Jacob R. Thomas, is the REALTOR you want on your side. As a licensed Attorney, he is uniquely qualified to help you manage all of your real estate needs. Contact Jake at (208) 200-9999, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.idahohomesandproperties.com
Unlike many Idaho agents, whose qualifications for representing you in a real estate transaction are limited to graduating high school and taking a two week real estate course (and are not a felon...) Jake, has committed to a process of continuous improvement in his education. Not only did he graduate from the UofI College of Law with Honors, but he also has an MBA from ISU. Likewise, his vast non-academic experience in Real Estate stretches across almost two decades. Jake has personally bought and/or sold dozens of his own investment properties, and still continues to invest in our local market. He has owned a property management company, developed land, and was even hired by other real estate brokerages to train their agents.
When it comes to real estate representation, Jake charges no more than most other local agents. For buyers, chances are you won't pay a dime (sellers usually pay the agent commissions in Idaho.) Jake even often includes a lot of free legal work (incidental to the transaction) within his normal buyer/seller representation (exact amount of legal hours allotted to be negotiated up front). However, the real value of having an Attorney as your Real Estate Agent is that his legal expertise helps you avoid legal trouble. Sadly, Jake often sees the effects of the legal predicaments that lesser qualified agents get their clients into. Instead, Jake knows the law, and works to keep your interests safe.
As an experienced negotiator, Jake is often successful in designing deals that far exceed his client's expectations. His clients even include other Attorneys who recognize what a value his services are.
Jake is a "one stop shop" when it comes to your real estate needs. He represents buyers and sellers in all manner of real estate related transactions. Any where in Idaho, whether dealing with residential, commercial, development, recreational properties, or the purchase or sale of a business, Jake is the one to call.

Jacob is great to work with. He really went out of his way to help us find our first home. He always took the time to answer our questions and make sure that our expectations were met. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and hardworking. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.– Brett McKinnon
One of the best things about working with Jacob is his ability to think outside the box. He is willing to put forth any effort to ensure that his clients are happy with their real estate decisions, that they are informed of all possible options, and that the best deal is made. The snags that often come with buying a home were felt minimally on our end as Jacob took care of them without adding the stress to our lives. His experience in law, real estate, and finance made the whole process seamless.– Elizabeth Zufelt
Theres one phrase that comes to mind when I think of Jake.. Deep Integrity. Throughout the entire process each time I worked with him I knew he genuinely had my best interests at heart. Real honesty is a rare thing these days and it’s the main reason I have him on speed dial. We first met him through a family member and he helped us sell our house. It was tough at times and he was always there to help us. Never had an issue getting ahold of him. What can I say… Any time I need an attorney or a realtor, I refuse to call anyone else. He knows what he is doing and he won’t steer you wrong. We’ve dealt with other realtors and other attorneys, but with Jake, you can tell that he genuinely cares. He treats you like a good friend. A friend that cares more about you than he does his own bottom line. Jake walked us through the home loan process, helped us get our old house ready for sale, and was always there when we needed him. He got us more than our asking price for our old home and worked hard to get us a great deal our new one. We came out smelling like roses and we tell the story all the time. There were many times where him being an attorney help us in our home sell/purchase process. It’s a real advantage! I’ve been trying really hard to get Jake to be my family court attorney even though it is not his area of expertise because I know that even with less experience he will do a better job because he actually tries. In realty or law, you have to force me to choose anyone else. If you get ahold of Jake, ask him for my number. I’d be more than happy to talk to you about him. As much as he has helped us, do yourself a favor and go with Jake. You won’t regret it!– Kris Bloom
