Jai “JP” Patel, is a RealtorⓇ based in Houston, TX.

JP quickly turned his passion for legos into something more meaningful, at the age of 18 he got his first real estate license and went on to study Economics and Finance at the University of Florida. While studying, he interned and was hired at a regional financial firm for high net worth clients as an advisor and portfolio trader. He also started a small business in Gainesville and that ultimately transitioned him into the hospitality industry.
As a Commercial Asset Manager, he was in charge of operations and development for multiple companies of which holdings included: full service franchise hotels, national franchise restaurants, bars, and retail space. Then 2015 happened, JP fell in love and decided to fly around the world and get engaged, after adventures and ring making on the fly, they ended up moving to Houston to eventually start a family.
In 2017, he started flipping houses in Houston, while getting certified as a mortgage loan officer. 2018 marked a transition into real estate full time as an investor and agent. He became a Realtor in Texas, currently with over 360 additional hours of certified real estate education, and has focused on properties that need remodeling or new build construction. He has had a home featured on HGTV’s House Hunters, interviewed by Diana Olick for CNBC’s Rising Risks, and other various publications.

You’re also just as likely to see him at a local brewery, sporting event, networking, or some other local festival around town finding the next best hidden gem HTX has to offer.
