ENJOY THIS EPISODE:
I am thrilled to have with us on this episode, Jay Mason. Jay not only works with Charis Realty but he is an active participant within the Frederick County Community. Serving on many boards through FCAR, EAG, United Way, and CHIP. Jay’s upbringing and background has been influenced by his former high school football coach at TJ, Coach Ben Wright. Much of why Jay has decided to give back to the community can be based on the influences Coach Wright had on Jay.
In this interview Jay opens up about his personal and professional journey that has led him to where he is today as a husband, parent, Realtor, and community liaison.
