My name is Jason R. Carroll. I'm a real estate developer who used to be an architect. I currently serve as Vice President of Acquisitions and Development at PIRHL, a multifamily real estate development company based in Cleveland, Ohio. Over the past 20 years, I've been involved in a leadership capacity in completed transactions totaling over $700 million—spanning nearly every aspect of real estate development, from finance to design. My specialty is creating value in underutilized assets. More detail on my professional life can be found on LinkedIn.

To keep myself sharp (because a person doesn’t really understand something unless they can explain it simply), I teach real estate investment and development to graduate students at Kent State University's College of Architecture and Environmental Design.

Lest my analytical side grow too dominant, I try to stay creative though photography, travel (with my wife and two children), reading, drawing, a keen interest in all things design, and an ongoing amateur attempt to study philosophy. I'm an avid tech junkie, love collecting (and using) vintage audio equipment and electronics, and can make espresso that gives any barista a run for their money. I have a number of other hobbies as well, but why would I take your time with all of that?

I'm an alumnus of Cornell University (graduate) and Kent State University (undergraduate), and currently reside in Shaker Heights, Ohio—a beautiful, old, first-ring suburb of Cleveland.
