Jason’s professional career life
Jason began his career as an attorney at the reputable law firms O’Melveny & Myers and Latham and Watkins, where he represented and worked on significant cases.
In pursuit of happiness, Jason left his lucrative job to tour the world to people’s dismay. He sold his belongings, packed his bags, left his law accomplishments, and toured five continents and several cities.
During his travels, Jason realized his passion for real estate, which was unsurprising because it dates back to his family history. After his worldwide sojourn, he returned with a $40k credit card debt and began chasing his real estate dreams. The brilliant attorney turned down jobs and began working at Coldwell Banker, taking almost a year before snagging his first deal and earning less than he did in his previous career.
Amidst all, Jason was relentless and determined to succeed.
Towards the end of 2013, Jason risked it and opened his luxury real estate brokerage firm in Los Angeles, The Oppenheim Group. With determination and hard work, he became a top agent and soon began closing multi-million deals.
He recruited experienced agents and, after that, got offers to film a reality tv show focused on his firm.
Eventually, Jason accepted producer Adam DiVelli’s offer to film a reality television show after initially declining others. Selling Sunset, a reality television series, was born. The show aired on Netflix, and became a hit and made Jason a more successful real estate agent and star.
