Who we are

We have a commitment to the long term viability of the nation's stock of affordable housing.  

A very brief history...

Since the company’s founding in 1994, Zeffert has grown to employ as many as 60 highly qualified, talented individuals across the country with its headquarters located in St. Louis, Missouri.  Under the strategy of its founder, Bob Zeffert, the company grew an average of 20% year-over-year.  After twenty years Bob retired and new leadership adapted his successful legacy with modernized goals and technology.  

Consecutively since 2015, Zeffert has served the affordable housing industry more than any prior year in its history by achieving record levels of production and sales.  As the only permanent Chief Executive Officer since Bob passed the torch, Jeffrey Promnitz credits this quickly scaled growth to more than new tools, it's the people. "The strongest performances come from those that love doing what they do.  For our Associates, this isn't just a job.  Each of us believes in the value of our individual work and the power of a team."  Read his welcome letter here.  Every client and associate has an open door to our CEO at anytime.
