Broker: Douglas Elliman Texas
Living in the Central Austin neighborhood of Bryker Woods, Jeff has called Austin his home since 2013. With over 18 years of experience in multiple disciplines of Residential Real Estate. Upon receiving his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics from the University of Texas at Austin in 1989, Jeff began his career as a Financial Advisor with Lehman Brothers. In November of 1992, Jeff co-founded Block Trading Inc and was, in part, credited with nationally commercializing a means of direct-access computerized trading known as SOES (Small Order Execution System) Trading.
Following the success of Block Trading in 1999, Jeff pursued his second passion of architecture, homebuilding, and real estate by establishing PAK Interests, a luxury home building company focused primarily on the highest quality construction in Central and West Houston. With his partner, Stonehenge Classic Homes, he received numerous
awards for the design and construction of Houston's most unique properties. In 2010, after the economic meltdown and subsequent housing crisis, Jeff's reflection on his prior experience in creating new levels of transparency in the equities markets led to the question of "Why isn't more data made available to consumers in the residential real estate market?" In 2012 this question, combined with his love for technology, inspired Jeff to create NuHabitat, a real estate listing search platform for Consumers, in an effort to bring improved clarity, speed, and accuracy of property listing information to home Buyers and Sellers. Jeff also became a licensed REALTOR® and sold real estate in Houston and assisted with Digital Strategic Planning.
In 2017, Jeff shifted his focus to become a full-time REALTOR® electing to leverage his building knowledge and technical expertise to exclusively help home Buyers and Sellers.
