About Hayley

Real estate is not a job for Hayley, it's a passion, an obsession, and it's a way of life. As an award winning and "Top 1% Producing Agent", named by Chicago Association of Realtors and America’s Top 100 LLC, Hayley is driven by a strong desire to exceed clients' expectations and deliver results. Hayley's philosophy is simple: she sells homes, not houses. A home is much more than just four walls, it is where we raise our children, make memories, and laugh and live as a family. Hayley truly understands that buying and selling a house is one of the most emotional, personal, and biggest financial endeavors one can make in their life, so she is dedicated to acting upon the highest level of integrity and professionalism.  For sellers, Hayley has a proven track record of selling homes at a 99.1% list to sales price ratio, and in less than half the market time of the average Realtor (according to broker metrics powered by MLS.) Using a winning combination of research driven analytic approach and an effective and innovative marketing plan coupled with her fierce negotiation skills, Hayley is sure to sell your home for top dollar and in record market time. Her deep market insight and ability to look at her clients circumstances from a holistic perspective allow Hayley to offer her clients invaluable advice so that they can be fully educated on every facet of the market to make the most informed and best decision.  Hayley is an Accredited Staging Professional and provides an extensive staging consultation and execution, which gives her sellers a leg up in Chicago's competitive market.  Lastly, she is an off market specialist who sells close to 25% of her listings before they hit the market. Hayley sees the buying process more as matchmaking than sales. She really takes the time to get to know her buyer clients on a personal level as well as their circumstances, needs, and wants so that she can help them find their perfect dream home. With an extensive remodeling and real estate investment background, she also can help find properties with good investment potential or fixer uppers while offering remodeling ideas and costs, and she even loves guiding and advising her clients throughout the remodeling process. Because of the incredible customer service Hayley provides for her clients, she is one of very few agents who is able to run her business almost entirely from referrals. "Hayley encompasses everything I could ever ask for in a Realtor, we appreciated her candidness, responsiveness, and level of expertise!" Hayley is a leader and cofounder of the top producing team MacPherson Westhoff Group that has collectively sold over $225 Million. MacPherson Westhoff is a one of a kind group that specializes in moving families from the city to the suburbs through their "Urban to Suburban Concierge."

Jason O.
Jameson Sotheby's Intl Realty
About Jason

Jason O’Beirne, Senior Vice President of Sales and Top Producer at Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty, is a 15-year real estate veteran specializing in new construction and rehabbed single-family homes throughout Chicago. Jason has sold over $250,000,000 in Chicago real estate, averaging over 75 sales per year, and has been in the top 1% of Chicago Realtors for the past 5 years. He has invaluable market knowledge, pricing expertise, and years of construction, architecture, and design experience. When he’s not working, Jason volunteers for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, runs, or plays music—he has played in several Chicago bands over the years and makes an annual trip to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Fest. Ever the strategist, he also enjoys chess. Jason, Kari, and their three-year-old Arthur live in a custom-built home in the beautiful Kenwood neighborhood. Jason has worked in residential real estate for 15 years but over the past 8 years, has worked almost exclusively with builders and developers, representing clients on 250+ single family home development projects on both the new construction and rehab side. Jason and his team are deeply familiar with the construction process for single-family homes and smaller development projects—including all of the many ups and downs along the way. Their hard work makes it easier for individual developers, construction groups, investors, and everyone in between to focus on their expertise, while they handle the market (and the marketing). The homes Jason represents often command the highest prices of any in their neighborhoods. This is achieved through detailed involvement in each project, from site selection through to final marketing efforts.
