Jeff Jones is the designated broker and co-founder of the Jones Group. Jeff began his career in real estate at the Dietz Organization in Detroit, Michigan before joining Marcus & Millichap Phoenix in 1994.
At Marcus & Millichap, Jeff closed over 45 transactions totaling $105,000,000 in a four-year period. In 1998, Jeff formed the Jones Group Real Estate Services, LLC (JGRES) and Jones Group Real Estate Development, LLC (JGRED). JGRED under Jeff’s leadership became a pioneer in the luxury student housing industry building over 3,536 beds of urban mixed-use high-density luxury student housing. JGRED went completely against the consensus and built mixed-use urban student projects with very large units vs. consensus of building suburban building with small unit square footage. Jeff’s concept proved to be significantly more profitable than the consensus over the last 14 years.
Jeff received his B.S. in Finance and Real Estate from Western Michigan University.
