I am Jason Swaney and I have been a licensed Real Estate Agent since 2004. I was born and raised in upstate New York. I moved to Prince William County in 1998. My goals is to provide all my clients with an outstanding level of customer service and support during the entire real estate transaction from start to finish. Honest and integrity are two characteristics that have helped me build a strong business of repeat clients and referrals.

When I am not selling Real Estate, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our 12-year-old daughter on our boat cruising the beautiful Potomac River.

I would like to be a Director at PWAR so that I am able to mentor new agents, become a voice for agents in our community and take an active role in education and networking opportunities for our real estate community.
