James Wade Pack was raised in Jonesboro, Ark. Friends know him by many names including James, James W, Jim, Wade and just Pack. On a family trip to New England in 1969, he became enamored with Middle Tennessee. This was where he wanted to live. It took a while to get here; he previously lived in Memphis, Dallas, and Knoxville. He moved permanently to Brentwood in 1999.
He is a multi-engine, instrument rated pilot and at an earlier age considered aviation as a career. Kids and life came first, so aviation continued as a hobby.
His first job as a teenager was washing cars, driving a wrecker, and general errands at a Lincoln-Mercury dealer. After that, during college, he began working at St. Louis, Mo., based Superior Forwarding Co. He started as an Over, Short & Damaged clerk and eventually became terminal manager. He has built homes, invested in real estate, and started several small businesses. One of those was Showcase Kitchens in Jonesboro, Ark., where his interest in building continued.
He counts his hundreds of friends as a great asset and hopes to provide excellent real estate services to them as well as new clients.
