Northeast Portland is Jack''s real estate epicenter, and it''s also where Jack and his family lead a very active life. As a specialist in the "BIG HAT" neighborhoods (Beaumont, Irvington, Grant Park, Hollywood, Alameda, and Laurelhurst), Jack knows everything there is to know about the area. He is also a member of the Irvington Home Tour Board and coaches soccer at the Laurelhurst Soccer Club.
Before becoming a licensed broker in 2001, Jack worked as a tax and real estate attorney and a general contractor. His legal training includes a JD from Lewis & Clark Law and an LL.M. in Taxation (what he calls tax-nerd school). He worked for several large law firms and in the corporate legal department at the National Association of Realtors. Few brokers have that strong of a legal and tax background to offer their clients. As a contractor and owner of Craftsman Homes, LLC, Jack has also rehabbed several homes in NE Portland.
