I have known Jim since I started as a apartment dirt dog with Trammell Crow Residential in 1988. I was assigned the Triangle market, and moved here to open an office in downtown Raleigh. Soon I found Jim Flink. Even though I had little clue what I was doing, Jim took me under his wing and helped me
In late June 1996 Jim and Nancy moved into the house next to ours on Anglers Cove. We were blessed to have them as our neighbors for the next 15 years. We remember Jim's infectious smile along with the style, grace and charm that he and Nancy brought to our Christmas gatherings and other neighborh
Not only was Jim my all-time favorite person, I was blessed that he and I were best of friends since 1987. I know that Jim was the kind of person that had a million "best friends", and I am happy to be one of the many! I will miss that wonderful man the rest of my life! RIP Jimbo......
I was fortunate to grow up living next to the Flinks in Pittsburgh and hold every family member dear to my heart! I remember Teddy's contagious smile and playful antics always brightened my day. There was something about him that made everyone in his path feel special. Just reading all of your heart
I met Jim in 1991. We became roommates until we both were fortunate to find better roommates. There are way to many memories and stories to share. The special ones that standout involved golf, of course (sharing photo from the 2015 Ryder Cup) I cherish all the times we spent together. I know that Ji
Jim Flink was a lot of things to a lot of people. He was known to inspire, provoke fellowship, love Jesus, and celebrate thanksgiving! Flink had a profound prospective on life and business, one that will forever mold the future of many. He taught me the value of comradery amongst the old and young,
Jim kept a board in his office with words of wisdom and pictures of important events throughout his life. This is one of the sayings. All those who know Jim know he didn't suffer from vanity, instead increased his value throughout his life by his humility and his love of others.
I was heartbroken to learn recently of Jim's passing from his mentee at APG who was reaching out to various contacts Jim had tucked away over the years. Of course, after the anguish of the first few minutes, the conversation turned to what remarkable mentor and friend Jim was and will always be to
I have known Jim and Nancy Flink for almost 20 years. They both became instant friends of ours. I always enjoyed Jim's stories of growing up as a Yooper. He was so proud of being from the Upper Peninsula (UP) and of his family roots. His ability to capture a room's attention. make you laugh and tell
I just saw Jim at our 50th reunion. As we talked, I told him about the first time we played golf. On the first tee Jim hit a drive that is still, over 50 years later, one of the best drives I've ever seen. Jim was a tremendous golfer. A true amateur. Jim was the kind of person you wanted to be ar
There are a plethora of stories about Jim Flink. All good!! We had a guys weekend of golf planned at the NC coast. We had about a dozen men staying in two beautiful homes next to each other overlooking the intracoastal waterway. I made sure Jimbo was in our foursome, which was everyone's desire. He
Jim was a pleasure to work for and work with and a blessing to have in my life. He also had a great sense of humor and loved joking with friends. Just a month or so ago, he asked me if I could 'give' him monkeypox before he took a trip back home to Michigan. He posed in his office for the original s
Jim Flink was larger than life to me and so willing to help me when I first met him. I was graduating from UNC in 1996 and sealed his and Nancy's deck on what I think was the 17th hole over at Preston at the time. I told Jim I wanted to go into commercial real estate, and from that day forward I h
Rare is the individual that one comes across strictly within a business context that substantively impacts you on a personal level. Jim was that person. My father knew Jim for over 30 years and I was privileged to get to know him over the past decade. Being that we're based in Canada, the majority
Jimbo, O' the memories I have of you, us, and others sharing brotherly love, tears, laughter, and HIS word. I have my Jesus Calling you gave me on my desk for encouragement, and now bittersweet reminders of you and HIM. I will forever treasure our times together over a quick phone call, lunch at Bo
My brother lived his life to the fullest, he embraced every moment and made sure laughter was a part of his every day life. No doubt his love was BIG for Nancy, family, friends and most importantly for God, whom he put at the top of his list every single day. I loved my brother so much, we had a s
