A native of NYC, Eli's spent the majority of his adult life living and working in Manhattan where he developed the work ethic and skill set to succeed in business. Eli holds a Bachelor of Arts in Banking & Finance from Hofstra University in New York. He fell in love with Austin, has lived here for over six years and now calls it home.
Eli’s client-focused tenacity, financial acumen, keen negotiating and problem-solving skills bring significant value to the complexity of many real estate transactions.

Prior to Eli’s successful entry into real estate sales, he has been instrumental in helping an internet start-up grow rapidly and launch a successful IPO on NASDAQ.
