“I don’t like the conflicts of interest that come from dual agency. I see myself as a service provider, not a salesman; it fits my personality better. I truly enjoy the benefits of being able to focus and be the best at one thing.”
Jon was one of the original founders of The Buyer’s Agent in 1998, and he is just as passionate today about his work – he has been in the top five (sell side) buyers agents in the Asheville market for the past two years. He is a NC Real Estate broker, a Leadership Asheville graduate, and has a BS in Business Administration from Mars Hill College.
A native of Asheville, Jon moved away with his family, returning at age 18. He and his wife Jennifer have a son and a daughter and two family pets, a dog and cat. The family enjoys camping and biking, especially at Bent Creek or Carrier Park. A favorite night out includes dinner at Salsa’s and a live concert at the Orange Peel.
Jon says he wouldn’t live anywhere else. He loves the diversity of the area for running, mountain biking, and seeing live music. He gives back by volunteering with Junior Achievement and mentoring his team.
What Jon’s Clients Say
“We just cant say enough good things about Jon. This was the third time we have used Jon when we purchased homes in Asheville. There really is not enough good things to say about how fast his communication is, and his knowledge of the market. One of the things that has impressed me in each one of our transactions is that Jon thinks of things that you haven’t though of, and points out even what he sees as a potential negative that you haven’t considered, this in my book is an excellent quality in a sales person……complete integrity, and not just someone looking to make a sale. A tremendous asset to have on your side!!”
Jon was great to work with. He is professional, kind, and best of all he knows the area well. He helped us find our dream home. He made himself very available long way and took time to carefully explain each step of the process. I would highly recommend Jon to my friends and family.
My husband Drew and I would highly recommend Jon as a real estate agent. From the moment we met him, he was knowledgeable, responsive and attentive. He was never pushy, and was flexible in working with our timeline and schedules. He responded very quickly to texts and emails, including on weekends and over the holidays. When decided to make an offer on a house, Jon negotiated the best price possible. We went under contract on a house with the intention to refinish the basement and Jon attended countless appointments with contractors. We couldn’t have been happier with Jon, and know we would use him again in the future!
