Rex Vick, Jr. is the owner and founder of Windjam Development Group, Windjam Properties, and Sage Built, collectively known as the Windjam Companies. He is also a Builder Director on the Board of Directors for the Home Builders Association of Durham, Orange, and Chatham Counties.
Born and raised in Wilson, North Carolina, Rex has lived in the Triangle since 1989, and as such he feels a special attachment to the area and its growth. He enjoys being an active member in the community by volunteering locally, coaching his daughters’ sports teams, and as a member of the Board of Trustees at St. Francis United Methodist Church.
Rex graduated from the UNC-Chapel Hill Kenan-Flagler Business School in 1993 with an emphasis in real estate, followed by an advanced degree in mortgage banking in College Park, MD. 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 was then presented with the opportunity to develop a local golf course and went on to become a partner in a golf course management company for the Carolinas. This project spurred his interest in residential development and lead to the formation of Windjam Development. Shortly thereafter, it also made sense to create a homebuilding company that would complement Windjam Development in its neighborhoods. So, through his extensive financial network and intimate knowledge of the construction industry, Rex formed Sage Built, a residential building company. In the impersonal business of home building, he has made it a priority to develop working relationships with his customers, while his personal integrity and dedication to customer satisfaction has ensured a strong reputation for the company.
After the formation of Windjam Development Group and Sage Built, Rex went on to establish Windjam Properties in an effort to provide the highest level of property marketing and sales. He 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.
Rex is committed to Windjam Companies being the “developer and builder of the Carolinas”.
