Jack Cotton, CRS

851 Main St Box 68, Osterville, Massachusetts




Growing up on Cape Cod, Jack found that the supply of scrap lumber from home construction was perfect for building forts and tree houses. “I would retreat to one of my crudely built homes, either in the woods or up in the trees, and all would become right in my world,” Cotton remembers. “I call that the treehouse feeling.” In 2005, he purchased a custom treehouse from one of the premier builders in California and arranged for it to be trucked across the country, along with a tree trunk. “I have it set up in my front yard,” he shares. “It reminds me daily of what drives me in this business and why it is so important to help other people achieve that treehouse feeling.” Starting a real estate company in his college dorm room 49 years ago, he is known for his integrity and discretion, coupled with a low-key and consultative style. With a donation creating the Cotton Center for Real Estate Studies at Cape Cod Community College, Cotton is also a certified instructor with the Residential Real Estate Council (CRS organization), ICF certified coach and Amazon bestselling author. “Most people in the real estate business are in it as a means to an end,” he observes. “For me, it is the means and the end.” He is a spouse, father and grandfather, an avid cyclist and a US Coast Guard, 100 ton licensed captain. He loves navigating the nooks and crannies of Nantucket Sound and neighboring islands throughout the summer.
