About JeffreyEdit

Jeffrey, a snobbish realtor who is also the Ropers' next-door neighbor in The Ropers series, is very opposed to the Ropers, namely Stanley, which he sees as "boorish", moving into the vacant condo next to his. When Helen answers the ad which was put in by Jeffrey's long-suffering, but down-to-earth wife Anne Brookes (Patricia McCormack), who not only is much more open to the idea of the Ropers moving next door to them, but becomes fast friends with Helen, it is also revealed in the show's pilot (later syndicated as a Three's Company episode), he is not a third-generation namesake, when his wife Ann chides him for the "III" in his name when his father's name is actually Al!! He is forced grudgingly to sell them the condo after his son David innocently reveals the condo isn't sold to someone obvious effort by Brookes to keep the Ropers out. Eventually, as the series moves on, Jeffrey slowly begins to warm up to the Ropers, even tolerating the boorish Stanley.
