About Jacob Smith


Golden Valley

Jake went above and beyond to make sure our house was on the market ASAP (we were still traveling!) The buying and selling process with the other parties were not without issue but Jake and his assistant Cindy did so much to make it more palatable. Jake is knowledgeable, efficient, responsive and well connected. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

I relied heavily on Jake and he delivered. He knows the market well. His staff is quick to respond, if there are any questions. He knows many people if inspection repairs need to be done economically. I would not hesitate to hire him again.

Jake took his time to show us South Minneapolis, Edina and St. Louis Park. We were personally referred to him and although we bought a house below his normal clients' price range, he treated us great. He set up a number of showings for us and never pressured us into a house he didn't feel was right. He even talked us out of a few when we were getting desperate to find something. Overall he was great to work with.

Jake is knowledgable, honest, and above all, effective! He sold our very unique house quickly and at a good price, despite a difficult Buyer. We highly recommend Jake to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the Twin Cities metro!

We worked with Jacob for five months searching for our home. During that time he was patient, professional and very knowledgable. We appreciated his ability to provide honest feedback on every house we viewed. He is able to walk into a house that he is showing and pick out everything that needs attention. He never pressured us into making a decision and when we finally purchased our home, he was instrumental in getting us the best price possible. We would and have recommended him to others who are looking to buy or sell a home.

Jacob is a fantastic real estate professional.  As first time home buyers, we were looking for a realtor we could put our trust in, and Jacob was just that.  He quickly helped us identified exactly what we were looking for and where we were willing to be flexible.  His knowledge of the Minneapolis market and particularly the western suburbs was invaluable.  Our dream home came on the market while we were out of town and Jacob was able to get into the house first thing and lock up our offer before we even made it back from our trip.  He knew exactly what we were looking for and helped us purchase the home from out of state. He was so in tune with our needs and extremely responsive.   Jacob continues to be a valuable resource to us and is always willing to help as we navigate the world of home ownership.  We refer Jacob to everyone we can because of our amazing and painless experience with the home buying process.

I definitely recommend Jacob!  As a first time home buyer, Jacob walked me through the entire home buying process so that I was comfortable with each step.  I was also fairly new to Minneapolis and he helped me understand exactly what  I was looking for in a home.  Jacob is incredibly knowledgeable of the real estate market, easy to work with, and very responsive.

Jacob was a pleasure to work with.  He has laid-back, no pressure style but is still very responsive, organized and effective.  I'm convinced we bought our house for the price we did because of his skills.  He is especially good at  SW Minneapolis and Edina.  I highly recommend him.

Jacob came highly recommended from a friend. As first time homebuyers, he was a great asset as we searched through various neighborhoods and homes. Jacob was always responsive to our calls and emails, and did a good job showing us a balance of homes we found on MLS, as well as other homes he found that he felt aligned with our needs. Even after our purchase, Jacob continues to be a helpful resource to us. If you're looking for a real estate professional - go with Jacob!

I worked with Jake on the sale of our parents home, my condo, and the purchase of a new condo.  He knows the market and provides data to support his recommendations.  He communication is very good and  always responds to emails or phone calls.  He is respectful of your time.

- Debbie Anderson


Jacob has always been completely professional in all interactions.  We have purchased two homes with him and sold one home using his expertise, top notch negotiation skills, and timely follow up. . .all of which help to make an otherwise stressful process pain free.  Jacob is also accountable for his clients and takes great pride to ensure the even the smallest detail is not overlooked - if it's important to you, it is important to him.   We would highly recommend Jacob Smith if you are looking for one of the best and brightest in the real estate business.

I have used Jake as my go-to real estate agent for 10+ years and I would highly recommend him.  He is very knowledgeable and lives in the area.  He has always been quick to respond and is very easy to work with.

- Derek Mann


We have sold and purchased multiple homes using Jacob’s real estate expertise. He is a consummate professional and approaches each transaction with the utmost care. No question or concern is too small and he will always take the time to listen and work with you to find a solution. Buying and selling a home is a very personal process and can at times be overwhelming, but Jacob was always there to talk us through it. He is extremely knowledgeable with regard to the communities where he does business and will take the extra time to ensure his clients are educated as well. Jacob is a seasoned real estate professional and comes highly recommended by our family.
