Who am I

I’m Jake.

I’m a Real Estate enthusiast living in Hamilton, Ontario. I love creating awesome homes for people to live in, developing simple and clean designs, and bringing great neighbours into the local community. Supporting local business is also an absolute passion of mine (particularly those that serve coffee, or make me sweat!). I’m just getting started, and I’ve created this blog to share what I’m learning about real estate, and life. Most importantly, I want to connect with people just like you!

I bought my first property in 2017, and I now hold 5 doors across 2 properties with another Triplex under contract – all in Hamilton, ON. I have my MBA from the Schulich School of Business focusing on Real Property, and I’m currently completing my Real Estate License (April 2020).

Born in Toronto and having gone to university there, I’ve lived in a new apartment every year for the last 10 (just about). I’ve been all over that city including Little Italy, Riverdale, Cabbagetown and The Annex. Like most, home ownership (and cottage, ranch, and chalet…) was a long term dream of mine. As a kid, I used flip to the back of the newspaper to casually explore listings before going to build a fort in my room! Alas, Toronto was out of reach financially and I was looking for a change of pace so Hamilton stepped up and has now adopted me. I’m absolutely stoked on the direction this city is headed!

I’m a firm believer that every one of our actions has an impact on our immediate and broader community – the collective experience. This writing (I hope) is a small positive contribution to that experience.
