Jae Ahn-Benton was born in Seoul, South Korea and moved to Las Vegas at the age of 10. Jae learned English as a second language and went through his early years of education in the valley.
Having studied piano from early childhood, Jae has continued to pursue a college degree in piano performance. To this day, he performs musically as a classical solo and collaborative pianist with organizations such as Nevada School of the Arts, Henderson Symphony Orchestra, the Institute for Young Dramatic Voices, and Opera Las Vegas. Jae also is a self-employed pianist, opera coach, composer, and arranger and has serviced over 600 individual clients over the past 8 years.
Jae is full of energy and is constantly looking for new opportunities. From this came his decision to branch out to the real estate industry. Music is a very personal matter to every client as is buying and selling a house. Jae says, “What better way to help others than to assist with one of the most important and personal decisions in their lives?”
From his extensive experience in the music industry as an independent contractor, Jae is very accustomed to one-on-one interactions with his clients. As a real estate agent, he is confident that he will be able to exceed expectations of each client.
Furthermore, his exposure to cultural and linguistic diversity at a young age, coupled with his experience as an opera coach (where he learned the basics of Italian, Spanish, French, and German language and diction), fueled his ambition to extend his helping hand even further by servicing his clients who have difficulty in the English language.
Jae is currently fluent in Korean and English; with the help of his Ukrainian wife, he also hopes to soon become fluent in Ukrainian and Russian, as well. As Jae gains more experience as a real estate agent, he hopes to overcome as many language barriers as he can to achieve maximum possible satisfaction from clients of all different backgrounds in any real estate transaction.
The Brown Blankfeld Group is excited to have Jae on our team. His commitment to help others coupled with his language skills will enhance the buying and selling experience. Please give Jae a call to help with your real estate transactions.
