Musician Jake Roland loves the creative side of real estate, and the growth and security that owning real estate can provide for generations. There are so many things that go into purchasing or selling a home, and there is room for creativity in every aspect of the profession, from staging to financing. He loves to watch the growth and transformation taking place in Auburn and Opelika. The revival of communities and renewal in historic areas is a true passion for him. Jake enjoys making deals happen and staying on top of the big picture so that everyone involved can get through the transition smoothly.

Jake grew up out in the country in Auburn, where he learned firsthand that real estate investing and development can make a big difference in the life of a family. As a youngster he watched his uncle develop and construct several properties on the family land, and as he got older he tiled floors, painted, and did what he could to contribute to the family legacy.

In addition to being a REALTOR®, Jake is a professional musician. When he was 19 years old, his band Jule Vera signed their first publishing contract with Sony/ATV. The year after that they signed their first record deal, and now the band is signed with a Sony partnered label. Jake has toured around the United States 5 times and done 14 shows in the U.K. last year. The band will go to Europe in 2018 to support their first full length album, “Waiting On The Sun.”

A lover of learning, Jake is always reading several books at once and has listened to hundreds of hours of podcasts. He loves playing guitar, writing songs, and traveling. Jake and his fiancé, Ansley, are getting married this December and the couple are excited to start their own family here in Auburn.
