House sales are often the biggest financial transaction that an individual or family will make in their lifetime. It's very important to me that I provide my clients with "above and beyond" service and "better than expected" results. I hope you will have the same great experience with your next real estate transaction!
"My husband and I have worked with Jake on both sides of the table, as both a seller and a buyer. We had a wonderful, smooth, pleasant closing in both cases. In the decline of the market we were able to hold our own, selling our first home in just 20 days. Then we purchased our dream home at a dream price. Jake is a very effective agent in this real estate climate." - Katie S.
"We asked Jake to help us find a reasonably priced condo in Jacksonville Beach. My price cap was small but Jake treated my wife and me like we were purchasing a multi-million dollar property. His attention to detail was outstanding. And he was professional enough to know when we needed time at the properties to talk without him. In other words he was attentive but not pushy. I would recommend him without reservation." - Steve Desorbo
"Jake worked closely with my husband and me as we searched for and found our "perfect" home. He is both knowledgeable and personable. He has patience and isn't pushy which is very important to me. This was a big purchase and he respected the fact that we had to be sure...hence we looked at a lot of properties. He listened to what we were looking for and did an excellent job of selecting properties to show us. I was so impressed with him, that we will utilize him when my Mom makes the move to Florida. Thanks for excellent service!" - Sydney S.
Jake represented the seller on a condo I was buying in Jacksonville Florida, he impressed me so much with his knowledge and common sense approach that I have used him as my agent on pursuing other real estate ventures. I would not hesitate in recommending Jake to any friends or family for real estate representation....buying or selling." - Frank Hillin
"Jake was highly recommended to me by a friend when I was in need of a Real Estate agent. After working with him on my home purchase, I understand why he was so highly referred. He is professional, knowledgeable, and dependable.
Never pushy, Jake had the patience to work with us through many viewings until we finally found “the one”. Jake is an agent who will listen to your requests, follow up, and guide you through the whole process. Any buyer or seller would be well served by making the decision to hire Jake. He is the agent I will have handle all of my future real estate transactions." - John Byrd
"Jake was my buying realtor in 2007 and selling realtor in 2010 after we moved. He was personable and had great knowledge of different areas around beach and intercostal area. Wasn't pushy and always available." - Adam Cartwright
"My husband and I have and would recommend Jake to anyone! He helped us find the home of our dreams. His immediate availability and guidance were crucial. He was a true partner in the home selection process. Jake is professional yet enjoyable to spend so much time with."
"Jake helped us find our perfect home! We were in contract on 2 different houses, which both fell through due to various issues. Jake was able to help us exit those contracts very smoothly, and he stuck with us until we finally found the one. Not many people would go through what Jake went through with us and stay on course. His service was dedicated and his persistence was remarkable. I would certainly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home anywhere in the Jacksonville area." – Margie Eckhardt
"Jake is very professional and easy to work with. He responds promptly with any issues and questions. Jake was extremely helpful in facilitating repairs for our home while we were still living out of state. He made the transition for us very smooth and went above and beyond to take care of last minute issues that occurred during closing. I would definitely recommend using Jake for selling or buying your home!" – James Freidenstein
"I was an absentee owner, and Jake treated every problem as though it were his own. He found repairmen, helped remove trash and other things that I just couldn't do easily from hundreds of miles away. He elevated my opinion of Realtors." – Dennis Corrick
"Jake helped us during all phases of the sales process with our property. He was extremely knowledgeable of the area and of the current real estate market. Jake was very hands on and helpful, he even took his own weed eater and cutback vegetation around the entry area of our property for us. He kept us informed of all offers that were made, but allowed my wife and I to make all of the decisions necessary to reach a closure on our property. Jake is a true real estate professional and I would recommend him to anyone either buying or selling a home or unimproved lot in Ponte Vedra Beach." – Don Rhoads
"I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Jake. His help in the beginning stages of the process was priceless. I’m very busy with my job, and didn’t have time to take care of the work that is required to get my home prepared for the market. Jake took it upon himself to contact a cleaning service to deep clean my house prior to listing. He took excellent photos and made a brilliant property video, which I thought really helped build interest and activity. His education and communication throughout the transaction was wonderful. I was anxious about the whole sales process, but Jake’s market knowledge and his easy-going personality made me comfortable. I thought it was going to be much more of an ordeal, but Jake made sure everything was seamless. He executed his marketing plan to a T, and I received multiple offers on my house within 1 week! I ended up selling it for $4,000 over asking price. I recommend Jake to ANYONE looking to sell or buy a home in the area." – Kristen LaBarbera
"Jake went above and beyond for my family. My wife and I changed our mind on houses a few times, Jake was always understanding and spent a lot of time showing us houses all over Ponte Vedra and Jacksonville. He was the perfect realtor and professional. He even handled aspects of the negotiation and got us way more off the house than I thought we could get. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a house." – John Beach
