Jon-Ryan

Let’s be honest, writing about yourself is strange. 

 

My business is focused on accomphlishing your real estate goals, it is very straight forward. Fundamental to my business is being authentic, professional, utmost integrity, putting my clients first, really having a concern for my clients and just being good at my job. I would be honored to assist you and show this is how I do business.


BACKGROUND

Since 1989, I have lived in Santa Barbara and had the privilege of graduating from Westmont College in 2000. Prior to my real estate career, I had the opportunity to round my skills with positions in business banking (SBB&T), outside sales (Axia Merchant Services), international sales (Integrated Procurement Technologies), and finance & operations management (Reality). Having a broad business base and an in-depth knowledge of the Santa Barbara area, has greatly assisted my career in real estate.  

 

My career as a realtor started on a different foot. Late in 2009, I had the opportunity to join and launch a new investment group and brokerage, Bohlinger Properties. We focused on buying foreclosures and reselling those properties. Since inception, I evaluated hundreds of deals and played a large role in acquisitions. As one of the project managers, I oversaw the rehabilitation, the design of many of the projects, and upon completion listed and sold these properties.


As the market rebounded and the distressed real estate thankfully decreased significantly, I turned my sole focus to serving my clients as a realtor, which has been a great fit. Beginning real estate the way I did, gave me a great eye for potential.


I am thankful to have beautiful wife with a great heart, Christy, who I met while we were attending Westmont College. We have the most beautiful twins; I love how God put our family together and I love being a dad. Outside of that I love to run and being outside.


And yes, two first names can be a little confusing. My dad’s name is Jon and my parents liked the two names together, so it just stuck. I have had to explain it all my life.
