Who is Jake Kurtz? I wear many hats – full time Real Estate Advisor with Engel & Völkers, father, husband, volunteer firefighter and motorsports enthusiast. As a Real Estate Advisor, I bring a ton of life lessons and experiences into my career. I was raised by a hard-working blue-collar family. I was surrounded by skilled people working in many different trade professions. I have learned that sometimes you need to get your hands dirty and figure out how to get something to work through your own persistence and perseverance. I have learned that building rapport and trust with clients is so very important. I have been self employed more than half my life. It does not come easy but when you are more dedicated, motivated and hardworking than anyone else your work doesn’t become just another day at the office it turns into a way of life.

My other full-time job is keeping up with my two young and energetic girls and it is absolutely a joy. I am so lucky to be husband to my wife, Andi Jo. She helps me focus on the big picture and keeps me striving to be better. To keep me grounded, I am also a volunteer firefighter in Lino Lakes. I get so much from giving back to the great community I live in. When I do get to some free time, I have a passion for basically anything that has a motor in it. I enjoy racing snowmobiles in the winter to road course racing cars in the summer time. The competition keeps me pushing to exceed in every aspect of life, from my family, faith to work.

I am excited to be a part of the next chapter of your life as your full time Real Estate Advisor. I would love to join you in the, sometimes complicated, process of buying and/or selling your next home.
