    Jack Fine

    Advisor to Board

    Though Nebraskan by birth, Jack spent his early years in Vero Beach, Florida, where he was an all-state athlete in both baseball and football.  The latter earned him a scholarship to Appalachian State College, where he graduated with a BS in Marketing with a Management minor. His service with the U. S. Air Force took him to Southeast Asia, where he was a crewmember on an EC-121 and flew 110 combat missions. Back in private life, he entered real estate, managing apartment homes while pursuing his MBA at the University of Colorado.  Within four years, he was overseeing some 1,200 multi-family and commercial property units for Denver’s top property management firm. Ready for new challenges, Jack entered the homebuilding side of real estate. As part of Medema Homes, he twice earned New Home Sales Person of the Year honors for all Denver homebuilders. Joining market-leader Continental Homes, he was named Marketing Director of the Year. Changes in the builder environment led Jack to become a Realtor/broker with Re/Max, a relationship he would maintain for 21 years. During those two-plus decades, he garnered that organization’s Lifetime Achievement Award and was named to its Hall of Fame. The Homebuilders Association of Metro Denver recognized him as Most Professional Broker/Realtor of the Year. In 2001, he launched Jack Fine Properties in Denver’s Cherry Creek North, diversifying into commercial real estate and investment serving clients and Realtors in the United States and Canada.
