Jamal Hudson is a goal-oriented real estate agent with expertise in the home finance arena. He exudes professionalism from the first minute he speaks with potential clients. Jamal is originally from Brooklyn, N.Y., but has enjoyed living in southeast Virginia for more than 15 years. Whether he’s coaching a team of youngsters, assisting a client find the right home or taking in foster children, this agent can usually be found helping someone in Hampton Roads.
He studied business management and computer science at Saint Augustine’s University in Raleigh, N.C. Jamal then became a troubleshooter at Texas Instruments for their electronic devices, where he further improved his technological skills. Later he worked for the Texas Department of Corrections for more than four years honing his conflict management and interpersonal communication skills.
Shortly after looking to buy his own home in Virginia Beach, Jamal became interested in the home mortgage business. Having a natural knack for numbers allowed him to excel as a loan originator. “I’m a math guy,” says Jamal. This role allowed him to help many clients by showing them how they could save money with the right loan programs. “I liked it,” he continues, “I enjoyed putting deals together and working with people.” While there, he helped the company more than double its original size, and became sales manager within only a few years. He focused on originating loans himself while encouraging the entire staff to meet their goals as well.
Getting his real estate license was a natural transition for this well-rounded professional who has assisted clientele with their housing needs now for nearly a decade. “Finance and mortgages fit hand in hand with real estate.” Jamal receives a great deal of joy from helping people achieve their goals of home ownership, especially those who may have thought owning a home was not even possible. He also likes being a part of such a life-changing event. “If you do things right… you can help people, and at the end of the day that’s what it’s about.” First-time buyers are one of his specialties. He likes the fact that there is no limit to the amount of people he can assist in real estate. Clients who’ve had the pleasure of working with this agent admire his strong work ethic, reliability and dedication.
Having a finance background makes Jamal quite an asset when buying a home. “It gives me the advantage because I know both sides of the fence.” Understanding how the financing process works allows this agent to give his clients inside knowledge. While he typically stays out of the way when it comes to running interference in mortgage-related issues he says, “I can give guidance. If we run into fires, it allows me to be able to put the fires out.” He recalls purchasing his first home, and notes that things didn’t go smoothly. “I’ll never let this happen to anyone else,” affirms Jamal. “People aren’t just numbers and dollars signs to me.”
This devoted husband and father of three always strives for improvement, even in his personal life. Jamal reads motivational books and has rediscovered the joy of working out, which has led him on a journey toward getting in better physical shape. One of the most rewarding things for this New York Giants fan is knowing he and his wife can provide a positive environment for foster children with siblings who may normally be separated. This freshwater fishing enthusiast loves spending time with his family, coaching youth basketball, football and baseball teams, attending sporting events and playing chess.
