Born and raised in Texas, I have lived in the DFW area since 2006. I specialize in the local markets of Coppell, Valley Ranch, Las Colinas, Carrollton, Lewisville, Addison and Grapevine. However I do cover the entire DFW metroplex and have clients in Plano, McKinney, Southlake, Benbrook, Dallas and Ft. Worth, just to name a few. I recently earned the nationally recognized Graduate of the Realtor Institute (GRI) designation, and am also a certified Military Relocation Specialist (MRP). I am continually working on obtaining the skills and knowledge to earn other industry designations such as ABR, CNE, and E-Pro.
Before getting my Real Estate License, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Mass Communications - Broadcasting and worked for over 10 years as a Producer, Editor and Videographer. When I ventured into real estate, I thought I was making a complete 180 degree change. To my surprise and delight that is not the case at all. I couldn't have entered into a career in real estate at a better time, as my background in video, photography and media put me directly in sync with the needs and desires of a rapidly growing, technologically-based consumer.
My committment to my clients is evident in the testimonials I have recieved and referrals that they have sent to me. I pride myself in being a resource for my clients long after the ink dries on the contract. Because being a Realtor is more than just bricks and mortar. It's about families and community and a place to call home. I work hard at making real estate easy for my clients!

|Chris & Julia Guderian
|Mr. Grisham is a wonderful realtor. My husband and I moved to the area recently. Jay spent an entire weekend with us finding a home to rent. We only flew in for the weekend, and had to find a home to rent in two days. When we were riding around looking, he told us about the city and areas. He made the entire process much more enjoyable than we expected it to be. Jay was very determined to help us find and place, and he did. We found a house we love. He is a very professional realtor, who always has his clients’ best interest at heart. We had a great experience with him and plan to use him when we are ready to buy a home.

|"I've been working with Jay for awhile and have found him to be very conscientious, dependable, and detail oriented. He uses his considerable real estate knowledge to help his clients meet their goals. And he never lets his clients forget that they are #1. I've worked with numerous Realtors and agents, and Jay is on my short list of favorites."

|“Most Patient Realtor of the Year” – that’s the award Jay should receive, absolutely. I met Jay at an Open House and in less than 3 minutes he listened to my needs and my special requirements as a foreigner. Then two days after, he helped me get the process started to obtain my mortgage loan and in a very short time he and his team helped me to get my first home in the United States. During the search for a house, he was always receptive and flexible with his time in showing us different homes. He provided guidance and suggestions along the way, and helped us to find and buy the best home for me and my family. Also, less than a week from when we were to close on our house some issues came up, but Jay worked off hours on our behalf to keep the deal intact and help us get the best deal for the purchase. My family and I are very thankful for Jay and all of his efforts and hard work to get our dream house."
|“I met Jay four weeks ago through a referral from someone else. I was at the beginning of my home search. I must say Jay worked hard on helping me with my situation on trying to find a home that would work with my owner finance situation. For about two weeks he searched and searched and met me at each possible location to take a look at the property. I felt that he had my best interest in mind. He was hardworking, honest and dedicated. I definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for a home. Top qualities: Personable, On Time, High Integrity"
