Tell us about your background. Where did you grow up, where did you go to school?
Jake Lamb: I grew up in the Kansas City area and attended the University of Missouri. I moved to Chicago after school and have lived here for about three years now.
How did you get your start in the industry?
Lamb: Prior to Northmarq, I worked for a multifamily and industrial developer based in Kansas City. While I enjoyed the development side, I saw my future on the brokerage side and jumped at an opportunity at Northmarq presented to me by Dom Martinez, a close family friend and now colleague.
Did you have a mentor who helped you get on your feet, or is there someone you turn to now for support?
Lamb: My colleague and mentor, Alex Malzone, has been instrumental in my development as an Investment Sales producer. I lean on him daily for advice and will continue to do so in the future.
