Jason Halpern, Founder and managing partner of JMH Developments is now known as one of the top boutique developers in the world. Halpern had a recent interview with “The Real Deal”, a journal that talks about business and the best of the best when it comes to leadership, innovation, and of course it’s exclusive to real estate. Halpern stole the hearts of all motivated developers when he was open to discussing his travel between the major cities that he is building in with JMH Developments.
The primary cities Halpern is after include Miami Beach, Manhattan, and Brooklyn. Always on the go, Halpern knows that it’s all about hustling, which has enabled him to stand behind more than $500 million dollars in project since 2007. Whether there are developments in residential or commercial real estate, Halpern can get the job done. Striking deals with some of the top companies like Kushner and Rockpoint, he has put himself in a winning position around the clock.
Halpern is no stranger to luxury, and when he is building, the luxury is first and foremost regardless of the city he’s working in with his team. Striving to be the biggest and the best is ideal for Halpern, in that he doesn’t know any different. Taking the time to write the strategies and lay the groundwork for each property has made Halpern a household name in real estate around the world. His developments seem to be the models to beat, but he’s modest about it.
One of the things that is most notable about Halpern is that he lives where he works. Halpern could easily live in a much larger home, but he chooses to have his home and his work all in the same place. This labor of love, 184 Kent Street is the cream of the crop in terms of apartment buildings that he has developed over the last several years. It’s safe to say that he is comfortable with his development and that he’s confident in the team he has hired to do the job.
Halpern is currently engaged to be married, and has a teenage son from a previous marriage. Halpern loves to race cars, go scuba diving with his son, and most importantly he loves to develop building after building.
