Jason Cline, Vice President
Phone: (925)820-5557 x257
Born in Dallas and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area (by way of Denver, Chicago and San Luis Obispo), Jason graduated from California State University Sacramento, earning a BA in Business Administration with dual majors in Finance and Real Estate Land Use Affairs. After receiving his degree, he spent three years as a contract manager for Lockheed Martin working mainly on international classified satellite programs. After getting over the initial excitement (and booking enough frequent flier miles) of the overseas travel, Jason caught the dot-com bug working in the finance department at Netfish Technologies. He was instrumental in negotiating the terms of 2 rounds of venture capital financing and the subsequent $360m sale of the company to Iona Technologies.
From a Real Estate perspective, Jason completed the training and received his CA Department of Real Estate License in 1990 at the age of 18. In 1992 he became affiliated with Preferred Financial and originated mortgages throughout his time in college and working in other industries. In 2002, he began his career at Preferred Financial in earnest. Jason benefited from the client and referral base he developed over the years and hit the ground running and is amongst the top agents at Preferred Financial year after year.
As Executive Vice President of Preferred Financial, Jason runs the Insurance Services division of Preferred Financial Group and works hard to ensure that we have the best insurance products and programs to offer our existing and future clients. He firmly believes in the referral based model of Preferred Financial (by giving first class service, appreciative clients provide first class referrals) and the mission statement: “We listen, we educate then we perform like no one else in the industry.”
Jason lives in Danville, CA with his wife Christine and son Jameson.
