As a team member of 'The Luxury Three', Cary Lee Hackett is proud to hail from our nation's capital, Washington D.C. However, he has been residing in South Florida for over 36 years and now considers himself a true Floridian.

A real estate investor since the age of 20, Cary bought his first home in Key West having relocated there as the national training director for a company headquartered on the island. He knew real estate was his destiny when he passed the course at the University of Maryland the year before. After purchasing his next property in Fort Lauderdale, Cary then moved to Grandview Heights in West Palm Beach where he purchased another home – a fixer upper he restored to its original grandeur. He also quickly organized a cleanup of the then crime-ridden neighborhood as founder and president of The Grandview Heights Citizens Association and saved Flamingo Park. For all his efforts, Cary was honored with the prestigious Jefferson Award and a Cary Lee Hackett Day was proclaimed in the city.

Since then, Cary has bought, renovated and sold numerous homes in both Florida and New York. In 1984 Cary started his Landscape and Home Design Company which he sold last year. He became an expert in indigenous plants and the go-to creator of the most luxurious gardens for his affluent and celebrity clientele.

Cary possesses a special way with people. He knows how to listen and works diligently with his clients to assist them in both the buying and selling process. He invests the time and resources needed and remains focused on their ultimate goals. An avid researcher, Cary has an in-depth knowledge of local South Florida real estate markets from Miami to Jupiter. Putting it succinctly, Cary puts his passion for real estate to work for his clients!

On a rare day off here in paradise, it's likely you'll find Cary gardening at his property on the North End of Palm Beach or walking the beach saving baby sea turtles.
