About Jack

Hey there! I'm Jack and let me be among the first to welcome you if you're moving to Nashville! I work in our Green Hills office, overlooking the Hill Center shopping district near downtown.

Nashville is widely recognized as a very friendly place to live, but you'll be happy to know it's a really gay-friendly place to make your new home as well! There are a number of good agents (gay and straight) in our market to serve you so it's hard to go wrong here. But there are a couple of numbers I'd like you to consider as you choose an agent to represent you:

TWENTY TWO: that's the number of years my business partner, Robert, and I have each served as full-time brokers in the Nashville area.

ONE THOUSAND: that's the approximate number of real estate contracts we've successfully negotiated during that time.

We are extremely experienced in negotiating contracts and understand how to get you the best deal our market will bear. Most importantly, we want to help you find the community and home that are the best fit for you and your family. Whether you're looking for a downtown condo, a charming Craftsman in one of our many historic districts, or just want to experience a quiet suburban lifestyle, we've got you covered!

Corporate relocation (particularly healthcare) is one of the largest vertical markets I serve, and I am an approved broker with all major third party relocation companies that serve the Nashville area.

Please reach me anytime via the "Contact Jack" button ~ I'm never too busy to listen.

By the way, once you've gotten settled in, we'd love the opportunity to introduce you to some of our friends here in Nashville... many of whom we've met right here on this site when they first called us about making the move to Nashville!

  • While Jack and Robert represent several custom home builders and understand the new construction process well, they also know the ins and outs of Nashville's older and historic neighborhoods. They renovated a 1930's mission stucco that was featured in two magazines, including a cover story on "Home and Garden Magazine" (they later sold that home to country music artist Dierks Bentley).
  • Jack is the brand manager for two tiny home communities just being completed near Nashville, and is also exclusively representing a LUXURY TINY HOME RESORT DESIGNED FOR THE GAY COMMUNITY. Designer cottages in a serene, wooded setting with hiking trails, saltwater pool & hot tub, pavilions with fireplaces & fire pits to die for!

We relocated from California to the Nashville area and Jack and Robert helped us find the perfect home in Franklin, Tennessee! Their knowledge of the area and level of professionalism are outstanding. It was comforting to know we were dealing with experts in their field. We highly recommend them!" ~ Nita and Jayne

Jack, you are the most responsive and professional realtor I've had the pleasure to work with. We knew that our properties were being marketed and pushed. Some other realtors we've worked with seem to put our property on a website and a sign in the yard and hope for the best. If we have anything else in the Nashville area to sell, you will be the first person we call!

Working with Jack and Robert was a very positive experience. Their tremendous amount of knowledge and experience in the industry enabled them to provide great council through every step of the process. It is clear that Jack and Robert had my best interest as a top priority and I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.

Selling a home after we had already moved away to Pennsylvania presented challenges that we had never experienced in selling 8 homes over the years! We started with a real estate agent selection process that allowed us to select the best person for our home. After narrowing our choices from 6 agents to 3, we traveled to Franklin to interview the 3 agents and assess their plan to market our home. Jack not only impressed us with his plan and experience, earning the ability to list our home, but he did an outstanding job in working with us to prepare the home to list, and then creating the interest and awareness to generate a buyer! From listing to signed contract was only one week! But the upfront process was key and Jack's approach was professional and tremendously effective!

My experience working with Jack was amazing. Just be sure you want to sell your house because he sold mine the day it hit the market, during the Open House. I heard of Jack through a client who sold her house for almost full asking price at the end of July 2012... in a week! She told me "Just do everything he tells you to do". I took her advice, and his, and got almost full asking price for my house also. Do yourself and your family a favor. Hire Jack.

"Purchasing a home in Nashville while living out of state seemed daunting. Jack and Robert made it happen--and quickly--while working around my hectic travel schedule. We highly recommend them."

- Damiano Navanzati

My experience with Jack selling my home was wonderful. I can't imagine going through such a daunting task without their thoughtful and professional guidance. They took a potentially stressful process and set my mind at ease. I enthusiastically recommend them to anyone buying or selling real estate in middle Tennessee.
