Jason Palermo began his career in August 1993 as a Realtor, one week after his 21st birthday. Palermo’s dedication to helping fellow agents was evident from the beginning, and in August 2000, he became the youngest broker/owner for RE/MAX Northern Illinois.
Since then, Palermo has excelled as a top RE/MAX broker and has been the recipient of many broker management awards, including the 2004 and 2011 RE/MAX Northern Illinois Broker/Owner of the Year. He and his office also give back to the community; RE/MAX Vision 212 is known for hosting benefits for Children’s Memorial Hospital at its office.
Palermo makes it his mission to annually meet with agents individually to develop their own personal business plans. Since no two agents have the same skills or situation, each business plan is customized to the agent’s strengths. In 2012, Palermo transferred the office’s real estate files to a paperless cloud system providing agents with the ability to have access in real time to all of their files.
Born and raised in the Chicago suburb of Melrose Park, Palermo moved to Chicago in 2002 and currently lives in River North.
“It is a great honor to win ‘Managing Broker of the Year.’ I was thrilled just to be nominated, considering the many exemplary managing brokers in the city. I really appreciate that my agents thought that I was a worthy candidate for this award.”
