Jeff Jacobson

Jeff Jacobson co-founded Pacific Listings Inc. in 2009 and is actively involved in the daily operations of the company.  He oversees leasing, marketing, company financials, documentation, and client relationships.

Jeff was born and raised in and around Los Angeles.  He developed an interest in rental property from his Grandparents who owned and managed apartment buildings throughout Southern California.  Their first-hand knowledge of tenants and their experience with management companies inspired Jeff to contemplate real estate investment & management as both a career and a hobby.

Jeff studied business, accounting and finance and earned a Bachelors degree from Pacific Union College before pursuing his Real Estate Brokers License.  In 2007 he secured a Senior Analyst position at a mid-sized commercial real estate firm where he quickly excelled to a senior investment sales position.  As an analyst he provided clients with detailed property analysis and made recommendations for adding value to undervalued assets.  He worked intimately with the company’s property management division to improve their leasing methods and client communication & retention.  As a senior investment sales agent he facilitated the sale and purchase of several apartment buildings in Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Century City.  In 2008, Jeff formed a strategic partnership and friendship with Alex Moran which eventually led to the creation of Pacific Listings Inc. in 2009.

A company is only as valuable as its customers are loyal, and Jeff’s friendly yet no-nonsense business approach has helped Pacific Listings gain and retain an unprecedented number of client relationships.  He performs market research and advises landlords daily on subjects including pricing, renovation, tenant relationships/issues and tenant selection.  He understands Los Angeles, West Hollywood and Santa Monica rent control restrictions and helps landlords avoid the headaches associated with ownership in these cities.  Most importantly, he believes wholeheartedly that every client can benefit financially from Pacific Listings services and spends 12-14 hours/day proving it to his clients.

Jeff is married to his beautiful wife Robin and they have a young son named Luke.  Robin is a CPA at a prominent firm in Downtown LA and is regularly called on by Pacific Listings for Accounting and Tax advice.  Together with their son they regularly attend a small church in Thousand Oaks and visit with their large families who are all eager to spend time with Luke.
