As a longtime resident of the Westside of Los Angeles, Jay worked as a co-marketing VP of Edmonds Record Group and also Island Def Jam. With the onset of the housing boom, he began purchasing homes in the west valley with oversight from initial purchase and renovation to listed and sold status. It was then that he was bit by the real estate bug, soon becoming co-owner of a mortgage company in Encino, CA. Spearheading its meteoric rise, he acquired in-depth knowledge of real estate finance, which is indicative of his understanding for the business in its entirety. This encouraged him to lend a hand on the agency side of his transactions.
