Jeff Ellis is a licensed real estate agent in the state of Florida and a member of the REALTORS® of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Lauderdale (RAPB + GFLR) and the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). Jeff received his real estate license in December 2016 and joined AAA Realty Group Inc., brokered by Charles Bonfiglio Jr. and based out of Pembroke Pines, Florida, in February 2017. Since earning his license, Jeff has completed certificates as a Financing Specialist, Technology Specialist, and Property Management Specialist.
Before beginning in the real estate field, Jeff earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Syracuse University and a Masters of Science degree in Marine Biology and Coastal Zone Management from Nova Southeastern University. He has worked in multiple different industries, including administration, healthcare, the marine sciences, and education. Most importantly, Jeff works with people. It’s the main reason he decided to become a real estate agent. His past experiences with agents seemed lacking and he knew he could provide professional quality services while truly connecting with his clientele in order to bring a higher standard of practice to South Florida.
Although Jeff works with all buyers, sellers, and renters, his speciality focuses on the younger generations who struggle with financial situations due to student loan debt. After partially financing both his undergraduate and graduate degrees through the help of student loans, Jeff has first-hand experience when it comes to navigating the consolidation and repayment of these loans. Having been in this situation himself (and purchasing his own first home in 2018), he knows the issues buyers will face and can help them better understand what’s possible from a real estate perspective. Most individuals see student loan debt as an impossible hurdle to homeownership, but it doesn’t have to be, and Jeff wants to help you get over that barrier.
