Scope of Service Experience

A proven leader and accomplished executive, Jason joins NAI Mertz as an industrial specialist committed to maintaining an immersive knowledge of the market – its inventory, market conditions, and under-the-radar trends – that effectively accomplishes assignments of any size and gets deals done. He is committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for his clients and believes in fostering strong relationships that successfully address immediate requirements and align with long-term real estate objectives.

Jason joins an NAI Mertz industrial team that features several of NAI Global’s Top Producers and Costar Power Brokers. He has the benefit of working alongside Fred Meyer, SIOR, EVP and Director of Brokerage & Corporate Services, Scott Mertz, President; Jonathan Klear, SVP and other accomplished industrial brokers.

Background & Experience

Prior to joining NAI Mertz, Jason thrived in managerial roles at some of Philadelphia’s premier restaurants. He held management positions at several Starr Restaurants concepts, including General Manager of Buddakan, an iconic modern Asian fine dining restaurant in Old City, Philadelphia. His culinary career culminated with the launch of his own restaurant concept, Porch & Proper, in Collingswood’s Restaurant Row. After establishing the venture as a star in Collingswood’s increasingly competitive dining scene, Jason sold his restaurant to move on to bigger things – namely manufacturing facilities and distribution centers. Jason’s proven ability to flourish in the fast paced, demanding environs of Philadelphia’s restaurant scene has him well-positioned to bring similar success to his clients in New Jersey’s dynamic industrial real estate market.
