Spirit Of EXIT!

A portion of every transaction fee collected by EXIT Realty Corp. International is applied to its charitable fund. Through the Spirit of EXIT Dollar-for-Dollar Matching Program, EXIT offices and associates can raise money for local, approved, registered charities and apply to EXIT’s head office to have those funds matched from the company’s pledged pool of funds. To date, EXIT Realty Corp. International has pledged more than $6,000,000 to charity. We have sponsored 19 Habitat for Humanity home builds in Canada and the U.S., and participated in a community revitalization project and the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project. In addition, we have pledged hundreds of thousands of dollars to benefit those hardest hit by Hurricanes Florence, Michael and Irma and tropical storm, Harvey. Many of our real estate professionals are involved at a grassroots level in their communities, and through the Spirit of EXIT Dollar-for-Dollar Matching Program, they’re able to double the impact of the funds they raise where the need is greatest in their own backyards. We’re so proud to support their local efforts

Jason Baldwin, REALTOR®

I’m a born and raised Virginia Beach local and a Real Estate Agent with EXIT Realty Central. Growing up in Virginia Beach I attended high school, college, and even worked in the Virginia film industry prior to entering the real estate market.

Working in that industry not only gave me a chance to do some incredible things but to see just how unique and beautiful Virginia is. I’ve dragged cable through fields in Richmond, hauled gear onto the decks of Navy ships in Norfolk, and even drove camera trucks on the beach in Virginia Beach. In all my travels I’ve found that Virginia and Hampton Roads, in particular, has something for everybody. Whether you’re after the thriving city life or the open beauty of country living, you’re going to find it here.

I will work with you and use any and all of Exit Realty Central’s considerable resources to help you with whatever your real estate goals are.
