Jason is a husband, father and entrepreneurial coach with a passion for helping professionals live happier, healthier, more productive lives.  Jason believes that it is not only possible, but should be the aim of every entrepreneur to be both profitable and fulfilled in his or her endeavors.  

Jason got his start as a business coach and consultant in 2012 while selling real estate in northern Virginia.  As a member of the Agent Leadership Council of his brokerage, Jason often masterminded with other top-producing real estate agents.  There he quickly learned that many agents were making a lot of money - running highly profitable businesses - but were totally unfulfilled.  They knew what they were good at (in most cases), and how to get the job done, but they really didn't have much of a reason for WHY they got out of bed to work each day.  They knew the routine, but lacked a sense of purpose.  That was a wake up call-to-action for Jason, and the genesis of REAL Smart Consulting.  

Today, Jason coaches and consults with real estate agents; mortgage lenders; financial services professionals; senior corporate leadership and more.  As a result of his coaching, business owners have doubled income; launched new teams; pursued buried dreams and continue to chase after and tackle the unknown.
