Marla O'Brien (Home Buyer)

When I first received my license, I was very concerned about finding the right brokerage.

I kept hearing, "Just pick one. If you don't like it, leave," but I didn't just want a stepping stone, I was looking for a home. I found it with Jason and Rebecca at NextHome Advisors! My knowledge and confidence has grown exponentially under their guidance and with the help of my fellow agents. The training and support I have received has been invaluable, our marketing materials are high quality, and I am continually impressed with the technology and tools provided. It is truly a pleasure to work alongside Jason and have the privilege to see moments of pure brilliance, or to watch him come alive during training sessions, filling you with inspiration. Rebecca is genuinely caring and has a seemingly neverending wealth of knowledge she is always willing to share. I love Jason, I love Rebecca, I love my NextHomies, I love belonging to such a wonderful family, and it is simply an incredible feeling to be a part of the fastest growing real estate franchise in the country!

Shelby Sullivan (Retired )

This is my second sale wit h Jason Jakus Both times he was extremely professional and very helpful.

My first sale mold was discovered in the condo. He help!ed me get the company who had remediated it to come back again at no charge and clean it up again. He also kept the sale together when i also had radon in the unit. He always returned calls in a timely fashion. The second sale also went well . He found a handy man who did some work on the villa . I also was going to do painting and put down new carpets but the buyer didn't want to do that. When i tried to cancel the carpeting which i had already put a deposit on I had difficulty getting my money back. Jason had Ronson Williams...a broker who works with him help me get it back. It took a while but after many phone calls I got the money back. Ronson was very patient and persistent until the problem was resolved. I highly recommend Next Home Advisors.

Marie Grondin

I chose to move my Real Estate business of 17 years to NextHome Advisors last year because of the work ethic, communication, technology, training and energy that Jason leads this company with.

I have had first hand experiences with the corporate leaders of NextHome and could not be happier to be a part of the Advisor Franchise. I feel confident my business will continue to grow working at NextHome Advisors with Jason leading the team.

This purchase was our first venture into house flipping & Jason was an integral part of the process.

We found him to be very knowledgable & understanding of the market here in SW Florida. We greatly appreciate Jason's patience and impressed with the full service NextHome provides.

I have known Jason, now, for over two years.

I met him through a friend when I decided to move to Florida. He helped me find my first house in Venice. Two years later, he sold that house for me, at a profit. He is always professional, friendly and a joy to work with. Besides the fact that he is just an all around good guy. I consider hm a great realtor and a good friend.

Couldn't be more pleased with the level of service Jason provided.

Having never purchased a property in Florida in the past, Jason took the time to explain the nuances of Florida real estate and answered every question. Jason's responses were timely and made the process as seamless as possible. Thank you, Jason!

Mark Fitzpatrick

Jason did a great job helping to sell my condo at Bella Casa.

I was able to get a very good price. Also he held the deal together when I had a recurrence of a mold problem as well as a problem with Radon. I don't think another realtor would have been able to keep the deal together.

Marie Grondin

Moving o Florida from North Carolina we knew no one.

Our Next Home advisor in North Carolina recommended Jason to us. Jason was very professional. After talking with my wife & I Jason sent us multiple listings of houses that fit our needs. Once list was narrowed we made trip down to look properties over. Jason gave us several days going over the pros and cons of each house. After decision made Jason made it as painless as possible. He had to do some hand holding and got us thru the process. Great job.

David Sullivan (Retiree)

Jason came recommended to me and I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

To begin, Jason sent a link which I could - at my leisure - peruse through all listings. The amount of information on each listing was extremely helpful in narrowing my list down. Jason put together an organized and efficient day during which we looked at all properties i was interested in seeing. I found Jason to be responsive to and he provided thoughtful things to consider when I needed to make decisions. My closing went smoothly. When an issue came up shortly after closing, Jason went above and beyond to insure it was addressed to my satisfaction. I highly recommend Jason to anyone looking for a realtor in the Ft. Myers/Naples area. Thank you Jason!!


Jason is the most innovative broker I have ever experienced.

Any new system or tool that can be used in helping the sales people in our brokerage is first checked out, and if it seems useful he adds it to our tools that can be used in our presentations and systems. I look on him as an outstanding leader.


Jason is very knowledge in real estate.

He is very knowledgeable of the local, state and national trends and how the local market may be impacted. He willingly shares this info with all agents through sit down meetings, emails, videos and one-on-one when appropriate. Jason is all about real estate and building a successful business. He wants each agent to succeed. I recommend Jason when you are in need of a real estate expert.

Legionary Brown (Realtor)

I am a property owner of several land lots.

I've had the pleasure of working with Jason on three separate land lots in the past year. He not only assisted in listing, the sale and the handling of all inquiries and offers, but he really took the time out to explain sales numbers in the area, and lots of side information about the lots that was highly informative and helpful. He is very personable and always willing to take the time to deep dive certain questions and make sure you walk away with a clear understanding. Jason's character has led me to continue to come back to him, and I hope to have a continuous working relationship moving forward with additional properties that I sell in the future. I highly recommend Jason and his expertise in the field of real estate.

Miguel Rodrigues (Property Owner)

Jason and his team did a outstanding job in my purchasing of my first home .

Brian Sails

Jason is an excellent realtor who goes above and beyond for his clients.

As an out-of-state buyer relocating to FL, Jason worked diligently with me to find the right home. He made sure the deal was the best one possible and that the closing process went smoothly. He also followed up with us to make sure we are happy. Jason is knowledgeable, resourceful and great to work with. I look forward to working with Jason again. I recommend him highly.

James Brooks (Director of Community Engagement)

I found Jason to be respectful, make his appointments on time , understands the realtor rules and regulations.

He ask me what value I wanted from the property, rather than telling me what I should ask for the property. he kept nothing hidden from me and knew the answer to what questions I knew to ask and gave me insight to situations I had not thought of. All in all I appreciated his value and his company (NextHome Advisors) for keeping on top of the negotiations. William T. Stephens

William T Stephens (home owner)

Jason had to fight some tough issues - all of which were beyond his control.

His experience and understanding allowed him to work through the issues. Jason was aggressive in his marketing of our property, and professional and thorough in the negotiations to get the deal done. I would recommend Jason to anyone thinking of selling their home.

Andy Witt (Regional Real Estate Sales instructor)

Jason is nothing short of amazing.

We first met when he was speaking at a technology summit. I quickly realized during his presentation he was on top of his game in terms of implementing technology into the marketing that is being in the real estate business. Over the years I have worked with him he has consistently inspired, trained and supported all the while being a visionary and creating one of the most forward thinking tech and agent orientated brokerages in our market place.

I have been licensed since 2002 and have worked at several agencies; I can say with confidence that no other brokerage in this area offers the tools, training and broker involvement that I have found provided by Jason and NextHome at both the local and corporate level.

"I can only tell you that Jason is a true professional in a sea of sharks that swim on the land...., as Jimmy Buffett would say.... On the more serious side, Jason understands the real estate business inside out and his local knowledge will save you thousands. His commitment to the client is undivided no matter how much you have to spend. That being said, I have found Jason to be honest, forthright, hard working and diligent.

After dealing with many "Agents" over the years while trying to find the right home in Florida a friend recommended Jason and he was able to get done in one month what several agents couldn't get done in years. If you want your dream purchase to be a very positive experience, please call Jason and let him help you make your dream come true.

Thanks Jason for a job well done....."
