With a decade of professional real estate experience under his belt and a passion for architecture, city culture and helping others, Jake Tasharski tactfully navigates even the most complex transactions. As a broker and team leader at Compass, Tasharski acts as a buyer’s agent, listing agent and luxury rental agent, serving clients throughout Chicago’s downtown, North Side and West Town areas.
Beginning his career leasing luxury rentals downtown, Tasharski gained his footing in the industry by renting out hundreds of apartments, thus setting the foundation for future sales. “Helping renters become first-time buyers proved to be a great opportunity to grow my business from within,” explains Tasharski. He adds that he’s worked on over 1,000 transactions and shares his extensive knowledge with his team to help them grow their businesses.
Prior to entering the real estate industry, Tasharski was a mentor and trainer at Apple Inc., facilitating the opening of new stores across the country by teaching staff how to interface with customers and find solutions that would improve the customers’ lives. “These relationship-building skills and service mindset echo the way we all deserve to be treated,” he remarks, “and I continue to use several of these techniques to help guide our clients with compassion, patience and clear communication.”
Tasharski has received multiple accolades from the industry. In 2018, he started his streak as a CAR top producer, and from 2019 to 2021, he ranked among Expertise.com’s 20 best real estate agents and earned Five Star Real Estate Agent recognition. “2020 was our strongest year on record,” he says. “We all work closely together to offer support while holding each other accountable to our mission and guiding values. I really could not ask for a better team.”
