"I worked with Jack when relocating with my wife to the area. I was interested in looking at properties in Chapel Hill, Durham and Raleigh and found that Jack had a deep knowledge on the entire area. He spent the time to get to know us and quickly figured out the types of properties that would appeal to us … Jack knows the market and was incredibly helpful through price negotiations as well as home inspection and finding service providers. Most of all Jack was patient with us, responsive to every need and could not have been more pleasant to work with. I have the utmost praise for him professionally and personally." Tom P.
Jack came to real estate in 1994 following a very successful career in modern dance. His transition to a career in real estate took him from performing around the world with Pilobolus Dance Theatre to becoming one of the top producers at Hodge & Kittrell Sotheby's International Realty.
As a Realtor, Jack is in the unique position of having resided in all three of the Triangle's anchor communities: Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. His knowledge of the Triangle as a whole, wealth of experience, and command of real estate processes combined with professional integrity, strong work ethic, and personal attention to his clients are among the qualities that have allowed countless buyers and sellers to trust that they are making well-informed and fully supported decisions. Listening closely to and responding to his clients' concerns and sensitively guiding them through the necessary and sometimes complex steps of the transaction, Jack never loses sight of the importance of a real estate transaction in the lives of his clients.
A North Carolina native, Jack grew up in the small eastern North Carolina town of Enfield but has called the Triangle home for all but four of the past 37 years. He has given back to his community in many ways over the years and is currently on the Board of Visitors for the UNC-Greensboro College of Visual and Performing Arts as well as the board of Triangle ArtWorks. He is also a mentor and reading buddy at Hope Charter Leadership Academy, a volunteer with the Family Promise/Wake Interfaith Hospitality Network, and a summer tour guide at the American Dance Festival.
Jack is a graduate of Woodberry Forest School, received a BFA from UNC School of the Arts (Dance) and a MFA from UNC-Greensboro (Dance and Choreography). When not working or volunteering, he can often be found running trails at Umstead State Park, paddle-boarding on a local lake, or sneaking away to Wrightsville Beach for a quick surf session. Jack and his wife, Robin Harris, feel extremely fortunate to live in an area that offers the influence of major colleges and universities, great public and private schools, a thriving arts scene, a booming creative class, excellent restaurants, and great design. They also appreciate the convenience of RDU International Airport for visiting their four grown children and one adorable grandchild.
