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.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Overlook, Portland, OR.
      Jack helped me find an investment property that was in foreclosure. He was able to provide an extensive list of comparables to help me arrive at a price I was comfortable offering and I won the sale in a sealed auction. He also was happy to recommend contractors who were able to provide estimates for building system repairs. All in all, a great experience and I would recommend Jack without hesitation.  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $700K in Irvington, Portland, OR.
      Quite simply, JACK IS THE BEST. We are in our dream house because of him.

      First, a little background. Jack was staked out (as a favor to another agent friend of his) at a fixer-upper that my parents, in from out of town, my husband, and I were "trespassing" on. Really, we were just peering in the windows, but Jack opened the door wide and invited us to have a look around. I was expecting chastisement. When we took our leave, we also took a business card from him, though we wouldn't be in the market for a house for another two years.

      As the time came closer for us to start fantasizing about houses, if not shopping for them, I found among my bookmarks a site, www.bighatrealestate.com, not remembering how I had run across it in the first place. It winnowed all the listings down to the fabulous older places that I love. There were two that really caught my eye, and when I sent email inquires to Jack both times, he responded within the hour.

      Karma had served Jack well, so, when the long-awaited time came and we had our down payment saved up, we started working with him. He encouraged us to go to a bunch of open houses, just to start to be able to recognize features that we liked and didn't.

      One of the dream houses that had cropped up on his website was relisted. We arranged a showing as soon as possible. Jack called us that night, letting us know that a bid had been submitted, so he invited us over to his house at 9pm (!) to fill out the paperwork and submit ours. With his sound advice, our bid was accepted and the harrowing process (anyone who was as emotionally attached to a house as I was knows the agony of inspection/appraisal) began.

      Jack was great, I must say, at "managing" the very different personalities of me and my husband. My husband was more stoic and loads more practical, while my needs for reassurance led me to wonder whether he'd lose patience. Not the case. He picked up the phone nearly every time and touched base during the post-inspection doldrums. His humor also kept my self-imposed drama in check.

      Go with this guy. He has a Master's in Tax Law and loads of experience. He lives in the area he deals in, and so knows it well. We don't have kids, but he does, so he can probably speak knowledgeably to school concerns, too. Just stellar!! I'm honored to call him a neighbor and friend now.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Central Beaverton, Beaverton, OR.
      Jack and I hit it off from day one, he was very easy to talk to and friendly. This was my first time buying a house and I had no idea what I was getting into, naturally I had a lot of questions. He was available whenever I needed him and always could find an answer. He did a great job of giving me a lot of houses to look at and catering to my needs. I never felt rushed or that Jack was trying to force a house on me. I will definitely be going with Jack when I get my next house, not only because of his great work, but because I consider him a friend now.  MoreLess
