Jake is a cool guy. I enjoyed dealing with him. He’s a pleasure to work with, honest and fair. I would definitely work with him again!
Working with Jake has been great. I’ve worked with him on multiple acquisitions and felt confident in his problem solving, communication, and overall level of expertise when it comes to buying and selling homes.
I have seen the work of Skye Homes and it’s one of the best works I’ve seen. Being in the real estate industry for almost a decade, I can recognize immediately if a home that has been flipped was done with quality or not. Jake is methodical and asks the right questions when seeking the right house to flip. He doesn’t just take on any project, he’s meticulous with the numbers and makes sure it’s the right fit before diving right into it. I can see him doing bigger deals in the future. He’s got the passion to succeed in this endeavor.
I met Jake at an Open House a few months ago. I came to Jake with an off market property that needed some work one evening about 11:30pm and he returned my call within 10 minutes. We had a conversation about the property where I provided details that were important to him. Within a few days he called me with an offer which the owner accepted. As a result, it was one of the smoothest and fastest escrows I’ve been a part of. He was very responsive throughout the entire process and was a complete pleasure to work with. Without a doubt, if the opportunity presented itself again to do business with him, I will gladly take it.
I highly recommend working with Jake Knight of Skye Homes in the real estate business. My wife and I have done business with him for over two years involving more than one transaction as a private money lender for him. He is a pleasure to work with. Jake is a hard-working, self-directed, and forward-thinking real estate investor.
Jake demonstrates superior real estate knowledge, procedures and processes. He takes the time to fully understand the scope the project, and the time to communicate and update details of each phase to the everyone involved. I especially appreciate the fact that he is always available to contact about the current project, and I value his opinion when I consult him with other real estate questions that I may have.
When we decided to move from the Bay Area back home to Oregon after retiring, we were very concerned about how we would manage to transition from one home (where we had lived for 20 years) to the next. We met with a very reputable local realtor, and it was clear that if we had him sell the house we would really need to vacate it for at least 2 to 3 months, if not longer, while continuing to pay our mortgage, invest in some upgrades to the house, AND find somewhere to live in the interim. Not ideal, to say the least, from our perspective. We decided to explore other options, and found that there are people eager to buy houses for cash, invest in renovating them, and sell them for a profit. These are not the “flippers” of the housing mortgage crisis of 10 years ago, who were trying to make a fast buck on others’ misfortunes. They are legitimate business people making important investments in our communities. And, in our case, making it much easier to manage our move.
Jake Knight of Skye Homes was the quickest to respond when we started reaching out to some local home buyers. He was very good about explaining the whole process without making us feel pressured at all. He quickly made us a fair offer for our house, and after just a little bit of negotiating we accepted it. The deal we made with Jake allowed us to stay in our house for about 3 months after the sale was completed (remarkably quickly) and use the cash we got from it to find and buy a new home. We were not only able to move directly from our old home to our new one, we didn’t even have to clean out the old place! Jake took care of that as a first step in the renovation. We could not possibly overstate how pleased we were with the whole process. Quite simply, it took care of all the problems we anticipated in making the move.
Throughout this process Jake was very helpful and responsive. It became apparent that Jake is not only a person of very high integrity when it comes to a business transaction. He sincerely cares about the people he works with. He wanted this deal to work for us as well as him, and was extremely considerate. After our move Jake found some important papers in our old house that we had carelessly left behind, recognized their significance, and sent them to us. It would be easy for me to say that he didn’t have to do that – but, I know he would disagree. Jake and Skye Homes get our highest recommendation!
Well Jake, what can I say, it’s been a real pleasure working with someone like you. This business endeavor we entered into together, could not have come to fruition, without your dedication, creativity, discipline, organization and hard work. I’ve worked with a lot of housing investors over the years, goals differing, but you and your meticulous planning, were matchless. We came together, with the same purpose and/or objectivity. To find an investment, that would give you the profit margin you were looking for. An investment that would minimize your liabilities and maximize your benefits. We did just that. Working with you, has shown me, that you are very skilled at what you do. A proven professional, that made my job of representing you, so much easier. Your dedication, enthusiasm,and incomparable insight, were truly inspiring. Your work speaks volumes of the kind of man your are; efficient, organized and result oriented. Without your dedication and/or hard work, this business endeavor would not have been possible. I know this project was our first, but I’m hoping it won’t be our last. My appreciation for you, is much greater than these words. May the success that has come your way today, lead you to bigger achievements in the years to come. I wish you nothing but the very best, because you have earned it.
I had a wonderful experience working with Jake and his team. I was particularly impressed with Jake’s professionalism and I highly recommend Sky Homes to all those inquiring.
Jake has been a personal client of mine for over 8 months and in that time I have had a chance to get know who he is personally. And I’d like to convey to those wishing to do business with him that I appreciate his work ethic and his 100% all out caring for his family. I know that is the reason he is successful and will continue to be successful. When you come across someone that knows their “why” it’s special.
Keep rocking Jake!
Very friendly yet business like. Provided detailed prompt information I was still in exploring my options. He was not overbearing I highly recommend him a pleasant experience If I decide to sell he would be the one I would call.
I met Jake Knight at one of my open houses in San Jose a few years ago. The words that come to mind to describe Jake are friendly, professional, hardworking and trustworthy.
Jake’s greatest asset is his knowledge of the local market and his ability to clearly explain the complexities of his reasoning on variables such as timing, pricing and sale negotiation of off market deals.
I look forward to working again with Jake in the future and he is on the top of my list for RE Investors.
I’m a Realtor – I found a house where the sellers needed to get out, quick. I brought the deal to Jake at Skye Homes, and he was able to pay the seller a fair price and save them from a hardship. Once the house was his, he cleaned it out and fixed it up (it needed a lot of love!) using a licensed contractor and with building permits. too. Throughout the process he was friendly, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. I’d be delighted to business with him again in the future.
