Great Jones is a technology-enabled property management platform that introduced a high-powered software and services product allowing it to serve all sizes of property owners scalably, from single-home landlords to large portfolios. The company, founded by CEO Jay Goldklang, Abigal Besdin and Juxtapose, brings a digitally native, consumer-tech lens to what historically have been analog property management processes, from leasing and maintenance to property optimization and ongoing customer service. Great Jones's scale helps single-family rental (SFR) investors buy with more ease and confidence across key markets, without the worry of finding local property managers for each property. Great Jones offers a wide range of services, including marketing and advertising, tenant screening, rent collection, maintenance and repairs, and accounting and financial reporting. The company also provides 24/7 customer support for tenants and owners. In 2021, Great Jones was acquired by Roofstock.
Jay founded Great Jones after serving as VP of Product at 1stdibs, where he helped grow the business from $0 to $150mm GMV. Earlier in his career, Jay led growth initiatives at Seamless and consulted at Bain. Throughout his career, Jay has leveraged technology to improve user experiences in traditional industries, including early-on in trading cards and collectibles.
