ABOUT THE MADRONA GROUP
John L. Scott Lynnwood Real Estate Agents
WE ARE ROOTED IN PUGET SOUND REAL ESTATE
Joe and Jason have been friends for over 15 years and they decided to found The Madrona Group Real Estate Team based on vision of having deep roots in the community and strong local knowledge , appyling superior marketing and use of technology, and a mastery of negotiation practices.
Both founders were born and raised in the area. Joe Kiser spent his early years growing up in Edmonds, WA a place he still loves today. Jason Fox was born in Everett, WA and has spent his years living in Everett, Seattle, Bothell, and most recently the Meadowdale neighborhood in Lynnwood, WA.
We don’t just say we are local we were born local.
Prior to getting into real estate Jason was a real estate marketing coach and Joe was a finance manager for a top producing auto broker.
As they built their team they wanted to find team members who aligned with their vision and could also help them carry it forward.
Chris had been working on his own in real estate for years while also working as a team captain for a local 5 star steak house. He realized that his unique skill set in superior customer service aligned with the vision that his long time friends Joe and Jason had created for The Madrona Group.
When they asked him to join their team it felt like the perfect fit.

MEET THE TEAM
JOE KISER GREW UP IN THE PUGET SOUND AREA RAISED BY PARENTS FROM SMALL TOWN KANSAS.
His summers were spent helping out on my grandparents’ farm and gas station. He was taught the importance of good mid-west values like working hard and always treating people with respect and honesty. He was also taught that his word is the most important thing you have to offer anyone and he strives to follow that principle every day.
Like most people, he fell into his sales career by accident. He started in the car business immediately after high school as means to paying for college. Joe excelled in the customer service aspect of helping customers find the vehicle that fit their needs. He then quickly gravitated toward the operational side of the business learning the details of solidifying loans. After several years in the car business, he went to work for the financial side of the business managing dealer accounts and strengthening relationships for them.
Joe moved into consulting for home installation after deciding that he valued the relationship he built with clients more than with a corporation. He has sold high-end window systems and roofing for both currently lived in homes and new home custom construction. He enjoys and thrives in the one on one relationship and has been told by many that he should transition into real estate.
One of his greatest assets is the ability to create and foster trusting relationships, to really get to know his clients so he can help meet their needs and desires. His mom has always said that he has never met a stranger. His friends have nicknamed him “The Mayor” as it seems everywhere he goes he tends to bump into a friend or meet a new friend. More than anything, he feels that this sense of ease and comfort and trust with others has been the backbone of his sales career; he has never considered himself as a salesman.
In the words of Lou Holtz, “people don’t care what you know, until they know you care”.
Growing up, he saw his dad as an example of this in his role as a local small business owner in insurance. he would watch as he stopped and visited his customers. He stayed connected and was in touch with big events in their lives. He was their friend and as he worked for them, he put them at ease. He focused on building lifetime relationships not sales and numbers. As their agent, he built confidence through professionalism and consistency.
Joe’s desire is the same: to build lifelong relationships with his clients through helping them with their real estate needs.
No matter where you are in your real estate cycle – be it your first home, downsizing as children leave the nest, vacation cabin in the mountains or investment for retirement – he wants to share in your excitement.
If you are interested in finding out if you and Joe can create a Win/Win business relationship please contact him.
REAL ESTATE SKILLSNEGOTIATION
Jason Fox was born in Everett, WA currently lives in the Meadowdale neighborhood in Lynnwood and has lived in different parts of the Puget Sound area in between.
As a kid Jason would spend hours and hours by taping graph paper together to create huge plat maps and meticulously graph out family estates. From the gourmet kitchens, swimming pools, horse stables and of course the heli-pad. Always trying to perfect his future dream home.
“I love Washington State and do not believe that you can find anything more beautiful than the San Juan Islands during a Washington summer”
His love for the area makes it an effortless transition to show people that are relocating the natural beauties that the Greater Puget Sound area has to offer.
Jason has been in the real estate industry for over 15 years. During that time he has worked with 100’s of the top real estate agents in the country assisting them with their marketing efforts. Forming and selling 3 companies that offered marketing services to the real estate industry. And as an award-winning real estate agent.
“Clients today want to know that you are at the top of your game in technology, marketing, and negotiating.”
What he loves about real estate is finding the missing piece to the puzzle that completes each transaction, and ultimately leaving his clients in a better situation. Maybe it is finding the right house, or perhaps it is finding the right financing, or maybe it is negotiating a unique condition or trying to figure out how to get work done to maximize ROI on a sale.
If Jason can create a win-win home sale scenario for his clients and reduce the stress of what can be a stressful experience while staying in communication with his clients and keeping them fully informed of what is happening than he has done his job.
Having formed and run 3 business and the selling them for a profit ensures that his negotiation skills are sharp. In his last business Jason was regularly voted as one of the most informative real estate blogs in the country at teaching real estate professionals marketing techniques.

Chris Fiamengo was born and raised locally in the Shoreline area, formally known as Seattle. He spent the weekdays with his mom who was a hard working bartender at the time and weekends with his dad who lived and worked in Seattle as a prominent artist and sign writer. His first job was helping out his grandpa with his HVAC business. This was where he learned that relationships were the key to any good business. If you take care of the customer the rest takes care of itself.
Wanting to make money to afford his first car he needed a job so he started working in a fast food restaurant. A friend of his at the time urged him to get out of that fast food restaurant and apply at a local fine dining restaurant as a busser and he got the job. This started a lifelong passion of high end guest first service that has been the keystone of his interactions with everyone he meets in business today. Through the years he has managed service teams, worked in event planning, and executed the highest levels of service in fine dining as a Captain. Wanting to leverage his skills in service and relationship building Chris started his real estate career in 2015.
Getting off to a quick start as rookie of the year at John L. Scott and laying a foundation locally as an agent that cares for his clients the utmost Chris was searching for a way to transition into become a top producer in real estate that he always envisioned. As fate would have it the opportunity to join The Madrona Group presented itself. With an opportunity to integrate world class technology and “old school” customer service while partnering with like-minded and talented real estate professionals the move was a no-brainer.
Chris understands that when people are buying or selling real estate there is something going on in their lives. Chris has a genuine desire to know your personal story and what your goals are in real estate. His innate drive for client satisfaction coupled with his attention to details are huge assets to his clients. Chris is an advocate for his clients in every way. Personal relationships are paramount in his business and it shows with the level of care and sincerity his clients receive. Having a hyper-local expertise in the area in which he lives and works holds a huge importance for him, as well. You get nothing, but the best service and attitude of positivity with Chris.
Chris lives in Lynnwood with his two boys, his wife, and Golden retriever. He is an advocate in the community for growth and development. In his spare time you will find him celebrating all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer with hiking, camping, and backpacking throughout the many trails and mountains that are so accessible.
“This is one of the most beautiful places to live and I love it when I can help people set down permanent roots.”
