Philip W. Jalufka
Philip Jalufka is a veteran of the U.S. Army’s special operations, West Point graduate, author, and business leader. From a car accident that nearly ended his life to a series of difficult challenges, he has learned to stay true to a vision and become an inspiring leader.
He currently serves as CEO of Legacy International, a company he founded and cultivated to worldwide success. Legacy International is a residential and resort sales and marketing firm that specializes in executing sales platforms and processes for home builders and developers of master-planned communities. He has built a network of world-class strategic partnerships with a single underlying goal:
With Philip’s real estate and sales leadership, the company represents an active portfolio of more than $1B in annual sales revenue.
In July 2018, Philip organized Legacy Performance Capital (LPC), an asset management firm, that now resources four to five micro-market real estate ventures per year, with a current center of gravity in Texas.
In September 2020, Philip announced that Legacy International executed a Builder Developer Services Expansion Initiative with the #1 real estate firm in the world, Keller Williams (KWRI), once again demonstrating real estate leadership.
Jalufka proudly served his country as a commissioned, special operations aviation officer in the U.S. Army. Captain Jalufka flew the Chinook helicopter and led highly specialized military teams.
Prior to his military service, he received Bachelor degrees in Economics and Political Science from the United States Military Academy at West Point. While serving in the U. S. Army, Philip earned an MBA from Embry Riddle University.
Philip lives by the ideal that, “at the forefront of all we do, the greatest gift we have is the ability to serve and/or give back!”
As a veteran of military service, Philip is a proud supporter of Heroes For Freedom, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping veterans and first responders. Since 2008, Philip and the Legacy Organizations he leads have been raising money in a variety of ways. A percentage of every dollar made from sales at all the engaged residential communities is contributed to the Foundation in order to resource various Warrior events and personal needs throughout the year. This initiative allows every Legacy Team Member to know they are changing lives in meaningful ways.
“LEADING WITH YOUR LIFE EQUATION: How to Be Indestructible Indispensable & Unstoppable” reflects a life’s worth of lessons that cross so many experiences and struggles to overcome: personal, academic, military, and business. Through it all, Philip developed a “Life Equation” that combines the elements of his success and experience with a variety of teams. He pulled together his story—along with those of many others—to provide readers of all ages and at any stage of their life with a formula to guide their lives in the direction they want.
For nearly 30 years, Philip has been joined, supported, and sometimes challenged in his life pursuits by his wife, Chris. Their marriage is a true partnership of love, respect, and shared values. They have two daughters, both currently in college, who have demonstrated their own unique strengths and paths to personal success.
