Jack Elkins is a second generation native to the Palm Beaches, with family roots
back in the local corner store businesses of West Palm Beach, and humble
beginnings of self-made entrepreneurs. Being the grandson of Howard Elkins (founder of a now gone store for all types of sporting goods) and Billy Smith (of Billy Smiths Wheel and Brake Alignment), he learned to provide unparalleled service to clients. Jack carries on his grandfather’s’ legacy of catering to the clients needs and specific interests, while always doing what is best for each and every client, while dealing honestly in business.
Growing up in the sporting goods service and also the development/building
world, Jack was exposed to the value of respecting clients, and always elevating experiences to the next level to surpass their expectations. After working with cars, boats, auctions, art, property management, and site management, Jack decided to pull from these experiences and apply all his knowledge to the world of Real Estate.
Joining his family, Jack interned under his mother Bunny, and has since been improving real estate practices for over 15 years. Growing up between Manalapan and Palm Beach, it only seemed natural for Jack to focus on these areas. Fresh out of college, Jack realized how important the Internet would become in real estate for the future and convinced his family to move their platforms, look into internet exposure, and move away from books and hard copies. Looking back, it was a hard task to accomplish, but well worth it. His fresh perspective and local knowledge of the area, from the waterways to the eateries and everything in between, quickly propelled Jack’s real estate career.
From day one, Jack and Bunny were market leaders in their territories in the Palm Beaches. Having record breaking sale after sale, while still paying close attention to each client, they established an unprecedented reputation for excellence in the area of Manalapan/Hypoluxo Island. Believing in their vision of what Manalapan/Hypoluxo could become, they listed and promoted it, when many other agents/brokerages would not even drive to the area. Now Manalapan is one of the wealthiest towns in America, and Palm Beach is even more of a chic and affluent destination to call home.
With the original mission of having the clients best interest at heart always, and empowered by the foundations and principles instilled in him by his family since an early age, Jack has taken the reigns of the family business and taken it to new heights. He continues to grow and succeed in the real estate industry, constantly breaking records by reinventing what excellence means and delivering on it!
Having the vision, working on the vision, living the vision, and delivering stunningly brilliant results!
