Hello! I'm Jason Noriega, the Vice President of Experience for Christie's International Real Estate Sereno's Los Gatos office. When agents first meet me, they frequently have questions about my title. I explain that it's intended to shift from the perception that I "manage" the office to the reality that I support and encourage our nearly 130 agents to help them provide a superior experience for their clients. I lead with a perspective that, 'Agents don't work for me, I work for them.' My goal is to provide the highest-level experience for our agents and their clients as we navigate the ever-changing real estate industry.
My leadership style is built on a foundation of 25-plus years in real estate. I'm uniquely qualified to mentor our agents because I've walked in their shoes. I started my career in loans at Innovest Corp., then moved into sales at Prudential California Realty, Alain Pinel Realtors, and Sereno. Working with buyers and sellers, I was known for my intuition, creative problem-solving skills, and personable approach as I completed over 500 transactions.
Building community within the office and company remains my priority. We're independent contractors, though we're really ‘interdependent'—we're always better together. I take a vested interest in the well-being of each agent, not just their production, and I offer my time and energy to help individuals grow and thrive in all areas of their lives—as agents, spouses, parents, and members of their communities.
Originally from San Jose, I value our office's hyper-local presence and the sense of connectedness that runs through the culture of our company. My wife and I are raising our two young kids in Campbell, where we are active in our church and I regularly play piano/keyboards in a band. I have also served on the board of directors for Momentum for Health, which offers individuals comprehensive mental health services, since 2011. Personally and professionally, I am passionate about helping others reach their potential and fully participate in life.
