The CenterPointe Story

An unwavering mentality turned into an unstoppable mission.

Born to succeed.

J. Clint Jameson has always been the type to strive for more. As a success-oriented individual from the very beginning, he knew he was going places—even if he wasn’t exactly sure where.

Eegee's | Mesa, AZ

Humble beginnings taught Clint how to do a lot with a little. He prodded, pestered, and persevered his way up the ranks through a variety of entry-level odd jobs until in 1996, while still a senior at the University of Arizona, he landed a financial position at Canyon Ranch Enterprises, the development arm of one of the most recognized health and fitness resorts in the world. Prior to that, Clint’s dream was to move to New York and work on Wall Street, but this opportunity opened his eyes to real estate development, and he never looked back.

At Canyon Ranch, he buried himself in finance work, but he was still itching to take on a bigger role with the team. So, in addition to his day-job, he started taking autoCAD courses at night, doing whatever it took to get an expanded role. Then, his opportunity came in the form of the Hacienda Del Mar hotel in Cabo San Lucas wanting Canyon Ranch Enterprises to consult on its new day spa facility. It was too small of a project for most of the team to consider—except the eager Clint, who took it on and knocked it out of the park.

In 1999, seeking new challenges and wanting to experience different types of deals, Clint landed a spot at the renowned Evergreen Development in Phoenix, and was handed $30 million worth of Walgreens projects on Day 1… Talk about sink or swim.

"It doesn't matter how astute you are, the computations you do, or how many questions you ask—if you aren't in the jungle, you won't know the tiger."

Clint was always driven to begin with. But he became relentless. He realized within his first year at Evergreen that he wanted to start his own development company and told himself he had to work on 50 projects before he felt like he had a firm grasp on all aspects of development. And in 2006, after seven years of being a sponge at Evergreen, Clint decided he was ready to do something he knew he wanted to do all along:

Become a development maverick.
 

Clint was ready to go rogue, but he knew he didn’t have the acquisition experience he’d need to succeed. So, he teamed up with the esteemed Jason Haun, a top-notch acquisition expert as relentless as Clint was, and together they began to build something new. 
 

After a lot of planning, Clint and Jason quit their jobs and on June 16, 2007, officially formed CenterPointe Development Group, marking the beginning of the entrepreneurial journey.

 

But it wouldn’t be a dream if it wasn’t difficult. After the Great Recession set the team back in 2008, Jason decided to pursue another opportunity, while Clint chose to press on with CenterPointe. To this day, Clint still feels fortunate that prior to Jason’s departure, he introduced Clint to a superior site selection process that Clint would eventually spend thousands of hours on, refining it into one of his biggest competitive advantages today.

"I’m going to climb this mountain, and either you are going to see me waving from the top or dead on the side. Either way, I’m not coming back.”

Clint continued on his own with CenterPointe for seven years after Jason’s departure, until late 2014, when he took the opportunity to join forces with fellow development entrepreneur Matt Ladendorf, whose skill set synergized with Clint’s beautifully. While the two eventually decided to pursue their own unique paths and goals, the partnership saw phenomenal results for CenterPointe, accounting for 30 completed projects in total.
 
Today, Clint has closed more than 50 deals and CenterPointe has become known as one of the most distinguished commercial real estate development partners in the western region.
 
Because Clint decided to be the exception. To do commercial real estate a different way. A better way. The right way.

"An immediate reward for a lack of discipline is a fun day at the beach. A future reward for having discipline is owning the beach.”

Clint’s natural grit and determination paired with a deadset belief in manifesting his own future has allowed him to think harder and work smarter since the beginning, and today, it has brought endless growth and success to client after client—as well as himself along the way.
 
And if we’ve learned anything from Clint’s past, it’s that CenterPointe is just getting started.
