“ Love where you live.” That’s the mission of Utah Realtor Jake Melton. He has moved 12 times in the last 8 years and has come to appreciate what it means to live somewhere you love. He helps his clients not only find homes they love, but makes sure they are also in love with their neighborhoods and communities.
Along with being a licensed real estate agent, Jake is a public speaker, author, and mental health advocate. In 2018, Jake published Minimalize to Maximize Your Happiness: Cut the Crap, a book about the essence of minimalism and what it means to live a simplified, decluttered life. (You can purchase it here.) He has spoken to thousands on stages around the country and was a leading voice on LinkedIn in 2019.
Jake initially pursued minimalism at a point in his life when he couldn’t find any other options to cope with his mental health struggles. Diagnosed with anxiety, depression, and PTSD, he has also dealt with Tourette Syndrome since he was a little boy. Jake has become a proud voice and representative for the Tourette Association of America and spends as much time as he can supporting Tourette Syndrome and other mental health causes.
He, his wife of 8 years, and their two beautiful children live in Salt Lake City, UT. He loves real estate, design, exploration, traveling, Diet Coke, personal development, basketball, music, bbq, and the beach.
