Jae first started in real estate as a part-time investor of an income generating property many years ago. Then the love for real estate blossomed into a full-time job as a partner in a real estate investment firm where he managed a portfolio of investment properties. This ultimately led to Jae obtaining his real estate managing broker's license in 2010, becoming a Top Producer in sales in 2011. During his tenure, he was responsible for making acquisition decisions on many bank owned (REO) and short sale properties as well as overseeing full renovation projects. He has expert knowledge in obtaining city permits for rehabs and knows the ins-and-outs acquiring distressed properties. In early 2013, Jae joined the Dream Town team to gain the support of a large network of real estate professionals. His experience combined with Dream Town's marketing presence, Jae can provide his clients with excellent tools for success in this real estate market. One of his greatest attributes is his ability to connect with his clients to understand their needs at a deeper level. Jae received a full-tuition Evans Scholarship to the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance. He has also successfully passed all three levels of the rigorous Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Program. In his spare time, Jae enjoys spending time with his family and friends, as well as golfing and aspires to become a scratch player...one day.
