About Jon

I’ve been involved in sales all my life with most of it being in the clothing industry. I worked in downtown San Francisco for many years and lived in Fairfax, Marin County. I moved to Folsom in 2000 to care for my mother who had lived there many years. After she passed away I discovered Lake of the Pines which is between Auburn and Grass Valley on highway 49 in the Sierra Foothills. After working with Coldwell Banker, Lyon and Connect I found Green Key. Their values are closer to mine and I look forward to staying with them till the end of my Real Estate career.

I specialize in the Auburn to Grass Valley area with my specialty being Lake of the Pines. I’ve sold many homes on the lake and to be honest most of my best friends are people I’ve sold homes to. I bowl, golf, boat and play tennis and basketball with them and their friends which has been my way of getting to know people here.

Since I knew nobody in the Sacramento area I signed up with House Hunt. I’d estimate that 90% of my sales come from the site which I pay for but have exclusive rights to Auburn and Lake of the Pines. I had tried many others but found this one far and away the best.

I’m very computer oriented and do my business via emails, phone calls and listing searches that meet my buyers criteria. In addition I work with the same lender Jill Hinkey at imortgage, transaction coordinator Kricia Ames, Title officer Tracey Willis at Placer Title and now I’ve added Jennifer Winter to help with keeping the buyers on track. My 3 selling criteria for my buyers are location, quality and appreciation in value. By keeping to that criteria I sell them homes that I can sell again easily if they decide to move.
