Jason O'Beirne

With 20 years in the business, and over 1,000 closed transactions, Jason is a consistent top producer and market expert. Jason has a reputation for selling real estate in some of Chicago’s most dynamic neighborhoods and specializes in everything from helping a first-time buyer or seller, to guiding someone through the luxury market. Jason has sold over $500 million in Chicago real estate, averaging 100 sales a year, and his business continues to grow. As Senior Vice President of Sales at Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty, Jason consistently ranks among the top agents in the firm. Jason has invaluable market knowledge, pricing expertise, and years of construction, architecture, and design experience, as well as a large circle of peers and brokers that he calls on frequently, and an excellent reputation for closing deals that make all parties happy. Jason credits his success to the quality of his work: "I operate from the mindset that this is a what you know business, not a who you know business." When he’s not working, Jason volunteers, hits the gym, and enjoys live music—he has played in several Chicago bands over the years and makes an annual trip to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Fest. His favorite time is spent on breakfast adventures and park explorations with his two kids. Ever the strategist, he also enjoys chess.

I feel fortunate to have found an A-team of hard workers with complementary skill sets: Each person’s contribution allows us to get better every day, together. We’re a boutique agency that brings diverse talent to every project. My team includes a graphic designer who used to own an art gallery, a project coordinator with deep analytical experience who’s also been in Wendy’s television ads, a marketer who grew a major craft brewery’s social media following by 10,000%, and an office administrator who studied vocal performance and may as well have a master’s degree in multitasking. Learn more about each of them below.

“Jason and his team provide a level of service that is extremely difficult to find in the industry—better than any others I have worked with during my 15 years (and $250 million+ in residential sales) in the business. He works tirelessly for his clients, is very responsive and well organized, and always goes the extra mile to make sure that his clients achieve their goals. In addition, Jason knows the Chicago market and pricing dynamics better than just about anyone that I have worked with. He is a great resource and someone that I look forward to working with in the future.”

William, Developer

“We noticed that you took over the listing across the street. Once your name was on the sign, we had no doubt in our mind that it would sell!! Thanks for everything you do for the neighborhood. It is much appreciated!!”

Dani and Charlie, Past Buyers

“Choosing the right agent for your particular needs is one of the most important steps in the real estate process. Words cannot describe how lucky I am to work with Jason. He is a top-performing agent, knowledgeable, professional, well organized, very responsive, and has a great personality, too.”

Marcin, Builder

“I’ve been asked a few times to provide testimonials for my peers. Jason is one of the few I’d jump to do. When I work with Jason I know the deal will be handled ethically. That’s saying a lot in our field. Real estate isn’t that transparent and I think Jason brings trust to the closing table. His communication skills are exceptional! Any broker will tell you that it’s a key ingredient to a successful deal. Jason is one of the good guys!”

Alley, Agent

“Jason and his team (Mike in our case) were fantastic throughout the process! They were available/flexible and knowledgeable both about the area and the home-buying process… Highly recommend!”

Raju and Lindsey, Buyers

We really enjoyed working with you, and would recommend you to our friends and family without hesitance. None of our friends or coworkers in the city had an agent they could recommend to us, which says a lot. In an industry where the consumer has a lot of information at their fingertips and can navigate plenty on their own, you managed to provide tremendous value. Heartfelt thanks and we look forward to working with you again in the future!
