I am excited for the opportunity to serve the community and people of Tipton. I enjoy helping customers with their needs and making a positive impact with this exciting step in their lives.

Jake joined the First Farmers team in 2016. Jake was born in Tipton, IN and lives there today with his wife and two children, Henry & Pippa. He's a Ball State graduate and has worked for DuPont Pioneer and the Tipton Economic Development Organization.

Jake is passionate about his family, his community, and his career. He enjoys helping people as they move into a new home. Jake's top goal is to make the home buying process as seamless as possible. Here's what Abigail had to say about her experience with Jake and First Farmers

"As a first time home buyer, I did not know what to expect. In the very beginning of the loan process, I was called away to rural Hawaii for a six-week business trip. Jake was more than helpful and understanding of the whole situation. Jake emailed all the paperwork and explained what needed to be signed clearly and understood that it might have taken a day or two to get it back to him. When there was a little hiccup, Jake understood that being five hours behind and 5,000 miles away made it difficult for me to smooth the issue over. He took charge and cleared up the issue promptly. From start to finish, Jake was in constant communication with me. There was no question on where I stood in the loan approval process."

"I highly recommend Jake for anyone wishing to pursue a mortgage in the future. "
