About Shane Kirk

With over 100 home transactions under his belt, Shane has helped many people already. Shane started a bit later in the real estate agent business. Here is his story:

I was born in Southern California (So Cal) and have 2 older brothers and a younger sister. I lived in So Cal until my family decided to move to Northern Oregon when I was 3, because my dad wanted to have a farm.

Living on a 45-acre farm was a dream for a young kid like me. Plenty of trees to climb; fields to run in; barns to play in; and plenty of animals to tend and care for. Lots of things to do all the time. And I was the one in my family that was famous for touching the electric fence all the time! I could hear my dad say, after I let out a squeal, “Shane touched the electric fence… again.”

Sadly 4 years later my parents divorced and for the next several years we moved between Oregon and So Cal. With 12 moves over 4 1/2 years it was a crazy time…

Just after my parents divorced is when I got my very first paying job, at the ripe old age of 7. My brothers and I would get up at 5AM to catch the bus to Fuji Farms where we were paid by the pound to pick Strawberries.

After a few moves, and a couple of jobs, we landed again in So Cal.  for the last time just prior to being a teenager. I resided in So Cal for the next 24 years, with another 11 moves and 29 different jobs in there (including 3 companies that I started or acquired), prior to moving cross-country to Durham, NC!

We lived in Durham for 7 ½ years prior to moving to Pittsboro where we have lived for the last 10 years. My job situation has calmed and I have only had 3 positions in the last 17 ½ years including the last 8 as a full-time REALTOR®.

If you are keeping track, I have owned 7 companies and held another 32 jobs. I know that sounds crazy, but some of those jobs were not a good fit for me. Sometimes I worked more than 1 job at a time and others I held for years. As far as moves… 29 different homes so far!

The end result is that I have acquired a vast knowledge across a number of industries. I bring this experience to my current real estate business and believe it makes me a better agent because of it.

Currently my wife and I are raising our twin sons who are 16. My 85 year-old father-in-law lives with us and his 92 year-old brother is moving in soon. My wife of 26 years takes care of all of us while home-schooling our sons (she is a saint!) !
