Not many real estate professionals boast CPA licensure and experience with a Big Five accounting firm, but it’s precisely this cross-training that makes Jack Urbano such an asset to buyers and sellers. With a mind strategic enough to develop complex tax strategies for both individuals and businesses, and a passion for real estate and design, Jack is uniquely suited to serve clients of all stripes — first timers, upsizers, downsizers, investors, and more. 

Jack’s career shift came after an eye-opening experience with a home purchase of his own. He struggled to find an agent who could listen, communicate, and advise, going through six agents (including one who wouldn’t respond to messages for five days!) before landing on the exact right partner. 

From this, Jack took an important lesson: Buyers and sellers who have a professional, knowledgable advocate on their side have the upper hand. His commitment to providing clients with everything they need to make an informed, educated decision, paired with his talent for strategic marketing, cost analysis, and transaction management, means there are never any unanswered needs, questions, or phone calls. 

A graduate of Chapman University in Southern California, Jack is cut from the Carpe Diem cloth. He loves travel, sports, and entertainment, and he’s a sucker for a good cup of coffee, craft beer and cocktails, or a scoop of ice cream.

With stints at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and at one of New York’s most renowned restoration workshops, Kelly McDonald has forged the type of design career most people only dream about. She’s been an apprentice gilder, a painter of 17th and 18th century European furniture, and has worked alongside luminaries in the fields of interior design and antiques. She even opened her own atelier in San Francisco, where she was commissioned to deliver work for the Sultan of Brunei. 

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Kelly also knows architecture. She has an eye for undervalued properties, and since 1993, she and her artist-designer-builder husband have restored dozens of homes for themselves, friends, and clients. In 2005, they discovered a cluster of forgotten mid-century modern homes designed by the legendary Edward Hawkins, and once again brought them back to life. 

Kelly’s experience across multiple design platforms brings fresh perspective to the challenges of real estate. Better still, her love of hard work and passion for solving problems drive her to continue the lifelong process of learning, giving, and serving.
