If you think about it, a residential real estate brokerage could be an add-on service to just about any other business. Be it a property management company, an investment firm or even a taco stand, the relationships you build with clients in any capacity have the potential to fuel a residential division. Jason Lewis began his real estate career as a strictly commercial broker but came to realize that he could add a residential arm and redefine what it means to be a real estate brokerage—without investing any additional marketing dollars.
Jason is the CEO of Ecospace, one of Denver’s fastest growing real estate firms. Ecospace is both a residential and commercial brokerage offering investment, ground-up development, rehab and property management services. In his 14-year career, Jason has completed more than 400 real estate transactions, and he has a personal portfolio of single and multifamily rentals, commercial office buildings, vacation rentals, new developments and mobile home parks valued at $10M.
Today, Jason joins me to explain how he leverages relationships in the commercial and property management space to fuel the residential division of Ecospace. He discusses his positioning as an investor-friendly, number-centric agent and describes how his team puts their value-add mission into practice. Jason also shares the origin of the Ecospace Fix & List program and offers insight into opportunities in new builds. Listen in for Jason’s advice around transparency and learn why it’s valuable to offer sellers several options up front!
