"Real estate is a huge part of our lives because we all have to live somewhere. Everyone can use some professional help with this important decision, and major investment."
Jake is your trusted advisor who can streamline the purchase with full-service expertise. He takes time to research the ideal homes for each buyer's needs, and even recommends attorneys, mortgage lenders and others to cover every step. Sellers benefit from his accurate pricing and thorough marketing that make their properties poised to move. His experience overseeing architectural alterations in historic Manhattan cooperatives is also invaluable to both sides.
A lifelong New Yorker born on the Upper West Side, Jake has extensive knowledge of the neighborhoods of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. He has lived in North Brooklyn since 2002 and watched it change and grow; yet he still appreciates the charming nuances that have helped Greenpoint, Williamsburg and Bushwick remain the same. Whether working with someone renting their first apartment, a young couple looking to buy, an investor seeking the next best deal or a seller who's ready to move on, Jake is your resource.
He is known for being honest, straightforward and factual when describing the NYC market, as he believes informed decisions are best made through transparency. "It's not just about buying and selling, but about being a part of the greatest city in the world, one that demands a lot of us. Let me help you meet the demands and reap the rewards!"
Before real estate, Jake was a successful touring musician who interacted with people from all over the world, all coming together to create something they were passionate about. Though buyers and sellers have different styles and goals, they would each agree that a real estate transaction is of major importance, and must be treated with the same reverence and professionalism as a big-budget recording or concert. In addition to being a musician, Jake worked in film production and development and as an event manager at a concert venue. On a personal note, he is an avid collector of records and vintage guitars.
