Jake Parker has been representing landlords and office/industrial tenants at SK Commercial Realty for over two years. During that time, Jake has expanded his scope of responsibility to include property management, supervising approximately 250,000 square feet of office and retail space in the Woodstock/Cherokee County market.
This is not his first time working in the realm of property management: Prior to joining SK Commercial Realty, Jake worked as an assistant property manager at Fowler Properties, where he assisted in the successful executions of leasing contracts, and ensured client and tenant obligations were being met. It was in this role that Jake learned to value the prioritization of his clients as well as best practices to aid in achieving their goals. He takes those skills, along with a strong work ethic and an exceptional knowledge of the Atlanta real estate market, into every endeavor he makes.
Other skills were honed at Penn State University, where he received his associate degree in Turfgrass Science and Management, and at Georgia College and State University, where he received his bachelor’s degree in Political Science. His early career in the turfgrass industry included working as a turf graduate for the Augusta National Golf Club and as assistant superintendent for Sea Island Resort. It was there he realized his avocation in working with others in a collaborative, transactional setting.
Jake is now a member of the Atlanta Board of Commercial Realtors after receiving his license in 2020, and he continues to strive for excellence in every relationship and enterprise. He enjoys volunteering, spending time with friends and family, and learning new things in all areas of his life. He lives with his wife Jordan and their two children in Acworth, Georgia.
