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.

Gwen, a licensed broker, is the Director of Operations for JG Real Estate and oversees all aspects of the business.

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.
