excellent liaison between agents and mortgage professionals and the title specialists within First American Title.
“I do know how to ask the right questions,” acknowledges Jason. “Oftentimes people in my position have great sales backgrounds, but aren’t necessarily well-versed in the field of title itself. My background adds value to the level of service that I offer my clients.”
He specializes in the residential resale market in San Bernardino County, From San Bernardino, to Redlands and Yucaipa, working with properties at every price point. Jason’s client-centric approach is the glue that holds many transactions together. “Through my work with the county I’ve gained a better knowledge of how and where to find resources pertaining to title issues, as well as critical deadlines that can have a tremendous impact on home owners,” he notes. “I share this knowledge when it’s applicable, to help maintain smooth and successful transactions.”
Supporting Jason’s efforts is an incomparable team of professionals at First American Title, a consistent leader in the field. “First American Title is hands down, the industry leader, and yet the company manages to maintain a boutique feel within each individual office,” notes Jason. “This personal element appeals to my clients, who like to know who they are working with during a given transaction.”
Throughout his First American office, adds Jason, the philosophy is on accomplishing successful transactions. “Our team is responsive and creative, identifying viable solutions to problems and challenges. When necessary, they’ll go into overdrive to get the job done.” The proactive group adheres to First American Title’s promise of reliability and security, and is committed to developing long-term relationships within the real estate and lending communities.
Jason looks forward to the opportunity to continue to build relationships with area real estate professionals and mortgage specialists. Tailoring his approach to best fit their needs, he sees potential in technology and the information superhighway as a resource in providing educational outreach. “I understand that agents and lenders aren’t always behind their desks,” he offers. “I’m exploring ways to reach them on their terms, to continue to offer the support and assistance that they have come to count on from me.”
Though he’s a dedicated professional, Jason hasn’t relegated his personal interests to the back seat. An avid outdoorsman and automobile enthusiast, he revels in the opportunity to attend NASCAR events when time permits. He’s also a family man; Jason and his wife Ashley are proud parents to a son, Bradley.
