Broker of Record | Managing Partner
office: 215-467-4100 ext. 2
Jared Gruber is the Broker of Record and Founder of JG Real Estate. With a diverse transactional and professional background Jared helps his clients navigate the complexities of real estate transactions – sales, leasing, & property management.
When founding JGRE, Jared recognized a void in the marketplace – the need for a truly full service real estate brokerage. Having emerged as the leader in the Philadelphia Property Management space his vision has come true. Bringing a deal together is the most satisfying thing to him. Whether the deal is a complex purchase transaction or a new property management account, his goal is the same – to conduct business in a responsible and ethical way which ultimately benefits all parties involved. When Jared isn’t working he’s enjoying time with his family. If you live in Fishtown you might see him at Penn Treaty park pushing his daughter at the swing sets or walking his dogs.
Partner | Associate Broker
Gwen, a licensed broker, is the Director of Operations for JG Real Estate and oversees all aspects of the business. A lover of photography, art and architecture, she enjoys the variety that homes in different Philly neighborhoods can offer and seeks to highlight each property’s unique details and features. In the past, she has moved about 8 different times within 3 years (including 3 different states) before finally settling down for good in Philadelphia, so she knows first hand how stressful the housing search process can be and tries to ensure that every one of our clients has the smoothest experience possible.
She has successfully closed multiple sales in the Northern Liberties, Fishtown, Point Breeze and South Philly neighborhoods, specializing in buyer representation for first time home buyers.

Claire’s professional background includes a wide variety of jobs — from office management and event planning to restaurant management, editing, marketing and advertising sales. She received her BA in Communication from the University of Scranton and has called Philadelphia home for the last decade. She’s a planner who loves organizing, both professionally and socially. She and her husband recently bought their first house in Fishtown and when she’s not scheduling apartment showings, she’s playing drums in local bands and talking about what Philly restaurants you should go to.
A Philly transplant (and enthusiast), Erika has lived in several cities on the east coast between the northern Adirondack region and Central Florida. These experiences have given her an understanding of the housing search, whether it is a move around the corner or one of more than 1,000 miles. Though she has moved around a lot, she loves having a warm and welcoming place to call home. She is the first point of contact when you reach out to JG Real Estate, and is excited to help you have an excellent experience finding a place in Philadelphia to call your own!
