Alex Jacobson, an entrepreneur and Real Estate investor, currently is President and CEO of Jacobson Realty, New York Equestrian Center as well as Long Island’s premier resort, New York Beach Club.
Born in Russia then emigrated to the US when he was one, Alex has always seen the big picture, “The American Dream” so to speak. He is fluent in two languages, Russian and English and is a world traveler. But his love for the South Shore and Real Estate kept him close to home throughout his life.
Raised in the Five Towns of Long Island, NY, graduating from Lawrence High School, he then went on to NYC Interboro Institute where he received his Associates Degree, graduating Summa Cum Laude. Strongly influenced by his father, Alex pursued his first career in the eye care industry working as a NYS Licensed Optician for Sterling Optical. He then went on to owning a Sterling Optical franchise later for Macy’s Vision Express in Herald Square NY as well as managing an Eye to Eye Vision Center in Roosevelt Field Mall Garden City, NY.
His original love and later career would take him in the direction of real estate. In 1998 while working full time Alex started investing in Real Estate. Then in 2001, Alex opened Jacobson Realty, a commercial and residential real estate brokerage and development firm on the South Shore of Long Island. In 2008, Alex served on the Board of Directors for Long Island Board of Realtors/LIBOR. Since then, Alex has ventured into larger development projects that brought him to owning two key properties and companies in his vast portfolio, New York Equestrian Center/NYEC and New York Beach Club/NYBC. Today NYEC is a newly built state of the art indoor equestrian center where many call home as it is the only horse stable left in the town of Hempstead. The south shore community utilizes this facility for their horses, riding lessons, competitions, horse rehabilitation, occupational therapy for children with special needs, trail rides in the 775 acres on Hempstead Lake State Park and so much more.
NYEC is proud to have several accolades including the Best of the Best on Long Island Award as well as the Business Pride Award in 2016.
New York Beach Club is the latest project for Alex to bring a community together in a beautiful five star location with beach, sun, and fun activities for families that again, will want to call their home for the summer months
Alex is married with two children and resides on the South Shore of Long Island. When he finds some downtime it is most certainly spent with his family and friends. Hobbies include boating, beach time, and water sports.
Their continuous efforts and generosity to make Long Island a great community include numerous donations to local charities and investments that work exponential in numbers.
