Jason Haber joined Warburg after serving as the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Rubicon Property. For over three years Rubicon Property distinguished itself as a boutique real estate firm based on the Upper West Side. Haber grew the company – literally from his living room floor – to encompass a robust sales force that sold properties across Manhattan and Brooklyn. Warburg acquired Rubicon Property in January of 2014.
During his time at Rubicon, Jason brokered numerous high profile deals. This included the sale of multiple luxury townhouses, condos and coops. Jason managed multiple condo conversion projects and consulted with developers about potential ground up construction and conversion projects.
In 2016, Jason was the #2 ranked agent at Warburg Realty. His sales included a $24 million deal at 432 Park Avenue. Additionally, he heads an investment team that to date has purchased 14 multi-family buildings in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
Jason is a frequent commenter on NYC residential real estate. He has made numerous appearances on CNBC and Fox Business News and has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. Jason has been ranked by the Real Deal as one of the Top 100 agents in NYC. He has appeared in two episodes Selling New York, including one that featured his marketing efforts to sell Frank Sinatra’s former Upper East Side penthouse.
In 2016, his book, The Business of Good, was published and became a best-seller on Amazon. He has a background in politics and government and has worked for elected officials, including NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer. Jason holds a degree in Political Communication from The George Washington University and a Master's Degree from the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. He has served as adjunct professor at John Jay College where he taught a course on urban planning.

Testimonial from Helene Burger

My townhouse at 143 East 18th Street had been listed with 4 established firms.  Each made big promises.  They all came up short.  I had decided to list the townhouse myself as I was frustrated and fed up with brokers altogether.  Then I met Jason Haber and everything changed.

I first came to know of Jason after he was featured in the Wall Street Journal.  I was intrigued by his business model, which appealed to my charitable nature.  Upon meeting with him, I realized that while my home was listed with 4 different brokers, they all did business the same way, so why should I expect a different result?

I decided to try something different and I listed with Jason.  Immediately, I saw the impact of my decision.  He rolled out a great marketing campaign, changed my listing description, brought in a remarkable photographer to re-shoot my house, and he held events, which drew the attention of the media on the property.

There are so many reasons to hire Jason.  Above all else he is honest, hard-working and really cares about his clients.  If not for him, Iäó»d still be trying to sell my home.  I am sure he can do for you, what he did for me.
