Jacob Sudhoff, CEO of Douglas Elliman Texas, took the helm in September 2019 when his decade-old firm Sudhoff Companies joined forces with one of the nation’s largest independent residential real estate brokerages by sales volume, expanding its presence into the state of Texas for the first time.
As CEO of the Texas Region, Jacob is responsible for rolling out the Douglas Elliman brand around the state, with offices located in Houston, Austin and Dallas. In his executive leadership role he oversees the company’s complete suite of services which includes development marketing, builder marketing, traditional real estate sales, relocation and commercial real estate. Sophisticated research and analysis are conducted under his tutelage, providing pertinent market data and information to Douglas Elliman’s clients across the nation.
With over 20 years of industry experience and an integrated approach to real estate sales and marketing, Jacob is a real estate veteran whose vision and entrepreneurship contributed to the transformation of Houston’s residential landscape. Jacob is a former top-producing agent with sales in the billions, which is a rare but beneficial trait for the person at the helm. His extensive real estate expertise includes both residential and commercial sales, capital markets, planning, design and procurement for residential projects, which allowed him to create a niche in luxury high-density residential development.
An entrepreneur at heart, Jacob is involved in multiple businesses which intersect with real estate: CASA, a luxury interior design showroom featuring refined Italian brands, and Vernon G. Henry & Associates, Inc., an urban planning and development consulting firm.
Always dedicated to giving back to the community in which he serves, Jacob has chaired the AIDS Foundation Gala, and is a supporter of Preservation Houston, Covenant House and the Houston Community Foundation. He also invests his time and resources to foster the next generation of real estate leaders through facilitation of an ongoing and robust mentorship and internship program.
