I look forward to working with you and am dedicated to delivering the personalized service, exceptional communication and professional expertise that will give you successful results in buying or selling your home. I feel that in order to trust me as your agent, you should know my background and experience in real estate.
I have been working with real estate since 2001 when I bought my first condo in Annapolis at the age of 24. Since then, I have continued to buy and renovate properties in Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City, and St Mary's County Maryland. My personal strategy has been to buy, hold, and rent properties for maximum income cash flow as well as means to wealth generation. Additionally, I have also completed whole house renovations and turned around and sold them on the retail market.
During this time, I worked as an independant territory sales manager for several residential building material manufacturers. As such, I worked closely with home improvement contractors and suppliers on daily basis. I provided training on proper installation of various products, as well as handled all marketing aspects withing my two state territory. I illustrate these points to show that I have extensive knowledge on home construction and renovation, as well as the retail and rental markets.
I bring a unique perspective to every home I visit. I am able to see the full potential in any home and understand what renovations would bring the highest return on value. This is helpful to both buyers and sellers and can make a huge difference on what may be your largest investment.
I hope that you will trust me as your real estate expert resource.
"As submitted on Zillow: Highly likely to recommend 04/18/2015 - stevejak Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Queenstown, MD. Local knowledge: 5 star Process expertise: 5 star Responsiveness: 5 star Negotiation skills: 5 star Let me say up front that Ryan is our son, however since we did hire him and paid the full commission, I feel he deserves an honest assessment of our dealings. My wife's father passed away last November. After dealing with all the usual processes, it came time to sell his home. Of course we hired Ryan to evaluate the property and to price it fairly in the market. The result was a price higher than we were expecting but he must have done his homework well as we had four offers in three days, three of which were higher than the asking price. After choosing a buyer he was involved in the give & take of negotiations and closed the deal that both sides were happy with. "

"My wife and I had a great experience working with Ryan. We were out of state and didn't know the area very well, but Ryan helped us find the rental that met our needs. He responded immediately to all of our calls, texts, and emails. He personally went to the properties we were interested in and took additional pictures for us since we weren't able to view the properties ourselves. We're looking forward to working with him in the future. 10/3/2014"

"Ryan is very good real estate agent.He was helping us to rent an apartment.He was very patient and understanding. He followed up all my emails and phone calls,messages every day. I would recommend Ryan to anyone . Thank you Ryan!!!"

"I enjoyed working with Ryan. He set up an automated search for me with listings that fit my criteria and they were emailed to me every few days. However, whatever criteria you send him is the only listings he will send you. For example, if you have pets sometimes they can be negotiated but if pets are part of your home criteria you will only be sent listings that allow pets so you may miss a place. Ryan was very timely with scheduling showings for homes. I would tell him I liked a few homes and within a couple days we were looking at them. I would definitely reccommend Ryan Jakubowski. 12/28/2014"

"10/1/2014 Ryan was great! Even though my fiancé and I thought we knew what we wanted, Ryan suggested some other areas we hadn't thought of. Long story short we loved one of his finds, and wouldn't have known of the place without him. In addition, Ryan was prompt and courteous with appointments, communication, and questions. He has a vast knowledge of the industry through previous experience in construction materials fields prior to becoming a real estate agent, and his information was invaluable through the whole experience. If you're looking for an agent in the area, save yourself the trouble, Ryan's the guy for you. Highly recommended. Response from Ryan on 10/09/2014 Thanks Steve! I am very excited for you and Aimee as your new home is being constructed. It's going to be a fun process to watch, and I think you are really going to love being able to pick out all the different styles and colors to make your home perfect for you. It's been a real pleasure to work with you first la"

"We met Mr. Jakubowski when my boyfriend and I were searching for a place to rent since our first child was due in a short two months. He immediately contacted us with a couple pages of options and when we chose the one we wanted to make our first home he made it possible for us. As first time renters we were a little lost and he was very nice, quick and always responded back in a timely fashion. I would definitely recommend him!"
-Shawna G., Client
"We met Ryan Jakubowski at an open house. Ryan quickly developed an understanding of our preferences and needs and was able to identify a number of properties which met our requirements. He did not overload us with listings as other agents have in the past. After locating the property we desired, he was instrumental in leading us through the process - especially negotiating with the sellers and the sellers agent. Ryan even remained in contact with our lender helping to resolve issues for us in the mortgage approval process. We could not have been happier with the service and assistance we received from Ryan. I would highly recommend him to anyone intending to buy in the communities he serves."
