Founder, The ACD Group | Licensed Real Estate Broker
Jason brings unmatched experience to the real estate brokerage business. After spending nearly a decade as an Investment Banker on Wall Street advising corporate executives on large multi-billion dollar transactions, Jason decided it was time to follow his passion in real estate. After successfully cutting his teeth in the business at the venture funded real estate startup, Flyhomes, as Head of Sales and Business Development starting his own real estate venture was the natural next step. Jason founded ACD Property Group (“The ACD Group”) because he loves working with real people and helping them navigate one of the most important and meaningful transactions they’ll ever make. It’s a pretty awesome thing to wake up and get excited about each and every day! Clients benefit from Jason’s expertise in deal management, financial valuation, and negotiations. He brings passion and unsurpassed work ethic to every client’s transition. Not to mention, Jason has a natural way with people and an uncanny eye for design and aesthetics. Jason and The ACD Group have quickly risen to one of the top producing teams in the Chicagoland area, accomplishing in just a fraction of the time what takes other brokers a full career to achieve. They’ve done this by focusing on successfully delivering real value to buyers and sellers at each step along the transaction. And by having a lot of fun along the way!
Jason received a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from NYU Stern School of Business with Specializations in Real Estate and Finance, and a Bachelor of Science from Cornell University where he majored in Applied Economics and Management (AEM).

As a lifelong resident of Chicago, Nell has a love for this city and the people who call it home. One of her greatest strengths and passions is working with people and building meaningful lifelong relationships. So, after beginning her career in investor relations for a Fortune 500 company, she eventually found she could best deploy those passions as one of the first members of a venture funded real estate startup, Flyhomes. She was quickly thrown into the fast paced world of buying and selling and became one of the company’s top employees.
Nell’s individual successes naturally led her to establish a partnership with her then colleague, Jason Davis, to form The ACD Group, where they could begin driving even more value for their clients. Clients don’t only benefit from Nell’s genuine interest in people and vast knowledge of the Chicago community, but also in her heightened sense of organization and attention to detail. Nell’s ability to really listen to her clients also allows her to proactively anticipate their needs and deliver the value they are looking for. She’s also just great to connect with generally on anything Chicago, especially where to grab a bite to eat!
Nell received a Bachelor of Arts from Butler University where she majored in Communication Sciences and Disorders.

A Chicago transplant by way of San Clemente, California (plus a few cities across the US and Australia in between), Sarah has developed a deep-seated love and appreciation for the city of Chicago, and all that makes it one of the greatest cities in the world to live in. Sarah has possessed an entrepreneurial spirit for the majority of her life, trying her hand in small business branding services, website design, photography and surf lessons, among a few other ventures. Her passion for helping small business owners find their voice in oversaturated markets and grow their business led her to expand her professional services globally - as a flight attendant for a major US carrier.
Her travels have taken her to almost all seven continents and to over twenty countries (and counting) in just over five years. Constantly living a life on-the-go and in-between time zones has afforded Sarah the unique ability to foster and maintain meaningful and lasting connections across the globe.
In the midst of 2020, spurred by the absence of travel and shared experiences, she decided to enlist her passion for encouraging and enabling friends and family to discover and fall in love with new places to fuel her career as a real estate broker. She has since planted her roots in Chicago and is bringing her competitive spirit and wealth of life experience to The ACD Group.
Sarah received a Bachelor of the Arts from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas where she majored in Creative Advertising and minored in Human Rights. Since college, she has received her Broker's License in the State of Illinois, her Salesperson's License in her home state of California and her TEFL Certificate.
