Jake is incredible to work with. He showed a lot of patience as I looked at everything from super modern to colonial styles all over the city. While other agents may have wavered or given up Jake never did, and he continued to help guide me through the process. When we found the right house he helped move the process and negotiation along extremely fast and efficiently. He is very kind and fun to work with. I would recommend him to anyone trying to buy a property in this crazy housing market, as he was able to help make my wants a reality without the heartbreak of a lost bid. After the house closed Jake also recommended many things that are important once you move in, cleaners, security, etc. and his suggestions always seemed to work out really well. Thank you Jake!

Jake was responsive to what we were needing and looking for. He had our property in contract within two weeks of listing and then helped us find our new home. Jake was quick and helpful to deal with the various issues that happen in buying a home and made sure everything was in good order.

Working with Jake to find our first home was everything we could have hoped for and more. After meeting him at a house we saw on Zillow, we knew he was trust-worthy, intuitive, savvy, and FUN. He made navigating the housing market during a pandemic, on a very tight timeline and budget, an absolute blast. We had a lot of silly questions before we found our house (and after too, haha) but Jake NEVER made us feel silly for asking. He has been there for us at every step of our process; advocating for us as inexperienced buyers, plugging us in to valuable resources, and learning our likes and dislikes immediately.

Jake helped us find our first home in a competitive market while we were living in another state! He's a great communicator and made the whole process feel easy.

I worked with Jake to purchase my first home. We spent an afternoon viewing a few properties I had selected and he threw in some that I hadn't seen yet but were similar. He was knowledgeable and gave honest opinions on the houses we saw. We didn't find a good fit the first weekend but he was quick to respond the following weekend and even set up a couple showings over a holiday (where we did find a house to make an offer on!).

His positive personality and professionalism made him a joy to work with. He was supportive through the negotiation process. He had contacts ready for the inspection and lending process. Overall a smooth experience for what is a big personal life event. I can't recommend working with Jake enough!

Jake was amazing and I am so glad I worked with him. He was very informative at every step of the home buying process. I kept saying he was my “Easy Button” but that is an accurate description of him. Everything was smooth and I felt informed and comfortable.

Working with Jake to buy our first home was a great experience! He was incredibly responsive and personable. We were impressed with his knowledge and the guidance he provided during the process. In addition to that, he goes above and beyond to serve his clients long after closing! From thoughtful gifts, to home-owner resources, and more! We recommend him to everyone we know!
