Creating Long Term Successful Relationships
One Deal at a Time
Trust. Commitment. Results.
A passionate and driven force in the real estate industry, Jeffrey has achieved success by a relentless persistence and an unwavering positive attitude.
Jeffrey joined Sotheby’s International Realty® after nearly a decade and two hundred completed transactions successfully representing retail property owners and shopping centers throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
The breakneck speed and sheer volume of those deals helped him to develop the ability to get an enormous amount done with calm, integrity and efficiency, which translated seamlessly when he transitioned into the residential market.
In his first year and a half at Sotheby’s International Realty®, he sold, referred and leased $13,730,000 in transactions, including setting a new price record in Pacific Palisades.
Two years later, after earning his Broker’s license, he collectively closed over $35,000,000 in sales, referrals and leases, and was honored with the distinction of becoming the #3 Sotheby’s International Realty® Agent in the Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica & Venice brokerage offices, as well as the #18 Sotheby’s International Realty® Agent in all of Southern California.
A native Philadelphian and honors graduate of Carnegie Mellon University’s prestigious Drama Department, Jeffrey began his professional career performing in the Tony Award® winning Broadway production of "Anna Christie" before the ink on his diploma was dry.
Multiple seasons with the celebrated Williamstown Theatre Festival afforded him the opportunity to continue honing his craft while working alongside some of Hollywood's most prominent actors, producers and directors.
Being front and center suited him well, but his real passions lie behind the scenes - bringing people and deals together.
After shooting several dozen high profile national commercials, he began the transition as a production company executive, first as Director of Development for a bi-coastal film and television studio, to Head of Feature Film Development for a highly respected New York based Literary Agency.
Somewhere in there he managed to produce an award winning short film about the aftermath of 9/11 and the resiliency of the American people shot entirely on location in New York City (Official Entry Academy Awards®).
Jeffrey's business journey continued at The Walt Disney Company, where he eventually joined their Corporate Affairs Department (a division of only 5 people within a company of over 166,000 employees), working directly with their Board of Directors, as well as their 700+ subsidiaries.
While at Disney he met one of Los Angeles' most prolific commercial real estate brokers, and from that chance networking meeting, a new avenue of opportunity presented itself - and Jeffrey has never looked back.
A powerful problem solver with extensive knowledge of real estate markets, Jeffrey is as much at ease working with first time homebuyers as he is with sophisticated and demanding owners of multi-million dollar properties. His innovative sales skills and creative marketing support his passion to bring people and deals together.
