When I first got into real estate, I immediately wanted to figure out how to separate myself from everybody else.
So I asked myself, “Why would someone choose me over the thousands of other agents that are out there? How could I stand out? How could I offer more value?”
What if I could set myself apart by being transparent, authentic and serve my community all at the same time?
“Yes that’s it!” I thought, “I will write, take pictures and videos, all to highlight the people, the places, lifestyle, and homes of Fresno and the surrounding areas. I will give my real opinion on a home’s value, even if it wasn’t the popular one.”
I decided at that moment to commit to being true to this vision no matter how many people supported, liked, retweeted or read my blog post. I’m sure glad I did.
Over time I realized that the more content I produced, the more business I got. Over the next few years, through the use of various media, community events, and downright passionate efforts of many, FresYes.com developed into a real estate company founded on the same principles.
Today, we’re excited to announce our latest evolution in growth as a company.
FresYes is taking a big leap.
We believe in what we say, and we are acting upon our commitment to the community.
To solidify our faith in the economic development of Fresno, real estate and our team, we will be adding more than 150 agents and staff members who will work, eat, shop, and attend events in Downtown Fresno. The landscape of real estate and business in Fresno is changing and we are constantly evolving to meet that change.
We are growing our team into the historic J. B. Inderrieden Co. Packing Plant building, which is more commonly referred to as the ‘Old Spaghetti Factory building’. (2721 Ventura Fresno, California 93721). This new top floor location, which spans 18,000 square feet, will allow us to cement our company in the heart of our community.
This growth opportunity will allow us to add more of everything our clients, community, and agents have come to know and love us for. There will be more technology, more community-forward initiatives, more homes sold and more opportunity for us to help Fresno continue to move into the future.
When people see what we’re bringing to downtown Fresno, I think it’s going to be exciting. (Click here to watch the live annoucement)
We’re ready to invest in people and create a culture that people want to be a part of. There’s something special about arriving at an office full of like-minded people every day. It’s my hope as you look around our offices, you will see people laughing, having fun, being full of energy and excitement and doing what they love doing each and every day. This collaborative energy just can’t be obtained working from home, which many agents and creatives have started to do in the past few years. We’re going to change that trend of old.
So, I’m elated to have the opportunity to finally open up my doors and say:
“Look, if you’re in the real estate industry and you’re looking for a change, or if you’ve thought about real estate and are curious if it’s for you. We have room for you. With our expansion, we have the chance to give you a spot, to give you a chance, to show you how real estate can be done in 2019, 20 and the years to come.”
It’s imperative to me to continuously evolve as a leader, a leader who cares deeply about his tribe and his community. Someday when I’m gone, it would mean everything to me if I was remembered as someone who made others better. That would be a life worth living for me, one of legacy. If I can make 200 agents and staff members better than the day they walked into my doors, I will gleefully accept that challenge.
But, just don’t take my word for it, some of our favorite agents took the time to explain what FresYes and my commitment to leadership means to them, I’ve included each testimonial at the conclusion of this story.
Lastly, I just want to thank you for your support. I owe our success to each one of you, whether you are a supporter in our online community or live in the Fresno area, I am so grateful for each one of you who have supported my dream for the last twelve years.
Thank you for making the impossible, possible. Additionally, a special thank you goes out to the folks at Bitwise who have invested in the downtown growth project since the beginning and gave us a fair shot at our chance to make a difference with a fantastic, fair price on our new lease.
FresYes Realty and I are eager to remain focused on Community, Culture,
P.S. Stick around for the details and testimonials below!
Current real estate agents or those interested in a career in real estate may confidentially speak with myself, or a team member by clicking here.
Consumers will always buy and sell real estate; this hasn’t changed since it first began. What has changed is the way buyers are searching for property and the expectations of sellers who market their homes. This process is forever evolving, and FresYes is pioneering the way to stay above the curve and on top of market trends.
FresYes has adopted an innovative culture of opportunity creation. They have provided every agent with resources, so that they may remain in control of their business. From time-saving software programs to unique ways to implement videos in your marketing, complemented with many more trade secrets we reserve for our team members and all our clients! FresYes has a pulse on the market and Jason is deeply connected with leaders from around the country who share with him new thoughts, ideas and what’s working.

Jason’s coaching is the real deal. He is the first Broker that I worked under that spent one-on-one time with me and used that time to share his knowledge and strategies to help me build my business. You don’t receive a prepackaged plan or get hit with a ton of motivational speeches. Jason is authentic and provides relevant coaching that fits you and your business. From the beginning, he will break down where you are, where you want to go, and how to get there. He identified my strengths, helped me remove roadblocks and designed a plan that led me to the success I had only dreamed of since entering my real estate career. Jason’s ingenuity, focus, clarity and years of experience make him the perfect coach if you are looking to take your business to the next level. It’s just one of the perks of being an agent with FresYes Realty!
FresYes is the kind of company that invests their energy into helping people be at their best. They are very selective in who they let work for them, not because they want to be exclusive, but because the culture at FresYes is about people who love this city, are self-motivated, who celebrate the growth and success of everyone in the company, and who are more invested in cheerfully helping each other, rather than being competitive. There is a refreshing lack of drama and game-play here. People here are more concerned about being at their very best rather than comparing themselves to others. Little things go a long way at FresYes:
-No desk fees for agents.
-An incredible, community-minded website for Realtors to use for their own content.
-Lots of cutting edge training opportunities that make a difference and aren’t just dull seminars.
-An emphasis on relationships over money.
-A spirit of fun, and healthy competition rather than rivalry.
-Leadership that is professional, highly competent, and hard-working, but at the same time, it’s fun, humble, and deeply invested in the community. -People who work here enjoy themselves, are nurtured, and are given the freedom to grow, excel, and belong.
I was born and raised in the Fresno area and am so proud to be working for a company that cares about the community and thrives at giving back. FresYes has raised its voice to support our community. They’ve enabled me to volunteer for local shelters, be a part of events such as FresYes Fest, and purchase products from local businesses at my office! FresYes is invested in the well-being of our Community, and it’s future.
I chose FresYes Reality as my brokerage for so many reasons. The people, the culture, and the leadership of the office are absolutely amazing. But as a business owner, I thrive because of the cutting edge marketing resources that are available to me. There is absolutely nothing like it, and it propels my business to the next level.
Do you know what makes FresYes Realty the best?
Of course, the people and the culture are amazing, but the cutting edge marketing tools are what set our office apart. We have a culture suited to utilizing powerful and impactful marketing tools and technology that propels this business to the next level.
FresYes truly epitomizes community! Jason, Corrie, and the entire team are always available for giving out guidance, which is incredibly important. Your clients can rest assured that they will have not only you but the whole FresYes team on their side as well. You learn and grow as an agent when you are surrounded by an experienced team who is willing to share its knowledge. The classes and training are also fantastic. As an agent, you are kept up to date on the latest real estate legalities, and you will learn how to grow your own brand as a Realtor. If you’re a Realtor looking for a brokerage, FresYes is a clear “yes!”
I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.
Fresno? I say FresYES
