Languages Spoken:      KOREAN, ENGLISH

Born and raised in Seoul, Korea, Jeff Yi came to the United States as an international college student in 1989. Settling in New York, he decided to stay for good as he saw many opportunities to pursue his American dream.

Jeff started and ran several successful retail and service businesses. One of his stores has been in business in Greenwich Village for over 12 years. His own success led him to obtain his real estate license and pursue real estate as a full-time career, leading to his association at Halstead Real Estate. Jeff’s initial achievements in real estate led him to become an active real estate investor himself. His entrepreneurial spirit and understanding of value and quality have allowed him to use his talents to help other people purchase and invest in real estate.

A previous career as a mortgage broker has given him a full understanding of the mortgage process and the financial markets. Many of his customers rely on his expertise and trust him to provide them with up-to-date relevant information on the new construction and conversion condominiums throughout New York.

Fluent in Korean, Jeff is particularly adept in helping buyers and sellers from Korea navigate the local New York market. He has been very successful in finding investment properties for these buyers in new construction and conversions properties that meet their buying criteria.

Jeff is married and the proud father of a son and two girls. In his spare time, Jeff keeps in shape as a marathon runner and active member of New York Road Runners.
