Jared Carlson is a Parker and Aurora real estate agent you’d like to know. He was born in Denver, CO and has lived here all his life. He is a Realtor & Investor with an extensive construction background. He lives in Parker and works there as well as in Aurora, Colorado.
Early on, Jared’s work interests were focused around the construction industry. Jared’s passion for building began at an early age when his eagerness to work with his hands fueled the satisfaction he felt while watching each of his projects evolve. Throughout his high school and college years, Jared always worked jobs related to building such as a laborer in a lumber yard and as a residential framer. While Jared’s initial studies at the University of Colorado were geared toward engineering, Jared quickly realized that this did not fit his long-term ambitions.
He transferred to Colorado State University in Ft. Collins, CO and graduated with high marks in the Construction Management program. Immediately after college, Jared went to work for Pulte Homes for five years and then transferred to John Laing Homes where he gained an additional 5 years of experience building homes and working his way up to the Director of Construction, overseeing all the construction field operations. During these relationships, Jared gained experience in everything from warranty operations to building homes to running the field operations. This experience, coupled with his degree in Construction Management from Colorado State University gives Jared a knowledge base and well defined perspective on the building process.
While working for John Laing Homes, Jared’s goal of owning his own construction company began to take shape. In 2004, Jared opened the doors to one of Denver’s premiere luxury builders – Carlson Homes. Carlson Homes primarily built homes in Denver, Douglas and Elbert County in the price range of $550,000-$1.5 Million. Large remodels and additions such as “Pop Tops” were also part of the business plan. While the company’s primary focus is on home building, it was also a member of the Home Builders Association of Denver and an affiliate member of Douglas/Elbert Realtor Association. Since incorporating, Jared attained a Real Estate license in Colorado and is an active real estate broker.
Jared obtained his Real Estate license initially for his own deals focused around his building company. As his real estate experience grew and the luxury home market began to soften he made the switch into full time real estate. Some may say that’s the same thing, but for Jared some of his best years have been 2010 and 2011 during some of the hardest times. The real estate business, his clients and relationships have provided him with great satisfaction. His clients have nothing but good things to say about him and he has obtained the designations of SFR-Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource Certified, CDPE-Certified Distressed Property Expert & REO Certified-Lender Owned Properties.
He is also a 2011 & 2012 Five Star Real Estate Agent. The Five Star Real Estate Agent Program is designed to identify and showcase real estate agents in a local market who score highest in overall satisfaction. As part of an in-depth research process, real estate agents are evaluated by their customers and real estate industry professional based on customer service, integrity, market knowledge, communication and negotiation skills, closing preparation, helping you find the right home, marketing the home being sold, and overall satisfaction. Jared has invested in Real Estate, flipped properties, held rentals and helped others do the same in their path to wealth. He has also created the “My Teacher Program” which is designed do help teachers in their real estate endeavors.
