Jake is the Founder and CEO of The Locker Room. He has been in the real estate industry for 7+ years and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team in order to help agents achieve their business and personal goals. Jake started his real estate career back in 2007 with Lennar Homes in Jacksonville / St. Augustine, FL. After spending 3 years as their Internet New Home Consultant and helping launch that division, he decided to move back home to Illinois to launch his own indoor baseball training business.
During his time running The Players Edge - his indoor baseball training facility - Jake was introduced to the Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge and proceeded to run a top network marketing business that put him in the Top 1% achievers within ViSalus Sciences which was the Worlds #1 Health & Fitness Challenge.
Jake got the "itch" for real estate again and received his Illinois Real Estate license in early 2013 where he joined forces with Keller Williams Realty Greater Quad Cities. After quick success in his real estate business, Jake received recognition from the Operating Principal and was invited to have a discussion about the Team Leader / CEO position of the office. Under heavy consideration, Jake accepted the offer and continued as the Team Leader in the office for 2 years and increased numbers significantly in all aspects of production, profitability and agent growth.
From there, Jake received another leadership opportunity in Cary, NC so he moved his family to North Carolina to further pursue his dreams and passion for helping others. After spending 1 year in the Cary, NC market center he found himself aligned with his true passion which is getting in the trenches, rolling up his sleeves, and helping each individual agent achieve their dreams.
Today he continues to pour his passion, persistence and purpose into those that he serves. Jake is an avid learner and continually seeking ways to develop personally through means of audio books, reading, attending trainings, and masterminding with other high achievers. He is a graduate from the University of North Florida where he played college baseball. Jake got drafted to play professional baseball out of High School in Illinois as well as getting drafted out of college where he accepted to play pro for the Anaheim Angels organization. Jake is married to his wife Carissa and has 2 young daughters, Ava and Adalyn. In his spare time, he loves hanging out with his family, playing with his dogs, and looking for Native American Indian artifacts.
