As a seasoned Associate Broker, Jake Kilgrow has been cultivating the mountain experience since early childhood and practicing real estate in destination resort communities since 1997. An avid outdoor enthusiast and skier, Jake's love of mountains has realized over ten years of experience as a helicopter ski guide in the Chugach mountains of Alaska alongside a successful career as trusted and tested real estate professional.
After growing up in Idaho and living in California and Utah, Jake moved to Telluride in 1999 to work for a Sotheby's affiliate with persistent prompting by a friend and colleague. While there Jake met his wife Jennifer and expanded his knowledge of resort property sales. In 2003, Jake and Jennifer moved to Jackson Hole to realize Jennifer's professional goals and employment with the Teton County School District and the State of Wyoming. Jake and Jennifer live in Wilson with their children Charles and Charlotte and their labradoodle Cash.
With the Kilgrow's move to Wyoming, Jake became a founding member of Teton Village Realty, which was later acquired by Jackson Hole's Sotheby's. Jake has consistently been a leading performer in the Jackson Hole real estate brokerage community. He and his teammates, now Realty Group of Jackson Hole (all original members of Teton Village Realty), have collectively sold over $200 million dollars in gross real estate sales; ranging in scale from his specialty of ski-in/ski-out homes in Teton Village, to building sites, condominiums, condominium hotels, affordable homes, and commercial opportunities.
When working with buyers, Jake provides his customers with the highest level of service and supplies them with a wealth of knowledge gained with experience in and outside of the workplace. An enthusiasm for skiing, snowboarding, and mountain biking combined with his support of Jackson's Adaptive Ski Program keeps Jake actively engaged in the Jackson's community. This involvement adds to Jake's most salient quality in his ability to apply his intimate knowledge of the community and identify client needs to find the best property suited for their criteria.
A dedication to detail and long-lasting client relationships adds to Jake's reputation within the Jackson Hole area as a well-informed agent with efficient work and successful closings. Over the span of his career, Jakes realized a proven track record developing successful sales skills tested in varied market climates. He's ridden the boom to bust of dot.com era through the real estate mortgage meltdown of recent years. Collectively, his experience makes Jake the right 'guide' for navigating destination resort real estate in Jackson Hole.
