Jake was born and raised just north of Kansas City, Missouri. As a child, Jake would help his grandparents clean and prepare their rental properties for incoming tenants. This planted the seeds of what would grow into a passion for real estate. When Jake was in high school, his family moved to Arlington, where he met his future wife, Rochelle. Both moved to Fort Worth where Rochelle attended TCU while Jake received a Bachelors and Masters degree in Criminology from UTA.

Jake is familiar with hard work and long hours, and his dedication to others is evidenced by his commitment and determination.
Like most parents, Jake’s hobbies include supporting his two children in their pursuits.

You’ll often find him sporting his KC Royals hat with a Diet Coke in hand. Other favorites include vacationing in Nantucket Island and rescuing endangered sea turtles…a must-hear story you’ll have to ask him to share sometime!
