NEW YORK, August 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Agorafy, a New York City-based real estate technology company, is thrilled to announce Jeff Vasishta as its new Managing Editor.

As Agorafy’s new Managing Editor, Jeff will lead the media coverage of all things real estate. The Agorafy Newsroom site will feature in-depth reporting, commentary and insight on the real estate industry in the United States and around the world. He will oversee the site’s day-to-day coverage and help develop new opportunities and channels for Agorafy to connect with its ever-widening audience.

Jeff, born and raised in Britain, comes to Agorafy with a distinguished background in journalism. Writing for publications like Rolling Stone, Billboard Magazine, and Interview Magazine, he has had the honor of sitting across from music industry luminaries like Prince, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Quincy Jones. Along with Jeff’s experience with the music business, he has also been a successful real estate investor since 2002. Having closed on over 150 transactions, Jeff’s passion for real estate has led him to investments in residential properties in Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Brooklyn. In addition, he has run real estate investment seminars for Chase Bank and Santander. Jeff earned his MFA from Fairleigh Dickinson University and attended the Riggio Writer’s Program at The New School.


“I feel truly honored to take the role of Managing Editor at Agorafy,” says Jeff. “It brings together two big interests of mine, writing and real estate. I love the energetic, pop-culture approach that the editorial team brings to writing about all things real estate. You heard it here—real estate can be fun! CEO Richard Du has built a truly international, knowledgeable team of progressive thinkers. I very much look forward to being the cutting edge of great writing, real estate and technology with Agorafy for many years to come.”

“We are truly excited to have Jeff with us,” says Richard Du, founder and CEO of Agorafy. “His connections in the real estate market will help us in our mission to work more closely with real estate professionals. Jeff’s background in journalism moves us ahead in our plan to innovate how media is made in the industry. These skills combine to help Agorafy’s search platform bring the most accurate and verifiable data to consumers and professionals alike.”

Possessing the combined qualities of editorial experience, a passion for real estate and a unique ability to connect with people, Jeff is poised to move Agorafy ahead in the market of real estate technology. When he’s not strategizing Agorafy’s media coverage, Jeff can be found with his family in Pennsylvania, maintaining his Brooklyn brownstone or watching West Ham United play football.
