If anyone had of asked Jason Halpern what he wanted to do as a little kid, most likely he would have said, “Build things.” Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs, with him representing the third generation, it is not difficult to understand how he is so savvy when it comes to business.
It is in his genes.
When he became a teenager, he started working in the summertime for His dad, a premier property developer. He wore many hats as he had the opportunity to experience many roles including performing manual labor, all the way to operating as a property manager.
Jason might not have known it then, but this training would serve him well in the future. Later on Jason established his own firm called JMH, in which he focuses on historical, commercial and residential properties. It became a huge success.
His projects include transforming a warehouse in New York City, to an exclusive 340 unit rental apartments and later, sold it for more than 200 million. He has modernized townhomes built circa 1850 into masterpieces individuals are paying top prices, in which to reside.
Although Jason has invested and developed so many buildings in New York, that has not prevented him from extended his ambition to other areas such as Florida.
In Florida, he is building high-end condos on the waterfront of Surfside Beach.
As though that is not enough to keep him busy, Mr. Halpern is also deeply involved with various charity work such as the Trauma and Burn Center located in Westchester Medical Center in Eastern New York.
He is associated with a charity, in which he has contributed time and generous monetary assistance to provide clean water to the people of Nepal and Ethiopia as well.
I guess you can say, whether working or through philanthropy, Jason Halpern believes in giving his all.
