Jeff, born and raised in Britain, comes to Agorafy with a distinguished background in journalism.

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.”
