Clients are saying:
"Jason is the very BEST! He is incredibly talented, hardworking, personable, and extremely dedicated to his clients. As first time home buyers, Jason listened to exactly what my Husband and I were looking for in a home and offered valuable, practical advice. Unlike other agents who send a mass amount of listings to go through, Jason took the time to review listings prior to sending them to make sure they would appeal to us. Once we started viewing properties, Jason took us to multiple properties in the same day and made the entire experience fun. Every place he showed us was a bit different than the next and provided us with so many different options. Jason is truly an expert at what he does. He is a master negotiator and very well respected amongst other realtors. Because of Jason's expertise, my Husband and I purchased our dream condo. I highly recommend Jason as the BEST and most knowledgeable agent."
"Jason did an incredible job for my wife and I in helping to find us our home. He was always professional, responsive, and willing to answer any questions we had as first time home buyers. We really appreciate him sharing all of his expertise and look forward to using him again when it's time for us to upsize."
"Jason was amazing. We couldn't have worked with anyone better.
We were deciding what realtor to work with when we met Jason at an open house. He called us 5 minutes later after we emailed him! That kind of response spoke volumes of his dedication to his clients and the level of priority he places on this work. He worked diligently to find us properties over the following weekends and we saw over 15 places in the span of two weeks.
Jason was quick to respond to viewing requests as well. Sometimes we were the first to see a property (super important in a seller's market!).
Jason made us feel like we were his number one client. As first-time home buyers, Jason understood us very well where we were at and worked with us to address our purchasing jitters. He walked us through what to expect and when to expect it. Our attorney fell through in the last second and Jason quickly connected us to a colleague who saved the day. It is clear that Jason is very dedicated to all of his clients.
Most of all, Jason is just a kind and generous person. He shared with us Bulls tickets the night after we closed so we could celebrate. We're so glad to have worked with him and look forward to working with him in the future!
First time home buyers and seasoned home buyers, I highly recommend working with him. He is knowledgable (is a real estate attorney), works hard, and is dedicated to his clients."
"Jason is so incredible at his job, and we are beyond grateful for everything he did for us. The work he puts in for his clients is more than I would expect from any broker. He genuinely cares about his clients and reminded us again and again that we would not settle for anything less than achieving our goals, and finding our dream home. I would call our situation challenging, but Jason immediately developed a strategy to overcome any obstacles we had. Another agent tried to sell our condo for 10 months prior to Jason with no success. Jason sold it in less than a week, and the process was seamless. Also, he sold it for the maximum value we could have possibly got out of it. He was also wonderful to work with in finding our new home. Of the four neighborhoods we were considering, he found us a wonderful home, with everything we were looking for in our #1 choice neighborhood. We also purchased our new home $40K under budget! And again, the closing process was seamless and incredibly fast. Jason is so knowledgable, patient, nice and fun to work with, and truly amazing at his job (process, organization, negotiation -- all of it). Working with Jason was a really great experience for us from start to finish, and we will highly recommend him to anyone we know buying or selling a home."
"One of the best decisions I ever made was using Jason Newman as my realtor. He knows Chicago as well as anyone I've ever met. When my fiancee and I began our search Jason asked us to keep an open mind as to different areas and we're so glad we did as we love where we live! Thanks Jason, we would've never found this place without you."
