Jason Lewis from "Risky Listing" stars in the Esquire Network reality series. He is a licensed associate in sales and leasing at the Picken Real Estate and Nightlife Brokerage.

Jason Lewis is a fast-talking, fast-walking, mile-a-minute agent who is always looking for the big money score and always looking out for "number one." A California native, Jason wanted to live in New York City for some time. After seeing the banding together of the community in the wake of 9/11, he finally made the move. He began his career in residential real-estate in the big apple.

Jason transitioned into commercial real estate when a residential client asked him to find a restaurant space in Brooklyn. Jason found his client a property that was listed by Picken Real Estate. "After my first restaurant deal as a co-broker with Picken, I was aware of the caliber of spaces Alex represents and I wanted to work for him." Jason has been a member of the Picken team for roughly a year. This rebel agent loves his job and finds it exciting. "If I sell someone a bar or a restaurant, I will stop by and see how they're doing because I want them to flourish and come back to me. I talk them up and want people to visit them."

It's Jason's passionate nature that sometimes gets him into heated debates with his colleagues. "I'm direct. I'm blunt. I'm honest. Through my bluntness – I care. Although I may fight with people I work with, the passion remains."

In addition to Jason's quick wit he feels it's his intelligence that sets him far apart from other agents – he's appeared at several NYC stand up comedy clubs. "If you're a trained monkey with $500, you can be an agent. That's why so many people in this industry are frowned upon — because they're morons."

Jason's biggest accomplishment in real estate was on the residential side, before his career at Picken. Among other big deals, He earned himself a $100,000 payday from five apartment sales in just one building. He's hoping the move to nightlife real estate pays off even more!
