Jason Thibodeau always had a passion for hospitality. Before his tenure as a Service Manager for the rail line connecting Halifax, Nova Scotia to Montreal, Quebec, he spent years honing his client service skillset. Then, eleven years ago, when he restored and sold a home, he discovered his love of real estate. “That’s when I learned my true passion,” he remembers. “I fell in love with the business and with homes and general, and now it’s in my blood.” Four flipped homes later and with half a decade of experience behind him, Jason has crafted a sterling reputation for professionalism, enthusiasm, and an authentic commitment to his clients’ best interests.
Today, Jason serves clients under the banner of Century 21 A & T Countryside Realty, Inc. There, he works in conjunction with two other agents and an administrative lead, serving clients, within roughly an hour’s radius from central Moncton, New Brunswick. What’s more, Jason’s team earned the #1 rank in their office. Thus far, Jason has cemented an impressive track record and derives a significant contingent of his business through referral clientele. For his part, Jason cites a can-do attitude, communication, and authentic intentions as the motivating factors of his business. “You have to be passionate about this business and really love what you do, because it’s a 24/7 career,” he explains. “As agents, it’s our job to cater to our clients, be accessible and available, and work with them on their schedule and with their priorities. I do all I can to make my clients’ lives easier while they go through the buying or selling process.”
Thus far, Jason has worked with a variety of buyers and sellers, and relishes the opportunity to educate clients amidst the complex transactional process. Likewise, he understands that those relocating to the area need more than assistance in securing a home, but also need guided insight into the region and its communities. “There are a lot of people I work with who are new to the area, which is exciting for the both of us,” he says. “I’m not just showing houses, but I’m also educating them and introducing them to different areas and neighborhood, making sure they find the right fit. I also work with a lot of first-time homebuyers. It’s so fun to guide them through and explain all that can happen with a home over the years. No matter what, you have to be honest in pointing out the good and the bad.”
When it comes to the listing process, Jason understands the importance of a striking first impression. To begin, he ensures all properties are leveraged with high-quality photography, followed by wide-ranging exposure across the leading online listing platforms. “First impressions are so important, so you have to do it right and be as accurate and specific as possible,” he explains. “When we advertise the home, we make sure to highlight all its features. You have to impress people and keep them interested.”
To give back to his community, Jason and his team are contributors to the region’s SPCA. “We’re very big animal lovers in our office and it’s very important to us to give back in ways that are really needed on a daily basis,” he says. In his free hours beyond the office, Jason most enjoys taking advantage of Moncton’s local events, sports and entertainment, and outdoors, as well as visiting family back in his native Nova Scotia.
As for the future of his business, Jason shows no signs of slowing anytime soon. He plans to continue his steady upward trajectory, while adding new knowledge to his repertoire and serving more and more clients along the way. “I intend to keep growing and meeting new people,” he says. “The exciting thing about the real estate industry is that there’s always new things to learn—new situations, new products, new codes and laws, new people. Learning is one of the most important parts of this business, and you can never have too many new experiences. I love the variety of what I do and I thrive on a challenge. To me, the most important things are to cater to your clients and stay passionate. If you’re not passionate about what you do, you’re in the wrong business.”
