Castro Property Group, comprised of American Idol finalist Jason Castro, Michael Castro and Matt Keeton, has affiliated with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Lakewood office in Dallas, Coldwell Banker said in a news release.
Jason Castro, the fourth-place finalist on Season 7 of American Idol, is a native of East Dallas.
Following his time on American Idol, he released three albums and toured internationally for several years before settling down in Dallas, the release said.
He began his real estate career by renovating homes throughout Lakewood, eventually earning his real estate license to sell and negotiate his own home transactions.
Castro’s brother, Michael, is also a touring artist who settled back in Dallas after living in Nashville and Los Angeles for many years.
He began his real estate career investing in residential real estate and earned his real estate license, shortly after. In addition to forming the Castro Property Group, Castro and his brother formed the Castro band. Their latest single, Forever Texas, was commissioned by VisitDallas as the city’s official theme song.
Matt Keeton, a graduate from Dallas Baptist University with a degree in kinesiology, worked alongside nationally-recognized physicians, physical therapists and professional organizations at the start of his healthcare career. Keeton then transitioned into real estate sales after more than a decade in healthcare and fitness.
“A big cultural shift is happening at Coldwell Banker, and the focus on technology and agent empowerment is driving this. I was blown away by the seamless back-end of Coldwell Banker’s tech resources. It’s a true plug and play system,” Jason Castro said in the news release.
“The listing concierge service also sets them apart from every other broker. This is available to every agent and is incredible leverage for the agent looking to grow their business,” he said.
Formerly with Modtown Realty Group, Jason Castro has proven residential real estate expertise throughout the Lakewood and East Dallas area with $6 million in closed sales volume in his first full year in real estate sales.
Upon transitioning to Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Castro formed Castro Property Group to better serve the needs of his growing client base.
“We are happy to have Jason, Michael and Matt join the Coldwell Banker family. Their real estate experience, knowledge and passion for the industry exemplifies all that Coldwell Banker stands for,” said Frank Obringer, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Dallas/Fort Worth.
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Dallas has 11 offices and approximately 880 affiliated agents serving Dallas/Fort Worth.
