I hired Jack to come out to my home and give me a real world appraisal of what it could actually sell for, not what a cookie cutter appraiser pulls from his/her formula. I liked him so much, and was so impressed by his knowledge, I decided to hire him to sell the home for me. From the first call to the last call, text or email, Jack responded to my inquiries very quickly, thoughtfully and thoroughly with accurate and reassuring information. This was the most important trait I required in a real estate professional and Jack delivered every single time. Jack obviously knew what he was doing so I decided to just let him steer the ship and I took most if not all of the wise advise he offered. He really has a knack for negotiation, although he's not pushy or arrogant. He has a great ability to help you see outside your own bubble and look at how the home buying/selling process works in a much more subjective way, removing emotion and personal bias from the situation. I would recommend Jack to anyone buying or selling in a heartbeat. He's reasonable, competent, friendly, knowledgeable, available and most importantly, he has something not all that common anymore, common sense. My house sold for within $1000 of what he thought it was worth. I was extremely pleased with the entire experience and will definitely use him again in the future.

Jack was the buyer's agent for a home I was selling. He was fair, responsive, and very helpful throughout the process. I was so impressed that I had him represent me as the buyer's agent when I bought my next home. I've recommended him to my friends and family.

I grew up in Traverse City and have long wanted to return. Finally last summer, my husband and I bought a house in Slab Town. My sister is a local architect in TC, so she recommended that we contact Jack to help us find a house. Within 3 days with Jack on our team, we had found our house! Jack took care of everything--finding listings, negotiating with the owner, building inspectors. We don't yet live in the house as we are still working full time in the Boston area, so jack has also helped us find an excellent property manager. We will be moving to Traverse City and to our sweet house in a year or two. Jack is the best! I would recommend him to any/everyone!

Jack will get it done for you. He is honest and helpful in all your real estate needs. Jack helped us with a number of sales and purchases and he went the extra mile to complete the transactions.

We purchased a home and sold a home through Jack and would recommend him to anyone for exceptional service as a Realtor in the Northern Michigan area. He not only got a us a terrific price when selling our home, he negotiated a great price on the home we purchased. My husband and I feel that we could not have gotten a better price on either transaction. His negotiation skills are amazing. Plus, he is just a delight to be around. That helps immensely when going through the stressful process of buying and selling a home. We had a wonderful time with Jack and were extremely pleased with his services. HIGHLY recommend him.

We didn't even know we were moving! Jack called us up to tell he found a house we would adore, we went to look and he was right. His memory and ability to understand people is amazing! We are so happy in our new home.
