Jack was born and raised in San Diego and Real Estate has been in his family for three generations. In the eighties, Jack’s grandfather started a commercial & residential brokerage based in Chico California. Jack’s dad is a developer and investor based out of Solana Beach. Jack went to college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and received a degree from the business school in Accounting and Information Systems.
After college Jack moved to Los Angeles to work for Deloitte in their technology consulting practice. Jack quickly learned that the corporate environment was not for him and he took an entrepreneurial turn and started his own personal training and yoga instruction business. Jack taught for three years throughout the Los Angeles area and was fortunate enough to have some celebrity clientele.
Jack always knew that at some point he would get into the family business of real estate and in 2016 he moved back to San Diego and a few months later got his license. He then went to work for a commercial firm in San Diego and worked on a tenant representation team. After gaining some experience Jack wanted a broader perspective on the business so he applied to USD’s Masters in Real Estate program. It was there that he met Patrick Kappel, Patrick was working for a residential brokerage and focusing on 2-4 unit sales. Patrick explained this niche to Jack and offered to have him come in to the office to take a look around. Patrick’s strategy around this niche proved very enticing and Jack joined his team, the Kappel Group.
Jack loves the intricacies that go into a multifamily transaction and also enjoys helping people find the right single-family property for them. Just like all members on the Kappel group Jack believes in empowering his clients with knowledge and education so they have all the tools necessary to feel comfortable with one of the most important transactions of their lives. In his free time, he loves the gym, rock climbing, surfing, snowboarding and cooking.
