We had the good fortune of connecting with Jason Sirois and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jason, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
“You got this. Make it count.” This is simple but immensely powerful to me. The phrase is engraved on a small stone on a bracelet I wear everyday as a reminder to have confidence and not waste time. To me this is coming from two voices. One is the voice of my family. The other, my own. I am fortunate to have a family pillar as strong as iron in my life. My parents, siblings, extended family, and friends make up this pillar and when I read this phrase, I feel them and hear them rooting for me. When I wear this bracelet I feel unstoppable and the feeling is rooted in love. I’m a firm believer in mindset and taming negative self talk, yet I’m by no means immune to it. “You got this. Make it count.” shuts the monkey mind up and re-centers me to remain focused on doing just a little bit better than yesterday, everyday.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I love real estate and the freedom it is capable of creating for people. The real estate field is packed with agents for consumers to choose from. The reality is most of the business is generated by the select few who hustle for their clients and commit to providing an excellent customer experience. What sets me apart in the sea of sameness are my 6 core values that I work hard to hit every day. They are as follows. 1. Deliver value 2. Embrace learning, 3. Build trust 4. Execute with discipline 5. Commit to excellence and (most importantly) 6. OUT CARE EVERYONE. I got to where I am today through a commitment to my core values. Knowing where the housing market is, understanding the contracts, listening with intention, negotiating for my clients and out caring everyone. The formula is simple, but not easy. I don’t see success as something that is obtained or achieved, rather it’s practice. I love what I do because I’m required to stay sharp. Real estate is a field that requires constant learning, evolving and intentional action. This will never get old. I want the world to know that who you work with matters. I take great pride in my brand and the experience people get with they work with me.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
This is a great question because I was that friend visiting before choosing to make the move officially. We would have a busy week. In no particular order… here’s what would happen. Morning Wash Park coffee walk. Hike in Golden Gate Canyon State Park. Brewery hop and art walk through RiNo don’t forget to drop into Modern Nomad and Improper City. Hike the Royal Arch Trail in Chautauqua in Boulder then grab a burger at the OG Snarf Burger and a beer at Rayback Collective if you can still walk. Picnic at Cheesman (don’t forget the frisbee). The history of this neighborhood and surrounding area is incredible. LoHi night out. Grab dinner at El Five (or) Linger (or) Rootdown followed by Little Man Ice Cream (Salted Oreo, duh). Consider a swanky cocktail at Williams & Graham while you wait for your table. More into punk rock? That’s cool, me too. Hit up Occidental. Catch a show at the Mission Ballroom or Larimer Lounge for something smaller (but just as groovy). Hit up Golden! Breathe heavy cycling up Lookout Mountain and then pucker up for that FAST ride down!! Drop into Xicamiti La Taquería for lunch. If it’s winter time, we’re hitting up Winter Park. Walk South Pearl and soak in the history of Platt Park. If they’ve never seen Red Rocks… show or no show… you gotta go. Cruise into the mountains for a drive. Nederland is always a fun drop in. Walk First Friday on Tennyson if timing works out. Still hungry you say… okay go back to South Pearl and get some Izakaya Den.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I wouldn’t be where I am without the support of my family and friends. Thank you for your love, guidance and support. Andrew Abrams (A-Squared Real Estate) has been an incredible real estate mentor. Thanks to your market knowledge and industry savviness, big wins have been created not only for myself, but more importantly for my clients. When I had just started out as a real estate professional, maybe a month in, a friend gifted me the book Ninja Selling by Larry Kendall. The principles of this book are about building relationships, listening to customers, and helping them achieve their goals. It is less about selling and more about how to create value for people. This is exactly what the business world needs more of.
