President at Mark Management,
I became acquainted with Jake Zachariah when he joined the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) Central Florida Chapter No. 60 in August, 2013 of which I am past president and currently the Association Executive. It is a pleasure to know Jake and work with him as a volunteer in this non-profit educational organization.
Within the first month, Jake became a volunteer giving of his time to our social media committee bringing it to a new level of engagement from our members and friends. No matter what we have asked of him to help out in our chapter, he has always done it willingly and with a smile. That is a rare commodity in the business world.
Although I have not worked directly with Jake in the property management field, I would recommend him to a company that wants an enthusiastic and energetic employee. His skills and knowledge of the apartment industry combined with his technological abilities would add real value to his employer.
