Jason McLaughlin - Realtor ®
THERE WERE TWO THINGS I WANTED TO DO WHEN I GOT OLDER!
Number One: Make sure that I had the ability to take care of people in time of need.
Number Two: Be involved in real estate.
As for number one, I learned early on in my life during an incident as a kid that I did not know the first thing about taking care of someone, especially when they could not help themselves. For this reason, I learned everything there was about becoming a paramedic. I spent more than 18 years of my adult life pursuing the art of paramedicine. During my time, I helped and save the lives of thousands of people. I learned to lead groups of other emergency responders through difficult calls, hurricanes, and floods. I had an amazing career and thank all of the people that I met along the way, and wouldn’t have changed one bit of it. Although my time was well spent, there was still one other passion of mine missing which leads to the other thing I knew I always wanted to do.
As a kid, I loved looking at homes and imagining all of the possibilities of living in the new place. I would think about what my room would look like, who my friends would be, and where the Christmas Tree would go every year. I remember the excitement that I had during each of the showings that I would accompany my parents on and remember telling myself that someday I would be a Realtor. So here I am, three decades later beginning my career as a real estate agent. So far I have had so much fun doing it. I feel like a kid again every time I walk into a place and I often wonder if my clients get the same excitement and feelings that I did when I was looking.
What I recently learned is, being a real estate agent is not all that different from being a paramedic. Sure, I am not screaming down the road trying to save my patients life by getting them to the hospital as fast as possible, but I am driving down the road helping secure a place to live for my client. I am helping them in their quest to be a homeowner, have a place of comfort, and have that feeling of home.
My Continued Quest
My career as a paramedic started 18 years ago. My career as a Realtor started less than 18 months ago. However, it doesn’t change the fact that I will continue to help people in their time of need. My quest to change the lives of people carries over into the real estate world. The compassion, care, and kindness that I learned during my time on the streets have taught me that not everything is an emergency, but everything has a timeline and it should be done at the highest level of care. Which is way, I strive to treat you as if there is no one else in the world that matters more than you at this very moment and help you find the home of your dreams or sell the one that no longer fits your needs.
And I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
