AT THE JAY COMPANY,
WHO WE ARE
A FULL SERVICE COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE FIRM
The Jay Company is a full-service CRE firm founded by a local father and son in Greenville, SC. The Jays and their team draw from decades of experience in CRE, brokerage, development and investments, in addition to the innovative drive of a rising, entrepreneurial generation.
As a family company, and one comprised of multi-generational South Carolinians, it's important to each member of The Jay Company to build a reputation of loyalty to our customers - people who also live, work and provide for others throughout the Southeast.
We aim to be synonymous with unparalleled excellence in the ways we conduct business and cooperate with all parties. We also find joy in the pursuit of excellence and continual improvement. (For us, it's actually just that simple.)
Our guiding ethic is to create positive impact on all whom we meet, both personally and professionally. We are here to serve you. We know that we can set a new industry standard for service and the client experience. Through a remarkably client-centric process, we strive to be exceptional, innovative, and exceptionally innovative in the ways we consistently produce client-driven results.
The Jay Company foremost exists to honor the Lord. Therefore our purpose as an organization is to leave the world better than how we found it; such as through positive, constructive, and ethically-minded work with other individuals and organizations. As shareholders and developers in multiple communities, we consider it a privileged responsibility to serve the needs of others around us, financially and physically.
We make a positive impact as professionals through our superior service to other people; by sharing our expertise in CRE generously; and by supporting others in their own pursuits of achievement.
We seek to partner with clients who believe in us the way we trust and believe in them. We are supportive of their visions for their businesses, and we deeply appreciate those who commit to working with us. In return, we commit to delivery of an exceptional plan and results that precisely fulfill each client's needs - on time and within budget.
We believe that we honor the Lord by operating the company in a manner consistent with Biblical principles.
We believe in stewardship, and conducting business with servants' hearts. We believe in shared livelihood. We believe that each client organization should be treated as if it were our own - and our own family that depends on the results of our transactions.
We believe that business can - and should - be done better. We believe there is joy found in the pursuit of excellence and continual improvement. We also believe we are establishing a new industry standard for client-first attitudes and experiences.
We believe in being genuine. We believe in making others believe in us. We must earn the trust and support from our clients, other organizations, and the communities we affect.
They come first. We strive to put others before ourselves in everything we do.
CARE, DEVOTION + GOODWILL
We make it evident through our work and client interactions that we care for people, their personal successes and well-being, and their communities.
COOPERATION + STEWARDSHIP
Reliable, trusting partnerships rooted in honest communication, shared vision, the desire to support others, and appreciation for community will always succeed.
PERPETUAL PURSUIT OF PERSONAL EXCELLENCE
We demand of ourselves aspirational standards and work ethic, pragmatic self awareness, informed perspective, and commitment to our own continual improvement.
