Spanning 32 years, Jack’s career in marketing and sales began on the American Express Platinum desk, where he honed his skills servicing the credit card company’s premier clientele. After a brief stint learning the trading business as part of an elite team founding the first Schwab Institutional Service Group in Phoenix, Jack was one of the first employees at the brand new Chase call-center, where he developed the marketing for the Chase/Shell, and Chase/British Airways co-branded Visa products. From there, he was recruited to manage two of the top-billing clients at a boutique advertising and public relations firm. His primary client was the developer of large master-planned communities for seniors in Arizona.
Jack's passion for design after a double-major in Communications and Interior Design at Arizona State University eventually led him to Ralph Lauren Home in the Biltmore, where he quickly became one of the top 10 home collection salespersons companywide. He was moved to the flagship showroom in Beverly Hills, where he ultimately worked on the design and furnishing of more than 35 private residences worldwide. Tina Turner, a former first lady, the founder of the Trevor Project, and multiple members of the Saudi and Bahrain royal families were among his many fascinating clients.
After the events of 9/11 halted his projects in Cairo and Riyadh, Jack moved to San Francisco where he began fundraising for local and national causes, chairing more than 25 gala fundraising events, serving on multiple boards including the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art - Northern CA, Golden Gate Audubon, and the St. Andrew's Society of San Francisco. He served on the stewardship committee at Grace Cathedral, prepared meals for Project Open Hand, and built affordable housing with Habitat for Humanity. He successfully raised more than a half-million dollars for GLAAD during his five years on the team that produced their annual awards banquet. Jack has been committed to serving the community since his National Honor Society days in high school. Jack donates at the close of every real estate transaction.
Jack's entire career has prepared him for his current career in real estate. Jack strives to provide a professional, pleasant, and refined experience for buyers and sellers.
I referred Jack to my nephew and niece who were looking to buy their first home in San Francisco. Jack got them pre-approved immediately and found them a home they loved in their desired location. Jack made the transaction smooth, easy and timely. Jack is extremely knowledgeable and diligent and I highly recommend him.— Marsha S.
When we just started looking for our new home, we'd go to open houses during the weekends. We knew what we are looking for, but we had no idea what are the things we need to ask or keep an eye on. After almost six months of doing this, we decided that we might need assistance and guidance a friend recommended Jack, and what an excellent recommendation it was! Jack knows the market was extremely helpful with the millions of questions and requests we had, and in less than two months, we are proud homeowners. Thank you, Jack, for helping us find our first home!— May & Ilan B.
As a contractor and developer, I am always on the lookout for interesting properties for investment. Jack helped identify a project in Nob Hill which had the development opportunities that I was looking for in adding extra square footage to the existing property. Jack was very attentive during the whole process and negotiated the terms of the sale with efficiency and professionalism in order to get a quick close as there was a lot of interest in the property. Jack always goes out of his way to help others and these qualities, it brings a sense of trust and value in a working relationship.— Ross M.
