Jon-Ryan

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

 

Fundamental to my business is being authentic, professional, utmost integrity, putting my clients first and just being good at my job. I would be honored to assist you.


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 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.
