Meet the Team in 2018

2017 was a great year for the Real Group Real Estate team, and 2018 is primed to be even better!

As we look ahead to the state of the market and continue to devise even more ways to serve our clients, we thought it would be a great time to re-introduce the team – who we are, what we stand for, and what sets us apart.

Here at Real Group, we pride ourselves on bringing…

  • breadth of experience
  • rich history
  • sophisticated tools
  • winning personalities
  • availability

…to each and every one of our clients. We’ve been called a real estate “dream team,” and we pride ourselves on putting more money in our clients’ pockets. In fact, our famed negotiation skills allow us to consistently beat the market by 2.5 - 3.5%.

We always make it a point to put our clients first. We’re driven by their wants and needs, and we’re always going to be ready to educate, assist, and consult with them in order that they make an informed decision in their own best interest.

At the same time, we know that our job doesn’t end at the contract. We work with all of the players involved at every step of way, through the contract to close time period, connecting our clients with the proper tools, vendors, and conversations to cross the goal line successfully.

We get the best results, with the least amount of hassle. And we do it all with honesty and integrity. There’s a reason that we have received the much-coveted Five Star Professional Award for Integrity, Communication, and Customer Service eleven times!

The best part? We’re a real team of friends who complement and support each other, and we’ll bring that positive energy to you. Every member of the Real Group team brings unique strengths to the table:

Kenneth Arrizola

One of our founding partners, Kenneth is also our resident “staging guru,” bringing unparalleled client service and an acute eye for visual elements and spacial relationships to the team. With a degree in architecture and decades of experience working with real estate developers, architects, builders, home buyers, home sellers, and principals on both sides of the leasing transaction under his belt, Kenneth's attention to detail is his trademark.

Jason Finn

Jason is a founding partner of the Real Group Real Estate Team. He brings a long history of professional services and consulting experience to the table, having spent a decade consulting for the management of Fortune 500 companies such as Ford Motor Company, Allstate Insurance, America Online, Eli Lilly and Company, and a dozen others.

Jason’s legacy of deal negotiation, big budget management, client relationship development, and problem solving have equipped him to be a leading real estate professional. He has been named a Five Star Professional Real Estate Agent a stunning seven times, and was named a Baird & Warner Chairman's Club Winner 2016.

Marc Dumas

Marc is a lifelong Chicagoan, and has lived in neighborhoods including Chatham, Lincoln Park, North Center, the Loop, Bronzeville and Rogers Park, making him uniquely qualified to speak about this great city and all it has to offer. Marc truly understands the dynamics of the Chicago real estate purchase and rental market and is an expert at educating his clients so they can make the best decisions for their needs.

He’s also deeply involved with the community, as well. Along with membership in the Chicago Association of Realtors, Marc also serves on the South Loop Elementary Dad’s Club, the Children’s Oncology Services Gala planning committee, the Chicago chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and is the Chapter Advisor for two local undergraduate chapters of the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity.
