Jason speaks English and French
“Just as the wave can not exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience that is going on around me” – Albert Schweitzer.
James Felt once said, “I have an affectionate feeling for the city – or, rather, I’m in love with it.
Aside from the excitement, magic, and so on, if there were ever a place where the world’s
conscience has reposed, it’s New York City”. Jason Stine says the same about Miami Beach.
Jason found his great uncle’s quote many years ago in a newspaper interview. For more than 100 years, the Felt family, which is his mother’s lineage, have been involved in property in Manhattan. Their expertise has ranged from brokerage, development, investment, and management to city planning and zoning in harmony with preservation and rehabilitation.
Irving, James’ brother, conceived of Madison Square Garden’s re-location project in the 1960s. He was President of Madison Square Garden Corporation, who named the “Felt Forum” in his honour. During that time he orchestrated the purchase of the New York Knicks basketball and New York Rangers hockey teams. Both Jason’s great uncles were actively involved in arts and culture, civics, and philanthropy.
This is the foundation upon which Jason has built my career in property. Yet instead of doing so amid Manhattan’s skyscrapers in city streets, it was Miami Beach’s palm trees on white sands along the azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
However, it was across the Atlantic Ocean – along the Seine and Thames – where Jason began an international career round 20 years ago with IBM at their EMEA headquarters in Paris and main office in London. Consulting in wireless technologies with global clients included trips to Asia Pacific. While responsible for marketing in the Distribution sector, they formulated social media strategies for luxury brands and hotel groups.
Both in the USA and Europe with IBM, starting in 2000, they launched a collaboration with Tririga. They developed solutions for real estate, facilities, and capital projects management. That venture led to IBM’s acquiring Tririga. Above all, Jason had the good fortune to live in two of the world’s most celebrated cities for architecture, art, and design. This ignited a passion for real estate and fuelled the drive to keep a family promise.
