Three classics for sale on Gimghoul Road

“If that house ever comes up for sale, I’m going to buy it.” That’s what Michael Jacobs told his wife, Donna, when they passed by the house at 719 Gimghoul Road in Chapel Hill during a trip to his alma mater in 2005. At the time, the couple was enjoying a football weekend away from Atlanta where Jacobs Capital LLC was founded in 1998. The firm opened an office in San Francisco in 2000. Jacobs moved his principal office from Atlanta to Chapel Hill in 2006. Donna is office manager. In addition to being the Chief Executive Officer of Jacobs Captial, Michael is a part-time professor of Practice of Finance at Kenan-Flagler Business School at UNC-Chapel Hill
