Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Logan Square, Chicago, IL.
Highly recommended for anyone seeking to make their first home purchase. Jason considered our every need and came back to us with a comprehensive list of properties that fell within our price range. Jason and is team were highly attentive and responsive throughout the process and I would recommend him to anybody looking to purchase their first home.

Jason was a great agent to work with from the beginning of my search to closing. As a first time buyer, I had a lot of questions during the search, and Jason always responded quickly with accurate information. He also had a wealth of knowledge about various neighborhoods and helped me narrow down my search a lot. The closing process for the sale was bumpy, but Jason was 100% there batting for me. I cannot recommend him enough!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $550K in Bucktown, Chicago, IL.
This is the second home we have sold with the help of the Klopas Stratton Team. We loved working with them. They encouraged us to price above recent sales in our complex due to their expertise and knowledge of the area and market and we had an offer within the week. They did a great job with negotiations and also had great tips to stage our house to really highlight it's features. They were accommodating with our toddler's schedule and coordinated showings as to not disturb our lives too much, while also being available to potential buyers. I'm hoping to never move again:) but if we do, we would definitely use Jason and Sophia. We cannot recommend their services enough!

Jason made being a first time home buyer the best experience I could have asked for. He was incredibly knowledgeable and we always felt like he had our best interest at heart. He was always on the ball, responsive and attentive whether it be emails, contracts or in person meetings. We really felt like he was watching out for us considering our lack of experience in the real estate market. We found him via a referral and I would absolutely hands down refer him to anyone looking for a realtor. Huge thanks to Jason for being such a great resource and supporter throughout the process!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in West Town, Chicago, IL.
We originally listed our Westtown single family home with a friend who’s a broker. When that deal fell through, we interviewed several new brokers before hiring Sofia, and thank god we did! Thanks in large part to her help, we were able to sell our house within 2 weeks of relisting for very close to our listing price. We didn’t know at the time that the buyers were certifiably insane - they tried to shake us down every chance they got, instructed their attorney not to communicate with us for several months, asked for contingency extensions at 6:30 pm the night they expired (several times), insisted on a 3 hour walk-through right before the closing, and were just overall massive jerks, and the most unreasonable people we’ve ever dealt with. If it wasn’t for Sofia, the deal would have fell apart. Sofia worked incredibly hard and every time the sellers would come back with another unreasonable request she would talk us through what to do, and she was always right. She was a total lifesaver and advocate for us, and I really can’t thank her enough.

Klopas Stratton sold my home this year and rented my home 4 years ago. Both experiences exceeded my expectations. The team took over, was incredibly organized, and made a stressful situation very easy! I have recommended Klopas Stratton to numerous friends who have all had amazing experiences. In a market that is crowded with realtors, Klopas Stratton definitely stands out - they are professional, very knowledgeable, incredibly responsive and are true experts in the field.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $400K in East Ukrainian Village, Chicago, IL.
I would highly recommend utilizing Klopas Stratton's expertise when buying or selling a home. Jason helped me find a condo in the East Village in June 2009. He was knew the pros/cons of every location, builders, building materials and finishes. When it came time to rent the unit out in the summer of 2011, Jason had an A+ tenant within days. After the market picked back up during the summer of 2015, I knew there was only one agent to sell my condo. Not only did Jason get me top dollar within 30 days, but he managed the whole process until close. This was the key for me (as I had moved to the suburbs), Jason coordinated the minor repairs, met with vendors and assured everything was handled, so I never had to do ANYTHING.

Jason is a wizard - hands down. He helped me sell my home 4 years ago when the market was terrible, my condo (and comps) were $30k less than what I originally purchased my place for (my neighbors unit was $15k more expensive than mine and they sold for $30k less!) and Jason was still able to get me $30k above my original purchase price! Absolutely saved me. On the flip side of that, I just purchased a home using Jason. In between my last sale, I rented and had an offer accepted. I told my landlord that I found a place and in 30 days I had to be out. At day 28, the seller pulled out and left me with less than 30 days to purchase a place - which is almost impossible. Jason worked his magic, found a place that wasn't listed just yet, I closed in under 25 days, negotiated a price less than asking and it appraised for way more than I paid! No two ways about it - he's one of the good guys and is your advocated when you need one. He knows the market, the people building homes and everything in between.

My husband and I had a fabulous experience working with Chris Johnson. He truly went above and beyond the call of duty in being available and attentive to our needs and desires when searching for our first apartment in Chicago; so much so we actually utilized Chris’ expertise again when we decided to purchase a condo the following year. Chris always comes prepared and is well educated providing us with the necessary information regarding the Chicago housing market and everything we need to know for the purchasing process. For both moves, Chris provided us with numerous options based on the location, size and feel we were going for – he’s a great listener and visionary in helping us narrow in on making our house a home.

I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to purchase a home/condo in the greater Chicago region. I began working with Chris after living in Chicago for roughly 6 months. Not only was Chris helpful with selecting the right area of town, but was extremely knowledgeable about specific streets, areas of interest and activities common to the area. Often while driving to a location I felt as if I had my own personal Yelp adviser, pointing out great restaurants for dates, good shops and of course, close transportation and grocery stores. I was appreciative of his candid feedback and knowledge of the units that we viewed. He was prepared for each showing and cognoscente of the style and type of unites I preferred.

Jason was awesome from the beginning of the process of buying our condo right up to the closing. He was very knowledgeable of the Chicago neighborhoods, and went above and beyond to make both myself and my wife feel comfortable at every stage of the process. We couldn't have asked for more in a buyer's broker. He is highly recommended if you want a smooth transaction. We will be definitely using him for all our future real estate needs in Chicago.

Klopas and Stratton are true professionals: responsive, personable and always had our best interests in mind. Their vast knowledge of the Chicago market made it extremely easy to narrow down our search for the perfect condominium.
From negotiations to closing, Jason kept us informed and helped guide us through the entire process. He continuously proved to be courteous and eager to make our purchase go smoothly and efficiently.
I would HIGHLY recommend Klopas and Strattons to family, friends, and anyone who is looking for the best in the business.

I am a first time home buyer and my experience with Jason was absolutely perfect. I started out with a different Realtor and once I engaged Jason, it was night and day. His responsiveness was key--scheduling showings at all days/times, answering lingering questions, and calling just to check up on me and the whole process. He seems to know the Chicagoland area like the back of his hand and his knowledge on the actual architecture and layout of buildings was huge when deciding on a home. I can't say enough about the guy. He genuinely cares about his clients and has obviously mastered his craft. I will recommend him as much as I can to family/friends.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Logan Square, Chicago, IL.
Jason was an incredibly helpful asset for me as a first time buyer. We saw a number of properties together and he understood what was most important to me. He made sure to explain the pros and cons of each property, including neighborhood, taxes, condo fees, etc.
Once I decided on a property, Jason was quick in communicating with all parties involved. He kept me aware of all communication going on so I was not left in the dark, or wondering where in the process we were.
Even after the purchase, Jason has kept in touch to make sure everything is running smoothly and has suggested companies I could call for various work around the house.
I highly recommend working with Jason.

Bought a home in 2014 in Lake View, Chicago, IL 60657.
I can't say enough about how excellent our experience with Jason Stratton was. We were helping our daughter look for a condo and our main concerns were safety and budget. We feel completely confident with the home we found in Lakeview for her. Jason knows the city neighborhoods and the value of homes in each. He understands the process from beginning to end and really works for the buyer (in this case). He is responsive beyond what is expected. Every time we called or emailed him, he responded immediately. We felt confident that whatever we needed from him, it would happen efficiently, professionally, and competently. The owners of the home we found had already moved out and wanted to do a fast close - Jason didn't miss a beat. He has a wealth of resources to share regarding home inspection, sources for repairs, and how to make things happen. The furnace, AC, and hot water heater needed to be replaced before my daughter could move in, which meant we had to start the process before the official closing. Jason put us in touch with a competent HVAC company and helped with setting up appointments as well as follow through. Getting to the city from where we live is at times a challenge and so we couldn't be on site for some of the measuring and assessments the HVAC company needed to do - Jason took care of it for us. He even read all the minutes of the building association meetings so he could evaluate the management of the building for us. In the end, all went smoothly, from our first trip out viewing homes all over the city, to negotiations, to our final close, and finally to our move in. He facilitated the process with ease and grace....and warmth. We can't imagine how we could have made this all happen without his constant time, attention, and talent. I highly recommend Jason to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. He wants to make it work and knows how; he wants to make you happy and works to make it so; and he does it with a genuine smile.

My wife and I have sold two homes and purchased one with Jason and our experiences were ideal. He was dead-on every time with pricing, comps and competitive options. Jason's responsive communication and energetic outlook at what our opportunities were helped us every step of the way getting through both the home selling and home buying process. We worked together to get a comfortable selling strategy implemented and Jason was always flexible, accommodating and, well... just put up with our unremitting and novice questions at all hours of the day. Jason is a professional, gets the job done and will be our real estate agent again.

Jason Stratton was an excellent realtor. The proof is in the pudding. He marketed our property and got it sold. We needed a realtor who would not be intimidated and could handle the pressure in a high level market. He moved the process quickly and handled everything. I really didn't have to do anything. Jason handled every issue.

Overall the experience working with Jason was flawless. From the first meeting I felt as if Jason understood the local market, as well as my expectations of how I wanted the transaction to proceed. I never once worried about the condo as it was on the market as I was confident that Jason not only would show it in a professional manner, but that he would get the job done at a fair market value.
I would highly suggest that if anyone is looking to sell their unit, contact Jason to at least have a conversation regarding his thoughts on the market and the vision he would bring to the sale.
I worked with Jason on my third real estate transaction (Purchased 2, sold 1) and can easily say that the process was by far the best experience I have received.

This is the second time we have worked with Jayson Stratton in 4 years. He has truly impressed us both times. He had my house under contract in 4 days this past March. He knows the neighborhoods in chicago better than anybody and he knows how to market your house to buyers. He is dead on with price and comps and always seemed to find a way to get more money for us than we were originally asking for.
Round 1 was when he rented that same home back in 2011 within 3 days of it being listed. Lincoln Park top floor duplex with great views. He took the time to understand the lay out and amenities and even encouraged us to raise the original price.
Jayson knows the neighborhoods, understands the clients needs, and he is brutally honest. I wanted someone who could stand by our price. He got us more than expected and his timeline and predictions of both selling and renting were dead on. Sometimes people may not like the truth, but in the end, it matters if you want to get the best $ available with no headaches at closing.
I recommend him over anyone else in the city.

I have been working with Jason and Sophia for over 4 years. Their sophistication, market knowledge, attention to detail, and overall customer service make this team the best that the City has to offer. As a real estate attorney, it is an absolute pleasure to work with brokers and clients as a real team. When working with Jason and Sophia, there is never a question that we are all "working together", and working hard for the best interest of our mutual client(s). Their ethics are absolutely pristine and they work hard! It always makes my job that much easier to work with great brokers and Jason and Sophia never cease to amaze me in getting the deal closed. It should come as no surprise that I regularly refer friends, family and clients to the Klopas Stratton team. I also use them for all of my personal real estate needs. They are the best.

Jason did an excellent job on the sale of my condo in the South Loop. He was very responsive and he sold the unit quickly. The buyer was difficult and Jason worked well with the buyer's realtor to get the deal done. Jason always made himself available and coordinated all the little details which made my life so much easier. He knew exactly how to prepare the property for showing and the online presence of my unit was top-notch. I would highly recommend him.

Sold a home in 2014.
We had a somewhat "problematic" buyer in that he at some point post-attorney review, post-appraisal and post-inspection decided he no longer wanted to purchase. This decision was brought to our attention on the last day of the mortgage contingency and had it not been for Jason Stratton's expertise in negotiating real estate contracts, we would have been left with no buyer, no earnest money and 4 weeks of valuable time off the market. Instead, we used the seller protection that had been written into our contract as leverage to force the buyer to close. We are extremely happy clients and could not have asked for a more experienced agent. Jason is extraordinary at balancing his clients' best interests and still maintaining the integrity of the real estate profession.

Jason went above and beyond to help me and my partner get into our dream house. If it wasn't for everything he did, we probably would not have got it otherwise. The house had another offer that was accepted, and he made sure to stay on top of the process in the case that the other people were to have any issues that would void their sale. They did and jason did his magic to make sure we would get into the house... Thanks so much Skip/Dennis

Excellent and professional service in handling the selling of my Logan Square Condo in Chicago. The condo sold in no time due to the amount of time and effort put forth by Jason. He always had immediate responses to any questions I had and always found the best solution to any issues that came up. Jason and his team made the closing a breeze from start to finish. I was even on vacation when an offer came in for my place and Jason worked directly with the hotel to make sure they received all the paperwork I needed to sign. He always went the extra mile to make sure we were happy with the service he was providing. From start to finish, he was extremely professional and competent, I would use him again in a heartbeat and have recommended him to all my friends and family looking to buy or sell.

She even put us in touch with an extremely thorough and friendly mortgage broker from Wells Fargo. But most importantly, she helped us find our DREAM home and we couldn't be happier!

I have worked with Sophia for years and she has always exceeded my expectation. She is very knowledgeable and works hard, she will go above and beyond what any agent would to get a deal done. Unlike many people in the industry she puts her clients first, she is not out there trying to make a quick buck off a deal, she builds long term relationship with her clients. If she doesn't feel like you are getting a good deal, she won't be afraid to tell you. She knows the market inside and out and will have no problem showing you a hundred places until you find your dream home and the best price possible. Will NEVER use anyone else for any real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 in Wicker Park, Chicago, IL.
I have been using Jason and Sophia since 2004. They have represented me with the utmost professionalism. In that time I have bought and sold 3 primary residences and also purchased a small portfolio of income property. It was because of their compentencies and hard work that I was able to sell my house in 2009 (that was purchased in 2005)... for a PROFIT. They have an uncanny ability to spot value and then negotiate as if it is their own property they are working on behalf of. I would strongly reccomend using them for your real estate needs.

Bought a home in 2006.
I worked with Jason when I purchased my current home. Since then, I have recommended him to over 5 people and all have had the same great experience I did. He is professional, knowledgeable and always available when you need help.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Belmont Heights, Chicago, IL.
Used Jason as my broker for the purchase of a new property, and the sale of my existing property at the time. We were looking for a very specific new construction in Chicago, and when we found one, there was a little bit of an issue with another possible buyer. Jason was able to work with the other agent, and helped come to a good arrangement for all parties involved. Basically if we were working with another less responsive agent, we would have lost the property we ended up purchasing. This deal required attention to prevent it from falling appart for me.
When we sold out home, we ran into a few issues with the buyer's agent, mortgage company, the association at my existing property, etc. Jason was very quick in getting the property properly showcased, and spent many hours having people come over. Jason was able to quickly address all issues, and make the sale go through. With this sale, if he had been like my previous agent a number of year ago, I would certainly have lost this sale, and potentially would still be sitting on this property (or would have had to take a bath on it).
Finally, Jason works with some excellent mortage bankers at Wells Fargo. When I was working on securing my mortgage, they were able to make it fly through in just under a couple weeks. I was on the phone with his brokers it seemed like ever couple hours as the "underwriters" wanted more information. While I got a very good interest rate, I don't see how these "internet" mortgage brokers could have competed. With the house I was buying, there was a backup offer in to the seller. If my mortgage went slow, I am sure I would have lost the property.
Finally, the lawyers that Jason works with did an excellent job as well taking care of the oboligatory issues that come up.
What I got with Jason wasn't just a good aggressive agent, but a very good team that was able to work together to make the deals go as smooth as possible! Jason's knowledge of the Chicago area is also very strong!

Bought a home in 2012 in Near North, Chicago, IL 60611.
We recently purchased a condo in downtown Chicago. Jason Stratton was our buying agent. He is very easy to work with,and gave freely of his time both in person and also over the phone. He is a top-notch agent with extensive knowledge of properties and took into consideration all of our wants and needs. We also had the pleasure of meeting and working with Sophia Klopas, who was also a pleasure to work with. Due to Jason's diligence, we are now the owners of a lovely condo in the city and are enjoying all the luxuries the city has to offer. If I had to do it all over again, Jason would be the agent of choice!

I use Jason and Sophia for all of my personal real estate transactions. However, I would like to highlight an area I use them for that is even more important to me. As a private wealth advisor I handle close to 100 real estate transactions per year for my clients. These are always difficult as I have to bring in outside personnel to handle purchase/sales, marketing, and financing. I am incredibly cautious as to who I am willing to put in front of my clients. I am proud to say that Jason and Sophia are the default option. Not only are they incredibly talented at what they do, but more importantly their dedication to service is second to none. Jason's ability to source undervalued properties and to squeeze every last dime out of sell-side transactions has been a tremendous asset to my business.

This was a great experience all around. Sophia was extremely helpful and flexible. She understood what I was looking for and helped me find it in a timely fashion. She adapted well to my schedule and wants and would check in often to make sure I was doing alright and if I had any questions about the process. I've already recommended her to another friend of mine in the market.

Sophia is certainly a leader within her profession. Not only does she constantly display personal attention to her clients needs, she really is knowledgeable in her profession. Her suggestions are usually correct and she seems to be able to respond promptly and sincerely.
I would and have referred her to others in need of real estate assistance.

From start to finish, I was told what to expect in a process I knew nothing about. Sophia handled the transaction with professionalism and keen savvy, making herself available to me even at the oddest of hours. I have since recommended her & Jason to all my friends~

Sophia was very accommodating to our difficult schedule. We live out of town and needed an agent who could be flexible when we had the time to look. When we found "our" condo, Sophia's expertise allowed us to negotiate a favorable price.

Sophia is incredibly knowledgeable, attentive, patient, and puts your best interest 100% first. She has a great reputation among other brokers and has a lot of relationships in the city. She gave me honest opinions and advice, and happily showed me many properties until I found one I loved. My place paled in price compared to many of the properties she brokers but she always treated me like her top priority.

This agent was a pleasure to work with. She knew the area very well, was very responsive to our needs and accommodating with scheduling. She always did her research and never showed us properties that weren't within our requirements. Her knowledge of the industry was definitely apparent. She knew all our interested neighborhoods well. You will not be disappointed working with this team; I am confident they will find you a home.
