"Jason researched my Lincoln Park condo, listed it on a Friday and we had multiple offers and chose one 99% of asking price 36 hours later. He then got us an unbelievable deal on our current "forever-home" in the suburbs and saved us thousands on our purchase price. My wife and I have referred him to personal friends and they have all sold and closed happily with Jason. He's a true professional without being stuffy and robotic, we now consider him a friend and realtor for life....thanks Jason!"

"Jason is wonderful. A big help during a stressful time. A special friendship has developed thru this transaction."

"Jason has lived in both the suburbs and city of Chicago so has an impressive knowledge of neighborhoods, amenities, and commute times. He is hard working, very responsive, and has an uncanny ability to send calming status updates just when you're beginning to feel anxious about negotiations. It also helps that he's a great, honest guy!"

"Jason is one of a kind! We randomly met him at an open house when we were casually starting to look for our first house. His laid back, genuine demeanor sold us immediately on him. I didn't feel like he would be over the top, and tell us what we wanted to hear... he wasn't! He honestly had our best interest at all times. Jason helped us buy our first condo, sold it within 24- hours with three offers. Buy our second home. He has also helped family and friends VERY quickly sell their homes. I would 100% work with Jason again!"

"Greatest realtor around! Jason was very patient and helpful throughout our entire home buying process. We cannot wait to refer him to others."

"Jason was fantastic, informative and very dedicated to helping me find my ideal home!"

"Jason is wonderful. A big help during a stressful time. A special friendship has developed thru this transaction."

"We were about a month and a half away from our wedding day, and thought we would start looking at some properties just to get our feet wet. However, Jason quickly found us a once in a lifetime townhouse in our favorite part of Bucktown. We jumped in with an offer while only a month out from the wedding. We never expected this, but he made the process so simple. Needless to say Jason helped us navigate this side of two stressful situations and we closed seven days after our wedding. Over a year later we couldn't be happier and are so thankful we put our trust in Jason."

"Jason Merel has been a business partner for years and has helped buy/sell real estate not only for my friends and family, but myself personally. Jasons experience and knowledge of the market got my Lincoln Park condo listed on a Friday and sold for full list price on Sunday after he ran multiple showings with multiple offers. He then parlayed that into an unbelievable offer for our new home in the suburbs. We got our house for over $50,000 BELOW list price and it would not have happened without Jason staying on top of the other agent letting them know he had buyers ready toclose asap. Whenever friends and family need a realtor to help navigate through the crazy world of Chicagoland real estate hes the first person I call."

"Jason Merel is a great guy to have on your team when you are buying or selling ahouse. Jason is relentless in his quest to get the deal done, and to get it done right. He has an absolutely amazing amount of energy, and will work, work, work till he finds a way to get the job done. I have done a number of deals with Jason as the cooperating broker, and each time he was not only a pleasure to work with, but the one guy who never lost sight of the client's ultimate goal. I have even used Jason myself as a listing broker, and was more than satisfied with his service and his commitment. We had a tough situation and Jason found a creative way to make the deal work for everyone. I'd highly recommend him for your real estate needs!"

"Jason,I would like to express a special thank you as a friend and my realtor. Jason as your client, you were extremely professional, courteous, informative and efficient in finding me a home. Your customer service showed to be above and beyond, frankly out of this world. For several months, you were proactive, diligent with sending me listings that were personalized in style based upon understanding my needs and what I was looking for. Following each phone call, I walked away more optimistic that my dream would come true in you finding me a home that I loved. When I was ready to give up, you listened to my concerns, addressed my needs, were persistent and diligent with finding inventory that was limited in the market. In addition, your forcefulness, compassion and professionalism along with out-going personality kept me on track with my dream, which proved to be successful! I firmly believe that if it was not for you, Jason Merel, I wouldnt be a current homeowner today. I am grateful for your services and friendship. I high encourage you provide my contact information to anyone looking to work with you. Its extremely important that consumers be educated and informed of their options and look no further, YOU, are the key to success in finding a dream home!Thanks again,Kelly GumbinerVice President/Branch Manager, Citibank"

"We started working with Jason Merel because we knew him in high school and had similar connections, but thededication and perseverance Jason had during our house hunting extended beyond anything we would expect, evenfrom family. Jason worked with us for almost a year, and we were trying clients :-) He got to know exactly what wewanted, and tirelessly worked with us to uncover what we needed, as well. He always made our showingsworthwhile, and after we started with a broad search to determine our combined preferences, Jason helped to narrow our searches as the weeks (and months) went on, to guarantee we were seeing homes that may definitely be "the one", every time. Once we found it, he worked hard for us, and we felt as if we were all going through this together as one team. I will recommend Jason to everyone looking to buy or sell a home, and won't use anyone else for my future real estate needs.Thank you,Adrianna Schneider, LEED APSolutions Engineer - AECAdvanced Solutions, Inc."

"My wife and I used Jason for the sale of our Lincoln Park condo and then purchase of our Lincolnshire single family house. Not only did he get our condo staged, listed and offer accepted (over list price!) over one weekend, he negotiated an amazing deal on our house purchase, allowing us to afford our dream neighborhood and school districts. I have since referred other friends to Jason and they all have glowing reviews about their sales and purchases.
Thank you so much Jason!"
