Jason Hendricks is a native Houstonian, licensed as both a real estate broker and an attorney in the state of Texas. His extensive knowledge and skills are highly sought after by individuals and families who understand the importance of their investment in a home purchase or sale.
Calm and efficient, Jason provides well reasoned advice so his clients can make informed decisions. “I want to stay on an even keel, so that everyone remains calm and comfortable throughout the process. Unusual things can happen in any real estate transaction, but I want my clients to always feel at ease that we can handle whatever problem arises.” Jason strives for his client to always feel that their interests are being protected and they are getting good and timely advice. Jason relies on his legal background in negotiations and contractual matters, and gets high marks from past clients who are confident that he can help them navigate the many issues that take place in each and every real estate sale.
Customer service is another aspect of his background that is readily apparent to both his clients and others involved in the transaction. “I feel it is imperative to interact professionally (and friendly) with the opposing agent and their client, lenders, inspectors, appraisers, and contractors. We are attempting to conclude a transaction to get a buyer into and a seller out of a home. As a real estate professional, I feel it is my duty to make buying a home an easy and even fun experience.”
Upon graduation from Washington and Lee University, Jason worked for five years at Astrodome USA as an event coordinator. This was a customer service oriented position, where varied events and diverse groups of people were the norm. “I interacted successfully with sports figures, entertainers, promoters, society matrons, bikers; anyone you can imagine in hosting or attending a crowded event in order to produce a successful experience.”
From this position, Jason left to go to law school, and then worked for five years as in-house counsel at a Clear Channel Entertainment in the insurance and risk management areas. “A lasting lesson from this profession is the importance of contracts, and the necessity of protecting the client.”
The transition to real estate full time in 2005 was not unexpected, given his background in real estate. Hendricks Interests, owned by his father and uncle has been in Houston real estate for forty years, developing a number of subdivisions and commercial building sites. Jason gained valuable experience working in all aspects of the company for a number of years. Additionally, Jason’s wife is an architect, and they have designed and renovated homes for themselves, and for friends and family. “I have a general love of houses, I found I was spending increasing time advising and representing friends and family in real estate transactions, and came to a realization several years ago that this is what I needed to be doing.”
Jason also enjoys working with relocating clients. “I enjoy being an ambassador for our city. Often, people are coming to Houston for employment and don’t know the city or have misperceptions. I enjoy taking people around the city and pointing out its many benefits and diverse areas.”
In addition to real estate, Jason enjoys cooking, sports, and trying to keep up with his three children.
