Jose Jacob
Douglas Elliman Real Estate
Jose Jacob has been a professional realtor for over 20 years. He is equally adept in all areas of residential real estate, for both buyers and sellers, as he is with real estate investors and bulk property purchasing. His knowledge of the area and real estate procedures is encyclopedic. There is little about the Queens, Nassau and West Suffolk Counties he doesn’t know.
Jose is a strong believer in service and professionalism. And although your sale or purchase of a home is one of many real estate transactions Jose assists with every year, he never forgets that it may be much more than just a transaction to you.
