Prior to real estate sales Jake worked as VP of Operations for Government Funding, a private firm that made SBA loans. The company was sold and a year later in 1984 Jake decided the long commute to Beverly Hills was way too stressful. She explored other career opportunities and soon realized she would be happiest if she could be more of an independent contractor so she made a career change into Real Estate. 

From 1984 to 1999 Jake enjoyed both a successful sales career and management positions in the industry. She was Training Director for Fred Sands Real Estate and then Sales Manager for MacGregor Realty. During that period Jake volunteered for numerous committees at the Pasadena Foothills Association of Realtors and in 1994 became the President of the Association. She was also very involved in the community of Altadena.

In 1999 Jake obtained her broker’s license, left MacGregor Realty and opened Altadena Realty. For the next 17 years Jake enjoyed the freedom of owning her own business. She and her husband, “Mr. T” bought an RV and every year they spent 2-4 months on the road with their four dogs;  zigzagging across the US visiting friends and relatives.

In 2016 Jake joined C-21 Golden (now Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Golden Properties) and formed Altadena Realty Group where she now enjoys her new partnership with Doug Colliflower.
