We worked with Jason, specifically, but one of the benefits of the experience was that the entire team was available to help, resulting in valuable advice that we received throughout the process from multiple parties. Jason did a good job of coaching us throughout the process of our purchase, including: Understanding and helping us prioritize the attributes most important to us during our search. Focusing our search on properties that fell within our parameters and throughout the spectrum of our budget. Providing market comps during a period of low activity where it was tough to find similar properties. Communicating well with the the agent representing the seller to come to an agreement. Connecting us with a network of service providers necessary to do our diligence on the property and move towards a close (inspectors, attorneys, mortgage brokers, specialists). This included recommending a specific attorney who was well-versed in local law regarding a potential issue with the landlord of the apartment we had been renting. Perhaps most importantly, he advised us throughout our negotiation on what issues we should care about, what should be less important to us, and what he typically sees in the market. The homebuying experience is a consuming, emotional one, especially for the first time buyer. One of the things we appreciated most was Jason's honesty throughout the process. Some of our expectations of what the seller should do were correct, but others were not or were off-market. Jason helped us understand what fell into which category. The willingness to provide us with honest feedback rather than telling us what we want to hear ultimately helped us push through and close on a tough transaction that could have easily gone sideways. The result is that we are thrilled with our new home while being comfortable that we knew the issues and expenses we were at risk of dealing with in the intermediate-term. I would highly recommend the Real Group RE Team for anybody's real estate transaction.
It was impressed how he thought of some search criterion that I had not considered. I recommend Jason's attention to detail and customer service qualities.” Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity - Patty B.
Jason has everything you'd want when searching for someone to help you buy or sell a home. He's professional, organized, smart and caring. He's not just about making the sale - he's there to help and protect his clients and that comes through in everything he does. When it comes to inspections, he's not afraid to hear what's going on with a property. He takes the information and uses it to help his clients get the right deal. But what you'll remember about Jason is his quick wit and great perspective. Not many people can take a business situation and make it fun while still remaining organized and professional.” - Michelle Teague, Home Inspector, Owner - All About Homes
This was the smoothest, easiest process of selling a home we have ever experienced. Such great professionals but more so importantly friendly and accommodating. We can't express how much we would recommend them both!
He is intelligent, experienced, thorough, responsive and engaging. He has an analytic approach to real estate that is uncommon and led to our very successful selling and buying transactions. He was always spot-on in advising us how to handle the pricing of our home, how to maximize a multiple bid situation, traditional and non-traditional negotiation variables and overall closing of the deal. In addition to his remarkable skills, he has an amazing team of colleagues and referrals. Jason provided recommendations for a staging consultant, a lender and an attorney, each of which were all-stars in their own right. I cannot recommend Jason highly enough.
Jason was able to offer me a variety of options and help guide me to the final purchase by listening and knowing my situation. Great people to work with. I would highly recommend Jason and his team to anyone else interested in buying or selling a home.
Our condo went from market to close in exactly 60 days for 99% of the asking price - simply amazing! Thank you for doing such a wonderful job!
His enthusiasm and positive approach is contagious. If only I had Jason to help with all tough decisions. Working with Jason Finn was such a rewarding experience - one that continues to reward me every time I step inside my new home and know that it's mine.

Jason did an excellent job of helping to educate us and assist us with the overall process. Though his expertise, combined with Baird & Warner's website, we were able to quickly sort through hundreds of listings to hone in on properties that met our needs. We found that his prior experience as a consultant was a significant asset. Jason focused on building a long-term relationship with us and worked hard to provide us with the information and tools necessary to make our decision without attempting to steer our choice. Jason did a great job. We'll certainly reach out to him next time we're in the market, and I'm happy to recommend him to friends, family and colleagues.” - John R.
He was available to me and my husband around the clock, answering our many questions via text or email quickly and patiently. He has wonderful relationships with other agents, which helps make for a smoother negotiation process. He understands the myriad relationships and nuances that make for successful real estate transactions and brings his client-focused business background to bear on your situation. We also appreciated Jason’s candid approach. He will provide his expert counsel on everything from pricing to neighborhoods to seller/buyer psychology in a gentle yet straightforward way. His honesty set us straight in a few instances. You need that level of trust and transparency with your agent when it comes to such a crucial life moment. We consider ourselves lucky that we ended up with Real Group and Jason and felt taken care every step of the way.
It was largely because of his efforts that we were able to sell our old home and close on our new one on the same day. Jason was extremely thorough in his analysis of the real estate market in our area and in his marketing of our home to prospective buyers. Jason’s reliability and his attention to detail alleviated much of our stress and anxiety as we knew we were in very capable hands. I would highly recommend Jason to anyone who is looking to sell or buy.” - Christopher V.
He and his team are professional, responsive, and knowledgeable, and I will recommend them to anyone who will listen!
He does not blindly follow the masses in his approach -- he does it BETTER. This might make you nervous if you are prone to just go along with the crowd, but Jason's results speak for themselves. You ignore his wisdom at your peril. Following Jason's advice, we sold in less than 4 days at nearly 5% above our asking. We couldn't have been happier!!
Jason earned that trust with us. We've recommend him to others and will use him again. Jason's strengths are not just about making your home look good. His data focused approach to pricing, marketing and negotiating made the difference in our sale and led us to getting a very good price. He's honest, up front and experienced in the Chicago market. On top of this. he's a pretty nice guy too.
Have us a few suggestions and we had an offer 3 days after listing with him. We were under contract within two weeks after listing with him. He is very professional and a pleasure to do business with. We would definitely use him again!
After working with Jason Finn, I would never go, without one in future purchases. He couldn't have made it any easier on me especially with the dynamic of my purchase with me being Florida and only having weekends in Chicago to find my home. - Brad C.
He was extremely respectful and attentive to our needs. We were confident in his ability to help us navigate these transactions and keep the complexity to a minimum. Jason was terrific about answering all our questions.
He has a smart, business type approach to the marketing and pricing of the property that sets you up for success. His knowledge of the marketplace adds to the ability to price the property and receive an amount close to asking. In my case he successfully got us 98% of asking price. He assists you with all aspects of the sale process, from staging the property to minor enhancements that reflect the properties true value. He leverages technology to aid the sale process and to allow the seller to stay engaged with weekly statistical analysis of the property’s performance. I highly recommend Jason for the sale of your property.
