Jeff Smith

President | PH: 503-657-3402 | Email

Jeff Smith is the owner and founder of J.T. Smith Companies, our parent company that began in 1991 doing residential real estate development. With over 20 years of experience in the real estate industry, Jeff knows pretty much all there is to know about residential development from start to finish.

What's awesome about Jeff is that he not only knows how to build a great house, he also knows how to build the perfect neighborhood. He's able to look at an area's potential for being somewhere that homeowners will love spending time in as well as an area that's going to be a great location for building equity over the years. Wherever you see Jeff putting up a J.T. Smith home, you'll know it's going to be a great place to live.
