Why Join Jarvis Commercial Real Estate?

Management works for our professionals not the other way around

We treat our brokerage professionals like clients.  We walk the halls and listen to suggestions and concerns. It’s a great way to communicate and uncover potential opportunities. We consider our professionals like partners, as they are in any other advisory business (law firms, consulting firms, etc.). This means involving our professionals in strategic decision-making. Moreover, Jarvis promotes an environment with less bureaucracy and internal politics, freeing time to do what you do best.

Advantageous commission structure

Jarvis rewards professionals’ initiative and achievements by offering advantageous commission structures. We want our professionals to have financially successful careers. We are privately owned and are not driven by quarterly profits.

Changing the brokerage culture

Jarvis promotes collaboration and communication in a smaller, more collegial environment, unlike the environment of larger brokerage companies where there is competition between internal professionals. We want to create a culture of excellence and “likability”, not just high producers. We want to foster a creative and unique environment, and hire professionals who are making waves and noise throughout the industry.

Experienced and Visible Senior Leadership

The principals know Greater Washington, D.C. and possess unsurpassed market knowledge and unparalleled relationships within the real estate and business community. Though the company’s name is based on our local heritage, we don’t approach this as a traditional business. We intend to change the delivery of commercial real estate services. As local market experts, we are the first to see new trends develop and can collaborate to design strategies which create value for our clients.

Company and individual branding

While we build our brand, we also want to promote brokers’ brands. Your success is our success. We encourage our professionals to join boards and take on speaking engagements. As subject matter experts, our professionals represent us well.
