About me

My entire life, I have lived with the goal of serving others. Whether it was growing up as the captain of my hockey team, or arranging a toy drive for the children’s home, I have always had an innate desire to do my best to improve the lives of the people around me. As I’ve matured, that same desire has translated into my professional career. As a Realtor, it is my belief that your quality of life when buying or selling a home is in direct proportion to the quality of service I provide you, and to serve you to the best of my ability day in and day out is my purpose. I believe in developing meaningful and long-lasting relationships with my clients that goes beyond the sale of property. As in all real estate dealings, there are a few key elements that I believe determine the success of the transaction; effective communication, hard work, knowledge, and commitment. Throughout my career, I’ve had success by bringing together a unique blend of knowledge and... More

Personal Interests

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. Growing up I played hockey, soccer, and baseball, and my passion for sports has stuck with me even to this day, though I play more golf than anything. I'm an avid Yankees fan and do my best to see as many games as possible. I also love to take in the beautiful scenery the Hudson Valley has to offer by going for a hike or bike ride. Besides that, I spend my down time reading or relaxing, if you have any good book recommendations, I'd love to hear them! 


Professional Courtesy

I want to thank you for all the professional courtesy you extended to me in the scheduling of the showings and all of the other helpful things you did for me. You made the sale of our condo smooth and it's appreciated. I would definitely recommend you to my family and friends.

Highly Recommend

I have worked with Jake on a number of real estate transactions. As a Home Builder & Landlord, Jake has helped me to buy land & investment properties, as well as sell new construction homes, single family homes, and fill rental vacancies. In addition to this, Jake has also helped me in my own personal real estate dealings. What impresses me most about Jake is his hard work and dedication. He is not afraid to work long hours, is available at all times of the day, and always communicates in a timely and effective manor. His knowledge & creativity of real estate & the market has helped me tremendously. He genuinely cares about his clients & always acts with their best interest in mind. If you are thinking about buying or selling, I highly recommend giving Jake a call and getting to know him.

First Time Home Buyer

Jake was a young professional who helped me, a first time home buyer, through every rigorous and tedious task of buying a home. He was responsive, and detailed in his approach and whatever questions I had were answered within 24 hours. I would strongly recommend using Jake and I will be using him again in the future.

Responsive & Effective

Jake did a great job of helping us fill an unexpected vacancy. He was responsive and effective, gave very good guidance in terms of what the market would bear, and proposed the right solutions as the situation evolved. All in all, a great experience, and the tenant is in before the end of the month -- no time wasted or revenue lost. Update: Recently three tenants gave notice at about the same time, and Jake masterfully juggled applicants, credit reports, different movein/moveout dates, and financial considerations, offering excellent advice and service throughout. He made the situation much less problematic than it might have been, and we're glad he was there to keep the ship on course. We ended up losing almost no rented days."

Hard Working

Jake is a hard working and has great integrity! He will be up front and honest as that is what he prides himself as being. He is very knowledgable and if he does not have the answers he will get them as quickly as he can. Jake has been great for helping me in the deals he has helped me close! If you choose Jake to help or represent you I can assure he won't let you down!!
