We asked Jacob, “what made you choose to work for Atlas?”…
“Hearing Mike’s REIH presentation and attempting to poke holes in the Atlas investment thesis. Mike’s answers were compelling and showed that he knew exactly what he was talking about. I didn’t apply to Atlas for a while, but I remember that event standing out and Atlas became a place I envisioned working at someday”.

He believes in Atlas as a place full of knowledgeable and experienced brokers that have access to the most sophisticated thinking about real estate due to strong relationships with Atlas’ founders, Zillow, and other SFR institutions.
Jacob was such a pleasure to work with, and we felt that we were in great hands throughout our entire process. He was quick to respond to any questions we had, and I would highly recommend him!
Jacob is was very helpful during my time with him in understanding what I had to do and tried his best to help me close on my house, knowing I might have financial issues doing so. Everything worked out in the end. I would highly recommend Jacob to anyone who’s feeling nervous about selling their home.
Jacob was amazing at getting our house sold. He walked me through the process thoroughly and was always available to answer any questions that I had along the way.
