When the real estate market changed in 2007, I decided to get my real estate license. By 2012 I had earned my broker’s license. Since then, I personally average about 40 to 50 transactions a year in the Midlands; we have an outstanding group of agents who thoroughly love this industry. I enjoy working with buyers and sellers and have found a genuine passion in real estate and the relationships it forms. It changes every day and I'm constantly learning something new. I have turned that passion into my brokerage, J. King Real Estate.
As background, I started in real estate by investing and bird-dogging some established investors. I later began to wholesale, rehab and rent properties. I found Rent to Own was my favorite strategy in investing.
I grew up in Chapin, South Carolina and graduated from the University of South Carolina. Go Gamecocks!! I tended bar for 10 years to put myself through college. Yes, it took me a while to find a path in life. I'm married to an amazing woman who is definitely more well spoken than I (she’s an English Major). I also have a beautiful daughter, Elliot, and a wonderful son, Bennet.
"Jason and his team were great to work with, and we were grateful for their support! Thank you!" - B.M.
"My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend Jason to anyone looking for a patient real estate agent who is a savvy negotiator. He was our buyer's agent in a recent new construction purchase here in Columbia. He is even keeled and answered innumerable questions about each property we considered (existing homes as well as new construction) on our journey toward home purchase. He has a wealth of experience in home remodeling, so understands many of the intricacies of home construction, which we found exceedingly helpful as he was able to explain details that otherwise would have been quite confusing. We found him to be approachable, responsive and focused first and foremost on our satisfaction with our purchase, even when it meant more work for him. We purchased as out-of-town buyers, so he supported us with video tours of potential properties and made multiple visits to our purchase property to ensure all the details fell into place as we approached closing." - M.C.
Congratulations to our very own Broker/Owner Jason King on being recognized as a Top 5% Agent Award Winner. "Honest Agents. Genuine Service."
Jason, is very good at his job. Extremely helpful through the whole process. Goes above and beyond for his clients. - R.S.
My wife and I worked with Jason King directly, and could not have been happier with the services he provided. He helped us land an aggressive price on the sale of our home and he was a source of wisdom and guidance throughout the process. Highly recommend! - M.E.
Jason is one of the best real estate agents I have ever worked with hands down (and we have worked with a lot of them). In a sea of agents who are only in the business for the money, he is that elusive agent you only hope do actually still exist in this world. From start to finish he was patient, understanding, knowledgeable and most importantly, making decisions and giving advice that was solely in our best interest. If you are moving in from out of state or town, he should definitely be your agent. I worked with another agent prior to Jason who knew very little about the area we were looking in and gave us inaccurate information consistently, but Jason has lived in the area his entire life and knows the history, the culture and the breakdown of every neighborhood in the area. He is the epitome of Southern hospitality and we are so fortunate to have met him and worked with him after a harrowing experience at another agency. Perhaps it was an act of providence, but if you want to move to Providence, SC he will definitely help you. - JCS
We had an older house as it was my wife's childhood home. Jason worked tirelessly even when we were unaware of his efforts, contacting buyers behind the scenes, to get our house sold quickly. This is the 3rd time we have needed his assistance with buying and/or selling. He is a master negotiator and will go above and beyond in getting the job done. - S.H.

"Having Jason King represent me was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Due to previous experience with realtors, I was reluctant to use one in selling my home. Jason had however come highly recommended to me by a friend, and I decided to contact him. From the moment we met, he was professional, knowledgeable, and guided me in the process expertly. He never pressured me to list, as many others had, he simply let his professionalism speak for itself. He was there, tenaciously representing my best interests, from the moment we listed all the way to closing. I cannot recommend him more highly. If you need to sell a home, do not hesitate to call Jason. Outstanding experience." - W.H.

"I have known Jason for many years. He has flawlessly sold over a dozen homes for a friend of mine that is downsizing her rental business. Recently another friend I know needed to sell her house in the heart of downtown Columbia and move to a smaller home in Irmo. Jason went far beyond our expectations to walk her through every step of the way during the complicated process of selling, moving and buying a new home. If you need a trustworthy and professional agent who cares about your real estate needs, call Jason King and I promise you will be very pleased with his services." -M.D.
