CEO, Hello Living

Eli Karp

Eli Karp is a groundbreaker, courageously leaving behind the ordinary for a promise of what might be. Eli is a pioneer who likes to be first—the first to market, and the first to discover a new concept, technology, or design. Characterized by his energetic innovation, Eli starts trends instead of looking for a path to follow, leading the way with his magnetic force of character, determination, and nerve.

A self-made successful businessman and investor from a young age, Eli’s ventures have included creating a publishing company and investing in FCC licenses for cell towers when he was 21, which he later sold to jumpstart his general contracting company in 2002. Eli discovered his passion for real estate development when he began constructing luxury single-family residences under his general contracting company, which he later expanded into Hello Living. Eli has been honored to speak at various professional conferences, including the Massey Knakal’s 2013 Brooklyn Real Estate Summit and BisNow’s 2014 Brooklyn New Development Frontier, amongst other industry leaders. During his reception of the Young Jewish Professionals Development and Achievement award, Eli was called, “a quintessential example of entrepreneurial boldness.”
