Rex Vick, Jr.
Rex Vick graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School in 1993 with an emphasis in real estate, followed by an advanced degree in mortgage banking in College Park, Maryland. Obtaining his real estate broker’s license in 1991, before graduating from UNC, promoted his interest in real estate. He immediately entered the world of financing post-graduation, filling executive positions in three large national banks in North Carolina in his first five years out of school, as well as starting a regional mortgage banking firm in multiple states. Rex issued numerous construction lines of credit to some of the Triangle’s most respected homebuilders. Through these credit extensions, Rex fostered long lasting personal and professional relationships with these highly reputable builders, which continue to consult with Windjam Properties, and build in Windjam Properties’ communities today.
Shortly before establishing Windjam Development Group, Rex developed a golf course and was partner in a golf course management company for the Carolinas. This spurred his interest in residential development and lead to the formation of Windjam Development Group. Shortly thereafter, he created a homebuilding company that would complement Windjam Development in its neighborhoods. As a result, Rex’s extensive financial network and intimate knowledge of the construction industry enabled him to form Sage Built, a residential building company. Sage Built’s team brings over 75 years of homebuilding experience to its homebuyers.
Rex has made it a priority to develop working relationships with his customers. His personal integrity and dedication to customer satisfaction has ensured a strong reputation for the Windjam Properties. In addition, his financial leadership allows for the effective management of client assets throughout each project, giving every client peace-of-mind knowing that their project is being handled with dedication, honesty, and experience. He is also a member in Capitol City Homes, which is a Top 15 homebuilder in the Triangle.
After the formation of Windjam Development Group and Sage Built, Rex established Windjam Properties in an effort to provide the highest level of new home properties sales and marketing. Banks and developers routinely call on Rex to strategically market and sell homes in the North Carolina market. Rex is committed to Windjam Properties becoming the area’s top real estate sales and marketing company for new residential construction and land sales in master planned communities. His leadership role in the sister company, Windjam Development Group, gives the company a strong advantage in land transactions as it allows them to resolve challenging development issues through their extensive contacts with local government agencies and community planners. His expertise in design and development starts in the early phases of the construction process, and at the appropriate time he integrates his advertising team and sales professionals.
