After completing a Bachelor of Commerce in 1995, Jason embarked on a career in finance with Macquarie Bank, Sydney. This career in investment and commercial banking saw Jason work for some of the industry’s top institutions both in Australia and in the United Kingdom and he quickly gained a reputation for his strength in sales and his ability to build exceptional client relationships.

In 2010 Jason became the National Head of Real Estate Services for the Westpac Banking Corporation. Without a doubt he has enjoyed success in the real estate industry because of his focus on understanding his clients circumstances and needs. This success was recognised when he was the recipient of an elite award for being in the top 1% of performers across Westpac.
After more than a decade of working hand in hand with the real estate industry this inspired Jason to become a licensed real estate agent and auctioneer in 2010, fuelling his already passionate interest in this field and laying the foundations for a new career.
Having returned to Sydney’s North Shore were he grew up and went to school, Jason has a passion for property on the North Shore and deep res to the community through his children’s schools and local sporting clubs. When the opportunity arose to acquire Century 21 Northside, it was clearly an ideal opportunity to combine like minded ideals in excellence, performance and a strong sense of community and commitment.
Over the years Jason has built an appreciation of the importance of investing in deep and enduring relationships. Jason prides himself on taking time to get to know his clients and keeping abreast of the ever changing market. He is proactive in creating individual solutions that consider all of his clients needs. His style is to bring professional warmth to his relationships whilst being passionate and enthusiastic and always achieving a sustainable outcome for everyone.

What our clients have to say about us :
Dear Jason, thank you to you and your team for the expertise you demonstrated when selling our family home. The professionalism you displayed, the constant communication through the auction campaign and your integrity, transparency & negotiating skills were what we valued. You guided us through the sales process from start to finish and continued to support and guide us offering valuable advice and feedback as we found our new family home. We were confident that our best interests were always your top priority and would happily recommend you as our agent of choice. Matt & Sarah Young , Killara Nov 2016
We have the pleasure of recommending Jason Roach as the best real estate agent. He wouldn’t leave you alone through the sale process, he would address all of your concerns and knows very well how the market works. He has excellent communication skills and gets the best result for you. Not only being lucky to receive Jason's professional advice on selling our property smoothly but also receiving his kind support to buy our home! He was very honest in his constant communication and not over-promising. We will definitely ask for his help again if we get back to the market in future. Iman & Zahra. November 2016
Our experience with Jason and the team at Century 21 Northside this year has been nothing short of exceptional. We were thoroughly impressed with the professionalism of the team and in particular the quality and constancy of the communication process from initial contact, through the sale process and right up to settlement. We took considerable comfort from the regular and thorough updates on the relative success of different advertising methods, traffic through the property, strategy and advice on property presentation that included help with quotes for minor works as well as patient consideration of all our questions. This resulted in us having considerable clarity around the auction process we agreed upon, pricing expectations on the day of sale and a realistic but quiet confidence about the outcome. In our view, we think the vendor education and communication from Jason Roach, that was as continual as it was clear, was a critical success factor in our successful sale and we would have no hesitation at all in engaging Century 21 Northside for our future needs and in recommending them to any prospective property vendor or indeed any purchaser looking for property in the Northside catchment. Thank you very much Jason and the team. Simon and Gabrielle Thackray. Oct 2016
I'd like to give a big shout out to Jason and Jonathan for the magnificent sale of out home. The sale price was above and beyond my expectations. Jason and I have known each other for a year and in that time he had fostered a great relationship with us. Apart from the great results, the communication and continuous updates meant we were always informed and I could make informed decisions that would help me get the next home. Again I cannot thank you all enough for all your efforts and words of wisdom. I can highly recommend the team. Ivanka Dwyer. October 2016.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Jason Roach and his team at Century 21 for their professionalism and care shown to our family with the recent sale of our mother's home in Lindfield. It can be tricky when selling a family home when several people are involved. It's not just about the sale and the highest price but also respecting the family and being sensitive to their needs and concerns. As a representative for my family, I found Jason and his team to be very helpful and professional in their approach in communication, promotion of the property and advice given for the best possible result. I was always kept informed and Jason made the time to meet with me weekly during the campaign...something that not all agents will make the time to do with their clients. I wish Jason and his team and Century 21 continued success and have no hesitation in recommending them to future clients.
Warm Regards Angie Innes Aug 2016
Jason, We thank you for the management of the property and successful completion of the sale, both conducted professionally and to our satisfaction. Rest assured we will recommend you highly to any prospective clients, looking/ requiring the services that you provide. Thanks again. David & Bernadette.
It is now only a week away from our move out of our home of 18 years and relocation to smaller and more manageable premises. Change is a reality these days and something we have to accept with good grace. It can be exciting too, but still not easy to deal with. We are very grateful to Jason Roach and his team at Century 21 Northside Lindfield for making this transition as easy as possible. We have been very impressed by Jason's quiet confidence, local market knowledge and expert dealing with ourselves and prospective clients. Photography, promotional material and inspections were also expertly handled and we received immediate reports on buyer interest as the campaign proceeded. We would not hesitate to recommend Jason and Century 21 Northside Lindfield if you are considering selling. Sincerely, Josephine.
We would like to thank you and your team for the successful sale of our house. We have found you to be an effective communicator, organised and decisive throughout each stage of the sale leading up to the auction. We valued your integrity and fairness as you guided us through the process. We would have no hesitation recommending you to other people looking to sell their property.
Mark and Jenny Sanbrook
Jason Roach , Jonathan Stone and the team at Century 21 Northside Lindfield proved to be a great decision for us when selling our house. We were kept fully informed throughout the process with regular updates on inquiries, numbers attending open houses and interested parties which ultimately culminated in a sale price and overall experience that exceeded every expectation.
Marcus & Julia Johnston, Lindfield. June 2016
Jason Roach was our agent of choice when we sold our family home of many years. We wanted someone trustworthy, personable and who knew the local market well and Jason was all of those things. Jason guided us through the sales process from the very beginning and helped us to prepare for the sale . We felt comfortable contacting him at any time to discuss all sorts of issues and found he was responsive and helpful. Throughout the marketing campaign, we were kept updated on how things were progressing and he provided us with his expert opinion on next steps. On the day of the auction he kept us fully informed and was a great support. We were very pleased with our auction result. Jason generously assisted us in our discussions with the agent of the vendor of our new home, and helped us progress towards a successful purchase. We remain grateful to Jason for all of his assistance and would commend him to anyone seeking to appoint an agent. Francesca Menniti. April 2016
We recently appointed Jason to sell our family home of 48 years in Killara. Selecting an agent was not an easy task however we found Jason to be professional and understanding of our families needs. We instructed him to sell the property off market with the minimum of fuss prior to commencing an auction campaign. He fulfilled the brief by finding us a buyer who paid a record price in under a week. We are happy to recommend Jason for anyone looking for a high quality agent on the North Shore. Vanessa Ashcroft. February 2016
Jason recently sold my mother’s house after she had been living there for nearly 20 years. Mum chose Jason after observing him at a local sale as she liked the way he treated all parties involved. Throughout the process, Jason was transparent, hard-working, organised, considerate and reliable. We were kept well informed and given good advice. I would like to thank Jason for all his efforts. I genuinely believe we got a great result. A special thanks to Jane who helped out. Her calm, warm and friendly manner greatly reduced the stress on my mother. Best Wishes Anna Demetrios 2016
When we thought of selling our house, we wanted a hardworking and reliable agent who not only knows the area well but is able to advice on market sentiments and the sale process and we found Jason Roach to be the right person. His communication style was open, and his willingness to work with us in getting the right marketing strategy to achieve a strong result is evident from the sale of the house. It was a wonderful experience working with Jason & Jane, we are pleased with the outcome of the auction and will recommend Century 21 Northside to anyone who is considering selling their house. Yours Sincerely, Derrick & Zenna Chew. January 2016
Jason, Thank you for the lovely photo which will give us pleasant memories of our association with you. Thank you also for all the advice and attention you gave us towards achieving the successful sale of our property..
Sincere regards to you and your team. Katie and Sion September 2015
"Jason is a thoroughly professional operator who goes the extra mile to establish a relationship to get best outcome for all parties. His attention to detail, market knowledge and selling strategy helped us maximise our property value and took the stress out of selling our home. We wouldn't hesitate to call on Jason again for guidance on any of our property needs" cheers Richard M September 2015
Your hard work and thinking about the benefit to the customer left me with a deep impression. I am happy to recommend you to my friends and clients.
Cheers Mr Wang
Thank you for all of your work on the campaign, it produced an outstanding outcome !
Mike Burley August 2015
Jason was always professional and transparent in the way he conducted business. He was patient and listened to our ideas and opinions without pushing his own. Communication between us was always open and encouraged. Most importantly, he was always on our side and working for a better deal in our favour. We thank you Jason for your commitment and enthusiasm throughout this journey and know who to come to if ever we find ourselves in need of expert real estate market advice.
Kindest regards, Tanya S. May 2015
Jason Roach was the third real estate agent we approached to sell our former family home in Killara after having observed his method of operation in selling a nearby residence. Unlike the other agents, he was very positive about our property from the very beginning. He immediately saw great potential in the property and designed a first class advertising programme to highlight its attributes.
We were greatly impressed with Jason’s manner in dealing with us and especially his marketing advice and how best to present the house for auction. We were grateful that he took over from us the whole worry of selling and advised on and engaged appropriate trades people to attend to any necessary internal repainting, replacement of floor coverings and other minor maintenance matters.
At all times Jason kept us fully and promptly informed of his negotiations with prospective purchasers. He made himself readily available for consultations with us about market conditions and regarding progress with solicitors and trades people.
Also we were tremendously impressed with Jason’s ability and skills both pre-auction and during the auction when he maintained constant contact both with bidders and auctioneer, answering questions and offering encouragement.
As a result, we accepted a price which exceeded our expectations and we hereby express our thanks to Jason for his very beneficial achievements on our behalf. My daughter has added the following comments –
Jason was extremely professional and went beyond what was absolutely necessary to assist us in selling the property. To begin with, we were not completely confident about how best to sell but Jason reassured us and we had total faith and trust in him. His communication and current market knowledge was thorough and he always had time to consult us. He supported all our decisions through every stage.
We would definitely contact him again for any future arrangements.
Just a quick note to say thank you for the sensational job you did on Saturday. Both my parents are thrilled with the result. Interestingly I get a feeling where my ultra competitive streak comes from. Obviously you need two interested parties but once you had them they were played magnificently. With at least one of the parties wanting to live there the advice to tart it up was priceless. Once again thanks from all the family.
Neil Warren Feb 2015
We would like to formally thank you and the team at Century 21 for your professional attitude and approach in selling our home. Being mortgage brokers, we regularly meet and deal with real estate agents and businesses and we understood how important it was to get the right ‘fit’ when selling our own home. You have a very friendly approach and you made us feel at ease throughout the whole process. The experience of selling our home was made all the less stressful through your professionalism in keeping us informed of prospective buyer feedback, vendor meetings and preparation of all possible outcomes at auction. When we didn’t sell at auction, we felt confident you still had the matter in hand and would ultimately get us a fast result that we would be happy with. As we leave our home in Sydney and move on to the next chapter of our lives we would like to wish you all the very best for the future and welcome you to visit when you are next up at the Hunter Valley.
Kind Regards Andrew & Natalie Copeland March 2015
We recently had the pleasure of engaging Jason Roach from Century 21 Real Estate to sell our very much loved home of 30 years. It was a stressful time for us as Dot was recovering from surgery. Selling by auction and with an intense marketing campaign Jason held our hand all the way. He kept us informed at every stage of the selling process and answered all our calls and questions promptly and honestly. We appreciated the preliminary research that he carried out clearly showing his extensive knowledge of our area and the current market. We also appreciated his suggestions on the ways to improve appearances and potential of our house. We particularly valued Jason’s exceptional marketing, exemplary communication skills, and his professionalism and integrity. By the time auction day came, we knew that everything that could be done had been and no stone was left unturned in possible buyers. The auction was a full team effort and our thanks go to the Century 21 team. The house was sold above reserve and we are now moving onto our new home. The courtesy, friendliness and professionalism with which Jason and the Century 21 team conducted the entire project is to be commended. We felt confident at all times that our best interests were Jason's top priority and would have no hesitation in recommending Jason to anyone contemplating any real estate venture.
Thanks again and best wishes

I met Jason Roach soon after the death of my father, to arrange the sale of our family home. Jason’s care and empathy combined with sensible advice was immediately greatly appreciated. He then helped considerably with organisation of the house for sale. This assistance went far beyond my expectations and together we presented the house for sale in its optimum condition. He provided regular updates by phone and email, responding rapidly to issues as they arose. He was at all times understanding of difficulties and most professional in arrangements. The sale was conducted by auction and the experience was a most positive and stress-free one. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Jason as an estate agent of the highest quality and look forward to dealings with him in the future.
John F Dowsett Dec 2014
I have known Jason Roach professionally since the late 1990's when he was a senior manager for Macquarie Bank. I enjoyed working with him as a client and found him thoroughly professional at all times. He has a straightforward manner and deals with all matters sensibly, sensitively and appropriately. He has dealt with a large number of real estate businesses across the country and it was evident that he is skilled at dealing with a wide range of different, often difficult and demanding situations and personalities. I was sorry when Jason left Macquarie Bank to join Westpac and at some point I considered transferring my business accounts to retain the relationship with him. Jason's experience and training have given him a truly exceptional depth and understanding of all matters real estate, which is of great value to buyers and sellers alike. In 2014, after a protracted and very acrimonious separation, I needed to appoint an estate agent who I felt would be able to cut through and deal sensibly and clearly with both sides in the sale of a large home in a blue-ribbon location in Killara. I had no hesitation in appointing Jason. Jason had no hesitation in accepting the brief. Jason managed to build rapport with my ex. He liaised tirelessly with all parties. He found and liaised with tradespeople to present the property in the best possible light. He followed up with all prospective buyers, he helped to establish a price point for a unique property. He was aware of all properties currently on the market and as far as possible provided comparable sales. Since exchange of contracts, Jason has been in regular contact and kept me informed of all developments. As a practising real estate agent for 30 years, I have no hesitation in recommending Jason as a truly exceptional agent. All too often agents are merely chasing the commission. At no point in my dealings with him have I ever felt that Jason was putting his own interests ahead of mine. I commend Jason to you.
Yours sincerely, David Servi
We found Jason to be hardworking, highly organised and with excellent communication skills. These skills enabled him to establish good relationships with possible purchasers and to keep their interest in the property up to the auction date. We also felt confident in his integrity and that prospective purchasers would also feel the same. Jason was great helping us to organise tradesmen to work on the house prior to it being advertised for sale and was always happy to help with being at the house to let tradesmen into the house or lock up after they had finished if needed. He also kept us very well informed as to the result of the open inspections, comments from people who viewed the property and who was seriously interested.
We were confident that he made every effort to ensure that our house sold for the best possible price and we did get a terrific result. Jenny Gorrick
“We are delighted to recommend Jason’s services as a professional real estate agent. Throughout the process of selling our family home he kept us up to date and informed whilst working with our busy schedules. We were thrilled with the result and the ease with which Jason handled the sale made what we thought would be a very stressful process, very easy. “
Carmen and Declan Roche
We highly recommend Jason as an agent. He has been extremely helpful and nothing has been too much trouble for him. He is polite, and prompt to answer emails and texts. We have dealt with many real estate agents in the past, and Jason is outstanding.
