Advisory Board Member Profile – Jeff Puffer

Being afforded real time property data that is confirmed quarterly by the top brokers in each region is a core benefit of AIR’s Advisory Boards.
That’s how Jeff Puffer, SIOR, just one of the top producing brokers on the San Fernando Valley Advisory Board, sums up the benefits of the group.

Jeff speaks from rock solid experience and personal brokerage production. A Senior Vice President of Delphi Business Properties, Inc. in Van Nuys, Jeff is a 14-year veteran of commercial real estate brokerage, having begun his career with Delphi. At that long-standing AIR member firm, Jeff focuses almost exclusively on the San Fernando Valley market where his expertise is essential in what he terms a “high demand, low supply” submarket.

Commenting on the Advisory Boards, Jeff said: “The Advisory Boards provide AIR brokers with extremely accurate market data which includes leasing availability and transactional information, along with transactional sale information. And, in contrast with competing products in the industry which do not have the broker’s best interest in mind, having trustworthy, confirmed data by the brokerage community itself is critical in an era when the public has a lot of information at their fingertips via the Internet.”

Jeff’s interest in quality data and accuracy is revealed in the numerous closed transactions to his credit. This was demonstrated recently when he represented Vivitech, a third party resale company, in its lease of a 46,500 square foot industrial facility at 15392 Cobalt St. in Sylmar. Lease consideration was $1.8 million.

Jeff is a graduate of UCLA where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a Business specialization. Additionally he performed as an outside linebacker for the Bruins football team, which included appearances in the Cotton and Aloha Bowls. Jeff’s services are advanced by his special skill stemming from his attaining his commercial pilot’s license shortly after college.

Jeff and his wife, Jill, and their sons, RJ, 9, and Carson, 7, reside in El Segundo. In his leisure, Jeff enjoys traveling with the family and coaching his children’s athletic teams.
