While studying Industrial Design at Auburn University, Jake learned the power of human interaction cross sectioning with creativity and design. As an avid guitar player and musician, he also found a passion for expression driven by connection, which blossomed into a musical career that spanned several years. While on the road, Jake’s eye for detail was sharpened as he avidly photographed the beautiful architecture he encountered along the way. Through the musicians and clients he came to know, and the creative disciplines he mastered, he began to understand that creativity creates community. This idea not only motivates him, it enables him to learn the ins-and-outs of every property his clients are interested in, as well as highlighting the importance of the detailed numbers that make commercial property deals succeed. Jake’s detail-driven aesthetic, engineering background, and joy in connecting clients to the homes they love, keep him coming back to the industry he now calls home.
