Jeff Cloninger has been a respected, full-time Palm Beach Realtor for 20 years and concentrates almost exclusively on houses, condominiums and commercial properties in the Town of Palm Beach.
For seven years, Jeff was a top producer for a major Palm Beach brokerage before opening his own office in 2001. Jeff has set several sales records including the most expensive sale to date for an oceanfront estate in Manalapan. He enjoys working on all levels of the Palm Beach real estate market and once had the distinction of having both the most expensive in-town listing and the least expensive in-town listing. His client list includes some of the most recognizable names in American business, social and political circles.
In 2002, Jeff was the developer of the Eliot House Condominium project, taking an aging seven-story apartment building and transforming it into one of the most desirable addresses in midtown Palm Beach. Jeff's knowledge of the local real estate market and the history of the Town of Palm Beach is extensive, and he has been quoted on these subjects in numerous national and international publications including the Palm Beach Daily News, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, Paris Match and Germany's der Spiegel.
Jeff has sold over one-half billion dollars worth of Palm Beach real estate and is actively involved in his community. Jeff is a past president of the Palm Beach Board of Realtors and currently serves on its Board of Directors. He also serves as vice president of the Royal Park Homeowners' Association and vice chairman of the Neighborhood Alliance of Palm Beach, and he was recently appointed to his second three-year term on the Town of Palm Beach Planning and Zoning Commission. Jeff was the 2009 recipient of the Palm Beach Civic Association's Raymond J. Kunkel Award, given to one Palm Beach resident each year who exemplifies heroic or meritorious service to the Town of Palm Beach.
Jeff's decision to join Sotheby's International Realty's Palm Beach office in 2013 was a sort of homecoming. He had been the Rental Department Manager for the Sotheby's International Realty affiliate in Aspen, Colorado, in the mid 1980s and was always mindful of the importance of the brand's international connections. In an increasingly global marketplace, Jeff Cloninger and Sotheby's International Realty make a natural fit.
