Background

Jeffrey recently joined Primary Properties after a flourishing career in Hospitality. His desire in real estate is to find the perfect fit in the right location at the best price possible for his clients. His work ethic transcended from his hospitality career into his new passion for real estate.

He believes as in hospitality there are three steps of service. First is a warm and sincere greeting, to really get to know the client and to understand exactly what they are seeking. The second is to anticipate and to care for all of their needs with expertise and knowledge based foundation of his team. To communicate with his clients all of the processes that is being done to deliver the very best product available to them. And finally give his clients a heartfelt fond farewell and to invite them back whenever they are in need of his services or even to just hello.
