Jake did such an awesome job for us in helping us to find our home. We have been working with him for over 2 1/2 years to find our retirement home in Mooresville/Lake Norman. He has great knowledge and expertise. He helped us navigate and explain the home buying process in North Carolina. He also gave us great advise as we were making our move from California. After we purchased our home, and he knew we would be doing some remodeling he provided us with solid referrals that we could use. We love our home and we really want to thank Jake!!

I am honored to present this letter of recommendation on behalf of Jake Reed as I express my utmost satisfaction for the exceptional services he provided leading up to and including my real estate purchase.

In my case, this involved purchasing a lot of land. At this time, we are working on designing my dream home. I wouldn’t consider anyone but Jake to assist me in this process.

Jake’s level of expertise and work ethic far exceeded my highest level of expectations. He is an outstanding real estate professional who consistently goes the extra mile to deliver exceptional results.

While dealing with Jake, it became immediately apparent that he possesses a deep understanding of every aspect of the real estate market, including the local one. In addition, his impressive grasp of current economic conditions undoubtedly facilitated my real estate purchase. You’ll be hard pressed to find someone with his work ethic and genuine commitment to his clients.

Jake was always very patient, taking the time to carefully listen to my preferences and budget as the buyer, even explaining aspects of the real estate market that were unfamiliar to me.

Aside from his professional expertise, Jake is an absolute pleasure to work with. One quickly perceives his trustworthiness and calm demeanor as genuine and never contrived. I never hesitated discussing my concerns openly and candidly with him.

I wholeheartedly and unequivocally recommend Jake Reed to anyone seeking a skilled and trustworthy real estate agent. I would like to also take this time to thank him personally for his services.

One Satisfied Customer

I recently finalized my land/custom home purchase that was facilitated through NextHome. My personal contact was Jake Reed and I know that I could not have completed this transaction without his help.

I have been working with Jake and Kelly for several years in an attempt to find a piece of land on which to build. I might mention that I live on the West coast and am building on the East coast; so it isn't like I could run around and check every listing myself. Jake would check out anything I brought to his attention and let me know when he saw something I might be interested in. He was invaluable in giving me his honest opinion on whether a property was overpriced, not in the right area, too steep, etc. We communicated often by email, text, and phone and he always returned my calls, no matter how busy he was. I highly recommend him whether you are buying or selling. He is honest, dedicated and dependable. View More Info at

Mental Health Therapist

Jake is absolutely incredible! I appreciate so many things about him. One of Jake’s excellent qualities is listening. We needed a property that would accommodate an elderly family member which is an extremely specific request. Our house sold in 16 hours before it was on the market! We trusted the recommendations that Jake made at every turn. I particularly appreciate Jake’s honesty and knowledge which is something that we value in the current real estate market. Jake isn’t over bearing and his approach is unlike that of a salesperson that only cares about the sale. Jake cares about his clients and anyone who chooses him will feel that immediately. Jake convinced us to take a look at a property that I was initially nervous about but when looking at it onsite and the possibilities, it was absolutely perfect and precisely what we needed. We are now proud homeowners of a beautiful country property, thanks to Jake! We still have another property that we need to sell and we intend to use Jake again. We like to think of Jake as our family realtor because anytime we need a realtor we are going to call on him. This was the best experience we have ever had with a realtor. Don’t delay! What are you waiting for? Give Jake a call! View More Info at

Jake was wonderful throughout our entire home purchasing process. He took us to 15+ homes on our hunt weekend and presented 2 offers.

He provided excellent guidance on details specific to NC real estate. He was present at the walk through and settlement. He also provided great referrals for various vendors needed post sale.

There can be many obstacles in the home buying process; beginning from the thought of needing a bigger home, to knowing your current home doesn't check all the boxes anymore, or might be that relocation is inevitable. Perhaps selling that same home, to looking for the next place you'll be spending the next 25 years or more of your life may be your situation. Many unseen waves of uncertainty can occur in this tumultuous time. During this period of liberating encounter, it's it imperative to have guidance in navigation; a steady hand. Jake is a sturdy ship of experience and a proven associate of readiness of these situations - when both buyers and sellers are happy is when he feels he succeeds . I would endorse Jake only because I would use him again. View More Info at

Jenelle Mattingly recommends Jake Reed

The best in the business! I have worked with well over 15 agents on various transactions and I can say with complete honesty, Jake is by far the best. Jake has gone above and beyond to negotiate the best price, as well as ensuring that the transaction went smoothly from across the country! We are in California and unable to be at Lake Norman for much of the buying process. Jake has kept us informed at every juncture, and gone the extra mile in personally handling much of what would normally be handled by the buyers. This includes working with inspectors, contractors, and the city, just to name a few. We wanted to make a last minute offer on a house, sight unseen, and Jake came to the rescue at 10:00pm to write up a last minute offer, then went to the house first thing the next morning to give us a Facetime tour and offer his honest opinion of the home. I know of no other agent that would have done half of what Jake generously offered to take care of for us. After speaking to numerous agents at Lake Norman, it was an easy decision to use Jake. Do the same and I promise you will be pleased you did! View More Info at

Jake did not rush us or judge any of our decisions. He did his job as expected and was very courteous and responsive ... until the contract was signed, and then we were turned over to a third party to deal with the aspects of closing (I am a little unfamiliar with this process, but it seems efficient enough). The "closing assistant" was also very helpful and timely (so much so that we were able to close early). View More Info at
