"When we started discussing the possibility of working with Jake as our Broker I was intentionally very picky because of a disappointing experience with our previous Broker. I wanted a trustworthy, proactive, informative partner. I even wrote a list of about 20 "expectations" that I gave to Jake fully expecting him to be put off by it. Instead, Jake took my list and made sure to meet every expectation listed - and exceed them all! Jake is a very hard worker. He was tireless and patient, and made the process of finding and buying a home as pleasant and painless as possible. I highly recommend Jake as a Broker to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

"We're so grateful that we got to work with Jake. We had a tight timeline to find a house -- were working mostly remotely -- and very little knowledge of the Portland area -- plus we were first-time home buyers -- so Jake had his work cut out for him. He did an excellent job helping us manage and narrow down our search, always keeping in mind our priorities and budget. And when we found a house he went the extra mile during a sticky inspection process -- good thing for us he really knows his old houses and neighborhoods. We wouldn't have found our home without him."

"In over 15 years in the industry,I have worked with many real estate agents on countless transactions. We recently closed a VA loan for some clients who worked with Jake Heelan at Atlantic & Pacific, and I was impressed with Jake’s ability to communicate effectively, and to be always available when needed. He was never far from his phone and email, and could be reached immediately. Our mutual clients had started with a contract to purchase a bank-owned home that required extensive repairs. Jake put in countless hours and worked tirelessly to communicate with the bank and the various contractors involved. I would highly recommend Jake as an excellent agent who makes his client’s needs his first and foremost priority."
