History of Jack and Landlords:
Calvin Brock, a former commercial real estate leasing agent, business owner, and world wide known former professional boxer and Olympian, founded Jack and Landlords. Although Brock’s experience was in commercial leasing, Brock discovered that on the residential leasing side that security deposits, which were equivalent to approximately one to two months of rent, were barriers for many employed prospective tenants seeking to have a place to live. And with prospective tenants being unable to provide a security deposit (the jack), many landlords were left with a number of vacancies. So Brock created Jack and Landlords to help both tenants and landlords bridge the gap to occupancies.
