Jason worked for BC Ferries for 7 years where he met many of his friends and clients. In 2001 Jason moved to Vancouver to pursue an acting career. While coaching hockey for two years at the Arbutus Club in Vancouver he met one of his player’s parents who was,and is still one of Vancouver’s top Realtors. This introduction made Jason realize how he could use his love of people and houses and merge them into one successful profession.
In 2005 Jason relocated back to Victoria, which he always considered home, to begin his career in Real Estate. He quickly learned what it takes to succeed. Early in 2006 he co-founded an award winning team and instantly his business began to grow.

In 2012 he formed the Binab Group where he currently he is working with team members Sarah Binab (his sister) and Rodney Henderson, along with executive assistant Melanie Mann and his wife Amber Binab. Jason and his team consistently deliver award winning service combined with aggressive and modern marketing techniques. Marketing and branding has been one of Jason and his team’s most important success factors.

It was refreshing to use a realtor that clearly was attentive with our needs and requirements. Jason remained professional at all times and yet conveyed a very relaxed and easy atmosphere. My wife and I were very apprehensive about the whole house buying system, however, Jason made it clear and simple.
Best agent in Victoria! I've used Jason to sell my property and I've recommended him to two friends and my boss, all of whom gave him rave reviews. He was extremely patient with me during the stressful negotiation period and as tough as nails when my buyers got cold feet. His contacts in Victoria are better than most as he was able to sell my property in less than three months when two other agents hadn't been able to close the deal. I'd highly recommend Jason and his team and look forward to working with him again.
Jason has brokered a number of transactions for us over the last several years. He has very ably handled both purchases and sales, and advised us on a variety of other property issues. In every instance his efforts went above and beyond anything we have previously experienced in our real estate dealings. He not only has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the Greater Victoria market based on research, had work and his many past successes, but more important to us is the unfailing honesty and impeccable ethics with which he handles both his business and personal life. We can’t imagine dealing with anyone else and we look forward to even greater success, with his help, in the future.

I have used a few different realtors over the years, and Jason Binab not only met, but exceeded my expectations. His expertise in the real estate world, and knowledge of market trending, made selling my parents house an easy and effortless experience, as well as purchasing a new home afterwards. He then helped my own family in finding the home of our dreams, and helped us reach a deal where everyone was happy. Extremely friendly, professional, and more importantly effective. I highly recommend using Jason Binab for your buying and selling needs.
Buying and selling a home can be a stressful time, but Jason supported us through every step with his calm demeanour, kind nature and sense of humour. As his clients, it was obvious that our needs were his number one priority – he didn’t push us into making snap decisions or to do something we weren’t comfortable with. He also quickly became my four year-old son’s best friend, which is worth more than anything in my eyes. Jason is an exceptional agent and we highly recommend him for your real estate needs.
