Jay Kinder was literally born into real estate. His father, John Kinder, began his real estate career in 1977, the same year Jay was born. By age nineteen, Jay was ready to make it on his own and in July 1997 under the Coldwell Banker name, he became a full-time agent. Jay developed a passion for every aspect of real estate and yearned to know as much as he could about the industry. He used the knowledge that he acquired to empower those within the real estate network as well as clients during the home buying and selling process. His intense focus has led him to become certified in the Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) and a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), which less than 1% of Realtors obtain. Motivated also by the urge to provide value-added life experiences and promote home ownership across the Lawton community, Jay set his goals high from the start and never let down.
For ten years, Jay has worked to develop the most effective real estate system in the industry and his business acumen and intent on continually gaining knowledge has paid off. In 2007, Jay was named #5 in the World for Coldwell Banker, competing with over 120,000 realtors – being the youngest to ever obtain this achievement. The results don't stop there. In 2007, Jay was also ranked #1 in Oklahoma and #2 in the Southern Region including over 1,700 realtors from 14 states. He has been recognized with the honor of #1 Sales Associate in Oklahoma in 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. Jay was also honored by the Small Business Administration as the 2006 State and Regional Young Entrepreneur of the Year. As is evident through his accomplishments, Jay has continued to grow and succeed with his business and has loved every second of it.
Throughout his real estate career, Jay has been depicted as the Master of Real Estate and has earned recognition as one of the Top 30 Realtors under 30. He has been quoted in some of the top Real Estate publications to include Realtor Magazine, REO Magazine, The Residential Specialist and RIS Media Real Estate Magazine.
