Super Responsive & Cares
I can’t say enough about working with Jake! He and the Tip of the Spear team are the only ones I would trust if you are a military family. From Jake’s knowledge of the real estate market in Oceanside, to his mortgage lender connections, he made our move across country as easy as possible. Jake is super responsive and cares about his clients first and foremost! I’m so glad we found him!
I just purchased a home with Jake. He was very helpful through the whole process and made it as easy as it could be! He was always easy to reach when I had questions and was proactive in handling things for us during our purchase. I would highly recommend using Jake for your next home purchase, and am sure I will use him again in the future!
Couldn't Be Happier
Right after being referred to Jake, I reached out and we meet up the next day to discuss the personals, ins and outs since being first-time home buyers. Had our share of excitement and letdowns but when I tell you all once we found the house my girl and I loved Jake and his team pounced and had multiple backs and forths with the seller and we actually bought the house we wanted and fell completely in love with it immediately. Thank you Jake, your family, and the Tip Of The Spear team for your relentless effort we couldn’t be happier!!!
Easy And Painless
Jake made the process of buying a home easy and painless! He's the best in the business. We were stationed overseas in London, and Jake went above and beyond to find us our dream home. If you're looking for a reliable, caring, and compassionate realtor, HIRE JAKE! :) Thanks Jake for everything, we appreciate it!
Go with Jake!
I would like to start off with a sincere “Thank You” to Jake Smoke with Tip Of The Spear Real Estate Team (Keller Williams Realty). I cannot say “without him, we would not have been able to buy a house”, but what I can say is…as first-time homebuyers without experience nor much research time…it sure feels like we specifically needed him, and I give him (along with Kyle Melvin and his team at Aligned Mortgage) all the credit. We had a seemingly unique home buying experience in which Jake even learned a few things or had a slightly different experience as a real estate agent for our situation than what he has experienced in the past. Jake is widely versed in many different situations and never backs down from a challenge…he embraces it. In fact, challenging situations are as much rewarding and motivating for him as they are opportunities for him to continue his professional development. Jake is our guy…if (or perhaps when) we buy in the future! We highly valued Jake’s opinions and feedback…I asked him directly what he thinks we should consider as we progressed in each step of our home buying experience…I do not know if this is typically something real estate agents provide to buyers (or sellers alike) with respect to fair market responsibility. I do think an agent has an obligation to understand what the clients’ best interests are, and this includes being able to provide candid feedback to the clients’ questions, comments, and concerns…Jake did this for us, and we really appreciate it. As an example of how Jake truly looks after his clients’ best interests…he does this by understanding their situation, personality, and goals…he will expertly tailor his advise to the clients and he is accurate with his thoughts…I already determined what I believed to be his answer to my question since it was the same answer I came up with myself before he could reply. We purchased a home that we knew would require some work to renovate (being over 30 years old). I asked him what his thoughts were (not as a realtor) regarding our decision to either proceed with the purchase or look for something else…he understood me to be someone willing to put in work (somewhat “handy”) and provided unbiased feedback that the home could be a worthwhile investment for someone that is motivated to put in the work. But, he always made us feel confident and comfortable with making the decisions for ourselves and always reassured us of our options…in other words, he was not trying to convince us to purchase the house just so he could be part of a sale closing. We are happy with our purchase and I have already gotten to work on improvements. While he definitely understands the market, he also draws on his experiences outside of the real estate industry as well. Not only is he an agent, but he is a homeowner, just like all of you reading this review or those that are prospective first-time homebuyers. Go with Jake!

See this Man about a House!
Thanks to Jake Smoke, my husband and I bought our first home in San Diego! Jake helped every step of the way, especially with our crazy schedules and different time zones. He gave us a professional and honest opinion of every home we were interested in and sent him. He provided us with the valuable insight we might not have thought of otherwise. My husband and I are dual military living in separate countries at the moment, and Jake would tirelessly provide us with pictures, videos and work with our time zones to coordinate zoom calls and showings. Thank you again for your help and expertise in helping us find a house. Go see this man about a house!
Made our Dreams Possible!
Jake Smoke helped my wife and I purchase our first home, he's hands down the best experience we’ve encountered on this journey. After trying a couple of years earlier and getting no’s, Jake and his team made our dreams possible. Jake and his team covered all the bases to put our family in the best possible position to make sure our deals went all the way through. Jake made sure to walk us through all the details and provided great support from start to finish. Jake showed us that he believes in working hard for his clients no matter your needs. To say he went above and beyond is an understatement. Working with Jake and Tip of the Spear was one of the best decisions we made for this process. I recommend Jake Smoke and Tip of the Spear real estate team.
Words cannot express Gratitude
Jake. We're not sure where to start. Words can not express our gratitude towards you. For years we worried about purchasing a home because we thought we just couldn't or wouldn't be able to get approved. Jake, you changed that the very minute we reached out to you and you reached out to us right away. You are an amazing person, realtor, and serviceman. We never imagined that it would be this easy. You made this experience of purchasing our 1st. home so smooth. You and your team. Jake. I was diagnosed with renal kidney failure in 2002. I was on dialysis for 11 1/2 years. This past January 23rd is 8yrs with my new kidney. Maurice and I have faced many challenges with my health but we made it through. We made a pack that this year would bring new beginnings and one of them was to purchase our first dream home. Jake, again we want to thank you for this Awesome Amazing opportunity to purchase our home. We can't wait to start new memories. We will definitely be in touch with you referring more home dreamers to you Everyone should experience this awesome experience with you! Thank you for your service. We look forward to your continuous support. We need you, Jake!😁 Maurice and Michelle Blevins ❤
He worked hard, WHILE ON VACA
Thanks to Jake for getting us through finding our perfect home in probably the craziest market that California has ever seen. We truly believe that Jake's professionalism, his knowledge, and the respect he holds in the San Diego market are the reason we were able to get the house we did. After seeing a good dozen houses and not getting a few, the perfect gem popped up for us. He worked hard, WHILE ON VACATION to get us through a bidding war and seal the deal. We don’t think we would have gotten this house with any other realtor. Jake has become a friend and he was truly ecstatic for us when we got the keys. Jakes your guy if you’re looking to get a house that best fits your needs #SmokeEffect
