Award Winning New York Gay Realtor
A fourth generation New Yorker with a thorough understanding of his hometown’s evolving neighborhoods and fluctuating real estate market, Jeff is an expert at helping his clients achieve their goals. He works with sellers to sell their properties for the best possible price and helps buyers fulfill their dreams by finding and securing their new home or pied-a-terre. Jeff also draws on his extensive international travels and the skills he developed over 25 years as an advertising executive to help investor clients find promising investment properties.
Jeff grew up in Brooklyn (Manhattan Beach), and has also lived in Park Slope, Boerum Hill, the East Village, not to mention London (UK), and now Harlem, where he serves on his condo’s Board of Managers and is a former president. “This extraordinary city is totally and completely in my blood,” he says. “Its pace, the mix of people, and our diverse culture are my favorite things about New York.”
Jeff combines his love of the city’s rich history and his commitment to bringing New York’s great neighborhoods to life for his clients and friends by hosting several industry award-winning programs. One is a series of well-attended walking tours, aptly titled Rediscovering New York. “My goal in creating these tour events was to celebrate the places I help clients buy and sell property in so people can experience these wonderful neighborhoods,” Jeff says. “My tours reflect my commitment to showcasing the city’s great neighborhoods.”
After being named a finalist for the Inman News “Most Innovative Real Estate Agent” award in 2018 and being recognized as a 2019 RISMedia Newsmaker in the “Trendsetter” category, Jeff expanded his New York neighborhood programming by producing and hosting a weekly radio show, also called Rediscovering New York. It can be heard live each week on www.talkradio.nyc and can be found on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Amazon and others. The program earned Jeff recognition again by RIS Media in 2020, again as a Newsmaker in the “Trendsetter” category.
Jeff is active in the Real Estate Board of New York, serving on the Upper Manhattan Task Force; in the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce; in the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce; and in the National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals. Jeff is also an active member of a local chapter of the National Association of Divorce Professionals, an organization that provides education and resources to support professionals who work with people going through the divorce process.
During his limited downtime Jeff enjoys live music performance. He regularly attends the New York Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera, and also enjoys live folk music and bluegrass. Jeff is also an active volunteer, serving in different roles that support a variety of causes. Jeff serves on the New York Metro Council Chair for A Wider Bridge and is also on the Board of Directors for All Out Arts, which produces the Fresh Fruit Festival in New York. Some of his recent board affiliations were Out Professionals, and the Leslie Lohman Museum, the first dedicated LGBTQ art museum in the world.
Jeff values Brown Harris Stevens’ commitment to serving clients. “There is no other New York real estate company that has as many tools to be of service to its clients, and who’s committed to giving them the personal attention that is so vital when they are making the most financially consequential decisions of their lives.”
