Houston's Men of Style 2020: Jacob Sudhoff

By Mimi Faucett Trahan | March 26, 2020 | People Feature National

Jacob Sudhoff

This past fall, Douglas Elliman, the nation’s second-largest independent residential real estate brokerage company by sales volume, announced that it entered into a joint venture with Houston-based real estate marketing and sales company Sudhoff Companies. Sudhoff Companies, of course, was founded by Jacob Sudhoff in 2010. The team-up named 39-year-old Sudhoff the CEO of Douglas Elliman Texas. “The past year has been full of amazing changes,” says Sudhoff, who welcomed his first child in 2019. The man of many hats pays special attention to his wardrobe, though minimalistic, and his closet contains names like Hermès, Cartier and Etro. He sounds off on his no-nonsense style below.

My perfect day is spent with my daughter, Brinley, and my husband, Jerry... looking at real estate.

In three words, I would describe my style as comfortable, vibrant, sporty.

Barker Black is my favorite shoe designer.

My fashion splurge is always Cartier.

Bow tie or traditional necktie? No tie

Weight lifting keeps me sane.

When I was a kid, I was always wanting to grow up.

If I could turn back time, I would tell myself to slow down.
