Jeff Lewis was born in Orange County, California, on March 24, 1970. He graduated from college in 1993 and started working immediately as a real estate agent.
Lewis considers himself a driven individual. At one time, his entire business consisted of buying and selling homes for a profit after renovating and designing the interiors. Reportedly, one of the homes he purchased and sold netted him a million in profit alone. In 2007 after the housing market crashed, Lewis began diversifying his career to include more than house flipping while he sold his holdings.
