About

I joined RE/MAX Orillia Realty in 2007 and serve both buyers and sellers in Simcoe County and Muskoka.

Born and raised in Orillia I not only know the area but, truly love this region. I believe we all have a part in making our community a better place to live and I have enjoyed assisting many individuals, groups and organizations.

In 2012 I was surprised to be one of several resident in Orillia to be a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Medal recognizing the efforts of individuals in Canada who serve their community.  I originally tucked this away with a bit of embarrassment knowing how hard many others serve this community but,  I mention it here as I am dedicated to my buyers and sellers in the same way as I am dedicated to community service.

I spent over 45 years in radio before retiring from broadcasting and during those years it provided me with the opportunity to not only meet thousands of people in the area, but also to have assisted countless groups and organizations along the way.  In 2000 was awarded the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Golden Ribbon Award for Outstanding Community Service by an Individual Broadcaster in Canada.

I am currently part of an amazing group of volunteers involved in the Building Hope campaign.  Building Hope will be a community services hub located in a new building to be built at 75 Queen Street in Orillia.  Building Hope will provide emergency shelter and support for men, women and families in the Orillia area as well as supportive housing, and services that will lead to real wellness and independence for the less fortunate.  I am currently on a mission to raise $10,000 for the Building Hope campaign through referrals in real estate.  For each referral that comes my way, a portion of the sale in real estate goes directly towards Building Hope.  I am never too busy for your referrals, so please contact me with the names of those you refer to me.

Most Sunday mornings you will find me as part of the volunteer team at Connexus Community Church where each Sunday we create an amazing environment for family worship at the Galaxy Movie Theatre.

Helping others in the community is what I’ve tried to do all my life and helping others with their real estate needs is part of what I love doing at RE/MAX Orillia Realty.

My goal is to serve you in a professional and courteous manner that will have you saying to others “Get Jack!”

I look forward to working closely with you to accomplish your home buying or selling requirements.
