Real Estate Agent Maurice J. Jordan's Unique Path to Success

(Continued from home page)

Previously, he worked for decades as a chef in over 15 kitchens across the country, including stints at Cape Canaveral. He even has a few modeling jobs under his belt. 

Maurice grew up in tiny Charles-town, Massachusetts, a town that left him with an unmistakable Boston accent. Coming up in a blue-collar community meant that work was an integral part of life, for adults and kids alike. His culinary career began at 13, when he took his first job as a dishwasher at a restaurant to earn some extra money. It wasn't long before he realized that he loved being in the kitchen, with its constant activity and atmosphere of collaboration. 
   
After a long, successful career as a chef, Maurice found himself gravitating towards a different industry altogether. "I'd always been interested in real estate," he said of his career switch. 
   
In 2004, Maurice ventured into the world of real estate, working first with Re/Max in Sherman Oaks before moving to Nevada to deal in residential sales. Since 2007, he has been here in Santa Monica, selling with Coldwell Banker.

Maurice believes the qualities that make him a great agent are solid communication skills and a determination to satisfy clients. "To me, it's all about being human," he explained. “When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show it to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork, and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.”

Maurice continues, “Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience – which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that sells quickly.

When he's not in the office, Maurice enjoys spending time with his wife and participating in charity fundraisers. At 55, he ran his first marathon, later going on to complete the Maui, Los Angeles, and Boston marathons. Maurice is also active in the Toastmasters organization, which helps keep his public speaking skills top-notch.
