There's no substitute for Experience
Get to know Ken Jones, ASA, SCGREA, CRES
I started my real estate career as a NJ real estate agent in 1971 and have been involved in literally thousands of real estate transactions.
I began training new real estate agents when I opened my real estate brokerage in 1978, became a New Jersey Real Estate Commission Certified Instructor in 1982, a Certified Tax Assessor by the New Jersey Division of Taxation in 1986.
In 1988, I founded and operated Liberty Assessment Consultants and saved hundreds of major property owners throughout the eastern U.S. hundreds of thousands of tax dollars.
I founded the Institute of Real Estate Technologies in late 1991 and provided real estate appraiser and brokerage pre-licensing and continuing eduation courses and seminars in must of the United States.
During the Savings & Loan crisis in 1991, I was appointed Acting Senior Review Appraiser (GS-14) for the Resolution Trust Corporation (RTC).
The Superior Court of New Jersey has appointed me Condemnation Commissioner and Expert to the Court at various times in the 1990's.
In the late 1990's, I provided financial analyses and mortgage underwriting services to major commercial mortgage backed securities (CMBS) firms, including Chase Commercial Mortgage, CitiCorp Securities, Deutsche Bank, and the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York.
In the end, there really isn't much I haven't done or experienced in the real estate industry.
