NEWS: Selling Jackson’s Hidden Treasures Helps Realtors Sell Jackson

March 16, 2016 Jackson, MI –Realtors in Jackson have gained the skills to not only sell a Jackson home but the Jackson quality of life too through the Jackson Certified Program. Experience Jackson and the Jackson Area Association of Realtors (JAAR) would like to congratulate all 14 realtor/affiliate member offices for proving their dedication to the Jackson Community by becoming Jackson Certified.

“Learning more about my Jackson community by becoming Jackson Certified has made me a better realtor and ambassador of Jackson,” says Jason Wright, Howard Hanna. “I am now able to sell not only a home but the quality of life in Jackson to those home buyers with no previous connection to our community. Jackson has so many great hidden treasures and being Jackson Certified helps me sell Jackson more every day!”

Before the JAAR Challenge launched in January of 2016, there were 5 previously Jackson Certified realtor/affiliate member offices. At the end of February, Experience Jackson’s outreach and partnership with JAAR resulted in 9 newly Jackson Certified realtor/affiliate member offices including the JAAR office. 

Jackson Certified is an online and interactive community trivia program that challenges individuals and organizations to learn more about Jackson County, enhance community pride, and improve quality of life. The online trivia game consists of 30 questions. Quiz takers must answer at least 25 questions correctly in order to become Jackson Certified. All trivia answers can be found on, where study materials are available for download.

Every organization’s path to Jackson Certification is different and consists of a specified number of individual certifications and/or team building exercises. Interested individuals or organizations are asked to contact Experience Jackson at
