Get to Know Me
Jason Hackler’s dedicated interest in history, antiques, and architecture gives him a keen understanding of antique and architecturally significant properties. His first-hand knowledge of restoration and period techniques gives him an edge in both locating a special home for a client and selling a special home for a client. His passion for unique architecture spanning many eras enables him to share the details of a property that might otherwise go unappreciated. Jason’s excitement for historic preservation and his own property endeavors enable him to connect with clients in an unparalleled way.
Jason developed an ardent passion for real estate throughout his entire life. At the early age of four, Jason’s interest in real estate was made clear to his parents at his insistence in visiting the Newport mansions every summer. He paid attention to the design and extraordinary workmanship. Throughout his early schooling, he would often write about architecture and history. By the age of eleven, Jason began not only collecting antiques but also buying and selling antiques at his family’s business, New Hampshire Antique Co-op. Jason worked at the shop on weekends and school vacations, traveled around Vermont and New Hampshire antiquing, visited museums, and attended country auctions.
After college, he attended the Winterthur Museum Institute Program and also worked in the Curatorial Departments at Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth, NH, and Historic Deerfield Museum in Deerfield, MA, focusing on their collections and architecture from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries.
Today, Jason and his family still own and operate New Hampshire Antique Co-op in Milford, NH. As an antique dealer and collector of fine period American and European furniture and fine art, Jason possesses a unique edge in interfacing real estate with his extensive current client base. As a lifelong resident of Southern New Hampshire and a current resident of Peterborough, Jason has an in-depth knowledge of the area. Jason’s wholehearted passion for homes is evident, his commitment to customer relationships is steadfast, and his ability to creatively market properties and identify with clients for their particular needs is proven.
