Meet the Agent

Century 21 Fine Homes & Estates Beggins Enterprises

Behind any successful professional, you’ll usually discover a strong, focused individual who does what is required to help his clients reach their goals. That is exactly who I am. Beginning by carefully listening to my clients and continuing throughout the transaction with honesty, open communication and patience, I work hard to achieve my clients’ objectives. I have an uncanny ability to understand my clients’ goals and my meticulous follow-up on all details helps me to ensure their success.

DRIVEN ~ TENACIOUS ~ EXPERIENCED ~ LOCAL KNOWLEDGE are the key factors that drive me every day to be the best at what I do. I am striving to become a top producer in the Longboat Key & Sarasota real estate industry through hard work, experience, drive and a desire to be the best . I’m proud of my State, my community and where I come from, and proud of the fine properties my clients have entrusted me to market. I never forget “You have a choice”. Together with my buyers and sellers, I work with them to get the job done. I naturally build relationships with my clients that ensures that when a business deal is concluded, the basis for a long lasting friendship has been established. That I believe is a pillar for a long lasting career in this industry.

Originally from Clermont, FL, I’m a proud 7th generation Floridian. I currently live on the shores of Sarasota Bay on Longboat Key with my unbelievably talented wife Adrian, our two dogs- Mya (13yr old Golden Retriever) and Timmy Tebow (9yr old Chihuahua) and our newest addition, our first born child Mr. Jackson Benjamin Griffin (1yr). He is absolutely our world and our lives have been nothing but enhanced by loving our sweet baby boy. We truly enjoy and are thankful for every second of working, living and playing here on Longboat Key and we see a loving future raising our son here on the island. Some of my passions are- Selling Real Estate, My Family, Being on the Water, Sports (Playing & Following), Music, Traveling, Sunsets, Culture, Food, People, Friends, The State of Florida, Enjoying Life, Gator Sports, Rays Baseball and My Cabin in North Carolina.

When I'm Not Selling Real Estate - I should be at the beach, on the water or traveling. Why You Should Read My Reviews - I provide first class service and knowledge. I build relationships with my customers through trust, honesty and dedication. I have established myself as a top agent not only by attaining results for a variety of clients, but through my commitment to the profession.

If your thinking of buying or selling in my area, please give me a call and let me earn your business! I would be truly honored given the opportunity!

Having Jesse as our RE agent was a really pleasurable experience. He was very knowledgeable of the market we were looking in, showed use properties in a range of styles and prices and was great at answering our questions, including a referral to an outstanding Federal Credit Union for our mortgage. During the negotiation process, Jesse always was on top of things, giving us his personal take and advising us on our offers and tactics. Both my wife and I now consider Jesse not only our go-to realtor, but also a good friend- Dale

Jesse is an excellent realtor. He was very aggressive, timely and made our purchase his top priority. After having an unsuccessful experience with another realtor for one year I would not recommend anyone else. Jesse is simply the best!- Becky

We were new to Sarasota...Jesse went above and beyond for our family!!! We went back and forth on whether we were going to buy or rent and he never stopped looking for us!! After several months of looking at every water front property in Longboat, Lido, and Birdkey we ended up buying a lot!! Jesse is the kindest, most appreciative and hardworking agent you will find in Sarasota!! - Vicki

Jesse Griffin is a real estate agent who goes above and beyond the call of duty for his clients. Jesse recently sold my vacation home. Living in New York, selling a house long distance would normally be an adventure that no one looks forward to beginning. However, Jesse kept me informed every step of the way, from showings to offers. He made my “long-distance adventure” simple and easy. He was a pleasure to do business with, and I highly recommend him. If you’re interested in selling or buying property, Jesse Griffin is the one to contact! You won’t regret it! - Eileen

I contacted Mr. Griffin to list my property if Florida. It was under agreement with a highly qualified buyer in 2 days and all tasks to complete closing in a very short time window at full asking price while I was 1500 miles away. Jesse found an estate sale team, contractor, and was available on his phone every time I called! Can’t say enough about his level of commitment! - Stephen
