Located in Oakland, California, since 1988, Jay-Phares Corporation (“JPC”) is a real estate brokerage, property management, development, and consulting firm. Its geographic area of interest is the San Francisco Bay Area. JPC’s primary focus is on the rehabilitation and redevelopment of core urban properties, typically in communities with high percentages of minority population, and often with significant social problems. JPC’s property rehabilitation and redevelopment operations are augmented by a construction affiliate (California General Contractor, License No. 841307) and ownership in a licensed private patrol company, Premiere Protective Service (PPO# 16197).
The two principals in the firm have a combined total of over sixty years experience in commercial real estate and have in past capacities been involved in the development and management of approximately three hundred commercial and residential real estate projects. In addition, a facilities management group was created to administer maintenance for our managed properties. Our facilities management arm, headed up by Gabriel Ortega developed into a commercial and residential tenant improvement group. Mr. Ortega is the Senior Maintenance & Construction.
