Real estate first appealed to Jeff Digel because it combined architecture, finance, geography, and economic systems. As he built his career, he was drawn to the investment side because he found it drew on his skills as a calculated risk taker and salesperson.
As a co- founder and Executive Vice President of iStar Financial Inc., Jeff helped build the company’s investment team and originated over $3 billion in structured finance assets.
In Figure Eight Properties, Jeff recognized the chance to bring together the disparate skills of a group of real estate professionals to form a company that provided a personalized, concierge-level service that larger companies cannot provide their clients. He is interested in all types of real estate investing, focused primarily in New England.
A resident of West Hartford, CT, Jeff, co-founded Covenant Preparatory School, an independent, interfaith, tuition-free middle school for boys from under-served families in the Hartford area.
