With over 25 years experience in the corporate world, starting a family owned business has become the latest dream fulfilled in Jay’s business career. Prior to establishing Ellis Group Realty, LLC in 2012, Jay was a Corporate Manager for a major retailer in the upper mid-west and then went on to become a Vice President for a large distribution firm in South Florida.

Realizing his business experience could be put to great use in the Real Estate world and having a passion to help others, Jay and his son Jamie thought it only seemed natural to open up their own Real Estate brokerage where both take great pride and joy in working both with Investors wanting to build their portfolio as well as individuals and families buying and selling their homes.
