About Vuk Jakovljevic

Vuk was born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia, and moved to Chicago in 2008 with his family. He began his postsecondary education with a year at Dominican University and went on to attend Illinois State University, where he majored in finance.

Vuk discovered his passion for real estate after working with his uncle, Mark Jak, a broker at @Properties, in 2017. He immediately decided to ditch the corporate finance life for one in the real estate industry.

When he is not helping his clients find their dream homes, Vuk enjoys traveling–most recently to Croatia, Thailand, Greece, and Costa Rica–and playing basketball in a league on Sundays.

First Chicago Apartment

It was a 4 bedroom/2 bathroom on W Sheridan Rd, living fresh out of college with three roommates.

Favorite Thing About Chicago
