Jason Binab brings high energy, an outgoing personality, passion for marketing and 14 years of real estate knowledge to his role as Managing Partner of The Agency’s British Columbia offices.
Jason’s straight-forward style of honesty and hustle, combined with his wide network of local and international buyers, has helped him sell over $1 Billion in his career to date. Jason’s awards range from #1 Team in Victoria and on Vancouver Island (with RE/MAX) to #1 Team in North America and #2 agent Global (with Engel & Völkers, out of close to 10,000 realtors). He has also ranked among the Top 200 agents in Canada (source REP Top 200 Agents) along with Top 3 agents in Victoria based on Google customer satisfaction surveys. Specializing in the sought-after neighborhoods of Oak Bay, Saanich East Cadboro Bay, Ten Mile Point and Queenswood, as well as Victoria’s high-end waterfront properties, Jason has proved that exceptional service, honesty and integrity are winning formulas. He is proud to work closely with his sister, fellow realtor Sarah Binab, who has been instrumental in his success over the last few years.
Today, Jason can honestly say he is living the real estate dream he always envisioned. After auditioning against many of Victoria’s top realtors, Jason was chosen to be the host of the hit TV show Design District. On the show, Jason worked as a realtor and provided clients with advice on renovations and market values. The first year was a tremendous success and local Victoria achievement, paving the way for a widely-watched second season. In 2014, he filmed three episodes for the international real estate show, What’s For Sale With a View, which currently airs on Netflix. Jason also stepped outside the traditional box of real estate media and created a new YouTube Series, Rides with a Realtor, which incorporates two of his passions: exotic cars and luxury real estate. The episodes feature Jason and his friends Tim Quocksister and Joel Friesen of Silver Arrow Cars alongside rare, exotic supercars and beautiful real estate.
Jason was born in Trail BC, Canada and lived there until the age of seven when his family moved to Port Alberni. His father owned hotels and nightclubs, which resulted in frequent travel and relocating. At the age of 12, Jason’s family moved to Victoria, where he currently resides. After a five-year stint in Vancouver for film school, Jason fell in love with the camera but found his true passion was for a free-flowing lifestyle that didn’t require a script.
Jason is happily married to his wife Amber and together they have two sons Benson and Jamison. When Jason is not working, he can be found spending time with his family. His sports passions are cycling, hockey, water sports and snowboarding. Jason is dedicated to giving back and has helped raise money for youth cycling, cancer research, minor hockey, local sports and Power to Be, a non-profit Victoria/Vancouver-based organization that empowers individuals with disabilities to explore their limitless abilities through adventures in the great outdoors.
