Get to Know Jason Childs

Since high school I've been passionate about entrepreneurship. In order to test the waters of the real estate market, I started attending seminars and conferences at the age of seventeen. At the age of eighteen I started serious investing by forming a partnership Jayar Associates with Robert Childs. For many years I have frequently attended conferences and seminars concentrated on purchasing and renovating distressed properties. In the year 1997 I obtained a Bachelors of Science degree in Entrepreneurship from Wayne State University and graduated with honors. I have also obtained my Real Estate Brokers License and am currently an Associate Broker with Keller Williams Realty.

Also, I am an actively involved investor with several real estate investment firms such as Nottingham Homes, LLC, The Short Sales Group, LLC.  I am well rounded (not talking about my waistline) and currently involved in all aspects of the market including: short sales, foreclosures,  lease options, wholesale, discounted notes & mortgages, and hard money lending.  I was on the Board of Directors for 2 of the local Real Estate Investors Associations (REIA of Oakland and DOLLARS) for many years.

Though I am ardent about real estate and investing, I also lead a fulfilling life. I enjoys racing cars with my brothers and play drums in a local band. I'm a proud father of three sons and one daughter: Zachary, Zander, Gavin, and Shelby. I am incredibly personable and approachable when it comes to being open to discussing real estate and related subjects. If you would like to talk to me I can be reached at (248)755-2030 by phone or jason@theshortsalesgroup.com via email.


I am an expert in creative real estate investments.  I love short sales and negotiating with the banks.   I run a few businesses for people who want to save their home from foreclosure.  We also run an informational site www.whatareshortsales.com which can help home owners and agents understand how a short sales works.  Then there is www.theshortsalesgroup.com which is your best source for short sale leads in the market today.  If you need help with your Short Sales we would be happy to help walk you through the process,  check out our site www.shortsalesupport.com.

CNN Realty Group go out of their way for me. Every time! Their team has helped me invest in 5 homes this year, even after the market dryed up. They drive out over 40 minutes to take care of every detail when I purchase homes in Taylor. Thanks for stepping up for me.

CNN Realty Group were professional, timely and informational. They listened when I needed it, and gave their valuable opinions when necessary. I am glad to be involved with CNN Realty Group on selling my home. I recommend them to all my friends.

I am so glad to have worked with Josh, Jason and Kelly. They were always there for us selling our 2 homes and buying our new one in Farmington Hills. Every time something needed to be addressed, they all responded quickly and professionally. Thanks for selling our homes and helping our family move forward.

Rock on guys! Lisa and I are so happy to work with you when other professionals cant get the job done in over a year. You negotiated with our banks and got us approval on a short sale in under 60 days! And that's after helping us buy a new home in Clawson. Keep on rocking!

When the market changed, he was persistant in helping me find and purchase my new condo. Without his help or his hands-on approach, it would have been impossible to find a new home in the same school district.
