We are Jake and Hilary. We bought our first home in February 2016 – and had no idea what we getting ourselves into. Thankfully, we have a support system that helped us every step of the way. From house hunting to closing the deal, someone was always there with a piece of advice that calmed our minds. We are here to do the same for you if you don’t have the support, or at least offer another perspective.
Jake is a high school teacher just outside our hometown. He coaches track and field, mows Grandma’s lawn, paints for his dad’s company, and woodworks. Things he likes: Drumming. Food. Beer. Beagles.
I work in marketing by day (and sometimes night and weekends – guilty of a working at home schedule). I cook vegetarian food, paint wood signs, and help my mom out with her candle business. On Tuesdays, I rehearse with our local orchestra. Things I like: Classical music. Food. The color gold. Beagles. Cats.
We’re here to share all projects with you – the good, the bad, and the ugly.
