Previously a dairy farmer in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Jeff made a drastic career change into the home building industry. After starting his career as a Realtor working with builders to buy and develop land, Jeff founded Keystone Custom Homes in 1992, selling 12 homes in the first six months and never looking back.
In 1997, Jeff Rutt took his entrepreneurship to another level when he founded HOPE International, a network of Christian microfinance institutions operating in 16 countries worldwide. The organization offers micro-loans and savings programs to poor individuals in third world countries, and has helped more than 400,000 entrepreneurs since it began.
Keystone Custom Homes was named one of the top 100 home builders in the nation, is a three-time winner of the America's Best Builder title from Builder Magazine and is building in 44 communities throughout Pennsylvania and Maryland. Keystone Custom Homes also participates in Homes for HOPE, a program of HOPE International which started in 1998, and operates in nine states nationwide to build homes which profits go to HOPE International.
