Hailing from a lineage of real estate experts, James Ruff has been deeply immersed in the world of construction, development, and real estate investment since the late 1980s. Under the guidance of his family’s seasoned investors and developers, Ruff rapidly acquired the skills and knowledge to excel in this competitive field. As a licensed real estate professional in New York City since 2004, Ruff expanded his expertise to Massachusetts and Florida, adeptly navigating the niche market of Co-Op sales through the sales, leasing, and management of his partner’s sponsor units.
Upon moving to New York City, Ruff forged a partnership with Raymond DeMarco, a distinguished Emory Law School graduate and veteran Real Estate Attorney. DeMarco, who served as the Director and in-house counsel for Time Equities’ residential real estate department, mentored Ruff for 17 years. This collaboration led to countless successful sales and leasing opportunities through co-op conversions, and further solidified Ruff’s reputation in the field.
Ruff’s passion for real estate was complemented by his ventures in film, TV production, and music production, where he worked alongside Joseph DeMarco, head of 21st Century Fox Searchlight Films. Joseph DeMarco mentored Ruff in marketing, contract negotiation, and business, introducing him to industry titans like Avy Kauffman and Scott Rudin. Later, Ruff produced work with Grammy winning artists at Sony Music.
