Client-First Philosophy
What does this mean for you? It means keeping myself accessible so that I can respond quickly to your needs It means being a good listener as well as a good communicator. My Client-First Philosophy requires that I continually improve my negotiation skills, stay savvy about current market conditions and use the latest technologies to work more quickly and efficiently so that I can extend the range of services I provide to you. I also strive to provide you with a strong network of professionals to accommodate a smooth transaction.

I Love This Career
Since becoming a Realtor early in 2006, I've really enjoyed helping people buy and sell homes. I had previously been the business manager of a local motorcycle dealership when my mother, Dorothy Merritt, asked me to join her in real estate. I already had a sense of what was involved since Mom has been a Realtor my whole adult life and has shared many experiences. I had a hard time believing that selling homes would be as much fun as selling motorcycles, but I was wrong. I guess it has helped that I consider myself to be in a service industry and not in a "sales" position. I devote my efforts to finding the best solution for my client's real estate needs. Helping people find their next home and/or marketing their current home has become a passion for me. It is a real pleasure to get to know the people I work with and many past clients have become good friends that I see often.

Personal Life
Beyond my professional career, I am father of four little boys: Joshie (10), Joseph (8), Jonathan (6) and Jared (newborn). I am an avid motorcycle enthusiast who has been riding since 1986.  I appreciate my career and the support I receive from family and friends as it allows me to provide for my family as I serve you.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Hillsboro, OR.

Jason helped me sell my house. He was very focused, disciplined and very responsive. He advertised my house and was very proactive with keeping me updated about every step. I strongly recommend him.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Hillsboro, OR.

Jason Merritt was my real estate agent in Hillsboro, Oregon while I was living in Utah. He did everything he can to sell my home in a timely manner and used the latest technology to send and sign documents without the hassle of printing and faxing them. He will be a great for anybody who wants an attentive and knowledgeable agent. I highly recommend him.  More Less

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2011 in Hillsboro, OR.

Jason listed my home and was not successful selling it. Jason is very nice but I would not recommend him if you are selling. I received a very low offer and did not receive any guidance from Jason regarding countering the low offer and the result was a no sale of my property.
