Jason Gentry, NCR Global Sub-Committee Chair, provides a personal testimonial of the significance of being a part of the Global Network.

I have found the realm of real estate to be an intricate and diverse field, deeply rooted in my personal and professional journey. Drawing upon my prior experience in Architecture, I have always possessed a global outlook, greatly influenced by the intricate tapestry of built environments in cities across the globe. While assisting both Buyers and Sellers in real estate transactions is inherently rewarding, my aspirations have extended beyond these transactions. I have been unwavering in my commitment to contribute to the growth and betterment of our Realtor® Associations at the local and state level, as well as our communities.

In 2013, I had the distinct privilege of being recruited by Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, an organization that stands as the pinnacle of global real estate brands. Sotheby’s International Realty boasts the distinction of being the sole genuinely global real estate brand, featuring an expansive network of residential brokerage entities spanning across 81 countries and territories, with 1,075 offices and a remarkable roster of 26,000 global real estate advisors. My affiliation with this esteemed brand has opened doors to a plethora of new networking opportunities.

Within the context of this global real estate landscape, North Carolina, and particularly my home market in Charlotte, has emerged as one of the most prominent destinations within the United States, experiencing unprecedented growth marked by the influx of businesses, job opportunities, and a burgeoning population. My role as a knowledgeable and high-performing global real estate advisor within this thriving market has charted a career trajectory beyond my wildest expectations.

A significant catalyst for my success in the international arena has been the invaluable educational resources offered by the National Association of Realtors®, NC Realtors®, and various third-party organizations. These resources have fortified my engagement on the global stage, bolstered by a collection of prestigious designations and affiliations, including:

  • CIPS – Certified International Property Specialist™
  • RENE – Real Estate Negotiation Expert
  • AHWD – At Home with Diversity®
  • CLHMS – Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist™ (Million Dollar Guild)
  • AREAA and AREAA Global – Asian Real Estate Association of America
  • LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance
  • Our Trusted Network™
  • Certified Agent with Concierge Auctions
  • Relocation Certified with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty

In summary, my journey in the realm of global business and real estate has been profoundly shaped by a commitment to excellence, a dedication to giving back to the community, and a strategic alignment with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, which has positioned me as a leading global real estate advisor in one of the most dynamic markets in the United States. The educational resources and affiliations I have acquired along this journey have been instrumental in my continued growth and success in this dynamic and ever-evolving field.
