Agent Jake Tibstra


Originally from Chicago, Jake brings 18 years of sales and marketing experience and a commitment to work hard, listen, and follow-through. He provides quality service to build relationships with clients and more importantly, maintain those relationships by communicating effectively. Real estate has always been a passion of his and he believes it is an honor to be a part of someone’s life during one of their largest and most exciting purchases or sales. Jake brings the perfect combination of Northern tenacity and Southern charm. He likes to win (for his clients) but does so with a calm demeanor and smile. Clients choose to work with Jake for his full service, work ethic, and drive. Jake simply wants you to enjoy the real estate process and have you win in the end. He consistently tells his clients that he wants them to be empowered by him educating them so that THEY become the market experts. This approach never fails as the client drives the ship and he guides them along the way. Jake's laid-back approach of educating his clients regularly results in them sending their friends and family to him because his previous clients know he will put them first.

Jake and his family reside in the beautiful mountain retreat of Connestee Falls. Equipped with miles of hiking trails, four lakes for swimming and fishing, a golf course, community swimming pool, and clubhouse. When he is not assisting his clients, he can be found somewhere in Connestee enjoying all this amazing area has to offer. His three children love fishing for trout, swimming in the lakes, or hiking near one of our gorgeous waterfalls.

Jake is a conscientious Agent who exudes credibility, commitment, and determination. His passion for real estate is apparent though his excellent determination and compassion to help others. He prides himself on being reachable 24/7 and would be honored to walk you through your buying or selling experience. Email, call or text Jake today for the results you deserve.


"Jake really went the extra mile for very little compensation. We purchased a lot rather than a home so this was not a big-money deal for him. Nevertheless, he helped us with referrals for an attorney, a survey, and local contractors. He also responded promptly to email, text, and phone calls. We would definitely use him again and highly recommend him to others."
