Andrew Harshey
Business Development Manager

Andrew is the Business Development Manager on our Nashville & Chattanooga team and the friendly face that potential partners are greeted with. Andrew grew up and went to college in Allentown, PA and as such, is a huge supporter of the Philadelphia Eagles and was part of the mayhem on Broad St. after the Super Bowl win in 2018. He is an avid fan of bonfires, the oxford comma, and any vehicle that goes fast. A self-proclaimed space nerd, Andrew can often be found lost in thought staring up at the stars, sometimes in the middle of the street. He likes to think of himself as a real renaissance man: he was a runner up in a 5th grade art contest, has hiked the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim twice, and built his own deck (with a tiny bit of help).

Jacob West
Team Leader Chattanooga

Jacob has become famous in our office for his random thoughts and timely one liners. On top of that, he's a whiz with the numbers! Jacob learned accounting while he was still in high school working in the family business. He also studied it formally at The University of Alabama. In college, he fell in love... with real estate! After completing his MBA, he decided to combine his passion for real estate and his accounting skills, which led him to gkhouses! Jacob and his wife love to cook exotic dishes. When Jacob's not running the Chattanooga office, you can find him wading a local waterway with his fly rod and his faithful dog Charlie. Hometown: Birmingham, AL
