Get to Know Jeff

I have been in the private lending business since 2010 and have owned and operated two of my own small lending companies. I have also been investing in real estate since 2010 and have bought, renovated, built and sold nearly 100 properties and currently own a small rental portfolio as well.

Build a great team around you. It’s not always the cheapest contractor that will make you the most money. I have seen many investors step over dollars to get to pennies. Your time is as valuable as your real estate.

Forcing the numbers to work. It’s easy and tempting to select values and cost scenarios to artificially convince yourself that a deal makes sense. That is the easiest way to get in trouble. Sometimes the best way to make money is to not lose money.

My primary motivation is my family. I strive to be able to provide my twin daughters with every opportunity and experience possible. I also truly enjoy being part of my clients successes and helping them to grow their business and achieve their goals.

I grew up in Northern New Jersey but lived in New York City for 15 years after graduating college. I began lending on a small scale as personal investment in 2010 and when my daughters were born in 2011 I left banking to start a small lending business to allow me to spend more time with family.

I spend a lot of time with my family which includes a lot of family walks with our dog. When I’m not with family, I try to play as much golf as possible. I am also an avid tennis player who hasn’t yet become obsessed with pickleball.

I used to own a junk removal company which I purchased as a way to find properties after realizing that the junk guy was often the first person people call in an estate situation. It worked… I made more money buying houses that way than I ever did hauling junk! I have since sold the junk removal company but it was fun while I had it.
