Hi, I'm Jason! I've been working in the mortgage industry for over 20 years. I manage and own First Choice Financial of the Western Slope. I have worked as an independent wholesale broker since becoming licensed and processed and managed the office since 2010. I take pride in our communication and education skills in all transactions, working with our business partners and homeowners to move to a quick and efficient closing! I am constantly adding new programs to benefit first-time homebuyers.Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two young children. We love the outdoors, cooking and traveling together. My son has recently inherited my love for all sports, so the games are on, or we are shooting hoops and playing street hockey. Our daughter and quirky personality keep us all in check. I look forward to serving all your home loan needs!

Inspired by their work, I received my license in October 2021 and have thrived in the industry ever since. I am passionate about helping clients through the home-buying process in an easy and hassle-free manner while landing them their dream home.Outside work, I enjoy strength training, spending time with my wife and our dogs, and playing video games.
